RE: AC 20amp breaker trips mid day

Where is your AC breaker panel located? Is it hot to the touch? Mine is in a closet and it gets incredibly hot. Breakers trip at lower currents when they get hot. I chased this issue a long time and used a current meter. Removing the cover of the AC panel found it far to hot inside. I made a tiny modification and the problem has subsided. At one time I kept the closet door open and an AC vent blowing on the face of the panel.

RE: HR44 Recordings. No access without antenna.

Keep on poking the menu button or the list button. Might come up.

RE: Weird thunking sound when charging lifeline AGMs

If it is actually a battery making the noise I would cover it with a blanket as I carefully take it out. Safety goggles, gloves, water hose nearby and on. No battery should ever make a noise like that. If the plates are somehow moving about this thing could be about to explode do to an internal short. Water anything down that might get splattered by acid. This is a no joke dangerous situation.

RE: "Cut" wires under hood of new Class C Ford chassis?

Bryan, that is amazing information. Are you aware of any wires under the dash that would be used for a trailer brake controller? If there is one pre-wired that can be used to send the signal forward from the toad. This may help the OP.

RE: Still battling water pump issue

These do a decent job This is worth the price. Waste of time - none is needed on the pump intake, only it's output, and short hoses like this will accomplish little other than lightening your wallet. You want a l-o-n-g length of soft potable water hose on the pump output, minimum 15' but the longer the better. I guess it didn't work on mine then. :h

RE: Still battling water pump issue

These do a decent job This is worth the price. The hoses allow you to install a nice loop on the input and output. Isolate the pump from the mounting area. Allowing the pump to shake and shimmy as well as the input and output hoses helps keep the shaking out of the rv.

RE: Batwing Antenna

Did you just forget to push the little button on the antenna box?? Splitters might show a short to an ohmeter. Did you re-scan with park cable settings on your tv? It is so easy to forget a step.

RE: Having a hard time with this one

As suggested, you need a voltmeter for the full picture. Finding a ground can be problematic for the voltmeter or the led's. I suggest finding a good ground first. There might be one near the light fixture or you can tap the light fixture ground. Once you have a ground then you can use a temporary connection with a thumbtack to pierce the wires associated with the switch. A simple 12 volt test light will accomplish the same thing. Most likely one side of the switch is 12 volts at all times and the switch simply passes that through. Without pictures it is more difficult of course.

RE: Still battling water pump issue

New to you unit? Did it always hammer? This hammering is very common and there are kits to calm them down. They can make a great deal of noise in some installations. Example of a cure There are kits sold that come with a couple of hoses to make the intake and output lines flexible. If Pex is connected directly to a pump it can really machine gun the whole rv.

RE: We are looking at combo washer dryer

Separate units might be nice but our combo does a great job. They spin like a mad dog and need to be solidly held down.

RE: 12V receptacle polarity

There were many positive ground trucks going into the early 70's.. It was very important to check them before installing two way radios. There were radios that had an internal plug to change them from negative to positive ground. As mentioned, it is good to remember that the black wire of the RV is often the HOT wire and in todays units that is positive. Just don't mistake the black wire 12 volts for 110 volts AC.

RE: DirecTV HD / Slimline for the RV

No self respecting engineer would ever follow those instructionsWhich ones? That is whey we field techs often had to make a product really work. Sometimes it was "ready, fire, aim" for the engineers. There was no way for them to test all possibilities and once in the field there were thousands of techs versus a small group of engineers. We had a tremendous feedback system to the engineers and they would literally stop the assembly line if we found an issue. But often, the leading cause of difficulties was not finding the one sentence in a 240 page manual that held the answer. Much like a Monaco manual. We used to say that reading the book would cause you to lose your amateur standing. Lots of fun in those days with leading edge technology coming out constantly.

RE: DirecTV HD / Slimline for the RV

If it doesn't work, read the book. If it still doesn't work, FOLLOW IT ! Words of wisdom from my High School electronic teacher. He was a very smart man.

RE: slide topper fabric replacement

Ditto Stone Vos. Strange name for a company but great service and the material is extremely strong. The threads are made from some incredible stuff. I replaced all of mine from them. The owners husband travels to many rv events and personally takes measurements and does free inspections of roofs at the same time. He really is a great guy and his wife is the tops. Yeah, a bit of a pun but they really are a great company. If you have questions, he has the answers.

RE: Over the Air Antenna

Get a long test cable and connect it to your source, cable or over the air source. Now connect directly to each tv one at a time and rescan. If you get different results and they are only a bit difference then as mentioned you just have more horse power with one tv receiver. If however you have a substantial difference then the weak one is probably do for an upgrade. If anyone here decides to buy new televisions for the RV's be sure to find one with a built in OTAR receiver. I found my fancy new larger screen tv does not have one and I had to add another box. So that means a different remote of course and another INPUT change when switching to that box. I didn't make the same mistake when I bought the new tv for the bedroom. It has the receiver built in and works great. It is amazing how many functions these new Visio televisions with 4K have.

RE: Thinking about changing from DirecTV to Dish

Direct TV has become very RV unfriendly. Impossible to work with.

RE: Really weird power issue

If the 30 amp fuse is actually a breaker and your battery positive cable is lying around shorted to ground your converter/charger is trying to charge the missing battery but is instead feeding that power to the shorted positive cable. The breaker is probably cycling on and off enough to get hot. A fuse would burn open IF the short is a solid low resistance short but if the short is not making a good contact it could allow almost enough current to blow a fuse. Pulling the fuse removed the short so to speak and allowed power to get to the other circuits. There may not be enough power from your converter alone to run an awning or heavy current item. Your converter could be a real wimp and just big enough to charge the battery but not big enough to run any big loads. The 30 amp fuse/breaker could be misleading however correct in that it is just that size to allow the battery to supply that much current FROM the battery and not sized for the charging ability. That is probably not clear but in any case you will find the short on that positive cable somewhere.

RE: Lost 12V Ground 1 circuit Interior Lights, Ideas on finding

You have an OPEN ground circuit. Is it possible there was a screw through some metal mounting that you took out that was used as a ground? Perhaps the motor mounting was being used as the ground. It is hard to suggest where to ground without a picture but yes, making a new ground point is ok although not ideal.

RE: sacramento

Thousand Trails North of Sacramento in East Nicholas. Might be darn full with all of the evacuees from fires just North of that.

RE: 12 volt system problem

Make sure you didn't reinstall the battery reversed. If you did there will hopefully be blow fuses that protected things.
