RE: AC Silencer

We have two of them. My brother bought one too. They work well and the filter inside is much superior to the one in the original setup. We full time and the noise from the AC units is incessant in the heat of Central Florida.

RE: Wireless 2-sensor fridge thermometer?

Wereless Thermometers This is a three set pack that uses wi-fi and/or blue tooth. I use this to monitor the critical range of temperatures required to store vials of medicine. The medicine comes with a logging thermometer but I want to know if there is a problem occurring do to a door being left open or a refer failure. It sends me a text if the temps go out of my programmable range. It comes with three sensors so can monitor other areas of concern. The other advantage is if we leave our fur baby alone we can keep an eye on the temps and if there is a failure in the RV we will get an alert if the temps go too high.

RE: Moving

Pack Rat. They drop off the size of container you need. Pick it up when you want. Stored and then moved our stuff from Calif to Florida. Dropped it off and we took our time unloading it. Special lifts raise the containers gently. Great company.

RE: Camco Ven Geri GENERATOR EXHAUST EXTENSION KIT

The water will pass through and drop to the ground since there is no closure between the genturi and the exhaust pipe.

RE: Trouble shooting the cause of Charge Line blown fuse

Is this a new problem? That is, was it working at one time? If it was working then you need to take the connectors apart for an inspection. They often have loose wires that short and chasing that with a voltmeter may be incredibly difficult. If it only does it with the RV plugged into the truck then inspect the trailer plug closely. I mean take it apart carefully. Heck, a simple screw rattling around inside can drive you crazy.

RE: Truck Battery discharging overnight

Replace the battery. Even a tiny drain can cause a bad battery to do very strange things. IF your alternator is charging properly you have a very serious drain to take the battery to 8 volts. A battery this old should be replaced without hesitation. Batteries are not purhchased/bought. We merely rent them for a time. They can fail from the shelf or last far beyond what we should expect. Since your battery has been run down so low many times it is crippled in any case. Fighting customer resistance to "buy a new battery" over forty plus years diagnosing things, even though I never sold any car batteries, was like pulling teeth without novicane. With a fire chief with a two month old vehicle kept coming back saying the radios were running his battery down and his "mechanic" said it was the radios running the battery down in just two hours I just gave up. Went to the parts store and bought a new battery for his new vehicle. Gave the vehicle back to him and asked him to see if it solved his issue. Sure enough, problem solved. I did not tell him how it was resolved until he reported back. My point is, unless you have the equipment to tell me how much current is being drawn I can only use my vast experience to suggest what is the most common problem.

RE: Tips on asking friends for mootchdocking?

I have a second RV pad with full hookups. Includes OTAR and Direct TV if wanted. A dear friend has spent up to two months at a time here. We come and go and do not have to entertain each other but we often make dinners and share our favorite recipes. The last stay I warned them NOT to buy us gifts etc in return. They left a $100 bill kind of hidden when they left this time to cover electricity. I know they just had to do this to satisfy themselves and not burden us with the extra costs. It is worth it to have friends and family nearby.

RE: AC doesn't keep up with heat

Thanks for the input everyone. OK, guess it's normal then. If I ever have to replace it, I'll put in a 15K unit. I went from 15K units to 13.5 on our 42 foot diesel pusher. We have dual pane windows and cover the front glass from the outside. We cannot see any difference in the size of the units. We live in Central Florida where it is miserable in the Summer. Shade is your friend and getting sideways to the sun if possible. Close off the sleeping area during the day if possible. One AC in that unit will not keep up so adding one might be possible.

RE: Oops

We pay for our education. Glad it was only that and thanks for sharing.

RE: Engine blew white smoke died then generator

The engine and transmission talk to each other. They protect each other. You can get all kinds of strange problems with clogged filters. I may have missed it but you said you had not changed the regular fuel filter yet. If not, why not? Have you put algae cleaner in the tank? A huge load of algae could take a bit of work to clean. I carry two sets of fuel filters on board at all times and a syphon hose to pull fuel out of the tank for priming the filters if needed. Follow the directions on the side of the filter for filling.
