RE: No shore power. 33c Sunova

RV is 50 amp. House receptacle is 30 amp. Will keep batteries charged with portable devices. Made an appointment with shop, but busy till early October. Thanks for all advice. Felt reassured when generator gave power to all outlets.

RE: Crossing the border a number of Different days --ArriveCAN

We just got home from our two month trip to Alaska. We took the ferry up to Haines and crossed into Canada on the 15th. We had to get a negative covid test in Haines and completely fill out the ArriveCan app. You know when you are done when it gets you a confirmation number. After crossing you will have to complete another virtual covid test in Canada on day one. We planned on stopping in both Skagway and Hyder to see the bears on our way home. I contacted Canada border crossing and found out we had to have a negative covid test within 72 hours of each border crossing plus the virtual test one in Canada. Too much tests for us so drove straight home to Montana. Catching the Jasper and Banff national parks

RE: No shore power. 33c Sunova

Thanks for all advice. I did check my wall outlet and it does have full power. I used my battery charger and was able overnight to bring the chasis battery to full power and start the Sunova This gave a charge to the coach batteries. Used your advice and started generator. It made that clicking sound and the microwave came on so I now have electrical power. So is the transfer box the problem as to why I don't have shore power. I'll run the generator for a while to get all the batteries back to full charge. What do I check next. Thanks

No shore power. 33c Sunova

We just got home from a great 2 month vacation. We took our pickup camper on the Alaska ferry to five ports. Great trip. The problem is, when I got home our 2016 33c Sunova is dead. It was plugged in all the time, but both coach batteries and engine batteries are dead and we have no shore power. Usually when I plug the rv in and turn on the breaker, I hear a clicking noise signaling that I have shore power. Today no click and no shore power. I have checked all breakers I can think of in the coach, but no power. I flipped all the breakers by the door, switched the inverter off and on. Checked the gfi outlets, but no power. Is there any master switch that could of been flipped while it was plugged in all summer. Any ideas will be appreciated. Thanks

RE: DIRECTV Real or Not

I also got this same email giving us a free year of NFL Sunday ticket. It says it's a reward for being loyal fans. Received the same email last year and we enjoyed the NFL Sunday ticket all season at no charge. Enjoy the upcoming season.

RE: Opinions on lightweight portable inverter/generators

Thanks for all of the opinions. Most of you agree that Honda is probably best, but the Champion at its cost and weight is a good option. Here's wishing everyone a great camping year. Our plans are to take our pickup camper on the Alaska Ferry System and stop and spend a week at six different places. Tried to do this two years ago, but plans canceled when the ferry workers went on strikes. Hopefully by late August the US Canada border will be open so we can drive home. If not, the ferry does also run south. Happy Camping!!!!

Opinions on lightweight portable inverter/generators

I am looking at purchasing a lightweight inverter/generator for my pickup camper. Looking at 2,000 to 2,500 watts. Mainly for coffee maker, nebulizer and recharging phones and computers. After reading many review and reviews, I have settled on either a Westinghouse IGen 2200 (46 pounds) Inverter Generator or Champion 2500 Watt Portable Generator (39 pounds). Thought about Harbor Freight Predator. Can some of you that own either of these give me any advise on which one of these would be a good purchase. Or do you own a different brand that you are happy with. Final question, do most of you purchase from big box stores, or try to find a place that will service what you purchase. Thanks for any advise.

RE: Craighead Forest Park, Arkansas

Nice park by a small lake. Only $15 for an electric site. Stayed here three times. Nothing fancy, but a good place for a couple of nights
