RE: Toyhauler with outdoor kitchen

I have not sent one. In case you did not know all the fridges in the outside kitchens that I have seen are 120v only. I know, I saw several of them and I was like WTF. Can't believe someone does not install a propane one.

RE: roof coating

That is actually a good idea but I don't know about the weight of it and how it would hold up to any flexing.

RE: roof coating

Anyone recoat their roof? What did you use? I just ordered the primer for epdm & topcoat. Kool Seal from KTS coatings. Hope it works. It needs something to get me through a few more years till I trade or reroof it. keeping my fingers crossed.Take some before and after pics and also what you had to remove up top (ie. AC covers, etc.)

RE: What did you do to your Toy Hauler today???

Back out in the RV today getting another winter project done. My Rig did not come with a heater vent in the bathroom. I could see that the heater duct for the bedroom ran right through the bathroom vanity. So I bought what I needed to put in a heater vent. One concern though is getting very much air out of your newly added vent. You used a straight T fitting, should have been a "T-Wye" fitting, kind of looks more like a Y than a T. If you have both vents wide open you might not get much air into the bathroom as there's more pressure drop there than straight through. But then again you don't need as much air in a small bathroom so it might just work out O.K. I bring this up as HVAC is my business. C'mon now. The bathroom? This is a very small space and the back pressure from the bedroom will provide more than enough heat to the bathroom.

RE: 50 amp service, Inverter vs Converter

Also, that is why I like the inverter/charger combo. I can delegate how much power I actually want charging my batteries. Thus, if I am running my Honda 2000 generator, I can delegate a small amount to the batteries and a larger amount to the 12v applications so the generator is not running like a bat out of hell.

RE: 50 amp service, Inverter vs Converter

Don't let the pictures get to you. The converter is a separate unit that sits behind the fuse panel. You do not need the entire package as in the link. That is for a trailer that does not have one at all. If you are "gutting" the trailer, then have at it. If you plan on leaving the original panel, don't wast your money/effort on a completely new setup. If you have seen the converter, it is a box that sits behind the 12v panel somewhere. Just pull your old one and replace with the powermax or similar.

RE: 50 amp service, Inverter vs Converter

The batteries get what is left out of that 45 after the other loads are taken care of. Agreed. Thus, you should look at a larger amp converter like the PowerMax 100 Amp Converter Power Max PM3-100 because of the size of your battery bank. Thus, your batteries will get a good charge no matter how many 12v appliances you have on and are on shore power or generator power.

RE: 50 amp service, Inverter vs Converter

That depends on what you want to do. The 45A converter is the charging capacity and now how much power you have. You have not said how many batteries you are going to have and how much you really plan to dry camp. Are you looking for convenience with your inverter solution or more plywood interior with minimal amenities? It sounds like you will be on shore power (generator or hookups) so in theory, you will only have a battery or two. Two ways to do what you want: 1) High AMP charging converter (100 AMP) with a separate inverter to handle a couple of outlets. Problem is you have to turn the inverter on unless you step up to a inverter with an auto on/off switch which you can mount in the trailer. 2) An inverter/charger like the Freedom 458 solves both problems charging and inverting. Just pick a gang of plugs from the Elec. panel and those will be on your inverters 15A run. If you dry camp a lot, go with 4 batteries (ie four 6 volts) and go with an inverter/charger like the Freedom 458. You can easily tap into existing outlets based on your elec. panel. If you are hooked up to shore power a lot, then go with a 2000w inverter with a remote on/off (like a Xantrex). You will have to tap into which run for outlets.

RE: Generator / Carb Part description or number?

You are referring to the anti-backfire solenoid. Just remove it and cut the needle off with a pair of dikes, the solenoid is around $70. It is actually called a fuel shutoff solenoid and I believe this is what you are looking for: EBAY

RE: It is a BIG desert!

... When I see those pre-carved camp site race tracks we never stop and just keep looking for a new one. Amazing how those kids just ride and ride and ride. Good strategy when looking for a site to camp away from large groups and kids. And I have almost driven right into the tracks while coming in late at night. They are like mini mining pits. Have to be careful.

RE: It is a BIG desert!

One guy with to small boys was 20 feet from us, set up cones and his boys rode their quads around his trailer and cones coming 5 feet from our trailer. I could not believe that. The dust and noise would not stop. Plus what if they hit our trailer and got hurt, not to mention the damage to the trailer. I had to actully move my truck out farther and turn it in the direction of his trailer and spot to stop the boys from riding so close to us. I know exactly what you mean.
