RE: refrig fan

Do older refers not chill very well? I have no issues with mine keeping food cold and not freezing them in the fridge side.

RE: Storing with blank tanks 1/4 full???

Why tempt fate? Drain the tanks. Tempt fate? What in the world does that mean? ----- They are poly/plastic tanks. It's not like poop is going to eat through it or cause some kind of explosion. Fill it with water to 3/4+ mark to dilute and wait till you get to the next campground to dump them. You just dont want the tank low and dried crud sticking to the walls. As previously mentioned, add tank deodorizer/cleaner with the fresh water. Because if it dries to the bottom of the tank it won't be pretty. He wants to store it for months. Huh??

RE: Max Depth of discharge

Yeah, I am prob going to run this dealer battery low and not really care. Give it an early death and have a good reason to go get 2GC's again.

RE: Max Depth of discharge

So not going under 12.1v is a a safe bet for now I guess? We prob do 10 nights w/o shore power, and 20-25 with it, each season. If I get over 30 nights - with my weekend warrior work schedule - I am golden. Might go to Costco and get some 6v's after we get back next week. The link gobb posted shows this chart: http://www.marxrv.com/12volt/voltchart1.gif

Max Depth of discharge

Whats the max depth of discharge on deep cycles again? Percentage and voltage? For double GC 6v and/or single 12v? (I had thought they were different) I replaced my TT last June which had 2GC 6v and havent upgraded the new one yet. It still has the single deep cycle 12v house battery from the dealer. Now that NYS is finally out of lockdown, and the TT is dewinterized, we are taking off next week. I had all this chart voltage percentage numbers in my brain last season but some stuff *just don't stick in there* like it used to.

RE: Most expensive camp chair!

Unless all the pins in the plastic foot pads and every other joint are stainless steel they will rust like every other folding chair does. Sand and dust will clog up the feet and sliding parts and the legs will eventually jamb. Some stuff should be moderately inexpensive and therefore replaceable. It's all about the math. I doubt this $300 chair will last longer then six lifetimes of my $50 chair.

RE: 12v usb in wall charging socket installation?

Can you tap into wiring to a lighting circuit? Most are protected by a 15 amp fuse, so use #14 wire. Okay now that I am digging around, ^this^ got me thinking with an 'ahh ha'! The Furion radio/dvd player is in the wall console under the TV and right where I want the socket. Can I just tap into that 12v line with a wire run of less than two feet? Its a 15a fuse. I guess I should check the radio manual to see how many amps it draws first? It doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the proper way to do it or rated properly, but this is exactly what I did in our old trailer...tapped into the radio power wire to install USB jack nearby. New trailer has a ton of USB jacks...I guess that’s a premium addition to trailers now. Okay great & thanks! Just bought THIS little socket with a built in power switch. Going to take the radio out tomorrow and see whats what. The manual isnt really specific on how much 12v power draw. I lists "4x24 W RMS" which is 24w for each of the 4 speakers max, I assume. If that's right then 24x4= 96w max 96 watts / 12 volts = 8 amps (there is a 10a blade fuse on the radio itself) 8a radio + 6a (2x 3a USB jacks) is 11 amps. 15 amp fuse at the power panel and hopefully this set up should be good to go. https://i.ibb.co/XzNjNXf/20200612-213547.jpg height=400 width=300

RE: 12v usb in wall charging socket installation?

I do have a open fuse terminal in the power center, which is close to where I want the socket. I should be able to just run a 12v auto wire from this lug to the socket and install the correct size fuse, right? Is the negative wire terminal behind the 12v board? https://ibb.co/pxmjTdZ/im https://i.ibb.co/0cwyLrZ/20200612-201307.jpg height=500 width=300 https://i.ibb.co/HLZqxFh/20200612-191848.jpg height=300 width=450

12v usb in wall charging socket installation?

My 32ft TT has only one double 12v usb charging socket in the front bedroom. While there are numerous 120v outlets that we plug regular phone chargers into when we have shore power at campsites, the one 12v socket is a bit annoying when we dry camp. My previous TT had 12v usb sockets in each kids bunk and at the center tv console area. I see they have sockets on AMAZON that I am hoping to install. Apart from physically running 12v wire from the battery or kill switch in the front pass through, would there be any problems with cable length or circuit overload? Or is the wattage so low it shouldnt matter? What guage wire cable should I run if I need say 20ft to the tv area?

RE: RV Cover

Steve, that's why I told my Realestate agent NO HOA's. S Because HOAs are invariably run by busybodies and power trippers. I find it to be a ridiculous concept. Agree to let your neighbors tell you what to do? No thanks. Sorry to derail the thread (or continue the derailing), but HOAs are not run by busybodies and power trippers. They are run by residents who have a copy of the agreement that is supplied to and signed by every homeowner who lives in the neighborhood. HOAs are designed to keep neighborhoods from becoming eyesores and protect home values. We have next door neighbors who have complained that they moved to our neighborhood (and out of the city) so the could do whatever they want. Whatever they want includes parking half a dozen cars in their yard, having a dirt path beside their driveway to get in and out because they have 8-10 cars at their house often, storing their wine cooler on their front porch, mowing every 4-6 weeks, whether the yard needs it or not in Houston, etc. They signed an agreement to abide by the rules in the covenant when they purchased their house. Now they are upset because they didn't actually read them and aren't allowed to live like trash. You don't want to live by HOA rules? Just don't buy in a neighborhood that has one and sign the agreement, then complain about the rules you agreed to. And No, I am not on the HOA board nor do I have any intentions of joining. But I do intend to abide by the rules I agreed to when I bought my house and I expect my neighbors to do likewise. Totally agree. The people who complain about HOA's are usually the selfish ones who have zero respect for their neighbors or even their own yards. Keep the ghetto in the ghetto, and the Billy's on their Hills. I like my neighborhood clean and classy.
