RE: Full timing question

Call me crazy but if I can't budget $150 per day I'm not full timing. WOW! That is crazy! I've been full timing now for almost 5 months, I have found great places to stay at great prices! I am currently in a nice park in Nevada, full hookups, $330 month + elec (about $30). When on the road spend $0 - $5 - $10 a day on camping. To each his own I guess....

RE: Rooftop solar

Wiring and controller rated to handle the additional panel? Additional panel bring your system to or beyond 1 solar watt for each battery AH? According to Go Power I am good to go for adding the panel to existing configuration. No idea what the AH is of my batteries they are new costco interstate group 27 DC 12v batteries, I have 2.

Rooftop solar

Hi All, I'm getting ready to add an additional solar panel to my already existing factory installed solar system (same panel and manufacturer). I have a walk on roof that has a thin skin over it. My question...can I "assume" that since its walk on that under that skin the roof is covered in plywood? Thanks!

Ac question

My 50 amp rv is on a 50 to 15 amp adapter, to a heavy duty extension cord that is plugged into a 20 amp outlet. Only thing running on electric in rv is the tv. Is it ok to run just the ac Fan?? Again, just the fan is running not cooling. Thanks!!

RE: Toilet and hot water pressure help.

Check my posts, I just had the same hot water issue on my new 2020 trailer! They had a crappy plastic check valve on the water heater, replaced it with a brass one and fixed the issue!!

RE: Jayco Hot Water Heater Problem

Could the check valve be bad on a brand new trailer? Of course it could be bad, it is a cheap plastic part. You should be able to find a quality check valve at Home Depot or Lowe's. Can you tell me if the black part in this picture is the check valve? And anything I should know about taking it off besides draining the tank?? Thank you!! https://gopro.com/v/nrvLm925ewJMZ

RE: Jayco Hot Water Heater Problem

Could the check valve be bad on a brand new trailer? I am having this exact problem. Very little pressure from hot water on all faucets! If the water is not hot it runs fine. Please help, pulling my hair out! I'm on the road. Thanks!!

RE: Can anybody tell me....

It wasn't all of you, just some of you and the remarks. If my question wasn't clear then someone could have said that. Anyway this is what I learned (and was looking for)..... The 2A reading is what was "being sent" to the batteries, even though it is sunny that is all the batteries needed at the time. When I turned on some lights and that number changed to 3.4A that is what was "being sent" to the batteries to compensate for the power being used. Don't know if I explained it right but I understand now.

RE: Can anybody tell me....

You're asking if the numbers are good, bad or ugly. And the answer is.... it depends. :) For example, if you have a roughly 40W panel, 2A output in full sun is good; but if you have 200W of solar panels, 2A is ugly. Thank you, thank you!! You are the only one who basically answered my question!! I do have 200W, that 2A was not direct sun. But now I understand what that number is telling me. I have been a part of this forum many years (as you can see on the side) and it used to be a great place to come for help. After my last few posts I am very disappointed. It feels like people just want to criticize and make you feel like an idiot for asking for a little help instead of actually ANSWERING the question or helping. Thank you again for answering my question!!

RE: Can anybody tell me....

Campermama; Let me guess. you don't know what A and Ahs stand for? HTH; John Wow! I know what it stands for, not a complete idiot and not what I'm asking here. Let me guess, you don't understand my question, do you?

RE: Can anybody tell me....

OP..please come back. Oh I'm here but my head is gonna explode! Still not sure if it's good bad or ugly. I will check out some YouTube stuff and see if I can figure it out.

Can anybody tell me....

In laymen terms please what these readings on my solar controller mean?? I don't know if these reading are good, bad, or ugly! Thank you!! https://gopro.com/v/LvaJ09R76Lgno https://gopro.com/v/zPvBdNXP7mr38

RE: Escapees

Good info but I wasn't asking for cheap or discount campgrounds! In fact my preference is boondocking! I have already checked the Escapees website extensively. What I was asking is how difficult is it to get into their campgrounds, are they always full? It would be nice to go to a campground once in a while for a few weeks or so. Sooooo ----> take 2....... Oh and by the way all of their CG's I checked out did not take reservations!
campermama 04/23/20 04:38pm RV Parks, Campgrounds and Attractions

Are any of you members of the Escapees? I am thinking about joining. Very interested in all of their RV parks as I travel as a full timer. I am just wondering if I travel to one of the parks will I be able to get in (as a member of course)? I would think they are pretty popular. I would want to stay for a minimum of a few weeks to maybe a month or two. I'm just worried about there being a spot when I get there. Thanks!!

RE: Wingard Air360+ with WiFI Router

My new trailer I just got has the Air 360+ (which works great for TV)! and it's ready for the wifi extender to be added (basically plug and play). I am getting ready to go full time so I did extensive research about this wifi extender. Conclusion - it is only as good as the area you are in. It costs ~$300 to add it. I decided I will change my Verizon plan to the top data unlimited plan and use my phone as a hot spot for streaming on the TV (its a smart tv) and for my computer use. This way wherever I have service I will have everything I need. Way better than having to hope for a decent wifi signal. Hope this helps!
