RE: timbrens

I got talked into putting Timbrens on 3 of the work vans. They did keep the vehicles more level with a heavy load, but that's the only good thing I can say about them. They effectively reduce suspension travel and all 3 had significantly rougher ride. I'd go with air bags, or just have better springs installed. I had the Timbrens removed from one of the vans & had another leaf installed in the spring pack & it was a big improvement. As I recall, the added spring was not much cost difference than having the Timbrens installed.

RE: How to eat a onion ring

A&W has the best onion rings I've had anywhere, anytime. They cut the onions in store, dip in batter & drain, then dip in the crumbs. After frying the outside is crispy & the onion inside is cooked, but still a little firm. The onion does not slide out of the crust. My gosh, I want some right now.

RE: generator stalls when converter tries to charge battery

If you have electric water heater, make sure that is off too. On mine that switch is on the WH itself. that element is a 1500 watt, and would for sure kill that EU1000. Otherwise, is your battery dead or heavily discharged? If so the converter will kick on high output to recharge, and could be your issue too. I don't want to hijack the OP's thread, but added my comments thinking maybe there may be something about some RV converters that doesn't play well with inverter generators. In my case, all 120V loads were turned off, just the charger & propane detector were on. Battery is in good shape & charged.

RE: generator stalls when converter tries to charge battery

I have a Honda EU1000 that won't run the on board charger either. With all 120V circuits turned off, the generator overload cuts out immediately when the trailer is plugged in. Not sure what is going on here. The carb has been cleaned & it runs fine.

RE: Plastic Fenders

I wonder how hard it would be to glass the back of them for added strength. I had the same issue with the screw holes being cracked. I just scuffed the back side around each hole & applied epoxy (slow cure, not the 5 minute kind). A stainless steel washer was also epoxied to each hole on the front side. After curing, I rattle can sprayed it with a new coat of white paint. That was over 2 years ago & that fender still looks like new with no cracks around the screw holes.

RE: Cheater adapter to run 50 amp

Some campground pedestals have the load side of the 30A breaker connected to the 30A receptacle as well as the line side of the 15A breaker. So a cheater cord won't gain you anything. All the load goes through the 30A breaker anyway.
