RE: Running Hot!

Don't know where the power RPM range is on your engine but it is probably higher that the RPMs you were doing at 30mph in third gear.

If you have an RV you should have a decent multimeter. It will tell yo what is going on.

Alaska state park RV sites are only $15 to $20 a night. Most have no power or water. One location to dump.

RE: Want to add solar battery charger for storage use

Save your money, charge the batteries fully and disconnect the ground battery cable. Batteries will not lose their charge.

RE: Power gear hyd levelers low power

Bearings on the leveling motor go bad. If your reservoir and motor are behind the front grill water can get to the motor bearings. Mine started squealing, replaced the motor.

RE: Modified Sine wave inverter for seldom used microwave

Many still use a modified sine wave inverter, no problem there. Just know the microwave will be producing less heat.

RE: Battery charge

Your charger should supply a float voltage of around 13.2 -13.4 volts for a lead acid battery. If that 12.5 voltage was measured with the charger on and the battery connected the float voltage is to low from your charger.

RE: honeywell thermostat

You will need two thermostats. Wire the heat controls to just one.

RE: Dash AC

The F53 chassis has no vacuum system. the chassis makers have to add one to operate the heating/ac dash vent system. This system consists of a small 12v vacuum pump and a small vacuum tank and associated vacuum hoses that go to the dash controls. If there is no vacuum the default vent path is through the defrosters. Check all these vacuum lines around the pump and tank, usually under the hood in front.
