RE: Receiver Bike Racks

Swagman makes the Dispatch, Escapee and E-Spec that are good racks that are RV approved. I have a Dispatch and carry two bikes on the back of our 5th wheel. I can see the handlebar of one bike in the camera, and it never even quivers. The drawbar is threaded and it bolts to the receiver so there is no movement. I added lights to my rack. I felt like two bikes made it difficult to see the trailer lights from some angles. Just powered them with a trailer plug.

RE: furnace problems

Is there a battery connected somewhere or are you relying on a 12V converter? My guess is between the fan and the converter 1000W isn’t enough.

RE: what material would work for this?

Something you need to consider is air circulation. Water will condense on the cold glass during cool weather. If you cover it, you have the potential for mold or water damage. Maybe spacing it off the window a little would be worth looking into.

RE: Question on gas alarm

Interesting question. From an article on gas alarms: “If you buy a residential gas detector system, make sure you get the right one, O'Shea said. Natural gas customers should purchase a detector that can sense methane gas, while propane customers should purchase a propane detector.” So it would appear that a propane detector such as we have in our RVs would not detect methane, which is a component of sewer gas. Dave That may be dated information. It’s hard to even find a unit that doesn’t claim to detect both propane and methane. My suspicion is that they can only label them with a particular gas if it was tested by a standards organization for that gas but that most of them in general detect flammable gases and vapors regardless of the label.

RE: One 6V battery discharging really fast

As mentioned above you might have lost a cell. You can try what's called an "equalization charge" and see if the bad battery can still be used. Wonder if the possible bad cell actually looks different if you shine a flashlight at night down the water holes. I would not try to equalize a battery with a shorted cell. It likely has a mechanical failure which is very likely to create a spark which is a very bad thing with battery cells that are being overcharged. A cell adding no voltage to the battery doesn’t indicate a charging issue, but rather an electrical short.
