RE: How to keep a TC from being stolen when not on the truck?

Don't know about a trailer, but there is a lock that goes around the hitch pin on a 5er and I assume that they would have a like lock for a trailer coupling. They would have to destroy the hitch to get the lock off. Then of course, they could not steal it anyway.

Flickering Lights and Battery Charging fuse

Two item: For those that have a Carriage Cameo (mine 2012) where is the fuse that goes to the battery. If this is blown the battery won't charge. I think I found it but am not sure. 2. I have a new AGM 12V gel battery in my 5er. With the converter/charger on the battery voltage drops under load (100AH at 850CCA). The Charger/converter will hold the lights for a short time, but also when the volts drop to 12.6 +- I get the flickering. I tested the unit and according to manufacture it is putting out the proper voltage with and without load. All ground wires in the forward compartment seem tight and good. I have not checked the frame ground yet. ANY RECOMMENDATIONS WHY VOLTAGE DROPS AND I CAN'T RUN 12v FOR EXTENDED PERIOD OF TIME?

RE: Coleman rooftop a/c

I have a 2012 5er. I have a Coleman heat pump in the front and a/c in the rear. The t-stats are different. One has "heat" setting. If you have 2 heat pumps be sure the t-stats are both for the heat pump and one not just Air only. Otherwise, I can't help. You might check the connections on the one that works with the one that doesn't to see if they are both the same. Also, if old pump in the rear was A/C and now a Heat pump the wire gauge and/or breaker might be different. Good Luck!

RE: What roof vent covers for Fantastic Fans

I have a Maxxair cover. There are different ones, so go to their site and choose the one you need. I got mine in 2012 and still excellent shape, but dirty at the moment.

RE: Battery

Currently I have 1 12V unit and can not fit another. It is a Super Start SSB 31DCM. I power a 12V compressor type fridge and all other 12V RV lights, etc. So I need 1 reliable 12V battery. 2 large wont fit. I am looking for something under $200.00. Brand and Model please as there are different models of specific brands of 12V Deep Cycle. I dont think 2 6V will fit.

Battery

As you can see I have a fifth wheel, and I am trying to find a replacement Deep Cycle battery. Who out there has had good luck with a particular brand for their 5er that lasts. Please include brand and Amp hours or name on battery so I can look it up. The one I have now is less than 2 years old and I believe it is causing me problems. I have a 12V Dometic fridge, so I will be be relying on it heavily for use. I am usually connected to shore power.

RE: Have just lost Goof, my 13 year old Aussum Shepherd.

Sorry for your loss. I have 3 dogs with me in my RV (Cremated) and hope they will join me when I go.

RE: Trailer brakes not working

Jack up your trailer, have someone spin the wheels and then apply the break. It should stop the wheel. If this does not work you have a wired problem.

RE: Replacing my Electric Refrigerator

After our Norcold went and much looking we purchased a Dometic 12V fridge. All I will say is WE LOVE IT. It also fit the Norcold space. Check it out. We have the DMC4101.

RE: Trailer Directional not working

Found the problem. Hope this might help someone else out. All the suggestions above were good and I followed through with all of them as well as others. After all, I kept thinking what is the common denominator to both lights and I kept thinking "ground". Keep in mind one bulb was NEW and the other old, but as I recall last time we went camping the directionals did not work. Well, I took out each bulb and checked with my VOM the continuity between each contact point and the side of the bulb (ground). Only one contact point in BOTH bulbs had continuity. I installed 2 NEW bulbs that I had purchased today and checked them. Behold, continuity with ground on both contact points. Plugged in the truck to the RV and tested. Surprise EVERYTHING worked. What are the odds of having to new bulbs that are bad?

RE: Trailer Directional not working

When I used a jumper on the trailer connector I got 12 V for the lit back lights, but none no voltage for either directional. I am going to check the truck today, in case there is a problem there. Took apart the RV connector and cleaned it. All seem good there. If it was a bad ground, I am thinking the rear tail lights would not work, so there has to be a common denominator somewhere for the direction filament.

Trailer Directional not working

Getting ready for trip. Neither the left or right directionals are working on my 2012 Cameo 5er. The lights work, but no stop lights or directionals. I checked the plug for the truck and I have voltage for the lights, but not for blinkers, directional or stop lights. All the same filament on the bulb. For what I can tell all other 12V systems are working. Any ideas? Is there a separate fuse box just for 12V? If not any ideas to get them working. It is not nice to drive without break or blinker lights.... We live in the RV full time and it has been sitting on our pad for about 2 years without moving. All worked last time we were out.

RE: fresh water hose

Cummins12v98 Thanks for your link. I have been searching for a good water supply outlet for a long time. I will be checking this out. It is hard to find good filters and hoses. I am tired of blue and white hoses leaking after a few years.

RE: Replacement of Suburban water heater...

I replaced mine a couple of years ago and if I remember some wire colors did not match, but I took photos before I disconnected anything. I doubt I still have the photos, but if I do I will edit this blog and try to send you the pics if you need them. I have a 10 gal elect/propane. Is yours the same?

RE: No power

In addition to the previous suggestions also check to be sure the electric feed wires under the slides are not pinched or cut fro slide movement. I had a like problem with my stove once. The propane lead was pinched shutting off the propane to the stove.

RE: tire pressure

I use the pressure noted on the tire, not the pressure printed on the vechile.
