RE: shutting down generator with air conditioner running

The ONAN Auto Genstart system for the ONAN generator has a function which monitors the temperature in the RV and starts the generator if the temp goes above a user preset. This function is particularly for boondockers. The idea is to have your AC set to "ON", and when the temperature rises, the genny comes on and runs the AC to keep the RV temp down, such as for pets, etc. I wonder why ONAN would contradict themselves regarding this practice?? BTW, I have been doing this for several years while boondocking. Thus far my ONAN seems to be handling it.

RE: Shore works ATS in and out on Gen power

I guess your ATS is checking the genset voltage and seeing something it doesn't like. Check to insure 240 volts between two hot leads (i.s. red and black). Also, the neutral (white wire) from the genset and the ground (green) from the genset has to be bonded (connected) together at some point. Most likely at the ATS. Verify that as well.

RE: Refrigerant Fill Port

"LP" as in "low pressure", not "LP" as in "liquefied petroleum", the stuff in the tank that you use to cook food. Just a bit confusing.

RE: Is this normal for a 30 amp breaker

The mechanism that makes breakers trip is heat. Typical for breakers to get warm under load. Hot would be a potential problem. New breaker is a few bucks. If it concerns you, put a new one in there. Otherwise, enjoy the cool A/C

RE: Refridgerator keeps kicking off

It is most likely a Norcold 1200LRIM in that coach.

RE: Refrigerant Fill Port

If I understand the questions, I don't believe there is a fill port for the refrigerant.

RE: DP side mount radiator is aluminum or copper better?

copper can be fixed aluminum is throw away The first one I changed and also this one are both copper and both got chucked in the scrap.

RE: DP side mount radiator is aluminum or copper better?

Interestingly, the manufacturers offer the exact same warranty for both aluminum and copper of 2 years. I would think the more expensive one would have a longer warranty.

DP side mount radiator is aluminum or copper better?

I have a 2000 American Coach with a Spartan chassis. The side mount radiator is leaking and must be replaced which I am going to do myself. I have been studying replacement radiators and many comments state aluminum is better than copper because it conducts heat better than copper. As a bonus, the aluminum radiators are typically about $200 cheaper. The aluminum radiator typically has plastic tanks and the copper radiator has brass tanks. The copper built is older technology and has many supporters of course. I am also considering installing a baffle below the radiator to shield it from dust blown up by the fan. Any thoughts or personal experience with either of the two types??

RE: Dometic AC compressor

I love how 6 people recommended hard start kits... how exactly does this fix the problem of it running fine then in 3 minutes a loud bang? the unit obviously has issues. Guess I missed the part about a "loud bang". Just went back to the OP and guess what? I missed it again. Maybe you can point out to me where it is??? Or maybe you can point out to the six of us where it is? He stated loud noise, not a loud Bang. Noise===bang same thing:h Doug Doug, you are correct, the OP stated "loud noise", is this post it was translated to loud bang. Subtle difference but significant.

RE: Nightmare experience with RV service center

Every time I read about one of these CW fiascos on this forum, I invariably see a comment from "Good Sam Care Team", asking to talk with the OP, supposedly to clear up the problem. We never hear any more about it, but CW service never gets any better. Which leads me to believe they make no effort to improve their service, but rather to attempt to quiet anyone who complains. And despite the number of horrific service issues we read about, people still patronize CW service. I stand amazed.

RE: Propane Tank on my Minnie. Should I replace it?

Wire brush and paint. Your tank is an ASME tank not under the same rules as portable DOT cylinders, yours doesn’t expire, it is just subject to visual inspection. Exactly...... Find another propane vendor cause that one has head up dark hole. X2. Get another vendor. This guy doesn't know what he is doing and shouldn't be trusted. All he knows about are "cylinders" which are used on travel trailers. You have an ASME "tank". Totally different.

RE: Flying J Dedicated RV Lanes

Have stopped at many Flying J. They offer the convenience of RV lanes, free overnight parking spaces, dump station, propane, fresh water, and a sit down restaurant. They don’t always have the lowest prices but I value the amenities.

RE: Refrigerator Change in a Class A Gasser

I really, really, really wish people who are ignorant of the actual performance of residential refrigerators in RVs would stop spreading rumors that are just not true. Thousands of residential refrigerators are being used every day in RVs and there are no reports anywhere of massive failures. My Magic Chef has about 30000 miles and it is fine. I use it all the time when boon-docking. It's FINE!!! It uses less power than my Norcold 1200LRIM. Repeat! It uses less electric power than my 3 time failed Norcold. It runs ALL the time, as in ALL the time on power from a mod sine inverter. It stays cold. It WORKS. It is cheap. It WORKS. It is reliable. IT WORKS. I don't understand how these stupid rumors got started but they are false. Please stop spreading them.

RE: Burned Neutral Wires at the Buss in the Breaker Box

Your BUSS screws will appear tight because the BUSS got hot and seized some of the screws. If you have an Open/loose Neutral on a 50 amp RV, it will usually NOT burn or melt anything. It will supply 220 to the RV and burn out some appliances The Open on a 50 amp can be at the CG pedestal or on the Shore cord or at the Main electrical breaker panel. Doug Excellent post as usual from Doug.

RE: Burned Neutral Wires at the Buss in the Breaker Box

Is it a 50 amp service? If its not, it's loose connections = high resistance where the burn is. Resistant at location A does not cause a burn at location B. The problem is precisely where you see it. A 50 amp service, if miswired at the source, can potentially overload the neutral. So long as it's correctly wired to 220v, the neutral carries only the DIFFERENCE between the two hot wire currents. If the source outlet has both 50 amp sources at just 110v, the neutral will carry the SUM of the two hot wire currents. No outlet should be wired at 50 amp /110-120v but you hear occasional accounts of people who've encountered a "cheater" 50 amp plug. Sounds like you know what you are talking about! Good post.
