RE: Portable or Hardwired EMS?

Hardwired! In addition to the other advantages that were listed: Why add another plug and socket? I often see where the plug or socket have burnt up on the portable units. If the receptacle on the portable gets a high resistance, you will get low voltage in your unit. I remove the wire from the input of the power panel, connect it to the EMS and then add a short cable from the EMS output to the input of the power panel. And if it’s a 50 amp unit, the hardwired will protect your unit from a power cord fault. IMHO, an open neutral on the power cord (or source) is the most important protection.

RE: Built-in microwave sounds sick

My built-in Microwave in my 2005 trailer recently started sounding sick. It sounds like its slow to startup and the microwave light inside goes dim. It still works but has the appearance and sound of loosing power somewhere. I have a voltage gauge plugged in one of the outlets and when the microwave is on it plummets into the red. Is there something I should be looking for? Am I missing something? This does not sound like a microwave problem! If your voltage is going low you need to quit using the microwave and find out why. Does anything else pull the voltage monitor into the red zone? I’d start with checking the RV plug and power at the pedestal.

RE: No power at the RV outlet to the Toad on my Winnebago Navion

Has it been setup and quit working or are you doing this for the first time? I can’t remember the details but I had to add things when setting up our 2014 Via, which we no longer have. All of those outputs were fused in one of the two fuse locations: to the left of the drivers feet and in the left base of the drivers seat. If I recall correctly, I had to find the fuse info online. I ended up changing all the fuses to ones that light when they blow....tremendous help. FYI, if you are setting it up for the first time, our Via would not run led lights or even show the bulb voltages on a meter, they had to have a load such as incandescent. Sorry I can’t help you more. If you join the Facebook or Yahoo groups for the View/Navion/Via’s you will get immediate answers. There used to be 3 that covered: General info; technical info; and mods. Good luck!

RE: Replacement steps

We got the 3 step MORryde version and they are great. We didn’t use their handrail. It was in the way and the foldout one on the TT worked better for the 2 or 3 step model.

RE: Household refrigerator to replace Norcold N641?

I’m not familiar with your Norcold model but we did replace our 6 cu ft Dometic with a 10.1 Magic Chef residential from Home Depot.

RE: Mercedes ML350 towing hitch with travel trailer

I had the same model and year car. The owners manual said that you cannot use a WDH! I think it is because of the way the hitch is cantilevered off the unibody frame. Have you towed with it? Did you have airmatic suspension. I heard that caused issues when the car had. Mine is just the regular suspension. I will re-read the manual. Thank you. I had the regular suspension. I never towed anything with it except a utility trailer. TT had too much tongue weight so we sold the MB and got a RAM pickup. We’ve now changed to a 5th wheel on a semi-permanent site in FL and snowbird.

RE: BlueTooth Brake Controller

We had this Prodigy one on our last TT. The control unit mounted on the TT frame and plugged into our truck. The TT cable plugged into it. Really handy when pulling with multiple trucks ...and my knees weren’t constantly hitting it. You did not actually “need” anything in the truck for it to work. But it came with a remote control that plugged into the cigarette letter for a display, setup, and a manual control. I hung mine from the air vent right by the shift lever where you could see it and access the manual switch easily. It did pair with the unit on the TT but I’m not sure if it was Bluetooth or not. It was the best, easiest to use brake controller that I ever used.

RE: Schwintek slide out of whack

Does the slide controller show any error codes? LCI has some nice info on their web site.

RE: Buy Remote Thermostat For AC (controlled by Android app) ?

Make sure that your new one can replace your current thermostat before you buy. Dometic uses a proprietary serial data connection between the thermostat and AC/furnace. I’ve been looking for a WiFi, programmable replacement for years.

RE: Seeking Advice from Mercedes ML350 drivers

I had a 2014 ML350 and you cannot use a WDH. I think it’s due to the way Mercedes mounts the trailer hitch frame. Sold it and bought a pickup to tow the travel trailer.

RE: cable splitter location

Not the right year but here’s a List of some locations. Why not run the cable in thru the satellite connection?

RE: Electric Fridge, Now That Hole in the Side..

If you close off the outside vents you are going to come up with some sort of ventilation for the condenser. Why, my residential fridge at home doesn’t vent to the outside? In my case, the condenser is in the bottom and I figured that air would go in at the bottom and out the top and sides, just like in a house. I have been thinking about closing the top vent though to prevent moisture and outside temps from leaking in. You think that’s a bad idea? compressor fridges don't need ventilation they need circulation. all fridges give off heat, a fridge with no ventilation will heat up your trailer, big difference between a 100 sqft trailer vs 1000 sqft house! I don’t think that heat from the refrigerator is a big concern. Our 10 cubic foot residential model only uses 140 watts when it’s running. And our 40’ 5th wheel is at least 400 sq. ft. with the 4 slides open.

RE: Electric Fridge, Now That Hole in the Side..

I put tape on the back side of our bottom one but left the top alone. If it rained hard from a certain direction, our back one would leak at the gap between the vent and it’s frame so I caulked it with Dap. I did have to open it once after caulking it but it was easy to do ...just used a knife to cut the caulking and then re-caulked later.

RE: New GPS needed

We’ve been really happy with our Garmin. Had a RV760 for the TT but included it with the TT when we sold it because it had a wireless backup camera and was large. We still have a 3 year old smaller unit in the car that we use often.

RE: What's it look like under there?

It might be inside - Our fresh tank in a Winnebago was under the bed

RE: RV Toilet

I bought a set of Horst probes to try in our 5 th wheel that’s on a permanent site in FL when we return there in Oct ish.

RE: Assistance with opening bathroom roof vent

I used one of these extensions on one fan that my wife was too short to reach. On a fan in the middle that was taller I used two. I had to get a 8-32 threaded rod from Lowes and hold in on with a double nut (screw in the rod first, then slide on the extensions, then the knob, then the nuts. Assemble loosely first and Mark the length and cut off the rod and then reassemble and tighten the nuts.
