RE: Help a Newbie, question about gas vs. diesel

"Towing a fw" How much of payload are you going to have left after hooking up to 10,000 fw to a 3/4 ton?

RE: TT brake performance after rewiring + shoe/drum replacement

Thanks for posting. If I remember right you are into electric type stuff. For me elec sometimes a mystery. I'm going to do mine soon I hope. Your upgraded wire size, how did you determine the size? And what connections did you go with? (I was thinking of Soderling and shrink tube. ThanksDexter has the wire gauge table below. I didn't know it existed until someone posted in my earlier thread. I used automotive brake cable and the only place I could find #12 was at the local hitch shop. Not the most elegant method, but I tie wrapped it to the axle tubes and the propane pipe. The cable was way too large to pull into the axle tubes and I didn't want to pull down the coroplast. For splices, I soldered them and used shrink wrap and then tape over that. I also securely tie-wrapped the splices at the backing plates so they wouldn't get damaged from vibration. I'd rather see the backing plates designed so that the splices are inside the drum instead. https://i.imgur.com/DIL5wmRl.png width=400 Good info thanks

Battery cut off switch

Out of couriuosly, do oem"s install battery cut off switches to cut all power or leave some power "un-interuped". (Wondering if my tt is wired right.)

RE: Where to place campground stickers?

Get enough to make a nice laminated place mat out of them. Rotate place mats with your pic's of family, travels etc.

RE: Where to buy locking seal for cabover window glass

I couldnt find my leak until I turned it upside down in a bath tub and watched where water came in at. Cab over windows get a lot of vibrations imo.

RE: Where to buy locking seal for cabover window glass

Imo...Rubber just keeps out most of dust and junk. Several different sizes and shapes so I pulled window and took to glass shop that was familiar with RV windows, and had window resealed to window frame. One piece cab over windows big pain.

RE: Paying for public campgrounds

Check...because I put a $20 bill in one once and never did give me any change back:) Seriously check... cuz we've seen kids trying to fish money out with coat hangers. And easier to reconstruct your travels at a later date.

RE: Fridge on propane while driving

Very seldom anymore. $25.00 wireless temperature gauge tossed on dash. I can keep eye on temps. I can go all day driving in most weather without it running. Guess depends on fridg/freezer. Why? To save the $0.25 of propane or just like watching fridge temps? So far we've got 1 no, 1 I'm not sure what, contradicted himself. 1 rarely. Who cares picks side of the fence and the rest yes. For the no, maybe and confused, please tell the rest of the class what makes it more dangerous than running when stationary? Or do you just believe propane is out to get you? Actually the truth is my wife can see the temps for herself. Seems whenever we would stop, as soon as we get going again she would ask if I checked what the temps were, because she forgot to look Got tired of it.

RE: Hose question........

we expect to camp in parks with full connections. Any thought to a water pressure regulator? Good insurance, but definitely not guaranteed if you leave water spikot on all the time. Personally myself I dont and just fill tanks when I need to.

RE: Tire warranty

Dont know true or not. My local les Schaub told me they could not get maxxis after I ordered knowing, I had to leave on trip at a certain date. Time ran out and had to settle for their "best" trailer they were pushing. Emailed maxxis inquiring about being out of stock on west coast. Email back from maxxis said was a lie. Printed out email after trip, sent to Corp les schawb. Corp les schawb replied with basically sorry and hurry back for more tires. Les schawb not as good as once was.

RE: elec test help on Onan gen

Yes, most generator installs cable runs directly from battery or nearby terminal block to the generator No electronics between those points 12v battery up front, or 12v battery sitting on the ground beside RV It is still only 12v battery You can not harm anything if you connect the jumper cables correctly Hopefully today, time permitting I'll hook up direct to battery to genny to test.

RE: elec test help on Onan gen

Does the starter engage the flywheel and start cranking the engine and then mysteriously just disengage before the generator starts? Or does the started just click, you hear the gear fit the flywheel, and then it immediately retracts and shuts down? Can you put a meter on the starter battery terminals and then watch the display while you're cranking the starter over to see if it hits 6 volts? Either that or as MrWizard suggests put a battery on the ground right by the generator and run some jumper cables to the terminals on the generator. "start cranking the engine and then mysteriously just disengage before the generator starts"? describes it best.

RE: elec test help on Onan gen

I'm going to ask a really important question, have you read the manual? There was nothing wrong with my Onan engine, oil level, battery charge, damaged wires... I finally deciphered the little set of flashes on the display. Mine wouldn't start because the generator was not outputting. So you may find the answer in the manual. If it's not there, what have you lost, nothing but a few minutes. Yep have read owners manual and service manual. Service manual not that helpful as I wish. Covers about a dozen things, then for "faults" says to see authorized deal.

RE: Chicago Trip Advice

https://www.cruiseamerica.com/rv-adventures/rv-destinations/top-rv-destinations-around-chicago Link is right off CA web site. Tourist type stuff... https://www.tripsavvy.com/tourist-attractions-in-chicago-1492259 And in some big cities nothing wrong with renting a rental car for the day. Sometimes parts of old cities have low bridges or parking hassles and stuff, that RV's just don't do well. And some rental car companies deliver right to your RV.

RE: elec test help on Onan gen

(Sorry was typing same time Chris was posting)… But, don’t really understand starter engage disengage. Does it run and not crank the genset? That’s usually a broken part in the starter, but some models are more prone than others. To me sounds like a weak bindex gear on a starter. Only thing that comes close in the trouble shooting guide is what they describe as "starter engages-disengages" (cranking voltage dips below 6 volts-low battery charge, poor connections, long cables) OK seems OK to run jumper cable from starter to genny. (Typing same time above posts were) I'm trying to trouble shoot the battery cable from genny to battery. But don't know if there is any electronics are installed in this cable, and I don't have access to seeing entire cable. Looks like when the genny was installed, installers lay'd out the cable then used a couple "P" clamps to hold cable in place (in back of genny) and then jacked up genny and bolted into place. So jacked up into place, I can't see entire cable. And don't know if I should blindly bypass this cable. Do most battery cables, (positive side) run directly from battery to starter on genny?
