Push harder on the gas pedal and let the engine scream, really.

RE: Anyone Make a 2-Tank Regulator that is Not Auto-Changeover?

You just buy a two stage regular and connect a T-valve to the output. I think that's what Dutchman said also. I did this long ago with my travel trailer for some reason that I no longer remember. Later on I bought an auto changeover one and it was still working fine when I sold the trailer 10 years later. No reason to believe that the T-valve won't fail and leak also but it is simpler than the auto ones are.

RE: Wheel Bearing Repacking question

I had a travel trailer for 20 years and repacked the bearings once or twice. I towed it around 5,000 miles per year.

RE: Window AC in the Fridge compartment

You'll need to do something to keep the inlet and exhaust air for the condenser from mixing.

RE: WEN 3800 Watt Inverter Generator

Probably a lot better to buy a Champion if you want to buy an inexpensive genny.

RE: Mounting back up camera

3M automotive trim tape? It's a double sided tape that is used to hold various emblems and trim on cars.

RE: Trojan T-105 Storage

Hmmmm, maybe I should just run some volts into my solar charge controller and let it do the maintaining. It has temp compensation. My solar panels are all in the shade when in storage but I could use a power supply to feed the charge controller as long as the controller doesn't try to fully recharge the batteries every day.

RE: Trojan T-105 Storage

You live in a perfect environment for battery storage. The best way to store it is to switch it off circuit so there is zero chance of a fault draining the battery. Absolutely 0% chance of accident. A battery maintainer that compensates for temperature is another must. This will reduce stratification to near zero. A maintainer with a potential of >1.0 amps would be my choice. The maintainer stays connected 24/7, Mex, Do have a particular one in mind?

Trojan T-105 Storage

What is the best scheme for my T-105 batteries when I'm not using my motor home for 3-4 months? Will battery longevity be better if they are floated continuously at 13.5 volts for the pair, or should I disconnect them and periodically give them a boost charge?

RE: Need to find an anwser or help please

If it's 2WD, you could tow it if you could get a driveline disconnect for it.

RE: The Best Quality 200-Amp Solenoid I Have Yet Seen

I have a failed Trombetta. I don't think it lasted any longer than the cheapo one that Winnebago installed originally.

RE: What gauge wire do I use

The NEC requires that you use 10 AWG with a 30 amp breaker. This is a safety requirement so that the wire doesn't burn up before the breaker trips. The NEC also makes recommendations on how much voltage drop one might allow and it's never more than 5%. If you are unable to know what the load really is, I guess you just have to assume that it's going to be 30 amps and go with 6 AWG wire. If you determine what the load actually is, then you can determine if 8 AWG is big enough. Either way, the wire is probably going to cost more than you would like.

RE: Signal strength for phone meter

Signal strength is very useful when trying to aim a directional antenna; unfortunately, Apple took that info away from us with iOS 11.

RE: Wireless Fridge Thermometer - Are they accurate?

The thermal mass of a sensor versus a glass bulb thermometer is going to be very different. Because of this, one will more quickly respond to change than the other. Hopefully in a steady state condition they will be within maybe 5 degrees of each other.

RE: WiFi extender - Alfa Camp Pro 2 OR ANOTHER

It's generally best to provide your own wifi via cellular.

RE: Favorite multi-meter for RV / Solar

Fluke multi-meter is my favorite but there's no such thing as a clamp on Ohmmeter. You probably mean clamp on ammeter.

RE: I asked for trouble and I got it.

I'd be leery about putting so much money into a rust bucket, different story if it was from a salt free state.
