RE: Battery Replacement Assistance

What make and model refrigerator do you have? Many have a heat strip between the doors to prevent sweating. This is in the 12 VDC circuit and is a high draw item. On some it can be turned off.

RE: Florida Camping

In the past I have found that in Keys your best bet is to call campgrounds a week or so ahead and find one that has an availability and reserve. You will need to be flexible on your dates. On your way down overnight stops can usually be done on a wing it basis. Everglades National Park generally has first come first served dry camping availability.

RE: Water Pumps

They are diaphragm pumps and the reason they are used is twofold. They can be run dry without damage and are self priming.

RE: Battery Replacement Assistance

My recommendation is the 2 6V set up as it gives you the most flexability. However, if your TT is a newer one that has LED lighting and you do not need the furnace 3 nights is not a problem if you use a Group 31 deep cycle battery.

RE: What ever happened to RV Park Reviews?

Learned many many moons ago that "new and improved" is quite often not better. This is a good example.

RE: How do you summer travel?

I make as few reservations as possible. Usually only if I want to be at a specific destination on a set date or holiday is involved. While traveling I generally go about 300 miles and stop at a campground. Very seldom is there a problem of availability of one site for one night.

RE: digital thermostat

No they should last a couple of years. Batteries don't like to power things when very cold.

RE: Loud Water Pump

Ditto to Old Biscuit. That will cure 90 percent of pump noise issues.

RE: Texas road map

Best source for road maps of Texas or any other state is that states tourist commission web site. They will be happy to mail you maps and all kinds of travel information.

RE: Screws being pulled out on Awning

Sounds like the mounts are not aligned correctly or the awning material has shifted in the mounting rail. If trailer is new this should be a warranty issue.

RE: Storage compartment lock latch?

Entire latch is also available at hardware and home supply stores. Only thing is it will not be keyed with a CH751 key.

RE: New AC problem

My first suspect would be the thermostat.

RE: trailer size and campsites in National Parks

I have stayed at many National Parks and have found that as long as the TT is under 30' in length you will be able to get into most. Just about all are dry camping and a few have have some sites with limited hook ups.

RE: Suburban water heater intermittent fault

Check that all connections to the circuit board are tight and clean. Also check that the electrode is positioned correctly. Since it fires well initially it is likely the former.

RE: Suburban Over won't stay lit

Check that the pilot flame is good and that it engulfs the end of the thermocouple completely.

RE: Battery Wiring Question

One battery should for generator starting only and should be a starting duty battery. The house battery(s) should be deep cycle with the total AH rating depending upon how much time you want to spend on battery vs generator.

RE: Grand Canyon 2020

A good option for you would be to stay at Desert View, the NPS campground on the east end of the South Rim. Easy walk to the canyon wall and less crowded than Mather and Canyon Village. From there it is an easy run up to Zion, Bryce, etc.

RE: Newbie Electrical Issue - Advice Needed Please

OP says the battery is disconnected; so the electric element of the refrigerator is also on line unless the refer is off. Also the power converter is also on line. 20 amps will generally carry an A/C but nothing else.

RE: Replacing weather trim

The "glob" is sealant like the other seam sealant on the roof and used to seal the end. For the short term you can push the loose portion back into the channel.

RE: AC shroud

Go to a local HVAC supply house and get a fin comb.
