RE: Built in vs. Stand-alone GPS?

My 2012 built in Magellan is no longer eligible for updates. It gets less useful every day. My Garmin RV770 sits in front of it nicely.

RE: Wilson Cell Booster?

See if I understand: I have an OEM omni antenna on my roof that my one and only WeBoost amplifier is connected to while in route. At destination the pole gets setup and the WeBoost directional antenna is turned for best target cell tower. The same coax but there might be an old Wilson adapter in there somewhere.

RE: Garmin GPS

Garmin RV770 Two years. 25000miles use, in RV and in toad. Highly recommend. Also have the Garmin 65W dash cam which is awesome. Garmin Express easy to use and makes updates a snap. The Stop light/speed camera subscription for around $26 dollars a year can be very entertaining if not useful when you drive like I do.

RE: Jump starting the generator

Could you have started the genny first and then the engine? Would that have been any easier? They both draw from the same chassis battery so jumping would be the same. Don't know why switches are involved in the jumping process.

RE: Operating on a 20amp circuit

Yes it is doable. Basically you just need to keep your converter/charger on to supply the batteries. The heater fan is your biggest load in your scenario.

RE: Onan Gen--hard starting and surging

You might find that filter below the carb has been discontinued. There is another on the fuel line just before the fuel pump on the lower backside.

RE: Why no continuous furnace fan option?

The air flow from the fan moves the sail switch that tells the furnace that it is ok to release propane and start the igniter. Not an expert but that is my simple understanding. Somehow I don't think having that safety feature open or not functioning is not advisable.

RE: Postal code

Just spend 3 months in Vermont this past summer and every pump I used had instructions posted on it on how to workaround US Zip requirement. Sorry TMI for me so I don't know what the poster said. Also surprised to find a couple stations/pumps that did not ask for ZIP...?

RE: Solar panel purpose on used motorhome

A solar panel small enough to fit on top of the A/C is probably a trickle charger for the engine (chassis) battery. Something that small may not have a controller and be directly attached to the battery. That is the first place to look.

RE: Microwaves on inverters.

That half of the equation seems reasonable/doable. The other side of the = is your battery bank supplying the inverter. You will need, and others may argue my math, 400amps and a way to return 200 of them to charge the batteries each day. What is the surge rating on the inverter? That is what it will take to get the microwave started, not its continuous run rating. Also you won't be able to run both at the same time so do the coffee first and the Jimmy Deans second. Good Luck

RE: Park Host Opportunity at Bentsen State Park
