RE: Nikola and GM team up to make 900 HP Electric Supertruck.

They simply want to move the pollution from power plants to other states. Those states should cut the wires to the idiots.When CA finally gets this worked out what will those other states do without the revenue?

RE: Reverse Polarity code When Plugging in at Home

You can verify or just fix it. Turn off power at the breaker, remove the connector, reverse the Hot and Neutral, replace connector, restore power. http://www.myrv.us/electric/img/30-ampRV-rec2.jpg width=200 http://www.myrv.us/electric/img/30-ampRV-front2.jpg width=200 http://www.myrv.us/electric/Pg/30amp_Service.htm

RE: Fuel mileage 5th wheel vs travel trailer

3 mpg seems a bit much to lose. From 12 down to 9 mpg is 25%. I think speed, wind, terrain might also be an issue. See how next trip goes.Who gets 12 mpg towing almost 10,000 with a gasoline fueled tow vehicle? "gets less gas mileage by about 3 mpg". Probably lucky to get 8 mpg which resulted in 5 for the travel trailer. Since we don't know the route or even the average speed, simply saying 40% less gas mileage is meaningless.We still don't know the numbers or how it was calculated. 12 is high? Sure. Say it was 9 and dropped by 3 to 6 mpg. That is a 33% drop. Seems high percentage for like conditions.

RE: Why Didn't I Think of This Before?

Why can't a hose fitting be attached to the pump? I just can't imagine cutting some port and getting a tube down to the tank.

RE: Nikola and GM team up to make 900 HP Electric Supertruck.

Reported now the Nikola 1 design copyright is invalid due to design was purchased. Again false information about internal development. Nikola Corp's founder purchased truck designs from third party - FT So much for getting rich off Tesla. And in Tesla style, to taunt Nikola, Tesla seems to be calling the new battery the Road Runner using the same name as the initial internal design name for the Nikola 1.

RE: Why Didn't I Think of This Before?

Why would you avoid putting the water from the jugs into the existing fill port? Get a second RV water pump and some clear tubing. A couple wires to the battery and you are filling the tank while you make a sandwich.

RE: Wiring , converter , not sure

Good chance you have a bad connection. Maybe in the transfer switch. Volt meter would tell more.

RE: Question on battery charging

The battery is shot That #10 s/b #6 or #4. Make sure you replace the entire loop including the ground connections at the battery and converter/ power center.

RE: Is there a decent brand of RV shower faucet?

I would buy something that controls the temperature and single handle on-off. Probably more than $50.

RE: Rubber roof repair-is this OK?

"Appears to be in good condition" says enough for me. Go camping and have some fun. Check it again next year. Otherwise you need to post some pictures. http://photoposting.is-great.net/?i=1

RE: Oil change question

Yes if you tend to use the Class A to go a 1/4 mile to the grocery then by all means change it. If you rolled in from a 200+ mile day and parked it then it is fine for the winter.

RE: Marshall changeover regulator doesn’t indicate empty tank

If you fill at the same place I would find a new supplier. No I don't think any regulator is immune from being fouled with bad propane. I also recommend new Cavagna pigtails.

RE: Marshall changeover regulator doesn’t indicate empty tank

Yes it is fixable. Replace it with a Cavagna brand regulator. Better accuracy, easier to read.

RE: Near tragic event!!

You will get many opinions here, but I think the studs sheared from over tightening or, more probable, defective studs. You might want to replace all of the studs, and for sure, replace the other tire from that side. The remaining tire took the whole load from that side and may be compromised. I'm glad you avoided other damage. JK+1 on this. Yes I have always used a torque wrench set to 105 and the oem studs would seem to stretch as the nut was tightened. It was like the steel was soft and as they were tightened it took more turn than expected before I would get a click. Fast forward 10 years and I put disk brakes on my trailer. The lugs tighten much different and seem stronger where they snug right up and the wrench clicks firmly. Previously it would be an extra 1/4 turn where it should have been tight but had a soft finish. I feel lucky to have never lost a wheel with the original AL-KO hardware.

RE: Propane regulator making noise

I believe you will be much happier with the operation of the Cavagna. At least it is quiet, right? ;)

I wouldn’t change it for another year at least.

RE: sway bar instructions

I assume this is a trailer friction anti-sway attachment. Yes by all means don't have it so tight in the rain, especially at low speeds.

RE: Tesla Semi truck unveil & test ride set for Oct 26th !

Quarter mile at 1G is a 16 second et. Top dragster is closer to 4G.

RE: House batteries

When we got here the meter was showing 12.5 Volts. This morning it is at 12.2. Is this normal? I didn't really want to run the generator just because of the noise but am I at the the downside limit?Yes this is reasonably normal. 12.2 is not really the downside limit but not too early to do some recharging either. Your battery charge is maybe 50% depleted and you should do some charging today. Many run the generator near dinner to also use the microwave etc while they prepare food. Need a couple hours minimum so start the generator at least two hours before any quiet hours limit. I assume your solar panel is less than 80 watts and will provide a maintenance charge in storage. Not going to charge much while in use. Certainly you can start thinking about expanding the solar charging to be 200 to 400+ watts. Yes the generator makes noise. To get the most out of the run time you need to verify your converter is charging at 14.2+ volts. Many just trickle charge at 13.6 volts. This makes a huge difference to cut generator time from 10+ hours to be 2 to 4 hours. Check voltage after running 20 minutes. Also post the converter model number for best options.
