I treat every question as legit. Though I will admit there are questions we have answered so many times I have a subfolder in my "Documents" folder titled "Boilerplates" (Not just for stuff here)

But Where as I know that in THEORY you can use the search tools to find one of the many answers to the same question in the past.... I also know how much fun that is as I've tried to do that very thing... and failed.. and I'm good at search engines.

Correct. Telling someone to use the Search is very bad etiquette. It's also not great advice here since database issues from years ago have really hurt our search results.

A lot of people will just never understand that we don't have to respond to every single post. It's OK to just keep scrolling. Mumble your response to yourself or share it with your dog if you have to, but don't post if it's not going to be helpful.

You're talking to the wrong moderator. We aren't all the same. Bring it up with him.

Just for kicks though, I just looked through the logs and I've deleted twelve of your posts. They were all either political or blank.

The "blank" ones were the ones you changed to say "deleted".

The political ones were no-brainers. Political posts are against the forum rules. I delete them whether I agree with them or not (draw youw own conclusions from that).

And shame on he who questions whether his setup really requires a weight distribution hitch. Are you continuing to tow that new trailer while you save up for a new truck? Yep, you're overweight. Never fear though, as the rest of us will soon be safe because the authorities have been notified and your insurance will be cancelled any minute.

Guess what: I forgot to brush my teeth one time last month and maybe I'm not wearing underwear today. Come at me, bro.

Sure, these are exaggerations, but not by much. I think we got a little more rigid during the pandemic too. People got a little edgy and the stress of not being able to camp and now the added stress of higher fuel costs and scarce reservations has distracted some folks from remembering the Golden Rule. I think a lot of people are spending more time behind the keyboard and less time actually camping nowadays, and it's making otherwise nice people say crappy things.

It would be awesome if people could use their own backspace keys more often and snip out the ugly things they typed before they post. We're losing that self control though.

Love one another.

Treat others as you would want to be treated.

And by the way, I'm actually wearing underwear today. See? People lie on the internet all the time. (And now you really can't be sure whether I'm wearing underwear or not, because I lied.)

This post needs to be at the top of every thread!

Maybe except the underwear part. 8)

There's a lot of folks trying to teach a masters course in electrical engineering.

Point is you bought a safety device to let you know when there is an electrical problem. If you don't understand what the problem is, bypassing the safety device doesn't make a lot of sense.

And back to the subject if I may.
My air conditioner just quit & showed a E7 code, Which I found out is loss of power. Checked my EMS and all reads normal. No error codes or anything out of norm. Turned the air off. Turned off the breaker at the post & waited a few minutes. Turned the breaker back on and then the air. It ran all night. What caused the loss of power? No coach breaker was tripped. All worked fine after I did this?
Was I wrong again/
