RE: Atwood Hot Water Drain Plug

Drain plug is nylon, the others are probably brass. Neither will corrode but nylon is much less expensive than brass.

RE: Use onboard charger or external charger?

Tell us what converter brand and model and the portable charger brand and model. No one can possibly answer the question accurately without this info.

RE: Polarity Checkers

...15 amp (female) to 30 amp (male) adapter for around $5, and install it on my (house hold) polarity checker. My question is, can I use this to check for proper 30 amp wiring, (open ground etc.) at the campground pedestal? Thanks! Sure, add a Kill-a-watt to the mix to check voltage and you're good.

RE: Is it Just Me?? (Campground Websites... Or Lack Thereof)

...But without a decent website, how will people find you in the first place? and actually show up.... Probably the same way we did before Al Gore invented the internet. Phone book, maps, tour guides, word of mouth, signs.

RE: 1975 Aljo trailer...

...we will most likely be within 150 miles the first time out so i might do without.... Most accidents happen within ten miles of home so your theory is flawed.

RE: b atterie life

usually plugged in 24/7 when parked at house,if not plugged in slides don't want to work,lights don't come on any thing 12 volt won't work unless plugged into shore power or plugged into tow vehicle. batteries taken out every winter & stored in basement of house after charging. Sounds like there is no connection between batteries and RV. It does seem that the converter is working fine. What is voltage at batteries when RV is unplugged? What is voltage at batteries when RV is plugged in? Some possibilities; Disconnect switch off/open. Reverse polarity fuses burnt/open. Fuse or breaker at batteries burnt/open. Corroded or loose connections at batteries, ground, or converter.

RE: b atterie life

I always count on seven years or more. Most batteries die of abuse and neglect, not old age. Describe in detail the problems you are having. There are lots of smart people on here but details are needed.

RE: I built a clear black tank and tested the Sewer Solution

Voted, but I thought the "Testing the conventional wisdom" was a really vague choice. I don't know how to test conventional wisdom. Do we all need to take an IQ test?

RE: Sales Pitch and Legitimate Give-A-Way, But There's a Catch!

...All we had to do is set up an appointment and either sit through a 90 minute presentation about the one campground or take a tour of the other campground.... I think you learned a lesson, but if you do want the free gift here is what you can do. Go to the sales office, they will sign you up and assign a sales person. Keep in mind that the sales person gets paid commission, if you don't buy, they don't get paid. As soon as you hook up with the sales person tell them this; "I am here for the free gift, I have no money and my credit rating is in the toilet. I will not be buying anything. You have a choice, you can waste two hours of your time on me, or you can give me the gift and move on to someone that may make a purchase". Odds are they will give you the gift and move on to better prospects. Do not be concerned about hurting their feelings. They are NOT YOUR FRIEND. They have one goal and that is to fleece you. You are actually doing them a favor by not wasting their time.

RE: Fresh water AND grey water combined?

...the grey and black tanks are not made for potable water. ...The waste tanks are NOT made from material that is to be used for water that is consumed (potable).... My Weekend Warrior has four tanks. Two tanks are fresh water, one for gray, and one for black. All four tanks are the identical black material.

RE: C-Pap

Where are the 12 volt plug ins in the 5th.... Wherever you put one. Most RVs have a single 12v receptacle at the television. I added more inside and outside. You could always buy one of those jump start battery packs that are sold just about anywhere. The jump starter would be much less expensive than the battery pack the Cpap manufacturer will sell you. https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/shopping?q=tbn:ANd9GcRhg7dQJ-jfwkSI4j0BvQowo13BgTdYVAevuhj7ZOELLwwi8kRswTBelk6gpbIKqRGlxd-WXmRN&usqp=CAY width=480

RE: Need buying tip

I would laugh in their face and tell them to pound sand. On the other hand I can do all my own repairs, how about you?

RE: Title and Registration

If your home is in Indiana, you probably have no option to register elsewhere. Also Indiana would probably be much less expensive than California.

RE: RV 3157 Stop & Tail Bulb -- LED Plug and Play?

...would these LED replacements work correctly as a plug and play for tail and stop/turn signal functions.... Probably not. The LED does not have enough load to make many flashers work correctly. Will probably be only a dim glow in the center of lens rather than light up the entire lens. The is no upside to those cheap replacements for vehicle lights and several possible downsides. Let us know how they work.

RE: walmart

Has anybody been kicked out of Walmart while overnighting... No, I have overnighted on city streets, Walmarts, truck stops, shopping malls, other retail stores, rest areas, and restaurants. I have never been asked to leave any overnight location. Heck, back in my motorcycle touring days I tossed out a bag and slept on the ground in many places. Sometimes under a store overhang, a picnic table, sometimes on a picnic table. Never been asked to leave. Have even slept in homes under construction, scooted quick when workers started arriving to avoid confrontation.

Nobody answered the "black and cooling" question yet. Does black shrouds effect cooling?? Don't know ? I'm sure any adverse effect would be very minimal. The fan pushes air through the condenser, it doesn't just sit there.

RE: C-Pap

I installed the extra batteries because an 8 hour cpap operation is a large battery usage esp with the humidifier. The two house batteries can be a source but you will wind up running the generator more while boondocking. If I can get three nights on the scooter batteries I will be happy. pops You still have to recharge batteries one way or the other. I prefer to use the house batteries because they are available for all uses. Your separate system is only available for the C-pap. You increase complexity by having two separate battery systems.
