RE: WDH while staying hooked up overnight

Leave it all connected, no harm will be done.

RE: Help/Advice on those water filters

As all cg water must be tested and chlorinated why are you worried. The filters DO NOT remove germs and most contaminants. By the way some bottled water is worse than city water as far a contaminants. IT IS A MYTH THAT BOTTLED WATER IS BETTER AND CONTAINS NO CONTAMINANTS. All bottled water has to do is meet the same standard as tap water The last line is incorrect. Municipal water systems have more stringent testing and requirements than bottled water.

RE: Finally Found A 48-SMD 12-Volt Panel

The description says 240lm not 270lm. I got 500+lm from Command Electronics a few years ago for a lot more money. I see Command doesn't sell them anymore, they weren't competitive with the cut rate China direct sellers. I'm pretty sure a 921 is around 240lm - 250lm.

RE: Fridge hose on outside?

There should be a plug in the end. This keeps air out but let's water drain. That's a good trick, letting water through but not air. Yeah, I'd like to see how that works.

RE: Want to replace my power center

My WFCO 8725P stays connected 24/7 when in storage. It is charging and maintaining a pair of gel batteries that sell for $275 each. No problems after several years. You can replace just the charging portion with some other brand converter and simply disable the one in the WFCO power center. It won't solve your issue though. It sounds as if you are overloading one of the branch circuits. There is no way your converter could utilize a 15 amp fuse in the charging circuit since it puts out 35 amps. That is why it has 40 amp fuses in the charging circuit.

RE: Want to replace my power center

Still waiting for a reply from Randy. E-mailed him on Tuesday. But now, things are a little more urgent. The 12v side of the inverter is popping fuses like crazy. When I have it plugged in, it will charge to a little more than half, and then blow the fuse that shuts down the 12v side. It's not the 40a polarity fuse, but the 15a fuse in the #6 slot on our WFCO 8735. This power center is a single unit for converting, charging and fusing. I'm guessing that part of it's use is protecting the charging circuit. I'll take it in to the dealer for warranty service, but still would like to look at what will nurture my batteries the best. A branch circuit fuse burning is not the fault of the converter (not an inverter). The WFCO is a decent three stage converter which is perfectly fine for 90% or more of RV owners. It is only the drycamping/boondocking types that need a better converter.

RE: Burnt Circuit box

Cause and effect; Loose connection causes arcing, arcing causes heat, heat causes melted insulation and burnt wires. Word of warning, it probably caused damage to the neutral buss and should be replaced.

RE: Repair shop warning! Leo's Vacation World

Since you are a Good Sam member I would suggest you contact the action line or whatever Good Sam calls it and ask for financial compensation from Leo's.

RE: Use of time share agent toCamp site sell

If the resell company wants money upfront they are nothing but a scam. They will take your money and you will never hear another thing from them. Then you will be further in the hole than you are now. If the resell company takes a portion of the sale price as commission, they might be legitimate. You can always advertise on Craiglist or list it on eBay but expect to keep the price extremely low. The timeshare market has been dead for years and resell is nearly impossible.

RE: Fridge hose on outside?

Question is already answered but I would add that many people don't realize the hose should be installed with a dip in it to create a trap that holds water. The water filled trap is what stops air leaking.

RE: Are dashboard video cameras legal??

Generally, anything that is relevant to litigation is discoverable. If there is evidence that leads to a finding of the facts, the courts typically allow it be discovered and introduced. So if you have a running GoPro on your dash, and your phone beeps announcing the receipt of a text message (caught on audio), and you pick up the phone to read the message (time message read recorded on phone) and you rear-end someone (video of accident caught on camera) while reading the text, chances are quite good that the lawyer for the other side is going to subpoena that GoPro video and your cell phone records and match them up. The lawyer may also subpoena the black box of your vehicle. So, drive safe out there! None of that really makes any difference. Fact one - you rear ended another vehicle fact two - you are at fault, open and shut case Quoting myself to respond to those that think they need to correct me. I responded to a specific case where the driver was already at fault. The camera did not make them any more at fault than they would have been otherwise! Yes, a dash cam can prove innocence if the driver in the rear is innocent. I have a dash cam and have had it for a couple years.

RE: exilir xlr 45 converter

Be happy it has lasted this long, your converter is dying. Elixir converters are very poor quality, have a high failure rate, are only single stage, and are no longer made for good reason. The low voltage alarm sounding for no reason is a sign of impending failure of an Elixir.

RE: Are dashboard video cameras legal??

There are probably some state regulations regarding how they are mounted but it is perfectly legal to use a camera in public places. Like dockmasterdave replied, "anyone in public has no reasonable expectation to privacy".

RE: Pigeon Forge Area ideas to eat

We ate at the Wood Grill Buffet last fall. The food was so-so but I have never seen so many selections. It was HUGE!

RE: Water "Proofing" 30 amp Connections

I use a Tupperware box with a notch cut in each end for the cord to pass thru, I have also used an ammo box in the past too. Same here, I used either a Tupperware or Rubbermaid container.

RE: Battery charger upgrade and purpose of solinoid

Tell us the brand and model of converter you have now. A solenoid is a powered on-off switch. It can be normally open or normally closed although normally open is commonly used for RV applications. Whether or not your camper battery charges from the truck depends on how the truck is wired. You haven't even told us what you have.

RE: Why is Fridge Sweating?

Some refrigerators have a drain tube, some don't. Every time you open the door, you introduce warm moist air, the moisture condenses on the cold fins.

RE: 50 Hidden Gems Across America

The list is good as far as it goes. I have the Roadtrippers app on my phone which will tell about all the interesting places near you. Another good one is the Next Exit History app.

RE: need help identifying TT please

You might check with the "Tin Can Tourists" group. It is a club for owners of the old canned ham type trailers.
