RE: cold TV's?

...the dealer told him it was because he left the TV in the RV while winter storing it.... BS!

RE: Bill in Congress to increase Senior park pass to $80

Bummer, DW has hers but I'm not eligible for another five months. For anyone wishing to pay additional, there is absolutely nothing preventing you from purchasing additional senior passes for spares. Buying a spare is a good idea but not for your reason. Put the spare in a safe place for use if your original is lost. The fed will not replace lost passes. If you want to help the parks, most of them have a donation box in or near the office.

RE: ? TV Rodent Repellant LEDs?

I want to commend you on being so thoughtful to provide lighting so the mice can see clearly while they destroy your vehicle. :B

RE: 12v outlet not working off battery (Aliner)

I've recently noticed my 12v "cigarette plug" outlet only works when running off shore power. All other 12v appliances work fine off of the battery, and as my camper is fairly new to me I can't recall if it's ever worked off battery. I seem to remember a post/blog about someome rewiring their 12v outlet to run off the battery rather than 120v/alternator because it came that way from the factory, but I haven't been able to find the article. Haven't checked if it runs off alternator yet, but it looks like the wires are spliced into the running lights/tail lights. Doesn't make sense. The 12vdc system is all tied together. If any one thing works from battery they should all work from battery. I think you have misinterpreted something you witnessed.

RE: Good Sam Perks

I don't understand the issue. The site clearly states that you must be a life member, purchase a new membership, or renew your existing membership. It is an incentive that is intended to get new members or get existing members to renew. If you want to be eligible for the perks, renew your membership.

RE: Interior fuse keeps blowing

That wire may or may not need connected to something. Just leave it be, use the RV, and when you find something that doesn't work, go back to suspecting the blue wire. There very well may be extra wires that are for options that you don't have installed.

RE: Gas lines

3/8" refrigeration grade copper is standard with 45 degree single or double flare. For a valve, look for an AGA certification, it will be listed for gas. The existing unit should already have a flared end on the supply line, so I would buy the valve with 3/8 flare connections, then add a new length of copper to the new water heater. What he said. I would add to make sure you realize compression fittings are not allowed, only threaded pipe or flared copper.

RE: Broken floor plate for tubes holding table

Don't travel with the table in them or you will break more of them.

RE: Lithium Ion RV Batteries

"Best" depends on how they are used by the individual. What is best for you may not be best for another, thus your question is impossible to answer. I'd be using them the same way you do. You have no idea how I use my batteries. Do you boondock? Do you power AC appliances from the batteries with an inverter? Do you have a residential refrigerator? By far the majority of all RV owners never camp without electrical hookups. In that situation, just about any cheap battery is sufficient.

RE: Hands on Experience with Lithium batteries

The Roadtrek Ecotrek class B comes with lithium batteries. You may find some information there.

RE: Electric Fireplace

Actual measurements would be helpful, I imagine.

RE: New Owner class c motorhome

Your offer sounds interesting, but not for me. Good luck to you.

RE: Interior fuse keeps blowing

Brand and model number of the converter/power center the fuses are in? Are the fuses labeled at all? It is unfortunate that you are having these issues, we can walk you thru trouble shooting steps. You must provide thorough descriptions of problems, brand and model numbers of the relevant appliances, and stick to one issue in each thread.

RE: Why a GFI HERE ?

The GFCI is fully functional without a ground.

RE: Interior fuse keeps blowing

I'm curious, if you are not using the RV, how do you know the fuse is melting? What is on the circuit? It should be easy enough to check what does not work after the fuse is melted or removed. It would also be very handy when trying to offer advice if we knew what RV you have. :h

RE: Full-time RVing again!

Welcome back George, I'm glad that your health has improved and allows you to travel again. I was a regular reader of your blog when you traveled Mexico.

RE: 2-way fridge question

Generally only pop ups, truck campers, and a few small travel trailers have three way refrigerators. They are very small refrigerators. Your two way will operate fine on LPG while traveling.

RE: Thousand Trails Membership

http://www.campgroundmembershipoutlet.com/ Unfortunately you will find there is a very small resale market. The place linked here is probably the most highly respected broker. DO NOT LIST WITH ANYONE WHO WANTS PAYMENT IN ADVANCE. It will be a scam and you will be out even more $$.
