RE: Samsung RF18 Fridge

OK thanks all. I will try what opnspaces posted from the Samsung website. I tried flipping the circuit breaker to the fridge, but that did not work. Don't know how the wiring works, but the invertor sent power to the fridge and it kept working. Its wired someway that the fridge works while driving down the road. The tow vehicle keeps the battery charged and the invertor keeps power to the fridge. I assume to make that stop, I need flip the circuit breaker to the Invertor and then pull the 15 or 20 amp fuse to the invertor. To complicated. I just want to shut off the fridge and still have power in the rig... Interesting about the inverter. Turning the breaker off should kill the refer weather the inverter is on or off. Maybe check that the refer breaker actually controls it. Wouldn't be the first time the factory monkey screwed something up. How about just unplugging it if the plug is accessible?

RE: Tiffin and Newmar Drop down bunks

As one poster said, The yoga mat they call a mattress. Can't say about Tiffin or Newmar but my 2016 Bounder has the drop down bunk and it is about a full size bed. Cheap 2" foam mattress. Oldest grandson wouldn't sleep on it. We put a 3" topper on it, now he tosses the other ones off. Have read some are using an air mattress.

Do a web search using "RV hot skin" and you will get lots of hits and hints. Noshockzone.org is a very good resource.

RE: Chinese Versus TAIWAN Hand Tools

Back then the store was commonly called "Monkey Wards" Sears, original Die Hard batteries on the west coast were made by GLOBE UNION In Oregon. They were IMHO excellent. Because my family is a thousand miles distant I have to do my own shopping and public exposure. Even with all my protective gear I figure I have as much as a 50-50 chance of making it through August. Too many negatives to believe I will survive contaigion. Been a good ride :) I got a circular saw from Monkey Wards, a rolling tool box and a lawn mower that wouldn't die, (I finally gave it a mercy killing) and lots other stuff. Only reason I bought tools from them is the carried work pants I liked and they were closer than Sears. I too am in a very high risk group, and when I go hope to see you on the otherside. You have a lot of information I would like to learn from you. I can't punch out yet. We took on our 14 year grandson in mid-December, good news is he is making good progress, thanks to the DW, but some days...he tries out patience.

RE: Which TPMS system to buy for truck and trailer?

Information on the TST web site is very skimpy. Can anyone with a repeater tell me if it is hardwired to the trailer system battery or has its own, or what? Only thing I can find is that it does not have a user serviceable battery. The info they have is very limited and cryptic, would help to have good info to help people make decisions. Charles That is what I thought too. I went with the EZZ. Even though they said I shouldn't need the booster for my 35' Bounder I had two sensors that kept dropping. Replaced the batteries and that didn't fix so I had to spring for the booster.

RE: Costco GC2 batteries changed?

Mexican batteries Made in Monterrey nuevo leon LTH company. Six pounds lighter than a T105 At first I was ready to say you have been in the sun too long. LOL I could swear that when I was doing research they were the same weight. Then I looked again today. :o

RE: Costco GC2 batteries changed?

I seem to recall that Trojan used to make Costco batteries and they were the equivalent to the T-105's. They are now made by Interstate. Mine are about 15 months old and so far holding up. I just couldn't justify the extra coin for the T-105's.

RE: battery wires

One older battery in a set will drag the others down. Spend the extra bucks and replace all four. In a general sense you can mix old and new IF you use same brand, same aH and the older batteries are in good condition. Put a battery watering system on them while you got them out. Flow-Rite is one, at Amazon or auto parts store. Simple to install and use. I water mine once per month. Not knowing how much dry camping you do go with the GC-2 from Costco/Interstate with 200 aH each, about $100 each. Lots of dry camping and the deeper pockets you might want to spring for the Trojan T-105's at 225 aH. Usually turn on generator in the AM for coffee and the microwave and leave it on for 2-3 hours. We do about 2-3 days at a time, residential fridge, temps down to mid to upper 30's and the batteries last overnight with furnace use at 60°, usual TV and LED lights.

RE: 6v battery wires

I'm betting yours is setup the same way my 2016 34T is, with a residential fridge. Looking at the schematics that I have from Fleetwood your batteries are in a series/parallel configuration. Where the hot cables leave the batteries there is three connections on that post. One is the jumper from the other set of batteries. One goes into a 200 amp fuse then to the BCC. The other goes into a 300 amp fuse then to the inverter. So all four batteries are drawing to both the BCC and the inverter. My fuses are located at the front of the batteries near the bottom. You might go to https://www.fleetwoodrv.com/for-owners/support/technical-assistance and fill in the info. Make sure the Fleetwood ID as well as the Ford VIN is filled out. In the comments section say that you would like schematics for electrical and plumbing and what ever else you want. It will take 24-48 hours then they will show up in your in box.

RE: Vandalism in Death Valley -- the culprit has confessed

Strip him and stake him out for 30 days. If he survives he can start picking up trash for a year.

RE: Cost to install apparatus for Flat-towing

His money, his choice. I do not understand why several are spouting off about how he wants to run his life. Maybe if you walked in his shoes a few miles you would have a different perspective.

RE: 2007 forester 26s

Couldn't find that model but... I had a '07 Sunseeker 2860, bought use from a local rental fleet. For the most part I felt that the build quality was fine. I really didn't have any complaints other than the Mastercraft (?) furniture was ****. Replace the sleeper/sofa, removed the dinette and replaced with a couple of small chairs. Re-Upholstered and built up front seats. Later after the grandkids came along I put one of the dinette benches back. Grandkids kept multiplying so we upgraded to a larger Class A.

Turn off the Fox Noise and you will feel better in 14 days I think you meant CNN. Nope. Besides I don't watch CNN or hardly any TV at all.

RE: hand sanitizer scarcity

I sure am missing the Sears Catalog. This wiping with bytes is not very effective.

RE: Which one of you told

Oh by the way.. One of the funner things I did back when I was a police dispatcher..... Some auto thieves swiped a Ford Mustang with On Guard. Of course we knew where the care was.. give or take 3 feet at all times. Freight company that I worked for had a truck stolen while the driver was grabbing lunch. As he was inside for awhile and the truck was out of his site he didn't know how long it had been gone. He called the police and reported it and then called dispatch and had them track the truck with the in-cab communication system. Yeah, the thief didn't get too far.
