RE: 30amp surge protector on 50amp line

Just a note that the delay can be adjusted from 2.5~3 minutes to 10~15 seconds. The longer delay is good for protecting air conditioners from having a locked rotor start-up but if that delay is built into the air conditioner or its thermostat, you can set it to the shorter delay as I have done.

RE: 30amp surge protector on 50amp line

Hummmmmmmmmmmm! Please educate me if incorrect. My understanding of most inline surge protectors is that they protect YOUR electrical system (especially very sensitive electronic components) from externally generated surges (power company or line voltage) not internally generated surges. Your in house fuses and circuit breakers do that. Chum lee Fuses and circuit breakers won't protect against surges. They'll happily pass them along. OP: Get the 50A unit. As others have indicated, it will provide more, very important protection.

RE: ADCO Designer Series UV Hydro cover - any feedback?

Mine worked great for 13 winters until I the RV. Had some minor holes where sharp corners had rubbed through but it never tore and always stayed dry and fresh inside. The trailer looked like new when I traded it in. If I didn't store our present rig under a new carport, I'd get another ADCO.

RE: No power getting to my Angler 8C, 2001

You have a ground fault. Most common suspects are the fridge, water heater, converter or a wet outside outlet. Try unplugging the appliances (don't just flip breakers) in turn to see if one of them is the cause.

RE: Good Sam credit card opened in my name

Check your own credit to see if it's true. Most of those kinds of spam are just to get you to reply and answer a lot of questions to give up your personal info. Also, hover over the senders address to see if it really came from GS or has some suspicious extension. I get those all the time (from other sources) and just ignore them.

RE: Ford V10 starting and dyeing

Next time it stalls and wont start, bang on the bottom of the tank a few times while listening for the pump to start. If it does, the pump is shot.

RE: Tankless water heater

My buddy got one (Furion) with his new RV. Keep in mind that his WH is very close to all the sinks and shower - so he has the best scenario. His complaints are that it takes 20~30 seconds of water flow for it to actually start heating and that it takes too much water flow for it to turn on. So it's very inconvenient when washing dishes and they end up standing in the shower waiting for it to fire up. Both of these result in a lot of wasted water. He is seriously considering installing a traditional 10 gal WH.

RE: Back in the dark ages !

A shunt allows you to measure current flow. So you can tell how much coming out of or going in to your battery. If you don't plan on monitoring these things then you can do without it.

RE: Stuck in yard, ruts. Install driveway? Ideas please.

I splurged on concrete in 2018 and I have to tell you, it's the ultimate luxury!

RE: where to find replacement trailer furniture?

Has anyone ever talked to an upholsterer about reworking their furniture?

I use a shop vac with a 1/2" hose in its end to clean mine out.

RecPro is good for some things you can't find elsewhere.

There are no good RAM or FCA dealers in W. Wa. state where I live.

RE: Aqua Magic Style 2 - bowl leaks down

Clean the underside of the seal where it contacts the ball. One of my toilets came with a disposable nail file for this purpose.

RE: Adding Second A/C to 50 Amp TT

…. I will check the power on the RV, just and assumption but wouldn't the manufacturer spread the current out evenly on a camper that is prewired for 50amp service... I know what assume means. :) You would like to think that wouldn’t you? I think most are on separate hots but you would not be the first to report them both on the same hot. Interesting discussion. I still don't see why there is any need to balance. A 50A leg can easily handle 2 AC's even if something like a water heater is running. All three of those running at the same time would still be less than 5000 running watts - well below the 6000 avail. The RV's panel doesn't care - you could max out one leg and have nothing on the other leg without any heat, etc. How about those large class A's out there with 3 and even 4 AC's purring along in Las Vegas? Do they never run three or 4 at once? It sure sounds like they do when you walk past them.. If I'm missing something, I'd enjoy learning. EDIT: found this old thread that suggests running three at once (so 2 on one leg) is no problem: Linkaroonie

RE: Adding Second A/C to 50 Amp TT

All is good, you're just misinterpreting the requirements. To make a long story short, any 13.5K BTU AC will work fine (or probably a 15K for that matter) and your rig should be prewired for it. You'll need to verify whether you wan't or need a ducted AC model. I will have to respectfully disagree with my old friend Bud though. It is not imperative that the two AC's are on separate legs. With 50A (100A really) there's enough power to go around. Now if I was wiring it from the very beginning I would indeed "balance" the load but if yours is prewired, I would not worry about it. In fact, I think mine may be on the same leg but I don't remember.

RE: Alarming spalling failures on 7.3 Godzilla

I wouldn't be quick to blame any supplier. I worked for a huge aerospace co. that would tell suppliers how to make their products. When those suppliers would balk and tell us "that wont work", our arrogant, pubescent MBA's would tell them "Trust us, it will be fine". Guess what happened every single time.. And they never learned. This isn't new technology. The aftermarket has been making roller valve trains for decades. This is the big three happily putting us at risk of major repairs down the road to save themselves a buck now.
