RE: Truck batteries

My 2014 ctd batteries lasted right up until that day last September that my wife needed to pick me up at the airport. I seldom fly but this was the time that it had to happen. I rented a car at the airport, bought two batteries at O'Reilly and headed home. So 5 years with mild temps, never in extreme heat or cold for long.

RE: Anyone install an 30 amp receptacle outside for inverter?

No. I installed a transfer switch. Touch the remote button inside and power is there. No hassle, no fuss. Me too, I guess I didn't know what I was doing back then. :)

RE: Wheel Bearing Repacking question

You are very wise in your test approach.

RE: Anyone install an 30 amp receptacle outside for inverter?

Not following you completely. The inverter turns 12 volts into 120 v AC. You can install a transfer switch that would let the inverter send power to certain plugs in the RV. When you plug into shore power the transfer switch let's shore power go to those plugs. If you install an inverter to your battery and then use your oem shore power cord your CONverter will be sending power to the batteries as the inverter is pulling off of the batteries.

RE: Wheel Bearing Repacking question

He may take your money, but I doubt he repacks that often. Probably after several thousand miles. I agree with this. He's probably getting $55 over and over again and no one knows if or when he really services the bearings. That's his issue as long as $55 covers your tail all is good. I pull about 7k a year and service the bearings yearly. The fridge can quit or the toilet can plug up and it's easy to carry on but the wheel bearings put you on the side of the road. Wheel bearings are the single most important thing on a towable. You can blow tires and find replacements all over. Not so easy when the axle shaft is smoked and the drum and tire are passing you.

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

I believe that disposing of the old batteries can be a huge environmental headache. I can also see the value of this RV decreasing quickly with time and that it may be difficult to unload once it gets close to battery replacement time. The cost for the new batteries and for disposal of the old batteries MAY exceed the total value of the coach. I don’t understand the environmental headache statement. Maybe if it was a lead acid battery but a lithium ion battery is mostly aluminum. Not considered to be hazardous. Lead acid battery is highly recycled. Recycle

RE: Interesting article: Tesla Semi Electric Motorhome.

If we want to cut emissions, save resources and "save the planet" what the heck would any of us be doing in an RV. Why in the world would they build an ev that can go 150 mph and do zero to sixty in four seconds. Stop and think about it.

RE: Suggestions for RV panel install, long run

If you don't need a permit wire as you like. If you are supposed to get a permit wire it as required in case you get popped. At least that's how I cheat. I cheat but I don't leave myself open to double the cost. Risk reward I suppose Very Bad advice, save a couple $$ burn something down! Two things I don't cheat on Electric and Gas, all done to code! #4 copper wire in conduit. Use four wires. Very Good advice! To the OP, you state you are coming directly off the power pole, is this before or after the meter?? If before the meter you will also require a meter base (This would also be best as you would get a separate bill). If post meter, and you are truly hooking up to her 200 amp panel, you should be sure that she can share that much amperage, and how are you planning to share the bill? Learn to read, I told him to wire by code as I do even if not getting a permit. If he doesn't want to wire it to code as many do then that's for him to expierence

RE: Costco battery?

A group 27. Marine/RV Group 27 Sam's clubs do not exist here. As I stated before C-O-S-T-C-O ITS AN EXAMPLE OF A GROUP 27 BATTERY RV MARINE. MY GOD this is not all that difficult. Probably the most used size unless your RV or dealer was cheap cheap cheap then you got a 24.

Gives a whole new meaning to "piss on it".

RE: Watts Help Needed.

You also have to carry the load of the RV itself which can be an amp or so. My 2000 watt xantrax idles at .5 amp. I also don't think inverting to the coffee maker on one battery is good.

RE: Original Lino floor split

I used peel and stick tile because we wanted a stone look vs wood planks. I removed the carpet and linoleum. I then used a latex primer on the OSB floor to seal the wood. Tile doesn't like to stick to a porous wood surface vs something with a sealed more gloss like surface. I had a few places with little triangle cuts etc that didn't stick well but used a little goop to glue them down. My slide did scratch a couple tiles but all I have to do is peel them up and replace with some spares I kept on hand
