RE: Favorite place to camp to avoid the heat in middle USA

I'm thinking thee referring to "Fun Valley RV Park" But don't go there if your single, that won't let you in. And why not ? :o

RE: Fighting zoning ordinances that hurt RV owners

I really don't see me ever owning property governed by a HOA. I do understand why lots of folks like the strict rules of a HOA. Simply read the rules before buying and if you don't read them you have messed up . Don't cry about the rules YOU agreed to when you purchased. Nothing wrong with attempting to get the rules amended before you try to " break " them. Most of The other owners of property read the rules and purchased probably because one of the rules was of the NO rv parking in driveway. For example I have a close relative that owns a multi million $ condo on the Florida beach. He had his lawyer read the rules and explain the do's & donuts before hand.

RE: Fighting zoning ordinances that hurt RV owners

There is a new GIECO commercial spoofing HOA's . From seeing problems thru the years it's spot on which makes it hilarious to me. :B

RE: Mach III plus 13.5 ac fan running backwards?

I called my electrician brother and he was stumped As well. He asked me if all power had been disconnected while installing and after installing the capacitors (I replaced both). I disconnected all power including the battery and waited for an hour. I fired it back up and now it’s running correctly. Fluke? Maybe but, it was the suggestion from my brother that save me from buying more unnecessary parts. Thanks for the help here. TD Disconnecting 12 volt and 120 power had NOTHING to do with fixing your problem. ALL a capacitor does is BOOST the start up needed power. Did you ever check the separation gasket like I asked? Doug I pointed out how swapping run & start reverses these motors. Only way I see this could happen ( reversing on its own ) is somebody WAS working on the wireing or as you say a baffling problem which I honestly don't know about as I only worked on couple of rv units & only the electrical/refrigerant side on top. I am not saying OP worked on it but during my long HVAC working days saw a lot of really messed up units that had simple repairs until repairs attempted by an unknowledgeble person that few confessed to. Maybe the OP's rv is haunted :B this would make an episode of that ghost hunter reality show

RE: Fighting zoning ordinances that hurt RV owners

What is the municipality? I would like to see the ordinance that says a vehicle registered, insured and inspected by state regulations, cannot be legally kept inn your driveway. Or is this an HOA situation? Jim Thorpe Pa in 1980's had an ordinance prohibiting Pickup trucks from parking at a residence. My Daughter & late SiL had to move there for a year for his job and you being from Tx he drove a truck. Lots of bull puckey from a few neighbors.

Refrigerator Interior fan ?

I have been looking for a cooling compartment fan for my Norcold . It seems to allways have some condensate along the top of the fresh food compartment & I had to replace the light fixture the other day because of this. All I have found are the battery powered ones but I want to hardwire. Am I going to just have to get a 12v fan & southern engineer it in ?

RE: Is anyone towing with a Chevy/GMC 1/2 ton 3.0L Diesel?

My Son just bought a GMC 1/2t crew Denali with the diesel. It's pretty nice . He is in the buying stage for a 24-26 ft TT so has not towed but the unloaded Hwy mpg is in mid twenties

RE: Mach III plus 13.5 ac fan running backwards?

If it was mine...I would switch the wires around and it will run the other way. I wouldn't tell somebody else to do that though..... For Alternating Current motors there is no such thing as backwards wiring. There is no positive or negative, both wires are both positive AND negative (not the correct technical description) that alternate 60 cycles per second (dont wet pants if this is not technical enough...). Switch wires and the motor runs the same direction. On a Direct Current motor, like your vent fan, you can switch directions by switching wires, because DC does not alternate. So, your A/C motor which runs off AC cannot be run backwards. You can get a backwards fan blade, but these likely do not even exist. The motor runs only forward. The reason to wire it correctly is so the casing of the motor is not "hot" and cause electrical hazards if touched by a person also touching a ground, where the electricity could flow through your body... Swap the Run with the Start lead on the Run Cap & it is now running reversed.

RE: Anyone installed Duotherm 3102903.006 hard start?

The factory kit should work better than a general fits all kit. Since you need to get on roof anyway get the actual compressor model # & go to local hvac supply & they can look up exact relay & cap for that compressor . If you are unsure of makeing the wiring harness then get the factory kit. I'm retired AC guy so this is just experience. I have never needed to add a start kit to my RV's and with a fixed orifice metering device shouldn't need one in most cases.

RE: Arkansas State Parks to open...

sayoung, I have never stayed at that park. We have driven by lots of times, even drove around in the park a couple of times. We used to stay in Eureka Springs and drive over to War Eagle for the Craft and Art fall meet. Nothing like that area in the fall!!! Enjoy your visit, the weather is starting to warm up.... We usually get over to War Eagle Mill & have lunch. Usually the pintos & cornbread , saves gassing up on the way back :o As to getting hot, it's already done that here . Made 89 today moving into mid 90's next week. Sad to say War Eagle Mill has not reopened the restaurant yet. We were on 29 from 6-4 till wed 6-10 & had a good time. I was surprised at how there was several empty sites and the tent campers are allowed back now.

RE: Arkansas State Parks to open...

Withrow Springs SP near Huntsville ,Ar is letting this ole Texas boy camp on #29 starting Thursday. This is our annual stay here at this park since it's just a few miles from our family place. It's a small park but well kept & as long as you don't stay on the west side spots its pretty quiet

RE: fifth wheel backing trouble

There was a device that mounted on rear of frame with 2 wheels perpidicular to frame that had motor for swinging trailer in/out of tight spaces. It's been several years since I saw the video but I think it was posted here on the forum.

RE: Should I carry a spare tire?

Another think to consider is whether or not you'll have cellular service when you need a tire changed. It's an easier decision with a Class C and much lighter tires. Yep. Had a wheel crack on the inside of the rim last year up in the Kiamichi mtns. of Ok & NO cell service. Glad I had a spare for the 5er . I wouldn't have an rv without a spare unless it was one of those with wheels I couldn't change & at 71 those wheel sizes I can change are getting smaller everyday.

RE: Rig for two couples?

No company makes an RV big enough for 2 couples. Exactly my thoughts . I don't think I could do it for a weekend but that's just me. I am sure there are couples that could make this work but I don't think there are a bunch.

RE: Rear View Camera vs Backup Camera

As has been said, don't connect it to the backup lights. Install a switch to turn it on when needed. Some back up cameras also can be set up for use all the time. I mounted a toggle switch next to my front landing gear control to power my wireless camera for the gps.
