    OH NO!!

    It doesn't work that way. Unless the dog is intentionally releasing the brakes. It takes a significant amount of pressure, held for enough duration to charge thee air lines with enough pressure to maintain the button in. I'm still calling BS.

    Verizon Unlimited Data Plan for Jetpacks

    Could have even been dumb luck. I don't remember the sequence, whether it was running before I pulled the battery, or it was powered up on the cord. The next time we take it outside, I'll experiment with it.

    Nope, plug and play.

    Electric Baseboard in our 5th wheel

    Sure. Just keep in mind the power requirements, and the service size in your RV. 30 amp rigs will struggle to run on all electric heat.

    Brand new unit, brand new battery. Also, not using the battery, running off USB power supply. The battery will only be installed when we want to take the JetPack roving with us.

    We only have one renewal under our belt, but our 7730 did the same thing on the last renewal. Mind you, we paid it in store, in cash, rather than auto-pay.

    OH NO!!

    Two choices. Tell your insurance agent of your failings as a pilot, or blame the dog.

    Bumping this back up, as summer travel plans get finalized. May 20th is the official holiday, so the Rally/gathering will commence after that. Any interest in tours/sightseeing should be added here, to allow a head-count to gauge interest.

    Generator size

    Why is your existing 7.5 kW only doing 30 amp?

    It sounds like the Neutral and Ground wires are tied to the same point in the trailer panel. This is what's causing the GFCI to trip. Make sure the Neutral is connected to an insulated terminal, with only other neutrals connected to it.

    Question about RV Pic

    That's the water heater. The rust/residue could be from poor winterizing practice, a dripping T&P valve, or from old age. I'd factor the cost of a new heater into the negotiations, and buy with the expectation it will fail sooner, rather than later. Most of the rust/residue appears superficial, but it's hard to tell from the pic.

    Magnum ME-2012 still struggling

    To put this one to bed, after the owners returned from a cruise vacation, I killed all the power into the unit, pulled all the boards out and checked for more bad solder joints. This unit must have seen lots of use, in hot temps. Lots of suspicious solder joints, which were hit with a soldering iron to get good connections again. The boards should probably be replaced, as this isn't really a permanent solution, but rather, a method of troubleshooting. The charge side has been working flawlessly for the last week, in cool weather of Arizona. Owner to decide whether to send whole unit back for refurb ($850), or order the rest of the boards new.($2-250 per board, x 3)

    ABS Fault code

    Sensors will generate an AC voltage when they "see" the tone ring moving past their surface. If they're removed from the mount, run a piece of steel past the tip, while a meter is clipped to the leads. I typically use a screwdriver. A cordless drill can also work, placing the tip over the motor, not the chuck.

    What have you checked in the last year? You've been given lots of good tips above, time to get greasy.

    Just a heads up, the bolts also have a max. ampacity.
