    Xantrex Freedom 1055 HFS Pure Sine Wave Inverter

    Wow....it’s buyer beware! So that saves them around $200 retail or so per inverter?

    Xantrex Freedom 1055 HFS Pure Sine Wave Inverter

    Is that the stock 1000 watt unit? Do you know the condition of your batteries? Maybe a power spike during the night. Do you have a surge protector?

    Ishift not starting out smoothly

    May I ask why you chose to get the “brake” signal from that switch instead of using the brake signal from the Jackalopee?

    Ishift not starting out smoothly

    Are you referring to the little brake switch that contacts the brake pedal and disconnects the cruise? Does your cruise work? Did you have a chance to drive the truck after the installation of the DirecLink prior to this trip? Does your DirecLink work?

    Interesting Conversation About DEF

    Make sure you are checking the “use by date” when buying at selected outlets!
  7. Do the truck running lights also come on when you turn on the headlights?
  8. You said you checked the fuses... does that include the trailers’ fuses?

    Whispering Meadows RV in West Lake Louisana

    Glenn that review in the HDT Campgrounds was posted in 2011.... Saw this in the "rules". "NO fuel trucks, dump trucks, semis or other large trailers/equipment. 4-wheelers, ATVs and side by sides are not to be ridden in the park without approval. Loud motorcycles or vehicles may be required to be parked at the office".
  11. Why not just do a 48vdc inverter mini-split and run it directly off of you batteries and solar?
  12. Hope you never get a 30 amp site!

    freightliner transmission issue

    Year, engine, UltraShift....? Did you shut it down in gear? Disconnect the battery for at least 15 min to reset.
