    • Ok, yes it runs after I jump the solenoid and what I do is give 12volt power to the S side of the solenoid and it starts to turn over and when I take my jumper off it fires and runs.. it sounds good and it produces 120 volt power to my RV. Then I try the switch again to shut it off and it won't do a thing. How I shut it off is pull the fuse on the gen-set  and it dies.. I cannot get the switch to do anything. I have changed out the relays that are there and I've swapped out the switch with another gen-set just like mine... I've traced the wiring and it appears to be all right... so im stuck with what to do next.
    • I agree. I don’t think they do as the places probably have non members stay there. If everyone is willing to buy something then they are more then happy for you to stay. 
    • You must stay at some REALLY nice campgrounds that charge $79 a night.
    • We have a residential fridge also and it is powered by the batteries with an inverter while going down the road. Our truck has a 12 volt feed wire but doesn't recharge the batteries very well probably do to the wire size and distance from truck alternator to trailer batteries. We do have 400 watts of solar that keeps the batteries charged up while driving as long as the sun is out.  We did a few tests at home with a battery state of charge (SOC) meter to see how long we could last. We have AGM batteries that you should not go below 50% SOC. With (2) 100 amp hour batteries, I could not last thru a night  without going below 50%. We increased our batteries to (4) 100 amp hour batteries and now can last through the night without being plugged in. Now our next issue was the next day, our 400 watts of solar, while enough to maintain what the fridge was using, would not recharge the batteries back up to 100% by the end of sunlight so I needed to plug in and run our generator to make thru another night without power.  Try doing tests at home to see how long yours will last, just watch what type of batteries you have to make sure you do not discharge them too far to hurt their lifespan. Lithium batteries can go farther than the lead acid batteries 50% like deep cycle and AGM. 
    • Glad I'm not the only one who doesn't understand the question.  You pay a membership fee, and get access to a few thousand hosts - typically wineries, breweries, distilleries (notice a trend...lol), farms, orchards, museums, other attractions, and if you pay extra, golf courses.  It's a place to spend a night and not be in a WalMart, Cracker Barrel, or a truck stop.  Generally a more appealing location.  We have used it for three years, and have not had a bad experience yet.  The closest to bad that we have come is driving down 12 miles of gravel road in Kansas to a little farm - the hospitality was still good, but I'd pass on the gravel road in the future.  To be honest, we knew ahead of time that the gravel road was there.  On the flip side, we have stayed at several vineyards, parked on the grass next to the grape vines.  Or on a farm, in a field, with no neighbors in sight.  Generally, the hosts are friendly and accommodating.
