Yesterday I tried to start the truck. It was about 45 degrees outside so I tried it. Not turning over fast enough. So I plugged it in to the block heater. And then then checked the batteries voltage, 11.9 volts. Not good. The truck sits plugged into the 5thwheel by an umbilical cord. I did not want to check to see if the umbilical cord power was good. I know it would not take long. But I did want to put new spark plugs in the generator on the truck. So with new plugs in the generator I started the generator and plugged in the on board converter. About 20 minutes later the truck started.
So this am I will check the batteries for voltage. Now it maybe 6or7 years since there were new batteries installed in this truck. So I am shopping for batteries. I also will see if the inline fuse for the umbilical cord is good.
But batteries would be a good thing to do, I do believe
I like it. The true cost ??? when you tie everything down for for Hurricanes, Winds and Earth quakes. I had a house built with ICF (insulated Concrete Forms). It was the ICF construction from the basement footer to the roof truss. I was quiet and efficient heating and cooling. I was not quiet for an earth quakes in Southern Illinois. Would I do it again, yes in part. Definitely the basement but maybe only half the walls for the main level. Wood is less forgiving than concrete if you want to make a change. With the price of oil going up, the ICF blocks may not be affordable and wood products should be more stable in price.
