  1. Thanks for the replies. It is a 2018 Ram 3500 AISIN transmission and under warranty but this is the second transmission to go in. Original trans leaked at 3K so they put new trans in but way overfilled it and blew oil all over so I was leery of the new trans and sure enough at 19K she blew up. Open to all replies. Thanks
  2. Finally had a major breakdown and had to have the truck towed 40 miles in one direction and the trailer towed 30 miles in the other direction to get into a campground that was available. Of course it is Sunday so not many places open or answering phones. I will be needing someone to tow my 35' fifth wheel down to Florida a total of about 450 miles from the South Carolina campground. The truck will be needing a new transmission so no sense staying here to wait for it. Any leads on tow companies? thanks
  3. Always use a solid cap for bottles stored inside and cap it tight. Check e-bay about $9.00 for 5 caps 5Pc BRASS Cylinder Cap 1LB Propane Bottle Cap
  4. Where is it located? And as mentioned above, Model # and how long has it been sitting?
  5. When plugged into any AC source (either shore power or a generator) your 12 volt is usually supplied by the battery charger/converter. The charger/converter converts 120 volts AC to 12 volts DC and charges your battery. When not plugged in to any AC source your 12 volt DC is supplied by the battery only. With 1 Honda EU2200i you have 2200 watts max output, 1800 W continuous. These outputs are rated at sea level and decrease approx 3.5% per 1000 ft. You do not mention the size of your air cond, it is either a 13,000 BTU or an 11,000. It is most likely a 13,000 unless you have a small trailer. I
  6. Look at Onan/Cummins P2500i. Much less expensive than the Honda. I saw them at Quartzite and would have bought them if I had not already bought Honda's
  7. X-12 torque multiplier wrench $450.00 This is the Cadillac of torque multiplying lug nut wrenches. Don’t risk busting your butt or breaking a limb with makeshift rigs to loosen or tighten your RV lug nuts. The feature that makes this better than the cheap units is that you can torque the lug nut to 450 ftlbs accurately with a 45# setting on a torque wrench. The cheap units are great for removing but you risk stud breakage due to the high gear ratio.These are very high quality tools. No Chinese junk here. Excellent condition. It has saved me several times. Very hard to find nowadays. exce

  10. Dallas, Thank you for your reply. Hopefully aurora54 will add some info on their reason for needing factory support in their remote location.
  11. I am interested in one of these hitches so can you elaborate on the support you required "from remote locations." Sounds like you had multiple issues. A quick search of the BBB came up with many complaints on these hitches. https://www.bbb.org/us/tx/gainesville/profile/trailer-hitches/automated-safety-hitch-0875-90622349/complaints
  12. The Coleman Mach series is very well documented. I did not hot wire the compressor or fan because upon further investigation I was able to figure it out. A couple of diodes on the control box boards were dead. I don't think we got an actual strike but rather just some kind of "back to the future" event" where some electrical energy got to the sensitive semiconductors on the roof. Replaced those diodes with some I had in my "electronics" stash and all is well. Funny how both A/Cs had almost the same bad diodes. Total time invested (other than internet research) 2 hours. Less time than it takes
