  1. If you remove the filter panel on the ceiling, you will see a metal box. If you are lucky, you will be able to remove a screw that holds the cover on and then can see the circuit board inside. We had the Zone 2 box fail years ago due to corrosion on the board and the phone wire connection. I ended up buying a new box and replaced it. That was seven years ago and have had no issues since.
  2. The most practical thing, being off the road and the rain comes, would be just cab up, and when the rain stops, get the chairs out and wait till it dries up. Why risk tearing up the rig and who knows what else just to move the RV. I've had experience getting large trucks and equipment pulled out of mud and other places, once with the biggest caterpillar I've ever seen, and the trench that was created by the truck being dragged out was huge. Another time, the cable broke and drug a load of rocks toward the truck we were pulling out. Blew out the radiator, windshield, alternator along with b
  3. We've had a Netgear 815S hotspot for AT&T and have had an unlimited plan for quite a few years now, and we have great service and can stream movies with no interruptions. We will probably upgrade the hotspot in the near future, and I'm sure there are other hotspot options including providers that work just as well. Considered and then decided against installing a more permanent device as technologies are quickly evolving making many of these things nothing more than boat anchors.
  4. I got logged on to the site at 9:00 am Tuesday here in AZ, and was finally able to snag an appointment for Feb 4 at the Cardinals Stadium. DW will be going with me, and even though she is just too young for the 65-75 group, she will probably be able to get her shot too. By evening on the news, they were already reporting that the earliest appointment times were the 19th and later in February, so we got real lucky.
  5. Run whatever size cable to a box where you will plug your rig into. At that box, terminate the cable into lugs that have two terminations so you can run the small cable from the termination to the breaker in your panel. Your larger cable will handle the voltage so you don't have the high voltage loss, and for the very short distance to the panel lugs, there will not be any voltage drop. I am a retired lineman, and worked with UG cable for over 35 years and aluminum is all we used, and you just need a compound to wire brush the bare aluminum with prior to inserting into the lugs to cut the o
  6. If you go with something like this, you will be good. Rarely will you see full 50 amps for each leg so your voltage drop will not be that much. You can get by with 2" conduit, but maybe a little larger would make pulling in the cable easier along with some cable lube. I would recommend terminating the cable in a splice box at each end above ground so you won't have to worry about water getting to the splices or connector lugs. https://ewcswire.com/1-0-1-0-1-0-2-awg-aluminum-ud-quadraplex-600-volts-code-notre-dame/
  7. Maybe go to this link and enter all the info. https://forestriverpartsdirect.com/
  8. We have a heavy duty Watts regulator that keeps the pressure below 50psi, so for us it's not an issue. Also, with those kind of pressures, I wouldn't trust a cheap regulator. I connect with the regulator everywhere we hook up, regardless of what the normal pressure is in a park.
  9. The last park that we stayed at that had high pressure, they told you to not connect to their system without a good pressure regulator was Park Sierra south of Coarsegold, CA and the lower you are in the park, the higher the pressure because their water system water tanks are on a hill above the park. The pressure can exceed 100 psi. If you are somewhere that has high water pressure and you don't have a reliable regulator, I would recommend filling your fresh water tank and use your water pump while at the park.
  10. We were evacuated from the North Fork, CA area due to the Creek Fire on the 5th, moved the fifth wheel to the FIL's property near Coarsegold. Haven't seen the sun in a week due to the smoke, except as an orange ball. Heading out Friday, going east, and hopefully get far enough to get out of the smoke. I would not recommend anyone to come to California or even Oregon or Washington until these fires are out. The smoke is very bad, and getting worse.
  11. If you are planning to start boondocking, you might as well plan on at least two batteries and maybe even four. You might also consider 6 volt golf cart type batteries.
  12. In addition to the video, go to this link https://www.arprv.com/dometic-ez-install.php and select the model fridge you have for detailed installation. When I installed our ARP device, a fuse was recommended, which I used, and for the slight cost, I can't understand why one wouldn't install the protection. There is the boiler temperature sensor that is wired, plus another thing connected to the tubing which is a ring connector that is just clamped to the tubing. I also have the ARP device that controls additional fans because our fridge is in a slide and needs additional air flow. If you
  13. Have you checked that the 12 volt grounding is good? Possibly you have a loose ground and that is why the batteries are not able to receive a charge.
  14. Why not just replace the backing plate assemblies with self adjusting assemblies? Then you will have new shoes and magnets and they will adjust themselves and you won't have to worry about adjusting while on long trips.
  15. You might be better off using a liquid or powder type treatment rather than one of the packs that look like a detergent pod. Unless there is sufficient agitation, the pack or pod may not break down to mix with any liquids in the tank. There are some of those enzyme treatments that say they work for long extended times compared to those treatments that are not much more than perfume, so for long storage times, maybe those enzymes would be a better choice.
