  1. It definitely looks like a Progressive panel, similar to the ones shown in this link, but the schematics are not showing that switch. Maybe some more digging around that site might yield something.. Jay https://www.progressivedyn.com/service_discontinued/discontinued_prod_basic_operation.html
  2. Your pix are too low resolution to see what that switch's function is. There's a way to attach higher res images via a link, if you're interested. Yes, you can put a jumper across the terminals to charge both, but you really don't want to leave it that way. Doing so will drain both banks at the same time and could leave you without battery capacity to start your vehicle. Plus, the banks are typically different types - deep cycle for house bank and starting type for the chassis bank.You really need a battery isolator of some sort, like an auto charge relay. That will allow you to use the banks

  4. This is a classic example of different strokes for different folks. When I was younger, poorer and more ambitious, I would definitely have been in the group of those who wanted to "roll your own". I enjoyed the projects and the process and did all kinds of projects. I no longer am that interested or ambitious, so I opted for the complete, high quality and well thought out Jackalopee. I have relays laying around doing nothing, so I could've used them with no investment. I'm still happy I chose the finished product. To each his own. Jay
  5. I'm not a fan of mosquitos OR excess heat, but the worst mosquitos I've ever encountered were on a trip to Lynn Lake, Manitoba in 1994. The Texan with us joked about skinning them and grilling them. They were huge in size and quantity. We were truly glad to be away from there, but it was a memorable trip. Jay
  6. Or just stay away from AZ. My son and his new wife moved there maybe 15 years ago and I was introduced to the blistering August heat. It was 118° when we moved them in. We finally convinced them to move to FL. Yeah, it gets hot and muggy, but never the kind of heat AZ has. Jay
  7. According to the Resource, it's doable? Here's the link. Jay http://hhrvresource.com/node/45.html
  8. Everyone has a different perspective on this, I'm sure. When we're gone from our FL home, we leave the A/C on, but set it at a higher temp. The most important point of that is to dehumidify the home to limit the formation of mold and mildew. Plus, there are many things at home which we feel would deteriorate under excess heat and humidity. This way, everything stays as we left it. Jay
  9. If you take your link, strip off the [IMG] front and back, you can then use the Other Media button to insert the link you have remaining. Jay
  10. I'm sure I saw detour signs, but unfortunately I didn't pay attention to them. I just went through on I70. Easy peasy. Jay
  11. I just went through there two days ago, from I70 westbound to I29 northbound. I didn't think it was any worse than usual. I sailed right through. I'm not sure I'm the best reference, though. I've been through every major city many times and have the lanes generally memorized. I just pay attention to Lola (navigation) and I'm generally never in a rush. Jay
  12. I'll be delivering an ambulance in Bismarck this week. Jay
  13. Panther is an expedited freight company. You'll see pictures of a couple different rigs at their site. I saw a straight truck and a tractor, both with huge sleepers. I assume that was the point of the clicky. When they reach the eight foot or so length, they're fully loaded condos, with full baths and kitchens. You're only limited by your wallet and your imagination. Jay
