  1. Too many people wanting to use them is a growing problem for much of our public lands of all sorts.
  2. Thank goodness nobody asked what color! 😊

  4. I just checked and Rick has not visited this forum since Sept. 14 of 2020, unfortunately. He does have a YouTube channel so you may want to become a subscriber.
  5. Welcome to the forums! Good to have you join us. I assume that you probably already have the instruction manual that I found online. The fuse should be located inside the shroud cover, where the cord goes into the microwave. I am unable to find any sort of repair manuals for it.
  6. Are you still a member of Escapees? You should visit Escapade or some other event and meet some of us. We got a 20 year pin, but I haven't put it on anything. 😏
  7. Our son just took delivery on a new F350 and his is also fused for 30a but we aren't sure at this point what the wire size is as wire sizes will be the primary limiting factor in what voltage will reach your battery and that voltage determines the maximum charging current. Of course the wire size limit is partly on the truck and partly the trailer.
  8. Let me ask first if this discussion has answered or at least helped with your reasons for starting the thread? I'd rather not hijack your thread into another direction until we at least know if we have helped? After years of observing and participating in the RV community, I think that part of the problem has developed from the tremendous increase in electrical needs for modern RVs while the tow vehicle's electrical connections are still designed primarily towing cargo trailers and things of that type. There has been major improvement in towing packages for those since our first RV, but little if any improvement in the ability of the 12V supply from the tow vehicle to whatever is being towed. Wire size used to be a minor issue because demand was very low and even today with most larger cargo trailers having a battery for brake-away application of brakes it is still not much of an issue, but RVs have increased 12V power demands have been very significant. The gage of wire used in the automotive s has been insignificant, if at all.
  9. I have no experience with then but you can check them out using your favorite internet search engine. Maybe someone who does use one will read the thread and join in.

  10. Or to add just a bit, you have 6000 watts available on L1 and another 6000 watts available on L2 for a total of 12,000 watts. But there is a small catch in that the only way that you would ever see the entire 12,000 watts would be if there were exactly 50A being drawn from L1 and exactly 50A from L2, and then there would be 0A on the neutral as it only carries the difference between the currents of L1 & L2. In the real world, it would be very unusual for an RV to actually use the entire 100A/12 Kw but in a practical application you probably have about 80A/9.6 Kw useable because if either leg should exceed 50A it will cause both sides to open since they are linked together.
  11. IF YOU DON'T MIND IT WOULD MAKE YOUR POSTS MUCH EASIER TO READ IF YOU DO NOT USE ALL CAPITAL LETTERS. As for a fusible link in the wires to the 120V heater, I have never seen one in any of the Dometic refrigerators that I have worked on and the schematic from Dometic does not show one. The schematic does show a 30A fuse but it is in the 12V-dc line to supply the 12V heater and not on the 120V side. Have you measured the 120V supply to the refrigerator? Most of them connect to 120V with a plug into a standard outlet so you could use a lamp or electrical device to verify power. As you look on the schematic the L is for line voltage and N is for neutral. The S is the terminal block where 12V connects. There is a drawing on page 10 of the Dometic Service Manual that will show you what you are looking for. If this is a new refrigerator, I would be very careful to not do anything that might be considered a violation of the manufacturer's warranty by the dealer, as you may need to take it back to them.
  12. It will be interesting to observe and they may well surprise us all. Our nephew & his wife do quite a bit of travel with their teardrop trailer and have now for 5 years or so, but not fulltime. If they are experienced campers that will go a long way to help them make it a success. Do update us from time to time. Back when we first started fulltime we met a couple who were fulltime in a pop-up and were starting their third year. I also used to know a single male who lived fulltime in a home conversion of the Econoline van. Clearly it is possible by some an I enjoy seeing them succeed where most of us might not.
  13. Welcome to the Escapee forums! It would be helpful to know more about what you have? It has been more than 4 years since the last post prior to yours but I am assuming that you have a Dometic refrigerator that you are working with? There are some differences between models. To remove the cover on many of them you loosen the screw on the top and then use a screwdriver in the slots on the side to pop the tabs loose. Be careful not to break any wires or the cover. Let us know more about what you need and if this is of any help, You may want to start a new thread if this doesn't help since some members don't read the older threads.
