RE: Best Fridge Type

As long as it is propane/120v, I will be happy. If it happens to be propane/12v/120v, that is fine. I will just never run it solely on 12v.

RE: Komfort 274TS Receptacle Issues

Thanks for getting back to us with the solution. It will help future people with similar problems who are searching old threads.

RE: 30 amp camper/50 amp plug and cord

Bobbo: Is your answer still "Yes"? Thanks again to all who replied. Now my answer is "(expletive deleted) YES"!

RE: 30 amp camper/50 amp plug and cord

The question remains, hypothetically speaking, if I was on the road could I plug into the 50 amp receptacle on the pedestal without damaging my trailer Yes.

RE: Charging batteries with a small generator

You should be able to camp for days on one battery with a gas refrig. My experience is that you can get one night per battery. When I camped with one battery, I had to recharge every day. When I upped that to two batteries, I only had to recharge every other day. (Solar greatly extended that however. Later, much later.)

RE: 12 volt fridge in TT

As long as the battery is sufficiently charged during that 2% of the time that your converter/charger is not working, no problem. If the battery is NOT sufficiently charged, or runs down, the fridge will stop cooling. However, as long as the fridge door stays closed, it will stay cold for hours, so, no problem. If it stops cooling, and stays off long enough for the fridge to get warm, you will have to throw out spoiled food. Even your old gas/electric fridge needed 12v power to run. It must have 12v to power its electronics even when running on gas. So, it was no different.

RE: Voltage protector 110V?

Opinion: At $14 it must be a great device. :S Sure :)... I like HW30, don't like the price. Buy quality and you only cry once.

RE: Voltage protector 110V?

In this area you definitely get what you pay for. I would spring for a EMS-HW30C or a EMS-HW50C depending on whether you have a 30 amp or 50 amp RV. It costs more, sure, but the extra protection is worth it.

RE: How screwed am I ? Boneheaded jacking mistake

Just watch out for a blinker fluid leak.

RE: Protection

It may or may not give as good protection, but, when the wind makes it flap it can abrade the outside of your RV.

RE: Honda 2200i travel

I just throw mine in the back of my pickup truck. I do use a bungee cord to be sure it stays upright. Been doing this for 6 years now with no problems.

RE: Small Propane Cylinder

The only problem experienced is that occasionally the valve sticks. Nothing that a couple of whacks with a hammer can't fix. Nothing likes to be hit. That is not a small cylinder problem. It is a cylinder problem. The small cylinder uses exactly the same valve as the 20# and 30# bottles.

RE: How do you measure the ambient temperature?

Welp must’ve touched feelers with the mod. Thanks for deleting something that was well, opinion, just like all the rest of the opinions. If I want to know how warm it is where I am at, I go outside. If I want to know how cold it is, I use my phone. If I want to know how warm it is somewhere else, I use my phone. I wondered why my answer went from the first answer on page 2 to the last answer on page 1.

RE: Small Propane Cylinder

I have two of the 5 pound cylinders. Can get them filled anywhere.

RE: How do you measure the ambient temperature?

A thermometer in the shade.

RE: MGVWR and problems titling trailer

I am not sure what the "M" in your "GVWR" means Manufacturer I'd empty it and take it to another set of scales to verify dry sticker. What's your tow rig gross combined weight rating?The problem is not with the tow vehicle capacity. The problem is that the trailer weighs significantly more than the trailer's GVWR, so the state won't issue tags for the trailer.

RE: Connecting 2 batteries together

Here is pianotuna's image. He is demonstrating exactly what I described above.

RE: Connecting 2 batteries together

Hook the two POSITIVE terminals together. Hook the two NEGATIVE terminals together. For best results, hook the trailer's POSITIVE cable to the POSITIVE terminal of one of the batteries, and the trailer's NEGATIVE cable to the NEGATIVE terminal of the other battery.

RE: Distance between the two RV?

Just my opinion, but enough to walk between them with all the slides deployed.

RE: AC tripping generator

The thermostat SHOULD prevent short cycling. Short cycling is GUARANTEED to really spike the amperage draw.
