SInce my last update of June 2018 I replaced the Cyclone with a DRV, 7-8,000 pounds heavier and a higher pin weight (4,000+).
After 5 years the TS-3 is worn to the point that the clunking and banging got to be too much and the wear areas are all worn pretty good. My grease mods worked well with...
Look into whether it is a Ford goodwill thing that the 16's are covered or has the NHTSA issued or expanded the scope of the recall.
Here is the text from the 3.2L reductant heater recall.
OWNER REFUNDS • Ford Motor Company is offering a refund for owner-paid repairs covered by this program if...
The normal Onan 'green' generator installed by most manufacturers as well as Heartland is not a 120/240 generator.
The two windings are in phase and output is limited to 120 x 2.
You cannot get 240 out of the generator.
Did you come up with a plan for the Texas house?
At our new house in lower Delaware I opted for a main panel interlock and a 50/240 receptacle on the outside of the house.
I wanted to add one of those generator hookups that install at the the base of the meter. It took several weeks...
I am not going to suggest you do this, just what I would do.
Open the cap, take a sniff. Bad fuel has a distinct odor.
If I still had a gasoline gen I would add a can or 2 of Sea foam and then run the generator with a load until the tank ran dry.
I've gone as long as 3 seasons when we had a...
I had picked up some of the material used to make the seats during one of my factory visits. I used that to have a curtain made for the garage.
And I have no idea why this link displays a link different then my post from my original thread...
The winch was in the forward left corner, drum parallel to the frame rails.
Cable went straight out towards center of rig, pulley for directional change towards the rear than up to that pulley on the condor.
Promote? I didn’t think so.
But I am a user of Blue Sea products, and there are two things that stand out with their products, they are not the cheapest option and everything I have bought is top notch, high quality product. For electrical needs Blue Sea and Ancor are about the best you can buy...
Generator dry weight is 420
Tank was not weighed but I would guess 30 pounds or so
Roughly 25 gallons of diesel at 175 pounds
Ancillary parts, probably another 20 pounds
My tank was custom made, 6' long and is mounted under the basement as far forward as possible.
Since building mine there is...
Mark, I tried my old converter I had laying around (actually kept it handy as a car battery charger).
Works great, no problem lifting the 300 pound hitch out of the truck. Hardley slows down. I think the converter I have is at least a 50 amp as I had it for the Cyclone backup.
Does the dishwasher have an electronic lock to keep the door closed?
We have a fisher paykel drawer dishwasher, works great. But the instructions did not include how to lock the drawer for travel. From Indiana to our dealer the drawer opened and closed into the opposite side cabinet door handle.
H'mmm. This gets me thinking some more. There are days I have turned on the generator an hour out and ran the AC's. Not the best way to cool down the RV with all the slides in - discharges and returns mostly covered,
Last week we made a stop at the local Costco, 95 miles from home. We put...
In the scheme of things, the wire size would be the last place to skimp, I'm surprised the vendor would suggest 1/0 at all. That inverter has the potential to pull 400 amps and it charges at 125 amps.
What size AC are you running with it a 13K or 15K? DO you have a soft/ easy start on the AC...
I'm surprised I just found this thread.
But it does make sense if the terminals are different colors and labels such as battery on the copper post.
In your picture - if the B+ was on the silver side and you had a direct short that bar would break the connection and possibly deform and hit the...
