    Inverter or generator?

    I set it as low as it would go. Forget what that was - maybe 60F. Like you, boondocking is not a priority for us either but having a large supply (600AH) of DC power when not grid-connected is nice. We have many travel days and with the dogs, we eat lunch during an extended (up to an hour)...

    Inverter or generator?

    Duane - yes, I have the Micro Air Easy Start on my main (15k) AC. In my system, all branch circuits on L1 are inverted. The only items on L2 are AC#2 (bedroom), Water Heater (AC heating) and 1/2 of CheapHeat. Heating and cooling the tiny trailer with a single slide is pretty easy while...

    Inverter or generator?

    @TrailCreek - I like your setup. I too have 600 AH of BB batteries and I too run my main (15k) AC from inverted battery power. I'm using a Victron 3k MultiPlus inverter. In full sun, with 1080 watts of solar pulling in about 800+ watts during this test, I ran the AC continuously for 4 hours...

    EVENT: Heartland Chapter Rally: IA, Amana - 9/30/2021 to 10/3/2021

    Wish we could make it this year but not in the cards. Amana is so much fun during Oktoberfest. Wishing you, Shel, the kids and all the rally attendees a great time!

    Backup Camera

    Not as cost effective as the Haloview would be the Furrion product. I've been very satisfied with my 4 camera setup. It's their Vision S product.

    Backup Camera

    My son has that brand on his longer Sundance travel trailer. He says it’s pretty good. It does glitch out (gets jittery) at times. For the cost - he’s happy.

    Yeah - I didn't know I could tweak the logo or the background image until I was told there was a motorhome stock image there. Oops :)

    I figured this out. What you're seeing is a stock image in the Tapatalk app. I went into our Tapatalk management dashboard and updated the image. Thank you for pointing this out!

    @Semi-Hex - way to MacGyver that system in the field. I've blown a few hoses as well but found them at home - on my concrete pad :)

    Wow - so sorry to her this. I have not heard of an issue like this that couldn't be resolved. I suggest you give a quick call to Precision Circuits to see if your dealer has been working with them directly on this matter. Precision Circuits Inc 2538 Wisconsin Ave Downers Grove, IL 60515...

    Closing one AC vent?

    Partially closing one AC vent will be fine. I doubt even fully closing it would negatively affect system operation. Go for it and make your son comfortable.

    What do you like about having an RV Lock on your entry door?

    Love that feature as well. Hold the lock button for a couple seconds - and it locks! That feature came to be a few years ago.

    What do you like about running a TPMS on your RV?

    I've used a number of Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems (TPMS) over the years. Pressure Pro, Valor, TireMinder and TST are the ones I recall using, dating back to 2005. Today, I'm running the TST 507 series TPMS on both my truck and RV and I love it! In order, what I like about running with a...

    Dual drains on 2021 Sundance?

    We have a Sundance 262RB. Because the bath is in the rear and the kitchen is north of the center, we too have 2 sewer discharge points. I use a Y fitting and extra hoses. On overnight stops, I do not install all of that though, I just dump the tanks at each end, one after the other by moving...

    RV Industry Sales and Order Backlog

    Just a quick post to mention that RV industry (boats too) sales continues to be at a record pace. From the new article below, I see that THOR's order backlog is $14B. That's 14 billion dollars in backlogged orders. That's huge. I'm used to this figure being in the few hundred million range...

    What do you like about having an RV Lock on your entry door?

    Hey George - thanks for buying the lock. As you know, it really helps the chapter. Looks like it was a real fun rally. We’re having a great time with Heartland pals in Colorado Springs this week (follow me on Facebook). Miss seeing you and Laura. One day :)
