Pro Question: if I move the flux capacitor from my trucks 12volt system to the RVs 120volt system, will I need to connect the centrifuge through the converter and the nuclear rods through the inverter or will I blow a fuse? I'm 99% done with the install. Also, once the truck and trailer reach 60mph, will the field generator encompass both the truck and trailer or just the trailer.....and how will that impact weight distribution once the trailer passes through the event horizon? Important info many ask but nobody seams to know the answer.

Or you could just fire some torpedoes from the rear to bump your speed just up to 88 if a clock tower is not available. You can always come back in a phone booth later to reclaim the torpedoes before any damage is done.

So we haven’t fixed the harmonic distortion between the flux capacitor and the nuclear rods. The transverse effects lay waste to the semiconductor electrodrivetrane. Half of the rig shows up in one point in time whereas the other half seems to be a shadow. I’ve called in help from others but no luck yet

Hey Todd, Regarding running both pump and city water, in the case where pump pressure is greater than city pressure, isn't there also a risk of pushing water backwards into the city system if your backflow preventer is missing or malfunctioning, thereby risking contamination of the city water system. This would be a pretty big deal and in my mind would be one of the biggest reasons to not run both systems at the same time.

Love your tech tips. We have no problems yet, but our first trip in our new 2022 Entegra Ethos 20A is next week. Thanks to you I will be taking a complete tool kit with me, and a spare mounted on a Roadmaster spare tire carrier. I think we are ready.

Could you guys do a video on pressure tanks vs accumulater tanks and when you need them? Or using drills/impact guns to raise/lower stabilizers, is it a good idea? How much weight is to much for stabilizers?

I have a tri-axle MORryde suspension trailer with 10k hubs. I recently packed the bearings with a high timken load grease. Would it be advisable to add a bit of 90 weight oil to improve lubrication while traveling? Standing still I understand this is not desirable. But what about traveling? Thank you

We've had ours for over 4 seasons and use Irish Spring soap in just about every space. Lol. Not a rodent yet. Ants this year bc I forgot to spray anything touching the ground and around it. One dose of the spray and they were gone.

Last year we had a mouse problem. I bought a couple dozen bars of Irish Spring soap and put them everywhere, inside and in the basement. The mice ATE them! Every bar had teeth marks in it! I tossed all the bars I could find (still finding them in random spots and yes, they all have bites out of them) and went back to traps...

I have a issue with my diningroom slide-out , it is very heavy( dining room table ,residential refrigerator food pantry and fold out 6x13 deck. It has never extended out and made the floor flat. Like it is missing something. I've adjusted the cable system often. Placed lippert rollers under the outside edge. The dealer has messed with it 4 times and each time unable to fix it. Would you be interested in a challenge? We are heading to Florida panhandle from Virginia on the 21st

Rats HATE PEPPERMINT, I use a peppermint oil/water mix and use a spray bottle to spray it all over the underside of my trailer and truck also in the engine compartment. Smells sweet but the rats run from it, tried and trued. Good day campers.

What about tire maintenance for a rig that sits for 6 to 7 months on site. I travel for work and got tired of hotels. So now I will pull into a park for 6 to 9 months at a time and wondering how to keep the tires in good condition while sitting for long periods. My tires are under the slides on both sides.

Being shaded is going to help. Try these tips 1) Thoroughly clean tires with soap and water after setting up 2) Cover tires to block direct sunlight and ultraviolet rays. 3) Try to stay out of a high ozone area. 4) If you know you're going to be there for half a year, consider removing the tires and storing them in a cool dry place. Separate them with cardboard.

I have a 12v fridge that is mounted in the back passenger side corner of the RV, right by the door to the coach. I really like the fridge for the most part. Last summer we were in Spokane, WS and the temperature outside hit 107F. The fridge could not keep up during the heat of the day while traveling. There is no vent to the corner where the fridge is mounted, & since the fridge is trying to dissipate heat into the enclosure, would it be advisable to mount a vent in the enclosure?

I have outside cats that I feed 2 times a day and they still kill the rats and mice for me, I know people who do not feed the cats and they do not stay around to control the pests, it is in their nature to kill them so from experience feed them and they will take care of the problem for you. When I had no cats around had rats and mice and destroyed a very nice pop up camper did everything the soap, steal wool and rat bait. The cats have worked for me the best.

Can I install my 6000watt inverter off the 12volt cables that are on the convertor which are in the back of camper under the refrigerator? Or do I have to place it in the front near the batteries and run a 120 cord clear to the back to run refrigerator while driving to the camp site???

I'm no professional but, I always understood that the inverter needed to be as close to the batteries as possible. Then run a 120 cord to the back for your fridge. There's so much power going through the cables between the battery and the inverter it needs to be a short distance. That's what I was told at least.

I have a Battle Born battery in my RV and the OEM WFCO 55AMP Power Converter with 13.6V output. Does it hurt to charge the battery with OEM Converter since it never fully charges the battery to14.2v-14.6v?

10 месяцев назад

National RV Training Academy

This is not good for lithium batteries. The BMS balances the cells once the voltage hits 14.4 from the battery. A standard converter charger does not achieve 14 volts in absorption or float. This means the battery will never be fully charged and will wear out as the cells tend to get out of balance without the help of balancing the cells.

No the pump is an on demand pump. This means it charges the lines to 45-55 psi and will turn off. Once you open a faucet then the pressure drops which then kicks on the pump. It will cycle off when you stop using water.

Why don't manufacturers do a better quality control of their products?

11 месяцев назад
National RV Training Academy
National RV Training Academy

They do try but with all products, they are trying to meet the demand and most of the components are the least expensive to be able to compete in the market. Some manufacturers do build better quality above the rest but you’ll pay much more. In the RV industry you do get what you pay for.
