  1. I should clarify regarding RV voltage (this is covered extensively elsewhere). There are NO 240 VAC circuits on your rig. Your home's dryer is designed to run on 240 VAC. The breaker you are installing for the RV is actually 2 120 VAC circuits and is wired such that they each can deliver 50A to each of the 2 120VAC circuits, a total of 100 Amps.
  2. Dryer plug is 240 VAC - RV is 120 VAC and is NOT compatible. You are better off installing a dedicated breaker and the correct outlet for your coach. If you are not competent and confident do not attempt this yourself. The attachment should guide you through the process. In my case I had to add a sub-panel to allow enough space to add the circuits. I am an electrician and don't recommend this to an amateur due to code and safety reasons. Wiring for 50 Amps.pdf
  3. It seems prices have doubled since you last bought the 15# tank. The RV version is now $871.95 Power Tank Packages I use the Amazon.com: Viair 40047 400P-RV Automatic Portable Compressor Kit: Automotive <$300
  4. The word ban is used entirely too often in today's society. It is a violation free speech when one person doesn't like to hear that of another and tries to silence them. Let's try to avoid this kind of tyranny.
  5. On both of our coaches we were told to turn all appliances OFF before connecting/disconnecting shore power. Wait until the transfer switch pops before turning back on. This is especially applicable to the AC's and microwave.
  6. Drain the fresh water tank and all holding tanks. Now might be a good time to pressure clean the holding tanks (black and grey water) to remove any Struvite deposits (yout.be/2mGY63kgjh8) Drain the water heater and leave the plug out, then close the cold water input side valve. Make sure the bypass valve is NOT routing water into the water heater. Having drained the plumbing as much as possible previously via low-point drains, now make sure that all valves are closed so you have a closed system. 20 lbs. will work just as good as 60 lbs. Connect the compressor to the th
  7. Take note: Suburban water heaters have a sacrificial anode because they have steel tanks. Use an OEM anode as some of the aftermarket versions DON'T WORK! Atwood water heaters have an aluminum tank and do not require an anode rod.
  8. If 50A is available, I would put a 1200W ceramic heater behind the driver set to 50 deg., with all the cabinets under sink and bath, as well as shower door open. Second - there are tanks below, right? Put a mini heater down there and set to low and adjust the temps to 45 deg. I put it it my wet bay. We've been doing this for 8 years with no issues down to 20 deg. Add a third heater in the bath if it goes below 20.
  9. Once you figure the operation out by testing JP5, you could get a SPDT momentary switch and hardwire it in permanently. Problem solved.
  10. good write-up is here: 30-Amp and 50-Amp RV Service: 7 Things You Need to Know | etrailer.com
  11. Does anyone recall folding and re-using "tin foil"? We had a drawer dedicated to that.
  12. We have the RVi2 because have 3 vehicles involved as toweds. The setup for each brake system on the AF1 costs money, and with the RVi, if we add a vehicle all that is needed is brackets and wiring-no need to pay the mechanic to install the braking hardware or for that matter buy the hardware. Either will work well.
  13. Are you sure that marine plywood is in current production. I suspect you will see OSB in many.
  14. We have our home trimmed in AZEK, and we have the 900 sq ft covered deck covered with their TimberTech. Recommend.
  15. Instead of a subterranean drain, you could pour the slab with a curb to direct water away from the walls into a trough in the center of the parking space. By a trough I mean just an area1-2 inches lower than the sides at the curb. Slant the trough from the far end toward the overhead door and out the building, or if you will have two doors maybe from the center. Be specific in your requirements with the concrete company so you get no low spots that will collect liquids. Require laser leveling to avoid low spots as was mentioned. Finally, if you think about it you probably want the sur
