Thinking out of the box here......how about going into Walmart and buying a couple of their outdoor extensions cords, and plugging into one of the outside AC outlets near the front of the store ?

That's a great idea, only thing is, some thugs would steal the cords for the copper during the night.

Agreed. :-)

Actually it usually cost more to stay at a Wal*Mart than a campground as we buy groceries and other goods, plus eat at a local restaurant. If we stayed in a campground we'd skip the eating out.

My charger will even go to 50 amps, so charging a good AGM battery for multiple nights with a Bi-Pap could be done a whole lots cheaper in just a few hours. The battery chargers on most motor homes are not too swift. Still running a Bi-Pap on gasoline all night is very ineffecient. Make sure your inverter will handle it. My Bi-Pap takes about 240 watts at peak. Any larger watt inverter should not be hooked up to the cig lighter style plugs. I also have a 1500 watt inverter with alligator clips that I can use for running the 100 psi air compressior for tires. I could run the invertor off of it as my batteries are under the entryway stairs.
I jusr find a currant bush and plug into it!!

Maybe RV.net makes money by selling their database. I wouldn't doubt it.
Just like these sites that have a privacy policy saying they won't sell or give your data away. B.S.
My guess is that they are all owned by one entity and may even actually be only one web site, with various sections for various interests. I've seen that before on some Chevy forums. Go to the Cruze Forum, and you'll find it looks the same as the Malibu Forum, even though they don't seem to be linked. Look closer, and you can find the links.

If you post on one forum owned by said entity, it may well show up on other forums in some sort of an odd cross-posting.

My Microlite 4000 is pretty quiet, but I wouldn't want to camp next to it if it wasn't mine.

That said, I have moved a couple of times in truck stops when the truck next to me was using an APU that was overly noisy. The idle free unit on my truck makes almost no sound at all, since it operates an air conditioner powered by stored battery power and a heater powered by the truck's diesel fuel. (The unit is called ClimaCab.)

When I Google'd the muffler part # I 190588 I got hits on those sites I posted, but actually going into the url, it was RV.net where I posted it, but also Motorhome and one other place I never posted about the muffler, so you are correct that they may all be linked somehow.

Since this has left WalMart and gone to ads, I posted an ad to sell a hitch here and it was useless as so many jumped in trying to fix me that the "ad" idea was lost and I got no responses. Please, let people post ads or drop that section.

I don't see where this thread has left Walmart and shifted to ads. What do you mean by "let people post ads or drop that section"? Ads are allowed in our classifieds section and sponsors can place ads in the Vendor forum but not in the open forums. Drop what section?

I've passed the local WalMart in town a few times this past week. There has been a 5th wheel parked in the lot, all three slides out, all week long. The owner unhitched the truck and was there a few times I went by, and not there other times. There are 6 campgrounds in the area so it isn't like the local CG was full.

I've stayed in a Walmart lot once or twice. Spending a week there is pushing it and those who do may end up ruining it for everyone else.

You should leave a note on his door expressing your concerns, and include a link to this thread and your email address so he can respond.

When it comes to running generator, My rig is a gasser, Onan Emerald Gold 5500, I use a Genturi.

Cold not tell if it was running or not by ear.. All I could near is a Semi about 50 yards away. He had a diesel generator running all night long, complely mask the sound of mine,, NOTE: it was not objectionable, Just loud enough to hide my generator's sound.

The new generators are very quiet. For me it is generator powering AC's or campground plug powering AC's. If AC is needed they are running. If it is hot enough for me to need AC my neighbour's would probably want theirs on.
