I check them occasionally and individually with a load test. I like it because I always have plenty of power and no combiner/isolater to worry about burning out. And they all charge at the same rate.

That's a great relay you bought. I have one on my air conditioning system to open and close the compressor to keep the condensor from freezing up because I run R12. Much colder.

Bought 7' of new 1/4" pressure sensor hose and ferrules for the Turbo 2000 Air Dryer.
Pop-off valve was going off every minute or two. Only building 80-90 lbs of pressure - used to stay at 110-120 lbs. Diesel mechanic (neighbor) suggested the fix. Pop-off valve removed and cleaned.
Installing today or tomorrow. Will see if it fixes the issue.

Installed a new auto transfer switch and a new fresh water pump.

I am still cursing the switch manufacturer. The original had the terminals for each wire set directly across from the set: house-house; gen-gen; line-line. The new one had the terminals all over the place, and it required some stripping and splicing and cussing to get every wire to reach its destination.

The water pump is no more than a direct replacement with one additional wrinkle. I used a kneeling pad designed for gardeners (I think) that I found in my wife's stuff. This gives me one additional layer of absorption and makes the pump very quiet. I did the same on my old coach which had the pump located under the bed. It worked there, so I did it again.

Last thing I bought were oil and filters which I did the service on last weekend and ordered some tire covers to protect my new covers while not in use. They just showed up today so I can install them tonight after giving the tires/wheels a good washing/cleaning.

Mike.

9 quarts of mobil 1 5w-20 and a motor craft filter for the v10. Already have a napa filter for the onan. Will be a breeze to change with the Fumoto valve I already installed. Fresh for her winter sleep.
