The emergency trip to Tampa cost me every dime I had and about $400 I didn't have. The brakes are fixed and two tires replaced--while being towed to the shop a can of blue trim paint fell over inside a cabinet and poured out ruining the inside of the cabinet paint and a section of floor. Using it as a moving van caused numerous spots of damage to the walls. I still have no idea if the refrigerator or stove works and still have no hoses for water or sewer and have NO idea when I will ever afford them. I am envisioning at least a year of dry camping FULL TIME and three weeks of it were enough for me. If any of you are in the plant business and buy from Green Wholesale Plants in Eustis FL that's the rat bastard that sold me his crap rv as good..

Well it's GOT to look up at SOME point...I forgot to mention that it won't start unless I spray starting fluid into it, the battery drains if I leave it connected, the battery box for the house battery has rusted away .... But gee the radio works LOL
I do have a question though--everything I have read says you need to be parked perfectly level to operate the refrigerator...so this being the case, assuming one has a house battery, how does one safely operate the fridge while moving??

Mapping fridge and battery questions

Gosh I need a "Rv for Dummies" book. I've read so many warnings on leveling the rv or ruining the fridge that I'm afraid to try the fridge at all. Mine has a level on the front of it. If that level says the fridge is level am I good to turn it on or do I still have to go through all the front and rear level doo-dah?

Now, my unit has been missing its house battery since I got it. I've been thinking about putting my car battery in there just to see what if anything actually works on it.

What exactly is supposed to operate on the house battery and for how long before it dies?

I'm no pro on the fridge subject but I would imagine that if the fridge has a level and it reads good you should be ok. As for the house battery it should power all your 12v items,(lights,water pump, furnace blower and such. As for how long that depends on many factors. Battery type and condition and number of batteries being top.
