    Are you a 'expert' on RV inverters???
    I was considering a way to bypass my inverter, Why?
    I have 50A service, but am limited to 30A total on everything that has access to the inverter.
    Wintered in CO, tried to heat as much as possible with 110v heaters.
    Turn out the inverter limits you to 30A

    Just like I stated way back early on in this thread, waaaaaaay cheaper and a whole ton of light, if you want it that way. .

    IMO some people don't grasp what they read.
    Also, at times I know what I think I said, but the person receiving the info might not fully grasp.
    And then we have a lot of people that have the mentality of. When they are on a escalator and it stops, they need help in getting off.

    Their is a movie Idiocracy that should be required watching for anyone old enough to have kids.

    Hi Scott,
    On my way to pulling the Rad and CAC. My coach is wide open in the rear once I removed the grill(s). Can you share the following information:
    I drained the petcock in the heater core hose and radiator. any other location before I remove hoses?
    I have read the refilling procedure. Is it accurate and the best method to refill the system?
    Not sure if prior owner had a water leak or if normal condensation has rusted the face of the engine or the factory paint was just a poor job. Anyway, I plan to clean it down to the metal prime and then repaint with a high quality engine paint.
    Do you have any general recommendations past bearings, hoses and belts?

    Also, In doing some other maintenance I'm not happy with the paint on the front of the engine area. I would like to remove the RAD and CAC then pull bolts out of the items that create issues (broken bolt nightmare) and then detail the entire engine with new paint. Have you ever pulled a rear RAD/CAC out? As I shared prior, not retired just yet so I have the downtime to pull her apart and make new again. Just curious if it's a real pain in the A$% or just a matter of time and bloody knuckles.

    I have 45K on our 2004 3126. Would you recommend pulling the WP idler off and replacing the two bearings? Mainly concerned about the retainer bolts more than the bearings. however, if i'm pulling apart to anti-seize the bolts for future service......

    We have a Atwood 10 gal. dual pro/elect HWH. would light then go out, retry two additional times then fault. original board was a #91226. Now #91346. Got it on Amazon for $100.00 + free shipping. Not sure if you have the same but thought I would share.

    Scott, My dimensions 2000 energy management system appears to not be functioning correctly. Door Guy (Barry Miller) tells me he thinks you replaced yours with a magnum. I can measure 12.8 volts DC going in but no AC out. It does charge the batteries when plugged into shore power and inside AC plugs work when on shore power. Did you replace yours with a magnum and if so run into any problems? Did you need to replace the control panel in the galley?

    While looking at that I noticed water at the base of the water heater. I removed the inspection plate and can see all four hoses and there is not a leak at connections so must be old age rusting it out on the bottom. Only about $450-500 on the internet. I'll do a little searching on the Magnum to get a feel for that unit. Any how any thoughts or suggestions appreciated. I had written a lot more in this message but told mush be less than 1000 characters.
