RVing with Pets

If you travel with your pets, what do you do when you want to sightsee and can't take them with you? I know most RV parks we have been in have rules against leaving the pets unattended. Also we do not have an automatic generator start on our 2015 36LA. We were newbies at the time we bought and didn't even know there was such a thing. Is it possible to add this to our generator?

We don’t have an auto-start generator either. We fire up the gen if needed, set the A/C, turn the TVs on and close the shades. We do leave a note in the door with our number to call if there are any problems. We never leave them more than a couple hours.

We' ve always stayed at campgrounds near where we'll be sightseeing - Full hookups and A/C - and take the TOAD to go sightseeing.

We use this still...even though we have Auto Gen Start and dual ac units now.

Our previous fifth wheel had precious little insulation, one air conditioner...and in Florida would get hot in a flash.

There are many different alarm systems available out there. Having one that you can check from wherever you are helps relieve the anxiety of leaving your pets for day trips.

Our Samoyeds love their morning and evening walks...otherwise put on some lite fm...dim the lights, pull the shades...and they want to nap mid-day.

Can’t say that I blame them.

We do the same with our 3 dogs. We’ve had people ask if we are afraid someone will break in while we are out. Our standard answer is that if you survive the two German Shepherd’s gauntlet, when you get to the Alaskan malamute, he will show you where everything is!

Yes there is a system you can add I believe it's from Onan. We were looking at something like that but upgraded to a Coach with auto start.

I can say the auto start is great when it's a hot area with pets.

Adding AGS...I think you'll find all the Onan generators have the capability. It is a matter of choosing the option that is right for your setup. The Magnum Energy MS-2812 that we have installed can control an AGS. So in our case the ME-AGS-N is the component to use. I am sure if you have a different Inverter/Charger setup...they may also have a dedicated control of some sort to connect to the Generator. If you don't then there are stand alone units such as the ME-AGS...without the N (network) suffix. It has dials to adjust the settings on the face of the unit...and I believe it will connect to most installations.

For air conditioning triggering...the ME-AGS-N can be connected to some Dometic air conditioning controllers with a communications dongle called the PT-2 or PT-1...one is a two wire variety...the other a single wire variety. That is a slick setup...because it actually monitors the temperature set on your thermostat...in lieu of a separate temp probe.

We've hired a pet sitter numerous times. I usually ask the rv park for recommendations. Several times an off duty employee took the chance to make a few dollars. Or we've used a "rover.com" type service. Works well for us. We hate to leave them for more than a few hours without someone looking after them. Knowing they are okay makes it much more fun to spend the day sightseeing.
