Thanks for the comment. We converted to 100% LED lights everywhere inside and even the running lights & headlights. The way we "Boon-dock" is generator running if we need power for anything or all off. All original propane/ammonia/DC/AC appliances have been replaced so nothing runs on DC except a few selective LED lights and sensors. The generator powers the AC appliances and the battery charger. The alternator charges the battery while driving. You were correct to assume that there would be a DC drain. You have given me the opportunity to supply readers with vital information. Thank you again!
Good morning, we are learning to use this site. I see you're a senior member and have answered several questions. We have a Monaco Diplomat 1999.We are boondocking and we are having inverter problems or gen issues. The gen has been cutting off on us, we can get it started but it will run a few minutes then cut off. The inverter shows its charging but the inverter and the gen shut down. Any suggestions? The gen has fuel and we have new batteries, we're in Virginia
Not sure I understoon your answer on hooking up safety chains to your toad while on a dolly. I have a 2014 Ford Focus and I have a big Demco dolly with chains for the car safety. But I can't find anywhere under that Ford to hook up a safety chain. There is a plastic pan that covers the engine entirely and can't see where to hook up to any frame or front end structure. First time for us to try and hook up this new car. Any ideas please!! John Stone - Senior Class-C RVer.
