  2. Brake Lights On When I Turn On Headlight Switch

    by chance , have you replaced a light bulb in your tail lights recently and used the wrong light bulb . like putting a single contact 1156 bulb into a socket that suppose to have a 1157 bulb (2 contacts) . this could cause this problem . I cant see how the headlight switch could cause this . hope this helps Old Marine

  4. Which Outlet To Use For Residential Refrigerator

    I want to thank everybody for your Input. I have watched all the conversations now for the last Year or so on the Topic of RR conversion. I already added 2 more 6 Volt Batteries (now 6- 6Volt batteries). This is in hope to give me enough power on a overnight stay, so that the generator does not start in the Auto Start Mode. The fridge is a Whirlpool 19.7 cu/ft French door, and as per data Plate draws 6 amp, but that's startup Mode .The coach is a 2010 Phaeton. I had checked several coaches at last Rally in Chandler AZ and a lots of Manufacturers used Maytag RR with a 6 amp Draw and 2000 Watt Inverter .With that in mind and this forum's overall input I hope and feel this was a good choice. Thanks again to ALL with Your responses. Will let you know how it all works out. Leaving for a trip the 1st week in June. RAY
  5. Which Outlet To Use For Residential Refrigerator

    Thanks for the quick answer, Kaypsmith & Brett. My Inverter is a Xantrex 2000-- don't know about pass true feature. I assume it does , since everything worked OK all along. Meaning wile traveling the DW could use the microwave or whatever. Thanks, RAY
  6. I am in the middle of replacing the NO-COLD Refrigerator with a Whirlpool residential Fridge . I have two Outlets in the Fridge Cavity , # 1is from the Invertor , #2 is from Landline Since I would want to use both , at different Times (Driving/Dry camping, or in Campground plugged in) which outlet do you use? Appreciate Any Help I can Get . Thanks RAY
  7. Lost Electrical Outlets In 2004 Sahara

    Is this Your 110 volt outlets? Check the GFI Button-- mostly at bathroom or kitchen locations. Or check the reset button/breaker on the Inverter. If you are on generator, check the breakers on the generator. Hope this helps. BTW ,Welcome to FMCA Forum . Good Travels ,Old Marine

  9. Propane Hose

    Hi jleammont . I bought a Marshall Extend a Stay Propane Adaptor Tee from E-Bay .Turn the Propane off at the Tank ,Install the Adaptor before the Regulator ,then bolt the Regulator downstream from the Adaptor so that the Propane Appliances in the Coach are still working with the appropiate pressure .Then You can just hook up Your Webber Grill Whenever You want , just make sure You always put the access cap back on so no Dirt can get in .You may have to rig up up a braket to keep the regulator from vibrating . Hope this helps . Save Travels , Old Marine
  10. Alfa Roof AC

    Our last coach was an Alfa Gold, and we added a 13.500 Roof Air in place of the front Fantastic Vent. Also had them takeout the Fantastic Fan Control on the end of the Kitchen Cabinet and install a remote Control w/thermostat. This way the DW could easily make changes. The Tech routed the wires in behind the kitchen cabinets to underneath the refrigerator to the 110V access panel. We have not had any Problems running all Units with the Generator .The work was done by Camping World in Mesa AZ .We where Happy with their work-- no holes to cut in roof or cabinets. Hope This helps . There is also the option to contact Alfateers in Fontana California, if you want more insight. Old Marine
  11. Pueblo to Grand Junction

    I would not know about a restriction, but would not recommend US 50, I 25 to Denver, 470 west to I70 to Grand Junction but at this time of the year? I don't think I would even try. Even in the Summer its a nerving ride, steep up and down grades for long periods, but definitely better then US 50. Hope this helps (don't ask how I know). Old Marine
  12. Flat Towing

    We have a 2013 CRV with GPS,and I did have the DEAD BATTERY problem after towing 6-7 Hours, I also use a Blue Ox Brake Box . So I really don't know who the battery killer was .But I installed a Charge Wire from the Coach to the Car and I bought a switch and a Fuse with attached wires and made my own fused disconnect for about $ 8.00 .Since then no more problems. I see the same switch on the NET for $65.00-$82.00 I got The 2 Parts at Auto Zone. Hope this helps. Old Marine
  13. Chassis Maintenance & Oil Change Recommendation

    I would also say to do those maintenance Items . We have a 2010 Phaeton, although I do my own work ,so I really can't tell what a shop would charge.But with 50K and 7-8year old Coach its a verry good Idea to change all belts. And if you are the original owner and this has not been done before, then you are really running on borrowed time. But ask the shop to give you the old belts to keep as a spare, just in case something would happen down the Road and parts where not available. You might also look into getting your cooling system flushed and new coolant installed. I have just done all my maintenance and our coach is 2-3Year newer . Hind sight is never a nice thing. I hope this helps , Old Marine
  14. If you are talking about the two Knife Switches ,they are suppose to be closed when using the Coach. When having the coach in storage for extended period ,open both switches.This will stop the batteries from being depleted from the Parasitic Loads (Control Modules). Hope this helps. old marine
  15. Banff and Lake Louise

    We were at the tunnel Camp Ground in 2010 & in 2013 , had no reservation either time ,and this was in August & July had no Problems getting in ,they have 3 Camps ,#1 is the most preferred ,there You have full hook up , and it will be hard to get in without Reservation .the 2 others not so much .They are very spacious Spots and also supplied firewood at no charge (and you want it if you want to be outside) .both times the Moscitos were terrible. Make sure to bring repellant ,its very costly in Canada. We dit not find a CG at Lake Louise,But don't miss it .Hope this helps Old Marine
