  1. Kitchen Faucet Replacement

    I put the same one in our Sportcoach have the same sink works great the old one leaked all over the counter
  2. ?8 Point Torx Bits?

    Good info Herman to bad they don’t build cars and coaches that way it would save a lot of weight in the tool box
  3. Frozen LP Tank Leaking??

    The fact that they are removable is a plus I’d think ? if you were in an extended stay you could just remove and drive to a refill station in the toad instead of taking the whole show on the road
  4. Carl if I owned 10 houses I think I’d own a liquor store too!
  5. Fiver Cost/ Discounts

    If you want to see a wild fiver look up Will Smith’s custom made fifth wheel. There was a tv show that showed it being built well over 1 mil.

    They look like a horizontal beer can dispenser really nice job on the coach enjoy
  9. Coverting Coach From 30amp to 50amp

    Bill 12000 at 120 volts would be 100 but your service is 12000 at 240 volt which is 50 the load will balance over the 240 with the neutral carrying the difference
  10. Coverting Coach From 30amp to 50amp

    Bill look at it this way 30 amp service = 3600 watts 50 amp service = 12000 watts so you have 3 times the power on a 50 the link I put on last post explained it better than I can in a house you have a 2 pole 100 amp main breaker you don't call that a 200 amp service it's 100 same in a rv a 2 pole 50 amp main breaker is a 50 amp service I'm done maybe an electrical engineer can chime in

    http://www.rv-dreams.com/rv-electrical.html this may help explain 50 verses 30
  12. Coverting Coach From 30amp to 50amp

    Tom i guess it was a bad attempt at trying to be funny I was told by the owner of a park I have worked at that 100 amp shore power will be coming in the future that means you will have a 2 pole 100 amp breaker and the power cord feeding the coach will be much larger
  13. Coverting Coach From 30amp to 50amp

    Bill you will not draw 100 amps you do not add the 2 poles together you will have more capacity if the pedestal is correctly wired because you have 2 legs that are 50 ea either leg gets to 50 breaker trips you can not draw more than 50 on either leg if you don't believe me get hold of a 240 volt load bank and prove it for yourself 100 amp is coming not to far out power cord for that will be like a fire hose 240v x 50a = 12000 watts L1 120v x 50a = 6000 watts L2 120v x 50a = 6000watts total for 1 & 2 is 12000 watts max continues load at 80% = 9600 watts or 40 per leg if you exceed this the breaker will start to heat up and eventually open on thermal load most problems are due to old outdated wiring in park systems and ther fear their ugly head when the temperature goes up and air conditioning load is up
  14. Coverting Coach From 30amp to 50amp

    Brett you don't add the 2 legs together they are only 50 per leg the both legs are pined together because if one side overloads code says both have to open together even if the other is ok
  15. Coverting Coach From 30amp to 50amp

    When you plug into a 50 amp shore power you do not have 100 amps total you will only be able to draw 50 since the breaker is only 50 what happens on a 50 is if one leg is using more than the other the difference goes to the neutral conductor so if L1 is 20 amps and L2 is 10 amps 20 amps would be on L1 and L2 and the neutral would carry 10 amps if the load was balanced the neutral should be 0 max continues load should not exceed 80 % of the breaker rating per national electric code if you go over 80% the breaker could eventually overheat and trip on thermal you don't always have to exceed full rating of breaker to have it trip the advantage is that with a 120/240 volt supply you do have more total wattage available
