  1. Ray Neither Brett nor I nor others are saying ignore the sentence you seem to focus on. What we are suggesting is to consider the entire set of instructions from the tire companies. If you know for a fact you have no tire in overload you are more than OK to run the inflation shown on the tire placard. That inflation is based on the assumption you are running your axles at GAWR. If you would like a bit better ride then you might consider following the section in the tire companies current detailed instructions and consult the charts. and ensure you always have no less than the minimum inflation shown. I suggest you do an even better job and set your TPMS low pressure warning level at the minimum pressure needed to support the heaviest end of that axle. You set your CIP to the minimum +10% and set the high pressure warning on the TPMS to the CIP + 25%. I would consider the best all around solution to the question of what pressure to run. or if you prefer just follow the Placard. Your choice. Any chance you will be at Indy. If so I suggest you attend one or both of my tire seminars.
  2. Can you provide the specific design name of your Toyo tires?
  3. You say it showed +50 psi when parked. While heat soak from hot brakes can warm a tire, that sounds a bit excessive. There wasn't another RV parked nearby by any chance? RE TPMS I bought Tire Traker TT500 system. I like the Lifetime Warranty, the ability to program my own warning levels and the cool "Morning Reset" mode to allow me to get cold inflation readings in the AM without having to get outside the RV. I will be at Indy if anyone wants to see my system. Send me a message so we can connect.
  4. To all who replied: Well I did finally pay attention to the combined knowledge of the group here. I have a DPDT switch that selects Shore Power or RV inverter power. The Inverter is wired to a relay that gets it's power through a lighted switch to the Ignition so I can't drain the coach battery by running the inverter. I will be at Indy Monday late afternoon till Sat Noon after my last Seminar. Drop me a message if you are interested in seeing the install and leave your contact info so I can call you. I am scheduled to give 6 seminars so have a rather full schedule of Genealogy and Tire seminars. (at least I know those topics
  5. According to the schematic my Refrig is wired directly to the 110v line that runs to the shore power plug. No Inverter was provided by Coachmen I have no 110v AC if I am not plugged into shore power. Short term (on trip to Indy) I will shut off breaker at power center to isolate refrig 110v circuit. Then when others can look at what i have at Indy we can decide best next step. We never run anything on 110v when driving.
  6. RE back-feed. I did not think that if I applied 110v to the output side of a AC>DC converter it would act like a DC > AC Inverter. I picked up a DPDT switch. Am looking for ways to run cords to various devices. Not a lot of room in my Class-C
  7. I am having problems changing my Profile. Right now the "Travel" item requires the selection of "with children" or "with pets" or "Full time". We do not travel with children or pets nor do we travel full time.
  8. Coach did not come with an inverter. Only a standard converter. I am in a small Class-C so don't have the bells & whistles all you big class-a folks have.
  9. Agree but didn't find any fully automatic system. Also didn't find DPDT switch but figure it should be OK as long as I disconnect the 110v system when the chassis engine is off.
  10. No ice maker. I understand that it is possible to run on propane. Issue I have is that if there were an accident having the propane "on" can be a big problem. (See Mac the Fire Guy) Now some / many might not feel this is a serious concern and I understand accept that position. I may even be irrational in this concern but feel it is possible to keep the food cold enough to keep the DW happy using the 12 v system from my engine. Coach has no on-board inverter from Coachmen.
  11. I understand the goal of having only one power source at a time. In My Class-C I only have 110V in the coach when plugged into shore power. Not sure if I understand the "backfeed" or "closed-Loop" unless I were to keep engine running (inverter active) and also plug in the shore power. I am installing a double poll switch that will isolate the inverter from the 110v system. Switch is accessible near control panel right inside my entry door. Ross and others, I will be at Indy. I should be in Governing Board / Committee 30 amp lot unless I burn to the ground on my drive from Akron to Indy Aim to arrive on 10th late afternoon. Can give "free tours" of my rv on 11th
  12. Still have absorption fridge. I'm in a Class-C. The OE fridge works fine. I would just like to shut off the propane when driving.
  13. I would like to not have to plug & unplug the refrig every time I connect to shore power. That plug is only acessable through the outside refrig vent door.
  14. Got DPST so end up with on/off of the output of the Inverter. This accomplishes same as just completely removing the extension cord between output of inverter and the outlet that connects to the Refrig.
  15. Brett Can do. Didn't think about the 110V side as I had no problems with prior install but I would prefer to do things in a safer manner. Off to Lowes electric dept.
