  1. Here is an interesting read for the bourbon/whiskey connoisseurs. Bourbon doesn't have to be made in Kentucky. Here's why (courier-journal.com)
  2. Since we now know that bourbon and whiskey are the same in Tn., here is a list of the whiskey trail in Tn. https://www.tnwhiskeytrail.com/distilleries/ On my many trips to Tn., I learned that in a dry county in Tn., only the spirits made within that county can be sold in that county.
  3. Welcome to the forum. Unless you are getting a SUPER deal, I would RUN, not walk away from this deal. The value of such a coach IHMO will be drastically reduced just by driving it home.
  4. The second screw on each side is probably behind the crown molding. How hard will it be to remove the crown molding? Most of the time the crown molding only has a few small nails or staples, if this is the case, it can always be replaced with a few nails.
  5. On all roads there is no guaranty that bridges will be a minimum height. Here is the requirements on an interstate. On Interstates, the clear height of structures shall not be less than 16 feet (4.9 meters) over the entire roadway width, including the useable width of shoulder. In urban areas, the 16-foot (4.9-meter) clearance shall apply to at least a single routing. Most box semi trailers are 13',6", and no that is not some rule that exist, just common practice. Many atlas's will give clearances on a route. Currently, Google Maps does not support different vehicles types or any commercial vehicle settings. ... Many non professional drivers hit the road every year with recreational vehicles and find themselves stopped (or damaged) by an unexpected low bridge.Sep 13, 2019 It is a very good thing to research your route for both Height, weight, and width when planning a trip. Your question is a very good one and thanks for making yourself and others of thes facts.
  6. Welcome to the forum! If the house batteries are 6 volts, then they should be in series as the bottom diagram shows. But if 12 volts, they must be parallel as the top diagram shows. Be sure that 12 volt batteries are parallel, if incorrectly wired the circuit will be 24 volts, 12+ 12 = 24. Most units from the coach builder were 2 - 6+6=12, golf cart batteries were commonly used because they have in most cases a greater amp/hour rating than 2 12 volts.
  7. If you don't have a manual, here is pdf link to probably same generator that you have, Page 51 shows fault code that you referred to, page 54/55 have some pertinent info. https://www.granddesignrv.com/sites/default/files/Cummins Onan Generator Manual.pdf
  8. Again, be sure to check oil and coolant levels. From 3/4 to 1/2, (don't know how long between) "maybe leak", but not likely, propane goes out if leaking, and has an odor, so unless there is a smell, probably not a leak large enough to amount to your size problem, certainly can not hurt to check for leaks for safety sake. Try putting a load on the generator next time it cranks to make sure that it is producing current and see if it runs longer. Some older models generators used an exciter to start the generator function, if no current from generator, it will self stop the engine. If your fridge is on propane, it should be showing LP, if AC then it is on AC. What is the model # on generator?
  9. Or how cold is it outside? When was the last time the propane tank filled? I use a propane generator also, and had the same issue to date three times in the last five years. Every time thus far it has been the result of an overfilled propane tank. If too cold side, propane can give the same results. Also check the radiator coolant level, this will shut down the unit, as well as low oil.
  10. If anyone had read read my first instructions, there are ways to measure both electric and resistive to determine where the failure is. The website that I referred to does both, so there was no need to retype all that I typed before. The sending unit is nothing more than a potentiometer (rheostat) inside the tank that raises or lower the resistance to ground which in turn raises or lowers the voltage at the gauge. If no resistance between the + and - on terminals on gauge, then 0 voltage will occur but a test between the + terminal and a known ground then battery voltage will result, the op was measuring 7 volts which shows both voltage and resistance, therefore, time to look for stuck or broken float.
  11. Welcome to the forum weareontheGO. Your question appeared last Sunday and I answered in detail, then the forum went down and those posts have dissapeared since. I have found a pretty good read for you since, so rather than to retype it, here is a website with a very detailed to your question. https://www.sailmagazine.com/diy/test-replace-fuel-gauge-sending-unit Hope that it will help.
  12. Welcome to the forum! There is no way to take the hardwire with you while traveling. An air card or traveling modem are both through cellular services. Although several services will provide you with a static IP address for enough money. I have set up many VPN's through cellular service and have not had any problems with it. Depending on the area that you connect, sometimes it is slower than other a dedicated hardwire.
  13. Ditto Doc, I use T Mobile smart phone, sometimes a little spotty, but with wifi calling I can call from almost anywhere as long as wifi is available.
  14. What type cables from receiver to tv? How long are they Ross? Also, what model receiver?
