    air bags

    I replaced all 8 of mine two years ago and all 8 shocks, they were 30 years old and one of the left drive axel bags developed a leak. Ride improvement as well.
  2. I owned 1992 Crosscountry 34 foot diesel pusher on a spartan chassis, nice long wheel base for a 34 footer, it rode and handled very well, only problem that I had with it was a leaking roof and delamination of the side walls.
  3. How many amps is the generator, and how many amps is the residential refrigerator? Low AC voltage can cause a fault in the inverter also. I agree that the batteries should come under scrutiny also. But those AC's kicking in may be causing low voltage from the generator at times, at least try running the fridge on the genny instead of the inverter for a period to see if it corrects the inverter problem. 2000 watts is a pretty small inverter, depending on what ever else is on the inverter could be well overloaded, 2000 watts is only about 17.5 amps @ 120 volts.
  4. I'm an online member, and I see no app avaiable, but the online version can be viewed from any device that has an internet connection. It is geared for 40 feet and higher but you can search for smaller.
  5. Well, I clicked on the link in Joe's post and viola! Serving the RV community since 2001 with a user friendly spiral bound guide - 500 pages, lays flat, quality paper and large print. All parks personally visited by the authors. Also included are satellite views of all the parks along with Google Map features embedded. This for some reason looks like it has something intended for RV'rs
  6. If any of you know what Kudzu is, the only thing that will kill Kudzu is hogs, goats can't eat the leaves and vines fast enough to kill it, but hogs will root up the roots that look very much like potatoes.😉
  7. Deer season is year round in my neighborhood, there are plenty of them here. We allow anyone to shoot photo's and nothing else at them.
  8. Around here, this is a very true statement. LOL😆 And the funnier thing is the short female weighing 110# getting out of the 1 ton dually who really need a ladder to get in and out of the truck.
  9. Somebody sure did some funny wiring, red in most cases indicate positive, and black normally is negative. Glad you were able to figure it out, just make sure that those red wires are attached to the chassis and not the generator/alternator. I haven't seen positive ground on anything except military vehicles/generators in years. Some of the pre 12 volt farm tractors (6 volt) used positive ground. LOL🙃
  10. Tp-link makes a very good load balancing multi wan router, very inexpensive, and is capable of combining up to 4 incoming wan's (internet providers). https://www.amazon.com/SafeStream-TL-R600VPN-Broadband-throughput-Concurrent/dp/B007B60SCG/ref=sr_1_2?dchild=1&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIi6L1npfd6wIVCr3ACh0JpgJHEAAYASAAEgL-DPD_BwE&hvadid=232554843091&hvdev=c&hvlocphy=9012455&hvnetw=g&hvqmt=e&hvrand=10510855631575181003&hvtargid=kwd-360969681247&hydadcr=18040_9812732&keywords=tp+link+load+balancing+router&qid=1599692586&sr=8-2&tag=googhydr-20 You can find instructions in the router literature, or on youtube. And if you still need help, you can PM me. There are other brands available, but I have very good luck with these and they are less expensive than most. The key is load balancing, multi wan.
  11. I enlarged your house battery picture, and as Herman said they are correctly wired. The engine starter battery as DD69 said is too small for the job. As Herman said you need to disconnect the engine battery and put a good charger on it to try to bring it up to maximum voltage (at least 12.8) rested, then have the battery checked with a reputable checker to determine if the battery is good. A bad cell in the battery will cause the alternator for the coach to falsely try to overcharge because the battery is not coming up as it should and will eventually ruin the alternator. Also though, a bad connection to the battery, either positive or ground, can cause the battery to not charge correctly. A bad connection can be at either end of the cable, not just the battery end, this is especially true on the ground connection.

  13. Look under rv awnings, https://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_trksid=p2380057.m570.l1313&_nkw=rv+awnings&_sacat=0. I've had very good luck both adding and replacing awnings from there.
