  1. Isolator question

    Replaced the isolator (found out you have to disconnect both batteries or you get a shock lol my bad) now it's charging both batteries YEAH!!! Thanks fo r the info guys.
  2. Isolator question

    So with my rig it seems the Coach battery is charging but not the truck battery is that still an isolator problem?
  3. Use of non working fridge

    You could always try to fix your. One thing that I've seen work is remove it and place it upside down for 48 hours re invert let sit another 8 and it may work again. Also check the burners it could be a simple repair/fix and save yourself alot of money.
  4. What is this toy home??

    http://losangeles.craigslist.org/ant/rvs/3992693683.html Can't figure out what it is but it looks pretty neat anyone know?
  5. California has the same law CVC 22400, gotta be carefull but it's something you could talk your way out of as long as you aren't a jerk to the cops. And remember don't fight them tell them no and if they insist let them you can beat them in court it's easier then getting beaten at the scene.
  6. I love my dolphin but I do wish it was an auto. pulling up onto leveling blocks, large hills in campgrounds, I think if I ever got another I'd look for one with an auto transmission and eat the 1-2 mpg difference.
  7. WHERE IS MY COACH BATTERY?? 1988 Dolphin

    Also could be the water in the battery, if it's not sealed it my just need some distilled water to be fine again.
  8. drinking water on the road cross country

    Neat toy but I still use a filter allowes me to fill from just about any water source (yes even public sprinklers but I don't recomend it lol) Cheap and easy to use. http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/water-thief/4690
  9. Average age of Toy owners?

    Wife and I are 31 nought our Toy about three years ago and use her as often as we can.
  10. Types of anode rods.

    I wish I had an atwood then lol but I have a suburban which uses a rod as it's not an aluminum tank like an atwood. Yeah the odor and taste get bad if I don't flush it every 3 months with peroxide. So that's why I'm trying to figure out which rod is best but no one can seem to tell me, (dealer suggested just replace the tank for about $400 but I didn't like that idea).
  11. Need to build Dog Ramp

    What about a motorcycle ramp they would hold the weight be prefab and easy to use harbor tool and freight sells a nice 30" one for about a hundred http://www.harborfreight.com/1200-lb-capacity-convertible-aluminum-loading-ramp-94057.html
  12. 12 Volt plugs

    You could replace your top light with one of these and they make a fan that plugs into it, very simple to do and would make the outlet near the loft. http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-RV-Camper-12V-2-Bulbs-Interior-Light-w-Accessory-Plug-FREE-SHIPPING-/121096008930?pt=Motors_RV_Trailer_Camper_Parts_Accessories&hash=item1c31e274e2&vxp=mtr
  13. Ok so my anode rod isn't dead yet I just drained and flushed my water heater tank like I do every year or so but I'm thinking about changing types. I have the magnesium one and was thinking of swapping to a zinc one I'm told it will be beter in my system and keep the water smelling beter longer. They say they will fit but they look very short compaired to my current one. I also thought about the aluminum one but not sure the benefits of that. Any thoughts or ideas?
  14. The three bigest things in boosting the power in my 82 were 1 spark plugs changed, 2 Fuel filter changed 3. the bigest improvement was when I switched to a K&N filter for the intake. A webber would also give you more power but it's expensive and can make it illegal in some states.
