  1. These are the items I decided to buy. What do you think🤔? https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000BGOJ9Q/ref=ya_aw_od_pi?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0006N5RW2/ref=ya_aw_od_pi?ie=UTF8&psc=1 https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0030453CI/ref=ya_aw_od_pi?ie=UTF8&psc=1
  2. This is my 1985 escaper I purchased in November. This weekend I removed the carpet and started to clean it. After I removed the carpet I noticed holes in the floor where I believe the table used to be. I also found that the floor in the door way right when you walk in was rotting. I am a total rookie and was looking for suggestions. Any input is appreciated.
  3. Or should I get this one with cap? https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0006N5RYK/ref=mp_s_a_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1512592892&sr=8-10&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65
  4. Any opinions about this product? https://www.amazon.com/Valterra-Products-T1020-Termination-Bayonet/dp/B0006N5RW2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1512589413&sr=8-2&keywords=rv+waste+cap
  5. Is the grey water tank you are referring to a totally different tank from the waste tank? Please excuse my ignorance, I am totally new to the R.V. World.
  6. I purchased a 1985 toyota/Damon escaper that did not come with the proper equipment to dispose of waste properly. Where can I purchase the cap and hose so that I will be able to use the drain at a facility?
  7. Brake lights do work when head lights are on

    Please explain how to check the grounds. The first picture is the brake lights working with head lights off, the second is them not working with the head lights on.
  8. How to use electric plugs in the cabin?

    Thanks for all the information. I have been web surfing around all the links and suggestions you all have been giving and have came to the conclusion that I should just invest in a solar starter kit. I am currently looking at the Renogy solar web site. Does anyone have suggestions or experience with this company and their solar products?
  9. How to use electric plugs in the cabin?

    So would it be better to purchase a pure sine inverter? How did you know this unit was modified sine wave? I am just learning about electric systems and the different mechanisms people use in their rv’s for power.
  10. How to use electric plugs in the cabin?

    I do want to get a solar system installed in the future, but right now all I want to do is turn on a coffee pot or a vacuum when I need to. I was thinking of an inverter as a quick way to get power until I figure everything out. Also, please advise me on any solar systems that you recommend or use, any input is always welcome. This is the inverter I was considering to buy. https://m.lowes.com/pd/Power-Bright-2300-Watt-Power-Inverter/3125909?cm_mmc=SCE_PLA_ONLY-_-ToolsAndHardware-_-SosTrailerRampsAndTowing-_-3125909:Power_Bright&CAWELAID=&kpid=3125909&CAGPSPN=pla&k_clickID=c48542e6-512b-4747-a834-43ca8c916919&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIj4qCrr6j1wIVAm5-Ch0h8AKmEAQYAiABEgL5_PD_BwE
  11. How to use electric plugs in the cabin?

    How about any suggestions for power inverters or generators?
  12. How to use electric plugs in the cabin?

    Thank you to everyone for all their information and insights. Expect plenty of more questions from me.😄😎
  13. How to use electric plugs in the cabin?

    If I purchase the rv cord adapter that Linda mentioned I can draw power from any standard power source? Would I be able to draw power from electric car charge stations?
  14. How to use electric plugs in the cabin?

    Thank you for the quick reply. Is the picture that you are using for your profile a picture of the RV you own? If so what make and model is it? What kind of generator do you use? Is there a place that houses the generator? There might be one on my RV that I do not know about, I just purchased this on Tuesday.
  15. I need some guidance understanding how my 1985 Toyota Escaper’s cabin electricity works. I want to plug a vacuum into the electrical sockets of the cabin and use the vacuum like it is used in a house. When I plug in the vacuum there is no power, what should I do? Any advice is very much appreciated, I am totally clueless about these vehicles.
