I park mine next to the house on the north side facing east. After winterizing I just plug into the 30 amp on the side of the house. That way the coach  batteries stay charged up. Once every three weeks I take the PC out for a 15-20 mile spin to flex the tires, run the generator with the Heat strip on high and charge the engine battery. I keep the gas tank close if not to full so no moisture gets into the gas tank. I do not cover the PC as it is more work than I am willing to do and the custom covers never fix the class B+ correctly. The blue traps just blow in the wind and leave blue marks on the motorhome. I leave one of the roof vents cracked open just a little to allow air to flow in and out and keep the moisture from building up. I do not doing anything to the converter and or the inverter, just leave them set the way I normally do.

I have been doing it this way since 1984. It works for me but I am sure others have their own way of doing depending on where they live. If I lived in Florida, I would be camping year round and never put it away.

Ok I got the GCFI replaced and working this time. I went to the hardware store and got another GCFI and put it in. It still did not work, so I called Kermit and he walked me through testing to see if it was the GCFI and how to wire it properly. I had the hot wires and the load wires backward. I had the white on the silver screws and the black on the bass crews which is correct but with the two wires backward it would not work.
Thank you for all your help on this.

This afternoon I will look into the Auto Drain on the gray tank and see how hard it will be to replace the gear. It is a nice 65 degrees outside today, so a good day to take it apart. When I get the part it will probly be freezing. If I screw this up, I can always order a new one from Carol at the factory.

Ron I was on shore power when the breaker tripped. Tomorrow I will get another GFCI and try it. I did not know my wife was about to start using the hair dryer when I started the coffee maker, with every thing else going on. Most of the plugs work except those on the GFCI. The Tv works on the inverter, so I am thinking, there he goes again thinking, it is the GFCI.

I just tried it running the generator and got the same results.

This morning I went to dump before heading home and another problem occured. The gray water dump valve runs, I can hear it, but it does not open the valve. I had to pull it open in order to dump. So now I have two repairs to make.

Tom

Here is a link to a wiring diagram for the PC.  This might help.

If I am reading the diagram correctly, which is not my strong suit, it looks like the line to the GFCI goes to the TV, the kitchen and the outside. Right now none of them are working, so I may have gotten a bad replacement. Tomorrow I will get another one after I get home. 
Thank you Barry and Keelhauler for the information.

Dis the green light illuminate on the GFCI?

The orignal GFCI the light would not come on after the breaker popped, even after trying to reset it. That is why I replaced it. The new one a yellow light comes on.

The hardware store I went to is run by the Amish and they don't use electricty and only had the one GFCI.

    This morning while running the A/C heat strip, a small room heater and making coffee my wife plugs her hair dryer into the bathroom  GFCI and turns it on. She popped the 30 amp circuit breaker under the passengers bed. Now the Tv/DVD, the plug in the right over head cabinet that they plug into does not work on 110v. Also the plug under the kitchen sink and the bathroom plug do not work On 110 v. When I turn on the inverter, the Tv/DVD both work., but the sink and the bothroom plugs still don't work.I have reset all the breakers in the converter and even replaced the GFCI. All the other plug work.

    What am I missing?

We just got back from a great lunch at the September Farm. I had the toasted ham and cheese and my wife had the toasted roast beef and cheese. Both sandwichs were great. We split an small order of cheese fries which were good also. We sampled seveal cheeses and some of the baked goods. Ended up buying way more than we should have but now we are stocked up for the winter.

We did not get to meet Dave because he and his wife were visiting a sick relative. We did get to meet  A J and Mary Kate two of his childern. They are both very nice and made us feel very welcome.

If you are ever in this area this is a must stop.  ThumbsUp ThumbsUp

It would be helpful if you told us the make, model and who installed it. Phoenix has used several cameras over the years, most of which have their own monitor.  shrug

We will be staying at Flory's campground in Ronks, Pa for the Thanksgiving weekend and look forward to visiting September Farms for lunch on Friday and hopefully seeing cheese being made.  Smile

Now I understand. Thanks Ron.

Ron do you know how long AGM batteries last? I know that regular flooded batteries are sold by cranking amps and number of months they should last, ie 36, 48 or 60 months. Are AGMs the same way?

The reason we remove old tires is because they might have a blow out. I disagree with putting them on another vehicle, even a lighter one. It was a nice through but I would not do it myself.

We used AB Lifestyles and are very happy with the results. We got green ones for the short bed and tan for the long bed. She even gave us the second pillow case for each bed as we like using two pillows each.  ThumbsUp
