I thought I read somewhere that in such a case, the inverter will be bypassed.
That has been my understanding too.  When plugged into shore power or running the generator, all 110v outlets get their energy direct from those sources, not the inverter.  I wonder now.

When we use inverted 110V  for our laptop, the power supply buzzes and gets warmer than would otherwise.  I considered getting a 12V power supply specific to work with a 12v outlet, but never followed through getting one.  I think a laptop 12V supply would be electrically cleaner for the computer, and use less power too.

we actually had to pull over and stop because the sand was so thick in the air.
I Would Think That's Hard On The Full Body Paint Job.

Smart to change your air filter after that visit.

Yep, I hear you.  That is why we settled on towing a 4x4.

We had found ourselves saying "no" to too many roads in the south-west, but also in mountainous and urban areas.  With few exceptions, we learned it's best to bring the Jeep along.  We did tow it on our two week trip around Lake Michigan, but learned in that case we should have left it home.  So it's not something to take on "every" planned vacation.

Getting around in a 2100 does offer more flexibility than our 2350.  But some of those roads in Utah are just too hard on any PC.  They were too hard on our car that we towed before as was the case in Escalante on the road to the trail head to the narrows.  Driving a Toyota MR2 Spyder through deep dry washed rock river beds was our turning point.  So the 4x4 became our tow vehicle of choice.

If we had a PC Quigley 4x4, I still would not take the PC on some of the roads we travelled due to over-hangs, tip-overs, narrows, height clearances, damaging jolts, wash-boarding and such.  Better for us to tow the 4x4 for such day excursions.

Holly,

We have more than PCs in common.  Our involvement in charities is a big time consumer and a joy to be a part of.  We go along trying to do life right with a vision for a lifestyle without my distracting full time job. If only I could retire soon and move on and deeper into what is dearest to my heart.

God is good.  He has blessed us with so much including me with a good and once very interesting job for nearly all my adult life.  A job that allowed Irene to be a stay-at-home mother.  I am not complaining here.  Life has been a blessing even with all the hardships lumped within to groom us better.  But I do dream for a different kind of "better" as I am getting tired of the typical work day pulling me away.

Oh Holly,

I read your post here and then visited your blog and read through some visits and then your epiphany.

What are you doing to my brain?  

We turned 56 years old earlier this year.  I am tiredly working a job on a computer in a cubicle at the same company for over 35 years.  At home our kitchen face-lifting project here refuses to go back together smoothly.  Our lives are so busy that we missed Irene's weekly M.S. Avonex injection the past two nights.  We are "Tired" people.  I escape to a couple of RV forums to break away.  Then I read about Holly and John, knowing our PC is just 15 seconds away from this laptop.

Thank You for sharing that.

Thanks for the welcome Ron.  I have read the Tricks and Tips section paying particular attention to your post on the Tripp Lite Inverter/Charger.  I am still trying to understand the coach electrical system and will likely have questions specific to the Tripp Lite system.  I will ask for help for sure!

Welcome David and Sharon from me too.
I suggest you spend some time in the Tips and Tricks section.  You may find the older posts  especially interesting as  they are zoomed in on the  earlier model years.

I practice the same as Tom & Bob with the rear tires.

I have yet to rotate the front tires and it has been around 25,000 miles to-date.  The kind of rotation I am considering would be to dismount the tires off the steel rims and flip them so the inside is then facing outside.  This would be done to balance out uneven tire wear from days of broad-side winds while traveling across the Great Plains.

It sounds like a good idea to install new extenders.

That makes a lot of sense, the rubber hose inside the stainless steel braiding becoming stiff, making it difficult or impossible to get a tight seal again at the valve.

Best to remove them or replace them, but not reuse them after 7+ years.

My valve extensions have never been disturbed since they were installed on the rig by the factory when it was built in 2007.  I am concerned over a leak the first time I touch them, considering removing them as a precaution, but wondering if I'll be able to add air afterward.

Oh....I got it Tom!  That makes sense.

That is a very easy mistake to make.  I'll have to make a mental note the next time I replace one.

Thanks Tom.
