I have the three-way refrigerator and always run the refrig on DC while driving.  The engine seems to keep the battery charge up just fine. In my previous class A, I ran the larger two-way refrig on Battery power thru the inverter while driving and never had problems with that either.  I have no objection to running a refrig on propane while driving but I don't see why I would prefer that if my batteries are handling the job.

Yes, they definitely got hacked.  I talked to Carol a short time ago.

I got an e-mail today from Carol Sims <phoenixusarv1@aol.com> that says to download a file. Of course I did not, i'm sure she got hacked and it is a Trojan or virus.

Do not click the link.  pulling hair out

Hopefully someone will tell her so she can get her account back.

Barry, and Mike:  There is another tester I highly recommend for checking presence of a hot skin condition and that is a non contact voltage detector with a sensitivity rating 90--1000volts. The unit shown in my pics below is a Klein NCV-1. It is probably the only accurate way to detect a hot skin accurately short of finding it with your fingers or a serious electrical shock.  It is also available at local hardware stores and on line.
I would also recommend reading chapter 10 in the book I reference in the pics. for more detailed information about this condition.
In the meantime I am going to investigate further to see if I can determine why my Surge Gard did not shut down or detect this condition. I will let you know what I find out.
Thanks for all the great discussion.  ThumbsUp

I find Harbor Freight to be a good source for inexpensive tools that function as described.  Here are links to a voltmeter and a receptacle test that are available for under $12.  Add to that a 30AMP to 15 AMP adapter plug from Amazon for $5.00 and you can test most electric problems for less than $17.00.

John:  No, I don't know how to verify if the unit is installed correctly, but since detecting ground faults is one of the primary functions of the device, which it apparently did not do, I would think that something is wrong somewhere.  TRC technical support could probably help (800-780-4324)

With respect to location of the SurgeGuard in the rig......I too should have discussed it with the factory before installation.  My unit is located in the wall under and next to the drivers side bed (we have a 2552). I'm not all that concerned about it though, since from what I understand only a catastrophic event (like a lightening strike or something) will cause the unit to sacrifice itself.

Regardless, I always test for a hot-skin condition when hooking up in a campground.  I have seen some folks even test for it each time they enter an RV, theirs or others.

I stapled some of the indoor/outdoor carpet on each platform.  No more sliding or any other problems with splinters, etc.

Nice idea, thanks!

Another thing that works well are yoga mats.  I found them at the 5 and under store but for $10 it was well worth it.

The twin beds in my 3100 always seem to move around a lot.  I tried anti slip paint, etc. and nothing seemed to keep them in place.  I recently tried some 2" 3M anti slip grit tape.  I cut three 4' strips and merely peeled and stuck them on the particle board under the mattresses.  It works extremely well in keeping the mattresses where they are suppose to be.  the 3M product is not  cheap but if it works what the heck!
