[quote quote=38189]I am waiting to see what the dealer says is the cause sprung cap. Do you think they would admit liability for their forklift lot boys? They claim that Keystone does not pay them enough for warranty work which is why my rig is now going on 7 weeks waiting for some simple repairs. When will you be in Southern California again? We would like to buy dinner for you and your wife.[/quote]
The RV industry is in a big boom phase right now, so I find many on the industry don’t care as much as they should because they are so busy. How quickly they forget 2008 when a ton of them went out of business.
I recently had a good experience with my original Keystone dealer on Vancouver Island, though. Had the fridge fail under extended warranty, they replaced it. 50 dollars deductable was all I paid. 3 days to get it shipped and same day install, plus I had brakes checked, bearings repacked and all the suspension bushings, bolts, shackles and both equalizers replaced that day.
So there are some good ones out there.
Thanks. We are in Washington state right now and plan to take our time so likely 2 -3 weeks before we get down there to SoCal region. We’ll probably end up on the Palm Springs, Salton Sea, Borrego area for a while before heading east to AZ.December 6, 2016 at 2:23 am #39064Richard MachidaMember
Thank you for your videos on your boondocking setup especially the TM-2030 installation and setup. I am in the process of upgrading the batteries to 6V golf cart batteries and adding an inverter to our rig. And largely based on your video, I’m installing a Trimetric monitor as one of the initial steps. Solar will be added in a couple of months once I find a clean path from the roof to the front bay. Do you have a link to a good table of wire size, resistance and current capacity?December 6, 2016 at 9:16 am #39068RayKeymaster
You’re welcome, Richard. Love my Trimetric
You can find some tables here – https://www.solar-electric.com/wire-cable-information.html/
Also if you do a search for wire size calculator on Google you’ll find a bunch. 🙂December 6, 2016 at 4:36 pm #39071Richard MachidaMember

Thanks. I found some and it seems like everyone had their own recommendations with only some things being consistent. Maybe folks just reporting on what they normally do.
