Packed up the trailer for leg one of Goshen 2014. TV washed, cleaned and Bikes on roof ready for departure in the morning!

I asked the City last year to trim the tree in front of my house, they came yesterday and worked around the Rockwood in the driveway. Lots of clearance now!

As for my comments that it's pulling upwards of 20 amps at times, she said that is expected - the hotter it gets, the more it's going to pull.

So...my AC is ok.


What I Did To My Trailer Today: I authorized my local dealer to repair the couple of minor cuts in the roof and replace the antenna coax that the oak branch ripped out when I drove under it. I'm thinking about asking the neighbor if I can trim the rest of that branch off that overhangs the street!

In 1 of your previous posts you said it was pulling more amps than you thought it should and wasn't cooling very well.

Now the high amp draw is normal? I would think when the AC/compressor is running, it should pull the same whether it was 100* or 80* outside. The AC won't know the difference as long as the thermostat tells it to run. 22 amps seems a little high from my experience. Might I ask how you were measuring the amp draw.

And now it is cooling better than expected. Is it now parked in the shade so the AC doesn't have to work as hard? Was it in the open sun before?

Now about the tree limb, if it is over the street and is in the right-of-way, I wouldn't ask, I'd cut it myself. Or at least get the city/county to do it.

Red wolf: our campers ac was terrible whileout at a campground in SC.... It would not cool well and struggled to run sometimes. After getting home it was fine. Might it have been a power issue at the CG? I am pretty certain our issue was, got a PI power protector as soon as we landed at home!

Dbar: I might do this, we give them away at the station. No not the most theft proof but it will keep the honest honest and the not so needi g to work a bit harder for their quarry. ...

Cajun: thanks, I think we might get the door painted (I'll get this done professionally) to match the rest of the trailer as well. I love the colors but they left the doors and storage doors white... I would have pad the extra $500 for the effort to pInt the door to match..

Whew... OK, that was alot... I'm out!
