What did you do to your camper today?

The time delay jumper is the very small piece of inverted U shaped plastic (I think) that just lifts out - perhaps with a pair of tweezers. Thankfully, the units has a lifetime limited warranty so if there is a problem it will be replaced at no cost.


And....for reasons I can't figure out, I can't copy the picture from their installation manual......ugh!

I have a pic of the board with the jumper ON and one with the jumper OFF. I'll post them tomorrow.

I received both pics from the Progressive Industries technician who handled my Contact Us query. I suggested a minor edit to the manual I received with my unit - that they replace "Set time delay jumper..." with "Leave the factory installed time delay jumper in place…." since no change is necessary if the 15 second delay is needed.

Brought the fiver home and loaded it up for this weekend's trip to sycamore lodge.

DH swapped out the busted fridge propane line (was pinched by the kitchen slide). After he went to bed I checked how he routed it. Yup, it was gonna pinch again so I cut the zip ties. I then resecured the hose in a better position to prevent it from getting damaged by the slide again.

Installed a Progressive hard wire 50amp surge protector to give me piece of mind in storms and at home since I keep the rig plugged all the time.

Were you able to get a good one installed yet. I'm heading out for a few days of camping and shore power issues will also be farther from my mind this time out.

I just pulled the original one out and packed it up to send back last night. It won't take long to install the new one when it gets here.
I'll post the re-install when it's done.

Text with pics: 'you can find it next to the receptacle for the data cable. It is a small black plastic square (¼ x ¼ inch) mounted vertically. It is next to a small yellow capacitor and exposes two metal pins'

And what arrangement would that be? Getting a price on a 16' x 8' sunscreen?

Here's what I did to my camper today besides finishing up my EMS-HW50C installation: I greased the fittings at the top of my landing gear! Wouldn't have known to do that without info. I gleaned from this magic forum.

Huh? Nope, these weren't pointed out to me in the PDI for my 1st ever 5th wheel.

Say what? Nope, I didn't know to ask and it wasn't on my PDI checklist.

Camping this weekend. Water pump was making rattling noise. Unscrewed access and moved filter wrench that had fallen on top of it.

That will take at least 2 days of total rest to recuperate...
