Simple explanation of hooking your rv to utilities. ASHLEYS@LARGE
I will be getting a water filter for my input to fresh water.
Sewer hose will drain as long as it is lower than outlet....I have but not not use to often sewer hose supports along the ground. Rubber gloves are nice for sewer hose connecting and take down.
There are 50 amp adapters to 30 amp to 110. I use my 110 to keep my rv refrig. running, its a 110 home unit.
the electricity in my rv went out and through a process i found out what the issue is. the surge protector did it's job but my rv has issues still and until those are resolved it won't let the surge protector be used.
Gary Bunzer, aka the RV Doctor, recommends three test devices that all motorhome owners should carry to ensure a safe electrical connection to a shore power receptacle. Any motorhome owner can perform these simple tests before plugging a motorhome into electricity. Never assume the pedestal you're plugging into is wired properly. Better to run a few easy tests and be sure it's safe to use that electrical source. http://www.fmca.com

In this episode of Ask the RV Expert, RVtravel.com editor Chuck Woodbury talkes with RV electricity expert Mike Sokol of NoShockZone.org. Mike answers a question from an RVtravel.com reader who wonders why, after an electrician wired up a 30-amp hookup at his home, that it ended up blowing out the electronics in his RV.

This vid shows you where to find your switch that will allow you to heat the water in your hot water tank electrically rather than using propane. This will save you money if you are camping at a campground. It can be hard to locate.
No manual, no problem. In this video I show you how to find out where a wire is coming from and where it's going to. In my early line of work as a auto mechanic I learned you can not trust a wiring diagram. I had to learn by trail and error to get it right, the book may have got it right but there are " lifes little unsuspected surprises". The red tester is Circuit Tracker Get-1200 made by GB, Instruments and the second one is Cen-teck Cable Tracker from Harbor Freight.
