Air conditioner we bought: http://amzn.to/2tfWuUK
This is our second full summer living in an RV off the grid and we finally caved in and bought an rv air conditioner (a Dometic Penguin II). Our first summer was borderline miserable - so much so that we had to leave the property during the heat of the day and not return until 8pm. This summer we want to stay here, even on 105 degree days (yes that’s the hottest temperature we’ve...

The RV air conditioning units that have been around for years are made in such a way that they really want to perform for a long time but with all those years and, like in our case many different owners, maintenance was not performed like it should have been and we were having issues with our AC not cooling enough. I made this Vid to show you want I found on mine and although I didn't Capture it on Video, it made the temperature drop on very similiar days from a pleasant 75 degrees after running...

This video describes how to replace your capicitors in an RV air conditioner.
CAUTION: Make sure to unplug your main power before working on the air conditioner. Also, be sure to short across the capacitor terminals to discharge them before trying to remove the wires.
My unit is a Coleman Mach, although other brands will be similar. When I turned on my air conditioner all it did was buzz so I took some steps to determine that the fan capacitor was not working. I identified th...

Update on my Chinese 3250 watt portable generator. I've had this genny for just over 2 years now, with no problems other than a malfunctioning oil level sensor. Those sensors almost always fail; my solution is to just unplug the connector to the sensor. That sensor is just a gimmick anyway, and is no substitute for checking the oil every time you use the genny.
This specific generator is NLA as this specific brand name. But that's ok because you can still get the exact same generator with ...
