I will create a thread for the genny later so as to not divert this thread too far

Those points Switz were discussed in another thread earlier and honda rep gave all the numbers as well - good points - it is not "true 50amp service" - more like 22.9 amps per leg as I recall

Spoke with a couple eu6500 owners that gave me useful feedback as well

More later - bedtime for me!!

Next up, you know that annoying drop down door that gives you access to the storage under the bed?



Make it a drawer!!


Note the wine box is now full after a trip to Trader Joe's! We leave for our winter adventure Wednesday.

Sporadic leaks may be a symptom of too much pressure in the water system, usually caused by expansion in the hot water heater with no other relief in the closed system. The thermal/pressure valve on the hot water heater ought to relieve this pressure but it will find the weakest point.

The air bubble in the hot water heater should absorb of this pressure, but if it doesn't the air bubble is lost out the thermal/pressure relief valve. We added a water pressure accumulator to take up the excess pressure.

Sometimes that's not enough to keep hot water from escaping the the thermal/pressure relief valve. We noticed this more when we got the newer Airstream with combination electric/propane water heater, although the propane water heater did the same thing. So we turn the water heater off at night or when not used for long periods. That works.

Thumbs up

Winegard G2 sat dish, splitter/switcher, DirectTV receiver.

Here are some pictures of the setup for the BluRay, DirectTV receiver and the splitter/switcher for two TV's. I can watch DirectTV and/or BluRay in living room or in the bedroom at the same time. Excited that this little project is in place and over! . My photos didn't post.

There were two HDMI cables. Three counting the BluRay. One for living room TV. One for bedroom TV. I bought a splitter/switcher. It has two out puts. I plugged in the living room TV into the A out put and the bedroom TV into the B out put. The S/S also has 4 HDMI inputs. I plugged the sat box HDMI from the box into the #1 input in the S/S. I plugged the existing BluRay HDMI into the #2 slot in the S/S. #3 and #4 remain empty for any future needs such as a video game, etc. This S/S has a remote control. It has two main buttons, A and B (for me, A = living room and B=bedroom). Around the A button is buttons 1,2,3,and 4. (1=sat box, 2=BluRay) Same thing for the B (bedroom). So now I can watch sat and or BluRay in either area at the same time. Clear as mud???? ;-))
