Those with front and rear cameras, did you mount the rear view camera in the rear window? And if so, how did you run the cable?

I agree with above. That battery is doing nothing but taking up space and adding weight. Kept as a backup maybe?? May be dead if it hasn’t been charged in a long time.

The tank should never be empty. There should be a COLD level line on the tank. When the coolant heats and pressure builds, some coolant will be forced into the tank. And when it cools and pressure...

My first thought is that you have a bad neutral connection somewhere. Neutral making good contact and all is good. Loss of neutral and voltages on hot legs in the trailer go up or down depending on...

I assume you are talking about one of the Y adapters, 50 to 30 and 20. Can’t see any reason that would be a problem, voltage wise, on the generator. Did you check the voltages at your 50 amp shore...

The check valve is to prevent water from flowing back into the fresh water tank after the pump has built up pressure in the lines.

I never used the air method. But it would seem you should also use the winterize port, after using the fresh water port, to blow air thru the pump and clear water from it. :confused:
