    LarandSus :
    A couple of generator questions. We have never dry camped so we have no idea how long we could expect to use our generator. We have a 38' ventana LE diesel Pusher with an 8000w generator. If were to run one A/C and a few lights, does anyone have an idea o...  more

      Dave and Terry Clayton Normally you don't run your A/C or any high current devices off battery via inverter.  A 15 amp AC load is 120 amp DC load at 12 volts.  I have a Bay Star with the four batteries installed by Newmar. I have roughly 240 total amp-hours but only 1...  more

        LarandSus It's a big help to know that we shouldn't run completely out of fuel.

    • LarandSus
      Rock Clemons Dave is spot on. The system will not allow generator fuel flow below a preset level of diesel in fuel tank.

      woodywood update, it was the fuse.  even though the fuse was blown a small amount of voltage still is present.  the light on the plug was on but it was just a trickle of power.

      Robert & Tana W I know it sounds strange but, turn on the radio and see if you have power before you try more difficult options.

      Bill Joyce (and Diane Melde) We once had the wires fall off the back of a 12 volt socket.  Once we got the spot open it was easy to fix.
