Never have. Our grandsons have hooked up their X-Box to it twice and played till the wee hours with a fire going. They had headphones so no problem with noise.

NONE, to my knowledge, use 120V for operating the slides, all use battery power. The point for having 120V plugged in is to power the converter and thus have 12V in top shape for operating the slides.
My Cameo will work either way

Newcomers' Corner / Re: Is there anything I need to know about these hubs?

Looks like you can replace the tires for around $75 each, so that's relatively cheap in the short run.

How far can you go on the currents ones? It's a crap shoot. Might make it a half mile or might make it hundreds of miles. No way to predict.

The US Gear Unified Tow Brake has been out of production for several years, so not really a contender.

In addition to a RV Forum, I do hope you have joined a boat forum as well.  You certainly have an adventures mindset, we around here love that.  If it were me, I'd get that boat floating in some water, then seek professional guidance as into your best options with that trailer. Surely you can get that trailer as sits to launch the boat. Dragging around and working on an empty trailer seems to make the most sense.

Do you pay extra for that?

I went into a Verizon store about a year ago and they offered me spam blocking...for $10 a month and then worked me over trying to sell me a new phone.

Not that I know of.  Doesn't really block it, just says that instead of the caller's name.  I am paying for a new phone, but I knew that up front.

If you have the training and know how to use it
US Gear Unified Brake Decelerator give you the MOST control over the towed's brakes.  Nearly the same as a SEMI driver has over his trailer.   If you don't know how to use those features.. Well.  Learn. (some of them are easy)

In some cases M&G i think is the company that makes an air powered system where NOTHIGN and I mean NOTHING is inside the car's cockpit.  It's all under the hood. .So all you do is plug in the air line and Tow.

Several other systems are "like" that but electric/electronic.

Now if you have a "Fleet" of towed's there are "Box in the driver's seat" systems. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THEM unless you have a fleet and change towed's every trip.

WHY  Well they claim "No installation" (meaning no screws or bolts) but the fact is you have to "install" them every tow. and stow them when not towing as they are in the way driving the towed (The systems above are all "Self stowing" for the most part).

and every "install" is a chance to "opps" as the installer did with my US gear system (Cost me a major brake job)

And it's too tempting to "Oh the heck with it, I'm only going a few miles" and later.. Regret that decision.

but the fully installed, if properly installed. talkes less than 10 seconds to hook ',em up. in some cases it's the same plug as the tow light.

Tech Talk / Re: Magnum Inverter 2800 watts
« Last post by John From Detroit on January 23, 2021, 04:29:27 PM »
Don't have a magnum but on my 2nd Xantrex
the first (prosine 2.0) had some switches on the remote. One turned the remote kind of off (not the inverter just the display) an "Error" would over ride that. it was also used to set PROGRAM mode.
the other two were on/off. Inerter OFF/auto.  Charger Off/auto.

With shore power that passed muster it charged and passed
Without shore power or if shore power DID not pass muster (voltage most likely) it sucked power out of the batteries to power the loads (inverted) if both switches were "enabled".

The new one well instead of switches I go through a boat load of menus but same effect.
I an set i to disabled (no power passes) or to auto-charge/ivert depending on shore power.

I have seen several other makes. MOSt have the same options. though the programmability of the Xantrex may be missing, the ability to disable one or the other mode is there.

If stored for more than a night. By all means turn OFF to preserve battery.

NOTE... Some inverters (Like the Posine 2.0) the switches on the remote can disable the inerter or charger or both. BUT THEY DO NOT TURN IT OFF.. The big switch on the inverter itself. or an added remote.. They turned it OFF as in no power flowed..

11% total..>>>Dan

I bought a TPMS today.  Price changed when I whipped out the nice crisp $100 bills instead of the card.  About 11%, I guess.  I'm fine with it, he wrote me a receipt if there's A PROBLEM.
