This is a must-have for your RV because one day your RV engine battery will die from aux use when your parked without power, and you cannot start your RV. This will allow you to electronically jump your battery and stay inside the cab. You who are NOT DIY’ers, have someone do it for you and use this as a guide.
Also, there is a solution for your Jensen JRV212T that has an unresponsive touch screen.
Last,   I ran audio outputs from the main TV to the Jensen JRV212T or the radio so you can hear the TV much clearer.

Your probably frustrated because your touch screen is slowly going bad and your forced to buy either another used one and as of this post, I do not know anyone who is refurbishing them, and the screen is 90% of the issue. If you find one, you will find one for $400-700 plus install if your not a DIY’er.

You are stuck with this because you need a 3 camera system and Don’t fall for the Jensen replacement that makes you switch the cameras manually, which is the last thing you want when driving your RV.

This is a pretty nice basic unit, and it is worth trying this considering this.
All you need to do is buy a 50 cent stylus or one that some gave you sitting on the bottom of your kitchen junk or catch-all drawer. Hang it off the Radio and your good to go.

You will love this solution as it will save you time and money and you will take back the control you lost after having spent so much for a fairly new RV.

The 24.1 Thor RV will eventually need a replacement of the main engine battery and the stair auxiliary deep-cycle batteries.

For you Do-it-Yourselfers, this is a good video that will give you just a little

Most average RV’s are not made for the average person to service. Remember, any job that most would think will take double the time on an RV.

I guess if you can find a generator that is a good price, you are bound to have some issues when you get it or in the future. I read all about reviews about the $300-450 800-1200watt mini 4 cycle generators and I thought I would give it a try.

There are lots of people who do not value their time or just feel it is part of getting a good deal but I am not one to want to do that.

We needed a new very small generator to put out less than 3 amps for 3-5 hrs 1 or 2 times a week and after my online experience and reading many many reviews, I am sticking to the Honda Suitecase generators. They are double of most, but the come working out of the box and will work many many hours now and into the future.

Personal experience –

IG800W craping out out of the box. I am a tech, and setting up a new generator is a no brainer.
I as so disappointed to see this. It was such a tight unit and looks just like a Generac knockoff but even the Generac has its issues. Looks like I gotta buy a Honda at 2 times the cost but with 10 times the reliability.

Based on what other YouTube reviews I feel bad for the Lady from Earthquake as she is just answering the phones and has to ask everyone questions and she refers to the manual just like in this video. Customer Service at Artisam needs help. She is not given any support that can help her with her job. E

So. many are buying guns, not realizing that they have to buy a box or a lock for it before they leave the store. Luckily, I knew that but I did buy a Speed Vault made by GunVault Model SV 500.

This is my rant about this product and how the company is reflected in it.

I bought the SV 500 and was amazed at how poorly written the user manual was. I deal with foreign written instruction manuals along with being a do-it-yourselfer your and you do not show enough pictures or describe how to mount the bottom thumbscrews.
I am amazed and certain that you get multiple calls ask how you are to put the holder and pivot bracket on, before you close it, 1/2 way open, or what. No picture, not real discussion, which it is the most moving part in your kit.
The other issue is how vague the pointing out of the learn and mute button is, not to mention a poor description of how to program the unit. It oozes of someone writing some basic information in English and a 3rd world country trying to translate it in a user manual…
If you do not get lots of calls, they probably figured it out after a frustrating time because most gun owners tend to be mechanically inclined, but that does not help how poorly written the manual is written.

I wrote the company and lets see what they have to say.

Class A Ratings

A fire extinguisher rated for class A fires is intended for use on fires involving Ordinary Combustibles such as wood, paper, cloth or plastics. Class A extinguishers are rated from 1 – A through 40 – A. The number in front of the A represents an amount of water or, if another extinguishing agent is used, how much fire that extinguishing agent will put out as compared to the rated amount of water. A Class 1 – A water extinguisher contains 1 1/4 gallons of water; a Class 2 – A extinguisher contains 2 1/2 gallons of water, or twice the 1 – A capacity.

Class B Ratings

A fire extinguisher rated for class B fires is intended for use on fires involving Flammable and Combustible Liquids and Gases such as gasoline, oil, lacquer, paint, mineral spirits and alcohol. Class B extinguishers are rated from 1 – B through 640 – B. The rating is based on the approximate square foot area of a flammable liquid fire that a non-expert operator can extinguish. The non-expert operator is expected to be able to extinguish 1 square foot of fire for each numerical rating or value.

Class C Ratings

A Class C fire is essentially a Class A or B fire where the fuel involved is energized with electricity. A Class C rating confirms that the extinguishing agent will not conduct electricity. The Class C rating is assigned in addition to the rating for Class A and/or Class B fire extinguishers.

Class D Ratings

A fire extinguisher rated for class D fires is intended for use on fires involving Combustible Metals such as aluminum, magnesium, titanium, zirconium, sodium and potassium. A Class D fire extinguisher is rarely needed outside of the industrial or professional firefighting setting.

To put all of this information together, a fire extinguisher with a rating of 2 – A, 10 – BC should extinguish the same amount of fire as a 2 1/2 gallon water extinguisher or extinguish a liquid fire that is 10 square feet in size and the extinguishing agent will not conduct electricity.
