The traffic is nuts, not just in Pigeon Forge but also in the mountains. Going to Cades Cove yesterday was crazy.

My guess is either 3 cooler nights or a week and a half until the leaves start changing. You might be a week or two before peak when you get here.

We are leaving here on Sunday and heading to Tybee Island, GA. The middle of next week we will go to North Myrtle Beach to rally with an FMCA Chapter we are members of.

Had the park staff plant some colorful trees for your wife 😅

Here in Colorado you can't see the trees through the smoke. Wife and I went up to Granby Colorado a couple of weeks ago and trees were better then expected with the recent wet weather and the cold snap and snow we got a few weeks before that. We probably have the same issue with traffic that you have in the east during this season and people are so impatient. Drives me nuts!

Ok Guys.
We have the front entertainment center on our coach.
How do you turn off the power to the tv and sound bar?
Getting it ready for winter and my only solution was to unplug them.

How about cutting power at the panel box?

We also have that setup on our 35sk. We have never cut the power to them. There both run by remotes. No hard on off switch. If your not plugged in to shore power it shouldn't be a problem. It shouldn't be a problem anyways. At least I've never had a problem of them coming on by themselves.

The problem I have is it will be stored next week at a indoor rv storage facility.
No access to power. Our coach has a solar system with 6 6volt batteries.
I switch to store and even turned off all 110 breakers and the sound bar still illuminates the time and the large tv and blue ray still have power.
Im sure this will drain the batteries over winter.
I did unplug the units as my only recourse.
I think I will remove the negative cable for added assurance.

Ya you difinetly wouldn't want to drain the batteries.
Doesn't your inverter have on off switch? Edk

It is very common for the Inverter to power a couple TVís and / or entertainment center in these coaches.

As EDK said, there should be a remote panel that controls your Inverter so you can turn it off so it does not send power to the TV, fridge, etc.

Unfortunately Thor does not follow the recommended best practices of wiring the Inverter output with an AC sub-panel. If they did, you would be able to just turn a breaker off. One of my winter projects is to add a small sub-panel of my Inverter output.

If the Inverter is powered on, it will try to provide power to that put out circuit once the shore power is unplugged or generator is off.

Your other option is to install a battery disconnect switch to completely remove them and avoid parasitic drain from the CO / Propane detector as well.

From what I see for at this point thats my plan also for next year.
For now I'll disconnect at the battery's for safety.
I have everything off and the steps still work and the auto gen box is still lit up.
Need to sort it out next year.

Have you checked your volume settings in your cameras? I donít have the noise but I did notice two volume settings. I have mine set low, but not low enough to not hear my wife when sheís behind the rig.

turn off the backup camera (rear view mirror) all together. I have the same thing...thought it was my radio buzzing. It was my back up camera. I have also had issues with left turn signal having a 20 second delay before the left camera shows up. Sometimes it works as it should...others a long delay. The delay ONLY happens when the rear view camera is on. When it is off, there is no delay in the left turn camera. I am being told likely loose wire in the harness. But the buzzing definitely for me is coming from the mirror.

Just went through this...after 4 days we drained the house batteries in-door storage - had the slide out and jacks down. We were able to hook up to 110 power and after 24 hours batteries were good to power the control panel. I do believe we left the inverter on...no totally sure. regardless - you need to turn the inverter off OUTSIDE in the storage bay to the right of the steps. There is a button on the inverter that turns the green light off. That is where you need to turn the inverter off...not to be confused with the inverter button in the entry as you enter the coach. I have a bb35-2021. I assume yours would be the same.

My turn signals do the same thing. Sometimes it takes a really long time for them to come on, other times it flickers quickly and may not even come on at all. Once I turn the signal off I can quickly change cameras with zero delay...
I will check all my wires again, as all outside connections are just crimped on and exposed to the moist Florida environment. We shall see.
