RE: cable TV hookup

Better to find the problem before starting to just replace a lot of stuff.

RE: cable TV hookup

Yes, but a bad connection is more likely.

RE: tv

I replaced the one on our dash in our 99 Hurricane. I was thinking about doing some type of cabinet like you said. Turned out that installing the new one was easy, and when complete, it looked like a custom install. (which it was). Here is a link to some pictures, if you have difficulty seeing them, let me know. I also had to replace the 27" overhead monster in our current coach. Had to get a couple of neighbors to help me get the 90' monster out. Then had to pay $15 to dump it. Here is the link: Dash tv replacement

RE: Difference in honda generators Big store vs small dealer?

Products are made especially to sel at a discount in the big box stores. Looks the same, sounds the same, but they cut corners somewhere to make it cheaper. And, there are different ones for the different stores, so that you can't match between them.

RE: tv

BTW, the new one will have lots better picture, and will probably receive more stations. (if they are available). Post pictures of what you have, when shopping look at the ones with the narrowest edge around the actual picture. A wide edge is wasted space.

RE: tv

Measure height and width, find one that fits. Be aware that while size may say larger, height will be less that the old TV, so you will have to fill a bit at top or bottom. Search this forum, lots of us have done it.

RE: Looking for Window Part

Have you tried calling Winnebago yet?? Probably your best bet.

RE: Realistic Budget?

Just figure that your expenses as you travel will be at least what you would spend if you were staying at home. Just add fuel, campground costs, and entertainment you expect to use on top. Most of the others are things you would have to do anyway. Depends on your current lifestyle, and what you plan on doing as you travel.

RE: Removing middle TV in 2008 Four Winds Hurricane

Post pictures to start with. If you have already replaced the others, it should not be difficult. We assume you will not be trying to find a tube type??

RE: Video Not Detected on Backup Camera-2015 Winnebago Era

Has this just started? How long have you had the rig?? Sounds like something is connected wrong.

RE: Electrical Problems-Need your help

Everything in most RVs is 110V. Unless you have a European RV, you should NOT have 220-240 volts ANYWHERE! 30 or 50 amp or not. Depending on the wiring, there could be 240 V between the two hot pins on your plug, but nowhere else. There are generally two circuits in a 50A RV. one from each side of the line. Both are 110-120V, usually with two ACs there is one AC on each circuit. You have probably popped a circuit breaker somewhere. Mine has two breakers on the generator, plus two on the breaker panel inside. At the campground pedestal, many older systems just have one big 120v line to the pedestal, and it is split to both sides of the plug.

RE: Refigerator tempts

Try using a small fan to blow into the outside vents to improve circulation through the cooling coils. If it helps, then consider adding fans designed for that purpose. With outside temps that high, there is just not as much cooling available. However, I do think that yours is higher than I would be comfortable with. Might be a good idea to brace your pocketbook. With ours parked at that temperature, especially with full sun on that side. we have seen out have to work hard to maintain inside temps in the low 40's.

RE: Overall height?

If you are the least bit unsure, get a long board across the highest point, and measure from there to the ground on both sides. Then add 6 inches. Make sure you have the tip of your radio antenna at least higher than the highest point. Once you know the height, write it on a sticker, and post it on your dashboard, and leave it there!

RE: Charleston, SC where to stay, what to do?

The KOA in Mt. Pleasant is nice. We enjoyed the Aquarium, the beaches, the fire engine museum, the history, the downtown historic areas, and some very very good restaurants. The local shrimp are big, fat, and delicious. The plantation tours are interesting and educational. I, personally, would skip Ft. Sumter, its just an expensive boat ride, and hour visit, and a boring boat ride back. One of the harbor tours works well instead. Ft. Moultrie, on the other hand, actually has a lot more history, is easy to drive to, and more to see. It defended this country in many more ways that ever happened at Sumter, and you cam see and learn much more about American history there. There is another of the wonderful resturants close also.

RE: Cash price on fuel

I have used a Walmart Credit card for several years, because of the .05 discount. Now that they have discontinued that, I just look for the best price, and whether I can get in & out easily. I used a BP card before Walmart, for the same reason, and closed that card for the same reason. Just remember that if you carry over the balance, the interest will eat up a lot more than your discount.

RE: How we made a fabric headboard with pockets

Yes, we have a window at the head of the bed, so a headboard could not go too high. We just used a piece of masonite board, and drew a shape that we liked. Height was measured from just below mattress surface to bottom edge of window. Covered it with fabric, did frilly puff cushion border around top and down sides. Attached to wall with velcro and screws.

RE: Black water tank flush

There should be a backflow preventer in the line to the flusher. It may be built in to the flusher, or installed in the line. If it is factory installed, there should be one. your water line should also have a vacuum breaker at the faucet. Most campgrounds have them installed on the faucet. I have a splitter valve on the intake side of my water hose that attached to the campground faucet, and I just use that to connect to the flusher( with bfp installed).

RE: Indoor HD TV antenna

Analog and digital on the same frequency are the same. However, the older tv and radio stations were on lower freequencies than the newer UHF stations now. Some of the newer antennas, (Sensar VI) are more receptive to the newer wavelengths. none (or very few) of the old analog channels are on the air now, so it doesn't make any difference.

RE: How long you say

Depends on the camping site. If you can hang over the end of the site, or if there is a wall or tree at the back of the site. At one recent campsite, the length was listed as 30'. Our 30' class A fit very well, with room for the toad. Just backed in far enough that the jack pads were on the prepared site, and let the tail hang out.
