RE: What are you reading?

Concerning the W.E.B. Griffin books. Back many years ago when I first started reading them, when reading them in print, I would tend to skin over sone of the longer family descriptions and connection that were a hallmark of his books (at that time). I do tend to read very fast, and there was just not enough there to really catch and hold my attention. years later, when I had a long commute in boring traffic every day, I started listening to them on tapes and then CDs. As with other books, I found that I really enjoyed listening to those parts, and got a lot more from the overall book by having heard those parts without skimming over them. So far, I think I have read or listened to all of his and his sons books. Can't do many audio books now that I am not driving as much. Unless I am doing something else while I listen, I tend to fall asleep and the stupid player just keeps going.

RE: What are you reading?

love all the Stephanie Plum mysteries! But, it does seem that the later ones are not as good as the older ones. Several of the good writers seem to get pushed by publishers to write more faster so they can sell more. Many of what were really good authors seem to be going more toward quantity rather than quality. Of course, that my be a lot of my thoughts, does anyone else think along these lines?? another thing are the number of books being written and published under a known and/or retired author's name, and using the original characters and reputation. What do you think of that practice?? Most of these that I have read leave a lot to be desired.

RE: Dogs rideing in RV

To help our dogs while traveling, we put their soft crates up on the bed in the back. They always rode in their crates, whether in the cars, or in the motorhome. They did not to like riding out where they had to always were trying to keep their balance during travel. In their crates, they could just curl up in a familiar location, and usually sleep. It has always seemed cruel to us to let animals ride loose, and have a lot more possibility of injury to themselves.

RE: winter road south

Probably still early to plan. The weather here was weird last year, so at this time, its anybodys guess. For me, I would like to say come across Tennessee on I-40, then take the Trace down to Natchez. Usually it would be no problem. This year, who knows?? Keep your options open.

RE: Winegard Rayzar Antenna

Antenna Web.com, AntennaPoint.com, among others. And using the Sensar Pro Signal Strength meter, you can zero in on the best signal strength, then amplify it. We can do up top 65 miles in flat country.

RE: I wanna watch TV!

I installed the Sensar pro signal meter in place of my old antenna switch. I can select whatever channel I want to set the antenna for, and as I rotate, it tells me where the greatest signal FOR THAT CHANNEL is.

RE: Mixing oil types (5w-20 mixed with 10w-30)

Better to put it in and not know than no run it low. Unless the cans say so, in most cases all engine oils mix with no problem. Of course, my answer will probably generate ten pages of both do's and don'ts, so be prepared. only thing, if your oil in it now has some fantastic type of miracle magic in it. adding something different might dilute the magic, especially if you believe all the advertising hype. I don't like to mis regular and synthetic oils, but both do the same job, and are designed to be compatiable.

RE: How cold can I go?

If you have park power, put clamp lights with 60 watt bulbs in your wet bins. At 0 degrees, with the bins closed, ours held 50 degrees well. I purchased two cheap remote thermometers, one for each bin, and kept an eye on them. Couldn't find ones with more than one outside sensor. Make sure the bulbs are not touching anything, and point the reflectors toward the wet stuff. Still a good idea to run the furnace a bit to move a bit more warm air.

RE: Does Using SmartPhone as Hotspot Ruin Battery?

About the biggest reason for using a hotspot rather than your phone is that if you carry your phone with you, DW doesn't have any wifi. And that can be BAD!! AS we both have tablets now, next time I have to change plans and/or phones, we are going dumb phones and voice only. Use the mi-fi for data, and only pay for the months that we need it. At home, we have very good cable internet.

RE: 8-Year Old Laptop Is This Brand Of RAM OK?

What type of stuff do you use it for?? That makes a lot of difference in what you need.

RE: Multicolor LED conversion?

With the multicolored LED strips, all the LEDS change color, so they are not actually multi-colored, but Variable-colored. The three colors are red. blue, and green, which are the same as used on your TV screen. White is all three together, and does vary a bit from what is called pure white.

RE: RV Antifreeze or Regular Antifreeze

Not only is regular antifreeze very toxic, it is also attractive to animals, especially domestic pets. I do not know any numbers but we hear about pets killed from drinking antifreeze every year.

RE: Multicolor LED conversion?

Yes, I have interconnected sections, but not in the manner you suggest. The multicolored strips use a 4-wire circuit, so the factory wiring will not work. The required wire is available, as are the connectors which snap onto the wire and the strips. So Yes it is possible, but not with the factory wiring. You may be able to snake the new wiring in place using the factory wires to pull it with, depending on how it is run. Should work, and as you can fine tune the color, you may be able to find a color that works for you. one work of caution, the cheaper strips tend to lose a color section occasionally. Using them inside should be better . Don't buy the cheapest ones. The tend to have some failures included.

RE: I wanna watch TV!

Antennapoint will show you what OTA stations should be available. depending on your location, 30-50 miles should be possible.

RE: Age to start driving 24' class C

Might be a good idea to check with your insurance company. Your policy might have restrictions, or they might need to be listed as additional drivers. Responsible, trained kids are generally better drivers. Better reflexes, better driving skills, but less actual experience. If you are comfortable riding with them, its your choice.

RE: RG6 Connectors

Look at the cable. there may be marking on the outside that tells what type of cable it is. Find the proper connector for that type wire.

RE: I wanna watch TV!

Try turning it on and see if it works.
Johno02 11/24/15 04:34pm Technology Corner

Thanks a lot for letting us know what the problem is. And sure hope you success in getting it fixed right, and without excessive cost. Seems like a propane dealer might be a good choice.
