RE: '07 Southwind BR TV Removal?

Sounds like a sticky problem.... Look for additional screws through the baseplate in addition to the tape. Can you remove the screws holding the TV to the base?? might make the rest easier if you can. Try a serrated bread knife. keep working with the heat also. Post a picture if possible.

RE: Win 7 Paint, Digital Camera and Carpenter Level

What are you using Paint for??? The photo viewer works well for me. If you want to do panoramas in addition, make sure your camera is level front and back also. If so, adjacent pictures will fit together better.

RE: PD9100 Converter with ChargeWizard

Finally got to install the Charge Wizard. Battery voltage at converter was 12.2 with shore power off. Afterwards, with boost light, 14.4. Will check later to see if it drops as it should. Cold weather is not a good time to be checking battery levels.

RE: Inside a dog food processing plant?

Yes, we have been in a dog food processing plant here in the US, and I am not going to tell you where or how to get in. I am satisfied that there were no problems, and well pleased with the attention and care given to the product./

RE: Any Idea How to Get the Bulb Out of This Light?

On the original Halogen bulbs which were made of quartz-type glass, and got VERY hot. oils from your fingers would cause a smudge which would get hotter that the rest of the bulb. Some times this would cause the bulb to crack. Led bulbs do not ger as hot, so not to worry. They were much brighter than regular bulbs because they did get so much hotter.

RE: How do they do that?

It depends entirely on how your rig is built as to how to install a replacement. In our case, it is just sitting inside the cabinet, on its own provided base(which had to be trimmed to fit. The base is secured to the floor of the cabinet with a couple of wood screws, and the TV is stabilized with a strap around the back. Simple is best. The much lower weight of an LED TV makes mounting a lot easier.

RE: Draining water heater

keeping anode rod in during the winter keeps the spiders out.

RE: Draining water heater

I have always just opened the drain plub on the heater, and let all the water just bubble out. Found out this time that if I open the relief valve also, the tank drains a lot faster. I remove plug with anode, inspect rod, and replace it loosely to keep bugs out.

RE: popping sound when making turns

RE: PD9100 Converter with ChargeWizard

Thanks, guys! Sounds like I did the right thing with this one. Up till now, I have had to watch the water in my batteries closely to keep them full, so I was pretty sure that they were trying to overcharge. If the weather is decent tomorrow, I will go out and install the Charge Wizard. Just for information, I think that I will check voltage at batteries before and after. My converter is under the bed, so I will stick the wizard our where I can see it.

PD9100 Converter with ChargeWizard

Our Gulfstream Soach is equipped with a Progressive Dynamics 9100 Series INTELI-POWER converter, providing 80A of DC current. I am adding a ChargeWizard to it to help regulate the charging voltage applied to the batteries. Has anyone else have any experience with this converter and/or the chargeWizard??

RE: passing signal

NEVER trust signals from another vehicle! Make your own decisions before doing anything. Anything else is a invitation to disaster. However, many drivers are trying to help you by some type of signals. Try to observe these, and act accordingly, especially if they are indicating that they are giving you the right-of-way.

RE: 12v connectors, want 2 set up better system than Cig Lighter

Go to a dealer for truck parts, and get "power Points" rather than "cigarette lighter plugs". They are made better and with larger wiring, especially designed to probide 12v power for whatever. Connect to an good source of power, either coach or chassis, whichever you desire. Use fused and good sized wire(12G) or better.

RE: Grand Canyon reservations

Seems like I saw an article about them changing concessionaire from Xanterra. Hadn't thought about it affecting Trailer Village though. Seems like it was taken over by Delaware North, but I don't really know much about it. Let us know what you find out.
