RE: And I thought this would be easy!

DD has the same truck. Nice ride, and probably good for smaller trailers especially when fully loaded. But as your learning it is probably not suitable for large trailers or heavy loads.

RE: SF-1000 Signal Meter

Have you gone thru receiver setup? I assume you have, but..... Does the setup require a B band converter? I have had a couple of then die on me and kill my picture.

RE: SF-1000 Signal Meter

You can buy those cheap things for less than 20 dollars all over the place. I probably have three of them around somewhere. Sadly everything is in storage or I would give you one of them. They are nothing more than a beeper that sounds off when you receive a sat signal. You never know what sat you are getting a signal from using those things. With the Birdog you tell it what sat you want and it will only lock onto that one and rejects all others. Birdog is what DirecTV techs use to setup all new installs. You can find used ones on ebay for around 75 dollars. But if you go that way be very careful, there are some that install their own funky battery and say new battery.

RE: SF-1000 Signal Meter

Nope I use a Birdog. Has way more functions than I know how to use.

RE: Questions before I start removing the carpet

Thanks, donn0128! I love the part about the installer getting paid by the number of staples he uses! What did you replace your carpet with? Still living with carpet. I don't mind cleaning it a few time a year. One of these days I might have to tear the old out and replace it, but binding around the front of the living room slide is going to cost me a bundle, so I will enjoy what I have for as long as I can. Did re-carpet a Holiday Rambler trailer a few years back. Took two of us two full days to get it done with all the cutting and fitting. And that was pre-slide out days.

RE: Wiring up the Van

Before you spend a lot of time running wires, look under the back of the van for a trailer wiring harness. If all else fails go shopping you can find basic plug and play adapters specific to your vehicle. As for brake wire, 12 or 14 gage wire is more than suitable. Factory is I believe 14 gage wire.

RE: Questions before I start removing the carpet

Typically there is a layer of vinyl flooring laid down first. Then it there is carpet over part of the area. Then base cabinets are installed right over everything. Carpet is generally laid by somebody with an air stapler who gets paid by the number of staples he uses per day. There will be literally thousands of staples everywhere. A pair of side cutters, a 3 inch wide putty knife, a good razor knife, and a straight blade screwdriver and hammer should be all you will need. Don't forget your knee pads. Use the putty knife to slide across the entire floor and the screwdriver and side cutters to pull all staples found.

RE: Compressors Again!

Check sears. But for that small look at a quality 12volt compressor. It might do you just fine. Valair and master force are two well rated units

RE: 5th Propane 2-stage Regulator

On demand water heaters are very suseptible to water2 pressure fluctuations. I think you may be throwing band aids at a problem that has little to do with gas

RE: 3rd Party inspections. Sellers invovlement?

Think of the sale in terms of a home sale. It is the buyers responsability to get the inspections done not yours. Tell them to hire a mobile tech to come to where thr rv is parked for an inspection. Once money is changed hands and they have ownership it is up to them to get the training on how it works. Personally i would have no qualms going thru the rv with them and giving them a few hours of training after the sale is completed.

RE: Class C purchasing decision...

Geeze thats your only disagreement? My wife once nixed a purchase because there was no place for the garbage can. Hoestly, the difference is personal preference. Might i suggest you go out and play house for a half hiur or so in each model. Then pick the one your most comfortable actuslly living in. Little things lime turning your head to watch TV might be OK for one evening a week, but doing so for 7 nights in a row can be a real pain. Get my point?

RE: looking for my first camper

Find a decent used TT anywhere from 18 to about 24 feet long and you should be OK as long as you dont load the truck bed full of fire wood motorcycles or something else that can over load your truck to begin with.

RE: Power to MH

Have a 50 amp RV plug installed. Hooking to your 220volt welder plug will guarantee you will be spending thousands to fix all the burned up equipment in your motor home.
