RE: Cooking in a convection/ microwave

All electric ovens are not convection ovens. Electric convection ovens have a blower that circulates the heat. Without the blower it is just an electric oven.

RE: emergency exit windows in motorhomes

I don't think it is a Federal law requiring one. I suspect it is an RIAA requirement though and if your rig has a RIAA tag on it (and I believe Tiffin rigs do or should) You should have an emergency exit.

RE: Auxilliary Propane

I installed a "Stay a While" tee that is intended for that purpose. It is made by Mr Heater and is available in many RV stores and on Amazon. It also has a hose that can be connected to a propane grill with a built in regulator. See HERE Another brand - Extend a Stay by Marshall Gas Controls - was popular but they quit making it for a while. It appears to be on the market again at Amazon. A very similar one is made by Sturgi HERE One advantage of these over a home made one is some built in safety features such as check valves. They install between the RV tank and regulator.

RE: What do you do with your time while full-timing

I "rest" a lot. :B YUP.

RE: Day/Night shade cleaning

My wife laid them out in the shower pretty much like Tinstar did except she used Scrubbing Bubbles as the detergent. After they were rinsed I put them on a picnic table to dry - partially collapsed hoping to preserve the pleats. That worked and they looked much much better.

RE: looking to buy 2006 itasca sunrise....but....

The roof is a sandwich of 1/16 inch fiberglass, 1/8 inch luan plywood, styrofoam, 1/8 inch luan and ceiling covering material.It is all laminated together with contact cement. There are aluminum rails and studs embedded for the frame. It sounds like something hit the roof hard enough to compress the foam. If the compression isn't too severe and the aluminum rail wasn't damaged and if the fiberglass isn't broken through I don't think I would be too concerned about it. Here is across section showing the roof construction at the edge. The white area on the right is styrofoam. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v425/ClayL/Public/WinniebagoRoofCrosssection.jpg

RE: Atwood H20 Heater wont pass water

How you get to the back varies model to model. Some have an access panel, some are visible behind a cabinet door. I would call customer service with your VIN or Winnebago ID number. They may be able to tell you how to see the back of the water heater.

RE: Atwood H20 Heater wont pass water

For winterizing Winnebago typically uses one diverter valve and two check valves - one on the input line and one on the output line. If yours is like that this drawing I made shows how it is set up. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v425/ClayL/Winnebagowaterheaterplumbingdiagram.png

RE: New to Satellite

I had that type of Winegard dish for years before I upgraded it to a Winegard Traveler. I used it with Direct TV. I always used a compass to align the azimuth ring to north (magnetic north according to DirectTV) and used the elevation and azimuth as supplied by the receiver based on the zip code where I was. After setting it up I was usually very close and only had to adjust the dish azimuth slightly to peak the signal. It usually took me 5 minutes or so, start to finish. To get HD from Direct you will need to upgrade to a Winegard Traveler or other brand.

RE: How Level is Level

To put it more simply, if you refrigerator is located along the side wall like mine is then: multiply your RV width across the tires in inches by 0.1045 and multiply your wheelbase in inches by 0.0523 Calculating the inches out of level allowed for the refrigerator requires that you know the wheelbase of your MH (the distance between the front and rear wheels) and the distance side to side between the center of the tires. After that, it's simple trigonometry. In my MH the refrigerator is located along the side wall on the passenger side. Front to back on the fridge is therefore side to side on the MH, so I am allowed to be off level in this direction by 6 degrees. I measured 73 inches across the tires, so multiplying 73 by the sine of 6 degrees (0.1045) gave me an allowable out of level of 7.6 inches. The fridge is allowed to be off level by 3 degrees side to side, which is front to back on the MH. My E450 chassis has a wheelbase of 158 inches, so multiplying 158 by the sine of 3 degrees (0.0523) gives me an allowable out of level of 8.3 inches. Great answer.

RE: Removing th ASK Toolbar?

What are you guys doing? I have never had a program that I installed install anything else. I also have never had a virus or malware.:h If you download and install a Java update there is a small check box up in the text that must be checked to prevent the ASK bar from being installed. It is not really hidden but is easily missed. There is another update ( I don't remember which one) that will install a Mcafee scanner if a box is not checked.

RE: RV types for full timing

In our 10 years of full timing I didn't see very many full timers in a TT. Lack of storage compared to a 5Th wheel or motor home was a problem for the TTs I have looked at.

RE: Questionable Toilet Gasket

Use a wax seal instead of a foam rubber seal. I wouldn't. The manufacturers use the foam seal because of vibration and shock in the RV environment.

RE: DTV SD Receiver Question

You need one numbered H24 or lower. H25 and up will not receive non-SWM tecnology - no menu settings.

RE: Praise for the lowly toilet riser

I have one (riser) in my rig along with a 19 inch tall toilet - Thetford Bravura tall. The total height is 21 inches. Works great. The S&B house we bought and live in now, came with round short toilets. I replaced one with a 17 1/2 inch elongated one. Much better. Would have installed taller ones but could not find any even with a lot of research. I bet they make some taller ones but none of the company sites or Google searches came up with any. At the time I didn't think to look for under the toilet risers and didn't see them anywhere but a Google search now shows at least two. That is what I will use for the toilet in the guest bathroom. HERE is one of them.

RE: 1994 Brave TV Coax re-wire

I think that connection is for an outside TV. The input coax connector on Winnebago's of that era were often in the service/wet bay on the left side of the compartment up and behind a panel. You have to get down and look up to see it. I would never have found the one on my Warrior if a prior owner of it hadn't showed it to me.

RE: Winegard Trav'ler DirecTV Slimline

A friend had a similar problem and it turned out that when his OTA batwing antenna was raised and turned to a direction that cast a signal shadow on the dish it would make it difficult for the dish to find satellites. It was hard to figure out because it only happened in one RV park in AZ. That may not be your issue but it might be a walk outside to check.

RE: flow cell battery

If it is really that efficient and wonderful, I wonder why I have seen nothing about it in any engineering journals?

RE: Did you ground your PD 9200 series converter?

You can download the manual HERE It shows two grounds - a chassis and a battery negative - and warns that they must be two separate wires. My new PD4655 has the same setup as did the old Parallax 7500 I was replacing. I used the same wires that went to the Parralax for the PD4655. They both end up going to the same place but two wires are used. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v425/ClayL/Public/PD9200_zpsa6394003_1.jpg

RE: Firewire on digital camcorder to laptop

Best Buy has a couple of capture devices that will do the job. I bought The Dazzle unit. It comes with Pinnacle software and worked okay the only time I have used it. It cost about $60. There was at least one more brand available at BestBuy - Roxio maybe? - that had a Firewire input but it wasn't clear that it had it and I found out later it did.
