RE: Interesting tank fill problem

Winnebago may have thought you were talking about the leak being around where the fill assembly screws into the tank. My fill connection had a gasket in the area where the hose connected that went bad and had to be replaced after five or six years of use. The leak showed up when I had it filled at an RV park and I bought the gasket from a propane company.

RE: The thread on bidets was closed and ancient

To those that don't see any value in having a bidet. I used to have that opinion myself. But as I got older and skin tags from hemorrhoids along with spinal and neck arthritis limiting movement began to make it difficult to do an adequate of cleaning myself. A bidet makes it much easier and in some cases possible.

RE: white hex head self tapping screws. Found Them

I bought some, stuck them in a piece of cardboard and painted them. Took a while but worked.

RE: DirecTV Acct ONLY for RV?

I don't if you still can but I started my Direct TV account as a full timer in 2003 while in TX - motor home was where we lived. At that time my domicile was NH with only a UPS Store mail forwarding address. I later changed my domicile to SD and now to my house in CO. I bought the dish, receiver and tripod from Radio Shack and as I recall set the account up through them.

RE: Oven temperature too low

I don't know why it doesn't go over 300 degrees. I always had to use an oven thermometer on mine because the dial was so inaccurate but it would go up to at least 400 degrees.

RE: Macrium Reflect. Anyone Using it Any Comments?

It may not be supported but Win 10 still has the system image function. I use it once a month or so on my desktop and my wife's laptop. Both have Win 10 64 bit. I have had to use it once on each to restore Win 10 and all programs, data and settings. It went smoothly both times. It can be found at: Control Panel/File History - System Image in the lower left side corner. You need to make a System Repair Disk/USB flash drive. It is needed to restore the system image. It can also be found using "Settings" but is harder to find and takes a lot more clicks.

RE: Defective Ultra Leather on Flexsteel Furniture

Ultra Leather is not vinyl. It is a polyurethane on a rayon fabric and if it is really Ultra Leather and not a cheaper knock-off is very durable. I reupholstered all of my fabric covered motor home furniture with UltraLeather Plus and after 6 years of full time use it was still in great shape when I sold the motor home. There are a lot of cheap knock-offs on the market and some manufacturers have used them. There have been a lot of complaints about those that did. As I recall we paid about $40 or $50 per yard for the UltraLeather and we used about $1000 worth for two captains chairs, the couch and the dinette cushions.

RE: W 10 Backup Question

I am using the Win 10 "System Image" function to make a clone of the OS and all data, programs and settings. I have had to use it to restore everything once on my computer and the one I made for my wife's laptop once. It went smoothly both times. It is available as an option in Control Panel/File History - the option is on the lower left side "Make System Image Backup". It is available using "Settings" but it takes a lot of clicking to find it - much easier for me with Control Panel.

RE: Weight of Gear

We found that 2800 pounds for two people was not enough. Would like to have had 3500 pounds.

RE: 2 cats 1 golden retriever & litter box

We just purchased a new 2015 Cedar Creek Hathaway 38RD which has all of the bells and whistles but not much open floor space so where do I put the litter box (There is a central vac under the first step so it can't go there) and the food dishes so the dog doesn't get fat off of cat food. There is carpet under the table so do not want to put litter box there and carpet in living room and bedroom. I'm stuck. We're brand new to this so our first trip will be loading up the cats and the dog and heading down to FLorida for the winter. Excited but nervous about the pets travelling. Can't help with the litter box because we had room to put it in the hall in front of the closet. Had to move it to open a couple of drawers but it worked okay for 11 years. Did have to make a couple of Plexiglas side wings with a piece in the front with a hole in it too small for the dogs to get into though. Also had to move it over in front of one of the bedroom closets when the slide was in so Niki cat could use it while we were driving. As far as the cat's food and water goes dish we put those on one end of the credenza counter in the bedroom.

RE: Refilling your LP

"Stay A While" is another brand of external tank Tee. I got the version that has a connection and hose for a grill as well as the external tank. Didn't have to mess with the small bottles after that. I also used a 30 pound external tank which was light enough for me to handle and lasted longer than the 5 gallon 20 pound ones. It holds about 7 gallons as I recall.

RE: Winnebago 29VE vs Jayco Greyhawk 29W , new

SNIP The sales guy said you should align and balance any motorhome when you get it home after its filled up with your normal stuff. I never heard that before. SNIP. It's in the Winnebago manual. I think most manufacturers recommend that for new motor homes.

RE: Somebody educate me on "Nitrogen" in the tires ?

Nitrogen is slightly less weight than normal compressed air therefore the slightly less weight on the tires provides for less rolling resistance resulting in better fuel millage. ;) Glad I saw the smiley way down on the left side before I sent a nastygram. :)

RE: Leveling Blocks???

For me wood was way too heavy and bulky. I had 4 to 5 sets of 10 Lynx blocks. At 8 inches wide they were plenty large enough for my 19.5 inch tires. I have seen them used many times with 22.5 inch tires also. You do have to use a set-up for each dual of course. I would break one from time to time and considered that a cost of travel. Towards the end of my full timing, I got older, grouchier, and much less tolerant of sites that my hydraulic levelers couldn't handle and I didn't need nearly as many sets of Lynx blocks. This is what they look like HERE If you were to store an RV for a month sitting on them for more I would recommend using the "Lynx Caps"

RE: Parallax Converter

When I replaced my 7345 with a Progressive smart charger I kept the 7345, added a 120 volt cord/ plug to it and used it as a 20 amp power supply for my macerator. Easier than running wires 20 feet or so from the battery big enough to handle the 20 amps plus start up surge.

RE: 1990 Warrior and backup cam

Mine was connected so that when the key was on the camera was on. Helped me to see the toad and when I was far enough ahead of an adjacent car to pull into the lane beside me. I much prefer it that way.

RE: Winnebago 29VE vs Jayco Greyhawk 29W , new

Take a look here Winnebago Manuals and Diagrams I don't know if Jayco has that info easily available or not.

RE: Blu-ray/DVD player on RV 12 volts?

Maybe. Depends on the DVD power input circuit. If it designed to take more than 12 volts it should be okay. It costs a little to make the power input tolerant of higher voltages and who knows what they did.
