RE: Recycled Asphalt/ New pad for parking

Very surprised about the asphalt comments. Maybe the person that put it in for me was just more experienced. He dug down almost a foot, then back filled with some sort of rock, then a good layer of the recycled asphalt. It has remained solid, level, mostly weed free for three years. I would not just use asphalt alone. It needs a good base from what I saw. No tracking of oil or grease. I would do it again.

RE: Killer rain 1, Satellite 0

Sheesh. We are native Northern Californians. 10-15 inches of rain anually, rarely caused us rain fade. Here in Central Florida it can rain 8 inches in a day. We get plenty of rain fades. I keep local channels piped in for those times. I wish it was not raining so much there. We are from Yuba City and the surrounding counties are in serious condition.

RE: Fridge in slide-out

Tinner, the issue is the vent is on the face of the slide versus out the top. The natural flow of hot air is blocked. I have had my fans fail and the temps go up quite a bit. I added two more fans at the base of the refer coils since we camp in really hot weather.

RE: 120 volt outlets not working, need help!

The devices you describe leads me to the Inverter/Charger. It is very common for breakers to trip right on the converter itself. 110 volts passes through under normal conditions. The refer socket that was dead is probably for an ice maker section of it. The entertainment stuff would naturally be on the converter/inverter path.

RE: ANY have comments on SAFE T Plus Steering control

Took mine off. Tired of the resistance when driving. It does not solve poor handling. Track bars, Watts links, and getting the slop out of steering boxes really solves the poor handling. For example, many of us Monaco line owners have changed our steering boxes from Sheppard models to TRW. The TRW has an adjustment that will take virtually all of the steering play out.

RE: Windows 10 and Streets and Trips

I decided to give my gps puck a go on my new computer and it locks the computer up. Long story short, it now does not work on any of my win 10 machines. Apparently the original mfgr of the chip had a lot of fakes out there and did something to the drivers rendering them inop in win 10 etc. Long story short, I gave up after hours of research and experimenting. I will be ordering a new gps puck.

RE: Need a program to look for duplicate folders and files

It runs fine on my W10 machine.

RE: Need a program to look for duplicate folders and files

Thanks for the tips. I will check it out and see if it runs on 10. I like to keep backups on a couple of computers and on a thumb drive as an additional safe backup. I use a very simple program for that called Synch Toy. Been using it for years.

RE: 3.0 USB question

Bottom left search box. Type "device drivers", look at the page of hardware on your open page. Scroll down to the USB device and right click. The pop up will show a couple of options to try. One is to search for new hardware but the first one should be to update your drivers. That alone may do the trick. Be sure to do a reboot after that.

RE: Windows 10 and Streets and Trips

If you cannot get it to run, turn off your protection and firewall for the time you need to load it. If you still have problems. Click the word Compatability in the lower left part of your start screen. Learn how to run S&T install in that mode.

It does work on 10. I have it on two computers.

RE: Trucker WE Boost

Check these out Check these amps out. I have one in my 40 ft RV and it covers end to end. I did extensive driving with mine this Summer and it worked very well.

RE: Refrigerator and/or sink and/or range in slide?

Eight years and no problems except fan failure once. Easy fix. And they DO NOT draw much current. There are propane powered buses with propane lines. Present day plastic plumbing is robust and we have not had one issue. If you like the floor plan, and the wife really likes it, buy it.

RE: this is wierd! black tank senor problem

Find the sensors and make sure the red one has not fallen off. The sensors are not interchangeable according to the tech I talked to. You may need a hose designed for cleaning the tanks. The in tank sprayers clog often on some models.

RE: Any Snowbirds in Polk County, FL?

That is very close to me. We had one almost that big that cruised by our dock every day.

RE: this is wierd! black tank senor problem

"I also found that a cup of liquid Dawn left sitting in the tank as long as possible seems to keep it clean," If you can take a drive it will help.

RE: this is wierd! black tank senor problem

If it is possible to get to the area where the sensors are you may be able to add an in tank sprayer. Just put a quick disconnect on a short piece of hose so you can switch between tank cleaners. For some reason they installed my sprayer in the opposite end which does fine for cleaning the bottom of the tank but the spray does not clean the sensor area. Even with that ours can act up like yours so I actually installed a deck access plate and can use my pressure washer. I also found that a cup of liquid Dawn left sitting in the tank as long as possible seems to keep it clean, We are full time and do not use any chemicals. Just plenty of water.

RE: Vibrating 5er when doing laundry

I placed some anti slip material on the top, added a sheet of 1/2 inch plywood that reaches each side of the cabinet it sits in, and then installed a wood rail on the left but a tiny bit low so the pressure actually raised the right side of the top cover a tiny bit. Then I installed the right rail while pressing down on the cover. This stabilized the machine. It can still shake a bit but not nearly as much.

Thanks Doug. I appreciate the clarification.
