RE: 1 night off of 75 Tampa area?

Tampa Fl? Lazy Daze has a very nice campground and you can get foot on the property.

RE: Nevada?

Virginia City. The rv park overlooks the old cemetery and is worth an hour or two of wandering around in. The town is a historic Silver Mine town. The last time we were there we rode a stage coach. Our grandson got to ride shotgun. They took the horses on a full gallop for a short time and the adventure was worth every penny. The grandkids still get a smile when I mention it. There are mines and buildings galore to explore. A couple of days is needed.

RE: Silverado Whining above 40 mph (UPDATE)

Have you changed the rear end oil recently? The wrong oil caused a real whine on one of my vehicles.

RE: Battery hydrometer testing questions...

Buy a pack of cheap aprons and use those when messing with dirty things and acid. Remember your shop teacher always wore an apron of some sort as did my chemistry teacher. Eye protection for sure. Just rinse the tops of the batteries off after you are done testing. Do rinse the hydrometer well or the hose will rot quickly.

RE: Plan to visit Epcot. Any suggestions?

Should we purchase tickets online before going there or that morning when we arrive. Thinking of going Tuesday morning. Any idea of when parking is open? We are camping west of Orlando. We do not have a printer available but have an iPhone. Buy them ahead of time so you don't waste precious park time in line for tickets. You can also book a fast pass for that day ahead of time. Do check it out. It is not a complicated thing. If you want to travel between parks you can go to the main parking at the Transportation center and take a bus or monorail to all of the places. I highly recommend a scooter rental for anyone that cannot go miles on foot. You can take turns using one and the scooter can haul your stuff instead of carrying it. For those with kids, a double stroller is really helpful to carry all your treasures, and your kids too when they poop out. Keep them fed and watered.

RE: golf cart

Are you going to use it as a lighter or as a charging socket. How critical is it to really accomplish this? There are dc to dc converters that can accomplish it. Or, you could tap the second battery inline thus getting 16 volts and use an inexpensive regulator to get to the 12 volts you want.

RE: battery not charging from shore power

You have it narrowed down. You now need to find the converter to see if it is Getting 110 volts so it can then convert to the 12 volts. You may have a 110 volt circuit breaker or GFCI breaker tripped.

RE: Diesal filling

I had an rv that was typically thrown together and the fill nozzle hose was too long so they crammed it onto the inlet pipe anyway. It thus had a serious kink in it. Cutting a bit off the end and reinstalling it solved that issue.

RE: SR 299 in N Cali

This question comes up frequently so I saved this. Just reverse the route when going West to east. Take Highway 20 West out of Williams. 37.1 miles. Williams is at I5 and Highway 20. Watch for Highway 53 as you drop down a hill after a fairly long climb. Easy climb and multiple lanes. Turn what would be South onto 53. You will go about 8 miles. Look for the sign to Highway 29 which leads to Kelseyville. This is a nice road and will become freeway in a few miles. Eventually you are back to two lane for a short distance and will come to a stop sign. You are back to Highway 20 again. This leg is about 30 miles. Turn left and enjoy the beautiful drive right to 101 This route will bypass the two lane twisting and winding on the North side of Clear lake. If you want a good view of the lake go ahead and stay on 20 all the way to 101. I'm a definite no on the 299 route. Forty footer and a toad. No thanks.

RE: Can a dual band router send 2.4Ghz/ 5Ghz at the same time?

As an example my laptop is 2.5 ghz.You overclock that? I was speaking about the frequency band versus the speed of the computer. Can get confusing.

RE: Can a dual band router send 2.4Ghz/ 5Ghz at the same time?

Just because your set the router up to broadcast on 5ghz does not mean your laptop or other devices are compatible. As an example my laptop is 2.5 ghz. To have it SEE the 5ghz router I have to use a separate thumb drive device with the proper receiver. And yes, they can simulcast both signals.

RE: Directv emergency

I was going to suggest buying the AM21 box to go with your satellite box. The box takes over the air tv and treats it like it is satellite. It can be recorded, paused, rewound etc. No missing those terrific plays or calls. The price has gone through the roof. I think I paid $50 for mine.

RE: Trace RC7 inverter OVERTEMP error in FREEZING weather

Find the manual to check the error code. It may not want to charge a "frozen battery". It may just think they are frozen. Warm the sensor up with your hands and see if the error goes away. The noisy fan is probably telling you the unit is not getting proper cooling. Good time to get the batteries charged with a portable charger. Remove the negative leads and then remove the inverter/charger. Get it fixed. Leave the negatives of the batteries offline.

RE: Disney World

Check the KOA in Kissimee. Keep trying at the Fort.

RE: Black Tank Leak

Amazing goop plumbing or marine type will stick to just about anything.

RE: DC switch for wall sconce

Cmon my fellow tech nerds. Simple question, simple answer for the OP. This is not a technical forum. If the switch fits, give it a try. You are in no danger. After 40 years or training electronic techs it is still impossible to get two of them to agree on the right way to install a connector.

RE: Electrical Problem

Since the aux start does not work it is often best to fix what is obviously broken and other symptoms go away. You need to find the aux start relay and post some pictures. It could be as simple as a blown fuse so use a test light to check each side of every fuse you can find.

RE: DC switch for wall sconce

Find a switch that fits and install it. DC/AC is not important in this application. 40 yrs in the 12 volt world. Owning an electronic service business. You can probably find a switch on Amazon. If you post a picture it would really help but you can find switches at Radio Shack and even Lowes for example.

RE: RV roof cable problems

If it makes you feel better, yes. If you used decent coax you should not have any issues for many years to come. Think of the billions of feet of coax living in the outdoors right now. I do know how hot these roofs can get so painting them white would definitely keep them cooler.

RE: Electrical Problem

Are you the original owner? Someone may have done some modifications. This is reverse of how it should work. When the voltage is low the batteries should be isolated from each other. Posting a few pictures would help.
