RE: I may have fried my Jack Antenna Please help

It is almost impossible to see the little red light during the day. Disconnect the connector on the antenna and measure the voltage there. Mine quit working the other day. Seems the connector on the antenna was a tad loose.

RE: space containment

My wife throws pillows in some of the cabinets. Spring loaded rods in others. Anti skid material in all of the cabinets as well as between pots and pans,

RE: Dometic Fridge not cooling well

UPDATE::: After running for several days with no change in temp, yesterday morning the freezer was at 0 and the fridge at 30. No idea what changed. I wonder if there was a "bubble" in the coolant that suddenly cleared. Whatever it was all is well now and that's what counts. Could easily be an intermittent fan. I will ask again. Does your refer have a top vent or two side vents? One normal one at the base and one at the upper edge of the refer.

RE: Help with DP for Full Timing

Many of the Monacos single axel are wandering beasts. I know, I have one that has been tamed. Be sure to test drive at highway speeds. Nice RV, it was just a beast to drive. Some earlier models had trailing arm issues. You should be able to get an excellent RV for the budget. If you keep the price down you will have plenty to trick the new unit out to your likings. The 400 ISL and larger are excellent choices in engines. Cummins that is. Not familiar with others. Ditto on the IRV@.com site. There are mfgr specific areas so you can really drill down and get responses from owners of the rv you like when you have it narrowed down.

RE: TPMS Alert: Tire Pressure Too High?

I forget the tolerance mine have but yes mine too monitor for high pressure. I think it is about 10 lbs. I actually had to calibrate mine when installed.

RE: Dometic Fridge not cooling well

Is this in a slide out? I am wondering if you have the side vented setup. If so, listen for the fan or fans that should be running when it getting hot in that area. I had to look downward inside the top/side opening that is and found my fans were not running. The other issue could be a cracked drip tube. What is your drip tube setup?

RE: Overheating

Ditto on the tip about putting the tranny in neutral when stopped for a time. I found this when waiting for an accident to clear. My radiator is pristine and have a new thermostat as well as a freshly flushed radiator.

RE: Does it matter which Verizon phone I get?

If you want even better performance add a Wilson Sleek to the mix and your chances of coverage will improve greatly. These phones have poor antennas as compared to times past. More towers allow much smaller foot prints so big antennas are not needed most of the time. Nothing helps more than a good outside antenna. The pay as you go phone is a good option. I used one on AT&T for a few years. Verizon has great coverage but is not available all over the West when you get into the coastal range for example.

RE: Now why didn't I think of that?

I'm not sure they are saying greaseless. They are removing the inner band that hold the bearings in place and cutting a groove/slot in the outer sleeve. Just a small race to hold the ball bearing from moving too far too fast when the bearing turns. They claim a 10 to 1 reduction in resistance. The demo was very interesting.

RE: What is this valve for?

Might be an auxiliary water fill point. While boon docking I used to carry extra water or bring water back and they might have had something setup to pump water or even gravity feed.

RE: Generator on for Ac while traveling

Running the generator is just fine. It will shut down when the fuel tank drops to 1/3 to 1/4 of a tank of fuel so don't panic if it shuts down and blinks the light on the panel.

Mine had the corner lens fail quickly too. The light still works.

RE: Onan Diesel Generator problem

Buy a long piece of hose and drop it into the fuel filler neck and connect to the generator. It has an onboard filter so you should be fine. If that works go to the fuel tank and remove the pickup tube and inspect. Replace hose as needed. Installing rubber hoses onto barbed fittings is a recipe for disaster if not done carefully. I always cut the hoses off versus pulling them off if the connectors are barbed. A torn piece of hose can act as a flapper valve and slow or stop the flow of fuel. In one case a tiny piece was actually cut loose and lodged into one of the carbs on my friends airplane. That was fun to diagnose and repair.

RE: Ford Edge as a Tow Vehicle??

We have a 2012 Edge Limited. Make sure the version you pick is towable. Not all Edge models are. Ours is a front wheel drive with the big engine.

RE: What are the coaxial connections next to my TV?

possibly this Did you look at this? Someone probably used a satellite receiver box and this setup allows you to use the wiring inside the TT. I just saw this. I have a brand new tt so no one used a satellite receiver box but this is good information. I can only assume the jumper is there to allow the use of satellite in the future. I have to ask. Did this come with a users manual? I looked at the company site and found "supplements". If those are the only manuals I would be highly disappointed.

RE: 7-way Wiring Problem

Follow Old Bisquits instructions and don't guess at it. You can do it by disconnecting all of the wires and grounding the TT with the truck by using the hitch or a jumper cable. Then turn on your running lights and start touching one wire at a time while holding a fuse in between and see what lights up. Then write it down and don't try to remember it for even five minutes because you can lose confidence in that time. Electrons are color blind and don't care what color the insulation is. My FIL was color blind but could wire his truck lights easily. Identify and mark with masking tape too.

RE: 7-way Wiring Problem

You may have two problems now. Getting the wires in the twist locks is where I would start out. Disconnect any wires you connected from the new cord that are involved with the wire nuts. Leave the original wires that were twisted together alone and recap them. Now connect the tow vehicle hitch or grab a set of automotive jumper cables and connect them that way. A good ground is imperative to start or all bets are off and you can get strange symptoms. At this point test your running lights and turn signals. If your symptoms have not changed or improved then a good 12 volt test light and a wiring diagram is where you need to go. You cannot rely on wire colors when buying packages of plugs etc. Electrons are color blind and mfgrs are not consistent.

RE: In motion satellite

Had one, sold it and installed the Travler. The in motion was used maybe twice and is not high def. For the family, DVD's worked just fine. There are lots of phones that can stream video for other times.
