RE: Winegard Antenna Booster

What is broken on the part? Very simple device. You may be able to scavage parts from a new one if there is an actual broken item. Have you used a voltmeter to check it?

RE: Electrical Switches

If it is the inch wide by about 1.5 inch switch get a flashlight and magnifying glass to get the part number off the side. In a pinch you may be able to swap it with one of the others on the panel.

RE: Possible Over Heating Allison Tranny (UPDATE)

Normal. If you are stuck idling due to a serious jam just shift into neutral and the temps will come down.

RE: Electrical Switches

Probably a carling switch and available at a local rv store. IF the outside part you push on is not physically broken it can be snapped off and installed on a new switch. Are you positive it is broken? The switch controls a relay in the front run bay which is the large control panel below the driver in the outside compartment. The relay is a common failure component. It can be bypassed easily to get you going.

RE: deeded rv property

IF, you buy a piece of property with the idea of living in your rv on I,t even though it may be out in the sticks be sure to check codes first. Some places do not allow you to live in an RV. Not fun finding out after you have bought the land.

RE: Diesel Pusher with Bunks?

OK, here is you "other suggestion". If the kids are in their teens they may travel less often with you now. An rv can be a long term purchase so think to the future use a bit. If the kids are big enough to make their own beds then set some rules for them. They make it down and when you get up they do too. Our grandson lives with us full timers and he gets the bed made often before I am up. The precious space bunks would take up is better used for our purposes.

RE: battery question

Since you have it solved maybe this analysis will help you wrap your head around the issue. A water hose is connected to a faucet that has 50 lbs of pressure. On the end of the long hose is your sprinkler working just fine until someone steps on the hose and the water spray diminishes. The resistance causes the pressure (voltage), to be much lower at the sprinkler. The pressure at the faucet (battery), has not changed. That switch probably will come apart and can be cleaned and lubed.

RE: Ceiling AC -- any mods to direct the cold air?

Go to Lowes or Home Depot, and go to the area that stocks ac registers, the grills that fit into the floor for the ducts. Look for an item called a "diverter". These go over the register and devert's the air flow. Ususlly held on by magnets, but you can probably modify one to attach to the ac unit. Their usually made of clear plastic, and are adjustable. Use some velcro on the deverter and the ac unit to attach it so it's removable during the day. Grumpy I did this to both of our AC's and it works great. Removing the front AC cover I actually cut an area out that allows one of the plastic arched diverters to hit the metal frame and is held in place with the magnets and a small strip of clear duct tape on the rear which makes a hinge so I can actually pull it gently till the magnets let loose and the register then directs air a bit lower. The rear AC register was changed even more dramatically when the register just did not work as well because it blows air on the temp sensor and would not run long before cycling off. We live in our rv so comfort is important. Using duct tape, expanding foam, and the largest pvc pipe that would fit inside the register hole that had been previously removed for the plastic thing to fit in, I inserted the pipe and held it in place with tape. Then filled the hole with expanding foam. Once dry a simple elbow piece you can get in various angles is simply pressed on the end. You can redirect the air in any direction now.

RE: temp patch on a cracked gray water pipe ??

Goop Every rver should have a tube of this stuff. It comes in lots of verities such as marine, plumbers, shoe goop, etc. It will stick to just about anything. I think this is how they get Teflon to stick to the pans. :B Use a stick to spread it. It dries in a few hours. It is NOT silicon like so will stick to just about anything it touches. Guaranteed to stick to pvc. It is available at most hardware stores or automotive stores. Don't worry about not finding "plumbers" goop. I think it all comes out of the same batch and they just label them differently.

RE: How to replace an awning strap for a Carefree awning.

Outstanding idea using a ratchet strap, except I stole the strap from my ratchet strap to use as the pull strap. Perfect width and was easily hand sewn.

RE: Need Android app to point a directional cell antenna

May have a signal strength meter on your phone. Go to settings, about phone,status,network type and strength.

RE: Reversed Neutral/Hot question

Use a voltmeter instead. The meter could be giving you a false reading due to some minute leakage current.

RE: Diesel fueling Etiquette

Buy some painters booties or hospital booties to cover your shoes when fueling in the truck lanes. Peeling them off as you enter your vehicle will keep the oil off the floor and carpet.

RE: Diesel fueling Etiquette

I could care less about ruffling feathers. I don't think I have ever seen one concerned look either. I use the truck stops because a 40 footer and a toad are hard to get around. Fill, pull forward, then go inside if you have to pay. We then move to the parking lot to stretch the dogs and take a break ourselves. Using the Rand McNally GPS is a fantastic tool for finding fuel along your route or near someplace you are interested in. Just touch a couple of buttons and you can easily find truck stops along the way and what features they have. Some have no place to park other than fueling so I try to avoid those. If you want to pre flight your trip use Google maps to find fuel and then zoom into the place so you can actually see street level turns. In some cases I will print the pictures out and make notes. No worries exactly what the stop looks like or how to enter and exit.

RE: Electric Coolers

Bumpyroad wrote: gee, a $500 cooler works better than a $69 one. who'd of thunk it. bumpy But does it work better than yer similar-size basic hundred dollar "dorm type" fridge/freezer? link to one Now that we're talkin' compressor units: except for the fact that one is upright and one is chest-style how do these differ? I am kind of wondering the same question myself. My outdoor kitchen on the fiver has about the same fridge as in your link and it works excellent so I dont know why I would spend 500 on one, can someone help me understand the difference. Closer to $800 when I bit the bullet for a large Dometic model. It has handles, a reversible lid, 12 volts or 110, does not have any external fins, is extremely rugged, cools very fast, can be used as a freezer, and worth the money for us when we went full time.

RE: Full Timing as of tomorrow at 10:00 am!!!

American Home Base in Pensacola can provide a physical address as well as excellent mail forwarding. This will take the pain it might become away from your relatives. The mail forwarding will hold your stuff and sort it too if you ask. They will mail it wherever you want and how you want. Very inexpensive. You may need a physical address for a CC too. Have your home mail forwarded to AHM.

RE: where do you winter?

Central Florida. Like it so much we moved from Calif and bought a place on a lake.

RE: Electric Coolers

We've got a 63 qt EdgeStar - its been running in my basement storage for 3.5 years NON stop w/out issue (except the time i lowered the thermostat too low & froze a beer). our edgestar runs on 12vdc or 120vac (automatically switches based on whats available). I never empty ours & never turn it off - when the coach is in storage, the cooler is on shore power. I have a friend that has the same cooler in the back of his van. The van sits outside his house in the TEXAS sun - his cooler is 2 yrs older than ours and it has NEVER been turned off, EVER, and its never missed a beat. My friend powers his off a single deep cycle battery (when he's not on shore power) and a single solar panel (on the roof of the van) to keep the battery charged when he's dirt biking int he desert. I picked ours up from COMPACT APPLIANCES (free shipping). our outdoor cooler is one of the best upgrades that I've ever made - even if we sell the coach ill buy another cooler. I love not having to search for ice or worry about how much ice is in the cooler. http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n255/donrumsey/th_ScreenShot2014-04-01at120813PM.png We have the same one and love it. Been running for a year and a half. Pulled it out to take in the back of the truck for the 4th. Can run on 12 volt but took a long extension cord. It can be used as a freezer if wanted. When we have to defrost our refer on occasion it is great for holding the food. Without having to deal with ice and the water there is a ton of space. It cools quickly and to the exact temp you want. I use a small battery operated fan for even quicker cooling when loading a lot of stuff. As said, this is the best addition to our rv. We are full timers. Ours is on a slide out so is even easier to use.

RE: Tripping breakers

Put the refer and the hot water on propane. The hot water heater can draw 8-12 amps, refer 6, Air conditioner easily 12-17. If the power post is in the sun it will trip at less than 30 amps.
