RE: Beer can cooking....not the norm

Brining makes an incredible difference. I brine my holiday bird from 3-5 days. They are awesome. What do you put in your brine?

RE: step control module

Step model? I just ordered a control box for my 2008 HR. The steps are Quickee steps. Since I see no limit switches the box must measure a rise in current when the steps reach their limit. Does it seem like the steps are getting extremely tight when they close?

RE: Firewire on digital camcorder to laptop

Ebay Do a little research on this device and you probably can find a used one on Ebay. The box will let you record directly to the DVD and then you can toss that into your computer to do editing. DVD editing of long projects can be very time consuming and frustrating without a smoking fast computer. If these are vacation movies you can just transfer them with the box and play them with any dvd player. Just FF past any sections you don't want to watch. Once you have a single copy of the transferred video you can use a program to make multiple copies for family and friends.

RE: electric problems?

I suspect the breaker is in the hot sun? If so, put something over the pedestal like a bucket or even a beach towel to get the hot sun off it. Breakers lose a percentage of their value due to the heat build up. They work on heat to begin with. I vented my breaker box inside my RV due to severe heat build up and breakers tripping in extremely hot weather. No more problems. I used to keep a vinyl peace to cover pedestals in hot areas.

RE: Blew a fuse I cannot find... Bum,bum,bum.

12 volt side of life Welcome aboard. You have already found the value of this site. We were all noobs at one time and some rv's are more complex than others. The link to the 12 volt side of light should enlighten you about your systems.

RE: Extremely Close Call

Nice to know about the recall. Mine too failed. Fortunately no fire involved. I could smell the issue from 40 yrs as an electronic tech replacing burned components.

RE: Mobility Scooter

go go We get two of these in the back of a Ford Edge. They come apart in seconds and each piece is light enough for either of us to lift. We bought a three wheeler last year for the wife and recently I bought a four wheeler on Craigs list for $500 with a new battery. It had never been used. These go all day with no issues and are really easy to get around on.

RE: Tank gauges seldom work correctly!

Install in tank flusher that will rinse the sensor area directly. I have the original tank flush device and added one as stated. I use quick disconnects to switch between the two. Sensors work great now.

RE: Refer problems, No I mean ice maker problems

Are you sure the freezer isn't in need of a good defrosting? The entry hole holds the hose lightly and cannot hold the pressure of a frozen ice dam. My ice maker has been a real pain but my wife won't let me toss it out. I even bought a new one but it too is a pain.

RE: Check Engine Light Leads to Stop Engine Light

Does he have a "Message Center" ? It is the device that provides mpg, range, and lots of other things. It has a diagnostic mode.

RE: amount of heat given off by a #1141 bulb ?

Seems you may be running your generator a lot. Perhaps a 110 volt device left in place so it supplements the heating while the batteries are being refilled.

RE: How many watts of Solar do you have?

I have 170 watts. Don't boondock much anymore but when we did the generator was used in the am and evening a couple of hours due to very heavy demands.

RE: Scangauge used on a DP

Very likely. A friend installed one recently on his DP Monaco. Turns out he had two ports but one did not work correctly. He found one stashed under the dash,.

RE: How Long a Learning Curve Driving a Class A

My biggest concern graduating to a 35' A is negotiating windy mountain roads like hwy 20 from willits to fort Bragg, ca, or 120 into Yosemite. I handled it in my old 20' TT pulled by F250. Looking forward to a few east trips like I-5 north of Sacto. Just slow down. I have driven that route with our 40 footer and toad many times. Don't make it your first trip of course. Use the pull outs when necessary to let traffic pass. Use your transmission selector to keep it in a gear that lets you go fast enough but also gives you some good engine breaking. You will have to move up or down a gear on occasion but won't get surprised with a quick up shift going downhill on a curve.

RE: Typical Fuel Mileage You Get With Your Gas or Diesel Class A

40 footer running about 500 hp at 60-65 towing we get 7.5-9 Weight is about 42K lbs. Two mods done to a 400 ISL improved the mileage,hp, and torque.

RE: How Long a Learning Curve Driving a Class A

Driver confidence course Depending on the size of the MH and how well it handles. It took me about a year getting really comfortable with my 40 footer. However it had some serious handling issues and was our fourth motorhome. In general several trips will calm you down. When backing always use a spotter. Crawl when moving backwards or making tight turns.

RE: Electric propane switch killing batteries

A solenoid of that size will draw in worst case and I am sure it is less, about .5 amps. Do the math. In 24 hours that is 12.5 amps. This is a very simple problem. Batteries are buckets full of marbles (amps). When batteries get old the buckets become weak and cannot hold as many marbles as when new. It would be a very rare case that batteries would last that long in any RV. Most are gone way before that. Load testing them is a real waste of time. We don't buy batteries, we rent them. That is to say that batteries must be replaced every few years. If you had a solenoid bad enough to run two batteries down in one night you would have some serious smoke.
