RE: Dutchmen Express toilet too high.......

I built a deck for my wife. Just a small one. Must learn to step into bathroom so as not to catch foot.

RE: ems

If you are on 50 amp or generator it probably will not show amp usage

RE: Help, Ford Explore battery dies when flat towing

At three years old you may as well do yourself and replace it. We only rent batteries, we never really buy them. They break down inside and lose the ability to deliver full capacity. In my business working of vehicles with two way radios I always knew the cold weather of Winter would bring out the complaints of radios running down batteries. Many customers would say their mechanics had tested the battery and it was the radio running it down. Simple measurements proved it was impossible so I would ask the customer to buy a new battery and keep the receipt and bring it to me if it did not fix the problem. I never bought a battery in 40 years except for buying one myself because a stubborn fleet mechanic refused to replace the fire chiefs battery in his new vehicle. Problem was solved and the chief was happy.

RE: Help, Ford Explore battery dies when flat towing

If it is a three year old original battery it is worn out. It may pass the basic tests but they lose capacity at the end of their life. If you have keyless ignition and adaptive cruise the procedure for towing may leave some things alive. I can actually hear my adaptive cruise sender singing so know it is alive.

RE: Ford Focus Transmission

I believe there is a class action concerning that. I am having my 2012 Edge rebuilt at 63000 miles right now. It is not in the action but it is frustrating to have to spend 4K with a transmission that is three thousand miles out of warranty.

RE: Toad wagging MH

The narrower wheel width may be trying to track road ruts. I have considered experimenting with a sway bar to see if that takes the tug of war out.

RE: Ice maker woes

Jerry, that is a fascinating theory. I replaced my valve twice and finally just abandoned the ice maker. I replace the ice maker itself too. Now I will see what kind of pressure is coming out of the plastic hose. Thanks

RE: Am I Supposed to See 12V at the Tail Lights?

If you are using a digital voltmeter and no bulb in the socket your voltage measurements may be useless. Sorry for the bad news. Without a load (bulb), in the circuit you cannot determine if you have a bad ground side. Yes the input voltage is a bit low but if it goes even lower with a bulb in place that is an issue too. Not sure why you have a green/ground and a white/ground wire. Is this a dual filament circuit? Be absolutely sure you are using the same bulb as in the side that is working. A digital voltmeter can read full scale and not have enough power to run a bulb once installed. I like to use a cheap 12 volt test light as a quick backup. It is a simple go, no go device and visual.

RE: Am I Supposed to See 12V at the Tail Lights?

I think I might have misled some. By building a long jumper, and a simple spade lug connector to disconnect it when not in use, you can have a reliable voltmeter ground when needed. You can also use that as a temporary ground if needed during testing.

RE: Am I Supposed to See 12V at the Tail Lights?

Find a place you can make a solid ground for this issue and in the future. I promise you it will be helpful. Build a jumper wire long enough to reach throughout the RV. Now, as suggested, use the same ground because an invalid ground reference will make you crazy and misdiagnose things. Make sure you used the correct bulb and that it is inserted correctly. I have seen wrong bulbs stuffed into sockets.

RE: Sat amp?

I suspect your coax or connectors are not working properly. Should not be such a dramatic difference between 25 and 100 feet.

RE: Darker exterior color cause higher temps inside?

Using an infrared thermometer it is amazing how hot the dark colors get on my rv. They will burn your hands in the Summer. It makes a huge difference when we put the awnings out. The frames of the windows are metal and transmit a lot of heat inside too. We have dual pane windows which really helps with the heat and noise.

RE: Snagit

I have been using Snagit for years and upgraded yesterday. I like the features. You can download several presets. Saving them in many different formats is handy.I use it to save all kinds of information.

RE: How to remove circuit board?

Be sure to unplug the power cord because there is 110 inside the box and you can get across it easily when the cover pops off.

RE: My Wilson Sleek makes data download speed WORSE

The front end of the receiver is getting overloaded and creating electrical noise. Or, the thing has become self quieting due to the location of the external antenna on the Sleek. That is, much like a howling PA system when the mic gets too close to a speaker. Can't hear the person at the mic when this happens. I am trying to not be too technical here. I'm a telecommunications person with 40 yrs in the field. Those signal levels are enormous in the RF world. You system will work with 1/3 of those.

RE: Plugging a Rat Hole

Steel wool works. It hurts their fillings. Seriously though, it does work well.

RE: Verizon?

I was a Sprint dealer and had a Verizon phone because of use in the RV. Does that give you a clue to which one has the best coverage. Traveling in almost every state so far the Verizon coverage has been excellent. Add a mobile amp and it can even be better.

RE: Convection oven recipes?

We have had out convection/microwave combo for years and never used the dual cooking method until I attended a class at Lazy Daze this year. What a neat tool. There are recipes and cooking times available if you search. You can cook a turkey and brown it too. If you learn to brine a turkey, which is really simple, you will have the best moist turkey ever.
