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.

RE: Water heater problem

Old Biscuit seems to always have the answer. I had to take my HWH out to replace mine. Not really a difficult task. Turn the propane off of course and drain the tank. It took some heat from a torch and good wrenches to get mine out. Less than 10$ at Home Depot for the part.

RE: Running the AC while driving

Run it. It is good for the generator. My 8KW uses .5 gph with two AC's running full tilt. The nice thing about a motorhome is having a comfortable living area when you arrive. Not something you can bake bread in or have to thaw out. Yes the question has been asked thousands of times. So one more time is just fine.

RE: The dreaded code 36

If it has a radiator did you replace the coolant? If so, could be air in the system letting it get hot. Just a thought.

RE: Strap stuck under rubber seal for slideout?

Looks like a piece of a pull down awning strap. Perhaps if you have one and it was replaced or repaired at some time this part had torn off and landed there.

RE: Atwood Furnace AND Fridge work intermittant

Gary, you can get tricked and your question is a valid one. Here is what can happen. The converter using shoreline brings the voltage up over the 12.7 etc at your batteries when charged. So you probably have 13.5 or a bit more on shorline. This couple of extra volts may be all that is needed for things to work. Once you disconnect, the batteries even at full charge may not be enough to overcome a bad connection along the line. Losing only a couple of volts can cause the issuse. Taking measurements and WRITING them down is critical. Do not rely on your memory.

RE: Atwood Furnace AND Fridge work intermittant

Yes. The 12 volt supply line probably has a bad connection somewhere. Before tugging and pulling on things you need to get a couple of voltage measurements. Start at the back of the fridge first because access is usually easy. Write the measurements down. Turn the heater on and measure again. If the voltage is going real low you have a bad connection. I assume you have actually measured voltage right on the battery first. Once you have established it is a low voltage issue, which is has to be. Then visually check your wires at the battery area. A loose or dirty connection can cause all kinds of misery. Follow the negative leads to where they go and see if there is some rust issues. Clean them until they are shiny. Twelve volts has very little push and will not go through bad connections.

RE: AWNINGS above the Slide Outs during the Wind r KILLING ME!!!

Trying to get things under the flapping covers can be a pain. A simple extension paint pole will let you run a rope over the tops. Just bring the ends together under the bottoms using a bunjie or a good boy scout knot.

Sold my in motion and installed the Travler. Great HD addition.

RE: Electric fireplace

Great job. I would like to replace the bottom part with a tv monitor. I could use a program to display a waterfall, aquarium, or a fireplace. The heater part is in the top so it would be easy to separate the two. For some reason my wife just does not like the idea. Heck, she let me build an airplane in the garage. She knows I can do it. Guess she does not want the mess in the living room of the RV.

RE: Add hose fitting to outdoor shower?

This is available in plastic tooI just did this a few days ago. I found an adaptor in my pvc stash that fit directly onto the end of the hose after unscrewing the shower head. The fitting was purchased at Lowes or Home Depot. Take the hose and wand to the store and go to the adaptor section. Mine is plastic. No need to cut, bend or tear. Just unscrew and install adaptor. I too love the new hand sprayer for its force.

RE: Keeping Car Battery Charged?

You may miss a few weeks so a small 1-2 amp smart charger as suggested. If longer, consider installing a manual shut off switch.

RE: Driving when windy

The RR8R chassis has some known issues. The following link will give you a long long read. Take some time to read through them. There are hundreds of us that now have solid handling coaches in all kinds of wind. Those that do not have our chassis have no idea how bad some of them are. If you are sawing the steering wheel back and forth you are a candidate. Links

RE: Windows 10 and Streets and Trips

I decided to give my gps puck a go on my new computer and it locks the computer up. Long story short, it now does not work on any of my win 10 machines. Apparently the original mfgr of the chip had a lot of fakes out there and did something to the drivers rendering them inop in win 10 etc. Long story short, I gave up after hours of research and experimenting. I will be ordering a new gps puck. YC, when you get your new gps puck give us a report. My Microsoft gps puck works great with my HP laptop with windows 8.1 but won't work with windows 10 on my ACER netbook and I tried everything that everyone said to do. GPS

RE: Easy Question for Seasoned Class A Veterans...

You do not need an impact wrench or a 6 foot breaker bar with one of these tools. Torque multiplier

RE: Easy Question for Seasoned Class A Veterans...

A 22.5 inch tire and wheel is a monster to remove with normal tools. Even using a torque multiplier you will work up a good sweat removing the lug nuts. Then try lifting one. Coach net takes good care of me. Find a safe place to park and wait. No I do not carry a spare on my current mh. I have not had a flat in over 10 years.

RE: Alternator Not Charging Chassis Battery

If you are not getting voltage at the output of the alternator and you have an external regulator you need to see what is on the field connector. If it has an internal regulator the alternator is kaput. It should be putting out plenty of voltage. Another setup uses an external sense wire that has a fuse. You should be able to look up the alternator replacement based on the chassis. May auto part stores will check your alternator for free.

RE: By-Passing TV Power Booster For Satellite

Not sure if this is what you are looking for but.... sat. rewire Actually I like Bill's way better I have done this twice. Works great. Knowing your existing coax's and what is inline with them is invaluable and do not rely on memory. Make a drawing and put it with your manuals.
