RE: What about a 2004 Winnebago Sightseer

Make sure you drive it and test the brakes. Mine took both feet to stop. Mine was a 2005 on the Workhorse chassis. Loved it other than that. Need to add a trik-l-start to keep the engine battery charged if you leave it plugged in or better yet add a small solar panel.

RE: Tool for adjusting after being on the road for a long time

If that is the "ONE" pedal, where is the "TWO" pedal?

RE: Outside Kitchen Frig

Quote: "Tapped into a 12vdc line running power to the heating unit but for some reason it just not running the frig." There could be a couple of volts loss on that run of wire.

RE: Outside Kitchen Frig

I have a suspicion the wire you are trying to draw power from is not carrying the load. Inverters must be kept very close to the batteries with very heavy cables. It is better to run a long extension cord than to use long DC connections. Measure the DC voltage input when the refer is running. Your refer may not like the modified sine way of your inverter assuming it is not a pure sine wave inverter.

RE: How TOP GEAR does, or used to do, an RV Roadtrip?

It is sad that Jeremy caused issues and managed to get fired. It was a great show.

RE: Whiten tub/shower stall

Try straight white vinegar. You can buy it in gallon jugs. Let it soak for several hours. You can wet a towell and drape that over places you can't soak.

RE: Pocket Hose

They too are junk. They offered to sell me a new one at 1/2 the cost of a new one. I would pay decent money for one that was actually built well. I love the concept.

RE: Automatic Satellite finding a Satellite but no signal

Low voltage, low voltage, low voltage is my vote. Intermittent issues due to low voltage was common. If I wasn't an ET I probably would not have chased it down. Connected to shoreline with batteries full it worked fine. Generator running and things were fine. The very long run of the DC wire caused about a 2 volt drop. When the batteries were not being charged that dropped the voltage below the level the dish wants. Since I have an inverter a simple power supply cured the problem. Once the dish is locked on simply turn things off. Make sure your rv is level and not one twig is in the way.

RE: Wi-fi antenna - omni vs. yagi

If you want to mess about when traveling between RV parks a yagi is fine but a bit of over kill and will not usually produce any significant improvements. A good gain Omni and a simple Wi-Fi repeater works well. Mount it on your crank up antenna and feed it to your router or a good device that you can then feed to any inexpensive router. I am done with the experimenting phase and want to simply crank my antenna up and see what there is out there. A yagi can actually not be as effective in the real world as a good Omni while traveling about. A good gain Omni is a great investment. one of these lol you do realize those are not omni's that you linked to right? they are panels and directional. OOH, hand to forehead. Oops. Try this one

RE: Wi-fi antenna - omni vs. yagi

omni antennas are vertically polorized. Yagis are horizontally polorized. Yagis can be polarized either way. Television antennas were horizontal. Most common uses are vertical.

RE: Looking for a good cell phone booster

There are exceptions to everyones experiences. If your phone shows no bars that does not mean the signal is 0. Ask Apple about their issues and inappropriate signal strength bars. You need a DB measurement and not bars. I give advices based on the average consumer and do so with 40+ years in the telecommunications business. The Wilson does not output 3 watts. Yes with gain antennas the Effective gain can be that. I have had them on a test bench with some very expensive test equipment. Our RV's block a lot of signal. Getting a decent antenna to the outside world, that is the roof or higher, along with a bit of amplification is really key. I have spent thousands experimenting with various amplifiers and antennas in my RV's. Since I own a telecommunications company I buy anything that interests me. If it does not work, I toss it and move on to something else. I have personally installed thousands of radio systems. So to keep it simple. The Wilson is an exceptional buy and is one of the simplest systems to install and use. My ten cents worth.

RE: Looking for a good cell phone booster

If you get any signal there a booster will help. If zero signal, not likely. However if you get aggressive with a good roof top antenna there is a chance. Someone suggested standing on top of the RV with the phone and check for signal. If none, then a booster will not help.

That woke me up. Thanks for the reminder.

RE: Invsi brake system

Wolfe, I do have the dash light. I have not had them go on by themselves while connected to the RV but I did have them go off once in the driveway after a real downpour. I unplugged them at that time. I am aware of the failsafe and it does work. After about 15 seconds they release, however one tap of the brakes and the cycle will start again. I think the company may have resolved the problem in later units but not sure. I am tired of messing with ill mannered toad brakes and will change to the simple Ready Brute in the future. I believe the issue is a tiny bit of leakage voltage across the diodes feeding back and fooling the invisibrake into thinking it is seeing a brake input. Most issues I have heard of are during a lot of rain and water contributing to the issue. With that said I may try pulling the two brake light fuses in the Toad to try and remedy the issue. I have not pressed the brakes and had someone tell me if the brakes lights come on under the setup conditions of the toad. That is, in neutral, ignition button in accessory position. It is a keyless ignition so the brakes may indeed be hot. Heck, maybe I will venture out tonight to check.

RE: Tire pressure increase at summer temperatures

Check your rim pressure maximum as well. I am sure that mine rated at 130 could go a bit higher but I stopped the other day when one went to very close to that. I reduce the pressure just a bit because the monitor system was wining.

RE: Invsi brake system

Coincidence. Electrically the brake is a dumb component that is an input device and not an output device. However, if using diodes in the installation and they get wet it can feedback enough voltage to keep the brakes activated until they time out. Not a good thing. I have mine unplugged at this time due to that problem. Maybe I will redesign mine and use relays for isolation. Hmmm. If I had a schematic of the device I suspect it would be easy to fix but alas, probably will never see one.

RE: Looking for a good cell phone booster

I highly recommend and use the Wilson Sleek with a roof top antenna. I am in the telecommunications business and have bench tested their devices. No it will not create signal where there is none. They do an incredible job when there is a bit and really help when you are sitting inside a metal vehicle.

RE: Lassen Volcanic National Park

Check out Childs Meadows. Rustic but close to one of the entrances. If you are there for a couple of days drive over to the Lava National Monument area in your toad.

RE: China Bombs Twist

Saw a blow out on a TT yesterday. Passed me like I was standing still. I was doing 62. Just as I mentioned to my wife that many tires are not rated for those speeds his right rear blew. Shrapnel flew a long way and he managed to dodge back into my lane and finally pulled to the side. He went a long way at a high speed even after that.
