RE: Ice Maker Not Making Ice

Ditto on having to PRIME mine sometimes. I use a turkey baster. I think the warm water causes it to move into the proper cycle.

RE: Safety pin that hold the big pin in place on a hich

I tied a small cotton rope on mine with a small loop to run a couple of fingers through. Comes off much easier now.

Has it ever worked? Even once?

RE: Voltage divider SOLVED

Change the bulb to 12 volts if possible. Cheaper most likely.

RE: Can You drain coach batteries while driving?

Need to sort out between an rv being towed versus a motorhome. An rv being towed if running something as heavy as an inverter could run the battery down. A motorhome uses much heavier wire that can be used to "jump start" the engine battery by pushing a button. Once the vehicle is running,heavy current can easily flow and keep up with any loads. That said, it is always advisable to run the generator if the coach battery bank is low in order to reduce the load on the alternator which is not designed for charging large banks of batteries. So, in your case it is highly unlikely you would run your coach battery down.

RE: Excited and ready for first time towing

May I suggest making a simple check list and laminate it. Velcro it to the dash or somewhere easy to see. Grab it and do a walk around.

RE: Lacking Power

I agree on the service center check. You may not be getting the turbo boost you need due to something as simple as a leaky coupling hose. In any case I suspect it would not be a speed demon. I bet your mileage is good though,.

RE: feedback on clear lake RV resort

It has been several years but I seem to remember it has excellent shade. Many of the dump pipes were several inches higher than ground level creating a bit of a nuisance. The place is nothing spectacular but decent.

RE: Alternator and starter information

Excellent article. I am saving it for future postings. Pictures really help explain things. They should have done a bit of proof reading in the first couple of pages but the mistake does not make it an issue. Thanks.

RE: Boat trailer brakes locking up.

What brand of trailer are you pulling? On my Ranger boat trailers there was a solenoid that blocked the flow of fluid to the brakes when connected. They were activated by the back up lights of course. This solenoid is a small device with two wires and was clearly visible along the rail near the tongue. Look for mfgr names on the actual brake mechanism and give them a call. If this is not a new trailer the previous owner may have lost the proper pin that might have a small round ball on the side to keep it from coming out.

RE: how to make a12 volt switch lit in off postion

Buy a cheap motion detector battery operated light. Velcro it to any convenient place.

RE: Info for snowbirds

Now you just keep on spreadin' that story as much as you can, we don't want people to know the REAL fun we're havin' down here during winter, it'll get too crowded!

Hi neighbor, have we met? Great report. I resemble those remarks.

RE: Are LED Marker Lights Better Than Incandescent Markers?

I would never go back. The advantages of led are just to great.

RE: Battery Separator Problem

Hi All: Am having some problems with my battery separator on my Lance TC 1161 2003 truck camper. The battery separator is not charging while truck/camper are connected and the truck is operating. I have replaced the separator (twice), put in a new gel cell battery and replaced the converter. Tested the voltage from the truck at 14v and the voltage from the camper battery at 13v (made the voltage tests at the separator). Basically the separator cycles on and off. Anyone have any ideas on what to check? Thanks, Harold Bypass the separator that has caused you problems twice and now three times. Clean all connections even if they look clean and tight. Twelve volts has a very weak push and cannot flow across dirty connections. I helped another Lance owner over a year ago and don't have the schematic any longer. After bypassing his he reports his troubles are gone. The concept of the device is nice but it seems in the real world it often causes more problems than it solves. Another possibility is the Gel cell voltage is different by a bit and causes the separator to think it is fully charged. I could do some research on the Gel versus Flooded cell but you already spent the money on a battery.

RE: "Jack" digital antenna

Well said Jeff. In some cases a very directional antenna actually does not perform as well as one with a wider pattern. Most noticeable in mountain areas or lots of buildings or tall trees near. I have had to go to Omni antennas in some cases to make base stations perform better. I like the wider beam width of the Jack. In any case it is an excellent choice. I too had the wingman on mine but the smaller foot print of the Jack is really nice.

RE: norcold fridge

Thanks for the responses guys It is a norcold model n814r serial 1101287 it is a 2003 model and I have operated it leval for the 4yrs I have owned it. It apparently has no fans and is an absorbent type ? A norcold guy told me to bypass the thermozistor and see if that works . I am trying that now , but it does't appear to be dropping below 52 for one hr now. What thermistor are you going to bypass? Just might be the fan control. I just helped a friend sort his problems out and due to the intermittent nature it took a bit of effort and patience. Did you put some water in the vent tube drain to cover the end of the tube? This is just a simple test.

RE: Zappy 3 pro-flex scooter

Scooter Bought this for my wife. The battery lifts off. It connects via contacts so no wiring issue. The seat lifts off. Then you pull a lever and the motor and rear wheel assembly disconnects from the rest of the unit. The steering column folds down. This will fit in the trunk of just about any car. It runs many miles. We have no problem running around Walt Disney World all day. The basket lifts off too. You can get a sun shade as well. The price shown is not what I paid. I paid around $1200. It also moves at a good speed but no 17mph.

RE: Battery Question

Check the specific gravity after charging. If they compare well you should be fine.

RE: winegard satelite

Microwave communication dishes are painted routinely. Not metallic paint of course. To prove it to yourself do a before and after signal strength test. Find your weakest signal and compare it. As a telecommunication tech with 40 yrs in the field I would not hesitate to paint mine.
