RE: Generator hours

I have 1500 in 8 years. It runs like a clock.

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.

RE: Recycled Asphalt/ New pad for parking

I have parked my 40 footer on the recycled asphalt. No issues at all.

RE: Recycled Asphalt/ New pad for parking

Very surprised about the asphalt comments. Maybe the person that put it in for me was just more experienced. He dug down almost a foot, then back filled with some sort of rock, then a good layer of the recycled asphalt. It has remained solid, level, mostly weed free for three years. I would not just use asphalt alone. It needs a good base from what I saw. No tracking of oil or grease. I would do it again.

RE: Killer rain 1, Satellite 0

Sheesh. We are native Northern Californians. 10-15 inches of rain anually, rarely caused us rain fade. Here in Central Florida it can rain 8 inches in a day. We get plenty of rain fades. I keep local channels piped in for those times. I wish it was not raining so much there. We are from Yuba City and the surrounding counties are in serious condition.

RE: Fridge in slide-out

Tinner, the issue is the vent is on the face of the slide versus out the top. The natural flow of hot air is blocked. I have had my fans fail and the temps go up quite a bit. I added two more fans at the base of the refer coils since we camp in really hot weather.

RE: 120 volt outlets not working, need help!

The devices you describe leads me to the Inverter/Charger. It is very common for breakers to trip right on the converter itself. 110 volts passes through under normal conditions. The refer socket that was dead is probably for an ice maker section of it. The entertainment stuff would naturally be on the converter/inverter path.

RE: ANY have comments on SAFE T Plus Steering control

Took mine off. Tired of the resistance when driving. It does not solve poor handling. Track bars, Watts links, and getting the slop out of steering boxes really solves the poor handling. For example, many of us Monaco line owners have changed our steering boxes from Sheppard models to TRW. The TRW has an adjustment that will take virtually all of the steering play out.

RE: Need a program to look for duplicate folders and files

It runs fine on my W10 machine.

RE: Need a program to look for duplicate folders and files

Thanks for the tips. I will check it out and see if it runs on 10. I like to keep backups on a couple of computers and on a thumb drive as an additional safe backup. I use a very simple program for that called Synch Toy. Been using it for years.

RE: 3.0 USB question

Bottom left search box. Type "device drivers", look at the page of hardware on your open page. Scroll down to the USB device and right click. The pop up will show a couple of options to try. One is to search for new hardware but the first one should be to update your drivers. That alone may do the trick. Be sure to do a reboot after that.
