RE: Converted ductless range hood to vented

Now just add a magnet to the flap and glue a washer on the inside so the flap stays shut until you turn the fan on and the pressure pops it open for use. I can't reach mine so using the little locking tabs was impossible.Can you elaborate on this? Maybe include a few photos? I can't reach my vent flap either. Locking tabs are on the outside and I just removed them. Glue a magnet on one corner of the flap on the outside. Glue a metal washer inside the flapper area so they overlap when closed. It does not take a strong pull to hold it shut. Posting pictures on this forum is way too difficult.

RE: Need ideas on replacing crank up antennae!

JackCut the mast down and install a Jack Antenna. It has a low profile and you should still be able to turn it.

RE: Hot fridge

You may have two problems. The first when it was not getting as cold as it can your drain tube was probably cracked or placed inproperly allowing air to enter. Or you may have a vent fan that is not functioning properly. Second, your control board may have failed or you may just have a blown fuse. When you take the outside cover off is the chimney area hot? There are several videos showing how to troubleshoot your issues. I will see if I can find the link. It was from folks I believe their names are Ford. Here is one example. Search for the rest of them. You will be impressed.

RE: Calling all Hunters - Venison recipes

Ground jerky. Just some liquid hickory smoke, a bit of water, lots of pepper and some salt. How much? Don't remember and never measure anyway. You can't make the jerky fast enough to keep up with demand. Ymmm. For frying small venison steaks I soak in egg and milk mixture with normal seasonings. Then season flower with the same things and toss the meat in. Fry till just done. Do not overcook.

RE: Venting cooking steam outside

Outstanding! You probably were amazed how much quieter it is inside now too. Now for your next project to enhance the cooking area. Notice how poor the light is below the microwave? And inside the cabinets next to it was very difficult to see in. I tapped into one of the light fixtures and ran led lighting under the microwave, under the edge of the cabinets, in the cabinets, and behind our spice rack. What a difference. The leds are cheap on Ebay and you can cut to length with scissors. Oh, and then our closet was very dim so I strip lighted it too and added a motion detector. Went crazy and did the huge storage bay with a motion detector too. Have fun.

RE: Venting cooking steam outside

Stud finders can be helpful. Go out early on a dewy morning and you may be able to see if there are beams in the way. You would not have to cut the beam out in any case. Paint it or use foam to protect it if you happen to find one in the way. I layered my two vent holes with metal duct tape. The outside plastic vent with a flap and latch was fine except no way to reach the latch. A strong magnet and then a washer glued to the inside edge works great. When the fan comes on it flaps open just fine.

RE: any info on highway 20 to Ft. Bragg, CA?

Take your time and don't let the traffic behind you make you go faster than you need to. Lots of places to pull over. And do so. Get out for ten minutes and enjoy the smells. I have pulled that route many times with our 40 footer and toad. The route North of Ft Bragg is tight as well so take your time on that 17 mile stretch. The trip is worth the drive. You will like the campground.

RE: Venting cooking steam outside

Download the manual and I suspect you can change it to vent to the outside. That part was easy. Had to cut through the outside and add a vent with flapper. Really dumb to have these things vent inside.

RE: Driving to Disneyland experiences?

Been to Disneyland in our RV several times and dozens without. We took our 40 footer to the front door of the Grand Californian hotel. They unloaded us and a nice young man in a Cadillac escorted me across the street to park in the Disneyland hotel parking lot. They put me along a fence in the back. Took my time getting things set for leaving and the ride back took a couple of minutes. The Grand Californian is beautiful. The original Disneyland hotel is great fun and you walk to either park. There is the Paradise Pier across from the Grand Californian and it is a Disney hotel as well. If you can stay in any of the park hotels it will be a memory and you never leave the magic going back to an RV park. A nice RV park nearby is the Orangeland. There are a couple of others as mentioned. Not a fan of using a shuttle. If you have a pov take it right to the parking lot and ride the tram to the park. You can come and go if you need a mid day break.

RE: Gray tank smells

Ditto Bobbo: You can use a rubber coupling with two clamps. They are available at any Lowes or Home Depot. Mine had the same problem. To seal the bottom again there is a great product available at the same places. Goop. Goop is available in several flavors but any will do the trick. It comes in Plumbing, Marine, etc. I think it is the same stuff. It is very sticky and you will spend a couple of days peeling it off your fingers if you don't use gloves.

RE: Power Gear / Adjustments

T.I.P. Troubleshooting Information on Power Gear 1217 E. 7th Street Mishawaka, IN 46544 Phone: 1-800-334-4712 Fax: 574-256-6743 AUTOMATIC LEVELING SYSTEM SET UP & RE-CALIBRATION PROCEDURE Note: The following set up and recalibration procedure is for control 500630, 140-1227, 140-1170, 140-1228 (used with touch pad 500629 or 140-1226). Note: The auxiliary receptacle is a four-pin connector on the control box, not the touch pad. CONTROL BOX TOUCH PAD Zero Point: The zero point is the stored level position; the orientation that the control senses as level. This can only be set when it is in calibration mode. Zero mode is indicated by all of the lights flashing on the touch pad. If the control is in this mode, you will skip the recalibration procedure and move straight to the set-up procedure. Recalibration Procedure -Use these steps to put the control into calibration mode. 1. Turn the ignition on and the touch pad on. 2. Push the front button 5 consecutive times. Within ten seconds, push the rear button 5 consecutive times. • All of the lights on the touch pad will begin flashing. This indicates that you have successfully returned the control box to calibration mode. Set-up Procedure -Follow this procedure to reprogram a new zero point. 1. Place a carpenter’s level on the floor in the center of the coach. 2. Manually level the coach: • Push the front button until the front jacks contact the ground. Once they contact the ground, hold your finger on the button until the front jacks have lifted the front of the coach by approximately 2 or 3 inches. • Push the rear button until the jacks contact the ground. Once the rear jacks are on the ground, get the coach level from front to rear using the carpenter’s level. • After front to rear level is achieved, turn level ¼ turn and level coach from side to side. 3. To store the zero point into the leveling controls: • Push the retract button three consecutive times to store the zero point. • After the retract button has been pushed 3 times, all of the lights on the touch pad will stop flashing except the ON/OFF light. The ON/OFF light will flash for 20 seconds. This mode is prompting the user to tell the control if the auxiliary receptacle will be used. Within this 20 second time period you must execute one of the next two instructions: o If there is a harness plugged into the auxiliary receptacle or you are going to plug a harness into it, then press the RETRACT button three times. o If there is not a harness plugged into the auxiliary receptacle, DO NOT touch any buttons until the ON/OFF light stops flashing. This completes the set-up and recalibration process TIP Sheet #153 82- L0317-T REV. 0D 02-23-2006

RE: Dometic Refer Fan Issue

Have you located the snap thermistor? If it has been changed before it is probably easy enough to reach. Likely close to the top. You may be able to remove the vent on top and reach it. If you want a quick fix just install a switch at the bottom and you can turn it on or off by removing the lower vent cover.

RE: Dometic Refer Fan Issue

You have a another bad snap thermistor or it is touching something it should not be. It is designed to run with air temps and not be contacted to something that will dissipate heat quickly. If your refer is working normally other than the fan cycling access the device and see if they have it screwed to some fin that may cause it to cool quickly.

RE: With Grand Daughter in California

Orangeland is the nicest one around, easy access to Disney. Just a few minutes to the park. Anaheim Resort is a little ways away and has a shuttle. The shuttle is not great. Drive if you can. The other remaining is across from Disney and is Anaheim Harbor. It is a tight parking lot with little room. You could walk to the park but drive or take the shuttle.

RE: Looking for best campground in Branson

Currently in Branson. Forget the ABC campground. I think it is Americas Best "name that is". What a crock. Takes a shoe horn to park. Only good point is Wi-Fi. Over priced crappy spots. There is a state park close by that I can't remember the name. Drove through and found it to be outstanding. They have 50 amp, Wi-Fi, beautiful place. Only reason we are at another was due to a previous engagement. The park we looked at is on a lake.

RE: steel wool and foam to plug holes to prevent mice

Either one will work because it hurts their fillings when they bite it.:B I like spray in foam and they make many flavors.

RE: Direct TV satellite set up

If you have a smartphone I'd highly recommend the DishPoint AR Pro app. You can Google where to get the Android version app. Ditto: Getting a clear view is important and you can really get tricked. You may have one limb or tall skinny tree blocking just one satellite and it will drive you crazy. Then, always start with the tripod or mounting device perfectly level. NOT 1/2 bubble off. The right left motion is not nearly as critical as the up down is. Look around to see if there are any dishes already set up in your area and start in that direction. Going right to left about 6 inches from the compass heading or looking at other dishes should get you started. When you change the elevation do so in the smallest increments you can. Then slowly move right and left again.

RE: preparing to full time

Get the MH, spend as much time as possible shaking it down and discovering all the issues with it. You still have a garage so it is easier to do modifications and repairs in the driveway. Start moving your stuff into the RV to figure out how little you really need. Sell and give household stuff away. Once you are ready to sell you won't feel crimped for time. Just move to a local RV park. Once sold you can pay off the RV if you haven't already. Who cares about it as an investment. You could be hit by lightening tomorrow and never enjoy one day of retirement. Get out while you can. Don't be a turtle.
