RE: Fleetwood Fiest 12V outlet near TV - no power

Check the 12V DC fuses near your power converter panel. Usually next to the 120V AC breakers. The on off switch is to switch on/off the antenna booster power. On for OTA TV, off for cable TV.

RE: 12 volt batteries, solar panel and inverter.

Grandpa, IF you want to run your microwave from your batteries and recharge them via solar, then you will likely need: - Four batteries - A 1200 Watt (or bigger) inverter - Short and large (diameter) cables between the inverter and the batteries - And a 200 to 300 watt (minimum) solar system (and plan to use power conservatively at that) This type of system works well ..... for me. But you best verify that this is really what you want before jumping in as it isn't cheap to do. Steve This is the best answer so far IMHO. You'll definitely need to go with an inverter with about 150% of the MW's steady state draw to pull this off. Perhaps a better option for you would be a small generator to recharge your batteries each morning.

RE: Leaving the "C" Class group

Great for you:)..You can still post and read here! Why leave us? Actually the best experience for these forums IMHO is to only use the "Newest" button at the top left. No need to view only one forum, when you can watch all of them at the same time....

RE: 500a Shunt Question

I would use brass only. Dissimilar metals will react to each other and corrode. Especially when electric current is passed between them.

RE: Norcold N821 Inverter for AC use

The N821 consumes about 360W in AC mode according to the spec sheet. But it does run on LP gas also. In either case it requires 1.2A of 12VDC power for the control boards. Not really seeing a need for an inverter at all??? Dah... OK now I get what you're asking. As stated the requirements vary depending on model but they can range any where from 1000W to 1500W. I did a 2000W unit myself. :S

RE: Adobe Flash player

A different browser is not an option. My wife has Parkinson's disease, and changing to a new system would just confuse her. Her days are difficult enough without adding something new to the mix. You can have more than one Browser. Just use Chrome to do these updates if that works. But to me it sounds like you have bigger issues perhaps IE has been hijacked or there is Malware present.

RE: Cannot connect to WiFi

Have you deleted that connection, and then tried to re-add it?

RE: Lack of Hot water

Are the outside shower knobs on and the shower head in bypass?

RE: 2006 Ram 2500 CTD advice needed

Most likely has codes. Have it scanned. I'm betting it lost it's smart key programming.

RE: Standing on Slide out

The slide out floor is supported by the RV's main floor. The slide out roof is not. I say no way!

RE: Security from theft

As you have heard by now there is no good way to secure most RV's. With a battery powered portable grinder and cutoff blade any cable, chain, or lock can be cut in a matter of seconds. Best thing to do is don't leave anything of value in the RV...

RE: 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

I am a Jeep engineer. First off it's a 4X4 right? There is no steering lock so you don't need to leave the key in the ignition or pull any fuses. Just hook it up, shift the T_Case to N and you're good to go. As stated read the owners manual under Recreational Towing. Well, Jeep engineer, the manual is incorrect. The one that came with my 2012, anyway. Needs to be changed. Ha! There was a screw up on that point in the OM for a couple of years which I pointed out to the appropriate group, but alas it took them a while to make the updates.

RE: Security question; Alias cell phone and second email

Don't know any reason to have a second cell phone. For email yes, there are hundreds of places out there. A couple of the top ones are Gmail, Outlook, Yahoo,etc.

RE: Traveling I-10 in mid-December

Interstates have a minimum vertical clearance of 14 ft in urban area's and that includes any alternate routes required by construction, detours, etc.

RE: How a TT is built

Easy to see why most RV's have issues when you look at them that way!
