RE: Which RV is best for the zombie apocalypse?

An armored truck conversion with extra gun holes for the roof climbers. Depending on who you believe, a Zombie infestation has nothing to do with anything electrical. That's why you can drive away or run them down in the movies. Maybe keep a vampire around too :)

RE: Quartzite RV show, Jan 2015, anyone??

There are lots of folks that take buggies, quads, dirt bikes, etc., and drive in via the river bed. You can get all the way up to Plomosa to the North completely off road

RE: Lost Direct TV Signal

You may or may not even see the bend unless you can take the reflector off and lay it over a known good one.

RE: HDMI splitter not always splitting...

They are not.. OP - is this an active or passive splitter? HDMI can get persnickety when you start playing with splitters, especially passive splitters. Often there is not enough level from the source and through the splitter to drive two destinations. That plus screwing up the HDCP decoders can cause all sorts of problems. If you are not running a passive splitter, get one. Additionally you may experience issues with the HDCP decoder that will shut video off of the source (sat Rx) if when it calls down the HDMI cable to see what's on the other end, it gets a response from both TV's. When that happens to me it's because I power up the coach and both TV's are on. Always power up things with one TV, not two to avoid problems. And yes, this shutdown will still pass audio

RE: Day/Night Shade

Camping world had the repair kit on sale so picked one up and fixed one of the small shade that had frayed....was an easy fix but just had to take time and follow the instructions....the shade worked better than when it was new.....wow.....anyone with shades should carry the kit in the trailer....i keep a roll of much heavier than OEM string, grommets, shade threader on board and have done all but one. Make sure you install the grommets in the CORRECT direction, not necessarily the way they came out. That's the prime cause of failure: the factory screwed up

RE: 48 hours on genny. Electrical shorted now.

French word for "Wire Nut"Maybe it's a PC thing because the real crazies didn't want to be referred to as Wire Nuts.. :)

RE: TV Antenna

With the new digital TV system reception is all or nothing. With the old analog TV system it was all or snowy and snowier as reception faded. The advantage of digital is improved picture quality of those signals that are received. Plus several more sub channels i.e. 16 -1, 16-2, 16-3 etc. in the same spectrum. Placing an antenna higher almost always improved signal but for many of us we simply want to crank it up and down and point it towards the signal. I would really like to see an unbiased review of the new antennas verses the older Winegard that include mounting on an RV roof from a fringe area. Also I would like to see how critical it is to point the antenna in the proper direction. This may have already been done but I am not aware of it.I did one about 2 years ago HERE. This was done on the extreme N-W end of Los Angeles County where I have OTA, but it's not very good, so was perfect for this comparison. As noted, these tests were done from the Motorhome and as close together time wise as I could gather data to keep from being affected by inversions. There will likely be a few show up here insisting that their results are upside down from this and lots of unfounded reasons why theirs is better than this, but the numbers simply don't lie regardless of what the armchair engineers might think. As soon as I get my analyzer back and some time, I'll do this again with Winegard's cute little blade antenna. That one ought to be interesting.

RE: (In Sienfeld Speak) "So, I Get An Email"

So your next impossible mission assignment Mr. Phelps, is to design a charger that will cycle through all these values and times.

RE: TV Antenna

The real cause of all our television reception problems is the switch from analog to digital. With digital if you have any antenna problems or in a weak signal area you will get nothing. With analog under the same conditions you would get something albeit of poor quality. Thank you Uncle Sam.Blame the government if you want, but reality is that the FCC simply set a timer to what had been coming for over 10 years. What they did was eliminate a format war that nobody would have won.

RE: TV Antenna

There is nothing magic about the Jack. You have a broken Batwing that seems to happen way more than it should, and fooling people into thinking the Jack is a significantly better antenna. Its actually not.

RE: Did Marcus buy Trailer Life?

I just wish TL were on a format usable by Android. Pixelmags is great... but not everyone has an iDevice that will bend to their will.HEY... Thats an iPhone pun... :)

RE: Rv.net App?

It's been asked many times. No app that I know of. But, realistically, would likely be of benefit only to mobile phone users for site formatting for smaller screens. Most tablet users would most likely prefer the regular site anyway?And since "phones" are turning into "Phablets".....

RE: Rv.net App?

Does anyone know if they are working on a form app? It would be much easier to view and post. I know iRV2 has an app and other sites work with a reader app. RV.net does not work with it though.nope

RE: I want a super bright Scare light!

Geeeeze... WHY is it the light police just can't let this go? Huntindog- take a look inside from time to time and make sure you're not overheating anything with your LED stuffed fixture. LED's do make heat and that's a really sealed and small enclosure.Agree. As with any mod, there are potential problems. The stock incandescent was 35 watts. It got very HOT. Way too hot to touch. The LEDS do heat up, but I can hold my finger on them for quite awhile. Of course with there being five of them, the cumulative heat load may be more that the single pistol hot bulb they replaced. No easy way to test it other than just doing it. This mod was so cheap though that it is worth giving a shot. I will keep an eye on them for awhile, and report back.... Gotta laugh as some are still worried about me in a campground. Nice to know they care.:B Yep, the whining gets really old. They have no clue where you camp and why it's needed. I built an Amber LED area light out of 12 1W LED's I called LEDZILLA in a scare light fixture specifically to make sure I run it in the darkest CG's I can find... :) Anyway, 12 watts can get pretty warm in that tiny container, so be careful. I have all of mine mounted on an aluminum plate but am looking at changing the LED's in LEDZILLA out for 3W devices (36W), so I'll need to do something about cooling them. It also has a full range dimmer on it so I dial up the level needed from 0 to full bright. It's built with 4 groups of 3, so I can run it full bright on 10V via 8A regulator.

RE: Rv storage near L.A -Needed

In today's LA Craigslist there is a new RV storage place listed near LAX. I think it was 85 dollars a month.just the price alone makes it suspect (way too cheap). Any specific info.?
