RE: Is it going to end ?

Its nuts! Woke up to the low 60's this morning with a morning breeze, and never broke 82 all day. Now after 2AM and just came in from watching the eclipse and its still 64 I would say something smart about your "chilly weather" but I am not a lover of temps over 75F. Sun, heat and me are not very compatible. Enjoy your weather, a lot of people would love to have it.well thats a good thing considering where you are.. I think we'll get ours next winter since theres another significant El Nino forming out in the Pacific.

RE: TV question

Running the gain to max can also cause enough intermodal in the amp that the TV scan gets stupid, I've seen it. My Samsung seems to be happy around 12-13

RE: Anyone use a 12 inch drop for toad?

My MH hitch is 27 inches high. My Honda base plate is at 12 inches. Anyone using a 12 inch drop and where did you find it?I don't know which base plate you have, but the Roadmaster base plate can be reversed, giving you several less inches to make up. It's an undocumented feature. At least it was on mine.

RE: Coaxial TV cable getting hot / Need wiring diagram

That starts to indicate that your antenna power supply is wired to the external coax, and its fused way too high, and its cooking slowly. Does the power supply work on the antenna?

RE: Coaxial TV cable getting hot / Need wiring diagram

There is NO way that the OP can screw coax onto the CG connector and not get knocked on his can from a spark. Think about it.... This is not what it seems

RE: Coaxial TV cable getting hot / Need wiring diagram

Since none of us are there, all we can do is speculate. But the simple fact is that anything with enough current to 'melt' coax at the connector needs some seriously stiff current, probably 20a at least depending on how long this takes to fully cook if this is some sort of ground loop. IF this is the RV antenna supply feeding a dead short, there is still several amps needed to heat the cable. That would mean that the RV is wired wrong, and the power supply either isnt fused or is over rated. Sooner or later the magic smoke will appear. As for the picture, the black ring looks like a deteriorated 'O' Ring

RE: TV recepytiom

It may also be the TV. If you have extra coax, barrel it onto one of your outlets and feed it to each TV, one at a time, and do a scan. That will tell you if it's coax or the TV.

RE: PORTABLE LED WORK LIGHT (link)

I saw the plug-in ones, but not these. I saw a studio key light last week with ONE LED about 1/2 way between a quarter and $.50 piece. In the fixture it's equivalent light was 1000w.

RE: Wait, no. can't be. I forgot what?

I'm sure glad this wasn't a 1st word recognition game because the 1st thing I thought of was 'Hemorrhoids'... :) Having been on that front tower up on Diablo many times, I know right where you were.

RE: extension ladder to get to roof? How to protect roof edge?

I slit and tape on black foam pipe insulation on the ladder edge touching the roof. Works good.x2

RE: Coaxial TV cable getting hot / Need wiring diagram

And you didn't see it spark when you screwed either of the cables in? What about the RV end of this cable, it is hot too? If you have the kind of current to smoke coax shield or the crimp connect, that is some serious current

RE: Need switch for Fantastic Fan.

The switch is a common DPDT with the end terminals cross wired.. IF you find a DPDT switch of the proper capacity (At least as big as the fuse that feeds the beast) you have all you need. Wire as follows Terminals 1 2 3 4 5 6 1 hooks to six, 2 to 1 1 and 2 to motor, 3 and 4 to power. I think you meant 1 to 6 and then 2 to 5 to reverse the polarity to the motor.There will be a quiz later today...

RE: Surge Protector Reading L1

Either it's broken or it's telling you the truth. If those are real alarms, it did exactly what you bought it for and likely moving sites won't fix it. 141V isn't something that happens on the pedestal. BTW- just because your neighbors TV's are on doesn't mean they too have the same high voltage issues.

RE: 1985 southwind battery trouble ???

Sounds like that 454 has a flooding problem too. Once you get to that point it makes no difference how charged the battery is, you need to wait it out. I had the sister to yours (Pace Arrow) and it would get persnikitty at times.

RE: Replacement for a V-8 Explorer?

Have you towed identical loads with both? I have.. V/8 hands down

RE: Norcold issue again, this is getting old

There are two different threads going on here. One to reset the fridge, and the other to reset the fail-safe. The fail-safe is what the reset conversation is about

RE: Replacement for a V-8 Explorer?

You might keep an eye out for a 2011 to 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee or Dodge Durango with the 5.7L V8; it will have more power than the old 4.6. Another possibility is the Lexus GX... used ones hold their value well though, so you'll pay more. Or you could move up in size to the Expedition or Yukon, etc. Why not the 3.0 EcoDiesel Jeep Grand Cherokee or the Ford Explorer Sport with the 3.5L EcoBoost, or the new Chevy Tahoe. Good LuckAs the ex-owner of a V/8 Explorer as well as a new one, the two aren't close to being on the same planet power wise as a tow vehicle. And the Sport makes it worse being shorter. I think they meant the 5th Gen Explorer sport... It's the same body (they don't make the 2 door any longer) but with the Ecoboost v6. Pretty sure it tops out at 5000lbs towing capacity which is the same as the non sport with tow package. It's the body/unibody rap frame limiting it , not the engine though.its heavy for sure, and 'they' say the unibody is stronger (now sure about that). What I know is that towing my 180 SeaRay with both, there is a significant difference in performance between the two. Even the braking seems anemic with the new body. The boat is heading to a full time home in the marina, which is fine since it won't be in tow..
