RE: Long checkout lines at CW

---snip--- If I am willing to give you money, please find a way to take it quickly.And this is the 2nd best quote of the day and one Marcus needs to figure out sooner than later.

Ever done 700 miles a day? ALL you're gonna be doing is driving and try to stay awake towards the end

RE: Telescoping Ladders?

Xtend and Climb seem to be the gold standard, but they're also not cheap

RE: Ready to give up on DirectTV

Bill.Satellite---who sells a DTV roof mounted antenna? Also, we are not concerned about HD. we are very concerned about ABC, NBC, CBS and have DNS services.It was mentioned above, but to bring it to the front of this discussion: You ARE aware that DIRECTV has announced that they will start to shut down SD service in a very few years ? While there may be some SD left, they are saying it's likely only local stations, meaning if you are out of that service area, you will have nothing, and that will likely also be the value of your antenna as well. This information is from several satellite forums as well as CNBC

RE: Long checkout lines at CW

We have too and it's ridiculous. One of the reasons I'm starting to shy away from Camping World. There are times that the GS "discount" simply isn't worth the wait.

RE: Alternate locations for flagpoles

Huh?.. what did I miss ? Dave: Here's mine. I had the poles and holders and snapped it at the base, twice. They are warranted but that doesn't fix the problem. I still use the upper P&H bracket, but this one is what takes the load. Below is grey ABS, probably 3/16"+, painted and a zillion coats of clear to semi match the coach. As mentioned before, I found this from a guy in Q. He had a website: gotomycamp.com, but I think it's been changed. He built these things because he was having the same issues with the plastic ones. Hopefully I'll get there next week and get a card to send you http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r192/SCVJeff/225EAEAB-29D7-4EEC-8FD8-12B79351F822_zpspoqqerii.jpg height=500 width=500 http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r192/SCVJeff/1980AFE4-2B81-4B3E-BB39-E1AD8155EA31_zpsvdhvc2ac.jpg height=500 width=500

RE: LED's What type

At the end of the day it's all about how the LED is driven= how bright. Just because the ratings are 'x', doesn't mean the design engineer is going to drive it that hard. I have several LED strips, 2ea. 5050, and 3ea. 5630, but from different places. Even the like strips don't match as the ballast resistors are different on the strips. 5630's are supposed to be brighter than the 5050, but not either of these

RE: Can propane Extend-a-stay tank add to main tank?

If this is for Quartzsite, wait till you get there where its way cheaper

RE: One 110 outlet reading low

On a 50 amp system you most likely have most outlets on one side L-1 or L-2 of the line. The other side has the microwave outlet on it and its voltage is low at the pedestal. So yes it's a park problem.that totally depends on how the coach is wired. Ours has the WH and 2nd AC compressor on the 2nd leg. And it goes through the ATS

RE: LED's What type

A 921 is a socket base, what goes on top is up to you and your use. I have 921 base LEDs that are map lights, room lights, and 50w backup lights. You need to decide that it is you want and what fits the space and needs

RE: One 110 outlet reading low

My initial guess it that the park has a problem. Jerry Parr That's what I'm thinking.They can measure the outlet at the pedestal all they want and find normal voltage. That's doesn't mean there isn't a weak connection someplace that will cause that voltage to drop when your rig tries to pull a load from it.As Scott says; just because they measure unloaded voltage at the pedistal doesn't mean it can sustain a load. I ran into this last year where the pedestal plug was simply worn out, but it didn't show until a load was brought through it

RE: Propane versus gasoline generator

iMO- Propane should only be used where gas doesn't make sense. For long term storage you can't beat LP. It lasts forever and there's nothing to gum up or go stale. Perfect for a standby residential gen set. There are also laws about commercial gas storage that got us in a pickle at the office. We store an emergency generator at a microwave shack located on top of a large commercial building. The landlord would not allow a flammable liquid up there, but had no issues with a 20lb tank that we store on the roof. Lasts forever, and if it leaks it just vents to the atmosphere. The generator is always ready to go with no fears of contamination. I thought that propane was heavier than air? If so, than if there was a bottle leak in a confined space it would pool on the floor and then fill the room until it found an air duct or cracks in the floor, where it would flow down to the lower floors. This is why marine propane lockers are vented overboard from the bottom, not the top! If your "microwave shack" is just an added on shed on the roof with an air space between its floor and the roof, you should be all right, unless it's a still and windless night when it springs a leak...... Propane is heavier than air and can "pool" when leaked. Natural gas is lighter than air and will vent to atmosphere if not leaking in an enclosed space. Gasoline vapors are heavier than air and can "pool".its a 16 story building. There's no place to "pool" vapor, and there is never not a breeze. But there are plenty of places to pool liquid. Either way, this isn't the discussion

RE: Solar wiring !

Like I said, that's a new one on me. None of my various small inverters have ever done that, and the Magnum is rated at 25V. Back to the OP.. tying the solar to the larger gauge wire still won't arbitrarily cause this

RE: What determines battery cable size?

The gauge has clearly been settled, but what stands out is the 14 crimp connections between two places that should be hard wired, or have a master switch in between at best. What are all these stops along the way ?

RE: Interesting variable power supply for charging

I have a slightly improved version of that for LED projects. Constant current is a wonderful thing

RE: Solar wiring !

There are times however when some solar controllers exceed the input voltage of the inverter, i.e. when they go into boost and for a few equalize mode.Guss I'm living under a rock. I've never ever seen or heard an inverter fail to light because a solar charger over voltaged the inverter input. That's still not germane to the OP's question

RE: Alternate locations for flagpoles

Rainbow Rod Flag Pole This is what I have and I love it! A very close personal friend of mine builds them. Not only do you have an amazing solid built base and flag pole, but, you also get a 5'6" LED whip on top of that! Trust me, with this one, you won't be asking for your money back!! $239?!?! That's pretty pricey. His website doesn't show the base. Do you have any photos that show the base?Dave, Take a look at mine next time you are at the lot. That's an atomic version of the poles and holders version I found in Quartzsite. This built by a retired desert rat that sells all kinds of lights and buggy poles out in Q. Likely the same guy mentioned above but nowhere remotely close to that price. If you have a ladder on that estate this would work fine I'll take a look next time I'm over at the lot. Does your guy sell online?not sure but we are headed to Quartzsite and I'll get his current info for ya
