RE: Recommend a decent AM antenna for house

You haven't been to Radio Shack in awhile have you? Jeff, Correct. But the irony in your post is that Radio Shack is all but gone... but can't afford to close down all their stores. They're out of cash and it costs money to close everything down. The sharks are circling and the long knives are out. Stay tuned....yeah, I didn't want to go there but you're right.. There are discussions every few weeks on CNBC . RSH closed about $.90 on Friday. Bummer...I read this morning that Amazon is looking at them...

RE: Poor Digital TV Signal

And the adjustable +-10db amp really works. Sometimes you need a little pad

RE: Confusing over the stuff a bag Sept 12 & 13

CW NEEDS one price for everyone PERIOD. The gimmick******needs to endI don't know why that's a problem ? If you are a Good Sam member, you get a discount, period. It's been this way for 30 years. It works at supermarkets, gas stations, etc. what makes this different? Rockhill: Even though I will never consider buying an RV from CW after my last attempt, I have a CW store 10 min from the house. Why drive 30 miles to another RV store just to stick it to CW? The gas alone completely offsets any discounts (and I have seen few) at the other place. People whine about CW on this forum just because they can. It would sure be interesting to see the people line up on a Walmart forum. Oh yeah.. Walmart doesn't sponsor and completely support an open forum for people to whine.

RE: Classic Brake Buddy issue

Is that a home run outlet? Those compressors draw allot of current. Checking the voltage at the battery is often quite different than measured at the 12v outlet the BB is plugged into I don't know what you mean. It came with the car as a standard option.that answers the question. If it were home run to the battery, you would have installed it. If you have a DVM with sharp leads, puncture the insulation of the BB under load and see what it is. Those things draw around 10A, and that's not an insignificant load for an under rated outlet.

RE: Camping World, must be pre qualified to look?

Hello helperzack, Thank you for bringing this to our attention and I'm sorry to hear this happened. I would like you to know that I have my team looking into this for you and someone will be reaching out shortly. If you need anything else in the meantime, please just let me know. Take care and have a good day! Elizabeth Black-Osborn Marcus Rapid Response TeamPersonally I would like to see the written corporate policy on this.. What determines lockout without prequalifing; cost of the unit, profiling the customer? It should be made crystal clear and posted why some will be walked out the door.

RE: Poor Digital TV Signal

The distances Bill mentions are achievable providing the terrain is reasonably flat since the towers in Houston are right at 2000', so that makes line-of-site to you just shy of 70 miles. This situation is where the Batwing shines over the Jack: extreme fringe areas. If you don't have a Wingman, add it. You also might be able to add a preamp, but the amplifier only amplifies whatever is at the input. No input, no output, so the highest performance antenna is a must. As for amplifiers, Winegard SensarPro is the best one out there for RV use because it has adjustable gain (sometimes too much is a really bad thing). Look around and see what the neighbors or local ranch's have. If they are running 50' masts with giant wedge antennas then you probably won't have much luck 15' off the ground.

RE: Recommend a decent AM antenna for house

They are around, and some manfacturers provide external loop antennas that sit next to the receiver so you can rotate it. The problem is you are still not out of the nearfield noise.. I have a passive antenna tuner in the garage that is the size of a dinner plate and about 2" thick that you set next to the local antenna then tune this for peak signel through the radio and it works amazingly well, just cant remember the name. Also look at C. Crane. They are one of the last companies that deals with high performance AM

RE: Looking for info on Trojan BT-105 Batteries

I've spent a bit of time looking at the Trojan site as well as my rather detailed Trojan app and see no mention whatsoever of a BT-105

RE: Battery Smells like rotten eggs.

DANGER! This is no joke! Disconnect from shore power. Let the battery cool down. Put on a set of goggles or safety glasses. Take an image of battery wiring positive and negative Fill the battery with water, any water I have seen a boiled out battery now full of gas explode as it was being removed, and the guy pulling it out now has ear damage from the explosion. Fill it with water and purge that gas! NOW Remove battery. It's worthless except as a trade in. Return with new battery. Verify nothing else got damaged by high voltage. Lights, refrigerator, etc. Note voltage of battery as installed. Do this in the morning not late afternoon. Connect shore power and monitor charging voltage. If voltage surges, zig zags, or acts weird, stop. The converter has PMS. This is as far as I'll go, anything more would be conjecture and pure manufacture of permutations not warranted at the moment...

RE: RVBQ

While these are a great idea, that might be the worst place for it. There is a post over on iRV2 showing a totaled MH with Halon installed and the bottle never went off because there was never enough heat down low and this one started higher up. I talked to Mac the Fire Guy about this in Q and he said they never really figured out the point of failure but it wasnt in the normal place. I have the same Halon only standing up but its on the opposite side from the burner and may have the same issue. After that fire post I installed a second one at the top of the fridge cavity.

RE: Temperature Compensation--Battery or Ambient?

Mine is stuck between the batteries in the hope is will assimilate the battery temp. Otherwise it's going to be wildly inaccurate being adjacent to the engine.

RE: Seacliff, California, road side RV parking by the beach

Isn't there a Seacliff state beach on the California coast? if I remember correctly it's a full hookup site and sells out really fast. Could that be in the same area?There is a Sea Cliff off ramp, but there are no CG's by that name in the area. There are a very few FHU at Faria and Hobson only. You must be referring to Santa Cruz
