RE: Fuel Leak ... need mobile diesel mechanic

Is your filter as much of a party as the C7 ?

RE: Who has been refilling 1 lb propane tanks?

geeeze.. What triggered this? You "illegally" refill so you don't dump steel in a landfill? :S Man you see the most far out comments on this forum.im commenting on the one I saw... "Illegal" was in quotes since these are technically one-time bottles. I refill em too on occasion but that's not the point

RE: Adding Fans to Norcold refers

I'm using LED PWM dimmers off eBay. Fully assembled with knobs and terminals $4 delivered from China. Lemme know how the two speed works out, that might be another project. BTW- I saw those fans on eBay for around $16 a few days ago

RE: I drove off with the antenna up...

What he said.... There is no possible way those antennas are remotely close to each other in performance. It wouldn't surprise me if you couldn't walk outside and SEE the antenna farm. Im sorry that you didnt like my results. I was in a state park, rural area roughly 50 miles from my house and I live in the outskirts of the city. All I am saying is when I tried both antennas I got the same results, thats it. Believe it or not I really don't care.Me neither! If you READ what I SAID, I didn't call you a liar. I said the antennas are nowhere close to each other in performance, MEANING your test isn't a valid comparison of them. Chill...

RE: Am I supposed to plug anything in this port?

No There was an indicator or interlock at one time IIRC but it runs fine all by itself

RE: Question for S. Cal people

Gorman is at the top of the Grapevine. Using the 138 you will still have to deal with the steepest part of the Grapevine.Going down..

RE: Who has been refilling 1 lb propane tanks?

Not me I bring all of mine back from the trips and they go to a special place in our local dump... I usually get a two pack at WALMART for $5-$6 I think it is... Roy KenAfter paying about $60 for 20 lbs of propane the least you could do is recycle the steel instead of filling the landfill with 20 steel hulls.geeeze.. What triggered this? You "illegally" refill so you don't dump steel in a landfill?

RE: Directv upgrade to HD

Thanks for the info! I know the front tv has hdmi but not sure about the bedroom one. Hard to get it out of cabinet to reach the back. It's about 7 years old. Anyone know if they were putting hdmi connections back then.2006 was a crossover year so it could have gone either way. Ours had an LCD TV, but it wasn't even digital, so out she came...

So it looks like you were right on the start of the 5 day turnaround

RE: Whom Of Us Boondocks 14-days Or More At A Stretch?

Hi Jeff, Because it is moving heat from outdoors to indoors. So 1200 watts to run the compressor moves about 3000 watts of heat. (That is an example--not actual figures). How can you be more efficient than a resistor? 100w in, 100w out of heat How can a heat pump possibly beat that?but that's a moving target depending on outside tempo and what can be harvested, no? Obviously 65 is way more efficient than 55. So where's the break-even point?

Here we go again... We got it, you have a compressor OK ? Congratulations, we don't care

RE: Adding Fans to Norcold refers

I just added 4ea. Noctura NF-12 fans to the upper exhaust vent. After doing way more research than I ever thought could be done on fans, these were chosen because they are EXTREMELY quiet for their CFM airflow, they're IP65 environmentally rated and can live in temps of 250 degrees plus. All 4 at full speed can barely be heard with your ear in the outside vent, and not at all inside, all while easily holding a piece of paper flush to the vent from suction. I run them on a PWM speed control at about 30% and when in LaQuinta a few weeks ago ran them on full at 95+ with the sun on the fridge side and was struggling to keep is above 28 degrees on temp set 4. The plan is to tie the PWM controller and fans to an ARP and let it run the show as needed. If I did it again I would probably use only two fans but overkill is always good with these fridges. http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r192/SCVJeff/E569D61F-77FB-4886-A166-074E216EE5B5_zpsmtwvm1nn.jpg height=600 width=700

RE: Shades that go on the OUTSIDE of a window?

The cool ones have Neyodium magnets in them and their counter part is glued inside so all you do is slide them into place. Buying the commercially might get expensive, but heavy duty shade screen, magnets, and someone that can sew might work out nicely

RE: Correct LiPo Charge Rate?

His 18650 batteries are not LiPO Chemistry, which ends up with 3.6V per cell, fully charged. More like Lithium Manganese chemistry is what he has, 4.2V, fully charged. Like in that big bad boy green laser you bought down at QuartzsiteI need to go look at mine because you can cycle through a bunch of charge routines. All I use is LiPo Mr. Wizard: I was just looking at the site and found they now have a few retail locations. For me it would be cheaper to get rolled for my wallet than to let it make it through the door with me...

RE: I drove off with the antenna up...

Anyone that currently has a Jack antenna is going to be replacing it in a few years when all the stations realign and VHF is again king of the hill and completely full. The Jack is not a VHF antenna at all. Having said that, there is nothing that competes with a Batwing, period... So it's up to you... You can install a considerably lesser antenna on the roof, lose performance and antenna height and what could possibly lose all your reception, or build a checklist and use it. HERE is the link to those REMOVE BEFORE FLIGHT tags.

RE: RV.net needs to get with the mobile times

This comes up every several months and it's usually started by someone who prefers it operating a different way and has nothing to do with how it displays. I am on this forum all the time from an iPhone, iPad, 17" PC, and a Mac, and they all operate exactly the same. I also run iRV2, RV Forums, RC Forums, and Salt Water Reef Forums on all the above equipment, and they all display exactly the same on any device. I really can't understand what the problem is.

RE: Correct LiPo Charge Rate?

Just like here you need to read through all the BS to find logical answers. If you are looking for LiPo chargers, the cheapest place to find them is HOBBYKING. The main warehouse is in China but they now have several US and other international based warehouses around the globe.
