RE: Rincon, Hobson, and Faria Campgrounds.

1st, Flying Flags is a LONG way from this area, at least 50 miles. There is no "during the week" lull at any of those beach spots. Wed is a technical high point because it's part of the 5 day stay across to the following Sunday. You MIGHT get lucky on Sunday afternoon or Monday, but the odds go straight down after that.

RE: Jayco ceiling fan

Nope we have a champion 3100 inverter but can only run it till 10. Looking for something to run the outlets and ceiling fan over night. We added a second battery.this is a different question from your original post. If you are talking about an exhaust fan, it's likely a Fantastic and runs on 12v. If it's a ceiling fan it could run on either 12 or 110. As far as the outlets, those obviously need shore, gen, or inverter to make AC If you need an inverter, check the local Lowes. They were carrying a line of inverters and Solar gear and decided to get out of that business and sell it all out. My local Lowes still has 300w PSW inverters for $37 hidden in the lighting section where no one seems to look

RE: Norcold class action

I believe its based on years of ownership and out of pocket repairs The ones that will get around 900$ I believe must have had to replace cooling unit etc My buddy has owned his since 2004 and he only got $45 so far but has never spent a cent on the fridge but got extra 3 years warrenty on the cooling unit I assume that this was just for the original owner, as we're the third on this coach and have never heard a word about it, before this? Nope all you had to do is currently or in the past own one and have the numbers ... many said it was a waste of time :S they may re think that poor decision ..been on all the forums for over a year. Nice to get almost a grand .. helps out on the repair or replace ! OK, so we've had ours for a year now. What's the next step???its been closed for almost a year now. This thing settled about the time I replaced mine with Helium and that was last July. Best guess is one of the PO's got that notice and likely in on the class action So, no compensation for my aggravation, eh? I haven't spent money, since a good Samaritan sent me an ARP for next to free, but have fooled with it a good bit and in addition to that install.Nope! Judgement called, & disbursements are now starting for those that were part of the class action. On top of the letters sent, there has been discussion on all of the RV forums for several years. Sorry bout that.. The ARP obviously doesn't fix the problem but it's certinaly a better early warning device if you're gonna stick with the OEM

RE: Norcold class action

Waiting for my check. Just emailed the paralegal earlier this morning. Did you all report billable hours? My billable hours came out to around $4,000. Wondering what I will actually receive. The class action was pretty straight forward with what the reimbursement is vs. a list of situations pertaining to present or past ownership, etc. This no billiable hours to report. You signed up for the 4 or 5 options, period.

RE: Most Expensive Camp Site Ever

Sounds to me it should be divided over 14 days if you want to bill it to a trip

RE: Very sad at number of useless posts

Isn't anyone here aware of the 'easy' photo hosting moderator 1492 created? What's turned useless is the excellent Honda 2000 carburetor rebuild thread.Hopefully the OP will go back and move those pix to something that works. I just downloaded all my PB images with the matching links shown under the PB splash page, so it should be an easy fix once a new home is found

RE: Need to replace the bat wing antenna

And to those who continually cite "real world", inferring that my testing wasn't.. Those tests were done on the Class A listed in the Sig, a long way from any sources of interference or other local transmitters that could contaminate the test, and a long way from Mt. Wilson. The analyzer was plugged into the output of a splitter, the same one feeding the other TV's in the coach. I don't know how much more empirical it can get ? So given that, once again... The numbers don't lie. I bought that antenna to change it out if the Batwing didn't measure up. But the Jack didn't match up on anything, and still doesn't. I run into people occasionally up at the beach and am able to compare my now 11 year old Batwing with others running Jack's on their RV's. Over the years, none have beat the Batwing for looking at both LA stations as well as those across the water from San Diego. O well....

RE: Sirius-XM Beware!

I bought lifetime back when it was affordable. Both have paid for themselves several times over and I haven't seen or heard from Sirius in years

RE: Need to replace the bat wing antenna

Do an advanced search for SCVJeff and read his tests of the various antennas. He is definitely pro Winegard and I think for good reasons.and you better hurry before Photobucket ruins this report. Batwing vs. Jack The Batwing is far and away the better of any antenna in RV service. Anyone suggests different, ask them to prove it. Anyone that's ever said a Jack outperforms a Batwing, has a broken Batwing. These numbers don't lie

All that proves is they havent found you yet. The more you post pix the more you'll appear on their radar for your Dear John letter ..

RE: Removing the plastic shield from Motor Home

HERE is the latest thread in this Thanks y'all for the info.I guess I was missing the heat part. My trouble is I'm afraid to try the heat, sure don't want to mess up that paint. Thanks again.You may not have a choice, but I can pretty much guarantee that the pressure required will end up being a point stream and you're gonna drill through the surface. Go back and read that other thread again. The last post is from a guy that just did it with a heat gun. You being in Texas shouldn't have allot of trouble heating that thing up from the Sun and just work on it for a few days

RE: Very sad at number of useless posts

---snip--- It's a move that can have unintended consequences. While this move mostly targets the commercial moochers, it may very well alienate the so called free users at the same time. Without the masses of free users and the revenue generated by them, PhotoBucket would become dependent on subscription plans. With many free options out there I doubt people will flock to subscription plans and the money generated from the few that do may not be enough to support the company in its current state. So while you and millions of others have paid nothing to use PhotoBucket over the years, you leaving the service has a dramatic and real impact.Normally I would say you are correct, but the way we that post pix here, there are no ad revenue click points to be had. I simply link a pic from Photobucket, and thats all that shows up. We here are in-inconvenienced, but the BIG losers are people like eBay sellers who have hundreds of thousands of pics resident on PB. AFAIC, THEY are the freeloaders that have caused this shutdown. I don't know what their business model is, but cannot see me (us) or these eBay sellers leaving them have any effect on their bottom line whatsoever as PB's logos or any ad-based content is nver shown the way we do our thing with them as pure links, not the website. Even though (knock on wood) I have gotten the Dear John from them, all of my picture posts, including the technical reviews with LOTS of pics are still available. For those I think I'll learn how to post in IMGUR via RV.net. It took awhile to download the entire library off PB, but I can rebuild most of it now just matching the links with the downloaded files
