RE: Need affordability campground suggestions close San Fran CA

I wasn't aware that San Francisco and "affordable" ever fit in the same sentence

RE: HELP!...What can I do to keep fridge cold and food safe?

I have 4 Noctua NF-F12 PPC 2000 fans on the upper exhaust powered by a PWM dimmer turning the fans around 40%. That is enough flow to hold a piece of paper on the lower intake vent with ease. I also have an 80mm Noctua in the fridge blowing across the entire heat sink (those ones on eBay the blow across 3 fins is silly). Why so many on the roof? No reason. But when in Palm Springs just shy of 100 degrees I had them running on high and the fridge never left the low 30's with no extra water swapping nor grazing the fridge limits. Once everything is cold soaked it seems to stay there. The whole point is to have zero temp delta between the intake air, and that being exhausted. These easily achieve that. The NF-12 is around 55CFM IIRC, and they are DEAD SILENT... With all four running full out. There are other reasons for the Noctua: they are built to live in environments of 250 degrees, they are IP65 (extreme dust and moisture resistant), very low current draw for what you get out of them, and they run 3phase motors, just one more little thing to eliminate vibration. Did I say they are SILENT? http://i144.photobucket.com/albums/r192/SCVJeff/E569D61F-77FB-4886-A166-074E216EE5B5_zpsmtwvm1nn.jpg height=500 width=700

RE: Really Nice Rack Handles At A Good Price

Hi Jeff have you been there ? I will assume you have i love to root around in therei used to spend my Saturday's there 20 years ago rummaging around, waiting for something to fall. I also learned early on not to walk in looking like money (custom HT-220 HT's left in the car) because Steve the Lush would charge accordingly

RE: Power inverter won't stop running.

Yes! I picked mine up late last week after 4 weeks of no sun and the parasitic draw coupled with them using power to test awnings, etc., all but killed the batterys and it took several days to recover

RE: Power inverter won't stop running.

A perfect example of why a DC Amp Clamp is often more important than a simple DVM

RE: Temp Regulation in Norcold Fridge

A real Norcold guy ? Neat! Welcome to the forums but I hope you have your padded fire suit on because there are a few that aren't very nice, but we know who they are.

RE: Ford Explorer transmission problems

Which year Explorer ? The old and new are COMPLETELY different and really unrelated to each other

RE: Dum de dum dum Wanted Alive

Maybe there's a market for a wifi wall clock that could automatically update from your phone... Maybe just use a tablet (Ipad) with a simulated analog display... this thread got me to wondering if there's a wrist watch with auto time zone capability. turns out there is...but at a price. clickyThere are actually two now. I have a watch with a WWVB receiver that relocks itself every night just as any of these other clocks do, but my only reason for having a power hog GPS Rx watch would be nothing but geek factor.

RE: Flummoxed by cable TVs

Just want to thank everyone for all the good info. Will probably stick with using DVDs and Xbox for Netflix etc as we really don't watch cable or any broadcast TV much at home or on the road.ah cummon.... For some of us its a mission to achieve some level of success in TV DX. Gives you something to do .. :)

RE: Dum de dum dum Wanted Alive

Just curious... What's the point of the subject?

RE: Dum de dum dum Wanted Alive

Other than a GPS referenced watch or two at around $1000.00, I doubt you will ever find a clock that's auto correcting. How many people move the clock in their house? The technology between an "atomic" clock and one that sets and corrects itself based on location are completely different technologies.

RE: Flummoxed by cable TVs

We traveled to Arizona and back this past winter, and each stop along the way we have to scan for channels on both tv's. If the cable is really poor, we scan for air, and quite often it was better. Then of course in Arizona satellite is all there is!I can guarantee you THATS not true at all.

RE: Flummoxed by cable TVs

So now you know what everyone else already did: You MUST scan the TV everywhere you go, period. That includes cable and off air. Who uses Off Air anymore? Everyone! That's why it's the default mode. Otherwise mode would be removed. Now you know how to watch TV when boondocking too

RE: Temp Regulation in Norcold Fridge

Did it have food in it or was it empty? Everyone, including NORCOLD should be putting fans in their fridges and don't. Dometic seems to have started on at least one model I saw at the show. Obviously they help

RE: Mounting Wilson Trucker cell booster Antenna on TV Mast

You were just fine mounting it on the crank up assuming you did not mount it much below the head. Mounting on RV's is always a compromise and the crank up is where I have my wi-fi repeater antenna. I use a roof mount antenna for my cell phone.Me too

RE: 12 volt buck/boost unit

Well ya got us on that one, but I wouldn't be messing with my media server either.

RE: Winegard Sensar Pro tweaking

It mentions this in the Sensar Pro Manual as I recall. but yes, TOO MUCH GAIN can overload the Television so you sometimes need to crank it down at 30 miles, I would expect this, Gain of 20 is for 50-60 miles.Its likely being swamped by transmitters considerably closer than that
