RE: Tadpoles in the grey tank??

Did you actually SEE them, i.e. Are they big anough to make them out? I would suspect sewer flies before tadpoles and they too are black but don't look like flies when under water trying not to get washed away.

RE: Stainless steel screws

I have a question, why SST? If you say steel ones rust, there is another issue water intrusion, which should be addressed. Because for me, 90% of our camping is at the beach and the salt eats at everything inside and out. I have a complete selection (probably 20lb. worth) of SS screws, nuts, washers, Nylocks, etc., including a separate bag of 3/4 sheet metal SS painted satin black to replace those from the factory that rust through the paint. ANYTHING that gets removed for any reason is replaced with SS. It's turned into a fetish..

RE: Replacing the Winegard Sensar with a King Jack antenna

That's a problem with the Batwing, very rare. Is this driving wind damage? There are other antennas around, but the advantage with the Batwing is performance. The Jack is simply nowhere near as sensitive as a Sensar, especially on VHF and there is no way to get around that. If you're a surbubran camper the Jack may work fine, but if you're a boonie camper, there is no better RV antenna than a Batwing. Sacramento has some challenges with receiption because of where most of your transmitters are located out on the delta There will be one or two that will likely show up here to contest that, but look around this forum and you will find pages of people backing up what I said above.

RE: Burning rubber spell after towing CR-V several hundred miles

If it weren't so dang far across Texas the trip would have been a lot shorter. If have since levied a complaint to the Texas state government, but haven't yet heard any resolution. Thanks for the answers.the 6:00 news sez Texas is moving into the Gulf so everybody can squeeze up. They're tired of being whined at for taking 2 days to get across in any direction

What he said... our yearly trip to Quartzsite takes a few mins to burn it all off

RE: New Suburban Stove Burns Rice, Looking for replacement.

Change the pots n' pans to those with thick bases to evenly distribute the heat and eliminate the hotspots, there are lots of them out there. Then turn the heat down...

RE: Replacing Xantrex Prosine 2,0 Recommendations

Hi wa8yxm, Yes. His home base is Montana. He is always grateful to receive "dead" inverters. Ok, who is KJINTF? Another member here? I do not think Xantrex authorized repair will touch it.For the parts.. :)

RE: Replacing Xantrex Prosine 2,0 Recommendations

There are a handful of people that attempt to work on these and guess where they get their parts? Blown units. I spent several hours calling all over the country but most these guys told me they essentially shotgun the units. I'll keep the Magnum.. Perhaps the question should be who has had theirs fixed vs. junking

RE: dam it?

Mine was about 3/8" lower than typical curbs in shopping centers. Not any more... it's now properly sanded and constantly auto-adjusting itself

RE: RVing w/ Pit Bulls

Most of he problems with dogs originates with the owners rather than the dogs.Agreed! We inherited our son-in-laws Pit when he was in Afghanistan, and ended up with him for several years.. The dog we didn't want because of the breed profiling, insurance company restrictions with CG's, etc. . He died way early but was by far the nicesest and most kid tolerant dog I've ever met; just don't get between him and his ball :) Obviously that makes no difference to breed restricted campgrounds, and when we're dog ready again must take that into account.

RE: Got me a little electrical issue

There are two different conversations going on here. one about D.C., and the other looking for an AC GFI. While the OP was hinting at AC, unless this thing was rewired, it's D.C. Assuming the OP has no experience with this stuff, I suggest taking the spare fuse (use a 10a temporarily) and systematically swapping them one by one as mentioned above. Sometimes you can see a open fuse link, sometimes not

RE: Replacing Xantrex Prosine 2,0 Recommendations

OP- my friend sent me a picture of his install. It's too close to see the shelf where your Prosine is so I don't know if it exists, but the Magnum is bolted to the right wall, it appears above the lowest point of your ATS, so you wouldn't lose the floor space

RE: Replacing Xantrex Prosine 2,0 Recommendations

I would contact ProSine and see if they have a repair service. Most failure are not that catastrophic. A handful of transistors. Good time to replace all the caps. Upgrade them to higher voltage and temp rating.Prosine are famous for being throw-away, and that's the problem. Magnum, unlike Xantrex are built to be serviced and parts are readily available. Guess why I now have a Magnum?

RE: What will happen?

Wish I had the opportunity to do it! Let me restate that...I had the opportunity, wish I would have acted on it. To those that offered "bud out"...I commend the OP for a willingness to give input. Our society needs more of that. :) Everyone stays at arms length these days. Disagree. If you come up to me and start offering unsolicited "input" then we won't get along too well. Our society needs less of people worrying about other people, and more of minding your own business.He asked for advice and got it. I see nothing unsolicited

RE: Replacing Xantrex Prosine 2,0 Recommendations

Haven't looked at the profile but that looks allot like the Journey 32T I helped install a Magnum 2012 into and it runs fine. I'll call and get some pix if interested... (Later) ah... Horizon 32, close enuf. I do believe that cabinet is open to the sub-basement and vented under the bed, yes? It's bigger than it looks but still needs help when running high charge or inverter loads for extended time

RE: Propane tank pigtail rupture

Thanks for the replies. What are the indicators that it could be the regulator? The regulator won't cause the line to rupture. The comment about "replacing the regulator" was just a "might as well replace it while you have stuff apart" (proactive / preventive measure.)not sure if I'd wholesale replace it, but keep it on board. There are a very few things that will ruin a trip, but dead regulator is up there at the top of the list

RE: What will happen?

"We would turn them away, and I know of many other parks that would turn them away as well." Be careful denying accommodations to anyone able to pay the charge. One of those kids could be a budding lawyer interested in federal lawsuits and say the reason was their age.I'd buy a ticket to that one,It'll get tossed out before lunch. Privates can do what they want. Are you aware that there are CG's that disallow ANYTHING that is not a Class A... Even the $600k+ Super-C ? IMO this idea hasnt been thought through and someone needs to reason logic with them. After that stay is USFS, State, etc. CG's, and its done

RE: What will happen?

Right off the top I don't think they've thought about the economics nor the ROI on this project. If this is just a project to do, then fine. But for $5000 you can buy an 80's something Class A ready to go and arguably in exactly the same mechanical shape; something that needs to get addressed regardless. And they won't get turned away anywhere nearly as much as building a love bus. At the end of the trip also stand a way better chance of recouping the investment.
