RE: Fifth wheel 12 volt trouble shooting

Time to get out the voltmeter. You have one, right?

RE: Engine Block Heater

EB heaters take a lot of power.. 1000w or more. Be careful.

RE: use of interior portable heater during storage

I would use one only if: - I'm around to check it almost daily - I'm taking camping trips in winter and need the coach to be ready to use - There's enough heat to protect all the lines (unlikely) and the power it draws doesn't heat up any extension cords (likely) - I've drained the lines

RE: Composting Toilet

I think you need to turn down the attitude a little. I think you have had some good responses... He apparently also wants a personal written response.

RE: Need help choosing a pure sine wave inverter

Sorry. I forgot to include that the inverter has to be hard wired.All my inverters have been hard-wired.

RE: Any truth to this

Go by the truck's ratings. That's all you need to know. Everything else is BS.

RE: dual pane windows

RE: IP address conflict

This was driving me crazy on my Win 7 laptop until I turned off (un-checked) IPv6 in the properties for the wireless connection. Haven't had it pop up since.I'll see if that helps. Thanks! And thanks to everyone for chiming in. Oh, and the SSID of my hotspot is 'Virus', so I don't think too many folks will be trying to use it. Sometimes I'll change it to "McDonald's" and go in a store and see what happens. Well, not really.

RE: Borrego Springs, California

RE: Need help choosing a pure sine wave inverter

I've run a Prosine (excellent),a Samlex (decent) and now running a Cotek 4kw inverter. It's only been in a couple weeks, but so far seems fine.

RE: IP address conflict

The reason I suspected Bluetooth is that this phone has "Bluetooth tethering". It says "Tap to share this phone's internet connection." As for the number of users, I can select from 1 to 10 users. The phone is set at 5 - I may have done that. I've never had more than one connection in use. Will setting it back to 1 help? I'm running Android 5.0.1. I don't know (how do I) know if any devices have a static IP?

RE: IP address conflict

Thanks. I'll shut it down now.. sun just came out so time for a walk.

RE: IP address conflict

It's an HTC hotspot via Verizon. I have never touched any settings except the Name of the hotspot and its password. On the Advanced Mobile Hotspot config page, LAN settings: (from the top) Local IP IP address: some numbers Subnet mask: some numbers LOCAL DHCP DHCP (check box checked) Starting IP some numbers OTHERS Reset to default settings ============================= Stopping the Bluetooth services seems to help. I tried turning them back on and I immediately got the error. As for anyone trying to connect to me, that's highly unlikely. I have one neighbor 100' from me.. that's it. And a pretty strong password.

RE: IP address conflict

Done all that ipconfig stuff. I guess you explained it well..I wouldn't know. :) As I said, it's just my single computer on my hotspot. There's no network here, and there certainly isn't any network administrator I'm supposed to contact!

RE: Fixed my neighbor's slides this morning - felt great

I look up slide repair on youtube.com and find the exact mechanism we were dealing with. Now I know exactly what we should have done. Unfortunately, we had already disassembled the entire motor / gearbox assembly.Hate when that happens. Anyway.. good job!

RE: 6v vs 12v battery question

"(made up number)" Yes, but he could have at least made up a credible one. My goodness....Oh for shame..

RE: IP address conflict

No, I get these errors randomly when using my computer online. The only device "online" is my HTC phone's hotspot, to which my Dell is connected via wifi.

RE: IP address conflict

Actually, I may not have it solved quite yet.. I just got one. Maybe I'll just get fewer of them. I wonder if this is something new.. like from some update...?
