RE: TV gone bust ... Replacements?

I went to Best Buy and bought a 32" Samsung LED/LCD for the living room and a 19" Samsung LCD for the bedroom. Nothing special.

RE: Wheel Bearing

Assuming you have the Dexter EZ Lube axles, you don't just add a little grease every once in a while. You follow Dexter instructions and purge the old grease out while inserting new grease. EZ Lube video The grease actually goes to the rear bearing first before traveling out thru the outer bearing.

RE: Dish Receiver burn-up

When I bought my Dish vip211k several years ago, Dish recommended using an external hard drive powered by 120 vac. And not to use one powered only by the USB port. Even so, the vip211k does get pretty warm when left on for extended periods.

RE: Questions on installing second AC

Look next to that bedroom vent/skylight and see if there is something that looks like a blank cover for an electrical box. Remove that cover and see if there are electrical wires there. If so, you are probably good to go for electrical connections. If no existing wires I don't know how you would ever get them there.

RE: A/C tripping the breaker

Make sure the screw holding the wire is tight. A loose wire can cause heat that can cause the breaker to trip. If wire is tight, pull the breaker out and go to home improvement store, hardware store, or electric supply and get a new one. I had one on my A/C start tripping several years ago. Replaced it and never tripped again. They can go bad.

Sounds like a fun, and interesting, trip. Here's to hoping you have great weather.

RE: How many amps to run AC

30 amp service will not be a problem.....as long as you do not run too many other things on AC at the same time such as microwave, water heater, hair dryer, etc. If you trip the breaker, just turn something off and reset the breaker. I can run my 15K A/C on 20 amp service as long as I do not run much of any thing else.

RE: Dish Tailgator Owners/Users

Be VERY careful when calling DISH support! I'm a full timer and when I call to have DISH change my "service Area" 8 times out of 10 they end up screwing with my billing address and then I have issues. I end up having to call a 2nd time! Their overseas support team still have some learning. Not a full timer, but have changed my "service address" many times and have never had that happen.

RE: State Park destruction in Michigan's UP

Since we live in the southern end of tornado alley, we are well aware of how violent the storms can be. The first thing I do when arriving at an RV park or campground is find out if there is a designated storm shelter. Some in storm prone areas do have them. If not, I look to see where the nearest sturdiest building is located. This is often a concrete/cinder block restroom or shower building. If there is no other option, I find out where the nearest big box store such as Walmart, Home Depot, or similar is located as they typically have designated "safe" areas for their employees and customers. With storms in the area we monitor the TV and radar apps on our phones so we know what to expect. Staying in the RV with a severe storm approaching is the last thing to do. In a car or truck is very little better but with advance warning, at least you may be able to move out of the path to a better area.

RE: Slideouts not going out

Are the slides hydraulic? When you hit the switch and the slide(s) start to move out and then click and stop, if you wait a few seconds and hit the switch again, do the slide(s) start to move again? If so, it is most likely the infamous auto reset circuit breaker problem. The click is the breaker opening. You may hear another click shortly afterward of the breaker closing, at which time the slides should work again. A common problem, and a cheap fix. The breakers sell for less than $10 at RV stores and auto parts stores. Look for something like this near your hydraulic pump, assuming your slides are hydraulic. Amp rating should be printed on the side.

RE: Dish Tailgator Owners/Users

I agree it is the receiver, not the Tailgater that "goes to sleep". The Tailgater simply reacts to commands from the receiver. The receiver would do the same with a tripod mounted dish. However mine does not go to sleep until a month or so has passed unused. If I use it at least once a month it remains active.

RE: Table & Chairs

Our 35' 5er does not have tiedowns for the dining chairs. And in over 20,000 miles have never moved.

RE: Insurance for others for my RV?

You best call your own insurance carrier rather than rely on answers you get here.

RE: FCA under investigation

Amazing how people here know all the behind the scenes info and can so quickly determine the merits of the case. :S

RE: JT Strongarm installation - easy, but customer service?....

.............. I only did the front arms and still have the ones for the rear that I may do in the future. Here is an easy way to attach the rear stabilizers without any welding to the frame. 2" x 2" sq tube cut at 45 degrees on each end. Very sturdy. http://i906.photobucket.com/albums/ac270/BB_TX/Camper/JTs/100_1137-1.jpg width=600

RE: JT Strongarm installation - easy, but customer service?....

It has been 7 years since I installed mine. And I do remember the instructions being less than ideal. But I read all the info I could find on the web and did not need to call them. But in doing the research, I did find multiple people speak about how good their tech support was. Things must have changed. I think they were bought by Lippert after I installed mine.

RE: Bike Rack mount

Doesn't that setup constrict your turning radius? I have a long bed and can easily carry 3 adult bikes on the pin box with no cab clearance problems. Might could get a 4th up there and still clear but have not tried it. Yet.

RE: Tell me about Ouray, Co

That is some beautiful country around Ouray. But if you are not familiar with the approach on 550 from the south, read some previous discussions here.

RE: Petit Jean SP

X3. Was there for the first time last year and loved it. Planning to go back. And the antique auto museum just down the road was a great extra.
