RE: Blu-ray/DVD player on RV 12 volts?

Maybe. Depends on the DVD power input circuit. If it designed to take more than 12 volts it should be okay. It costs a little to make the power input tolerant of higher voltages and who knows what they did.

RE: Levelers Problem

I don't think it will help with this problem, but if you don't have the Kwikee Level Best manual you can download it HERE from my Dropbox. If it wants you to join, just click on the page somewhere and the Join box should go away and you can go to the upper right hand corner and click on Download.

RE: Light bulb ohms. What the heck is going on here?

As stated above tungsten has a positive temperature coefficient. It is 0.004403. If you are really interested, you can use the simple formula on this SITE to calculate the increase in resistance as the bulb filament heats up.

RE: Question about PMBs

I thought i recalled that the post office required either PMB or # as a prefix to the box number. I took a look at the site referenced above by mike-s and one or the other is required. We always used the # sign. From what other posters have said about using no suffix, the PO must not enforce the requirement. From the site: "The Delivery Address Line is the standardized address of the private company. Private companies offering mailbox rental services to individuals and businesses are considered commercial mail receiving agencies (CMRA). Addresses on mail received at a CMRA must adhere to specific requirements in the use of their private mailbox number (PMB). Mail sent to an addressee at a CMRA must include either the PMB identifier or the #, followed by the appropriate private mailbox number. Use of any other identifier is prohibited. Either a three line or four line address format can be used with a CMRA address and the PMB or # identifier, with the exception noted below. Where the CMRA's physical address requires its own secondary address element, the PMB or # address must follow the specific format rules stated below. It is not permissible to combine the secondary address element of the mailing address for the CMRA and the CMRA customer's private box number."

RE: Wiper blades

I went on line here TRICO to get the part number for the blade, not just the rubber refill and got the blades at the local AutoZone. Open the box that says "Cars and Light trucks" select RV then select your motor home maker, model, and model year.

RE: Parking Motorhome on limestone/gravel

I used the thin flexible cutting boards under my tires any time I was parked for any extended length of time. Got them at Walmart but they must be available in other stores. They are cheap, light weight and easy to store.

RE: Full timing in a class A gasser

Based on my 11 years of full timing I would not say that most full timers have DP motor homes. Some do but most have gas motor homes. About half of full timers have 5th wheels. I full timed for a year in a 30 ft gasser with no slides and 10 years in a 35 ft gasser with two slides. It worked fine. I was able to do my own oil and filter changes along with grease jobs. We had a CCC of 2800 pounds and would like to have had 3500 pounds. You can see the definition of CCC HERE, and the newer OCCC HERE. Scroll down to "2009 New weight label" and download the pdf file. To get CCC subtract the weight of water you will carry and the weight of the people you will carry from the OCCC.

RE: cleaning out black tank and toilet bowl

We had a toilet brush right next to the toilet. Our toilet was plastic so the brush got used a lot. We had a bowl cleaner that was used once in a while. Not really needed often. The black tank is never going to be fresh. All we ever used for 11 years was water and whatever toilet paper my wife liked. Not septic safe, not RV, just whatever.

RE: netflix or amazon

According to what I have read, the star ratings are a combination of the old user ratings (now discontinued) and what Netflix thinks I might like. See HERE

RE: netflix or amazon

I have both. I watch them on a Samsung smart TV. Amazon's offerings are much more limited than Netflix. The movies in general are also poorer. Also a 3 star rating on an Amazon movie is often the equivalent of a 1 star on Netflix. I think that may be because it is more difficult to rate a movie on Amazon. Many of Amazon's movies are rated by only a few people while Netflix's are often in the 100s or 1000s. There have been several movies on Amazon produced by independents that I couldn't watch past the first 15 minutes or so and they were rated at 4 or 5 stars, apparently all by friends of the producer (10 or 15 or so). If the Amazon streaming service didn't come with my Prime membership I wouldn't have it.

RE: Fridge leaking water or something

The hole in the insert is to limit the flow so the water has time to evaporate in the outside tray.

RE: What do you do for WIFI on the road

yeah Im more looking for some kind of connecting equipment i can use via a cellular network instead of a location that has wifi I know there use to be a usb device that you could connect to the internet via cellular but cant remember what its called and cant find it via google Used to be called an aircard but now more often a USB modem. It will plug into a USB port on the laptop. I used a Verizon USB modem and plugged it into a Cradlepoint router because I had two laptops and wanted to have a home network. You can also get a MiFi hotspot from Verizon.

RE: Extend a stay

Hi All Anyone have a 2001 Winnebago Advencher that put an extend A Stay on it, the stranded Ex ta stay in the stores and on web are not compatible, need help Tx The Extend a Stay Tee fits between the tank and regulator. The regulator has to be unscrewed from the tank, the Tee screwed into the tank and the hose screwed onto the Tee. With the regulator on the Tee is it too long and hits the compartment wall? If so you may have come up with an L fitting on the tank or Tee.

RE: Pex Tubing

They did at least as far back as 2004 - that is what was in my 2004 Sightseer. We made several trips back to the factory for various reasons including the Grand National Rally in 2009 and a windshield replacement in 2012. Took factory tours every time we were there and PEX was all I saw being installed.

RE: Colorado I-70 snow

It's sure not predictable. We have relatives and grandsons in towns east of Denver and have seen I-70 open in Dec/Jan and closed in April/May. Sometimes they can make it here (western slope) for the holidays and sometimes not.

RE: RV on Netflix

I bought RV because it wasn't on Netflix...and now it is. Oh well, $5. SNIP Me too - way back when it came out on DVD. Paid more than $5 though. Enjoyed it and watched it a few times since then and still enjoyed it.

RE: Coach Captain Seat Reupolster

We reupholstered all of our motor home furniture including the captains chairs. We did the job ourselves. We used Ultra Leather Plus @ $19 per yard. The Plus has better abrasion resistance than the standard. I removed the existing fabric and my wife used that as patterns. Her small sewing machine she had in the motor home (we were full timers) couldn't handle the job and in AZ we couldn't find a machine that would handle it. She said she wished she had her machine that was in storage and I remembered some older machines in a junk store down the street from the RV park and I bought a White made in 1932 for $15. All metal parts and worked great. You have to be careful buying Ultra Leather - there are a lot of knock offs that are a much lower quality. They play games with the spelling of the name.

RE: Water Softener System

I have the FloPuir Mark 8000 SEE HERE Cost is $182 and includes shipping if bought from the site above. Regeneration is done with a box of common table salt. It is similar to others like the "On-The-Go" water softener which is the one Camping World sells I believe. Both are 8000 grain units which means they will last longer than those with smaller numbers without requiring regeneration. Some folks use "Water Sticks" but the biggest one of those I have seen is only 1500 grains. The 10,000 grain units will last even longer before needing regeneration. I didn't have room for the bigger 10,000 grain model so I got the 8000 grain one. In AZ where we spent most of the winter the water hardness is about 50 grains per gallon. That means that an 8000 grain unit will soften about 160 gallons before needing to be regenerated. Since we use about 13 gallons of water per day we have to regenerate every 12 days or so. In our home in CO we have a water hardness of 20 GPG, there the softener will last about a month.
