RE: Gas Grill from Main Propane Tank: Is this right?

lordnorth... just thinking outside the box but I see an option B: Not sure if it will work for you, but it may possibly be less complex to do, take a look at this mod done for a Weber Q. http://www.dutchmenowners.org/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=806&d=1391815838 They removed the reg from the BBQ, but kept it and installed quick release connections on the BBQ and the reg, so they could quick release plug the hose directly into the BBQ using the reg on the RV and then if they wanted to run off the bottle again, they just quick release plugged in the reg and screwed in a bottle again. I did this mod for my Weber and all it cost me was a pair of quick releases, 1 hose, a collar, and some gas tape. Got the collar and tape at Lowes and the quick releases and hose from my local RV dealer. He wants to also be able to use the grill as originally intended, using the included regulator and hose pictured with a separate cylinder away from the RV. The setup he pictured will work fine, and will also give him the option of connecting an external cylinder if he wants to extend his stay somewhere without the need to fill the on board tank.

RE: Gas Grill from Main Propane Tank: Is this right?

I'm a little confused...but, as long as you don't have 2 regulators in the line, what you are showing should work great. Can't have a reg. on the grill, and a reg on the line. I assume you have a reg. on the main bottles... You can only have 1 regulator from the source (tanks) and the destination...ie, your grill. The "Extend-A-Stay" style 'T' adapter connects between the on board LP tank service valve and the on board regulator. The accessory port (same thread as the small 1 lb bottles) delivers high pressure LP to the grill regulator. He'll use an additional adapter to convert the small bottle port to a standard ACME thread for his existing grill hose/regulator.

RE: Gas Grill from Main Propane Tank: Is this right?

The simple answer is "yes", what you propose will work fine. I use the same 'T' adapter to fuel my grill, although my grill hose connects directly to the 'T' adapter, without needing the additional the ACME adapter.

RE: Added a remote fan plug

Cool! :B I use that same remote to control the power to our Dish satellite receiver. It works great for those times when the manual says to unplug it for 30 seconds to correct some issue.

RE: Apology to Wawaloam Campground

At a number of private campgrounds with visitor fees over the years, I've gone to the office and mentioned that we have an older adult guest coming just to visit with us for a couple of hours or to pick us up, and I'd like to pre-pay the fee for them. In nearly every case, the fee has been refused and where applicable, the requisite pass has been given to me or held for them.

RE: Waldo Florida Spped Trap

I'm not sure I understand your beef with the JP. Having the guilty/no contest pleas go to a clerk where they can pay their fines is a fairly common setup for larger traffic courts, rather than time wasting individual appearances before the judge. Both pleas are essentially the same for the purposes of this violation. If you wanted to present any potentially mitigating evidence, then you should have plead not guilty and waited for your court date.

RE: 2011-2014 Elantra and Ready Brake

Keep in mind the cable to the brake pedal does not have to be perfectly in line with the brake arm. It can be offset a few inches to either side.

RE: Water heater Bypass???

There's a brass check valve on the hot water outlet that prevents the cold water from flowing back into the tank when the bypass valve is in the bypass position. The check valve is visible in your second photo.

RE: Exhaust "plumbing"?

While you were doing that, I was noticing the superb weld quality as I removed my water heater. I wondered how those Amish workers weld without electricity. They wait for a lightening strike! :B

RE: Questions about Tractor Supply

ok they operate under the same parent company.Aswith quialiy inc country general etc. Tractor Supply picked up some of the store leases when Quality Stores, Inc. went bankrupt in 2002. There is no other relationship between them.

Exhaust "plumbing"?

I was working on rerouting the generator exhaust on my Landau today, to move it away from the Protect-A-Tow toad road crud shield. I had to laugh when I pulled off an extension and saw what the factory had used as a coupling. :R http://i.imgur.com/ich1krhl.jpg "border=0" "width=250" http://bit.ly/1jtQSidClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: What 1 Thing Should Every RVer Have

I have noticed a considerable number of tools and other very useful devices mentioned in this thread. However, without a very supportive, helpful, and understanding wife it little matters what may be in to tool box. Where would we find one of those for the "costs less than $10." the OP stipulated? :h :B I wonder if the OP has any intentions of coming back and enlightening us...

RE: Saugerties/Woodstock NY KOA and a warning.

Never set your GPS for the "shortest route". Set it for the "fastest route" instead. The shortest route will sometimes have you following the cows to the barn, while the fastest route will usually keep you on the better roads.

RE: For the converter experts...

Losing the 20 lb weight difference didn't hurt either. Maybe I can ease up on my diet now! :B

RE: For the converter experts...

To put a wrap on this thread, I installed the new PowerMax Boondocker PM4B-45 converter yesterday, and have been checking the voltage readings periodically since then. At first full power up after the initial no load/load voltage checks, the voltage kicked into boost mode at 14.67 volts for about 30 minutes before dropping into normal mode at 13.54 volts where it has remained since, with just minor variances of a tenth or two as the loads change. Since we're actively living in the motorhome, I don't know when or if I'll see it go into float mode at this point. All signs of the erratic voltage readings I saw with the OEM Magnatek have disappeared, and I think I detected a bit of a smile on the batteries. :W My thanks to everyone for their input!

RE: oil like substance dripping from television

It's liquid crystal material leaking from a crack in the display panel. It's not dangerous except to your wallet. It's just a matter of time before it fails. Repeating... There is NO fluid/liquid in a "Liquid Crystal Display". An LCD is made up of multiple layers of protective, electrode, polorizing, and reflective screens, laminated together with a layer of a crystal material that has both solid and liquid properties. Damaged displays sometimes show an internal separation that can appear to be fluid, but is nothing more than delamination. Once again, "There is NO liquid in an LCD."

RE: Class A - Why so limited windows?

I don't think we're missing much of the view in our Class A. Our 34' gasser has 14 windows, counting the two piece front window as one. Our living area 30" deep slide has two large windows and two small windows.

RE: Internet access and networking

We use a Pepwave Surf Mini "On-The-Go" router/repeater that also supports our cell based data plan using either our cell modem or MiFi. All of our WiFi connected devices are connected to the Pepwave, which uses the cell data service while we're underway or in a park with poor or no WiFi service. When a park does have acceptable WiFi (Yes, there are a few!), I connect the Pepwave to it with just a couple of mouse clicks and a password entry if required, and we're good to go with the cell service still available as a fallback. None of our devices need to be reconfigures or changed in any way.

RE: oil like substance dripping from television

Is it an LCD tv? There is a small amt of liquid in these but if it was leaking, you would notice the picture going bad. Capacitors going bad can leak, but not very much. There is no actual "liquid" in an LCD (Liquid Crystal Display). The screen is made up of crystals that have both solid and liquid like properties. They can not leak in the liquid sense.
