RE: Roof Top Spot Light

Those are commonly called SCARE LIGHTS I think... My trailer has two - one on each side in the rear. Where we camp its neat to turn on to see if the bear outside is a BLACK BEAR or a BROWN BEAR... The BROWN BEAR needs a louder noise to make it run off I guess... The OP has a remotely aimable rooftop spotlight, not a "scare light".

RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

Although this thread can be informative, it is composed mostly of mundane maintenance items that have been performed. I wish that it could evolve into something about wildly creative and innovative approaches to resolving issues with our Class A MH's. Don't get me wrong, I understand the motivation for this thread and subscribe to it, but I often hope for more? Start a "Wildly creative and innovative" thread. This thread by its very subject is about the mundane day to day maintenance of our motorhomes.

RE: Better TV antenna?

Winegard's Sensar IV antenna plus their Sensar Pro power injector/amplifier is about as good as it gets for a mobile installation. If your existing antenna is a Sensar III, then the low cost Wingman add-on will update it to the Sensar IV specs. The Sensar IV and Wingman add-on are much more directional antennas than the Sensar III alone though, so finer tuning is required to maximize signal strength.

RE: Manatee state park in Chiefland,Fla

We were on site #66 last March, and found the park to be acceptable, but not as nice as some of the other FL state parks. The site separation was minimal, and the sand was difficult to keep out of our coach. Our site was on Magnolia Loop 2, and Magnolia loop 1 was undergoing a complete rebuild, so hopefully things have improved there. Cell service was quite weak, although our amplifier and external antenna did keep us well connected during our stay. In Chiefland, our favorite breakfast stop quickly became "Bett's Big T Restaurant", a former truck stop. Good food, large servings, friendly staff, and very reasonable prices made Bett's our morning go to spot when we didn't feel like fixing something ourselves. All in all, I'd say Manatee was a good place to visit, but I doubt we'll go out of our way to go there again. There are too many other FL SP's we haven't seen yet. Next spring, Rainbow Springs and Stephen Foster will be our two new FL state parks to check out, preceded by return visits to Alafia River SP and Midway NPS Campground in January.

RE: data Usage for full timers using wireless internet service.

With two laptops, two tablets, two smart phones, one smart TV, and one satellite receiver connected our Verizon hotspot, we usually come within a gig or two, over or under, of our 20GB $100/mo data plan. Overages are only $8/GB though, so it's not very painful when we do run over a bit.

RE: window 8.1 sucks for me

I am only going to install Win 10 on one test box after a few months to let the initial early adopter bugs get worked out. Installing it on any production boxes will depend on determining that I have full control over when automatic update downloads and installations occur. Lacking that, Win 10 is off the table.

RE: Anybody want to spend Christmas at Long Key SP?

Before jumping on this, read the site details. Site #30 at Long Key has a 28 ft maximum vehicle length restriction. Sebastion Inlet site #6 has a max 30 ft length.

RE: Sound insulation of doghouse

On our F-53 based coach, I removed the cheesy 1/4" aluminum/foam liner that was originally installed, at least what was left of it. I replaced it with "B-Quiet Hliner", a 1/2" thick thermo/acoustic foam with a reinforced aluminum skin on both the doghouse and under the driver and passenger side floors. According to the manufacturer, "It reduces engine noise in the interior of the vehicle and also reflects the majority of the heat from the engine." My before and after sound measurements showed about a 10dB reduction at 2,000 RPM stationary. On the road, we've also found a noticeable reduction in the temperature of the dog house after several hours of travel.

RE: Between Charleston SC & Savanah GA

SC's Edisto Beach SP is one of our favorites. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-D7dhkf_6-8I/VRAPm7BI9SI/AAAAAAAAsx8/fNN2v1AgwwI/s720-Ic42/2015-03-23%25252008.53.57.jpg width=500

RE: Ok,change in direction! Atlantic ocean in February(ish)!

Going by the averages listed on this site, The beaches from about Miami south are likely to be the most suited to comfortable swimming in February.

RE: Dentist pays over $50,000 to kill a Lion

I wonder how his clientele will take this? I know I would drop him if he was my dentist. On the the other hand some hunter's might find him a kindred spirit. It would be interesting to know. According to the TV news this evening, he's shut down his practice and gone into seclusion.

RE: Shower moisture removal in split-bath design

Split baths are a deal killer for us when we look at newer coaches, in part for the ventilation issue you mentioned. Our current coach has a power ventilated enclosed side bath that easily expands when needed. The bathroom door can be latched open to block off the hallway from the living area, and with the bedroom door also closed, the hallway becomes a convenient dressing area with a wardrobe, drawers, and a full length mirror. We really like this arrangement.

RE: Wobbly Winegard Dish

I too had this problem! It was completely fixed by using this Winegard Strut Kit sold only in New Zealand Phoned factory and they would not sell to me ?? Bought it here http://shop.coastalmotorhomes.co.nz/index.php?route=product/product&path=65_97&product_id=265 Best Fix Ever Don Can you post a photo or two of the kit installed? It appears that it could be duplicated with off the shelf components. Thanks!

Use the spacing that you used in your OP in your signature?

RE: escapees website

The Safari issue was reported on the Escapees Forum awhile ago. Travis Carr, the forum and website admin posted the following in part: "Browsers that connect by using SSL or TLS 1.0 will be rejected. This has affected mostly Safari users but any browser not configured to connect using TLS 1.1 or 1.2 will not be able to connect." "Due to having to be PCI compliant, there is no workaround. The end user must be using a browser that is compatible. It is not a problem we can "fix" on our end other than moving the store to another computer. Even then the store computer would still have to be PCI compliant." and: "Many Safari and some others users are able to fix the issue by clearing their cache, cookies, etc. I would give that a try and see if it helps resolve the issue." PCI compliant = Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard compliant

RE: Mail Hold--What do you do?

Before we switched to a more permanent RV oriented forwarding service, we had our mail forwarded to our daughter for 2 or 3 months at a time while we traveled. She would look it over and alert us to anything that might require more immediate attention than waiting for our return.
