RE: Didja ever...

Yes, when my wife picks the color, I sometimes think "what was SHE thinking"!

RE: Pismo Coast Village timeshare

All time shares are a terrible financial deal for the buyer. You will never get your money back out of it, it will cost you $$ every year whether you use it or not. Most time share owners regret ever making the purchase. If you buy, do yourself a favor and look at the resell market, you can buy for pennies on the dollar. x2 "All"? Wrong. Purchased a week at San Luis Bay Inn near this campground. The one bedroom condo, book able any week of the 52, originally sold for $18,000. We purchased ours for less than $5,000.00 eight years ago. We have been offered double that, have maintenance fees of less than $500.00 a year (a comparable condo in the area would rent for $300.00 / night). And is across the street from the beach. We use it every year, have traded to Hawaii and have no regrets. Now, let me tell you about the other timeshare at Stalion Springs that we purchas on eBay for $30.00. Yes, thirty dollars.

What are the ramifications of removing it:h Eliminating overload protection and the possibility of melted wires and possible fire.Won't the onboard fuse panel blow a fuse before anything fries ?? No. The dash fuses only protect the circuits they serve. Bypassing this breaker would negate protection of the circuit it serves, possibly the main battery feed.

RE: Popping breaker

Can't count the number of people I have read about that think a dryer plug in the garage can be used for an RV. They exchange the dryer receptacle with a 30-Amp RV receptacle, not realizing they are playing with 220 volts. Did you use an existing three wire receptacle?

RE: Atwood water heater won't light. High pitch sound.

The high pitch sound could be a defective high voltage transformer that creates the spark for ignition. In this case, the board will need replacement.

RE: analog or digital TV at camp grounds

QAM is actually digital. Wikipedia QAM (Television) When staying at a park with QAM channels, I get HD. Usually, only the Over the Air channels (ABC, NBC, CBS, FOX, PBS) are in HD. Yes, I know that, further I actually understand how it works, including the math behind QAM and NTSC-VSB (the old Analog TV system) and many other communication systems. What I was asking is his park has a block decoder. That is rather then just translating one QAM "channel" to send to the TV (like the converters those parks have to provide) a block decoder is programed to translate various QAM channels into analog channels Of course they have to pick and chose which channels get translated and which get left behind. The entire point in digital TV, be it QAM (cable) or ATSC (broadcast) is that you can get more "channels" then one in a "channel", so when you block translate, you only get something like 1/3 or 1/4 of the channels, and none of then HD Yes, a converter and we were able to choose what channels our system has. A total of 60.

RE: Suburban Water Heater Issue

Atwood water heaters only have one thermostat, don't know about Suburban but I suspect it only has one also. Does it try to light the gas???? Need more information other than "it doesn't work". Suburbans have a separate tstat for gas and electric, a total of two.

RE: Hot Water Pressure

If the pressure switch on your water pump is adjusted properly, the pump won't pulsate as much. My three new trailers all needed to be adjusted and afterwards, the pumps didn't pusate on lower flow.

RE: Camp Chef MVP Grill

Ron - the typical Camp Chef MVP grill is two or three 10,000 BTU burners. The typical Weber Q is One 10,000 BTU burner. Like comparing the mpg of a Volkswagen bug to a fully loaded F-350 V-10. OP - go ahead, buy your camp chef, remove the regulator and try it. If it works, fine. If not, hook it directly to a propane tank and grill away. Been there, Done that. Actually, the MVP grill is only available in a two burner model. I have one and love it. I also purchased the optional grate so I can use large pots on it.

RE: analog or digital TV at camp grounds

Most campgrounds have the analog, but those that have had digital forced on them by the cable companies give you a box and you use a remote and tune to analog channel 3......I'm sure the cost of that to the campground will be passed on ...... We just went through this at my park. Charter did not charge us for the 195 boxes they gave to us so no cost passed along. What was a PITA was having to hand out those boxes and ask for a deposit. And it took one of my employees just about 6 hours a day to Install those boxes. We canned the digital system and went with the Quam system. No more boxes but analog signal and full time residents can not get enhanced services such as HD, movie channels.

RE: Toaster Oven Recommendation Wanted

Bought a Eurpro convection at a thrift store for $16.00. Works great. It has a curved back that allows a 12" pizza pan to fit which is a nice feature.

RE: update to Prime Rib question.

Seared my 5# in the Komodo ceramic egg at 600 degrees on each side for 5 minutes. Reduced temperature to 300 degrees and cooked for 2 hours u till internal temp was 120. Rested for 30 minutes under foil. Perfect medium rare with a nice smokey flavor from the lump charcoal.

RE: water heater question

Why do you want to heat hot water? I will never understand that What I will never understand is ridiculous replies such as this. Seriously? I mean, really?

RE: Propane powered AC?

In the 70's, there was a combination roof-air/generator available which was propane fueled.
