RE: Tire covers & Wiper/Mirror Covers

I got away from the vinyl tire covers and went to the ones that I attached to the ourside of the MH...The tires are shaded with sunblock material, but don't have the heat that the vinyl ones keep on the tire..here is an example...mine are white.. Author is "Mentor" about 3rd message down

RE: Satellite Director

I think maybe I need to phrase question a little better...Satellite Director is a phone app to use to help determine line of site for your satellite and once in a while I pull into a site and it maybe marginal for a satellite. I then will try to use Sat. Director to determine best parking location so that I can determine if my winegard will be able to see. However, when determining which Directv sat to find there will be several listed for each...ie there maybe 2 or 3 sat. for 101...and to use the Director we have to check a sat. My question thus is which ones?

RE: Satellite Director

Ours comes in on 101,110 and 119. This is the house. MH has auto Winegard dish and switches to different birds depending on station selected. It will depend on your package. Mine (in MH) uses the same on Winegard, but several 101 for instance.

Satellite Director

For those using both SD and DIRECTV, what satellite numbers do you search for use in West if that makes a difference

RE: No power to jacks

Solved the issue... You know how sometimes you will read something and it actually hits the brain differently...that was the problem... I kept reading chassis battery and thinking house battery, and I had taken picture of house battery cable configuration, so knew it was right... HOWEVER...it finally clicked that the chassis battery was the chassis battery, and lo and behold I had missed a wire...hooked it up an woola.. :S .works thanks to everyone for their input...

RE: No power to jacks

National connected the Leveling PUMP power thru the Coach Battery disconnect. That means the touchpad will light up, but the actual power to the pump will not be there if the Coach batteries are not turned on. When these type things come up---IF the Jacks worked prior to the battery change out, then when you changed the batteries you must have missed a battery connection or mis-wired a connection at the batteries. Doug The Jacks worked last time we used them, but didn't deploy in the 5 months of storage. When I changed batteries, I took pictures so that I would not forget what went where..all accounted for....The touch pad doesn't light up, nor is there power to it nor the jacks

RE: No power to jacks

Check near the batteries for a large circuit breaker that feeds the hydraulic pump. It may have been hit accidentally while changing the batteries. It may look similar to this one: http://i.imgur.com/QfQ0lyrl.jpg width=250 any idea of location that it may be found?

RE: No power to jacks

They are hydraulic

RE: No power to jacks

Just changed batteries. Look to see if you missed hooking up power wire to jacks. I have about 4-5 wires to hook up to batteries ,it could be easy to miss one if it fell out of view while hooking them up. Let us know what you find. checked and have them all hooked up

No power to jacks

RE: Mouse moat for RV's in storage

Clicky (There are no points awarded for posting that this won't work on uneven ground) We used things like this (stainless) in the food manufacturing industry for doors,etc.

Changing batteries

For all of you that do your own work, how do you go about changing them without getting battery acid on your clothes. Last time I did it required about 12 patches on my pants

RE: Financing

Just look around at the RV's that you would like to have...then you will know the price and weight requirements, and then you can look at the trucks necessary to pull it...That way you will know your needs "BEFORE" acquiring anything...That way you will have the info to make a decision...:C

RE: Balance MH tires in Surprise AZ.

Thanks for the replies...Tires are a year or so old from Les Schwab in Boise, but never found them here...noticed a little wear on the outside of passenger fron tire and want it looked at...Will call around... Unusual wear can be an alignment problem. Let us know what you find out. Might be better to find a truck tier place. Bill Wear was from alignment...Camber they said that on fixed axle couldn't really be fixed...at least cheaply...Recommended tires rotated and balance each time I see a little side wear particularly on passenger front..
