RE: 12 volt questions

I don't see a converter, only a power distribution panel. The converter may be behind the panel, or maybe underneath it. I found mine on line after getting the model number. http://www.rveparts.com/wfco-converter-wf8955an-pec-55-amp-power-center-rv-parts/

RE: 12 volt questions

battery disconnect, turns off the house side from batteries it does NOT separate house and chassis batteries that is done by the charge 'Isolater' , which is either a diode base device (big finned heat sink with heavy wires on it) or a relay controlled by the ignition switch Thanks, I know about the diode/ relay isolator as I replaced the one under the hood of my former "B". Now that disconnect explains why my batteries ran down as I had the switch off thinking it separated the coach from house batteries.

12 volt questions

1. Is this Convertor OK? http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad222/GA_Boy/Coachman/MVC-471F_zpsyssoperp.jpg http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad222/GA_Boy/Coachman/MVC-472F_zpsk4oyuahq.jpg 2. What is this Black thing to the lower left of my thumb? 3. What is the loose yellow connector for? I noticed the wire is loose. http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad222/GA_Boy/Coachman/MVC-469F_zpsw7q0zqjy.jpg 4. What is the 5amp fuse for? Holding in hand. http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad222/GA_Boy/Coachman/MVC-468F_zpscpkkdbh3.jpg 5. I guess this (bottom one)switch connects/separates the coach battery from the house batteries. Right or wrong http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad222/GA_Boy/Coachman/MVC-470F_zpsp7efplfm.jpg 6. Would it be wise to install a quick disconnect when parked and not used for a few months? Without you having to copy and paste just use the numbers 1-6. Thanks

RE: Rust between walls

Thanks for the replies. Replace and silicone--------BTW I use SS screws on occasion. More questions later on Electric after I take a few pictures.

Rust between walls

I removed my Cable connector from the outside wall to check on the feasibility of adding second one for my DISH. I was surprised to see rust on the inside threads of the three screws securing it. Question-----------could this be due to moisture/sweating between the walls or from a leak? OR BOTH? There is no evidence that it has leaked looking around the inside behind cabinets, etc.

RE: Hope this isn't anyone from the forum

You all have it wrong. It's easy to tell by looking at the picture that: 1. Truck and camper was going 73.4 MPH in the hammer lane when a 18 wheeler passed him on the right going 84 MPH. This caused a left side sway in the trailer. 2. Milliseconds later another 18 wheeler in the opposite direction going 71.3 MPH causing a right hand sway resulting in progressively larger sways until it turned over. 3. The third 18 wheeler Had to stop because he was laughing too hard to safely drive. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

RE: Winwguard Batwing Antenna

Bill.sattelite, My wall plate did have 12V run to it. Now for the question. Does the antenna have the AMP ot does the Wall Plate have the AMP in it. Mine that I used in the 5th wheel kinda looked like this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/36DB-CABLE-TV-ANTENNA-INLINE-BOOSTER-COAX-SIGNAL-AMPLIFIER-COAXIAL-VIDEO-AMP-HD-/282073601786 Gentlemen, I really want to thank you all for the help. If I were 30 years younger I would maybe remember some of this stuff. Here is something similar to what I will use in the "C". http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad222/GA_Boy/Coachman/MVC-461F_zpsawjvebv4.jpg

RE: Winwguard Batwing Antenna

My mistake, maybe. When he said he had a III, I assumed it was amplified and therefore needed power. Your antenna seems to be unamplified so doesn't need power. Joe, thanks for your input----------------in all fairness I must admit that I thought I had a III. Maybe not but it came stock on my 2010 "C".

RE: Winwguard Batwing Antenna

Why would you remove power from the batwing? You just asking for worse reception. Yes, you need the wallplate thingamabob. That is why I'm asking---------I was not sure how it worked. I do have an in-line 120V amp that I used in the 5th WheelThanks

RE: Winwguard Batwing Antenna

Billsattelite, I want to eliminate the wall plate with the tiny button. I disconnected and color coded all the Coax and ran a continuity test. I discovered that I actually have two coax going to the bedroom. One via a split-er from the Cable outside and one from the Wall plate Thingamobob. I want to re-do all that and put in A/B switches so I can have Cable, Dish, and/or Batwing to either or both TV's depending on my situation and needs. I removed the transfer stuff from my 5th wheel when I sold it and kept the switch panel that I made. Having said all that do I still need the wall plate Thingamabob to power the Batwing or can I purchase another amplifier if needed? Thanks

Save your Dryer LINT and mix it with Petroleum Jelly and store in Medicine Bottle.

Winwguard Batwing Antenna

Does my III have an amplifier built in? If so, where does it get power? I will get the UHF add-on to make it a IV.

RE: Why do you prefer your rig?

Most folks purchase a camper to suit their needs. Maybe not the first camper but the second one for sure. We have had every type camper except a pop-up and have changed according to growing family and depleted family. 1 P'up cover 1 Station wagon 2 TT's 2 Slide in's 2 "A" 1 5th Wh. 1 "B" 1 "C" The small "C" will probably be our last.

RE: Favorite tire pressure gauge?

I've used one similar to this for 60 years. Not a made in China one. https://www.amazon.com/Milton-S-976-Dual-Chuck-Service/dp/B000CONUJM

RE: My $20 "Sherline"

A 27mm/1-1/16 bore will give you a reading of minus (-) 6 pounds per 1,000. Mine gauge reads 994# per 1,000 If memory serves. Anyway you did a nice job. Marvin Actually, the ram area is 1.062 x 1.062 x .7854 = .8866. So your 1000# gauge reading is really 886#. You are correct-----that's what I get for taking someone Else's Math. A 1-3/16" ram would get you closer to 1:1. Marvin

RE: Positive experience

I would have filled the tank the rest of the way with diesel and carried on. One gallon of gas in 30+ gallons of diesel isn't going to do squat. Happens to a truck or two every year in my fleet. I think the shop kind of screwed you not telling you to just fill the tank with diesel and keep it full for the next couple hundred miles or so. I agree, I wouldn't give it a second thought.
