RE: What is this Solar Charge For?

It's so small I first thought it was an auxiliary charger for a cell phone. Maybe with an outlet on the dash. But with the 'battery accepting charge' notice, maybe it is a charger for your Chassis battery...at least all those I'm familiar with charge the chassis batt because often, the manufacturer doesn't add an auxiliary charger for it. It's mostly charged by the alternator. Mine covers nearly the entire top of the AC, and it's only 8 Watt. Useless.

RE: Moderator Alert!!!! Troll Warning now "redguard"

Say, Johnny, I've been retired for a while, but back when I was a working computer guru & consultant, I'd help web sites set their system up to block individual MACs. There are ways for the abuser to work around that of course but it takes time and money to do so and it's much more difficult then just inventing a new profile. Isn't that done anymore? Sorry, I didn't read all 12 pages so I don't know if you already answered this one.

RE: Removing vinyl graphics and restoring finish?

You're in Utah it seems from your profile. Not that much of a drive to go down to San Carlos, Mexico for stripe removal and painting. I've heard that the painters there are very good. I had my 37' Bounder done in Mazatlan. Removed all the vinyl stripes (which were all cracked and faded) and repainted them on, painted the entire bottom of the RV...all the basement compartment areas, wheel surrounds, front and rear bumpers, the mirrors, the steps, the trim going up to the roof on the very back, and the rear view camera assembly. Oh, they also washed and waxed the whole thing too. All for around $900. When I looked into buying the vinyl, it was over $3600.

RE: can not propane inside MH

I'm with the crowd that think that the LP Leak Detector (near the floor in the kitchen) is either Off or is well past it's life span. Of course, the LP Detector and the valve it controls will not operate if the batteries are too low.

RE: 3Amps

They'll last 5-7 days. If you've turned off the salesman's switches. And of course, you can just disconnect the ground cables (after the batteries are charged up by driving). No connection, no draw. All you have to do when you're ready to restart your trip is reconnect the grounds, push the salesman's switches, and reset the clock in the dash radio.

RE: Need recommendation for quality articulating LED TV mount

I just mounted a spare 32 Vizio in my guest bedroom. The Vizio weighs about 36 pounds. The bracket is rated up to 70 pounds. I wouldn't use this bracket in my rv as it wouldn't be rated for any decent dip or bump in the road. How much do you guys want to over engineer the weight rating to actual tv weight to accommodate any possible hard bumps. A frost heave sneaked up on me in Alaska once that would have been a good test. Once the arms are folded up against the backing board, I don't worry about it. Plenty of strength above the rating of the bracket as it's rating is for the full weight with the arm(s) extended. Naturally, I wouldn't drive around with the TV extended.
