RE: AM21N TV Tuner works great

well... a couple of points you guys missed. 1. It works during heavy rain. 2. I get a station that DirecTV does not broadcast, yet it is on the AM21 guide and can view thru the AM21. 3. I get all the sub-channels of a particular local station, and yes I know i could get this with the TV hooked to the OTA...but it is nice to have it all in one place....if you will.

RE: AM21N TV Tuner works great

seems like I've used the AM21 during rain fade? Using the AM21 requires a satellite connection during setup so the receiver can download the local channels for wherever you are. I believe that once that list has been loaded it doesn't really matter what happens to the satellite signal. My complaint with the AM21 was that it required a satellite connection in the first place. I don't watch OTA TV unless we're in a place where we can't get satellite so I was forever having to disconnect the AM21 so I could directly connect the antenna to the TV. Another issue with it is that the list of local channels DTV provides through the device are not necessarily all the channels in your area, but you can't add to their list. We have DNS service and hardly ever watch local channels; if we want local news or weather we use the internet. Eventually, I decided the AM21 was a couple of pounds of stuff I could be rid of and I tossed it. good info, I should have also said that use the AM21 at home with my DVR, not in the RV.

RE: Equilizer 4 Point Setup

The DW and I picked up our new baby today - a Wildwood 29QBSS. A huge improvement from our Z-1. The dealership did the hitch adjustment but the sway arms aren't level to the frame of the trailer. They are angled up from the hitch to the L brackets. This means that the sway arms aren't sitting flat on the L-brackets but at an angle. We got to the campsite tonight and I couldn't get disconnected because of the pressure. The site we are at isn't level so it is causing some issues getting the trailer disconnected. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l5TtNUxeFWc This is an installation video from Equilizer and the sway arms look level in the video but they don't say one way or the other. I told them when I was leaving that it didn't look right but they swore they installed it correctly. Thinking about it now as I type this, they didn't have any Equilizer displays up. All they had were the chain models. What say the experts on this forum? Does it sound like they didn't set it up correctly? Do I need to redo the hitch installation elsewhere -- or attempt it myself for that matter? Did you raise the tongue of the trailer before you tried to remove the bars? If you raise the trailer just the right amount, you can usually get the bars on or off with out the snap up bar or much effort. They don't have to be exactly level. But if the are way, off...like other said...readjust and you may need to add washers. If the tow vechile is really twisted compared to the trailer, that can sometimes cause a problem, take the easiet bar off and then vary the height ot the trailer to find the sweet spot to take the second one off.

RE: AM21N TV Tuner works great

Sounds like the model he has is "Hacked" ... Though I can not assist you in hacking, I do know there are folks out there who can re-write the card that is inserted in a DirecTV receiver so that it gets all channels, in some cases this includes PPV, without paying. They are called Pirates. Others do the same thing with Dish Network.. There is a constant battle between the Sat Providers and the pirates with changing codes and changing software to prevent this type of thing, but alas,,,, The battle continues. I recall several years ago (2006/7 forget which) there was a Pirate selling Coolsat 500 receivers with custom BINs (Binary File, or codecs) to enable one to receive Dish Network free. First: about a month later those turned into bricks (Dish made major changes the CS 5000 no longer can decode, hasnt enough computer in it) and 2: the seller left Quartsite in handcuffs. Be warned, if DirecTV discovers you are getting a paid service from them for free.. They Decide how much you owe them. So my advice: Do not brag about it. Geeezzzz..I have one, it works great ^^^^^not even close :h

RE: Dual 6V Battery Box

The One I Have It is real quality construction. Greg +1 Good box, tight fit for T-105's but otherwise perfect. Ron W. I would go for a box that has screws holding on the lid.

RE: Fithwheel air conditioning problem

if the temp in the trailer (air going into the ac) is 80 the output of the AC should be 20 degrees cooler or about 60 coming out of the vents

RE: how to turn off converter easily

For those that posted they have a breaker in the breaker panel for the converter. Be advised that almost ALL such breaker and converter hook ups include a 120 wall receptacle also. So, while there is 1 wire connected to the breaker, it is junctioned about 6 inches from the breaker with another feed circuit going to a wall receptacle by a wire nut. Good point....On my TT the second load tied to the pigtail wire on my converter breaker is the water heater electric element.

RE: how to turn off converter easily

Here's another thought: if you just plug in the trailer umbilical into the inverter and assuming you have typical RV appliances, you'll be supplying AC power to everything, including the microwave, the refrigerator AC heater, and the water heater AC heater. I have my Circuit breakers marked, all those items you listed stay off while using the inverter.

RE: out went 12" CRT TV and in came 24" LED but help.

instead of an inverter you can get a 12 volt to 19 volt power supply.. look around something like this....

RE: BATTERY LIFESPAN survey...

Near impossible to recollect the number of discharge cycles So........ Anyone gone ONE HUNDRED EIGHTY BOONDOCKING DAYS on the same battery? Doesn't sound like much unti you figure out this means twenty-six week long boondocking excursions or NINETY full weekends of boondocking. With or without recharging via solar panels or generator/converter But no power post 'tween charges A tween charge means plugging ino a power post on day two If you can with accuracy recollect actually receiving 180-days of charge discharges, for pofessional curiosity I am interested in learning. HOW MANY DAYS BETWEEN RECHARGES? FULL SIZE MOTORHOME/TRAILER? CAMPER? TYPE OF BATTERIES? COMMENTS? Not sure of how many dry camping days... - recharged every day, about 50? dry camping days over 7.3 years of battery life. - 2 x 6volts from Sam's Club - Energizer brand - Trailer - Batteries were just getting old, still working but lower capacity after 7+ years. Edit, thought you wanted battery life...should have read the question closer. ;)

RE: Installing inverter

If anyone has a simpler solution, I'm listening. A computer UPS would fix your problem something like this...... That would be cheaper and easier for your situation. Plug your sat. and TV into the UPS and when the power dips, the UPS internal batteries will handle the load until the generator catches up. You can buy these at stores like Best Buy also...

RE: *updated* New RV garage

Very nice! Question on the electric...I'm pretty sure you need a main disconnect at a sub-panel in a separate building. So the top center breaker slot where it is blank should be a 50a 2-pole breaker. Also I see 5 circuits but only wire leaving the panel so assuming you're not done wiring yet? I think it depends on the number of circuits, I had trouble understanding that code.

RE: *updated* New RV garage

i was under the impression you don't drive a ground rod on a detached subpanel??? A subpanel on a detached building needs its own ground...NEC
