RE: Nasty, Nasty Electrical Issue

It is often easier to abandon the old and run new wire rather than investing a lot of time troubleshooting and repairing.

RE: Antenna not worth a "hill of beans"

My fixed omni-directional antenna gets 40 channels in my drive. The huge rotating and boosted antenna on the roof of the house gets about 45. I have never had reason to complain about my omni-directional antenna.

RE: Looking for a Mentor

Rookie Rver :C here! Looking for a full timer who wouldn't mind becoming a mentor to a "wanna be" full timer.... (private message me) Your mentor would be one person with unknown qualifications. Ask your questions on the forum and you can get answers from many people with unknown qualifications. :B At least with multiple responses the odds are one or two may be correct.

RE: Contacts and Cataracts

Having to get up way to early in their RV, and half asleep, who has put their contacts in after they had cataracts removed? Fess up. Fixed it for you since this is an RV forum.

RE: Cool Mods - Thread restored 10/18/2012

I was thinking of putting some sort of receiver on the REAR bumper of the TT to store the thing... I have one of these (similar anyway) which is inexpensive and easy to mount. we use ours for a bike rack. http://www.adventurerv.net/ultrafab-bumper-receiver-adapter-p-27575.html?gclid=CKu1hJPFy80CFceCfgodQJUAtw It won't hold a huge amount of weight but it works for what it's designed for and only about $20+ That will work right up until the time it rips the bumper off. An RV bumper is not intended to carry any additional weight. http://www.airforums.com/forums/attachment.php?attachmentid=145595&d=1321686984

RE: AC in bathroom wayyyy too cold.

I don't know anything about your unit but they do spec minimum square inches of vent area. Read the installation manual and be sure that you don't cut air flow too much.

RE: Problem with Counter Extension - Won't fold flat

I thought of doing this but after seeing the You Tube Video and it shows it not folding flat I decided against it. Wow, what a piece of junk. There are much better hinges available that do fold flat. I made my own using folding hinges and just assumed that a manufacturer would have used the same or similar folding hinges.

Did your water tank fall out?

RE: Connecticut closing state campgrounds after the 4th of July

Best way to get voters to approve new tax levees is to cut services.

RE: Problem with Counter Extension - Won't fold flat

Did the brackets fold correctly before you mounted them?Yes. Must be some sort of torque is being applied by the mounting, they should fold flat unless twisted or hitting an obstruction.

RE: Replacing dump valves

I go to Home Depot near work during lunch and they do not stock any ABS pipe or fittings. None! I know Home Depot sells it online.... Always been that way. Places that sell primarily to consumers only stock PVC. Places that cater to pros sell ABS and PVC.

RE: LED light installation with door side slide-out

You will get a little shadowing from the slide but will have plenty of reflected light off the awning.

RE: Looking at travel trailer and what suv/truck is Right

The Compass can not tow any travel trailer at all. It can only tow the very lightest of pop ups.

RE: Battery "jump packs"

Brand and model number? Mine came with a cord to plug into the vehicle accessory outlet for charging.

RE: Replacing dump valves

Either unbolt and rebuild the valves or cut the ABS pipe. You will not get the glued fitting off of the pipe without causing damage.

RE: Hummmmm

Was it humming? Must have been since that is the subject.

RE: Use home sewer cleanout as dump station?

If you ask, the question will probably be no, and here is why. You pay for water and pay for sewer, but only the water is metered. The sewer charge is based on the water meter. The concern of the municipality would be that they are losing out on a few dollars! Of course, we all know that we are filling our tanks and dumping water elsewhere but are charged for the sewer. So in reality it all evens out, but try to explain that to a government employee. :S

RE: Trailer ball height

Original OP here. Sorry I caused such a ruckus. I was referring to the top of the ball and the top of the socket on the trailer tongue. My wording was not correct. So if the truck is level and the trailer is level is the ball higher or lower than the socket without the wdh set up. If the ball us 1 " higher the truck settles much lower after the the tongue jack lowers takes the weight off it than if it is level with the top of the socket before the wdh is set. Thanks again for the info. The "socket" is called the coupler. I still can't figure out what you are actually asking. From the forum towing section, read this stickie; Weight Distribution (WD) Hitch --- How it Works and this stickie; Travel Trailer Hitch Set-up Procedure And the installation manual that should have come with your hitch.
