RE: Carbon Monoxide from Furnace

A heat exchanger is checked by putting a smoke bomb into the burner area. You then look into the plenum and if any smoke is seen it is scrap metal.

Can't answer until you tell us what converter you have.

RE: Keeps kicking breaker..

Breaker or GFCI? Sounds like it could be a ground fault issue.

RE: Good Sam Membership problems...

{tpc} your complaints are valid and have come up before. Things should not be like they are. Unfortunately, I don't know the solution. Hopefully it is just growing pains of a rapidly expanding corporation.

RE: Attitudes

...the search feature sucks.... ...The search feature doesn't suck, it's operator error.... Agreed 2oldman, I wish Google had as good a search engine as this forum. Best I've seen.

RE: Sorry Sam Assistance

Melno5o, I sent you a PM about an alternative service.

RE: What the #@!! happened??

You need to open the RV electrical panel and using a screwdriver make sure all connections are clean and tight.

RE: Park Manager & Lot Sales Director for Georgia Campground

Doesn't interest me but I commend the OP for providing a detailed job description. Often job descriptions are very vague and confusing about what is involved.

RE: LED Lights "And This Is A Verbatim Quote"

I understand the original point. It is false advertising to advertise the LED as 25w if it consumes 6w. If it actually was 25w it would be blinding bright. The LED market now is the wild west and is virtually unregulated. Sellers can make any claim they want and most consumers don't know the difference. Eventually LEDs will become commonplace, consumers will learn to compare lumen, and the market will get rid of the scammers. Here are the typical wattage ratings for incandescent lamps; 1034 = 27/8w 1156 = 27w 1157 = 27/8w 3157 = 27/8w Based on this info and the advertised 25w of the LED my guess is that there would be no improvement in light output. In fact it may be worse in a tail/brake light due to the concentration of the LED. When an LED is placed in a fixture designed for incandescent the LED usually does not have the reflectivity inside the fixture like an incandescent. Often an LED replacement tail/brake gives a glow only in the center of the lens.

RE: Need "scuff tracks" for my TV roof rack

I've seen body side molding used.

RE: sticking indicator

Many will sort of burp when flushing if nearly full. Once that happens it is time to find a dump station.

RE: TV Swing Arm bracket mounting help needed

Look for staples which will indicate where the studs are located. If no staples you can probably tap or push on the wall to find the studs. If you are uncomfortable with the strength of one stud, use a board to span across two studs and mount to the board. Use the appropriate length and type of screw for the studs. Use too long and you will be asking us how to repair screw holes in the outside of the RV. :B

RE: Residual water in black water tank

I add about a half gallon to a gallon of water to mine after dumping. I do that by holding down the foot pedal partially and fill the bowl. When the bowl is almost full I then dump the bowl into the black tank. Exactly this, one or two bowls of water. Why do people have to make this complicated?

RE: toilet paper ....

So, what is the consensus on tp... I would imagine that the consensus is that it is a good thing.

RE: Waxing Aluminum Sided TT??

I have owned quite a few RVs over the past 25 years and have never waxed one of them. If I did then I would use a regular automotive wax. Just don't tell your RV that it isn't RV wax and it won't know the difference.

RE: Out of level campsite pads

I wish my life was so charmed that unlevel sites were all I had to complain about. I mean compared to pestilence, and hunger, unlevel RV sites have got to be at the top of the list. :B

RE: Electric Broom

...you have to look for the amps the vacuum puts out. Amps provide the power to actually pick up the dirt. ...I was VERY shocked that the ones you are lead to believe are the most powerful? Had the lowest amps of all of them! A motor consumes amps, it doesn't "put out". Even though amp draw does give some hint of power it is also contingent on efficiency. An efficient vacuum may have more sucking power while having a lower amp rating.

RE: Coupler Lock by reese

...ball coupler lock by reese. Yesterday I see the reese lock dangling, someone got it unlocked and reversed the shackle.... Would that be the same lock that the YouTube videos show being opened in less than 10 seconds?

RE: Atwood Hot Water Drain Plug

Drain plug is nylon, the others are probably brass. Neither will corrode but nylon is much less expensive than brass.
