RE: Installing plexiglass on screen door

I used velco on the edges and it can be removed or replaced. Had it on for 3 years and still the first piece

Just requires some changes to the existing wiring but that is never a problem.

RE: Antenna Suggestions

SCVJeff, Thanks for the info. Now I need to find one that I can use without adding holes. My quest is two fold. is the Omni any good and if not what is? As another option what about the Wingard RS3000

Antenna Suggestions

Just purchased a 1989 Coachman Van Conversion without an external TV antenna. I'm looking to bolt an omni directional antenna to the roof rack railings. One suggestion has been a LAVA Omnipro HD8000. Not sure how these will hold up to the highway speed winds. Does anyone have experience with such a setup? Really don't want to put more holes in the fiberglass roof.

RE: Disconnecting Battery When Plugged in for long periods

Not being that familiar with the converters - What unit would you recommend to replace this one with. Don't want a boiled unit. http://www.bestconverter.com/assets/images/Progressive_Dynamics/pd4600.jpg width=420 Emailed Randy and ended up ordering the PD4645V which shipped today. I'll not plug in until it is installed. Don't need to ruin the battery I just installed. Next project is the new toilet as the old one we don't want to get near. Thanks for the help and direction

RE: Disconnecting Battery When Plugged in for long periods

A lot depends on your converter.. Magnetek 6300 by all means unplug Progressive Dynamics wizard controlled models... I never disconnect. I just brought home a 1989 Coachman Van Conversion that has this converter. Actually Series 6300A options CNI Not being that familiar with the converters - What unit would you recommend to replace this one with. Don't want a boiled unit. My other unit is an 08 Jayco Eagle that I never unplug and have never had a problem Thanks

RE: What did you do today instead of playing in your RV?

Installed a home security camera system. Which system did you put in?

RE: Back up camera wire routing

I ran pvc conduit front to back above my sealed bottom of TT. Now I can pull front to back anything I need. Used 1 inch and secured whenever I could.

RE: antivirus programs

I've been using Avast for years as we did in my last job. Great and easy.

RE: tire pressure and valve stem issues

The tires themselves will have a max cold air pressure. This is what should not be exceeded and will give you the best wear and load bearing ability. You might have had someone change the tires from the originals. Check on the tire.

RE: Drilling through floor. Help,

I ran 12v under mine and ran it on the outside edge of the frame I-beam. Then went up, or down, through the floor on the outside edge. Molding can cover some of the wire run or in my case I was able to run behind and through cabinets alongside the outside wall. this way the belly coverings did not need to be disturbed. Created a longer run but did not damage the coverings.

RE: Where do you stop for air?

I carry a pancake one for emergencies, have TMPS and also stop at Discount Tire for them to do all 8 tires each time I head out. They sold them and I let them air them up each time I leave home. 55 foot in their lot is reason to get rid of me quickly.

RE: Sometimes you just have to adapt.

Last spring from MI to AZ by way of MS we went south into a head wind. Our 8mph normal was 4.5 until we hit the Gulf. On the way home from OKC had 40mph cross winds and rain but stayed the course all the way home. Hensley took care of cross winds and we made it home safe but a little tired. I agree, it is what it is so enjoy the journey. Have a great time.

RE: Carrying chairs without a ladder

Under the bed or in the bed of the truck under the cover. Last in and first out. I've even had some that needed to be on edge alongside the bed. Don't need that space until we sleep.

RE: First RV show

We go in Michigan every year and you saw what is typical. We looked for Class C a couple years and one year only saw 2. Too many toy haulers and bunkhouses for what we need so we just go and look for mods to be done on my unit.

RE: WIN 10 - IRS Free File Fillable Forms

If it is simple then the AARP TaxAides will also do it free.
