RE: KIB system monitor removal

Thanks for the info. Didn't want to put too much force on the tab if it wasn't intended to move!

KIB system monitor removal

I have the same system monitor as in this picture: http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b378/JBarca/Misc%20Camper%20Stuff/TankGages.jpg One of my switches is going bad and I would like to replace/clean the switch but have no idea how to remove the panel. I have no manual for it and haven't had luck finding anything online. Before I start prying away, is there a trick to getting the panel off? There appears to be a place to pry at the top but I want clarification before I apply too much force. Thanks!

RE: roof leak

My Zinger's rubber roof extends under the front cap and under the front skin by about a foot. No standards. I too would not use anymore sealants and seal it right with Eternabond. The stuff is amazing and will outlast the trailer. I searched and searched for the source of a small leak on my trailer. Only after I sealed everything with Eternabond did it stop.

RE: Pad under roof antenna?

I cut some squares of Eternabond and put them under where the antenna rests when down. Figured it couldn't hurt.

RE: Cleaning EPDM Rubber Roof

I personally wouldn't use a pressure washer on the roof and if I HAD to I'd use the widest nozzle pattern there was. Mineral spirits will clean the lap sealant.

RE: Cleaning EPDM Rubber Roof

Ditto. No reason to wash rubber roofs. If you are getting black steaks, clean the gutters.

RE: DirecTV SL3-SWM and cheap meters

Big Katuna, you said that you use the meter like a continuity tester. I understand that the meter is going to squeal whenever it sees any signal which makes it difficult to find the right bird. The SL3 LNB sees 3 orbital positions at one time, 99, 101, 103. Would the cheap meter see all three or does the LNB default to just the 101 until the receiver is hooked up?

RE: DirecTV SL3-SWM and cheap meters

OK so everyone says not to use the cheap meters but I still want to know my original question. Will a cheap meter work off of a green label splitter that has 21v injected to the lnb? If so what bird is output with no receivers hooked up?

RE: KZ Sportsmen Owners beware

Looks too thick to be brake lines. Looks more like a tarnished copper LP line. But it clearly goes to the brake.

RE: DirecTV SL3-SWM and cheap meters

I usually do - just trying to understand this and my options.

DirecTV SL3-SWM and cheap meters

This has been discussed before but I am still not 100% clear on what to use. I currently use an old 18" DirecTV dish with a D12 standard def receiver. I'd like to bring an HD receiver from the house along with a SL3 dish. My question is aligning a SWM LNB it with a cheapo LCD meter from eBay. The LNB needs 21v from the power injector to turn on but that is too much for the meter. DirecTV used to have a 'splitter looking' product called the ASL-1 that would pass the 21v to the LNB allowing you to use a cheap meter. It had outputs for the 101 and other birds. The ASL-1 has been discontinued and they are pricey used. Some have said to just use a non-SWM SL3 LNB which is fine since I am only feeding one TV. Others have said that you can use a normal green label SWM splitter and inject the 21v into it. You can then hook your cheap meter to an output of it powering it with 18v from an outside source. Is this indeed factual? Will a normal SWM splitter do the same thing as the ASL-1. What satellite would be output if this is true? I read that as long as the LNB is powered without a receiver, it'll output the 101 bird to peak on. Thanks!

RE: Trip Planning: The Perfect Family Trip 2016!

You are passing right by the Minuteman Missile historical site (just before Wall, SD) on I-90. http://www.nps.gov/mimi/index.htm Might be worth a few hour visit.

RE: Got me some work to do!

The source of the leak is in one of the photos in the first post of this thread. I did see the pic, just didn't know where that was. Is the floor flush with the bottom of the base of the wall?

RE: Got me some work to do!

What did you believe to be the source of the leak? I'm wondering if the front window also contributed to the leak?

RE: Wieght hitch bars when backing into sloped driveway

I contacted Equal-i-zer about this a year ago. My drive isn't as bad as the OP but it still has a bit of rise from the street. Their reply was nothing would be hurt keeping the bars attached. If anything, the L brackets that hold the bars to the trailer could start to bend but the actual spring bars, hitch would not be harmed.

RE: Solaire TT Blew Over in Storm

I wonder if a couple of skid steers could get it back up? One under the awning and the other to catch it before it bounces on the other side.

RE: equalizer, where to buy?

Don't waste your money on the socket from Equal-i-zer. Tractor Supply sells a large socket that fits just fine for a lot less money.

RE: equalizer, where to buy?

There is no comparison between an add on friction sway control bar over an Equal-i-zer brand hitch. Adventurerv.net has good prices and is where I bought mine.

RE: Did some damage to the TT

Also, hard to tell from the photos but it looks like the wood may have some wetness in the one part. The screw looks a bit rusty as well. Might take a look at that while the molding is off.

RE: Did some damage to the TT

Been there, done that! Clipped a car mirror with mine and did the same damage and put a softball sized dent in the skin Total insurance claim was $2200. I took the cash, paid down the balance and fixed it myself. The corner molding was $12.00. Shipping was $120 since it was over 8' and had to be shipped freight. Easy fix. Use lots of butyl tape underneath and ProFlex down the sides. Get yours water tight first and foremost before you get water intrusion.
