RE: If you've had 3M film on the front, would you again?

No way I would have it again. Our front end is a light cream color and the film has brown blotches from pea size to dime size under the film. It really looks bad.

RE: Gasoline Evaporation of 3/4 gallon per week ???????

Over how many weeks have you been checking it? I many times fill within 30 miles of home. Then before we leave again top the tank off from a gas can. I have seen many times where I top off and the next time I check it, it will take more gas. Sometimes after filling I move the unit 2 or 3 feet and can dump in another gallon or two. I sort of figured after filling there is still air in the tank after a few days the gas displaces the air and i can get more in. I've found many times after a station fill I can hand fill from a can 10 to 15 gallons. Don't know just saying.

RE: FORD EBRAKE TRANSMISSION FAILURE

I'm not trying to place blame, but has the fluid level in the park brake ever been checked?? I have talked to several owners that didn't know it had to be checked. And know of Ford service centers that when they have been asked to check it said they never heard of checking it. Sort of like the zerk fitting on the steering box a lot of folks don't know about and neither do some Ford service centers when ask to be sure they put some grease to it.

RE: Famous sightings... almost

Camped at Brown County state park in Indiana. Went over to the lodge to eat and there sit Marty Stuart on the porch. This was a lot of years back.

RE: Brake Buddy Brake away switch

I always use the breakaway. I figure the chances of the breakaway switch shorting out are about the same as the chances of the car fully detaching.

RE: Attaching dump hose to dump hole?

We were spending the winter several years ago in a southern state park with full hookups. After about a week I noticed my sewer hose was out of the hole. I put it back, but within a few days noticed it was back out. I was telling one of the park rangers about it and he said it happens once in awhile. For some reason there was a pressure at times that would pop a hose out. My curer to that was place a cloth bag with about 10 pounds of sand in it over the hose. No more problem. I carry the sand bag with me now in the water bay, if dumping and I don't have any other way to weight the sewer hose I get the bag out.

RE: How to Remove Winnebago Nose Trim to Paint

We have a 2007 Winnebago Voyage 38J. Dissappointed that the black paint on the fiberglass body trim on both sides of the windshield has faded. Must have been a bad batch of paint or not prepared properly. I need to take the trim off, take them to a auto paint shop and have them repainted. Odd, the other tan color body paint on the same parts is just fine. Two screws are visible with the hood open but even after removing the screws I cant get the trim to budge. I suspect it is some form of "align then slide" keyhole feature to lock trim in place but cant get it to budge no matter what I do. Has anyone had to do this? I have tried contacting Winnebago service but thay are always busy, will keep trying... Not sure if I will need to repaint the black portion of the hood too, it hasnt faded hardly at all compared to the two trim pieces. Thanks.... I think yours might be the same as my 08 35L. You have to take the trim inside off to get at the fasteners. It's my black paint on the hood that will not shine for any more than 2 to 3 days after buffing.

RE: Shortwave radio

Learn more about listening to shortwave radio not really communicate by HAM radio Sounds like your interest is more in being a SWL (shortwave listener). There are many small compact transceivers out there today that are excellent for the SWL. Many at very good prices in the used market. Yes I said transceivers (able to transmit and receive) I think the transceivers have better receivers in them than most shortwave only receivers. Just make sure you get a general coverage transceiver as it will cover more frequency range than a ham bands only. You can own and listen, just don't talk on it unless you have a license. Check this site: SWL INFO out, I think it will help you.

RE: IE wont boot up

I did some more poking around. When I click on the IE icon the page comes up blank,but the header with bookmarks,tools,help,ect,is still there. If I click on the bookmarks they come up. So it seems that I have only lost the IE home page.:h I called tech support and they were so busy they took my info and said they would call back in one hour. That was an hour and a half ago. My computer won't let me down load a new browser. I tried to down load safari and it wouldn't load. So I guess I'll try google chrome. Make sure to turn off your popup blocker before you try to download a new browser.

RE: Wireless camera using Jetpack question

I'm not sure if what I am asking makes sense. But has anyone hooked up a WiFi security camera using a Verizon Jetpack 4620L?? I would like to be able to monitor the camera on my pc at times when I am logged onto my Jetpack, plus have a camera with motion sensor that will take still photos or video and either store them within the camera or on the computer. I'm hoping to find a camera that pans and tilts. If you can figure out what I'm talking about I would be interested in how you did it, plus camera model that allowed you to do it. Let me try to clear up the usage I would like to have. First off I know next to nothing about the cameras or hooking this whole mess up to function as I hope it can. I would like a camera that has motion control to turn itself on & off that can save pictures to a card or whatever without the Jetpack being on to view later if needed. On the other hand when I am home and the Jetpack is on I would like to be able to monitor a pan and tilt camera. I don't care to view what the camera is seeing at home when I'm not there. If I'm not home there is a 90% chance I have my Jetpack with me so it's not home anyway. I hope this somewhat clears up what I want to do. So I need ideas on a pan & tilt camera that can be outdoors, getting power to the camera is no problem, but to view live pictures at home I don't want wires to fool with in getting it to the computer. ( I have a spare computer to use just to monitor the camera.

RE: Suck or blow... and where's the best spot to do it?

My first choice would be to mount in the bathroom. Then I would install a DPDT switch so as to switch from intake to exhaust as needed.

RE: Full Time wifi

We use the HotSpot Plan from Millenicom both at home and on the road. We are on the road 7 months out of the year. The Hotspot Jetpack works very well. And we only use about half the 20 GB limit.

RE: "Software Download Complete"

Just click "Start" in the lower left corner then "All Programs" then "Windows Update". You should then be able to see what Windows updates there are to download.

RE: Flexable ""Green hose"

We have the green hose, we don't use it for city water hookup. But I do find it nice to use around the campsite for washing the Rv and car. It also is handy when I want to wash the RV using onboard water and the RV pump. I agree it's not a very rugged build hose, treat it gentle and they last ok.

RE: Condensation inside voyager camera

The short term fix is heat the camera up with a hair dyer. Use low heat and be very careful to only heat it enough to make the fogging disappear. Sometimes it would not fog back up for several weeks and sometimes only days. In the end we had to replace the camera to stop the fogging.
