RE: Genny issue (still)

Somehow some way you seem to be sucking air. Is there any way you can pinch the gas line somewhere close to the tank then using something like the vacuum kit to bleed brake lines pull a vacuum on the line to verify the fuel line is not the problem.

RE: wireless router/internet question

I decided to go with wired cameras after reading the specs on wireless with wired there are no worries about distance up to 150ft and no interference. Regardless if you plan on a DVR and remote access I suspect you will need to set up port fording on your router. DLink probably has tech support that can assist you with the set up.

RE: No lp

As stated earlier in may be as simple as air in the line. Open one of the range top burners with a match held close and see if the flame flickers from air pressure escaping. If so it may take over a minuet for the air to purge and gas start to flow.

RE: Who knows the most about garage/gate openers?

Simple answer NO phone works on a different frequency they control all those other devices through the internet and wi-fi. Bite the $20 bullet and buy one.

RE: Windows 10

I have an IBM R40 running win 7 Pro. It is just fine for me since I only do e-mail and some searches. I would think Win 10 would be more than this ol dog can handle. Just curious if MS would even notify me of the Win 10 update.

RE: Is it just me...probably!

I check in almost everyday but no longer read all post only those that look interesting to me. I don't post near as much since majority never come back and tell the resolution. I do enjoy the forum and have learned a lot over the years.

RE: LastPass Hacked! Change Master Password Now!

I use strong passwords with financial and medical accounts and one or two variations of easy to remember for the rest. There is no way I could possibly remember the strong passwords so I back them up on a jump drive just in case. I also change them every 3 to 6 months. I opened a LastPass account but never used it I decided I should trust only myself with that kind of information.

RE: Warning re Winnebago touch up paint not drying

Not a paint expert but I found out if you put on a second coat "before" the 1st coat is thoroughly dry then the 1st coat may never really dry.

RE: onan generator

Did you use an OEM filter? You may have a slightly smaller filter. Like others said run it for a short while then check it again on a level surface after about one hour. If its OK on the dip stick then just keep an eye on it as it is probably OK.

RE: Workhorse to Re-enter Class A Chassis Market

The 8.8 has been out since late 2011 so it is not new just new to the RV industry.

RE: I may have fried my Jack Antenna Please help

As stated NO LOAD voltage is always higher unless you have a really good regulated power supply. I doubt you fried the Jack. Many reasons for "NO SIGNAL" could be a bad cable, low signal strength, if you are close to a station and know for sure you should have a signal you will have to check the voltage at the antenna to verify the wiring. Not sure on your set up but do you have a switch ANT/CABLE in the wrong position?

RE: 3 prong 50 amp plug to 4 prong 50 amp ????

I think what GoneCamping is talking about is faking the coach into thinking power is coming from the generator when in fact he will plug into the CG 50amp outlet. Now comes the problem how do you wire the 4 prong CG side to the 3 prong RV side. There is NO provision for L1 & L2 in the RV only L1 - N and G so it can't be done the way he is attempting to do it. What is not understood by GoneCamping is the rear AC is not fed through the 3 prong generator plug the 3 prong plug is electrically connected to the 30amp circuit breaker on the side of the generator and goes to the main coach 120V circuit breaker. The 20 amp circuit breaker on the gen set is wired to the rear AC unit. The generator puts out 1 120VAC 30amp output for the main coach and a separate 120VAC 20amp output for the rear AC unit. It is NOT 220VAC the 120V outputs are IN PHASE so the do not add up to 220VAC.

RE: 1995 P30 ECM Faults (454 TBI)

Had the same problem was a bad gasket under the throttle body. Research showed this to be a problem that will throw a lot of codes. One test is with the engine running spray some WD-40 at the base of the TB and the engine will speed up. That should not happen. I think it was a $12 fix.

RE: Class A and boats

If you have never done it practice backing up straight in a church parking lot. You will be amazed at how fast the boat responds to a very little steering input the boat will jackknife in a heartbeat.

RE: Kohler generator 7cm21 Holiday Rambler

You can Google 7cm21 and find manuals. parts manual look at this parts manual. Scroll down and I think the spring you are talking about is shown connected.

RE: Kohler generator 7cm21 Holiday Rambler

Sounds like a fuel problem. I have the service manual in Adobe format but don't know how to send it by RV forum. You might find it on Google for download. I think I can send it by e-mail if you pm me you email address.

RE: TomTom Horrible Routing

What I do, preview the route on Google maps that the GPS has determined I need to follow. Verify how you really want to go then set as many way points in the Tom Tom as needed to force the GPS to go your way. I use a Garmin but it is the same procedure.

RE: be careful with led replacement bulbs

You need to check the voltage at the light sockets, incandescent bulbs only want 12VDC +/- connections polarity make no difference. LED bulbs want 12VDC with the correct polarity (+ to + / - to -) they can be shorted and burned out with a reverse polarity. The center connection must be positive, the side connection must be the negative connection.
