RE: Should I change tires on my Jeep toad?

To me it would depend on future usage. Tires have a tendency to dry rot so tires sitting around unused is a bad idea. Switching them back and forth means a set of rims so now its tires "and" rims so it becomes a cost of tires, rims plus the labor to swap and number of times a year I would need to swap.

RE: Fridge on 12V killing the batteries

I'm no expert but the way I would answer the question to my own satisfaction would be. Start with fully charged batteries with the engine running frig on 12V what is the voltage at the batteries? 13V+ and you know there should be no damage to the batteries since you are providing good enough charge to satisfy the batteries and run the frig. If you are starting out with low battery voltage then run on propane until batteries get a good charge then switch to battery. You battery problem may not be the frig but running the batteries to low to many times when dry camping.

RE: Two computer problem, possibly related?

Could be something corrupted the bios. You can turn off, unplug and remove the battery, press the power on and hold for 10/15 seconds. Reinstall battery, plug in and see if that helps.

RE: 2 problems

Some converters have to have a battery to work properly if you have dead batteries it will have an effect on the 12v from the converter.

RE: Portable ice makers

Have had one for several years. Fill it with water and in a few minuets it starts dumping ice into the basket. If you do not use all the ice in the basket it will slowly melt and make more ice so you always have ice in the basket. When the water runs low you will have to add water depending on how much ice you use for us that's every few days. I like not having to buy ice or running out of ice. We do use distilled water.

RE: Ready Brake Installation questions

They have a video on their web site with estimated times. If I remember right a Jeep will take the most time. I figured I could do my Jeep in less than 3 hours if I have everything laid out and follow the directions.

RE: Anyone have this problem? (long post)

Like others have said over or under fill can cause the problem then there is a host of things inside that could be the problem. You can check the fluid if it's OK then you will have to take it to a transmission shop.

RE: Condensation in our stored MH

We had that problem with our boat. With electricity there are lots of things you can do. Without electric dry it out, seal it up and put the Dry Rid or similar in front and rear. In our case (on the water) we had to empty the containers at least every other week. They come in 2 sizes used 4 of the large size.

RE: electrical

You may have 2 solenoids. One solenoid connects the 2 battery systems together for starting assist as long as you hold the auxiliary switch. Another solenoid is for connecting the 2 systems together when driving for charging. The solenoids are not interchangeable and have different part numbers.

RE: Remote veiwing DVR

I think I found the answer. TP-LINK-Wi-Fi-Range-Extender-WA850RE This should do what I am trying to accomplish for around $20 and no wiring. A few years ago the house was broken into (twice) by someone that knew we were on the road so I fixed a false floor in a closet and set up a security system DVR with cameras. There are no visible wires and would be just about impossible to find the DVR to steal the recorded evidence. It works just fine but being under the floor the WiFi signal for internet is pretty weak so I want to boost it. Hope I did not make this even more confusing but I think I have the solution so thanks to everyone trying to make sense of my problem and assist with this thread. Oh yeah, we did catch a neighbors son stealing a dead battery I left out as bait and no more problems word got around we had cameras.

RE: Remote veiwing DVR

This is at my home, I connect through WiFi or cellular when away its when I'm home I have the problem of poor WiFi. I will run Ethernet cable from Motorola modem/WiFi to remote Cisco 4200 internet connection and Ethernet cable from Cisco router port to DVR. Is the port forwarding through the Motorola/Cisco be a problem???

RE: Remote veiwing DVR

I'm talking remote viewing like right now I'm 500 miles away and I can see the security cameras over the internet and playback the DVR. When I get back I want good WiFi in the rear bedroom for that I will need a range extender the Modem or DVR can not be relocated.

Remote veiwing DVR

I have a Motorola modem/WiFi no router ports connected to DVR/Cameras for remote viewing. Motorola is port forward. Everything is hidden under the floor through an access panel works great but weak WiFi signal. Now= cable > modem/WiFi > DVR > cameras Plan is to use Cisco 4200 router/WiFi as a range extender for WiFi internet access in rear bedroom. Cable > modem/WiFi > Cisco internet port > DVR > cameras. I know I will need two SSID for local WiFI access but will I be able to get to the DVR remotely? I don't want to buy a new modem since I have the Cisco router. I am over 500 miles away and brain storming if I can make this work when I get back.

RE: Connecting T Mobile phone thru Version Jetpack?

Look up the Verizon home phone they can be carried anywhere and used as a land line (voice only). Works anywhere you have Verizon cell phone service even while traveling in vehicle. I use Straight Talk thru Walmart on the Verizon network $15 month no contract.

RE: Inside Security Cameras?

The problem I see with an exposed camera once stolen you are no better off. A notice on the door is no proof you have or had a security camera. When I was searching for a security system I found a lot of cameras embedded in things like a wall clock or picture frame, they have SD cards and are just about impossible to detect the only shortcoming is battery life but in your case this would not be a problem. example; http://www.brickhousesecurity.com/category/hidden+cameras/cctv+hidden+cameras.do

RE: DTV losing some channels??

Does the antenna have a clear view of the sky? If you have trees you need to look at where the dish is pointing then look up another 30 deg. You may be loosing one satellite or just some transponders from one of the satellites.

RE: Atwood Water Heater

You stated you had power to the water heater CB and WH works with direct extension so that leaves only a few options. 1. CB itself is bad.... Swap with another one to test. 2. Wire from CB to WH is open.... Check for continuity from CB to outlet. 3. 120V Outlet is bad....check outlet.
