RE: Electric powered bed lift

Consider the addition of pneumatic piston supports, much like those used on bay doors. They come in a wide range of poundage. Our rear bed has them and opening the engine compartment with mattress in place is a no effort task.

RE: How do companies that offer FREE cloud storage make money???

I use drop box. not quiet he same as cloud' but it saves my important files on all my smart phones' tablets and computers by sync. Just for clarification - dropbox is a "cloud" storage service. A cloud storage service is any service that stores your bytes on hard disks over the internet.OK. so its the same thing, only different.

RE: Stewart Injures Back

I think the NASCAR drivers are used to being back in the drivers seat in record times that the average person could only dream about. Its almost a part of their career. But: I feel like Tony (by far my favorite driver for years) should probably just use this accident as a benchmark to hang it up. He just hasn't been competitive like he used to be. Jeff was able to hang it up with style and class. I don't think that Tony will be able to look like the driver he used to be for another year.

RE: Loss of partial power

Go to your converter/inverter unit and press the resets on it.

RE: engine removal on a Gas Unit

If it has gone into days already and the engine is still in the MH, they facility is just using your engine work as fill in work. They tinker with it when they have nothing else to do. Time to have a real sit down talk with the owner and vent your frustrations and discuss his future intentions.

RE: Running 2 a/c's

We had the 5500 Onan on a 2002 MH with two AC's. Dont remember if they were the 13 0r 15000 size and it had no problem running both at one time. Didn't have an elec water heater. I'd say your Onan needs a tuneup.

RE: Fancier isn't always better

We have a Carefree electric awning and have no problems with it. We bought de flappers for the sides, slid a sun screen into the tube and used stakes and bungies to hold it down. Only one time did we have to pull the stakes all of last winter, and the sun screen rolled right up with the awning.How long is your sun screen? I've never tried leaving mine on when retracting the awning.

RE: Not the Drones again

Because now those drones are coming with video, photography, and audio recording devices. It's not just about the drone - it's about what people are doing with the drones.That was available and used a long time before anyone ever thought of a quadcopter being a reality. I've used a GoPro on my gliders long before quads (so called drones) ever came into existence.

RE: Fancier isn't always better

A suggestion for the OP.To stop the flapping use a couple of containers filled with water tied off from the end of the awning so that the awning will have to lift them off the ground to flap. Jerking can be eliminated by having a bit of bungey cord connected inline.I've thought about this but didn't do it out of fear I'll damage the mechanism if it tries to retract against my tie down.You can turn the auto function on and off. I have never tied mine down but I do see a huge number of auto awnings tied down. Solution is simple...spend the big bucks and get a mechanical awning if thats what winds your watch.

RE: Fancier isn't always better

We paid a vendor in Yuma to upgrade our mechanical awning to electric. Best decision we ever made. Yes, sometimes it retracts in a breeze rather than wait for a wind but it goes back out as easily as it went back in. We use it nearly constantly where we seldom used the mechanical one.

RE: Fancier isn't always better

I think the solution is actually very simple. Use some of your money to buy an awning that you can enjoy again. I fail to see the problem.

RE: furnace not heating well

Suggest you look in the bays where your duct work is probably routed. I found two duct hoses disconnected and the basement was very toasty. Check each heater outlet for somewhat equal air flow between all of them.

RE: led color

We use bright. I need a lot of light to see anything and this works very well.

RE: Not the Drones again

using airplanes/copters as analogies for drones is inappropriate. To fly a drone one does not need a license. If a plane/copter is infringing on privacy or flying inappropriately they can be reported using the registration numbers; this is not possible with drones. I think we can all agree there needs to be clear cut regulations defining where the personal liberty of drone flying infringes on personal privacy of another and have a legal recourse when infringement occurs.On he contrary. To fly any rc aircraft, plane, drone, quad helicopter that weights in over 1/2 lb has to have a Federal ID operators number affixed to the craft. The operator now has to pay a fee to get that number. Of course you can't see that number while flying, but if it crashes, the number had better be on the flying object.

RE: Not the Drones again

I think it would be fun to take a drone out and capture some great live video of a place like Yosemite or Grand Canyon. Some of us will never be able to go into these places on foot in person. Even if we can not fly something within the National Park, it would be nice to be able to do it someplace, such as a National Forest, or other less crowded place, out of the way so to speak. As for flying over someone's back yard, and filming it, that is not really respecting their right to privacy in their back yard. Yet while doing this to say check the condition of the roof for the homeowner, that is an acceptable way to survey the condition of the roof very quickly. We have considered flying a electric remote control helicopter over the property where I work to look for things like wasp nests, condition of the paint, roof, and other things that would take a 5 story long extension ladder to do in person. . . Fred. Fred, your intentions are the same as a lot of quad (drone) owners, but the National Park Service has ruled that they are absolutely illegal in the park system. Too bad, some nut cases, like trying to fly on the White House makes it difficult for the rest of us.

RE: Who all carries a DRONE while RVing?

Because of the drone controversy, FAA has gotten into the act (Yes we need more government controls) and all RC plane or quad operators have to register now for a number that is affixed to any RC plane or quad over 1/2 pound. They are banned at all federal parks. Of course the great pictures I have before the ban will be all I can get going forward. Operating a "drone" or quad is simply a hobby that the pilot needs to practice common sense and follow rules...simple rules, don't fly over 400 ft, near airports, over people or any place that does not allow them. BTW: Yes, I have a F450 quad with a GoPro 3 camera that does a remarkable job of aerial photography. Along with 3 other smaller ones.

RE: Sea foam test

I only use SeaFoam on my Honda 2000 generator. I add an oz or so to a full tank the last tankful of the season or last use for a period of time. My Honda will start with just a couple or three pulls of the rope next time I use it. I first used it when it ran just terrible after storage and it cleaned up the system in just minutes and Honda ran perfect ever since.

RE: RV.net got something BAD going on

Isn't it great that the biggest problem faced today by a bunch of retired ole geezers is how a free forum is having a problem and ruining our day? :) :) :) Before retirement, the problems of the day seemed to be a lot bigger.
