RE: Coax connectors

Thanks for all the replies. The BNC connectors look like the best alternative to my needs. The push on regular coax connectors just relax too quickly and I hate having to screw on and off the coax. My fingers just don't work as good as they used to :)

Coax connectors

We fulltime so we move around a lot. My satellite dish is tripod mount. I've tried the push on connectors to facilitate the connecting process and frankly, they just wear out too quickly and of course a poor connection, poor TV. I have a DVR so I have two cables. What problem would I find if I replaced the connection with what known as Dean connection in the RC flying world. Dean type connector Two prong connector and failsafe polarity connection. Of course an inch or so of the connection would not be shielded....is that a problem???? Any other solutions that I'm not aware of.

Travel trailer and 5ers wheel bearings

I'm just confused as to why trailers have a problem with wheel bearings. Why are they different than the front wheel bearings on the older rear wheel drive cars? Perhaps they weigh a lot more??? That would be the only answer I can come up with.

RE: Wireless back up camera

Wireless???? Hit or miss. Some installations are just great and absolutely no problem. Others are "kinda good" Works good sometimes but you never know when it is going to work or not. Wired???? Always a positive connection and picture.

RE: what size genny????

I have a Honda 2000. It will run an AC sometimes. Please, don't let anyone tell you that it will work....it won't. SeaDog/BBB has given you good advice. Good size, Good product, quiet and you won't regret your purchase. There may be others that "might" do the job in a slightly smaller size, but give yourself the confidence that it will work. Did I mention, its quiet????

RE: Harvesting tails from road kill critters

Sorry but I have to ask: If you could easily cut and preserve the tails, what would you do with them? Curious minds want to know :)

RE: HOT SHOT cattle prod

I think cows are a lot more sensitive to electric current then people. We had a cattle waterer that was not sufficiently grounded. The cows wouldn't drink. I stuck my hand into the muck and my nose into the waterer and only felt a tingle.Now thats funny, don't care who you are...thats funny. Thats a lot like: "Hey Wilbur......see what happens when you pee on that wire.....

RE: Question about a rain gauge vs. empty tuna can

I'm amazed at the difference in how several people can assess the simple problem, which isn't a problem at all. For years we had a professional rain gauge in an open space in our back yard. It was about the size of a grapefruit juice can and the top was a funnel with about a 4" top and tapered down to a one inch cylinder. The increments on the one inch cylinder was read as inches but an inch of rain would fill the cylinder up to about a 3 or 4 inch depth. That allowed one to see a better estimate of the rain fall.

RE: Shine On Polish for your Rv

The only wax I've ever had a problem with was NuFinish. Only on the application and buffing out. I couldn't get the wax off once applied. Light coats or heavy coats the same result. Never had a problem with other waxes, mostly Meguire products before.

RE: ISB 300 Power loss / Turbo Failure

The easiest thing to check first is: The 1" hose that runs under the intake manifold from the bottom front of the intake manifold and back to the air compressor. I had the same symptoms you described and a forum member gave me the same tip. My hole in the hose was at the bottom of the hose right where it connects to the air compressor just as it was described to me. A new hose is $43.00 from Cummins' or an 18" hose from NAPA about $10 bucks. Which hose would that be? Where exactly is it connected? Inlet or intercooler maybe? Its located below the intake manifold and connects to the intake manifold right at the bottom front. It makes a 90 degree bend towards the rear of the engine (radiator side) and connects to the air compressor. Very easy to see from the top. Run your hand over the hose all the way around it from one end to the other and you might find a hole in it like I did. Mine was on the bottom of the hose right at the air compressor connection. 15 minute job to replace.

RE: Got some road hazard damage today. Pics

Years ago I had a built in torque wrench...its max torque was 200 lbs. Now my built in torque wrench is probably down to about a 30 lb max torque. :(

RE: losing coolant, no visible leak

A new radiator cap is the first and easiest and cheapest thing you can start with. As mentioned above.

RE: Anti-spammer suggestion

Replying to a spam is the worse thing you can do. First, a spammer on a forum doesn't have your email address.....yet. But when you feel the urge (and believe me, I've had the urge) to give them a piece of your mind, that just either verifies your address is accurate or adds your email address to their spam list and third, they sell your email address to other spammers. Control the urge, I moderate the Face Book Group page "All About RVing" and even there, spammers are a problem. We never approve a suspicious new member but even then, some are smarter than the average chicken and they do sneak in...shortlived but it happens.

RE: Another reason NOT to use the "Water Thief"

Is this worse?I don't worry too much about cross contamination of the water systems but I worry about idiots like this. Now this is CROSS CONTAMINATION.

RE: Sudden drop on MPG causes?

You have something drastically wrong. Forget the tire pressure and easy stuff. Have a professional mechanic take a look at it. Probably a good tuneup will provide the mechanic with the facts you need to diagnose the real problem and fix it.

RE: Saving $5.00 Bills

We have saved our change for years in my sock drawer in our MH. The drawer was about to fail so we gathered all the change and put it in a bag. It probably weighted in at about 30 lbs. All our friends guessed at the value...everything from $400 to $800 dollars. Took it to the bank and it was only $276.00. There was a lot of pennies in it that messed up the count.

RE: Craiglist buyers...scratching my head...

When you sell by Craigslist, you have to leave yourself some wiggle room. People think that because its Craigslist, there is built in wiggle room. I put 6 - 7 year old 22" tires from my MH on Craigs list for free, had about 1/2 or better thread. A rancher called me and absolutely wanted them for his hay wagons and wanted to see them. He came over an hym-hawed around kicking the dirt with his toe trying to make up his mind if they were worth his loading them up or not. I finally asked him if he was waiting for me to say "I'll pay you to take them?" He looked at me suddenly and said, "how much would you pay?" I told him to take a hike, they would go to the dump before I'd give them to him. Then he wanted them and I got bull headed and refused to give them to him. As it turned out, I did have to pay a disposal fee to get rid of them. Not the first time my hard headed approach cost me :)
