RE: No 110 at outlets

On some RVs there is a breaker or breakers on the invertor/converter. Check it for a tripped breaker.

Sometimes you win the easy ones - appreciate it, it will get harder :(

RE: remote camera for entry door

You might just get one of the aftermarket wireless backup cameras for autos. I bought one for only $70 bucks at either SAMS or COSTCO a couple years ago and it works well. Tiny screen and 12 volts so it draws little current and takes up little space. Outside camera is very tiny.

RE: Tow Bar Shields

I/ve used a hula skirt, modified to mount to the front end of the toad and protect the front end of the toad. It has worked well for 10 years of fulltiming and two different toads.

RE: Lowes AND Home Depot-horrible quality

I don't think that the price of the door should reflect the condition of it. It should be the materials and workmanship. So regardless of the price, the purchased product, doors or eggs, should be in pristine condition.

RE: Given choice gas or diesel powered fill time coach

We fulltime and for the last few years only travel 4000 miles per year. For the comfort and quietness and better fuel economy the DP is our choice. Not to say that there isn't many gas MH's that I'd be happy with, newer and better floor plans but our 2001 DP has served us very well over the last fulltiming years.

RE: My profile says I'm a GS member.

I think they just assume everyone is a GS member and place it on your avitar. I get one too and haven't been a member for 10 years. It makes the viewers think that there are more GS members out there than there really is.

RE: Looking for recomendations for replacement radio/stereo/DVD

My suggestion is to actually look at a radio display where sold and see just how hard it would be to adjust sound, station, mode without taking your eyes off the road. I replaced mine and I have to be at a dead stop in order to do any of the above. How I miss the simple two knob and 5 push buttons of my old Chevy.

RE: Radiator needs exterior cleaning

My rear radiator/Cummin's started overheating at 30,000 miles. I bought it used. I spend a lot of money having it removed and cleaned. Since that time, the slobber tube has been extended and routed down below the radiator. I also take advantage of the DIY car washes that have a 14' bay. I just pressure wash it from the rear, insuring that I hold the wand at a 90 degree angle to the fins and slowly move one or two rows at a time until I have covered the entire radiator. I never have an overheating problem so I'm sure the re-routing of the slobber tube is a big contributor to it, but the pressure washing just makes me feel better about it. BTW: I know the next post will say that I could bend the fins on the radiator but I have never bent one in 11 years of fulltiming.

RE: Installing an inverter to run my TV and DVD player

First your needs are simple and a small inverter will work fine. But for an inverter, any size, you need adequate wiring from the battery to the inverter. I don't think the antenna wiring is going to be adequate. I'd suggest running 12 ga. wire directly from your battery (fused) and grab the negative at the closest point to the inverter or directly to the battery also. OR: if the TV and components are on a dedicated circuit, you could mount the inverter close to the battery and run a smaller wire to the wires that now feed the AC to the TV. Just make sure you interrupt the circuit so you don't have the possibility of two 110v circuits trying to power the same item.

RE: Thinking seriously about a used DP, never had a diesel

My MH is very similar to the one you described. Its an Expedition which is the kissing cousin to the Discovery. Same chassis and engine except my tranny is a 5 speed. The rocker for the engine brake should be on the arm rest console under the drivers side window along with other misc switches. It has a white circle with an R in the middle of it. The 270 hp engine is adequate for the size you described. I tow an Equinox and yes you will slow down to 35 or 40 mph on long steep grades. But it does give me excellent fuel mileage. I'd quote the numbers but I'd get flames calling me a liar. The engine is rock solid but at 80,000 miles the external parts are starting to give me maintenance problems. The fan self destructed, fuel pump, belts and hoses etc. But the quiteness of the ride makes it a very good choice.

RE: RC planes

Hershey, have you tried the one at Yuma just off RT 95? Also a very nice one at North Bingham County Park in Shelley, ID.I've flown in both the AMA field at Yuma and the county dirt field just down 95 by the shooting range. Dirt field is well kept but always windy, the AMA field is of course asphalt and always busy but seldom bothered by higher winds. Not flown in Shelley ID. The park we winter in in Star Valley WY has a pristine grass field and 160 acres of flat grass to fly over...Best kept secret.

RE: RC planes

Glad your getting the support needed for a field. As a fulltimer, I fly a lot of cow pastures but also some really nice AMA fields. Menifee has a great dirt field and Hemet CA has a county or city field but not too well maintained. Oddly, Quartzsite has one of the nicest facilities anywhere.

RE: Baseball's strike zone ??

Not knowing very much about baseball and the rules but I did referee soccer for over 20 years. One thing for sure, every call or no call is a yes/no decision made at the blink of an eye. The same instance (pitch and ball location) could get two different calls from the same official. I suppose some officials could be less lenient in their perception of a strike zone just as a soccer official might be more lenient on an off-side call.

RE: Elio Motors Start-up.

My only knee jerk reaction would be the meeting of government standards for safety. That alone would be a major stumbling block.

RE: Being pulled over by LEO

A very interesting thread. First, the only time I've been stopped was at a DUI checkpoint and the officer just looked at me thru the window and asked me a few questions and sent me on my way. But I find it interesting to see how many people are so paranoid about the police entering their MH. Whats the big deal? If the situation presented itself, I'd ask the officer in to sit and have a cold drink or a cup of coffee. Course, I don't think I fit the profile of a gangbanger or dope head but not all gangbangers and dope heads look like gangbangers and dope heads either.

RE: DP started overheating after a repair

Hmmm.. garage that put blades backwards on good garage list? Sure customer service stands up to garage errors, but I would think twice about going there. This way, or the other I would love to see pictures?I posted it on my FB page. On edit: Sometimes you don't have a great choice of garages when your dead in the water on I-40. Actually, I was quite comfortable with this garage, had a lot of trauma fining the right parts for the reassembly and all in all, they did a very good job, I think the repairman just had a brain fart and was used to working on larger trucks, and if that were the case, the blade would have been correct.

RE: DP started overheating after a repair

Update: I got a hold of the garage that did the repair in AZ. Got thru to the GM and he was a bit tentative at first in believing that they did the error. After a few more words, very calmly, I explained the way it is facing and he agreed that it is indeed backwards. He asked for some time to check with his service dept and called me back. He indicated since I was nearly 1000 miles away, he would arrange for a local garage to reverse the fan blade for me. What more could I ask for. Wish every garage or dealership took care of business the same way.

RE: DP started overheating after a repair

Thanks for the input and verification. I'll call the repair facility in Winslow AZ tomorrow but I just can't help but believe I'll be blow off. I'll report my finding. Thanks to wolfe10 for getting me pointed in the right direction.
