RE: 19 volt TV

You mean there is a 12 to 19 volt adapter?

19 volt TV

I'm in the process of installing a 32" tv in my Winnebago. My Samsung has an external AC to DC adapter. I was hopeful that I would be able to get an adapter to run it on 12v until I saw the adapter output of 19 volts. I'm guessing that it won't operate on 13 or so volts. Is that correct? I think I will be able to use my little inverter to operate it in a pinch, but it sure would be convenient to have a direct to DC capability. I thought a 32 inch would be almost too big as a replacement or the 19 inch square TV. As it turns out, I could have gone quite s bit bigger. This TV is nice because it only weighs 7 pounds.

RE: 2 adults 2 teenagers in 28' Class A for a week?

They stayed in the tent the entire time. I couldn't believe it. They spent their days at the beach. Tomoka is a wild (as in natural) place. We didn't have room for the AC, but they didn't need it. It rained several nights, but the tent didn't leak a drop. I was afraid they would see a snake and want to keep everything in the camper.

RE: Fort Desoto Park - Tampa Bay in Nov - good/bad/ugly?

For some reason I was under the impression that out of county residents had to appear personally for reservations. Does anybody know whether or not that is true? I had written that place off.

RE: Wind push P-32; Sumo Springs or Super Springs?

I still get the push; that's just physics. The difference is I can control it. Steering input actually works. I just steer left and all is well.

RE: Wind push P-32; Sumo Springs or Super Springs?

Just drove it for a day and a half to Daytona area. It is like a different coach. With a load the Sumo Springs are perfect. I do not understand how the Steer Safe makes such a difference, but it does.

RE: Does serpentine belt run water pump 02 WH 8.1

One is a Dayco KEVLAR and the other is a std Gates. I have to think the Kevlar would be better.

RE: Does serpentine belt run water pump 02 WH 8.1

Got 2 belts and tensioner and idler pulley in the MH in case I need them.

Does serpentine belt run water pump 02 WH 8.1

I've been going through my new to me 2002 Winnebago Sightseer 27c with 8.1 WH P32 chassis. I haven't replaced the serpentine belt yet. Today I bought both a 103 and 108 inch spare, and a new tensioner. I won't have time to replace them before Friday's trip, but didn't want to travel without spares. My question is does the serpentine belt control the water pump? If it does, I'm guessing I need to turn off the engine ASAP if it breaks. It makes no noise, but I don't have much of a service history on this MH with 42,000 miles.

Thanks for the wise counsel. I'm actually looking forward to it now.

RE: Tomoka State Park Florida

Does anyone know if the water is accessible from site 17? According to the map it is right on the water.

RE: 2 adults 2 teenagers in 28' Class A for a week?

When I mentioned I got up at 6:30 she kind of liked the idea of sleeping in the tent. I'll believe it when I see it.

RE: 2 adults 2 teenagers in 28' Class A for a week?

We're going to be in Tomaka in Florida. We don't use the shower and are number one only toilet use. I've got a 5 man tent and two chairs I can put inside, as well as a window AC in one of the doors. They can use that to dress in. We'llbring an extra tv and antenna in case they or me want to use it as a living area.

RE: 2 adults 2 teenagers in 28' Class A for a week?

We leave Friday so no dry run. I'll put a tent up for clothes, but I doubt I can banish them to the tent, although that would be a perfect solution. I can even set an AC in one of the doors!

2 adults 2 teenagers in 28' Class A for a week?

We have a 28' Winnebago Sightseer with a slide. It has a bed in the back and a Dinette; no couch. My 14 year old daughter (a girly girl with acres of clothes) wants to bring a friend for spring break. The dinette is fixed to not turn into a bed, so they will have to sleep in 1 or 2 air mattresses on the floor. Here is the floorplan. floorplan Sounds like a recipe for disaster to me, but I'm being accused of being too negative. We've only been on 1 trip with 2 and it seemed about right with 2 people and a 60 pound dog. Am I being too negative?

RE: Wind push P-32; Sumo Springs or Super Springs?

Added the Sumo Springs and SteerSafe. Made a huge difference. I recommend the SteerSafe for any motor-home. The Sumo Springs really tightened up the rear end of the MH; but it also made it ride a little rougher. It doesn't float like before. Much less left right twist when while turning sharply. It drives much more like my Excursion. I drove it about 20 miles on the interstate and was passed by a few trucks. I probably won't use it again until March when I take it to Florida for Spring break.

RE: Spring Break Suggestions

We're going to Tomoka State Park near Ormond Beach. 5 degrees or so warmer for an average high than the Panhandle.

RE: Excursion dies upon abrupt stop.

Turns out it was low line pressure in the transmission. A filter and flush with synthetic and it's good as new. The first clue was cold weather onset.

RE: Louisville - Bridge detour?

The new bridge is open, but there will still be delays. http://kyinbridges.com/i-65-south-traffic-shifts-to-lincoln-bridge/
