RE: The Costco effect

I've been a member of Costco since the first location opened in Seattle, years and years ago. The Costco effect can be impressive. Back in the late 80's I could pay for a years membership with one purchase, like the old tape-deck answering machine, or a set of tires. Since then the other stores have squeezed their profit margins a bit. Locally, the price leader on Gas is, as often as not, the local tribal owned gas stations.

RE: The Costco effect

Depending on where you are, it may! The Woodinville Wa. store is installing diesel pumps right now and who knows where else they may pop up. That's not the first one actually. A handful have diesel, but what it takes to convince Costco to add diesel, I have not a clue.

RE: LED night lite solutions?

Check this night light from Harbor Freight. Works great. Motion sensor run on 3 AA batteries. Really light up the night. Batteries last about 6 month if used all the time. See link below. http://www.harborfreight.com/led-motion-sensor-light-95276.html WalMart was selling these awhile ago and we tried one, the DW said it was too bright and wrecked her night vision. BTW, they take 4 AA, not three.

RE: LED night lite solutions?

Back year (and years, like nearly 20) I soldered 7 red LEDs in series and hot-glued them into a standard "lighter" base. This plugs into the 12V "outlet". I used this in the first RV I used this in the 2nd RV I used this in the 3rd RV It's still in use in the fourth RV. This kluge has been running 24/7/365 for, well, like I said, nearly 20 years.

RE: LED night lite solutions?

Harbor Freight.:) GET 5-6 OF THEM AND PUT INSIDE YOUR RV, There is a magnet on the back, along with a swivel hook. .... :B I have a bunch of these, but "night-lights", not really, they are quite bright. Amazingly bright

RE: Campgrounds near Zion and Bryce

FYI Watchman CG has a max (combined) length of 50 ft, South and Lava Point are smaller. My -guess- is you will end up in one of the commercial, outside the park, campgrounds.

RE: Outside "Entertainment Center" 120v Outlet Issue

It would be every unusual for a Water-Heater to be wired into the outlets. Check your main power breaker and I'll bet you that there is a separate breaker for the water-heater. My guess, if all the other outlets work is that the feed wire is open someplace. Maybe at the outlet just before the outdoor one.

RE: inverters

I wired in a Xantrek ProWatt, with the transfer switch and wired remote. This allows me to run one entire circuit of the rig off the inverter

RE: Any info on North American RV?

NorthAmerican and MonteCarlo produce mostly for the Carnie and Traveler folk. So they don't worry about things like fitting into public campgrounds. Personally, if I wanted a custom (at custom prices) I would talk to New Horizon. Mind you they will not be cheap. But they will produce exactly what you want. Plus they actually have "cred" in the full-time RV world.

RE: Urgent!! Brand new furnace not working

Yea The fan isn't even coming on. Its gotta be something beyond my capabilities at this point. I guess it was sheer luck it fired up briefly. Can anyone recommend an electric heater to get me through until I can get this fixed. Camper is only 16 feet long. Check the 12VDC fuse, replace as needed. Any 750/1500 watt heater

RE: Urgent!! Brand new furnace not working

If there is power to the furnace the problem is certainly the controller board inside the furnace (assuming the A/C still turns on)

RE: Best no contract cell phone?

$15.00 to much? Click here See my note on Trac. T-Mobile can be less then $100 per year.

RE: Best no contract cell phone?

T-Mobile probably has the cheapest "no contract" plan coupled with real customer service. I used to have a TRACFONE, the old phone was years old so I bought a new one and called Trac to have my number changed. They hosed it up and told me they couldn't fix and and restore my old number. Then I needed to add money, added it on the phone and the money didn't appear. Called Trac and they told me due to the mis-configure when they didn't move my old number over, the $100 I added had gone to another number and there was nothing they could do. I bumped up, and up, at least two levels, and they all said there was no method for them to put the money on my card. At least with T-Mobile, I can walk into the local sales office and get someone in person.

RE: What 5 R's are Aluminum Framed

FYI Its really about quality not materials. Many good rigs are built with Aluminum framing because it's easier to get consistent quality. But some of the best, say like most (all?) New Horizon and Excel by Peterson are wood. Don't walk away from an excellent rig simply because it's wood

RE: How to avoid bad campgrounds

We do a lot of coastal late-fall/winter/early-spring camping. There will be some people in the campgrounds at all times, but certainly few crowds. About the only time they are "crowded" is on Clamming Weekends (sometimes actually full)

RE: Second transmission cooler?

Get the Transcommand rather then the cooler, it really does help any "over-heat" issues from urban or hills. Plus it lowers the failure rate. I had an E4OD and had it installed on the recommendation of a friend that owned a Trany Shop. He found it lowered the failure rate on Ford based tow-trucks down to "what it should be"

RE: Warranty work on WFCO converter

If they don't replace under warranty and want you to pay, junk it and get a Progressive Dynamics with Charge Wizard.
