RE: truck

I'm not sure I understand why people are saying a diesel truck has higher operating costs? it certain has much higher purchase cost (more on that).. but the far better fuel economy more than offsets the higher cost of fuel. The oil changes are less frequent when you have 3 gallons of oil in the sump. 15k mile oil changes vs 5k mile oil changes. The lifespan of the engine with a 350k mile life expectancy is where you offset the initial purchase cost.. So where's the extra operating costs?

RE: Opinion About Longer Lasting Better Windshield Blades?

Silblade as well here, they are silicone based, not rubber and will last for years.

RE: Why should I switch to golf cart 6v batteries

Here we go with the max 50% SOC on a true deep cycle battery again..

RE: Mounting TV

to the OP, while it hasn't been specifically been spelled out, your TV must have VESA compliant mounting points in the back, and you need to buy a VESA mount as pictured in the posts above.. After reading the first few posts, I was envisioning people driving screws into the backs of their TV's, and the ensuing horror.. but to each their own, do so at your own risk. Just wanted to add this for clarity..

RE: Fortunately, I did not have a pair of 6v batteries

Wow, an entire battery discussion without someone calling them "jars"... shocking..

RE: Low Tech ......Toilet/Tank Issue

also be careful what type of Toilet Paper you're using... single ply only... I've seen issues when trying to use the "septic approved" and some RV TP as well.. they bulk up at the mouth of the tank and cause blockage...

RE: propane consumption

if you consider that the wave heaters are close to 100% efficient, the RV furnaces are something like 60%-80%... where a large portion of the heat they produce is vented outside. you're saving propane... I bought the Wave8 for my 30ft fiver, it's too small, but it keeps us warm enough..

RE: Camper wire ring

the Wire Ring in your camper is quite complicated, more details please. What gauge ring do you have? also, what material is it made of? gold / silver?

RE: Propane quick disconnect fittings

Amazon carries the Camco ones and others, beware they are not all created equal. I mean that they do not always fit each other. Stick with one brand. Mr. Heater makes some nice ones too.. but they won't work with the Camco ones.. frustrating!

RE: Back-powering 110V system while travelling..

On the dry ice idea, a word of warning... this will freeze the contents of your fridge solid. Unless you insulate your dry ice properly... I'd avoid this approach with a fridge full of drinks and a mess of busted cans and bottles upon arrival.

RE: Graywater drain valve sticking

if it's exposed, replace it... 4 bolts... you're done.. unless it's cable activated.. then you have to find it first..

RE: Replace TV antenna

The added height of a raised antenna can dramatically increase the range of your TV antenna. No matter what you mount on top of those arms, you will always do better the higher the antenna is located. no doubt true, generally speaking, but I can tell you the Jack antenna pulls in the signal much better than my batwing ever did.. it's a fixed 12" high off the roof surface.

RE: Replace TV antenna

Our Winegard TV antenna was broken in a few places during a wind storm. It looks like we need to replace it. We are looking online at Camping World's Winegard Sensor IV Antenna. Has anyone replaced the complete antenna? Is this a project that we could do or would you advise having a technician do it? Thanks! Don I messed up my Batwing last year when I forgot about it, and ran into a tree.. I replaced it completely with the Jack antenna mentioned above, including the base. Now I never have to worry about raising or lowering the thing... and I benefit from the built-in signal meter too.. The replacement is straight forward, the toughest part, as with anything on the roof, is removing the seam sealant (dicor).. once you've cleaned that off, you're just removing screws and replacing the head unit.. not a big deal..
