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: Running 2 AC's on 30 amp

then one use of the microwave, and you're popping breakers... without an EMS of course..

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..

RE: Installed Tank Flush System

my quickie flush is installed on the side of my tank, mid way, with the drain directly to the right of it. Works fine.. The main thing is these spray water all over anyway and will rinse just fine either way... optimally you'd be pointing directly at the drain, but you can't always have perfection..

RE: Atwood stovetop grate "melting"

I had this same issue with my older 2002 fifth wheel... Same Atwood range, same style of grates.. sagging, cracked porcelain grates... I just took a hammer once in a while and bent them back... not worth the $$ ..

RE: TV recepytiom

which antenna are you using, and older style batwing? I upgraded to a Jack Antenna... what a difference!

RE: Propane Quick Connector hose to BBQ

Camco makes a series of hoses, with the quick disconnects.. but what I can tell you is there are small differences between manufacturers... Mr. Heater also makes disconnects, and I can tell you from experience, while they look similar, they are not compatible.. Stick with one brand, and you'll be ok...

RE: Propane plumbing - adding cat heater

I added CAT heater by putting a black pipe fitting to flare 3/8" copper tubing. Tubing run unto interior compartment, where I put a gas rated ball valve with flare connection. Rubber hose to propane quick disconnects from there. This is what I'm trying to figure out - what parts should I get. For now, only talking about above the floor part. So there is a bare end of 3/8 OD copper pipe sticking out of the floor inside, in the "interior compartment" - under dinette bench. The heater is about 2ft away. What parts do I need to get from the bare copper pipe to 3/8" flare of the heater? Rubber hose inside is not safe - technically, but still an option if nothing else will do, and it is easy. A piece of 3/8" copper sounds better for this purpose - more difficult, yes. Go copper all the way... I did rubber with disconnects since my heater is portable and I like to put it away.

RE: Need advice

for starters, 12 gauge wire is rated for 20A.. That being said, if you watch what you're consuming and keep it under 20A, you'll be fine.. The minute you crank on an AC unit, you're risking burning up that extension cord. Why not invest in a 10 gauge extension to make your life a bit more peaceful?

RE: How cold is too cold

As long as you're running the heat at night and your underbelly is covered, you'll be fine, the cabin heat will keep the entire trailer above freezing... As another poster mentioned, if you have a city water connection, you may want to disconnect it over night, or turn it off..
