RE: 12 volt Smart TV?

So the TV requiring a 15-19VDC brick is acceptable adapting to a 12 volt RV system?I wouldn't imagine so. Perhaps a DC/DC inverter - but for that trouble you may as well use a real inverter. Sorry missed your post.. I will agree with you that 15-19VDC sounds to high for a 12.5-14.5 volt system.

RE: 12 volt Smart TV?

So the TV requiring a 15-19VDC brick is acceptable adapting to a 12 volt RV system? Lets forget about my smart TV question.. The Voltage is what prevented me from buying a TV in the past because the transformer range was 15-19VDC.. Again.. Is that the acceptable voltage range for a camper/rv?

RE: 12 volt Smart TV?

Any TV with an AC to DC power brick will have the Input and Output voltages listed on the brick. So there is no need to go to the store and test. Most smaller LCD TV's would use some sort of power brick. As far as Smart TV's are concerned, what do you mean? Internet enabled for apps like Netflix? I cant find any voltage info regarding the brick when I shop online. Thus, I'd have to go to the store and read the brick. Not test. Yes.. Netflix etc. But maybe a dumb TV with a Roku 3 would be a better choice.

12 volt Smart TV?

I know some people have had good luck buying a TV with 120v/12v transformers, and powering them from the RV's 12 volt system without the TV transformer or a inverter. I read you need to go to the store and look at the transformer to be sure its 12 volt since manufactures don't generally list that info.. So my question is.. Do any smart TV's come with a 120v/12v transformer? I need a new tv and it would be nice to be able to watch it at home and while camping in the RV.. Thanks!

RE: ~Post your campsite photos here~

Gregory- Those campgrounds out west sure are different from what we are used to. Looks pretty nice though. You can say that again.. Our wifes would have mowed over those unprotected utilities long ago.

Wow. Jasper National Park, Alberta, Canada is more majestic than anything in the USA looks like. How's the dispersed camping in that area?

RE: ~Post your campsite photos here~

I just got back from Crested Butte area.. Here are a few from Almont cg north of gunnison co.. Perfect. My kinda place. There's even better Jared. After a car fire up monarch pass.. Strangers leaving glasses in my open trailer, shooting class II rapids on the gunnison with a tandem lake kayak, riding 1/2 a dozen 4x4 roads on my dirt bike, and lucky enough mother nature didn't drop all that Colorado rain in my valley.. I'd call it a great solo trip. Kind of lonely though. Oh, I blew up my cummins van doing it. Well, that paints a slightly-different picture. What happened to the Cummins? The cummins started blowing white smoke and we thought a minute head gasket water leak. But now looks more like injector problems destroyed a cylinder since I have massive blowby now, I believe. Ran strong the entire time. 65+ Im waiting until my day off wednesday to run it so less chance my neighbors call the fire department. Infrared and crack each line. But I fear the worst

RE: Dry RV site suggestions between Gunnison and Crested Butte?

Thanks everyone.. I'm not sure my 2wd and the 24'er will allow me to access Lake Irwin or the like. I talked to USNF and she told me no dry camping permitted between Gunnison and cement creek, contrary to a trusted source, so I hope I find something suitable at cement or the site she recommended, Almont CG, just south of town on 135.

Dry RV site suggestions between Gunnison and Crested Butte?

I'm heading to Gunnison colorado area beginning of September and hoped someone might pm me with a dry RV site suggestion or scenic road between Gunnison and Crested Butte. Im pulling a 24' TH which has 4" lift kit, but with only 2 wheel drive TV. I figured Almont triangle.. But am open to other suggestions. Thanks!

RE: Trojan battery box grommet please.

Any hardware store has a grommet. They do.. But only for thin sheet metal. They wouldnt stay put on the 3/16" material I have.. I decided to come in from the bottom for a clean look. http://i640.photobucket.com/albums/uu127/re-rod/featherlite/AB4A4DC0-0538-459B-946E-A08F1BDC3728-12254-000005DF0C6E88CB_zps669fb1c3.jpg

RE: Anyone have issues cooling a 24' TH with a 13500 btu?

Unfortunately.. My featherlite wasn't equipped with a generator (tongue already weighs 1300) and my TV is a van so I cant run a generator underway. I know my NV4500 manual transmission has a PTO.. Wonder if anyone makes a PTO generator for it? I just bought a Honda 2000 and I cant believe it! It runs everything. http://i640.photobucket.com/albums/uu127/re-rod/th_CE46B907-7DF4-4149-8BBE-32C06737EF44-825-00000068B00C509F_zps403a34fc.jpg]13500 0n 2000w

RE: Colorado Mountain bike ski resort for two old fogies?

We typically don't use lifts on our mountain bike adventures, but let me tell you of a few places where there are trails you and your wife might enjoy: You mentioned Buena Vista and there are some great trails there........................... Wow.. thanks 4runnerguy! We will definitely use some of that info in Buena Vista.. But I'm really leaning toward Crested butte for at least sept 6th 7th and 8th.. And I know it sounds cheesy. But it would be nice to have phone service for internet, so I'm seeing the oh be joyful campground has Verizon coverage.. But looking at oh be joyful on google maps, it looks like one big parking lot and no spots for travel trailers.. Is oh be joyful campground only for tents? The ultimatecampgrounds.com site says it has 13 RV sites.. Thanks

RE: Colorado Mountain bike ski resort for two old fogies?

I read your post and I"m trying to find out who/whom the old fogies are. If 45 and 47 then you have a long way to go to hit fogiedom. Try adding 20 years to each of those numbers and then you'll know fogie. Thanks, The old fogie I apologize.. That old fogie comment came in when I posted this same question on a mountain bike forum.. And I'm guessing we WILL be the "old fogies" in Evolution Bike Park when we visit.. Is this a good resource map for campgrounds in crested butte? http://www.ultimatecampgrounds.com/uc/index.php/colorado-2 We don't mind pay camp sites as long as we have a bit of privacy. And we could scout for a dispersed site from the camp ground. Thanks!

RE: Colorado Mountain bike ski resort for two old fogies?

Maybe this is a little more than you want to read but you can travel a few more miles and go to Moab, the mountain biking mecca. Thanks, but we want Colorado scenery this year. We kind of narrowed it down to Winter Park, Keystone area, Crested Butte or snowmass. In fact any resort which has summer mountain biking would be fine as long as we can find a fairly quiet spot to camp within 5 miles or so of the resort.

Area/Road for dry camp close to Winter Park or MTB resort?

Iv got this brainiac idea to visit a Colorado ski resort for some downhill mountain bike MTB coasting. From what I'm reading, Winter park is a great resort with trails for all skill levels. The lifts would get us up above the tree line for some good views since I don't have 4x4. Can someone recommend a area, or road, close to winter park where I might find some dispersed dry camping spots? Im not committed to visiting winterpark, so if you have a different suggestion maybe around Keystone (A-basin pass) or another MTB ski resort, Im all ears because a secluded camping experience would be more important than a 5 star MTB resort. Thanks!

Colorado Mountain bike ski resort for two old fogies?

The wife and I (45 & 47) will be visiting Colorado beginning of September and we really don't have a set agenda. I visited the Pitkin area last year for some off road motorcycling up Cumberland pass etc. But my wife doesn't ride motorcycles, so we are looking for other things to do and I considered Buena Vista area. We will be in a 24' travel trailer/toy hauler, so finding a dispersed camp site would also be needed. We don't want a koa or crowded camp ground. No white water since my buddy and his wife both died on the Arkansas river. Any suggestions on a resort we can enjoy the Colorado highlands at? She is a beginner MTB rider. But I'm looking forward to some white knuckle downhill riding and a lift. I hear Keystone and WinterPark are nice, but I'm not sure about their beginner trails.. The you tube video's Ive seen look fast and steep Im not sure how well we would be received by the other riders if we creep down those trails just for the views. Thanks!
