RE: St. George Island fl. campground

I have been there twice with no mosquitoes, but it was either fall or spring - not summer. Depending on where you are in the campground the walk to the beach would probably be longer than most would care for. Regarding stores, the closest are about 5 miles from the campground - half of that through the state park itself. Speed limit is 25-35mph, so it is not a quick trip.

RE: ac qusetion

Only have 1 unit. Start capacitor does not show any wear... I'm no expert, but I don't think you can always tell a bad capacitor by outward appearance. Mine certainly looked fine, but I replaced it and it started working. Maybe there is some way to test the voltage of the capacitor but that is beyond my knowledge level.

RE: ac qusetion

Could be the start capacitor. If you have two of the same units, you could swap the capacitors out and see if it helps. If you give it a go, be sure to discharge the capacitor before removing it. I had the opposite problem - the blower motor would not start. A new capacitor got it going.

RE: Light Switch above sink and stove

I'd vote for water pump

Generic remote for DirecTV?

Search was not working for me this morning, so will ask - is there any universal remote that will work with DirecTV? I just had my third DirecTV RC65 remote break and getting tired of buying them! This is the second time the little switch at the top that switches between components - something inside just broke off and is rattling around. Hoping there is something more reliable that works with DirecTV basic features at least.

RE: Microwave/Convection Combo -- Good idea?

I like mine. Bakes fine in convection mode, also has a "mixed" mode where it uses both convection and low power microwave to expedite cooking - good for meats, etc.

RE: Upgrading to new GPS

You may want to ask the same question over on the Garmin forums. I recently moved from a StreetPilot 27xx to the Nuvi 2555LMT and was a bit disappointed on how it worked with Base Camp. Specifically, it only has a limited number of vehicle profiles compared to Base Camp, and probably related to that if I plan a route in BaseCamp using my RV (or bus) profile, when I transfer it to the Nuvi it is completely recalculated using the vehicle profile. This would typically result in a route where I would not want to take my DP and toad. I use my GPS in both DP and toad, and it seems this one was not the best for me. With all the models they have, it is not clear which one I should have gotten - they sure make it complicated. Anyway, there are some VERY knowledgeable folks on the Garmin forums and they may be able to best answer your questions. I have not tried using MapSource with mine to see if the route is maintained from MapSource to device, but I am skeptical. It sounds like that is your expectation, so you are right to research it.

RE: Windows XP

You can keep using it, there will just be no further fixes or security updates. I also believe you will be stuck on Internet Explorer 8 if that is your browser of choice.

RE: Replacing a fridge

Just had a Norcold 1200 replaced with a Fisher & Paykel counter depth french door model and both went through the entry door once the doors were off the fridges. Didn't even have to remove the captain's chairs.

RE: [REPORT] - Norcold 1200 replaced with Fisher & Paykel

Might I suggest that you add an easier security option. I use this latch and it looks like it would work perfectly on your new fridge. Fridge lock Thanks, since I am parked more than moving, I prefer to have something that disappears when I am not in transit. I can get the strap on in about 3 seconds, so hard to get much easier than that.

[REPORT] - Norcold 1200 replaced with Fisher & Paykel

Exactly a month ago, I posted that my 10 year old Norcold finally bit the dust (see post). I wanted to report back with the outcome. As I mentioned, I was very space constrained on height due to the fridge being over a furnace. Also with the fridge being halfway in the hallway going to the back bedroom, I definitely needed something counter-depth and with double doors. The only decent size unit that would fit was the Fisher & Paykel RF170ADX4. I had the work done at Creative Coach in Lakeland, FL. While they are not cheap, after interviewing them and others I felt they had the knowledge and skill to get the job done right. Here are the before and after photos. http://www.tlkemp.com/images/norcold1.jpg http://www.tlkemp.com/images/norcold2.jpg http://www.tlkemp.com/images/fridge1.jpg http://www.tlkemp.com/images/fridge2.jpg I am looking forward to the extra space, better cooling, actually having everything in the freezer FROZEN and not having to defrost! Oh, almost forgot... In other posts, folks showed how they secured the doors while driving. This never came up when I was working with Creative - I had other work they were doing for me, and I forgot about this detail. Here is what I chose to do that results in no permanent modification to the cabinet. I had some of these little straps I found at Container Store and I think that is all that is needed to make sure the fridge doors do not swing open. The freezer drawer takes a good but of pressure to open, so I don't think it will open during transit. http://www.tlkemp.com/images/strap1.jpg http://www.tlkemp.com/images/strap2.jpg

RE: How many of you are running your AC units?

In the Tampa area of Florida, it is AC by day, heat pump by night.

RE: Monaco towables shut down

"Employees at the Elkhart plant were greeted by security guards who would not allow them in the plant or office........" Says a lot about the 'character' of a company and how it 'feels' about employees Yep, pretty disgraceful. Could have been handled better rather than wait until folks show up for a new work day.

RE: Millenicom Question

I have the 20 GB plan for 69.99 and they will allow an annual 3 month vacation period with no charge to re-activate.

RE: Motorhome Sales People

Yep, dealers like a big spread on trade in vs market value. For example, when my Dad passed, we looked at trading in his 18 month old F-150 King Ranch with 5K miles and get my Mom a new car. The Lincoln/Ford dealership offered around $19K on the trade. We sold it ourselves for around $33K.

RE: Who do you have insurance with?

Just changed to Geico. Rates were best by moving my toad from Progressive, who couldn't even come close on a combined policy.

RE: goblin tippers convicted.

5 yes is a bit much. They have families to raise and such. A couple hundred hours of community service in the park and a good fine should send a message to the public. Disagree, idiots like these belong in jail. And recall, he was demonstrating his fathering skills in this shot - pretty sure that was his son he was high-fiving after knocking the rock over.

RE: goblin tippers convicted.

From what I read, just charges were finally filed. No trial yet... http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/home3/57478685-200/value-hall-formation-state.html.csp
