RE: Near Disaster Propane Refuel Experience

Every place I have used insists on portable tanks being removed from the camper. They won't even fill the tank if it's sitting in the bed of my truck and want it on the ground.Same situation for me too.The Pit Stop in Quartzsite will fill portable tanks in a truck bed. It's nice. Most places out west are by the gallon, except parts of Montana.. or so I've found. Darn hard to fill fixed tanks by the pound.

RE: Near Disaster Propane Refuel Experience

Is this a portable cylinder, or attached tanks?Hard to know for sure. OP has no profile, but since he posted in TC, I guess he has one of those. I do not know if TC's have affixed tanks. Perhaps this is why propane refillers won't fill portable tanks in place.

RE: Running a BriskAirII A/C on a Yamaha 2400iSHC Genny !

A buddy of mine was telling me just today how well his Yamaha 2400 runs his 13.5K AC. It only slightly comes off idle to do so.I'd need to see that to believe it. Have him post on youtube.

RE: rubber seals

The only glue necessary is the glue that comes on the seal itself.

This is a CW issue, and really not for public consumption.

RE: Cleaning Graphics

I use any cleaning-type car wax. You have to redo it often.

RE: I-Phone Sat Finding App

When I move my phone left/right the sats move about half as much as I move. x2 Same with SatelliteAR. I rely on my magnetic compass almost all the time.

RE: Converted Stove to push button ignition

Not that this matters now, but, seems odd that stove would come sans igniters. That location is where mine is, and it looks to be the same Atwood stove, and has plenty of room.

RE: I-Phone Sat Finding App

SatelliteAR. The elevation and azimuth given by the receiver is usually enough.

RE: Best cell and data phone plans

gotta love auto-correct. Low data cost comes at the price of questionable coverage and speed. I'm not sure how Verizon handles a Canadian phone in the USA. I don't think "rooming" charges exist anymore, at least not with Verizon. The 'best' plan is one you can afford and live with.

RE: DirecTV self powered setup meter recommendations?

Professional or not, decent meters are expensive. And you already have one in your tuner. Good luck.

RE: Electrical surge protector - Whole house type?

Many RV surge protectors also have low-voltage protection, which is far more likely than surges.I guess you could check the voltage at your site first.Just make sure you do that when everyone is running air.

RE: Solar. What Can It Do?

You are a power hog! :) We spent very little time in the trailer, I guess that is why we never have a shortage of power with 200 watts.I am. I spend time outside too, but not on crappy rainy days. I do a lot of TV recording when I can so that if I'm in trees or just overnighting I have plenty to watch when I don't want to set up the dish.

RE: Solar. What Can It Do?

Thanks, very thorough. What's not mentioned yet is the condition of batteries when boondocking. Older and harder-used ones lose ah capacity, requiring more solar time. Colder batteries don't perform as well. It's difficult to ever get 100% charge into them like I can on the grid. Sure, you can if you don't use much power, but that's not my style. I don't conserve propane or water either.

RE: Solar. What Can It Do?

I'm from the part of the country that would say/ask something like: "I do not understand how you are making that work, could you please provide some details to help me understand?"That had already been asked with no response. If I remove the living in a tent statement, would that make you happy?
