RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

...If there is one thing I should know is you don't move into some territories unless you are willing to do the job yourself.... LOL! I can SO relate to that! :B We recently had our laundry area moved upstairs from the basement. The plumber asked Garland, "Does your husband ever do the laundry?" Garland replied something like, "I don't ask him to do laundry, and he doesn't ask me to change the oil." :B

RE: HELP Security Camera Ideas suggestions?

Years ago I read an article in our local newspaper about this very problem. Owner had multiple break-ins. Owner wired a 12 gauge to the door. Open the door more than a foot and BOOM! Result, thief dead. Owner acquitted. I probably wouldn't suggest you try this in todays liberal society but it worked well 30 years ago.That is a seriously bad idea, no matter what society you live in.

Awning LED lights waterlogged???

The LED strip lights at the end of my Carefree of Colorado awning have, over time, gotten what appears to be water inside portions of it. This has apparently caused a number or the LED's to not light up in those areas. It's all kind of weird. :h When we bought the RV new three years ago, it had water in the LED light strip even then. Before we took possession, we had the dealer replace the strip. It was fine for about a year, and now it has gradually been infiltrated with water again, causing the same problem of some LED's not lighting up. Anybody else ever had this problem??? :? This is the type of LED strip light I have http://www.carefreeofcolorado.com/images/photos/temp/White_LEDs_on_Coach2.jpg

RE: 50amp shore power outlet to 15amp "side of house" receptacle

Secure yes, but it has much less actual contact area. Not a problem until high amperage devices are in use. The other issue is finding one "on the road" vs going to Walmart for "standard" 50 or 30 amp connectors. You may be hard pressed to find a replacement. Twist lock would not be my choice for an upgrade. Interesting post. Why not? It's likely the most secure shore power connection you can make.Seeing as how this connector is strictly for use here at my house, I'm not gonna worry too much about finding a replacement "on the road". When I am actually camping, the normal shore cord will be used.

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

....I did at one time send my pictures to Wal-Mart to have them processed. The quality wasn't that good and some faded after a while so I decided it wasn't worth it.....Richard, like you, photography used to be my profession. I have always been pretty picky about photo quality. Our local Costco does a real nice job with my digital pictures. I just upload them to their photo website and pick them up at my local "warehouse". You might give them a try, if you are a member. It looks like Greenville is your closest.

RE: Degenerative Myelopathy (DM)

Our Bliss (GSD) is not showing signs of DM, but has been diagnosed with an anal gland tumor which is spreading. She just turned 13 in June and we cannot afford the 10K for radiation therapy or the 800 a month for chemo. We are just making her as comfortable as possible until the day comes to say goodbye.So sad.:(

RE: Degenerative Myelopathy (DM)

The possibility of this terrible disease is dreaded by those who have GSD's. :( I certainly hope the trial discovers some useful information.

RE: How to Go From Parks Coax Cable Into HDMI of TV Set

ANTENNA is the EXACT same as Cable input from the Campground. READ the set up instructions for the TV as it relates to connecting Coax for the TV. Once you are connected to Campground Cable with standard Coax cable, you will have to go into the TV Antenna set up screen and TELL the TV you are on CABLE, not Antenna and then it will walk you thru programming the Campground Cable stations. HDMI/USB and the yellow/Red/White have nothing to do with Cable or Antenna. They have nothing to do with what you want to do. Doug PS, you do not have to order anything. This post nails it. X2

RE: How to Go From Parks Coax Cable Into HDMI of TV Set

My TV is a new Samsung flat screen. The only coax input on the back of it says "antenna". Wonder if I could hook the park tv coax into that?....We have a Samsung smart tv, only a few month old. It allows you to scan for channels either over the "air" or "cable".

RE: How to Go From Parks Coax Cable Into HDMI of TV Set

This should work for you.I think the OP wants to get the park cable programming, not OTA.

RE: How to Go From Parks Coax Cable Into HDMI of TV Set

I'm no expert either, but I don't think you can do what you're talking about. I think you would have to have either a cable or satellite box to connect the coax to, and then run an HDMI cable from that box to your TV set. Doesn't your TV set have coax input?:?

RE: 50amp shore power outlet to 15amp "side of house" receptacle

Thank you all for your suggestions. Since this electrical connection is strictly for maintaining the battery, I think I will just stick with my present 15amp outlet. Anyway, I found this at Amazon, which looks to be exactly what I was looking for: https://www.amazon.com/Power-TechON-RVA4016-Twist-Adapter/dp/B01K0MBYDE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1502216394&sr=8-1&keywords=Power+TechON+RVA4016+RV+Twist+Lock+Adapter

50amp shore power outlet to 15amp "side of house" receptacle

I am having my 30amp 5th wheel converted to 50amp service. I park my RV on the side of my house, where there is a 15amp household outlet less than 8 feet away. I have always plugged my 30amp cord into that outlet, using a 30 to 15amp adapter. Here's the deal. My 30amp cord was of the old "pull it out of the little hatch" variety. I only had to pull the cord out slightly to hook it up to the 15amp outlet. No muss, no fuss. The new 50amp service cord will be of the "twist-lock" type. Therefore, I would have to have the entire, 25 foot cord outside, laying on the ground, in order to use it with an 50/15amp adapter. I would rather not do that. The ideal situation would be some sort of a short, 50amp twist-lock cord or adapter that I could plug into the nearby 15amp outlet. The long 50amp shore cord not being used at all. Any ideas would be appreciated.:@

RE: A very old stray {The Old Fella Story}

Walter, I have not yet had my photos removed,nor have I even received notice from them. I don't use the hosting service often (the last time in March), and they seem to be directing this primarily at high users. That does not mean so-called "low-use" subscribers won't eventually be charged, although they apparently do offer to "migrate" your photos, whatever that means (I got that from a newspaper article). I'm not surprised, I believe that we will soon see the end of most "free" internet services, as increasing costs and competition for limited advertising money makes them unprofitable. Gary, I had heard of PB doing this months ago to some people, but I never got a notification until a couple days ago. I have no idea when they decide to give people the bad news, but I thought I was going to get lost in the cracks. No such luck.:S I was certainly not a heavy user, I only had a total of about 160 low res photos on their site, with only a few of those ever linked to another site, primarily RV.NET.

RE: 2006 KZ Sportsmen slide problems

I had the exact same symptoms on our 2013 KZ Durango. You could hear the motor turn, but nothing was happening. It turned out to be a bolt that had come loose, and was not holding the motor engaged with the gears. The bolt was still there, but was way loose. If you have not done so already, you should pull the belly wrap away from the suspect motor/gear area and inspect it while someone tries to operate the slide. On ours, the access "slit" in the belly wrap was secured with a plastic tie. You oughta be able to see what's going on then.

RE: Pets- unpopular viewpoint

....You should not allow your dog to go up to someone just assuming they will want to make over it unless invited. ... Interestingly, I have always had an inverse problem. Sitting at our campsite or walking our dog(s), people approaching us without asking in order to see and/or pet our dog(s). Some of your other points I agree with, some others I do not. C'est la vie. :)
