RE: How do I edit my signature?

WHAT if you do not want to take a RV out and put in a new one but add another RV. I have a fifthwheel AND a MH so how to add that? One edits his signature as 1492 indicated above. 'Edit' does not mean you have to replace, you can add anything you want to in the text box. You are limited to a total of 255 characters. Tom

RE: Outer Banks

The KOA has an "interesting" policy. If you want to request a site that is available, when you make the registration, the only way they will guarantee the site is for you to pay an extra $20 fee. Moreover, if two or three RVs are traveling together and reserve adjacent sites (available when registrations were made) the only way they will guarantee you will have adjacent sites when you arrive, is for all parties to pay an additional $20 fee. At least that was their policy last April. They told me it was a benefit they were providing. Tom

RE: Motorized Sun Shade

My "source" is MCD. I called them as I have never heard of that operation and wanted to know if they built a special model. NO, they stated and they explained just what I posted. I deal with both MCD and Auto-Motion which are the 2 major makers of RV electric shades. Doug Just talked to MCD again. They stated that in theory the shade may FULLY retract, but the design is to make sure that small internal spring keeps the shade from falling down and usually just raises a few inches instead of full retraction. Thanks, again, for the info. I will call them today to ask about their false claims. Tom

RE: Motorized Sun Shade

I figured you had the MCD. But, when you stated it would retract when the motor failed, that got me thinking. Yes, there is a spring in the MCD Gold Series. But, IF the motor fails the shade will do nothing. It will NOT retract and it will NOT fall down because of an extra spring. You then have to use a clothes pin or something to pin it up if it fails where it blocks your vision. But, as I stated, it will NOT auto retract when the motor fails. Doug So, you are saying that this statement, "The Solar/Night Shade in your vehicle is equipped with an Automatic Safety Retraction feature, which will retract the Solar/Night Shade to the full upper position in the rare event of an internal motor failure." from the Winnebago Owner's manual and this one, "MCD Switch controlled motors for windshield applications are designed to automatically retract the day or night shade into the full up position in the unlikely event a motor fails." from the product manual and the MCD website are false? Do you have a source? Thanks, Tom

RE: Motorized Sun Shade

... Both of ours, one called the night shade, the other called the solar shade, are limited the same. If the ignition is on, neither can be down lower than visor height. More over, according to the owner's manual, if the drive motor fails, both shades are retracted. Tom Please give Brand of shades. HOW can the shades retract if the motor fails???????? Doug The shades are MCD Innovations Gold Series Duo/Solo Powered Shades. The product manual does not explain how they work. It does say: "Do not attempt to pull down (unroll) the shade nor operate the power switch after deployment.... If the Automatic Safety Retraction Feature is activated, please call MCD for further instructions." Tom

RE: In Defense of Fahrenheit

One of the labs I ran had a cold room. When asked how cold we could make it, I would always answer -40. Then someone would invariably ask, "Is that F or C?" Wait for it...... I would answer, "Yes". Matt :B Tom

RE: Crock pot cooking while traveling?

I put mine in the sink. NO towel. Might cause it to over heat. Works good. The towel is only across the bottom of the sink to help keep the crock pot from sliding. Tom

RE: Motorized Sun Shade

It seems to me that if one can't lower it while driving, it's not really useful. How many of us start out and say to ourselves, "I need to lower the visor now, because I will be driving into the sun in 3 hours. The motorize sun visor on our coach, is use as a night shade. With the engine off, it will lower to cover the entire windshield. With the ignition on, ti will come down only a limit amount. If down when the engine is started, it will raise back up to its limit. Tom They usually have the shades in 2's. A Screen shade and a Blackout solid shade. The screen usually is NOT connected to down parameters. The Black out shade is. IF you have the solid shade ONLY, they try to limit its operation with the Key ON. But that is up to the OEM. Doug Both of ours, one called the night shade, the other called the solar shade, are limited the same. If the ignition is on, neither can be down lower than visor height. More over, according to the owner's manual, if the drive motor fails, both shades are retracted. Tom Please give Brand of shades. HOW can the shades retract if the motor fails???????? Doug Here is the quote from the owner's manual: Automatic Safety Retraction The Solar/Night Shade in your vehicle is equipped with an Automatic Safety Retraction feature, which will retract the Solar/Night Shade to the full upper position in the rare event of an internal motor failure. Should the Automatic Safety Retraction feature deploy, go to your nearest Winnebago Industries® dealer for service before operating the shade again. The "info kit" is in the RV. I'll go out later see if it provides a manufacturer for the shades. Although I've not had the opportunity to observe a motor failure, not do I want to, I assume the shades are somehow spring loaded, as are the manual shades on the other windows. Tom

RE: Crock pot cooking while traveling?

Yes you can. But please make sure its not going to slide around while driving down the road. On the rare occasion we do it. Sarah sets the crock pot in one of the kitchen sinks. (She puts down a towel first.) Tom

RE: Moving threads?

I suspect Gary is referring to this thread Weather guessers calling for nationwide cold blast next week that was moved from General RVing Issues to Around the Campfire. Generally, I don't like questioning a housekeeping matter in the open forum. More appropriate would be to send a private message to the moderator that moved the thread. However, a moved thread does not carry a indicator as which moderator moved it, other than the moderators listed for the forum from which it was moved. Tom

If your post contains a percent symbol and you are using the RV.Net portal to the forum, that is probably the source of your problem. Switch to the Woodall's Portal It is a difference way to enter the same forum with the same user name and password. Tom
