RE: How's your A/C working?

Sounds like a good investment! As far as the heat pump goes I have been told they are only good down to a certain temp.About 40 degrees and 32 degrees if it has defrost cycle capability.

RE: Replacing my microwave....

All of my micros were home units and it's annoying (with frequent travel) that there is no battery backup for the clock. AFAIK there are no RV designed micros.

RE: Replacing my microwave....

Our combo unit is in a slide out and vents inside, an option on some units. It also mounts on a back plate and not from the top, another option. So venting and adequate support for the back plate need to be considered.

RE: shore power connection led light flashing ??

OK, that sounds like the charger isn't on which seems consistent with the blue led not on. ie Most newer chargers don't need the battery connected to run the lights. Normally I'd use a voltmeter to find the problem. It could be a loose wire, etc. However with a new rig the dealer might be the best option.

RE: shore power connection led light flashing ??

I am having the same issue with our Power cord for our 2015 Sunseeker. It is less than 1 month old and when we plugged it in originally both the wall plug and the unit plug were lit blue. Now only the wall plug is lit blue and nothing on the unit is lit. There is no power going into the unit because we turned the battery off and tried to turn on lights and nothing worked. I called the Forest River helpline and they said this plug is new for them and they might need to refer us to a service center. If it is something we can do ourselves we would rather do it than to drive to the dealership for it to sit for a while...With the wall plug lit you have AC power to the rig. Does any of the AC equipment work? The lights are 12V and need either the charger which uses AC or the battery. Do you have DC voltage and do the lights work when the battery is switched on? Keep the battery charged with a auto charger if required. Discharged batteries have a shorter life.

RE: Banned items for border crossing into Canada

The big 3 are guns (no), firewood (no) and alcohol (limited). If these are a problem then perhaps stay in the US. We minimize other potential items mentioned earlier. That way we don't have to go back to a storage location. One year US agents took our tomatoes (I ate one) and the regulation came in that day.

RE: Winegard Video Switch box connections and rear TV

The wingman is a snap on addition that improves UHF reception for older antennas since most DTV stations are in the UHF frequencies.

RE: Winegard Video Switch box connections and rear TV

Another test is to run a coax from the rear TV coax (at the TV) using a barrel connector to the front TV. Then you know if it's the coax or TV. If it's the coax try the outside TV coax. Also remove the splitter for the rear TV. Batwing checking is secondary to the non working rear TV as you have a good signal to the front TV. Disconnect the 12V power to the box with a distant station to determine if the batwing is working as expected. If a wingman is not installed add it first checking that you have the additional clearance on the roof. BTW You'll want a spare coax for the cable connection if you don't have one. Barrel connectors are available at various stores.

RE: Winegard Video Switch box connections and rear TV

On my prior rig the unit supplies the power to the antenna and hence no wall plate. The Aux should not be necessary for the front TV. I suspect that the unit has been rewired either internally or externally, perhaps due to the converter box. Reason: It's likely that the converter box could not be connected to the coax going to the antenna because of the DC voltage being sent up to the batwing. Anything connected to the Aux input? Is the converter box removed? "I direct connected the Rear TV to the coax input to the splitter." Is that a typo? The input to the splitter should go back to the unit and the outputs to the storage and rear TVs.

RE: Winegard Video Switch box connections and rear TV

Isolate the problem. Run a temporary coax inside the rig from the rear TV to the video box or even the front TV coax using a barrel connector. A weak signal could be the rear TV or the coax or a splitter.

RE: TV Antenna

Google non directional tv antenna and you'll get a variety of hits. The round non directional type could be attached to the roof with 3M VHB tape and you might need a larger base for mounting. I would get the amplified version. I have a amplified flat wave antenna attached to a window on the inside. It's bidirectional but otherwise works well. Just another option.

RE: Is a 50amp service worth the upgrade?

I always wondered why they did not use a 30 amp 120/240 volts service, or upgrade slightly to a 8 gauge power cord and use 40 amp 120/240 volt service, that is more than enough to run a RV, with only a tiny upgrade in wire size and weight. #8 wire is much more flexible than the heavy duty #6 wire used in a 50 amp service. Try getting one of those out on a day when it snowed, and the wire is very stiff.I wondered why a non standard 30A RV plug was chosen. It's certainly caused a few problems when wired for 240V. Historically: 20A for RVs. Then larger RVs needed more power so 30A became the common plug. And today's rigs meet the demand of more power usage with 50A including even 3 AC's. And the 50A plug is a common household plug/circuit. Yes plastic 50A cords are stiff when cold and few rigs have rubber cords.

RE: Is a 50amp service worth the upgrade?

Question, does the bigger service stop the breaker from tripping when using multiple larger items.. Ex: Can I count on getting nice and cool after my shower (a/c) and my wife use the blow dryer at the same time. How about a toaster, microwave and a/c?Yes you can run all of them and more at the same time. What you may not know: 30A is 120v 3 wire 50A is 240/120V 4 wire and for RVs it effectively 2 50A 120V circuits, so your have a total of 100A at 120V available.

RE: KOA Green River Utah

Were you in a 30A site? Wonder if the 50A sites have low voltage?
CA Traveler 07/17/14 11:47am RV Parks, Campgrounds and Attractions
RE: KOA Green River Utah

Be aware-the power in this campground is way below 110-120 volts.Air conditioners will not work,took reading of a low of 93 to 101 volts.The operators stated that electrician had tested and all was ok-is 93 volts ok??Just a WARNING!!93V is NOT acceptable. The expected voltage is 120V +-10% or 108-132V. 93V is definitely extremely hard on motors.

RE: shore power connection led light flashing ??

Perhaps use a replacement with no led. I don't care for the led in the cover as the wires have to flex and bend. Take a picture of the wiring before disconnecting.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

Only one ship can dock at Haines and it's further from the downtown area. Therefore more cruisers stay on the ship. Throughout Alaska and Canada you'll encounter cruisers. The high end cruise ship busses take the high end cruisers (I could not resist) to the cruise ship high end resorts. Yup the cruise ships own the resorts where they take the cruisers for another experience including the opportunity to spend more money.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

We choose the waterfront view of Oceanside. Yes the sites are small but we had or 42' in one and what a great view! We really enjoyed the NPS tour in Skagway and all of the history. NPS owns 6 historic buildings in Skagway. Skagway like Juneau has multiple ship capacity and Caribbean jewelry stores. As in the same products and the same people with their white shirt and tie. If you like that and the crowds from 5-6 ships then...
