RE: Radiator vs. CAC vs. Condenser?

You might also have a hydraulic radiator and a tranny radiator.

RE: Simple Electrical help, TT 50 amp to Home 15 amp

I picked up some used 30A cords at a low price.

RE: Will that ladder and roof hold a 300-pounder?

If you need to ask then you know not to get on the ladder.

RE: Directv dvr

Hope we meet up some day, perhaps Tucson? Would love to see your DD. Meet a fellow RVer once with a DD with a V drive, very interesting.

RE: Best TV Satellite set-up?

I just went back to Direct TV a couple of weeks ago after being gone for a while. The new dish on the house is a lot bigger than they used to be. I still have a small dish on a tripod in the attic for the TC. Does anyone know if my smaller, old dish will work with the current versions of service? Or, do I need to buy a new, mobile dish?You won't get HD with the smaller dish if it works at all. The receiver would have to be compatible with both dishes. If the new dish is SWM and the receiver is SWM only then the old dish won't work. Do you have one coax connected to a SWM labeled jack on your receiver? What model receiver do you have? My HR24 (2 channel recorder) worked fine with either a large 2 channel HD dish, SWM (HD) dish or 18" 2 channel SD dish only. There was a different setup for each dish. The HR44 requires a SWM dish. Also check that cabling to each TV is compatible. Plus SD vs HD TVs may be a factor. Lots to consider.

RE: Tag Axle Settings

23,000 lbs doesn't sound right as axle GAWR is limited to 20,000. What is the GAWR on the ID sticker?

RE: Yosemite

99 to 58 to I15. 93 is a good road, then I40. They can visit Hoover Dam but a new bridge bypasses the dam - 911 changed a lot of things. BK may have been referring to snow possibilities. But if going from Vegas to N Rim then another route would be better.

RE: Best TV Satellite set-up?

Domes are limited to SD This is not true. You cannot get DirecTv HD with a dome, but you can get Dish HD with a dome.Good point. Wonder what his options are for Canadian satellite or if US satellite a option.

RE: Flat Inner Dual Tire :-(

There are a number of TPMS threads and Pressure Pro is popular. Mine is SmartTire with sensors inside the tire but after being sold to Bendix they no longer make the controller so I can't recommend it.

RE: Simple Electrical help, TT 50 amp to Home 15 amp

I agree but don't think that is a 50 amp connection. Once the Marinco gets adapted to RV male then adapt to 20 amp. I guess cord didn't come with TT.Check the OPs picture again. It's labeled as 50A 125/250V. The ground connection is the one on the outside shell. This is a standard 4 wire 50A twist lock plug.

RE: Flat Inner Dual Tire :-(

And if you have valve stem extensions and/or rubber stems get rid if them and replace them with steel dual valve kit. Easy to check tire pressure. I also use the small flow through extender so no cap to deal with.

Maybe a TPMS is in your future?

RE: Simple Electrical help, TT 50 amp to Home 15 amp

FireRob, What most of us do is to buy the standard flat blade adapters for the other two standard RV plugs and use our rigs OEM cord. In your case you can get a 50 to 30 adapter for about $20 and you already have the 30 to 20 adapter. And you'll need the 50/30 adapter anyway for CGs with 30A only. You may/may not be able to run your AC. A 12A AC might be OK while a 15A AC is less likely to be OK. Monitoring the voltage and checking the adapters for excessive heat can help determine if it's OK. Be aware that the standard household plug is usually one of many 15A rated plugs on a 20A CB so there might be other draws and long wiring to consider. Considering you're in hot Fort Worth you might want to consider installing a 50A plug in the house. I have a 25 ft 50A extension cord plus the rig cord that I use. Sometimes extension cords are far cheaper than installing a closer plug and can be used in other locations.

RE: Best TV Satellite set-up?

OK, Standard Definition, High Definition, DirecTV, Single Wire Multiplex, Radio Frequency, Infra Red and for completeness Recreational Vehicle and United States :B

RE: Best TV Satellite set-up?

Domes are limited to SD and are great if that is what you want. I installed a RF Mogul dish for DTV with HD and SWM. Push a button to deploy and Wingard has a similar dish. I believe the Canadian service is Star and I don't know how far south you can get service if you plan on US travel. Perhaps that is a factor for you. I also upgraded DTV to the HR44 receiver which can record 5 shows. It also supports a mini Genie receiver for remote TVs. I use the same receiver at home. A lot of this is US based and you'll want Canadian based information as well. My prior HR24 receiver has a RF remote option. The HR44 is RF only. This means that the receiver can be anywhere vs a IR remote. RVs often don't have deep cabinets that are reasonably located for the receiver. Ours is mounted vertically in a closed cabinet which is fine with the RF remote.

RE: Pictures get rotated

Did you try what I posted at 8:35? You need to rotate and save the picture before uploading it for posting.

RE: tools

And, sometimes the most overlooked, but important items of all. #1 - DUCT TAPE & BAILING WIRE #2 - Murphy's Law: What ever you need, you won't have. #3 - Cell phone, reflective road side assistance placards & " What's in your wallet " ?Gorilla tape is a far superior product. Stronger, sticker and lasts very well in the sun. And a small bottle of Gorilla Super Glue.

RE: Directv dvr

How about posting your model numbers, setup and more information of the issues?
