RE: Continued AC Saga

Double and triple check the freeze sensor and room sensor to make sure they are plugged in to the correct plugs on the board.

RE: 4 Gauge eBay Cable vs 4AWG Cable Images

FWIW, I copied the "direct" link given and used that- the preformatted links are more of a pain to work with, specially on thif forum I did then see the pics were way big, so I downloaded one, did a resize in my graphics program, saw what the size was, then used that size to resize them to keep aspect (clear as mud, I know).

RE: WD shanks

To a lot of people higher price automatically equates to better quality. If the manufacturer says the part will do the job you can be assured that it will do the job. If it did not they would be out of business because they would not be able to afford to pay their liability insurance premiums.. Randy Better materials and design also play a part. You cannot simply shop on price. I also don't mind paying a bit more for US made products.

RE: WD shanks

I actually own an EQUALIZER shank. That is how I know that not all manufacturers use the same steel. I didn't mention my shank in my previous response as I had no idea if it was one you were looking at.... I guess that made that response unintelligent in your eyes.... But now that you have an "intelligent" response, do you still believe the type of steel is of "no consequence"? I personally like that part to be as good as it can be... It is a pretty important part of the system. As I stated in a previous post, common mild steel has a yield strength of at least 25,000 psi. A 2x2 solid shank is 4 square inches which computes to 100,000 lbs. YES the steel is of NO CONSEQUENCE when it has a safety factor of 10 or more. I disagree- you are talking static load, and a hitch shank is very much subject to dynamic loads. To me, better steel is a no brainer.

RE: "Oh Show Me The Way"

Funny part is people say they are measuring DC current in the reviews- makes you wonder how valid the reviews are. My main meter (Fluke 116) doesn't do hi current DC (it does do microamps), so I bought this Tenma to go with it.

RE: Another new OTA antenna

I'm thinking they came out with it simply because people wanted the no-crank option that the full Jack gives- and are willing to sacrifice performance for convenience. I emailed about the price and they changed the web page to show no price, but msrp will be $109.99 for the full setup, $49.99 for replacement head to go on the Sensar mount.

RE: WD shanks

The Equalizer is 7 pounds heavier and made from better steel (says chrome-moly) in the USA, the Eaz-lift is mild steel, made in China.

RE: Another new OTA antenna

400 bucks for a small piece of plastic with other small parts. WOW! WOW That is an error- the full version is msrp of $109, the replacement head is msrp of $49. The $400 is for the Razar Automatic "dome".

Another new OTA antenna

Winegard has announced another Razar antenna- pretty much a Winegard clone of the Jack- replacement head or complete non crank up. The Razar z1: http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/razar_z.jpg

RE: Zero G hose for drinking water?

I've never had one of those last more than 6 months before turning in to a soaker hose. They are handy and compact, but if you step on one on gravel, it will leak. They are not repairable, either.

RE: Atwood Water Heater won't stay lit.

The electrodes need to be in the flame- temperature does not matter, being in the flame matters, as the board passes a very small electrical current through the flame. It is possible that the board is actually bad- I have had some test good, but fail in use.

RE: I drove off with the antenna up...

I don't know of anyone who has one, but the Razar Automatic is a somewhat pricey no-crank option which should be far better than an omni directional.

RE: I drove off with the antenna up...

I would replace it with the Razar Air-- reports are that it works quite well flat on the roof- has an omni-directional pattern- but you can still raise and turn it if extra sensitivity is needed.

RE: fridge question

Yes, the flame will cycle on and off. As long as the check light is not on, all is well.

RE: New Browser

Does it have a working man's calendar..... Spellcheck... Jump to internet to search words or links... Seems to- I am just trying it a bit. Looks like every Chrome extension will work, as it is built on the Chrome engine What is this OPERA thing you are talking about... Roy Ken Opera was the 3rd big browser back in the day- there was Netscape, Internet Explorer and Opera. It always did things a bit different- gesture based navigation, tiled start screen (this was back in the Win98 and XP days). Opera is still around, but this is a fork by some of the original folks.

New Browser

I just tried the new browser from the creator of Opera, but built on the open source chromium engine, which power Chrome. https://vivaldi.com- available for Windows 7 +, Mac OS and Linux. First impression- great for Opera fans, and a good alternative for anyone. Very customizable, very different from the Firefox/Chrome/IE paradigm (like Opera has always been).

RE: A/C Problems

If they got the right one, it will, and they should have it right. On those units the electronics are in the upper unit.

RE: LP gas Diagram, help needed.

You might look at the little Propex heaters- perfect for your application- Propex Heaters at Westy Ventures

RE: Dometic Refrigerator

Not really without a meter, though if the light doesn't work it is a pretty good indicator, but I guarantee it worked- the only current draw will be the electronics and gas valve.
