RE: Nothing beats Urban Camping

Maybe in the general vicinity of trump tower. More like right across the street- Columbus Circle. They really don't have models that are being paid mega bucks walk a couple of blocks to a shoot- they tend to put the rigs right there. #2 61st Street was the address on the permit.

RE: Is it okay to equalize maintainence free batteries?

Yep- http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTIwMFgxNjAw/z/rWEAAOSwrx5UU8Ja/$_3.JPG width=600 While I can see where the caps are, it would not be trivial to remove them. If you cannot add water, I would not equalize.

RE: This may be the end of buying a new Windows 7 PC.

I have managed to buy 2 off the shelf, name brand computers without Windows of any kind- a Dell laptop with Ubuntu preinstalled, and later a Lenovo Server- quad core, 16gb memory, no hard drive, no OS box for just over $330. I have win7 on a virtual machine should I ever need it- the only thing I use it for now is Turbo Tax, and I could get away from that reasonably easily.

RE: Nothing beats Urban Camping

That's not Trump Tower behind it, but that's where it is- this was Christy Turlington for Maybelline- the shoot where she lost control of her dogs. You cannot see the motorhome in any of those shots, but there is a good one of my friends EU2000i. Those motorhomes for New York have their LP systems removed so they can go through tunnels and all bridge levels. Considerable time is spent at the end of the New York season removing taxi cab yellow paint from the bumpers. I'm pretty happy that Maybelline likes that truck for makeup- we put "binned" led strips @ 5500k color temp- 160 feet of them. The back of the truck- can be used as either makeup or wardrobe, by folding tables down. http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/makeup1.jpg

RE: Nothing beats Urban Camping

A friend of mine does that- the one he has now has the 800 watts of solar, 9 battery agm (1100 amp hours) with Xantrex 3KW PSW and all LED makeup lighting. Here he is in front of Trump Towers earlir this year- note new Atwood 15k heat pumps. http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/rayspro.jpg width=600

RE: Questions about 5th wheel on Lowered Truck

I'm looking to buy a lowered 98 chevy dually. However, I'm wondering about the 5th wheel hitch. The truck is very low and has helper bags. (the ride does not return to normal height.) The question is do I raise the tongue to match the trailer or can I lower the trailers receiver? (I am new the adjusting of these parts all I ever do is drive never had to hook or disconnect anything somehow). Ignoring any weight carrying issues with the truck, I would raise the hitch first to its tallest height, then lower the pinbox to make it level- my reason being the hitch/truck frame combo is stronger usually than the pinbox/trailer frame, and extending the pinbox puts more stress on it. If the trailer is raised at all, I would lower it as well.

RE: No brake lights! Very frustrating.

IIRC, it goes through the turn signal switch.

RE: Getting generator to idle high for small appliances.

I don't know of any 4500 watt RV genset which is variable speed- the only small spark ignition unit I can think of is the Generac Impact 36- all of the others are strictly constant speed, typically 1800-3600 rpm.

RE: unlimited streaming......

There is always Calyx- For legal reasons, we can't call it unlimited data service, but..... We are supposed to refer to it as 30 GB+.. however when you pass the 30GB mark during the month, the Internet service does not slow down (throttle), or cut you off, and there are NO overage charges. The plan only works in the USA in Sprint's 4G/LTE service area (see instructions to check the map below). It does not include off-network roaming, and it is subject to any standard network management that Sprint may apply to commercial broadband data-only account users.

RE: AMP Draw Issues

After being plugged in all night the battery is at 13 volts right now Back to this- that is WAY too low, it should be above 13.8 volts. Your battery is not being fully charged. Chris: You not awake yet this morning ?? 13.0 is perfectly normal IF he really is reading only the battery after the charger has been unplugged or turned off recently. And 13.6 is a very common "float" voltage IF the battery is fully charged. Nah- I was ASSuming :) that the OP meant the battery read that while on shore power- "plugged in all night ... at 13 volts now"- 13 is actually high for a battery at rest- all surface charge.

RE: Light bulb ohms. What the heck is going on here?

What they said- a bulb is the ultimate Positive Temperature Coeffecient Resistor- very low resistance while cold, resistance rises fast as it heats. Back in the 70's and 80's speaker manufacturers used 1141 bulbs in line with tweeters to limit current :)

RE: trouble lining up your hitch?

I don't think much of that hitch (clever, though), but that's an interesting website- with things like this http://static.dudeiwantthat.com//img/autos/exotic/kiravan-terrestrial-spaceship-13746.jpg width=640

RE: Coleman A/C blower stuck.

Carefully spin it and turn the power on- if it's the capacitor, it will continue to run.

RE: WiFi network

No offence, but that printer got horrible reviews. According to amazon, it is wifi direct capable- I looked at their awful website, but could not find a manual to read. According to most reviews, the wifi doesn't work reliably, it needs a wired usb connection. They also said the toner costs more than the printer.

RE: Just Suppose

I believe it has been stated already, but my big beef is in design- these are still being built one off, by and large, like houses. I would design them so every piece was fabricated before assembly- no more holes punched with a hammer to snake wires- the walls would be computer routed, all wiring via harness, all wires labeled. Home run plumbing and LP lines. Chases for utilities. Basically, designed for assembly line construction.
