RE: Battery Trojan vs. LIfeline

Full River says: If Fullriver batteries are properly charged they should never require an equalizing charge. If they were not properly charged and there is a decrease in capacity, recharge the batteries and make sure they complete the entire charge cycle. This from http://fullriverdcbattery.com/technical/charging/.

RE: anyone install Onan genset in front compartment?

I set it right on the floor- removing really won't be that big a deal. I ran 1 1/2" angle underneath the compartment- frame to frame, right at the mounting holes. Plywood as an outside lining for the sheet metal enclosure. The trailer I installed it in was "generator ready", but I didn't trust the sheet metal to hold it. The hardest part is locating the holes to cut in the floor.

RE: RV Proctologist... anybody use him?

We have a guy here in Florida who has a franchise for this outfit- http://www.allprowaterflow.com- they use a high pressure snake along with cameras to clean. Not cheap, but does an amazing job- everything literally looks like new when he's finished.

RE: Water Heater Wont Fire On Gas

OK, I haven't had time to check today, but I know I checked 1 an there was 12 volts, besides would the solenoid click open if there was no power there?? and the board is definitely good. That is a redundant valve- there are 2 solenoids. You can here one click, but the second can be defective, or sticking.

RE: In motion satelite question

All in motion systems make noise- they are always moving, unless you put it to sleep. The way the in motion component works is that the dish moves in small circles constantly. If the signal is stronger in one quadrant, the whole thing shifts that way- so both elevation and azimuth motors are in motion continuously.

RE: Water Heater Wont Fire On Gas

Either the valve is sticking, or one of the coils is bad on the valve. Check the continuity of both coils.

RE: How do I remove decal residue

3M general purpose adhesive remover, available at auto parts stores. But.... Often the gel oat has faded a bit, except under the decal.

RE: AM Signal Booster?

Try one of these Antenna Boosters from CCrane radio. I use mine all the time when out and about in the boondocks to pull in late night stations.not built for a mobile radio :( Huh? The antenna was designed to work with everything from portable radios to home stereos with wire antenna terminals. The Twin Coil's wireless ferrite stick works on radios that don't have antenna connectors. Just ran a test. The CCrane Antenna Booster does not work with the whip antenna sticking up out of the fender of a car. I tried high mid low mounting locations and it didn't matter at all. Obviously the C crane can only inductively tie into the ferrite antenna in a radio. I think we are speaking at odds here- I am under the impression that the CCrane booster replaces the whip- not boosts it. It really isn't a booster- it's a replacement antenna, and the tuner is meant to work with the antenna element. I don't know how you would even try to hook it up with a standard antenna, as the input is a non standard jack.As that, I don't see why it wouldn't work with any radio- it will work with either an AM antenna input or a built in antenna. Stick the antenna element to the roof with 3M UHB tape, get the needed adapter for antenna in, or use the ferrite sticks in proximity to a built in coil.

RE: Multiplex wiring

Not sales hype at all- it cuts down immensely on the amount of wiring needed. You have 5 light in the back, five switches up front *and* in the back. Wires needed between front and back for traditional wiring- ten (two per circuit for three way switch operation). Wires needed for multiplex- two. Want to add switched somewhere else? Multiplex, run two wires to them, paralleled with other switches. Want to add a third with conventional- good luck! In addition- the control wiring need not carry any significant current.

The Twin Coil's wireless ferrite stick works on radios that don't have antenna connectors.the OP is asking about a car radio. How are you going to mount a ferrite bar so it doesnt get blown off or stolen,? Understood, but it looked like the antenna element was designed for remote mounting, and thought it would not be hard to mount on an RV. Trust me- I'm only question you about this so I will understand :) I am amazed at the dearth of AM stuff from C.Crane- they used to have the Select-a-tenna, along with numerous AM antennas. Actually, I always like the early '70's Delco radios- in the '80's I would get them from junkyards to use- did a lot of late night driving, and they would pull in stations like magic :P

RE: Suggestion to rv manufacturers.......

At some point, the RV will *be* a hotspot. They are giving cars LTE connectivity now. However- when anyone says "why don't they", the answer is invariably money.

RE: REFRIGERATOR DRAINLINE

The idea is that water has surface tension, and a small amount will keep a small opening sealed to air. Norcold used to crimp the end of their tubing, most people would cut the crimp off, then wonder why performance suffered, and the fins frosted faster.

RE: Coach Lighting Short

Also keep in mind you could have an open ground to the fixtures.

RE: Coach Lighting Short

If you know which lights are on that circuit, try pulling the closest working fixture to see if there is a loose connection there.

RE: Microsoft to End Internet Explorer(IE)?

This is like when MS stopped calling Windows by version name then called it Windows 95. It's semantics. Just like skipping Windows 9 in favor of calling it 10. It's just another browser. Don't be too surprised when you use it and go into Help/About that it's version 12.x or 13.x. I was skeptical of this- I was under the impression that Spartan used a completely different rendering engine. Alas- it sounds like it will be just as you say http://www.neowin.net/news/whats-powering-spartan-internet-explorer-of-course.

Alternate LED fixtures

Thought this might give some ideas- we recently remodeled one of the solar/commercial motor homes I work on (major tear out and rebuild). Having bought miles of LED strips to find the right ones, we fabricated some fixtures out of aluminum channel- the type that is used for plywood edging. The light: http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/ledone.jpg The fixture on the wall was converted as well- lots of leftover small strips :) Closeup, unlighted and lighted: http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/ledtwo.jpghttp://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/ledthree.jpg The main makeup stations- these are 5050 strips, binned for precise color temp of 5500k, run in aluminum channel with diffuser plastic covers: http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/makeup1.jpg Some under counter colored led lighting- one of those $15 ebay deals. Note the NovaKool under counter reefer: http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/undercounter.jpg http://bryantrv.com/images/temp/rvnet/undercountertwo.jpg I know the style of these are not for everyone- being a commercial vehicle, it's a bit more industrial, but I though some might be interested in them.

RE: The Ultimate Waste Tank Disposal Post

Let's not forget the Thermasan :) Apparatus for and method of disposing of liquid and organic waste material through the exhaust system of an engine wherein the waste material is collected in a holding tank from which it is metered by a pump into the exhaust gases from the engine only under controlled conditions

Lippert makes the Waste Master setup- with the stunning tag line of "The First Big Movement in 50 Years". :)

RE: Recording cable TV programs

Current Tivo models record all cable channels in full 1080p HD resolution. I wish- it won't record my current cable signal- the majority of which is switched digital, and not clear QAM.
