RE: Thoughts on LED lights

Reddog1 I think you may have just answered a question I had when I was considering buying a light replacement from Amazon. It said it was 12v-24 volt, but then when you scrolled down further, it said 30 volt. I took that as a bad thing, but perhaps that's what we need after all. If you wouldn't mind checking out this link and offering your opinion, I would surely appreciate it. Amazon 12v light fixture

RE: Eternabond tape on roof laps over sealant

We have used Eternabond on three rv's. Hubby just cleans it good, then puts the Eternabond right over old caulk. Last year, he did our Fifth Wheel we had bought for a permanent lot. About as soon as he did the skylight in the shower, we got a crack in it. DARN... He had to remove the Eternabond in order to replace the skylight. It was not fun, but not impossible. Moral of the story...check skylights real well.

RE: Temperature Alert for Pets using Text

I am currently working on software for a device that connects similarly that you are wanting. But, I think there is some terminology that might be hindering your search. Any current device would be at least 3G for cell communications and can send SMS text messages or connect to the internet and either way the data goes to the same place. In our case we connect to the internet using a secure connection and from there, SMS text messages are sent to a phone. SMS text messages can also be sent to the device. And we also have an app that can display other data. Anyhow, I think maybe you are searching for a device that uses 3G instead on WiFi for it's connection as opposed to searching for something that does not connect to the internet. And then the question is whether you specifically need SMS text messages or can use an app on a phone. David David..... You are going way over my head... LOL. I am searching for something exactly like what I have now. I am a little aggravated that the device lasted less than a year with no warranty, and that the new one is twice the price I paid. I don't know exactly how it works, only that I don't need Wifi and I get text alerts and I can also send texts to confirm temperature inside the RV. Is there any other better terminology I should use when searching? Do you have anything ready for sale yet?

Temperature Alert for Pets using Text

I need a device that plugs into an outlet on our RV that will text me an alert if the temperature gets too high (or low). It needs to work without internet. I know the technology exists because I have it currently. It not only sends me a text if the temperature gets too high, or there is a power failure, but I can send it a text to double check the temperature and make sure it's working well. The device I have is from Cell Sign Technology. I paid about $130 ten months ago. It worked fine until about a month ago. I also pay a $12 monthly subscription. The guy I bought it from thinks a power surge fried it. I don't know how that could happen since we have a high end Progressive Industries Surge protector. Bottom line is, it no longer works and now I need a new one because it's getting very hot where we are located and we don't want to leave our pets unprotected. The same one I paid $130 ten months ago has gone up to $240. My question is: Can anyone point me in the direction of the same type of device. It needs to run on SMS text, NOT internet.

RE: Splendide Ventless W/D Comments

Thanks for this great info. We just bought the ventless for the same reason. It's brand new and won't tumble when drying. I got an error code that said to call tech support. Of course it's Friday. I'm hoping it will be an easy fix and they will pay for service here in the Keys.....

Questions on Galley Gray water tank

We just bought a 2005 Pilgrim Open Road fifth wheel. There were no manuals with it. We have always had a motorhome with a gray and a black tank. We kept the black tank closed and the gray open. In this new to us fifth wheel. There are three dump valves, two of which are gray. We had both gray valves open and were surprised when the kitchen sink started filling up with water as I was doing dishes. AGAIN....Both gray valves were open. The gray tank only drained when he opened the black tank valve. The toilet wasn't over filling or over flowing, but the kitchen sink was filling up. Are these two connected? We've never had such a thing.

RE: Installation of Splendide washer/dryer combo

I think if you put the try on top of the carpet, you may find the feet are soon breaking trough the tray do to movement and weight. I would either remove the carpet or if concerned about resale, put a piece of plywood on top of the carpet and the tray on top of that(since you all ready have the tray. What location would prevent you from using a vented model? I think you're right about putting the try on top of the carpet. We will either remove the carpet or put plywood on top. The reason we went with the ventless is because the plumbing is not by an outside wall and from what we had read, that might be an issue to run the dryer vent an extra two feet. We have a vented one in our current motorhome and it works fine. We decided we could make it work with the ventless....although it was NOT our first choice. Thanks

Installation of Splendide washer/dryer combo

We bought a Splendide 7100 ventless washer dryer because of where it has to be located. We would have preferred the vented. Can anyone point me to a You Tube Video on how to install? I found some really BAD ones that were no help. Our plumbing hookups will be on the side of the unit and I'm concerned the drain hose will not reach around from the back to the side of the unit for proper draining. Anyone have any experience with that? I read where you should not put it directly on carpet. We bought a tray for underneath. Should we screw down a piece of plywood and then put the tray on top, cut out the carpet, or just lay the tray on top of the carpet and be done with it? We bought the brackets to screw it down. We want to know what we are doing before we start the install. Thanks for any guidance.

RE: Can 2nd AC unit be added to bedroom?

Contact Highland Ridge with the vin# It's an Open Road by Pilgrim. They are no longer in business. It's not the Highland Ridge Open Range.

Can 2nd AC unit be added to bedroom?

We are looking to purchase a used Fifth Wheel. Its a 2005 Open Road. We need an AC installed in the bedroom. There is a 14 inch opening with a Fantastic fan already there. There is no placard that states it's wired for an AC unit. We pulled the fan down and only saw wiring for the fan..nothing heavy duty like you would think it would be for AC. The price is good, so we don't mind spending the money if the second ac is possible. It is a 50 amp coach. There is no separate breaker for a 2nd AC, but there is a spot to add a breaker. My question, is Do you think it's possible. Someone told the owner if it had a 14 inch opening, then it would be strong enough to add a second air and it would be possible.

RE: Oil change at Lazy Days, Tampa and was overfilled

In mid January, we took our 2003 Monaco Diesel pusher to Lazy Days Rv, for new tires and an oil change. It has a Cummins 370 Isl engine. We have had great service from them in the past and neglected to double check the dipstick before we left. We drove back 30 miles to our rv park and parked the coach for a few weeks. Prior to a trip hubby decided to check the oil and found the oil reading about 3-4 inches up from the full mark. (too much oil) We called Lazy Days and were told it was ok to drive back and they would check it. They let it sit for over an hour, checked the oil and said the excess oil showing above the full mark was just where it ran from pulling the dipstick out. We argued but the service manager assured us it was normal. Hubby checks the oild regularly and has never seen it do that before. We made a 200 mile round trip and everything was fine. Yesterday, in preparation for another trip, hubby checked the oil after it sitting for weeks and the oil reading was still too high. This time a warning light came one. It just said warning...nothing else. I checked my engine fault code and i showed: ENG PID 100 4 Engine Oil Pressure Low Voltage We talked to Cummins and he felt sure it was due to the additional oil and that it probably just took a while for the excell oil to cause the problem. Hubby was able to drain some oil but we don't know if that will correct the problem. We're not sure what to do. Will the engine fault code clear if that was the problem, or does it have to be reset? Do we take it to Lazy Days, or to Cummins? Any advice? We didn't start the engine last night after we drained some oil so we don't know if the warning light is gone or not. We wanted to give it some time to drain. UPDATE ON ORIGINAL POST**************************** We started the engine this morning after draining some oil. The warning light AND the engine code were both gone. Cummins has no availability for two weeks. The coach is running fine at idle. We are thinking we are ok. Any thoughts?

RE: What exactly does "Second AC Prep" mean

Until an owner or tech who's installed the second A/C on pretty much the same model and year of Ever-Lite comes along and tells us, My Answer: Whatever the Builder and Vendor want it to mean... Ideally, there'll be Dedicated Circuit Breaker Wiring for Power and Thermostat already installed Some information on how to do the addition, like where to find that wiring We bought an old Class C with "generator prep" and it had An empty compartment that fit a generator Wiring from that compartment back to the shore tie box (with BARE wires) Control wiring we never would have found without an electrician's "fox and hound" wire detection gadget And... NO fuel line! Called Factory, they said "we did't provide fuel lines in prep" The original owners we bought our present Class C from, wanted a second Fantastic Fan. In that case, the 12VDC wiring to power one was already there. But no wiring for another wall mounted control, like the OEM one has. Proceed with caution! Looking at your travel map, if you have a trailer that's big enough to be 50 Amp, you won't just Want a second A/C - You'll NEED it. I found This Page and see only Pre-Wire = Yes. This for 294RKS Travel Trailer. It seemed there's a 50 Amp option that ups the standard A/C from 13500 (that will NEVER cool a 30-something coach in Texas) to 15000 and also adds the pre-wire. Does not say what the pre-wire feature involves. Thanks J-D. We are currently trying to buy a preowned fifth wheel to put on our lot in the Keys. We NEED a good 2nd air and many do not have them. Good post.

RE: Cooler in Arizona this year?

Consider getting a good weather app. We use Weatherbug. I put in different cities where I'm interested in their weather. It shows it all and you can decide for yourself.

RE: any spots left?

I have lived and rv'd in Fl for many years. It seems to have filled up much quicker than usual this year. I would definitely call and make reservations first.

RE: Key West info request

I know you found a site, but for future reference there is another place on Cudjoe Key at Milemarker 23. It's called Venture Out Resort. They are all privately owned lots and in a mixed used community but it's a nice resort with all the amenities. Some sites are waterfront, some canals and some dry lots. It's a gated community and since privately owned you have to go thru a Realtor or the owner directly. We own a site there and have it thru Dolberry Realty.
