RE: Photo program for Windows 8

If you are planning to post photos on this forum you must have a hosting site that is available to anyone at any time. I use PhotoBucket. A good free program for viewing your own photos and doing some editing is Irfan View. Just Google it.

RE: Good Sam Membership problems...

I would send Marcus Lemonis an email at mlemonis@campingworld.com. In case you didn't know, Marcus is the CEO of Good Sam and Camping World. He wants people to contact him when they have problems. He is trying hard to fix the problems that CW has.

RE: Electrical Shock!!

Those aren't power lines, those are 'transmission' lines. They are supposed to ground them every 1/4 mile but trust me once they are up they do NOT because no one ever bothers to check to make sure they did.:( And that is called stray voltage the nature of the beast. Enough to kill a dog and enough to shock a full grown cow enough to prevent milking. If you live under these I suggest you learn more about them......I sold my life long dream home because they went up next to it.:W I heard a story, long ago, about someone who had a fence under a transmission line and he used the energy from the fence to light his house. The story was that the power company was trying to get him to pay for the power that he "stole" from them. No idea if it is true or not.:h

RE: Electrical Shock!!

You don't have to have a shorted wire to build up a charge on the camper. There can be enough capacitive coupling to build a considerable voltage on the camper. The current is very limited however so usually there is no harm done. However, there is always a chance that there is a shorted wire or some other problem creating the voltage on the camper, so you should always find the cause instead of just ignoring it.

RE: Electrical Shock!!

Its always the ground. Check the ground then when you finish checking the ground check the ground again..I disagree. Mine was not a bad ground. Long story.I have felt a slight shock from my MH several times at my storage yard. The MH is not plugged in at the time and happens regardless of the position of the battery disconnect switch. After researching this I found it's the over-head power lines, there are a lot of them and you can hear them buzzing. That's still a bad ground. :hI didn't comment on whether the ground was bad or not, only that the power source was a little unique. You're right. Sorry about that. (but still, no ground is a bad ground. :B )

RE: Electrical Shock!!

And some leakage to ground. This is why I recommend plugging into a GFI outlet to see if the leakage is over 5mA and needs further study to discover the cause. Good suggestion. I'll have to try this with mine even though I have never felt any shock.

RE: Good Sam Member Designation Under Forum Name?

Teamfour, I see you solved the problem. Congratulations! What exactly did you have to do? Not sure, the logo just showed up. I would guess Good Sam interceded and added your logo. I see IDman's logo is gone now.

Here is how I post pictures. Photobucket is a free photo hosting site. Clicky

RE: Flooding photos in Central Ontario Canada

Not for me, it asks for a loginI have a laptop and no Facebook account. I see a page of pictures and clicking on a picture gives me a larger picture. Doesn't ask for a login. Sad to see that flooding and those trailers sitting in the water. X2

RE: Electrical Shock!!

If you are using a 2 wire extension cord that will do it. Otherwise it is PROBABLY a bad ground connection in your power cord or in the circuit you are plugged into. It could also be something much more serious. Get a circuit tester, the kind you plug into a receptacle and it has 3 lights on it.

RE: Jensen TV's

No, you don't need a Jensen. Many LED TVs in the under 26" size come with an adapter (wall wart) to convert the 120vac to 12vdc or 14vdc that runs the TV. These can be run without the adapter directly from the 12vdc in the RV. Look at the adapter before you buy, it should be marked with the output voltage. Make sure it is 12vdc or 14vdc.

RE: Good Sam Member Designation Under Forum Name?

First, you have to be a Good Sam member. Then the internet account you use for the forum has to be the same as you have given to Good Sam. That should do it.

RE: Handicap Parking

My wife is one of these with invisible disabilities. She was a nurse and developed a latex allergy from using latex gloves all day. This was in the days before alternative gloves were available. As a result she has breathing difficulties and cannot walk long distances. You can't tell by watching her. Usually we can find suitable parking spaces close enough without using a handicapped space, but at some events, especially rallies, fairs and such, parking spaces are so far away she needs the handicapped space. We sometimes get funny looks but no one has questioned us. Another thought about my wife's problem. Many events have shuttle buses to move people from distant parking lots to the event. Unfortunately, due to her allergy, she often reacts to the rubber mats or whatever in the shuttle bus. Her allergy is so severe that she goes into anaphylaxis. She no longer rides shuttle buses.

RE: 07 4 winds Majestic 23b Converter upgrade PICS

I did my conversion as detailed in the link I posted. I have never heard the fan run and I am not aware of any overheating, but I must admit that I haven't specifically looked for overheating. The 9260 has been around for a long time and maybe that is part of the reason for the cost differential???

RE: 07 4 winds Majestic 23b Converter upgrade PICS

The 4655 sell on Amazon for $217, and the 9260 for $170. 55vs60 amp and of course one is a board upgrade vs stand alone. Why the difference in price, and why not upgrade the 7155 with the stand alone unit? Not taking anything away from this OP just asking a question, the OP upgrade looks good and was neatly done from the pix. I replaced my Magnetek with the PD9260. The 4655 is a plug and play replacement. The 9260 requires considerably more work. Here is a link to the replacement directions.
