RE: First time shower use

Glad to hear the snake worked. Make sure the water is going into the tank and drains out the grey tank sewer connection. Run it into a bucket so you can see what caused the blockage.

RE: First time shower use

Can you get down under the TT and follow the shower drain to the tank? If so, can you see any reason that it would not drain into the grey tank?

RE: Electrical

When you trip the GFI do the outlets that are working continue to work? Could it be that the working outlets are not on the GFI and the GFI is bad?

RE: Electrical

Probably a hidden GFI. You may be able to make a pretty good guess where the problem might be by looking at where the non working outlets are located and see where the shortest path to the power panel is. The missing GFI or loose wire should be along this path.

RE: First time shower use

You may have to use a drain snake to clear the drain to the grey tank. As others have said, it may just be a full grey tank.

RE: Electrical Problem

Great idea Dr Quick. I'll try to remember that one.

RE: I believe in LED lights now

I replaced almost all of my incandescent lights with LEDs, saved lots of power. LEDs use about 15% of the power for the equivalent light. 15% of the power equals 15% of the heat.

RE: Chevy cut away chassis putting gas in

My 2005 Four Winds on a Chevy chassis has never given me a problem filling the gas tank. Must be something that is somehow out of place in yours.

RE: Propane Tank Holder - Almost a disaster

We have an 11# propane tank for our grill. Same height as a 20# tank but smaller diameter. It is kept in an exterior compartment in its own rack secured with a bungee cord. Big enough to last a season and small enough to store safely. http://i.imgur.com/GPURj45l.jpg

RE: Whirring noise from inverter

It sounds to me like the battery is bad and the converter fan was running because the converter was trying to supply power to the failing battery. However, with a 2014 RV, that seems like a very short battery life. Can you tell us what converter you have? Have you checked the water level in the battery?

RE: Whirring noise from inverter

Just so the OP can tell us if he means inverter or converter, an inverter takes 12 vdc input and gives out 120 vac. The converter takes 120 vac shore power and puts out 12+ vdc to charge the battery and power the 12v equipment in the RV.

RE: real world fuel mileage

I have averaged 9 mpg over the past few years towing my Subaru and running the genny occasionally. Chevy 6.0L, about 12000 lbs.

RE: change dinette to sofa

Here is a link to a dinette conversion that caught my attention. It may give you some ideas.

RE: change dinette to sofa

Ok. How about ideas for making dinette into a seating area? Leaving the bench seats in place and adding a seat between. Making it U shaped. Shouldn't be any problem doing that. Use the same construction technique as is used in the existing dinette seats. On second thought I guess it is possible that changing the seating arrangement could put more weight further out in the slide causing a problem. Probably less of a problem, if any, than replacing the dinette with a sofa.

RE: Win 8.1 Wake-up screen

This will affect all accounts on this PC. Must be administrator to do this. Bring up charms Select settings At bottom of screen select change pc settings On left select accounts On left select sign-in options Last item on right side "Password policy" click Change Should change to "password is not required when waking this pc from sleep" Exit screen - this should now wake up to the last screen that you used. All went well until I got to Password Policy. I have never used a password and it required me to log in with a password. If I do, does that mean I will have to log in with a password whenever I want to use the PC, or do other things with the PC?

RE: change dinette to sofa

One of my dinette seats has a lot of stuff under it, electrical, heater vents, etc. You should be able to fit these under the sofa but it could be a concern.

RE: opinion - costco gr 78 batts & parallax 7300 charge data

One of the reasons the battery voltage is high after charging and then drops is due to surface charge. The battery voltage you should be interested in is the voltage after the surface charge has leaked off. It could take hours to leak off when there is no load on the battery. A fully charged battery should be 12.6 to 12.7v after the surface charge has gone.
