RE: Bad converter?

My fridge stopped working on AC- I measured the input from the 12V supply coming from the converter and when I turned on more likes in the RV the voltage dropped to 8V- and the fridge shut off.

RE: Optima Deep Cycle

I'd skip optima batteries now, they are made by Johnson controls and aren't what they used to be in the past they had an 84 month warranty now it's only three years, in less than 5 years I had two go out in my jeep under normal use. The warranty replacement lasted less than my original, and I had to argue about the warranty and get documentary from the optima website for Costco to replace it

Look in you startup folder to see if it is trying to launch from there or play with msconfig.exe

RE: Is Lenovo drive interchangeable with Dell?

You should plug it in and try to boot it odds it will work depending on hardware generations it won't affect your data on there and should only a few screws. Windows activation may come up but it may work. This is from some one who spends lots of times on pc's

RE: Newbie Lurker - TC Arctic Fox for Year round Living

I know frank wouldn't be too offended by that- I've known him since he was still in his fifty's and had a little more hair. And yeah sooner or later my head will look like his.

RE: Must Motor home lights be on to tow a Jeep Cherokee?

If you are curious about jeep front end wobble search on "death wobble" having seeing it a couple of times over the years while driving a early 80's small Cherokee- I needed to clean my shorts- the results are usually worn bushings on the control arms or other things- the wranglers have been known to do it with bad steering geometry with lifts- surprised to hear the newer rigs are doing it.

RE: Newbie Lurker - TC Arctic Fox for Year round Living

Great another bald guy in a big truck- I've been one frank's buddy divers over the years and watching him go from a Tear Drop with all the amenities packed in his little truck to a fully contained camper is going to be interesting. I'm not sure he's going to know what to do with all the space now. Frank- have you looked at generators or anything for auxiliary power, we should catch up and compare notes one of these days. Travis

RE: How To Identify Computer Speed

from a command prompt run MSINFO32 and compare the outputs from the different machines Look at Process speed, Ram Size & Disk (type and capacity) SSD are faster than spinning disks

RE: Propane Issue?

Look in the owners manual to see how to adjust the airflow to the flame- usually a 1/4 nut and a sliding sleeve that needs to either be opened up or closed a little. just a guess.

RE: Toad Lights

I found that a mix of diodes and a trailer towing harness- yes a towing harness- I just cut the towing portion out and used it for the factory plugs and wired it to the diodes so if I have a problem- I just take the plugs out and my factory harness is still in place.

RE: Shooting straight from no experience to full-timing

Look at a lot of units and write down what you like and don't like- smaller units fit more places. Larger units with slides have more seals to worry about keep a slush fund to fix things. There is always something that will go wrong, heater, ac, fridge, battery tires the list goes on Good luck you will gets lots of feedback here

RE: DIY Fantastic Fan

I actually did something similar- I had a basic fantastic fan on the overhead bunk ( class c)and decided I wanted to upgrade it- so I bought the upgraded model to install and then put the "guts" of the basic one in the bathroom- its nice setting one to push and one to pull to move fresh air through the rig. And I don't have a loud fan in the bathroom

RE: Strange Part in a Strange Place

For what its worth your city water inlet also has one of these in it - Its a back flow preventer and both failed on my 2008 Winnebago- the hotwater one I replaced the city water I just reassembled. Found the one in your picture after my winterizing took 2 gallons of water and was bleeding out the drain valve of the hotwater tank

RE: RV Refrigerator repair in Sacramento California

Check to see if you actually have 12V coming to the control board- my converter when out and would only supply 8V when we had several lights on in the rv causing the voltage to drop
