RE: INCREASING lpg capacity ?

Do a bottle tank exchange but first check that the tank has at least 6 more years. A 2016 tank would have 6 more years per my understanding that the certification is good for 12 years. Then fill where you get the best price.

RE: Satellite Dish question

Michelle, SD resolution can be converted and transmitted in the HD format eliminating the need for SD DTV transmission and SD receivers. But there may be other factors (marketing, equipment, etc) that related to DTV decisions.

RE: Satellite Dish question

Thanks, I should have stated it was ABC etc. There was a growing list of areas that were effected. In those areas SD only receivers don't get the local channels. The receivers have component/composite outputs for use with SD TVs. There has also been conflicting and lack of information on the future of SD from DTV (and hence other sources). This included past dates when SD would no longer be available.

RE: Water heater

BTW In Indiana I suspect that if you haven't winterized yet you'll be in some bad news in the spring.

RE: Water heater

AquaHot has a small water tank which depending upon the model can supply limited hot water on electric or forever hot water on diesel.

RE: Satellite Dish question

Good posts avove. There are areas where DTV does not trasmit SD and we found this out in 2014 in central Oregon so we upgraded to HD. We have a single receiver that we use at home and in the RV. Move the receiver, plug in 3 cables, turn it on, and in the RV push 2 buttons to raise the dish. It's a quick process and all prior recorded programs are available. And the receiver records multiple programs at the same time as needed.

RE: Water system going crazy help!!

we always have the plug on the city water intake. In the holding tank we have a screw typle cap with a small hole in the cap which use to have a rubber fitting to keep the cap. should I plug the hole in the holding tank cap.X2 Check valve. Mine was part of the water pump and now replaced. If the cap hole is to allow air in when using the pump then it can't be plugged. My tank has a vent hose in the top of the tank.

RE: ALASKA! Driving from California to Anchorage...

With good weather plan on 50MPH or less due to road conditions and no issues. 1. Met a couple with a bent 5er hitch and they were in day 19. 2. Another dropped a trailer axle. 3. Another was hung up in Fairbanks with issues. 4. And another had engine issues in Haines which was beyond local help. He decided to take the Ferry to Vancouver Island. Just the ones I knew about.

RE: ALASKA! Driving from California to Anchorage...

We wanted to do the entire Alaskan Highway so went up from Montana and back via BC. Anchorage? Not so interesting for us vs many other areas. Fuel stop distance was not a consideration for us, but be more conservative during the winter. Hours? No clue as the trip was 9,600 miles for 3 months.

RE: New RV USB plugs, what amperage are they?

OP Try this: If there was a USB standard for RVs it would already be obsolete and have to evolve. But a basic USB C port for charging would likely be desirable today. Even todays USB C connector will likely become obsolete in the future like other connectors.

RE: New RV USB plugs, what amperage are they?

The USB standard and implementation now support Power Density devices that support up to 5A and 48V (240W) for more power. Electronics on each end and a special USB-C cable. Somewhere I read that there is a Apple computer that uses the PD protocol. In addition data transfer is ramping up - USB4 is 40Gpbs or 4.8GB/s and it uses USB C. The OP is wanting a RV standard that doesn't exist any more than a home based standard. I agree with the prior post indicating installed RV ports are likely what's cheap or on hand.

RE: New RV USB plugs, what amperage are they?

Cigarette plug to USB C adapters are available. There are new standards evolving that a device could use. Right now there are USB C PD (Power Density) ones that use 20V or 48V for more power. You could also use a inverter for 120V AC and adapters that come with the devices.

RE: New RV USB plugs, what amperage are they?

Given the variety of USB standards it seems unlikely that there can be any RV standard. If for example you are asking about a USB-C 3.0A power source you could install the USB connectors needed for your devices powered from 12V DC or 120V AC adapters as desired.

RE: Surge Suppressor Buzzing

Happy, Yes surge ...somethng has morfed into something or another over the years and from my experience it started with the Surge Protector which was a EMS. It did seem like he was describing a EMS since a basic surge protection device wouldn't have a solenoid that buzzed. And PI does have a pure surge device, plus a few lights.
CA Traveler 01/08/22 10:46pm Tech Issues
RE: Surge Suppressor Buzzing

Search the archives and you might get a hit. AC ie 60 Hz can cause vibration and a buzzing sound. Make sure everything is tightned down and if it continues call PI.

RE: Cb anntennas

Don't know what you mean by "regular antenna" but if you're referring to an AM/FM antenna the answer is NO. It is not tuned correctly (can't be) and you will fry the finals in the CB that way.X2 There are CB antenna for grounded and not grounded (NGP) antennas depening upon vehicle construction. CB usage seems reather limited these days.

RE: Rice Ranch RV, Quartzsite

Did a drive through, it's close to the big tent. Otherwise about the norm. Staying there 1/25 with a club.

RE: Need help . No shore power

Are you sure you are plugging into 30 amp 120 volt and not a 240 volt receptacle? YIKES!
