RE: How does this work? TV antenna

It's missing a crank & dial, that cranks up the antenna and turns it, it's directional, if I'm remembering right.

RE: Solar power

I read once that Michigan rank 47th out of the 48 continental states of available sunshine. Which makes me wonder if Solar panels are worth using here in Michigan?

RE: Water heater temperature

It's been a long time, but I think I changed one once to a lower temperature setting. Removed and put in a different thermostat.

RE: Tornado flush added to black waste tank...

I unhooked the probs and installed electronic sensors, they give % instead of thirds, and are accurate.

RE: Leak near Valve/Tank Connection

Take a look at SeeLeval gauges for RV holding tanks. The read in much more accurate. If I remember right 10's of the tanks. Not very hard to install.

RE: Atwood water heater drain plug tightening

I don't remember make or type of water heater, but a I put a quarter turn valve on our mh water heater, then all I have to do is open the valve to drain it. Down side, can't close cover with drain open.

RE: 7 pin cable

I would use crimp butt splicers and Heat Shrink insulation tubbing. :R Rookie mistake. Crimps work best with proper quality crimping tool, very few people have the proper crimping tool and substitute pliers and crush the connection making a very poor and unreliable connection. Additionally, standard heatshrink tubing is not weather proof or water tight and moisture will destroy the connections hidden inside the tubing. Not to mention the average backyard electrician won't have a good heat gun and will use matches or a lighter to shrink the tubing making a mess of the job.. For heatshrink tubing to work in the outdoors you must get adheasive lined tubing, it has a heat activated glue that surrounds and seals around the wire insulation making a good water and weather tight seal.. But, a good electrician will try to avoid allowing connections to be exposed to weather which means taking the connections back to the original connection box which is protected from the weather. Inside that box, the connections are made with wire nuts, no need to reinvent the wheel. Just use the existing wire nuts inside that box and all will be fine. True, but I do have the proper tool. I'm a retired construction electrician. And if I remember right, a box is required when the voltage is above 35 volts. On a trailer a box collects road salt and rusts.

RE: Aqua Magic IV toilet part

A part on our RV toilet broke and we learned that parts were not available, so we ordered a new toilet, then ew found a new part. That was a few years ago, the new toilet is still in it's shipping box.

RE: Can Tow providers mount new tire to wheel ?

Or put a hitch on the front of mh and carry the spare there.

RE: 50A RV with 30A plug?

Google 50 amp RV cord. They are different than what you have. I would guess that some previous owner made some changes, perhaps from RV 30A to 50A.

RE: Mixed Solar upgrade

I read somewhere once that Michigan ranks 47th of the 48 continental states, in available sunshine. Anyone know if there's a chart somewhere that gives the amount of power that you could expect to be produced in your area ?
