RE: Help me splain to my granddaughter

And let's not forget "Shotgun houses", a narrow design with all the rooms and doors in a row popular among the poor in the south following the Civil War. It was claimed you could shoot a shotgun in the front door and out the back door without hitting anything inside.

RE: TST 507 parts are expensive.

ACE hardware ... a large variety of O Rings available in the isle with faucet cartridges. And they are CHEAP! exactly and no waiting. Yep, I've found compatible o-rings at ACE and True Value.

RE: Portable WI-FI hot spots

We have unlimited (no throttling) hotspot 4G data plans with AT&T and Verizon. The AT&T plan is the currently not offered $20/mo Mobley/Connected Car Plan with the SIM transplanted to a Netgear Unite Explore hotspot, and the Verizon plan is their just discontinued but grandfathered prepaid $65/mo (w/autopay) Jetpack plan. Since we stream a lot of TV programming, we often use 100-150 GB per month. We have not found anywhere yet where one or the other did not give us a good signal, and often both.

RE: Boarder crossing insanity - CBP gone crazy...

On one crossing into the US at Lewiston, NY after the usual "Do you have any tomatoes or nuclear weapons" questions, the officer looked sternly at our dog through the window and asked her if she had left anything behind in Canada. I told him all she left was a wet spot on the London, Ont Flying J grass when we stopped for lunch. He asked her if that was all, so I told him if she had left anything else, I would have bagged the evidence and brought it with us. Well, that broke him up, and he quickly waved us on... :)

RE: Water pump

There may have been some water left in the pump that froze and changed the pressure switch adjustment. Check your pump manual for the correct adjusting procedure.

RE: Best satellite option for full timing

DISH uses 2 sets of 3 satellites. One set located in the far East and one set in the far west. A dome will work with DISH and if you ensure you select the correct dome you can change some settings in the dome (ladder and roof work required) to change between the 2 sets. Bill, you haven't been keeping up I guess... The Winegard Pathway X2 does not require any changes at the dish to switch arcs, just a menu selection.

RE: Amp Adaptors

Here's the reservation system listing for the site we were on at Crooked River State Park near St Mary's, GA last month. The stanchion was a typical 20,30,50 amp park setup. https://i.imgur.com/Z0crYI2l.jpg

RE: Onan Emerald Plus 5000

If you have 50 amp service, the bottom breaker supplies one of the two hot legs with 120 VAC when on generator power. If you have 30 amp service with two rooftop A/C's, the bottom breaker supplies one of them so both A/C's can be operated at the same time on generator power. There's usually a selector switch that has to be in the correct position to enable both A/C use in that case.

RE: Florida fire

Took place on "Motorcoach Drive"... I'm glad to read everyone is okay. So... what is a "gated RV community"? Just an HOA that allows RVs, or something more? Mount Olive Shores North

RE: Help with TPMS Readouts

You should have shopped around a bit more. The last time I bought 1632 batteries for my TPMS they were $8 for 10 of them. You're right but after 2 hours of trying to find them, I wasn't going to spend any more time looking so went with the first Prime option I saw. They're Batteries! It shouldn't be that difficult. Save these links for the next time you need 1632 batteries: https://www.walmart.com/search/?cat_id=0&query=cr1632+batteries https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00E0PTRUK/

Since switching to the https://forums.motorhome.com portal several days ago, I have not seen the error.

RE: Help with TPMS Readouts

I change the batteries in our 10 TST sensors annually. At ~75-85 cents each it's cheap insurance.

RE: Recreation.Gov - National Park Campgrounds

We've changed sites on arrival, but we did have to pay the change fee.

RE: Habits are hard to break

As a fulltimer, I've caught myself doing that when visiting friends in their sticks & bricks. It's always good for a chuckle when it happens... ;)

RE: 30 amp to 15/20 amp adapters

What the OP is doing is no different than plugging a standard 100 watt lamp drawing ~1.2 amps and fed by ~18 ga lamp cord into a 15 or 20 amp rated outlet protected by a 15 or 20 amp breaker. Something we all do routinely...

RE: Better in Asheville NC, Wilsons or Bear Creek?

Our all-time favorite campground in the Asheville area is the Lake Powhatan Recreation Area in the Pisgah National Forest. It's only a few minutes away from most Asheville attractions, and the paved full hookup sites on the Lakeside Loop are among the most spacious sites we've found anywhere. And the park is very quiet! ;)

RE: On/Off switch on dash

Our 2001 Georgie Boy Landau has a switch on the right of the glove box that operates the right side overhead map light. The left side map light is operated by turning the dashboard light brightness control all the way up until it clicks. The lamps themselves may also have built-in switches, so make sure they're on as well.
