RE: Hooking grill to onboard propane

You need to tell us if the regulator is at the tank end of the hose or if it is part of the grill. If it is at the tank end of the hose it is easy to convert to a quick connect and run off the MH. If the regulator is part of the grill it gets complicated. The regulator is at the tank end of the hose. Does the regulator have a large ACME screw on tank connection or does it connect to the small throwaway cylinders. If it connects to the throwaways, an Extend-A-Stay type adapter with the correct hose will work fine since it connects before the RV regulator.

RE: Shark bites for plumbing

Two keys to success I've found over the years with any of the push-on fittings are to make sure the end of the tubing is cut square and especially with copper tubing, that the cut is fully deburred so the O-rings aren't damaged on insertion.

RE: Rear View Camera vs Backup Camera

Like Tropical36, my rear camera monitor is wired to come on in reverse unless I turn it on manually where it stays on. Once I turn it on, it remembers that setting the next time I start the engine until I turn it off. I installed two rear cameras that I can select at the monitor, one aimed low that lets me see from the motorhome rear bumper back about 20 feet, and the other aimed high enough to see back down the road. The low camera is handy for backing into tight sites as well as checking on my toad hookup while under way.

RE: Shark bites for plumbing

I use the similar Watts and Sea Tech push-on fittings and have never had a failure to date.

RE: V10 Eng, desperate in need of help

Check the motor mounts. A bad one may allow the motor to lay over too far on tight turns, either shorting some wiring or pinching a hose...

RE: Well, I have learned one thing during this pandemic...

I too have both eyeglasses and BTE hearing aids. My masking process is pretty simple. I put the mask in place and hook the elastic bands over my ears making sure they're on the outside of my hearing aids. Then I lift my glasses enough to let the formed top of the mask slip into place. Removing the mask, I simply slide the bands over my ears starting at the top just in front of my ears, and my hearing aids stay put while I slip the mask out from under my glasses.

RE: How to camp with electric only

We carry a 7 gallon potable water jug that we use to supplement our 65 gallon onboard tank as needed. When the jug is empty, we take it to the nearest community source and refill it. If we need more water in the onboard tank, we just use the winterization suction hose on our pump to refill the onboard tank from the portable jug. Could you explain this a bit. Do you just open both valves and it flows into, instead of out of, the tank? I have a suction hose installed with a 3-port valve on the suction side of the pump. The valve selects whether the hose or the storage tank is used as the water source by the pump. Another valve selects whether the output side of the pump and the city water port connect to the storage tank or the rest of the plumbing. With the suction valve set to the hose and the other valve in the tank fill position, the pump sucks the water from the portable jug and sends it to the storage tank. The fill valve is also used when city water is available to fill the tank. The suction hose/valve can also be used to install RV anti-freeze in the plumbing when winterizing, although I prefer blowing out the lines...

RE: PROPANE on the cheap

I paid $9.50 to fill an empty 30 lb cylinder last Sunday.

RE: our current FINANCIAL situation

I suspect a number of RV's are being bought as "isolation chambers" for folks trying to avoid potentially infecting family members if their jobs place them in potential CV-19 exposure situations. Others are likely being bought as replacements for vacations normally done by air or cruise travel. And of course some are just long planned purchases that happen to come together now. Certainly some of the sales are being financed, but I'd bet not all of them...

RE: Tow bar recommendations

I use a ReadyBrute Elite tow bar, that has an integrated mechanical auxiliary braking system, coupled to a Blue Ox base plate. It only takes a moment to pull on the captive pins and twist to remove the "horns" when I disconnect. I insert a pair of rubber plugs to keep out dirt and debris. Over the years I have worked with Roadmaster and Demco base plates and still find the Blue Ox "horns" the simplest to remove and replace.

RE: Level Mate Pro

Back in my TT days, I had a large level attached to the front of the trailer that I could easily see in the rear view mirror or window. I just pulled up on my block stack until it was level side to side, chocked the wheels, and leveled front to back with the tongue jack. The level linked below is similar to the one I used.

RE: Android question

The "All-In-One" app has a tool that will locate all the apps that can be moved to the SD card with just a couple of taps. It's also handy for cleaning the cache and has a number of other useful tools.

RE: Android vs Apple

It has one feature I think is very valuable for the older crowd that allows their children to keep track of them. That feature is find my phone. . a good reason to get android. bumpy A similar feature is readily available for Android as well. My wife and I can track each other as needed. It is user controllable though...

RE: Continuous generator usage. How long?

We can run our Onan onboard generator about 6 days (150 hours) between oil changes, but the longest continuous run we've done was about 4 days due to wind storm damage that took out the high voltage power lines on the road to our site.

RE: DISH TV - Locals

We use a manually aimed 3 satellite dish for our Dish Hopper w/Sling (Hopper 2) and it typically takes me less than 15 minutes to set up and dial it in using a signal meter. The same setup would work for a Hopper 3 if we decide to upgrade. We've been using this dish setup since 2008.
