RE: How come?

Daily vitamins, and Honey on you oatmeal. I keep a Flonase spray in the MH for allergies because the pollens are always different from where we were before. Agree with this with 2 changes. Add a Zinc supplement daily at least 1 week before travel and continue while traveling. Make sure the Honey is Raw honey. It has natural antibiotic properties. Greg

RE: I Hate the Heat

Door County WI. Stayed for a week in early July about 3 years or so back and it never got above 78. 50-55 in the mornings. Loads to see and do as well.

RE: cable splitter location

Could you explain where each of the four outlets are located? 1. Bedroom (direct from the Antenna power boost outlet) 2. Living room (main TV in street side wall) 3. Outside Kitchen (in ceiling) 4. ??????? (Outdoor sidewall to left of entry door) Since the Living room, Outdoor Kitchen and Outside sidewall all feed off of the connection at the power boost there must be a splitter. The Bedroom one has always had the best picture it has Never really been as clear as when hooked directly to the Park Cable connection. The others are worse. I have removed and tightened each of these. Ends feel and appear to be crimped well but I will replace if the splitter proves to be ok. Greg

RE: cable splitter location

Have you tried replacing the end of the coax connection? I was also having issues and the person at the factory that crimped the cable did not do a good job. When I replaced both ends behind the wall plate I got much better signal. Will try after I locate and replace splitter if that does not solve it. In our experience with cable splitters are usually the culprit. Thanks for the thought tho. Greg

RE: cable splitter location

We have a 2013 Forest River Wildcat Rear Living 5th wheel. Cable TV has never worked great but has been much worse the last 4-5 years, If I run Cable from Campground post direct through window to any TV reception is perfect. Through the main 5er cable input it is very snowy. I replaced the Antenna power boost outlet and removed all 4 of the Cable hookups and verified a tight connection. I also checked the main Cable input to verify tight. No change in snow. None of these have a splitter connected to the cable. I pulled all lines out as far as they had slack and no splitter. I then removed every access panel in the main trailer and basement to look for a main cable splitter. NO luck. There has to be one somewhere as this trailer has 1 cable inlet and 4 cable outlets. Does anyone have any idea where it could be? I will contact Forest River but my understanding from research is that RV's are wired based on the whim of the crew that given day. Thus I expect no real help there. We can use antenna reception but DW prefers the cable variety. Hoping to get help narrowing down the hunt. Greg I have to ask a basic question. You are turning off the OTA antenna booster when connected to park cable? (Yes) When you say 4 cable outlets, does that mean at four different locations in the trailer? Or two each at two locations? If two each at two locations, there is probably a SAT input somewhere that you are missing. (4 individual cable outlets none of which are loose or have any splitter connected when I pull out as much cable as the play allows. No outlets are marked SAT.) Might be time to buy a coax compression tool and some ends, and replace crimped ends with the newer compression ends. (Will do only after I locate and replace the splitter. Our experience with cable in multiple locations has been splitters are the culprit.) https://www.amazon.com/Crimper-Compression-Stripper-Gaobige-connectors/dp/B073TWL5G4/ref=asc_df_B073TWL5G4/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=309802506143&hvpos=1o1&hvnetw=g&hvrand=8440834710224871333&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=1027744&hvtargid=pla-593079867514&psc=1 The OTA antenna power supply/booster has a splitter built into it. So the three connections on the back are: (Already replaced with Identical unit the Winegard came with.) 1. OTA Antenna 2. Cable in 3. Output (Antenna or Cable, depending on switch on or off) Front connection also gets switched between OTA Antenna and cable via the power button. A good test would be to hook up to cable and install a cable from the front outlet to the main TV if the power/supply booster is in the bedroom. That would islolate the problem as before or after the power supply. https://i.imgur.com/py6wWtFl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/bH0tye5l.jpg In many cases, they put a splitter on the 2nd TV output and it is in the wall behind the power supply. You say you already looked there however. I would think that by 2013 just about all trailers had sat cables installed OEM. Thanks for the ideas. I am now certain it must be behind the Electric Fireplace and will check there next trip. Unit is in storage now. (Thanks for the ideas. I will remove Fireplace and check behind it. I suspect that is where I will find it.) Chris

RE: cable splitter location

Not the right year but here’s a List of some locations. Why not run the cable in thru the satellite connection? There are no Satellite connections. Just one Cable input located in the compartment with water/backflush inputs and holding tank levers.

RE: RV Parks in/near Ruidoso, NM

We stayed at Circle B 3 years ago and were happy. We had a site on the outer edge that was spacious and shaded. We'd stay there again. Greg

RE: How to remove/replace bolt

Self drilling screw Self Drillers need 2000-2500 RPM to properly drill, tap and seat. Also, you need to get the correct drill point for the thickness of steel you are penetrating. The wrong point will either fail or strip out. Drill a hole and through bolt with lock washer and nut is the better option. Greg

RE: Durango campground?

I went ahead and booked a riverfront site at the KOA. I'll contact them May 1 when they open for the season to confirm that we'll fit. According to the fly shop in Durango, the river north of town is all private so staying at a riverfront park will be nice. Busskipper, Priest Gulch looks really nice. Maybe next year. We stayed in site 14 or 15 bout 4-5 years back. 35' 5th wheel with F350 crew cab. Fit fine, little tight with truck but ok. Limbs on trees were close but no issue with them. Kept our back window curtain open for 5 days and nights. The sunrises were great. The moon shining on the river mesmerized. I don't fish but the river looked good for that purpose. You should enjoy it there. Greg Chef wannabe.

RE: Cammpground Rant

I think you may also be crossing over school vacations. I'm glad so many others live a clockwork life where they can plan things down to the day 6+ months ahead. Those of us who do plan ahead don't necessarily live a "clockwork" life. Many of us are locked into vacation time well in advance due to competition for time off at our jobs. Juggling back-up coverage, projects, etc., causes many of us to have to pick a week well in advance. Campgrounds are booked so there's no worry about finding a place. Not all of us have the luxury of "hey, let's just go!". Yep. Crowe stated our situation exactly. Greg

RE: Slides and Jacks function trips then resets

Had that problem on ours shortly after buying new. Did some digging and found a Lippert service bulletin that indicated starting amp surge was too great and to replace 40 amp auto breaker with 50 amp. Did and that solved the issue. Greg

RE: Corned beef brisket in slow cooker

I paid $3.48 a pound yesterday at Walmart in Amite, Louisiana. Didn't want to, but I'm hungry for it, so I bought a small one. DH likes it, but he can't have salt. He will eat a little bit of it, but the rest will be mine! All mine! Dale Glad you found one. $3.48 isn't bad for corned beef. Up here in the off season it runs $4.99 or more. As far as you getting it all, think of snoopy doing the happy dance.... LOL

RE: Corned beef brisket in slow cooker

Scottiemom if you have a warehouse membership you could try that. I have bought them at our local Sam's (Kansas City area) in the off season. Right now is the season (St Pats) and around here $1.99lb for Point and $2.99 flat at 2 different stores. But if I have the craving later in the year Sam's here has had them.

RE: Corned beef brisket in slow cooker

Yes I have a pressure cooker albeit a small one. I happen to believe some dishes taste better when slow cooked vs pressure. Just a difference in taste buds I suppose. I do like Cheesecake done in a pressure cooker. Made 2 for Thanksgiving last fall and those were a hit.

RE: Operating Hydraulic Slides in Cold Weather

Not silly questions at all. I have operated ours down to 30 with no noticeable difference. Once had to take them in at about 24 and they were very sluggish. If you slide them out it is best to go all the way to have a good seal. Greg

RE: Corned beef brisket in slow cooker

You forgot to add onions and carrots. . . . . :S I'm ok with the onions, should have thought of those. Not fond enough of carrots to add those myself. Celery might be a good add with the onion.

Corned beef brisket in slow cooker

That time of year. Local grocery stores all have corned beef on sale this week. Not a very healthy meal (high sodium) but with cabbage and potatoes it's yummy. I place a slow cooker liner in crock, rinse off brisket and place fat cap down inside and top with the spices from the packet. Pour in 1 cup/can chicken broth and 1 12 oz.can of beer (the cheap stuff is ok so you can save the good stuff to have with the meal). Cook on low for 8-9 hours. About an hour before it is done I remove about 11/2 cups of the liquid and place in stock pot. Add as much sliced cabbage and potatoes as you like, add water to cover, bring to a boil then reduce to simmer until the potatoes are done. Use small chucks of potato and they are tender about the time brisket is ready to remove and slice. Enjoy.

RE: tpms

We have used the Tire Minder system for 7 years. It has alerted us twice that required attention, Awesome. It was not fast enough to alert us on a tire tread separation blowout at 65 on the highway, Not so good. It has alerted me falsely twice, worth a manual check. It is just another tool in the box. I still check PSI before trips manually. I do check the tire status often while on the road and check temperatures as well as PSI. Only you can decide if the $ is worth it. I felt it was. Just do not count on it by itself. A high quality PSI gauge cannot be beat. Greg, camp chef.

RE: Why no soap?

theft mostly, cost is next, and those that just roll it all off and jam the toilets, or trash the restroom. Having Mom to clean it all up was a good idea, but what she really needed was a belt to beat some butts with. Its amazing how many modern people can use the Internet, but don't know how to flush a toilet. Just work as a camp host for a week, and you opinions will take a big change. Lots of men are really nasty, but my DW who cleans the ladies room, says that Women are the nastiest. I can't say, but I know about the men's. As a teenager I worked in a bowling alley. One of the duties included cleaning bathrooms, 2 Womens and 2 Mens. I did this part time (4-5 days) for a year. Your wife speaks the truth. The mens bathrooms were a challenge. The womens were a nightmare. My appetite has suddenly left me. Greg
