RE: Operating on a 20amp circuit

If I couldn't live on 15 amps I'd quit.

RE: TV Antenna Question-Update

Good luck w/ any part of that antenna. They are very fragile very cheaply made, mine won't even rotate when any wind is blowing. And in most cases, a batwing will out perform it.

RE: extension cord length

I always listen to the A/C,....if it has a good normal startup, it will be fine. If it struggles to get going, get larger wire. We lived in our MH for 5 months on a 100 ft 12ga cord. We could use the AC or the microwave but not both at the same time

RE: Lost all locals on my SD DTV yesterday.

Where'd you go? Where who went ?

RE: Lost all locals on my SD DTV yesterday.

As long as they take it off my bill fine. I watched all locals on OTA HD anyway. They will not be taking anything off your bill. What service and equipment are you using? I just check my DTV and all SD channels are still available. If you are talking about local Network channels only, that's certainly a possibility. As I said I lost my local channels only. I have the same receiver for 20 yrs. It work in the rv so I'll keep it. And they will take the locals off my bill, trust me !

RE: Slow/ No Cranking

Quote and 12.6 volts static is an almost dead battery. What a stupid statement ! It is actually nearly full charge

RE: My 1994 rexall aerobus

yes mainly because even the best magnetek put out a maximum 12amps to the battery, and most models only do 3 amps some do 5amps.

RE: newbie question about winterizing water lines and pump

Antifreeze probably ok for the winter. As far as I know there is always a pump switch on the monitor panel. The other switch you describe sounds more like a circuit breaker, If it doesn't stay in the reset position, there may be a short in the water pump circuit somewhere. The pump runs on 12v only either from the battery or the 12v converter when plugged in to shore power. All the 12v stuff runs on battery all the time, the converter charges the battery when plugged in.

RE: Electrical Question

All I know is that most all alarms will sound if low voltage is detected

RE: Blow-by Yamaha ef3000ise

Above is a perfect candidate for blowing oil all over the place !! Some engines will tolerate it, some won't......trust me ! What the hell is the dipstick for.

RE: Laptop battery difference Metal hydride vs Lith ion

Ok I contacted the seller about returning it, and he said the new battery actually is a lion battery and it is perfectly safe, He said if it fails to operate correctly he will replace it w/ the same. And it is operating to full satisfaction, including capacity performance. How can I complain......a $11.95 battery that seems to be operating to full performance. So I give it up. Thanks for all the replies.

RE: Blow-by Yamaha ef3000ise

Confusing statement about the oil level. Are you filling it by capacity or dipstick mark ? No matter what the place where you got it says, NEVER fill above dipstick level or you could get the problem you have

RE: How many volts....

Depending on the soc of the batteries, anything from 12.7 to 14.1 Where did this come from ? When you obviously don't know the answer, don't answer ! Most anyone knows that 12.7 is not a charging voltage. Charging voltage would be between 13.2 and 14.6. Any charger that shows a 12.7 output is junk. BTW, wasn't that the question ?

RE: Laptop battery difference Metal hydride vs Lith ion

i would return it, not going to be even close to the performance. Humm, I thought 5200 ma would outperform 4600 ma.

RE: Laptop battery difference Metal hydride vs Lith ion

Assume you received a Nickel Metal .hydride ( NiMh ) battery.....older technology.....reliable but less capacity than a LiOn battery and perhaps a different charging profile. Personally I'd be a bit perturbed to receive them in place of the OEM Lithium-ion battery. Strange thing is, the new MHD battery is 5200 MA, 800 more than the old Li ion at 4400 ma. So, while all seems to be operating well, my guestion is still about the safety of it all. I am glad that its not the other way around, because those li ion batteries can be very scary if all is not correct. The other thing I am thinking, why do the 2 completely different chemistry batteries fit ?????? Very strange situation, at best ! But I'll hope for the best.

RE: AM/FM antenna wiring

I am in the process of replacing my TV AM/FM antenna and want to use a Winegard Air 360.  One problem is that Winegard recommends using coaxial cable to run from the antenna to the radio.  The existing wire is just that, wire with audio plugs. Will plain wire be an adequate substitute for coaxial cable for this purpose? coax cable is used where there mite be a problem w/ noise or interference. So if it works w/o it you don't need it. But if its not difficult I'd pull new coax rather than wish I had. Are you sure its not coax, because most audio cables are using coax for the same reason

Laptop battery difference Metal hydride vs Lith ion

I received a new battery for my Dell, It fit fine, charged up fine, both 11.1 volts pc runs fine. But after installing I noticed the new one is an MHD, and the one I took out was a Li ion. Does anyone know if this is safe or could cause any damage ?
