RE: DRW vs SRW safety, tire blowout

We had been running around in our DRW with the camper unloaded. Loaded up the camper and my wife commented the the passenger side rear tires were really bulging. Checked and the inner tire was flat. Unload the camper and replaced the inner tire, which had a nail in it, with the spare. I have no idea when during the two weeks that the camper was off the tire went flat but, short of checking the tire pressure, I have no idea how you would know.

RE: Newbie Question on wi-fi

Meant to say tv reception is pretty good but not comparable to directional antennas. My understanding on antennas is the gateway has additional wifi antennas. Check here for the best info: Mobile internet reviews

RE: Slide out to non slide

I have an AF1150 with a full wall slide. Brother has an AF865 without a slide. I really like the 865 especially for a single person. However, for two people the slide makes a big difference as you can easily pass each other. In the 865 you are constantly getting in each other’s way. One other note about the 865. For cold weather camping there is no heat vent in the bed area and as a mid bath design the heat is slow to get to the bedroom because of the narrow passageway.

RE: Newbie Question on wi-fi

I am new to RVing and have a question on wi-fi. Our new TT came with a Winegard air 360+. My understanding is it is a HD TV antenna but also has wi-fi router capability. We would need to purchase an additional gaetway router that installs inside the RV for $300. My question is what does this do? The air360+ pulls a wifi signal from the campground (as an example - the campground would provide log in info?) and then the $300 router serves as a booster for the area around our individual TT? Can't you just use the campground wifi without a router? This is unrelated to any co-ax cable connectors on the outside of the TT, correct? The Winegard is not connected to any coax cable in the TT correct? I am a bit confused as to what we should buy or not. thanks. We have the Air360+ and the Gateway modem. The Gateway unit adds additional antennas for both wifi and cellular signals. Our experience is that: - TV reception is pretty good but do not expect it to compete with directional antennas. - WiFi is able to pull in signals our iPhones can not but most campground wifi isn’t very good. - We have been impressed with the ability to grab cell signals. As an example, we were at a harvest host farm who claimed they had not been able to get cell service but we were able to get AT&T. This has repeatedly been our experience. I attribute it to the multiple antennas and the rooftop location. Note that I believe the Gateway is only a cat4 modem so it is never supper fast. WiFi Ranger sells their Osprey unit to go with the Air360+ which can be obtained as cat6 or cat12 units so they may be much faster though I don’t know if the Osprey adds antennas like the Gateway does. Overall we have been pleased with the unit and it has given us data in a wide variety of place our phones have not been able to.

RE: New polar cub Mach 8 AC and the Honda eu2000i question

Does that Coleman Mach 8 cool your Bigfoot pretty good? I've got the Dometic 11,000 that was OEM. It's way too much AC for my 2008 Bigfoot 25C9.4. I always thought I would replace it with a Mach 8. We had a polar cub on our older AF1150 and now have the 9k low profile unit on our AF1150. It has always kept the camper cool in 100 degree plus temperatures.

RE: Update: Norcold code “Flame detected where not expected”

Well, Truck Campers are not in my line of sight. Very few of those in Texas. BUT, Your type problem is reported over the years on Truck Camper Refers. For some reason, the way Truck campers are installed in trucks causes a flame problem on various models of refers. They used to make kits(Norcold and Dometic) to stop flame out in transit in truck campers. This would have to be addressed by both Norcold and Northwood. Remember, the FL just means NO FLAME. It failed to either LIGHT or RELIGHT and the ignition process timed out after 3 tries. The other factor is, you have the refer in a slide out and you have the 2 upper and lower access doors and a normal install with no slide room, would have a roof vent. THAT may contribute to the air flow causing a flame out. Doug Doug, This seems to be a different problem in that the refrigerator is reporting a flame where there isn’t supposed to be one. This is not a “no flame” error

RE: Update: Norcold code “Flame detected where not expected”

1. Do you run the refer on AUTO? If so, then if you are connected to CG shore Power, the Refer will NEVER go to LP and have a chance to fault out. You need to select LP while camping and see if the refer stays ON. 2. In Transit would normally point to a wind blow out, but the Norcold has a 3 try relight. So, if the flame blows OUT it should relight. Unless there is enough outside air to keep from relighting in Transit. 3. The main thing is, you need to test on LP while stationary for a few days and see if it errors out. Doug PS Refer Gas valves don't "stick" and then "unstick". Thanks for the reply. 1. Yes, in the campground I have turned off auto and run it on gas only to check to see if I would have any problem. It has run without incident for several days. Trying it again at this campsite but so far so good. 2. Yesterday we traveled for 7 hours and I stopped several times to check it. In the first hour it “kicked out” with error code “5”. Reset it and it ran for the rest of the trip. I get the possibilities of it blowing out but I don’t understand how that would create the error code I am getting. Any other ideas?

Update: Norcold code “Flame detected where not expected”

We have a Norcold N7XC two way refrigerator. Error code “5” ( 5 light blinks) is said to be “flame detected where none is expected.” We are seeing the fridge occasionally trip off while driving with this error code. We push the power button twice and it starts right back up. This does not seem happen when stationary and only some times when driving. We are talking to an authorized Norcold repair place and they are a bit baffled by the behavior. They expected it to trip off and stay off as they thought it indicated that the propane valve was sticking. Dos anyone have any thoughts or ideas? Followup: Found a certified Norcold repair place. They talked to Norcold and replaced the burner assembly under warranty. So far so good .

RE: solar question

I’ll throw in my two cents. When we camped in the wet side of the Pacific Northwest in Winter in the forest in the rain our solar did nothing. However, just about everywhere else it has allowed us to not use our generator except for ac when boondockking. We have 385 watts on the roof and I’m glad we do.
