RE: Distorted Audio o RCA TV

Thanks for the response and research. The RCA is the primary TV and receives HDMI from the satellite fed receiver. As you suggested, turning the TV off, then on resolves the problem. But it's annoying. The bedroom TV is fed via component connection and doesn't share the problem.

Distorted Audio o RCA TV

I have a Dish Satellite 211 Receiver working off of a Tailgater. I also have an external hard drive with recordings on it. When playing a recording, if I fast forward, occasionally audio on the television will become greatly distorted. If I turn the TV off and back on, it's just fine. Any idea of what is going on?

RE: need a decent mattress

It really all depends on your body weights as to what will work. I am a big guy and about 265 pounds and my wife average weight. I have spent years simply miserable, especially snow birding for months at a time during the winter. We tried many various expensive memory foams, gimmick support slats, etc. but with my weight I still woke up an achy mess in a big hole after a couple nights on them all. Unless your an average to lite person any density of memory foam mattress leaves you in a hole. Finally a couple years ago after spending lots of wasted money and time we bit the bullet and bought a dual chamber Comfort Air during a really great sale. It has worked perfectly for 2 years with my wife having her soft setting on her side and me with a firm setting on my side. I wish we had done this years ago before wasting enough money to have bought the Comfort Air to begin with.-----A while back, my great wife got up in the morning and brought me a cup of coffee while I was still in bed. I said thank you and said I'm so comfortable that I just feel like staying in bed for a while. She smiled and said then the bed was worth it. I've been suggesting air mattresses for years. It just makes sense. They cannot say if you put enough air in the bladder. We happen to buy comfortaire our cells, two of them, but I'm sure the Sleep Number Bed is just as good. This idea of putting foam over a sagging mattress just beats the Dickens out of my brains. A mattress is supposed to support you with springs or some kind of stiff foam or other material if it's anything short of three quarter inch plywood on top of this it is going to sag.

Enter "mattress" in the search box. There have been endless discussions on the subject. A mod will move your post from forum technical support to where it belongs.

RE: Atwood GH6-8E water heater does not ignite

I've had that happen to our WH twice. Both times I took a can of pressurized air like used to dust computers, blew it all around the visible controls and it would then light. It doesn't look like any of the air is really getting into openings, but it worked nevertheless.

RE: Brake question

The breakaway brake battery is only used when the breakaway switch is activated, and plays no role in braking when properly hooked to the tow vehicle. Add that to all I don't know about wiring. Non-braking could be caused by a bad ground, a bad brake wire connection, bad brake adjustment, stuck brake mechanisms, bad breakaway brake switch, and probably a host of other possibilities...

Brake question

As we are taking our TT and two other trailers to CA next month I'm taking them all to a mechanic/friend to have axles serviced. Two days ago I towed the flatbed to him and all lights worked as well as the trailer's brakes. Yesterday I hooked up a small utility 5x8 Haulmark van that hasn't been moved in more than two years and towed it with the same vehicle. Lights worked but the brakes did not. He hasn't called me yet to say what's wrong, but I am curious. Even if the brake battery is dead, shouldn't the brakes have worked being hooked to the TV? If so, what else? A bad ground? :@

RE: Convenience center panel question.

When my propane has been off for a while or run out, I run the stove until it will light. That seems to clear most of the air out and might make it easier to restart your WH.

RE: Convenience center panel question.

DSI refers to direct spark ignition on the water heater. I'm not sure but I think flt is fault.

RE: Suggestions to Use Sherline Scale

Thanks for the tips. It will be a few days before I can weigh it, but I'm guessing about 1400#. 1155 is the factory number, but the full width closet in the bedroom is full, since we lived in it winters, plus all the underneath storage is from the front continuing back a few feet. If I really used that storage I'd be over my Equalizer 1400# bars quite a bit. As it is we move as much weight as we can in the back of the trailer when traveling.

RE: Just bought my first Motorhome HELP!!!

I hope you unplugged it immediately. It would probably help people to know what unit you have and how old it is.

RE: Suggestions to Use Sherline Scale

My apologies, I wasn't very clear. But the light bulb just lit. I have some great 14" or so long blocks of oversized railway ties used by the RRs. If I stack two of them and place the scale on them, it will be about the height of the coupler when on the ball. Retracting the jack a tad then will give me the weight. The fog gets thicker every year.

Suggestions to Use Sherline Scale

How do you get the tongue coupler on the scale? I'm thinking of having the coupler positioned so it easily can lift off the ball. Then lower it, raise the jack, lay a small length of 2x on the scale, place the scale under the jack shoe and raise it until it lifts off the ball. That puts it a ways to the rear of the coupler and I have no idea how that affects accuracy. The directions suggest putting the screw on piece into the coupler for most accurate reading, so if you do it that way, what's your procedure?

RE: Need help on decision on buying TT for long term living

When I was working I hit almost 40 states over the years. Sometimes for a few weeks, other times for a few hours. I think an important factor not mentioned so far is how long will you be in one place. A 25 footer will be much easier to haul from town to town every few days than would a 35 footer. But for a month, you'll appreciate the extra space. My experience is even our 36 footer starts to shrink after a month. But those posts on weights are very important if you're looking for the larger units. Since you're new to RVing, I'd suggest buying something a year or two old from someone who really is motivated to sell it. There's a good chance whatever you pick, you'll soon learn what it is you want out of the trailer. With luck and having gotten a really good deal, you can get most of your money out of it when you're ready to get the one you really want.

RE: Baltimore, MD to Glacier National, Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore

Great advice above once you hit, say, Red Lodge. Like the others, it's not a good idea to pull anything major over Bear Tooth to Red Lodge. I'd say we've not had a good experience overnighting in Wyoming, but Cody may offer some nice campgrounds. I don't know. And as for the route from Balamer, we made a dozen trips from Bowie in the '90s so things may have changed. I'm sure you have that planned, but just in case. We'd take I 70 to Indianapolis, 625 miles for us, a bit less for you, the first day, then angle up to I-80 just before entering Iowa. If you think that portion of the trip was exciting, you'll love crossing Iowa, that's another 600+ to Omaha, Nebraska, continuing about 12,000 miles (really about 450 miles) into Cheyenne. Then start making choices, but you're close to great sights! Have fun and be safe.

RE: No power to front TV

RE: No power to front TV

Don't intend to offend you with a stupid suggestion, but have you unplugged the set and plugged in something else, like a cell phone charger, just to make sure there is or isn't power to the receptacle? You mention the breakers/fuses at another location. Have you found the one that supplies the TV? I never make mistakes. Except the small front door deck I just painted with interior paint. Don't even ask why I'm using paint on a deck. Blame it on the VA loan inspector.

RE: Winegard Carryout G2+ Satellite Dish

I've had one since September 2014. SD is fine with us and we needed NFL Sunday Ticket to be sure to get all the Green Bay Packer games. Now why would someone want to do that? Go figger. Oh, I get it. To watch Von Miller! Or is it Brock... Sorry, didn't mean to open old wounds. :B
