RE: $600K Of Marijuana Seized in MH Near Joliet, IL

I would say someone tipped them off on that.

Of course it's flat. If it wasn't everyone but the ones standing at the top would fall off!!

RE: Space Heater

Actually yes, I do think they should be charged less.... Though I doubt, it would happen. The van people just are not a big enough part of the business to cater to. So now the campgrounds are thieves!

RE: Space Heater

For the most part I don’t think the people doing that with a 30 amp service is stealing. I think what there try to do is keep from tripping there 30 amp breaker at times. I know on my old 5th wheel it was a 30 amp. If the a/c was on and say the coffee pot maybe the water heater then someone used the microwave it would trip the breaker unless one was turned off for the time the microwave was used. I think the majority is just trying to prevent that from happening.When that happens, they are using more than the 30 amps they are paying for.:S Lets do the math. So I can use 30 amps 24/7 that's 86.4 kwh per day Ok now the RV is pulling 20 amps 24/7 (which it will not because things turning on and off) that's 57.6 kwh per day A 1500 watt heater plug into the 120v pole outlet because that's over amps the RV 30 amp breaker by 2.5 amps. Let say it heating for 30 mins and off 30 mins that's heating for 12 hr. That's 18 kwh per day Ok by that 57.6 kwh + 18 kwh = 75.6 kwh used. So 86.4 kwh - 75.6 kwh = 10.8 kwh that's not used.So calling them a thief is a little harsh when there not.I bet my figure is pretty dang close if not a little on the high side.

RE: Slideout Rocker Switches Dead, Remote Works OK

Next I would pull the panel with the switches and check to see if I had power there or a lose wire.

RE: Space Heater

So what’s the difference in running a heat pump that a lot of rv’s have today and people using a 1500 watt electric heater? I guess people with the heat pumps is not abusing the system and people using a space heater is?

RE: Any HVAC experts?

Just a short piece of rain gutter to divert the water to each side so it doesn’t drip on you heat pump.

RE: Peach Cobbler

RE: suggestions on models

Our Jayco HT has a 74" bedroom height. I'm also 6'2" and have no problem with it. Maybe I just got use to our old 5er we had for 17 years that was way lower.

RE: Ins and outs of mice :)

I’ve always had a couple outdoor cats that have and are good mousers. Never had a problem with mice in the rv in 30+ years.

RE: Those with portable surge protector

During a lighting storm always unplug. There's not a surge protector that going to help with a lighting strike. With a close lighting strike it will just flash over the surge and get what your trying to protect. Remember lighting has extremely high voltage and amperage.Don't rely on the surge protector.

Those with portable surge protector

While plugged in at your home do you always use your surge protector? I can see why to always use at campgrounds because of lots of things there. High demand on power causing low voltage- high voltage-bad wiring-etc etc. But at home those are not near as likely to happen. Just curious what other do.

RE: Slides- Important stuff AND what they don't tell you.

Our old 5th wheel 2002 bought new had it till just a few months ago. Only had a problem with the slide out one time a couple years back. It would not go out even and only a foot or so. Some how lost the bolt that connected the drive gear rod connecting the side gear rail together. Put in a new bolt no more problem. One of the reasons we chose the floor plan on our new 5th wheel you have full access to everything in it but one section of cabinets when the slides is in.

RE: Need help with sulphur smelling water

Actually, no need to "force feed" into the pressure side. You simply meter the chemical down into the well itself, then pump the water out from the water table. Lyle Are you sure that's legal to put chemical's in the water table?

RE: Need help with sulphur smelling water

Sulfur is a gas that in the water so aeration of the water will release the gas in most cases. I don’t know if a filter on it own that will get rid of the smell.

RE: Jayco Eagle replacement ac motor

OK just making sure. It doesn't matter which side of the capacitor which one of the brown wires goes to. Just be sure you get the red-black and white back correctly. Dose the new motor use the same size capacitor as the old? Not a bad idea to replace the old capacitor when you replace the motor.
