RE: Pushing the Limits and My Moderation Philosophy

I just want to say THANKS to the OP and all the moderators. It can't be easy dealing with so much content and having to make instant judgement calls. I have seen one or two posts about spam but I never see the spam so it seems the mods handle it well and quickly. Thank You

RE: I'm completely discouraged after reading these posts...

Once upon a time, long long ago, my wife and I wanted to move up from a pop up to a small travel trailer. We spent a year looking and I spent a lot of time lurking here on RV.NET. I learned a lot from the problems others had and how the problems were resolved. We DID find a trailer that we both instantly knew was the one for us. Last week we came back from a 12 day trip to Maine, mostly in the Bar Harbor area. One afternoon I picked wild Maine blueberries that were no more then 15 feet from our awning. We had a big batch of blueberry pancakes for breakfast the nex morning. :C :B Those pancakes, LOADED with blueberries, were so good we did the same thing 2 days later. :B Ahhhhh, this camping thing can be so tough.

RE: Speeding in campgrounds

... I'm a traffic engineer and the studies back me. If a large percentage of drivers are exceeding the posted speed limit, there is something wrong with the speed limit. ....That is true on a public highway but is not valid in a high density area like a campground or a parking lot.

RE: Speeding in campgrounds

I am one of those "slowpokes" everyone complains about. One incident comes to mind from reading these posts. I was driving back to my site and there was a wide section of campground road between the playground and the seasonal sites. There was a large dump truck parked on the gravel next to the road. Two red flags in my mind, playground with kids and blocked view from dump truck about 10 feet to the side, so I slowed a little more below the 10MPH campground limit. Sure enough, a boy about 10 years old ran out from behind the dump truck. I hit the brakes hard. The boy's eyes got big as he saw me. I was relieved that I was still several feet away from him when he realized I was there and I was stopped. I will continue to be a "slowpoke" and I don't care who is behind me, even if it is the campground staff in their golf carts.

RE: Dometic fridge temp control

... I slid it back into the clip, but it was so loose that there is no way it will stay while driving. ...Are you putting the thermister in the correct part of the clip? The thermister should fit into the plastic loop that is between your thumb and first finger in the picture. The side away from your thumb has a deep slot that slides over the fin.

RE: Atwood Water Heater Strange Problem

I would guess that the high humidity compromised the ceramic insulator allowing the high voltage spark to jump to ground someplace other than the spark gap at the burner. Also could be a weakness in the wire insulation leading to the igniter. Setting the spark gap to the smallest that will work may help.

RE: My normal morning routine

.. I got a 10 cups of filtered hot water. Forgot the coffee. ....The very reason you needed the coffee in the first place. ;)

RE: Virginia Roll Call (Just for Fun)

My wife's name is Virginia, I thought you were calling her. ;)

RE: Intermittent Brake Light Issues

Spray the 7 pin connectors with a liberal dose of WD40. I have "fixed" a lot of electrical issues with that stuff and it is a cheap and easy test to do.

RE: Norcold N821 takes FOREVER to get to cool temps

... Only thing different is that the leads for the heater were supplied 120V separately and without being regulated by the control board. ...What is the voltage to the heater leads when it IS being regulated by the control board? Could there be a bad connection in the 120 volt wiring causing low voltage and poor element heating?

RE: To Mt. Washington, NH from I-91

I have never traveled that section of 302 but I think it would be a more scenic ride. It will be a bit shorter but also a bit slower. All of 302 that I have been on is good road.

RE: Cannot get lower channel TV reception

There is NO MORE LOW BAND TV signals from 0-13. ....Lookup WLBZ in Bangor Maine, it transmitts on RF channel 2 and displays as 2.1. After that, lookup WVII in Bangor Maine. WVII transmitts on RF channel 7 and displays as 7.1. WFVX is a sister station on the same frequency and displays as 7.2. Continuing, lookup WMEB which is part of MPBN (Maine Public Broadcasting Network). That one transmitts on RF channel 9 and displays as 12.1, 12.2, 12.3 and 12.4. Sadly, when I am in the Bar Harbor area I usually can't get WLBZ (NBC affiliate) because my Batwing just doesn't do well at the bottom of the VHF band. I do get all the others. We all thought the digital transition was going to put all the channels in the UHF band.

RE: Have A Major Made In China Purchase In Mind?

Well, if "China" goes "belly-up", I guess we just "Buy American" again, and put some of our unemployed back to work! Sounds OK to me!Since China has been undercutting American manufacturing and driving them out of business, there may not be anyone making the products to "buy American". :?

Thank you LEOs for July 4th

This past 4th of July came with many warnings of potential terrorist activity. Fortunately the weekend went well. While most of us were having a good time with cookouts, parades, concerts, fireworks and all, there many that could not enjoy that time with their families. Law enforcement officers from the town to the federal level were working and away from their families so we all could be safe. I know that ALL Rhide Island State Troopers were on duty this weekend. I suspect it was like that accross this great country. Also EMS and firefighters were on duty to serve where needed. A heartfelt THANK YOU to all those people that worked so that we could celebrate the birthday of our nation in safety.

RE: Problem with fridge heating up when traveling

The temp in my Dometic would rise while driving (running on LP) and then cool properly at night (120vac shore power). Found the LP pressure was too low AFTER the usual cleaning of the gas jet, burner, and vent tube. Never got a "check" light on gas but the flame was just a bit bigger with a good regulator.

RE: What to see/do & where to stay in Rhode Island

It is IGGY'S Doughboys & Chowder House in Point Judith. Link I prefer the clam cakes from Aunt Carrie's but their clam chowder in not that good. Be aware that RI clam cakes are nothing like Maine clam cakes that are mostly clams. The "summer cotages" of the rich in Newport are impressive, to say the least. Cliff walk in Newport will give you a fantastic view of the ocean AND the back side of many of those "summer cotages".

RE: Women's World Cup Soccer

A hat trick in the first 16 minutes, wow! That is a first for World Cup Soccer by either gender team. Those ladies expended more calories in 90 minutes that I do in a week.

RE: Is it bad to drive with trickle charger on chassis battery?

... Dug out a pair of little solar panels someone gave me years ago (when I was more of a tinkerer myself), set them on the dash and clipped them on. ....It is only a problem if you set your coffee cup on them while driving. :)
