RE: Can someone please look at this trim again??

The pictures are so wide I can't read the posts. Silicone doesn't belong there.

RE: Turkeys back

We went to a Turkey Shoot once, mainly out of curiosity. We wanted to see the tiny guns and how they could hold them and shoot them. .....Sometimes they just wing it. :Z

RE: CATV cable only?

... "Radio Shack RG-6 Quad Shield, 18 AWG, Type CATV". Very dumb question but is this cable for cable ONLY or can it be used for HD satellite?....The "Type CATV" just means it meets the requirements for cable TV drop wire which is more critical than 10 or 20 foot runs in a house or in your case a short run for satellite. Yes, you can use it.

RE: YAYS or NAYS on Straight Talk ZTE 288C LTE Mobile Hotspot

There is a 6 page thread here: (Woodalls version) LINK I think this quote from that thread says the most with the fewest words: Skylark, The Z288L has the red map indicating the Verizon network. It also has "LTE-V" in the bottom left corner. The Z289L has the blue map indicating the AT&T network. These also have "GSM" in the bottom left corner. (**AVOID THIS ONE **) ... I had (and returned) the AT&T version and it did not work reliably because Straight Talk runs these through a proxy in Florida that will only connect to a few web sites. I understand the Verizon (288) model works but it IS throttled well below LTE speeds.

RE: Flickering interior lights - Problem Solved!

Flickering lights were in vogue when a tallow and wick were involved...So you remember those days too. ;)

RE: Got shocked while washing trailer

He has an open ground that needs to be fixed. .....That is ALWAYS the reason. Even it there are other problems the skin will NEVER be hot if the trailer is properly grounded.

RE: Grey water disposal with no sewer connection

I think that's the largest picture I have seen posted here...and so wide I can't read a line of posts, the line just goes off the side of my screen.

RE: 300 feet of Underground Cat6 ???

...Question, (1) Would I get any protection from lighting if I ran a bare wire (grounded at each end) in the conduit beside the CAT5e cable? I am thinking about using some wire that was original used to run an electrical fence. It is probably in the 20 gauge range and I think it is aluminum. Probably will not give any protection (2) Would this "ground" wire close to the CAT5e cable interfere with the signal? That wire would have little or no effect. We used to run bundles of Cat5 together in cable racks all the time. Adjacent wires were never a problem.

RE: Strange Electrical Issue

A little more info... The TV is an RCA 32". It shut off again yesterday after about 4-5 hours of continuous operation with no channel changing and no volume change. As soon as it shut off I unplugged it from the inside cabinet outlet and plugged it right back in and the TV came right on and worked fine the rest of the evening. I'm leaning towards some kind of overheating issue with the TV.I am inclined to think that it is an "auto sleep" thing several posters mentioned. Try doing something simple like changing the volume every 2 hours or so. My Sharpe is supposed to shut off in 4 hours if nothing is changed but it has never happened, my wife changes channels often. :) Do you have the model number?

RE: Power usage!?

My power bill was $173 last month!... Heres what the bill said: total kWh-1638, days-32, kWh per day-51 ...$173 divided by 1638kWh = 10.56 cents per kWh. I wish my electric rate was that low, my previous 2 bills were 20 cents per kWh. :M (Last month my house used 397 kWh and it cost $79.69) 1,638 kWh for 32 days = 51 kWh PER DAY or 2.13 kWh per hour. That seems like a lot to average over 2,000 watts per hour in a 24 hour day.

RE: WIFI printer ?

...I use WiFi for both my printers, neither of which is near the router. Both work perfectly....My laptop uses WiFi, my wife's desktop upstairs uses WiFi, my printer uses WiFi, my webcams use WiFi all through my $50 WiFi router which then connects, via an ethernet cable, to my cable company modem. The cable company only "sees" that I have one device. It all works perfectly and my wife and I can share the one printer.

RE: 300 feet of Underground Cat6 ???

...This should say it all.. THICKNET That link SAYS IT IS OBSOLETE......Yes, that device IS obsolete. There is a whole new generation of coax devices that convert Ethernet packets to RF over the coax using a different frequency band for each direction to maintain full duplex (send receive at the same time) operation. You can get a pair of devices for just about $100.

RE: Dodge diesel p/u fire

... A month later I got a safety recall letter notice from Chrysler stating the RAM trucks with 6.7L Cummins turbo diesel . The fuel heater could start an engine fire, they said their inspector said in was not a manufacturing defect..... NOT a manufacturing defect :h Are they saying they engineered it to start a fire :? I wonder what the reaction would be if you brought in the recall notice AND the burned up truck?

RE: Strange Electrical Issue

Can you unplug it then plug it into the same outlet and have it come back on? How long before it shuts off and is it the same amount of time each time? Both questions just restate the good troubleshooting tips posted earlier.

RE: Propane extension

... my propane griddle came with a regulator that has an output pressure of 11" W.C. and 95,000 btu. ....The auto changeover and regulator on RVs has 11" W.C. output to feed the stove, fridge, and furnace. You need to remove the regulator from the grill and use the low pressure from the RV directly to the grill. I did that with my Coleman Roadtrip grill. I have a long hose from my grill that I plug into the existing quick connect on the trailer. No messing with extra tanks or high pressure connections.

RE: California Battery Core Deposit

Rhode Island battery core fee is $5 and not taxed. That is interesting. RI controls what companies can charge for cores????? Based on the previous posts, it seems every state sets a different fee so I stated what the fee is in RI. In answer to your comment, yes I guess RI does set the core fee for stores in RI.
