RE: Battery amp/hour ratings

... We rate batteries at the 20 hour rate ...Yup, you are right ... brain freeze :S I intended to say 20 hour rate. Here is the quote I found when I was googling my current Everstart 24DP-4: ...That's when I got suprise #2. See the Everstart batteries were rated at 105Ah. Apparently they were not rated with the 20-hr rate. So they realy fall in the 70 - 80 Ah range. The lable on the Wally World battery did say "122 AH @1 amp", that really threw me. Noel, I was looking for a house battery. I would expect deep cycle house batteries to show AH rating but they all dwell on CCA and MCA.

RE: Good Sam Club gone bad

All those Campingworld and Good Sam mailings are usefull. Some can be shredded and make good fire starting material and some can be rolled to make logs for the campfire. :C I think I may still have a few of the Readers Digest books I never ordered. The bills for unordered books also made good fire material. :B

Battery amp/hour ratings

--rant on-- My battery is getting weak and not holding a charge as long as it should so I have been doing online searches. It seems nobody wants to show amp/hour ratings online for deep cycle batteries. :( Today I went to Walmart to actually see what was printed on the battery(s) they had. One had what, at first, seemed to be a great rating. It was 122 A/H ...... but in the small print, @1 amp draw !!!!! The standard is to show A/H at 20 amps draw. Seems like Wally World is trying to pull a fast one. ---rant off--- Oh yes, I found on another forum that my 8 year old 108 A/H battery was actually at the 10 amp rate so it was really closer to a 70 A/H battery @20 amps.

RE: Outside Kitchen Frig

... Tapped into a 12vdc line running power to the heating unit ...Wire size = ??? I have a suspicion the wire you are trying to draw power from is not carrying the load. ...Same here. That wire needs to carry at least 10 amps PLUS the starting current, as mentioned earlier in the thread.

RE: Help Stoltzfus in PA sold us a brand new leaking camper!

I have never had dealings with Stoltzfus but have heard from others that they are reliable. Since the unit is new I would first give them a chance to make things right as they have offered to do. With new units, "stuff" happens.

RE: The Value of a Friendly Staff

Interesting thread. It seems to me that the campgrounds I have been to that have friendly and helpfull staff at checkin are also the ones that are also clean and well run. Maybe that cheerfull attitude at the front desk rubs off on the campers who in return respect the property. I can think of 2 camprgounds that I go to that have very nice, cheerfull, and helfull staff and they also have the cleanest restrooms, clean and well graded sites and utilities that ALWAYS work. I do recall one campground with a grumpy owner at the front desk that also had the worst sites I have ever encountered.

RE: Acadia to White Mountains

If you are looking for a bite to eat when you get to Twin Mountain area there is a place on Rt 3, about 100 yards before it crosses Rt 302. It is a gas station with a convenience store and a small deli with a grill that makes up hot or cold sandwiches. They make a wicked good steak and cheese grinder (or Sub if you are not from RI ;) ). There is a large porch on 2 sides with tables, some in the sun and some in the shade where you can eat and enjoy the view. My wife and I stop there every 2 years or so.

RE: Problem With Dometic Refrig Model 2862

I had that electrode come loose inside the ceramic insulator. A spot of crazy glue kept it in place until I could get a new electrode.

RE: Acadia to White Mountains

2 to 115 to 3 to 93 is what I would take. Steeper grades and curves on 112. This is the route we took (2 to 115 to 3) going from Acadia to Twin Mountain last summer.That would be my choice too. Rt 112 (The Kanc) is not a route you want to tow a camper.

RE: Flashlight for camping needed

I just bought the Harbor Freight $20(with coupon) Drillmaster 18 volt cordless drill & flashlight combo. The flashlight will light up the front of my shed 100 feet away like it was daylight. Flashlight has 9 100 lumen bulbs.

RE: You know you're living in 2015 when...

You know you are in 2015 when your son and his wife can't let you know they will be a hour late for dinner because your home phone doesn't have text messaging.

... Optimum - also known as Cablevision. They are in at least three states - NY, NJ, CT. I don't know if they are in RI. ...Thanks 1775. No, they are not in RI. We have a choice of Cox Cable and in some parts of the state, Verizon FIOS. Here is the note in my bill today. The date changes every time they mail something. On August 18, 2015, Cox Communications will start encrypting broadcast signals on Cox TV Starter. If you have a set-top box, digital transport adapter (the Cox mini box), or a retail CableCARD device connected to each of your TVs, you will be unaffected by this change. However, if you are currently receiving Cox TV Starter channels on any TV without equipment supplied by Cox Communications, you will lose the ability to view any channels on that TV. ....

RE: Pink Flamingos

Southwest Harbor on Mount Desert Island (Acadia) has a pink flamingo festival every year with lawns decorated to the max with pink flamingos. :C :C :C

...I.m just to cheap and pissed how the service companies make it so that we have to depend on them for everything,...As another Swamp Yankee a few miles North of you I feel the same way. Cox makes up for the price increases by decreasing service and channels. :M

... I have a VCR with a digital tuner. I connect the cable coming into the house directly to the coax connector on the VCR and its digital tuner gets all of the basic channels - no problem. It is not connected through the cable box. Our cable went digital about years ago. We use this when the cable box decides its time to update itself for a hour. This update (which is a regular occurrence) only effects the cable box and not the cable signal on the line. Works just fine.Can you tell us who your cable provider is?

RE: Amazing things some folks do

.... i'm afraid i'll be confronted by a meanie and told I cant use my red hose any more or I need to buy a red truck :( .That was covered in the RV owners handbook under rule 417, subsection C, paragraph II-3-B. "Hose color must match truck color". ;)
