RE: Storing TV

We leave our TV's and satellite receiver in the camper during hot Texas summers but bring their remotes into the house. Remote controls were failing after a few years of excessive heat. Just removing the batteries didn't save them.

RE: Wiring a boat

Consider connecting the + where the battery + connects to the outboard starter solenoid, and the - where the battery - connects to the outboard. Crimp eyelets to your wires for a cleaner connection. If there is enough threaded post exposed on the solenoid, get an additional nut to add your connection on top of the existing nut. This protects the integrity of the current carrying starter connection path.

RE: Adding a new battery...questions....(venting/gassing)

Use a vented box and hose. THIS May provide some ideas. See the 2 white boxes with the black vent hose. HERE is a wall mount vent. See the Frequently Bought Together section

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

I was hoping for a quick and dirty way to join >20 AWG conductors.I'm not saying don't use them, just they are not allowed on current carrying conductor where I work. We use THESE for current carrying conductors

RE: Harbor Freight - what happened to the 20% off coupons

Sorta related... Has anyone tried out these types of terminals off eBay? Yes, an electric heat gun is mandatory.Not off eBay. We use them at work to solder a drain wire on the braid of shielded cables. We are not allowed to use them for conductor to conductor splicing. The workmanship can't be inspected and the flux can't be cleaned off.

RE: Tyler Texas area dry campoing

Tyler SP. Don't plug in and your dry camping. Tyler State Park is great. But you would still have to pay the $22/$26/$30 fee.He didn't say anything about price. His requirement is within 15 miles of Tyler

RE: Help!!!! Travel Trailer Back in

It's the Scoop Maneuver This guy calls it the Swoop I can't get into my driveway without doing this. My street is narrow and has deep ditches on both sides

RE: Help!!!! Travel Trailer Back in

This it's about 1/2 hour long but it has some good info I'm looking for something that explains our illustrates the S Maneuver. Basically, it's drive in the opposite lane of your target site. As you approach the target site stear towards the target site entrance. When your truck front tire gets into the site, turn in the opposite direction to place your truck in the center of the roadway. Follow the center of the roadway until the back of the camper just clears the site entrance. This puts you at a good angle to start backing in. Forget about people watching you. Chances are nobody even noticed you arrived.

RE: Another Towing Question

Set up the hitch properly, fill the tank with gas, hitch up the trailer, air up all tires to max pressure according to tire sidewall, put all the people you plan to take camping with you and go weigh it at a CAT Scale. There are several in your area. You will know how much axle weight you'll have left. Your concern will be not exceeding the 3800Lb rear axle rating too much when the TT is loaded. Weigh it again after it's loaded ready to camp

RE: Using RV generator as backup for house?

Having never lived with 200-amp service Furnace fans for gas... Are they 240 vac?Mine has 2 blowers, both 120V. The typical squirrel cage blower to move the warm air into the living area takes 30A to start and runs at about 6A. The draft inducer blower to create negative pressure in the unit uses 6A to start and a little over 2A to run.

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

In the meantime, I will continue to be nice to the lady and maybe bring her some Louisiana Boudin, and maybe she will forget about it all! :hA muffaletta from Pronia`s Deli would work

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

It depends on some factors and the state you live in. Here's a little write-up on the subject. You have to ask yourself "is this house worth the hassle". You could petition to have this clause of the CC&R amended out. I'm sure that would backfire on you, and you would be reasonable for the legal fees involved. With that said, your neighbor looking down on you through her upstairs window has been given the right to protect HER property value.

RE: Genset carb upkeep:  drain it and/or exercise it? Both?

I ran my champion open frame generator about 4 years ago during Hurricane Harvey. Once I no longer needed it I drained the carb and fuel tank, blew them dry and stored it. I pulled it out this weekend for this Texas freeze mess going on. I filled the tank and it fired right up. It ran 80 hours non-stop without a hiccup. Once I no longer need it, I'll blow it out and store it until who knows when. Hopefully forever. If I know I'm going to run it in the next few months,I do nothing. Just put it in storage.

RE: No brakes on trailer

Not going to respond to all that "stuff", but here is just one item: Hairline heat cracks are normal in bonded linings and should not be cause for concern. This can be found on page 16. Oh WOW, their example illustrates what looks to me as some serious cracking. I would have freaked out and tossed those shoes if I saw that on mine. Now I know. Thanks for sharing. Read page 12 about tire skid. They say adjust the controller to tire slide on dry pavement while traveling 20 mph then back off just enough to eliminate tire skid. I don't do that either.

RE: Converter Question

The IOTA DLS-30 is now on sale HERE for $23 plus shipping. That's an amazing deal. Shipping cost me $7. It's a fixed output without the IQ-4 Smart Controller. However, the output can be adjusted by an easily accessible potentiometer under the top cover.
