RE: Best portable heater (30 amp) for my rv?

We have 2 of the small cheaper 1500W ceramic heaters that are common to Walmart etc. They are easy to store and you can run 2 on high (25A for both).

RE: solar charger

Disconnect the battery (good for several months) or 100W solar panel and controller.

RE: Deep cycle battery maintenance

Remove the cap and you'll see a vent well. Fill to the bottom are almost to the bottom. Filling to the case means water will come out due to temperature or trying to vent.

RE: Deep cycle battery maintenance

Add distilled water until it just reaches the bottom of the fill tube. Do not fill to the top of the case/cap. This allows for a adequate reserve and for the battery to vent. You can buy a battery filler bottle that will fill them to the correct level.

RE: Registering an out-of-state purchace

I'd get OR police or highway patrol input, document what they say and keep it in the RV. What about insurance as that would be my main concern? If I had insurance I'd probably use the RV in OR.

RE: RV Water heater

Sorry to be a pest but what is involved in cleaning out the water heater? Open the PSV and flush?I was referring to the cleaning and adjusting the propane to reduce the noise.

RE: RV Water heater

Maybe it needs cleaning or adjusting. Otherwise just turn it off at night.

RE: TPMS for the alcoa wheels

Install Borg Dual Wheel metal stems and you'll no longer need extenders and you can add TPMS tire sensors.

RE: 50 amp surge protector

My EMS has protected my rig from 160V so yes it saved my equipment. I've also had reverse polarity twice (30A pedestal). Plus numerous cases of low voltage. The surge protection has never detected a surge. I recommend the much better EMS which won't connect power when there is a fault and disconnects when there is a fault. I have the PI HW50C with a remote inside. There is a lot of additional protection with a EMS that surge protectors don't provide. It's like insurance...

RE: How do you pay your bills on the road on extended trips?

We like to check our accounts periodically. We've been hacked several times and the most interesting one was plane tickets. The flight was 3 weeks away from Dallas to Atlanta and they got the red carpet greeting at the airport. Go figure! Actually the $950 hiking boots (not a typo) from CO was interesting. The day before delivery they changed the Fed Ex address to a nearby city and a lady accepted the package. I'm reasonably sure the CC information was stolen at a local hospital cafeteria. Guess they don't pay the staff enough. For clarity we've never paid a dime for fraud on our accounts. Instead that's paid by those that pay interest on their accounts...

RE: cut and paste no longer works when posting?

Here's my cut and paste, very easy. What changed for you, browser, you're hacked, etc? I am trying to post a new topic in one of the forums related to a repair I'm working on, and it has a few links in it, making it very, very difficult to post without doing cut & paste. Used to be able to do cut & paste when posting, now it won't allow such anymore. Is there a way around this, a way to paste in a bunch of text when posting? Without being able to cut & paste, a lot of things I'd like to post on here, would be very difficult if not impossible..

RE: How do you pay your bills on the road on extended trips?

Online, we cut the home cords years ago. Verizon hot spot or cell phone hot spot, at home or on the road. Not concerned with someone using our WiFi, they would have to be close enough to get it's limited range and have the password. And DTV DVR moved from home to RV, hence no cable. But not off grid at home with utility power, water and natural gas.

RE: Solar Cable Tangles

I've used 3M 35 red tape for 3 years to help located irrigation emiters in plants. Still looks good. Available in hardware strores in different colors to suit your needs.

RE: Tire mismatch

Don't you have a ID tag that gives you the tire size? What is the tire DOT date for each tire? At 7+ years it's time for new tires regardless of tread etc.

RE: do you really need a battery?

You absolutely need a battery! For both the trailer brakes and smoke detectors for starters. Plus the long wire run from the alternator to the house w/o a battery may cause unacceptabe voltage variations etc. Why would you not have one?

RE: Flaming Gorge to Page Utah. Monument Valley, Escalante NP

After Moab have you considered Mesa Verde National Park known for its well preserved Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings? Valley of the Gods is an interesting drive through. Bryce and Zion are also near your route. While we like water related areas we would go to GC N Rim before L Powell which may also have very low water levels, detracting from the scenery for us.

RE: Standard definition from direct tv

This post provides additional background information. The AT&T forums have questions about the future of SD. Speculation: The 101 satellite location is very valuable since it covers the 48 states and Alaska (Dish Network has eastern and western arc satellites). The 99 and 101 satellites are also centrally located. The numbers represent longitude and all 3 satellites are south of Texas. DTV announced the end of SD first in 2019 and then 2020 but I suspect the apparent loss of DTV customers has been a significant factor.
