RE: Reflectix Insulation Application

It'd be more effective to keep the sunlight from ever reaching the glass, so outside would be better. However, keeping it outside has lots of issues- how do you keep it there, wind, theft, damage from "stuff" being outside. Most I believe will just put it inside for ease of use, and it does pretty well there even if it's not "The Best" from a thermal aspect. CC

RE: Black Tank Roof Vent and Bathroom Roof Vent Too Close?

I liked the idea to route the vent opening somewhere else on the roof. It might look a little Beverly Hillbillyish, but who's looking on your roof anyway? Regarding vent covers, since I put mine on, I don't think I've ever actually closed my vents. Well, maybe a few times if I know I'm going down a dusty road... I wouldn't put them on backward or sideways though..

RE: Can’t find low point release valve

You could just uncap the red & blue lines, then turn on the pump. that would drain the tank pretty quickly. CC

RE: Waterproofing the 1/8" thick exposed plywood

I was going to suggest brush on polyurethane or some sealer like that, but I think MFL's suggestion of painting it would be just as good. It seems to work on house siding, right? CC

RE: PD Charge Wizard Pendant

Thanks for all the comments, It makes sense that the light is acting as a voltmeter - I think that's a good way to look at it. Although, I'd rather not look at it at all when I'm not plugged in! Yes, I have read the manual several times, and it never addresses the pendant behavior when power is not applied to the converter. I guess I'll have to rethink the pendant placement; I hate lights on - especially blinking ones! - when I'm trying to sleep. Thanks again! CC

PD Charge Wizard Pendant

I recently replaced my old magnatek buzzbox converter with a PD9245, and have a quick question about the Charge Wizard pendant. Is the LED supposed to be illuminated when the trailer is not plugged in - i.e. no 120v to the converter, only running on battery? My Charge Wizard light is on in this case, and I would think that if it's not plugged in, the light would be off. (and this would be my preference!) Just wondering what someone else with this unit sees. Thanks! CC

RE: Thoughts on the 'need' factor of a main line surge protector

people will spend $5000 for FBP to impress the neighbors but not a bumpy FBP ??? I tried, came up with federal bureau of prisons. Friends of Border Patrol? I think Full Body Paint? Freakin' Bodacious Patio-light? :) Too many TLAs. . . . Three Letter Acronyms And I don't have an EMS. Plugging in is a rarity for me. CC

RE: Quick overnight

Heck when I sleep I couldn't hear a dump truck driving through a nitroglycerin plant :B What's that sound? You hear it? It's a funny squeaky sound. :)

RE: Email digest for subscribed threads?

That's kinda what I was thinking, but thought I'd ask with the barest glimmer of hope. :)

Email digest for subscribed threads?

On many other forums I frequent, when I subscribe to a thread I have the option of getting an email for every new message or a daily digest or sometimes a weekly digest. I only see the "email for every new post" option here, is that just the way it is, or am I missing the "stop spamming my inbox!" button? :) Thanks! CC

RE: Recs for Solar Cut Off Switch?

Little disconnect switch I found it amusing that this "Little" switch is listed with dimensions of 48x36x48 inches in the Amazon technical details. But it is only 9.1 oz... I bet it floats well. :)

RE: Help and Advice on a badly placed 5th wheel

Somewhere in this multipage novel the OP mentioned Rockport, TX. ... which as I look at a map, explains the comment about really sandy & usually wet. :) CC

RE: Who says I need to take up space for a Gooseneck Hitch!

Seems to be working, what's the problem? :)
