RE: Fantastic just quiet!

Check for power AT the fan motor with the switch on. If you have power at the motor and no go, the motor died

RE: OTR Indoor Antenna

Sorry I should have been more clear, I meant for the sticks and bricks. I'm dumping cable TV and their constant price increases.

OTR Indoor Antenna

Just looking to get local live stations. I know the rooftop antennas work well but is anyone using one of those OTR Indoor Antennas? Don't really want to put an antenna on the roof but was wondering if any of the indoor antennas are worth using.

RE: You can buy S637 tires here, but install: HAHAHAHA

The OP got the Discount Tire Shop employee who just got hired "away" from Taco Bell. OP sounds like one of (long ago) poster Fast Eagle's kin. BTW - The Chinese can -and do- mfgr *quality* tires (to mfgr's specs). Even have Michelin factories in China... Nonsense. Have you ever done business with Discount Tire? They actually an excellent training program where the level of service is to a certain standard nationwide. In 40 years of trading with various tire companies they're the ones I do business with.

RE: Battery maintenance questions

Depends a lot on the weather. I check mine about once a month or so when it's warm if I remember. It's been cold and raining for the last 3-4 months so I haven't checked it at all. You'll get the feel of it. You certainly don't have to check it once a week.

RE: Reuben Casserole

We've made a variation of that recipe using Wishbone Thousand Island dressing, sauerkraut and shredded swiss cheese. Very simple and very good too.

RE: You can buy S637 tires here, but install: HAHAHAHA

Next time just order your tires through Discount Tire. They'll match any online price including Walmarts. At least the ones by me will

RE: Water Heater Replacement

Just a suggestion. See if a 10 gallon will fit. C.B. Not a bad idea if the OP has the room. Most rigs that size come with 6 gal.

RE: Is SHE GONNA BLOW!

Ram and Chevy are both good alternate choices.

RE: Quality Question about Small Inverters

SpeakEasy, That Victron should work nicely for your needs, and yes, hard wire it for sure. I have a 300w Samlex psw inverter that I only use it for the TVs in the front and bedroom of our trailer and it's more than enough wattage for that. As to the 120 v outlet side, what some of us on this forum have done is to run the 120 v wiring to an outlet box outside the trailer and plug your shore cord into the outlet box. This makes all your outlets inside the trailer live. Of course you must turn off all other breakers such as your converter/charger, microwave, etc. I turn off all breakers except my 15a breaker that's for the outlets. You can also use extension cords, a transfer switch, etc if you like.

RE: Quality Question about Small Inverters

But here's the deal on inverters; The cheapest have dirty power and are not thermo-controlled, and have noisy fans that run all the time. The better ones are pure sine wave, clean power, that have thermo- controlled fans that run only when needed. The top tier (expensive) inverters (like Morningstar) don't have fans at all. I have a Samlex 300 watt PST series inverter that I bought from Best Converter about 5 years ago and am very satisfied. Very quiet thermo-controlled fan, when it comes on at all. They go for about $145 now. I'm looking ONLY at pure sine wave inverters. And the one that I'm looking at in the <$50 range also says it has a thermostatically-controlled fan. -Speak That's gonna be tough. Let us know what you find out about it.

RE: liquid roof

I have seen some posts here on the liquid roof and rvroofmagic so i will give you my two cents. Our shop used both quite extensively. The liqud roof we get from epdmcoatings.com is actually epdm but its expensive but does the job. Rv roof magic is also a liquid but you don't need to rush the solvent is already in the can just mix and pour out and put the lid tightly on the can and it won't get hard unlike the liquid roof. Also the rvroofmagic has higher volume solids and better elongation and is less expensive. The big difference is if you don't have a epdm roof or if someone put some other coating you do need the primer with the liquid roof but with the rvroofmagic you don't so right there you are saving $185.00 dollars. Anyway hopes that helps those posting both products To the OP, thanks for the info from someone who's actually been there and done that. The only helpful post in this thread

RE: Anyone lose a set of keys

I always feel so bad for the OP in threads like this, when they post something well-intentioned and then everyone chimes in to tell them they're doing it wrong. The old saying "no good deed goes unpunished"

RE: Hub grease seal.

Stop pumping and wipe off excess when fresh grease appears. If you start seeing fresh grease appear out the front of the hub, the hub is overfilled with grease, and has likely already blown out the inner seal. I've dismantled numerous hubs that use the EZ lube system. The majority of the grease pumped in through the zerk fitting goes BEHIND the inner bearing, and blows out the seal.Wrong. Grease is supposed to come out the front when the EZ Lube zerk is used. It's not overfilled, that's how it works. If you think it's overfilled, it would call into question the accuracy of the rest of your statements too. I have the EZ Lube system, have used it, and know how it's supposed to work. X2, have had no problems with the Ez Lube but it needs to be done correctly. As to the poster who posted above about the problems with the boat trailers he worked on; those are Bearing Buddy systems. Nothing close to the Ez Lube system.

RE: Quality Question about Small Inverters

I can recommend the Go Power 300w pure sine wave If shopping online Amazon shows the weight of items, Also demensions etc More weight like the go power, means more Mass ... copper in the transformer coils, better Alu heat sink, better housing case Go Power makes good inverters. But here's the deal on inverters; The cheapest have dirty power and are not thermo-controlled, and have noisy fans that run all the time. The better ones are pure sine wave, clean power, that have thermo- controlled fans that run only when needed. The top tier (expensive) inverters (like Morningstar) don't have fans at all. I have a Samlex 300 watt PST series inverter that I bought from Best Converter about 5 years ago and am very satisfied. Very quiet thermo-controlled fan, when it comes on at all. They go for about $145 now.
