    I saw this gem in Clarkdale, AZ yesterday.
    It reminded me of John Steinbeck's rig in "Travels with Charley"

    Alright, I was saying tank heaters aren't needed just a few weeks ago. I change my mind after spending all night in stormy 1 degree weather. The temperature probe I have on my water pump hit 30 degrees with my furnace running. I'm glad I had something ext...  more

    Still fulltiming in New England. Spent the last few days without shore power and kept running out of battery way faster than I felt I should. It looks like they probably just aren't charging well. I have an old single stage 13.6v 55 amp converter, think a...  more

      Rick & Lil I agree with the previous post but,.....ummmm, if you're without shore power, how do you "keep running out of battery"? Are you able to recharge the battery somehow....generator?? Also, if you have drained the battery too far & too often it can become da...  more

      Happy Hobos Toob, Temperature has a lot do due with battery power.  Long time ago a friendly mechanic told me about a quick solution to low battery power in extreme cold.  He said that at 30 deg. F a fully charged battery loses 30% of its starting power.&...  more

        Bandit455 Actually those batteries are listed as Deep cycles and also have a pretty good reserve capacity, and then multiply that X3...I wonder how much of a charge they are getting with the genny running for just an hour or two per day. But looking at the specs on...  more

      Okietravellers Bandit that is true. He probably can’t pack in the “depth of charge” in that short of time. I had to go through desulphinization sessions last week and that certainly brought my T105s back up to par. You are right. We don’t have any idea of how much he...  more

      Larry Holbrook - LEGALLY SINGLES ALUMNI Hopefully there's some kind of a TV source switch somewhere's in the RV - Winegard makes a lot of them, but I'm sure others do also - if you can find it, then with the brand & model number we can probably find a user manual - it's possible the TV's maybe ...  more

      xctraveler I assume since you are getting Cable in the LR that you have turned off the OTA amplifier, where that is. Have you gone to the TV menu and selected cable and scanned for channels? Again since you have it on one TV I would assume you know how to do this. I...  more Hide 1 Reply

      Tom&Laura Did you check the TV Menu , it probably needs to be switched to cable then channel search. Hide 1 Reply

      Judith & Mark On our rig there are separate cable connectors for cable vs. over the air. Since it is working in the living room, I would expect it to be something like that. Hide 1 Reply

        Larry Holbrook - LEGALLY SINGLES ALUMNI With multiple TV’s and multiple sources (antenna, cable, ?), there has to a Winegard wall plate amplifier or a Quest video distribution center or other similar device - finding & identifying that device should provide the needed solution -

      Halfloaf Dickens RV Park outside Moncure (so... a bit of a commute to Durham) is very cheap. It looks like a parking lot. I stayed there and felt very safe and secure. A good chunk of the occupants are there full time and go to work in the morning and come back at...  more
