Why is...

    I just swapped my Winegard Rayzor 8500 for the Jack 8300.  I went from 12 channels to 27 sitting in the same location.  I could never get the Rayzor to work after a few times.  It would not rotate.  I went through 4 of these, but only purchased 1. Former owner had the batwing post and crank...

    My water pump is letting water flow through and is filling up and overflowing the fresh water tank while on city water.  I plan to it a check valve in line to stop this.  My understanding is the checkvalve in the pump sticks open allowing this to happen.  Instead of $200+ for a new pump this is...

    Winegard Rayzar

    Has anyone had success with the Winegard Rayzor over the air antenna?  On a previous MH I installed one and it worked for a few times.  It would receive the signals from the direction it was pointing, but it would not rotate.  Winegard replaced it with a new one and I had the same results. We...

    2014 Tour tires

    Getting ready to leave Florida and I need to check the tires.  This unit is new to us and I have not had it weighed yet.  It looks like the dealer set them at 125 psi.  This seems high to me.  Until I get a scale weight, any suggestions?

    We just changed to the unlimited Verizon plan.  I will be watching to see what the "gotya" turns out to be.  We have a "smart" tv so I hooked it up to the wifi so I can stream videos and movies.  I will let you know if I find them slowing us down or not.

    Sinks drain into black tank

    In a thread, I started asking Kevin about his black tank.  I decided I should start a new thread since this is not about solar.  In my just purchased 2014 Tour QZ I find, thanks to Kevin, that my kitchen and 1/2 bath sinks drain into the black tank and not the gray.  Has anyone changed this?  If...

    What can I run?

    I recently purchased a used MH that has a solar array on the roof.  The former owner installed it.  I was told it is 1kw.  I have 6 house batteries and a 2800 watt inverter.  I wonder what I can run and for how long.  Is this 1kw/hr? At 12 volts is it putting out 83 amps?

Should an alarm sound?  My neighbor with a Monaco says his raises...
