  1. Good point about editing P28 to match your generator. With the same generator and lithium setup we only ran the generator once in 10 days on our last trip. Rather than editing that variable, I made sure nothing was running and was able to charge from 55% to 95% in about 95 minutes of run time.
  2. I recently dove into this thinking I had a problem with the wiring to the camera. To find the junction you are looking for, I had to remove the hard divider by unscrewing the 2 lag screws. My insulation pulled down easy and went back in place just as easy. As it turned out for me, my antenna had fallen off and I had no real problem. But, the dogwood beside my parking space did! It’s much stubbier now.
  3. On the qualitative scale, our 3000 is “noticeable” but I don’t think about it until it shuts off.
  4. I just called a random gas station in Guntersville. They said “We still have 93 but will be out soon”. Based on that, we are not going to make the trip.
  5. How do we know it’s raining? We just call the dog in and see if he’s wet.
  6. Ha! I finally get to contribute. I have no idea how much these cost as my sis-in-law makes these. But, I'm sure they are under the $20 limit by at least $19.50. The secret is the type of thread. I assume it's some type of polyester but it makes a great scrub pad. This scrub pad has become the center of my wife's dishwashing system. First, she goes for a walk. While she's gone, I use a paper towel to scrape any loose stuff off the dishes. Then, I simply put a dot of Dawn Liquid Soap on the pad as shown and scrub each dish. I scrub then sort/stack the soapy dishes in the sink by size; largest on the bottom silverware on top. As I'm washing, I frequently rinse the scrub pad and re-apply a dot of Dawn. Rinsing is done in groups over the other dishes and scrubbing with a clean pad. In other words, I rinse the silverware in one bundle of running water, the saucers, plates then any cookware last. This saves lots of water and of course uses very little soap. The pad is loosely woven and the "thread" doesn't hold water or food debris like a sponge. It washes clean with very little water. This was one of the first she did - she since added a loop at my request. I think they are crocheted? I'll try to get the name of the hairy thread material. My wife really enjoys this because when she gets back from her walk, the dishes are clean, dried and put away. Dave
  7. Welcome to Tennessee! Hope you can get back soon. And most of all, congratulations on your new Oliver.
  8. Welcome! We Tennesseans really need to recruit harder. The Texans are outnumbering us! Enjoy you new life in your new Ollie! Also, if you’ve been following the forum, you realize it’s a great place to learn and get answers. By the way, worked closely with a lot of folks @ TDEC so I’m sure we know a lot of the same people.
  9. Just saw Duane Betts and Devon Allman at the Ryman . Duane is his fathers clone lick for lick. It was a great concert.
  10. Similar enough issue that I thought I'd add to this thread. We got stuck inside this week with big storms and streamed a series over our phone from Netflix. With about 2 minutes left in each episode, the sound completely stops. If you let it run, it starts back at the next episode. Remembering this thread, I played the sound thru the head unit and noticed it cut out when there was no speaking. All of this to say you're on the right track with the conversion of the signal from digital to analog being the problem. Any deeper than that and I have no clue
  11. I think raising the front is a must; not excessively but just a bit higher. Then, second most important item for us is a clear elbow in the line so we can do the dump/flush/dump sequence until the water is clear. For daily treatment, we use some calgon and borax in the tanks. Finally, it does take patience to make sure everything is drained. After the first couple of times, we have had no issues
  12. Thanks! I did NOT know about the motorcraft site! That’s great info.
  13. My scanner came in yesterday! Tomorrow, I’ll be braving the weather to start downloading backups of the modules. My main purpose is to toggle the dash power points to “on”.
  14. If you want chain motels, 2 possibilities exist 45 to 50 minutes away: I-40 exit 172 in Dickson, TN I-65 exit 46 outside Columbia, TN For those coming from the west, a cornucopia of chain hotels exist in Jackson, TN (I-40 exit 80). It's possible to get to Hohenwald in 90 minutes from Jackson (i.e. the morning of your visit).
  15. Shoot! I just spent 4 days in Nederland. Wish I could have helped you.
  16. This came in today. Love it! Puts off enough heat for 4 appropriately distanced people. The only downside is that it's something else to put in the truck.
  17. After being out on 2 cooler weather trips now, we see the advantage of a portable propane fire bowl! We went to order one and this amazon deal came up - $40 off the regular price! Several folks have posted they have them and it's been on our (well, mine) list for a while. FYI if you are interested. Dave
  18. A great big howdy from west of Nashville! Welcome.
  19. https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/thor-announces-acquisition-of-luxury-rv-manufacturer-tiffin-motorhomes-301196360.html Interesting and totally unexpected news in the world of mega-rv.
