  1. Thanks, I have decided to stick with RV awnings.
  2. Thank you all for the replies! I bought Flexible 12AWG at Lowe's and am going to attempt.... Famous last words: "how bad can it be?" -MattNY
  3. Thanks. I wondered about using a 12 GA extension cord wire - since it's flexible. If I could see the wire that was ran (at the factory) I would copy it/use the same chase. But lo, I can not - I can only see where it comes out of the floor.
  4. Has anyone added 120 volt electric to RV slides? I need more outlets (on a separate circuit) Ideas?

  6. I have a question regarding file size when posting photos of my Motorhome for sale. Last year I had quite a few photos on this site selling this same Motorhome. The same files at that time worked fine. Now it is telling me the max file size is 128kb. I re-sized all my images down to less than that and it will still only take one photo. What gives?

  8. I have the Rand McNally RND 7725. I have not been too impressed with it to be honest. They have a website where you can map out your trip and send it to your GPS (after jumping through hoops). I don't find that too user-friendly. For example, when you are on the online map (http://trips.goodsamclub.com) - if you want to travel around a city instead of through it, you have to drag the route to the route you want... The problem is it adds a "waypoint" to your route and the GPS thinks it is a destination. If you aren't careful, that waypoint could end up in someone's back yard and the GPS will take you there. You have to zoom in as close as you can (before you import to your GPS) and make sure the waypoint is actually still on your route. I have called the "help" desk, who offered no help except to say how to drag the route (duh). Also, the touch screen is not as responsive as I would like (I am so used to the iPad and iPhone touch screens). And now of course after the warranty expired, it will not stay plugged in - (There is a loose connection at the point where it plugs in). Again, "Help" desk, no help. I am considering others now and reading reviews on them, which led me to this thread... Good luck and safe travels! Matt
  9. Thank you, we will try the sizing... I really don't want to dole out for new blinds just yet. Matt
  10. Hmm.. I wondered that actually. Have you tried it? I would be concerned that being wet, they would stick together?? Thanks, Matt
  11. First of all, I do not believe it is a "string"problem... We have a problem raising the Night part of our day/night shades. This has been an issue since we bought the Motorhome (used). The "day" shades go up and down nicely, the night shades go down ok, but do not stay "pleated" as they go up! We are constantly having to manually "fix" many of the pleats to make it go up. By fixing, I mean pulling them from both sides to straightened them. They are Day/Night shades. The "Day" shades are a soft cloth (semi-transparent) and the "Night" shades are a darker, paper-like material. Anyone have this issue? And can anyone give me any suggestions? I hate to buy new ones as they are not cheap. Thank you in advance, Matt
