16  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Entry Lock on: August 30, 2016, 09:44:06 pm
My side door entry lock broke this summer.  So I decided to upgrade the old girl a bit with a digital from Amazon.

But be forewarned that as with most of my improvements I have posted, this is not a plug and play as the footprint of this lock assembly is smaller.  This means one needs to make a small plastic bezel to fill the space..  I used a 1/8 " white plastic sheet to do the honors.  See below.

Pax/Mike..  Good trouble shooting as Ron mentioned.  Question: how did you conclude that the rj11/and adapter, was bad?  Was it burned and looked bad, or did you do a ohmmeter test?  If it was a burned appearance, than Ron you may have a point with too much current.

My Xantrex died this last season in Arizona, so upgraded to the new 2000 pure sine wave model.  Not that happy with the first unit, as it tripped GFI's when on shore power, and was very high RFI noise. Being in ham radio, this wasn't a good thing. They sent me another unit, but just installed it and don't know about the GFI problem as of yet.  RFI noise was about the same, but adding some toroide chokes on the 12 volt cables and a 22000MFD capacitor across the 12 volt cables, killed most of the noise. At least made it manageable, radiowise.

BTW... the new 2000 uses the same footprint remote unit, but uses a next size larger RJ45 cable. So I had to pull the old cable out and replace it with the new larger 8 conductor cable. Kind of a pain...

Bruce...  Wherever there is a corner, there will be some wood brace to screw into... You can test the waters with a 1/16" drill just to be sure.  So I have a screw in each end of the angled brace/mounting bracket. The "L" bracket is then screwed to the angle bracket, the table bottom only... Bottom of "L" bracket just rest against the wall for support.

Needed a new larger desk.  Since I'm a woodworker, I was able to design and build a size for my application. You can too if a pattern is given to you maybe friendly woodworker down the street?  Just used 2  large angle L brackets screwed onto 2 inch angle bracket that is fastened to the two wall ends. I even faboracated a Small drawer underneath for pencils and stuff.  Done all in Maple, as that is our PC design.

Since we spend 6 months in our 2350, we always have a problem with shoe, slipper storage in our 2350. Here is our solution that seems to work for Barb and myself.  Only buy a good quality like from Bed & Beyond.

Yes, they probably are very expensive to maintain, and to say nothing about them being unsafe on the road with not much between you and the vehicle that wants to hit you head on.   Just my observation.

Just an alternative...  We changed out our power munger light bulb out to a LED SuperBright. Now don't need motion detectors as this can be left on forever, even when dry camping.   And yes it is bright... Maybe too bright for some commercial campgrounds....

as below... we have had no problems with camping using GAS at even 10,000 feet Plus in Wyoming's Medicine Bow campground. IceCream is HARD!.

but you would think there would be a better way given the technology that exists today.  Push a button:  tire pressure in each tire.   Dip stick:  not much change from my 1940 Dodge. 

Yep, I agree... really a very very long dipStick.  But yes, the V10 ford doesn't use oil, so I just do not pay much attention to it.  Meaning, I don't check the oil lever often, certainly not at every gas fillup.

However, with todays technology, we should deserve a better method of checking oil levels.

Just saying,

Been a Win-Win story with us, Barbara and I, also.   We came from a "Wimpy VW Rialta" that was sufficient, until we started doing REAL mountain climbing.  The Rialta VW  was "WAS" ok, but the transmission did not do well, with a "home" behind it. Getting service on a VW Motorhome is almost impossible here in the states. Therefore we didn't want another "foreign" drive train. We chose the Ford, (where service is almost everywhere, as we travel in remote area's), and PC for their quality. Does this make sense to anyone? It does to us...  Thanks for reading.
