16  Main Forum / General Discussion / Shower head hose connection on: May 13, 2012, 02:04:41 pm
The hose for the shower head attachment is connected to the TOP of the faucet handle base on the shower wall.  This hose is starting to crimp a little from bending downward and I was wondering if it wouldn't be better to turn the faucet handle base completely around so the hose connection comes off the bottom and therefore there would not be a need for the hose to bend. 
I hesitated about asking about this but I thought there might be a reason for the shower hose to be connected this way and didn't want to change it without some inquiring.  Is everyone else's hose connected from the top?  Would it harm anything to turn it with the hose connection coming from the bottom?  Any assistance would be appreciated.

Thank you for the info.  The kids wanted to cook pancakes outdoors on the griddle.  They'll enjoy cooking breakfast and best of all ... their mess will be outdoors  Smile

I was reading an article online earlier this week from a fella that said he plugged an electric grill into the receptacle on the exterior of his motorhome.  The cord got exceptionally hot and the plastic receptacle started to melt and smoke.  He stated further that he had a 2004 Winnebago.  Not knowing what the problem turned out to be and only being able to read the article and not ask any questions it got me thinking.  Would an electric grill or skillet that draws approx. 1500 to 1800 watts be safe to plug into my exterior receptacle? I've regularly used it for the radio or DVD player and TV with no problem.

 I would very much like the possibility of having both seats swivel around for seating.  As you mentioned "the factory installed swivel does not accept power seats", does anyone know if there is any other type of swivel that could be used for a powered driver's seat?   Just luv this forum thanks to everyone for the great ideas !!   ThankYou

Just a little FYI for anyone traveling or living near Western New York.  On Route 20 in Fredonia, N.Y. ( midway between Erie, Pa. and Buffalo, N.Y. ) there is a mattress company called Jamestown Mattress,  716-672-4140. They will make custom sized mattresses and are reasonable in pricing.  I am going there in the near future to have a different mattress made for one of the twin beds in my 2551.  They have approx. 15 styles to choose from.

After winterizing, I put STABIL in my gas tank.  Drive around the block to mix it well in the gas tank and to get it into the gas lines and carb.  When I get home, I run the generator for a half hour to get the gas/STABIL mixture through the gen too.  I also use the BATTERYMINDER for house and engine batteries.  This seems to do the trick in New York State's freezing winter.

Phoenix now provides the same table and legs but instead of the floor plugs they give you two spider legs.  They are are a fold up type pedastal.  Works really nice.

Gosh ... I wonder if these "spider legs" can be used with our present table top that fits the pedastal?  Does anyone know or have pictures of these new type of legs?

Yes, I do have a meter.  105/110 being the lowest point to drop to, then start turning things off ... that's good to know.
Every tidbit of information I can pick up along the way is appreciated and it will help my much needed "RV Electrical Education". Thank you !!!

 I try to be extra careful because I have minimum knowledge when it comes to electric issues.  As always, the folks in this forum have proved to be of great help.  Everyone .... Thanks for all the assistance.
 ThankYou

 2551 Phoenix w/30 amp - I carry a 25 foot 10 gauge extension cord incase I'm at site that needs the extra length to reach the post.  Recently an electrician at an RV park told me I should be using a 25 foot 8 gauge extension cord because of heat and line loss.  I've been checking around and haven't found any available for 30 amp.  It has me wondering if because the RV places don't even carry the 8 gauge maybe what I was told is not right.  Does anyone have any expertise as to what is correct or what is the safest wire gauge to be using for an extension cord for 30 amp service?

This has always been a fun thing for the kids to do, especially on a rainy day in the MH.  They enjoy making their own little cake.  I "try" to remember to bring a can of ready made frosting.  Yes, I admit this is a late night snack for me too.

5 MINUTE CHOCOLATE MUG CAKE
4 tablespoons flour
4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons cocoa
1 egg
3 tablespoons milk
3 tablespoons oil
3 tablespoons chocolate chips (optional)
A small splash of vanilla extract
1 large coffee mug (Micro Safe)

Add dry ingredients to mug, and mix well.  Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
Pour in the milk and oil and mix well.
Add the chocolate chips (if using) and vanilla extract, and mix again.
Put your mug in the microwave and cook for 3 minutes at 1000 watts.
The cake will rise over the top of the mug, but don't be alarmed!
Allow to cool a little, and tip out onto a plate if you'd like.

On Monday, we are heading out from Western New York, going through New England to New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and possibly take the ferry to Newfoundland.  We are planning to be gone about 3 weeks.  We don't really know what to expect. If anyone has been there before I would appreciate any words of wisdom and information.  There seems to always be a list of do s and don't s from past travelers that is worth their weight in gold.
