Digital TVs have a reception threshold. The lower the threshold then lower signals accepted that might be dropped or pixelated by higher threshold sets. I have swapped three sets to the same antenna to discover this. one set would show stations that others would not. I checked the specs on sets and the threshold ranges differed.


The threshold is seen when the picture pixelates and then drops out. Amplify the signal more, find stronger stations, anything to put the signal back inside the signal threshold. If the station is on the threshold a directional antenna aimed to improve the signal is one solution but then that antenna also blocks signals at the back of the antenna so you might miss other stations that way. I got tired of resetting stations, or entering more, while moving the antenna. Now with the omnidirectional antenna I simply turn set on, let it find stations, and then watch TV. no hunting, re-entering stations and playing with the TV at all. I know I'm watching all the stations I can get from every direction without all the fuss. If I can't get enuff channels I read a book. Edited to add: LOL!

I love that these older ones are popping up more and more these days! It's a 17 1/2' SB, either 1976, 77, or early 78. I'll need a VIN to know for sure. Does the main wardrobe closet still have the paper on the wall?

The VIN is probably six digits, but it could be 5.

Almost fully tested

Well we have our T-2199 all cleaned up and I went through testing everything after installing a new battery and full propane tanks.
Fresh water tank filled with no leaks
Water pump works great
Water heater light right up on propane
Fridge light right up and is chilling good on propane
Stove and oven both work
Probably check the furnace tomorrow just to make sure it doesn't burn the house down😬
Guess we are just about ready for our first short voyage😁

Replaced the G4 base LED's with newer brighter ones that was easy rebuilding the door was not. The bottom was rotted out common problem on any RV. I have done several but the sunlineline door was the first one that had metal in it. 3 sides, top bottom and one side were wooden the door lock side was metal with the latch pins through the "U" shaped metal side. It was full length and fit over the wooden pieces. The dead bolt and the door handle were inside a wooden block bored out to fit the assembles it was fastened to the metal channel. Naturally all the wood was stapled together and all of the aluminum border was screwed to the wood. The wood was replaced with pressure treated ripped to size. When I reassembled it I drilled through the aluminum and used long cabinet screws to hold the thing together much better that staples. Once it was back on the camper it was stiff enough that the dang thing would not latch so I had to readjust the strike. I went to a ham radio event first week in May and my wife and I just got back from Bar Harbor so were are off to a good start for the season.

I installed the JR Products flexible rain gutter spouts yesterday and it's pouring this morning. Got tired of watching the water running on top of the windows on the front sides and the marker lights on the rear sides......

John,

Those gutter spouts are a good add. Anything to divert water from beating on a seam is a good thing.

Thanks

John

I towed my new-to-me 1982 1550 home two weeks ago now. My 2014 Subaru Outback had zero issues towing it from NY to MA. I've been sleeping in it nightly and slowly moving in all my stuff and setting everything up. Love my new home!

Today I successfully dewinterized the water system and hooked it up to the house water (after realizing how long it takes to fill the fresh water tank). Have to fix the water heater but I'm in no hurry to do that.

How can I tell when my grey tank is full?

Installed a strip of LEDs in my dark little "wardrobe" -- battery operated with motion sensor so it turns on when I open it.

Soon to come: covering cushions in dinette, removing valances, and making new curtains. (They're all in great shape but giving it my own style. Don't worry, I'll be saving all the original!

Temporary location.

When the water backs up into your shower drain.

Congratulations on your new camper!

Thanks for the pics Falcao

Yup, me too... But the shower back up is about the only way to know on the gray tank if your tank sensors do not work or you do not have any. The black tank, you can push the flush pedal and look with a flash light.

Thanks for the pics Falcao

I was very excited to see the condition of the awning when I opened it upon returning home. Just needed to wash a bit of dirt off the underside. There are only a few of those very tiny holes near where it attaches to the trailer that I've read about elsewhere on this forum how to fix. Oh and I've got to figure out a way to get the little decorative edge that hangs down to uncurl... I suppose either a few little weights hung from it might work and maybe a little heat from a hair dryer? But I don't want to ruin something that's already just fine.

Wow, scrubbed the rock guard clean today. Had no idea it could look this good!
Thoroughly cleaned two sides today. Vacuumed off the screens and they look perfect -- so glad I read up in some other threads about what a pain it can be to remove them. Vacuuming worked absolutely great. Shined up most of the window trim with steel wool. Front windows need more elbow grease and I've run out for today.

That rock guard does look awesome! They are such a crown jewel on these trailers, yet they can look rough so easily! It doesn't look like your trailer has had much sun over the years.

If there's still dirt in the fiberglass, I've heard you can use a grill brush to really scrub it, just be careful around the decals because it'll definitely destroy those. Throw some wax on it when you're done and that should help keep it looking good for a while!

A previous owner decided to rewire the lights and replace the light housings. He would just stick the ground wire (white) into the hole in the sheet metal and hope the screw made contact with it. I'm re-grounding all of those, and I ran the ground through the 7-pin connector. He had the ground connected to the brake pin, and then he ran a seperate ground wire to the chassis of the tow vehicle. I had a water leak, and traced it back to the water heater. It seems that his wiring job was a little sloppy and he decided to screw a wire management bracket to the bottom of the floor of the trailer... right up through the water heater tank. I don't have time or money to deal with it at the moment, so I just bypassed it. I installed a gas bottle for the first time and made sure the range worked. I still need to soap the lines to check for leaks. I locked the tank down, and strapped the battery in place. I screwed a magnet onto the exterior door to hold the screen door, and I'm strapping the door open with a dog collar. The awning adjustment screw was tapping a window so I just zip-tied it down. I'm going to be towing the trailer about 6000 miles next month, but it will just be staying in Wal-Marts, so I won't need the awning.
