Different brand but we have a roof mounted unit. Itís nice going down the road when we have the boys with us but coverage in camp is 50/50 at best due to trees etc. We also have a Dish Tailgater for when we donít have coverage and really want it.

If I was going one or other I would stick with Tailgater.

We had an old Wineguard system that I removed from the roof of our Class C. The wires were run from the unit into the vent cover for the fridge on ours.
The wires then ran down the fridge compartment to a switch and the rest of the pieces/parts.

The vent area makes for fairly easy access, but becareful that you get it all covered up well so that you don't introduce new leaks.

Iíve got a few pipe vents on the roof I was thinking about running the wire through, looking to drill as few holes possible. Thanks for posting

The reason I got the wineguard is because Iíve got 2 TVs in the RV and with the wineguard you can watch different channels at the same time. Going to get extra long cord for tailgater

I didn't run this wire through a vent. Got a 1 pc white weatherproof solar photovoltaic plastic bracket curved cable connector to run my cable for my Weboost signal booster. We now stream the TV we watch at most places using our AT&T phones as a hot spot. Had 60 down on Lake Somerville in February but only about 5 or 6 in the bowl that is Brazos Bend SP and still streamed some. A few photos of the install.

Bulkhead penetration




About 2 ft from back wall







Living area and kitchen









Wires behind TV panel



Indoor booster




Setup on back of rig

Hoping someone here can help. I would like to get a folding fillet table with a sink for food prep, outdoor dish washing etc. I need a way to connect it to the sewer drain. I can't find a fitting so I thought I would ask before a buy a straight RV hose coupler and get out the epoxy.

I just took a 5gal bucket and cut a hole in the lid for the drain tube to fit in. Dump it when it gets fullÖ

They make a "Y" fitting that you could hook another sewer hose to at the ground inlet. You'd have to find a way to adapt it to the bottom of your sink, and when not in use it would vent the septic system into your camp...

Thanks guys, got me searching in the right direction. Iím thinking a y fitting and the adapter below that lets me take 3Ē male threads down to the drain hose. Iíll flex the drain hose into a p trap.

That would work but you would have to modify a p-trap to keep the gasses from coming back up.

Continuing down my path of planning for our upcoming trips. Taping up my ducts was on the radar, but I think I will build a diverter box out of foam core as seen below. I stumbled across a premade system, but at $170, that wont work for us.

Grand Design A/C Modification - YouTube

Bob, I built my own and not only did it quieten it down a bit but it blows much harder. Taped all my ducts as well. If you have more than one AC unit, check with GDRV about more than one diverter system. Something about not supposed to have it on all the units due to the race track duct system I believe is what I remember.

I will be heading out to Taylor Park at Granger Lake this weekend camping. Hopefully its not crazy windy so we can get on some crappie. These windy days have made it tough to want to be on the water.

We were at Rock Creek Park on Possum Kingdom for baseball this weekend. It's about the 4th time I've stayed there, and I really like it. It's old school, so not all spots have septic, but they are making improvements quickly. The store is open now, and they will have the pools done in a month or two. Ownership is really nice and accomodating, that's the only place we stay around PK.

Lake Granger is a great place.

It was rough last week on Lake Conroe. There were folks out but not many and they headed into coves for the most part. Sat there Wednesday morning hoping to catch bald eagles fishing but they were going to the calmer side across the lake. I did watch this fly right out in front of me though which was cool. It landed further down. I had 3 eagles land right above me also and had to shoot through a small opening in the trees. It was a good trip.










Watched an eagle go down and catch a fish on the far side of this shot on the right. Too far for a decent photo but tried anyway. More out of the wind here.

Hey Bill.....watch those skylights on your Xplor. I have an 2021 Xplor and i found one of mine cracked, and I'm in the middle of replacing it with an Icon. These things are paper thin! And i found mine was cracked all over once I got it out. The icon is polycarbonate, and 100 time more stout.

Now...if I could just get this sealant off......Any tips?

I dealt with it last July. Fortunately I have kept it under an awning and the cracks didn't allow for any damage. I removed the black with a chisel using it very slowly.


Check this picture gallery out. Skylight replacement

Yup
Mine stays under cover when not hooked up, so no damage. I only noticed it when I took the inside trim off to put a piece of foil to block a full moon light up the place.

Thanks for the pics Bill. Very helpful!!!

We have 2 skylights unfortunately, and I am changing both out. I checked the other one out, and it's cracked too.

Is that eterna bond tape that you put down first? Great idea.

Use a razor knife to cut off what you can without getting into the roof, obviously. Then clean the snot out of it. I canít tell a lot by those pics on my phone, but I feel like the most important part is to eliminate any spots where it could ďdamĒ water anywhere, make it shed water with good materials (eternabond, NP1, or the other self leveling stuff), and build in redundant seals and watersheds.

Iíve had better luck doing it the way I think is right (again with good materials), double sealing everything, and running water away from it. Get everything clean first, for sure.

Manufacturers donít seem to put a lot of long term thought into it.

We are in Fredericksburge several times per year. We love staying in the Ladybird Johnson park.

Also I would advise that you avoid Bending Oaks RV at all cost.

Plan was to stay at Bending Oaks, but we decided to stay closer since we are only going for the weekend. We talked about staying out there for a month later this summer or fall. Thanks for the information. Those were the two parks we look at staying. We also thought about The Buckhorn in Kerrville

We had Flexarmor put on our roof. Decided to do this after the hail cracked both skylights. Our neighbor had a little older trailer. They ended up hail just a little smaller than a baseball go thru their skylight in the shower. With Flexarmor they cover the skylights and added LED light in them. Ended up with a seamless roof with a lifetime warranty. Supposed to help keep the trailer cooler also.

We did some camping last hear with the inlaws in their 5th wheel and did Cagle on lake Conroe once this spring. Wife and I are planning our second tent camp trip to Custer South Dakota in the black hills set for July. 80 degrees for a high and upper 40ís low 50ís at night. Pre-sturgis rally so should be a little more quiet. There is still a good bit we didnt get to see or do last time we were up there.

Beach camping. My daughters and her friends want me to take them camping on the beach with our fifth wheel. So any good spots you know of right on the beach. Also any tips or tricks would be appreciated.

We got back late last night from Jellystone in Canyon Lake. Camper eas amazing we loved having so much more space. Just realized I didnít get one picture of the setup. Headed to Galveston weekend after next.

Couple of tweaks planned- our king bed must be on a queen base because the sides arenít supported. I can only run 2 ac units at a time. Plan to bypass the switch that controls the bedroom units and tie one into the washer/dryer circuit or run itís own line.

Couple of tweaks planned- our king bed must be on a queen base because the sides arenít supported. I can only run 2 ac units at a time. Plan to bypass the switch that controls the bedroom units and tie one into the washer/dryer circuit or run itís own line.

Not a breaker tripping issue. Per keystone forums there is a dumb switch somewhere that only lets power to my rear ac when the bedroom is off because they share a breaker. Iím looking to get them on their own circuits to run at the same time.

No, it's 50 amp. Not sure why Keystone set it up this way. I know if I use the washer circuit I'll have to run the water heater on propane and I could still trip a breaker if they all kick on at once. I would prefer to run a line out and run the rear AC off of a dedicated line to the 20amp 120v receptacle in the pedestal, ideally with a selector switch so I could go back to factory setup if need be. i rarely make things easy.

Done a bit more research and have a plan of attack. I should be able to use the washer or dryer circuit (both 20amp) for the rear ac. Iíll pick which based on keeping only 2 units on one leg of power. Iíll reuse the power management switch so its seamless to still use the washer if need be.
