  1. Checking back to see if anyone has found a new resource for front coach curved windows for 87 Sunrader? I assume all Sunraders use the same plastic windows? Iflyfishthruaglassdarkly
  2. I started another thread on macerators and it has evolved into a discussion of toilet paper. I once did the experiment you will see below using different toilet paper, including "rv" toilet paper. The best in my experiment was Angel Soft, the cheapest paper readily available. Here are the results of someone else's experiment. Enjoy! Iflyfishwithangelsoft
  3. 87 Sunrader Backup Camera

    Great idea! I have been looking at inexpensive wireless license plate camera/rear view mirror systems. I wonder how I might attach a camera to the INSIDE of my rear window. Any ideas? Iflyfishbackingup
  4. Oxidation of fiberglass on Sunrader

    Great discussion! Appreciate all the thinking here. Is this the ZEP? https://www.amazon.com/Zep-Commercial-1044898-Polish-Bottle/dp/B0057PFLMA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1517093459&sr=8-1&keywords=zep+floor+wax
  5. The fiberglass on my rig is oxidized and I am interested in cleaning/polishing it. Any experiences, ideas of how to do this? Products? Thanks, Iflyfishwithelbowgrease

    Thanks, never thought about this. Iflyfish
  8. Solar

    I am considering solar this spring. I think 100 watts would work for me. What do you think about this unit? Is there a way to attach it without putting holes in the roof? https://www.amazon.com/HQST-Polycrystalline-Off-Grid-Controller-Mounting/dp/B01FRKA7O6/ref=sr_1_7_m?s=lawn-garden&rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1516825599&sr=1-7&keywords=rv+solar+panel+kit&refinements=p_85%3A2470955011%2Cp_72%3A2661618011 Thanks, Iflyfishelectronically
  9. WiFi on the Road update

    Verizon does have the best coverage, hands down. This is such a cheap option and I already have an AT%T Plan and they gave me the device for free ($99) and waived the activation fee ($45) as I have had an account for many years. Too good to pass up and wifi available by other means if needed. Cost to me is $20/month.
  10. I have been exploring wifi on the road this last year. Man is this complex! I happened to run into this device AT&T ZTE Mobley https://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=at%26t+zte+mobley+review There is an adaptor for 12 volt and 110 volt https://www.amazon.com/PeraltaProducts-Adapter-Mobley-Hotspot-Device/dp/B07173G1MK/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1516238092&sr=8-4&keywords=AT%26T+ZTE+Mobley This one blew my mind, or what was left of it. It is a device designed to plug into your CAR engine computer read out port. It connects to AT%T cell tower and provides you with WiFI via the tower. However people have developed adaptors that allow you to plug it into a cigarette lighter or 110 outlet. AT%T are not advertising this much as I don't think that they understand that there is a HUGE RV market for a device like this. Here is the kicker.....$20/month! Yup, you read that right. The device is free with a 2 year plan and there is a $45 activation fee. The device is $99 via AT%T or between that and $150 on ebay. So, get to camp, plug in the device, turn on your computer, link it to the Mobley and surf to you hearts content. Use this with a computer and TV monitor with Blue Ray and you can watch anything you can get on your computer, Netflix etc. and you are good to go with no wires! I don't know if anyone here has done this. I just signed up and the device is on it's way to my home. I will fire it off after I return from Mexico and let you know how it works. In the mean time if anyone has this and has used it I would be happy to hear of you experience. Iflyfishontheweb
  11. 87 Sunrader Backup Camera

    Thanks for the great feedback and ideas! Really appreciate this group.
  12. The straight poop on Macerators

    That''s the one I had on my Winnebago View. It worked great. Had to replace the impeller once. but other than that, worked great. The price is about $100 less than I paid for it. Be sure and rinse it so you don't have buildup on the impeller. I used Angel Soft toilet tissue. I did an experiment and that broke down better than other brands and it is way cheaper than RV tp.
  13. Been looking at wireless backup cameras with rear view mirror monitor. Man have they become cheap! Lots to choose from. Question #1: Any recommendations? Question #2: My license plate is on the left side of the rig, beside the factory rear storage box. How will this effect the view from the camera? I see they are attached to center mounted license plates. Ideas? Thanks, Iflyfishlookingovermyshoulder
  14. I am considering buying a canvas car port for out Sunrader. It has an AC on the roof. Anyone purchased one of these? What is height/width of the Sunrader. Suggestions? Thanks
