Hay what the H- -L is wrong with you getting on that roof? You know better. You need to stay off that roof and spend some money to get it done. One fall Old Man and Frankie will be looking for a new boy friend.....

eggzachary! I see *so* many people place their bug zapper close to their RVs. That just draws the bugs TO ya.

Hang it as far away as possible. You want the bugs "over there"!

I use a very tall metal yard-type shepherd's hook for ours. (the kind people use for hanging-basket flowers)

Oh, and expect visits from frogs. Nope not other FR owner people...I mean real frogs. A bug zapper becomes a call to eat for 'em. They sit under the bug light and gorge themselves on fried bugs.

One of the vents in the bunkhouse didnt have any tape on it where the air flows out of the duct and into the vent itself, again letting air just blow into the ceiling. Also in that duct there was a crack in the top about a foot long, looke like it had been stepped on and crushed. I put some foil tape over it and hope it helps. The duct in the bunkhouse was also open at the end so there was nothing to stop the air from just blowing out the end of the duct. I remedied that as well with some foil tape.

Here is a pic of one of the better looking vents I found, notice the gap between the foam vent and ceiling:

Today was "Audio Visual" day and spent the day working on our wireless movie broadcast system with exterior projector and sound system.

Now we can show movies/TV shows or hold classes on any subject using PowerPoint outside.

Should be a hoot at Goshen.

Great! now get some factory reps to present pertinent topics each night. You can charge admission (tuition) for Herk University. or HU. I' want to see your setup. Sounds neat.

Now that is just down right/wrong lazy shoddy work(lack there of) right there.



Glad mine is just a crushed vent hose.

HP i7 Laptop w/17.1 inch screen 750GB HD
3 Terabyte USB Media Drive
HP OfficeJet H470 printer
Visionari 120” Home Theater Projector
Amped Wireless SR300N Smart Repeater
Microsoft Surface RT w/HDMI adapter
Apple iPad and iPhones

The Smart Repeater is the heart of the system and runs the camper's network. It allows all the devices, including smart phones, to talk to each other and share an internet connection if one is available.

The laptop gets the USB drive and serves up movies on demand to the Surface RT which is outside connected to the projector via HDMI. The projectors volume is awesome and you can easily watch movies/project the computer screen with just the speaker in the projector. The Surface can also use a Bluetooth mouse and keyboard (or the media drive/memory stick directly) via its own USB port.

Herk, FWIW, this is an English speaking forum, please refrain from speaking "Greek" as this is all "Greek" to me.

Us "Poor dumb civilians" just don't understand geek talk.
