    Re: Project LM 365

    Edit: 5/24/16
    Update on Wilson cell phone booster.
    I've had a challenging week with this booster. I had it working good for a few days with the RG6 coax running straight from the outdoor antenna in through the window to the booster. Then I decided try running it through the factory coax in the coach. I tried this and tried that nothing was working. So I gave up and ran it back through the window like it was. Still nothing.... "Panic set in" We are here 4 more days... our business runs from my phone !!!
    I called Wilson from phone on my pickup booster. Patric from Wilson customer service was awesome. Although we can't fix my We-boost booster He is sending me a new booster, a new Outside antenna, and 50' of RG11 cable, all for free. I'm not sure if it's still under warranty or not. He didn't even ask how long I've had it.
    Thanks Wilson Antenna's
    Well to survive the rest of the week here and get some sleep at night (With our business my phone runs 24 hours a day 7 days a week) and the Trucks start about 1:00 am in the morning and some days that's when my calls start and some days go smooth and with no call all morning, You never know. Bottom line I have to have a phone signal.

    I ended up removing the 3G booster out of my pickup and draping it from my pin-box to the basement then into my window of the bed room. Not my best installation job. LOL But Its working !!!!

    Edit: 5/22/16
    I was not able to get a signal with the darn thing on the roof. It kept red lighting I think it was because the indoor antenna was in between the out side antenna and the cell tower. I finally removed the outside antenna from the roof and put it in a tree on the opposite side of our trailer and now it's working 100%. I went from 0% to 100% It has been a frustrating struggle but all is well again, just wish this was easier.


    Edit on this Mod 5/20/2016
    I'm still having trouble getting this to work properly running through the factory OTA TV antenna coax. (When I'm in a area with very poor cell tower reception). If I run a coax cable directly from booster antenna to the booster it works fine. So I guess I'm loosing to much signal running through the 2 diplexers and the antenna / cable switch. "Red light on or off"
    My next test will be to bypass the that Cable/TV antenna switch and see if I can get some better results. I'll keep you posted

    Another Mod.
    With our trucking business we run 7 days a week 365 days a year and it's all ran through my cel phone. So a cel signal is a must, and we have to plan our trips to places I can get Cel service. I have several different Wilson Cel boosters in all of my vehicles and some work better then ethers. I have a portable 27db unit that gets me buy and a 50db 3G unit in my pickup that works very well... Then I bought a 50db 4G union for my jeep and it just did ok. They say the jeeps are hard to get a barrier between the inner and outer antennas.
    So back to the Mod... I bought a 60db 4G home unit and modified and mounted the outdoor antenna to my crank up TV antenna. This booster antenna is directional so you need to find the tower (with an app on my phone) and point it that direction. So the crank up antenna works perfect for that. This unit also uses coaxial cable so I just used the cable already in the unit. I still need to get the splitters so I can run the TV and the booster through the 1 cable. I then mounted the indoor booster and desk tower in the entertainment center. And we are in business..

    Next Mod.
    Out door TV..
    Our coach did not have the outdoor TV. which was a good thing, because I installed my own and a long pull out arm 24" I think, and a Bluetooth sound bar. So I now can play my Pandora inside and outside. I also put down a felt pad on the bottom of the compartment to save the remotes from ware and tare. So now I'm able to turn the TV anywhere it want to sit and be able to see the game from the BBQ. WHO COULD ASK FOR MORE.?

    Re: Project LM 365

    A convenient Mod.
    I have 1 satellite dish and one DVD player and with the "IOGEAR" Wireless HDMI boxes I can play Sat, DVD, or 3 more components into the main box and send them wirelessly to the ether TV's and with the exterior eyes you can run the inside components from outside to change channels or play and pause the DVD. It works fairly well but sometimes it can be a bit frustrating trying to make it all work. I must me getting old.

    Also had to go with the Harmony remote to make life easier inside. It will turn on the TV, dish box, IOGEAR box, and the sound bar all with 1 button and 1 button to turn them all off.

    Jess,

    what at tv mount is that make and model. I want to mount one in the basement of my Bighorn, also did you do anything special on the mounting bracket or just screwed into the back panel? Was not sure about the weight of TV.

    thanks

    The back panel on my TV cabinet is steel so I had a good base to hang it on.

    Simple Mod...
    I found a battery operated motion sensor LED light strip for inside of the system control panel. Works like a charm..

    Re: Project LM 365

    Update 8/13/16

    A Update on my solar system with the residential fridge.
    I took my Rig to the dealer to replace 4 of the slide seals. (The inner seals had paint all over them from when we painted my slides)
    I dropped it off Wednesday morning and turned on the small Invertor. They pulled it around to the shady side of the building and that's where it sat for 2 days with the fridge running on invertor power, from the 4-12V batteries.
    I went over Thursday morning to check on it at about 10am and the batteries were at 100%, then today I went to pick it up at 7:45am it was at 67%
    Really happy with my set up.....





    I finally found the time to finish my battery project. I redid the box and all of the cables. Also redid the main ground to the chassis. Heartland had a self tapping screw and a star washer onto a fully pained surface..

    This is Heartlands ground connection from the batteries to the frame. "That's It"


    Jerrod's ground




    Before (my first in a hurry version)



    My do it right version




    My $33.00 from Amazon 16ton crimping tool.



    Done



    I had to slightly modify the box to squeeze it in there



    I still have about 5" to 6" behind the box, hoping the disc brake control unit will fit back there. I could trim the front of the box and get another inch out of it.

    That is some Craftsmanship. I really like the crimper and 33 bucks to boot. Nice. Did you use a buss bar to put all of the extra cables in the were in one of your prior photos before you cleaned them up?
