CampLite Travel Trailers / King OmniPro Antenna
« on: July 23, 2020, 02:09:55 PM »
I have a 2018 21RBS trailer.  The antenna has not worked since I got the trailer.  It hasn't bothered me as the outside cable connection appears to work and it is rare for us to use over the air signals.

However I wonder if anyone out there knows anything about how the antenna should work and what connections should be in place to make it work.

Here is what I have determined...

There is a grey coax connected to the Cable port on the back of King wall mount power injector which seems to match with the external coax-in port on the outside of the trailer as well as the coax port for an external TV.  So I assume the grey coax is for cable reception and that all appears to work fine when connected to a cable service at a camp ground.

In the ceiling behind the King Wall Mount Power Injector there are 2 coax cables laying in the ceiling, One white one and One black one.  Does anyone know what the difference of black or white means and I am guessing that one of them goes to the antenna but which one?

When I connect the black to the antenna port on the plate and depress the power button on the plate, run the scan on the TV, I get NO channels found.

When I connect the white coax to the antenna port on the back of the plate, press the power button the LED lights up for a second and immediately goes out.  (Not sure why this happens, anyone want to guess?). Clearly with no power to the plate I get NO channels found as well when I scan on the TV.

I called King for support and they said who knows what might be going on as they wouldn't know if it was installed properly in the first place!  That is, they were NO HELP!

I am hopeful someone out there may have an idea of what to might be going on.

Should I order a new wall plate?

CampLite Travel Trailers / What does EGS mean?
« on: July 03, 2019, 08:07:11 PM »
Anyone know what EGS as it relates to the aluminum framing on a travel trailer from Livin Lite might mean?

I have a drawing from Livin Lite of the back wall of my 21RBS travel trailer.  At the bottom of the drawing it shows studs with cross hatching and it says EGS Flush This Side but I have no idea what EGS might mean?

Thanks for your help in advance.

CampLite Travel Trailers / Back Wall Sub Frame or Studs?
« on: June 04, 2019, 04:14:40 PM »
Is there anyone out there that might know any measurements from the left side wall across the back wall to drill a hole to attach a Exterior RV ladder?

I am looking to add a Stromberg Carlson ladder to the back wall of my 21RBS trailer.  My preference would be to install it on the drivers side of the back wall.

The installation instructions I have found online require the ladder to be attached to the Trailer Blocking or Sub Frame.  My assumption is that the exterior skin of the trailer is attached to some framing of some sort.  I wonder if anyone knows what the layout of the framing might be so I can drill successfully into the framing to add the ladder.  That is, are the Joists of the framing (if you will) on 12 or 16 inch centers for example?

If anyone has done this addition please send my pictures of the final install.

Thanks Rod

Any thoughts or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

CampLite Travel Trailers / Dometic 2 way Fridge operation???
« on: April 02, 2018, 05:26:14 PM »
Please chime in with some advice for how the 2 way fridge works.

The manual says that pushing in the Gas button tells the fridge to select either A/C or gas and will pick A/C over gas as a priority.

If the propane tanks are turned off will a check light come on if the gas button is pressed in?

We are trying to cool the fridge down before our trip tomorrow and we have turned the Fridge ON, we have pressed the Gas button in and I have turned the propane tanks open.  The Auto light is illuminated which makes me think all is fine.

I believe the fridge should select A/C but to be honest I am not sure?  To be clear, I have the unit plugged into an extension cord plugged into the house and attached to the 30 AMP power cord connected to the trailer.  The light on the 30 AMP cable shows a blue light so I am sure power is going to the trailer.

If I close the propane tanks I believe a Check light comes on and I don't think the fridge will cool down.  I can reset the check light when this happens by turning the fridge OFF and then ON but will it run off the A/C only or will it still try to find a propane source?

There isn't any 800 number for Dometic I can find otherwise I'd call them for help.

Thanks for any input anyone can pass on.

CampLite Travel Trailers / Stove Hood Fan
« on: March 26, 2018, 03:22:43 PM »
We just got back from a shake down trip with our new 2018 21RBS.

There isn't a hood fan above the 2 burner stove so the smoke detector went off a lot because it sensed heat while cooking.

Right above the stove is a convection/microwave oven that is awesome but I wished there was an integrated hood fan.

Has anyone got any ideas about how to add a hood fan above the stove and below the Microwave unit without compromising the side wall of the trailer

CampLite Travel Trailers / TV Antenna 2018 21RBS Troubleshooting
« on: March 21, 2018, 08:41:37 PM »
I have run the AutoScan on the TV in our unit a number of times and it comes back with 0 channels found each time.

Our previous RV had an antenna that used to pick up a number of channels when the scan was run and both units were parked in the same place in front of the house so I am pretty sure it isn't a weak signal issue.

The connection in the ceiling outlet has a tiny push button to turn the antenna on/off.  There is a small led light that turns on green for less than a second when I push the switch on/off but the light doesn't stay on.  The coax connection from the outlet to the TV seems tight on both ends.  I haven't checked if there is an issue on the roof of the trailer but I assume with it being a brand new trailer all is good there as well.

Anyone know what the brand is of the Antenna?  Has anyone experienced a similar issue with their TV not finding any over the air scans for channels?

We are going for our first trip to test out the unit at which point I expect to be able to connect to a cable connection at the site so hopefully a connected cable scan is going to work fine, if not then I obviously have a different problem.

Any input or advice would be helpful in the meantime.

Thanks Rod

Getting our new unit ready for some camping today.

Turned on the accent lights on the interior and also the switch for the rope light underneath the awning and outside speakers.

We hear the sound of a fan running coming from down by the electrical control box by the floor in the kitchen.

Does anyone know what is making this sound and is it something we need to be concerned with?

It appears to happen only when the rope light switch is turned on but I can't be positive.  That is when I turned that switch off the fan sound appears to go away.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

CampLite Travel Trailers / Shower curtain solutions
« on: January 29, 2018, 02:33:43 PM »
So I am wondering if anyone has come up with a good solution for hanging the shower curtain so it doesn't hang outside the shower enclosure.  It appears that the curtain delivered with our new 21RBS has a flimsy feel to it and it looks like it barely stays inside the enclosure.

I was thinking about putting Velcro on the bottom hem and having sticky Velcro at the bottom of the shower enclosure to attach to but I think that could get messy over time.  Another option I guess would be to get a new curtain (more industrial strength) but I still wonder if it would blow out the bottom rim which doesn't seem to be very deep.

Has anyone installed a sliding plexiglass shower door if there is one available?

Hi everyone,

We just bought our new 2018 21RBS and can't wait to get it on the road.

The unit came with a 9" Vortex Fan in the living space.  The on/off switch seems defective and the fan starts all by itself.  Livin' Lite sent me a new switch to install but I haven't done that yet.

I would like to replace the Vortex fan with a FanTastic fan.

Has anyone done that and if so please let me know what challenges I might encounter.

I was hoping I could simply replace the fan motors and not have to remove the original housing from the Vortex fan.  I'd like not to have to open up the roof seal on the current fan.  Any suggestions?

Thanks Rod
