A fall trip to the smokie mtn. Area has always been a tradition for the first outing with a new unit.
We finally were able to find time to take our new BH3685 for the first camp out.
Could not get very good pictures, but here are a few.40516

yes, it was river plantation. We saw several Heartland's there, but never saw anyone outdoors. Small world!

Thanks Byrd! Pulled great. We spent most of our trip working on things like finding a rug (no luck yet), spraying foam insulation, working on getting cable TV working(still no luck there), find a door stop solution for a couple of doors that won't stay in the open position. Just small things. I guess Wayne will say the tv is a BIG THING, LOL and learning to use convection oven. We are thinking the cable splitter in the L/R may be bad.
I think we went to Home Depot and lowes more than anywhere else.

Check the plate in the bedroom . . . this is where we found the fault in our cable issue!

Just sayin' . . .

Odd thing is that the bedroom TV has a great picture, it must be coming in somewhere not having to do with the living room TV. But THANKS for the suggestion! We are hoping many more chime in until we find the fix.

We had perfect over the air antenna TV to the bedroom, but no cable.

Off of the same input!

On my BH there are two outlets in the living room. One is for the satellite receiver and the other is for both the over the air antenna or cable, whichever you are using at the time. You might try swapping them if you haven't already done so. . . run the cable directly to the TV and not through any intermediary sound system or dvd player if it is so connected.

We had TV to the living room in our BH, but no bedroom TV. Dealer couldn't find problem, but I tried switching the cable connector at the box in the bedroom closet and VOILA! we now have TV in both rooms. I am definitely no techie, but you might want to try that if you have not already.

We unhooked everything from the splitters and the bedroom TV still had reception, so it has to be coming in from another source. We did find that it does split behind the udc so imfeel sure that is why the bedroom is not involved.

as for the livingroom, when we bypass the splitter, which we assume goes to the outside entertainment system and go directly to the l/r TV, we get a good picture, has to be the splitter.

Our issue turned out to be in the wall plug in the bedroom ceiling!

Door Stop solution - went to a hardware store and got door stops that have magnets. They are hard to find but if you keep looking, you can find them. The magnets are so strong that we leave the bedroom door open and it doesn't move while traveling.
Hope to see ya'll at the KY rally.

We have that type of door stop on the bedroom, but the laundry door open up to the entry/exit door. We have q very limited spot to attach any door stops. We are still on the wait list for MY rally, not heard anything so it didn't look good thus far.

Anita - email Ken. I think there is someone else who couldn't get into the rally campground but went down the street to another campground. I don't know who it is or which campground but that might be an option. Also don't know what Valerie and Malcolm might be doing as far as coming. Their camper might be out of commission since the accident. He has posted on the TN rally site that they might stay in a cabin instead of the camper.

Anita (and Wayne) - congrats on getting out with the new BH!

If you make it to the KY or TN rallies - I'll figure out your TV wiring issue. I'm pretty good at that. But sounds like the splitter like you said.

We went to the Home Depot in Cheyenne, Wyoming while camping on the 4th of July Weekend 2015 and found the magnetic door stop thingies . . .

It is awesome, although I'd like to find one a little longer as the current one holds the door too close to the wall and doesn't allow air flow from the open window that is behind the door!

That being said, the magnet is strong enough that we leave the door open and stuck to the magnet while on the road.

I'll take photos if anyone wants them . . .

Back to the Smokies. We are headed up there next week. Have the leaves started to turn?

I don't know about the Smokies, but out here in the western US the fall colors are at their peak!

Took these from the steps of our camper at our campsite at the Colorado HOC 2015 Fall Rally in Central City, CO last weekend . . .

We are going to our favorite camping spot next weekend near Gunnison, Colorado to finish out our 2015 camping season, and the fall colors are supposed to be peaking there that weekend!

I'll let you know with photos!

The photo below in my sig line is where we are going next week!

We saw some color, not a huge amount, should be better in a week or so. A place we enjoyed one evening was the island for a relaxing stroll. Don't let the full parking lot detour you, just ride the trolley right from your car/truck into the middle of all the fun. We like going in the evening for the fountain lights.
