Question about Toshiba 57H81 57" Rear Projection Television

Can I move this TV on a trailer?

I need to move this TV from one house to another. I'd like to use a trailer rather than a truck because of the height. However, trailers tend to be bouncy and I worry that this could damage the internal components.

Anyone have experience with this or know the proper way to move this TV?

Thanks

You would be best moving it on a truck, vs. a trailer. I know that height is a concern, but this damage due to debris can be minimized by judicious use of refrigerator boxes (see local sears store) to protect it.

Either way, plan on having to realign the screen when you finally get it moved. This is normal. Moving on a trailer just might permanently misalign the screen so that the processor in the tv cannot compensate for it.

UHaul also rents blankets / pads without having to rent anything else as well. You might consider that option.

On the other hand, this tv was likely trucked across America inside a trailer on the back of a semi. But that trailer also had a lot more weight in it as well. Personally, I would move it using a pickup.

So is the trailer park a real place then? An actual trailer park? Can you just move there then and does anyone have the name of the trailer park where it was filmed?


The first 4 seasons were filmed in different trailer parks in Nova Scotia, Canada. The pilot was filmed in Spryfield, Nova Scotia. The first season was filmed in Sackville, the second in Dartmouth, the third in Lakeside, the fourth in Dartmouth again (in a different park than the second). For the Christmas special and season 5 and onward, they have used a park they purchased in Dartmouth.

Cant pickup chanels on TV when doing scan. Have the Flat panel lcd in sundowner trailer and its suppose to be hooked to antenma ontop of the trailer but I can't get any channels even after scanning several...


I would try scanning for channels when tv is hooked up to your house main aerial or a portable aerial. If it does pick up channels, the tv is not at fault but instead your aerial ontop of trailer. If this is the case, check your aerial plug. If the plug is moulded on it may be broken inside, or if it is a fixable plug, check that the outer coax shielding is not touching the centre core inside the plug.

The power lead on truck or trailer are in wrong spot. So it is feeding power to your parking lights all the time. Open plug on trailer and move wire one turn counter clockwise.

Wiring issue on a 1965 Roadrunner Travel Trailer


Generic comments follow:

I'm not real clear on what you are asking ... I can almost guarantee you that you will not find a wiring diagram for your trailer.

Your travel trailer operates on 12 V DC. Your frig, the heater, all the lights, radio, all 12 volts. Your running lights should be getting power from the tow vehicle. While towing, the tow vehicle should be charging the battery. You may find some 110 volt lights inside, but probably not. To keep your battery charged, you have 110 Volt AC power coming in. Your frig may run on 110 V AC but it still needs 12 volts for control. Your Air Cond and Microwave and TV (if equipped) will al,so run on 110.

Regarding the three wires from the battery, there should be a battery charger close by your 12 Volt fuse panel. Even though the trailer is a "vehicle" dont depend on using the frame as a ground like you would in a car. So, that accounts for two of the three - a red or black and a white wire. There may be some dedicated line that the battery supplied to account for the third wire.

There should be a emergency breakaway switch on the front of the trailer. This is a switch with a pull pin. If the trailer breaks away, the pin is pulled out by the tow vehicle and the electric brakes should be automatiocally applied to stop the trailer. This switch should be powered, unfused, directly from the traailer battery and go directly to the electric brakes - presuming you have this feature.

Be aware, this trailer power supply was built and designed for a life style far different from that we enjoy today. If you have a 30 amp cord, as I suspect, 30 amps is enough to charge your battery, run your 12 volt items, run a TV and AC or TV and Micro or Micro and AC but not much else. As you are aware, you have two circuits built with #12 and they are probably protected with a 15 amp breaker though the #12 would be protected with 20 amp breaker in a house. The cord is only rated for 30 amps and it may be tired, unless you have replaced it.

I hope I have provided a little insight to your situation. If I can be of further assistance, please let me know.
