Hi, a friend of mine gave me a propane refrigerator and TV set out of his old motor home. I was able to light the pilot on the refrigerator and it works fine. However, there is a little trouble with the reception on the TV. I have hooked the propane and I can get a “good” blue flame on the pilot light but when I attempt to turn up the burner the TV has poor reception and there is a lot of snow. I am just using the little 2 foot long V shaped antenna that came with the TV. Do I need to get a larger antenna or maybe a satellite dish? thanks,

I think your flue needs cleaning. Really needs cleaning. Badly.

Make sure the franjus valve is turned all the way open then back off one-quarter turn..also put a volt meter on the primary output cable making sure you are generating the necessary 1.21 gigawatts needed to synchronize the flux capacitor to the proper date. Run er up to 88 Mph and have some fun.

308wood... Dude... check your serial plate on the TV.. If it says PPG, Then your all right and may just need the TV serviced.. If it says Nat on it then the Guy sold you a Natural Gas TV. You can get a PPG conversion for it, Any PPG dealer should stock them. Good Luck !

Mine works on charcoal. Have to be real careful not to use to much lighter fluid as the extra flames tend to cause a lot of snow on the screen. The only real problem I have with it is that it just takes too long to get it going. If forget to fire it up on time, the game is half over by the time the coals get hot. Maybe I should upgrade to the propane model like 308woody.
