RE: Gulf Stream Ameri lite 199dd

We have been driving a Gulf Stream product for several years now, and have always been well pleased with the quality. Over the years we have found a few small things, like the water heater was almost impossible to replace, but generally it seems to be a well built, quality vehicle. Other than that, I know nothing about the towables.

If you haven't seen our National Parks yet, better learn to speak Chinese.

RE: getting a tv with a sensitive tuner

Does sound like it is getting a bit away from the original question. I agree with calling Cruchfield, they might be able to help. But probably, going to Walmart and getting one is about the easiest way, depending on how far you need to travel. If the one you get doesn't do what you want, try another. It cost nothing except your time to return and replace with a different brand. But, as someone has said, your antenna is very direction sensitive, but in some cases, a direct line does not produce the best signal. Use your SensarPro to find the best direction for the channels you want. We were at one location with 3 different channels, and each was in a different direction. Had to rotate every time we changed channels.

RE: getting a tv with a sensitive tuner

Sounds like you have about the best to start with, and like you, I have no knowledge of any way to find out about the tuners, except to try one. Like said, we have a Visio ond a Samsung, both appear to be about the same.

RE: getting a tv with a sensitive tuner

Best to be sure you have a good signal. Upgrade to a Winegard Sensar antenna, and a sensar Pro power supply/booster for the best. This combination will insure your best reception regardless of the TV. However, I have had great success with Visio or Samsung TVs from Walmart, and if it doesn't work well for you, they can be easily returned to the store. If you get one, test it our connected to your antenna before doing a full install. If it works as expected, continue, otherwise, return t and try another brand.

RE: Gas stations for Class A gassers with space

One word of caution. The Walmart in Natchez, MS is almost impossible for a rig of any size at all. Limited access, and very busy. o not even think about it. However, just a few miles away, over in Vidilia, LA., the walmart there is easy access, not too busy, and should be accessable by just about anything. I recommend it if you are going that direction.

RE: Are Heartland RVs that bad? Many negative reviews on the net

I do not own a fifth-wheel, but after seeing these pictures and reading this link from a friend of ours, I sould seriously avoid the Heartland name, or anything made by them. Please see this link, it is really scary, considering whatcould have happened if she was inexperienced, and knew to check her rig at every chance. See this link: http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29617306.cfm

RE: replacing old TV

Not likely, but if the frame was put on with a staple gun, then finished properly,, the staples will be invisible. Try the knife thing, then gently pry with a screwdriver

RE: replacing old TV

Yes, there probably is, you just need to find it. Try sliding a thin knife or feeler gauge between the frame and the cabinet to determine where the screws are.

RE: replacing old TV

Unless you plan on having good internet service all the time, I really wouldn't worry about it being "smart". but would go for the cheaper "non-smart" ones. Unless you have good routers and wifi service, "smart doesn't do a thing for you.

RE: replacing old TV

Hard to answer without knowing make or model, and pictures would really be good. We replaced ours several years ago, the front frane came off with screws, and the replacement was simple. I can send pictures of ors, but really need to see what you are working with.

RE: Gas stations for Class A gassers with space

Most Walmarts... But be sure and take a good look first. Some are a bit close.

RE: standard tv mount or rv tv mount?

Sounds like someone is trying to feed you a line. Just put in place to travel, secure with velcro or a bungee.

RE: Repairing a busted up ac Shroud

Had one shroud disintegrate while driving on an Interstate, in heavy traffic, and high winds, no shoulder to pull off until the next exit. We could not repair ours because it was scattered all over the Interstate. Big RV dealer at destination had one in stock, and Shop repair person came out to the campground and replaced it after hours that evening. Cost about $100 for the replacement, which was a stock item, and we paid the tech generously for his time.

RE: Owners of RVGarmin gps

I love my Garmin, although I know not to trust it everytime, and especially on unkown destinations. If they could come up with a "common sense" route instead of just fastest or shortest options.

RE: Class C - keeping pets (dogs/cats) out of driver's area.

Our dogs always rode in their crates. They were very uncomfortable trying to ride with them loose. Both were large dogs, we put their (soft) crates up on the bed in the back.

RE: gas stations

In most cases, there are acceptable gas stations at most interstate exits. Just start looking well before you get short on fuel. Might have to check at more than one stop. Most truck stops will be acceptable. We have traveled that way with a 30' MH and toad with no problem getting fuel at all.
