RE: Why a GFI HERE ?

Have you tried more than one outlet? You could have an electrically "noisy" power. These GFI's can be really sensitive, which is a good thing. Imagine using a corded electric lawn mower and running over the cord. Damp grass, etc. You could become the return path for the power so the GFI could help prevent making lawn bacon.

RE: Driver's License Dillema

Call these folks We have been very happy with these folks. Another state like SD might be better for insurance because Florida is a bit high. Close to Calif rates.

RE: Sealer for cable entry into RV

Landscape foam sealer I use this. Looks very much like the stuff in my RV.

RE: Is there such thing as a satellite radio antenna boaster?

You have a malfunction. Where is the antenna? An amp is not the solution.

RE: Hot dog! It's time to leave for Cali, but "hot dogs" ok?

Fruits and vegetables into Calif can be a concern. They may ask to look in your refer if you have them. If you do, please be honest because the Calif ag industry is huge and could really be harmed. Now for the hot dog. If you get in the Northern Calif are and can find Miller Hot Dogs give them a try. They are made near Stockton Calif. We cannot get them in Florida and I have had them shipped here. This Summer we brought back about thirty pounds of them. Gallo Salami is the best too and we brought back a bunch of that.

RE: DYI Antenna Mount--Red Neck style

Does anyone know an easy (or hard) way to de-compress this type? I have a few that I compressed and they didn't hold. https://encrypted-tbn3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcS-6mCayWuuV72g3SigvWRis9h4GhVleAoQf5rAI3FJIwPf4A3C Cut them off and put a new one on. They are not designed to decompress and you can buy them by the handful at Lowes.

RE: "harmonics" noise

I would take a look at any antennas on the roof that may have an open coil design. That is, a spiral section. I have wrapped them with heat shrink tubing on ocassion to stop the nusiance The previous owner suggested this. Maybe he noticed it after installing it. could be a cellular, cb, ham etc antenna.

RE: Metal to fiberglass bonding

Structural adhesive Structural adhesive will hold. I personally do not trust any tape alone even if it is 3M. I used Structural adhesive for the metal to fiberglass connections on an airplane I built.

RE: Electric Fry Pan?

We use ours all the time. Along with two Nu Wave Induction cookers. Our propane stove is only uncovered to clean it.

RE: My thoughts on the Rand McNally GPS

I found on the trip we just returned from, Fl to Ca and back, that using my prescription polarized lens that it was impossible to see the screen. For some reason I turned the screen clockwise about 45 degrees and it is visible. The high contrast setting is not where you would think it should be. It is not on the screen where you set the brightness. It is on a screen that has three selections. Use the High contrast one. Be sure to have the GPS in the RV mode and of course always cross check. Google Earth is great for doing a pre-trip. Do not make trips longer than a day. Just have the gps recalculate every day. They do need to address the issue of the polarization. This is not good. I have an older Rand Mcnally Good Sams unit and it does not have the issue.

RE: Melted fuse and no running lights

It is not unusual for fuse boxes to need replacement. The contacts can become resistive which can then lead to heat and ultimately a slow disintegration of the box.

RE: Filling medicine prescriptions while traveling

Traveling with a paper prescription I found California would not accept mine from Florida. Then getting back to Nevada they said it was beyond the fill date allowed. I'm talking maybe a week. Other prescriptions are not a problem. We use CVS and have an app that works well.

RE: DirecTV self powered setup meter recommendations?

I have done lots of research lately but have not found one near that price range. I still use my Sat Buddy 2 but the internal battery has very short life even when new. The Swift Hitch camera might work well to peak those stubborn narrow birds. The price is just a bit much at this time but sure looks like it is built well. So do I buy the Hitch Camera or put a few more dollars into a meter than cannot have any other useful things to do in its life. I am thinking the Hitch Camera could even be used as a security camera in places. I recently converted my slimline dish head to a swm head. I am pleased my old meter still works well enough to get started. Peaking of the two narrow birds is nearly impossible without the wife watching the tv screen,. With the hitch Camera I can do it myself and actually help others that have Dish for example. I have the align-a-site, and dishfinder app on my Droid. The App on the droid is excellent. The align-a-sit is expensive and a bit tricky to use,. I am providing this information not for the OP so much as for others that read this thread. The OP has most of these devices already. With the tools I have if there is a chance of a shot through the brush I can make it. However, peaking those two narrow birds on the Direct system is critical.

RE: Feeling sick since first day RVing

Sounds like Carbon Monoxide poisoning. Are you running any propane powered heaters? Are you parked next to someone with anything burning fuel? It can feel like severe flu symptoms and if you are nearest a window exposed to it you may be the only one. Our Hot Water Heater is near a bedroom window and we keep the propane off at night or until needed.

RE: Problem filling the tank!

Sometimes they just install the filler hose incorrectly or poorly. I too had to trim an inch or so off one RV that would not fill fast. Dig around and remove panels to follow the filler hose.
