Why not? As I have repeatedly said, if you KNOW the applicable laws, and OBEY the laws, and DOCUMENT your compliance with the laws, you will have NO trouble!
As for a physical address, just go to the UPS store, rent a PMB, and your address becomes the street address of the UPS store, as in:
1234 Any Street
Anytown, Anystate, 59187-1234
You can use that address on your vehicle registrations, your driver licenses, whatever you need to use it for.
When you move to another location, simply call the UPS store and change the address where your mail is to be forwarded.
We did it for three years, while we moved every 13 weeks. It worked great.
X2 This is what I do, although I was already a resident of TN before I went FT.
Well Sir, I don't know how long you've had your King Dome and how long it's been having this problem but, ours basically does the same exact thing. We bought our coach, an '04 Itasca Horizon 36GD with the 330 CAT about 2 years ago and, about 6 months after that, we acquired a Direct TV receiver and, hooked it up to the King Dome. It worked as it was supposed to for about 8-10 months.
Then, one day when we were at home and, the rig is parked in its normal parking place, I turned on the K/D and let it search, as I always do/did when we're working on the coach or cleaning it. Well, the ON green light was normal and the searching light was red, then amber then, it started blinking green and I thought it was almost ready to fine tune and stop. Then the light should stop blinking and go solid.
Well, it kept blinking green and, when it does that, the K/D is not satisfied that the "Bird" found, is the right one and, it will go in to the search mode all over again. It will continue to do that forever now. I almost kicked it off the roof one day when I got fed up with it. But, nice gent on here sent a note out to me that stated, "You don't have to throw that thing away, just set your TV screen up to be the signal meter and, start the K/D search.
Then, when the graph starts to move and turn green, and the beeps get faster and faster, and, when you think it's reached its highest percentage of reception, reach up and push the off button to off". Then, put the TV screen on regular tuning and it will bring in the channels, as normal. It works flawless that way. It's like having an "automatic and manual" satellite system in one. Hope this helps some.
I was told , when mine did this , that the power supply voltage in low. The detector for the signal is voltage critical and if voltage is slightly low it will not lock-on to the satellite. I never got to check this out before I traded the 5er.
Just wondering about head space as you enter ClassAGeek. Do you need a bike helmet or is there enough space to not have a sign saying "Watch Your Head" posted at the door? I cut my cabinet back about 3" to save my head from knots.
Your current set-up will work okay. If you have a concerted box now, just take it out of the antenna circuit and hook antenna to the switcher for your RF signals. If you have non-HD satellite, just leave it hooked through you switcher. The antenna you have will pick-up HD signals just fine. Some extend their reception with a add-on to the existing antenna that is available from most RV stores.
Mine came with a LED strip that works off the brake light switch and is mounted on the dash when in use allowing me to see when brakes are activated.
I just had the SMI Air Force One installed on my new Honda CR-V. I had the M & G system on the old Honda but that system would be so much more difficult to install on the new 2013 as the master cylinder is much lower and more difficult to access (but could be done).
The Air Force One works about the same as the M & G. The only obvious difference to a lay person is that the Air Force One has a cylinder that is attached to the brake pedal arm. It's attached pretty high so it can't be seen at all.
So, to answer your question, it works great. My installer was going to have my front left turn signal light up when I pressed on the brakes so I would know that the Air Force was working. Since I put a full mask on the front of the toad, I told him that it would not be necessary. So, in essence, I don't know if the brakes are activating. I probably should get something put inside the coach to let me know.
I read someplace that when the antenna searches then stops and then search again and repeats this process, you power supply has low voltage.
The circuit that detects the signal need good 12 volts to work properly.
the other parts will work with the low 12 volts. So check your 12 volt power supply while the antenna is searching.
