RE: Direct TV ??

I want to thank you all for the input. It sounds like it would be more problem than it is worth, so I will probably stay the way that it is. As long as they keep selling VHS tapes, I'm OK. Thanks again. Mike If all you want to do is take the Genie and watch programs previously recorded it is no problem at all. No antenna is required. Just be sure you don't push the reset button on the Genie as it will not come back to life until it sees the satellite signal. Otherwise, just take the Genie, plug it into your TV and watch all of your recorded programming. Will the Genie allow me to use an older dish to pick up current stations out camping? Mike

RE: Direct TV ??

Mike, I do the same thing, taking an SD receiver along on trips. One question I have is since the Genie is HD will it work your present RV setup. In my case I have an 18" SD dish so using the Genie might be an issue. I have never tried the HD receiver on the road, so I'm not sure how it would work with our smaller dish. Thanks. Mike

Direct TV ??

I have had direct TV for some time now, basic package with one HD and two SD receivers. We have always taken one of the SD receivers and TV when we went out in the boonies to watch TV. Believe it or not, I still use VCR's to tape programs when watching other programs. My question is, they said that I could get their Genie and two mini Genies for $13 a month more than I am paying now. At just over $100 a month now it makes it questionable. I can record up to five shows at a time which sounds better than my VCR. The Gal that I was talking too didn't seem to understand what I wanted to do, so she couldn't tell me if it was possible. If I had 200 hours recorded on the Genie, could I take it with me camping and watch the shows from it while out camping or watch the current shows if I wanted to?Otherwise it wouldn't be of much use to me. Thanks. Mike

RE: Timbren Suspension Kit

I put Timbrens on my Dodge, they may be a little rougher with an empty ride, but I seldom travel without the trailer, and it is great with the trailer on. After all, it is a truck. I like them. Mike

RE: Internet Explorer problem????

That is on my selection for home page on the internet options, and always has been. Thanks. Mike

RE: Internet Explorer problem????

I may have to try an alternative for Yahoo, but I like all of the stuff they provide. Triker33, thanks, I will try that with Ccleaner. Mike

Internet Explorer problem????

For some time now, I have been having a problem with my computer. I can fumble along on my computer, but I am far from an expert at the computer. On my taskbar, if I click the internet explorer emblem for my homepage, that I have had MyYahoo on there forever, it comes up that "This page cannot be displayed." I have found that if I click the refresh button it will then come up. Then if I click the sidebar stories, Internet Explorer will at times quit working, and the only way I can get it back is to run my CCleaner, which requires me to put in all of my passwords on most of the sites that I go back in on. I have Windows 7 and this has only been going on for about a month. I have tried wiping the MyYahoo off and reloading it, with no help. It acts like it just doesn't like Yahoo. I have my stockmarket information and everything I like on there, so I don't want to get rid of it. Anybody have any ideas? Thanks. Mike

RE: Fridge temps

I would say yours is working well for that temp. I am glad to stay in the 40's when it gets hot. Mike

RE: setting out landing gear while still hooked up to truck

It also helps level the trailer for the night. Do it all the time. Mike

RE: Rust-Oleum Stop Leak

I haven't used it on the MH roof but I did use it extensively to seal between the walls and floor when I did a Travel Trailer Rebuild. By all accounts it works as advertised. That was a great job, and looks like a lot of work. Mike

RE: Fastest route through Seattle??

I can remember one trip from Medford, Oregon to Victoria that it took us almost as long to get from Medford to Seattle as it did to get across Seattle. They have more accidents up there than anyplace that I have ever seen. I was just up there on I-5 a few weeks ago, and we always seem to hit rush hour. Same old thing. I would think you would be in good shape early in the AM. Mike

RE: Using ethanol free gas.

I have been to a couple of small engine repair places over the last year, and the first question they ask is have you used gas/alcohol mixture. If you have they start with the carb. Mike

RE: Ram owners with flip up mirrors

I had a friend that bought a Dodge without the flip mirrors. He had a short TT, and while on a trip over by Lakeview, was stopped by a State Cop coming into town. He was escorted to an auto shop for a fixit ticket to get a pair of towing mirrors to attach to his truck. Mike

RE: Using ethanol free gas.

The other day I just bought some alcohol free gas for the lawn mower, and it cost me $1.80 a gallon more than I could get the mixed garbage for. Can't afford to get that for my car. Mike

RE: Old fashion woman bike for my wife

About 40 years ago I bought my wife a 5 speed bike Schwinn that I thought she could handle, she rode it about 100 yards, and refused to ride it again. Recently, I broke down and got her a Wal-Mart light weight cruiser, and she loves it. Rides it all around when we are camping. Mike
