RE: oven use in travel trailer

As others have said, we use our oven regularly for all kinds of foods. After breaking a couple of pizza stones, we tried the air bake pan others have mentioned, and found it to be equally as effective in distributing the heat more evenly. And it doesn't break. We've even cooked an 18 lb turkey in our RV oven. Our visiting daughters didn't even realize we cooked one half at a time until one of them spotted the toothpicks we "stitched" it together with for serving. :)

RE: Do I Really Need A Brake Buddy

Here is definition of a "trailer" in Washington. RCW 46.04.620 Trailer. "Trailer" includes every vehicle without motive power designed for being drawn by or used in conjunction with a motor vehicle constructed so that no appreciable part of its weight rests upon or is carried by such motor vehicle, but does not include a municipal transit vehicle, or any portion thereof. "Trailer" does not include a cargo extension. Not trying to be a wise a$$, does that mean a 5th wheel isn't considered a trailer? A well balanced 5th wheel has about 15-20% of its weight on the hitch. I don't know if that qualifies as "no appreciable part of its weight" though, compared to a bumper pull TT with only 10-15% of its weight on the hitch. ;)

RE: Fire Extinguisher Recall list

I received this email from Kidde a few minutes ago: "Thank you for participating in Kidde’s fire extinguisher replacement program. Customer safety is our priority and we are pleased by the strong response to our recall announcement. However, due to high demand the most comparable replacement for your unit is backordered." "We regret any inconvenience this has caused and are working diligently to fulfill your order as quickly as possible."

RE: how much propane in tank?

I use a simple handheld baggage scale to weigh my DOT cylinders. I think it cost about $9...

RE: How to remove rear furnace in MH

What make/model furnace is it? The common Atwood/Hydro Flame 8500, 8900, etc, series are almost entirely serviceable through the outside panel. The "motherboard", more commonly known as the "ignitor board", is easily reached on the upper left side in a conventional horizontal installation. Loosening a wingnut and disconnecting a couple of plugs is all it takes to remove the board for repair/replacement.

RE: RV rear door not closing without extreme assistance.

It might be a jack leaking down that's distorting the frame enough to throw the door alignment off. Have you tried releveling?

RE: Do I Really Need A Brake Buddy

The laws that apply to ALL states are the laws of physics. And they say you WILL stop shorter in a panic situation with a properly working auxiliary brake system than without one. End of story...

RE: Emails

If you're on a limited data plan, be aware that webmail interfaces use more data than receiving the email directly to your device via an email client.I, myself, am not. Nor do I know the relative amounts of data used. How much more data is transferred by webmail use is a function of the complexity of the webmail user interface, so it's difficult to put hard numbers on it without more specifics. The webmail UI data plus the email display data will always use more data than the raw email message alone though.

RE: Emails

, you could just use a GMAIL address and then use the GMAIL app which is a very decent offering.Or just use the web- based mail. Real easy. If you're on a limited data plan, be aware that webmail interfaces use more data than receiving the email directly to your device via an email client.

RE: Hopper 1 & 2 Simplified Wiring

Will the Dish Hybrid Solo Node work with a Wineguard Carryout Dish? No. None of the dome style portable or roof mount dishes work with any of the Hopper series DVR receivers. The multiple (3-16) tuners need access to multiple satellites at the same time to accommodate multiple satellite recordings.

RE: Learned something about satellite tv

Have known that since before Satallite TV was around.. Commercial Microwave towers (USed to toss TV from a studio in one city to a transmitter in another) all have heaters in them to melt the snow. When we lived on a mountaintop in the Adirondacks, we had a 15' Hughes aimable C-band dish that used to collect a lot of snow. I programmed in a phantom satellite that would dump the dish almost completely over backwards when selected, usually getting rid of enough snow to get the signal back without me having to go out and clean it off. Now with these little KA/KU dishes, I just spray the face with dry silicone and snow usually just slides off.

RE: Water heater plug

We've traveled on several occasions with a full water tank and water heater in temps down to 0℉ or so with no freeze ups. We've arrived at too many parks for an overnight to find their water system is shut down to not travel without a good supply on board.

RE: When do you empty black tank on hookup?

The common recommendation is to empty the black tank when it's at least 3/4 full to ensure a good "flush" action. The grey tank can be left open, although in your case that may cause some odor issues. Grey tank waste can smell as bad or worse than the back tank sometimes.

RE: If You Have a Mobley

i tried, it said problem can't turn off the Mobley account is my 'only' ATT device maybe those users with cell phone lines or other services with ATT have better luck than us 'solo' types The Mobley/Connected Car plan was the only device/plan on my AT&T account when I turned off Streamsaver. I have my Mobley SIM installed in an AT&T Unite hotspot now, and Streamsaver stayed off.

RE: If You Have a Mobley

I have T-Mobile which uses the same hardware.. THey ask me to review it .. I do not think they will be publishing my review (I will keep it till I can dump it but it very simply does not do what I want it to do, It won't even stay in the OBD port (I will fix that however). T-Mobile's SyncUP Drive device is a ZTE Z6200s, and is NOT the same hardware as the Z4200 that AT&T's Mobley uses. They have different feature sets and different frequency/band coverages. Comparing them is an "apples/oranges" situation...

RE: NC coast in Feb...would you do it?

Congratulations on the grandbaby! We often see temps lower than that while in our RV and remain quite comfortable. You will burn through a lot of propane though. I'd opt for the RV if you'll feel less intrusive there. On the other hand, your kids may be glad to have some "in house" experienced helping hands when that new baby arrives... ;)

RE: If You Have a Mobley

I had no problem turning off Streamsaver on my Mobley account. I just checked again before posting, and it's still off.

RE: Hopper 1 & 2 Simplified Wiring

Good points, but not enough to make me abandon my existing 1000.4 DPP setup to downgrade to a 1000.2 and DPH setup... ;)

RE: Hopper 1 & 2 Simplified Wiring

I have my Solo Node installed at the dish, so only one coax run is needed going to the RV. A Tap inside the RV divides the MOCA signal between the Hopper 2 and Joey. A splitter would allow more Joey's. With a Duo Node and 2 Hopper 2's, I would need 2 coax runs and be able to connect 2 or more Joey's with Taps and splitters.
