RE: Portable DirecTV Antenna?

Automatic aiming or manual setup/aiming?

RE: Rving and Medicare

I already have a "privatized" version of Medicare with a zero additional premium United Health Care Advantage plan where the government just passes my mandatory Medicare premium along to UHC. The plan has a "Passport" feature that lets me use plan contract service providers in other states than my "home" state just by letting UHC know where I am. Emergency room and urgent care centers are covered everywhere without notifying UHC. Would this same feature still be there under a revised Medicare system? We'll just have to wait and see what happens...

RE: Fueling at truck stops

As said, no gas at the truck islands, just diesel. We've always been able to gas up either at the Flying J (and some Pilot) RV pumps or the regular car pumps in other locations. The trick is to always plan your exit before passing the "point of no return" when entering a station.

RE: Should we turn off the water?

When we leave our Adirondack cottage in cold weather, the water pump is turned off and the pressure in the pipes is relieved. The thermostat for the LP hot air furnace is set at 45 deg.F. We have two inside temperature sensors (and one outside) that wirelessly connect to an AcuRite AcuLink Internet bridge that uses our cable Internet connection to transmit the humidity and temp readings to a central server that we can access at any time from our PC's or an app on our phones. The AcuRite system is set to notify us if a sensor temp drops below a preset value, the sensor batteries are getting weak, or there's a loss of signal. Our two daughters lives just a short distance away and regularly check on the place, and in the event of a low temp alert, can be there in quickly to handle any problems.

RE: residential refridgerator

Yes, the residential fridge itself doesn't need 12VDC, but the inverter to run it on 120VAC when not on shorepower sure does. Making sure the 12VDC system is up to the task is essential.

RE: DirecTV Winegard Travler to DISH Conversion

I have actually looked into moving to Dish due to the high cost of being a DirecTV customer (any satellite provider that you have been a customer for much too long). The deals are great but now I have to deal with satellites spread across 20 degrees and EA and WA and a guide I can't figure out. I would need a Hopper (3 tuner) to replace my Genie (5 tuner) and I guess a Super Joey to add 2 more tuners. The rest of the wiring works and I am sure that I would be just as happy with the changes (in time) but for now, I like what I have and I really hate change. A Hopper 3 with 16 tuners would blow your Genie's 5 tuners out of the water. And having the EA/WA choice just gives you more aiming opportunities. :)

RE: Weather guessers calling for nationwide cold blast next week

If the forecast temps hold up for the next week or so here in Upstate NY, we'll just be seeing the temps dropping down into the December average range after running a bit higher than normal. We just had our bulk propane tank topped off though, so we're ready for whatever temps come along. As long as the roads and skies are clear for our take off south about Jan 8th, we'll be happy.

RE: Roadside Service

Is FMCA actually Coachnet? FMCA used to have an arrangement with Coach-Net, but it was dropped a couple of years ago as I recall. I don't know who the company is they're using now.

RE: Fires in the Appalachians

Perhaps Insurance companies will drop a word to those rebuilding. Insurance rates in areas with no fire service are very high. From what I understand most Fire Insurance companies do indeed offer discounts to those who install protection systems, Perhaps they could do better in suggesting systems in some areas.. I might add Those offering break in and theft insurance also offer discounts if protection is present. John, you're not quoting me, that's from down home's post. I'm well aware that insurance companies offer discounts for various protective devices.

RE: Roadside Service

You said you're not interested in any other companies, so you probably should know then that Good Sam contracts with Allstate Motor Club for their roadside service. I don't know who FMCA is using now...

RE: Fires in the Appalachians

Anyone notice a word of chastisement, in my post? I doubt the Folks we helped the last two days, will even consider it, this time. Won't know about it to consider it. Perhaps Insurance companies will drop a word to those rebuilding. Insurance rates in areas with no fire service are very high. Those building log cabins, the rates re outrageous and prevent many from building their ideal retirement retreat, in the woods. Obviously hindsight won't help the folks in TN, but rooftop fire sprinkler systems are nothing new, having been around and in use for many years. I don't know why more people in high risk locations don't have them. You can even buy them on Amazon. It's just something you don't think about until it's too late I guess.

RE: Asheville, NC.....Need local knowledge

Mama Gerties, Lake Powhatan Recreation Area, and Asheville East KOA are all within 10-11 miles of 39 Stockwood Rd. Exd. Taps RV Park is about 6.5 miles. All of them can accommodate a 37 ft 5'ver on some sites.

RE: Gas lines

If you can find one in the appropriate size, the flexible hoses sold for residential gas water heater and gas dryer hook ups may make installation easier.

RE: Best Toad Braking System

There is no simpler auxiliary brake system than the ReadyBrake system. It's entirely mechanical with very few parts. Initial installation is simple enough for most shade tree mechanics to manage, and hooking up to travel only requires snapping a cable clip on a cable loop. As said previously, the ReadyBrake is a proportional surge system. We've towed about 50,000 miles so far with ours with zero problems.

RE: Cyber Monday special!

If there is such a thing, I need an antenna that will work with both Sprint data and Verizon voice and data. The Maximum Signal website says you need an antenna for your specific carrier. Not sure what's what. As Gord said, the carrier specific antenna thing must be a typo of some sort, Bill. We use our Max Amp RV setup with two Verizon hotspots and two Verizon cell phones, an AT&T hotspot, and have used it with a T-Mobile hotspot in the recent past, all with good results. When we were at one campground in the Pisgah National Forest in NC, one of the hosts would come stand in front of our coach now and then (by invitation) to make phone calls with his Sprint phone, so the Max Amp worked well for all of the carriers using the standard mag mount antenna supplied with it.

RE: Residential refrigarator

I use a couple of flip up window latches to secure our residential fridge doors. I painted the underside of the flip handles with a bright nail polish so we can tell at a glance that we remembered to latch them when getting under way. To keep items from sliding around, we use Camco double spring bars. http://i.imgur.com/inmxll1l.jpg width=400 http://i.imgur.com/YocCTt6l.jpg width=400

Cyber Monday special!

If you've been thinking about buying a high end cell service amplifier/repeater, I read on Maximum Signal's Facebook page that they're offering $75 off either package for phone orders only. We've been extremely pleased with the service and support we've received with our Max Amp RV system, and I highly recommend it. Maximum Signal on Facebook I'm not financially associated with Maximum Signal, just a very happy customer...
