RE: New navigation device available

So far I haven't graduated from Rand McNally roadmaps. WE don't need electronic do-dads to figure out where we are going. I can get a new map every year for less than 10 bucks. Marvin

RE: Class C, OWNERS ONLY PLEASE American or Foreign Chasses

I regret buying my "C" on a Sprinter chassis. Hard to find a service department. If there is a nest time it will be FORD. Marvin

RE: Why is that ?

Jack, I suggest that you tell Nancy to always put sugar on your Strawberries. ;) What was the other question? Marvin

RE: Tools

I carry a full set of tools----SAE and METRIC-------sockets open and box wrenches hammers, screwdrivers, pliers,multi-meter, Torque wrenches and a bunch of other stuff to mechanic with. Saws, drills, etc. I have all the welding products needed except for a welder. I use jumper cables and 3 ea. 12 volt batteries to weld with. since 1986 and full timing most of that time I had everything I needed except one time my utility trailer tongue cracked and I had to find a Welder. Too big a job for me and my Battery welder. Someone mentioned Tape. Make sure you carry DUCT tape and not Duck tape. Big difference. Marvin

RE: Pilot flying j issue

IIRC, I have never used plastic for fuel purchases for personal use. Company cards, yes. We are cash only folks mostly however I do have one CC with a 1K limit for internet purchases. I've been buying fuel for personal use since 1956. Marvin

RE: McD's in Quartzsite

I would have walked in, seen the line and walked out. I would have never walked in. My cholesterol is plenty high enough as it is. I'll leave those Gut Bombers for someone else slowly commit suicide with. Marvin

RE: Do We Need to Access Eastern Arc Dish Satellites

I used Dish Western Sat service before they had Eastern Sat service and never had any trouble in the lower 48. We were on the road full time then. I would, however, have to place the dish in the open sometimes 100 feet or so from the RV, in order to receive the signal. As someone said the Eastern Arc is at a higher angle above the horizon, therefore better in a "many tree" environment. Marvin

RE: Process of elimination

Thanks for all the replies Folks. You have been very helpful with your input. I do use Dish from home in my RV so I need to keep that as We Don't watch the national networks except one. Natgeo, Smithsonian and History type channels are what we watch mostly. One person asked about Text and I I understood it. My answer is yes but have no need for it. BillSatellite, you Sir, do not owe me an apology and I always appreciate your informative answers. Now I have some research to do and some decisions to make. Marvin

Process of elimination

Hi Everyone, We are paying about 80 bucks for our two AT&T flip phones and 75 bucks for home (Windstream) phone/internet. 117 bucks for DISH Network. Is there anything I can have at home and camping to replace these? I need internet and cell phone service. I also have Dish but think I need to keep that at $117.00/month. I have a separate antenna for dish network while traveling. Thanks, Marvin BTW, Neither of us use Text messaging. $272.00/month is putting a strain on our fixed income.

RE: Fiat 500

Any special considerations when outfitting it for towing? The special consideration is that it is a terrible car with very poor ratings from many sources and has one of the worst reliability ratings of any car sold in the USA. AS far as towing, it is light and has no restrictions as to distance or speed with a manual transmission. That is probably good, since it may well be towed to a repair shop more than it is driven! That is total BS as ours with 70K has never been the shop except for oil changes. We cant tow ours as it is an automatic. Marvin I am glad you have had good service from your Fiat. However, what I posted is not B.S. Consumer Reports maintains a data base for repairs and their records form actual consumers say different. You are right about the consensus--------------we are lucky I guess. Forgive me. Marvin

RE: Enclosed trailers

If I had a powerful Diesel pusher I would tow a two axle enclosed for my TOAD and other stuff. It would be my BUG-OUT trailer with extra supplies. For regular camping I would prefer 4 Down. No Dolly and No trailer is the easiest. We full timed from 1986 to 2005. Most of the time it was 4 down. Marvin

RE: Hydraulic Generators

run the drive engine, to power a hydraulic pump , too spin a generator something here doesn't make sense to me 1st and 2nd Law of Thermodynamics. When you convert one form of energy to another, you can't win. You can't even "break even". Not trying to argue but most train engines are Diesel over Electric I think. I would NOT want this setup.

RE: Using the front Bumper to park a TT vs the Rear Bumper?

I guess I have too much experience to ever need to have a front ball. That is double work IMO. Marvin

RE: Considering Consignment with Camping World, any experiences?

I would never consign to an outfit that also sells new RVs (dealership). They will push new first and maybe show yours at times. Also, be sure you hold the title, don't give it to the consignment lot, just a warning. I agree and I no longer visit CW. Sell it yourself and use no Middleman. Marvin

RE: Batwing antenna and SensarPro

First check for a small button on a wall plate for powering the amplifier in the antenna head. Power it on. Next go to your TV menu. Look for input and set to antenna, not cable. Rerun station scan. This should work, but check your TV owner's manual I had to do this to my TV also. It gave me fits until I changed the TV settings to Antenna. I couldn't believe it when I got around 30 stations just north of Daytona Beach, FL. Marvin
