RE: Dish Tailgater

250 feet I have the original 50 foot cable + 15 feet if interior cable + 185 feet that I purchased for those times where additional cable is needed. Put it all together and no problem with reception.

RE: Stainless steel cookware - recommendations ?

We received a Farberware cookware set as a wedding gift over 40 years ago that is still used today. We purchased open stock Farberware pots and pans that are permanent cookware items in our 5'r. They have been in use for almost 15 years. It would be a good decision to go that direction when making a purchase.

RE: Mr Heater Buddy vs Olympian Wave 6

Started out with the Mr Buddy for comfort heat in the 5th wheel and replaced it with a Wave6 four years ago. Wish I had bought the Wave6 in the first place.

RE: Attention RV manufactures, I want only one KEY!!

Don't like it? Change them! I did with Global Locks. Fortunately my 5r entry door came with the Global so I only had to change the barrel locks on the baggage doors to match. Easy and inexpensive job, and the keys are all the same double sided. Google "RVLocksAndMore"

RE: satellite TV for RV'ers

I have a Tailgater + Dish service at home and don't understand why people say buy an extra VIP211 receiver and pay an extra $7 per month. You just remove a house receiver by unplugging the coax cable, unplug the HDMI cable, and unplug the receiver power from your outlet. Take the receiver to the RV. Reverse procedure when you return home. I keep those extra dollars for something else. We have two receivers at home so nobody goes without.

RE: Cougar landing gear fuse.

When you find it, if it is a standard fuse replace it with an automatic reset fuse. Less than $5.

RE: cookware

Yes, Farberware is a very good brand(or at least used to be). We received a set as a wedding present almost 44 years ago(close to half a century:)), and have been our household "daily users" ever since. We subsequently also bought some "open stock" Farberware pots that reside in the RV. Is Farberware a good brand? Will it last a good while? I don't need it to last a half century, ha ha.

RE: Any info on the Prowler P22.....

It is essentially the same as our Elkridge E22. We have been very happy with our Heartland 5r. We did change the mattress to a more robust product(memory foam from lastingimpressionsfoamdotcom) and all 3 faucets(kitchen, bathroom, outdoor camp kitchen).

The "R" value of the insulation of the Elkridge line and Elkridge Xtreme Lite lineup is identical (Wall = R11, Roof & Floor = R14). The Xtreme Lite will likely not have a Coroplast liner on the undercarriage. The other main difference between the two is the Elkridge 5r's will have 6,000 pound axles while the Xtreme Lite units will have 4,400 pound axles. In general "Lite" trailers have thin walls.

Elkridge "Lite" models have been sold for at least 5 years. Before being renamed as Extreme Lite, they were called Elkridge Express.

RE: Butane lighters

I have tried many butane lighters over the years. The best one I have found is made by Bernzomatic. I get them at Home Depot. http://www.homedepot.com/p/Bernzomatic-BZLTR200-Flex-Stem-Utility-Lighter-328643/203696836

RE: Catalytic Heater Install

I'm going to be installing a Wave 8 catalytic heater in my fifth wheel and am aware of concerns and cautions concerning oxygen depletion, moisture condensation, propane leaks, and the need to protect the catalyst pad from dust. The heater will be portable, that is not attached to a wall. I have questions in three areas: 1) I would supply propane to the heater via a flexible hose. I'd like to have a quick connect fitting at each end of the hose. Is there any reason this connection method is not a good idea? Is there one type or brand of quick connect fitting that is best - that is, more durable or less prone to leaking? Is there one type or brand of propane supply hose that is best - more flexible, resistant to damage? I have a quick connect on the propane supply side of the hose, but the propane tank is located on the ground outside of the RV. I just use a small wrench to disconnect at the heater. 2) Can the heater be moved when it is on? Is there a grab handle on it of some sort? Yes you can move it while it is on, but you need to keep it stable so the tip over switch is not activated. There is a handle at the top back side of the heater, but it will be hot. An oven mitt will keep you from too much heat while handling. I just grab hold of a leg on the bottom and use the oven mitt at the back topside. 3) Any vital piece of information about catalytic heaters that I need to know? Mice have been known to pirate the burner mat material for nest makings, so you will want to secure it somehow. Olympian/Camco makes a dust cover that is a good investment. Since you will be using it as a portable unit, they make legs for it that will provide a more stable setting. I have the cover for my Wave-6 and bought a roll of 2 sided Velcro that I use to secure the cover at the bottom where critters might be inclined to get in. While traveling and in storage the heater is placed face down(after cooling) on the couch with the cover on and the front legs fitting down in the space between the back and seat of the couch. It has never moved during travel, and I have been over some pretty rough road surfaces. Thanks for all replies.

RE: Had sleep study last night: calling all auto cpap users!

1) Keep trying different masks until you find one that works for you. 2) Read different CPAP Forums. You will find other people that experience the same or similar problems you do. Let their experiences help to guide your decisions. Going on my 8th year of CPAP therapy, and have only missed 3 nights usage(which is another story). Have my CPAP now for 3 yrs this month. Originally had full mask at sleep study but ended up taking it off cause it made me claustrophobic. Close quarters didn't bother me till I hit 60 yo. Have nasal pillows which seem to work OK but I still have a problem putting the pillows with harness on each night. Most of the time I don't use machine due to uncomfortable feeling from the entire apparatus. Am a light sleeper. Do feel better when using it but cannot shake the feeling. Any recommendations?

RE: Tailgater Problem

Going to throw the BS flag on what they told you. I have a Tailgater and I installed a connector where the cable goes from outside the trailer to inside(dedicated satellite connection). Works fine with the 50' cable that came with the Tailgater to the outside/inside connector + 15' cable from the inside to the wall connector and also with a 135' longer cable that I purchased. You either have a bad connector or bad cable, or possibly a di-pole splitter which will also not work. Called Dish, after much "hold please", talking to lower level help then finally a real technician, he said there cannot be any connectors between the Tailgater and receiver, just one straight coax. Didn't believe him but tried running one straight coax through an open window and it worked perfectly. Problem now, how to use one coax without an open window or door. Tried closing the door on the coax which worked for a while until it damaged the coax. Any one else have this problem? How did you solve it? Any suggestions?
