RE: Verizon Pay As You Go,better than MyFi??

It also depends on where you camp. My data is dated as I have not checked or used Pay-As-You-Go for 2 years, but when I used it, there was no coverage in "Roaming". Check their map.

RE: Dish Network and local channels

I have one more question about this topic. I have three dish receivers and I take one receiver camping with me, if I call and change the service location, will it change that on all of the receivers, or just the one? Thanks Yes, the locals will change for all receivers on the account. Only the receivers that are in range of the current locals spot beam will be able to receive them. Yes. x2

RE: 50 amp service

If I was to take a really wild guess, you are no longer recieving shore power. The items you mention are running off the inverter, and your batteries are nearly discharged. Off the wall? yes. Wild guess? sure. Please, let us know: year make and model of your motorhome. manufaturer and model of your inverter/converter. Easiest to just pur your moho info in your sig.... A real good guess on a Phaeton.

RE: 50 amp service

Get a Kill-A-Watt (digital, no needle to stick) for inside and a digital volt meter to use at the pedestal.

RE: We backed out of the deal

Interesting arguments on both sides.....I'm from the old school where my word is my bond and once agreed upon, it's done. The OP had the opportunity to inspect the coach and find it's flaws. It appears to me there was no intent on the seller's side to cover up or defraud the OP. I'm sure there's more to this story than what's been published. IMHO, the seller acted in good faith with the OP by letting him 'use' the coach BEFORE paying for it. This tells me the seller was satisfied about the condition of the rig. Had he thought it might be a deal breaker, he would have kept the coach until it was paid for then let the OP try to unravel it. He did not do that, so I would have to side with the seller on this one absent any further information......Dennis x2 The seller was even nice enough to accept payment a day or 2 after delivery, which was not forth coming. We do know that the buyer had the opportunity to inspect before agreeing to the sell. We have nothing saying the seller hid anything or lied. We do not know how high or low the accepted offer was. Nothing saying he hid anything? Did you read what the OP said? Exterior trim and furring pieces were used to hide the damage. That isn't how you repair water damage. That is how you hide water damage so you can unload the coach on a sucker. I did. The OP was able to look at the rig before accepting the offer. Why did he not do the more thorough inspection before accepting and taking delivery? Because apparently the seller did a decent job of hiding the damage. Took the OP a little longer to find it. So you appear to be completely fine with somebody hiding significant damage and trying to rip people off, and if the buyer doesn't catch it time oh well, too bad for them! I have thought about this. I will recant my previous position. There are many states that have a '72' hour (+/-) grace period for just such a case. I am not sure this is exactly what it was designed for. I am not convinced the seller HID anything. The repair may have been adequate (even though poorly done) for the seller. The repair may be a year or more old. No intent by seller has been shown. I do hope that many read and understand this topic, as it serves as a "buyer be ware". I still think the OP did not do a thorough enough inspection or ask the right/enough questions. The real problem I have is that an agreement is your word. If you make a mistake and agree to something, you should stand behind that. IF the OP did not do a thorough inspection, then the OP is wrong and should pay. If the OP asked about all repairs and it was not disclosed, the seller is wrong.

RE: Those of you with Tailgaters

The device you put into the 211k is formatted immediately. do not know about the z. Have the 500G Toshiba unit. The VIP211 (no suffix) would not read/format the drive. Called dish and for $40 they sent an update/upgrade so it will format/read the drive. Have not been to the trailer to hook it all up yet. The Toshiba did format with the 211k with DVR at home. Dish tech support did say to store anything you have on that remote drive to a source you can retreive it as formatting will erase everything on the protable drive. Yes. I am sorry. Assumed that you already had thed DVR program. It is a one time program fee.

RE: A/B Switch for Sat/Cable

An AB switch will work. Be sure to get a good grade. Also, the success depends on current wiring. Sat. really needs RG6 to reduce loss.

RE: Newer gas class A ride quality

I've had two class A's, both Fords. The older one (2003) was a rough ride and a fight to drive. My 2014 is a dream to drive, smooth, less engine noise and with the better transmission. I would not hesitate to recommend the newer Fords. That said, make sure to test drive a few and see for yourself.. Good luck x2 Our first was 2004 Coachmen Aurora 3480DS (36') and current is in sig. The Tiffin is miles above the Aurora was. I think this is for a few reasons. Better chassis construction over 10 years ago. The Tow/haul tranny assist is great for engine braking in the mountains. Tiffin also does 'Dynamat' style insulation (Aurora did not have this) from bow to stern, which reduces noise and heat/cold transfer. A key to my thinking here is to look at each class of gasser. Yes, there are different levels and some different levels within a mfgr. Not all gassers are equal. I believe Tiffin and Newmar make great products. Happy hunting.

RE: disadvantage of having MoHo parked in driveway.

I am trying to think if I own anything that has enough value that I would be willing to shoot someone for trying to take it. Outside of my wife, my son, and my dog, the rest is just stuff and hardly worth taking a life over. Absolutely! Stuff can be replaced. On the otherside, if I or my family are at the house and someone enters uninvited, they are an immediate threat to anyone in the house. I do not know if they are only there for the TV and do not know what they will do if they realize they are not alone.

RE: Newmar versus Tiffin

You can get Tiffin support and warranty work done at local dealers. YOu do not have to go to RB.
