RE: Confused about bearings

On trailers I always used Bearing Buddies and re-packed them under pressure as I drove. NOTE: BBs can blow your rear seal, they sell one that is pressure resistant. Never had a problem with the BB's in place.Are you feeling well? Your responses are normally several paragraphs long. :B

RE: metal rv port

Forgive me if I'm missing something about these structures but why would you spend so much money and leave both ends and most of each side completely open to the weather?Water, sun, hail, you name it. Mine stays cooler in storage during summer, I feel less chance of headliner damage. No continuous water, less chance of water damage.

RE: Straight Talk phone service

I was using ST with my Nexus 5 but didn't like the no tether rule. Went with ATT bring your own phone for $5 more bucks per month, 2.5g, tether all you want.

RE: How Important is Double Pane Windows? (Precept 3UL & others)

I'll be the first to say that I am glad that I don't have double pane windows. Too many posts about leaks and resealing. Just can't see them as having that much of a help with climate control given the nature of the building of RV's.

RE: Headsets for intercom

MY wife has a weak voice from MS. She amplifies her voice with a voice amplifier. You can google it. Works real good. Here is one for example. http://www.alimed.com/voice-amplifier.html?gclid=CjwKEAiAxsymBRCegqiLzI7Q1S8SJADOgQrzcydb3yYf5ns8-Spgh6Igzd3-m6lWt1aM4-QDKDrZzhoCS6Xw_wcB Another cheap one with good reviews: http://www.amazon.com/Amplifier-Portable-Teachers-Presentations-Costumes/dp/B00875VR4S IMO: You won't get rid of the noise so the only solution is to make your voice louder.

RE: Winegard Trav'ler DirecTV Slimline

When I had problems locking on, it turned out the dish and/or arm had a small bend somewhere, somehow. It doesn't take much as someone else posted.

RE: What are the best Apps?

The only app I'm interested in hasn't been developed yet - a good app for RVparkreviews.com. I hope they come up with a good app like RV parky with the data base of campgrounds and reviews of rvparkreviews.

RE: Ocean City, MD Area February

Thanks all. In the end, it seems Pocamoke State Park is still open and has some spots. Not ideal but close enough for us.

RE: New OTA Antenna

Whenever the antenna is called an "HD" antenna, I begin to think the article or person making the comment is clueless. Whenever I see a comment like this I see an even more clueless person making a useless reply. :R The wave band is made up of all signals from the infinitely small to the infinitely large. It covers areas we may never identify for years to come. The television bands we use over certain segments of wavelengths has changed. There are less segments of bands used for digital television transmission. Radios by the way, cover much larger areas above and below television frequencies. That's why antennas, like mouse traps, come in many shapes and sizes. There is nothing wrong with a manufacturer claiming an antenna is made for the current televisions being produced for the current frequencies allowed by the FCC. It's time for some of you out there to "Get a life" and to only give helpful replies.It is an antenna. It will pick up whatever it is designed to pick up. My batwing could be used to receive FM audio, should I call it HD FM? Calling it an HD Antenna only serves to confuse an already confused audience. I will give any reply I want, if you don't like it, don't respond to it. Sorry that you feel you are one of those I mentioned. If you need some help figuring out antennas, let me know.

RE: AM21N TV Tuner works great

am21n tuner gets all it's programming data from the satellite, so, if it's not locked on, it's pretty much the same as a regular tv. I have a splitter on mine off the air signal. It plugs into the tv and into the am21n. No satellite, no problem, watch ota tv via the tv.

RE: AM21N TV Tuner works great

I have one in the house and one in the RV. For the house, I use it to pick up the locals that Directv does not transmit on satellite, such as METV. In the RV, it is fantastic for having a TV guide. I sometimes don't bother setting it up for just a night but if staying a place for a few days, I use it. I bought mine on Amazon and when it broke, I complained to Directv and they replaced it for free.

RE: F-53 suspension sagging on passenger side

We own a Winnebago Adventurer 37F with the driver side slide full length. It also has the 4 door "refer", washer/dryer, generator, and a pantry that BH seems to over-fill. On level ground, it has a noticeable sag towards the driver side. Weight distribution goes out the window with Winnebago Ind.. Guess the spacer blocks will be installed. As a former tool maker, a piece of cake, except "U bolts" may present a problem.My shop found new u bolts needed for the new size without any problems. I suspect any truck repair place should be able to find them easily.

RE: F-53 suspension sagging on passenger side

My truck repair place used spacer blocks to even mine out sideways and lift the front. I was nervous going this route but am glad now we did instead of air bags. It didn't take them long to do it with new center bolts and shackle bolts. The reason MH's sag is that the springs are either not up to the load and are taking a set. Adding spacers does nothing to solve that permanently. The problem will eventually come back. Increasing the spring capacity with added air bags is a permanent fix.My front end was not overweight. I would like to know how the front springs on a 2006 chassis can be worn.
