RE: Progressive Insurance

Thanks for the info. I won't use them but also because of the political views of the owner /person running the company. Why do you think they call it Progressive?Yet another highly educated american voter.

RE: Second or Even Third Generator Remote Switch

The remote looks nice but it is an autostart. I would like to start it manually from the dash which I can't do now but don't want autostart. Yes autostart but you can turn that component off and turn the gen on/off manually.Thanks Doc.

RE: External Speakers, do you really want them ?

I would like to personally shoot the folks that designed RV's with external speakers. You noise should not leave the confines of your camp site. If it does, you are invading my space. I would like find a portable EMP device so I can disable all the electronics on stupid people to think they can play their outside speakers and tv's without regard for their neighbors noise privacy. Invading your space? NOW, I've heard it all. Lord help the person that sneezes near you.Apparently common courtesy is something you haven't heard of either. Just as in an apartment building, I wouldn't want to hear your music.

RE: External Speakers, do you really want them ?

When we first got the trailer I would set the volume then actually walk away from it to ensure they are not loud enough for everyone around us to hear. Now we know what volume number to keep them at. :B we did this also. I know our volume and it is contained. I did the walk also :)The "walk" is not good enough. You need to go to your neighbors and ask them. I am very sensitive to sounds, particularly bass. Many think their garbage music is down enough but I can hear deep bass from a mile away. It bothers me and if I hear it, I will let you know. Be courteous, no outside speakers.

RE: "Updated" Demco Dolly Blew It Bigtime.!! "Updated"

You had some patience. I bought a master tow dolly to tow my first Town & Country. Towed it once for about 300 miles and couldn't stand it. Sold it and went 4 down with a lube pump and UTB. Best decision in a long time. On my second dodge with remco and utb with no issues at all.

RE: TST Monitor Not Show Pressure or Temp

We are pretty sure the sensors are working. When you take it off and put it back on it will display the pressure and temp. Turn the monitor off and back on, it won't display. Also, I unplugged the repeater thinking it might be hosed up but it didn't change anything.

TST Monitor Not Show Pressure or Temp

Have a strange issue with my TST system. The system cycles through all the tire positions but all but 3 are not showing air pressure or temp. Suspecting interference from a remote temperature gizmo, I removed it and took the batteries out. No change. When I got to the campground, I changed all the batteries on all my sensors, 10 in total. No change. Called TST, they had me take the monitor outside to a non-showing tire. Removed the pressure cap and immediately the monitor alarmed. Screwed it back on, and now it showed pressure. Now, no change. Still all but 3 tires still not showing pressure or temp. I just can't think of what would be causing this issue. TST says interference of some kind but I thought I eliminated the possible source with the temp. gizmos. Ideas? Thanks.

RE: Towing Honda Odyssey 4 wheels down

I had this info from earlier. Odyssey: trying to determine if i can flat tow my 2014 honda Resolved Question: trying to determine if i can flat tow my 2014 honda odyssey touring model behind my RV. I towed my 2010 5 speed with no issues - I know Honda is not going warranty any issues - I just want to know if it can be done. My friend tows his 2011 6 speed behind his RV with no problems Submitted: 9 months ago. Category: Honda Eric Expert: Eric replied 9 months ago. HI, Yes, you can tow it. It can be towed as a dinghy(flat towed), using the same procedures you used for the 2010 model Ask Your Own Honda Question Customer: replied 9 months ago. Just confirming you are aware that this is the 6 speed tranny vs 5 speed Expert: Eric replied 9 months ago. HI, Correct, the 2014 is a 6spd trans versus the 5spd for the 2010. The 2014 with 6spd trans can be dinghy towed. You use the same tow procedure as the 2010. There is no difference in the tow procedure between the 5 and 6spd transmission.

RE: Map program

How can I incorporate my POI's that I use with my garmin? I played around with copilot but didn't see a poi for campgrounds nor a way to import my poi's I have saved up. Thanks.

RE: Garmin RV 760LMT GPS pros/cons?

The only negative and what kept me from buying it is that there is no setting in the RV profile for propane. When I spoke with Garmin about this, the response was - "Oh yes, we should have included that. Perhaps on a future model." The same truck GPS from Garmin does have a profile setting for propane/hazardous gas on board. This may not be important for some, but on the East Coast there are a number of routes one cannot take with propane. Is LP really an issue? I know the Baltimore tunnels prohibit propane but is there anywhere else on the east coast or anywhere else at all that also prohibits propane? I have not personally encountered total LP restrictions anywhere else.No. But if it can't route around that, how can I be sure it is protecting me from low clearances and such?

As stated, review your route the night before and be prepared to NOT listen to the gps. I take the route often around Baltimore and have played with the settings. It still wants me to go into the tunnel.

RE: Will Winegard Traveler work w/ existing cables?

I have read a few posts about people replacing their in motion sat with a Winegard Traveler. Curious why they're doing it. Not sure what cables the Winegard needs, Bill can respond if he spots this. However this question I can answer.. In days of old when folks were bold DirecTV used one satellite, Dish used two, and some (many) domes were set to work with just those 3 birds..... Some with just one, (They needed a long time to switch birds and often manual input) Some with 110/119 Dish pair, swiftly swithing between them Some could do all 3. But 129 was not on the menu (or is it 127) the new 3rd Dishnetwork bird. THUS if you want HDTV you have to either 1: Use a ground mount dish type antenna or 2: Subscribe to DISHNETWORK and upgrade your dome. I suspect that, just like me, no one has any idea what you are talking about here! :? As an aside, if you don't know anything about the OP's question (will it work with the existing cables) why are you trying to muddy the waters with this rambling post? I usually do that when I have finished my 2nd drink at cocktail time. Not sure what your motivation is.Lighten up Bill. All of his posts are just as lengthy. He is just trying to share some knowledge. Personal attack not needed.

RE: Coleman 13,500 Rooftop

Just put a 15K unit on the roof. PPL was the cheapest I could find. Do some research though, their webpage stated I needed certain parts but it was not true.

RE: SL3 SWM Slimeline single line triple LNB failed?

Just a thought for future reference. I find it helpful to use Dishpointer Pro on my Android phone to get a good sense of where the satellites are. That way I'm not too frustrated if my Trav'ler fails to see them through the trees. It also lets me know if it's even worth getting out the tripod. We tend to spend the summers at locations where the satellite elevation is low due to being rather far north and east. With Dishpointer I know in advance if it's even worth trying!How is this app better/different than some other free satellite pointing apps like satellite ar?
