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.

RE: autoformer

I have had a powermaster 50amp wired inplace for over 5 years. Works great I guess as I never have low power issues.

RE: Atwood A/C with heatpump operation question

Thanks guys, It is the inside fan that is coming on and off. It may be just sampling the air temp. To determine if heat is required. It is the first time I have needed the heat function. Will call manf. According to my post with the actual Atwood operation instructions, your HP is doing as designed. Doug Didn't read the manual OR your post.

RE: RV Park Reviews

Is there an app yet for this? A real app, not that other thing they used to have?

RE: pull-forward sites?

the small campground just North of Baltimore has some motorhome only, pull in sites overlooking the bay. I have also seen "buddy" sites where RVs in adjacent sites park so that the patios are facing each other. sounds like a great idea to me. bumpyWhat is the name of this place?

RE: Good window sealant

The only way to correctly seal your windows is to remove and reinstall them. The caulk on the top of an RV window is mostly for cosmetic purposes plus a little extra safety. The real seal is butyl or putty tape that is used during installation. Butyl is better but more difficult to work with. Yes. I used a butyl putty tape like Winnebago used. Note this is not regular putty tape but is black and stretchy. The windows were not that hard to remove. A few screws on the inside and they came out pretty easy.x2 what he said. Make sure to get the black stretchy butyl stuff and not the white putty type. Once you reseal the windows with that stuff you won't need to mess with them again.

RE: How do you squeegee a round windshield.

My squeegee is almost like 2 large foam pieces instead of the typical rubber blade type you see. I think Lowes carries them. It helps with the curving of the windshield.

RE: Cell phone passcode?

For normal use. I do not use the pass code. When in shopping malls or rallies where any big crowed is I turn it on. There is an APP called ICE. That first responders can get contact info only for those you put in it. It will bypass the code.Huh? Ice will not show up at all on a android 5.0 screen. Like someone else said earlier, if you want someone to get to your contacts or ICE when you croak over in the mall, you better not use any lock. I won't just for those reasons.
