RE: Help me understand California Turnouts

We've traveled in all states and find California no different. If you're going the RV speed limit of 55 and are 10 miles below regular cars then, yes, you'll get some backed up cars. Just pull over at the next safe spot. I don't see your problem. Best post in this thread...thanks. Just drive courteous.

RE: 2016 Trip California Orgeon and Washington

Isn't this a great country to see and explore? Enjoy and maybe consider doing a Trip Journal. We are very happy with ours to share with family and friends. Safe travels.

RE: What's on your menu this Memorial day weekend?

We like to go with the 'ol standbys' on the BBQ. Friday was - Brats and the usual trimmings. Saturday was - Steak, baked potatoes and salad. Sunday (tonight) - Chicken and salad. Monday - Burgers, red potato salad and ..... Refreshments of course. Oh....we usually don't deserts although they can be an option.

RE: Wineguard pathway x2 question

Agree....but we don't "move" the coax. On the X2 the Aux, or 2nd connection, runs directly to the receiver in the bedroom. We run the intial setup choosing the Western Arc and select 1 TV...works fine and you can use the 2nd TV. After you set up the 1st do you leave it as is and set up the 2nd as 1 tv also? 1st is fine and is the main connection. Turn on the 2nd TV and follow the on screen directions. We've been doing this for years and no questions or problems.

RE: Wineguard pathway x2 question

The locals will ONLY show up when we have it set for 1 tv. As for the same shows...no. The hours of the shows are different and we can't get the local news unless we use 1 tv only. different Time Zones same as OTA broadcast been that way for 75yr nothing about that , I did say "somewhere", i did not say same time you can't blame the winegaurd or the satellite company because you want to watch some program 3hrs earlier than it is broadcast here on the west coast i mean I don't blame you, watch Game of thrones at 7pm instead of 10pm or whatever it is, and then change ARC's to catch the locals but it takes time for the 'DISH' in the dome to do this it is what it is, People have to adapt to their location.

RE: Wineguard pathway x2 question

If you are out West use the Western Arcs when doing your setup. As far as getting locals have you talked to DISH, phone or chat, to give them your current location?

RE: How do I stay internet safe when travelling?

Best answer in this whole thread...and it was early. We use Verizon's MiFi Jetpack and feel this is the most secure we can be on the roadBut what about this: Verizon MiFi Hack Hmmm...2 replies in the thread started in 2014. Sounds like the OP of that might be the problem. Again, We use Verizon's MiFi Jetpack and feel this is the most secure we can be on the road

RE: How do I stay internet safe when travelling?

Don't use public WiFi. Get a MiFi unit preferably from Verizon. Or get a smart phone that lets you set up your own hot spot. And you'll enjoy your MiFi when the public WiFi is so slow it's really not usable. You can still use public WiFi for browsing and mail to keep your personal data usage down.

RE: Problems with Dish TV and Tailgater

We have a Tailgater. The software has been updated and they replaced the box used inside. Understand you have the Tailgater portable antenna...my question was what Receiver are you using? 211k, 211z or some other?

RE: Problems with Dish TV and Tailgater

What DISH receiver are you using? If you were given the Tailgater you may want to talk to them again. If you decide to purchase a portable dish look at the Pathway X2 which picks up both the Western and Eastern arcs (satelites).

RE: Realistic Budget?

We plan on doing some occasional boondocking and taking advantage of weekly rates whenever feasible. The lodging figure is 120 nights at $30 per night. Is that an unreasonable estimate? We've also tried to estimate everything at the high end. With money, I think it's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. If we find we've overestimated, we'll add another month or two. Very good and enjoy your trip. With that where out West are you planning? Remember Jan - April, and some times earlier and later, are winter months which can/could slow you down. If you get South early in your trip you may avoid some of the winter weather than taking a northern route. Example; This was our backyard in Reno on Nov. 10. 2015 when we were getting ready to leave for S. AZ for the winter. http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/20153140750110.jpg Anyways enjoy and budgets can be adjusted. :B

RE: Question for S. Cal people

We were over Tehachapi before we knew it. Going toward Bakersfield is an easy climb. Going east, not so easy. No matter what route the OP takes there will be a climb and a decent. We normally take the 58 out of Bakersfield every Fall enroute to S. AZ. Yes Eastbound is a pretty steep climb but not a problem for us. Less traffic usually than the Grapevine and we do not even consider it because of that. Westbound is less of a climb starting out but you still have to come down (brakes) and that could be a factor no matter what route the OP chooses. There is no real route, that I know of, where going over the mountains does not have steep climbs and decents and we still have not heard what the OP is pulling and with what. Maybe that is his concern...not enough truck.

RE: Question for S. Cal people

Going from say N OC to the 5 freeway back to the 5 via the 14 trying to avoid the grapevine should I change to the 138 and head back to the 5 or go up to Mojave and then over to Bakersfield to the 5, tying to keep away from the mountains on the 5 freeway, time is not the issue just the climb?????? You pulling something? If you go to the 58 then Bakersfield you will have to go over Tehachapi Pass....not as bad as the Grapevine. Best bet probably the 138 to the 5.

RE: Tire Pressure for G Rated Tires

Make sure your wheels are rated for whatever pressures you end up with. Would think the dealer knew this. The selling dealer upgraded the tires to Goodyear G614s 235/85R/16 G rated for a max load of 3,750 pounds at 110 psI.

RE: Baby bison euthanized after ride in visitors' car

I agree the people shouldn't have done that,but thge calf could have been saved. No need to kill it. Ahhh...from a couple of posts up: "In order to ship the calf out of the park, it would have had to go through months of quarantine to be monitored for brucellosis. No approved quarantine facilities exist at this time, and we don't have the capacity to care for a calf that's too young to forage on its own. Nor is it the mission of the National Park Service to rescue animals: our goal is to maintain the ecological processes of Yellowstone. Even though humans were involved in this case, it is not uncommon for bison, especially young mothers, to lose or abandon their calves. Those animals typically die of starvation or predation."

RE: Tailgater Satellite Dish

When we had DishTV we used a Tailgater. It was great! Especially after struggling with an actual satellite dish on a tripod. We finally got tired of DishTV higher and higher prices and finally canceled Dish. Just last week I gave my Tailgater and receiver to another RV.net forum member who is just starting out RV-ing. Higher and higher prices with DISH?? Sorry but doesn't fly with us. DirecTV yes. DISH on the road, espicially with HD, is far superior than the other one. Oh...and we upgraded to the Pathway X2 from the Tailgater for even better service.
