Wireless, remote speakers with Dish Hopper?

We take our Hopper with us for our winter stay in Mesa Az and would love to have music outside. Same thing at home, we need music on the patio. In the Bus we have a Blue ray player that runs the surround sound. At home the player is made by Sony. Neither, to my knowledge has provision for wireless remote speakers. What would be the best solution?(least trouble, best sound, cheapest) I did speak with Dish technical support and was told the Hopper will not do what I want, Thanks in advance, Bob

RE: Flat Towing small vehicle

Just be real careful with the resulting low ground clearance! My friends had a six inch drop that would sometimes rub the ground when negotiating low driveways. They never worried until the ball mount broke and their tow broke loose! What a disaster. Bob

Drain hose racks, a good thing?

It seems to me that blocking the drain hose so that it is in a perfectly straight line may not be a good idea. I'm sure that it may drain more efficiently, but, you are loosing the natural trap formed by laying the hose on the ground as it needs to go back up at the fitting on the end of the hose. What am I missing here? Bob

RE: Alberta Gov't just releases this.

There are other issues concerning Canadian health care that need to be understood. I am no expert but here at our park in Mesa,Az. we have had several cases where Canadian snowbirds have had rude awakenings! One guy, a good friend, had a heart problem that required a stint. As soon as he was stable, he was required to return home to Ontario as his insurance would not cover the prescribed drugs here. At first the standard time to remain in Ontario was 3 months without a Doctor procedure or prescription change. Unfortunately, he had an episode with a rapid heart beat due to stress, with no complications. He is now required to stay home for a year or risk having no insurance. A second incident involves a man who fell and broke his leg. He was denied coverage because he had a slightly elevated alcohol level. There have also been problems with ambulances taking Canadians to hospitals that aren't covered by their insurance. Being able to stay for longer periods is a good move but there are other issues that need addressing! Bob

Real hard water here in Mesa, deionize of soften?

We're here for six months and are going to do something about the water quality, just not sure what. It is nearly impossible to wash the coach or car and get it dry without water spots. My question is, which would be the best solution? The Mister clean wash system worked well but I can no longer find chemicals or the cartridge that treated the water so what do you all recommend? Bob

Miata? I know about the lists but they don't always work on older used cars. I'm thinking of replacing my tow, a 1985 Toyota MR2, which I bought new. No one said it was towable four down but it has done well. Bob

RE: Damaged RV by dealer

CATS!! A friend of mine who owns a diesel repair shop was working on a high end D/P motor service. He hadn't finished at day's end so he locked the entrance door and went home leaving the bed propped up with the motor exposed. You can guess the damage the cat did after climbing over the Cummins to get inside the warm m/h with all those soft seats and couches to try out. He apparently spent the night going in and out because there was grease on every patch of upholstery. Bob

Norcold leaking water fixed, very curious

Bought an '06 Bus that leaked water daily. I blew or tried to blow, air through the rubber tube that drains water from the catch tray under the fins inside the refer. No flow! I pulled the racks to get the plastic overflow box out to see what was causing the blockage. The nipple that has the hose attached had never been drilled all the way through! Less than 1/8 inch of plastic was all that needed to be drilled but it had been blocking water flow since new! How did the previous owners live with a refer that didn't cool and leaked water all these years? I guess that's why they traded for a new Bus and took a $200,000 hit. Oh well, their loss, my gain.

Nevercold now very cold, east fix!

Long story short, bought an '06 Bus from La Mesa Rv in Mesa, Az. They promised to fix refer which would not cool below about 44 degrees no mater the setting. They tried, replaced the thermister, still no luck. They suggested I find a repair facility here in Oregon so I contacted a local mobile rv repair service, Chuck's Mobile Repair. Chuck was GOOD! He removed the circuit board, hot wired the cooling coils directly to 110ac and noted the whole refrigerator became a freezer. It was 24 degrees inside! This proved the cooling unit was not the problem. He then checked the circuit board and determined it was good also. The "fix" came after he looked up at the coils visible from the outside looking up through the access panel. He first used duct tape for a temporary check and we noted the temps inside went right to 34 degrees and stayed there for two days. He came back and replaced the tape with a small piece of sheet metal which is visible in the photo. Problem solved! He said the clearance was too great between the coils and the wood surround which allowed the air flow to bypass the coils entirely. I have searched the forums here and at Tiffin and noted many folks unhappy with their Nocold four door lack of cooling. Some posters have even replaced their cooling units and still had problems. I'm betting this "fix" will repair many of the problem refrigerators. Bob http://imageshack.us/scaled/thumb/30/ler.JPG
