RE: RV Seller Network??

I also just received a call from RV Seller Networks. We are going to sell our 32BHOK and they have all kinds of promises. Any other reviews? See my post above. What else would you possibly need to know?

RE: Michelin LTX M/S2's - good or bad?

The only way I have seen to use a laptop in the closed position and external monitor is with a Docking Station. The manufacturer specs does list a part number for one. Not true. True docking stations no longer exist. How would you know that that is not the only way I have ever seen?

I figured you could just use the Headphone out jack to some powered computer speakers/sub. I also think there are quite a few wireless mice that will work at that distance.

RE: Which Satellite Antenna to buy?

I use the Carry-Out 1518 It has 2 outputs. I have used it on a couple of different DVR dual tuner receivers.

RE: Dish receiver question with portable winegard 1518

I have not heard that you could only use a 612 and don't think that is true. That said, I do currently have a 612 and it does freeze up regularly.

RE: buying new motor home

Seems that MHSRV is not actually giving the current $10,000 rebate as their prices are the same as before the promotion. Just a note added to the description that the rebate is included in price. I did buy mine from Total Value RV simply because they were the only place I could find a 390RB equipped the way I wanted it. If I lived near them and planned on them doing my warranty work, I would have to think long and hard. After the purchase we just had the feeling they wanted us gone. They didn't send my Certificate of Origin until after I called a couple times about it. Just got it Saturday and now have a very short time to get my title before I have penalties. Not sure if there are other dealers in your area, but I found several that would meet or beat MHSRV prices, and then give you the rebate to boot. BTW, if you want to ask some Berkshire owners, check out the Forest River Berkshire Forum

RE: Preparing to hit the road

Here is our prep: Turn on alarm with online access and text alerts. Set thermostat to desired temp for the season to reduce costs. Turn off water and water heater. Set up as many bills as possible to pay online. Have yard mowing service. Have relative or neighbor check house and pick up mail. We do not turn off cable or other services. Haven't really thought about it. One thing we hate is on Springtime trips, we come back to a yard full of weeds so it would be nice if the lawn service took care of that. Plants will also be dead unless someone waters them.

RE: buying new motor home

I see you are in Indiana. I picked up a 390RB a month ago there. You know about the $10,000 rebate, right? May I ask which dealer you are getting yours from?

RE: Preparing to hit the road

What do you consider a 'long' trip? What time of year?

RE: What Do You Put On Windshield Chips, Etc.?

I don't recall seeing anything that was DIY. I have had a glass repair place fill in a chip way back as I didn't have insurance. Now my insurance has glass replacement at no cost.

RE: expired memberships ????

I have found in many cases, the 10% discount cards are not even asked for. The 50% Passport America they do want to see a valid card.

RE: Opinion on 2 TV'S?

After having a Smart TV for a while, I'll never buy another that isn't. I think it's just the future for televisions and any model without it is a little behind the times. One great thing about my Sharp Smart TV is that my Android phone will display our travel pictures on the TV wirelessly. And of course Netflix also. Some of the other things I look for in a new TV are: Thin frame around the screen. Sufficient number of HDMI. Optic Dolby sound output.

RE: Jeep Liberty recall notice

The only notice I've gotten is on the head restraint system. I believe that not all model years have the original recall (rear end collision fire), but I may be wrong. What I read said only the 2002 to 2007 liberty models were affected by the rear end fire recall. Since yours is a 2012, it looks like you would not be in the recall.

RE: Jeep Liberty recall notice

Yes, still waiting. Although I did get a notice on my General Motors vehicle. :)

RE: Sun Shades or 2nd AC

Hi dan, How did you fasten the snaps? What material did you use for the shades? Can you see "out" of them? Do they need to be removed when traveling? Another approach may be awnings? I did make some 'outside' Snap On shades, but have not gotten to test them yet in any real heat. I did work in the Solar Shade business and know that they are phenomenal on homes. But, I think you are on the right track to block the heat before it enters the RV rather than try to cool it down after the heat has entered. I used these SNAPS to attach and the SUNTEX 90 Solar Screen. Can see out great during the daytime and people cannot see in. That all reverses at night. I never tried, but I think the wind would blow them off if traveling with them attached. Hope you can see the picture: https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-xRYCyNqcEg4/UzHlXS0ssSI/AAAAAAAAACc/vKoZuDMvOag/w719-h405-no/shades.jpg
