RE: Need opinion(s) on satellite internet

A friend of ours has the Hughes Net satellite internet system. It works very well for him. He uses a really nice tripod for the dish. As I understand, you can't just use it for a few months. There is a contract length of much longer than that, plus the purchase investment is very large. You don't rent that dish and components. But if you can justify using the system long term, it might fit your needs.

RE: Tiffin FRED chassis doghouse cover

My Dutch Star gasser gave me a fit trying to remove it. It has a couple screw latches but when it was installed, some of the carpet glue was still wet and the cover glued itself in place. Took a trip to the dealer to remove it and that took well over an hour.

RE: pluging in to 110 v when parked

I think we have covered every possible problem you will run into and now to answer your question: yes, go ahead and keep it plugged in. :) :) :) Now as to determine which end of the extension cord you should plug into the wall outlet??? That leave a lot of room for much more discussion. :) I suggest the pointy end.

I'm not an electrician but...if it were me, I'd just use the wiring diagram as shown but don't hookup the green little wires. That way you would only measure the amperage from the unit while boondocking. It really isn't necessary to measure the amperage from the charging unit..converter. Thats what I do with my amp meter. Don't use any of the Elite small wires, just the large ground cable.

RE: windows 8.1 or windows 7

Everyone seems to think that there is a huge learning curve when going to a Mac. I went over to the dark side 4 years ago and yes, there is a difference. But if someone as old as I am can learn the system, anybody can. Biggest change is learning that you don't delete in Mac, you send it to trash :) I think there is a bigger learning curve to the Windows OS. Its changing a lot between every new upgrade...7 to 8, 8 to whatever comes next. In four years I've upgraded my Mac OS and really never noticed a change. Programs still work as they always did. I have to admit, I partitioned my HD so i can run both, Mac and Windows but the only time I go to Windows is for the Family Tree Maker. :) Then best think I can say for Mac is that its over 4 years old and as up to date now as it was when I bought it and I have no reason to get a new one. With a PC I could seldom get over 2 years out of one without it pooping out.

RE: Oh my, getting old

As full time RVers, we all know that there is that time in our lives that it will come to an end. I guess all we can do is hope that we remember the memories we have of the fantastic years of travel and RVing. Good luck to you going forward....

RE: Tires. How old is to old

There are those who poo poo the age thing but it looks like we're all in agreement so far on this thread. :) I'm sure that could change in a heart beat. But I subscribe to the 7year theory. It hurt a lot to replace my last set, perfect sidewalls and well over half thread. But I feel better about it now and the pain of the expense has passed.

RE: So, just how "hazardous" can a tank full of poo be?

Makes you wonder what their diet consists of??????????

RE: Tire psi

A tire failure is never caused by too much air pressure. It fails because of too little air pressure. Air the tire to proper pressure cold and don't give it another thought. But handling and comfort sure do suffer when over inflated. Has to be hard on the house and components being banged around. You got bigger problems than that with that statement, like suspension or other problems, never see anybody get banged around because of too much tire pressure, and I run mine at cold tire pressure as to sidewall #s. You're also running a dp. The f53 is notoriously harsh. A lot of folks run the low side psi to help.Come on....quit picking at a scab. I didn't say to run too much air pressure. I said, and I stand by what I said; "Air the tire to proper pressure cold and don't give it another thought". I don't see how that can be twisted into the above rhetoric. I did take it for granted that tire pressure would be checked regularly....now lets see what the scab pickers can do with that statement.

RE: How many RVers does it take to change a light bulb?

That pretty much sums up the normal forum activity in answer to the most simple questions. Very good.

RE: Hi everyone, new to the Class A world

Heres the simple bit of advice I'd give anyone who, like you, are new the RV experience. On every camping trip, you will meet other RVers; they are a friendly group. Talk to them, ask the simple questions you are fuzzy on. There is nothing a RVer would rather do than show others how smart they are :) . They will explain, show, walk you through nearly any question you have. Don't try to absorbe the whole 1000 page book of "The care and feeding of your new MH". Just take it one chapter at a time, one page at a time. You will find that it really isn't all that complicated. You will also find that you will meet others who don't know how to lubricate the steps on a MH and still manage to muddle through and enjoy the RV experience. BTW: Congratulations on your new experience.

RE: P_C or Laptop

An alternative? Get a nice laptop, a desktop screen (as large as you feel you need) Get a bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Connect them with the laptop safely stored out of the way and you have the best of all worlds.

RE: Need a good, workable Call Blocker for IPhone

iOS can do that for you already (assuming you have iOS 7+): info from the horse's mouth If you want to block everybody, or everybody but a select few, you can put them in as favorites and turn on "do not disturb" mode and only they will be able to get through. Do note that the do not disturb feature also turns off a bunch of other things, like notifications and alarms.Son of a gun...who'd a thunk it? Thanks, found it. Its so simple yet a bit hidden until you get directed to the blocking feature. Exactly what I wanted. Thanks to everyone who answered. Old dogs can learn new ....new.... new somthing :)

Need a good, workable Call Blocker for IPhone

I can't find a good call blocker for an IPhone 5. My wives Android has a great one, free and it works just perfectly but I can' find anything free or otherwise that is available for the IPhone. The ones I see all have terrible reviews. Anyone use one that works well?

RE: Electric bike battery question

What ever lipo battery you find that will work is the big part of the conversion. The other big part is finding a battery charger that will "SAFELY" charge a lipo battery. It has to be the proper battery or charging the batteries will be a sure fire disaster in the making...emphasis on the word FIRE.

RE: Can you leave the keys in without draining the batteries?

My MH keys have been in the ignition for over 10 years without ever being removed. Hummmmmm.....maybe thats why I have to be jump started every time I try to start it? :h

RE: Jacksonville Sheriff's office seized property auction

I've been fultiming for over 10 years and have been asked the age of my MH once. The ten year rule is way over stated.

RE: Does anyone watch the Academy Awards...

My wife did as you did. Tape it and speed thru the fluff which reduced 6 hours of TV time to 20 minutes. But I have to say: She made me watch one tiny bit of the show....Lady Ga Ga? I always thought she could sing well but just couldn't stand her showmanship or lack of. She put on a stand up performance that just took my breath away. That side of her probably wouldn't make her as popular as the freaky side but it was refreshing.

RE: Purchase Using 3rd Party Escrow Company

Sorry can't help you with personal experience, which of course is what your question is. But: For something as expensive as a new or late model RV, I think I'd be prone to having first hand touchy-feely.
