RE: Size of generator ?

I guess I should have read and comprehended the post rather than seeing the 11.2 AMPS and commenting. My Honda 2000 will run a 12amp circular saw without any problems and I bet any 2000 watt generator should handle without any issue. Joe

RE: Size of generator ?

Based on 11.2 amps it sounds like you want to run an A/C. If that's the case search for Honda EU2000 A/C. You'll see numerous threads discussing start amps required and efficiency loss when it is hot. Some folks can run a 13.5 A/C on a single Honda EU2000 but most folks can't. I can start a 13.5 A/C and run but if it's above 90 degrees (when you really need the A/C) after about 10-15 minutes I can see the voltage start dropping and then it goes into overload. That's why I have 2 paralleled. The Yamaha 2800 will run an A/C no problem as will the Honda EU3000. Anything less is iffy..... Joe

RE: Georgia Dome

Your best bet may be Stone Mountain. You can drive to a Marta station and take the train to the Dome.

RE: Instructions for setting up satellite TV?

I'm kinda lazy and cheap. I mounted my Slimline HD dish with a very short pole on a piece of 2x12 about 2 feet long. The only meter I use is the one on the TV in the setup menu. The trick is making sure the pole is plumb. Once the pole is plumb I get the proper coordinates by using the zipcode on the setup program. The skew always remains the same so then it's just the elevation which I set next, then slowly rotate the dish while watching the TV screen. Normal setup time is less than 5 minutes total. If it's out normal tailgating spot then the elevation hasn't changed I kinda know the direction so it's about a minute to fine tune. I am happy with around 90% on all 3 satellites. Sometimes I'm happy at 80%. I'm sure a heavy rainstorm would cause me to lose reception but it really hasn't been a problem. Like someone said earlier, try it at home and you'll get comfortable and realize it's not hard. Joe

RE: No Direct TV Receptions

You basically have to have a direct connection from the satellite to the receiver with no splitters or amps in line. Since it's a new unit it may be wired for satellite but should be marked. I would run a cable straight through the door to the receiver and set up the dish. Once I know it works I would then attempt to use the trailer wiring because even if prewired for satellite they could be crossed.
