RE: Fall color predictor

Wow! That subject line was a wake up call! Fall Cometh!

RE: "Mobile homes" flipped

Yes, the media often gets things wrong when reporting on things outside their sphere of knowledge. I was driven near crazy on the first day of Harvey coverage when several national cable news anchors referred to "Port Arkansas" Texas. No such place. It is Port Aransas. Here, they could not even read the word properly off a map.

RE: Slide Out Topper Problems

While tightening might help in some cases, I feel the bigger problem is they get installed so the fabric is horizontal - has no pitch or slope. Seems to me if the inboard edge of the fabric was an inch or so higher than the top of the roller it would help the water drain off. I see some that are installed this way, but not many. You would think the industry would have figured this out by now, but clearly they are not too interested in fixing this common issue. Mine also collect water in the event the A/Cs happen to drain toward the slides. So what, not designed to be used with air conditioners either?

RE: Can You Name This Device?

I copied the URL address for the image, pasted it in Google Image Search. For those not familiar, this will search the web for images that resemble the image you provide it. It guessed "material" for a search term, maybe because of the background. I changed the search term to "leg brace" and it came up with several photos that look similar. I clicked on one and got to the page below. From what I see, I suspect it is an ANKLE FOOT ORTHOSIS. http://valleyorthocare.ca/2014/10/27/care-instructions-for-your-childs-a-f-o-s-leg-braces/

RE: How do I post a Link or Clicky

You need to go to the Advanced Post Form and then click the 10th button over that looks like a globe and chain link. Hover over it and you will see a "Link" tooltip. Just click that button, then paste in your URL in the dialog that opens.

RE: Computer is old

I've had good luck with multiple refurbished laptops and towers, but always went with Dell rather than Acer and such. While refurbished will seldom if ever be the absolute latest technology, in my experience they are recent enough - maybe within the last year or so.

RE: Drivers license requirements going state to state

So in TX you can pull >10k lb cargo trailer without CDL? You have a link to show it? http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/DriverLicense/dlClasses.htm

RE: Drivers license requirements going state to state

In 37 years in Texas as a Motorhome Service Tech, I have never heard or had a customer get a ticket with just a standard Drivers License. Even when driving over 26k motorhomes. Doug Is it actually required in Texas? In California a Class B license is also required to drive a vehicle over 26k GVWR. But if you check the fine print there is a little provision in there that exempts RV's. I have spoken with people who didn't realize RV's were exempt from that weight section. What about in CA...... MHs over 40' but under 45' MHs over 45'? Trailers over 10,000#/5th wheels over 15,000#? We weren't talking about that. The subject was simply vehicles with a GVWR over 26,000 pounds. My 35 foot DP falls in that category. Since we are still talking about this, in case anyone was wondering, in TX if you drive a motorhome over 26K lbs AND pulling a trailer/toad weighing over 10K lbs, that would require the Class A Non-CDL exampt license. I never expect to need to do that, so just applied for the Class B. No mention was made about towing during the testing process.

RE: Drivers license requirements going state to state

Is it actually required in Texas? It is. I just went through that after changing residence to TX. While the details can be found in the statutes and such, here is the application for a non-CDL Class A or B exempt license. Note item 4 where you certify that you will be driving an RV over 26,000 lbs. https://www.dps.texas.gov/internetforms/Forms/CDL-2.pdf

Doug Regardless, RVers of heavier rigs should follow the laws for their state of residence. Get in an accident, regardless of fault, without the proper license and the outcome will likely be negative. You may get a ticket, insurance may not pay or may even be cancelled. A TX class B exempt is just too easy to get to risk it. Plus, you LEARN some things!

RE: DirecTV Genie Smart Search and East/West Coast Channels

The software changed. It did not used to be that way but it is what needs to be done now. Maybe your call to DirecTV will get it back to the way it used to be....you know, the right way! I like things to be RIGHT! Unfortunately causes me much grief on many fronts! I think I will update my input to DirecTV now that I understand the situation. The current behavior makes NO SENSE logically that I can see.

RE: DirecTV Genie Smart Search and East/West Coast Channels

FROM OP Thanks for the informed responses! I checked again and when I do a Smart Search, the results are initially categorized as "Unsorted Episodes." No E/W DNS channels. Indeed as mentioned, if I press left arrow to get to the left menu and select "Upcoming Airings," they all show up - cable channel, local and E/W DNS. What's THAT all about??? :h Maybe there is some logic to it, but I don't get it. Why two sets of results? Anyway, thanks for the tip. Maybe I can manage to get it to do what I want...

DirecTV Genie Smart Search and East/West Coast Channels

I just got done with a chat with DirecTV Support and it seems I am the first to report an issue with the Genie DVR and what they call the "Network Package." For those not familiar, this package is popular for full-timers since they may seldom be in their local zip code and not able to get their local network channels. While both the east and west coast network channels show up in my Guide, if I use the Smart Search feature, programs on any of these channels will not be included in the search results. It will only search cable channels and the network channel in my "local" zip code. I can record the east/west network channels if I hit the record button in the Guide, and that is great, but I have long used and liked the Smart Search feature. The technician was going to put in a trouble ticket, so hopefully it will eventually be fixed. If you are a DirecTV customer with Genie and the Network Package, you may want to see if you are similarly limited. If so, let DirecTV know so maybe the priority will get elevated.

RE: NC Highway Patrol seeking help to identify RV driver

I see the NCHP have issued an update wherein they advise the deceased driver has been identified. Sympathies to his family and friends, but I am a bit taken aback that the paper published his full address. That doesn't seem appropriate from a privacy standpoint.
