RE: Solar controller questions/help

Yes. Apparently a disconnect between the batteries and the controller. I don't know what charge off, load off and load on mean. Was the sun out during this check?

RE: Slimline aiming - V's in the trees

Cut the tree now, before it gets bigger and more leaves. .As soon as the rain stops I'll do that.

Slimline aiming - V's in the trees

I found a V in the trees for my Slimline HD DTV. The red arrow shows where the Lnb arm is pointing.. at only 34° of elevation. The actual signal comes in from a much higher angle. I'm getting around 83% signal on the 101 whereas 93-95% is usual sans obstructions. The 99 and 103 sats are strong enough too. http://photos.imageevent.com/2oldman/rvnetlinks/websize/dishaimSite7LewisClark2.jpg

RE: Cancellation of Roadside Service for using 6 times in 3 yrs

I think you may want to admit that 4 (or 6) uses in 3 years is about 5 too many 'emergencies.' Obviously you don't consider that excessive, but they do. Maybe it's time to consider more preventive maintenance.

RE: Cancellation of Roadside Service for using 6 times in 3 yrs

Another person who's never made any contribution to the forum. Joined for the single purpose of venting.OP complained about GSRA a year ago. (Hijacked a thread). Stayed with them, apparently. Excessive use is why you were cancelled.. not *any* use.

RE: TPMS - I know, again!! Need some buying advice!

I use an air pressure gauge to check pressure. I also look at my tires at stops for anything stuck in a tread etc....I was all set to order one but you read these threads trouble with this trouble with that I put the money into steel casing tires instead. And with tpms you don't have to. If you want to find the trouble with anything just ask here.

RE: Camping in the Rain

Just raise or lower the tongue slightly before pulling in the slides, That's the best idea...unless you're *really* fussy about this...or think that's bad for the slides.

RE: TPMS - I know, again!! Need some buying advice!

how long does it take for the monitor to alert you to the fact you've lost contact with a sensor? Have you ever checked the time frame? .About a minute. The monitor is constantly cycling thru all the sensors, and suddenly one will just show blank. Turning the monitor off and back on will clear it up...for a while.

RE: TPMS - I know, again!! Need some buying advice!

.. excessively long time between losing contact with a sensor and being notified of that. It can take up to an hour to be alerted that the monitor has lost contact with a sensor.With my EEz system the 5er sensors drop out all the time, even with a repeater. I think I'll check the batteries soon.

RE: TPMS - I know, again!! Need some buying advice!

Would a pair of cameras looking at the tires be less fuss than a TPMS?Heavens no. TMPS is also a good way to check your tires before departing.

RE: Camping in the Rain

Yes, my seals do a good job but I wipe off before pulling them in as others suggested.I guess you aren't going anywhere if it's raining. :)

RE: Satellite Reception Problems.

Signals come in strengths, like your phone. You should have a meter on there somewhere.

RE: Suggestions for tripple towing ATV trailer behind camper....

I guess the truckers decided it's triple (one p). No, it makes no sense.

RE: Verizon?

The first 22GB are solid 4G/LTE, and after that the plan is subject to "deprioritization".Doesn't sound so bad.. unless you do a lot of streaming and they actually do throttle you.

RE: Camping in the Rain

The seals, if working properly, will wipe it off. It's the sticks and leaves you need to wipe off.
