RE: RVing w/ Pit Bulls

I question the idea that the trouble with pit bulls lies with the owners. An owner can be part of the problem, but there is a problem with the breed. Every breed of dog was developed for some purpose: terriers, retrievers, herding dogs, hunting dogs, all were bred for certain characteristics. Pitbulls derive from dogs bred for fighting and bull bating. They were bred to to be aggressive, to bite and then hang on. In my opinion, the breed has no purpose in today's world and should be eliminated. I agree with most of this.. not sure about the elimination part ? just a week or so ago a very nice lady was killed near me by HER pitbull... She raised it from puppy, and was one of the nicest woman you would want to know. I USED to believe that it was the owners... not anymore I love dogs, but do not trust them ( Pitbulls).. just my opinion

RE: Any satellite guru's out here? Dish-Wally-Pathway X2

I may be way off base, but my X2 says it can only be used with Solo receivers (211, 411, etc.). Have they changed it to be compatible with Wally receivers? Ron Yes Rod, the Wally is compatible with both the X2 and King Tailgaters. I have used mine with both Interesting... what is the advantage of the Wally over the VIP211Z? Ron First is size, Wally is much smaller footprint to fit in cabinets easier, second is UHF remote, cabinet doors can be closed with no loss of receiving commands from remote, third is updated hardware and new style remote. Just a few that I have been impressed with. I have two Wallys in my coach, one in the bedroom and one in the living room. I also have an additional TV outside that I use a wireless HDMI connected to the living room set, allowing me to watch HD on the outside set. I ordered an additional remote for the outside set so I can change channels while outside utilizing the UHF feature of this remote - no line of site necessary. The Wallys are also capable of utilizing the external hard drives allowing program recordings on each, I had to pay a onetime $40.00 to activate this option, unlimited number of set are allowed. I never was happy with the 211z's, I had 211K's before upgrading to the Wallys in the coach, still use the 211k's in the stick and brick and shops.. the K's had both coax and HDMI outlets so I could run two sets at once on the old coach, trouble was the coax didn't give you HD. What type of wireless HDMI ? How well does it work? I am wanting to do the same thing..

RE: awning price

$200 for the fabric. If you have help, it is really an easy job. Just a matter of sliding the old fabric off the grooves, then sliding the new one on. Kinda sorta, ....just don't try it by yourself as Skillet said. Minimum 2 man job, 3 is better. Been there done that. Ideal is a person holding the awning arms on each side and you work the awning in the groove. Check youtube, lots of good videos on the subject. A few shortcuts too. Definitely a trick to it, find those tricks. We checked out you tube and did my BIL's ourselves . .Most of the job was 1-2 man job... we found that using 3 people when putting the new fabric back in the rail on the side of the camper works the best.. 1 per each arm, and one on the roof guiding the fabric in the slot.. The rest of the job was a breeze..

RE: Which Satelite bundls make the most sense?

We just purchased the Pathway X2 and Wally combo directly from Winegard.. We only paid $399.00 for the combo after their portable coupon that they offered.. It took me 3 days and close to 10 total tech phone hours to set up... If you have an issue, PM me, and I will tell what I had to do... Long story short.. I had to find the 3 western arc sats, get a good signal, and do the download off them, then I can get either arc... Product Quantity Price/Ea Total PA6002R Pathway X2 Portable Satellite TV Antenna & DISH Wally HD Receiver 1 $499.00 $499.00 $100 Portable Coupon: PORTABLE100 ($100.00) Shipping: Free FedEx Ground Shipping $0.00 Sales Tax $23.94 Total $422.94 Note: Purchase of a DIRECTV receiver is considered a lease from DIRECTV. Cancellation of service requires that receiver must be returned to DIRECTV under the lease agreement. If a product appears to be damaged in shipping please refuse the shipment from UPS and call Winegard Technical Support at 1-800-788-4417.

RE: Any satellite guru's out here? Dish-Wally-Pathway X2

OP here . . ** UPDATE ** I finally received a call from a technician that was in the Outdoor RV Tech Support department of Dish.. When she first called me, she promised I would be fixed.... close to 4 hours later, and all is FIXED ! ! She told me that every once in a while, a new receiver setup will require you to access the western arc satellites of 110/19/129 in order to complete the software update... It was BRUTAL ! ! I finally got my big rolling table out from the shed, ran extension cords, pulled the tv off the bedroom wall and hooked everything up in the driveway.. We kept going to different spots in the driveway until we got in a spot that we could access ALL 3 . . The sat finder we/I was using kept showing questionable on any 1 at a time.. She was persistent, And she also is an RV'r ! ALL my thanks go out to Karissa for her help !

RE: Any satellite guru's out here? Dish-Wally-Pathway X2

You say you have not tried it my way. Are you interested in trying it my way? If not, you need to get to a Dish retailer and have them connect the receivers to an open face Dish antenna. Bill, I did try it that way on Saturday.. No matter what I do I cannot get past the Download screen... When I hit Skip Back/Recall/Skip Back, It exits the download and get TV.. But every time I turn the wally off, than back on, it goes back to the update screen. Yesterday the folks at Dish told me that they thought this was a Winegard issue... While on Saturday, Winegard told me it was a Dish issue ???

RE: Any satellite guru's out here? Dish-Wally-Pathway X2

Last year when the Wallys first came out I purchased two. At that time I was instructed to connect each to a 1000.2 dish to allow the Wallies to download the updated software before trying to connect to my Pathway X2. After doing as instructed to get the software updated I had no problems connecting to the X2 Where would I find a 1000.2 dish ?

RE: Any satellite guru's out here? Dish-Wally-Pathway X2

Are you trying to use the 2 receiver setting and going to the 72 satellite? Did you get a successful check switch? If you are trying to use the 1 receiver setup with 2 receivers you must connect 1 receiver to the main output and preform a check switch. You will then need to connect the other receiver to that same cable and do a check switch on that receiver. Once you have each running successfully by themselves you will be able to connect both. Thanks Bill... As soon as my check switch is complete, it jumps directly into trying to download the software ( unsuccessfully ). I have tried single Wally into the main port... and also tried the dual Wally, with 1 in the main, and 1 in the secondary port.. I have NOT tried it your way, but still cannot get past the download portion

RE: Any satellite guru's out here? Dish-Wally-Pathway X2

Mine did that. Push Sat(on the side of the remote)/Skip Back/Recall/Skip Back. Each time? That is what i do now to skip out of the download sequence... How about hooking the OTA antenna into the sat box with their connection ?

Any satellite guru's out here? Dish-Wally-Pathway X2

I received my Dish Pathway X2 and 2 Wally's yesterday... So far I have over 5 hours clocked on the phone with Tech support with no Luck. I am able to get the channels, but the Wally's do not want to complete the download cycle? So everytime I shut off the Wally, they are back to the begining. It is frustrating, and so far nobody at tech support has resolved the issue.. They get stuck on the " Downloading Wally Software" screen... I can keep them like that, but it is not the proper way to operate...

RE: Resi Fridge draining batteries, please help.

Did the batteries come with the rig? If so they maybe really cheap and light. When I replaced my first battery after 1 year I was amazed at how light it was! That was my problem... 2 year old batteries that I paid extra for the better option were bad. Pulled them out with 1 hand, and no markings on them . .. Replaced with Lifeline

RE: Resi Fridge draining batteries, please help.

3 hours sounds way off. . . I have a residential fridge with a 1000 watt pure wave sine inverter and 2 group 31 sealed no name batteries and got way more than that. Those bats died so I just upgraded to 2 of the Lifeline group 31 AGM's . .

RE: Trailer length

He does not indicate what state he is in. But here is a common statement pulled from an on-line state towing laws information site. Indiana Trailer Dimension Laws Total length: 65 feet; trailer length: 40 feet; width: 102 inches; height: 13 feet 6 inches. Florida Trailer Dimension Laws Total length: 65 feet (excludes safety devices approved by the state); trailer length: 40 feet (excludes safety devices approved by the state); width: 102 inches (excludes mirrors and safety devices); height: 13 feet 6 inches. From another on-line site. Alabama Size limitations: Height, 13'6"; Width, 8'6"; trailer length, 40'; motorhome length, 45'; combined length 65' combined length 65'. Triple towing is not allowed. Best to check with local state DOTs to make verify what the laws are. the KEY IS - - COMBINED -65' EVERY State we travel in there are trailers larger than 40'.. I can almost guarantee you that NO LEO will get out a tape measure and verify that you are legal... I have seen some comb's that I had to wonder HOW THE HECK they made it that far, and the LEO's would just go on by . . THEY HAVE FAR MORE IMPORTANT THINGS TO DO

RE: The weight police

Got to agree with Russ, common sense, experience, awareness, reaction time/avoidance, can far out weigh number charts, when Mr. Murphy crosses. Jerry Yea, another believer in common sense, reaction time, experience, awareness...I am not saying it's ok to ignore the numbers....
