RE: Trouble receiving directv channels with hr24 reciever

Has the access card been activated?
2oldman 09/25/16 08:40pm Technology Corner

This is a CW issue, and really not for public consumption.

RE: Cleaning Graphics

I use any cleaning-type car wax. You have to redo it often.

RE: I-Phone Sat Finding App

When I move my phone left/right the sats move about half as much as I move. x2 Same with SatelliteAR. I rely on my magnetic compass almost all the time.

RE: Converted Stove to push button ignition

Not that this matters now, but, seems odd that stove would come sans igniters. That location is where mine is, and it looks to be the same Atwood stove, and has plenty of room.

RE: I-Phone Sat Finding App

SatelliteAR. The elevation and azimuth given by the receiver is usually enough.

RE: Best cell and data phone plans

gotta love auto-correct. Low data cost comes at the price of questionable coverage and speed. I'm not sure how Verizon handles a Canadian phone in the USA. I don't think "rooming" charges exist anymore, at least not with Verizon. The 'best' plan is one you can afford and live with.

RE: DirecTV self powered setup meter recommendations?

Professional or not, decent meters are expensive. And you already have one in your tuner. Good luck.

RE: Electrical surge protector - Whole house type?

Many RV surge protectors also have low-voltage protection, which is far more likely than surges.I guess you could check the voltage at your site first.Just make sure you do that when everyone is running air.

RE: Solar. What Can It Do?

You are a power hog! :) We spent very little time in the trailer, I guess that is why we never have a shortage of power with 200 watts.I am. I spend time outside too, but not on crappy rainy days. I do a lot of TV recording when I can so that if I'm in trees or just overnighting I have plenty to watch when I don't want to set up the dish.

RE: Solar. What Can It Do?

Thanks, very thorough. What's not mentioned yet is the condition of batteries when boondocking. Older and harder-used ones lose ah capacity, requiring more solar time. Colder batteries don't perform as well. It's difficult to ever get 100% charge into them like I can on the grid. Sure, you can if you don't use much power, but that's not my style. I don't conserve propane or water either.

RE: Solar. What Can It Do?

I'm from the part of the country that would say/ask something like: "I do not understand how you are making that work, could you please provide some details to help me understand?"That had already been asked with no response. If I remove the living in a tent statement, would that make you happy?

RE: Solar. What Can It Do?

The people think you can not get by with 200 watts are totally wrong. If you want to watch TV for 8 hours a day, listen to the sound system, run your Kuerig etc then that is a totally different scenario.Of course you can 'get by', and yes, TV on all day is a totally different story. Different stories are what, I think, people asking about solar need. Thanks for your details. I'm a power hog. My tv and Directv tuner are on all day recording, not watching. Electric coffee in the morning, bits of MW use, furnace, mattress heater, radio.. etc. I like to be almost as I am at home. With 800+ watts of solar I still need generator time due to cloudy conditions or trees. The sun is at a lower angle now, so I'm getting maybe 350w instead of anything close to 700 or so. With just 200w it would be a pittance amount of charging.

RE: Ice cubes to clean black tank

I wouldn't know if my bt needed cleaning! C rap goes in and c rap comes out. The consensus is ice doesn't work.

RE: DirecTV self powered setup meter recommendations?

I have used every method you can think of, to aim the dish. How about the Swift Hitch camera method?

RE: Solar. What Can It Do?

The only way this makes any sense to me is that that 'no generator' only works if your power usage is very low, all the time. Limited furnace, limited TV, no mw, no coffee. Like living in a tent.He said he is connected to shore power in the winter.I'm not sure if it is just me reading posts the wrong way but it sure seems like folks are very critical of others around here.It's a veiled challenge for the poster who made that statement to supply some details. I've been solar long enough to know what it can and can't do. That's what this thread is about. Tell us how you do it.
