RE: Process of elimination

if you use it for DSL interente get a "Dry Line" (no dial tone) way less expensive Please explain the "dry line" to me since I pay $10 for a dial tone and just internet, no phone.

RE: More fifth wheel questions.

No difference in fuel mileage but much easier reaching and climbing into bed of truck.

RE: DirecTV Error 775 (SAGA CONTINUES)

Very strange! After typing the above went to watch tv, said looking for signal, went to menu and it had reset to swm. Switch back to multi-switch and its now downloading guide. No power outage or anything.

RE: DirecTV Error 775 (SAGA CONTINUES)

Don't know anything about the Traveler but my receiver, when the power goes off, will reset to swm and I need to reset to multi-switch when powered back on. Either a 775 or 771 error.

RE: Buying a truck from up north??

Having lived in NE PA, I would never buy a used vehicle from "up north".

RE: HDMI splitters with DirecTV

Copy protection aka HDCP is the only reason I could see a splitter not working. Do some research(reading) on the internet before doing anything. One of my tvs is affected by the the HDCP problem. DTV's solution it to go back to component cables.

RE: Total Eclipse of the Sun will jam CG's!

I'll have to find a shoe box and do the pin hole thing. If you want to safely see the real actual eclipse size before the live event, take a look at the moon at nighttime anytime within the next few days. Or spend $1 for a pair of solar glasses and look at the sun.

RE: Total Eclipse of the Sun will jam CG's!

A few nearby streetlights won't make very much difference when you're looking directly at the SUN during most of the eclipse Tried on my solar glasses the other day. Stuck my nose right up to a 100 watt bulb and couldn't see a thing. Surprizing how small the sun really is when you see it.

RE: Fifth wheel damage and insurance

The more I read posts like these the more I realize I must have been pretty lucky years ago when my insurance company paid me for my trailer that was totaled due to water damage delamination.

RE: Directv receiver settings

" You set your antenna elevation, azimuth & skew to the location, but the receiver does not change." There are setting that you MAY or MY NOT have to change. If home is HD and camping is SD dish you need to change that setting. Also you may need to change the setting for multi-dish or SWM. And, as someone said, practice at home first.

happy camper

I must have made someone a happy camper today, had to cancel Memorial week reservation at Trailer Village Grand Canyon. Hats off to them and Gouldings at Monument Valley for making cancelations hassle free.

RE: To Tote a Tote or not to Tote

Took the wheels off mine, put it in the pickup bed, and use a Flojet to pump it up.

converter or battery

Getting the fifth wheel ready. DC lights bright and then quit working. Open electrical panel and tapped on it and lights came back. A minute later lights went back off. Tried tightening a few screws and wire nut lights came back on. Went back off a minute later. They do not dim, are either bright or off. I know the battery is bad but shouldn't the converter run the DC lights? I did hear the converter fan run a couple of times. Lights work great with external battery charged hooked up. I cannot pull the converter out far enough to check for loose wires in back. Any thoughts will appreciated. Will be buying a new battery tomorrow but not sure how to check the converter and hate to discharge a new battery.
