RE: TST 507 REPEATER REGUIREMENT

Makes me wonder if there is an issue with your monitor since Mike said the monitor should "look" for a sensor for about an hour. Yours took nearly TWO hours. You lost a tire on a trip? Like, it fell completely off?? Did your TPMS catch that right away or not? Btw, do you use a repeater/booster? I bought my system last year(flow thru) and with the first trip out, 80 miles from home tire blew and monitor sounded, although we knew the tire blew even if we had not have the system. Because it was the first, I was watching the monitor closely. The tire exploded, was no heat buildup and no loss of air before. The monitor was working fine as I was watching temperature changes. On the way back, I notice readings stayed the same. Someone at TST said to use a repeater which I bought and everything has been fine since. The tire thumpers can keep on thumping. I like the system.

RE: How does DirectTV bill?

I appreciate the feedback, but am interested in more information on cost for service in an RV. How much do you pay? The RV would be another account like the one at home. Note the second paragraph, which is why we take a receiver from home. Can I get DNS in my RV? Print Email Recipient Email *Required Your Email *Required Your Name *Required Only residential accounts are available for DNS, but some mobile accounts might be eligible. According to federal regulations, we may offer DNS without screening for address eligibility only to certain types of recreational vehicles and commercial trucks. Boats and other marine vessels do not qualify for this special consideration. For definitions of eligible vehicles, please see the FCC website (item No. 18 of the Satellite Home Viewer Improvement Act of 1999 fact sheet). If your permanent residence account lists more than one receiver and one of these is located in your vehicle, you will no longer be able to "mirror" the services on the additional receiver in your vehicle. We will need to charge you the full monthly programming package price for this additional receiver, instead of the $6.50 a month programming mirroring fee you may be paying currently. Before we can add DNS to your service, federal law requires that you send us the following information: •Photocopy of your vehicle registration. •This Mobile Vehicle Affidavit Declaration of Intent form (please print and complete). •Photocopy of commercial driver's license (if you're requesting service for a commercial vehicle such as a tractor trailer).

RE: How does DirectTV bill?

We are interested in receiving the local channels where we are camped. One customer service rep tells me I need to set up a second account. Another rep told me all I need to do is get another receiver and pay an extra $6.50 per month. How does the billing system work for you and how much do you pay for DirectTV for your RV when if you have DirectTV at home? If you declare an account just for rv you will be paying double for the service instead of the 6.50 mirroring service. I have read some posts saying to call DTV and change your zip to where you are. I have asked them to do that but they say they can't. Good luck finding the CORRECT answer to your question. I take the second one with us but use antennae for locals if I want them. Not too often. You might be able to change zipcode to get locals or opt for feeds from the east or west coast that contain Fox, ABC. CBS, NBC etc. This entails DNS with which you would need DNS and a separate account for the RV plus another programming fee.

RE: LED Bulb Replacement

For anyone considering LED replacement just buy a couple from a vendor on ebay and try them. You will then know what type/size to use for the rest of them.

RE: What is the risk of exceeding payload?

So you wana be a test pilot? Explore the 'envelope' Go 'to the limit' - with your family aboard Don't know how one would ever know that 200 lbs caused an accident. Everyone seems to get excited about a little overweight but from what I see on the hiways 10-15mph over the speed limit is fine. Everyone has their thing-including me.

RE: Need your input

This "Black Mountain" has certainly become a legend it seems. So I don't know where that thing is. Is that an interstate that runs up and down it? How does it comp0asre to what i refer to as Saluda Hill/Mount on I 26 as you go north toward Ashville. CarlT described it pretty well. Saluda is a fairly straight up and down where Black Mountain is curvy up and down. I do believe they are both 6% grades. I would much rather do Saluda than Black Mountain.

RE: Buying New, but 2-3 Years Old Already

Considering you can get 30-35% off a new 2016 if you haggle and shop around, you should be able to get somewhere around 45-50% off the price of a comparable 2016 to make it a good deal 50% of a new one would not be enough of the new one is high retail.

RE: Need your input

I must have came down Black Mountain coming home from Jacksonville NC a couple of weeks ago on I-40. Don't remember anything special. Probably had the cruise set at 65 or 70. No big deal. Hope that was a sports car. No one in their right mind would go down that mountain at 70 on cruise even in a car.

RE: A great reason to check everything B-4 a trip

Checking TP is a must! Definitely! I hate running out of toilet paper.

RE: Mammoth Cave, KY

Diamond cavern is much nicer than Mammoth. Try to take a tour there also.

RE: Black Mountain whooped my butt !!

Sorry not 7,000' more like 2,862'. I drive that road every 2 weeks. 2862' sounds about right. Not trying to correct anyone but I was told that it is Old Fort but everyone calls it Black Mountain. NCHauler may know more about that. Last week saw a semi trailer in one of the runaway ramps. That trailer was destroyed from going over those sand humps. Those are baby mountains compared to the western USA. Having been out west in my younger days, you are certainly correct about that which is why I chose a diesel. Hope to be back out there in a couple of years.

RE: Insurance & Teen Driver?

Yup, excluded driver.... won't effect your rates at all. That's correct, but opens you hope to big liability possibility.

RE: Boom goes my fresh water tank....

Although I would commend the dealer and yourself for extra bracing, etc. I would also be slightly concerned with the affect of this bracing. 1) if that tank can shift around it may eventually wear through at any point of rubbing on those angle brackets or any little bumps/bolts on the brackets.. Looks like the dealer did a good job and used wide brackets but I sure wouldn't want to take responsibility for say a 1" angle iron "helping" the situation instead of making it worse. 2) Personally, I would never draw water from the bottom of any tank.. Too much sediment which will inevitably get into your pump and system and cause who-knows-what problems further down the line (pun intended). To each their own but there could be some downside to these repairs. Posted By: minnow on 07/15/15 03:55pm Whenever I read the posts on this subject, most replies are the same; why not more bracing under the tank. When I saw the "L" brackets on my first 5er, my thoughts were the same. Talked to dealer and he said about the same thing SabreCanuck wrote: Although I would commend the dealer and yourself for extra bracing, etc. I would also be slightly concerned with the affect of this bracing. 1) if that tank can shift around it may eventually wear through at any point of rubbing on those angle brackets or any little bumps/bolts on the brackets..

When I read replies on this subject, most are the same: Why not more support underneath the tanks. I thought the same when I looked under the bottom of my first trailer. Talked to dealer who told me about the same thing that SabreCanuck wrote. I carry enough water to use the facilities when on the road. If I ever need to carry the 70 gals I will. Perhaps someone could show a picture of a factory setup with braces underneath. Most that I have seen use the "L" brackets on the lips of the tank. And maybe we should thank SabreCanuck for giving a reply that may help we a different view of the situation.

RE: Health Care Costs

IS that the total premium or only after subsidies? Subsidies only apply to the silver plans which all have a $1500 deductible & high copay. I am very curious as to what ACA plan you have...... That is after subsidies. Premium is actually a little over $700. Silver plan under BCBS of NC. And yes that is $700 MAX OUT OF POCKET including prescriptions. Sounds like westernrvparkowner has done as much research as I have. Income levels determine subsidies and one should understand what "income" is for getting ACA subsidies. As for financing ACA, do a search. I don't make the rules but like anything else, understanding them can sometimes help. steveh27, Last year there was actually a $O premium, $O deductible silver plan at the lowest eligible income level. Wasn't there this year and possibly since states setup their own exchanges, it may have bee and NC only thing. Unfortunately, come December, I have to get this thing called Medicare.

RE: Health Care Costs

Medicare is not Obamacare and is much better - see my post above. The US should have gone to medicare for all, not obamacare which is a gift to the insurance companies. Depends on which side of the fence you are sitting. My ACA premium is $49 and MOOP is $700. I've had over $35,000 of medical bills this year and more coming, all I've paid is the $700. Changing to Medicare in a few months. Medicare + supplement will be over $300 a month. And the "free" part of Medicare costs the government somewhere in the range $400 a month. I am just happy I was able to retire and still afford heath insurance and do some traveling.

RE: Stray Voltage?

Last year, while washing RV, felt a tingle when washing the bumper. Meter showed 15v AC. My RV was connected to the house with an extension cord and right away saw black on one of the leads in connector. Replace connector, problem solved. If using one of these connectors at home, might be something to check.
