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.

RE: Careful all... tailgate thieves are out and about

... I'd probably be looking at spending $300 for a black el cheapo louvered tailgate, When they steal my $300 el cheapo louvered tailgate, I'll have to put my unused factory tailgate back on.

RE: Killer rain 1, Satellite 0

Sometimes SD will come in when HD doesn't.

RE: Fifth wheel too heavy for my truck?

Load her up and go. Yes, you will perhaps be over based solely on GVW, but you'll be well within rear axle and tire capacity. Having basically the same truck, the above about sums it up. Will be way under RAWR.

RE: Fifth wheel backing

...but it seems like it takes forever for the input to, well, input. Yes, and you probably cut it more and when it does start turning it is way too much, too fast. When this starts to happen stop and pull ahead a bit in the opposite direction you where turning. Of course the best way is practice, practice, etc but this should help in the meantime.

RE: The dreaded potty burp, can't eliminate it

My old fifth used to do this. It had a curved pipe and when getting full it seemed like the tissue would start backing up in the pipe. It would burp and when this happened I know it was time to dump although if I "pushed" it like you did, I would get a couple more days.
