RE: New or Used?

Four new RVs. One in signature bought used. I threw away enough money in depreciation in the first four that I could have retired a lot wealthier.

RE: Pulling a Fifth Wheel problem, worried about my Dad...

Has he been on a scale? Being fat or skinny some how makes a difference?

RE: Generator gone!

Just leave mine sitting outside with no lock. They just think I must be some crazy SOB. Who wants to mess with crazy? Worked so far.

RE: RV antifreeze

I bought boiler anti freeze, rated for 100 below, several years ago at an RV close out for. $1 a gallon. Deluted by half for a net of 50ยข a gallon. Just ran out. If I wold have gone to the blow out method then I'd still have a bunch.

RE: Brake and over grease concerns, New 5th wheel

LCI not (LSI) is the axel type... So the finger pointing goes on... the dealer, the trailer manufacturer and LCI... I'm still waiting for them to get it together... I did find out the parts have been available and I could have gotten them in 5 days... now on the 25 day and waiting. I gave the dealer till the end of the month... some life time warranty, at this rate not worth the paper it's printed on. Can't see why there would be a wait at all. Don't know where you live but I bet I can find 4 places that carry the bearings, seals and linings within 3 miles where I live. Two places that carry at least half dozen complete backing plates. Fifth wheels aren't the only things that use those axles.

Being creative with coax perhaps you could run a second one under the rig or on the roof or in cabinets which would give you a low cost non SWM option. Bill, Can he use a SWM8 with his setup? SWM requires a power inserter or brick to supply the power needed for SWM. You're probably in the $100+ range. Ebay has kits that include LNB, splitter and power inserter for $25. Not sure if they have one for 18" dish.

RE: Brake and over grease concerns, New 5th wheel

I had two new Bighorns delivered over greased. Did not realize it was the problem with the first one, just thought brakes were not that good on fifth wheels. Found out the following year when I had it checked by an Indy garage they were over greased. Second trailer bad brakes took it back to dealer and two weeks later they said nothing wrong. Left lot and I hit the OS lever and no brakes. Just drove to the Indy dealer, he pulled wheels. Full of grease. I helped clean and install new seals. Left shop, hit OS lever and all four wheels skidded to a stop. I'm sure the transport guys just pump the heck out of the grease gun before they leave. Indy dealr said don't bother with the zerks, just pack the bearings by hand.

If you have been a DTV customer for awhile which it sounds like you have. They probably will have a pretty good deal to go HD. When I went to SWM and Genie they came and replace the SD recievers that I had with Genie clients. Put in a Genie, two clients, converted two HD receivers, converted the dish and pulled some new cables. Cost $50 service call.Had some problems, came out pulled more cables and changed out some equipment the same day I called them, at no charge.

RE: Autumn & Spring Equinox vs. Satellites

Not sure what you mean my a touchy Genie. If you mean the HD signal, I could understand that, but I have not found the Genie to be touchy compared to any other HD receiver. The regularly occurring solar outage should have not effect of any kind on a receiver, only the signal received. Had Direct since they bought out Primstar. Never had an outage from weather unless snow stuck to the dish. Probably lost signal 10 or more times just this year from rain storms. Service rep was out three times, last time the service rep said it happened to his since he installed the SWM with Genie. Said they were more sensitive to signal loss. Replaced most components and its better but sever thunderstorms still effect it with digital squares. Just repeating what he said and what I have expearanced.

RE: Autumn & Spring Equinox vs. Satellites

A little known fact. An equinox, both spring and autumn, will momentarily interrupt satellite communications. Bruce With the new touchy Genie it'll be even worse.
