RE: I Phone IOS 8

Put it on the iPad. Thought they would update the ridiculous keyboard. Nope! Far as I'm concerned they screwed up Safari. Rest of it is just frills that I could care less about. In retirement mode or I would get the newest Galaxy. But, would not trade my current ipad for the prior Galaxy.

RE: What Garmin GPS Model?

I went cheap, as I normally do and went with a refurbished Garmin 50 with life time maps. Works well except it has no user preference. If you always leave town by one route it will always send you out on its own route. It does correct after you get going but it is a minor annoyance.

RE: Directv Hook-up problem

I thought you had to have two cables for a DVR prior to SWM. Wrong info again?

RE: Freightliner part - unavailable

How bad is it leaking? If you don't want to fix it on the road can you just keep the fluid topped off until you get home? In most cases that is what I would try to do. If you don't make it you are no worse off then you are now. I think that's my best bet, CC. I think I'll buy a case or two of ATF and just keep checking it on the way home and hope for the best. Thank you all for your help and suggestions. They are very much appreciated! :? Confused. A case or two of ATF ain't no small leak. Need that much you probably aren't going to fix it with a seal kit.

RE: Freightliner part - unavailable

You said it was a small leak, deal with it until you can get a pump. If you are truly that paranoid deal with the price. However, I bet a 99.5% chance that it can be repaired. If you still don't like the odds don't know what else to say.

RE: Keystone and warranty work

I was the warranty writer for an ag equipment dealer. One year the IRS came and did an audit. Said we should have collected sales tax from the manufacture for the parts used on the claims. Never heard such a thing but the dealer paid the lost sales tax. I'll believe anything after that.

RE: how do i find the sd menu on the h24-700

DTV guy told me HD receiver would not work on a SD dish, but an SD receiver would work on an HD dish. Wrong info?

RE: Residential fridge pros/cons

Beer in the forties? Ain't taking the chance. Five RV fridges, never a problem.

RE: Using a stand alone smart phone as a GPS

I have an ap just for measuring the speed of my boat on my phone, no speedometer. If i forget and leave it on it drains the battery fast.

RE: Rant about Rants

I let the teacher worry about the formality of it all. Basically I could give a rats behind how someone's writing is, not my job.

RE: Learned something new about camping....

Like you - we have learned to avoid camping under oak trees. We went to CG in Vermont one time that was absolutely FULL of oak trees - couldn't find a spot that wasn't under one. We wondered what they were thinking. :S We left. Rain is loud enough on our aluminum roof. Acorns are worse. Pine cones are downright scary. Then explain your signature.

RE: Learned something new about camping....

Got under a nice shade tree one year. Don't think I ever got all the sap off before we traded.

RE: Blow Lines or AntiFreeze, or both?

Just wish I was an insurance agent. Would make a fortune on all this "cheap insurance".
