RE: Direct TV and on board antenna

Why not connect both to TV and switch inputs with tv remote? Because the Standard Def direct TV box connects via the TV coax IN. There would be no coax IN connection available for the off air antenna. Although I may be incorrect. -Tom

RE: essexcredit charges $459 loan fee

Everything is negotiable. Object and stay on them. TIP: Go in about 10 minutes before they close. They are really vulnerable then. -Tom

RE: Direct TV and on board antenna

DTV's SD receivers should have a second coax connector on the back labeled "off air in". Hook the off air antenna coax to this connector. Then when you turn off the receiver the off air antenna signal is sent to the TV. If there is no "off air in" connector on the back you'll have to use an A/B switch in the coax that goes from the sat receiver to the TV. -Tom

RE: High Pressure Propane Hose

Most compressed gas (argon, oxygen, propane, etc) suppliers can make a hose to your desired length. -Tom

RE: Just a Thought...

I would sell the FW and TV and move to something that I could pay for cash. Then with no payments I would save my $$$ for a motorhome. -Tom

RE: New to dry camping

If your battery becomes low just plug into your tow vehicle and run the engine. Your engine will charge your RV battery. Or use a set of jumper cables from the tow vehicle battery to the RV battery with the engine running.

RE: Medicare and traveling south

I don't use regular Medicare. My wife and I have a private Advantage plan (Blue Cross Blue Shield). See part C in you Medicare booklet. I actually receive $6 a month back from SS because my Advantage Plan cost SS less than regular medicare. When I turned 65 I set everything up online while in FL, but my home SS office, in PA, did require my signature. I had to go to a FL SS office and give them my signature. They faxed my signature to my Pennsylvania home SS office. If I recall correctly you have to set this up 90 days before you turn 65. So you may be able to set everything up before going south. My eyes were opened when we went to the FL SS office. I expected to see a bunch of old people signing up for SS. What I saw was mostly foreign language speaking women with children signing up for some sort of SS benefits. My wife and I were the only ones there for SS. The women and their children occupied all the chairs. My wife and I had to stand for over an hour. It was so chaotic they had a uniformed guard in the waiting area.

RE: 50 amp service

Just be sure he did a 50A RV and not a 50A home connection. Otherwise that favor could cost you a bundle ??? Why?

RE: Yahoo mail . . . . unbelieveable!!!

I had been happily using Yahoo! mail for many years, but I am about ready to ditch it. Numerous outages for many hours at a time over the last days, weeks and months. :S:M Why not use your ISP's email server???

RE: Buckee's Road stop

I think if I had any input I would have added 4 more pumps to make 100! It's a number thing. ON EDIT....I looked at the photos on their website. This is very, very impressive. Very!

RE: What the Heck is this

Goes on the floor under the slide out to help the slide from wearing out the carpet. Should have been 2 of them. This is correct! It's a Teflon slide strip that attaches under one of your slides. -Tom

RE: two questions

I thought the tow/haul dropped the transmission out of overdrive into the drive 1:1 gear. No shift points are changed. Is this correct?? I had a 1994 Vectra on a Ford F53 chassis. On the end of the gear shift stalk was a button, This button dropped the transmission out of overdrive into drive. Was this the same as tow/haul???

RE: Workhorse 8.1 liter poor fuel mileage

I have a 2005 Itasca Suncruiser 38R on a W24 chassis. I bought it new, a factory order. I weigh 23,200#s loaded. 32,100 miles. I towed a Honda Civic about half of these miles. I've averaged 6.97 mpg since new. I mostly keep my interstate driving speed at 60-63 mph. I use cruise control. -Tom

RE: Interesting stop at a Cracker Barrel in Arkansas

My son was a Cracker Barrel manager years ago. Corporate instructed store managers to use the terminology as you were told. If you ask the manager if you can park they were instructed to state, "I can't tell you that you can park, but I won't ask you to leave." This verbiage, supposedly, relieved Cracker Barrel of any legal liability, if a problem developed. I park at Cracker Barrels, but arrive late in the evening after the dinner rush.

RE: long road trip

If she wants to watch NetFlix movies this is what I would do. Load up a couple USB drives with movies before leaving home.
