RE: Satellite TV. Service

DirecTV uses spot beams, so if you travel a state or two away, you will loose locals. Some DirecTV locals are broadcast nationally. NY networks, LA networks and CW from DC and CW from San Diego. I receive all these locals, CBS, ABC, NBS, CW, FOX & PBS anywhere in the USA and most of Canada. Miss a broadcast at 8, catch it at 11. -Tom

RE: Winter battery care

-10 I would pull them and keep on a trickle charger in my garage or basement or other somewhat heated area.

RE: Wyoming Wind Indicator.

This is no joke. Here are the photos to prove it. On top of Mt. Washington in NH the summit building is actually chained to the ground. We were there in 1976. Parked the trailer at the bottom and drove the car up. -Tom, W3TLN Not my photos. http://realisticcookingideas.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/mt-washington-weather-2.jpg height=600 width=600 http://realisticcookingideas.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/mt-washington-weather-1.jpg?w=1280 height=600 width=600 http://realisticcookingideas.files.wordpress.com/2013/10/mt-washington-weather-3.jpg height=600 width=600

RE: Blue Ox vs ???

I like and use a Roadmaster Sterling All-Terrain. I like the channels guides for the cable and wiring. I also like the almost completely hidden brackets on the towed vehicle. Plus the fact that the Roadmaster has a bar connecting both ends of the tow bar, which makes it stronger, IMHO. No pins to connect bar to car. Just slide in and turn a quarter turn to lock. http://roadmasterinc.com/img/sterling_callouts.png http://roadmasterinc.com/img/ez_bracket.jpg Here is my old 2001 Honda with the almost hidden brackets. http://people.consolidated.net/tomnagy/100_0621sm.JPG

RE: O.K. to dump graywater in National Parks!

I don't mind seeing suds on the streams and rivers. Reminds me of a "head" on a beer. -Tom

RE: Charging RV batteries with TV

Your truck may have a space for a 2nd battery, many do, under the hood. If it does place a battery there. When you drive to the store, etc. it'll charge.

RE: Fridge question regarding leveling

RV absorbsion units must be level within the criteria the OEM of the refer states, usually within 3 degrees. AND, it makes no difference on LP or 120. they must be level. What happens when ascending or descending an 4° to 8° grade??? -Tom

RE: We are off the road for a spell.....

Wow, hoping for an easy repair. Damage to the filter is the reason I've never went to the 2 qt filter on my 8.1. -Tom, W3TLN

RE: pet fees?

We wintered at Rainbow RV Resort in Frostproof, Fl. They provide fenced areas for your dogs. You cannot walk your dog down the street to the pet area. You must carry them by auto, golf cart, or in your arms. Everyone staying there like the rules. No poop or pee on the sides of the road. :B I'm going to look into staying here next winter.

RE: New tires

If it were me and I was selling next year, I would not replace the tires. If next years purchaser bulks about the 8 year old tires offer him a couple thousand and he can buy new tires.

RE: Best way to charge battery with free-standing generator??

I would just start the van engine and charge the battery. At ~100 amps the battery would charge quickly. And no gas can and generator to worry about.

RE: Satellite TV. Service

I suspect you called a "bogus" phone number for Dish.

RE: Will that ladder and roof hold a 300-pounder?

Considering the consequences, I would not climb the rear ladder. BTW, I have a few pounds on you.
