RE: DirecTV slimline setup question

Not likely. Depending on which LNB model it coild be a SWM model requiring power from a power supply. Even if he has it powered I do not believe you can tap into it. For less than 200 dollars why not buy your own?

RE: Newport, Oregon

Sawyers landing is about 5 miles up the bay. Right on the bay with nice views, good place to rent a boat and traps for crabbing.

RE: Truck Reviews from up North

Just like any region of the US market share really comes down to dealer network. Several really good dealers that carry the same brand and thst brand will be more popular in thst region.

RE: refrigerator not working

I assume you got no or a poor PDI. What type of refer? Absorbition or residential? Lights din because they are 12VDC and your converter cycles to maintain your house battery.

RE: Camp stove vs Camp grill

Buy a Weber Q series and a Coleman propane stove and be done with it.

READ MY LIPS!!!! You will NEVER EVER tow a trailer dry. You have to account for food, clothes, water, battery, propane only to name a few things. Base your towability on the trailers GVWR and decide if you can handle that much. If not, look for smaller lighter trailer. While you may never see the gross weight it will always give you a safety margin. BTW, when looking at vehicle towing ratings, remember to load the vehicle up with family and everything you will pack for a trip, go to the scales and subtract the scaled weight from the vehicles GVWR. That will give you how much tongue weight you can handle.

RE: Latest in Hot Spot devices?

Options? Everybody offers options. The key IMHO is do you have coverage where you travel? Verizon has by far the best coverage followed by AT&T.

RE: Going from two 12 volt to Four 6 volt???

Think of it this way. Two 6 volt batteries equals 12 volts Battery 1 negative terminal to battery 2 positive terminal. Reading battery 1 pos to battery 2 neg you now have 12 volts. There are lots of diagrams on how to wire them on the net.

RE: Issues towing 36 or 37 foot TT?

Can it be done? Yes, depending on hitch and tongue weights it can be done. But honestly towing that much is going to be a strain compared to a similar sized fifth wheel.

RE: Best and Worst Feature of your truck

Unreal power even for a 2007 6.7L Cummins. Tows like a dream. Can pass what ever I want even going up hill.

RE: Refrigerator and/or sink and/or range in slide?

Refer,stove and microwave in the slide. Not one problem, unless you count the flexible gas and electric support needing replaced.

RE: pros & cons of waste pumps with macerators

You dont. Mascerators are only needed to dump the tanks when there is no convenient sewer opeining that you can use. They then allow you to pump uphill and onto a toilet for instance.

RE: tires

Wear on the outside is indictive of either overloading or bent axles. Get it weighed first. Then install new tires and find an alignment shop to check/fix the alignment.

RE: Slide topper/awning repair in Phoenix

You can buy awning replacements reasonable from several online dealers. Smaller slide toppers should take maybe 30 minutes each to R&R. Large slide rooms maybe 45 minutes. There are lots of youtube videos on how to do it.

RE: Trailer Weight vs Truck Capacity (I know, I know....)

GET THE PROPER TOOL FOR THE JOB! Yes I was screaming it. There is a huge difference between the two vehicles. 1500/150 you get likely P metric tires, lower rater frame,springs,tires,wheels. 250/2500 will get you full flotaing axle, bigger brakes, LT truck tires, beafier frame. Basically a much more stable towing platform. There are a select few 140/1500s that are listed to tow your trailer, but. Yes, but, but what happens when you discover this monster trailer does not handle like you think it should and decide to upgrade to something else? Now you not only want more trailer but to handle it you need to spend big bucks on another truck. Buy a truck to handle your next trailer now. Modern 2500s ride and handle nearly as well as 1500s from 5 years ago, so you reasoning is simply not there.

RE: R V Driving School

Lots of posts on this subject. Call a truck driving school and see of an instructor would give you some lessons.

RE: Suburban water heater

Outside temps? When it gets cold propane does not flow well. So its possible your seeing a low flow situation. That or water is freezing in the regulator.
