RE: Using Dish Tailgator cube

Bumpy, the app name is dishformyrv. Works wonders in the midwest and the eastcoast, but the sats in the west are so high in the sky we couldn't find them with the app.

RE: Question for the planners?

We schedule an extra day every third day on getting somewhere stretches. When we are there we usually schedule an extra day or two at each destination to allow for changes or bad weather. Extra time built in here and there allows for some adjustments if needed with a minimal number of campgrounds to actually change dates without disrupting the rest of the schedule. We just returned from a 7,600 mile, 23 state, 5 month long, 34 campground trip with all reservations made in advance. Made a few add a day or two, subtract a day or two changes along the way, but didn't change the schedule really much at all. We don't do boondocking so want to be assured we have a spot and know where we are going each day.

RE: How do you know you're towing too much weight?

3100 is nothing. Start worrying if you are continually running over 5500. You will probably never even get to 5000.

RE: Finding a campground

I use the Good Sam Travel Directory and frequently stay in KOA's. Same here.

RE: 211 dish reciever

Also must be USB 2.0 compatible. We have a 2TB Seagate 3.0 that is 2.0 compatible. Works like a charm. We have the 211Z receiver.

RE: Using Dish Tailgator cube

I know in the morning where I am going. I call Dish at 7:00am, tell them I have a Tailgater and ask them to change my service address AND to reset my locals to the new location. I keep the representative on the line until the old locals disappear in the guide and the new ones come in. Pack up everything for the trip. When I set up later in the day everything is ready for the new location. No re-booting just to get new locals guide data. I have never changed my zip code on the dish itself or done 611 pointing. When I plug it in I change the state if necessary and complete setup. I just returned from a 23 state trip and never had a problem. I have a stand alone PAYG plan so maybe that is different than most people.

RE: Long trip tow vehicle maintenance

On my last two long trips I had my truck serviced in Colorado Springs, Moab, Brookville IN, Belfast ME and Manchester TN. Not one dealer tried to upsell me anything.

RE: Long trip tow vehicle maintenance

I thought it was odd that I had over 6K miles and the oil change light did not come on. About 4K was in tow haul mode. I usually go 5000 miles between changes. My F-150 e-boost has 6 quarts of oil, maybe that is why. If your Ford is like my Ford the OLM doesn't care if you are towing or not. It is simply based on 7500 miles.

RE: hercules power str tires (load range E)

I put this tire on my trailer back in April. Put 7600 miles on them this summer and they still look new. I went to a large local tire/repair shop that services trucks, MH's and RV's and this is the only trailer tire they sell.

RE: Long trip tow vehicle maintenance

We just returned from an Arizona to Maine trip visiting 20 states over 5 months. I usually change my oil myself, but while on the road I schedule changes at Ford dealers along the way.

RE: GM overstates 2014 tow ratings by almost 25%

I'm glad GM stepped up to the plate and you got it worked out. Best of luck with the new truck.

RE: Hanging items on an RV Door

Ours came with a metal 18'' towel bar on the door and we added a 2nd half way down. No drilling, just screwed into the door. We hang our wet towels while traveling and no problems after 16.5K miles.

RE: Health Insurance

We had a BCBS PPO plan in Indiana for four years prior to ACA. Never used it. BCBS was the only insurer in my county under ACA and offered only HMO plans. We knew (at least hoped) we would be moving to Arizona in the spring so didn't think too much about it, figured we would get the PPO after moving. While house hunting in AZ my wife had a heart attack. The blockage cleared on it's own after we got to the hospital and they have no idea why she was struck. Anyway, that was back in March and we are now just getting the final bills paid under the ACA emergency clause. Was in network. They denied every claim until I hounded them about the life threatening situation portion of the policy. Was on the phone with them again last week to try to get the very last claim resolved. I owe the doctor the money (deductible) but they just need to send the paperwork to knock it down to their contracted price. Now we have the AZBlue PPO. Wouldn't you know it while traveling this summer she had an emergency appendectomy (in network hospital) at the end of June in NY state. BCBS AZ promptly paid all the claims, less deductible of course. Both insurance policies were with BCBS and I swear it is like working with two completely different companies. We are also new at this since it is the first time either of us have ever been to the hospital.

RE: Las Vegas - Sams Town RV & Casino

We stayed at Arizona Charlie's last fall, was 32 bucks for FHU site with 70 foot concrete pad. Spaces were close together of course but was well worth it.

RE: Equalizer Adjustment questions round #3

I am restoring all but 160 lbs on my setup, have towed 16.5K miles and wouldn't change a thing on mine. 8 washers is the max, but I would stop tinkering with it and do some towing instead.

RE: Thoughts on a used Ford tow vehicle...??

Wow, that's a great find. Congrats Kevin. I love my F250, I'm sure you will love that truck just as much.

RE: US 2 From Bangor to Bethlehem,NH

There was some construction just before Skowhegan as mentioned above. Otherwise was an easy trip from Maine to Vermont. A little slow going in parts of Maine with a bunch of towns but the road is in good shape.

RE: How good will it get?

Tires getting worn in. I got my best mileage ever last winter with 55K on my tires. Replaced them (with the exact same tire) and immediately MPG went down. Now at 72K and mileage is going back up again.

RE: Need help with the numbers on the weights and such

Your WDH will transfer about 150-175 lbs of that tongue weight to your trailer axles so your payload hit will be reduced by that amount. As myself and a few other people have stated 6K dry maximum is where you want to be so 5941 is right there.

RE: You're not going to believe this!!

We are going to be putting a screen up behind the refrigerator panel, the hot water heater panel and the furnace exhaust. Those screens were the first 'accessories' we bought when we got our new TT. Those mud daubers will homestead anywhere, even on the tires under the covers! X2.
