RE: may switch from DirecTV to Dish

Never had Direct TV but have Had Dish since they began operations. Never have had a complaint. Customer service is usually good especially if you ask to speak with a senior tech or manager. I am tired of the high price ($159 per month) we pay for the package and services we chose. We get almost all of the channels offered. Lately though I have been using streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Vudu and Amazon Prime or the streaming services from the broadcast stations(most recently Fox Now). All of this is done over the internet which sometimes works using an RV Park WiFi. As technology improves, we may not need Dish. These services cost about $15.00 per month plus internet service cost of $45

RE: Exposed Battery

Most farm tractors from the 1960s and earlier had exposed batteries. Our 1978 Nomad TT had an exposed battery until I built a new frame to hold two batteries and added battery boxes mostly to make it harder to steal the batteries. Older batteries probably held up to the elements better, the materials used for batteries these days I'm not so sure about. I would use a cover of some sort.

RE: Suspension Question

With my spring bars I could raise the back of the truck almost to the point where there was no load on the springs. Of course it took a long pipe as a lever to get the spring bars to lock in place. I only did this as a test once just to see if I could. So try adjusting the spring bars tighter to see if you can lift it some.

RE: RV Storage - best options?

Because we are in a large city the only viable option for us is the local self storage type places. We stored in 3 different facilities First One our trailer was broken into luckily not much damage or goods stolen Second One our trailer was backed into twice. Again not much damage. Third no problems except rent has gone from $100 per month to $327 in 10 years with no improvements to justify the increase.

RE: Replacement Tires

You might have better luck going to Light Truck (LT) type tires instead.

RE: Replacement beds?

There are manufacturers that will make mattresses to the size you need. Some are inexpensive. Do a search for RV mattresses on Google you'll see several resources listed.

RE: Selling our 5th Wheel--Consignment

I've sold several trailers as well as other vehicles myself. It can be a pain but all the money is yours. With the recent problems you hear about regarding Craigslist deals gone bad...keep in mind it is very few when compared to the number of deals daily. I would have a friend or my DW stay hidden and watch the deal. Work out a signal that would alert her to call the police if something is wrong. Or have a couple of large friends with me when doing the deal. Be sure to have the buyer sign a document indicating the sale was "as is / where is" No warranty implied. Waiting for the buyer to come up with financing or cash can be frustrating as well. I've only had one person that had to get financing all of the others were cash sales. If you price your RV a little lower than the market you will sell it quicker. Several problems with consignment...first the commission can be high 20-30% or more > Get what they plan to do to market your RV in writing and check to make sure they are working the plan > Recently a consignment dealer went belly up and the folks who had RVs with them never got paid for sold RVs and the RVs left on the lot are tied up in litigation.

RE: Class C vs TT: driving and setting up camp..(long)

In the old days a MH was easier to setup than a TT. The TT setup would take an extra half hour or so when compared to a MH. Now days, it's pretty much an even playing field... If you get a TT equipped with auto levelers. Hitching and unhitching is easier now with the electric tongue jack. As far as electric, water and sewer connections the MH & TT are the same. So the only real difference is the hitching and unhitching time wise. An extra 10 minutes for the TT. Towing can be learned and becomes second nature with practice. There are towing classes available; do an online search or attend a large RV show. I take my new trailers to a big empty parking lot and practice, including parking in tight spots (use boxes or cones to mark the space) and panic stops. A 25ft TT with a crewcab pickup, suburban type truck or fullsized van would be a perfect combination for your family. Once you get camp setup you have the tow vehicle to use for getting around/ sight seeing.

RE: Long Term Storage: Can it be done??

If you decide to sell it, I would hire an RV detailer to spruce it up. Get it looking as best as possible outside and inside. Don't pay attention to the dealer's appraisal. Take a look at RVtrader.com, Ebay and Craigslist at similar MHs for pricing help. Price yours at the highend to test the market. Publish the price in your ads. If you get calls from regular RV buyers (not dealers or speculators) have them come by and take a look at it. If no calls then start lowering the price in small increments tell the calls start coming in.

RE: Cleaning up the mess of battery cables.

I had always thought of doing something like this.

RE: Trailer got broken into. Thief totally destroyed the door.

At one of the storage lots we had our RV at, the thieves used pry bars to bend up the lower corner of each door enough to reach in and undo any locks if the door had no window. If the door had a window (like ours) they smashed the window and reached in to undo the deadbolt and door lock. Luckily we were at the end of the line, I guess they ran out of carrying space, so they only took a couple of ski vests and a portable radio.

RE: Used Class C, how do I price one?

http://www.rvtrader.com/ Use RV Trader.com to search nationwide to compare the price of same and similar Class C's. Then use all of the research suggested above to come up with a price range and offer a very low price to start with so you will be sure to get the lowest price. Only go up $500 with each counter offer until you hit your maximum price you want to pay based upon your research.

RE: Satellite Question

If there is a splitter/switch either near the sat dish or receiver it may be bad. I have a 622 HD receiver and it requires a switch between the sat dish coax and the receiver. I've had two go bad and cause the problem you describe.
