RE: Cell phone signal

DW's Apple does not get a signal when my Android gets good reception. Lots of online retailers like Solid Signal offer a variety of amplifiers. I bought one three years ago and with its external antenna it boosts the signal well.

Garmin Dezl 560LMT works great for me.

RE: Car Stereo Accessory Wiring Connection?

Get a mini STSP switch from Radio Shack for the constant wire. That way you simply need to flip the switch. Of course you will have to reset the clock and station presets.

RE: Hwy 2 from Spokane to Everett

Beautiful drive, but slow and hilly

RE: Tire failure on trailer

ST tires are your problem. There are only two semi decent brands. Salune and Maxxis.

RE: 5th wheels

My Cedar Creek is 10 years old and has been flawless since new. Would I buy one again? In a heart beat.

RE: Trading from DP to fifthwheel

IMHO you will be disappointed with the fit and finish of either of those two compared to your Monaco with an 83K sticker either of those should sell for around 70 75K meaning dealer is offering you around 65K for your MH. Is that a good deal? Its your money, so you have to decide. When you add 65K for a dually truck your still into this over 70K.

RE: Wingard Traveler

My SK3005 was shipped from the west coast to Winegard. Cost me nearly a hundred dollars. Add Winegards "rebuild" cost and return shipping and I had about 500 dollars invested. At the end of the day it was still DOA.

RE: Sorry...another tow vehicle capacity thread

Lots of questions all centered around weights? Biggest problems I see being overloaded are, miserable towing experience. BTDT and it is not fun! Potiential warrenty issues if manufacturer ever suspects or finds out your towing overloaded. Eventual broken parts. Potiential legal issues if you ever get in an accident while towing. And depending where you tow, being pulled over and scaled. BC Canada for example does have laws on the books concerning towing overloaded.

RE: 2015 ram 3500 srw 3.42 fuel economy

Towing? What size/weight trailer. It will make a difference. But generally you should expect 10 towing near capacity for any brand of truck. Maybe 16/18 non towing highway milage if you have a light foot.

RE: I5 south through Portland

No big deal. I5 through Portland is not that bad unless your in rush hour. It is actually faster than I205 most of the day

RE: Direct TV Genie and Aiming the antenna question

The Genie is a SWM only receivet. Your round dish is not. In other words it wont work.

RE: park and route Oregon to Carson City

31 out of LaPine is a beautiful drive through a very deversified environment. Just south of Lakeview is a nice state park, Goose Lake, that is worth a visit. IMHO this is a better drive.

RE: air bags on truck to prevent porpoising

Waste of money. What you really need is more truck. There is nothing you can add that will cure overloading. If you dont believe me, load up and go to a set of scales for some accurate weight numbers. Compare those numbers to your trucks factory GVWR, GCWR, RAWR and you will have the answer. The only model that I see that comes close is either 37 or 41 feet long. The 37 footer has aa GVWR of just under 14,000 pounds, meaning you likely have a pin weight close to 3000 pounds.

RE: Thermostat

NO! 24-Volt means it requires double the available power your trailer has. Better choice is a Hunter Douglas battery powered thermostat available for about 25 dollars at Walmart. Add a 4 dollar SPST switch from Radio Shack and you will also have two speed fan for your AC.

RE: windgard sk-3005

Winegard had a lot of issues with the 3005. My own died and despite probably 80 hours working on it plus a trip back to the factory it was finally replaced with a newer SK-SWM and never looked back. BTW do you get all HD channels? If yes, then quit worrying and go camping.

RE: Dead Satelite Dish

For Direct as I inderstand it no dome type will receive HD programming. Personally unless you really really feel it is necessary to have in motion I would opt for the Winegard Teav'ler. Much larger dish areay for stronger signal, full HD capable.
