RE: Excel Question - Not rv related

I pay for Office 365 so I would like to think my Excel version would work the same, but when I click on my pivot table Anyalyze, then Pivot table, then Options, there is no line for Show Report Filter Pages. No line at all; I could see if it were greyed out that maybe I have some option set wrong. Thanks for trying. I have to move on to something else now. If I figure out the solution later, I will post again.

RE: Excel Question - Not rv related

Click inside your Pivot Table and in the menu ribbon under PivotTable Tools choose the Options tab and then select the Options drop down and choose Show Report Filter Pages. Did that help? Admin RV.net I found a youtube video with those instructions but my options tab doesn't have a Show Report Filter Pages option, not even greyed out. I could do it easily on my older excel version but now that I am paying for the subscription model, it all looks different. Thanks for trying.

Excel Question - Not rv related

Not rv related but I am sure someone on here will know the answer. I have a Pivot table in excel 2016. I want to create a tab for each of about 50 options I have in my pivot table. I used to click on Show Report Filter Pages but I can't seem to find that in the new version. Can you help me?

RE: New Cell Phone..had to ask?

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00Z9QVE4Q/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&psc=1 - until you decide I bought one of these Anker battery portable charger and got another year off our old phones. Now I carry it in our backpacks to charge our phones and cameras.

RE: Directv

I believe DNS is still available for RV Accounts (not household). You can only get one set (NY or LA) and it will be the ones closest to your billing address. I have read that an LA or NY billing address gets them across the country, but others have written that is not true; the spot beam is LA is different from the country wide (CONUS?) signal. Beats me, and I have no way to verify. It may still be available but not if you can't find someone at Directv who knows how to sign you up or even give you a price for a service they have never heard of.

RE: Directv

original poster here - I called a couple different times today, something I used to do trying to find someone at AT&T who actually knows what they are talking about, still getting conflicting information from them. I think I will go back to my original plan and spend the money to convert the Traveler to Dish this spring before heading out. AT&T just don't seem to want my business.
2chiefsRus 01/28/21 12:41pm Technology Corner

If I sign up for Directv with a billing address in Florida, what network affiliates can I expect to receive? Back story I was a long time (20 years) Directv customer receiving both LA & NY distant networks. I cancelled my Directv service over a year ago when it looked like Directv was going to lose distant networks. I call AT&T today and ask them which network affiliates I can receive now, NY or LA? The representative insists that if I sign up with my florida address, that I would receive for example NBC local news from the Orlando affiliate even if I am parked in Wyoming - IS THAT TRUE? Has AT&T changed the spot beam technology that Directv used to use? I have a Winegard Traveler already.

RE: portable washer and dryer with a twist.

My concern would be how do you find something solid to mount that pull out shelf to?

RE: portable washer and dryer with a twist.

I have a Splendide 2100XC that I have been using full time for a little over 10 years now. It has been and is still great. Having read a lot of negative reviews of the Splendide product I feel most of the negative is because users are comparing them to full size residential units. They are smaller, require longer to dry (120v vs 240v from home units), etc. Once you realize you can't overload them, they are great. I use my unit as a dirty clothes hamper for colors and when it is ready to wash I run it. I do recommend you use dryer balls and do not use dryer sheets. Agree although I don't use the dryer balls to reduce the wrinkles; I just hang most cotton things to dry most of the way and then just pop them back in to finish. Don't use the dryer sheets because they can clog up the drain which will cause a huge problem. If you accept the combos limitations, you will be happy with it. If you want to be able to do both wash and dryer loads at the same time, you won't be happy; if you want to be able to use it like a residential unit, you won't be happy. As to your original question, I would not be happy with the set-up you are considering. Sounds cumbersome to me. But You might be thrilled with it compared to using a laundromat if you are full time.

RE: Toad Full size Pickup

If it were me, I would verify towing capacity before investing any money in a tow bar. It isn't just about your hitch weight capacity. You don't want to risk damaging your transmission. You might be able to pull it but are you going to be able to stop it; i.e. are your brakes rated to handle that much load.

RE: Traveling in the winter with a TT

So it is ok to run the heat while pulling the TT? Do you have enough battery power? Furnace is a big user of 12volt. Will you be able to stay in a campground once you get there? I would imagine most campgrounds are either closed or have shut off their water.

RE: Long Road trip

it depends upon if you are moving locations often during the 4-6 weeks or staying mostly at 1 or 2 places. Motorhome is nice for moving around a lot. Fifth Wheel is nice for sitting in one place for longer period of time. Motorhome with a toad is nice for touring in the local area vs a big truck. Motorhome is nice for pulling into a rest area in the rain and being able to take a break without getting out in the rain. Being able to start generator from inside is nice too. Gas vs diesel motorhome makes a big difference though.

RE: Should I buy a Class C or not for this specific situation?

If it were me at that price range, I would look for an older high end Class A versus a Class C. A 15 to 20 year old high end Class A will LIKELY have a better exterior than a Class C 10 to 15 years old. A Class A diesel coach has engine and transmissions that are built to last longer than the typical Class C. Obviously there are exceptions to both styles. Just saying don't limit yourself to just Class C in your search.

RE: One night stays and black/grey tanks

Why not as you are getting ready to leave fill your tanks completely and then dump. Won't take that long to fill. You can put a hose in the toilet to fill the black tank faster. not all areas of the country have enough water to waste like that.

RE: One night stays and black/grey tanks

if you are concerned about weight, it would be nice to know if you are traveling with a nearly empty 40 foot motorhome or a nearly maxed out on weight travel trailer? or somewhere in between. more information would give you better answers. otherwise everyone assumes you have an rv like they have.

RE: Kwikee Step Motor Replacement

As others have suggested - step motors usually last a LONG time. Is the motor dead or have the gears busted? Is the step installed correctly? Do you have binding issues? You can remove a cotter pin and bar which which connects linkage between step/motor .. that way you can manually open the step and determine whether it moves smoothly. Husband is very good about taking care of things, so yes it has been maintained. Husband changed it both times himself. It does not bind. Just wondering if we are buying the proper replacement motor. We've taken the current motor off and it appears the plastic gear inside is stripping just like the others did.

RE: Kwikee Step Motor Replacement

The steps still go out smoothly but stutter on the way in and don't quite make it all the way in. The same thing they did twice before, both times replacing the motor resolved the problem.

Kwikee Step Motor Replacement

we have had to replace our step motor twice now over the years we have owned the coach (2007 original owners) we have been using an ACI 83694 motor. last one was installed just over 3 years ago. Has this been the norm for other folks or are you using a different replacement motor? Thanks

RE: Onan Generator Service

You are only 75 miles from Elkhart. I would call the Onan/Cummins shops up there and get a quote and then drive up and wait or just drive back home and come back when ready. Doug Thanks Doug - we just had the work done the last two days in Elkhart. See my last post just above yours.
