RE: What can I do with/expect from a generator?

if i buy a generator we might as well also be able to run the microwave and recharge our devices. i think the main goal would be to extend boondocking, and recharge batteries if we go winter camping and run the furnace overnight. and the microwave here and there.Inverters are much handier and quieter than constantly running a generator, feeding it gas, carting it around. And nobody runs a generator to run the furnace. I don't know what a Honda 3000ec is. I suggest you spend time with the link I provided so you get a good understanding of how this works. Then you won't have to ask others how it works.

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

You should be able to view your recording sans antenna, after rebooting from no power.No, that does not work now. Something has changed..I'll try mine soon and see what happens. I got a 'storage device' error yesterday, so I hope my DVR isn't dying, because then I have to deal with DTV and I never enjoy that.

RE: Generator and AC help? Rookie needs help.

I was concerned about exhaust fumes etc entering the RV while we are sleeping, etcI would be too. Better have a working CO detector. Personally I'd never sleep with a running generator any more than I'd sleep next to a running truck.

RE: Generator and AC help? Rookie needs help.

As long as you're not sitting in absolutely still air you should be fine. I'm not sure what the a/c being on top has to do with it.

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

I'm going to talk to my xfinity internet provider today about their TV service. I know.. ugh. But this is for the house. I'm going to splurge on a huge QLED 4k TV, and need info on what stations actually support that. I know there's also 8k but afaik no supporting broadcasts.

RE: Non SWM DTV dish Obsolete in 2019

I'm going to give philo a trial for the house. It has WE and other channels I like. You do have to shop around to find what suits you. I will still need DTV on the road. Hard to beat that. Man, there sure are a lot of these services now!

RE: Attaching solar to roof

it is NOT my camper, and even if it was, myself and the owner agree that water is the RV killer, and don't want any more holes in his roof.And it's easy to seal holes. People ask questions all the time on here based on false assumptions and fear. I don't fault answers that try to dispel that fear. Other examples are "I don't want 6v batteries cause if one dies..." or "I will not travel with propane on." That's fine, but please, make an informed decision, not one based on pure fear.

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

bought/installed an inverter just for the HR44 so I can keep it powered up continuously and not lose my ability to access my recordings with no antenna up.You should be able to view your recording sans antenna, after rebooting from no power. A few years ago DTV pulled that stunt.. which is ridiculous.. but so far they've fixed it and recordings should be viewable regardless. I use the Quick tune (9 channel thing when you press the up arrow) but you have no idea what's on unless you select and go to that channel. 20 years ago the Hughes receivers showed the program name in the title block so you didn't have to do that. I suggested DTV make that enhancement. They refused.

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

With streaming you don't need to record, all programs are always there ready to watch at anytime,Can I stream through commercials?

RE: DTV nightmare.. Timmac around?

..buy a Roko box and hook it up with your internet a away you go.I'm going to investigate that.I have a smart TV and am looking at the Hulu app. For around $45 a month I can get pretty much all I need, via wireless. The fly in the ointment for me is recording. I never watch live TV. I also like the 4k thing.. which I think I can only get via xfinity home internet - plus a DVR. But that ain't cheap. There's a lot out there!
