RE: Full time with DirectTV

Directv/AT&T has the worst customer service in the world!!v.It's pretty bad when you have to keep calling back because you can't get good service the first time. They're sales people.. they're always trying to sell you a service call for the simplest problem - but they don't service RVs. I got fed up with trying to change locals so I gave them a Los Angeles service address which works all over the place.

RE: pillow recommendation

How screwed up are things when a pillow becomes a political issue?. Depends on your politics.

RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

One of the winter injuries we would see is a fan belt/fan laceration when car was started with cat sitting on engine.I drove 20 miles, pulled into a McD's, got out and saw her cute little head poking out from between the cab and bed. OMG! At least she had the smarts to stay put through all that. That was the day I learned never go anywhere without knowing where she was.

RE: Full time with DirectTV

Can't you buy the equipment yourself, then just call them to activate the card at a particular address? Afaik they do not do RV 'installations'.

RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

Just be sure the cat is in someone's arms or in a closed crate before extending or retracting slides.Be sure the cat isn't up in your truck's frame before driving. Yeah, that happened.

RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

I rescued my kitty at 6 years old, she's now 10. She rides in the 5er and just goes to sleep until we get there. She's changed my camping habits in that she needs bushes and trees, so no more casino parking lots or truck stops or Walmarts.

RE: Converting to 12v fridge Canada question

Current fridge is 2 way, so I'm thinking the 12v wiring is pretty light.The owner's manual should recommend wiring size.

RE: Converting to 12v fridge Canada question

Are you talking about a 12v compressor fridge? I guess if you ask if it's loud, the answer is yes.

RE: Looking for inverter installation in SF Bay Area

That sounds fine to me, but I don't have direct experience with that sort of thing.

RE: Looking for inverter installation in SF Bay Area

Do you have a transfer switch?Yes I do, it's just a manual 3pdt knife switch. Long story, but the switches in inverters are not fast enough to keep my Dtv receiver on, so it's permanently on inverter.

RE: Looking for inverter installation in SF Bay Area

Sounds like you know what you want. Plugging shore into it is easy, that way everything works. Mine is hard-wired directly to the panel, which accomplishes the same thing.

RE: Looking for inverter installation in SF Bay Area

Have you designed the installation or letting someone else do it?

RE: Making Oil

Do you know if the DPF on yours is designed to be taken off and cleaned? It is. I'm not sure if the shop where I had it replaced could do that or if it actually needed to be replaced. I seem to remember they said it was a goner.. and at only 100k miles. Anyway, it was expensive. I have a switch on the dash to manually force a regen, but it has not worked. There's a little leaf on the switch I didn't notice at first. Perhaps that's the secret. In 7 years of ownership it has derated and forced me to stop exactly ONCE to regen. Scared me to death!

RE: Making Oil

You have a Freightliner, right? Maxxforce powered?Yes, 2008 Cummins 8.3L. I don't think my regen is working properly. Next shop visit when spring returns. It's very tempting to want to delete this thing, but... oh well

RE: Making Oil

That’s a very common problem on Diesel engines that were manufactured from about 2007-2010. They typically had diesel particulate filters (DPF), but did not use diesel exhaust fluid (DEF). That's what I have, and this truck does not go grocery shopping.

RE: Plumbing pressure relief

I didn't want to get onto it, but since the air dissolved into the water tells me that draining and flushing is way overdue.I drained and flushed mine 6 months ago and it does it.

RE: features for dc to DC chargers

Does your existing converter allow you to run the slides? I'm assuming you are running the converter from an inverter?Yes, it's a 30a 48->12 'buck' converter. No. I think we're talking about two different animals.
