RE: Unfair Reservation System?

Or if you can’t beat em join em. Rent a month and go back and forth on weekends.

RE: Unfair Reservation System?

I feel your pain. But they probably got tired of seeing a bunch of empty spots on weekends and people complaining they wants weeks and months and not just a weekend. We have Reserveamerica in Florida which I hate. And one reason is they let weekends book up 11 months in advance. So we can try for a week or two and there are no weekends only weekdays open.

RE: 20 year old hoses

I was at Freightliner Gaffney this summer for belts and valve lash on my 05. Factory hoses. I asked them to check the hoses and advise and he told me they were fine. They squeeze them and check for cracks. If they’re still soft, flexible and no cracks leave them. Buying replacements might not be a bad idea.

RE: replacement for Directv

You can not use a Hopper with the Winegard Pathway. I tried using the Hopper and a Joey with a tripod and the correct LNB but it was too big of a pain to take the Hopper, Joey and Access point out to the rv. Not to mention DISH boxes have a slow meter so it was a pain to align the dish. Now I just leave them at home to grind away downloading shows and use the Pathway. I hope someday Winegard or someone comes out with an auto align dome that works with a Hopper.

RE: Side windows are fogged up

Sun last Design in Hudson FL did mine. A few hundred per window. You can ship the windows to them.

RE: Harvest Host

The 1-2 nite max was a no no for us. We rarely stay less than 2-3.

RE: Alternative satellite option?

DISH has two sets of sats; the eastern arc is in the southeast southern sky any higher up and western arc is in the southwest sky. With an augmented reality sat location app on a smart phone you can “see” the sats and move around until one of the sets of sats is clear. I set my Pathway up there. I almost always can get sats. It just takes a small hole. I agree rooftop sat dishes are nearly useless. I haven’t used mine in years.

RE: Alternative satellite option?

Another vote for a Winegard Pathway X2 and a DISH Wally. Hook it up and you’re done.

RE: health insurance

I can get medicare when i reach 65 through my state run pension plan, its call ed the connector, they will subsidize my premiums but at what % is still unknown. Medicare and SS aren’t tied together. Also you will still need a supplemental policy to pick up what SS doesn’t cover.

RE: fridge removal and replacement

I replaced the cooling unit with an Amish made unit so no removal necessary. Works better than a new one.

RE: health insurance

We were self employed for decades. Health insurance is one hot mess in the US. We are now on Medicare but before we turned 65, we were paying over $2000/mo and had high deductibles so most years add on another $3-5K out of pocket. What don’t you qualify for Medicare? If you need more contribution go back to work. If you have the income bite the bullet. If not, work until your 65.

RE: Class A. Wheel size

The 90’s F53s had 16”. My Honda toad had 17”.

RE: Class A. Wheel size

I read somewhere the new motor will be mated to the six speed for a few years. 2016 and up Fords have the six speed. Fleetwood and Holiday Rambler 32’ have 22.5”.

RE: I-4 though Orlando

It’s a mess. You don’t say where/how you’re coming from but you can take 75 down and then connect to the Florida turnpike below Orlando.

RE: Update on the 96 Bounder MH gifted to me

I’m guessing you replaced two six volt batteries that were in series (12v) with two 12v in series (24). The lp tank has a shut off solenoid for shutting off the lp when filling or for tunnels. There is a switch somewhere. F53 are notorious for brake problems. I would replace all hoses and caliper pins.

RE: replacement for Directv

I’ve had both and DISH is WAY more RV friendly. You can reauthorize your sat box with your smartphone. DISH doesn’t care if you change locals everyday. I bought a carryout auto seek dome Winegard Pathway X2. It does HD. You can’t use a Hopper but the Wally is ok. You can add a USB drive to use DVR feature, no monthly fee. Just a one time $40 DVR fee. Way better tech support than DTV.

RE: stand alone antenna booster

Winegard Sensar Pro. Adjustable amp, scan peak signal meter. Made a big difference.

RE: Did you get your free DISH voice remote?

You have to press the mic button to talk to it. I wouldn’t call using a voice remote lazy. ALL remotes promote laziness. I remember dad sitting in his Lazy Boy telling one of us to change the channel. I haven’t used it long enough to form an opinion.
