RE: Furnace and battery

How old and what (exactly) type of batteries are these? Amp Hours? Deep cycle? Brand? Wet cell that require you add water or something else?

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Now that's funny! Where did that come from? Facebook?

RE: Directv H25 problems

If you could have had them send you an H24 instead of H25 you could have used that with the dome and not have needed the SWM8 setup. They might not even offer them any longer, I don't know. What happened when you did the "reset everything" on the H25? Now that new hardware is on the way, if would be a good time to swap the H25's. It's nonsense for them to have told you not to do that.

RE: Directv H25 problems

You can do as you please but if I was at Winegard and you said you have a home receiver connected to a home antenna, I would tell you to call DTV. Good luck!

RE: 50amp on 120/208 service

We discussed the install and the installer was very familiar with an RV plug. I had just never seen the 208 setup and was looking for confirmation that using that was not a problem since I never use anything other than 120. Since you have confirmed the electrician will properly wire the receptacle-- 208 3 phase will yield the following in your situation-- 208 volts across 2 hot leads 115 volts from each hot to neutral This will work perfectly fine. You can and should confirm it with a volt meter. Good luck-- Mick Thanks. I already had planned to do that!

RE: Directv H25 problems

I haven't had a chance to do any further trouble shooting as I spent the day at the tampa RV super show. I did speak to a wineguard rep, but he wasn't much help. Mostly a salesmen suggested I call wineguard an speak to advance tech. I'm going to try and reset everything on the bad H25 tomorrow if that doesn't help then I'll call wineguard. Thanks all advice appreciated. Why would you be calling Winegard? I thought you were at home with a DirecTV receiver connected to a DirecTV antenna. If that's true, Winegard can't do a thing.

RE: Dish Satellite 129

how. are you pointing the dish? suggest youbtry the 'Dish For My RV' app. it uses the phone's. camera to show you where the sats are. The Pathway is an autoseek dome. You don’t point it. You set it on the ground and click a box on your menu.. I have intermittent issues getting a signal. Maybe try a better cable or clean your connections. doesn't an autoseek dome require one side to be pointed in a specific direction before activating? maybe the dome is not set correctly? seems to me if it were a bad cable there'd be a problem with all of the dish birds. Not necessary with a Winegard dome.

Soap and water, cover if you are parked for more than a few days.

RE: Directv H25 problems

I have 3 receivers 2 H25 and one D12. The PI is by the main TV and is working. I have done a receiver restart,and reset defaults. I haven't reset everything as I was not sure if that would cause problems with the two receivers which are working fine. For some reason that H25 is not seeing the HD sats.after using it in the rv with the swm 8 kit and the carryout. The receivers do not interact so pushing the reset everything button will only reset everything on that receiver. That would be DTV's first thing in trouble shooting the system. If the other H25 is working properly, swap this H25 with that H25. If it still only gets 101 then the reset everything and a new satellite setup should get it going again.

RE: Time for New Floors, Anyone with Pics of New Wood Floors

Carpet is NOT the enemy. Sometimes carpet makes sense. Hardwood/vinyl pretending to be hardwood in the bedroom is NOT for me. Carpet is warm. Hardwood/Vinyl is cold. Where and when you travel should be a consideration.

RE: 50amp on 120/208 service

Not sure why anyone thought I was going to try to install this myself, but I have 2 professionals installing the plug but not all professionals understand exactly what is required of RV's. They know what an RV plug is and the wiring required. I just wanted a little reassurance that they understood what I hoped they understood and it appears that they do. Hopefully, they will get the work done this week or next and I will be plugged in 30 seconds from the office!

RE: 50amp on 120/208 service

"NOTHING in yoru RV needs 240 volts (Minor exception if you have an ALL ELECTRIC RV that may not be the case) Everythign is 120 volt" HMMMMM, I have a 220V Washer AND Dryer. I also have 220V Cheap Heat. Bottom line I would consult a QUALIFIED Electrician. No, nothing in my RV needs anything other than 120. Don't need ANY kind of electrician to tell me that.

Unnecessary comment. Sorry.

RE: Directv H25 problems

Both receiver are set to dish SL3, and switch LNB8 CH. I don't see slimline 3 or SWM3 under options. Thanks That is the correct setting. Exactly the same as mine. Have you tried doing a factory reset (not sure of the exact wording)? If not, start there. Check to ensure that all your connections are correct and the SWM power inserter is between the antenna and your receiver. Do you have more than 1 receiver?
Bill.Satellite 01/16/19 06:02pm Technology Corner
RE: Directv H25 problems

Be sure to check signals on all 3 satellites to confirm the receiver is "seeing" all 3. SD comes from 101 and HD from 99 and 103.

50amp on 120/208 service

I know most systems are setup on 120/240 systems but I need to have a plug installed in a commercial building that has 3 phase lines coming in and power options are 120 and 208. I don't see where that would be an issue as I would have 2 good 120V legs but between the 2 legs it would read 208. I don't use 240 (or 208) anywhere in the coach and don't see why this would be an issue but I would love someone to confirm that I am right or give me a warning that something with this setup could be an issue. Thanks all.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Sorry, but I can't figure out the plan here. There a hoop and some square and they seem to be laid on top of each other. I don't have your mental image so any help would be appreciated (or tell me to shut up and watch for future developments).

RE: Directv H25 problems

Yes that's correct on the home antenna. Just rechecked and the satellite is set to SL3 LNB with switch type SWN LNB 8CH. Here the kicker I'm unable to change any of the satellite or switch settings when on that page the high lighted goes straight to continue. It won't allow me to make any changes or even restore settings. Those are the same settings I see in my H25. When you go to the signal strength screen are you able to select 101, 99 and 103 and if so, are you seeing good numbers there (80+)?

RE: Prevost Bus or Newmar King Air

This is true. Prevost did not offer a factory slide until around the 2000/2001 model year when they make the change over from the XL to the XLII and later shell. However, the coach manufacturers did a very good job of installing after market slides which have functioned well and can be serviced by many dealers.
