RE: New Furniture

It's that time to replace the recliner. Not sure if the present one is real leather or not. Being a 2003 DP Providence Fleetwood, I'm sure it isn't. So my questions is these new motor homes are now using ultra leather. What are your comments on this fabric. I saw that most RV furniture outlets only sell ultr leather.If you like the recliner I would recommend that you have it reupholstered with the fabric of your choice. It doesn't have to be leather or faux leather. You could use a micro fiber material or other cloth that feels good. The choices are nearly endless and much cheaper than buying new.

RE: Removed over/stove...replaced with two burner induction.

Traded in our propane cook top coach for one with Induction. Janet could not be any happier! If we ever spend another Summer in Las Vegas like we did last Summer (115 degrees) she is going to be giddy! What still amazes me is how efficient this type of cooking is. You don't turn the burner to high to get it to heat up, you set the end temp you would like and it happens almost right away. Boil water? Shazam! Hot water! Too hot, change the setting and it is less hot right away. I have never eaten so many perfectly poached eggs in my life before we got our induction cook top. SWEET! We will never go back.

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

Where does all the equipment required to "put on her face" go when the table is folded down. Sounds like a lot of work to move it to and from the shelf everyday.

RE: Road side assist

Hi, Lots of horror stories about Good Sam not being able to source help for RV'ers. I have heard them as well but I have a 40' bus conversion that requires a heavy duty tow truck. In that last 10 years or so we have been towed 3 times without issue. Only once did we get charged anything and that was because I wanted to be towed to a specific shop and that was 7 miles farther than the closest shop. My choice to pay the extra.

RE: Standard definition tv

Thanks for the replies. So as I understand things my H24-100 will work with my existing 18 inch antenna or the Kingdome. This is also with the receiver and I assume that would need to be used inline. DTV SUP-2400 “B Band Converter (BBC) Module” (for Ka-Lo band up conversion) So one day I will need to upgrade to HD and get a Traveler antenna or a new dish that I aim or stay in one place that has good WiFi. What is the future of the carryout antennas? I could get one of those although none of those have HD for DTV as I understand it now. I do appreciate your help here on this forum, when I call DTV their push is to upgrade and or sell something, also seems harder to get a DTV local satellite provider. So far the D12 is still working. Thank You JimR I believe the time for the carryout/dome antenna and DTV has come and gone (gone long ago when no HD was available). Unless DISH makes some major changes to their service the same antenna is fully functionable and receiving full HD. It does have limitations as to the type receiver it can use and can be problematic if you want to use more than 1 receiver, but it is a good option for many DISH users.

RE: Standard definition tv

My RF Mogul dish works great for DTV HD. As does the Trav'ler which is less expensive and used by 25 times (more or less) as many RVers as the RF Mogul (the former MotoSAT folks). I like both antennas but to make the most of an RF Mogul you have to be willing to work on the antenna yourself as there are very few dealers.

RE: Standard definition tv

A better question is will the 18" dish work once they terminate SDTV. That dish works on 101 but not 99 or 103 (Wrong bandwidth). (Antennas are kind of a thing with me.. NOT for Sat TV but for other stuff I sometimes build 'em) As long as DTV is broadcasting "something" from the 101 satellite the 18" dish will still work, as will a dome. The 101 satellite use the KU band now and will continue to broadcast on that same band if they dropped SD and added HD or 4K or any other programming of their choice. When/if that happens you would need an HD receiver to receive programming, however.

RE: Standard definition tv

Yes, the H series receivers are fully backward compatible to SD programming. The HD receiver can receive SD but an SD receiver cannot receive HD. WHEN/IF DTV drops SD broadcast from the 101 satellite they "should" broadcast some amount of programming in HD from 101. With the H series receiver you would suddenly be able to watch DTV with a dome in HD! The only question is what channels will be available. DTV previously listed a small number of channels that would be available but, to my knowledge, no one has a complete list. NO NETWORKS is almost a certainty but the rest remains a big question mark.

RE: Standard definition tv

There are so many duplicate SD channels being broadcast that it would actually make great sense to stop broadcasting these channels from the 101 satellite and use those same transponders to broadcast unique HD channels. This is what DTV is proposing and there's no reason to believe they will not. Why broadcast the Food Network on the 99 satellite in HD and the Food Network on 101 in SD? Better utilization of the 101 satellite makes good financial sense. With AT&T announcing they are selling or have sold DTV this might put an additional monkey wrench in the mix.

RE: Standard definition tv

The fact that DTV is going to end SD transmissions is NOT unsubstantiated. It is only unknown when and what (if anything) will be broadcast from the 101 satellite when they do. Those of us using a Winegard Trav'ler could care less (but I will miss being able to switch to SD in a really bad rain storm!) but dome users are likely in for a very big surprise when it happens. You likely don't remember 2000 (or 01) when DirecTV initiated their spot-beam broadcasts of local Networks. I DO! One day we were watching NBC from FL while in WY and the next day ALL Network programming was gone. No warning, no previous information. They were just gone. It took some time for us to find out what happened. I believe it's about to happen again but this time we will have had some warning mixed in with a lot of bad information about the drop dead date.

RE: Standard definition tv

They are still showing HD and SD versions of stations on mine. The SD channels are being broadcast from the 101 satellite so dome users would not currently be seeing any issues.

RE: Any "Real" Unlimited Plans?

OP has posted twice since the original post...........We have wasted a bunch of time explaining reality to someone not interested in facts.

RE: How about THIS instead of using more and more energy?

I noticed 2nd graders have the same issues. Curious. The difference is that 2nd graders are given information they can use.

RE: How about THIS instead of using more and more energy?

Mex, I am always surprised when I read your posts. Very few make any sense to any current RVer but they are always entertaining.

RE: ??? Full Body RV Re-Paint Job, 15 yrs old, its time ???

Sine you don't mention the year and type of RV that you own it's nearly impossible to answer your question. If you own a Prevost, you will be VERY disappointed with a paint job in Mexico. If you own a high end RV that has a factory paint job you will only be very disappointed with a paint job in Mexico. If you have a fiberglass coach you can get an acceptable paint job in Mexico but your wife (or husband) might never let you live it down. A good paint job on an RV is going to cost at least $10,000 and a really good one is going to cost $15,000+. What is your goal, what's your coach, what makes you think you need you need a paint job?

RE: Any "Real" Unlimited Plans?

I have two AT&T Mobley plans and they are not subject to "throttling", just network management. . . there's a HUGE difference.For the pedantic among us, yes deprioritization , not throttling. Both however result in slower data speeds which I would expect are PITA for those who choose to stream. Dave I was surprised how well my Mobley streamed movies without hiccups in busy areas of SF (Fishermans Wharf) and Sacramento. I have NEVER had the Mobley service buffer my streaming. Cool, huh!

RE: Warm weather traveling

On our old gasser and our newer to us diesel pusher we use the roof top air almost always. It gives us a nice comfortable trip and when we arrive at our campsite, its a quick plug in and the rig stays cool and comfortable. I found the extra fuel use negligible. Yep!

RE: Questions About People's Knowledge Of Various Issues

Since the topis is "Questions About People's Knowledge Of Various Issues" I can tell you that I will not answer! This is not a knowledge question but rather on of opinions. There appear to be big fans in every corner and it will be up to you to make the right choice. If you are looking for an RV with no slides then the #1 choice is an older Prevost conversion! No leaks, no delam, no fiberglass! Awesome!
