RE: Directv access card

Right, so that is the required update. It looks like DTV has now set that date as their projected time to drop the SD signal. If/when they do that you will no longer be able to receive ANY DTV satellite TV with a D12.

RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

Time to find an OTA DVR. I have been using a Tablo OTA DVR since cutting the cord about 5 years ago. We are pleased. I only wish I had sprung for the 4 tuner model instead of the 2 tuner model.Sorry, won't work where we travel. No Internet, No cell service. If it don't come by satellite, we can't get it (and even then sometimes not due to mountains and latitude). We only use it at home. We don't DVR (or even OTA) while traveling. That is part of our "getting away." It doesn't sound like you even have satellite TV so not sure what your posts have to do with the DNS services issues. Anyone still interested, yes, I still have E and W DNS.

RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

I continue to receive E and W DNS (less ABC and CW).

RE: Directv access card

If you are currently using a SD only receiver like a D12 or R series DVR (actually any receiver model that does not start with an H or HR) then DTV is correct that you will need new hardware to continue to receive the DTV signal when they end the SD broadcast in the near future.

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

How is that hot pot coming off the stove going to play with a wood countertop coated in lacquer or epoxy?

RE: gps which one is best,second best

Not sure why folks keep talking about not using a cell phone as a GPS due to concerns over losing mapping with no cell service. A) If you know you are headed for such an extremely remote area where you will not have service for hours, you can download the maps before you leave on the trip. B) Google Maps downloads a good portion of your trip as soon as you begin the trip and continues to do so as you travel. The phone always has many many miles ahead of you already downloaded so loss of cell signal for a little while is of no concern. If you are traveling the Interstate highway system it's unlikely you would ever be without a signal for any longer than it takes to top the hill ahead. C) Using the phone gives you the only truly LIVE traffic info even out in the middle of nowhere as the phone collects speed information along your route and can warn you of major traffic issues giving you time to find and alternate route, take a break or just live with it knowing how far ahead the back up ends. Google can now also let you know where there are lane closures, speed traps and other user reported issues. None of this is available via a stand alone GPS unless you tie it to your cell phone and that pretty much kills the argument of GPS and loss of cellular. Lastly, while any GPS can have incorrect mapping information, the MOST up-to-date maps are available on Google Maps and WAZE. They can be be updated in real time on short notice like years long construction projects. These never show up on a Garmin type device but keep you on track with phone apps.

RE: Directv access card

How old and what type receiver are you using?

RE: RV Tires

If I could find them, I would have nothing but Michelin on my coach. However, I have an older coach with tires that are hard to find. I have tires I am happy with on my coach now but there's simply nothing better that I have found than good 'ole Michelin's (or BF Goodrich made by Michelin). I have tried most all of them other than Toyo so I cannot speak for that brand.

And here I thought you were going for the '50s retro look. X2!

RE: Ziplock space Bags (vacuum seal)

Used them, love them. Not for clothing so good luck with that. I suspect that a good washing and drying will return any clothing to acceptable conditions.

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

As the plan evolves, the "normal" RVer will question many decisions. However, it's not your RV or mine (the DW cringes every time I show her the progress) so as long as the OP and his DW are happy, that's all that matters. If you keep showing your wife these pictures, she may get a couple of ideas that she likes. Or not! Lol. Not so far! She just now groaned and asked what decade that cooktop came from. LOL

RE: Water miser issues.

Not sure if your setup is like mine, but I was able to remove the head and replace it with one from Lowe's or Home Depot. You get the all the flow your water pump can provide. I also have 2 water pumps install so I get plenty of water!

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

I know you have a plan. I know it will be unique. I look at the kitchen and try to imagine the work triangle. Stove and sink on opposite sides and the fridge nowhere in site. Don't worry about, I still along for the ride.

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

You see a plan? I don't unless it's a plan with little or no light in the kitchen area! I suppose you can put a bunch of lights in the ceiling but natural light throughout the coach is very important to me (read.....ME). Apparently, that's not a concern to the OP or his wife. I will be most interested to see where the fridge, sink and cooktop will go and how the heat will be ventilated. It's just starting to get really interesting.

RE: Older MH mpg with diesel

MPG should not even be a consideration. What difference will it make if you get 7 MPG or 10 MPG? Find and buy the RV that you love and that meets your needs. Over the course of 10,000 miles per year, that 3 MPG is less than $1500 and should not be a factor you use to determine if you have found the right coach.

RE: gps which one is best,second best

Loss of the cellular signal is a very minor issue (none if you know where you are going will have limited cellular service) and the GPS always has pre-loaded a portion of your trip. You would have to drive for hours without cellular service to run out of mapping information.

RE: gps which one is best,second best

The best would be your phone and Google Maps. 2nd best WAZE on your phone.

RE: Winegard Coax Cable ??

Maybe there is and maybe there's not. Sometimes it's is a CxxPshoot. Dig in the caulk and see what you find. If it's not easily accessible then give up and run a new cable. That might mean running a new coax from the antenna and drilling a small hole at an accessible location to route the new cable to the power supply inside. If you run an entirely new cable, make that from the head itself to the power supply and make it RG6. If you do any sort of a patch, it makes no difference if you use RG6 or RG59 as the patch cable.
