RE: TV remotes

Our Dish 40.0 remotes work with our TV, DVD player, and Hopper w/Sling. I haven't tried to make them work with our FireTVstick though.

RE: Halloween Or Not

Some towns in our hold trick or treating tonight so folks can attend the Halloween parties various organizations put on tomorrow night. Most have been canceled this year though. There was a piece on the local TV news tonight about how people are handling trick or treaters this year. One house has a basket on the porch with small bags of candy, and a sign pointing at their security camera saying "Please take only one bag. We're watching, and so is Santa." :)

Cold coffee is why microwaves were invented... ;)

RE: Range hood fans

Our vent latches inside as well, and I put a small label by the switch that says "Vent unlatched?" as a reminder. Our previous RV had the vent latches outside, and I used the same label inside.

RE: Range hood fans

I replaced the OEM fan in our hood with a Silverstone 180mm fan (don't recall the model) about 6 years ago, and it runs so quiet I added a small red LED next to the switch to remind us when it's turned on. It moves plenty of air, and I used the same type of fan to replace the noisy OEM fan in the bathroom as well. I didn't see any need for the included speed control in either case.

RE: Daylight savings time !

"Thrift wasn’t the only reason for saving daylight" "In 1895, George Hudson, an entomologist from New Zealand, came up with the modern concept of daylight saving time. He proposed a two-hour time shift so he’d have more after-work hours of sunshine to go bug hunting in the summer." Get the facts about springing forward and falling back, a tradition that was established in the U.S. in 1918.

RE: Satellite Newbie looking for advice

With a DISH pay as you go "Outdoors" account, you don't even need to call in to change locals. Just a few key taps in your phone's free MyDISH app uses the phone's GPS to change them for you. I definitely agree the Pathway X2 is the best choice for a portable self-aiming dish.

RE: Satellite Newbie looking for advice

Start here: DISHformyRV They have several equipment packages, all HD and most with automatic aiming portable dishes. Starting and stopping service is as simple as just not paying for the next month to stop and then paying for the next month to restart. Couldn't be easier...

RE: questions.... I have them.. :D

My 77 year old hands have trouble screwing hose fittings tightly together, so I equipped my water hoses and city water port with quick disconnects that make the job much easier. I found the brass QD's linked below to be more reliable and longer lasting than the cheaper plastic or brass colored aluminium kind. ShowNew Garden Hose Quick Connectors, Solid Brass

RE: Hulu, or something similar?

Streaming is possible anywhere you have a good Internet connection, preferable 10 Mbps or better for HD or 4K. A solid 5 Mbps will usually work as well, but may limit what other online activities you can do at the same time. Be aware though, there are almost no new movies being released right now due to Covid-19. Hulu carries many of the same channels that Dish does, although you can pay extra for HBO, etc. that should give you a little different movie selection.

RE: 1157 Style LED Interior Bulb Warm Lighting?

Anybody ever seen a dual contact interior light socket? I've seen 1157 bulbs wedged into a 1141 socket for more light. The first indication is a melted lens, followed by a melted fixture. Not good. Years ago we had a small Class C that had a couple of interior lights that used dual filament 1157's in fixtures with "High/Low" switch settings. I don't know if the fixtures were OEM or not.

RE: New York to Florida tips

Our favorite Asheville area campground is the Lake Powhatan Recreation Area in the Pisgah National Forest. The mis-named "Lakeside Loop" has full hookup sites.

RE: How is the automatic step suppoed to work

The step should always follow the door when the ignition key is turned on, retracting when closed, extending when opened, regardless of the step switch position. With the ignition off, it depends on the step switch position.

RE: Manufacturing and Marketing Genius

My ex-son-in-law had some tires he put out by the curb with a "Free" sign, but no one took them. I suggested marking them with a $25 sign and they disappeared overnight. :)

RE: Halloween Or Not

We've spent the last 50 or so Halloweens at our Upstate NY family cottage, and the only trick or treater we've ever seen was when our daughter brought our then toddler granddaughter over to show off her costume. This year, I heard the local fire departments will be driving their trucks around passing out candy to trick or treaters standing on their lawns or sidewalks in costume in lieu of the kids going house to house.

RE: Fridge issue

Make and model of the fridge might help us help you better. Are you getting 12 volts at the fridge?
