RE: Awning misaligned when rolled up?

Mine has done that at times, usually from the wind. Ounce I have the material aligned correctly so the arms close properly I mark the tube on both ends of the material with a marker. This gives me a visual reference to check before rolling up the awning.

RE: Tire Pressure Monitoring System for FW

I could do that. I could probably find any number of 12 volt circuits in and around the converter that I could use. I just don't want any parasitic load on the unit. Scott My Pressure Pro system's repeater has an end that plugs in to a 12volt outlet that we have in the bedroom closet. Easy to plug in before a trip and unplug at a campsite. It will pick up the signals from the trailer tires and the boat trailer behind it.

RE: Travel Assist Insurance

I think mustang may be asking about medical assistance insurance since Good Sam offers it. I don't have it but am looking into it.

RE: Removing AM24N tuner from DirecTV satellite receiver

15-20 years is an eternity for technology. And turnover is also high for satellite/cable techs. A few years ago I was looking for a 5 year old receiver for my RV's 18" dish and it took weeks to find a used one and DirecTV was no help.

RE: Chaning Differental oil ???

Yes, do it now along with transfer case and front diff. I have an '06 and change mine about every 5 years. But I live at the foot of the Rockies and tow a bunch in them. Towing is hard on gear boxes.

RE: Trouble with Poop Chute

It is possible that there is a leak at the connection between the tank and the vent pipe that goes up to the roof. Fill the tank full to check by filling with a hose thru the toilet so you can see when it is full. Be sure to have a shut off on the hose.

RE: Colorado experts...help please

I would not take C as there is major road work on I25 on the south side of Colo. Springs including replacing bridges. Completion is 2024. What a mess!

RE: Fabric ceilings

If the ceiling is covered with fabric like mine is. I have had great luck with Folex,on my Fabric ceilings just spray it on and BLOT don't rub,you will be amazed at how it lifts out any stains. It may take more than one application but it cleaned it all. http://images.lowes.com/product/converted/079738/079738000323.jpg height=280 You can get it at most big box home improvement stores or Amazon check out the reviews and pictures on Amazon. I agree, Folex is a great product for any fabric. Does a great job on the rug in our RV.

RE: Anode Rod Wear

Ours always erodes quickest nearest the threads, which I believe is the reason: closest connection. But just a guess. Mine too, and same guess. Same with mine. I continue to use it as it will still sacrifice for a time.

RE: Refill small propane cylinder

I had one of those 1 gallon tanks for many years and never had any issue getting it refilled anywhere, even at campgrounds. Finally a campground did warn me that it was well out of certification so I bought a new 2 gallon tank at Murdochs and dropped the old one off at a propane dealer for recycling.

RE: TIRES,,,,,need 4

I've been disappointed the few times I strayed from Michelin. I've been disappointed the couple times I've had Michelins. Same with me.

RE: Winegard satellite antenna help

I am aware of the Trav'ler but $2249 is too much for me, especially when Dish has domes w/hd starting around $310. Can't justify it for an 18 year old trailer.

RE: Winegard satellite antenna help

I have the signal back at this time, though probably only temporarily. I glued the 2 pieces of the gear together and then ran a machine bolt through the center hub to hold them together. Another strong wind may undo my work. I know that a dome would work but Direct only has SD in theirs so if we decide to go with a dome we want to upgrade to HD. That means changing everything to Dish so we only have 1 provider and account. Thanks for the info though.

RE: Winegard satellite antenna help

I am aware of the SD/HD issue with DTV. I purchased an older HD receiver, H24-200, a couple of years back when all of this SD/HD started. We get all but a few of channels we get at home which works for us. Still searching.

Winegard satellite antenna help

Our 5th wheel has a Winegard satellite dish installed by the previous owner that has worked well for us. It is a basic SD dish, model RM-DM46 18" round dish with a manual crank. Recently, due to a wind storm the elevation gear in the turret on the roof broke. It is a plastic gear. There is no other damage. Winegard no longer makes this antenna and has no parts inventory for it. I have been searching on line and at salvage yards all over for the part or a used antenna without success. I Know that domes are the latest technology but I have Direct and would have to change to Dish at home also for an upgrade to be worthwhile. If anyone has an old Winegard satellite antenna that they changed out or knows of a source for Winegard parts I would appreciate the help. Thanks in advance. You can PM me if you like.

RE: Tires after over 2 years sitting

4 tires were down 15psi to 65psi; the other two were down 50psi to 30psi (over 2 years) You stated they are Sailun tires. If so and they are 2 years old or close to that I'd check for leaks- as someone said, soapy water is your friend-, air them up and run them.

RE: Tundra vs. Silverado question

Chevy 2500 HD or 3500 HD to be safe. We’re up to 3500 recommendation on page 1! Nice work…. Maybe will get a “get a dually” before this thread is over. Lol Or maybe a medium duty semi tractor. ??

RE: Repaired Spring Hanger Brackets: Now What?

Yes, I would suggest you find a commercial vehicle repair shop and have them inspect everything and then have the alignment checked/aligned. It is worth the cost IMO.
