RE: Home HVAC Thermostat

Read the manual. Most "intelligent" thermostats say that they require 8 to 10 days to learn the characteristics of a heating/cooling system and will adjust the on/off cycles accordingly.Thanx for that. Unfortunately it is not a "intelligent" thermostat. Just an electronic. I have tried the previously recommended 3. I have also tried from 1 to 6. Still always runs too long and overheats. I may have to move up to the intelligent type learning model. For now I just put the antique back on. :)

RE: Home HVAC Thermostat

Switch the cycle rate to 3Why 3? Wouldn't that extend the run time of the burner with only being 3 cycles per hour or am I missing something? Thanx 1. You asked for help. The poster suggested 3. WHY argue with him. Try it and see what happens 2. WHY would you post this on an RV forum????????????????? DougWhat is your problem? I posted on this RV forum because there are many helpful professionals. An answer can usually be found for any problem. Not that your opinion matters to me but I was not arguing with his answer. I was simply asking why he suggested it. Unfortunately people like you can read your negativity into anything. If you have nothing better to do than stir ----, go post on TOBT.

Home HVAC Thermostat

I changed out my old Honeywell CT87 with the anticipator thermostat. I replaced it with an new Honeywell digital unit so we could add central AC later. The problem is that it now overshoots the set temp by 3-4ยบ. The burner runs far too long. Heating cycle rate is set for 5. I also tried 6 with the similar result.Switch on back is set to Gas/Oil. There is nothing I can find to do the function of the old anticipator. It is an oil hot air system that works perfectly otherwise and holds a very constant temp with the anticipator set at .4. Any suggestions? I called Honeywell India tech support. That was a disgrace. Thanx

RE: Winterizing house

I have noticed drywall cracks since we started shutting down completely. Still not worth spending $1,000 for heat.

RE: Taxes

Be aware that some documents will not mail forward. We found that out the 1st year when we were missing tax documents from the bank.

RE: DEF diesel engines

If you can find one that does not use DEF that fits your needs, BUY IT! I had one of the late model Cummins pollution specials. It spent as much time in the shop as it did on the road. Check engine lights,clogged DEF,new ECMs,new EGRs, reflashes,wiring harness and on and on. Every time it went in and was "fixed", it lost fuel mileage. The new EGR valves recirculate so much exhaust that they have to be liquid cooled. The truck dealers and towing companies are very busy with these new pieces of gov. mandated junk.

RE: Beware Winegard Trav'ler if you want HD in Northeast

Winegard still does not believe anyone needs the EA sats or they can't figure out how to program it. 129 sat works well in the NE as long as you camp in an open field with no trees for 1/4 mile. Good luck getting 72.7 in the manual mode. Many people can't. That has been covered here multiple times.

RE: And this is the Microsoft you want to just

Google - " how to disable win 10 updates permanently". You go in to the registry keys and change the updates to Disable. Mine has not updated since 11/15 when I called MS and demanded they fix the botched 11/15 update my new computer took. I told them my computer was used at many different RV park wifi's that could not handle large downloads. I also told them that I was not going to remember to go in and block metered connections. I also told them their new POS Win 10 was totally unacceptable with forcing updates. They said they have many complaints about it and may possibly change the update policy. Win 10 is no longer called an OS, it is a service. You continually pay for a service. That is the direction they are leading the sheep. They did not update Win 7 computers to 10 for free because they wanted to reduce profits.

RE: What signal meter will work?

Since this thread is already answered and hijacked. I absolutely hate paying to watch 50% commercials on sat TV but anyone that says Amazon is a comparable service is not correct. They are TOTALLY different services.The only thing similar is your TV is on and making noise.

RE: Windows 7 - No More Choosing Updates

I have not allowed updates on my Win 7 for years. Still works fine.

RE: What signal meter will work?

The SAT LOOK LITE from Solid Signal will not work. Even though their ad leads you to believe it will. And they are a terrible company to deal with for a return. A $12 buzz meter will do the same for the Dish EA sats.

RE: DirecTv Local Spotbeam Maps

Here you are.... You really NEED to install Google Earth. It has so many uses for RVers that you will wonder how you ever got along without it! http://i.imgur.com/nbVaHXYl.jpgThanx Bill. That is exactly what I was looking for.I thought I did have Google Earth but I must not.

RE: DirecTv Local Spotbeam Maps

They are available on the dbstalk website. The maps interface with Google Earth.I saw those but all I get is a .kmz file that I can't open. I was trying to find the Phila., Pa. spot beam.

DirecTv Local Spotbeam Maps

Does anyone have a link to a map of DirecTv spotbeams for locals? Sat Guys has a great map for Dish but I can't seem to find any for DTV. Thanx

RE: Dish Reaches Deal To Carry NFL Network & NFL RedZone

It's like a broken record with Dish. Every few months one channel or another is in dispute with them, then they settle.Right now they have been without one of our main locals for a month or so. I called to complain about it and they said all they could do was send me an OTA antenna so I could get the channel. I explained to the totally clueless CS rep that I am too far from the locals to use an OTA antenna and that was why I pay for Dish. I told them not to send it. Of course they sent the 99 cent indoor antenna anyway.

RE: Hopper 3 and Tripod Dish

Does anyone have any suggestions? Do Not get the $289 Sat Lite from solid signal. They will tell you it works but it will not work for Dish EA. I also found that with the 2 head LNB you have to build a little fudge factor into your aiming.

RE: Mother in laws

I would cancel the trip before considering taking a 94 YO anyone along in an RV for 2 months. That can not turn out good.

RE: Tablet, IPad, Notebook?

Laptop. No matter how much I want my tablet to replace it, it just does not.
