RE: Winegard Trav'ler DirecTV Slimline

Mine did the same thing. The clueless tech support people at Winegard were never able to assist in resolving the issue. Every time I move a long distance it takes forever (so long you assume it is broken) to find the sats. If you only move a few miles it locks on in 5 minutes.Thanks for your input. Did your system peak and identify 101, but then continue to search for a long time before finding it again? RonNo mine just kept searching for any satellite if I remember correctly. Just kept spinning and tilting. After about 15 minutes I would turn it off and start over. I think it is very critical to level your unit before starting to search when moving long distances. Also be sure there is absolutely no movement. Like people walking around inside. I think the unit remembers the positions it was last at and tries to start there for quick setup. When that fails to get a signal it seems totally lost at how to find the signal.

Just have to live with it as I doubt you will talk to anyone at Winegard who understands the problem much less can fix it.

RE: Kindle Convert

Because Amazon sells it and makes you believe it is new and exclusive to Kindle. :)

RE: New OTA Antenna

They had to come out with something new to try to empty your wallet. Put RV and HD in the advertising and it will sell at any price. :)

RE: Rest areas in Ft Myers or Punta Gorda,Fl allow overnight?

I just checked on South Carolina or Georgia for my trip. No luck, the states on the east coast just don't allow overnighting. Whoops. We just stayed at the South Carolina Welcome Center on 95 South last night. There were at least 4 other RVs there. We have also stayed overnight at Florida Rest Areas. Last time, we mistakenly parked in a day use area. The LEO/Patrol came over an told us we had to move into the regular lot by 7PM or we would be locked in. We did and were never told to move. It was probably our 4th or 5th time in a FLA rest area. I think there is some bad info here. We have also stayed in SC rest areas along 95 many times. Never anything said and never any signs we saw. The rest areas that do not allow overnight are usually very clearly signed. We are heading that way in a few days. I will look closer and report back. :)

RE: Rest areas in Ft Myers or Punta Gorda,Fl allow overnight?

We stopped at a huge rest area on 75 between Tampa and Sarasota. There was lots of truck parking space and over nighting. We even looked and did not see any signs against it.

RE: Central Florida weather and almanac

Take a map of Florida and draw a horizontal line from St Petersburg east to Vero Beach. To stay warm in winter, stay south of that line. Because fronts come down the state at a NE/SW angle I would draw that line from Vero to Ft Myers to get the same temps and fewer overcast days.Either line must be close as there are sure a lot of snowbirds below there. :)

RE: Rest areas in Ft Myers or Punta Gorda,Fl allow overnight?

There is a Flying J at Punta Gorda and one just north of Ft. Myers. Both have parking areas.

RE: Snow on the ground

I thought a snowbird flew away from the snow, not into it. :)

RE: Neighbor gave me a DVR for Directv, will I be able to use it

Well, I found out a new contract is required so, no thanks. dreamer. Smart move. You are better off without that deceptive and lying company. There is a reason they try to sucker you in to a 2 year contract.

RE: Neighbor gave me a DVR for Directv, will I be able to use it

They will probably "let" you use it for a monthly fee.And a new 2 year contract. And any other fees and charges they think they can get away with.

RE: RV GPS

Your best bet would be reviews on Amazon if that gps is for sale there.I looked at that but their reviews are tied to that 1600 series and not the RV specific unit. There was one guy on here that said he liked his. Otherwise I found nothing.TomTom sure did a poor marketing job with it. :) I found that the RV specific units seem to be more hype than real world need. Blindly following, even the most expensive RV specific GPS, will eventually get you into a situation you don't want to be in.

RE: RV GPS

For previous posts try searching this Forum for `1605M'.Yes, there are plenty of them and it's an easy search.With the latest one with any info 9 months old. :) I tried to get info about it also but finally gave up. There must not be many of them out there or they work so well the people are not on here complaining about them on an almost daily basis like the RM or GS units.

RE: Camping World Install Price

Their pricing is no different than taking your car to a big dealership to get work done. They have lots of overhead to cover and will be charging you $125 per hour or more. If you can't do it find a small independent shop to do it.

RE: 4 down towing auto tranny

Since you are a Ford guy already, the Focus works well 4 down.

RE: Class C Super Motorhome

You did not give much info. What year? Do a search on here for Seneca. Every question you could possibly have has been answered.

RE: Dynamax Force Super C RV

The body style and floor plans of the DX3 look too similar to the Embark to just be a competitor. I bet they bought the body molds etc. from Jayco. Hopefully they did not hire the guys that used to build the Embark.

RE: Did you change from DirecTV to Dish???

I had DTV for many years. In the last year they jacked up my bill almost 60% and would no longer offer any discounts.The price became far greater than the value of watching mostly commercials. They also would not sell me a Genie for a reasonable price. So I switched to Dish with the Hopper. Their customer service is as bad or worse than DTV. I spent at least 6-8hrs on the phone trying to resolve all the install problems and lies of sales. In our opinion the Hopper is a very buggy, user unfriendly DVR to use compared to the HR24's we had with DTV. The rain and snow fade issue with Dish is 100X worse than DTV. As soon as my 2 yr contract is over I will be done with them and back to DTV if satellite TV is even needed by then. Good Luck
