RE: How long before buying a toad

We did one trip, renting a car at the destination, and one trip with no car. That was it. If you're staying more than a few days, a toad really is a necessity. X2

RE: Satellite Signal Meters

The new software allows you to lock on the sats but it does not identify them. Or at least I could not figure out how and the tech dept. at Solid Signal said it would not identify them.

RE: Satellite Signal Meters

The Sat Look Lite is worthless as an identification meter for Dish EA sats. Solid Signal lied to me about that.It is no better than a $12 buzz meter. They also sent a used meter to me that had already been updated and the battery would not charge(like many others). They also gave me a hard time about returning it and took over 2 weeks to issue the credit after they received it. The last part I will ever buy from Solid Signal.

RE: Mapping/Planning software

S&T still the easiest and best. Base Camp is very hard to learn and things you have to do don't seem to follow common sense.

RE: Exhaust fan on Microwave/convection oven ??

My Jayco had the exterior duct already installed but the "Amish Craftsmen" didn't bother to take the time to prep the microwave for exterior venting. Venting the cooking odors inside is worthless.

RE: Dealer wrecked my motorhome

It is just business as usual for most dealerships. I had similar issue and of course I was out the additional time it took to repair. Just got an "Oh well" from the service mgr. Just acted as if it was no big deal.

RE: Are you Disssapointed with Windows 10

If Win 10 actually did something great I could see upgrading from 7 but 10 does nothing except add more useless and unwanted junk to deal with. MS no longer calls it an OS. It is now a service. Have you ever had a service that does not cost you $ ?

RE: Are you Disssapointed with Windows 10

I hate it. Auto updates is unacceptable. Too many programs don't work.

RE: adding propane to an 'all electric coach'

Doesn't his 40' have a generator to charge the batteries? Show him a photo of one of the RVs that burned to the ground from a faulty propane frig.

RE: Satellite Signal Meters

$300 for a used part with no guarantee on Fleabay ? Not me. :) Probably a good deal if you know the guy selling it.

RE: Satellite Signal Meters

Let us all know how that works out. ThanksThe SatLook Lite is worthless for my use. I found out that it will not lock or identify the sats with using the 1000.4 EA dish I am using. It will just give signal strength. So really nothing more that a cheapo meter will do for me. Maybe it works better for other sats or legacy stuff. I never got a chance to even try it as the batteries would never charge up. Don't waste your money. IMHO

RE: Satellite Signal Meters

Got out my SatLook Lite meter, have not used it in about a year. My dish is set up semi permanent now. Don't remember much about using the meter. The main problem I had with it was the battery only lasted about 10 min. It used to show lock and sat identification on 110, 119, and 129 the last time I used it. Now it does not show locked when I select the sat that I want to look at! I did not try eastern arc. There is another mode of operation - scan mode. In this mode it showed locked and sat identification on 110 only. Shows locked and ID. Did you do the firmware update to SL46-US ?

RE: Satellite Signal Meters

So now that Dish has changed the format I wanted to know if the meter can still show that it is locked on to and identify which satellite it is looking at for Dish satellites. I would like to know the same. I am having no luck with it locking on an already setup 1000.4 EA dish. No matter which of the 3 LNB cables I use or any of the 3 sat screens (61.5,72.7,77) I try, it never locks. Just shows the signal strength.

RE: Satellite Signal Meters

Thanx for the recommendations. At the campground is not where I am looking to use it. That is too easy and does not need an expensive meter. I was looking for one for use around the house when the dish is over your head and your on top of a 30' ladder, 100' from a TV. :) I ordered a Satlook Lite.

RE: Satellite Signal Meters

Anyone use the Satlook Lite?

Satellite Signal Meters

Are there any good easy to use signal meters to setup Dish and SWM DTV for under $250? Thanx

RE: Another new OTA antenna

Just another of their attempts to keep your wallet empty with a new latest and greatest release. How many revolutionary OTA RV antennas have they released in the last 2 years? Have any beat the old crank up? We still have several low VHF stations 2 places we go.

RE: Easy fill up near Richmond

I 3rd the FJ at 104. Heading south you make a right at the end of the ramp. Turn left at the next light. I have been in the RV pumps with a 38' RV towing a 28' trailer. Depending the time you hit Richmond you may consider staying on 95. 295 is quite a few miles out of the way and hilly. The road was rough the last time I traveled it also. But it is the way to go if traveling thru rush hours.

RE: Rand McNally In-Dash GPS

I had the same issue with the Infotainment dash unit. The only way I got it to just have GPS audio is to Pause playback if on DVD or iPOD. Overall the unit is OK but like so many other things nowadays it appears to be designed by someone that has never used the device in real world conditions. Just advertising gimmick that it has 450 functions.
