RE: macerator stopped working

When mine went it was the impeller which has rubber blades to pump the sewage. I ordered a new impeller and rebuilt mine. Kind of an icky job but a lot cheaper than a new unit.

RE: LOCAST Receives Unfavorable Court Rulling

Locast's "FREE" transmission is almost unusable. Unless you agree to "DONATE" at least $5 a month plus a 50 cent handling fee the interruptions are so long and so often as to make viewing almost unusable. I originally signed up just to get network news but found it so difficult to watch that they sucked me in to the $5.50 donation. I would hate to loose them but, they are definitely in it for the money.

RE: Yahoo scam...?

Never click on email links. Just use your normal way to get to Yahoo and then click on change password and change it. That way if it needed to be changed you are safe. If it didn't need to be changed; no harm done.

RE: On street parking problems Portland

On the bright side, if you come to Portland there is no need to stay in an RV park just park on any street you won't be ticketed. Also several of these house-less RV dwellers just dump down the sewer grate or sometimes just in the street when their tanks are full.

RE: Almost lost reservation in AZ park

Sounds to me like they were attempting to get you to pay for 12 months rather than 3. Of course you get a per month discount for 12 months but they still make more money. There were a lot of open spaces in Arizona last year so I imagine they are trying to squeeze every dollar they can out of whoever shows up this winter.

We have had Directv for so many years I can't remember. First they took away our DNS channels then forced us into upgrading to high definition which relegated our Winegard Traveler roof antenna on the motorhome to the junk yard. Their customer support which is out of God knows where is almost no help with any problem. Right now I am only paying $12.99 a month for 155 channels because I complained so much. come Oct 1 when it goes to $69.99 I will drop them for good. Words can't explain how much I hate Directv.

RE: Direct TV revisited

Had basically the same problem when we tried to change our service location from Oregon to Yuma AZ. Directv has got to have the worst customer service in the world. They will tell you anything and promise to call back when the problem is solved. Of course they never do.I talked to 16 different Directv reps before they finally sent someone out to change out our receiver and dish antenna. Everything is working fine now but I can no longer receive Directv in the motorhome. Will most likely cancel when we get back on the road this summer.

RE: Full time with DirectTV

Directv/AT&T has the worst customer service in the world!! After they shut off the distant network service we tried to just change service address like everyone says. I kept track; talked to 16 different people (non of whom I could really understand)and finally ended up with a new receiver and a new dish. Now we have a receiver that is not compatible with our RV dish antenna. Wishing you lots of luck dealing with Directv.

RE: I Like Verizon, But.....

Weather and distance to the cell towers has a lot to do with signal quality. We have had Verizon for years but had to Switch to AT&T when we started spending summers on the Oregon coast. Used to have to drive about 5 miles into town to get a decent signal.

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

Had a subscription to Motorhome magazine for many years which I enjoyed. It seemed like every month though that it became smaller and smaller. Just a few months ago when it was time for renewal I made the decision to let my subscription expire. Sounds like I may have made a wise decision.

RE: Meds on the road.

We switched to using a mail order pharmacy. We then just have our meds sent to general delivery at a post office near where we are or are going to be. It is a good idea though to call the post office and verify the general delivery options. Never had a problem doing this. With your refrigeration needs though you would have to time it pretty close.

RE: Amazon to close down Kindle lending library January 2021

I want to say thanks for the suggestions on where else to find free books.

RE: Amazon to close down Kindle lending library January 2021

That sucks. I bought my wife a kindle for Christmas.

RE: Installing a safe?

My preference is semi hidden but accessible with strong mounting bolts through steel backing plates. I would rather have damage than lose the contents. My safe is not going anywhere unless you bring a saw and a torch. Gun either stays on me, near me, or in the safe if I choose to leave it behind.
