I can't RV to any of the places on my bucket list.

RE: Propane Refills

I usually get 20lbs in a 20lb cylinder (by weight). Not 20lbs less 20%.

RE: Dump Tank Extension Needed

I know the grey tank stinks worse than the black tank. I usually leave my grey valve open and have never noticed a bed smell.

RE: Wifi a long way away from RV site.

I realize that it's 5Ghz in Wi-Fi, but anybody who truncates that to 5G is just asking for misinterpretation.

RE: Wifi a long way away from RV site.

Pringles can antenna? It's a real thing. 5G and wifi are not related in any way.

More likely the thermostat.

RE: Converter Issue?

So it's just for buses to separate house batteries from truck batteries? I have a disconnect switch in my 5er but it's just labelled Red and Green :)

RE: How to search for tires?

I really don't like these personal attacks. I'm going to report this thread to the moderator.

RE: Hulu in Canada ????

With all the fires, I'm not sure you'll be allowed in the Canadian Rockies. They're turning away people from hotels that aren't refugees.

RE: How to search for tires?

I just literally 1 minute ago ordered four Maxxis M8008+ 205/75R15D for my cargo trailer.

RE: Financing Rates These Days

In Canada, interest rates are set by the Bank of Canada which is completely independent from the federal government (at least it's supposed to be). USA is similar. I don't think anyone will finance a towable in Canada. It may be different for a drivable - I really haven't looked into that.

RE: what is best way to get TV stations in RV

I have found the Winegard crank up to be pretty good near most cities. In fact, my RV has / had an omni-directional antenna that was c**p so I installed a crank up batwing. If you're looking for Canadian TV, a CANADIAN dish will be good anywhere in Canada until you get far north of 60. Bell stopped sat. TV in the southern USA maybe 10 years ago. We switched to Shaw Direct and it has been good except their only sat. with signal footprint in southern USA is de-orbiting soon (nobody is quite sure exactly when). If you travel anywhere in Canada, Shaw Direct works well. Soon you won't be able to get CDN sat. in (southern) USA. If you're happy with American TV then there are lots of options. Personally I don't know what I'm going to do if I can't get CDN TV. After a hard day of doing 'nothing' we like to watch CDN TV. Maybe our 20 year streak of snowbirding will end?? VPNs are useless because of geoblocking.

RE: Didn't deploy all stabilizers now slide doesn't fully extend

I know it's not what you asked, but my 42 foot 5er doesn't have levelling jacks and I run the slides in and out all the time. Schwintek not hydraulic.

RE: New HD 800 Shaw TV Receiver from Canada

Star Link provides internet access but not TV. You can stream TV with it of course.

RE: New HD 800 Shaw TV Receiver from Canada

The RX doesn't have to be attached to the internet to be activated - it has to be attached to a dish that can receive a signal. What DOES have to be attached to the internet is the PC you will use to activate. They can tell from where is your IP. Or use the phone to activate but they know where that is too. What are you planning on using when SD dies? I haven't decided for myself.

RE: New HD 800 Shaw TV Receiver from Canada

I forgot to answer your first question: will it work this fall? The definitive, exact answer is "Nobody knows". I'll take my receivers anyway. BTW, at the moment, the sat. drift is making stronger signals for some in Florida but it'll keep on drifting out of sight. If you can, activate your receiver in Canada before you go. You might have trouble doing it down south.

RE: New HD 800 Shaw TV Receiver from Canada

Shaw Direct updated their LNBs (or more precisely WE updated Shaw's LNBs (the lump on the end of the sick on the dish)) a few years ago. I'm pretty sure a new 800 series RX will not work with an old LNB. Yes, I had Shaw Direct in Florida last winter but only on F2 satellite (G1 is not pointed at southern USA). As F2's orbit gets more wobbly (it has no fuel for station keeping) eventually (any day now really) we won't be able to receive its signals. Ergo, no Shaw Direct in southern USA.
