RE: American flag

agree that it's more about advertising than anything else but I also feel that govt has no business regulating the size of a flag until and unless it presents a hazard. that may be the case here but no way to know at this point.

RE: No shore power

Question from an electrical novice. If the house batteries are dead or defective, do they prevent the shore power from working? We have a 50A circuit on our house and the breaker seems fine. Plugged in power cord and got nothing. That has never happened before. Thanks for your help. shouldn't. what happens when you unplug and run the genny? and you have aero 120VAC...no outlets, no microwave, TV, aire conditioning, etc? several EZ to check possibilities: 1-you don't indicate the type, year, make or model of your RV. if newer you likely have a "salesman's switch" located near the main entrance. you might even have two...one for the coach (house) batteries and another for the chassis (starting battery(ies). be sure they are in the correct position for travel. I've seen some that are labeled ON/OFF where ON meant TRAVEL instead of STORE. 2-when you plug in to your shore power pedestal you should hear a thunking noise. that's the sound of your automatic transfer switch switching to the shore power position. the ATS directs power from a pedestal or generator to the AC appliances and outlets in the TV. the default position for the ATS is GENERATOR. within a few seconds after plugging into shore power you should hear the electromagnet in the ATS switch to the SHORE POWER position. if you don't hear it your ATS might be "stuck". that happened to us a few times. a gentle tap or two with a rubber mallet on the ATS temporarily solved our problem but the long term solution was to open the ATS and ensure all of the connections are tight, no corrosion, pitting or burns. if your 120VAC works when the genny is running but not on shore power its highly likely the issue is your ATS.

RE: Which Mail Service do you use?

our local post office will only hold mail for 30-days and they will not selectively forward mail. if we want some mail forwarded all mail from that point forward will be forwarded to that address. so we have all mail forwarded to a private PO Box where they will hold, selectively forward on our request and then resume holding for us. in the past we used a local UPS Store with mixed results. on our next snowbird trip we’ll be using America’s Mailbox in Box Elder, SD.

RE: Camping or Glamping?

a non-camping buddy of mine used to day his idea of roughing it was a Holiday Inn with no HoliDome or one with black and white TV.

RE: Eastern US/Canada/Texas Trip Advice

be sure you each have a valid passport or passport card in order to get back into the states. not sure what you will need to enter Canada. Carlsbad Caverns: guided tour and evening bat fly program. recommend Brantley Stare Park. Texas Hill Country: Pacific War Museum (Fredericksburg), Luchenbach, TX (near F’burg), LBJ Ranch tour (near Johnson City, TX)

RE: Class A high speed chase

Is it? I am no expert on the difference between the high end C's and A's B is the full size van chassis/ van front cab, aka - cut-away van. Van cab with a box bolted to the frame. A is the bus-type chassis, big box bolted to the entire frame, body and camper is custom everything from windshield back. and a super c is a c class on steroids. :B

RE: Boarder crossing insanity - CBP gone crazy...

The Op evidently lives in Canada and states that he was headed DOWN to the border which to me means south. He would not have encountered CBP to get into the US. Canada's recent legalization of marijuana has got the border into the US on high (ha) alert. i took CBP to mean the US “Customs & Border Patrol” not “Canadian Border Patrol”.

RE: Need AC help

in our MH we have the Coleman Mach 8. our thermostat fir cooling has 5-options,,, - low cool - high cool - auto cool - low fan - high fan on low or high cool the fan runs continuously but the compressor will start/stop based on the temp set at the t-stat. on auto cool both the compressor and fan will start/stop together again based on the need for cooling. maybe your Dometic is the same??

RE: Boarder crossing insanity - CBP gone crazy...

border crossings are different. there exists, i believe, no right to enter the US, Canada, Mexico, Lichtenstein or any other country. permission must be sought in the form of a brief interview and possibly a search or in some unfriendly countries a more rigorous process. US border guards do not need a warrant or probable cause to search your person, belongings or vehicle when attempting to entervthe country but i can't imagine any US or Canadian border officers just deciding to mess with people out of boredom. you may not like it and the reason for the search may not be revealed or evident but that's just the way it is. as an earlier poster said your options are few. put up with it or turn around and go back from whence you came. clicky

RE: ? Pilot & Navigator Seat Covers?

suggest you visit automobile interior companies and see if they can make custom covers for you.

RE: Boarder crossing insanity - CBP gone crazy...

yes, I'm sure CBP decided to give all RVers a hard time that day. they must've been bored. there obviously was a reason that CBP was not sharing with you. it is what it is.

RE: Amp Adaptors

I am new to RVing. I am trying to book a site that has 100amp hookup. I only have 30 amp RV. where do I get an adaptor for a 100 amp to 30 amps Adaptor. I found 50 to 30 but nothing for 100 amps. I'd give the park a call to be sure but betcha they mean a 50-amp hookup. I believe that a 50-amp hookup actually delivers 2-legs of 120VAC/50-amps. either way your 30-amp rig will draw no more than about 80% of 30-amps.

RE: 2006 In-Motion Satellite Question

yup. and once you have that a call to DISH is your best bet. i'm betting that a dish that old is, at best, a std def single lnb (1 sat at a time) model. you might have trouble finding a receiver that will be compatible. but it will all start with mfg make and model.

RE: 2006 In-Motion Satellite Question

you'll likely need the mfg and model number to get an answer.
