RE: Winegard Woes

Do you use the reccomended silicone spray on the elevating gear and also remove the flat top plug and spray it there? This is from the manual: LUBRICATION (Done 3-4 times annually) STEP 1: To lubricate the elevating gear, apply a liberal amount of silicone spray lubricant to the elevating gear with the lift in the down position (see illustration). Run the lift up and down to distribute the lubricant over gears. STEP 2: Two times yearly, or in the event rotating the antenna becomes difficult, normal operation can be restored by lubricating the bearing surface between the rotating gear housing and the base plate. Any silicone lubricant spray may be used. Elevate antenna and remove plastic plug from rotating gear housing as shown. Spray lubricant into hole and around edges of gear housing. Rotate gear housing until lubricant coats bearing surfaces and antenna rotates freely.

RE: Do you stand for the National Anthem?

... "liberty and justice for all" really needs some work in our country.How true. Our country is not perfect, we are imperfect people. I still stand and respect our flag and and the freedom we have as we work toward "liberty and justice for all"

RE: PSA-Wet Leaves

... Maybe it's a regional thing. ...Could be. I know in the Fall wet leaves on the road DO cause problems up here in the Northeast. Thanks for the reminder Crowe.

Only if it is not overloaded, otherwise the weight police will shoot them down.

RE: Dissolving Silicone Sealer?

No personal experience but I found this from Dow Corning. I posted a fragment from the 2 page PDF so you would not have to wait all day for the PDF to load. http://www.dowcorning.com/content/publishedlit/26-1880.pdf Remove cured silicone with Dow Corning® DS-2025 Silicone Cleaning Solvent. Many traditional solvents simply swell cured silicone; they do not actually dissolve it, making the cured silicone difficult to remove. Dow Corning DS-2025 Silicone Cleaning Solvent, on the other hand, rapidly digests and dissolves even completely cured silicone. Plus, the product can be reused multiple times, enhancing its cost-effectiveness.

RE: Towing with an Explorer, Highlander or 4Runner-experiences?

My 4Runner is a 2008 with the 4.7L V8 which is no longer offered. :( My 24ft trailer (GVWR 5500#) hits the scale at 5000# loaded minus the food. It has factory tow package with a frame mounted hitch. I have no trouble with the "hills" in Maine and New Hampshire. Acceleration onto the interstates while towing is good, much better than my former, company owned, 4 cylinder Tacoma could do empty and not towing anything. I think the short distance from the rear axle to the hitch ball makes up for the short wheelbase. I have no stability issues with my Dual Cam WD hitch. I would NOT tow my current trailer with the V6 but the V6 may be ok with something around 3500#.

RE: Cell Company

My wife and I have Verizon "flip phones". I had Verizon on an old grandfathered plan for about $80 per month for 2 phones, no data and 12 cents per text. Switched to Tracfone with their BYOP plan (Bring Your Own Phone). We pay under $7 per month each now and get more minutes AND texts than we can use. Only problem with Tracfone and Straight Talk is that they do not roam on Verizon so Mt Desert Island (Acadia) there is a lack of coverage. I have a smartphone on Tracfone AT&T service that has coverage where Verizon doesn't on the island.

RE: Can't Get DirecTV To Work in Trailer....

.... After a few minutes I got an error message 775 saying that the box could not connect to dish. .... Again I got the same message, 775..... Again, I got the 775 error..... The OP is receiving error 775 which has absolutely NOTHING to do with whether or not he has his dish pointing at a satellite. Error 775 is telling him that there is no communication between his receiver and his dish. He has a hardware connection problem. Not a signal problem. Once he gets his receiver connected to his dish properly, then he can worry about finding the satellites. BruceI don't think anyone, other than nomad.297, is paying attention. Here is some info from DirecTV DIRECTV Error Code 775

RE: Florida Hurricane I'm in the path

We haven't heard from rockhillmanor since the evening the storm hit his area. I am concerned for his safety and what may have happened to him during/after the storm.

RE: Gremlins in the bedroom ceiling lights

My lights did that too ..... just before the converter died. Measure the voltage at the fuse panel and see if it goes up and down there when the lights go up and down.
