RE: Best RV Satellite Configuration?

You can't get Directv HD without the roof-mounted Winegard Travler. So it looks like DISH is your answer, which I know nothing about. FWIW, the Traveler is not a height issue as if folds down lower than the A/C units. I like that I push one button to turn it on and it automatically finds the necessary 3 sats for HD. I previously had a tripod mounted antenna and it was a real pain, at times, to find the 101 sat, With that setup I only got Directv SD reception. Are you saying that these millions of houses with direct TV don't have HD? Suspect you can do it with just a fixed manual dish either Direct or Dish.

RE: Atv riding to the big tent Quartzsite

It really doesn't matter because all ATV's in AZ must be registered. If you still want to skirt the law, La Posa South on the west side if the highway will be the best A CA resident that lives in CA only and traveling cannot register a vehicle in another state.

RE: RV Under Warranty Held Hostage?

It is called the "Sunshine Treatment". Many RV and car dealers use it. They don't get paid as much for warranty work so it sits in the lot until paying customers get their work done. When business slows they work on warranty work.

RE: Steer Safe control system

I installed Steer Safe on a 1989 P30 34 ft Chev chasis and also on my present MH, a 2013 Monaco 34 ft with a Ford chasis. I am very happy with the product.

RE: Will this rig get me thru the western mountains

Have you driven the mountains before? Just let the engine do the work down the grades.

RE: Home Dish Network while on the road.

We take Dishtv with us. Your local channels will drop out away from your location. Usually we get local channels oth so no big deal to us. You can call and tell them where you are to get local back.

RE: Fiberglass or aluminum?

My previous RV was a Jayco TT. All aluminum. When driving in bad weather water would be forced between the aluminum seams in front. Never leaked in heavy rain when parked..Just when moving. Interesting, because now I see RVs that have aluminum sides and fiber glass fronts. Guess I wasn't the only one having the problem.

RE: Motor oil weight

Most vehicles have the oil type marked on the oil cap.

RE: should the motor coolant be two colours?

Some of the newer anti freeze label states that it can be used with either color. Just assuming if you had green in the radiator and someone added anti freeze, orange could have been added. The newer stuff on the market I have seen has been orange. I would check with your garage mechanic.

RE: COSTCO no longer wants motorhomes in gas lines?

For a penney or 2 a gallon it is a PITA waiting in line that long to save maybe 1 or 2 dollars.

RE: No-Start Class A

Use a multimeter one lead on starter ground lead. Other lead on starter plus lead. Read the voltage when you turn ignition to start. If voltage drops probably bad contacts. Could be eithe ground lead or plus lead.

RE: Onan Fuel pump

When the Onan repairman replaced my fuel pump under warranty I asked him why Onan would still place the pump on the generator when they realized a heat problem was killing them. He said Onan sells complete generator units. The unit mounted in MHs is just an off the shelf unit. If my fuel pump goes out again I'm going to move the fuel pump to the MH frame where it will stay cooler.

RE: Surprise effects of wolves in Yellowstone

This is all fine and dandy until the wolves leave the park and start killing live stock. Hence the reason wolves were shot on site many years ago, along with grizzlies. I imagine it is very nice to live in an area that there will never be a threat from wolves. Unfortunately, wolves have already moved into Colorado for me. Imagine walking your precious pet and a pack of wolves show up. I'll bet you won't be so happy to have wolves around then. Wolves don't kill for the sole purpose of eating. Most kills are for pure sport. Same with dogs and domesticated cats. Don't get me wrong, they are beautiful animals, but there is a reason they were removed from the lower 48. Very good point that urban people don't understand

RE: Battery Charge Line

I use a heavy duty diode in a metal box. You need a diode to prevent the toad battery discharging back into the MH when MH ignition is off. Built a diode into a box for about $6

RE: Broke down days from home, what would you do?

In a lot of areas motels and hotels have longer term rates. That would be my first option. Also depends how far away it happened.

RE: Hwy 26 from Casper Wy to Jackson Hole Wy

If you are traveling toward Jackson now you should google fire info. Last time I checked 12,000 acres were involved near Jackson

RE: External laptop coolers

Yes the external fans do work. DW uses an external fan on her Acer laptop. Her external fan is called "Connectland accessory". It plugs into a USB port. Her Acer has always overheated when purchased new.x2 Probably not needed but sure knocks down the case temp Called a laptop but funny DW dancing around in a chair with her Acer laptop on her lap :B. I have a Lenovo and doesn't get nearly as warm. I'm sure you are right though, probably not really needed.

RE: Seatbelt extenders

I have been unable to find seatbelt extenders for my 2005 Fleetwood Southwind MH. It has a Ford F53 chassis. The tongue width is 1 1/4 inch. The widest I have found is 1 inch. Anyone know of a supplier? Yes, go to Ford. They gave one to me no charge.
