RE: Wineguard pathway x2 question

Okay......no, we did not try setting up both tvs as one tv...will try that later. As for a comment that struck me as saying "well, gee...that's the way it is"....I don't accept that when something is advertised one way but in reality is another. If I buy something that says it's blue and I get red instead, NO..not acceptable.

RE: Wineguard pathway x2 question

I would use Dish chat. Works better than phone in my opinion. Yip..use chat ONLY...I'm hard of hearing...love chat

RE: Wineguard pathway x2 question

If you are out West use the Western Arcs when doing your setup. As far as getting locals have you talked to DISH, phone or chat, to give them your current location? it will not let us use the west coast feed if we have it set for two tvs...unless there is another setting choice somewhere....it's grayed out in the location we know of. And yes, we gave them our current location. The locals will ONLY show up when we have it set for 1 tv. As for the same shows...no. The hours of the shows are different and we can't get the local news unless we use 1 tv only.

RE: Wineguard pathway x2 question

The reason the X2 goes to 72.7 for a two TV hookup is because that sat has the most HD channels on one sat. As Bill said, the X2 can only point to one sat at a time, just like all other domes. From the Pathway X2 tech specs page: (Scroll down for the X2 specs) "Multiple receivers must watch programming from the same satellite, Pathway X2 antenna receives programming from 1 satellite at a time and moves between satellites as needed." okay, I now understand that. But say I'm watching something on the sat that is east coast (72) (2nd tv not on) and now I want to watch Jeopardy on our west coast local channels, I have to do set up again...right? And that takes a good 10 minutes....... Am I right? That's what happens to us and I find thst totally unacceptable!

RE: Wineguard pathway x2 question

okay...we figured it out. And because we're on the west coast we won't get locals. This is BS....we'd have to do the set up all the time and would lose 10 minutes of a program. Looking at the ads, I wonder how they get away with the lie...or omission of facts!!!! I am NOT happy we spent the money for this!!!

RE: Wineguard pathway x2 question

This pathway x2 is SUPPOSED to be able to point at all 3 and get 2 diff sats at same time on 2 tvs............it has 2 lnbs...at least that is what we were told. BUT...it loses channels on BOTH tvs. I'll try to figure out the EA or WA (Iirc)

Wineguard pathway x2 question

Hi all...need some info. We bought a Wineguard pathway x2 so we could watch 2 separate channels on 2 tvs (Dish)..after having for a month, hubby hooked up the 2nd tv. We aren't getting the normal sats..110, 119 and 127 on EITHER TV. Instead we get sat 72...we lost a lot of the regular shows we watch!!! Anyone else experience this?

RE: Full time/South Dakota insurance question.

Thank you everyone...I was hoping it wouldn't be a problem and couldn't figure out why I hadn't heard before now that you couldn't get nationwide ins. Thank you all again! Safe travels!

Full time/South Dakota insurance question.

Considering changing domicile to South Dakota. We both are on Medicare. Another posting about ins saying insurance is unavailable for full timers concerns me. Is it true? Will we be able to get a medicare supplemental insurance??? Seems odd that you couldn't!!!

RE: First trip out west from FL.... need help

We stayed in Kanab and traveled to GC, Bryce and Zion on different days. Do NOT try to do Zion on a weekend!!!! HOLY COW it's a busy place! We stayed at Kanab RV Corral. Nice small park. Kanab is an hour or two from each of the parks. We don't do a lot of hiking, so seeing each one for a day was sufficient. :) The drives to the parks were awesome.....we were there in the fall and the colors were nice!

RE: New to RVing - Questions

Welcome and congrats. A little research on this forum will give you many ideas. 1) we have an Olympic bbq and love it. There will be many suggestions of every kind out there. It's trial and error to find the one you like. 2)We have DishNetworks Tailgater. It works for us and is cheaper than the ones mounted on the roof. As a beginner, don't get one of those grey dishes. It will drive you nuts trying to zone it in. 3) I don't know...that's hubbie's job. 4)Yes, lock your door and your compartments. You just never know who will decide your stuff should be theirs. After years of camping, we got lax this year and left our portable Hondagenerators out. They were stolen...oops. :) Now, a little more advice....how are you dealing with your mail? Does your insurance cover everything IN the rig as well as the rig itself? Have an awesome time...and keep a sense of humor.

RE: Pulled the trigger on the Full time Life

So much to see in Arizona. Get your passport if you don't have and go into Mexico down by Yuma. That's a fun time. Go on google and do a search for "what to see in Arizona"...or whatever state you are interested in. Do you like rockhounding? Whether you do or not, check out Quartzsite's gem and mineral club. Very economical to join and cheap classes in leatherwork, rock cutting, jewelrymaking, etc. See you in the fall. We'll be there in Oct.

RE: Price it right---- Take care of it.-SOLD

We, too, take care of our rigs. We've sold 2 in last few yrs that were older (80s and 90s) and sold both for what we bought them for. :)

RE: Stink bugs!!

We were invaded last summer by a member of the stink bug family. To say it freaked me out is putting it mildly. I'm not tslking a few, I'm talking 1000000000000s. We vacuumed up, sprayed, etc and nothing worked. We finally used a chemical bomb. Now mind you, we gad vacuumed where the insides of my new white vacuum was now brown from bug juice!!! After the bomb, we walked in to a layer of black snow all over our rig!!!!!!!! I'm suggesting to just go ahead and bomb the rig. Good luck!

RE: Camp Sherman in Oregon

Camp Shetman area...the whole Metolius area is gorgeous. I don't know about camping there because we lived in the Bend area and it was a day trip. But DO check it out. Take your camera!!! You can also go further up the highway and check out Suttle Lake. A great hiking path around the lake. There is a resort there, but last spring the restaurant was closed.

RE: Hug your pups

Kinda makes you wonder what the chemicals are doing to humans, doesn't it??? I'm thinking of children that play on the lawns.
