RE: Sharp Microwave Oven Door

RE: Sharp Microwave Oven Door

this part - Thank you for all the replies, we were able to access the broken part without removing the microwave. We had to remove 3 screws across the bottom and two screws in the front vent. Then we were able to pull the control panel up about a quarter inch and access the part. We have one on order. When we saw the part, it was obvious that the left "ear" was broken.

RE: Sharp Microwave Oven Door

Easy fix and a heck of a lot cheaper then buying a new one. I replaced mine some yrs back, don't remember the exact procedure, but I do remember I did NOT have to remove the microwave, and it was not difficult. My foggy mind seems to recall that you remove the facial plate around the door and you will get access to the bolts/screws to remove the door. You should be able to google for parts, and you tube may even have a video on the repair. ON EDIT: My memory has recollected that when the facial is removed you will see the door latch workings. The door does not have to be removed. Its a cheap plastic latch that breaks. I tried glueing it and it didn't last long, so I just replaced it. Like I stated earlier, the parts are cheap, the fix easy. thanks. on the move for a couple days. Will try to get into it once we get settled.

RE: Sharp Microwave Oven Door

>> preheating it so there is no food stuck inside You were running it empty? It is a convection microwave, I had it running on the preheat setting.

Sharp Microwave Oven Door

2007 Knight - original owners with original microwave. Finally had problems with the Sharp convection microwave this morning. The push button to open the door no longer works. Luckily I was preheating it so there is no food stuck inside. Anyone have any insight into how to get the door open? Do we need to take the microwave down to get at the broken spring or latch? Thank you for any assistance you can offer.

Reno NV to Coos Bay OR

looking for suggestions on routing from Reno to Coos Bay OR. 40 foot class A towing Ford F-150 with Harley trike in truck bed. Don't really enjoy situations with a lot of steep downhills. Have done it, and can do it again if appropriate, just don't enjoy it. We have time to wander a bit. places to see and stay along the way would also be appreciated.

RE: Excel Question - Not rv related

I pay for Office 365 so I would like to think my Excel version would work the same, but when I click on my pivot table Anyalyze, then Pivot table, then Options, there is no line for Show Report Filter Pages. No line at all; I could see if it were greyed out that maybe I have some option set wrong. Thanks for trying. I have to move on to something else now. If I figure out the solution later, I will post again.

RE: Excel Question - Not rv related

Click inside your Pivot Table and in the menu ribbon under PivotTable Tools choose the Options tab and then select the Options drop down and choose Show Report Filter Pages. Did that help? Admin I found a youtube video with those instructions but my options tab doesn't have a Show Report Filter Pages option, not even greyed out. I could do it easily on my older excel version but now that I am paying for the subscription model, it all looks different. Thanks for trying.

Excel Question - Not rv related

Not rv related but I am sure someone on here will know the answer. I have a Pivot table in excel 2016. I want to create a tab for each of about 50 options I have in my pivot table. I used to click on Show Report Filter Pages but I can't seem to find that in the new version. Can you help me?

RE: New Cell Phone..had to ask? - until you decide I bought one of these Anker battery portable charger and got another year off our old phones. Now I carry it in our backpacks to charge our phones and cameras.

RE: Directv

I believe DNS is still available for RV Accounts (not household). You can only get one set (NY or LA) and it will be the ones closest to your billing address. I have read that an LA or NY billing address gets them across the country, but others have written that is not true; the spot beam is LA is different from the country wide (CONUS?) signal. Beats me, and I have no way to verify. It may still be available but not if you can't find someone at Directv who knows how to sign you up or even give you a price for a service they have never heard of.

RE: Directv

original poster here - I called a couple different times today, something I used to do trying to find someone at AT&T who actually knows what they are talking about, still getting conflicting information from them. I think I will go back to my original plan and spend the money to convert the Traveler to Dish this spring before heading out. AT&T just don't seem to want my business.
2chiefsRus 01/28/21 12:41pm Technology Corner

If I sign up for Directv with a billing address in Florida, what network affiliates can I expect to receive? Back story I was a long time (20 years) Directv customer receiving both LA & NY distant networks. I cancelled my Directv service over a year ago when it looked like Directv was going to lose distant networks. I call AT&T today and ask them which network affiliates I can receive now, NY or LA? The representative insists that if I sign up with my florida address, that I would receive for example NBC local news from the Orlando affiliate even if I am parked in Wyoming - IS THAT TRUE? Has AT&T changed the spot beam technology that Directv used to use? I have a Winegard Traveler already.

RE: portable washer and dryer with a twist.

My concern would be how do you find something solid to mount that pull out shelf to?

RE: portable washer and dryer with a twist.

I have a Splendide 2100XC that I have been using full time for a little over 10 years now. It has been and is still great. Having read a lot of negative reviews of the Splendide product I feel most of the negative is because users are comparing them to full size residential units. They are smaller, require longer to dry (120v vs 240v from home units), etc. Once you realize you can't overload them, they are great. I use my unit as a dirty clothes hamper for colors and when it is ready to wash I run it. I do recommend you use dryer balls and do not use dryer sheets. Agree although I don't use the dryer balls to reduce the wrinkles; I just hang most cotton things to dry most of the way and then just pop them back in to finish. Don't use the dryer sheets because they can clog up the drain which will cause a huge problem. If you accept the combos limitations, you will be happy with it. If you want to be able to do both wash and dryer loads at the same time, you won't be happy; if you want to be able to use it like a residential unit, you won't be happy. As to your original question, I would not be happy with the set-up you are considering. Sounds cumbersome to me. But You might be thrilled with it compared to using a laundromat if you are full time.

RE: Toad Full size Pickup

If it were me, I would verify towing capacity before investing any money in a tow bar. It isn't just about your hitch weight capacity. You don't want to risk damaging your transmission. You might be able to pull it but are you going to be able to stop it; i.e. are your brakes rated to handle that much load.

RE: Traveling in the winter with a TT

So it is ok to run the heat while pulling the TT? Do you have enough battery power? Furnace is a big user of 12volt. Will you be able to stay in a campground once you get there? I would imagine most campgrounds are either closed or have shut off their water.

RE: Long Road trip

it depends upon if you are moving locations often during the 4-6 weeks or staying mostly at 1 or 2 places. Motorhome is nice for moving around a lot. Fifth Wheel is nice for sitting in one place for longer period of time. Motorhome with a toad is nice for touring in the local area vs a big truck. Motorhome is nice for pulling into a rest area in the rain and being able to take a break without getting out in the rain. Being able to start generator from inside is nice too. Gas vs diesel motorhome makes a big difference though.
