RE: WHAT dinghy or toad is good to tow ???

Three Honda’s; two Elements and a CRV. Two Jeeps, a CJ and a newer Wrangler. I’ll stick with Honda’s as long as I can. We drive around a LOT at our destination. The Jeeps beat you up on pot holed, rougher road. MPG is poor. Both mine were soft tops; fun but no security as far as going shopping and leaving stuff in the vehicle.

RE: 2015 Fleetwood Bounder

Everyone I have looked at was plumbed. BTW, the 2016 and newer has a six speed trans.

RE: Options for directv satalites

Your terminology might be ambiguous. The receiver is the box inside your domicile that connects to your tv. The antenna or sar dish is the device that receives the signal from space. These can be on a tripod and use the one lint at your house. Those can be DISH or Directv and get HD channels. If you want a auto seek carry out dome that gets HD , there are none for Directv. For DISH you can get a carryout auto dome that gets HD. I use a Winegard Pathway X2. Gets Eastern or western arc.

RE: Wi-Fi Booster and Range Extender??

Poor, slow wifi is the norm these days. A booster won’t improve a poor network. I have pretty much given up on good wifi and went with a Weboost cell booster. I have iPhones on Verizon with umlimited data we turn into a hotspot AND I bought an ATT based hotspot data only puck which I turn on a month at a time if Verizon doesn’t fill the bill. This works good enough to stream HD content.

RE: Cleaning a Dutch Oven after use

I clean my cast iron with a chain mail scrubber. Amazon. It works really well. No soap on the cooking surface. Dawn on the outside.

RE: Are RV sewer hose supports necessary?

I carry one. We half time. I use one occasionally for a reason I haven’t read yet and why I bought one. We camped at a campground And the dirt around the pad was red clay. After a week of on and off rain the sewer hose was coated with red clay. A real dog to clean off. So I bought a support to use when it’s a muddy site.

RE: Need some help with equipment to boost internet

I used Weboost five months last year. My experience was very positive. I quit using a dB signal strength app and switched to speed test sites. I Found that Weboost increased data rates almost always. Dramatically many times. .5/1 MBs to 5-10 MBs. I routinely stream with Appletv, Hulu and Netflix.

RE: Painfully slow internet

I’ve given up on campground wifi. I bought a Weboost RV cell amp and antenna. $500 and worth every penny. Between Verizon iPhones and an ATT based wifi puck we easily stream Hulu and Netflix. I have been in areas with no bars and get streaming speeds with the Weboost.

RE: DirecTV HD satellite reception

You didn’t mention signal strength. What is your signal strength meter telling you?

RE: Dish pay as you go, and Pathfinder Dish

I pay $5 a month to keep an active account. That way I can turn it back on with a phone call.

RE: Howdy. New Owner With Questions Not Found in the Manuals.

We had a wine cooler. We used it to store bottled water. We replaced it with a 2’ cubic foot fridge/freezer which can be adjusted to be a fridge OR a freezer. Ignore the Guages.

RE: 2008 Itasca catalytic converter & pipe stolen

That sucks. I’d call insurance. I had to replace the chrome tip on my DP and it was $200.

RE: 1990s 2000s Ford engines in motorhome

90s Ford chassis had the 460 V8. I. Would steer clear of those chassis. Around 99-2000 Ford switched to the V10. Better that the 460 but the early years had some problems eg spitting spark plugs etc. After around 04 or so they got better with more HP. Also look for the five speed trans. I forget which year. Around 2016 they switched a six speed trans which is more better.

RE: Electric Bikes???

For heavy people or people with bad backs/knee etc. the Day 6 semi recumbent bikes have bids rated for 400 pounds. Also large frames. You can get either mid drive (motor on front crank) vs hub motor. Mid motor lets you use the gears powered by the motor. You can shift under motor power The are not as heavy as they look. Day 6 clicky

RE: Dish pay as you go, and Pathfinder Dish

I bought Winegard Pathway X2 auto dome. It’s advantage is it lets you choose either DISHs eastern OR western arc. This is an advantage if there are trees or hills as the sats are located in different areas of the sky so higher chances of getting a signal. DISH is way more RV friendly. You can change locals daily if you want. You can reauthorize your sat box from your phone.

RE: Electric Bikes???

Our friends bought a pair of foldable fat tire ebikes for $900 each. They have had the most several months and used them several times weekly on long rides. Very happy.

RE: Electric Bikes???

Day 6 has semi-recumbent well built ebikes.

RE: Fleetwood dash A/C evaporator access

On my 05 Fleetwood Expedition, you take the defroster vents off, take out the screws hiding under button covers then the entire dash top comes off. We had to replace the thermostat in the evaporater a few years back. Denso has schematics and wiring diagrams on their website. Fleetwood sent me mine.
