RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

The US Dept. of Energy has announced they plan to draw on the strategic oil reserves to temper market disruptions if necessary. U.S. stands ready to tap emergency oil reserve

RE: Dish newbie

If you have Amazon Prime and order right away, you could have the kits before you leave and do the conversion at an RV park.

RE: “I was shocked with just how white it was there,” she said.

One line in the article really caused me to wonder what problem the "Inclusion Summit" was looking to resolve: "But, more than 50% of new campers in recent years are non-white." Tell me again what the problem is?

RE: Timing is important

Yep, good timing indeed! One feature of our Dish satellite system is that we can set locals programs that we want recorded to "Seek", and the receiver finds the correct channel no matter where we are. No resetting needed when we relocate to a different market.

RE: OTA television while traveling?

OTA antennas have changed very little since we went to digital TV (properly called ATSC). The signal coming in is still electromagnetic waves. The big difference is that the frequency range has been drastically cut. This is a bonus, because they got rid of the VHF-Lo band (the old channels 2-6) which required a large antenna for best reception. Even though they kept VHF-Hi (the old channels 7-13). Most (but not all) broadcasting is done on UHF (only the old channels 14-36) In short this means that more compact antennas work quite well ! There are several video on YouTube about DIY antennas for very little money. One thing that has not changed, the higher you ca get your antenna, the better the signal will be. You may be surprised to find out how many stations are still on VHF-lo and even find that more are moving there under the current repack plan as well those moving to VHF-hi. You can see the moves being made in the consolidation here: Repack Plan

RE: My Onan Generator is Vexing me!

Has the fuel pump been replaced recently? Perhaps with an aftermarket pump?

RE: Using Dryer's NEMA 14-30 outlet for RV shore power

Ok, just a thought to save you the $60+ for the switch, box, etc... ;)

RE: Using Dryer's NEMA 14-30 outlet for RV shore power

What you propose will work, and probably 99% of the time you won't even notice the 30 amp current limit per leg. You could even parallel the two outlets, just not using the dryer while the RV is plugged in. It won't meet code, of course, but it will work...

RE: Good Sam credit card fuel limits

I just re-swipe and keep filling. Much faster than going inside and possibly waiting in line.

RE: Snow Birding Around Clearwater FL After New Years

If you start calling around right now, you might luck into a cancellation someplace. For long term stays, most folks made this winter's reservations before they left last winter. You might make out a little better farther north of I-4...

RE: "Standard" faucet filter use in an RV?

We use a faucet mounted Pur filter as our final filter for reducing any remaining chlorine taste, lead, and mercury in our drinking water. Our primary filter is a whole house unit that filters all of the water coming into the RV for sediment and assorted nasties such as lead and mercury, as well as reducing the chlorine taste.

RE: Need TOAD advice ........................

See how the Honda CRV in that date range rates. We tow a 2011 Toyota RAV4 that's been virtually trouble free (one O2 sensor replaced) since new. The RAV4 does require a Remco transmission lube pump though, that adds another $1k or so to the setup costs.

RE: USA crossing to Canada from NY

What is your destination in Canada? The 407 ETR (Express Toll Road) going into Toronto is photo tolling or ETR transponder only. The photo tolling bill is mailed to you. The toll is easily avoided though, by taking the roughly parallel 403/401 route instead. The only other toll road I know of in Ontario is the short 412 that connects the 401 to the 407 in Whitby and is also photo tolled.

Fraud Alert for Medicare Subscribers: Genetic Testing Scam

If you are a Medicare subscriber, this alert is for you: "The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Inspector General is alerting the public about a fraud scheme involving genetic testing." "Genetic testing fraud occurs when Medicare is billed for a test or screening that was not medically necessary and/or was not ordered by a Medicare beneficiary's treating physician." "Scammers are offering Medicare beneficiaries "free" screenings or cheek swabs for genetic testing to obtain their Medicare information for identity theft or fraudulent billing purposes. Fraudsters are targeting beneficiaries through telemarketing calls, booths at public events, health fairs, and door-to-door visits." Fraud Alert: Genetic Testing Scam

RE: Refill fresh water from when no gravity fill exists

I always get a chuckle when I see these posts; and the extents that some will go to to put water into their tank. If your RV has a winterizing valve, then you already have everything you need. Simply turn your City/Fill valve to "Fill", and turn your winterizing valve to "winterize". Drop the winterizing line into a bucket of water and turn on your water pump. Your onboard pump will draw the water into the lines and then push into the freshwater tank. Refill bucket as needed. Yep, that's what I had on our previous motorhome, but not on the current one. So I added it...

RE: Direct TV satellite finder app for my phone

I've reinstalled the Dish Pointer app on several phones over the past few years with no license problems. That said, I do prefer the free Winegard AR app now...
