RE: Do You Need The Outdoor Package ?

If there's no one home while you're off snowbirding, why would you care if the locals at home are lost when you change DMA's?

RE: Long Term RV Repairs

Over the years with different motorhomes, we've had an engine replaced, a transmission replaced, and a rear end replaced, all while we slept in the motorhome every night. We did have to leave during the day sometimes while work was underway, but we just took our toad and went sightseeing for those times. The only time we actually moved out for a couple of days was when we had some paint work done, and didn't want to deal with the smell. That time, we just rented a cabin at a nearby RV park. We've found most shops to be very sensitive to full time RV'ers needs, and will go out of their way to accommodate us.

RE: Do You Need The Outdoor Package ?

One advantage of the "Outdoors" designation is that you may be able to use the MyDish app to change locals as you move around with just a few taps.

RE: Dish Hopper 3

For ease of use, I control the power to my Hopper with a remote control switch similar to the ones sold for Christmas lights, etc. Saves wear and tear on both the plug and me... ;)

RE: Campspreading

We were at a NY state park campground over the 4th of July week. Our site was in an elevated section that overlooks the rest of the sites, and it was fun to watch the folks that came as a group with 3-4 adjoining sites setting up all sorts of camping equipment and games. One group had 4 picnic tables pushed together under a long white tent, the sort seen at parties, weddings, etc. What really amazed us though, was watching everyone pack up to leave. In every case, picnic tables were returned to their proper sites and all trash was picked up. One group even raked the 3 sites they had occupied. Very refreshing to see folks taking responsibility for the park conditions. The only thing we saw left behind was some firewood left by the fire pits for the next occupant.

RE: Dish Hopper 3

Yes, you'll be able to change your service address as you move around either by phone call, chat session, or Facebook messaging. You'll also need a DPH42 switch to convert your Trav'ler to H3 compatibility. You could install a DPH hybrid LNB instead, but that causes some sat finding issues as I recall.

RE: Tracfone users on ATT Towers Pay attention

Had Tracfone for years, never new they were any thing but Verizon. Taken from Google: However, Verizon devices will not work with Sprint services and vice versa. GSM Technology: AT&T and T-mobile both run off GSM technology. Unlike CDMA, GSM carriers are compatible with one another. An AT&T phone will work on T-Mobile services. Verizon is GDMA, AT&T is GSM. Verizon is shutting down CDMA support: "A recent memo went out to Verizon’s distribution confirming that CDMA only devices will not work after December 31, 2019. After that date, (Jan. 1, 2020) all devices must be VoLTE and HD voice capable." Verizon Wireless To End Support For CDMA Only Devices

RE: DISH Network: Which Dish?

The dish pathway X2 used to be the only one who could receive the eastern satellites . this is no longer true as both king and the dish play maker have models that can do so , you just need to check as not all models can. The Pathway X2 is still the only portable automatic that receives the full eastern and western arc sats. The others, like the Playmaker, only receive the eastern arc 61.5 sat and still need the western arc 110 and 119 sats for full programming coverage. That's a little better than western arc only, but not by a lot when you're trying to get signals on a heavily treed site.

RE: A poll: What does 2 blinks of the left signal mean to you?

Maybe we can wind this thread up by just saying that the previously mentioned insurance agent had it right. The only thing seeing someone's directional blinking tells you with any certainty is that the bulb isn't burned out...

You may be able to match up your shroud at the link below. I also recommend their shrouds as about the best available. Air Conditioner Shrouds

RE: Best rv parks around Saratoga Spring NY

The farther away from Saratoga you are, the more likely you'll find a few spaces available. The track opens tomorrow, and everything is pretty much booked solid 30-40 miles out. I know one fellow that rents out his private RV pad about 25 miles away for $150/night for the track season, and has been booked for this season since before last season ended.

RE: ordered a Flojet 18555 MACERATOR and I have some questions

A couple of years ago a friend asked for my assistance in deciding which macerator pump to use for pretty much the same problem you have. Before spending any money, I suggested we probe the clean out drop pipe to see how far down the sewer pipe was. When it turned out the pipe was a good foot or so lower than the RV outlet about 15' away, we just dug down around the clean out and dug a trench to the RV. Then we cut the drop pipe off a couple inches above the sanitary 'T' at the house line, inserted another sanitary 'T' and ran a 4" pipe over to the RV location with an elbow, riser, and another clean out. Problem solved for about $40. If necessary, we could have cut the new 'T' into the house line to gain a few more inches of depth, but the pitch was correct without doing that.

RE: Hats Off to Marcus Lemonis

Minor question. Did the ordinance size predate the hoisting of the flag, or was it the other way around? The ordinance predated the oversized flag and the CW folks knew about it.

RE: Wireless Fridge Thermometer - Are they accurate?

We've used an AcuRite dual sensor refrigerator/freezer wireless thermometer in two motorhomes so far and been very pleased with the performance. The sensor batteries last 6-8 months and the display batteries 10-12 months. AcuRite 00986 Refrigerator Thermometer

RE: Bike Racks

There's no legal issue unless the bikes are blocking the license plate or lights. It's probably a CYA issue since not all RV rear hitches, particularly on TT's, are all that sturdy.

RE: Hats Off to Marcus Lemonis

That it's an American flag is NOT the issue. That it violates the flag size ordinance IS the issue. A true patriot would want to uphold the laws of our country. I am thankful that some violated the law and had a tea party a long time ago. You do understand it wasn't OUR country then I hope. Reasonable people work to change laws they don't agree with, not arbitrarily decide to ignore them.

RE: new TT what do you change first if anything?

One of the first mods I've made to every RV we've owned is to add individual inline shut off valves to every water fixture, starting with the toilet. There's no sense in ruining a nice stay somewhere just because a fixture failed and the entire water system had to be shut down.
