RE: 72 ounce steak and potato and salad

Before we all get too full of ourselves and how "Manly" we are, The RECORD for eating the "Big Texan" is currently held by a 124 pound WOMAN named Molly Schuyler. Molly ate THREE of the 72 oz. steak meals in 20 minutes flat! She is a better man than I am. Tim

RE: Use Verizon IPhone hotspot with Dish Hopper for On Demand?

Dish keeps wanting me to hook to internet...I was wondering if I can use the WiFi hotspot from a phone to get on demand stuff. I have unlimited data so that wouldn’t be an issue. I have Dish and a Samsung S8+ android phone. I also have a grandfathered Verizon unlimited data plan. I installed the Dish Anywhere app on my phone and can access my home receiver including recorded content. I bought a $15 dongle from Amazon and use it with a long HDMI cable to pipe the phone video to the TV in the RV. It works great. Tim

RE: 2018 coachman freelander 26ds flat towing

Looking at a Chevy Colorado at 4500 lbs. I worked for, and retired from, a very large Defense Contractor. One of our contracts was to design, build, and install electronic equipment into a handful of Blackhawk helicopters. Not having a real tug, for over a year we used a 2WD Jeep Cherokee belonging to the Maintenance Dept. to pull the 18,000 pound Blackwawks all over the flight line and in and out of the hangar. True, we were not out on the Interstate at 70 mph, but it worked for us. Another part of that same project was to design and build a HMMWV towed trailer and mounted 3 meter, fold-out, dish antenna system. The unique 5,000 pound trailer hitch had to be designed with a 250% safety factor. To prove the safety factor we loaded the HMMWV up to 12,500 pounds and had a crane lift the vehicle off the ground by the hitch. All 5 passed. I would bet that, for liability reasons, ALL vehicle mounted hitches and suspensions are built with some safety factor, probably at least 100%. Tim I've got my asbestos underpants on. Y'all flame away.

RE: 2018 coachman freelander 26ds flat towing

I would like to know what kind of vehicles are being towed by coachman freelanders. We have a Chevy Chassis 2013 Coachmen Freelander. We usually tow a 2-seater 2,500 pound Miata roadster. https://i.postimg.cc/pL3pzHqK/Rig2.jpg If we need 4-5 seats (read: grand children) we tow a 3,500 pound Chevy Equinox. https://i.postimg.cc/52DS0DzR/RV-Nox1.jpg What in the world would you tow that is over 5,000 pounds?

RE: DESPERATE NEWBIE

On a totally sidenote, where are you on Cape Ann. My grandparents lived in Gloucester where my GF was principal of Gloucester High School. Later (1940-1965) they had houses on the water in Magnolia. I spent 14 summers of my youth there. Tim

RE: Bluetooth speaker for TV

My Sony TV ONLY has a digital fiber-optic audio output. I went to Amazon and bought THIS - It comes with a Fiber Optic cable. It gives me L and R audio output that I plugged into a Bose Radio that is located under the TV. The Bose has a remote control for adjustments from across the room. It works GREAT!!! Tim

RE: Rear view camera

Amazon has THIS for $50. It will Wi-Fi to your phone. I bought one on close-out a year ago for $30. It works GREAT! Tim

RE: Any good/cheap electric razor for camping?

Anyone have any ideas? Under $50 dollars if possible. Nearly ANY razor will work if you use it regularly, but during our recent "lockdown" I grew a beard for about 3 months. When I got to hating it enough, I decided to shave it off. My nearly-every-day razor is one of the 3 rotary head jobs and would do NOTHING towards getting rid of inch long hairs. I bought THIS from Amazon. It is the one that is seen on TV for $29.95. It is WONDERFUL!!! It takes off the growth down to about a 1-2 days length where my 3-head makes short work of it. It USB charges fast and I have used it 3-4 times and have not recharged it yet. Let it grow while you are gone and use THIS to take it off when you get back. I HIGHLY recommend it. Amazon.com also has a bunch of Electric Razors in the $25 range. Tim https://i.postimg.cc/dVtdTZTw/Tim-Half-Beard.jpg

RE: Are the $25K lithium battery systems worth their cost?

To me, paying $25,000 for hi-tech batteries is a MUCH more expensive, but the same as paying $10 ea. for Nitrogen in your tires. Tim

C 19

All, THIS (follow the link) is an EXCELLENT explanation of how this stuff propagates and WHY we need to "Social Distance" or stay home. Tim https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2020/world/corona-simulator/ I won't make a new thread for this tid-bit. Why is the "social distance" 6 feet? As we all know, in cold weather we can "see our breath". We see our breath because the miniscule moisture/water droplets that are expelled from our lungs are warmer than the surrounding air. EACH of those droplets CAN contain C 19 Virus. When we stop seeing our breath it is because the droplets have cooled down to the ambient temperature. Our breath has NOT stopped propagating. Our exhale still moves forward and is starting downward (gravity). Our breath may still contain C 19. Tests have shown that by the time our exhale has moved about 4 feet, it has started to change direction and is not falling towards the ground. By 6 feet away, virtually ALL of the moisture droplets have dropped well below the level that other people will inhale them. Coughs and sneezes can expel/send droplets 20-25 FEET. Tim

RE: Towels

Did you stretch the towel across a hoop and make the design freehand? Machine, not hand, embroidery. Dissolving stabilizer hooped and then towel bonded to stabilizer with dissolving spray adhesive. Tim

Towels

We've been using these towels in our Class C for more than a year. I finally got around to embroidering them. I did two sets. HERE is one. I think that they came out pretty good and Sherry LOVES them. Tim https://i.postimg.cc/qq27kYqS/RV-Towels1.jpg

RE: New Source of TV While on the Road

Uhh, no, we cast at home all the time from our Samsung phones to our Samsung Smart TV without that adapter. OK, great... HOW do you do it? I'll send my $12 cable back. Tim

RE: New Source of TV While on the Road

What about casting from your phone to the TV? If you have a smart TV you can do this and no cable needed. According to Samsung, one needs a $36 "Miracast" adapter in order to wirelessly connect the phone to the TV. The adapter plugs into the phone then (probably Wi-Fi) connects to the TV. I already had the HDMI cable and only spent $12 for the generic (NOT Samsung) dongle. This video clip is exactly what I am doing.

New Source of TV While on the Road

We've Had Dish Network Sat TV in the house for over 20 years. Years ago, I'd take a spare dish and the home receiver and go through the pains of setting that up (aiming the dish) so that we would have more than the, wherever we were, local channels. That was such a PITA that we almost totally stopped watching TV at all. A couple of years ago after we both got new Samsung S8+ phones, I installed the "Dish Anywhere" app. At least then I could watch some TV programs on the small phone screen. About a year ago, I got a long HDMI cord so that I could pipe video from my laptop to the TV. That was better. A couple of weeks ago, it struck me "See if you can pipe video from our phone to the TV". I went to Amazon and bought a $12 cable that plugs into my phone and to an HDMI cable. The cable just got here, so I plugged my phone into the HDMI and into the Living room TV. I loaded the Dish app. and BINGO! I got a bright, clear, full screen image, and sound, on the TV. Now, with our Verizon unlimited data plan, from ANYWHERE, can access our home Dish Receiver to see any Dish programming LIVE or anything that we have recorded on the receiver's DVR. The phone DOES charge while plugged into the TV. This is sure gonna beat having to buy a Sat dish and mess with the programming and dealing with changes to the Dish account. We go out in the RV next weekend. I can't wait. Tim

RE: Living Space Sound System Options?

Anyone installed a sound system in their rig & if so how'd you tackle that project? We have a Bose Wave Radio Sound System https://www.amazon.com/Bose-Multi-CD-Changer-Platinum-Compatible/dp/B004JO1ZO8/ref=sr_1_5?hvadid=78065451868273&hvbmt=be&hvdev=c&hvqmt=e&keywords=bose+wave+music+system&qid=1577156835&sr=8-5 that sits in the center of the cabover of our Class C. Works well and sounds GREAT!!! Tim
