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. also has a bunch of Electric Razors in the $25 range. Tim

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 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

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

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 that sits in the center of the cabover of our Class C. Works well and sounds GREAT!!! Tim

RE: Help with a value please! Looking to purchase...

I googled it and THIS is the first site that I looked at. NOT good news for your seller.

RE: Towing a Miata ND

Tim Thanks for your post and the info on the model years. Are you saying that Mazda didn't produce a Miata in 1999? Yes... That is what I was saying, BUT I was wrong. There was no 1998 Production Year. What cars were produced were sold as 1999s. Tim

RE: 12 VDC Power at Rear Connector

Thanks all, I was wrong. It is NOT the center pin that is 12VDC. It is blade 4. The center pin is the reverse lights. My dinky phone screen wouldn't let me correctly see where the arrow pointed. I, of course, will check it with a DVM just to be sure. Tim

12 VDC Power at Rear Connector

Hi, Do any of you know if the 12VDC CENTER pin on the rear towed/trailer plug-in connector is Switched with the ignition or is it always Hot? RV is a Coachemen Leprechaun. Ford chassis Thanks, Tim

RE: 2019 Coachman Freelander 26DS

I would really appreciate any remarks information or advice regarding this RV. Bill, Upfront, I don't have any experience with that specific RV, but I owned a 2014 Coachmen 28QB (3 years - 25K Miles) and now have a 2013 Coachmen 29QB (2 years - 20K miles). Both on a Chevy 4500 Chassis. As was said, this is an entry level coach with corresponding quality. I have made a few mods to each one that improved the "livability" for us. I have NOT had any house construction or Chev chassis issues and would buy either one again. Please PM me if I can help any more. Tim

RE: Towing a Miata ND

>>>Forgive my ignorance but (what) is a Miata ND? There are 4 generations of Miatas: NA = 1989-1998 (No 1999 year) NB = 2000-2006 NC = 2007-2015 ND = 2016-2019 >>>I heard of some folks who towed one with a 5 speed manual though, and they had all kinds of transmission problems Ed, I towed a 2000 5-speed over 35,000 miles and have two friends who have towed 5-speeds over 50,000 and 60,000, miles with no issues. In the past 12 years, I have been in contact with more than 100 NA & NB 5-speed owners who are flat towing their cars. I have never heard of anyone with a transmission problem. IF you know of someone who has had a 5-speed problem, I would like to get in touch with them. Tim
