RE: Directv access card

Bill I agree with you on this, I did mistype HD for the dome when I should have typed SD. I did edit that. I do know to get HD is to change up on my equipment (update) and bend with the wind and not push against it. Thanks for the information. JimR

RE: Directv access card

Bill What surprise? Right now anything is possible. I do have a DTV HD receiver and a Genie but I use the SD D12 only because of the Sat Antenna required for the HD. In other words the little 18 inch dish is easy to set up and where I am at now I am aiming through the trees to hit sat 101. Also I have a King Dome that locks in very well on the SD programing. I do know soon that I will need to change but right now will wait and see. Thanks JimR

RE: Norcold Refrigerator Claims

Hey Ray Just received my last check $113.69. On your refrig it has lasted awhile, mine quit a couple years ago and I replaced it with a Samsung. So far so good but I am not boondocking like I did in the early days. Stay or try to stay cool in Barstow. Question what RV parks are in Barstow besides the one by the drive in, the KOA and Desert Spring at Yermo?? JimR

RE: Directv access card

Update on Monday called DTV asked "Where is my access card you sent" well they sent it to the service address but I am not there as was discussed on the first call. They are resending a new one, will let you know. Funny or not why they, DTV, will do something after being giving info on where to send things and DTV agreeing that they were not sending to the service address but to to me. I just do not get it. Terrible service. JimR Update Called today and they are sending me a new one this will be number three. Will see JimR Update again: Just received this email from AT&T if you have read my posts and updates you will read where AT&T has send my card out, or did they. Very confused following is the email received. "On June 15, 2020, we mistakenly sent you an email regarding the replacement of expiring Access Card(s) for your DIRECTV® equipment. While you will still need to replace the Access Card(s), we are unfortunately not ready to ship the replacement card(s) yet. However, you will not lose any programming during this time. Please watch for a follow-up email later this summer when we are ready to ship you the replacement card(s). The new cards will be sent via Fedex, and there is no cost to you. In the meantime, there is nothing you need to do. If you have any questions or concerns, please call us at 866.445.1144. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused." I do think that AT&T does not have it together on this one. JimR

RE: Norcold Refrigerator Claims

Total amount to be paid is $916.00 or 25 shares at 37.11. Yes I know the math is wrong but that what it says. Checks received: First check $228.90 2nd $307.52 3rd $307.52 Total so far $843.90 less about $916.00 leaves maybe $80.00 to $100.00 dollars left on incoming check. This is for me not sure about any one else. jimR

RE: Norcold Refrigerator Claims

The way I understood it was the last payment would be less. I would need to look at my correspondence from them to be very sure. JimR

RE: Camping World takes too long to ship

Ordered a surge protector from Camping World four days ago. As of this writing it still has not shipped. Note to self, next time order from Amazon, I could have had it two days ago.Hate being in a campground with out a surge protector . Unless you have prime, Amazon is also taking longer to ship it is not just Camping World. Throw in Walmart and Target too. I know I have orders from each on Tuesday and I now have some stuff with more coming in July 2 to the 9th. JimR

RE: Directv access card

Bill Yes I understand and do believe you. They (2 DTV representatives) continue to say that the card will convert the receiver to HD when I asked the question will the card covert to HD with the old receiver and they said yes. Go Figure. Seems like this is the year for changes and letting go of the past normals and stepping out into the unknown. As far as them sending it wherever there is a time out on the card and failure to act will cost $20.00 for a new card. So hope they send it to me and not the service address. JimR

RE: Directv access card

Well I ordered the card so will see. They are wanting to send to the service address but I am not there while in the RV so they are trying to figure that out. ??? JimR

RE: Directv access card

So Bill let me get this sorted out in my head. You are saying that after Aug 31, 2020 I will not be able to get DTV at all even if the new card is installed? DTV said it would convert the SD to HD ?? Not sure I believe that but?? I also need to correct that I have a D-11 a silver colored recever that came with the RV not a D-12 Thank You for the reply Bill JimR

RE: Directv access card

If you are currently using a SD only receiver like a D12 or R series DVR (actually any receiver model that does not start with an H or HR) then DTV is correct that you will need new hardware to continue to receive the DTV signal when they end the SD broadcast in the near future. I do have a D12 receiver with a 18 inch dish antenna. Hope all will work after wards. JimR

RE: Directv access card

Rather than do nothing, call DirecTV and ask them if this is legit and ask them why? Chuck Hello I did call and was told that was not for a card but for an upgrade. She really did not seem to know about the email. I did call the number and was told my wait time was 42 minutes I hung up and then deleted the email. Bottom line I think it is all BS DTV trying to get you on a new contract and I will wait and see just like the end of DNS "NOT". JimR ps I think they (DTV) is suffering from a rectal cranial inversion.

RE: First Aid Kit Contents

Get or make a good kit. LOts of sterile dressings of various sizes 4x4, and larger, a box of multi-size bandaids. Forceps, scissors, Kotex box to be used as dressings. Gauze (Kling) to wrap bandages. Benedryl, Tylenol, wire splint (folded) Antiseptic soap and treatment. Ace bandage, sling. I have to ditto on this. One thing I have put on a wire splint on a woman with a broken forearm worked well. But the feedback I got was that it does not work well with xrays. JimR

RE: Chipmunks

To answer your question if you are staying awhile like I did for the summer hosting in Oregon I did the following. I made a cage around the MH by using 1 x 2 x 8 ft long furring strips and hardware cloth 1/2 inch. I made frames from the furring strips with the hardware cloth attached using staples with an Arrow stapler. I measured along the bottom of the MH in 8 foot sections measuring the clearance from the ground to the MH on each end of the 8 foot section and then made the frame. I then inserted the frame in between the MH and ground. I made the frames a little taller so it was a tight fit. For the wheels I used my wheel covers (MCD they cover the wheel well) as a template I cut the hardware cloth and used pipe insulation ( 3/4 inch) to go over the end of the hardware cloth so not to scratch the MH and made the fit tight and holding. For other openings I just cut the hardware cloth to fit and attached using wire ties. The front of the MH was a little harder to figure out because of the curve of the bumper but using just the hardware cloth with no framing worked very well from left to right on the bumper. Using 2 x 4s cut into 2 or 3 foot long sections and attached to the cloth on the bottom so that they could be used as a hold down using rocks on them. The top just fit behind the bumper. Simple hand tools and a screw gun or drill will work but the one tool that I just happened to have was a pair of tin snips to cut the hardware cloth. WEAR GLOVES Cost was a little over $100.00 the first year less the second year. Well worth the cost. Time involve a couple of afternoons between duty rounds at the camp. JimR
