RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

This is one of those cringe worthy moments after showing the wood sink idea to the DW. I wonder how it will ride on those upcoming wooden tires.

RE: The big anti virus lie

I do practice good av management, never click on unknown links do not open any links in email that you did not expect Hopefully, that means you clicked on the OP's link and you still don't know what it went to.

RE: Windshield covers

Shade Pro inside shades do not work nearly as well as those installed externally. Additionally, the MagneShade is NOT "the same hassle" as the snap on's. I have snap on's and they work for me but I don't have a super tall windshield like many of the newer RV's. For those, the MagneShade can be installed safely while standing on the ground. You would need a ladder to install the snap on's. I like both as they both perform substantially better than the inside stick-on units.

RE: 50 Amp plugging into 30 amp service

There are also adapters that will allow you to plug into 30 amp campground plugs (rarely available, but there are some) and use your 50 amp plug with that. You still don't have 50 amp service but you would have 30amp service on each leg (so nearly 60 amp if balanced properly). 50 amp cheater adapter This generally will not work if you plug into a 30 and a 20 if the 20 amp circuit has a GFCI as it will usually trip immediately.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I like having the windshield covered AND being able to see out so, for me, that's the mesh screens secured to the outside of the windshield. However, when we have really hot days high 90's+ we also drop a blackout shade inside the windshield which reduces the additional heat pretty dramatically.

RE: Towing Capacity

Because my wife doesn’t like the Jeep. Happy wife, happy life. Really? None of them? Cherokee, Grand Cherokee, others (I hate the Wrangler as well). Of course, Jeep is not the only other option. There are a plethora of cars/SUV's that are towable 4 wheels down. Sorry, hope this does not distract from the OP's original topic.

RE: RV navigation systemsl

Throw out the Garmin style GPS. Your smartphone and Google Maps and/or WAZE is all you need. Additionally, the information on Google Maps is years ahead of anything available on the standalone GPS's. As an example, I-70 here in Denver was closed for the weekend and Google Maps showed that closure and the correct route to avoid it. This would be impossible with a Garmin.

RE: Winegard 360 replacement

The Rayzar automatic has 2 TV outputs and works great on both TV's. You could also add a splitter to power 3 or 4 if necessary. The dome on the roof has 1 coax output to the power supply input and 2 outputs for the TV's.

RE: RV Mattress

Texas Mattress Makers and Denver Mattress both make custom RV mattresses. However, you are going to need a tape measure to determine the size (length, width, height) that you desire. It might not be the same as you have, which is the beauty of the word custom! Try different types of materials and thickness so you won't have to do this again.

RE: Winegard 360 replacement

I had the Batwing on my previous coach and was disappointed that my new coach had the Rayzar Automatic. However, I have been very happy with this antenna compared to the Batwing. Is it as good? No, but it's pretty dang good for a dome antenna and I don't have to worry about the wind or about remembering to stow it. I did change the roof setup to include the mount that raises the antenna about 12" above the roof (less interference from the A/C units). It is a directional antenna with a rotating antenna inside the dome so it performs substantially better than any of the omni-directional antennas. You know.....equally bad in all directions......

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Tank and tank connections leak for a lot of other reasons other than cold. Not YOUR tanks, but certainly other people's tanks.

You are going to want to update to a Rayzar Automatic. Rayzar Automatic

RE: Approximate fuel milage of these 2 motorhomes?l

Even if you got an extra 3 MPG choosing one over the other. Traveling 10,000 miles per year (highly unlikely you would travel that much) the year difference would be minimal. At 10 MPG you would use 1000 gallons or around $3500. If you only got 7 miles to the gallon you would use 1429 gallons or around $5000. That $1500 per year is not going to make any difference in the overall cost of ownership or make the RV any better or worse. Floor plan, floor plan, floor plan #1 and ride, handling comfort #2 (that means the improvements brought on by owning a diesel pusher.

RE: AT&T anounces truly unlimited wireless data plan

AT&T is still honoring my $20/mo unlimited data Connected Car Plan with the SIM in a Netgear hotspot instead of the original Mobley device. I don't expect it to last forever, but I'll take it while it does... Me, too!

RE: Looking at purchasing a safe and Reliable Motorhome

For a coach in that price range I would be looking at a gas coach. Especially since you only plan to use it for a short period of time each year, You will be parked way long than you will be driving on your trips so finding a good floor plan in an affordable gasser is likely your best starting point. Oh yeah, and no air brakes necessary!

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Liberty Coach, the maker of million dollar + Prevost conversions, made the mistake of using aluminum holding tanks and they failed with time. Yes, it takes a lot of time, likely 10 years or so, but the owners had to replace the tank with stainless steel as the tank (yes, 1 tank for black and grey) was mostly vertical in nature so replacing with an appropriate plastic tank was not an option.

RE: Connecting Winegard Traveler to Dish Hopper

Since everything is still SD using the RF modulator should work. You will only be able to watch the same channel on both TV's but for many folks, especially if you watch very little TV, this is just fine. If you ever want to add the option to add a 2nd receiver/Joey you will want to take the BOMB (Box Of Many Buttons) out of the satellite TV loop.

RE: Connecting Winegard Traveler to Dish Hopper

The RF modulator will take your HD output from the Hopper and convert it to SD even if the TV is HD capable. I was assuming you would like to have HD TV on your TV's. You were clear but a simple answer is not available.

RE: AT&T Netgear AirCard 815S - Tethering to laptop

The router should work just fine without a battery. I left it plugged in with the battery and the battery did swell and I had to order another. I then left the battery out and only but it back if I had to take it out of the RV. I would leave the battery out and the router plugged in and call it a day. You don't have to plug it into your computer, any charging cable will keep it alive.
