RE: Space Storms Destroy Elon Musk's Starlink Satellites

While costly, it should not be a big deal since they just launched another batch of 50 satellites the other day.

RE: Just Asking

Could a person be considered mentally unstable if he tried to sell his RV at this time of year? Not at all. That doesn't mean it will sell but waiting until next Spring causes another years depreciation. Pick a number you can live with and stick with it. If it doesn't sell you can still try again next year.

RE: Seat switch

See if a standard 2-way momentary switch will work. Should be available at any auto store. If that works you can either modify the seat opening or use that information to locate a similar switch that be a better fit on the internet.

RE: Antennae or booster

If the flat part of the square antenna is pointing toward the sky then these are Starlink antennas for high speed satellite internet.

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

Yes, refreshing isn't it! You don't have to check in if there are no New Post indicator.

RE: Dish TV Satellites

Can anyone tell me if all Dish TV receivers use the same satellites. I have a Dish Wally that uses 110, 119 and 129. I see others aiming their dishes in completely different directions. Just curious. As others have noted, yes, DISH has 2 sets of satellites. You might also see folks pointing their antenna in a different direction as they are receiving the DirecTV signal at 99, 101 and 103.

RE: TV connection from front TV to bedroom class A

They do care and it is not allowed as you are providing free services to someone other than those in your home.

RE: TV connection from front TV to bedroom class A

When you hand a receiver to someone else so they can receive programming without paying their own fee, that is not allowed by DISH and considered theft of services. Without that "law" 1 person could sign up for an account and pass out receivers to all of his neighbors. Much like the problem Netflix is having with password sharing that's costing them billions.

RE: TV connection from front TV to bedroom class A

We have the Hopper 3 and 2 wireless Joey's. One Joey is in our bedroom and the other is in the den/bunkroom/office/cat room/guest room. I can take the wireless Joey and TV out of the combo room and set it up outside IF I want to watch TV outside. I have this in the house I guess I could take it with me in the MH. I did get the parts that I posted and it is working. When I talked to Dish the lady said the wireless Joey would not work with my Walley receiver in the MH?? Whatever you have working at home will work in your RV "as long as" you have the same antenna type, wiring and switches connected to the RV. This sometimes takes a bit of work and is likely not a standard setup you would find in an RV unless you had a really well qualified installer do the work in the RV.

RE: TV connection from front TV to bedroom class A

We even loaned a Joey to neighbors in a RV Park once and they watched any channel we subscribed to. Ever heard the phrase "theft of services"? Please don't get me wrong, we can all do as we please. We all speed, run stop signs and cheat on our taxes but calling it what it is is just what it is.

RE: Solar Removal (advice/ideas)

Just FYI, you might want to say any RVer who understands RVing (not RV's) AND has any interest in extended dry camping would appreciate the value of your solar system. I understand both RV's and RVing and have no use for, or interest in, spending any money on solar.
LouLawrence 09/06/22 06:27pm General RVing Issues

Just to recap, this class a is in a Rv dealer in Berkeley they did the walk around and all looks good with condition etc except they stated “sold as is “ and there is a check engine light. I asked if they could read the error and let me know . They informed me they don’t have a diesel guy at the Rv center. If you were purchasing what would you do next I’m down in Florida, may be nothing have a call with the sales person today to do a walkthrough and discuss ? What I would do is NOT buy this coach! You could be looking at a complete engine rebuild or replacement. With the check engine light on it could be anything drive train related. Don't fall in love with a hunk of plastic when there are so many good choices out there. A mechanic reading the error code will be able to give the mechanic a good place to start, he can't be sure that fixing that one problem is the only problem that exists. You are threading on some scary water there.

RE: How To Clean This

You should be able to cut the caulk with a razor knife at the joints and peel the vent off. You can then use a plastic putty knife (scraper, something) to get the majority of the remaining caulk off and reinstall with the same type off caulk as you will likely not be able to remove it all.

RE: New smartphone direct-to-Starlink satellite service

The cell phone to satellite future service should be usable while traveling down the road, just not a tree covered road. Since there is not yet even one of these satellites currently in orbit, when this is available and what it will be when it does become available is still a big question to be answered in the future.

RE: Funny water pump leak

In order to post a picture, I need to put it somewhere else on the web, and then link to it, right? I’m not sure where to put it. You can upload the picture here and then post it. Go to the DIY topic and the instructions and link are right there. Quick and easy.

RE: hot spots

Gotta love my Mobley and a Netgear hotspot. With unlimited data and $23/month it's a winner. No longer available, of course, but great if you grabbed on awhile back!

RE: dometic penguin II shroud removal

Yep, likely just stripped. You can slip something between the screw and the shroud to act as a wedge and turn screw slowly. The good threads behind the stripped ones should grab and allow you to unscrew. Google remove stripped screw and you will find lots of other ideas.

RE: How safe is etransfer - selling big items?

Transfers like Zelle or similar are very safe and is a transfer to/from your bank. No worries. Wire transfers as well are very safe. You can call your bank or check your account online to see if the money has arrived. If you have concerns you can call your bank and make sure that transfer is safe.

RE: Should I level the RV?

You don't say how much of a slope is involved. A bit of a slant might be just fine. I believe the guideline is something around 2.5 degrees out of level is still OK to run the fridge. It certainly doesn't have to be perfectly level. Additionally, as mentioned, if the fridge is off while stored out of level you will be able to get it level (close to level) and turn the fridge on.
