RE: Hulu, or something similar?

Ok. So I have icons on our dish menu for Netflix and amazon prime video. How do I connect the dish receiver to my iPhone hotspot? I went in settings and it found the iPhone, entered password but it keeps coming back saying not connected! What else do I need to do? Does your cell phone data plan include tethering?

RE: Hard lesson learned on water heater anode.

Hmm.. Learned something new! Don't open the low point drains until after the water heater has been bypassed. Thanks for the tip! :)

RE: Hard lesson learned on water heater anode.

Clogged toilet valve supply... :? Does your toilet use HOT water for flushing? I hope you're using an inline water filter on your water supply - both city water connection and to fill your fresh water tank. :W

RE: Transponder selection on Pathway X2

Yes and no, you don't need to select the transponder manually (assuming you're subscribed to the DISH network). The DISH receiver will automatically select the satellite/transponder combination to give you the best available picture quality for the channel you're viewing. The diagnostic screen that you're viewing is best used to help you locate the X2 around your campsite so that you get the best satellite signal strength at your current location (avoiding obstructions and tree cover). When traveling, the eastern arch satellites (61.5 and 72) provide the best signal strength in the eastern states and the western arch satellites (110, 119, and 129) are best in the western states.

AAAH! Comparing apples to oranges. :S The Smart TPMS (Clicky) that you are referring to is a cell phone enabled deluxe version of the standard RV TPMS - TireMinder Model TM-77 (Clicky). Twenty-two tires, up to 232 psi., with repeater for standard long trailers (>30 ft.) The Trailer TPMS (Clicky) that you are referring to is the new SOLAR POWERED TPMS designed for smaller (pop-up/utility/mini) trailers less than 25 ft long, not more than 4 tires, and not more than 70 psi. per tire. (TPMS warranty is void if the tires exceed 71 psi). Sorry, I assumed that you were comparing the Smart unit with the standard RV trailer unit TM-77. I use and recommend the TM-77.

RE: Bad air quality--finally taped a house filter on the A/C

Most A/C filters (and furnace filters) are for cleaning dust only and don't trap smoke. To clean out smoke you should use a stand-alone air purifier equipped with a HEPA and carbon filters. Something like this.

RE: Towing camper with van. What rating hitch should I purchase?

You will be a VERY UNHAPPY camper trying to towing a 4000# trailer with a 3500# rated TV regardless of the hitch. You might get by if you stay in the flat plains states like Oklahoma, Kansas, or Nebraska. You may end up being a slow rolling traffic hazard on any hilly roads anywhere else. Don't even think of driving in the mountains.

Perhaps the OP should go back to the TireMinder website and review both product descriptions. BOTH versions ( Trailer and Smart) monitor tire pressure up to 232 psi. for 22 tires.

RE: Verizon cell signal lost at night

Did you check with any friends/neighbors who have Verizon to see if they have a similar problem? It could be something with your particular phone? It's probably best to contact VERIZON. Apparently there are several things that can cause your problem. That's a good suggestion, but I'm living in a long-term hotel at this time and not too familiar with the neighbors. ??Hotel?? I would ask the hotel manager if I could test my phone reception in another empty room at night. Several years ago I stayed at a Days Inn and had no cell phone or WiFi access in my room. I got excellent access when I stepped out of my room in the hall, or the parking lot, or the hotel lobby. It appears that the hotel's WiFi repeater placements were causing destructive signal interference in my room.

RE: Problems With Newer Powered Awning

If your awning arms are fitted with gas spring structs, you may want to test them to be sure they're working properly.

RE: Dish Playmate hookup

I have a 2021 Forest River Surveyor Luxury. I have tried to hookup a Dish Playmate to the outside cable connection but it doesn't play on the TV's inside. Is there a filter on the cable line that keeps the signal from getting to the receiver? The Dish Playmate is a smart satellite dish that has to be hooked directly to a Wally receiver via coax cable. The Wally is then hooked to the TV via an HDMI cable. Hooking the Playmate directly to the TV get you nothing.

RE: Dish Network receiver question

I want to get a receiver just for the motorhome, and my understanding with Dish is you don’t need a separate account. You can add it to your existing account. I think if you go with the Wally, it’s only an extra $7 a month. But I want the DVR so that’s why I’m asking. I get my house DIsh installed next week so I’ll ask the installer then if somebody on here doesn’t know the answer. Yes, the extra Wally will only cost an extra $7/mo for the months you have it enabled. You can disable it when not needed to save a few bucks. You can attach a DEDICATED disk drive to the Wally via the USB plug (in back) to function as a DVR after you register it with DISH for about $40 and then format the drive for the Wally. DISH website has good info on how to do that on their Support website. Since you expect to have multiple Wally's, you will be able to copy/transfer movies between Wally's using a DEDICATED (specially formatted) thumb drive. PS. You can transfer from Wally to Wally but not Hopper to Wally

RE: Laptop Shuts Off

Try START> HP Help and Support> HP Support Assistant It contains several good diagnostic/repair programs that will help locate the problem with your PC. If that fails go to the HP Support Website and try the Support Assistant for troubleshooting.

RE: About to buy Rebuilt TT (previous salvage) Please help! do doctors and attorneys, but we listen to them anyway :C Nope - Doctor told me I needed to get my gallbladder removed because I had a very bad pain in my gut. After I passed the kidney stone the pain went away immediately. Good doctor but he just jumped to the wrong conclusion.

RE: No Bumper -- Where do you store the sewage hose?

If you're not a DIY'er there are hose carriers for sale like like this one that can be attached to the trailer.

RE: Cheater Vent - Air Admittance Valve

My AAV's (one at kitchen sink and one at bathroom sink) will occasionally jam open when dumping the full grey tank. Simple maintenance is to unscrew the AAV and shake it until the internal rubber seal rattles. If it doesn't rattle then I stick a thin screw driver in the internal slots and bump the seal loose.
