RE: Which old motorhome to buy

Definitely the older class A route! If you have never seen or heard of a Barth, suggest you visit

RE: Locast TV suspends operation.

Thanks Pianotuna, I will check that out. Doesn’t seem to carry major networks (NBC, CBS, ABC, etc.) which is what is need to keep the wife happy. May be good for other kinds of entertainment though.

RE: Locast TV suspends operation.

Thank Oldman2 for the repost of the topic. As we travel, we usually are satisfied with OTA broadcasts. Many times though, we are in an area where OTA is not available. It would be nice to be able to get live, local news via the internet. We have had both DirectTV and Dish network and have dropped both due to the ever-increasing cost. We have not been able to find any service through which we can stream live TV.

Locast TV suspends operation.

BUMMER! Just got notice that Locast is suspending service immediately in light of the court decision against them. This is sad news as this service was invaluable to us RVers. Sure hope they can resolve the issue and be back because it was great while it lasted. Is there any other LIVE TV services out there? We use the individual network apps but a lot of networks are not available to stream online.

RE: slow toilet leak

I second the motion for using silicone grease. Just make sure the seal and the knife blade are dry before applying a liberal amount of silicone grease to both. I have used this method for years and it saves a lot of work and expense.

RE: Too old to drive ?

I think you are wise to be aware of your abilities or the lack thereof. At 77, I realize that I am no longer on the younger side of life and find that I am no longer confident piloting a large rig. This realization has brought me to appreciate a smaller version in the form of a B van. I still enjoy driving, but am intimidated by the size of the old class A. The B van gives me the freedom and convenience of a motorhome, but without the tension and apprehension of the larger rig. It may be an answer for you—to each his own.

RE: 1977 Dodge Sportsman

Hi and welcome to the group: Good advice about new gas and Seafoam. Stalling is probably carburetor related and doubt that spark plugs will solve it. A good tune up by a trusted mechanic seems to be a good start. Your roof is probably aluminum and dicor self-leveling is a good start. Do some reading and researching on this forum and you will come up with much good advice. Above all, enjoy it and have fun!

RE: Dometic Oven Not Hot Enough

Suggest you YouTube adjusting the oven. There is an adjustment screw under the control knob. These ovens are “clunky” best. After much effort, we can only get ours to within 50 degrees of the set temperature. We use it, but not often. Most times you will find it being used as a storage cupboard for pots and pans. I agree with wa8yxm—use a countertop unit. Walmart has many to choose from and from experience, we like the ones made by Oster—several sizes and the most expensive one is about $100.

RE: Is this doable or am I overlooking something??

As to what CharlesinGA says about campground restrictions—campgrounds are all about the money. If you find one that restricts outlet usage, you could ask to be allow to use more than one if you are willing to offer to pay an additional charge for electricity. Also, sometimes it is easier to ask for forgiveness than for permission!

RE: Adding a new 120 vac circuit and outlet

I agree with Lwiddis. I learned the hard way not to pull everything through the 30 amp RV plug. A separate extension fished out through the slide seal and back to the pedestal solved the problem. Good job on the wiring and outlet though.
