RE: good Sam VS AARP.

AARP was a HUGE supporter of Obamacare, apparently thinking they would get more $$ somehow. Since the bulk of the people eligible for AARP are also already on MediCare, IMHO it was an EVIL bargain with the devil with no guarantee of benefit. WAS an AARP member, no longer recommend them for diddly! The same day AARP announced their support for Obamacare I called them and said "cancel my membership right now". They reminded me I had 2 more years on my membership. I responded with a repeat of my first comment. No longer a member and never will be.

RE: RV King Topper

I full time and a topper to me is like putting lipstick on a pig. I just bought a better mattress. My original mattress that came with my Designer was little more than a thick piece of foam and cheap foam at that. I burned it.

RE: Batwing Water Leak

Throwing a Batwing in the trash? Really? What "different antenna" did/are you now using thats better than the batwing? Thanks Batwing needs to be lubricates at least once/year I don't use any OTA antenna, I'm totally satellite. I put up an omnidirectional antenna that is fixed and doesn't leak mostly to plug up the hole. I don't remember if the coax is attached to it or not, but I think it is.

RE: Batwing Water Leak

Mine leaked on my bed twice. After the first leak lubed it, after the second leak I removed it with a different antenna and threw the batwing in the trash. No problems since. Since the Batwing with Wingman attachment is the best built-in RV OTA TV antenna, I would not recommend that as a solution to the OP's problem. I never used it anyway and tired of the leaks. I can't get on the roof due to vertigo, so that sucker had to go.

RE: Where is emissions sticker??

Now Im really confused. Cummins sent me a letter saying the 2003 HR Endeavor diesel didn't have an emissions sticker. They sent me the EPA certification but doesn't mention CA? Now Im really worried. Does anyone have a picture they could email me of the emissions sticker so I ca look into getting a replacement. Has anyone utilized the low use exemptions? My fear is that I just spent $45K on a motorhome that I can't register?? I'm confused here. If Cummins said in a letter that it didn't have an emissions sticker, what are you wanting a replacement for? I can't imagine even the state of California would require something that doesn't exist. Or maybe they would.....Another reason I have zero desire to ever visit CA again.

RE: Tv mount in basement compartment

My 5'er has the TV/audio plugs, etc right inside the pass through hatch on the curb side. I however have zero desire to sit outside and watch TV when I could be inside where it is warm when it is supposed to be warm and cool when it is supposed to be cool. So those outlets have never been used. Bah Humbug! I'm really not a grouch. And that was helpful to the op how? Just my opinion.

RE: How about those after market steps for TT?

I worked for a large US corporation for many years and every year they would commission a study to see if our products were right for the market we were serving. Every single year the top three things these surveys showed in the order of priority by the buyer were: Quality, Service, Price. Price was always in 3rd place. Quality obviously has to do with the product, but also it's "fit" for the purpose it is designed to perform. Service and Price are obvious. We all talk about price, but if the product isn't right for the task and not serviced by the manufacturer then price doesn't matter. There are always alternatives to any product, but do they perform the designed task? I am a bit biased as I have the Torklift Glow Step Revolution and recommend it highly. One big feature of this step is it can be operated in many different angles, etc. I was in a campground in north Florida back in the spring off of I75 that caters to travelers going to and from central Florida. They have a unique pull through system that works great, but some of the lanes have an incline to the next lane that is pretty close and steep to the lane you are parked on and the lanes are too narrow to move over as you park. If one of the alternative products to the Glow Step was used in this situation I have no clue how it could be deployed and used due to the angle. My Glow Step worked great. https://i.imgur.com/WiGUAGNl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image.]Picture Here is a camper that was right behind me and please note he had to dig a little bit of dirt to even deploy his OEM 3 step. I can't image a 1 piece 4-5 step in this situation.

RE: Directv Questions!!

I don't think you'll lose anything. Perhaps Bill.Satellite will be along to help. I use a Slimline dish on a decent tripod and a SWM setup. Pretty easy. Agreed.

RE: How about those after market steps for TT?

There are a few different models to choose from and I wanted some feedback from those who already upgraded. Any brands or styles to avoid or recommendations on best to buy would be much appreciated. Lots of positive reviews for the Torklift Glowstep. A friend of mine had one and was really happy with it ... here's his detailed report. That looks like a good product (thanks for the link, SG!) but one of my pet peeves is having to hunt a product's price on its web page. I usually just assume they know that the price is so hi that it will scare off customers and so I just forget about the product. Totally kills any interest I have. eta: hey mods, whats up? Even tho I am logged in, I had to do a proof test that I am not a robot before i could post. I have Glow steps. They are great and work as advertised. As to the price, you may find a cheaper set of aftermarket steps but you will not find a better set of Aftermarket steps. As always you get what you pay for. Glowstep here also and couldn't be happier. I have had mine for almost 3 years.

RE: How much water to ad to black tank when starting out.?

In my 17 years with this trailer I have never even considered adding water. My bathroom sink does empty into black however. I do use an internal on board sprinkler type sprayer when I dump where available. Maybe that helps? I am now 9 years+ full time and I NEVER add water after a dump. I do boondock a couple of weeks a year and really want full black tank capacity when I start. If you are going to be using it why start out with extra water in the tank?

RE: Auxillary Fuel Tank ?

Titan Fuel tanks... I have a 51 gallon that is sitting in the same spot that the original tank was sitting in under the truck The same here with my 52 gallon Titan. It has been in service for almost 13 years now.

RE: replacement for Directv

Yeah, not. I love my DTV! I love my DTV too Bill since 1995. Aiming a tripod mounted Slimline dish is a piece of cake. I use the signal strength meter built in to the Genie and a wireless baby monitor so I can see and hear it from outside where the dish is. Takes minutes to aim. At my home base site I have a ground mounted Slimline so all I have to do it hook up the coax. Works for me.

RE: Adj. water pressure regulators

263A here. I rebuild and clean mine with CLR every couple of years. Bad lime buildup on my home base site. Full time use since 2010 and still works great.

RE: Winter camping

Fill up your fresh water tank disconnect and drain all hoses. Use the water pump for water. I agree and have been doing it this way since 2010 full time. It is much easier than figuring out how to keep the water line or faucet from freezing. I leave my hose outside, disconnected from both ends on a slope so it drains. I can then fill my fresh water tank back up when needed even if it is still below freezing. Assuming the water faucet is the pull up handle type where the valve is underground.

RE: Winter camping

Unless the hydrant is heated, it will freeze if a hose is connected. Yep!

RE: Best type of house battery

Two Trojan T-105's in series. My first set was replaced a year ago after 8 years full time service. Use the Trojan watering system and top them off twice a year and you are good to go. Zero maintenance - No, but darn close. And they are true deep cycle batteries. My replacements were the same.

RE: replacement for Directv

My DTV Slimline Dish on a tripod still works great and I plan to continue with it. Dish might get my attention at some point, but DNS is the deal breaker for me. I like having my network programs on a known channel. I could care less from where the channel comes since I'm not interested in local news.

RE: Gm 2500HD GAS VS DIESEL

I'd say I'm very close to paying off the diesel. I also get better than 10 MPG when I'm towing. I'm sure I have paid off the difference with 201,000 on my odo, but I don't care. The difference in towing with the diesel makes it all worthwhile regardless of the cost difference. And I get 12.0 mpg +/- 0.5 mpg depending on the trip towing my fifth wheel. I tow at 60 mph and do not try to set a drag strip record when accelerating.
