RE: How to watch the Minnesota Vikings

I usually need alcohol in order to watch the Vikings... If you subscribe to NFL Sunday Ticket, you can watch games via their smartphone app as long as you're not in a viewing area where the game is being broadcast. The NFL app will allow you to watch "free phone football" if your game is on a broadcast network in your area. Our Roku TV has the Sunday Ticket app. The NFL app for Roku only works for games if you have a Game Pass subscription.

RE: Need TOAD advice ........................

Lol.... Maybe the reason you see low ratings on is because only people who are pissing and moaning about their car would go there. People who love their car won't go to a complaint site... I'm on my second Liberty, and I've owned two Cherokees, and two Patriots. Patriots are essentially an AWD Dodge with a Jeep label, but the Liberty and Cherokee 4x4s were rock solid for us. No major mechanical issues that I couldn't fix in my own driveway on a Sunday afternoon.

RE: Tow Dolly VS flat tow

I have also observed that finding a place to Store a Tow Dolly and the effort involved attaching the Towed vehicle onto those things appears to me to be just as difficult as installing and connecting any Tow Bar! Never had a problem storing mine even in the most cramped of NPS campgrounds at Yellowstone, GC, Tetons, Zion, a KOA or three, or countless state parks. If we can land a 50 foot pull-thru, we don't even need to disconnect. On a 35 foot back-in site, you wouldn't even know the dolly was behind the motorhome unless you looked. My wife can drive up the dolly ramps and secure the wheels just as well as I can, and has done so on trips she took without me. Somehow, I can't imagine her trying to remove the front end of the Jeep to install a baseplate... Now I am reading that they are only reliable for a couple of years ! Huh. My dolly is seven years old, and showing no signs of unreliability aside maybe from a set of tires now and then.

RE: Can't hear TV? ZVOX update!!

Sounds good. Another option for those who use a Roku (either the stick or a Roku TV) -- their smartphone app gives you the ability to stream the audio to headphones or a hearing aid if you're able to pair them up with your smartphone.

RE: Tow Dolly VS flat tow

(sigh) We use a dolly, and have for about 13 years. With a dolly, you don't a baseplate installed or a special wiring harness, which can run $1000 or more just to get it set up. You won't need to spend $1000 or more on a supplemental brake. If you tow once or twice a year, the dolly is a good option to consider. If you're out at least one week per month year round, flat towing is probably cost justified.

RE: Yet another Onan running like **** thread. HELP!

OK, don't throw away the carb.... I had the same issue -- genny would hunt and surge like crazy. Brought the carb to a small engine shop who did a full soak in an ultrasonic cleaner from Saturday to Monday. Between the vibrating and the long soak, it's been running like new ever since. (on edit) The cleaning cost me $30. A new carb was over $200 at the time. Now there are knock-offs that are under $70, so it might be cheaper but I'd rather have the clean original OEM carb than a knock-off which may or may not work as efficiently.

RE: Black Water Tank Missing Capacity

I suspect you didn't get the stock tank. 8 gallons is a lot of space... So is 30 gallons. The average adult "outputs" about 0.5 gallons per day, so a party of four adults would fill 30 gallons in about 10 to 14 days depending on how long people flush and use the sink.

RE: New TV reception

Timely thread... we just bought a HD Roku TV, but I wanted to see if we could get digital over-the-air on it. Yesterday I hooked up my 2005 era Winguard batwing antenna on the roof, but it wouldn't register anything until after I turned on the antenna gain boost (tiny power switch tucked away in my TV cabinet). After turning that on, I had 20+ channels available in fairly good quality. Our house is about 40 miles from the transmitters for our city, and it was extremely clear from channels 5 upward.

RE: Onan gas generator want start

When's the last time you ran it, and do you have a fuel cutoff or drain your float bowl?...

RE: Shower stall caulking.

The shower pan should have a 2" lip behind the walls, and I agree with previous comments -- this gap shouldn't be caulked. When I installed a similar style shower at our home, the instructions were pretty clear about leaving that gap between the pan and the wall panels open. Depending on outside temps, you might wind up with condensation which will run down the back of the wall panels, and that needs a way to escape. Caulking would trap it.

RE: Generator keeps shutting off

Now I just have to find a reasonably priced fuel pump lol. Lots of options for under $50 including the filter. Amazon has several bundles with the Airtex E11007 pump which is a direct replacement for the Onan OEM pump, and I've seen actual Onan filters for under $10. The Podoy version looks similar, but has a 90* angle fuel inlet barb which doesn't appear to work in the Onan case.

RE: Help with a batch file not concatinating it's logs

You need a thick skin and sense of humor to survive asking almost any question on here. Put otherwise, you need to learn how to be an adult around here. Not everything in life will be child-proofed and bubble-wrapped, and unfortunately the participation-trophy generation never quite learned how to accept being called an idiot from time to time.

RE: Sometime we win...National Forests and Wildlife Refuge

Not finding anything recent that says courts ruled on anything since Trump spoke about having the roadless rule lifted last week. Given how many new judges are in place in the federal courts (this is one thing the Senate can do without worrying about the House), it's likely that what happened two years ago might not be a good indication of how a different judge would rule.

RE: Where is the lever to bypass fresh water tank?

I've never had such a thing on any of our RV's... Ours appears to have an inline check valve where the city water and fresh tank feed intersect so that the city connection won't try to flow backward thru the water pump. Or maybe that's at the pump outflow... Either way... no valve to switch. If there was, it would be somewhere around the bathroom sink cabinet, which is where our fresh supply T's into the fresh tank supply line.

RE: Need to buy replacement battery

Look to see if you have an Interstate Battery outlet near you. They sell reconditioned Group 27DCs for about half what you'll pay at Sams, Costco or Walmart for a new flooded 27DC battery. A flooded battery will easily last at least 3-5 years with some proper care and attention. Lithium and AGM are great for full-timers who do a lot of off-grid or have heavy loads. Most of us don't need that.

RE: Stand Up EZ- Haul Idler car tow dolly info

Been very happy with our Master Tow 80", but we have plenty of space to store it. When you turn, something has to give. The new lightweight stand-ups I've seen don't have a pivoting plate (where the tires are strapped down), so you're probably going to put extra wear on the dolly tires, your car's tires, or both.

RE: Seeking expert opinion: thinning vs prescribed burns

Wild fires have been a part of this planets history since the beginning of timeThis is absolutely wrong.. It wasn't until man cut down the medieval forest that we had wild fires. In mother nature's way we don't have low branches on trees to promote Plumbing thru the forest canopy. Uh, no. That's just ignorant. Maybe the redwoods you cite didn't burn, but look at the make-up of places like the Canadian Shield (which has remained largely uninhabited), and you'll find evidence that forest fires have been around almost as long as cloud-based static electricity has been around.

RE: where can I do this (purchase a lot and put an rv on it)?

It's not a permanent residence, so trying to apply building codes might not be the right approach, folks... Look for unincorporated land where there isn't a HOA or other county/town rule which says you can't park/store a vehicle long term. As long as you're not dumping black tank waste on the ground, I don't see why your holding tanks wouldn't suffice. Solar panels on the roof go a long way towards not needing electricity, and you can always bring water to fill your fresh tank.

RE: Generator question

Nobody runs a generator overnight for electronics. Your camping neighbors will not be pleased. Get an inverter. People do indeed run their generators all night long. I've done it in Walmart, rest areas, casino parking lots... Park between a couple of trucks running their reefer full tilt, and you probably won't notice the Onan... And yes, it helps block out road/train noise quite nicely.
