RE: Just an observation and wondering

The same battery that motorvates you from point A to point B, but in the summer, they better be closer together, with fewer traffic standstills. Correct, in hot or cold weather your mileage between recharges will decrease by about 50%. Just one of the things they don't tell you in the advertising, like for every 10mph you drive over 35mph your recharge mileage decreases by 8%. So when you drive 65mph your recharge mileage is decreased by 24% from the advertised optimum mileage between recharges.

RE: Winegard X2 storage bag

My X2 has been riding in the storage compartment as is for the last 8 years. It still works every time I need to use it. These things are pretty rugged, even survived a hail storm, so protection isn't really needed.

RE: Suggestion to purchase an SUV to tow behind my Class A!

The easiest to tow, most reasonably priced SUV available is a Chevrolet Equinox. Look for a 2017 to 2010 model either 4cyl or 6cyl. I prefer the 6cyl models due to their hydraulic steering and better performance. 4down towable, no modifications needed just hookup, pull one fuse, put in neutral, turn key to off, DO NOT REMOVE THE KEY, and your ready to go. I have one and have towed it over 25,000 miles with no problems.

RE: Good iOS app for RV navigation?

What is a good RV navigation iOS app? MUST take into account: length, height, weight, and propane. PREFER take into account traffic and work offline (except for traffic.) Suggestions? If you want all those features you will more than likely need an RV GPS. Don't think you will find it in an app. If you do please post what it is. CoPilot RV is the app your looking for.

RE: Death Wobble Continues ....

Set caster to upper end of specified range. This would be the proper repair except most vehicles today have non-adjustable Caster and Camber settings.

RE: dish pay as go plan

I have never paid an activation fee. When I camp, I call DISH and they turn it on. At the end of 30 days, it goes off. On the next trip, I call again and repeat. Agree, that's how I do it... the poster above me stated that they "pause" it after each weekend.... I was always told that pausing will create an activation fee? I will try to call again.. You DO NOT call them to pause or suspend the account. That will result in a monthly $10 "Maintenance Fee" to keep the account active. What you do is call them and tell them to CANCEL or DISCONNECT your service. The wording you use is critical to getting a credit for the unused portion of your prepaid month. Then you will receive a remaining balance credit on your account against the charges when you want to restart your service or your can ask for a refund of your credit balance. I have done it this way for the past 10 years and never paid for more than the partial month I used.

RE: SR19 from Sutton, WV to Beckley, WV

It's doable, it will be you and some cars and plenty of coal trucks. The road is not in the best of condition in some areas, but that is most of WVA's roads.

RE: 12v power problems

The problem is your HWH hydraulic pump master solenoid is starting to go bad. Here is a replacement HWH Master Solenoid. This solenoid mounts directly on the pump motor. While your at it get 2 and replace both solenoids on the motor at the same time to prevent other problems later.

RE: 6 passenger toad for gas rv

Back to the OP's question, I would suggest the FORD FLEX. It has 3 row seating for 7, is 4down towable, and weighs slightly less than 5000 lbs. Perfect for what you need.

RE: Diesel Engine Owners- I've a DUSTED engine, so cummins says

Get the fan fixed and get out of there. Is the engine using oil? When diesels get dusted they use oil and or coolant. If it is not using any excessive amounts of either it's OK.

RE: Brought home a 2021 Coachmen Mirada 35ES

If you bought at General RV and financed the coach through them review your financing paperwork very closely. If you financed for 240 months, check the paperwork for smudges on the banks copy in the months column. General RV is currently under investigation in several states for "financing irregularities".

RE: need 411 on Winegard Pathway X2 PA6002R Wally Receiver

The pathway X2 is about the best portable dome antenna available for DISH Network. It is capable of receiving either DISH Eastern Arc or Western Arc satellites which makes it easy to set up in somewhat obstructed locations. The Wally is DISH's basic HD receiver and if coupled with a external hard drive you can have a DVR. The $200 price for both is a good deal.

RE: Newby Satellite Questions

My 211Z was put in service 8 years ago and is still working just like new with an addon hard drive. The Pathway X1 will work fine for DISH especially in the western USA. The only time you may have problems is in the upper northeast due to the western arc 129 satellite elevation angle being low, and some HD local channels only being available on the eastern arc satellites.

RE: Satellite Antenna Installation in Seattle Area

The best open face automatic DISH antenna is the R F Mogul Eagle. If something goes wrong it is repairable on the road unlike the Winegard units that have to be removed and sent back for repair. Any parts needed can be purchased from R F Mogul unlike Winegard that will not sell you repair parts. R F Mogul Eagle Where to buy

RE: Dish Network Wally Receiver

I take it that the 211Z does not do this nonsense. Does the 211Z work with a tailgater? The 211Z does the exact same update routine as the Wally. ALL DISH receivers do an update routine once every 24 hours. It cannot be overridden only the time it does it can be changed.

RE: Dish rec’r No Satellites found using new 2000w inverter

Try this, disconnect the SAT IN coax and then try to run the "Check Switch" routine. It should then tell you it couldn't find any satellites do you want to save these settings? select yes. Now reconnect the SAT IN coax, select southern California and re-run the "Check Switch" routine. It should show the proper satellites 110-119-129 and the switch routine number. Your receiver should work now.

RE: Thor Structural Warranty Experience

Don't know for sure if Thor own's Forest River? But I brought a NEW Travel Trailer sometime ago & it was JUNK... Forest River is owned by Warren Buffet through Berkshire Hathaway.
