RE: External hard drive info??????

western digital drives are very reliable. i’ve been using them for years with no failures. their passport models are small and connect via USB cable. but if all you want to do is copy 3000-photos i’d be looking at a USB thumb drive. just determine the needed capacity ans buy one a bit larger. purely a guess but a 100-gb thumb drive is likely more than you’ll need.

RE: Low power?

if it drops below 108v i'd disconnect before damage is done. but what's a 'DS' and what is a 30-amp "server"? do you mean a 30-amp outlet at a campsite? but the first response is likely correct...voltage drop through the cords. did you measure the voltage at the post?

RE: Changing oil.

Considering purchasing a Class A. Where do you get oil changes and other services when traveling? Especially if there is no RV dealers near by. we don't. I trust nobody but our service shop to do any PM on our coach. Even if your on the road for months? yes but understand in the typical snowbird season we're on the move for two-months and stationary for the other two months. the rig would get serviced just before we leave and after we get back. typical odometer mileage during that period is 5-7k.

RE: Dish TV Satellites

Dish is also on 77 72.7 61.5 .. the eastern arc for east coast towns mostly east of the Mississippi. The wally can receive them yes but needs a dish with the proper settings or spread to receive them. They are duplications of the west except for locals which in the east need those satellites for high def picture Directv also points to a different set of satellites ( different direction) if your looking at them correct but with some exceptions we were able to get the western arc sats as far east as NC and SW Florida.

RE: Broken Antenna head.

does your antenna have a "booster switch" eitheron the wall or on the antenna's directional control? if so you have a 12v antenna.

RE: Road conditions

Personally I'd buy a copy of mountain directory east and west for Android or iOS or pick up the printed version if I was frequently doing such trips. +1

RE: Any issues having slides on both sides?

36-seasons total in a MH, 21-seasons with slides on both sides. we've never encountered a park, public or private, that restricts slides to just one slide. IMO this is a non-issue.

RE: help with outlets not working in 2019 pacearrow 36u

So if i had a bad GFI, would the NOT be working. I have plugged something into both GFI's and they both work yes, they would NOT be working if they were tripped. hence my theory that you have another GFCI somewhere.

RE: help with outlets not working in 2019 pacearrow 36u

frustrating, i know. i'll bet there's another GFCI outlet that you've either forgotten about or it's not in an obvious place. i had the same thing happen in a previous motorhome and finally found the tripped outlet in a basement storage compartment.

RE: Where is the ice maker water shut off valve?

you can just raise the bail to stop ice cubes from being made but that does not shut off the water,

RE: Windows 11 ..headaches..

second the notion of bluetooth speakers. or use two sets of wired speakers with an audio splitter coming out of the speaker jack into the splitter and then out from there to each set of speakers. personally i think the BT speakers are your best bet.

RE: Hooking up to water/sewer

When you have hook ups for water and sewer: 1)Do you hook up direct to the water system or fill your tanks and drain it down? 2) Do you leave the sewer valves open or closed? What is the best way for it to properly drain? usually, no. there has been the odd occssion where we've had to do that, usually when temps unexpectedly dip below freezing for an extended time. leave your valves closed until it's time to dump. two reasons: 1- leaving them open allows odors from the sewer to eacape through your "stink pipes" on the roof into the atmosphere. you and your neighbors won't appreciate that 2- more importantly, leaving the black tank valve open allows the liquid waste to drain leaving much of the solids behind which will, over time, completely dry and form a rock hard pile many of us refer to as a "black pyramid". that will drastically reduce the capacity of your tank. when that happens you'll likely need professional help to clear it. in extreme cases the pyramid will completely block the tank from draining causimg a backup into the RV. we saw that occur in Terre Haute one year. it was not pretty.

RE: Towing 5K # with a gasser

Anyone towing a Jeep Grand Cherokee (Trailhawk) with a gasser? My Jeep weighs almost 5k and was wondering how a Gas Class A would tow. Would be towing to the Denver area from Florida and up to Breckenridge Area numerous times. Son has just moved there. Thanks for any info. 1-what is your towbar rated to pull? 2-what is your hitch rated to pull 3-what is your MH's GVWR and GCWR? 4-are you overweight on either MH axle?
