RE: 3rd Issue of RV Magazine

I really enjoyed the Motorhome mag. This new one I canceled after seeing the 1st issue. They should have left the 2 mags as they were and not try to cut costs by combining them.

RE: CC&R dated 1973 says no RVs, trailers, boats can be stored

Do not buy that house and explain to the owners why not. My city council passed an ordinance banning all trailers, rvs, boats, etc. I fought hard for my Class b in my drive and after 2 years and getting 3 council members elected I got a variance so I am good buy cannot replace my rv.

RE: Traveling with a Dish Tailgater

I have used my tailgater in WY and SD without a problem. I take my home receiver a 211k which works with a tailgater. Not all receivers do. Dish keeps wanting me to 'upgrade' to a Wally that does not work with one. Don't know why you believe that since the Wally is made specifically for mobile dishes. It is smaller, lighter, and faster than the 211k. It is the Hopper that doesn't work with mobile dishes. I was typing from memory which obviously is not good. Thanks for the correction. It is the hopper then they keep offering me.

RE: Where to watch rocket launch in or near motorhome?

Went back to the same spot last week and viewed a launch! We were at EG Simmons outside Tampa, and heard about the launch on the news We drove over there in a rental car for the 10:59 pm launch. The place was deserted. We are 1 for 3. Next I want to see a Falcon Heavy launch. I've stayed at EG Simmons numerous years. How is it now? Crowded? All the restrooms open & working?

RE: Using RV generator as backup for house?

I don't know how you hook a furnace up to an extension cord. You didn't check my earlier posted link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2FDO3SVnVE

RE: Using RV generator as backup for house?

I have used my portable Honda 2000 when I've lost power for up to 4 days. I used extension cords 7 powered my fridge, some lights, TV and DISH sat box, and computer. I even ran one cord to my neighbor. I have not lost power in winter and that concerns me. There is this video on how to wire the gas furnace to be able to use an extension cord: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a2FDO3SVnVE I am also thinking of having a transfer switch like the posted one installed.

This will give the length": https://www.nadaguides.com/RVs/1984/Xplorer/Motorhomes I tried to find an ad for it, but no luck. I've had a 1997 for 20 years and love it.

RE: Brady Bowl 10

I saw every Michigan game Brady played in and root for him. He is truly the GOAT!

RE: LifePo4 Charge Performance

otrfun, I have a Class B and space was the reason for me to get Lifepo4. I fit two 100AH batteries in my small battery box which could only hold one 105 AH lead acid. Unfortunately, shortly after getting them I've had a health problem which has prevented me from using them much. I hope to do so starting this April.

RE: Alternators and Lithium Batteries

My alternator cable to the house batts has to go through a battery isolator and then two 40 amp breakers. That would seem to limit the risk.

RE: It's a wonderful day: COVID vaccinations

I got my 1st shot on Wed at Henry Ford Wyandot Hospital. There were at least 3 national guard troops there helping with logistics. I told them I feel safe already now that they were here. It was a very smooth and efficient operation. I am scheduled there for the 2nd shot on Feb 17. The shot location is still a bit sore, but not bad. A buddy told me his wife was told to do arm exercise to help reduce pain and she had very little pain. He did no exercises and had 3 days of severe pain. So I did arm exercises and am good. I understand reactions to the 2nd shot may be worse.

RE: It's a wonderful day: COVID vaccinations

There are currently, In Michigan, only a few counties which are not scheduling for 70 year olds.. Hold on and I'll check Genesee county (here I live) Huron County Tuscola county District Health Dept #2 (I have no idea) And the link MichiganCoronavirus Distribution I did sign up with my primary health care provider to be on the list. Here's what the Wayne county link states: Wayne County is currently in Phase 1A of the distribution schedule and no public sites are released at this time. Please visit again once it is announced vaccine is available to the general public.

RE: It's a wonderful day: COVID vaccinations

I'm in Wayne County Michigan and am 70 with cancer and a damaged immune system. They have no list here to be put on. I'm signed up with my local (Barry-Eaton county) Health Department; and with Meijer's pharmacy. In both cases, my "group" isn't up for vaccination yet; but I've been told that I will be contacted when I am able to schedule an appointment. You might try both of those - here's the link to Meijer's Meijer vaccination I have been trying to get in via Henry Ford My Chart. I could have gone to Jackson county 9 days ago, but that was 90 miles. I kept checking from 6 AM - 8 PM, no appointments available. I got lucky a few days ago I checked at 8 PM and a bunch posted up for Wyandot Hospital, only 25 miles away. I got one of those. All the appts were gone within 10 minutes. So it is a game of needing to keep checking frequently and hope you time it right with the new appt postings, before they are gone. My appt is for this Wed. The Wayne County Health Dept was not taking appointments (I heard).

RE: I just got the new RV Magazine

I called their 800 number and am getting a $15 refund for canceling my sub. All should do that & they will get the message.

RE: Let me ask this question this way

I think I'm OK with the alternator wire going to a battery isolator and through 40 amp breakers to the batteries.

RE: It's a wonderful day: COVID vaccinations

I just got an appointment for next Wed about 35 miles away. I checked and there were many times for this 1 location and none of the others. They were all gone within 10 minutes. Distribution is not the problem, an adequate supply from Pfizer and Maderna is. Many states running out.

RE: Replacement magazine

I called their 800 number and canceled my sub and am getting a $15 refund. I own a Class B MH and do not want to read about trailers, 5th wheels or truck campers. That 1st issue seemed more like a food or travel mag. Sad.
