RE: Yellowstone

ok, so you know it is prohibited but if someone on the internet, who you don't even know, tells you that they have done it, then you would be willing to try it yourself? Not much reward for so much risk in my opinion.

RE: Propane smell after traveling

Are you inside or outside when you smell the propane? How long are you on the road? If under two hours you might try turning off the propane bottles for a trip or two and see if you still get the smell. You might actually be getting odor from one of the waste tanks. Just what I was thinking.

RE: which receivers

original poster here. Thanks for all the replies. I've learned a lot. Your feedback gave me a good start on researching my options. Not sure when I'm going to take the plunge to Dish.

which receivers

I am going to switch my Winegard Traveler from Directv to Dish. I have ordered the parts I need from Winegard after speaking with Winegard so should be all set there. Instructions look pretty basic so plan to do that myself. Now it is time to talk about receivers/DVRs. At a minimum, I want to be able to record one program while still watch a different program on the living room tv. I also want to be able to watch a different program on the bedroom tv and be able to fast forward through commercials so I guess that will also require some type of dvr as well. Third thing I would like is to be able to watch programs that have already been recorded even when I cannot receive a satellite signal. For example, on the road to Alaska outside signal range. So do I want Hoppers, wallys, Joeys, wireless joeys, Hopper duo, Hopper 3? any assistance in picking out receivers will be greatly appreciated.

RE: Ocala, Florida

we stayed at wilderness rv resort in Silver Spring, fl which is just east of Ocala and on the west edge of the Ocala National Forest. It has been a few years ago but it was very nice.

RE: Roadside Assistance Companies

just do your research. Some of the regular auto insurance plans that people talk about on here do providing TOWING service and much more. Some insurance plans only provide TOWING service which is not the same as a Roadside Assistance program. Some will do tire changes on your truck but not your trailer. Be sure you know what is covered. think about different scenarios such as truck is broken down, will they tow truck and trailer or will trailer be left by side of the road? Two flat tires on trailer, will they bring and change the tires or only change the tires if you have the tires if you have two spares with you? These are the type of questions to ask now while buying a plan, not when you are sitting on the side of the highway.

RE: Newbie question

may be a quick question but not necessarily a quick answer. It depends upon 1) what else may be on the circuit in your friends house, 2) if it is a 15 amp or 20 amp breaker 3) how long of an extension cord you may have to use. 4) how good you are about managing the electrical loads. 5) whether your battery charger kicks on at the same time as your fridge or your AC, etc. we plugged into a friends house and everything seemed fine for a while and then his breaker would trip every time his freezer in his basement kicked on. turned out it was on the same circuit.

RE: Parking RV at home

We just got our RV and there is a lot to take in. Parked it at home for the first night. All we are doing is plugging the electricity in. Is there anything else to be done to park the RV at home? Hard to know what to tell you when you just say RV which could be anything from a pop-up to a 40+ foot Class A motorhome. I normally consider an RV a vehicle but some people call their travel trailers an RV.

Orlando FL to North Myrtle Beach SC

Been stuck in Florida for a while now. Heading to Myrtle Beach in July. Any suggestions on routing? It will be hot so we won't be doing any hiking concentrating on more of a golf trip. We are all set at our destination. Going to take 3 -4 days to get there. Any suggestions on leisurely routing and maybe a golf course along the way would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.

RE: Help with A/C freezing up ..

Fan not on high or auto? Freeze sensor dislodged from correct place? Bro in law was not sure, sis in law THINKS it was on high, but not sure.. I will say this, I kept experiencing "LOW VOLTAGE" as my Progressive Industries shut me down 3 - 4 times due to low voltage... Could that have been the issue? Does brother in law not have a Progressive unit to detect low voltage? Hope he didn't damage the air conditioner.

RE: Toilet Won't Flush

when our foot pedal stopped opening we were able to pry it open using a screwdriver to at least get the contents to empty. Just a work around. If you have something with a suction cup that you can get stuck onto the flapper and pull it back enough to get a screw driver stuck in there you will be in a better position to troubleshoot it.

RE: Confused and Frustrated

when you say live in full time, do you mean regularly traveling from place to place or just being in one place for months at a time?

RE: Tadi Bros wireless backup camera has intermittent problem

My information is old so you might have a different experience. We got a wireless Tadi color system in Jan 2015. Had problem similar to yours so we fought it for a while and then hard wired it in Jan 2016. It was better but then in Jul 2017, either the monitor or the camera went bad. Tadi couldn't tell us which and we were tired of trying to get it to work properly. We bought another system Rear View Safety and have been very happy with it.

RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

Going to look at converting the Winegard Traveler over to Dish.Are you expecting to get DNS via Dish? No but it sounds like it will be much easier to switch my locals when I move if I have Dish versus Directv

RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

I called AT&T today to cancel my Directv due to the problem with Distance Network being discontinued June 1 and the lady told me that they still had hopes that they may get the bill passed through Congress. I cancelled anyway. I have jumped through Directv hoops for over 20 years now and I am just done. Going to look at converting the Winegard Traveler over to Dish.

RE: Newbie's 5th wheel

do you know what a park model is because for what you are describing I think they would be much more suitable.

RE: Turn on my hot water!

be sure there is water in it before turning it on. If the tank is empty from being winterized, you will ruin the electric element
