RE: run problem with Onan Marquis 5000 BGM

I had the exact same problem and fixed it with a new carburetor. But with the Onan, it can be a number of things. They are famous for the oil and overheat sensors going bad. The thunk sound when trying to start might be a low battery. Chuck

RE: Travel to Guadalajara

We traveled throughout the Atlantic Coast area from the US to Belize and never had any issues and never felt unsafe. We did avoid major cities. But we avoid major cities in the US. Chuck

RE: Travel to Guadalajara

Is it actually 'safe' to travel in Mexico with all the cartels in control and the corruption of government officials? Seems to me from what I have heard, traveling in Mexico is like playing Russian roulette. You may be fine for a while then life as you know it could drastically change. We were thinking about going there, but decided not to go after some research. Lakeside Your biggest safety concerns will come from those that have never been there and spend too much time reading the news. Chuck

RE: Must cross Yosemite NP to Convict Lake?

We did not have to pay a fee to transit Yellowstone. Can't say about Yosemite. I would call directly and ask. Chuck

RE: Sanitizing fresh water tank

Can anyone provide any verifiable sources for anyone that has gotten seriously ill that is definitely contributed to the water system in their RV? Chuck Reading a study that a substantial number of RV water systems are contaminated with Legionella does not appear to be enough of a warning for you. Do you have an opening where you can feel the sides of your water tank? I can almost guarantee it will feel slimy if you have not sanitized the tank within a few months. You might even be able to see some pink or other discoloration due to bacteria. You can also have the water cultured. I dealt with ultrapure lab water and it was still hard to keep the water from becoming contaminated at each spigot. I don't know how much warning you need. I am not about to do a literature search to satisfy your skepticism. Instead I will just keep treating my system before each season and if the water is stagnant or unchlorinated. You say you're reading a study. Share it with us. What's the harm? My experience is real world and not something I have read. Chuck

RE: Restrictions on older RVs.

We did an 18,000 mile trip around the U.S. and stayed at every type of RV park. We never found any that questioned the age of our RV. It's a 1999. Chuck

RE: Dish from DirecTV Conversion Coax Question

Sorry, I guess I am installing the Dish Pro Plus since that is what Winegard sent me and I have an older dish. Chuck

RE: Dish from DirecTV Conversion Coax Question

TechWriter, Still not showing me the coax I ask about. They are coax FROM the LNB and not the coax into the RV. Chuck

RE: Dish from DirecTV Conversion Coax Question

Bill, There are 3 coax from the LNB. As I said they are color coded black, green, and red. The ports are A, B, and C. My question again is what color needs to go to A? What color needs to go to B? What color needs to go to C? Richard, that post and diagrams do not answer my question. I really need some feedback from anyone that has done this as to how you made the connections. The connections from the base to the DPH42 switch is not an issue. I have that covered. Chuck

RE: Dish from DirecTV Conversion Coax Question

There is no owners manual and the installation instruction for the "conversion" do not really cover my question. I would appreciate a response from anyone that has done the DirecTV to Dish conversion on the Winegard Travlr. Chuck

Dish from DirecTV Conversion Coax Question

In the process of converting the Travlr, I see the LNB has 3 cables instead of one like the DirecTV. They are green, red and black. They connect to A,B, and C in the bottom of the turret. I thought I read somewhere that they need to be connected correctly to make everything work right. Can someone help with the connection sequence? Thanks. Chuck

RE: new satellite hook up?

how do I get this Wally to know my Dish account?and on this 2018 Bounder how do I turn on the satt.I cant find a switch to turn it on ? I think you need to find someone that knows these systems, have then install everything and show you how it all works. Chuck

RE: new satellite hook up?

We have a Winegard Travlr on the roof and a dedicated coax for a tripod on the side of the RV. Both run to an AB switch so we can change over if the roof unit is blocked. I had to run coax from the outside connection to the Component cabinet but no big deal. Works great. Chuck

RE: Dish Network has tough road to become mobile carrier

. . . he is really ticked off at DirecTV or DISH (one of them ran over is dog or something) . . . Good one Thanks! It's just hard to explain his nonsense posts (for RV'ers). I get it that he has a grudge and he is at a S&B location, I just don't know why he posts his BS here. If everyone stops replying to his nonsense he will go away. This kind of person feeds on your responses. Chuck

RE: AT&T/Direct TV is Now Losing Over 8500 Customers Per Day

I can't for the life of me understand why anyone continues to engage this guy. If we totally ignore him, in a short period of time he will go elsewhere. Chuck

RE: Dish Sat Signal Strength

Thanks. I'm on the Eastern Arc. Max showing 50%. Chuck

Dish Sat Signal Strength

Just had Dish installed including a Hopper 3. The Sat signal strength show about 50%. With DirecTV the signal strength was 99 to 100%. Clear sky view. So for Dish subscribers, is this about normal or do I have an issue with the dish adjustment? Thanks. Chuck

RE: How long to return to camping after open heart surgery

I think that your cardiologist is the best source for an answer to that question and not folks on an RV forum. Everyone recovers differently, has different procedures and potential complications. So you won't get your answer here. You will from your doctors, so ask them. I have had 3 heart procedures in the last 4 years, none of them bypass. My recovery was quick. But that was me. Chuck
