RE: Posting

This OP has already posted in Truck Campers, so I'm not sure what he's talking about.

RE: Anybody in Quartzsite?

You can call it the Hoax flu for all I care. It's still killed over 400,000 people.

RE: Installing Solar

You don't plan on tilting these panels?

RE: FLEXIBLE FRESH WATER HOSE

Also says its not for hot water applications. Which for an RV hooked up to water in the summer might not be a great idea. Water in the hose can get really hot.Also, a thinner hose may not be a great idea to have under constant pressure.

RE: FLEXIBLE FRESH WATER HOSE

Should zero G hoses be used for potable water? The RV version appears to be safe.

RE: FLEXIBLE FRESH WATER HOSE

Can't get any better than this one. Can't kink, ultra light, more flexible than you can imagine....stores in a compact wad if you dont wind it up in a loop....and I swear it is self draining. Don't be cheap and turn away from this one. ... just look at its ratings.... Apex Zero G hoseI don't know if the RV version is better than the regular one, but the Zero Gs kink like crazy and even water pressure won't straighten them.

RE: Full time with DirectTV

Does everyone have TV (Dish, DirecTv) separately from their internet service? If yes, why? Not sure I understand... DTV doesn't offer internet service.

RE: Full time with DirectTV

We just purchased the same antenna we had at home from an online source, used a homemade stand or tripod we purchased, taking less than 10 minutes to have all the same channels we have at home, out of the spotbeam we lost local channels.I can usually set up my tripod dish in a few minutes, but there are times it can take much longer. The problem is the dish pointing data I get from the receiver. For instance, using my current zip code, Azimuth= 139, elev = 46. If I use lat/long, I get Az=158 elev= 48. Further, if I go online to the DTV pointer and use zip code, I get 142.7 and 47.3. As you can see, that's a significant difference, and adds a lot of time to aiming the dish. It's not so much the azimuth that's the problem, it's the elevation that is more sensitive. In the area I'm in now, the zip code on the receiver turned out to be correct. The beeps are also handy, but they don't always work. I use a swift hitch camera aimed at the tv screen.

RE: Full time with DirectTV

Directv/AT&T has the worst customer service in the world!!v.It's pretty bad when you have to keep calling back because you can't get good service the first time. They're sales people.. they're always trying to sell you a service call for the simplest problem - but they don't service RVs. I got fed up with trying to change locals so I gave them a Los Angeles service address which works all over the place. As it turns out, I rarely ever watch local TV except for Jeopardy and SNL.

RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

One of the winter injuries we would see is a fan belt/fan laceration when car was started with cat sitting on engine.I drove 20 miles, pulled into a McD's, got out and saw her cute little head poking out from between the cab and bed. OMG! At least she had the smarts to stay put through all that. That was the day I learned never go anywhere without knowing where she was.

RE: Full time with DirectTV

Can't you buy the equipment yourself, then just call them to activate the card at a particular address? Afaik they do not do RV 'installations'.

RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

Just be sure the cat is in someone's arms or in a closed crate before extending or retracting slides.Be sure the cat isn't up in your truck's frame before driving. Yeah, that happened.

RE: Traveling in 23 ft trailer with cat

I rescued my kitty at 6 years old, she's now 10. She rides in the 5er and just goes to sleep until we get there. She's changed my camping habits in that she needs bushes and trees, so no more casino parking lots or truck stops or Walmarts.

RE: Converting to 12v fridge Canada question

Current fridge is 2 way, so I'm thinking the 12v wiring is pretty light.The owner's manual should recommend wiring size.

RE: Converting to 12v fridge Canada question

Are you talking about a 12v compressor fridge? I guess if you ask if it's loud, the answer is yes.

RE: Looking for inverter installation in SF Bay Area

That sounds fine to me, but I don't have direct experience with that sort of thing.

RE: Looking for inverter installation in SF Bay Area

Do you have a transfer switch?Yes I do, it's just a manual 3pdt knife switch. Long story, but the switches in inverters are not fast enough to keep my Dtv receiver on, so it's permanently on inverter.
