RE: Dish Hopper 3

Absolutely. If your account is an RV type their app will let you change it on a smart phone. You can also reauthorize a sat box. DISH is way easier to deal with than DTV when it comes to RVS. What I don’t know about is which LNB you need on a Travler to work with a a Hopper. But m pretty sure it can be done. Hopefully Bill will check in.

RE: Disconnect load before stopping generator?

After you have to replace a rotor at $1000 just for the part made a believer out of me. I shut off the ACs before unplugging too.

RE: DISH Network: Which Dish?

The only one I know of that gets both arcs is a Winegard Pathway X2. The Wally or any 211 gives you a menu and you select which arc you want and away she goes. It supports two TVs but the second tv can only watch channels on the sat the primary tv is tuned to. The dish only gets one sat at a time. I would buy it again in a heartbeat. BTW DISH is way easier to deal with and are happy to change locals daily if wanted.

There is no LEO.

RE: Angry wannabe RV police encounter

I got the RV police comment; eg weight police. A holes are out there. I was on a two lane county road with construction and the traffic was bumper to bumper as far as you could see rolling along 20-30 mph with lots of brake tapping. I like to leave a 5-10 car length gap so I’m not constantly not using the service brakes. This moe ron passes me double yellow line honking and shaking his fist flipping the bird passing me like I caused the backup.

RE: Norcold settlement

What settlement? There was a class action suit for all the premature failures and those pesky fires. My 1200 got me $1200 back which bought me an Amish made unit.

RE: Signal strength for phone meter

Diags mode on the phone gives you dB reading. I don’t mess with that. Google speed test and run that before and after. I have a Weboost RV amp. When you’re in the one bar service area the speed test will typically report under 1 MBs. Plug in the power and retest and now measure 5-10 Mbs.

RE: DISH loss of signal

How do you get the signal to the satelite? There is no cable going from the ground to the bird, nobody goes up there to slide another disc in. There are ground stations to feed the data to the bird, that is the uplink. It is subject to the same problems as the receiving end. Tom Sats have an uplink that feeds them but it has nothing to do with the dish we use to watch content on a tv.

RE: Water hose storage??

I used a product called Cord Pro, often sold at RV shows. Now on Amazon. They stack or hang on a hook. I switched to the orange plastic ext cord reels at Lowe’s. Thy come various sizes and I think they work better for 25’ hoses. Great for co ax too for the carryout dish. BTW Walmart carries a blue hose that is a pretty good hose. Stainless steel fittings no kink. A little stiff but a good hose.

RE: Duracell 6 volt batteries

Batteries Plus was cheaper than Sams for me.

What’s this upfeed talk? There’s no upfeed.

RE: Ford 460 engine questions/issues

Ford reman long block engines are excellent. Act like a brand new engine. That’s what I was thinking. The learning curve on engine rebuilds is painful.

RE: Norcold settlement

I replaced my cooling unit with an Amish built. They have a compressor version now. Do you have a website for this Amish unit? Thanks No. It’s been 4-5 years. I think I found the on eBay. I’m sure if you Google Amish compressor cooling unit you’ll find it.

RE: Overheating/tripping electrical panel 110v AC breakers

Need more data. Voltage and amp measurements at the pedestal, RV panel and at or near the ac.

RE: DISH loss of signal

Have you run diags? Sounds like a weak signal on one sat. On your remote, press menu, 6, 1, 3 and report back.

RE: Who has a good RV oven

Add a pizza stone or two. Get an oven thermometer that hangs from a ack. Buy a Breville convection oven. They are the best.

Alcohol and explosives, what could possibly go wrong?

RE: admin

It’s a legal medical treatment. Certainly safer and less addicting than many prescribed pain relievers and NSAIDS for arthritis, etc. It doesn’t make anybody immoral. Locking tens of thousands of people in jail is immoral.
