RE: Satellite Newbie looking for advice

Thanks Bill, what carry out antenna would you recommend? Not really looking for a roof mounted dome I mentioned it above, but I will say it again, I recommend the Pathway X2 dome (it cannot be roof mounted) for DISH customers. Pair that with a Wally receiver and you are good to go. Check for combo deals available if you buy both. Got it. I misunderstood and thought you were referring to a roof mounted dome. Thanks Bill

RE: Satellite Newbie looking for advice

Pathway X2. Only one that lets you choose East or West sats. Thanks BK

RE: Satellite Newbie looking for advice

Thanks for the info. On the Winegard site I see various carry outs from the Playmaker, Tailgater, Carryout, to Pathway. Not sure what I should get

RE: Satellite Newbie looking for advice

Do the carry out dishes work on both Direct and Dish?

RE: Satellite Newbie looking for advice

In the past Directv had its fans here. Not so much any more it seems. Got it, thanks.

RE: Satellite Newbie looking for advice

No votes for Direct?

Satellite Newbie looking for advice

Hey folks, I'm looking for a simple HD satellite setup with some sort of carry out dish (nothing mounted to the roof) with a single receiver for a single TV in the main area of the trailer. Don't need recording, hopper, joey, etc. Don't know anything about Dish or Direct so I don't know what company to go with but looking for a service I can pay as I go and just pay for the months we use it. We're based in So. California What dish? What Company? Any other info needed?

RE: 120 days and counting

Adequate batteries, adequate solar generator needed. Who's asking? Most of my camping is fair weather. Running my generator for 1 hr before bed when it's 30F doesn't equate to more batteries and more solar panels. Keep doing exactly what you're doing. Sounds like a good plan

RE: 1/2T/huge TT vs strong cross wind = BAADDD DAY

The wind is a powerful thing. 1500, 2500, 3500 probably would not have made any difference. The major forces would have been exerted against the trailer which would have acted as leverage against the tow vehicle

RE: carpet dyeing

Nice work and a great idea. One advantage I can think of is you can always touch it up as needed in a year or few years as needed

RE: Quality of Forest River

As to the quality of Forest River, we've been very satisfied with our 2013 in my sig. My son just bought a new 2020 Forest River trailer and it seems to be very well put together and the attention to detail is very good. They even come with Goodyear Endurance Tires, WiFi booster, and TST TPMS system. Time will tell. They all turn out a lemon from time to time. My daughter's 2 year old 40 ft. Keystone Cougar 5er us sitting in the repair shop with a broken leaf spring hanger. Go figure.

RE: Peak Blue Platinum DEF

Frankly as a retired chemist I'd be more likely to believe this if they explained what miracle additive they are using. Otherwise it sounds like marketing BS. DEF is plain and simple 35% Urea and I don't know what 'deposits they were referring to. Searching google for 'def deposits' gets zero hits. True, and from what I've read, there is no good/better/best or "premium" DEF. It's kind of like buying isopropyl alcohol at the drugstore; all brands are the same, it either meets a standard or it doesn't. That's why I buy the Walmart house brand for $7.88 for 2.5 gallons. Peak at Walmart is $11.88. Pump DEF is even cheaper but that's very inconvenient for me.

RE: Decided on a truck after MANY months.

Should be a winner for your setup.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

I heard Carlisle are now made in the USA....I guess TN. Heard it from a tire guy and saw it online too. Nope. I just bought 2 Carlisle ST tires last week and they are made in china. I had to buy 2 of them on our way out of town pulling our TT on vacation and noticed bulges on the tread surface of 2 tires. They didn't have any GY Endurance in stock at the time.:( I bought a Goodyear Endurance last summer and I will bet $$ on which brand will last longer. I've had Carlisle ST tires go bad just sitting there and even with no weight on them as a spare, tread bulge or tread separation on the road. I will replace as needed with GY made in USA from now on. Yes, the Carlisle is made in China. And yes, years ago they did have a bad rep. All this changed with the new Radial Trail model which even has a higher speed rating. Yes, the new Goodyear Endurance seems to be a very good tire. IMO they're both fine. BTW, the old Goodyear Marathons were some of the worst tires I ever owned, almost as bad as the China bombs that came on my last two trailers.

RE: Goodyear Endurance Tires VS Carlisle Trail HD Tires

Carlisle is made in China, thus the cheap price. Lots of top quality things are made in China. Bottom line, Both the Goodyear and Carlisle are very good tires so buy either one with confidence. Both have a big following and both are holding up well. I went with the Carlisle simply based on price. So far, so good.

RE: Your "favorite" BBQ Grill, suggestions

So, those of you who have proposed the Weber Q2200 - I have done a wee bit of research....and now I have a question. One of the Q&A's said this about that grill, and I just wish to know if it is true...or what YOU may have done about this: "...the Q 2200 is not compatible with an RV propane system. They are only meant for use with disposable LP canisters or a standard 20 lb QCC1 style LP tank via Weber adapter hose 6501" So, Weber fans, what say ye?? You just have to remove the pressure regulator on the grill. Super easy to do. Just google it, there are articles/videos on how to do it. It’s really nice just plug it into the camper line and you don’t have to worry about those little cans. Weber recommends against what we all do for liability reasons. You could remove the regulator and theoretically plug the Weber directly into a propane tank putting out high pressure gas. That could be dangerous. Weber recommends against any modification basically
