RE: Duramax tuner

My old 2006 LBZ is bone stock and going to stay that way. It just rolled over 210,000 and tows my 5'er plenty good enough for me. And it has been paid for for a LONG TIME!

RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

Love having DirecTV and DNS. I have not had to call/write or chat with anyone from DTV in YEARS! No changes needed. With the Trav'ler and a Genie/client setup I rarely watch live TV so when it comes on or where it's broadcast from has no meaning to me. I watch local news and national news using OTA from 5 until 6 or so and then it's back to whatever we have recorded. We also have a Firestick (2 actually) and can stream something available from a number of platforms as I luckily have a truly unlimited data plan no longer available. Even so, 90% of our TV watching is via satellite. I'm right there with you Bill. Actually my system is just like yours, but I have a Slimline dish on a tripod.

RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

Re: I noticed last night, it could have been there before, that ABC East (396) and West (397) are back along with CW Plus (394). I never watch CW so I don't know if there was east/west versions before or if CW Plus was it. Me too. CW name has changed to CW Plus and mine isn't working, but I never watch CW anyway by either name. All of the traditional networks are back as well. I have the East only.

RE: Pulling more than 50 amps ?

100 amps available....50 amps per leg x 2 answer is yes Agreed! I routinely use in the 60+ amp range when camping during the winter and using the electric fireplace and 3 other portable electric heaters for warmth plus the electric water heater. The 3 other heaters are strategically plugged in such that neither 50 amp leg is maxed out. I've been doing this for several winters now.

RE: What is your long term Dicor plan?

My Dicor plan which I formulated 5 years ago was to never ever purchase or use any Dicor. I installed This on my roof after my rubber roof membrane started failing at 5 years of age. All Dicor was covered up as well.

RE: electricial 30 to 50 amp connection

The adapter works fine as it only uses one of the 50 amp breakers. You are still limited to 30 amp by your rig however. And 30 amp really means 24 amps since all breakers are limited to 80% of their rating for continuous power. Most of the time you are better off using the 50 amp breaker if you have the adapter since the 50 amp sockets on the power pedestals are usually in better condition than the 30 amp sockets. They are used less. I'm speaking as a camp host. Have a great day.

RE: I-40 Anything worth seeing

When traveling on I-40 around West Memphis, AR I recommend a night at You will have a site on a sand bar on the edge of the Mississippi River and they have lots of tow boat/barge traffic. Just check with them in wet weather since the sites will be under water. Pretty unique campground. Just south of I-40 exit #280 in Arkansas.

RE: TST, TPMS with internal sensors

Go with the 507 system and get metal stems and be done with it. That's what I did about 10 years ago. x2

RE: TST, TPMS with internal sensors

I have had my TST 507 system for 10 years. I have had to replace 2 wheel sensors, out of 8, in that time that failed and I did spring for the newer color monitor a couple of years ago. Other than that the system has been rock solid and sensor batteries and o-rings are not hard to replace when needed.

RE: Coating epdm roof on our fifth wheel.

I coated my 5 1/2 year old rubber roof with This. It also covered all of the caulking so zero maintenance. It was done after the original membrane started to leak through the membrane. The best thing I have ever done to my RV. I will never own another rubber roof longer than it takes to have it coated by RV Flex Armor. Yes, I will do it to a brand new RV before I ever move into it.

RE: Is a stabilizer jack for fifth wheel hitch worth the money?

Or do nothing. The cost is zero and after a while you get used to the motion. I have a washer/dryer combo in my front bedroom and the motion would really bother me early on, now I can sleep right through all of the cycles and don't even wake up. I frequently turn the w/d on and immediately go to bed, then I have fresh clean/dry clothes when I get up in the morning.

RE: COE parks, May be old news

We are open and the boat ramp is free. No date mentioned as to when the daily launch fees will resume. All reservations do have to be made at prior to check in. There is no walk up reservations/check in available.

RE: Warning: Flojet portable waste pump

I have the portable Flojet, but have never used it. I have it just in case, but it has never been out of the case in 10 years.

RE: Any good/cheap electric razor for camping?

I haven't shaved with a blade in 50 years at least. My recommendation would be anything Braun. Pick your model. They are all good and just the features are different. I have a $35.00 blue one that I keep in my briefcase just in case and a full featured model for every day use that is ten years old and keeps on going.

RE: DirecTV HD satellite reception

I have been aiming a slimline dish for 10 years now. I have never ever had a meter. I use the signal strength screen built in to my DTV receiver and a wireless baby monitor. Aim the camera at the TV screen and take the remote outside. Works like a champ and my daughter gave me the monitor when my grandchild was old enough that she quit using it. Even if I had to buy the monitor it is cheaper than any good meter. I also use a heavy duty tripod from Works like a champ for 10 years now fulltime.

RE: Any Alabama full-timers?

I am full time and a legal resident of Alabama. The property tax on my fifth wheel drops every year, but the tax isn't enough to make me go to the trouble of setting up residence in any of the states mentioned above. I just pay it and move on.

RE: Changing oil & can only fit in half a quart :S - QG 4000

FWIW, when I filled the oil on my 5500 Onan, I had to do it slowly to allow the air to "burp" out. Or put the dip stick back in and bump the starter. Then add the remaining oil. I do this and it makes getting that last 1/2 quart in a lot faster.

RE: Directv access card

I received a new access card from DirecTV 25 years ago due to the hacking mentioned above, but not with continuous service since then. I would be very suspicious.

RE: Duramax won't prime.

The fuel filter o ring is very easy to not have seated properly when installing. Are you sure your o ring is properly in it's channel? If not it will cause an air leak. The Duramax system is a vacuum system and not pressurized, so you could just have an air leak.
