RE: DirecTV dropping DNS

I have DNS and NY channels. They are all working right now except abc which went out earlier this morning.

RE: Used diesel, anyway to tell if it's been chipped?

I believe that most of the time the vehicle ( especially the newer models) can be put on a diagnostic machine, and determine “if” it is or has been “chipped”! “Chipped” or not, a thorough test, via a diagnostic test may be a good “ feel good” thing to do! memtb Unless the ecm has been replaced with the one that chipped. The the original put back on for sale.

RE: Continuous generator usage. How long?

Just keep clean oil and fuel in it and let it run. Generator is just a machine... it does not get tired, need breaks, or a nap. I agree. It was designed to run and if properly maintained and serviced is will run until it wears out.

RE: Don't believe everything you read

There was a radio talk show icon in the Atlanta market that retired a few years back that would say pretty regular (I'm paraphrasing now since I don't have the exact quote): Don't believe anything I tell you unless you have verified it yourself from independent sources because I will lie to you.

RE: Directv getting channel loss 771 but not really

I have been using the same Slimline dish/LNB on a heavy duty tripod for 9+ years full time. The dish has been through a lot and set up I have no clue how many times. My tripod is weighted with a 5 gallon bucket of water so 40 pounds plus the weight of the bucket. Last week we had a sudden thunderstorm that hit with estimated 50-60 mph straight line winds and blew the tripod over and of course it landed right on the LNB. I put it back up and started aiming. All sats were mid to high 90's except 99ca. I could not get it above 82-84 until I realized the LNB arm was not only bent but it would move up and down about 1/4" and all of it's mounting bolts were tight. It seems the arm mount location on the dish was bent a bit also. Soooo, I grabbed my backup dish that I have been hoarding for a number of years and put it in service with my original LNB. Now all is well again with all sats above 95. Why did the wind have to hit my dish from the back so it would fall on the arm? That black cloud, literally, was following me around again. Did I try to call DirecTV for assistance? Didn't waste my time.

RE: Full-time and don't/didn't like it?

There's a reason not everyone has a tattoo. X2

RE: Full-time and don't/didn't like it?

I think those who sell their house, an increasing asset, spend it all on a RV with none set back for the future, can find them in trouble when they have to sell their RV, a decreasing asset, to buy a home.You'd have to be near brain-dead to do anything that rash. Sign me up as brain dead. I have been full time for 10 years this coming August and wouldn't have it any other way. I volunteer with 2 other full timers one of which has been at it a little longer than me and one is brand new this year.

RE: Army Corps Of Engineers Parks Are Closing?

I am a current camp host at the COE Campground in my signature. We are closed indefinitely per our sign posted at the entry gate. Fortunately the hosts here are allowed to stay here during the shutdown and will be here for immediate opening when this pandemic is over.

RE: Closed campgrounds

I am currently a host at a COE Campground and we are completely closed indefinitely. The hosts here are allowed to stay during this period, but we are definitely quarantined. It is QUIET here with zero campers and the gate locked.

RE: Don't forget this weekend

I think we should adopt DST full time. Spring forward and stay that way.

RE: Oxygenics Fury RV Handheld Shower

I shower in dihydrogen oxide and also use 78% (approx) nitrogen.

RE: Load Range G Tires

For a double axle, the price is $600 vs $1100, for a triple axle $1600 vs $940. Considering the quality seems to be about the same, with maybe a couple more isues with the Goodyear, it pretty much boils down to price. Personally I'd rather spend the money to travel. I had rather spend money on tires I believe in and trust. G614's here and the next set will be the same. YMMV

RE: Electric Fire Places

I use my Dimplex every day during the winter. It works great and puts out enough heat that I virtually never use my propane furnace except those nights when it will be well below freezing and I need a bit of heat in my underbelly for the pipes, etc. Of course I am a camp host and have free electricity so heating for me is cheap. Oh no, I have to go to work today! Oh well.

RE: Getting harder to aim Slimline SWM

I just wander what receivers you use with the slim line dish Genie? I used an HR24 until about 3 years ago and then the Genie HR44. Aiming one vs the other was no different.

RE: Getting harder to aim Slimline SWM

I'm not having any issues with aiming my Slimline dish. I use the signal strength screen from my receiver and a wireless baby monitor. I haven't noticed any difference in doing this and this is my 10th year. Maybe I'm just lucky?

RE: Getting harder to aim Slimline SWM

I think you are confusing magnetic north with true north. In California there is a 13 degree east difference between magnetic and true north.

RE: good Sam VS AARP.

AARP was a HUGE supporter of Obamacare, apparently thinking they would get more $$ somehow. Since the bulk of the people eligible for AARP are also already on MediCare, IMHO it was an EVIL bargain with the devil with no guarantee of benefit. WAS an AARP member, no longer recommend them for diddly! The same day AARP announced their support for Obamacare I called them and said "cancel my membership right now". They reminded me I had 2 more years on my membership. I responded with a repeat of my first comment. No longer a member and never will be.

RE: RV King Topper

I full time and a topper to me is like putting lipstick on a pig. I just bought a better mattress. My original mattress that came with my Designer was little more than a thick piece of foam and cheap foam at that. I burned it.

RE: Batwing Water Leak

Throwing a Batwing in the trash? Really? What "different antenna" did/are you now using thats better than the batwing? Thanks Batwing needs to be lubricates at least once/year I don't use any OTA antenna, I'm totally satellite. I put up an omnidirectional antenna that is fixed and doesn't leak mostly to plug up the hole. I don't remember if the coax is attached to it or not, but I think it is.

RE: Batwing Water Leak

Mine leaked on my bed twice. After the first leak lubed it, after the second leak I removed it with a different antenna and threw the batwing in the trash. No problems since. Since the Batwing with Wingman attachment is the best built-in RV OTA TV antenna, I would not recommend that as a solution to the OP's problem. I never used it anyway and tired of the leaks. I can't get on the roof due to vertigo, so that sucker had to go.
