Scott, I thought there was an OTA adaptor for the Dish receivers that fed the signal in, and thus could be recorded on your DVR???    Mark Bruss would know....he knows the most about Dish of anyone I've ever met.  Mark??  OTA??

I've deleted my post in this thread and will no longer respond. It has turned purely political, with facts not counting. I would suggest that we get back on things related to the RV lifestyle.  I'll not be participating, however.

Smitty, I'll be interested if you actually get a phone shipped, or if you get put on the "out of stock - waiting" cue like the rest of us. 


I may look in the local ATT  store today for this device or a Mobley. Because I don't have a good feeling about every getting it, at this point.

Randi would go with 1/16" 6061 at this point instead for the siding.

Thanks for the feedback on the siding project. That is a bummer, for sure. I think you can buy fiberglass already laminated to 1/8 backer in small quantities. I know you can buy it in bigger quantities since it is used to build RV laminations. You might look into that. 


That actuator is trick. I may come back at you offline on a project involving that.

US Cargo Control is s good source.  LINK  I buy the bolt on lashing winches.  But you can weld if you like.


The nets are custom made, as David said.  But your current nets should work fine.


Two bolts per chock are fine. But four is better, and overkill, for sure. I had two on my previous truck. Four on the new one. In your case I'd do two. Just make sure you have plenty of "meat" under them for the threads.
