    Walmart vs. Amazon

    2X. Add eBay to that list. It had the best price I found for a Pathway X2 and Wally with free shipping and no tax as a bonus. Later, J
  2. Just finished a chat with Dish. I asked if I could get their On Dish Magazine mailed out to an address other then the billing or service address (only two options provided on line). The answer was no. So is there another source for this magazine or a Dish TV Guide in written format. Easy to find on line but just as difficult to use as scrolling through the on screen guide.

    Navigation App.

    Using Garmin Link on your Bluetooth cell phone you can search for locations and then send them to your Garmin GPS. Sort of the best of both worlds. The interface and voice directions our Dezl 760 is much easier to follow then either of our cell phones. Did not know that Copilot would work away from cell towers. Interesting. Will investigate further. Thanks for the info. Later, J

    Protecting external cable connections

    The USCG MK's on our diesel crew used permetex for the many remote start units they maintained. Some of these sites they were transported to by helicopter. Later, J

    Honda 2000i or Predator Generators?

    Honda parts and service are available at many locations. Honda generators are quiet and reliable with likely the best history of anything similar on the market. Later, J

    Personal Property Insurance

    When the driver's side window on our pickup was smashed and the brand new Garmin GPS taken its full replacement cost was covered by the personal property provision of our Progressive full time policy, and not the pickup's. The pickup's policy covered it's damage. Later, J

    Black Tank Chemicals - Liquid or Dry?

    Have no idea if it did any good or not but I read somewhere that adding some ice to your black tank would help rub off stuff that was starting to cling to the inside of the tank. Made sense to me. Hence twice I have dumped a bag of ice down the stool just before heading out. The second part of this theory is by the time you get where you are going you dump the tank (melted ice and all) while stuff is still in suspension. Later, J

    Ideal Alaskan RV?

    We camped on the shore of the Yukon River (a bit north of Fairbanks) one June for about a week. It was hot! Do not know how hot but the Fairbanks radio station we tuned into was reporting 90-91 degrees. So its not just cold in Alaska expect a little bit of every type of weather. Later, J PS Make sure you get something with a screens, both windows and door(s).

    Do I need tire chains

    I use the One Stop Shop website for information on road conditions, chain requirements, accidents. etc. My favorite feature is being able to look at roads on your travel route via the traffic cameras. Enjoy. Later, J http://oss.weathershare.org/?Center=42.18529516716987,-122.097248046875&Zoom=8&Layers=CCTV,traffic #.WsOVoIjwZRa

    Barb, Entered your blog and enjoyed reading it. Where do I deposit my $1.00? Later, J

    New to Satellite TV

    Check eBay. I just paid $359.33 for a new Winegard X2 and a Wally with free shipping. They both fired right up and DISH authorized without a hitch. Later, J
  12. I finally decided on DISH and got a Wally and Pathway X2. Setup was easy. Worth mentioning is that I had channels (not sure how many) when locked to 2 satellites. The voice remote is great as it lights up the buttons (if its dark) when you move it. Say Netflix and it pops open and you can navigate that site with the remote but the Wally needs internet to do this. I have a wireless adapter plugged in for this purpose. Later, J
  13. Hoppers are not listed on the Dish's website as mobile receivers. Is there a way to start a pay as you go account for the RV using one? Later, J
  14. Enlightening. Local channels are "network" channels. Not familiar with what's available on those so I will look into them before I jump. Will post another topic with Dish questions since it seems pretty well liked. Thanks Linda. Later, J
  15. Thanks doc. I will research the best way to get one and activate it in the garage. Later, J
