  1. These tend to come and go. You have to be ready when they're available and pounce. The Mobley we use was not easy to get even during the time it was available, because it was so unexpectedly popular. Jay
  2. Perhaps I wasn't precise enough in my response, Joel. My point was that our viewing habits have changed to no longer include much network TV, so we don't have a subscription to say, YouTube TV OR Dish Network. Our tastes run more to Netflix, YouTube, Prime, etc. In general, we're not interested in scheduled shows or sports, but rather in programming on demand. Yes, all our viewing is streaming and that serves us well for our way of watching. For every viewer, there's a different perspective on what works best. Jay
  3. If you have the "old style" satellite dish, it probably won't work with today's systems. I had a King Controls in motion dish and it became obsolete several years ago, so I had to upgrade to a newer one. Although I lost the in motion ability, the new antenna was much faster to acquire satellites and was a worthwhile upgrade. If you need 24/7 TV access, that's probably the best way to go. Dish Network is more RV friendly than DirecTV, with no contract plans from $40 up. We've moved to streaming though, as we don't need a lot of TV. Jay

    cold and diesel

    The fuel will be fine after temps rise, but the question is, where did you buy the fuel? If you bought it north of the Mason Dixon line, it's already blended for winter use. No worries. If you bought it in FL, you may want to treat it, or add some northern fuel. Jay

    block heater

    Sure, that's the whole point. But, just like any heater, it's not inexpensive. Jay
  6. And again, not true. My wife and I have a Medicare Advantage PPO which works nationwide, with thousands of in-network providers. Mine is from Ohio, but 95% of my medical procedures and Dr's have been in FL, or some other state. Very happy with their service.
  7. Okay, that does it! I'm eating at your place!
  8. Thanks, Joel. That sounds really easy and delicious.... And a good reason to buy one of those gadgets. Hopefully I'll have time soon to try it out. Jay
  9. That sounds great! Is there a way to do a rub with that process to get a nice "bark" on the ribs? I've made delicious ribs on the grill, but they're so time consuming that's it's almost not worth it. Thanks, Jay
  10. Netflix has quite a few programs and movies that can be downloaded. Jay
  11. The issue with phone navigation is the requirement to be online. As soon as you have no internet connection, you have essentially no navigation, other than the cache data stored in the phone for that trip. That is why I use both phone navigation AND free standing, self contained nav units. I almost always have satellite signal, but often lose the internet connection. Redundancy gives me continuous guidance. Jay
  12. Commercial vs private truck would be comparing apples and oranges. Commercial trucks have no tractor length restrictions, therefore you'll see mammoth size tractors pulling 53' trailers. If you're not plated and operating commercially, you're subject to the individual state RV length laws. Jay
  13. Your driver's license has nothing to do with state by state length laws. Bring qualified to drive a private and/or commercial vehicle doesn't change the way each state chooses to write and enforce their length laws. Length laws are written about vehicles, not drivers.
  14. I had the same thing happen at home when we changed internet providers. I finally solved it by connecting directly to the new router, instead of using our original router. Sorry I can't help more with a solution, but... Maybe something to do with your ISP??? Maybe it's your browser? Have you tried it on Wi-Fi, or someone else's Wi-Fi? Good luck, Jay

    Our Fisher Paykel was an unexpected bonus in our used Newmar, but we're very happy with it and enjoy using it. Jay
