  1. Our normally routine tax prep has been complicated for 2015 by selling a sticks and bricks home, changing domicile state, selling several vehicles, buying another, buying an RV and going full-time on the road.. Does anyone have any recommendations for help with tax preparation? Bonus for tax prep in Texas near Houston/Livingston. Thanks!
  2. Okay. Last update I received was on this forum with a 4 wk estimate for production units to go out. That was over 8 weeks ago. I'll have to double check my records as for my card being charged or not. Thanks for the update... Wish a regular email would go out instead of having to track down information. I don't know his web site as I ordered over the phone from him via advice on this forum.
  3. I pre-ordered mine months ago and have received no updates. I'm wondering if I got scammed.
  4. Definitely have water coming in.. slide has been out and it's been raining like crazy and now the floor is much wetter than before.
  5. That slide is actually out further. The seals clear the windows on that one. On mine I have about an inch to go. Also we've been getting a lot of rain lately and as I was messing around looking for things that could be the cause I noticed the carpet is wet. The slide has been in, so not sure if it rain related or something else... But I'm a little concerned I have a leak somewhere...
  6. On the inside it's questionable.. That's why I'm asking. There's a sponge padding on the inside that just barely touches. It is about 1.5" thick so I suspect it should compress a little.
  7. 2009 Newmar Allstar. Post updated. Only a handful made in the U.S. Hopefully other Newmar owners have similar slides.
  8. Was wondering if a more seasoned RVr could tell me if this looks right to them. I picked up this RV a few weeks ago and I've been going through fixing up the things that need fixing. It is a 2009 Newmar Allstar Anyway, while lubricating the slides I noticed a couple things. The first thing I noticed was a small rip in the seal on the bottom of the bed room slide. I'm not sure it merits replacing.. but if I do decide to tackle the job is there a certain technique to doing so? The second thing is that the slide doesn't appear to be extending all the way out. I get this impression because the windows aren't clearing the seals. I found a nut that seems to be the adjuster nut for telling the slide when to stop, but before I back it off a couple turns I wanted to make sure that I'm correct in thinking it's not extending all the way and get any advice on doing it. I've attached some pictures to show what I'm talking about. https://www.dropbox.com/s/96bxuwoxiof7oju/back.win.1.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/b6241pv3kpl1c64/back.win.2.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/tfa1n9qvbrbbqdm/nut.1.jpg https://www.dropbox.com/s/krle1bjcll6xd17/nut.2.jpg

  10. The original intent of this post wasn't to get feedback on what I should buy. It was to try and get an explanation of the differences between the two devices and understand how the features work. ELI5 means Explain Like I'm 5 years old. It started off okay with getting basic explanations of what the devices do and that was the main thing I was looking for. I then started to get links to the sites that go in a lot of depth. My comments weren't directed at them not providing valuable information to the community. Instead I was trying, poorly on my part, to point out that the information is a lot more than a 5 yo could understand. I can't find anywhere that really talks about "how the feature works" in a way a 5 year old could understand. FYI, part of me asking this question was so I could figure out a simpler way to explain what these devices do and how they work to my children. Sorry if people think I'm being harsh on Jack and Technomadia, I'm not trying to be. I understand this stuff well enough to know what I'm looking for. I don't understand it well enough to break it down into terms my children can understand. I was hoping someone in the community might be able to.
  11. Thanks TCW, I've read all those posts already and I've been to the above web sites. None of them answer the question of which is "best" and always encourage the person doing the buying to figure out what is "best" for them. When I said "best" I simply meant best for me. I appreciate all their efforts to share their findings but they all sing the same song in the end. It's information overload and nobody really takes the time to "dumb" it down for anyone. Not that I'm looking for anyone to "dumb" it down for me. Just saying they aren't the best resources for helping people decide what to do. Anyone that's not familiar with this process can spend days reading and still not understand what they are reading. Unfortunately, I don't have a good alternative to send people to myself, so it's still the best we've got...
  12. Got my pre-order in. Now I just need to figure out the best device for WiFi pickup and rebroadcast.
  13. How do I put an order in? Site doesn't appear to let me. Any ETA when they'll start shipping?
  14. Gord, Any updates on the release? I still don't see a way to order it. Any chance you can get me on the order list? Or as a beta tester?
  15. Well here's the post that shows it off! http://www.rvnetwork.com/index.php?showtopic=118781
