  1. Hi all, Quick update- I called DirecTV (one hour on the phone!). They said to disregard the email. I told them that the email said that "federal law does not allow DNS signals in a permanent resident". They said my account didn't need to worry about it. I have already sent in all the information they requested. They assured me it won't matter. We'll see.......
  2. Hi all, My hubby and I have a sticks and bricks but are on the road at least 6 months of the year. We have been DirecTV customers for 20+ years. When we travel we take our DVR boxes from the house and transfer them to the rv. I just got an email from them saying that they needed us to provide them with vehicle registration. I plan on calling them but I thought I'd check to see if anyone else has had this request. I think they will want us to establish a second account for the rv. I think we give them enough money as it is. Thanks in advance. I'm going to post this on another forum as well.

  4. Hi all, We have spent over ten years active rving (over six months on the road a year) and had five new fifth wheels (not pre-owned). We continue to have trouble with our kitchen sink waste tank valve. We are very careful to wipe down our dishes to remove grease before we wash them. My husband has replaced the valves but we seem to end up at the same place repeatedly. I have used dishwasher detergent and hot water (a YouTube suggestion) with no luck. I know the cable from the valve to the outside has had an impact on some of the valves but ultimately the valves eventually become so clogged they won't move. So we would love to hear about a new kind of valve or a new way of cleaning/emptying that would help us. Thanks in advance.
  5. Hi, We have tile in our entire fifth wheel except on one of the living room slides. We also have a senior dog who is deaf and has a bit of doggie dementia. We are loosing the battle of preserving the carpet (of course that's the only place he likes to pee!). We want to replace the carpet with tile. We have done research, found a few Youtube videos and think it's a project we can tackle. We'd love to hear from anyone who have done it. I also have concerns about anchoring the recliner stadium seating on that side (hubby says he's got a plan but I'm dubious). Any input is appreciated. Thanks in advance!
  6. Hi all, Our water pump does weird things. Most times no problem. Sometimes when you turn it on it runs without any water running. It stops by running water sometimes, by turning it off then back on sometimes, or by just turning it off. Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.
  7. He has to have bloodwork done every time. Plus there are insurance restrictions. At this point we've had three different doctors confirm this is the best course of action.
  8. Hi all, No one has been able to find the problem with our fireplace. We have had it in the shop, taken it back to the manufacturer and contacted the fireplace company. We have an Ambition fifth wheel made by Augusta and a Greystone fireplace. It cuts out occasionally. Right now it has been running fine for two day. Then it cuts out-sometimes in an hour or two, sometimes in a day or two. When you try to restart it cuts out within a minute. Obviously one of the problems is that it doesn't cut out consistently. Augusta sent us a new a new fireplace. Greystone sent us a new motherboard thinking that the replacement might be from a bad lot Augusta might have had. Augusta also reworked the wiring to the outlet. We took the fireplace out and ran it in the house, it ran fine. We plugged two space heaters in the outlet, they ran fine. Nothing indicated that there is anything wrong. Any thoughts on this mystery? Any more diagnostics we might try? A real head scratcher! Thanks in advance!
  9. Hi all, We have been very active RVers for nine years. We do own a home but travel at least six months of the year. We've been to Alaska twice, every state in the lower 48 as well as BC, Alberta, Nova Scotia, PEI and Newfoundland. We mix volunteering with touring. It has be been such a wonderful adventure. One year ago my husband was diagnosed with mylodisplactic syndrome (MDS), what they call pre-leukemia. He is what they call low to intermediate risk right now. He has been stable since his diagnosis. At some point he may need a bone marrow transplant but for now he just requires shots every one to two weeks. Needless to say it put a crimp in our travel last year. We were able to get away for six weeks. It took lots planning and record transferring. Everything went well though. We are currently on another six week trip. The planning and record transfer has been much more difficult. His doctor says that he could stay stable like this for four or five years. Also any health decline will be slow so no risk of a sudden problem. We want to try another big trip to Alaska. I am sure that many of you have health conditions but continue to travel. I would love to hear positive stories about your experiences. Thanks in advance!
  10. Hi all, We have a 40 foot Augusta Ambition fifth wheel. We have a progressive industries power management system which has a read out of power in and out. The power is divided between two lines. Of course we keep the power output under 50 amps. Should we also try to keep each line under 25 amps? On occasion one line has gone over 25 amps with no breakers blowing but I wasn't sure it was good to do. Thanks in advance!
  11. Hi all, I like the idea of front living rooms with the duel slides. Seems like you sacrifice some room in the bedroom in the rear but we spend more time in the living room anyway. Anyone out there have any thoughts or opinions? Thanks!
  12. Would love to have input- We purchased our fifth wheel last November. We have had three previous fifth wheels and are experienced Rvers. Also we have done extensive plumbing and electrical work to all our rigs. This was a custom high end unit. The manufacuturer was purchased and merged with another company during the final weeks of the assembly of our unit. We have never had an Rv with so many problems, many major dangerous problems. At this point the company has been great about taking care of all repairs. The warranty runs out in November. I really do think that this unit was caught in the chaos of the transition. The things that we've found makes it clear that there was no quality control. I want the company to extend the warranty past a year. I don't want to take legal action unless I have to. Based on Rv industry newsletters I know my problem isn't unique.
  13. Thanks for all the input on my first request. I know you are all anxious to know what I consider to be the ultimate way to travel and preserve those precious bananas. Here it is- After the bananas reach your desired ripeness separate them from their bunch. Wrap the end in saran warp (got this trick online). Then gently lay them on a towel in the the fridge. It's a bit of work but it seems to work for me.
  14. Hi all, I know this sounds inane but I am tired of throwing away food! We are on the road. I love to have a banana every day. One day of travel bruises my bananas terribly. I have tried to put them in a padded chair, on the carpet on the floor, nestled in towels and they always get bruises from the shaking of our fifth wheel. Any suggestions? Thanks!
