    Like said check slacks , maybe get brakes inspected by a tech. I had glazed front drums and cracked shoes years ago , not long after we bought the truck. I had nothing to compare it to. But after replacing everything it was a new truck stopping. On our truck with trailer connection plugged I prefer the feel of the brakes with trailer brake knob in all the time. I don’t like at all with it out. I feels like I’ll never slow down. Tractor protection valve. That being said, I always try to never need the brakes allow that space to let the Jake do the job.

    Water hose help!

    I hear ya. Bit pricy I know. I will stick with them as the performance has been 100% better than any others we ever had. 12yrs plus still in use. I like two 25’ hoses. I see they are $62.50 now. I think I paid like $50 ea when I bought them. I’d still buy them now if I needed more. I sell the Camco std hoses on our CG store for $20 for a 25’. That what most want to spend and own. All the leaking kinked up hoses we see on rigs are those type. Lol

    Water hose help!

    Water filter store hoses custom made not crazy $. Have used these for over 12 yrs on our fifth wheel. Moved them to a park model and they are in 5th year. Using shorter hoses from them for softener etc. They hold up very well. A new set are in use now on our current fifth wheel.
  5. Thanks Mark! 1. Yes still use and refer to newbies from Facebook! Lol 2. I use IPhone primarily

    Almost a bad day

    Good work Jim! Sometimes you just get lucky, but picking up on the issue was skill on both your parts! 😉
  7. Call Neal Denison at Near North brokers. We use them for all our commercial goods and they can look after the import for you. They will tell you exactly what you need. https://www.borderdocs.com/brokers/brokerprofile?brokerID=3706 I know right now the border is an issue to go get it and carry back. If you can wait until the border opens, then ship to a freight location on US side and with the hand carry docs from broker you cruise right through. Might just be HST and no duty depending on commodity. Made in USA will help. Neal will advise. They have a driver in here in Sault Ste. Marie that goes over daily to carry goods across while we can’t. Get extra fee is $30 to $60 for that. The actual customs brokerage is not bad at all. They will give you a quote.
  8. Yes!! What a story Jim! Head you stuck yo it your patience is huge! I resemble that part Milk crate test drive. Lol mine was a Camp chair!
  9. Thanks. It’s really bugging me I can’t seem to get this in. I have elev avail to adjust it gets signal. It’s not skewed very much. I tried to do more but loose other sats. I’m sure it’s me the rookie. 🤦‍♂️
  10. Thanks I have tried some more and still not getting green check on 129 Signal locked. Around 45-50. I am using phone app to get close and got all three but 129 still a problem. Trees blocking me on EA but I’ll have to maybe get creative.
  11. Thanks Mark I have. Lock on 129 but no green check. It’s red x. signal 35
  12. We run a Hopper on Dish with traveler and Dph42. in RV. All good parked here. Moved into house and set up and aimed manual dish first time. Set up in house for summer and can’t get thru trees for EA but good sky to WA. I bought proper WA Dish with Hybrid three LNBs. Mounted on house. 110, 119, 129 signal is tad low. 45 and down to 35 some times on all three. tried for higher but had to balance We are located in UP Michigan Sault Ste Marie All programming comes in and guide builds. Locals come in good. Have 110 and 119 with green on diagnostics page other is redX. All three show locked. Issue is several channels only come in SD like NBCSN and a Fox sports ESPN, HGTV and more Locals are in SD because we are on WA HD on locals are on EA We did get all programming In HD except locals on the traveler. Signal was around the same. is there a certain sat I should focus on to get these in HD? It’s a battle to get more signal on one and not loose on others
  13. Good job Jim the new A/S expert! Go to Volvo for the Reman XY.
