  1. Many people use a external portable satilite dish. You just connect it to the outside of your RV. The problem is that you may need a different receiver than the one you are using for the Traveler. For instance Dish has the Pathfinder X2 portable satellite dish using a 211Z receiver. Also DirecTv I believe can only get SD and not HD on their portable satilite dish, but I may be wrong?

    Many in the RV world use FL, TX or SD as their domicle. I chose SD because the sales tax on the purchase of my rig was lower, they have no income tax, I don’t need a special drivers license to drive my Class A DP, and I can registure by mail without an inspection.
  3. You can also go on campgroundreviews.com and look at an area or specific campground by name and see the info about the campground, reviews and a link to the campgrounds website.
  4. The article states that they will be offered a discounted rate to join. Maybe, I’m guessing, the same renewal rate I was offered, $50 for one year, rather than $75. Anything that can increase membership seems like a good idea. Thousands of $50 members is better than only hundreds of $75 members. Maybe next FMCA can make the same offer to Newmar, Tiffin, Entegra and Winnebago owners?
  5. Thanks for that info. I have a Itasca with the LCI leaving system. Will look forward to any pics you can post.
  6. Not sure about those locations you mentioned but in my 8 years of full time travel I have found Verizon to have the best coverage with AT&T a close second. Sprint, T-Mobile, Boost, US Cellular and all the others like them are only good when in a major metropolitan area and have limited service out on the road.
  7. I will be traveling from Rapid City to Lake Havasu at the end of Sept. Not sure if I should take I-70 west from Denver (going thru the Eisenhower tunnel) to I-15 south thru Las Vegas or stay on I-25 south from Denver to I-40 West at Albuquerque. I’m a little worried about the weather on I-70. Your thoughts? I am driving a Class A DP pulling a Jeep Wrangler.
  8. I just got an email that FMCA is offering a one year renewal for the reduced price of $50. You must renew online using the email. If you go to the FMCA Web site or renew on the phone you will be charged the full renewal price. Even tho my membership doesn’t expire till Feb 2021 I just renewed for another year at $50. Now I’m good till Feb 2022.
  9. If the Shaw is in working order I would just use it and get rid of the Winegard.
  10. Are you in a camp ground? Ask the front office for a recommendation. Or check on rvservicereviews.com.
  11. I purchased the FMCA Roadside Service Plan last year just after it went up from $64 to $75. Fortunately I did not have to use it. I did not renew because the cost went up to $158 for a motorhome. The price increase was not the fault of FMCA. I got the exact same plan thru Escapees at $99.
  12. Good info on the link but I could not find any date on it. How current is the information?
  13. You did not cancel, they canceled on you. Demand a full refund. If they won’t then I would contact my credit card company and dispute the charges. They have breached the contract and must refund you in full.
  14. Wow. $42,500!!! Is that a typo? Did it really cost you that much?
