  1. I just went back a page. Guess I'm missing something.
  2. The Winegard antennae can be programmed through the receiver to a specific satellite, well the DISH Wally can. As Herman stated, call Winegard or DTV and see what they have to say. Also, a little (big) birdie could have left you a deposit directly on the horn of the antenna. Check it for "stuff."
  3. Lippert. Last MH was Kwikee and it was hydraulic both ways.
  4. My manual says to use Silicone Spray and wipe the shaft down. I don't know about the 2010 Bus but my last MH and this one does not have springs to retract. Each jack has two hydraulic hoses, one for extending and one for the return fluid.
  5. It can also be caused by low hydraulic fluid if the system is hydraulic. Could be a partially clogged solenoid. One test for sediment that can clog solenoid is to take wife's turkey baster (just don't tell her) and stick it in the fluid, stir a little then strain it through a paper towel or cheesecloth. If rust or lots of sediment it is time to flush the system.
  6. Fourth time there. Yoder's Barn, second floor, right hand corner is the best soft pretzels there are. We also go to an Amish house dinner which are grate,
  7. We were on I-40 from Cookeville, TN to Lebanon, TN. I-71 was unvelievable with 3 lanes of traffic stop and stop and go. Eventually, for no known reason, it sped up for a mile, then to 2 lanes and the reason was clearer. On each side of the cement barrier were police cars with lights going. Each sitting in the lane near the barrier. There was absolutely not a thing going on around them on the highway. Once the 2 lane got past them, 1 lane, it opened up until the next Interstate change, then just the normal heavy traffic. From here we head to Indianapolis KOA for 3 nights, then Shipshewana South RV Park for 5 weeks to enjoy moderate day time temps and in the 60's at night. p.s., I spent the first 19 years of my life in Central Mass but it was an accident of birth!
  8. Traveled today through TN and KY. the ratio of trucks to cars on the interstate was about 3 to 1 (trucks 3, cars 1) How did I measure it. 5 or 6 miles in 1-1/2 hours. Rather easy to see the differences. Truckers are on the road, for sure. Had other major slow down's. It took us 9 hours, with a 1/2 lunch hour break to go about 275 miles.
  9. Were you able to secure it to move or did you have to wait for the parts. If you had to secure it, how did you do it.
  10. I already have reservations so don't need the spot, but what spot is it? 😎 Might be a next time!
  11. Kay, you available Tuesday or Wednesday for drinks of water? Joe, state park looks good but we need reservations and it is first come first parked! No reservations. We used to travel that way but after the COVID surge in RV Purchases found manu parks full up. However, with this fuel crunch most of the parks we have reservations in are much less than full. Yesterday, here at Ameristar, Vicksburg, MS., there were two RV's here. Ours and our neighbors. today there are about a Dozen and the price is right.
  12. Presently in Vicksburg, MS. Going to Tuscaloosa, AL, then Sparta, TN, FLorence, IN, Indianapolis, IN, then final stay for 5 weeks in Shipshewana, IN,. Anyone passing by, wave! (or stop and say hello)
  13. Sorry to hear that Ray. The rule of our MH is; drinks for 6, dinner for 4 and sleeps 2 so you will have to get a motel room. There is a nice one right next to the CG. Probably cost as much as the CG so come on down.
  14. Yep, done the Left Coast about 4 times from San Diego to Whidbey IS. Temperatures on the Left Coast are typically mild, like mid 70's and especially the further North one goes. Lived in New England the first 19 years of my life, but it was an accident of birth. Left as soon as I could. Weather up there was iffy. Some times during the summer the humidity would be real high, like in the 60's. Ha, not like here on the Texas Coast where Humidity gets into the 80's. Your post seems to indicate that you want to stay relatively close to home so the mountains with elevation would be the better choice. As for driving in the mountains, watch you temperature gauge and as it starts to climb above 205 or so, down shift and keep the RPM's are around 2000. I've been up a few mountains at 25 mph but never had an engine overheat. Good luck and happy trails.
  15. If'n you have a hankering to spend the money, Flexsteel but they may have already closed their doors on RV furniture, call them, Otherwise Coach Supply Co.
  16. We live on the Gulf Coast of Texas. For several years we have tried to escape the summer heat. We are near the same latitude as Orlando, FL. With that said, this will be our 4th trip to Shipshewana, IN. Not NC or GA and about 1200 miles for us. Google is your friend. Pick a location and query Google for weather in that area. But remember that weather patterns do change. Last time in Shipshewana the temperatures were in the high 80's during the day, however in the evenings we had an outside fire and light jackets on. I'll take that over mid 80's temperatures in the evening here in TX with humidity close to the temperature. We will be in Shipshewana from August 1st through Sep 7th. Come on down.
  17. Four or 5 years ago broke down on a very busy intersection (hwy 6 and Hwy 35 business, Alvin) Made it to a good spot. Called GS. Tow truck showed up and towed me 40 miles to the Cummins Dealer. I asked what it would have cost me if I had to pay for it and he replied, "Around $750." Never had a problem. Prior to 2008 I had Coach Net and was towing 5'er back then. Truck would not start. CN towed it to the diesel repair place. Computer chip and not covered so it was out of my pocked except for the towing.
  18. Ha ha! After you posted regarding 10 gallons I went back and changed it to $10. Yep, got you good!
  19. Ray, you need to read between the lines and words. Let's say $10 worth of fuel today is not going to get you as far as $10 worth of fuel yesteryear! Send you to school, buy you books, and what do you do. Rip the binding off and smell the glue! Sheesh!
  20. 10 dollars is not going to go very far right now.
  21. I did receive a reply from FMCA basically stating that the savings were from the old prices, like a single year being $75 back then. They probably need to look at the wording. I personally found it confusing. But hey! $50 is still a good deal.
