  1. This is what I found regarding your question about Roadside Assistance towing services Is the vehicle pulling my 5th-Wheel or Travel Trailer covered? Yes, both vehicles are covered. If the truck pulling your 5th-Wheel breaks down, for example, both the truck and 5th-Wheel will be moved to the nearest qualified repair center (the trailer may be towed to the nearest campground). If a service center is not available, depending on the time of night, SafeRide RV will make every effort to move you to a safe location.
  2. We just ordered a Car In Tow sign from "Magnets On The Cheap" I used the Student Driver sign and changed it to "Car In Tow" and left the "Keep Back" on. A 12"x18" was $8.
  3. So while we have the coach in the shop getting new shoes, is there anything you can tell me to have done that will help with the sway or air pull when driving on the interstates and the big rigs go around us. I've heard comments on the different types of shocks, but have no idea what to do, or if there is anything at all we can do besides purchase a DP?
  4. Thanks Herman. Good advice, I'll do that.
  5. Carl, At the RVMH Hall of Fame museum in Elkhart, IN the first campers had them. It looked very comical to see them actually. If you haven't been there, it's certainly worth the trip. http://www.rvmhhalloffame.org/
  6. Our dealer has to order the tires. I called them back and gave them all the info on Michelin-Advantage program and two #'s to call, along with my FMCA member number. He is suppose to call and then call me back today. Sure hoping we can take advantage of this program as it is supposed to save quite a bit of money per tire. I will also tell him that I want recent tire stamps when he calls back. How often is recommended to replace tires? Depending on mileage on them, or age of tire/wear? We bought our 2007 coach in 2014 with 2,100 miles. The tires looked great when we bought it, but after two trips to LA/FL we started noticing outside wear and the coach was towing in. We had it aligned yesterday and that's when they told us our tires were 11 years old (which we knew) and in bad need of being replaced due to wear and flat spots.
  7. If your tire dealer does not participate in the program and you have to get tires, can you get any type of rebate/return? Wishful thinking?
  8. Our friends have the same issue with CW, OTA and Cable does not work once Satellite was installed. And they (CW) found other issues wrong with their coach and wanted to fix for outlandish prices. Like a strip of caulk on the outside of the coach about 12 feet long ended up costing them $3,000. Never will we take anything to them for service. May purchase something out of the store if I can't find it cheaper anywhere else, but not usually. We only purchase our TP from WM. Scott brand is the best and softest, not like that sandpaper on all the other brands.
  9. Thank you Bill. That certainly clears it up for me. So, no matter where I go if I just want to watch satellite TV all I need to do is put up the dish. However, if I want to see the local network channels I can either use my OTA TV antenna or call my satellite service and ask them to change my SERVICE address and give them an exact address for where I'm parked and site# if in a RV park. But, in looking at the entire situation, our friends satellite was installed by CW and now they cannot get cable if the park they are at offers it. Is that true with all coaches that have satellite installed? My DH and I have been thinking our friends have so many issues receiving satellite wherever they go that it's totally not worth it. We pretty much can receive anything we want to watch using the OTA antenna or cable if the park offers it and no additional cost factors for us.. We are not huge TV watchers anyway and mostly enjoy being outside doing something. Thanks to all for the info. I knew this was the place to go to get answers. Just so much knowledge on this forum.

  10. kaypsmith, What do you mean by a reset of the receiver to the local zipcode? Are you just recycling the receiver?
  11. We do not currently have satellite TV on our MH, but friends of ours do. They have a Winegard, with Dish I believe. Their issue is that each time they move, they have to call and reset the zipcode they are in. They have been told by Dish they are not allowed to change zipcodes often like they have been doing. Crazy, I know since it's on a MH. Just want to know what all the full timers with satellite do when they change locations. New to how this all works. Tilldee
  12. We do not have satellite TV in our MH, but thinking about it. From what I am hearing, you need to call in each location you're staying at in order to receive satellite TV. Is that the case, or am I missing something? Seems to me that would get quite old after awhile. HELP me to understand how this all works. If someone already has asked this question, then I missed it. Thanks, Tilldee
  13. Am I'm assuming those things are very expensive to upgrade?
  14. Not hijacking John's thread, but pertaining to amps in the coach, we currently have a 30 amp coach. Is it possible to upgrade the coach to 50 amp? This would sure help and I wouldn't have to keep turning off the A/C when using another appliance, like my hair dryer. We only have the one A/C but the coach is wired to add another one and has the control in the bedroom.
