  1. I was wondering could some one cover a topic travel trailers ,5th wheel, bus , semi's and semi trailers, and anything recreational W H A T IS T I R E LIFE FOR THEM? I have never seen this covered HUM ! Tim the mailman
  2. Just a little update With research the Winegard Trav'ler dish sk1000 or directv swm-3 can be interchange on the top end with kits to change with either system. BUT use the main unit on the roof. So, I have a SD G3 on the roof at this time. BUT with the providers playing with SD or HD at this time you the customer has to be able to change with them. So I believe the Winegard Trav'ler is the best option for installing one time to the roof, or upgrading the hardware on the fly. This is the reason for thinking out loud. The problem is finding a clear 44" by 34" clear Flat spot in roof area on the class C to install the system. I have a Class C Winnebago 32 ft Itasca Cambria 30J, with the sky light close by on the roof, this is going to be interesting to say the least. Thanks for all the reads. Is there any Class C units out there that run this setup? Tim the mailman Retired 40 years carrier
  3. I am looking for a camper with a Class C that uses a Trav'ler Winegard Sat Antenna. First problem is finding a open space 44"by 34" area. My Class C is a Winnebago Cambria 2014 30J. Just not to sure of clearance and trees above the roof at almost 3 feet. So if you run this setup on a Class C I need some advice. Thanks for reading Tim the mailman
  4. gfbrower I was wondering does the manual have any thing maintenance? that being the pivot points. I am planing to buy a Trav'ler SWM-3 for Directv for my use. We would think clean and oil it some where. Is it binding. ? Tim the Mailman
  5. I also am confused what to do about the future of equipment TV with the recreational vehicle. With the thoughts of SD going out of signals and HD the one to be the future, for TV on the road will require research. We to believe the Trav'ler Dish or DirectV might be the way to go. Upon reading they do both SD and HD, and the list of equipment available for use with the Trav'ler Directv or Dish is listed at the Winegard Web site. SO, do check the hardware equipment needed for a SYSTEM to work with RV.. The system I have at the moment is only SD. There should a lot of discussion concerning this topic, and costs to bare.

  6. This is a update to my original post. This applies to Directv only. I just got off the phone call with a REP with Winegard Corp Office in Iowa . If you have a SD receiver Directv , they are being replaced by only HD receivers . They are phasing out SD in the future. If you are concern about this the Trav'ler Winegard for Directv can received both SD and HD, This was my understanding of the topic. Tim the Mailman
  7. It has been on the internet concerning Directv no longer in the future not to host SD. This would mean maybe we all should keep in mine to get ready for HD only for our camping needs,with Direct TV. So, if we have a SD setup Directv on the roof of the motor home, how much trouble to convert to a HD system.? Would everything have to be replace? For instance ,HD TV, a receiver Box, and a new Sat dish. Will One have to modify the roof to hold all the weight of a bigger Sat Dish? Has any one with a trailer , motor home try to update their system. Tim the Mailman Class C Winnebago Itasca Cambria 2014 32 ft long 3 slides
  8. SNOW SNOW GO AWAY COME BACK ANOTHER DAY I have a Class C Winnebago Itasca Cambria 32 ft. 2014. We have a spare on a steel rim in the hatch back storage area. Some time in the fall we had to remove the inside dual rear tire, because of a broken valve stem. We have Aloca Mags on the outside wheel positions. Make sure if you call for a AAA service make sure to explain you need a big truck with air tools. Those nuts are set at 150 lb-ft? I have never check the spare tire for air pressure 20 PSI is a long way to 80PSI. SO, if you have a space check its tire pressure. No good having a SPARE if you have a FLAT as one. SO when you check tire pressures include all tires that being a spare. I was lucky they have air on there RIG.. My stems are solid metal stems. Tim the mailman

  15. Carl, Wayne, Bill. Michael This was a great Article Topic. Motor Homes , Travel Trailers, 5TH Wheels: They or a lot of them have sides. Carl, not all of them have jacks. Using jacks or not , Should everyone that have slides must have jacks? I think your comment is right on. If you have jacks they should be used. SO, if you have slides should you have jacks?
