The whole website store

Seems as though every time I go to a website, I want to buy everything I see. it is sort of like going to Harbor freight. This time I bought a dual camera top daug dash cam for under 120 bucks. Looks like it will do what I want. Mostly to capture the idiot who uses up my stopping space at a multilane red light. I don't know why they want me to test my brakes on the back of their car????

HTFireMedic -- How does the Dish subscription work for an RV. My new one came with a Dish folding satellite dish on it. As I understand it, I need the Dish box (or control) to operate the satellite receiver. Is this what you will do?

Thanks!

Hi Don - I'm not HTFireMedic but I do have Dish service.

I purchased a Winegard MP-1 antenna and Vip211z receiver (box) from Camping World for about $100 each (on sale). As I understand it, owning the equipment makes you eligible for the "pay as you go" service from Dish. This is 30 days of service that you pay for in advance. If you don't pay, the service stops until you do pay again. I purchased the "Americas 120" package (or something like that) which gives me 120 channels but only about six that are worth watching. The cost is about $55/30 days. Being a cheapskate, that seems terribly expensive to me so I only purchase/use it when I expect to be stuck inside and bored (winter months). I wrote up my equipment setup here, it did not go very smoothly but now that I have it figured out, it is pretty simple.

Of course, upon initial setup Dish had my account messed up and this took several phone calls to straighten out. Seems to be the norm with service companies (poor service).

Camco 40595 RV Cyclone Sewer Plumbing Vent

Camping World has a buy one/get one free offer for $21 but the shipping brings it to about $30. I only need one, so eBay was cheaper.

We don't have a serious odor problem but occasionally it gets nasty, hope this helps!

There are multiple threads in the technology forum about just this topic. I'm sure you will find more info than you ever thought you'd need in one of those. Very interesting reading.

Just upgraded my fire preparedness with new extinguishers from Mac the Fire Guy. Got one large 2 liter foam extinguisher for the living room area and 3 small ones; 1 bedroom, one by the stove and one in the basement. Planning to add one more in the engine compartment shortly. Its the one purchase for the coach that I hope I never have to use but happy for spending the money.

Just wanted to say, we have Dish TV. I got a separate box for the motorhome and it only costs me $5 a month for that box, that's it. Before I paid for a separate subscription under another provider for the motorhome. This way I just don't worry about it, then when I first turn it on after being off so long sometimes they have to send a signal to get it going, that's it. Least expensive I've found so far.
