New seats

Coming back from vacation decided to stop in Woodland, WA and see if Dave and LJs RV Interior Design had any used seats. Found a driver and a passenger seat from a Tiffin that were a good color and a couple of years old. They had the old ones removed and the new ones installed in about two hours.


DW is happy to get rid of the old one. It was huge.

OTA antennas are quickly becoming worthless. Most TV stations now are no longer broadcasting OTA. About 95% of viewing is either cable or dish now so they are saving allot of money by only feeding those media sources.

We still find our OTA antenna quite useful. We find OTA most places we go and if we don't, that's ok too.

Not sure where you get this information. We have traveled all over the U.S. and always have over the air channels if they are available and we are within receiving range of the broadcasts. Chuck

Unless you can give a source for that data, I can't believe this is true. I see plenty of OTA broadcasting. In fact with digital there are more OTA choices than ever before.

That's a bunch of total misinformation.

We are currently sitting in a CG along Lake Champlain watching the Olympics with 22 other channel choices including ALL of the major networks.

Also, we have traveled all over the US and never once did we not have some level of reception tho of course with not all of the drivel seen on cable.

If you want to debate the future of OTA, please take it to a new thread as it's for this thread.

Thanks,

How is it one careless match can start a forest fire but it takes a whole box to start a campfire?

Sorry but you are 100% completely wrong on every point you attempted to make here. OTA is alive, well and expanding! Any station that turns off their transmitter LOSES there license, period. With the very very rare instance of some very small town mom and pop LPTV's found dark, OTA has AT LEAST QUADRUPLED its business by adding thousands of additional channels to their existing carriers, some of them are very good too. My source of information: I'm Dir.of Engineering for a major broadcast group. Case closed.

Mod, sorry I just saw ur post but there is no further discussion

Thumbs up

It was bought earlier, but got to test the new HELIUM cooling unit we installed on the NORCOLD 1200 this last week. We spent a week on the beach in 60's to mid 70's, then home to 104+ in the shade for two days, and the fridge stayed a consistent 30/2 degrees at #6 setting. And with Helium the fire hazard is gone..
