Well we have new shoes on the Beaver and I have to say it has made a huge difference course I only drove it 16 miles back to our parking spot. The real test will begin on Friday.

I have a question .... do any of the GC attendees have any experience pointing the roof mounted dish properly or good apps to help pinpoint the crazy thing, right now its kind of hit and miss.

Cheers !!!
Let me tell you a short (maybe not) story about satellite dishes. Had a single LNB, wanted HD so got a dual LNB. Had one devil of a time with skew, elevation, azimuth, and especially getting them all correct at one time, or even together.

So, on one excursion with the RV sites real, real close to each other, I attempted again. Since the RV Park was alternating site assignments, I set the dish up in the track of the next site closest to my RV. I struggled for over an hour trying to get that thing locked on. I just said the heck with it, went inside to cool of and have a "cool" one. I noticed it was starting to get dark and just to be on the safe side that the site next to us was not given to someone, I went outside, pulled up the stakes, picked the whole satellite dish and tripod up as one piece and set it down behind the motorhome. I re-staked it just in case of a wind coming up and I'd take it all down and put it away the next morning. Went back in the MH and had all three satellites locked in, 110, 119, and 129. Go figure, go figure.

Next time on an excursion and having trouble for over an hour I said to Earlene, "Come on, we're going to the RV store get a Carryout antenna." I have never regretted it since the first day I got the Carryout.

I will be very happy to assist you. I will sit in the lawn chair, sipping smoothies, and I'll even do all the cussing for you. How's that.

I will not push bacon and will ignor visible rope lights. But I will appreciate the tolerance of others in my shamless love of BACON and my kinky, wrankled, abhorrence of ropus lightus.
One of the things I don't have and could care less about is a satellite receiver. The really bad news is I am addicted to Ropus Lightus multi colour changing variety to boot.

Wow change short of 14,000 posts and page 1000. #1 & #2 you have really started something, Congrats again guys #40.

Dennis - like I told on the phone a while back - you don't have to win the lottery - I do. If I win you're in bud!

So a guy wanders unknowingly on to a stage. A phone rings. He crosses the stage, picks up the phone and says hello. Just then there's a knock on the door. He walks to the door and opens it. A man yells cut. That was excellent. What acting! You've got the part. The man scratches his head and says so who ordered the pizza? That's what Dave and I did. We asked the best collection of RV enthusiasts in the universe if they would like to exit said verse for the rainbow. And like that - the RVMdom was born.

Hey that's gorgeous! Quick? I'd have taken hours over it! I like the choice of colors especially, and the burst of background texture.

Cheers!

Sue, I see you. You and I are the only ones looking at this thread right now. It must be the middle of the week or something like that and all the other STM's are resting for the weekend - or getting ready for the GC.

G'mornin', mutant friends! Awfully quiet on here this AM.

We're driveway camping, but hate to unload since it's so close to time for REloading. Martin is basically one-armed since he fell & broke his wrist yesterday, but he had gotten the burst pipes in the S&B repaired before that happened.

He's itching to get things done on the Wrangler before it either sells or he surrenders it to the Jeep dealer as part of our trade-in, but it may be that he has to direct me in replacing a broken headlamp. The back seat needs to be re-installed, a heavier job than I can manage, and the base plate and extra braking system may need to be removed. Ack!!!

There's never a good time for such accidents, is there? At any rate, we figure to make it to GC@CL. All the driving controls are on his left. The down side is we might need some muscular help once parked.

Good thing there are lots of big strapping handsome men in this bunch! I may have to do some sweet-talkin'! Or bribe folks with bacon. Yeah, that's it: bacon bacon bacon!

Cheers!
Sue

Hiya, Wayne! I'm on the iPhone, so can't see you seein' me. Happy Thursday!

Everybody else may be sleeping in, getting their beauty sleep in prep for the weekend...or the GC@CL. Think I'll go back to bed! Maybe that'll help!

Cheers!
Sue
