RE: Xfinity stream

Apple branded hdmi dongle. About 50 buck's , at least they were . One thing I can tell you is Do not use the off brand 18-30$ look alikes as they don’t work or won’t work for long. The Apple system won’t recognize them.. I know this from personal experience. Look for Lightning digital av adapter on apples site to know what it is. While there if just order it from them . Using the dongle it uses your phones high speed data . The hotspot data I can guarantee you isn’t really unlimited and you’ll be cut off very quickly.

RE: Xfinity stream

Yes you can in many cases. What phone /tablet ..Apple or android or? you have and what tv and its capabilities will dictate how.

RE: Getting Warranty Service While Living In Your RV

One caution I would be careful with is saying I live in the rv.In Most rvs that invalidates the warranties. When I full timed I told them I was seasonal and in the middle of a trip , and I had a full time rated rv! With some work you will need a motel and make that clear up front that you are out motel costs . Lastly I’d bypass the dealer totally unless I was confident. If the factory offers service I’d go there first. Since you are in fact full time ( I assume moving , not just living in a rv in a park in town) do make it part of your route to visit the factory They will have parts on hand and service will be quick and less painless. Do some sightseeing while there. Fact is as you full time things May require you out of the rv at times . Plan for that expense and logistics. Sounds like your dealer is willing to work with you to order the parts after seeing what you need and let you go until they get them. That’s very rare! most want to keep the rv on their property until the job is done so you don’t ghost them on the parts

RE: Streaming

You will use 1- 3 gb per hour of viewing. High def 1080p, pretty much every tv now , is the 3 So unfortunately no , 10 will not be enough unless you only watch very little tv. We are using 150-200 per month as we travel this summer about 35-50 gb a week. Of course that’s us. Everyone is different.

RE: Motorhomes with 19.5 vs 22.5 tires

Yes the 22.5 also comes with a larger heavier chassis. You don’t option the 22.5 by itself Is it the smaller tires or the lighter capacity chassis, springs etc ? Probably a combination. The bigger I’ve gone , the better it handled but the bigger ones all have many upgrades in suspension. And of course weight.

RE: Holiday Rambler anyone?

The fleetwood/ Holiday Ramber are in fact exact twins of each other. Color and minor style changes. It’s been that way for many years , same assembly , nothing new. I’ve known a couple friends with a Bounder and they love it! A few minor problems , nothing any new coach doesn’t have. They ( and I) Love the new v8 and much improved f53 chassis. Not everyone needs a Diesel, and I’ve had a few.

RE: Michelin vs Toyo tires

Keep in mind Michelin makes “rv” specific tires. I think the tread is not as deep because 200,000 miles service isn’t important and the sidewalls are made I would bet softer for a ride that is more palatable to Lexus drivers. In doing so I would bet an rv that is still a truck/ bus underneath has some unique issues. If we are talking smaller auto or pickup tires it is a different situation.

RE: tires

Neighbor did , got 6 rear tires ( tag) a little over a year ago. He was very happy. They had A local mobile tire service come out and installed on his site. I looked at the price and it was a little high maybe but considering they came to him not out of line. The tires were all good date codes , 3 months old if I remember what he told me.

RE: Potential purchase of MH

Why would anyone pay to deliver a motorhome to you to inspect for a very large cost ( over a thousand ) with no done deal. Common sense says you can and should buy a plane ticket yourself and take a couple days to look at it. On this type of purchase that’s the least you should do. If you can’t do that how do you expect to find time to use said motorhome? Sounds like a scam. Run. There are plenty of local Oregon NW buyers no seller would do what you describe.

RE: Slides out or autolevelers down first?

I think most of those that want the engine running also say in the guide “or plugged in or generator on”. In the several coaches we have had I never unplugged until the final walk around, slides and jacks up ready to go. Parking the plug-in is first on my walk around before slides or leveling. The only reason for the engine on is to not overload the battery. With the converter still online no engine is needed. As a plus the neighbor is happy

RE: Slides out or autolevelers down first?

Manufacturers have different rules. You need to look at what yours says for your year. You can’t make a blanket statement. Mine says “ this “ isn’t an answer. My Marquis is slides ( ride height) then level .. but that may not apply to yours.

RE: CB radios - Do you use one?

I was a truck driver and used them all the time mostly just to keep awake talking to others. Have one in the motorhome but it only gets used when we caravan with camping club friends which we no longer do. Just takes up space.

RE: Fire Cube Gen 3

A smart tv by the name “smart” includes firetv or roku or android or some other proprietary built in internet stream ability. The Vizio tv we bought was slow to react and I didn’t like the “smart cast “ interface . so we plugged in the fire stick to an hdmi port and just use it. When you purchase a new one be aware of the streaming system it uses if it matters to you. Roku is probably more prominent in TV’s I’ve seen … Truth is while they all use different looking menus they all do the same thing if you get used to them.

RE: Connect Bluetooth Headphones to TV

Yes search for bluetooth audio transmitter for tv. You’ll find several. All with different input methods rca ( headphone Jack ) optical out etc and some for one connection out and some that can handle two separate audio devices ( two headphones) The usb out I would think depends on the tv’s capabilities

RE: Michelin vs Toyo tires

As a former truck driver myself the first few thousand miles on new tires on my tractors always had them “ Squirrley “ the thick tread needed to break in. I hated the first few trips but they always settled in. I’m not sure but Michelin Motorhome specific tires I’ve always believed are made with much less tread and a softer sidewall for “ride” concerns of motor home drivers. Motor home drivers are used to “car” ride and pretty picky expecting a “Cadillac ride” .from what is essentially a truck or bus chassis Long term mileage and constant use / abuse durability isn’t a priority on very low mileage vehicles. My toyo 144 have been great they settled in pretty quickly.

RE: Norcold on Inverter

Well , I know a few folks that don’t but I know many more that just leave the gas on. Most gas refrigerators are plugged into a non inverted outlet. ( except for the ice maker ) . Most that run without propane on just leave the fridge off. Be sure to change it to the inverted circuit if there is one , if that’s what you decide to do.
