HDMI Switch

Quick question about the HDMI switch in the Hurricane/Windsport. Will the HDMI switch in the main living area allow you to watch DVD's on all 3 televisions with one DVD player?

Yes Kev it should be wired to work that way. You just need to find which hdmi plug its wired to. Dino gave me a tip that works great. Find which plug it works on and put a label on the remote. Have labeled all three remote so I know which tv it belongs to and their hdmi. I bought another DVD player for the bedroom. Makes it easier to turn off without getting out of bed. I'm lazy!!

Dresser is just up the road from me. In fact the grandparents of my wife used to own the store and the gas station there.
My wife was born and raised the next town up the road, St. Croix Falls!
We could contemplate already where to meet for a beer.

The Villages are still pretty far to the north in Florida. I was eying up the area around Port Charlotte. A few of my friends own houses there already. In fact, the last five or so years I spend a few weeks of the winter in Port Cahrlotte.

We are headed for Austin, Texas in a couple of weeks for my grandson's graduation from the University of Texas. Windy is currently getting some warranty work done at Camping World:
1. Water Pump leaks
2. LED Strip in awning
3. HDMI Cable for the Outside and Bedroom TVs not working
4. Gen Start Switch in front console not working
Water Pump and Gen Start Switch have been repaired/replaced. Awaiting parts for the LED strip and the HDMI cables will be replace with a wireless system to those TVs instead of tearing up the MH to rewire those bad cables

I am also going to have the windshield replaced after the warranty work is completed. FMCA has a partnership with Guardian RV Glass and we are taking advantage of our membership with FMCA to have the windshield replaced. Only going to cost me $475.

Sounds great. You should take a tour package here just to check it out. If you like to have lots of activities, its the best around. 12 championship golf courses, 30+ executive golf courses and about every sporting activity you can think of.

In Florida, the windshield is covered by your insurance

Many states will have windshield coverage as part of comprehensive coverage - some may be subject to deductible...
Florida requires insurance companies provide $0 deductible glass coverage.
In Michigan, glass coverage was subject to comprehensive deductibles - I carried $0 deductible comprehensive there.
New York allowed for separate deductibles for glass compared to rest of comprehensive... allowing $0 glass and higher for anything else (last time I lived there - but its been a while...)

Finally installed my 50 amp receptacle to the side of my B&M. Temps are 20 degrees below normal. Near freezing. To be safe I fired up a couple electric heaters inside the coach. Saved on propane. Installed my EEZ TPMS. I was impressed with the extra tools and seals they sent with it. I liked the instruction manual. Very complete and written in real English.

I have always been concerned about that very same thing. Glad all is well with you now.

Some way that seems to be very common. I have to get the chip repair service out every time when I come back from a trip. I think that it is because the windshield is not only big, but also almost vertical, and the rocks don't slide off that easy when they hit it.

On our first trip with the Vegas we got nailed with a rock hitting the windshield. Fortunately it was not in my field of vision and had it repaired.
