Just found this website about QAM, lists specific brands and their compatibility. Thought it might be helpful to anyone wanting to buy new tv's for their coaches.

TV Compatibility Reference Guide | Information Technology | Drexel University

P.S. Seiki is NOT compatible!!! Also be careful about store brands like Insignia from Best Buy.

Just ordered a set of SnapPads and a Progressive Industries EMS-PT50X. Plan on doing a mod to the grill soon.

Good choices! Squirt a little soapy water on the SnapPads and they'll go on easier.

My latest mini project. Myra and I both complained about not having a trash can up front. I used a 1 1/2" pvc cap, filled it with grout for weight (left over from tiling bedroom shower) after putting a plastic straw in the middle to make room for the screw. I had to file a taper on the bottom edge of the cap to get it to fit all the way in the table mount hole. NOTE: drill hole and put a screw part way in the cap before testing the fit, don't ask why, just do it!!!

I mounted the cap to the bottom of trash can, secured with a fender washer and screw. I ended up having to glue some foam to the bottom of the can to make it stable, there was about 1/4" gap.

Lifts out easily but I think it will stay in place well due to the weight in the cap.

I have found that if your picture size is too big it will be displayed sideways

To avoir the sideways picture, you have to open the file with Paint or similar program and just SAVE it again. This will correct the sideways effect.

Thank you for taking the time to help, I truly do appreciate it!! Only problem is I pretty much do everything on my iPad.

I originally thought it had something to do with holding my phone in landscape or portrait, does seem to make any difference, so photos just post that way and I never know until I post.

Now that I'm retired and have time I'm starting to get some of my projects done. Figured I'd do one or two projects a day in the morning while it's still cool outside. This morning I installed the grill piece Thor sent last fall. The piece is kinda flimsy so I cut and zip tied it to the front of the stock grill and reinstalled, took a while but I think it looks better and will provide better rock protection.

Not really a project but I got tired of water draining in the bay when I disconnected the black tank rinser. I was at Lowe's and picked up this short extension and quick disconnect. Should take care of the problem.

Is the grill piece to eliminate the whistle? It looks like the same grill I have. I have the whistle and was going to look for something at Home Depot to zip tie to the grill.

Here is my grill. Grr Dave...sideways bitten too!!

SnapPads came in today. I installed the two rear ones. I did not do the fronts as if you glampers remember, my right front jack leaks a little and will go back to the dealer later in the Autumn. I don't know how hard they are to remove and my understanding is Lippert will not repair jacks, only replace. I'm going to ask the SP rep at IRV2 if they can be removed fairly easily. If so, I may put the fronts on. Though I don't need to hear crapola from Lippert saying the SP caused the leak.

Also bought a Serta soothing gel 3" memory foam king topper. Felt like a cloud.
