RE: Internet Speed

probably need a newer router.
Johno02 11/16/17 05:50pm Technology Corner

As before, seems like a lot of folks have a lot more money than common sense. Whatever seems to be the current fad on media is the thing that they have to have. It will pass. Another thing that we forget, is that to lots of young folks that have never been out of the big cities, and many have been living with several in one or two VERY expensive rooms in the big packed cities, an tiny house with a couple off trees around it may very well seem to be a castle to them.. It is hard to some of us that live where they are only a few people per acre (in our case, only ONE per acre) to understand their type of life.

RE: 30 amp shore power cord

A good rule is to always tag the wires with masking tape tags with notes before disconnecting anything.

RE: Questions about MiFi(hot spots)

I also had no idea about the amount of data we were using, so I bought a verizon prepaid MIFI box, and a 10GB prepaid plan. They I just watched the account to see what were were using. Turns out that the 10 GB two-month plan was just about right. We used almost all of it in the two months were were out on the road, as we approached the upper limit, we just started being more aware of how much we were using, and cut back just a bit to make it last. Returned home with less than 30 MB unused! Turned MIFI box off, then six months later bought another 10GB and went back on the road.

RE: traveling with dogs and cats in a MH.

Our dogs have always considered their crate as their private place, so when we travelled with them, their crates were back on the bed, and they always rode in them. Crates were open so they could come and go as they liked, but they both always wanted their crates to ride in.

RE: Williamsburg and D.C. Campground recommendations

Only problem with Anvil are the trains that come through on the edge of the campground. Not really loud, but you know when they come through. Weekday commuter trains are especially often and fast moving.

RE: Hocking Hills SP to Fairy Stone SP

Going down 58, we usually detach the toad and send DW in front, talking to each other via speaker on cell phone. That way, she warns me of traffic approaching into the switchbacks. Easy places at the bottom to stor and reattach the toad.

RE: Hocking Hills SP to Fairy Stone SP

There was a nice campground up at Meadows of Dan as you take 58 across the mountain. As you start down the mountain on 58, it is a really good chance to check your taillights in your mirrors as you traverse some of the curves. All the rest of 58 if pretty good.

RE: heat in the lower storage bay

The post might have been mine. I thought about one of the small under-desk heaters that were low-wattage, and yes, one would probably be better than the light if you need more heat. I used a clamp-on lampholder from Walmart, with a 75-watt bulb, clamped in such a manner to make sure it was well clear of any objects in the bin. Hardest part was finding a 75-watt incandesent bulb. they have all been replaced with LEDs.

RE: First trip down Trace to Natchez

Have just come down the trace in out MH this week. In a bigger RV, take it easy through and right below Tupelo, MS. There has been some road deteriation recently, and the right edge of the road has a few pretty bad cracks and dips. OK in a car, but a wider RV they are a bit harder to avoid. Drive is OK, just be watchful.

RE: First trip down Trace to Natchez

YES! Stop at the Mount Locust Visitor Center, at mile 15.5 and visit with us. We are the old ones working there as volunteers. If you meed the young cute ones, that isn't us.

RE: Running the gererator while driving

We do it occasionally, especially if traveling in very hot weather. Sometimes the dash air is just not enough to keep it comfortable. Also, then when we stop for the evening, the air is already running while we are getting parked and set up, until we get shore power connected.

RE: Refir Ammonia Leak

Yellow stuff means its dead. Just like humans, lots of red stuff is NOT good.

RE: High Anxiety

We just don't worry too much. Used to work to make sure we had everything we could ever possibly need, then unloading everything when we got back, most of which had never been touched. Now we load the essentials, especially our medicines, a few staples in the fridge and pantry, and bath. Minimum necessary clothing. Our findings after many years is that we are never very far from a Walmart, it it turns out we need something, just go get it.

RE: Getting the OTA tv working again

With my Sensar IV antenna,, and the Sensar pro wallplate, 60+ miles over flat country is no problem.

RE: White bean chili

Too many good answers to post here. So go to GOOGLE, search "white bean chili" and you will get all kinds of ways. Let us all know what she decides to use!

RE: Slideouts suddenly not working

Thanks for the follow-up. It may help someone else that encounters the same type problem. So many get their problems, and never let us know what they did to fix it, or even want the actual problems was. Thanks.

RE: Upgrade from gas to DP

Depends on how much loose change you have to spend. Take a trip in a greyhound bus and feel how it handles if you want a better idea.

RE: Winter camping

Just keep an eye on it. If the temps inside get too cold, the thermostat will sense it, and let the temp in the freezer compartment go up. If it is colder in the rig than about 35 degrees, it my happen.
