RE: Simple Home Monitor Camera

http://www.foscam.com/video_view.aspx?id=2 Man, I watched this video and it looked pretty dang complicated to set the Foscam up.

Tank Status Toggle Switches

Our old Lance has a switch panel on the stove vent hood. It has switches for tank status, water pump, gen, etc. I've had to replace a couple of those switches over the years in that panel. I had to replace the momentary tank status switch last week and I found them on Amazon (if anyone needs one). #23 mini toggle switches

RE: Lance Propane Tank Recertification

Finally found someone to recertify them. Cental Gas in Gurley, Alabama for $5 each. Now, as a former member of Pi Tau Sigma, let the pressure vessel debate resume. :) :) :)

RE: Lance Propane Tank Recertification

Heritage Propane re-certified my Lance tank a couple years ago. They are located on the frontage on the north side of I565 just west of Research Park Blvd. in Huntsville. That's who I went to yesterday. They are moving and basically out of business for two months.

RE: Lance Propane Tank Recertification

The first time I was ever turned down to fill the original propane tanks was at Henrys Lake, Idaho. It was when they started requiring the OPD valves. I guess that was about 2001 or so. Yeh, Oregon natives are pretty laid back, unless you find yourself working there and driving a rental car with California plates. Then they try to run you off the road and kill you; but that is another story. :) :) :)

RE: Lance Propane Tank Recertification

Dang, finally found a propane dealer who recertifies tanks. Drove over to his business and half his building was torn down. Apparently he is moving a 1/4 miles down the road and is out of the tank certifying business for a couple of months. If it weren't for bad luck, I'd have no luck at all............. I'm starting to seriously consider going down to the local Chinese Tool Store and buy me a $29 set lettered metal punches and deal with this situation the same way I got my 1973 Bultaco Alpina spark arrestor certified by the "US Forrestry Servise".

RE: Lance Propane Tank Recertification

Thanks all for the helpful comments. Sounds like I just need to take them down to the local major propane supplier and let them take a look at them and get a recertification sticker. Thanks again for the help, Brad

Lance Propane Tank Recertification

I guess this 1996 Lance camper has lasted way too long because I now need to get my REPLACEMENT propane tanks recertified before I can get them refilled. The original tanks had the old valves and I had to get new tanks many years ago. Now those tanks are "old" tanks that nobody will fill. Anyone had their 20# horizontal Lance tanks recertified? What is the process for that? I'm concerned that if they have to disassemble the tank, they are a lot more likely to screw something up than fix something that has been working perfectly for 10 or 12 years. I just love big daddy government watching over us and keeping us all safe from disaster and such; pretty soon tooth brushes will come with an arrow and direction to insert this end into mouth. Thanks for any help, Brad

RE: Simple Home Monitor Camera

They only stream when being watched (at least the Foscam's). If you set it for motion alarm, it takes a series of 5 .jpegs of the event and emails it to you. So in this case it doesn't matter the speed. It'll get there when it gets there. Thanks, that is good to know. I was reading a review on Amazon of one of them (not Foscam) and it streamed 1080 HD continuously. The guy said he used 8 times as much upload the first month he had it as he normally did. Seems like he said 250GB vs 30GB, or something like that. I'm definitely going to look into the Foscams. All I need to see is the inside of my house, a big dial thermometer and if the $20 I left on the kitchen table is still there. :) Dropcam was bought up by another company and the name was dropped.

RE: Simple Home Monitor Camera

OK, I've read up on some of the suggestions and I'm thinking I will have a problem with my slow internet connection. It is generally below 1M/s; probably about .7M/s. Those cameras seem to be just what I need, but they seem to be sending a lot of data down the wire.

RE: Simple Home Monitor Camera

If you want simple........look at Dropcam........ ...... I will look at those. I've hear people talk about "Drop Cams", but I did not know what they were talking about. Thanks, Brad

Simple Home Monitor Camera

http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00XN21LX2?psc=1 Anyone use something like this to monitor their home while they are away? I'm not sure I know how it works. I want something simple. Would I have to leave my computer on for this to work? Or does just the wifi need to be on? If the power goes off and comes back on, will something like this come back up on line or does it have to be manually reset? Thanks for any help, Brad

RE: What brand of shocks have worked well for you?

You'll get a lot of answer, but for me, I have Rancho 9000's, and I like very much the fact I can adjust the valving for fully loaded vs. empty. Ditto; I've had them on all 3 camper hauling trucks we have owned. They are a huge improvement on an SRW truck hauling a truck camper. Brad

RE: $48,447

Went by and looked at that Lance 995. Very nice camper. It had some options that I did not want, so the list price would come down quite a bit. Just the generator, solar and fancy rear bumper are about $7k. Brad

RE: $48,447

Watch out I'm sure the goderator will consider this a Troll post!!! Wayne knows Brad don't troll. I'm going to look at that 995 at Ketelsen's this afternoon (currently working at the new VA Hospital going up in Aurora). Then I'm going to email Lance to see if they can put a dog window in it. Can't buy a new camper without DD's approval. We paid $15,000 for our new 9' 10" Lance in 1996. Brad
