RE: New Winnebago web site - parts

There is even a store front on Amazon. Winnebago Outdoor. Not sure if the store front is a driect link back to Winnebago but who ever it is they have a lot of stuff for sale. Contract telephone number area code is central Iowa.it's not, but looks easier to find things, and way faster.

RE: TV antenna amplifier replacement

I replaced my old antenna with a King HD TV antenna, but could not get it to work. After troubleshooting it, I found that the amplifier was dead. What should I replace it with? I was thinking of the Winegard Sensar Pro. Is that a good choice?The amplifier is in the antenna itself; both the Batwing and the Jack, and neither will work without it (meaning if I'm reading this correct, the Batwing is likely still good). As it sounds you've discovered that the wall plate is simply a DC power inserter into the coax. IF the coil on the wall plate is burned up, it can be replaced, OR you can use the Sensar Pro which is an excellent device and solves several other problems with RF distribution and locating ATSC stations.

RE: Update 8.1.2

Wish I could run it on my 4S but the power users say nah... Off to the Apple Store I've been running it on my iPhone 4S with no issues whatsoever. We have it on a 4S as well with no issues.Maybe I'll give it a shot, but I dont think that there is an IOs7 backout any longer. They (Mac World) were citing speed issues, and I already have noticable slowdowns with the IOS 8 apps, so this article scared me off.

RE: facetime issues

let me preface i have android NOT iphone but cellular is NOT wifi yes its wireless but its not wifi which is wireless fidelity networking my understanding is that "facetime" is a wifi only app, as it is video "voip", data networking not a regular phone call this would mean a WiFi connection for the internet i'm sure someone else will correct me , If im wrong I believe you are correct. At least with my older iphone, it has to be wi-fi. you can not use the data on your data plan to do facetime. I thought with the newer phones you can, but maybe not. And as mentioned, using the internet on the phone is not necessarily wi-fi.it's carrier dependent

RE: facetime issues

A hotspot creates a WIFi access point from the phone. What that message is saying is that the phone is not connected to external WiFi, meaning all you have is Verizon data. ATT will do FaceTime on cellular, but maybe not Verizon..

RE: Slab City, California Observations

Niland isn't exactly a bustling metropolis. It's a has-been poverty level arguably farm town whos businesses that are left surely need the revenue. Unless they can survive from the weekend sand buggy crowd, those 500-2000+ or so people out there still represent traffic at the markets, etc. Wouldn't be surprising if there are more folks at the Slabs than the entire population of Niland itself. Yeah they don't pay property taxes, but they certainly make a financial impact on the local businesses. Forcing them out may not be a wise idea economically. It they had money they wouldn't be living on a concrete slab with no water/electricity/sewers in the middle of nowhere........what's that got to do with the local economy? They still need to eat and buy gas/ LP.

RE: Strange? slide went out by itself.

If that slide is hydraulic I suspect you could seriously break something with any kind of "lock bar" device. If it wants to come out, there is very little that's going to stop a hydraulic piston.

RE: autoformer

The Magnum obviously isn't a 110VAC regulator, and like the A/C is going to work harder when faced with low input. So... I'd buy a real whole house Autoformer, do it right and protect the toys.

RE: iPad mini 2 with 16gb vs 32 - Update

Will the lightning to USB adapter cable let you move any type of file or just music, videos or pictures?Dunno exactly what I can and can't do. I move the SD off the camera in the helicopter straight into the iPad in the field, and have moved MP3 too. after that I haven't played much with it.

RE: Wrightwood, CA - Driving condition

Angeles Crest Highway is closed about half way to Wrightwood from the 210. Go up the Cajon Pass to the Wrightwood turnoff.Thats not a road I would recommend for an RV of any size with the crazy commuters making the Palmdale run during the week, and the rice rocket bikers on the weekends.

RE: iPad mini 2 with 16gb vs 32 - Update

No you don't.. I sync pix, contacts, instant messages and all the media with that, and even downloaded apps via iCloud. Its so seamless that I'm getting delinquent on syncing through iTunes. The ONLY thing I HAVE to go back to the Mac for is my encrypted password data backup. After that all i need to do is be in the LAN of iTunes and it will sync via WiFi in the background (guess i should turn that back on). BTW- iPad, iPhone, etc. can easily be downloaded to and from an SD card with their Lightening to SD adapter.

RE: iPad mini 2 with 16gb vs 32 - Update

Geeeez, here comes the rebadged Mac vs. Windoz debate.... OP.. Seriously think about the 32GB iPad. I have a 128 and use it p, but I bought DW a 16GB mini figuring she would NEVER get close to that cap.... That was until grand kids and Disney apps that run 500m> 1G each. It doesn't take long..

RE: Wrightwood, CA - Driving condition

You shouldn't have any issues at all getting up there, but possibly parking issues depending on the ski crowd.

RE: This is gonna get moved

Hi narcodog, If you have a smart phone try using the gps mapping feature on it. no smart phone Probably only works where there is a cell signal. A GPS will work pretty much anywhere. Im happy with the Garmin products. Costco is a good bargin source, and sell the latest models. Get one with free lifetime map updates. I find the traffic feature useless and turn it off. You can get a 6 inch screen for around 200 and a 5 inch around 125 with lifetime maps. Many of the cell phone products (example Navigon) do not need a cell connectionNAVIGON is an excellent Smartphone GPS, but it's usefulness ends on the streets True but if you watch the video you will see the power of the Delorme product... Adding via's, Put in your comfortable miles to travel... and there will be markers on the map/route where to get gas.... And how far you want to travel each day.... there will be markers.... So when you travel where there is no towns for a long ways you can say, well I best get gas early.... You can tell it to avoid freeways etc.... any kind of roads you want.... Avoid toll roads.... Jim

RE: Quartzsite - High Fuel Prices !

My friend in Phoenix told me today that Regular Gas there was $1.99. It's $2.19 here in Virginia... Roy KenWhere, Joe's gas and horse feed? Ask him to prove it. I filled up with Regular at Chevron in PHX this afternoon for $2.29. I've spent the last 3 weeks between Phoenix and Tucson daily and there is nothing close to $1.99 at any brand station anywhere. Really? What kind of ignorant statement is that? I'm sure his friend calls all of his buddies just to lie about gas prices. According to www.arizonaGasprices.com there are now 10 stations in the Phoenix area that are at $1.99 per gallon. Your buying Chevron which is usually the most expensive statewide. And all you are seeing are stations next to the interstate. How about doing some homework before you accuse someone of lying next time?Like I said.. BRAND station.

RE: This is gonna get moved

Advanced Search 'GPS' in heading in technology. For such a general question you'll be reading all day. Why not post in Technology in the first place? Because most folks that post there don't boondock is the main reason.you're kidding right? 50% of the discussion there is about solar, longevity of various battery combinations, boondock charging, all from real boondockers. And those are often the longest threads. I'll be watching this too since most GPS devices have become so dumbed down and feature laden with things that "boondockers" don't really need they are actually hard to use in a basic mode.

RE: Antelope Canyon?

Hopefully the mod will resize the pic.. :) IIRC about the only place you can go in Antelope Cyn. Is to the parking lot. We could have gone in without a guide, but the history talk is worth it.
