RE: Smart Phone Remote App

why not just google search for the correct remote? I have been all over the internet... I don't want to spend any money and if i do find anything I won't have in time for our first trip which is Thursday.Why would you think the app is free? Most of the TV apps you see are for WiFi enabled TV's, AND... At least the iPhone doesn't even have an IR emitter

RE: Light Switch with Dimmer Question

If you want a dimmer with a real switch on it, you may have to build it yourself. The dimmers I've tested draw between 16-20ma Off. Not allot, but enough long term to be a boondocking issue

RE: Migration north

I have been traveling between Phoenix and Tucson on business for the last two weeks, often twice a day. The ratio of Northbound vs. South is well over 20:1. And this as the Midwest is still getting hammered

RE: Just wondering - RV.net - the Spam?

IE has been the gold standard for picking up virus's for years. I would never ever ever ever use IE to poke at thise links regardless of how "protected" microsoft claims they are. Rarely i will look at one on the iphone since its way harder to break than a PC or Mac I've never had a virus/malware/browser hijacker/Trojan/etc in all my years of computing (1984 - today) and I use IE. Of course I do due diligence when it comes to clicking on links on the internet. I also have a great AV program, etc. I wasn't trying to push IE as a browser, but just mentioned it as a course of method. Think again when you say your iPhone is so "safe". I could access it within a minute, standing in line with you at the supermarket :BIE- then you are the very rare exception. Its a well known fact that IE has been vunerable for many years. Why do you think the anti virus companies have done so well and microsoft has pushed zero day fixes since the beginning? IPhone- is that a challenge? Ill take you up on it cuz I'm not buying you can hack it at all, sorry.. Since we're so close ill be happy to meet half way and you can try.

RE: Just wondering - RV.net - the Spam?

And you folks have been a great help but PLEASE, we only need one notify per thread. That will make it easier for us because we have to check each notify out, even if it is a duplicate. Adminunless the person that notified you says that on the spam thread (and i don't), how is anyone going to know how many notifications you get?

RE: San Diego to Santa Barbara - Best way thru/around LA

It was no fluke.. But at the same time being a traveler, it amazes me the traffic that other medium to large cities have that are as bad and often worse than a "normal" LA traffic day. But for some reason the gold standard in traffic jams seems to be LA, probably because its gone on so long. But others have caught up and often surpassed us.

RE: An app for Android?

The answer is No, there are no forum specific apps for this forum. But many, including me simply use a browser

RE: AM Signal Booster?

One of the other things that have not been addressed is AM interference. If you have an inverter, that can destroy AM reception. I only have a convertor. I know a few times listening to AM I have pulled the plug to the MH so the a/c coming in doesn't bother. Also if the vehicle antenna is short that will equal bad reception. In the past I have seen antennas work ok on FM but won't work worth a darn on AM. Usually a bad ground or an issue with the center wire of the antenna,then there is the new little elecrtic BMW that generates so much trash that they eliminated the AM radio alltogether. Hellofa way to fix a known problem..

RE: Salton Sea

One thing everyone seems to miss in the southern area is the Mud Pots just outside of Niland. It almost takes a GPS to find them, but they are a pretty rare find.

RE: Best TV antenna

You also have to move the antenna real slow with digital. One "advantage" of the Jack antenna is that it offers a wider angle of acceptance, meaning you don't have to be quite so careful when turning it. That however comes at the price of maximum sensitivity, which IIRC SCVJeff's tests demonstrated isn't as good on average as the Sensar IV. FWIW, I've owned both and have returned to the Sensar IV powered by a SensarPro.Yep..And as I’ve said in the past, anyone that has a Jack that performs better that a Batwing, has a broken Batwing. And unfortunately there are more than just a few of those

RE: Best TV antenna

It's entirely possible that if you don't have a Wingman attachment that it won't improve your situation, but then again it might. With digital all it takes is a tad more gain to get over the hump, but it's not going to fix what isn't there.

RE: San Diego to Santa Barbara - Best way thru/around LA

Stick with the above routes.. As far as fuel, I can't help. Personally I'd wait till you get north of LA if possible. There are diesel stations with lots of access off the 5 in Valencia, and again on the west side of the 126. I'm sure there is something down south, but a 5er that long isn't gonns be fun

RE: Your favorite shower head?

I ran a test between the Meridian fancy shower head and the Oxygenics when I installed it. Is was a fill the bucket to 1gal vs. time test. I don't remember the numbers now, but with both shower heads on full, the Oxygenics uses the same volume against the clock. The huge difference is that you can back off the Oxygenics to 50% with the valve and it still produces an excellent spray where the Meridian OEM head turns pretty wimpy. It's roughly 40-50 less water for a perfectly usable spray.

RE: AM Signal Booster?

The little ferrite bar is what couples to the radio, usually another ferrite bar antenna in the radio, the bar stick is the antenna into the preselector, and back out to the stick coupler. IF you can get to the rear of the radio and buy or build the proper adapters you might be able to get it to work, but it's not really built for mobile service. These things are really cool in the right service. It's amazing how much AM cr@p it can tune out and listen through.

RE: AM Signal Booster?

Try one of these Antenna Boosters from CCrane radio. I use mine all the time when out and about in the boondocks to pull in late night stations.not built for a mobile radio :( Huh? The antenna was designed to work with everything from portable radios to home stereos with wire antenna terminals. The Twin Coil's wireless ferrite stick works on radios that don't have antenna connectors.the OP is asking about a car radio. How are you going to mount a ferrite bar so it doesnt get blown off or stolen,?
