RE: Unlimited 3g verizon mifi help

I switched my wifes phone to the new unlimited plan. My Jetpack died. When I turn it on all I get is Mifi on the screen. I may have my other Jetpack flashed when we return from Mexico next month.

RE: Need help diagnosing roof A/C

Oil at the solder joints is not good. When the unit is running, touch the hi side copper tube leaving the compressor. It should be hot.

RE: Unlimited 3g verizon mifi help

1492: You are correct. Seller got back to me right away with the reason. I thought I did it correctly, but evidently not. Seller said he asked me several times for number, but I never got any message/email. I was able to add to my account thru the 888 number, but will try the seller again later. Unit is still working.

RE: Just returned from Puerto Penasco

Thanks for the update. We are heading there on 21 Feb for 2 weeks, and we have a SurgeGuard installed. I am not sure I would want to bypass it. May just bring my Honda 2000 with me.

RE: Unlimited 3g verizon mifi help

After a few days of not getting the payment option, it reappeared. I paid $5 on 28 Jan and my exp date changed from 29 Jan to 6 Apr. I had made additional $5 payments previously because my exp date didn't change. I am still befuddled by their system, but unit is still working. 1492: Before my payment option returned on the phone, I tried your ebay card option. They charged my card, but yesterday they cancelled my order. Am waiting a reply from seller. Just curious.

RE: Unlimited 3g verizon mifi help

If you have a 4620l you should be able to verify device phone number and admin password thru the screen menu. Also, the password may be inside battery campartment.

RE: Unlimited 3g verizon mifi help

Yes, back in Mar. It worked great for about 5 months, then stopped. Called the Verizon number and was informed not a valid number. I think it was not loaded with the total free months. Sent it back for reflash, and this time I checked shortly after I turned it on. An expire date of Jan 15, 2017 turned out to be 8 Oct, 2016. I keep on top of it now, and so far, so good.

RE: Unlimited 3g verizon mifi help

I call 888-294-6804. After entering my Jetpack phone number, I use option to pay by credit card. They will first say minimum $15 payment, but offer option for other amount. Using this option, I pay $5. Evidently their system takes time to update, and I am thinking I will be able to buy multiple months for $15, due to my recent experience. I had an expiration date of 30 Oct. I paid $5 on 28 Oct. Called back next day and still had expiration date of 30 Oct. So I thought maybe I did need to make $15 payment. So I made two more $5 payments. I called back on 1 Nov and had expiration date of 30 Nov. Thought ok, $10 to keep active was still ok. On 28 Nov I made $5 payment. Today I called and now have an expiration date of 7 Mar 2017, and a balance of $5. I am not real happy about this payment process, but worth putting up with for the unlimited 3G data. Hope it lasts for awhile.

RE: Unlimited 3g verizon mifi help

I have been renewing mine using my credit card. They do add 43 cents, I'm assuming tax etc.

RE: Unlimited 3g verizon mifi help

Well, I left my hotspot on returning to Campbellsville and it went back to the status before, just cycles thru connecting, 3g service, disconnecting. I believe it is due to being in an extended network area, worked great in Louisville.

RE: Unlimited 3g verizon mifi help

My first unit from Travis (Mar) quit working before end of 6 month. Verison said number no longer valid. Sent it back in for reflash (Jul). Worked great in New Orleans, would not work when we got to Campbellsville, KY (Aug). Verizon said number still valid, so I have been adding the $5 monthly. We are now visiting Louisville for 2 nites and unit working great. Not sure if due to towers or not (in Campbellsville wifes Verizon phone says extended network), will see if it works in Campbellsville when we return tomorrow. I believe my units were not sent out preloaded with 6 months, the first one I assumed and did not check on, second one I checked and loaded before expired. Only time will tell. I feel that even with cost of second reflash I am far ahead with data used vs my Verizon 4G Hotspot which I have disconnected.

RE: unlimited data plans

My Novatel 4620L had also been working well since March. I had some problem connecting in Canon City, CO last month, but forcing the unit into EVDO only helped. However, on 1 Aug it quit connecting. I'm back in New Orleans, it was working ok, then quit connecting. I took it into town for stronger signal, but no go. I thought maybe my 6 months was up, although that was suppose to happen on 1 Sep. So I tried to add $5, when I called was notified that number no longer valid. Was told this happens occasionally. I am having it reflashed for another 6 months and will see how it goes. I can say the low monthly cost so far has been worth it.

RE: How to remove water stains

I've used a product called Insta-gone. Stain-remover.net I believe I saw it at Camping World my last visit.

RE: ATWOOD Water heater - works on electric, not gas

The thermal fuse does not reset, and opens on high heat.

RE: Going "cheap" - a new "rant" - just wondering "why?"

I've read all 8 pages, interesting, and decided I don't care. I do what I do, you do what you do. Isn't that what life is all about.

RE: Insurance

We use Dakota Post, SD for our physical address. SD is cool with this. We vote with this address, our passports are with this address. There are also opportunities to use facilities in TX and FL to have a domicile without living there. We are on traditional Medicare, and Tricare For Life, so medical insurance has not been an issues with SD, but pre-medicare folks have challenges.

RE: Stay in Play SMI

I have a vintage 2005 Stay N Play, wireless. Have 40K on my current coach, no problems. Mine is wired to my brake switch, as on my previous gas coach. I haven't noticed my system being activated when exhaust brake kicks in. I have over 110,000 miles on my unit, and never had a problem with it. I like the ability to activate toad brakes manually, and the system also has a latch mode, which takes the inertia component out of the equation, activating the toad brakes whenever I use coach brakes.

RE: Has anyone put a switch on a refrigerator defrost heater?

My Maytag has a Vacation Mode, which decreases the defrost cycles. I use this when we dry camp overnight.

RE: Winnebago Products windsheild cracking

When I visited RV Glass Solutions in Phoenix last year the tech told me a lot of windshields are cracked because owners don't relieve stress off the front suspension before they level. He said many back their coaches in with the front wheels turned at a large angle. He recommended straightning out the wheels then moving slightly forward to take all the stress off the front end before leveling. I'm on my third windshield, but all from the rock throwers on the highway. Some brands are also suceptable to having their windshield pop out. These 1 piece windshields are not in-expensive.
