RE: Afraid of "chemicals?"

Dihydrogen Monoxide - The Truth

RE: Pen fed credit union breech

I haven't received any notices of a PenFed breach since the one in 2011. I don't see any notice on their website or elsewhere online either. Could this have been a singular theft of your card information from elsewhere?

RE: Toilet: porcelain or plastic?

We've had an Aqua Magic Style Plus with a porcelain bowl since 2008 with zero problems in nearly full time use. I even moved it from our previous coach to our current one a couple of years ago because we like it so well. We much prefer the standard residential seat and the ease of cleaning the porcelain bowl. We would never go back to a plastic toilet...

RE: Beware Winegard Trav'ler if you want HD in Northeast

Northern ME is on the fringe of the 129 sat CONUS coverage, but the biggest problem may be the low 12 deg angle needed to hit it. It doesn't take much tree cover to block that. For contrast, the Dish 72.7 bird is at a 37 deg elevation in northern ME.

RE: Zoning that restricts RV use on your own land

In all but the worst winter weather, we continue to live in our RV on our full hookup site when we stay at our Adirondack cottage from time to time throughout the year. Invariably, every year a summer seasonal neighbor, usually a renter, complains to the town code enforcement officer about it, and the officer has to explain to them that it's perfectly legal in this part of the town. Sometimes they even bring him copies of their own home town ordinances to "prove" that he's wrong and we should be cited. He and I get a good chuckle out of it when we see each other at the local diner we both favor.

RE: How far do you post in advance?

It depends on when and where we're going. For the winter in Florida we start making reservations for the next winter before we leave during the current winter. As mentioned, for the best site selection at state and national controlled campgrounds, advance reservations are usually advised depending on the season and popularity of the location. The desired length of the stay is also a factor in deciding if reservations are preferred, with short stays of a few days to a week often readily available, especially in private parks. Week ends and holidays are also times when advanced planning is often a must.

RE: Asheville in October?

If you can get a site there, I suspect the Lake Powhatan Recreation Area campground would be a good base for leaf peeping. They have some full hookup sites and pretty reasonable rates. We'll be there in a few weeks to visit friends in Asheville.

RE: Millenicom Is Back - Finally!

I'm using a T-Mobile plan from another MVNO, and as said, if your device covers Band 12, the coverage has gotten quite good, although not up to Verizon standards yet. Our Verizon Jetpack 20GB plan is still our "go to" when we need the best coverage. Our T-Mobile speeds at our current location are not the fastest we've seen, but are certainly usable. http://www.speedtest.net/result/5573660800.png

RE: Winwguard Batwing Antenna

Sorry to disagree, but my sensar didn't come from the factory with a wall plate wiith a switch, many don't. I still had pretty fair reception. I did add a simple inline aftermarket booster for about $30, but the best addition was the wingman. In one rv park we pulled in 82 channels OTA. I have pulled them in from pretty close to 65 miles. No you don't have to have the thingamabob. Do you have a "BOMB" (Box Of Many Buttons) that's used to select the source and destination for your various TV related devices? If so, that also powers the batwing amplifier. There is, or was anyway, a cheaper model of the batwing without an amplifier, but if your receiving stations from 65 miles out, it's not likely you have one of them.

RE: East Coast travel in February

We typically leave upstate NY in early January with our coach loaded just as it is any other time. The fresh tank is full when we leave and the waste tanks are empty. We do keep a small 700 watt electric heater with a thermostat in the wet bay for use during over night stops when the temps are forecast down into the mid 20's or lower. We travel down I88 to I81, stopping for the first night at the year round Jonestown, PA KOA. Since we're usually still living in our coach when it's time head south after spending the holidays with our kids, de-winterizing isn't an issue for us, but in past years when we did winterize, we turned on the motorhome heat st at about 50 degF a couple of days before we left, turned on the fridge, and started loading clothes, non-perishable food, etc. The day before leaving, we loaded up the fridge and freezer with pre-cooled, pre-frozen items and filled the fresh water tank. On departure day, we turned up the heat to 70 degF, loaded any last minute items, unhooked the shorepower, made sure the house was prepped and locked, and headed out. These days, it's much easier and no different than leaving the cottage at any other time of the year. Lock the doors, hook up the toad, and roll out.

RE: Satellite tv

Only downside is that with the Dish portables you can't use any receivers but the 211 I believe. I would like to be able to pause and stop or record when not there. I know you can get an external hard drive to record but it's live recording, not preset. With an external hard drive attached to your 211 and activated with Dish, you have full single tuner DVR capabilities including pause, stop, preset timing and channels, etc. If your receiver has the optiional OTA adapter (211z, Wally) or the built-in OTA (211k), then you can also record OTA programming at the same time as sat recording, or watch one while recording the other. You can even watch a recorded program while recording new programming with the sat and OTA tuners.

RE: Dish customer question

Our Dish service for both our RV and our upstate NY cottage are month-to-month pay-as-you-go. We change locals as often as daily, and on at least one occasion, changed it twice in one day with no hassles from Dish. We use the chat service and pre-written script that Bill mentioned, and the change nearly always goes quite smoothly. Once in a great while the CSR fails to flag our program guide for the update, but a second 1-2 minute chat has always fixed that. They've also changed our billing address on occasion along with our service address, but that's also easily fixed online with our MyDish.com account.

RE: New Email Client

The only reason I let gmail handle my domain email is spam filtering- hundreds daily from an address that has been public for 16 years now- google handles it quite well so far. Chris, I too have a heavily spammed long used address that's connected to several websites I maintain. I have that address forwarded to a separate Gmail account for their spam filtering, and then forwarded from there to another non-Gmail account. That gives me the benefit of Gmail's spam filtering along with the convenience of handling all my email in one client.

RE: Jeep toad catches fire on interstate 15 in the Cajon pass

I think asking TPMS manufacturers about adding fire sensor would not be out of line? The better TPMS's already have temperature sensing and alarm capability. If my TST monitor indicates an over temperature alarm on a given wheel, I'm for darn sure going to pull over ASAP and check it out. It's only happened once so far, for a sticking brake caliper on a previous toad, but I was happy to get the warning and be able to fix the problem before any damage was done.

RE: T mobile

I agree, T-Mobile's coverage has improved pretty impressively over the past year or so. For the best 4G/LTE coverage though, you do need a device that uses the 700Mhz Band 12 frequencies. That's what T-M has mostly been building out rapidly. At our Adirondack cottage, we couldn't even get a sniff of a T-M signal a year ago, but now we're getting a usable T-M 4G/LTE Band 12 signal there even without our powerful MaxAmp booster turned on. Verizon is still the coverage king of course, but I think T-M is getting close to giving AT&T a run for it, and has already passed them in some categories.

RE: New Email Client

If you use IMAP instead of POP for your email protocol, your mail is always synchronized no matter which clients you use. If I read a new message on my PC with Thunderbird and then reply to it, when I open K9 on my smartphone later on, both the new message and my reply are both there.

RE: Are we too late for escaping the winter

In the winter in Florida we usually stay at various state and federal parks anywhere from a few days to two weeks at each one, plus a single 4-5 week long stay at our RV club owned park in central Florida. We make our reservations up to 11 months ahead of time for the best site selection, but there are often short stays available even with no reservations.
