RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

Hi folks. I don't understand what your timeout problem is, but this works for me using my laptop and Chrome: Enter in the Address bar. This brings up the ATT sign in page. Log in to your account. This brings up the Home page. Select "Settings" from the menu in the upper left corner. On the Settings page select "Advanced" (NOT "Advanced Settings") at the top of the page. On the next page, under "Advanced", select "Power Save." A small bar will appear with your current Power Save setting. Click on the bar to open a menu of choices. Click on "No Time Out", then "Apply." Note: My software version is 1.0.1 The problem is that not all Mobleys come with version 1.0.1 installed, and when the unit updates, sometimes some browsers do not display the new "No Time Out" choice. I suspect it may be a browser cache issue, but I haven't verified that since I didn't have the problem with my Mobley.

RE: AT&T no phone directory nor operators

We've had good luck using 1-800-FREE411 (1-800-373-3411) for both residential and business numbers. You'll hear a brief ad before and after your request, but we've found it handy when Internet service is not available or convenient to use at the time.

RE: Is your favorite OTA TV Station going away ?

Yep, when I switched from cable to Dish for TV at our Adirondack cottage, I wanted to add an OTA antenna for the locals when we're on the road changing service addresses. I couldn't find a suitable LP antenna that included low VHF coverage for the relatively short 40 mile LOS distance. Since the only area low VHF station is on RF channel 6, I modified an FM band dipole to add the needed elements.

RE: Trip planning mistake

Give them each age appropriate books to read. Might work better if they're on e-readers these days. As a kid growing up camping, I was never bored even on rainy days since I always had a book I could get lost in. Sunny days were for exploring, swimming, etc. Now I'm 74 and it still works for me...

RE: A&E Awning adjustment help needed

Now that you have it moved, find a small flat head screw that screws tightly into the groove through the material to keep it in place. You only need it at one end, and there should be one in both the track at the top and the roller.

RE: Eliminating the ubiqutous ch751 bay locks

The only "key" needed to open any RV bin or door is a large screw drive or tire iron. If a criminal wants in, he'll get in...

RE: To Tote a Tote or not to Tote

We normally can go a full week without dumping, but for those situations where it doesn't work out, we carry a small 6-gallon Tote-n-Stor and a 7-gallon repurposed water jug. The Tote-n-Stor is normally used for black and/or grey waste, and the ex-water jug only for grey waste. One or two "dump runs" is usually enough to get us to our destination date. The two containers easily fit in one storage bin along with our waste hoses and fittings. If it was more of a problem for us, we would have a larger capacity tank of course, but this setup has worked well for us so far with minimal inconvenience.

RE: Extreme Cold+Propane Tanks: Advice Needed!

Our LP furnace heated Adirondack cottage has kept us warm at -20? with no issues. And our LP fired coach furnace has kept us warm at -4? also with no issues. At the temps you're talking about, it should not be a problem. Keep in mind there are plenty of folks heating with LP in the northern states where even colder temps are pretty routine in the winter.

Here's a surface mount dual USB port that could easily be installed next to a light fixture. http://i.imgur.com/AO4ZlPQl.jpg width=350 Single Surface Mounted Dual USB Port

Dutch_12078 04/27/17 11:21am General RVing Issues

I questioned the paralegal last week at the firm that sued. Here is her response: "We were waiting for the judge to rule on one final issue which she finally did last week. We are currently working on the proposed final judgment and then there will probably be some more briefing on that and then hopefully we will be done, barring any more hold ups with an appeal. I am hopeful that checks will issue in the next couple of months pursuant to the settlement agreement. I believe that there will be 4 annual installments." 4 annual installments? Unbelievable. Even when you win in a class action lawsuit, you still lose. Would you rather the company filed for bankruptcy and the plaintiffs get pennies on the dollar or nothing? If the company can present a reasonable argument that lump sum payment would be an excessive financial burden, then the installment payments would be a reasonable alternative in my opinion.

RE: AT&T Unlimited LTE Hotspot $20 without AT&T phones

OBDII - not compatible on a '96 or later vehicle? - Pure BS..:R (LOTS of independent mechanics would be out of business!) (Even if true - you could buy a cheap inverter (12V to 110V) to use with your 110V home to 12V converter - which you want anyway). The Ford F53 MH chassis didn't get OBDII until they switched to the V10 engine for 1999 models. There are direct 12-volt adapters available for the Mobley, and they can also easily be made with a few dollars for parts.

RE: Question about Transfer Switches

If your generator has two circuit breakers for the AC power, then you can break out the circuit that feeds one of the A/C's, running the generator side to a new duplex outlet and the load side to a 20 amp plug. In normal use, the plugs goes in the outlet. To power the A/C from a separate source, connect the plug to a heavy duty extension cord plugged into the site's 20 amp outlet.

RE: Looking for a Class A with one slide

Our 34' Landau has a single 14' "super slide" in the living/dining area, and the queen bed is fully accessible at all times. That was one of our criteria in selecting it, that the rig had to be fully accessible with the slide in. With it in, the only thing we lose besides the obvious floor space, is access to one seldom used 120-volt outlet.

RE: TPMS - I know, again!! Need some buying advice!

Whatever brand you consider, I highly recommend temperature sensing capability. I have the newer Tireminder TM66, which I like because it also allows me to "disconnect" the trailer sensors when I am only driving the truck, so I don't get "lost sensor" alarms for the trailer sensors. I absolutely agree on the temperature capability, and note that TST also has the "disconnect" feature when not towing.

RE: Dish Pointer Pro app

Once you center the cursor on the desired satellite, locking the compass will hold the elevation, etc., readings so you can lower the phone and still retain them for reference in setting up your dish. On the Android version, the button is marked "Compass On" or "Compass Off" when toggled.

RE: TPMS - I know, again!! Need some buying advice!

Would a pair of cameras looking at the tires be less fuss than a TPMS?Heavens no. TMPS is also a good way to check your tires before departing. .....and the cameras don't work at night Nor will cameras tell you that the temperature is rising quickly due to a stuck brake or bad bearing.

RE: $425 for Fake-Mud Jeans !

I'm going to compete with them by offering jeans at half their price with REAL mud on them. None of this fake stuff for discerning buyers! ;)
