RE: P4400 'KILL-A-WATT' Meter

I monitor my usage to know that the devices I chose stay within the output of my solar system and under the radar of the battery bank.

RE: Old Wilson 801201 cell booster

I have devices on all four carriers and they all have LTE.

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

Well I know where there is one extra Mobley since the Corporate store in Phoenix said they would let me know IF they could get one in and then didn't let me know until it arrived two weeks later after I had gone a different route.

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

There is a power save timer also. Mine was turning off every 30 minutes. I set it to never to stop that. Yes that's right, I finally got mine after weeks of trying to get it, diving to Prescott to order it, convincing the guy it could be done, driving back to Cottonwood to pick it up only to not be able to activate it. He didn't tell me the passcode to the account, attached my email to the order but not the account, had a clerk in Flagstaff not guessed it was a default I would be driving to Glendale to get it fixed. Now it's up and running, loves the Wilson Sleek/ directional antenna combo and is streaming fine in the hills above Flagstaff on 180. All of the devices have a full signal except the Sprint LTE with 2 bars. That's still enough to stream with.

RE: Is your favorite OTA TV Station going away ?

I know T-mobile has been involved with stations that use their Band 12.

RE: AT&T ZTE Mobley - *NO* grief - availability & sign-up! FYI

I tried ordering it twice online with AT&T only to have the orders cancelled because they could not verify who I was. Tried to order it online at Best buy but could not. Called Best buy and was told I could order it at one store because they were out of stock and have it shipped to the store where I would be next. Tried this and they could not do it. Went to a AT&T store and had to order it as none near here have it. Had to convince sales person it could be done with out a AT&T account to connect it too by having him go through the online order system. Went through the verification and it is being sent no money down, no cost for the device and no set up fee. The sales person thanked me many times for bringing the deal to his attention and showing him how to get it. Had to have it sent to a shipper I use that will forward it where I will be next. I have already received the adapter off of ebay so my cost so far are $47. What a ordeal but worth it for the $20 unlimited data.

RE: Solar panels

There is something in being able to collect from first light to the last light, especially in the low sun and short hours of winter. That said after 3 years of portables I was glad to have my main system mounted. Even my portable is mounted on my tow vehicle which gets moved three times a day to keep it lined up.

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

M first attempt was cancelled. No AT&T store within 100 miles has it. One is trying to get it in. No Best buys here have it. Have tried reordering from site. Issue I believe is having it shipped out here instead of back home.

RE: $1 cheapie LEDs bought in 2012 still holding up

All of the panels and cobs I bought in 2012 are still working although the tape has failed on most of the more used panels. The big 120 count porch light went out in February after water got into the fixture during a big storm. I replaced it with the same since I couldn't find brighter.

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

Great thread! I ordered my Mobley and adapter today. I have held off until I found out it seems no store in Arizona has them to pick up in person. It has been interesting so far with different devices coming out on top in different areas. Right now my unlimited Sprint 4G is king in the middle of the Coconino Nat forest near Sedona.

RE: Are Interstate 6v Now Trojans?

When I was in Solar Bills in Quartzsite having the 435w panel installed on the truck, Bill pointed out the Interstates and Trojan 6v's and said they were made in the same plant. After 6 years of my Interstate Grp 27 faithfully doing its job I gave it to another RV'r. Still going strong.

RE: solar sail cloth

I think it would be great as a add on to the roof system. My thought is they would be starting at the bottom of the efficiency range again when more mature technologies are producing more in one ridged panel than your whole roof top. How long before we start seeing 500 or 600w per panel.

RE: Champion 2800/3100 Invertor Generator

So I guess that brings up the question then. Has anyone worn out their Champion 3100 yet?

RE: Need to up my solar to do some serious charging

Does it matter whether the panels are mono or polycrystalline? Few here have been able to actually test monos vs polys side by side in various conditions like I have. monos have a slight advantage in bright sunlight. Polys have a huge advantage in anything else. I went with polys because the sun doesn't always shine but I always use power.

RE: T Mobile coverage

I have a TMO hotspot with band 12. I have to tell you that as far as coverage goes, my Cricket phone on AT&T gets much better coverage. Generally if I am close enough to a larger city to get good TMO service, then I also have Sprint. It's not always the case, sometime one or the other has service. Verizon almost always has service and I have only seen a few spots out in the boonies that Cricket did not. So look real hard at where you will be and the coverage they offer before switching. Quartzsite as a example was barren for TMO but Sprint had at least 3G. Cricket was fine but Verizon overloaded one night when the big tent opened.

RE: Campfires for Dummies

Yeesh All it takes is a few shots of RC airplane glo fuel. That's alcohol, castor oil and nitro. 25% nitro works best. ;)

RE: Birth Of The Gigawatt

Gee Mex, sounds like the Lifelines might not chew it up and spit it out quite as easy as they did the first time. I have a 30 amp version from the other company but haven't even thought of wiring it up since the 435w portable has the heavy lifting done by the time the roof system even has a chance to get going.

RE: Fixed or portable solar?

For years I used the larger panels portable and there is just nothing like catching the earliest rays of the day and getting full power until the sun goes down. That said, I dreamed of the day I could get my panels mounted and not deal with it. The thing is after watching the effect of being able to track the sun early and late, it is almost painful to know the light is there but the roof system isn't going to really get going for hours after sun rise. So now I have a roof system AND a portable as well. My portable is mounted onto the roof of the truck and tilts. I can move the truck to keep it lined up during the day, it isn't going to blow over or walk away and I don't have to lift it or store it where it will interfere with using the trailer. It also charges the batteries as I am on the road. It really is the best of both types.

RE: Home brew hybred inverter generator set up

Soft start was what I was thinking for mine, I tend to get them mixed up. I am also thinking of looking for something larger as this unit was fine for 10,000 ft and dry conditions. Here in the southwest with 40% humidity it is a bit overwhelmed trying to cool the trailer.

RE: Home brew hybred inverter generator set up

I have seen a you tube on adding a hard start to I believe the same little A/C so that a Honda 1000 would run it, it may be possible with the Sportsman too.
