Is pricing at PPL in Houston negotiable or are they pretty firm?

RE: tracfone

Wife and I have had tracfone for years. Never had any coverage problems, since they used AT&T network. Just bought 2 of their smartphones (ZTE) and we are now on Verizon network. If you look at their phones, models ending in G will be AT&T and ending in C will be Verizon. The smartphones are 3x minutes for life so $19.99 for 60 minutes actually gets you 180 minutes talk, 180 minutes text and 180mb data, with 90 days before you have to add minutes. Didn't know you could get an iphone with tracfone, they don't list any.

RE: Handheld GPS Unit For GeoCaching

Wow, thanks everyone for your input! I am going to be partial to a dedicated GPS unit as I am in the truck (I use a TomTom VIA 1605 for RV's) Plus I do plan on eventually geocaching where there is no cell service available. So, paperless is the way to go... Is a color display necessary or not (just a nice thing to have?) WoodGlue Also look at the DeLorme PN-40

RE: New owner with big problem

Did all of you skip this? (They screwed up the paperwork and sold it for $9,000 less than early negotiated, not finalized, price (we noticed beforehand and asked them twice if the numbers were correct and final before ever driving down). What else should they have done? If twice they said price was correct, what would you do?

RE: Looking at Wireless Home Phone? Is it really portable???

Maybe I'm as dense as my ex wife claims but I can't see an advantage over just a simple cell phone other than using an old number. Anybody I wanna talk to has my cell number. We have been using the Verizon Home Phone Connect for over three years and I can tell you there are some differences. First, you can get service with it in areas where the cellphone signal is too weak. I assume it's because of the antenna on the Home Phone Connect. The reception and clarity on all calls is significantly better than on a cellphone. You don't get any of the talking over each other problems evident on most cellphone calls. If you have a given number of minutes on your cellphone plan, the Home Phone Connect can supplement as it has no usage limits. You may even want to lower your cell plan to a less expensive one with fewer minutes. As far as the number goes you can always transfer your home number to a cellphone if you wanted, so no advantage there. We are on the road about half the year and at home the other half. We have identical walk around phones in the MH and at home. I simply unplug the Home Phone Connect from one and plug it into the other depending on where we are at and it works great - we no longer have an account at ATT charging >50/mo for basic home service! So, if you're using this in your RV and call 911, will they respond to your RV location or your home location?

RE: Discount Tire add on insurance

It is not worth it. Tell me, when was the last time you had tire damage that was not repairable? For me, it was about 30 years ago. Figure you will damage a tire beyond repair very 20 years or so. They want $64 plus tax to protect the tires. If you are unlucky enough to damage a tire beyond repair, not likely, then how much more than $64 will it cost to replace a tire? Maybe $40? Are you willing to spend $64 to save $40 IF AND THAT IS A BIG IF you damage one tire? My car tires are $250+ EACH. In the last two years I've had three tires replaced by discount tire (over $600 total) for road hazard (see my post above) Two from hittig an expose water main cover, one from a sidewall nail. over $750 in tires replace under warranty at my cost of $64 for the set of 4. pretty good return on investment. I will admit, 40 series Z rated tires are much easier to be damaged than a LT tire. And I don't pay for the warranty on my truck tires, but do on my 40 series car tires and Maxxis TT tires. The road hazard is insurance. The basic rule is never buy insurance for anything you could comfortably repair or replace yourself, or the cost of the insurance is 2/3 of the value of the item being insured. Could you comfortably replace a tire if needed? I suspect most of these posters who claim they routinely make money on tire hazard insurance are really just fooling themselves and trying to fool us. Think about it....if they are making money then the store is loosing money. If the poster's experience is typical, meaning anyone can expect the same results, then the probability is the store is engaging in a money loosing proposition. How likely is that? The odds are that buying road hazard insurance will provide peace of mind but not provide a meaningful payback in dollars. Used to go offroading in Jeep with oversize tires ($200+ each.) Discount store manger also had off road Jeep and went with me. Always had their certificate and had many nearly new tires replaced due to off roading damage, tree limbs thru sidewalls, etc. No questions asked. Don't have good offroading locations near me anymore

Some reviews on www.rvparkreviews.com http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/Georgia/Tallapoosa.html However, nothing since 2010. That's why I asked.

RE: CB radio, How many users?

I encourage all RVers to get an amateur radio license. It's quite simple now that you no longer have to learn Morse code in order to get a basic license. You eliminate the trash talk on CB, and if you get the proper multi-band set up, you can communicate next door or around the world. That's very handy in an emergency. except it doesn't alert me to the accident 2 miles ahead. Have both cb and handheld ham with me.

RE: Windows XP

Still have 7 XP machines that we will soon be replacing with Lenovo 23" all-in-ones with Win7 Pro. For credit card processing we bought an acer iconia tablet and signed up with Square for credit cards. Lower fees and faster deposit to our bank.

RE: School me on hand held 2 meter radios (HAM)

jefe here from the TC forum. My bro has a ham radio in his TC and wants me to get a ham radio for my TC as we are going way off-grid on an Eastern Sierra Nevada run. My jeeping buddies all have hams in their rigs and I guess it's time for me too. The problem is I need it for both the jeep and the truck camper, so a hand held seems like the answer. Any advice for an old CB-er? I did a search and there were no hits for hand held ham radios. regards, as always, jefe First question is are you a licensed ham? If so look at BaoFeng UV-5R You do need a ham license to use it.

RE: Traveling with a cat

I didn't know cats could be diabetic. How did you find that out? Ours started drinking excessive amounts of water. Took her to vet and blood test showed diabetes. She has never traveled with us, but we have 2 others that do. One spends most of on the road time on wife's lap, other one under her seat.
