RE: Communicator Recommendation?

Such complicated responses. We use a pair of Motorola Walkie-Talkies. They cost about $50 to $75 for the pair, use either AAA batteries or rechargeable - most I have seen recently come with a charger and rechargeable batteries. Have no problem transmitting loud and clear the distance between the spotter and the driver (windows closed). That really is all that you need. You hear her, she hears you, and you ask where the heck she is directing you. What could be simpler for so little an investment. This is what we have used for many years. We had to do away with "Right" and "Left" and use "My Side" and "Your Side". Right and left posed a problem if the DW happened to be facing the direction that I'm backing in. The most important communication is "Stop". It was very frustrating when she was some place that I couldn't see her waving her arms around.

RE: Communicator Recommendation?

Perhaps utilizing an old, highly effective, proven system should be considered for your needs. This particular system is the choice for all truckers and large equipment movers. Its simple, easily understood, quickly learned. Yes, I'm recommending you & wife start using hand signals. While a proven system it fails shortly after sunset.

RE: Many of us have run into this when volunteering

I think that's the way it is now, temporary - no rules to leave. If I'm happy and the employer is happy why would I want to move on? If you are talking about a state or federal park they are not employers, there is no w9 or w2 no income reported. IMHO these were meant to be volunteer positions not permanent residence. Normally people doing this spend 2-6 months at a park then move on . In doing so other volunteers can enjoy the park. We do this to help the park and enjoy the area not to be a resident. When the time comes that we get off the road we will buy a stick house and reside in that area. But that's just us. If they are not employers, based on your description, what are they?

RE: Dead in the water, what to check?

I have a 1996 Coachman Santara. It has been sitting idle for just over a year. I went out to crank it this weekend and it is dead, nothing. All the batteries were dead so I put a good one in place of the engine battery but still nothing. If I put the key in and turn it, I get no lights or anything. If I try to turn on the headlights I get nothing. Are there some simple things to check that could be causing it? I don't really know anything about them, a friend is giving it to me. He said it worked fine when it was parked. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Real simple, did you clean the terminals? (Already suggested) Did you connect the new battery properly - Red positive and Black negative ? Are you sure the battery you connected is fully charged?

RE: Satellite TV and internet connection

Not that I know of. That would be to easy No, it's not easy since satellite TV and satellite internet have virtually nothing in common other than the fact that they both use satellites. Satellite TV is a one-way communication system, from ground station to satellite to your TV. Satellite internet involves a two-way communication link which includes a transmitter in your antenna to talk back to the satellite. So there is no reason for the two services to be bundled; the providers are different and the equipment needed is very different. You missed the point... It would be to easy if they had the services combined rather then using two or three different providers. I'm well aware of the workings of communication systems.

RE: Many of us have run into this when volunteering

I've run in to a few hosts who think they are the boss, CEO or what have you. My reaction is to ignore them and carry on with my assigned duties. It makes them go crazy and it makes me laugh. I have heard threats of being fired and even threatened with physical force by these power crazed hosts. I just continue ignoring them and walk away. I haven't been fired nor experienced the threatened physical force yet. Basically they are just overly impressed with themselves and tend to let their alligator mouth over run their chicken butt. Now if they are the "Host In Charge" and designated as such by management and are in to micro management I just leave and tell management why. There are just to many places out there looking for free help to put up with that kind of situation.

RE: new to full timing - questions, advice

An item we can't go without.. Handheld radios .. Absolutely necessary, IMHO, when backing into a site or that occasional you missed the turn moment and you have to turn around. The turn around moments should be kept to a minimum for the sake of your relationship with your significant other.

RE: The Mystery of the Ghost Calls

Don't know if a improperly grounded outlet would do it. I'm afraid that would happen once to often for me and it would be hammer time. Wouldn't fix it but I'd sleep better.

RE: The Mystery of the Ghost Calls

Does it happen all the time as in every night? If not what are the weather conditions when it happens? Is it raining? If it were happening to me I would disconnect all but one phone and start adding back others till it happens again. A royal PITA but you could zero in n the device causing the issue.

RE: Stop Microsoft Auto Updates NOW!!

As far as I know the only way to tell if the restore point works is to restore. I create a restore point before any program install and it's done automatically when windows updates. I create a restore point before I make any changes to the system and sometimes create a drive image before making them. I always want a path back. I restored my system from a bad FireFox install last night and it worked fine. In fact I have never had a restore point fail although I have read that it is possible. What do you mean by "Working as desired"?

RE: Hosts needed ANF Pennsylvania

According to a Virus Total Analysis the site is safe. Detection ratio: 0 / 51 I think you have a AVG false positive.

RE: Have You Upgraded WIN XP Yet? ... 95% of Bank ATMs Have Not!

Our new computer came with Windows 8 which sucked big time and it was upgraded (really?) to 8.1 which also sucked so we went back to Windows 7. Cost $150.00 but relieved us of the aggravation. A upgrade from Win 8.1 :)

RE: Stop Microsoft Auto Updates NOW!!

Three days ago, my laptop with Win7 went through the auto update, as it has been doing for several years. When it rebooted, I could not launch the Chrome browser. Mozilla and Explorer were fine. I eventually downloaded a new Chrome and reinstalled it. After the install it loaded, but would disconnect Chrome after running a couple of minutes. After about a dozen of these, it stopped having problems. I do think the issue was related to the MS update, but I am not knowledgeable enough to know how. Wayne I've given up on Chrome. To many updates screwing up to many things. They change things to often requiring an add on to restore it to the way it was before the update. The scroll bars come to mind as well as the new tab page. There's lots of complaints being posted over at the Chrome forums but the developers seem to be oblivious to them or just don't care. I switched to Pale Moon which seems to be just as fast if not faster then Chrome. I noticed that it's easier on memory then Chrome as well. Pale Moon is an Open Source, Firefox-based web browser. I'm very happy with it. Pale Moon

RE: Stop Microsoft Auto Updates NOW!!

I download the updates automatically then wait a few days before installing. I only install two or three at a time then reboot. Installed this morning with no problems. Usually a restore point will be made automatically before the updates install. Perhaps it's just Dell systems that are having this problem.
