RE: Secure internet access?

We use the VERIZON MIFI 2200 plan for 3GB data that creates a secured WIFI HOT SPOT for up to five wifi enabled devices. VERIZON seems to be the best coverage for us all over the US. This MIFI unit works anywhere you pick the Verizon cell phone signals. http://cdn.ubergizmo.com/photos/2009/5/mifi-2200.jpg height=200 I was always very Leary using the HOT SPOTS scattered all over various places but alot of folks do just that.. My VERIZON MIFI device sits in a WILSON SLEEK Cradle which has an external antenna that really boosts the signal for us. http://www.antennagear.net/images/InitialSet/MiFiHS-1.jpg height=200 Roy Ken Verizon has the best coverage thru out the southwest. We have been using this system and their phones for about 12 years!

RE: Generator Hours

Ours has 1500 hrs. Coach has 89K miles. Runs great if I keep the fuel filter maintained. I also run mine at least every 1-2 months during the year!

RE: new to DP and question regarding charging batteries

I have lived w/30 amp for 2 months in the winter, I only run one a/c w/heat pump at a time. At home I use a 20 amp and can run one A/C only. My ac's take about 15 amps/ea for the compressor to kick in. So you can see why you need 50 amp for both to run at the same time.

RE: Is 360 hp enough for for 38-40 ft class A

My 350 Cummins pulls a 4800# toad and I don't even feel it. I go over the rockies all the time and if that is not a test nothing is!!!

RE: Hwy 1 in Ca

Need ideas on replacing crank up antennae!

I just had a Winegard Traveler installed on my Dutch Star. The old crank up antennae can't be used at the same time as the Traveler dish since it can be hit by the Traveler. I need a 10" or lower antennae in place of the crank up for over the air TV. Has anyone faced this problem and any suggestions on a replacement antennae!

RE: Head Light Lens Fogged Up

I had to replace mine since they would not clear up w/ the lens cleaner/polishing method. The inside of the lens was also clouded from aging!!!

RE: Shock Absorbers

I replaced the shocks on my 31" Safari gasser w/Bilsteins and also just replaced the DP w/ OEM Bilsteins. I am happy w/ the ride & I don't think I would notice that much difference w/ Koni's or Monroes!!

RE: labor cost of Cummins ISL replacement

The diesels are not perfect engines by any means. In the last year I have spent $$$$$$$ on my engine for repairs. Had the exhaust manifold replaced, new turbo charger, new head, new fuel pump, new fuel lines was the first problem. Then the engine shut down on our last winter trip on I40 and had a nightmare of a time trying to get that problem solved. I have 89K on the MH so the 300-400K mi engine didn't quite last that long without major repairs. I was told to R&R a rebuild engine could cost about 30K at that time but at least I didn't have to do that. By the way I have kept up with all the required maintenance on this MH.

RE: Winter Storage Questions

I take our DP out for drives (10-20 mi)every 4-6 weeks to keep all the seals, etc lubricated. Been doing it for 12 years and don't have any problems.

RE: Denver to Utah in January ??

We live in Golden, CO and leave when it gets cold. I'm not much for traveling in the MH when there is possible snow or ice. I use I-25 in the winter, not interested in going over the passes on I-70. Been there done that! I guess you can call us snowbirds now!

RE: Flagstaff

AZ has been super friendly to us over the years. I have camped in Flagstaff and never a problem.

RE: Mountains on I40 from New Mexico to Las Vegas

Easy travel area. We go that route in early January and late March every year. We will avoid the route if there is snow in the forecast!!

RE: What is the best Tow Bar

I have used Roadmaster for 10 years and it has never failed. My brother had a Blue OX tow bar fail on a Jeep once!

RE: Wrong Pump in AZ

It's obvious that the sticker on the pump can be interpreted by AZ officials to include Diesel RV's over 26K and 3 axel and several have been ticketed for the 1K fine. So isn't it obvious that you would want to fuel at the pumps paying the additional tax unless you want to risk the fine! Is $8 per Hundred gals of fuel going to break the bank?

RE: How long can a DP sit until problems Set-In?

It all depends, we have a 12 yr old MH w/88K mi and have been using it regularly since we bought it. Start up and drive every month to 6 weeks and do all the regular maintenance required. This last year we have had many repair problems to the tune of about 18K $$$ including 2 breakdowns on the interstate last winter. I thought the Diesels were to last to 250k or more miles w/out problems. I was wrong. IMHO, It still beats buying a permanent vacation home w/ similar costs over the same period.

RE: How much weight do you tow? and with how much motor?

We pull 5000# toad and loaded MH thru the rockies all the time. Our 350 ISC cummins will hold 55 if we keep up RPM's and don't lose speed from behind a semi on 6% grades. If we have to slow down it will still climb @ 45MPH using manual shifting to keep up RPM's!!
