RE: A "preferred" cigarette lighter cellular charger???

Hoping to charge NOOK, the Galaxy and led lantern all at the same time. I hope that works out for you, but we have had problems trying to charge/use multiple gadgets at once. Wife's Galaxy and my phone. From what I have read, I think that 2.4 amps is typically spread across the 3 ports on the charger, NOT 2.4 amps x 3

RE: Bad idea?? Craigslist 1984 GMC LINDY $4500

THe VIN seems to be missing the last 4 digits. But the VIN seems to indicate a Chevrolet manufactured in Canada. Looks like the grill emblem is also Chevy?

The roof appears to have been covered with a roof coating. There appears to be a couple stains on the inside ceiling at the A/C. I thought I had noticed some ceiling stains also.

RE: Bad idea?? Craigslist 1984 GMC LINDY $4500

The pictures do look pretty good. They were kind of dark and I could not see the shining cabinets you mention. Keep in mind that they never look as good in person as the pictures online. The pictures do show an air conditioner on top. The statement of 'motivated seller' makes me think some dealer is actually listing it. The craiglist listing shows it to be in Cincinnati. And it says OBO so they expect to be negotiated down on price. Probably the most important thing to look for on a used MH is water leaks/damage. Do expect to spend money on it to get it up to par. Tires, brakes, hoses at the minimum. Happy hunting.

Here is the Cadillac: Clicky Yep, that appears to be a 2.4 amp unit. But, he does want a Rolls Royce :)

RE: A "preferred" cigarette lighter cellular charger???

When my wife got a Tablet, we learned to check the Amp rating on the little 12 volt plug in car chargers. We got a 1 amp at a truck stop and it would not charge while it was in use. 1 amp works for a phone. 2 amp works for a tablet. I have seen them rated up to 2.4 amps. I don't know about any rolls royce models. I think the one we got for the tablet was around $15 and has been working great for a couple years.

RE: Texas Safety Inspection

I called my dealer and even though they don't do them, they refereed me to a place near them that does.

RE: Purchase Using 3rd Party Escrow Company

I did a little checking. The website domain shows to be new as of Last Month. The domain registrar is located outside of the United States. The website shows up in a couple of Fraudulant Website Reports: http://www.fraud-news.com/showthread.php/91229-John-Reynolds-Group http://db.aa419.org/fakebanksview.php?key=97716

RE: Programable Thermostat Question

I have been using the mode to turn things off. Simply because I have been either too lazy or don't see the benefit of programming it. I do program my Home thermostat, but in the RV I just want to manually control it for some unexplained reason.

RE: Very Short Term Storage Ideas in Memphis

I google mapped it. Looks like it is in a very commercial area. All parking is 'garage' parking multi-level.

I've had it go both ways at different parks.

RE: Front View Camera-anyone else use one?

No. To me it is just another gadget. I also did not realize that so many State are now clamping down on windshield mounts for devices. When I was younger the local PD in Va, were hard on anything on the windshield or rear-view mirror. I guess it has come full circle again. http://blog.proclipusa.com/are-suction-cup-windshield-mounts-legal-in-your-state/ That blog just happens to appear on a company website that sells dashboard GPS and Phone mounts. They also sell a windshield suction cup mount. Since I usually question things that seem to be self serving, I googled the******out of the issue. The only state that keeps coming up as illegal is California (of course). Now, I would think you might get in hot water if you had something on the windshield that blocked your vision, I can find nothing credible that indicates suction cup mounts themselves are illegal in 'many states' as the blog states.

RE: Front View Camera-anyone else use one?

There are multiple versions with varying angle width, battery or capacitor, color etc. Also, you need to make sure the place you buy it from is reputable as there are some with a counterfeit chipset in them. Here is a page about the different models. http://dashboardcamerareviews.com/g1w-gs108/

RE: 6.8 V10 E450 mpg on Ford

Our 2013 E450 V10 that is 32' long gets about 8mpg... not much difference if it's towing or not. Now that, is an honest answer. :)

RE: What's that smell?!

Either the batteries or hot water heater.
