RE: iPhone 5s help using Hotspot

Just got a 5s (had a 4) when using the Hotspot I can not receive my email using Outlook 03.. I think I can send (not positive) Any suggestions? Thanks 1. Send an email to yourself to check receiving email 2. delete and reinstall Outlook 3 3. try installing another mail program, I use Apple Mail version 7.3 (1878.6 4. Go to your settings/preferences and open all your accounts. Delete them one at a time and then create the same account. 5. Go Settings, open General, scroll down to the very bottom and then click of RESET. This will reset your iphone back to all factory defaults. P.S. I don't like to be limited using just WiFi/hot spots so I added the "cellular date" plan from AT&T so I can use my iPhone 6 and IPad 2 air express any where I am traveling without seeking out Hot Spots:) Just what works for me.

RE: What are the best Apps?

Just dumped the talk only phone and now can become smart. I'm amazed what this Note 4 is capable of doing but have a lot to learn to use it. I got a few basic apps like Gas Buddy, Road Ninja, Facebook, and e-mail. So many apps and hard to understand what may be of the most use. Bring on your recommendation's of what I need. Randu 1. weather apps weather underground 2. free trip planner - good sam 3. Google maps 4. WA Wind apps, the weather Channel 5. Good Sam Road Side Assistance 6. Help me - emergency app will automatically dial 911 and give your location 7. In calif. CARR to give you current road conditions on any road 8. Road Trippers 9. Good Sam Camping

RE: IPad not recognizing WIFI

Charlie D......The Home button on the IPad is a round button located on one side of the front. Pressing tht button alone will take you back the initial screen with all the icons for the aps. nomad927.........Tried the hard reboot & it didn't work. rk911 & 100ton...........Discarded my WiFi on the IPad and added back....."IT WORKED" :B I am wondering why I didn't think of that....:S I am also wondering why the lady from Apple didn't know that..:? Thanks for the replies & especially rk911 for coming up with the answer. Big Rig Glad you got it to work:) Most Apple tech people know that, you just got a rookie. If I get the sense that the tech person is unsure in her answers, I just ask to speak to a Senior supervisor. It is not unusual to have to delete and reinstall an account when it is not working correctly, but fortunately it dosen't happen very often.

RE: IPad not recognizing WIFI

I have my IPad setup to automatically connect to my WIFI at home. When I open the cover to wake it up, it doesn't see the WIFI. I can go to the settings & it shows that it is connected to my WIFI but it will not work on the WIFI. If I turn the WIFI off & then turn it back on, it will start working or I can turn the IPad off & on & that also makes it start to work. As long as I am using the WIFI, it continues to work. It almost feels like it is timing our if I don't use it for a while. It started doing this a couple months ago after I upgraded to IOS 8. I called Apple & they had me reinstall IOS 8 but that didn't help. Any suggestions?? Thanks, Big Rig I have had to "reboot" or reinstall my AT&T modem by putting in the password to add the account, but only one time. I just bought a new iPad Air 2 and hooked up to both wifi and my cellular data. I want to be able to use my iPad anywhere and not be limited to wifi connections or hot spots. I pay $3.99 per month with AT@T to be hooked up to my cellular data plan. Just another option.

RE: Any Idea How to Get the Bulb Out of This Light?

Just a reminder, when installing LED lights, use a small cloth to hold onto the light when you install it.Why? I started replacing all my lights to LED, the RV technican told me that the natural oils from my hands could damage the LED light.

RE: Any Idea How to Get the Bulb Out of This Light?

I feel kinda dumb asking this question but I was looking at my lights in the ceiling as I want to change them over to LED. However, I can't figure out how to get the cover off the light... The light is about 2'' in diameter and I don't see anything obvious as to how it comes out. Any help is appreciated. http://rs1219.pbsrc.com/albums/dd438/tlukasavige172/ATC%20Trailer/AAFBBE37-EB71-481A-BEDE-DEDAA57C0D92_zpsj4kbvjcf.jpg~320x480 Just a reminder, when installing LED lights, use a small cloth to hold onto the light when you install it.

Without the rubber glove it is difficult to maintain a solid grip as you turn the light fixture.

RE: Brand new to camping and lots of questions

IMHO, 1. look for a used 3/4 diesel truck 2. look at trailers with floor plans that have bunk beds for the kids. You will probably end up with about a 30ft. in length in order to provide the space for your family. 3. Take a look at some of the Lance models. Why quote yourself? Just an mistake, will try better next time:( Have a nice day:)

RE: choosing tow vehicle

Which tow vehicle to buy?? As a general rule, it has been my experience to buy tow vehicles that gave me more towing capacity than I might normally need. Having a tow vehicle not having enough towing capacity can lead to problems.

RE: PSI

Ok, ready for the shootout!!! Has anybody out there replaced C rated with D rated on orig wheels (rated for C)??? In other words installed a tire which has a max inflation pressure 10 to 15# above the wheel rating?? Just a wondering aboot moment!!!! Not unless a person is looking for trouble:(. Just break down and buy some new wheels:)

RE: PSI

Tires-- IMHO, buy the highest rated rims, highest rated tire d,e,g that will fit on your RV rig. Some subscribe to the idea of buying the lowest price tire available in order to avoid spending extra money. Good theory but generally speaking means that you have greater possibility of blow outs/ tire seperations and more often. Good Year Tire man with "G" rated tires:):):)

RE: Trip up coast--NorCal, Oregon, Washington

I need ideas and suggestions for a 3 week trip I'm planning for my family, two adults and two kids, up the West coast this summer starting from the Sacramento area. We'll be in a 30' travel trailer. Specifically, I'm looking for route, campground, and site seeing/activity suggestions. We definitely want to see the Humboldt Redwoods and will probably make that our first stop, but I am looking for ideas for the rest of the trip. We prefer state park / national park camping to "resort" style....but we also expect to spend time at more developed campsites to explore some of the larger cities. We have some time, so we could even venture into Canada (though I haven't looked at any issues wrt taking an RV across the border). Any input would be great! jrichard, You have a great trip planned. Just to give you a different perspective and base from which to begin making your plans and itinerary, The total milage from Sac. to Vancover is approx. is 900 miles one way. So driving 4-5 hrs a day, at 60mph would get you 240 to 300 miles per day. So have you are going to have to figure approx. 6 days for the total trip. Driving at 60mph would take you approx. 6 days of driving for your round trip. So, if you have 3wks or 21 days for the total trip, you now now have 15 days to plan for all the sight seeing, camping etc etc activities. Hope this will be of some assistance helping you plan what and where you want to allot your time. Let us know what your final trip looks like. I have made this same trip many times both in my 5th. wheel and on my Gold Wing motorcycle. I spend one month every year RVing just the Oregon coast. You just have to decide what kind of RV trip you want to create-- a trip that is comfortable with time to stop and smell the roses or a trip that is a little less easy traveling and fewer days just site seeing and relaxing. If you want more information, email me privately with specific questions. dick

RE: Suggested route from Las Vegas to San Francisco.

In April we'll be pulling our 31ft 5th wheel to visit our son in San Francisco, we have time, no rush at all. From Las Vegas, what would you recommend for a nice, scenic route? Places we could stay and/or any other ideas. We'd love to drive a bit along the coast, but it ain't that easy with a 5'er... Not thrilled to take I-5 ?? Thanks. Hello shepcal, My preference would be 2 different routes comming and going: 1. To S.F. I-15 to 395 to I-80 then I would take I-80 to Hwy 37 out of Vallejo to any where around the Napa or Petaluma areas. I would use these areas to park the RV to use as a home base so you can drive to S.F. to visit the family without the RV. Yes, there are a limited number of RV parks in the S.F area BUT it is not an area I would drive my 5th. wheel there on a bet, traffic and congestion. Crossing across the Bay Bridge or the Golden Gate bridge towing a 5th. wheel is a real "white" knuckle experience:( From your home base you can visit all the Wineries and then sight see/visit in S.F. :) 2. From S.F. to Vegas Take Hwy. 37 back to I-80 to 680 to 101, take 101 all the way south to Hwy 126 out of Ventura to I-5, then north on I-5 back to Hwy. 58 in Bakersfield, take I-15 to Vegas:) This gives you the whole west coast on 101 for the scenic part of your trip. If you want more specific suggestions on routes or sights to see, email me privately. Great trip:) dick Why go all that way south to go north again? Take 46 east from Paso Robles to 99 then south about 20 miles to 58. Then to Barstow and 15. Taking 46 to Bakersfield would be more direct. But, he said that time was not an issue and he wanted a scenic route. Both routes will just give him some alternative choices.
