RE: Questions about Acadia next fall

I use the Foliage Network to look up timing for the East. You can check back 4-5 years to come up with an average, and once things start to turn, they update the current year often. As to a favorite park, I usually stay at Lamoine State Park across the bay. About 17 miles from the National Park.

RE: What's up with Millenicom?

rdthompson1 wrote: You can buy the same stuff elsewhere and sign up with that. It does not have to come from Millenicom. I'm using it now and it is fine most of the time. Any where exactly have you actually done this? And is it month to month with no contract and is $90 for 20GB of data with 4G using the Verizon network? Actual facts would be helpful, anything else is a waste of people's time. Hmm I would also be interested in that. I have a verizon mifi already but was under the impression that I needed to buy Millenicoms mifi. That would be great if I didnt have too I believe there are some variables there, as when I checked a while ago there was a program in which you could use a unit purchased elsewhere. In my situation, whether that was location, plan, or whatever it was, I would have needed to purchase from them. I don't remember specifics, or even if it's still in effect. The website explains it all. If you check their current website, the "Bring Your Own" plan is no longer available. It was on the Sprint network. If you want their Hotspot plan, you must purchase the hotspot through Millenicom (which, as noted, is temporarily out of stock).

RE: Crater Lake/Mazama Campground

Another vote for Collier State Park. Good Verizon coverage; not sure about AT&T. I've also stayed at Joseph Stewart & liked the campground - good AT&T coverage, slow 1X for Verizon. If you continue West on OR 138, be sure to check out Susan Creek BLM campground near Glide. A great location for seeing the many waterfalls along OR 138. Beautiful location; no hookups, but hot showers.

RE: Found this generator at Home Depot. "deal of the day"

While a 3db increase is a doubling of power, it is not a doubling of loudness. Loudness is subjective since the human ear is being used as a measuring device. If you take a couple of hundred people and ask them to turn up a sound source until it is twice as loud, the average change would be around 10db. A trained ear can hear a 1db level difference, however most individuals require a larger increase to detect a change unless listening to a single frequency tone. As 12thgenusa noted, Decibels are logarithmic. It takes some adjustment of logic to accept that a 3db change is doubling, a 10db change is 10X power, 20db change is 100X power, a 60db change is 1,000,000X power, etc.

RE: GPS speedometer rplacement

The satellites used for the GPS system are close enough to the Earth that any delay due to distance is negligible. The delay is caused by both processing & refresh time (how often GPS updates). My GPS is my primary speedometer - I rarely even look at the original.

RE: internet providers

While a Verizon Hotspot will not work on the AT&T network (Different technology & 4G frequencies), if you want to stick with AT&T, they sell hotspot devices. You can get them (with contract) from AT&T or even Walmart.

RE: 12v lamps go dim, then bright repeatedly

Another possibility is a auto resetting thermal circuit breaker on another circuit tripping & resetting. Do you have any other 12V device that has stopped working? If you have a clamp on DC amp meter, check the battery current. If it goes up when the lights dim, that is likely the problem.

RE: Looking for Fall Suggestions

One of my favorite Fall Color locations is Ricketts Glen State Park in PA. A 7 mile trail along 22 waterfalls and hundreds of cascades, etc. http://lakeshoreimages.com/images147/ASE_1212.jpg width=640 More photos and information at me LakeshoreImages page. If you do the Blue Ridge Parkway, a short hop over to West Virginia & Babcock State Park and the Glade Creek Grist Mill is worth a stop: http://lakeshoreimages.com/images274/ASG_7510.jpg width=640

RE: Campground recommendations.

I spent a month in the La Paz County Park in Parker, AZ. Some sites are right on the Colorado River, February temperatures were in the 60's & 70's. Sites have water & electric, and a pump truck is available once a week. Clean bathrooms & showers, lots of activities and a great floating bar/restaurant next door. $340.00 + Electric per month ($235.00 for dry camping). Of course, if you want cheap, Imperial Dam BLM camping area across the river about 25 miles from Yuma is $40.00 for 2 weeks, and $180.00 for the entire winter. No hookups, but a great community (water, a dump station, and dumpsters are included).

RE: GFCI issues when powering two 30A RVs from a 50A outlet

15/20 amp outlets are the only ones that may have GFCI outlets. 30 and 50 do not. You will be ok.While MOST 30 amp pedestals don't have GFCIs, a few do. Ran into one at an Indiana State Park last week.

RE: Quartzsite

I stayed at Dome Rock for a week in February (with 91 other fiberglass trailer owners). Free for up to 2 weeks, but no dump station or garbage dumpsters. The long term camping areas are $40.00 for 2 weeks or $180.00 for 7 months, and they do have trash bins, a dump station & potable water. I stopped by to see the "Big Tent" show in January, but other than picking up a good deal on a chair, could have passed it up. I also stayed a couple of weeks at the Imperial Dam BLM Long Term Camping area just over the border in California, and really liked it. A great community...

RE: eBay Beware Of Shipping Cost Game Playing

Yea, but Amazon does the same thing with its used book dealers - $.01 for the book & $3.99 for shipping. Buy 2 from the same dealer & pay double the shipping...

RE: Millenicom

One last point about the Verizon jetpak we have. It accepts an outside antenna. Several times last fall it was the difference in getting reception or not. From what the local Verizon folks told us, our Jetpack will work with Verizon after they change the sim card, and the new Jetpacks will not accept outside antennas with the magnetic base like we have, so we should keep what we have now. Even better than a connected antenna is to place your jetpak in a Wilson Sleek that is connected to an outside antenna (I use a Wilson short trucker antenna). No physical connection, but you get additional gain from both the antenna & the Sleek. The latest version of the Sleek works with either AT&T or Verizon with any phone or jetpak.

RE: Do 14' to 17' Travel trailers get lighter from 50's to 70's?

While it isn't "Vintage", I tow an Escape 17B with a 2010 RAV4 (V6 & tow package) rated at 3500/350. Actual weight packed for a 1 year trip - 3010 lbs. I've towed it 53,000 miles over the last 3 years, including both east & west mountains.

RE: Iconic USA Drives....List Your Favorite

If I only had to pick one, here is another vote for the Going to the Sun Road in Glacier National Park. Be sure to drive it both directions - the views are different. Still, there are so many more...

RE: What am I missing in Grand Teton?

Sunrise at Mormon Row is a treat not to miss. Google Mormon Row barns and you'll see what I mean.2X The snow on the Tetons contrasted with the buildings at Mormon Row are alone worth a trip to the Tetons, although there are many more beautiful locations in the park. And as to Glacier, if you feel driving the Going to the Sun road in one direction is all there is to see, you need to go back! Very different each direction, different times of the year, many great hikes, and definitely my favorite National Park.

RE: camping spots in and around bryce canyon

Check out Red Canyon, about 9 miles from Bryce.

RE: Ricketts Glen State Park

If you are coming from the south on PA 487 (the only way into the park from the south), you will have a 2 mile, 18% grade to pull between Red Rock & the park. If you are not comfortable with that, you will have to go around & come in from the north. The last time I was there I stayed in 104, a large site with a little isolation between sites. If interested, I have a photo of the site at Ricketts Glen, Day 1

RE: Progressive Industries EMS-HW30C Problem

in my company solder dressing leads under a screw connection was a no-no. This was on equipment that had to meet MIL288800B environmental conditions. solder cold flows, it is soft, even the lead free. over time the connection begins to loose compression, end result is heat. 2X. Prior to my retiring, part of my job was maintaining a theatre lighting system. That included many miles of 12/3 S extension cords. When the original cords were supplied with the theatre, NY state required tinning of the stranded wires at the connectors. We continually had problems with the connector screws loosening, causing intermittent connections, or overheating of the connector. When we built our own cables, we didn't tin the connections, and had far fewer problems with loose screws.

They are all great, but 2 medicine is by far my favorite. Fills early, so don't try to get there late in the day...
