RE: How to measure DC current

I use an Amprobe clamp on AC/DC multimeter for individual circuits, however installing a TriMetric 2025 battery monitor is even more useful. You can easily keep track of amp hours in & out of your batteries; useful for dry camping.

RE: Want iphone for pay-as-you-go Verizon

vermilye, So you started out at $40 per month, voice only? No Text? But you added unlimited data for an extra $30 a month.Yes. My first phone was a non data flip phone & I rolled over the account with newer phones. The first iPhone required that I added data & all they offered was unlimited at $30.00, which I've kept since. The only problem is AT&T, unlike Verizon charges extra (and requires dropping the unlimited) to tether to the phone.

RE: Want new TT trailer but don't want a "Throw Away"

Depending on the size, you might look at a molded fiberglass trailer. Oliver, BigFoot & Escape make very well built trailers that last for many years. Some of the smaller models are still going after 40 years.

RE: miles driven per day?

How far per day depends on lots of things. I'm retired, so time is not as important to me as it is to many others. I prefer the secondary roads to interstates, so that tends to slow things down. I like to stop in the early afternoon so I have time to set up & explore the area, particularly if I'm only going to be there for a day or two. My best miles per gallon happens at 57MPH. With all that in mind, I prefer to do around 150 miles per day, will do as much as 250 if necessary, but have often done as little as 60 - 75.

RE: Want iphone for pay-as-you-go Verizon

While no longer available, and probably would not be for everyone, I have an AT&T iPhone with the Nation 450 with Rollover plan. $40.00 per month (no text). Unlimited data was added for $30.00, but would have to be dropped if I want to use the phone as a hotspot (without jailbreaking). A grandfathered plan that I've been able to keep through 3 phone upgrades. With a corporate discount of 15% & taxes, it runs $68.00 per month. (Data is 4G & LTE when available). By the way, AT&T's unlimited data isn't - go over 2GB in a month & they throttle you the following month (at least until the current law suit is settled)

RE: Best RV Park in Yuma Area

If you boondocking, the Imperial Dam BLM area about 30 miles NE of Yuma is great. You get a place to dump, fresh water & dumpsters for your trash, and with 3500 acres, can be as near or far from your neighbors as you want. A great community with all kinds of activities. 2 weeks $40.00, or $180.00 for 6 months.

RE: FTC Says AT&T Misled Consumers About Data

I have an iPhone on the $30.00 unlimited plan & while traveling I have run into the 2GB slow down. They send a text letting you know that you are over their "limit" (on unlimited?) and will be throttled next month. Generally only a problem if I'm in an area that doesn't have Verizon coverage since I have a Verizon based hotspot. With AT&T's far worse coverage in most of the country, it is rarely a problem.

RE: Bath before bedtime.

Mine is washed, waxed & the cover is on. Always a sad time! I have a 95 watt solar panel that still provides a trickle charge through the cover. I check the Trimetric 2025 every couple of weeks to be sure the batteries are up; check the water lever as well.

RE: Florida Campgrounds

AS others have mentioned, it all depends on the year. I spent a Christmas vacation in the Orlando area that started out below freezing & ice on the trees. A few days later it was shorts & tee shirts.

RE: Bulk, float, equalization levels for Costco 6V batteries

I'd check with the manufacturer (if I could find out who made them). For example, Interstate specifics a higher bulk for their 6V batteries than Trojan.

RE: Interesting Places to see and do

If you are into visiting ruins, I enjoyed Mesa Verde National Park in Colorado. The ranger led walks to the Long house was great. http://lakeshoreimages.com/images166/ASE_9092.jpg width=640 If you are willing to go on your own, my favorite is False Kiva at Canyonlands National Park. Ask for directions at the Islands in the Sky Visitor Center: http://lakeshoreimages.com/images174/ASD_1380.jpg width=640 Two other favorites are in the Cedar Mesa area - House on Fire in Mule Canyon (off UT95 west of Blanding, Utah): http://lakeshoreimages.com/images169/ASD_0133.jpg height=480 and Fallen Roof Ruin in Road Canyon (about 20 miles north of the Moki Dugway off of UT 261): http://lakeshoreimages.com/images377/_DSC2339.jpg width=640 Do an internet search for directions for both of these - they are not on well marked trails...

RE: Eco-Worthy 12v solar panels, Now drifting to... mono vs poly

It might come down to shipping - Solar Blvd is selling a 120 Watt folding panel for $205.00 (does not include shipping).

RE: Posting Pictures?

RV.net does not store your posted images; you can only make a link to them. That means you have to have the photo on a website or otherwise available as a link. There are a number of free photo sharing websites, however no all of them allow links to images stored on them. On Edit - The post above gives directions to a site that you can use...

RE: "Where do you go camping? What do you do?"

Yes. it is. The photo is a composite of 7 images shot in almost random directions & put together in the Photoshop Panorama tool. Previous to this photo I've always tried to level & carefully pan by a minimum of thirds to make a panorama. Never knew that as long as there are identifiable parts in each image, the panorama tool does a great job of matching things up.

RE: "Where do you go camping? What do you do?"

While there are lots of different things I do while traveling, the two main ones are attending fiberglass trailer rallies & photographing some of the most beautiful parts of the country. The Niagara Wine Escape Rally http://lakeshoreimages.com/images407/_DSC4850.jpg width=640 Devils Tower & the Milky Way http://lakeshoreimages.com/images396/_DSC4749-Edit.jpg height=480 More photos on the wrap up page of my last trip.

RE: Outside stereo speakers

The Magnadyne is a very low power unit. The inside cheep speakers do not need much power. If you go with a higher quality speakers it takes more power to drive them to get more volume.Actually, it depends on the design of the speaker cabinet. Some of the most expensive speakers will use far less power for the same sound pressure level as a cheap cabinet. I've used the earphone jack on a pocket sized transistor radio to demonstrate the efficiency of a good bass reflex cabinet - amazing the volume difference between the radio's built in speaker and the 3'X5' 3 way cabinet.

RE: Outside stereo speakers

Like everything else, there are quality differences between brands & models. I can tell you one set of "Outdoor" speakers to avoid - the Pyle PLMR24. While described as "3 way" speakers rated at 200 watts, they are not worth the trouble of hooking them up, and if you fed 200 watts into them, they would explode!

RE: New here...campgrounds that do not allow campfires

I don't know of any app or campground locating web site that filters for campfires, so you are probably going to have to call & check individual campgrounds in the area you find the weather acceptable.
