RE: Stanley Steamer

Any steam cleaner can spray water. The magic is in the vacuum. Our home steam cleaner is a Mean Green. Same unit Loews rents.

RE: Good Thing he Didn't Put A Camper On It.

Lucky the rust killed it on the lift. Very bad if at freeway speed.

RE: cell reception options

Go for the Wilson Sleek Verizon 4g. It does cost extra. Should be helpful in many ways. The sleek does require speaker phone or Bluetooth. On 3g, expect 18db improvement in signal.

RE: Cab insulation

Depends on your definition of older model. I had a modified 96' Dodge Cummins. When pulling a load up the hill my wife learned not to talk to me. My 2006 Dodge Cummins is alot quieter with a heavier load.

RE: cell reception options

If cell service is spotty then a booster should work great. The booster isn't magic. Who is your provider? Which phone are you using? Here's an all 3g model. They also make 4g type units. The Sleek best used with Bluetooth. http://www.amazon.com/Wilson-Electronics-460106-Sleek-Packaging/dp/B003FGWGPS/ref=sr_1_2?rps=1&ie=UTF8&qid=1418879336&sr=8-2&keywords=wilson+sleek

RE: Cell phone signal amplifiers

Is the Ipad 4g Capable? If so, a booster might help. As mentioned earlier, they are not magic. There must be some signal to boost. Some models have more signal boost ability than others. Correct antenna placement is also very important. If you are on the edge of 4g it should work. There is a good possibility of the booster assisting the current 3g. One of my booster's is all 4g(lte), all 3g and all 1x.

RE: Roaming on T-Mobile

T-Mobile has bad service near their Bellevue, Wa headquarters. A few report good T-Mobile coverage in some areas. They appear to be the exception. Consider a prepaid phone from Walmart. Toss or donate when done with it.

RE: Air bags and tire ware

Air bags might result in rougher ride while empty. I would highly recommend at least checking on Torklift Stable loads. Depending on your make/model they make a quick disconnect model that gives a stock ride empty, engaged when hauling. What pressure are you running when empty?

RE: Best Option for Internet Access Traveling Cross Country?

Consider a Wilson sleek booster for your preferred internet device. They are not magic. The booster will greatly extend your service area. Consider a 4g sleek. Wilson does make stronger boosters. Price and complexity increase too.

RE: VZ Data

I average 10gb of data per month. I know some families consume less than 1gb for the entire family. Be sure your cloud services only sync over wifi.

RE: Cell Phone w/Unlimited Call Blocking

Samsung smart phones have Blocking mode. Only calls you designate ring through. You could "Unblock" all of your Contact list. Others can still leave a voicemail which would eventually get to you. I have Google Voice setup as my default voicemail client. I don't call in to receive voicemails. They arrive as email. The emails have a rough visual voicemail and audio download. I'm sure other Smartphones have a similar setup.

RE: CD Reader/Writer

There was an obscure VCD - Video CD. Not likely to find those laying around. If you're looking to buy new, buy a Blu Ray burner. While you probably won't burn Blu Ray, it should read/write most formats. Cost to upgrade is very small.

RE: HooToo TripMate Elite, successful "WIFI as WAN".

I have this unit. It works great. Will also power a Chromecast. I plug in an external 1TB hard drive while on the road. My daughter has her choice of media from her 8.9" Kindle. I also used the Tripmate as a backup house router when the home unit died.

RE: Where did you get your Electrical knowledge?

My Dad was really in electronics. The Navy then spent some money on me to learn. However, the job I ended up with in the Navy would not allow basic troubleshooting/repair.

RE: 2015 F-350 w/ AF 811, Stable load or Air Bags

Airbags can unload the suspension. Stable Loads engage the suspension sooner. Stable loads first.

I saw the lesser priced Sleek 3G amp listed for $89. Those with 4G phones commented that it works well. I suspect the newer 4G Sleek model boosts signal more efficiently. I wonder if the signal boost is more significant with the 4G model and worth another $45? Rhetorical question only. That's what the credit card is for! 4g for the sleek is a signal addition. The 4g version doesn't handle 3g signal differently. The sleek would work on T-Mobile or Verizon in case the OP changes carriers later.

Wish I would have spoke with you folks earlier. While T Mobile has no service contract we do have a purchase contract for the phones so switching probley not realistic. Thanks anyway What about selling the phones outright to satisfy your the sales price? Also, don't forget cellphone boosters. I have a few of them. They are not magic. They don't work everywhere. They do greatly extend your range. In my tow rig I'm currently running the Mobile Pro 4g. There is also an AC adapter for home or RV use. It's advertised as 5ft working radius. This is best case scenario. While driving our phones are within 1ft of the internal antenna. I have signal where no one else does. I also have a few Wilson Sleek boosters. These are single device only boosters. The Mobile Pro 4g is advertised as 50db signal gain. I've seen 35db gain. With the Wilson Sleek I average 18db gain. I'm not talking about the amount of bars on your front screen. I'm talking actual signal strength. Iphones require a code to be punched in to see the signal strength. Android signal strength is available in the Settings > About Phone > Status. The Mobile Pro 4g is a multi device all 4g booster (most 4g). The Sleek has different versions. All Sleek versions boost all 3g. There are a few different carrier specific 4g versions. They would boost Verizon and/or AT&T 4g plus all 3g. I linked to the all 3g only version.
