RE: 600 watt pure sine wave inverter

I have and recommend Go Power 300 watt sine wave for powering the entertainment system and recharging small items. Get the 600 if you must but I think 300 is fine. http://www.boatandrvaccessories.com/go-power-gp-sw300-12-300-watt-12-volt-pure-sine-inverter.html x2

RE: VZ Data

Big Whitey Which device are you using? Is it the Jetpack® 4G LTE Mobile Hotspot MiFi® 5510L? I've been thinking of getting it and I probably will now that they appear to have doubled the data for the same price. I have another service besides Verizon and we're only allowed 1 gig of data per month when out of our home area which is at least half of the year. Bill The data plan I referenced was for an iPhone 6. Sorry for the confusion.

RE: VZ Data

I received an offer for another 4 gb free but my contract has expired. Wondering if I should try the half-price Sprint offer instead but VZ has a much better reputation. In a word NO to Sprint.

RE: VZ Data

I'm guessing that deal also restarted your 2 year contract? Wireless carriers place high value on having you under contract for as long as possible. There is currently a bit of a price war between carriers, which has been mostly focused around increased data allowances. As carriers finally are able to keep up with ever increasing data demands, HOPEFULLY we'll see the pricing of data plans continue to fall. FYI: I am a new VZ customer (1 month) with the VZ 2 GB data plan and paying $50 per month. Today I received a text from them wanting to know if I would be interested in 4 GB for the same $50 cost. DUH,I said yes and in less than a minute I went from having 2 GB of data to having 4 GB at the same cost. The deal DID NOT restart my contract or result in a contract extension.

RE: Sailing the Southwest with the Whazoos

Great TR as usual. You just continue to spoil us with your many adventures in a very scenic area. You must truly be the king of photoshop with all the witty enhancements on your pics. So happy the girls are doing well.

RE: VZ Data

If you have a smart phone you may have to buy more! Sorta doubt it as there are only two of us and we both already have smart phones. Can't figure why we would need more than one, so they're out of luck. Lol.

RE: VZ Data

I was hooked when I bought my first I phone and signed my first 2 yr contract with AT&T. Going with VZ and getting my data doubled the first month is like getting a bonus at work for doing what you got to do anyway.

RE: Dometic Fridge too cold

Fridge too cold? What a hoot! My Dometic is running constantly during summer months and will barely stay at about 42-45. You must be living right. Quit complaining! I think he's bragging. Lol,

RE: Honda 2000 in generator compartment with exhaust?

Thanks Dave17352, I actually just read your post when I did a search on this site! Very cool solution for you. I'm sort of rethinking this though and may just end up purchasing an original generator meant for my camper (Onan Camp power 2800) That way I'll just push a button in the camper since it's all prewired and plumbed for the propane. Thanks again! Daki Pushing a button is nice but does it outweigh the quiet,reliability and efficiency of the H 2000? Not to mention the cost difference between the two. I think not.

RE: Anyone use Tracfone with BYOP?

Just a word of caution about any dealings you might have with Tracfone. They are fine and you probably will not have any performance issues with the product. BUT if you ever need assistance from their customer no service GOD HELP YOU cause you will need it. I know this is not the info you were asking about and it is totally off topic,my apologies.

RE: selling iphone4

Thanks all for the info. I am off to Verizon tomorrow and will see what they offer. According to info i saw on Engadget.com they are offering a $200 gift card for an Iphone4 with the purchase of an Iphone6. If they do i will leave it with them and not mess with Ebay or Craigslist.

RE: Swan Song Aftermath

I had to double check, yup Im in the Truck Camper section of RV forum. I looked and there is not a Motel/Hotel camping forum nor a Bed & Breakfast forum on RV.NET that this might be better placed. Though I do appreciate your enthusiasm & enjoyment of your decisions I am curious why you feel compelled to related your non TC experiences here and indeed often the merits of them verses using a Truck Camper? Agreed. Sure doesn't get more insensitive than these 2 posts. :R X2

RE: Genny questions and Parallel Hondas

I currently have two Honda eu2000i's a parallel cable and extended run fuel tank. I have been considering upgrading to a fiver but the generator is an issue. I am not interested in a propane powered Onan that most RV's come with. From what I have saw I would have to get a toyhauler to get a gas powered one, which I don't want. First question does anyone know if a gas powered genny is an available option or can be retrofitted to a fiver? I don't know where you would mount the gas tank? Maybe a fuel cell next to the genny? Second since I already own two Hondas, has anyone put three in parallel? This would give me 6000W surge and 5400W running which would be plenty. I would have to splice into the parallel cable to go over to the third unit but this wouldn't be a problem. I would also have to change the plumbing on my BERG tank which wouldn't be an issue either. What do you think? $1000 for another Honda is way cheaper than a 5500W Onan and if I can't run it on gas I don't want it anyway. My other option is that I also have a Yamaha 4500W. I bought it originally for use with my travel trailer but found that it was too heavy to move around. With the B&W companion in the back of my truck there is no room for this generator in front of the hitch and I think it may be too tall to store behind the hitch. I might could put a heavy slide out draw in one of the side storage bays and pull it out when I wanted to use it. Wonder if I could parallel my Honda to my Yamaha as it's not big enough either? The other option is the 5500W Yamaha but they are high dollar and I already have all of these other gennies, plus I would have the same issue with "where do I keep it"? Any ideas or suggestions? Between not being able to find a fiver that will fit in my 13' barn door (with the 2nd A/C installed) to this genny issue I am about ready to keep what I have. Thanks I had a gas fired 7000 Onan on a $75k 38' Mountainaire fifthwheel. It worked fine till the POS Onan did what Onans do best and crapped out. I would forego the Onan and use the H/Y. BTW i feel the same about the rest of that POS Newmar called a coach. Went back to the factory 3 times in 2 years and was still junk when i gave up and sold it after 3 years of hell. On a separate note you mentioned you were about ready to keep what you have. If you are reasonably happy with your present RV and it is in good repair i would strongly advise you to keep what you have because there is no guarantee you will be so lucky next go round.
