RE: Satellite vs WiFi TV service

From someone who has both a jet-pack Mifi as well as Dish. We full time so it is to our advantage to also have a Wilson signal booster. Right now we are in a weak signal area and w/o the booster we would be out of luck. I don't think even with the signal booster we could stream very well from this location.

RE: 16' Keystone Passport cold weather camping Q

As someone who has spent more than his share of single digit TT living I have never had a problem with the drain tubes. I'm sure they freeze solid but I have never had an occasion to drain in freezing weather. I have other posts that cover cold weather living in a TT.

RE: Newbies searching for travel trailer?

It would be interesting to find out how many posters on this subject are year round full timers in cold climates. As I stated before DW and I spent the first 3 years in single digits so it can be done. Just choose a rig that has a proven record of 4 season liveability. Best of luck in your search.

RE: So Long

I'm glad you are back OB. Open forums should be just that - open. I'm on private web sites which do limit free speech I just don't think rv.net should be one of them. Apologies to those who have had their feeling hurt, the obvious solution - don't continue to read what offends you.

Thanks, Dick I hope that it was of his own accord.

RE: Newbies searching for travel trailer?

I've met several who have jobs that require travel in all sorts of weather. There are 4 season TT's out there as we have one. 2004 28RL Alpenlite. The company is no longer in business but I can not believe there are not 4 season rigs still being built. Just see if the dump valves are exposed, that generally means it is not all season as the valves will surely freeze unless protected. BTW the wife and I have been living in the above unit since driving it off the lot in 2004. Our first three winters were in temps of less than 10 for days at a time (yes, the propane bills were a little much) but we stayed warm.

RE: Do you have experience with cell phone boosters?

We also use a Wilson with a truckers antenna. Has worked well for us doing our coast to coast tour.

RE: Propane tank mishap

I'm certified to pump propane and I still don't like to fill the built in tanks on motor homes. Please, I'm not looking to start a word war, but the tanks on commercial vehicles, for the most part, are out in the open and in my opinion are safer to fill (easier too).

RE: Anode Rod Rusted Tight

Suburban tank replaced in January this year. This week took out the anode to check and had to use a cheater. I guess the water is a lot harder than I thought. BTW the RV sat for three months w/o being used. I need to buy another anode for backup.

RE: Closed posts

We no longer Workkamp as our lifestyle has changed to a strictly volunteer position. Having done both styles we no longer feel the need of a "regular" job which was the case with our Workkamping positions. Dianne thank you for all you do and I hope this forum continues as I believe it fills a good purpose.

RE: Good customer service response from Northwood

Our Northwoods product had a leak in the non pressurized fresh water fill system a clamp fixed the problem at the tank.

RE: Mopping up toilet water at 3 am!

Ours was a low water pressure issue. Wound up by replacing toilet.

RE: Frustration with Dish Tailgater and my Big Country 3650RL

My experience with the Tailgater would only allow a single RG6 from the Taigater to the receiver with NO additional connectors. When I contacted DISH about using extensions the response was "Not approved" the signal loss at each connector will cause severe deterioration of the signal.

RE: Why did you stop full time rving?

DW and I started the full time route in 04 and are still going strong. BTW we are in our mid 70's. The only regret that I have is this, consider how many miles you are going to put on your towing vehicle (it doesn't matter what) and see what the cost difference is between a 6mpg Class A towing a 40mpg towed. Then as we did, look at the cost of a Burb towing a 30' trailer getting 10mpg and maybe 15mpg driving around looking at the sights. Fuel wise for us a Class A Diesel pusher would have made more sense. Just a thought from a 55+ year RVer.

RE: Water Regulaters in Motor Home

I also have mine set at 55 the park pressure here is 80. All hookups are tagged with a high pressure warning.

RE: 2008 GM 6liter.

Presently have a 08 2500 Burb with a 6.0. It works great towing a 28' Alpenlite.

RE: jump starter et.al.

I carry a 2nd battery in a battery holder in my engine compartment, gives me peace of mind.

RE: Washington State 210 day law, does it exist?

I'm not sure for all the state as in Franklin county which is adjacent to Benton county Franklin allows long term stays (years). The city of Pasco which is in Franklin county did not allow RV's to be parked in mobile home parks, the park owners took the city to court and the law was overturned. Right now in Franklin county if the park owner allows long stay RV's the city nor the county says anything against the practice.
