RE: Hood Will Not Open On 2008 Nissan Versa

I can reach through the grill and move one latch to the left, but I can't figure out how to release the latch that releases the tension and allows the hood to pop up slightly.

RE: Hood Will Not Open On 2008 Nissan Versa

THANKS! I can go through the grill and reach the latch that is visible from when the hood slighlty pops up from the inside release. I move the latch to the left but the hood does not budge. There must be another latch that is not releasing.

Hood Will Not Open On 2008 Nissan Versa

Inside hood latch does not work to release the hood to be opened. Have Googled and pulled on the cable with pliers with no success. Any ideas? Thanks!

RE: Make Sure You Know what RV Prep Includes

WOW! Another BAD experience with Camper World! Has anyone had a good or semi good experience? I don't ever see any of my money going into their coffers!

RE: Camping World Parking

Everytime I read a post where Camping World is mentioned...there are problems. How does this company stay in business!

RE: Campgrounds in the Four Corners?

Check out Canyon de Chelly in Arizona. You can't be 100 miles away. Not only is this National Park worth a visit, but they have a campground there.

RE: WIFI hot spots

To follow up on a previous post as to speed; for what I do, email, Facebook, searching for local info, I found NO problem with the speed. In fact, it worked as good as the Millenicom hotspot I used before they went belly up.

RE: WIFI hot spots

ennajean...I made my purchase from information gleaned from this very forum. Just be sure you get the one that operates off of Verizon, NOT AT&T. Here is the one I ordered from WalMart: ZTE 288C LTE

RE: WIFI hot spots

For a recent trip out West I purchased the Straight Talk, verizon tower, Hotspot for under $100. I also purchased a 2 gig card for $25. We traveled through Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Utah and Colorado. The hotspot always functioned as it should. We used it for light surfing, facebook and email and in two weeks barely used 1 gig. That time has now expired (it was for 30 days), so next time I get ready to use it, I'll load 1 gig and be on my way for $15. To load I will either need to call or access the internet from another source. I used the internet to load the first card and it was painless. That's the way I'll load up the next one.

RE: real world fuel mileage

I drive a 2000 Winnebago Minnie Winnie V-10 and get from 8-11 MPG depending on conditions such as into the wind, flat land, hills, etc. I pull a 2008 Nissan Versa and don't notice much difference in MPG. When it's hot I also run the generator and A/C and there might be a little difference. Nothing to speak of. When everything works, what a way to travel. I'm not going to worry about pennies.

RE: HOW accessible is FREE WIFI while travelling?

After research I purchased the StraightTalk Hotspot that works from the Verizon Towers. Throughout our trip from East Texas, through New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Zion and Bryce in Utah, and the backroads of Colorado the unit always connected promptly and functioned as it should. Our use was Facebook, email and surfing for local information. The best part was that we barely used 1 gig. We are now back home and shortly our 30 days will run out. For our next trip we'll load another card; although probably not the 2 gig card I bought but a 1 gig. VERY PLEASED!

Other than Amazon and Beet Harvest, what's out there?

I'm aware of Camperforce at Amazon and the Sugar Beet Harvest in the north as excellent Workamping opportunities. They also ask for your time at about the same time of the year. What other, similar, opportunities exist?

RE: What brand of shocks have worked well for you?

Purchased Winnebago Minnie Winnie December 2011. Driving home to East Texas from Arizona had a lot of sway. Put Bilsteins on....best money I've ever spent on shocks!

Question On Setting Security On Straight Talk Hotspot

I recently purchased the StraightTalk ZTE288L (Verizon Towers) Hotspot. Installation of everything went well with the exception of setting the security settings. I've reread and reattempted the procedure per the instructions in the book and continue to get this message: The connection has timed out The server at is taking too long to respond. The site could be temporarily unavailable or too busy. Try again in a few moments. If you are unable to load any pages, check your computer's network connection. If your computer or network is protected by a firewall or proxy, make sure that Firefox is permitted to access the Web. I can get on the internet, and all seems to be working as it should, with this one exception. Any ideas? Thanks!

RE: Disappointed in roadside assistance

Why does Good Sam always want private messages? This is not the first time I've seen this approach from Good Same. The OP was courteous in his complaint. I'd like to see Good Sam handle situations in an open manner. The Good Sam approach does nothing to build any confidence with me!

RE: How do you monitor data usage with StraightTalk Hotspot?

Thanks riven1950. I must have misread the info. Thought the only way was to call StraightTalk. The hotspot should be in Friday. I'll check it out. Is it your experience that they keep the usage up to date and not several days behind? Thank you for your input.

How do you monitor data usage with StraightTalk Hotspot?

After some research, I've bitten the bullet and ordered a StraightTalk Hotspot that operates from the Verizon towers. I haven't located a way (other than a call to StraightTalk) to monitor total usage. Can anyone offer a suggestion? Thanks.
