RE: Has anyone had a run in with any WILD animals?

RE: Fire Extinguishers!

RE: What Percentage of RV Parks are Cat Friendly?

It largely depends on the cat. I've seen many who stick close to home on their own. Very few tolerate leashes. Whether you get reported depends on who's around. The only time you could, in general, get "reported" is if you have a cat that roams off leash. Most parks allow pets, including cats, but many parks hold cats to the same leash rules as dogs. We have full timed with our cat for 6 years. He goes out on a leash only. some people let their cats out in an enclosure, when they are around to watch over them. Biggest issue we have is when they make us stay in the "pet" section which means we are surrounded by dogs, and not all of them are always on a leash. Plus the dogs go nuts when a cat is around. Sue

RE: Pinnacle National Monument - 40 Ft RV Parking?

We camped there and saw quite a few motorhomes. You should be ok I would think.

RE: Viair 12 volt portable air compressor

I'm new at this and trying to learn. (We don't even have our TT home yet or a TV to pull it. lol) Why do you need the portable when you carry a 120V? And do you use the 120v much? For what purposes? Just curious. We are trying to get an inventory together of what to take with us. Thanks, Michael And some of us have 10 tires or more, plus the air hitch and the airsprings on the truck that need adjustment.

RE: Travel Report: Big Bend National Park

We were actually amazed when we were there in December how much better cell coverage is now than it used to be. We had ATT in much of the park, and Verizon in more areas than we expected. We were told by locals that someone put up a private tower and that is helping. Sue

RE: Favorite App for RV'n

I held off for a long time but I finally broke down and bought the $10 Allstays Camp & RVs app. We used a bunch of different apps but haven't found any nearly as useful as this one. GasBuddy is also good for saving a little bit of money; though, I'll be honest- I'm looking for convenience over price when we are traveling through. Another vote for allstays. best $10 I ever spent. I tell everyone about it. you can check out their website version for free but the app is well worth the money. it is map based with your actual location and shows, among other things: campgrounds rest stops truck stops Big Box stores like Costco, Walmart (and whether you can overnight there) Cracker Barrel Sporting goods stores Low Clearance Bridges It is my Go To app for so many things.

RE: Dental care

We carry our Xrays on a thumb drive, both the latest bite-wings and our full mouth "once every 5 years". Whenever we have Xrays done we ask them to put them on the drive or email them to us. We look on Yelp to find a dentist wherever we happen to be. Sometimes a dentist will want to take their own XRays but we have never been charged for it. they know our insurance won't cover it. We do have to stress that we want a cleaning and not a "first time patient" appointment. If they won't accommodate that we move on to the next one on the list. sometimes we have had to have both types of appointments in the same visit, but we were only charged $25 so it wasn't too bad. Barb, what dentist do you use in Mesa? Sue

RE: Passport America

Its a gimmick for both parties. If it was a very good one, you would see more members on both sides. We choose not to be one. Max I disagree that it is a gimmick. If you, as a park owner, offer PPA for your slow times, you entice people to stay who might not have stayed without the discount, If you are filling a spot that would have stayed empty, you win, If I get it for half price, I win too. If I like the place, I might stay on my way through next time, even if I can't get half price. Once again, you win, and I stay at a place I am familiar with. As a park owner, I don't see the down side- filling spots that would have been empty anyway. As a bonus, if people like it and put reviews out there stating that, you win again. Unless you are full all the time anyway.... Sue

RE: Newfoundland

The ferry to Labrador was just a couple of hours. it would have been a nice trip if it hadn't been cold and rainy. One note of caution. We went on the ferry as Stand By, with no reservation, which wasn't a problem but when we tried to book the return trip online we discovered that a truck as big as ours is automatically classified as Commercial and the number of commercial trucks is limited on each crossing. all commercial spots were booked for 4 DAYS! Hubby did some fast talking, had to show our receipt that said we werent designated Commerical on the original trip. They did let us go, but we almost got stuck there for days! Sue

RE: Yosemite National Park

BTW no matter how close to the park you get it is a long drive into the valley. We put over 500 miles on the car just into the park over the 2 weeks and speed limits are low inside the park along with the time of year you mention there are a lot of cars in there. Boy is that ever true. As great as the park is, that drive in and out got old fast! Sue

RE: Travelling with Cats that like the outdoors

Our cat has traveled with us full time for 5 years. While driving he is crated in the truck. He is never in the rig when the slides move. He has a tag with our cell and our daughters cell (in case we are somewhere with no signal). We have a sign at the door with his picture that states "kitty inside" with our phone number for emergencies. He goes out on a harness but only when we are out there. I also never let him actually walk out the door on his own 4 legs. we always carry him, so he doesn't start to think its ok to just walk ouside whenever he wants. Sue

RE: Passport America

We have also had it for years. even in AZ in the winter we can find places to use it. The place we are staying at mow in Tucson accepted it for 3 nights, and we booked an entire week at a resort in Mesa in January at the PPA rate. I do find the notes section to be reasonably accurate but I have also found some flexibility depending on how full the park is. Sue

RE: Newfoundland

We took just the truck over on the ferry to Labrador and spent the night in a hotel. Now we can say we've been there. Scenery was great, as was the museum in Red Bay. Sue

RE: cell reception options

there's a number you call that updates towers..for example... Verizon is *228..it does it automatic. Never heard of that. Googling shows it ranges from unnecessary to dangerous on 4G phones. Verizon website says it is for 3g phones not for 4g phones. I have a 3g phone and travel full time so I use it often.

RE: Truck Camp vs Travel Trailer vs Fifth Wheel vs Motorhome

We have a combination. We live in our 5th wheel, but bought a truck camper to take to AK this summer- then decided to keep it, so we now have a "summer home". We spent 4 months in it and the only thing we really missed were the recliners. We'll use the TC next summer to go get our boat from MI and bring it to AZ. If we weren't "houseless" we would be happy to be in the TC for all our travels.

RE: facetime issues

let me preface i have android NOT iphone but cellular is NOT wifi yes its wireless but its not wifi which is wireless fidelity networking my understanding is that "facetime" is a wifi only app, as it is video "voip", data networking not a regular phone call this would mean a WiFi connection for the internet i'm sure someone else will correct me , If im wrong I believe you are correct. At least with my older iphone, it has to be wi-fi. you can not use the data on your data plan to do facetime. I thought with the newer phones you can, but maybe not. And as mentioned, using the internet on the phone is not necessarily wi-fi.
