RE: Verizon Navigation and Data usage

It would be hard for me to believe that the Uconnect is going to give you enough free data to tether your iPad and use it for anything practical, so I would check out the cost. I use my iPad data for many other things so I wouldn't give up my data plan. In fact I just went from $30 for 2gig to $40 for 4gig. Canada is the trickiest part. No data up there for all practical purposes.

RE: Verizon Navigation and Data usage

our Ford system is pretty good for directing us some place, but when we are towing, especially someplace we've never been, I (the passenger) always have the iPad up and running in map mode. I just use basic google maps and what it gives me is satellite view and street view so i can see the actual parking lot. I don't think the built in GPSs will give you satellite view. since we are headed thru Canada again this summer up to Alaska, I might check into that co-pilot map for us. Sue Sue

RE: Decent RV Campground from about Santa Barbara to Indio, CA?

Caliente Springs In Desert Hot Springs. 4 hot tubs of varying temperatures and two beautiful pools. Very nice park, accepts Passport Amercia. Stayed at Indian Waters too, but Caliente Springs has them beat.

RE: Backing up whole computer

Many newer computers don't even have a DVD drive any more. Our new Acer doesn't. Sue

RE: Verizon Navigation and Data usage

Navigation is the number one cause of data use on my ipad, but since that's what i bought it for, I don't mind so much. When we're towing, and DH says "can I get into that gas station ahead?" It's great that I know the answer! Sue

RE: Backing up whole computer

Yeah, and it REALLY is a good idea to back everything up. our Dell running windows XP died with no warning. UGH. We lost all our emails etc etc. we had backed everything up, but not recently. We had to buy a new computer and Microsoft walked us through (actually, they remoted in and did it) moving everything from the old hard drive to the new one. I have a new routine. periodic backing up is great but now I have a flash drive and every week or so I load my recent pictures on it. I can delete them when a back up is done. I also now save my excel spreadsheets to google so I don't lose my data. It took me forever to straighten it all out.

RE: John Pennekamp State Park

Curry hammock doesn't have great swimming but it has a nice beach, lots of kiters to watch, kayaking that can be done, a bike path that goes all the way into town, nearby restaurants etc etc We stayed about 10 days there and 2 weeks at pennekamp. They were both fine for exploring the areas they are in. sue

RE: Florida Keys Camping - Part #2

There are very few beaches in the keys. When I asked about a waterfront site at Jolly Roger they said I'd pretty much have To wait for someone to die....they are booked every year by the same people. Being waterfront has its own issues. In the keys, wind is one of them, plus the salt spray rusts everything. We stayed at Knights key as well. We also preferred jolly roger. Nice park, friendly people. I love the Sunset Bar too, but we just drove there. Bahia Honda would be great. IF you can get a spot. We tried for months, unsuccessfully.

RE: Florida Keys Camping, any recommendation?

RV parks are not $150 a night if you book for a month so it's not a fair comparison to the monthly rate of a condo. about the Zodiac- we discovered that winter in the keys is pretty windy which meant ours didn't get in the water very much. Sue

RE: Removing a TS3 Trailer Saver from my truck bed

We unbolt it and leave the whole hitch on the pinbox when we need to. sue

RE: Florida Keys Camping, any recommendation?

Jolly Roger is also our favorite. The problem that you are having with Bahia holds true for the other state parks too. Plus, even if you can get a cancelation, it will usually only be for a few days or a week- a far cry from spending the winter there. We tried for months, two of us, multiple laptops etc and were only able to get one reservation at a state park in the keys. Good luck with it

RE: Using camper when not on truck

Thanks everyone, You set my mind at ease. Although many campgrounds don't allow you to take the camper off the truck, it's nice to know its ok to do it if it's allowed. Sue

Using camper when not on truck

Not sure if I imagined this but I think someone said that the Lance owners manual says that we should Not use the camper when it's not on the truck? Is that true? Does it make sense, or do people ignore it and do it anyway? Thanks

RE: Tecopa Hot Springs and Death Valley

We stayed in Tecopa Hot Springs. Some of the campgrounds have private room hot springs for you to use, included in your camping rate. Again, no clothing but you have the room to yourself. We enjoyed it. Because of all the minerals in the water they suggest you bring your drinking water. sue

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2014

We used the app " Citimaps to go" in Canada. Download the maps when you have wifi and it works with the GPS on the phone and iPad. sue

RE: Streaming video on the road

streaming will just make it worse for everyone. I wish more people would take this into consideration.

RE: DRV 43 footers - Dallas and others - Actual purchase prices?

The Mobile Suites are built using the exact same frame as the Elite Suites. DRV would have put a rating of 20,000 lbs on our MS if we had wanted. The Elite Suites has granite counters and stairs, a better quality carpet, a Fiberglass roof, a taller, straight ceiling, not tapered, and a few less important differences. The point being made was that now the Mobile Suites has the straight roof and the fiberglass roof and an upgraded carpet, but still does not have the granite. The differences between the two are getting fewer. We've been very happy with the quality of our mobile suites and also don't see the added value in the Elite. any Elite upgrades you want, you can get- if you order one made. sue

RE: Question about Alaska and storm windows

Thanks everyone! And yes, the camper came with single pane windows and we were looking at adding an actual storm window, not removing the existing windows to put in double pane windows. I think we'll skip it for this year at least. Thanks again, Sue

Question about Alaska and storm windows

Hi, We just got a 2005 Lance 1181, and it doesn't have storm windows. 1st question is, We have heard that we can install them now, is that true? and second, we are headed to Alaska for the summer. would it be worth our while to install them if it is possible? Thanks for any opinions! Sue

RE: Hey. Is there space left in the desert?

plenty of room- we'll be leaving next week :) Make sure you eat at Silly Al's while you are here! As his sign says, if you haven't eaten at Al's you haven't been to Quartzsite! Yummy!
