RE: WiFi, and Cell Phone boosters and Internet antennas

Remember when we went RVing to get away from it all? Back in those days there was nothing to get away from. Just tv with an antenna on it I guess.

RE: Parking Light with Jumper

Unfortunately his was not a 15W bulb. I still think there is no reason to keep a light on all night. If you have a dog and let it out during the night you turn the light on and then off when done.

RE: Surge power protector- hard wire or portable?

I have the portable version and have had no problems with it. I dont keep it chained down or anything, it has been in bad weather without an issue. No issue for me plugging it in as I need to hook up the cord either to the pedestal or the protector and literally takes 5 extra seconds to do.

RE: Which dash cam to buy??

Just went to Amazon and read the negative reviews about Rexing...because that’s all there is! Perhaps I’m cautious because I sure am disappointed with the Garmin I bought last winter. It makes lots of mistakes. Not sure what you are looking at but when I go to Amz and look at my model it shows reviews from over 7k folks 5 star - 65% 4 star - 21% 3 star - 4$ 2 star - 3% 1 star - 7%

RE: Those with auto leveling systems

I dont have the leveling system but I am sure the next one will. So do you guys put the between tires chocks in? or do you just use chocks on the ground in front and rear of the tires. I was just thinking of my normal routine, chocks between the tires and then in front and read of the tires. Just wondering what happens if the leveling system raises the tires off the ground and what happens when you want to hook back up how you do it.

RE: Parking Light with Jumper

This last camping trip the guy across from me had to bring out his homemade pvc light pole and plug it in to light up everyone's area. I dont get it

RE: Steps recommendations

Yes they are very stable and do not wobble. My 5th wheels factory steps were only three steps the Glo Steps are four. The rise is not as high as the factory step and is somewhat adjustable as well. They also can be set to accommodate uneven ground. They can be deployed in tight spaces like a storage yard. They also stay outside the RV where they belong and not folded up into the RV. I got them because I suffered several strokes and have weakness and balance issues. I felt very nervous going up and down the factory steps. With the Glo Steps I do not have such a fear of falling. We had a 15 year old Cocker Spaniel. He couldn't go up or down the factory steps but he handled the Glo Steps just fine. I have nothing but praise for these steps because they truly did make a difference for me. Thanks for the explanation. I could not have the solid unit that folds up into the rv as mine is in a storage lot and there is not enough room for that. I also dont like the fact if you fold them up wet or dirty that all goes into the rv. Sounds like folks have nothing but good to say on the glo steps.

RE: Steps recommendations

Is the reason folks get the new steps like the Glo steps is because they make contact with the ground and are less wobbly? For the ones that came with my diver I put the leveling blocks under the steps but just to take the wobble out of the fiver when going up or down them. I was just curious as to the reason why folks change. I have seen them and they do look nice.

RE: proper hook up procedure?

Harbor Freight makes big rubber chocks that are the same as the more expensive ones. I took a small level and glued it to a small magnet I had and keep that in the side compartment where the propane is and stuck to the frame. After I unhitch and pull the truck away I open the compartment and turn the whole magnet and level it until its level, or just about - thats where I know I need to be when raising the front legs to hook back up. Its cheap and simple and takes the guess work out of it. Then I just go about and do my normal front to back routine etc... Also I use chocks as everyone else has mentioned.

RE: Hitch choice

For me I went with an air ride hitch by Trailersaver the BD3 model. I don't think I would ever go back to a solid hitch after owning this one for a while. Previously I had a Reese which worked fine but then upgraded later on and dont regret it.

RE: Traveling with a Residential Fridge?

A residential fridge is a huge cost savings for the manufacturer. Think about it. No LP lines to run to it. No 12V power needed. So no 12V lines to run to it. They now need to add an inverter which probably costs more than just some black pipe and wire.

RE: Dumping Tanks in an Empty Full Service Site

At Ohio State parks its the same price, full hook up or electric only. This is so not true. The cost of a FHU is always more. Rates

Cell Booster Question

So I am in the market for a cell phone booster when out in the fringes of reception. I know it needs some signal to amplify it but my question is that after reading reviews I see the range that it amplifies seems to be quite short on a lot of them. A lot of reviews are saying a foot or inches away from the internal antenna. This seems to be for all of them knockoffs and weboost as well. I was hoping for something that boosted the range a little more as too outside the trailer as well. So for those of you that have them, what is the real world review that you can share on the range?

RE: Renogy 12V 100W Panel on Sale - 87.00

Sorry guys that its a higher priced or sold out now. Trust me when I first posted this it was 87 as I checked it out myself, but this could have been a 1 day deal. I dont work for amz or the manufacturer, I just saw it on my daily deal site and thought it might help someone out who was looking.

RE: camp ground cable into

I have never seen a TV without a coax cable hookup, a monitor yes but never on a TV. Strange.

RE: Campspreading

I have never seen a CG where the "property lines" where well enough defined to fight over it. Doesn't the site go from power pedestal to power pedestal?

RE: Campspreading

This only happens to me at a certain state park I go to. The site I reserve is very large and the one next to me is just a sliver of land next to the road. The last time there a group came and unloaded their gear and started to setup (tents). The next time I came out they were setup like 10ft from my fire pit so I told them they were about 20ft on my side. I told them I know their site is small and I dont mind them coming over on mine a bit but they need to move over. I told the the sites usually go from power pedestal to power pedestal. They didnt know and moved their stuff. They were over on my side somewhat but it didnt matter to me and we all had a good time.

RE: Need Sling TV while traveling. What's the best way?

I don't think so. If I'm not mistaken, you need good WiFi on both ends. Im not sure what you mean by the above statement. The recording is done by Sling on their server. You just go into the guide and set it up to record the show - It is then saved at Sling. You can watch it whenever you want provided you have a good signal.
