RE: hot spots

We just got back from our trip and were up in Michigan UP and had plenty of areas with zero phone reception so no hot spot would work there. My advice is to see where you will be going a lot and if they have cell coverage, then you can go with what some of the other posters had mentioned. If there is no coverage then Starlink is about your only choice

RE: Best Hitch

I have the Trailersacer BD3 air hitch and would not be without it after having a standard hard mounted hitch. It takes a lot of the bounce that would otherwise be transferred to the truck.

RE: sanitizing fresh tanks - basic question

Here is my routine 1. pour the bleach in the hose 2. run the water through the hose and fill the tank 3. run all the faucets and toilet and so on 4. let this all sit 8-24 hours 5. I open up all the faucets and let the solution run through until the tank is empty. 6. I refill the tank then open up all faucets and let it run through until the tank is empty 7. I repeat the fill/drain again Yes it uses a lot of water to do this 5.

RE: Cleaning the awning

Open the awning and spray it down with the hose Spray Tilex on it and roll it up Let it sit for about 30 minutes or so, open it up and spray it down again and it will be clean, no scrubbing needed

RE: WIFI Light Switch

I guess I need to ask the very first question and that is - will you have internet and a router with you wherever you go camping? If you do then great - I think any wifi switch would work provided its able to fit into the outlet. A lot of them are big and chunky and you might not have the room for them to fit in

RE: New battery cost.

And then they wonder why members drop off from these forums

RE: New battery cost.

I think a lot of folks on this thread are talking about a dual purpose battery from places like Walmart and Oreily. (Starting and deep cell) If you are looking for a true deep cell battery, Renogy has one on sale now from Amazon. Its a deep cell 100 amp hour AGM battery for 200 Link For a little less money, this one is a highy rated true deep cell battery Link

RE: Electric TT

Its just a gimmick in my opinion. Even if it does finally get built it will be way overpriced.

RE: Using a Cpap in my AF 27-5

I've never heard if a jackery before but they sound neat but for $600 and up they better work. but how many amp hours do the various ones provide. Yes, they have some neat features however. bumpy However what? The Jackery was just used as an example, there are many others out there for cheaper and I was just giving an example of what can be used. I have used a smaller battery on my Resmed 10 that lasted 8hrs on long flights without a problem of course without the humidifier and heated tube on. You can easily figure out the amp hours they produce.

RE: Using a Cpap in my AF 27-5

I guess it depends on how long you will be boondocking. As others have said just dont use the heated hose and humidifier. You can also buy an external battery pack like Jackery to plug into that should be good for a few days

RE: Looking at class c questions on maintenance

Dealers and shops do not have the space for Class C over certain length. Most do it themselves or learn how to do their own oil change. It helps to be handy. I am handy but was more interested when on the road travelling. The rig I am looking at is relatively small and in the 23-25ft area. The last thing I want to do is an oil change in some campground or if something else breaks that you cannot fix yourself and need to take it somewhere to be repaired.

RE: Traveling with Propane on

This wasn't true for us when we had our previous MH's. We ran the furnace when travelling in winter to keep the whole MH warm and pipes from freezing. We've also used hot water while en route. I always turned these things off when fueling however. I was never comfortable with an open flame while fueling however small the risk. I think that you are in a very small minority of folks who travel with a furnace and hot water on.

RE: Looking at class c questions on maintenance

I know I can change it myself. I was actually wondering where people go when they are out on a trip and needed to have some service done, like an oil change for example. I know if something is rv related I would need to go to an rv shop

Looking at class c questions on maintenance

Hello, we currently have a fiver but lately have been looking at smaller class c around the 25ft length. My question is having to do with oil changes and was wondering - for example if it was a Ford powered rv do you take it to the ford dealer for oil changes? Are they generally able to work on these types of vehicles without a problem?

RE: Empty parks with no open sites.

It seems like everyone is upset because they can't get the site they wanted or the days they wanted. The truth is the campgrounds don't care. Here in Ohio if you book a site you pay for it at the time of booking. If you don't show up - they don't care as they already got paid. It actually works out better in their favor as you are not using electric, water, sewer, facilities etc... They closed the loophole of people reserving a site for a week only to then change their reservations and only take the weekend days. Now you can't modify your reservation, you can cancel it, but it cancels the entire reservation and then becomes available again to the general public and you can't book it again for like 15 minutes. So you might get it or someone else might have already booked it. There are lots of reasons why a site might be booked but empty. Family emergencies come up, breakdowns, etc... I would be totally pissed if I had a reservation but for some reason could not make it the first day due to some unforeseen circumstances and show up the following day only to see someone else on my site because it was rebooked.

RE: Portable air conditioner

We use one occasionally in our fifth wheel when the temps are really high outside to help cool. We have a 30 amp unit with a 15K ac. We have the single hose unit although I heard the 2 hose ones are better, I got a great deal on clearance for this one so purchased it. I fashioned some wood to be the same contour as one of the side windows that the hose goes into. I also run a heavy duty extension cord through the slide seal from the portable unit to the pedestal. It does help out quite a bit
