RE: Musk Starlink now has a new problem

We have Starlink and travel extensively with it. When we can get into an open cell, it's been great - we haven't had any issues dealing with obstructions, even up in the mountains with lots of trees around. Photo from outside of Estes Park, CO, with the dish outlined by a red star. https://imgur.com/h7xkq7K.jpg width=640 The biggest issue is just finding open cells - we can only use it at approximately 40% of our campsites. When it works, we can expect 150+Mbps down, 30+Mbps up, and low latency without any bandwidth caps. I've used it as much as 2TB/mo. We've had it in rain, snow, and heavy thunderstorms and I don't recall any outages. We're paying almost $100/mo whether we can use it or not, but it's just another tool in the arsenal of AT&T, Verizon, etc we carry to make a living (working remotely) out here. Based on my experience with it, the Verge's issues probably had more to do with their specific cell than obstructions. It is beta, afterall. Can you explain what a "open cells" and why it only works at 40% of the campsites just a bit broader? Trying to understand. :)

RE: Towing up grades with "M" and 1 gears

Okay great responses thus far. Sounds like tow/haul really makes things easier than decades back. :)

Towing up grades with "M" and 1 gears

So I have several coaches, but this will be my first attempt pulling a TT up a steeper mountain grade. I'm towing with a 1 ton Chevy express 3500. I'm a bit "confused" on just how to use this transmission. P-R-N-D-M-1 are the gears. So I know what gear 1 is. But the big question is around the M gear. I've been told to go to M 3 for towing up / down grades. But I'd like a bit more input than just one random stranger. So I came here to have input from several random strangers. :) I have 2 examples and would like to know what YOU would do if you were driving with my gearset. 1) Driving along, minding your own business, tow button depressed on the dash. Brake controller all good. Suddenly you see one of those yellow signs with a truck going downhill. 7% grade for the next 4 miles. What do you do with speed/gears/etc.? 2) At the bottom of the long hill, you realize you left your wallet at the gas station 10 miles back. Now you turn around and have to drive up 7% for 4 miles. What do you do with speed/gears/etc.?

RE: Old Vs New Rig

I'd redo the old. Until these MFG's start making a better product out of Indiana, I'd go on a buy strike.
