RE: Should I put my Mobley SIM in another hotspot when parked?

Even if your SIM is locked just unlock it. See this post for step by step instructions. DaveDoes this process still work? Has anyone done it recently?

RE: Hitch choice

I have the B&W Patriot Slider and been very happy with it, almost as smooth as silk except for the bad concrete highways. Solid hitch Dan But aint it kinna heavy? Weight shouldn't be a problem. If it is, some on this forum have suggested that when installing or removing the hitch, disconnect the head from the base, or alternatively, have some friends come over to help lift it, followed by some beer and male bonding. Other solutions are to get a winch from HF and attach it to a rafter in the garage and one fellow stated that he uses a forklift to remove his.

RE: What do I need

HERE is a very recent and interesting thread which should answer many of your questions.

RE: 5th wheel hitch

We have a 24' Mobile Scout (Sunnybrook) with a dry weight of 5429 lbs. We tow with a rail mount Andersen hitch. We are both in our late 70s with our health not so good, so the light weight, 43 lbs, was the reason we chose the Andersen. We've been very happy with it.

RE: Andersen Hitch questions

We have an 8' bed. We replaced our conventional rail-mount hitch with an Anderson rail-mount because of the weight difference. Other than setting the ball height on the hitch, no other changes were needed. Bed rail clearance is no problem. I've never had to make a 90 degree turn so I can't comment on that.

RE: ClimateRight 5,000 BTU Portable Air Conditioner

"Awesome! Can you connect and disconnect the RolliCool any time you want"? I would check Amazon reviews first. Me too, but there are none... RolliCool Mini-Split

RE: Where to buy new Diesel, Dave Smith in Idaho?

.. look for paying about 0.85 percent of factory MSRP sticker. I think you mean 85%.He does. He's just giving you a quick way to calculate the actual selling price. For example, MSRP = $1000 X .85 = $850, which is 85% of the MSRP.

RE: A drone while camping

Another thing many don't understand about drones. They can fly forward and backward and side to side without changing their orientation. So a drone facing forward and traveling backward could appear to be filming you when actually it's backing up for a wider view with the forward facing camera.

RE: A drone while camping

Some folks equate the desire to be alone to a "right" to privacy.

RE: A drone while camping

Most are registered with FAA with a government aircraft number. Shooting at one or shooting it down is a Federal Felony. 18 U.S.C. 32. While there has not been a reported prosecution, I would not try it. I love mine but it is a NO, NO to fly in Florida and Georgia State Parks along with most Federal controlled land.Actually, there have been prosecutions, 23 according to THIS SOURCE.

RE: A drone while camping

For those of you partial to blowing one out of the sky: The FAA considers unmanned aircraft of any size to be covered under Title 18 of the United States Code 32, which describes “sabotage to include destruction of any aircraft in the special aircraft jurisdiction of the United States.” Violation of this code carries a maximum prison sentence of 20 years. In other words, it’s illegal to shoot down any aircraft in the U.S., including a drone, according to federal law. And lest you decide that simply jamming or intercepting control of the offending drone might be more your style, know that the FCC considers any form of “jamming” or otherwise interfering with radio transmission to be a violation of the Communications Act of 1934. Between these two federal laws, most anti-drone technology on the market (including net guns and jamming guns) could put you into some legal hot water.

RE: Ok to leave the black water tank 1/2 full while in storage?

I accidentally did that once. It was mostly water which, during the cold weather, froze in the external drain pipe. Had to replace said pipe.
