RE: Portable ice maker for RV.

Best camping device ever. We set up ours first thing after the trailer. The water it holds is enough tomake ice all weekend. To avoid the "soft" ice thing we take it out of the maker and put it into the freezer which seems to make it last longer. we bouhghtours at walmart for like 80 dollars.

RE: Painfully slow internet

Campground WiFi is snail slow with over a minute to load pages. Anyway to speed it up? I see all kinds of posts with wifi issues. What are you using the wifi for? if it is for streaming tv or such there are other ways to do this that eliminate the wifi altogether. I use a cell phone with a subscription to HULU on my phone. I can screen cast this to my tv via a poku stick. 1. on the tv with the roku set it up so it accepts all devices wanting to "cast" 2. find the way to turn on screen casting/mirroring or whatever you phone calls it. 3. When the casting window comes up select your roku device on you smart phone. 4. ON the tv the roku will try to create a network and a popup will come up asking to setup a network or continue. Select continue. Now you can watch hulu or whatever is on your phone on the TV.

RE: Thinking about investing in Crypto currency?

you'd probably be better off mining crypto. Basically provide a source for the transactions to take place and charge or collect a fee. I am using PI https://minepi.com/ so far no cost on my part. as yet no payoff either.

RE: Most expensive camp chair!

All of the Yeti brand name stuff I have I have acquired for free. I have won a couple of tumblers and a cooler in drawings that the entry did not cost anything. Yes they are great at what they do but I would not spend the money for them.

RE: Reserveamerica

Did you get the reservation after being on hold for 1:18:40? I do as much online as possible because of the lack of customer service for many types of businesses. So true! Because so many are working from home, you can't get any customer service or tech support to call you. They are using their personal cellphones or personal landlines and they don't want to have their personal phone numbers. I've been dealing with Whynter Appliances since May 4, on a non-functional wine fridge. Tech support will only deal with me on an email basis. I have tried calling but after 2 hours on hold, they disconnect me. One email told me to remove the control board but no instructions on how to do that. I emailed back saying it would have been nice if they had told me how to do that. 4 days later, I finally get the instructions. It takes 3-4 days for tech support to reply to my emails. Now this week, after supplying them with pics of the board, I haven't received any communication nor are they answering the phone. This is the kinda of thing that's going on now. So ReserveAmerica isn't so bad. There is zero reason these days for a remote worker to have to call from their own cell number. Even before all the coronavirus stuff, I worked from home 1-2 days a week. I have an app on my cell phone that links it to my office phone. When I want to call someone, I do it through the app and it appears on the other end as coming from my office number. These days, if a company can't figure out how to make working remotely seamless and no different than working in an office, well, that's a management problem. My desk phone at work is tied to my laptop. I can answer my desk phone via my laptop with video if needed from anywhere I can get internet access so no need for remote workers to use their own phones.

RE: PROPANE on the cheap

propane from my local conserv who supplied my house was $1.59 I only know that because I made the buyer of my house pay for the propane that was in the tank. A 500 gallon tank at 70% full was worth pretty close to $600 for me. I could fill up my trailer tanks at their facility for the same price.

RE: Do you use glass plates ?

We looked at corell or melamine for our trailer I can't recall which one of them it is but one was not microwave safe. I just eat off them so I'm not the expert on which. She who ust be obeyed picked out the dishes.

RE: Lighting suggestions for rv building

Use LED lighting. Much brighter less cost to run.

I use an app called trucker path. Height is taken into consideration when routes are planned. I also use it to verify that google maps is doing the same sort of thing.

RE: No 12V power to prewired back up camera

I went to install a backup camera to my Forest River flagstaff TT that is only 10 months old. I found thet there wasn't any 12V power to the preinstalled/wired furion bracket. I checked every where and couldn't get power. I didn't check the fuse's I will tomorrow. Is there a switch or or could it be something else. I think it should be hot as soon as the battery is turned on. The camera runs off the marker lights. In many newer vehicles with automatic lights you will have to manually turn on the running lights which will power the camera.

RE: Don't come to Massachusetts

Everywhere they are closing schools for 2 weeks or more. Teachers should set up school classes on the LOCAL TV channels, or PBS, so kids can still learn during this virus shut down. Everybody has a television, or 2, or 3 of them. Teachers can at least do 1/2 hour classes in math, reading, science, etc. Pre-record and they can tune in 24/7. Give the kids homework, and it will keep them busy while off school. Get a schedule of classes posted. Governor's and schools need to get this set up. Many schools already have some form of online learning. Problem is in rural areas where not everyone has access to the internet. I know the town I live in has limited internet outside of town. But the library has it. Mcdonalds has it but with limits on dining in may not be open, or just war chalk someplace that has an open wifi.

RE: Any Return on Investment?

It's routine maintenance I would expect it but not pay more for it.

RE: Xchocks question

RE: Would You Camp at a Place Like This??

I would not use it. If it's the same price as the KOA with all the amenities, I'll take the KOA. Now if the price were half that of the KOA I would use it. I mostly stay at COE campgrounds anyway and don't need or want to pay for the pool and arcade or onsite store. Plus with my America the Beautiful pass I pay about half the going rate of COE campgrounds.

RE: Traveling in a group— How do you handle it?

This same sort of thing happens with groups of motorcycles. There is usually three of us on the bikes. Me, my wife, and my son. We each like to ride a bit differently and will sometimes get separated. I'll usually stick with my wife but we just tell my son we'll meet up with him at our destination. My wife and I have a helmet communications system that can use bluetooth or our cell phones for a longer distance of communications. I can be ahead and let her know of any road hazards or traffic. Or I can call my son who is probably waiting at the appointed meet up spot. When we camp with friends it's pretty much "We'll see you at the campground"

RE: Is dash cam evidence allowed in an investigation

Funny I read this post yesterday and just last night as I was babysitting my granddaughter while my son went to the doctor, my son called me on his way home to tell me that he was delayed because he was a witness to an accident. He captured it on his dashcam and mentioned it to the officer. The officer took his memory card form the dashcam as evidence. So now he has to buy a new memory card. My dashcam on the other hand allows a wifi connection to my smartphone so I can transfer the video file to my smartphone and then do what ever with it. Like email it to the officer. The officer aint going to go for that. Its a chain of evidence thing. He'll get his card back (may have to be a pest in some places), but it'll be a while. Hardly worth the effort when a micro sd card is so inexpensive nowadays. Same thing happened to another camera we had in my wife's store when someone broke in. The officer took the sd card and we never saw it again. At least this time the video was also uploaded to my phone.
