RE: RV 760 LMT

As said, set it to another location near your home. They can get close but not to your house.

RE: Problems with Class Bs used as second cars where restricted.

The problem is that even if it slips by at the beginning, sooner or later someone is going to come into the HOA looking to buy and when told that their RV is not permitted, they will come back and say - "Well, how come there is an RV owned by one of your residents now?". Then it will be "Oh really, where?" - and yours will be pointed out and then they come and say get rid of it or move. Be honest and direct up front and any agreement that is made has to be in writing with the stipulation that the agreement holds until you sell the condo, house, or whatever.

RE: CoPilot Premium USA - Black Friday

When I bought it, it was $9.99 - full price. It gets reduced around holiday weekends. The $2.99 is the lowest it has been.

RE: Now that I have a smart phone..do I even need a GPS device?

Through "Black Friday" the CoPilot App Premium is just $2.99 for Android or IOS. This is a $7 savings from the regular price and the lowest it has ever been offered.

You can uninstall and delete anything that you want as long as it is not system related.

RE: fresh water sensors

The sensors are generally on the side of the tank from top to bottom. You should see them on the outside where the wires connect to them and you should be able to check the connections. You may have to get under to where the tank is to see all of this.

RE: DVD options

Thank you all for responses. Its a new tv but not "smart" tv so I am guessing it will not play video. I appreciate all the answers and advice. One of the Roku boxes has a USB input connection. (Maybe Roku 3) The box connects to the TV with an hdmi cable. The box is small and you can connect your portable hard drive to it and then play video from the hard drive onto the TV - so you don't need a "smart tv".

RE: Cable went up. Again.

The first thing to do if considering cutting the cord with your cable company is finding highspeed internet service not through the cable provider. Often if you opt to discontinue television and phone (if you have cable phone) from a cable company is the price of the internet alone goes up and you find that you are paying almost the same thing as you did before. Highspeed internet is essential if you want to go with an independent VOIP phone - and if you want to download Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. to your TV (each with their own subscription fee). Of course, you can go to the phone company and have them install a phone, forget internet, and put an antenna on your house. Broadcast TV varies by location on how many channels and how good the reception is - and if you have more than one TV in the house, the digital signal drops from set to set over the house.

RE: DVD options

Is it possible? - yes. Is it legal? - that is a debated question. Supposedly, if you are copying a DVD you own for your own personal use, it is legal. I am not an attorney. If the DVD has copy protection you will not be able to copy it. Some do, some don't. There is free software out there to make the copies. Some will even compress them to smaller size. Plus your television needs a USB port that is made to see the an attached hard drive and play video files. Not all are. Some just will show still photo galleries.

RE: Cricket hotspot feature.

I just looked at Crickets data plans and don't see anything for $10 a month other than a $10 per 1Gb for overage. There is a $50 plan with 5 gb and what they call an unlimited plan for $60 which the plan specs detail that over 10 gb the speed drops to 128kb/s. The hotspot plan says that it uses the data from your corresponding phone plan with the data as I wrote above. Where is there a $10 for 10 Gb / month hotspot plan on Cricket?

RE: $10 for unlimited internet

3G as a hotspot is OK for browsing non-graphic intensive websites, email, and internet forums. There is a reason why it is only $15 a month. 3G can work well on a mobile device as mobile browsers are designed to work with limited bandwidth - but once you connect a laptop to the hotspot with a desktop browser you are going to see a major slow down. Once you start looking at 4G or 4G LTE hotspots you are going to see the fine print that once you exceed a set number of Gb usage in a month the speed will be dropped to 3G, Edge, or 2G- even when the system says "unlimited".

RE: Hooking TV into built-in stereo

If your stereo and TV have a fiber optics audio connector you can connect the two together and get your television audio coming out your RV's stereo speakers. If not, the other alternative is if your stereo has an aux phono jack and if your television has a headphone jack. This will do it also - but on our RV stereo the headphone jack on the TV was not putting a digital audio signal into the stereo and there was stereo but no surround sound. We used the optic audio cable and get surround sound now coming from the RV stereo surround speaker system.

RE: anyone know of a good basic OTA DVR

Assuming that this set up is in your house and not an RV. The cable companies are making it very difficult to record without their own recording cable box. I have an older DVR DVD recorder but our cable company dropped the ability in the cable box to turn on channels on and off on a schedule eliminating the usability of the recorder and its timer. Most cable companies want you to go through their tuner now or nothing and are setting the systems to have to do that.

RE: PW fresh water tank algae removal

Let the bleach and water mix sit in the tank for at least four hours - no less. More is OK but the bleach starts to dissipate to water after four hours.

RE: Vonage, Magic Jack, Ooma

I have Magic Jack in my home office. It works fine. One fee per year - $35. Unlike the original Magic Jack you do not need to have it connected through a computer - just a router or ethernet switch. Like any of the internet based phone services, you need a working internet connection coming through a router so you are still paying someone for internet service to your house. All voicemail will be forwarded to your email. It also includes a free app to access your magic jack number on your cell phone - but be aware that the app is very intrusive and is always running on the phone.

RE: Andersonville andd Appomattox

In Appomattox be sure to set aside some time to go to the Museum Of the Confederacy Annex. It is an excellent museum on the edge of Appomattox NPS.

RE: Visiting Washington DC

If there is a special exhibit at one of the museums that attracts many you may need a ticket in advance - usually free but ticket services can add on a charge for the service. You can also try going there early in the morning to see if there are any tickets available for that day. The White House requires a ticket - either by getting there early in the morning, getting on line and then getting a ticket for a time to come back that day. You can also contact one of your Representatives - Congress or Senate and arrange with them for tickets for a White House tour - same tour but you get the tickets in advance. The Capitol may be doing the same thing requiring getting a ticket early in the morning with a tour time on it for later in the day. Smithsonians are free and require no ticket. Monuments require no ticket, other than possibly the Washington Monument to go to the top if it is peak tourist season - again no charge but you have to get it early and go back later. There is no parking at the Jefferson Memorial any longer and it is easiest accessed by TourMobile - or if you park at the FDR Memorial and walk around to the Jefferson along the path. Travel outside DC and you can go to Old Town Alexandria, Arlington, and also to Mount Vernon. Mount Vernon charges an admission. Go with enough time to see the museum and presentation center, tour the grounds, the farm - all in addition to the house. There is also a working Mill and Distillery down the road owned by Washington. Lots of Civil War sites near enough to DC in Virginia - Manassas and Fredricksburg. NPS sites and there may be a charge for the museums but not the battlefields.
