    • Disregard my last post Bob...I am such a dummy...I did not read your post correctly.
    • And, Yarome's post is exactly why I also bought an 815S. I also have a Homebase. I'm looking for the ability to add the external antenna in a really poor signal area.Plus the other things noted. As long as the Mobley SIM continues to function in the 815S I see it as a total "win".
    • I am glad you like that kind of Full time life. But it is not for me. I don't want to sit at a Wally World parking lot for 15-17 hours a day.
      That is how long I spend at overnight campgrounds and at destinations I use electric 24/7. I don't have to carry around all the extra weight of solar panels and need to buy expensive batteries.
      That by your post will last forever and never need replaced.   solar and batteries are free.
      I can only get my T-105 6V batteries to last around 7 years 6 months on average and then need to replace them for $$$, not free. I need electric to run my refrigerator, stand alone Freezer, stand alone Ice Maker, Both AC(Like to keep RV temps between 73-78º 24/7) with one being a heat pump also, 2 small space heaters,  my 55", 26", 24", 20" and 10" TV,  Genie DTV receiver, surround sound stereo system, 2 desktop & 2 laptops, charge my iPhone plus 2 iPads, keep my hotspot working, weBoost, WiFiRanger running, hair dryer, convection/microwave(use it a lot), water heater, and other items that use electric.
      Yep!! I am a electric hog. I don't think my roof it big enough to hold enough solar panels to keep enough batteries charged(which I have no place to put them) to run all my devices. By the way I just checked my Quicken for 2016 my average per night/day for Full Time hooks ups came out to $4.48 a day for the 12 months. 2015 it was $4.15 way back in 2003 it was $5.15 My LPG bill every year has averaged $51.96 a year for the last 11 years and includes use(mostly exercising) of my LPG 6.5W generator. You enjoy your solar & I will enjoy my electric.  
    • I agree with almost everything 57 becky says except these are not  the same as the set -up for boat trailers and the 2 are not interchangeable.  At least all the older ones. Boat trailer may have been updated someway since I last owned one.
    • Oh, OK. I was under the impression that if you were an Escapee member it was part of the Escapees site. Guess I was wrong again.......
