  1. My previous insurance company was my first RV insurance company. We bought our first RV (2005 Newmar Mountainaire) April 2015 and moved in the day we made the purchase. I would have preferred to stay with the same company but not at that rate increase.
  2. This is our second month on Verizon's unlimited plan. I primarily use a Jetpack (MIFI) and connect five devices (2 iPhones, 2 iPads, and one Epson wireless printer). Last month the MIFI hit 99.0GB without any slow down that I could notice. My Phones are not set up as Hotspots. We just use the cellular data for the iPhones. IPad connect only to the MIFI. This month, ten days into the cycle at 25GB on the MIFI with no throttling. So far, with a DW that surfs Pinterst much of the day, I like the new plan.
  3. Insurance update. I did get three quotes as suggested. There were definite differences between the quotes and my renewal. One was $700 less than my renewal amount and the other two were about $500 above. I went with the lowest quote which was from Miller Insurance Agency with National General Insurance being the insurance company. This quote was for the RV and my tow vehicle. It provided increased liability amounts on the tow vehicle and doubled my personal effects coverage. Happy with the insurance cost for this year. I do get a $150 refund for the remaining time on my Geico auto policy. Thanks for all of the advice and comments.
  4. Thanks for the information on Miller Insurance.  I will call Cheryl tomorrow.

  5. Agree with Kirk. I just had the insurance experience since my current policy expires tomorrow. I requested several quotes. Blue Sky did provide a quote but it was 1/3 higher than my best quote. I went with Miller Insurance as the agent and National General Insurance as the insurer. They provided the best quote for my Texas based, full-timer insurance and included my tow vehicle in one policy. My Miller Insurance was Cheryl Howarth.
  6. Somebody at National Interstate, surely sitting at a bar scribbling on a napkin, decided to see if I would renew my full-time policy with a 44% increase. Yes 44%. Answer is no way. Will be shopping for a new company first week in April.
  7. Fort Parker is in Mexia, TX. Not close to the border.
  8. edatlanta, where are you currently located? City or rural? The Verizon rep stated throttling should only be a issue in cities due the concentration of devices/phones. Of course, his lips were moving.
  9. I manually back them up to the Mac with iTunes. Have not tried relying on the cloud for backups due to my previous 30GB data limit.
  10. AFchap, I do not have replacement value insurance. When originally purchased, National stated they did not offer that coverage for my coach as I remember the conversation. Will be calling them on Friday to try and find the reason for the increase.
  11. I just received my renewal quote from National Interstate. It 44% higher than last year. My RV is a 2005 Newmar Mountainaire. I have only had one claim in the two years we have been in the coach (our only coach ever). Last year I had the right, front windshield replaced using my glass break insurance. Cost approximately $1,250 with $100 deductible. Is this a typical increase? I'll be shopping around as soon as I can find a list of insurance companies for fulltimer's.
  12. I'm on Verizon and use a Jet Pack (hot spot) for my internet connection. I'm able to connect all devices (up to 15) to the hotspot. I connect two iPads, two iPhones, one MacBook Pro, and my Epson Workforce printer to the hotspot. I can print from the IPhone, iPad, and Mac via the hotspot. My guess is the AT&T hotspot would meet your needs. An AT&T store should be also be able to help with your question.
  13. First test
  14. I saw the "Unread Content" but did not care for it. Like you stated, it is more work to find topics of interest. Thanks

Hi there, For all you who are traveling with pets or for those of you curious about traveling with pets this is the place to learn and share what you’ve learned. For all of you who don’t like pets and like nothing more than to tell others how you despise man’s best friend and traveling companions then this is not the place to be. Those of you who know who you are, you’ve been warned. To Do and Not to Do For Sale Ads Things to do for sale ads: 1. Always start a new topic for a new item, don't piggy-back on an earlier one as it makes things confusing once folks start replying. 2. Consider putting individual items in their own topics instead of all in one. Exception's to that would be for selling a truck and trailer, toad and hitch or other things that might be bought as a set. If part of a set sells edit the title and your first post...
