  1. Torklift Steps

    I replaced my original 3 step with the Torklift Glowstep Revolution 4 step a couple of years ago. The best mod I ever made. I have a bad knee and back and it made a tremendous improvement. And the diving board effect is absolutely gone.
  2. ATT cracking down on Mobley?

    Why not just get an access point device. It will pick up the signal from the Mobley and create another wifi hotspot for your use. Then all you have to worry about it data usage.
  3. Verion Jetpack problem or ??

    I just checked my 2 jetpacks, 6620 and 7730 and both show current data used, but it is total usage for my account which includes my smartphone, not the individual usage per jetpack. The My Verizon smartphone app shows individual device usage as well as the total for all 3 and it is current almost to the minute data is used.
  4. GM to bring back MDT’s

    I have a 2006 2500HD with the LBZ. 182,000 and counting. Great engine and truck.
  5. TV4RV Tripod

    I agree. I have had mine in full time use since 2010 and love it. I had a neighbor's fast up tent come loose in a storm a few years back and hit my dish/tripod. I had to order a few replacement parts for the tripod and they were shipped same day. Great product and great service.

  7. Mobley has been shipped 01-02-18

    Back in July 2017 when the AT&T Mobley deal was still active I tried to order one twice. I went ahead and ordered the USB adapter at the same time from another source which I now have had since July. In AT&T's infinite wisdom and advanced customer service they cancelled my order the next day saying they couldn't identify me. Sooooo I ordered it again with the same result the day after. I called them and reminded them I was an existing customer with hard wired internet as well as a 20+ year DirecTV customer. It didn't matter they could not or would not accept my order for the Mobley. So I cancelled my internet service (I can't live without DirecTV so I didn't shoot myself in the foot there). It was amazing the credit card I use to pay my other AT&T services was the same card I was trying to get the Mobley with. Oh well, their loss. The reason for this post is I have the USB Mobley adapter I do not need (see picture below). I will give it to the first person that will pay for postage. I'm thinking send me $10.00, I'll mail it to you and include the change in the envelope with the unit. I just don't need it so it may as well go to a good home.
  8. Using Dielectric Grease

    I put a shot of dielectric grease in each power pedestal I plug my RV in to. One little dab on each of he 4 conductors. The blades look just as good now as they did 7 years ago and I full time.
  9. I visited this site while in the Vicksburg area a couple of years ago. It was well worth it and the Cairo was amazing. And admission is free with your Senior Card.
  10. I have had 2 PT50C's for years (one primary and one as a backup) and in the fall of 2016 one of them saved me from a surge and one leg died in the process. It was returned for warranty and replaced with a PT50X with the new socket cover. I was then using my backup PT50C until March 2017 when I was involved is a massive thunderstorm with torrential rain and with the wind the rain was blowing almost horizontal into the face of my PT50C. It worked for a few days after the rain and then died. It was returned for warranty and it was reported to me that it got wet. They replaced it with a PT50X also so I now have two of the new models. The "C" model worked for me for years without getting wet, but this storm was a real "perfect storm" it seems.
  11. HAM "shack" setup for your RV

    I monitor Reflector 30C on DStar and on C4FM FCS2 Room 90 or FCS2 Room 1. If I'm not on one of these I'm napping - Retired You Know!
  12. HAM "shack" setup for your RV

    I full time and am a ham (General) also. I use the digital modes and have zero interest in HF due not only to antenna limitations in the RF, but poor propagation right now. If I live long enough for the cycle to change I may revisit HF, but not for now. I work DStar, DMR (limited), and C4FM. My equipment is: 2 DStar hot spots (battery or 120v capable) on raspberry pi"s, 2 ICOM ID51A+ 1 TYT MD380 1 Yaesu FT1DR 1 Verizon Jetpack 1 RAV power supply 1 Open Spot I pretty well have the digital modes covered but spend most of my time on DStar or C4FM. I'm not a big fan of DMR. Ed KM4STL, 3101156

  14. It was definitely leaking through the membrane. I still have a piece of two laying around I think. The manufacturer was Alpha Systems and their total warranty was $225.00 and that was only if I used their replacement material. Fat chance of that. The only thing that was ever used on the roof was a little bleach with for some stains and Dawn and a soft brush. Jayco said it was out of warranty. I replaced it with RV Flex Armor which turned out to be just about the same price as a new rubber roof. I don't worry about leaks anymore since I have zero rubber on the roof and zero caulking to fail. I agree it should not have failed, but it did and the manufacturer's 12 year warranty wasn't worth the ink it took to print it. I will NEVER own another rubber roof longer than it takes to have it sprayed by RV Flex Armor.
