  1. RV parking on the property is a requirement for me. I wish they made condos with covered RV parking. Weed-wacking is not my thing.
  2. I think there is a 100 mile stretch without fuel stations. As I recall, there is highway signage indicating that. If you fill up whenever the tank reaches half full, you will have no problems.
  3. I have a pair of wireless motion sensor led lights that I use to light the approach to the camper. I like it dark outside and I like to know when something/someone is moving around the camper at night. And, I like to have the approach to the camper door light up when we come back at night. I epoxied a neodymium (super high strength) magnet to the back of each light and can "stick" the light to any iron/steel part of the camper or truck. I have this one and several other motion activated led lights for use in and around the camper.
  4. Friends reported steady incoming RV's at Oasis RV resort in Yuma. They had a buy-one-week get-one-free deal and stayed a week. They left for a few days and when they got back someone was parked in their site even though they left a note on the pedestal and the neighbor told the newcomer it was occupied. They got the site back.
  5. Eagle Cap / Adventurer located in Yakima, WA.
  6. To get a feel for how secure a password is, try a password checker such as: https://howsecureismypassword.net/
  7. Nothing new in that headline. The "leak" is a composite of many other breaches and released for sale. It's not a "new breach". https://krebsonsecurity.com/2019/01/773m-password-megabreach-is-years-old/
  8. The Unified Brake system (old version) including base plate, tow bar, wiring harness and all associated parts ran about $3,000. new. I did the install myself and it was a lot of work and took a lot of time. I estimate that, as a business, I would have had to charge about $1,000 in labor, possibly less if I gained more experience doing it.
  9. Not the same kind of truck but with new Michelins on it wandered uncomfortable. I lowered the front tire air pressure from a maximum of 80 psi to 75 and got a faint improvement.
  10. What was your most difficult RV predicament - parking, travel, routes, etc. Ours was driving up a pothole filled dirt road in freezing weather in a pitch black night. Towing a Jeep only to find the road ended in a dead end. (Thanks to a misinformed relative giving directions.) No turn-around and toad-disconnect required. Done it but it was not the adventure we'd hoped.
  11. We have the old unlimited Verizon plan and have used PdaNet for years. But no longer. If you're a Costco member, take a look at the Moto G8 phone. I have an older Moto G4 phone and it has built-in wifi hotspot (free - nada - no charge). It's simple as pie. If you have the Verizon unlimited data plan you can simply activate the Moto G hotspot and presto! - you've got your wifi hotspot. (Of course you have to set up your wifi password first.) I've been using this system for about two years with my older Moto G4. DW purchased the newer Moto G8 phone and it works the same (the phone itself has newer and some better features though). There maybe other phone manufacturers that provide the same service provision, so it's worth a look. PdaNet is dead. Correction: PdaNet is not defunct. It's only dead in the sense that there is no need for it on newer more capable phones.
  12. All true - when gas is used daily. The point is; If octane degrades 10 percent over 18 months, which octane grade would you want in the tank?
  13. The positive and the negative: After "they" get you hooked on the service, then they can start charging you for it.
  14. I don't care if I'm tracked. I'm not that important. I want my bank to track me - it helps avoid fraudulent CC purchases. But tracking me is a waste of resources. What I don't like is my shopping history being tracked - then ads that pander to my browser search begin showing up on websites. I don't like that. I look at a lot of stuff. . .but it doesn't mean that I want to buy it.
