  1. Does anyone know when the last year the 8.1 ltr Chevy engine was used in a class A? And what RV it was used in?
  2. Verizon yagi cell phone booster

    Thank you Tom, a good article with plenty of info to help make a decision as to what I can do. Dan
  3. Thanks for pointing me to the other posting.
  4. This was another exceptional topic. I’m wondering, though, (1) Will this post will still be available to relook at in 5-7 years? (2) Has the amount and type of moving changed over the years since Escapees started. (3) Do those belonging to Xscapers have the same criteria for moving, and move as often, as the older generation?
  5. I found this to be an excellent thread. I’m still in decision phase of going full-time next spring/summer in my 25’ C, so the rational everyone provided has been hrlpful. Before getting the C I had been looking at A’s. I like the smaller C, as everything is ‘close.’ But, as I start looking at STUFF I’ve accumulated over the years an A with more storage is becoming appealing. Like others have said, I like having everything available when I stop, so for me a 5th or TT is not appealing, and I van’d for many years so not going back there. Thank you for this topic, as it shows me what a wonderfully compatible and diversified group of people we are
  6. An interesting article describing the plight of many retirees who are living in RVs and workamping. https://www.washingtonpost.com/graphics/2017/national/seniors-financial-insecurity/?deferJs=true&outputType=default-article&undefined=&utm_term=.6fe67a36d4a2&wpisrc=nl_most&wpmm=1
  7. Are you using gmail’s webmail, or an email reader like Thunderbird?
  8. I have many gmail accounts. I use Mozilla Thunderbird to read my email, not webmail. Every time I move and open Thunderbird to read my email I get a messsge telling me my passwords have been stolen. Everytime I move to a different area, or city, or state, Before I can download my email to my computer I get the message “ your Passwords Have Been Stolen. You are required to log into Gmail to validate your password.“ Sometimes I have to log in and out of Gmail several times before Gmail recognizes my password at the new location. I have not found a way in which to contact gmail to get help fixing this problem. From what I’ve read on other forums, this is occurring to all Gmail accounts when they have moved from an identified location. Many one have a valid solution, or know how to contact a live person at gmail help? Thanks in advance. Dan them. Every time I move I get a messsge telling me my passwords have been stolen.

  9. I've had COX cable at home for years. Recently, while traveling and getting Verizon Unlimited data I realized I no longer need cox cable, as I will use my iphone personal hotspot for my internet connection, thus saving $60+. BUT, I've also discovered I only get 2 bars at my home location so I need a cell phone signal booster. Not only will I need one for my home, but I'll need one for traveling and boondocking. For traveling a yagi is the optimum. Having a WeBoost or Ubiquity M5 would be great, but not for $400+. Are there any suggestions for what is being used as an inexpensive yagi setup? I know there are many good Chinese products, and which are inexpensive, but I don't know how to find them, or which one would be good. Any suggestions or comments? Safe travels, Dan
  10. I'm wondering what kind of experiences others are having around the country with the incredible time we have been having so far with weather changes. Now we have IRMA following on HARVEYs footstep, battering the south with unbelievable damage. And then we are having the unexpected heat waves and fires in the western states. As a DOVE member, I'm working in Missoula, MT, for the Red Cross in their shelters. It is very sad to see the amount of fires in Montana, as well as Idaho. We are seeing new fires breaking out daily, and big fires are merging to create superfires. The air quality in northwest Montana is pretty much Unhealthy to Very Unhealthy, as seen by this link http://svc.mt.gov/deq/todaysair/AirDataMap.aspx. It is possible air might will hit hazardous conditions over the next week. What are your experiences so far? Any one going to volunteer at the fires in the northwest, or to IRMA and HARVEY, or other places?
  11. I did not get a response to what the difference is between evaporative and home fridge. And since I'm on the road I can't check my home to see what temp it is. The additive situation does make sense. I'll leave the situation like it is, and look at following what Ray,IN suggested
  12. I've noticed my 2009 Norcold N611 evaporative freezer does not freeze many items, like ice cream and bread, even thought the temp is 20 degrees. Everything in the back of the freeze, where the cooling coils are located does freeze, but not in the freezer front. Norcold tells me evaporative freezers DO NOT freeze items with additives like sugar and fats, and that this is a normal process. Can anyone clue me in if this is normal for evaporative freezers? Thanks for any help.
  13. Overnight parking at Costco?

    Pieere, can you tell us the name of the town which sided with the campground owners?
  14. Quality VS Speed

    I didn't see it mentioned, but Chuck Woodbury had an article in his ezine, RVTRAVEL.Com, about this issue. http://rvtravel.com/rv-travel-newsletter-issue-799/
  15. National General Insurance Clause

    Check some of the past posts. There have been incidents where collision and comp have been dropped when in storage and then damage occurs through flooding or being hit by another rig, all while parked. With no insurance, they were total losses.
