  1. Howdy! I put locking fuel caps on my truck. They not only help to prevent theft but down right meanness. I had a RV friend tell me about fuel tanks tanks he had worked on at his shop that someone had put in rags, cups, paper etc ... this is just down right meanness I don’t want to have to deal with. ” Happy Trails “ Chiefneon
  2. Howdy! Thanks for the replies. I took the truck into Discount Tires in Livingston this morning and they had no problems installing metal valve stems on the outer rear duel wheels. ” Happy Trails “ Chiefneon
  3. Howdy! I recently purchased a new TV a 3500 Chevrolet HD/LTZ/DRW 2L Custom Hauler. Yesterday I was preparing for our trip and checking all the tires for air pressure and going to install my PresurePro TPMS on the new truck. To my surprise the two front tire had medal value stems, but the rear duels had rubber value stems. I took the truck into Premier Tires in Livingston, TX to have the rear value stems replaced with metal value stems and was told that they could replace the inter duel stems but not the outer tires value stems. They stated they could not replace them because the stem area was to small to get a socket wrench into the area the tighten the steam. I don’t want to run the TPMS in a rubber steam. I don’t think I can even if I tried because the stem is so short I don’t think it will screw on to the rubber stems. The tire store recommended that a dealership may have a metal tire stem for the rims. Has anyone had this type of problem, or have any suggestions I would appreciate the help. ” Happy Trails “ Chiefneon
  4. Howdy! I agree with docj. We used Chromecast when we had Android phones a tablets. We switched to Apple because they are the only ones that will connect to my hearing aids and now have what I call a Apple orchard iPhones, iPads and Mac laptop. I learner very quick the best way is to use Apple TV for apps like DirecTV Now and Amazon Prime, I can still connect to Netflix’s using Chromecast. Another easy way is to use a cable to connect the iPhone to a hdmi adapter and cable. Which also cut out having to connect via WiFi. https://www.amazon.com/Lighting-ebasy-Converter-Projector-Compatible/dp/B07NW5GR9F/ref=sr_1_1_sspa?crid=1K49C9VL8Q8X6&keywords=iphone+hdmi+adapter+to+tv&qid=1553295966&s=gateway&sprefix=iPhone+hd%2Caps%2C238&sr=8-1-spons&psc=1 ”Happy Trails” Chiefneon
  5. Howdy! We fulltime and I use to us Bluetooth head phones while driving as my lovely wife did not like it when I turned up the radio so I could hear it. So when I got my new resound hearing aids from the VA and connected them with my iPhone or iPad to lessen to music or talk radio I was shocked when she asked me if I would turn them down because she could hear them. She has very good hearing. ” Happy Trails “ Chiefneon

    Howdy! We wanted to sign up with Escapees new ERS program last year but got conflicting information on it regarding MDT 4400 international crewcab Hauler. One advised no problem then another stated we needed to purchase two policies one for he MDT one for the 5er. So we renewed with CN. We had a breakdown in Alaska truck blew the turbo. CN sent out a tow service heavy duty with a trailer to tow the MDT andanother tow truck for the 5er. Only thing they asked was where we wanted to be towed to. They towed the MDT to Anchorage and our 5er to a nearby campground. Same great service from CN a few years ago while we were in Newfoundland. So far I haven’t heard of anyone that has used the Escapees New ERS yet. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon
  9. Howdy! I do use it to boost my MiFi devices but also use it to boost our cellular phone to make and receive calls. That why I like the Maximum Signal. My antenna inside my 44’ toy hauler is located in the sealing in the living room mid RV. When the Maximum Signal works it boost the Signal throughout the RV. ” Happy Trails “ Chiefneon
  10. Howdy! We are using Maximum Signal now but considering switching to a WeBoost. Could you explain what you meam by “the phone/broadband device must be quite close to the inside antenna”? With the Maximum Signal when it works boosted the signal within our 44’ Toy Hauler and even some signal out side. I would just like to know the restraints of how close you need to been to the WeBoost for usable quality. ” Happy Trails “ Chiefneon
  11. Howdy! We had a couple of water leaks that I couldn’t figure out that he helped with. He is also replacing two of our three AC units. To save us money he suggested that I pickup the AC units a PPL in Houston and he would install them. That helped him and me out. I would definitely us him again. ” Happy Trails “ Chiefneon
  12. Howdy! When I signed us up for DirecTV Now over a year ago I had a long conversation with them over the phone describing that we are fulltime RVer’s and use our AT&T unlimited plus plan for our internet needs. They had no problems then or in the past just recently when I contacted them because for unknow reasons our local channel had switched from Houston area the the Dallas/ Ft Worth area. Even then when asked I informed them we use AT&T MiFi and Also Verizon MiFi for our data connection. They made no mention as you refer to that it was for “Residential customers only”. As stated last year on our trip to Alaska it worked out well traveling through Canada and Alaska. Our last trip to Alaska we lost our satellite in Canada which is one of the reason we opted to try Streaming. ” Happy Trails “ Chiefneon
  13. Howdy! I recently purchased a new TV with custom hauler bed. I decided not to go with a fifth wheel hitch on this truck and make use of the goose neck ball and have better excess to the bed area without a large 5er hitch. I replaced my 5er pin box with a new Reece Goose Boox 20,000lb pin box. This pin box not only has shocks but also a air bag within it. The Goose Box is much more sturdy that the factory pin box. Only had a short tow with the new tRuck Goose Box but it tows and rides good and very smooth. With the camera system in the new truck I had very little difficulty hooking up. The Reese Goose Box is a nice alternative to some one who wants to have use of their truck bed without having to remove the 5er hitch. Most new truck now come with a puck system to us a turnover ball like mine does. https://www.towuniverse.com/reese-goose-box-20k-rated-2-5-16-gooseneck-rv-coupler-for-lippert-1621-1716-wing-sets?language=en&currency=USD&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIw8ear6ey4AIVhLfACh1MLA8DEAQYASABEgIF7_D_BwE ” Happy Trails “ Chiefneon
