  1. Howdy! We gave up on walkie talkies, they never seem to work when we needed them or last very long. We use our cell phones now but mostly rely on hand signal for everything when backing. Number one rule "if I can not see her in the minors I stop", even if we have voice communication. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  2. Howdy! That's it, thank you very much for the help. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  3. Howdy! I had a website that listed recommend RV repair location in you area, also gave recommendations and rated them. I've changed computers/tablets since the last time I needed repair work. Can anyone help if you have that link to a website like this. We're in Florida and I'm in need to have one of our AC's fixed or replaced. "Happy Trails"
  4. Howdy! We recently wanted to stay at Bayou Signet State Park. When I called to check they stated that the dump station is stil closed and out of order. The RV site do not have sewer hookups. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  5. Howdy! California effective July 1st with make it illegal for anyone to possess a firearms magazine with the capacity over 10 rounds. Good citizens of that state will have to turn in their illegal magazines or sell them outside the state. As for me it's just another reason not to spent my time or money in California, along with the fact that they have exposed a travel ban on Texas and eight other states. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  6. Howdy! I gave up on stand alone GPS years ago. I been using Co-pilot on my tablets and smartphones ever since. Once you load the Co-pilot maps onto you device you no longer need a data connection, it works the same way your Garmin or any other gps works. Co-pilot now has a RV app which I'm using now.

  7. Howdy! We recently purchased a portable Traeger pellet wood smoker grill at Costco. It cooks well and easy to use. I wood like it to have a little more smoke flavor in the meat, maybe I just have not figured the cooking process correctly yet. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  8. Howdy! its been years since our trip to Alaska. We opted to due the TOTW hwy on our way out of Alaska in our MDT and 5er we where 65' then. Seems most folk due it going into Alaska. That year it was a very wet drive for those that went early. We stayed until mid September and the TOTW hwy was dry and we had no traffic, I think we saw one commercial vehicle coming from the other direction. The campground in Chicken was not crowded, and no waiting at the ferry crossing at Dawson City. Just something to consider. We're planning to go back to Alaska next year so we'll more than likely do the same thing, we now have a MDT and toy hauler and we're 64'. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  9. Howdy! My daughter sent me a e-mail staying Texas is having a Hurricane preparedness tax sale this coming weekend. It pretends to sale of thing used to be prepared for Hurricane season (lumber, batteries, generators etc...). So if your in the need for a generator this would be a good time to pick one up.

  10. Howdy! I would suggest if you are at the Escapees in Livingston, TX go into Livingston and talk to the Polk County Veterans Service Officer. Her name is Melissa Gates. Her office is located at 602 E Church street, Livingston, TX (936-327-6838). She can assist you filling any paperwork you may need. She helped me fill for my hearing loss, and a couple of appeals. But after four years with her help I received my rating including back pay. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  11. Howdy! We've been fulltiming for ten years now and we use to only make reservations on the big three (Memorial Day, Fourth of July and Labor Day). Last year especially traveling in the northeast we had to make reservations. We found that almost all the campgrounds/RV Parks were full of seasonal and long term folks. This left very few site for people like us that travel. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  12. Howdy! we had our custom matress made by King Koil. They made it the the exact measurements to our RV bed platform wichI had enlarged just a bit from when we purchased it. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  13. Howdy! Our new AT&T homebase is working great with good signal here at our property in Livingston at Escapees and our Maximum Signal booster. We also have a old unlimited 3G plan with Verizon. I have tried for years to upgrade it to 4G and Verizon would not without moving it to a data plan. I tried again when Verizon came out with the new unlimited plan. They would only do it if I also had a phone line also. So yesterday after 16 years with them I dumped Verizon and we are now totally AT&T. Would like to have kept duel coverage but Verizon just would not work with a long time customer. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  14. Howdy! The new 2016 and 2017 handle the cross winds a lot better. Especially the buffering behind large 18 wheelers. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
  15. Howdy! Jack, we picked ours up at the Escapees mail center today. We are now up an running. I did have to make a call to AT&T CSR to find the internet site to activate it. Once I did that I simply had to turn the homebase off and back on again and it's working great. Below is the link to activitate it. "Happy Trails" Chiefneon
