  1. As another note when making that trip we usually stop in Jackpot and spend a night at Cactus Pete's Casino & RV park. Makes a good stopover point.
  2. Have done it many times with 5t wheel and RAM dually. No problems.

    Strong Signal - Low Bandwidth

    In also am not aware of any devices that will boost bandwidth. We are on Verizon and always there is a major difference between bandwidth on the phone and the hotspot we use our computer with. I do notice that signal strength can affect the hotspot a bit. We've had good luck increasing signal strength with our WeBoost amplifier. The latest version has an antenna that is omni directional so you can just leave it in place.

    Interesting Conversation About DEF

    The Walmart brand of DEF is API Certified and approved by virtually all of the manufactures. I just picked up some yesterday for $7.00 for the 2 -1/2 gallon container. Blue DEF was $12.88.

    Cell signal booster

    I've had great results with the (weBoost Home 4G Cell Phone Booster Kit). It has a unidirectional antenna so you can mount it and forget it.

    DISH comes through for RV'ers!

    I tried for a couple of weeks to get relocating local channels to come up on the my Dish app. I got a hold of dish outdoors via chat. The technician checked everything out and found that at the present time (Saturday May 19th) that portion of the app is not presently available. He didn't have any information on when it would be available other than sometime in the near future. It would be better if Dish would not publicize it as being available until it actually is.
  7. Note that with Verizon the 15GB limit befoer slowdown is per phone. If you have 12 phones and use the 15GB up on one the other still has 15GB.
  8. You can set each network (your cellphone connection or your home network connection, Etc) individually to or not to download updates over a metered connection . Thus when you connect at home, etc or any connection that is not limited it will update. This way you don't need to disable a metered connection when you get home. When you connect to your cellphone or what ever next time it still will not download updates.

    bigfoot hydraulic levelers-love them

    We have had Bigfoot systems on our last 2 5th wheel trailers. For quality and customer service there is no one who can come close to them.

    VERIZON UNLIMITED 9 MONTH REVIEW

    Overall Verizon works the best for us. We do a lot of traveling in rural areas and without doubt Verizon has the best rural coverage. If you do any streaming or a lot of large downloads the 15GB limit goes very fast. But even though the throttled down speeds are still better than no ser5vice at all. We have had experience with AT&T and T-Mobile and their coverage in rural areas weak to non existent. Unfortunately Verizon is the best and they know it.
  12. I'm not sure what is going on with Dish. I called them this morning about adding PBS national feed. They advised me that they know nothing about it now being available as an option and that it was dropped several years ago and nothing has changed as of today. Also asked about distant networks option and the only option available is to subscribe to the local channels option which only has about a 150 mile radius. They knew nothing about a program to view a select local channel line up nationally.

  14. As far as I know the distant network service on dish was abandoned almost 5 years ago. The only option I know of is subscribe to local channels option. You will have to call dish each time you are in a new location to get the local channels. I have requested numerous times that they let you set it up on the Network Website but have gotten nowhere. Also the local channels are set to your dish via a spot beam that is only receivable in about a 150 mile radius. I understand that Dish now offers PBS national on a very restricted basis as an alacarte item.

    What 5th wheel hitch should I consider installing on my MDT?

    If you are driving a class 3 truck the B&W Companion works great. When you are not towing it removes and you have a stock bed with no rails. www.turnoverball.com/
