  1. Ive done, it has worked for for me. Just get a carbon monoxide detector in the bedroom if you're concerned at all.
  2. The technology exists now, might be worthwhile to upgrade to a newer genny. Being a good neighbor isnt a requirement for life, but it makes it alot easier to go thru it if you try.
  3. This looks to be the newer model, as the display has been updated. But basically yes. I purchased more of the temp sensors and added the into the system.
  4. I have the LaCrosse 5 in 1 Weather Station. It was the one sold (and may still be selling) at Costco. Internet connected, so I can check in on the sensors when I'm away, and also get alerts on my phone. You can add more sensors to connect to the base station, though those sensors won't show up on the display, they will show on the app on the phone. So now I have temp/humidity sensors outside, inside (the base station), under the RV (used when I'm skirted for winter), and in the fridge. I also have a rain sensor and a wind sensor. I kind of wish I had a baro sensor and connected to wunderground, but not a huge deal, and the deal I got on the weather station at Costco when it was on sale was great. I think the deal at the time was $50 for the set, about 1.5 years ago.
  5. Public Lands is an app, which is nicer to use than a website when travelling IMO. Worth the few bucks just for that for some, i suppose.
  6. I have a mother bear and two cubs who routinely use our site to browse and pass thru, even with a 6 foot fence around it. Part of the reason I got the cameras.
  7. Good question, i did some research and it seems that local storage option wont be coming to blink. Someone did mention that Arlo's base station does have local storage capability. If local network access is impt, I'd look elsewhere. I've set up a few Foscam cameras in my time, and have had them connect to Blue Iris or other NVR software; the problem I had is those always required some sort of power, which I dont want to run in my current situation.
  8. Ive used a closed circuit system before but set up for cloud recording required opening up ports which isnt easy using hotspot internet. I currently use 5 blink xt cameras around the site we are parked on: they are relatively inexpensive, wireless and battery powered, only record when they are triggered, and have free cloud recording, so I can see recordings on my phone anywhere. They arent the perfect solution, but they meet most of the checkboxes of all the options currently out there.
  9. Following, cause I need to do the same! Melted the connector due to poor contact....
  10. I'd split the requirements into two devices. I put in a motion light like this one: https://www.amazon.com/MOTION-GUARD-MG1000-450W-Exterior-Motion-Security/dp/B07D8LTJQ1/ref=sr_1_11?keywords=motion+rv+light&qid=1557464125&s=gateway&sr=8-11 And I also have a Blink XT camera (battery powered) above the front door. It has free recordings, and connects to wifi and can be viewed on my phone.
  11. I have only stayed at the Main Street Casino RV Park and I have enjoyed my stays. I chose it originally because of location and cost. You can walk to Old Vegas easily, and the breakfast buffet at Main Street is pretty decent and cheap. It is nothing more than a parking lot but it has been safe during the times I've been there
  12. The mobley only connects up to 5 devices, thats why I have a wifi router/bridge for mine. I am actually in the market for a new router, am looking at the wifiranger core. It will connect two different wifi sources at the same time, which i good becaue i have a mobley and a tmo hotspot as a secondary source.
  13. Zephyr cove, only other campground open at least on the southern park of the lake is Tahoe Valley but zephyr is much closer to the water.
  14. Nice, I currently have a skirt but it wont help if Im travelling underway in freezing weather (as it happened to me a couple years ago). Ive considered insulating but without a heat source, not sure how long before the exposed pipes would freeze. Im thinking of adding a couple small 12v tank heater pads before insulating as well. Thankfully Im stationary for this winter, so I wont be undergoing this task soon.
  15. You do it for traction, the tires will float better in the sand. I've gone down to 10 psi several times for camping at Pismo, with no ill long term effects to the truck or trailer tires, knock on wood.
