  1. Kodiak Island Alaska but been lots of places, some one time too many. Later, J
  2. I got the PUK code from a chat on the ATT website. Have not tried using it because the Unite 815S the Sim is in is working fine. Good luck. Later, J
  3. Already had a Magnum inverter and a bank of 6-volt batteries so it was a "no brainer" to swap out our 4-door Dometic for a Samsung residential. Love it. More room and cold food and beverages. Should have did it a long time ago. Later, J
  4. I did like Bill suggested and it worked. The Wally looked for satellites like he said but we were able to view everything on the connected external HD. BTW the Wally's wireless worked too and I used it to watch Netflix. Thanks again. Later, J
  5. Is there a method to watch the programs I have recorded on the external hard drive connected to my receiver when not connected to the the DISH satellites? Later, J
  6. We have a pair of bikes with electric motor kits and carry them on a Swagman ladder bike rack. We keep them covered and lashed tight to the ladder. No problems other than the bike cover wearing at rub spots after several ALCAN trips. Later, J
  7. An alternative to buying an electric bike is buy the bike you want and put a kit in it. Very easy to do. You can get them with or without the wheel. I purchased without and simply took the tire off the original and installed it on the kit wheel. Our kits were from Leeds (https://www.e-bikerig.com). We ride at least twice as much as we did before installing them. Later, J
  8. Long before ADA our search and rescue dogs were called service dogs, as were police K9s and guide dogs. Times change. Now pets are called service dogs. Eligibility for the aforementioned dogs to fly in-cabin came only after extensive training (often years) and certification testing. I believe all support dogs/animals traveling in-cabin should require testing and certification or be confined. Later, J
  9. Only had our Pathway X2 under a year but it has worked without fault AFTER changing to a better quality coax than our rig was wired with. Before switching coax it was hit or miss. Love it. Later, J
  10. I used the silicon rescue tape to fix a cracked APS pipe fitting. It was way easier to fix that way than cutting out and replacing the fitting due to it's location under the underbelly. That was 6 year ago. Great stuff. Later, J
  11. As the USCG C-130 deploying us circled Kotlik's runway I couldn't help but wonder if the pilot was thinking; I'm supposed to land on that? Just a thought because the landing went smooth so Sam and his dog Bart, and Axel and I jumped out. A couple four wheelers met us for transport to their village at the mouth of the Yukon River. Search base was a 20' cargo van where we were quickly briefed on the 2 missing children. The primary search area was the river and the shore line was where we started. The problem was that this time of the year the locals chained their sled dogs along the river. There were lots and lots and lots of dogs chained out to reach the water but not each other. The reason for this became crystal clear when every dog we encountered was super dog-aggressive. We quickly developed a long line search technique to stay clear of these barking, growling, lunging, chain rattling crazies in order to clear areas. Axel was focused on his work and I was focused on the sled dogs when sure enough one broke loose and charged. They tangled right at the water’s edge but Axel being the larger dog soon had the Husky down while they were both getting twisted up in my 40-foot lead. Oh NO!! Another dog got loose and the current tussle invaded yet another dogs space. They were all going for Ax as I was trying to get his lead off. In desperation and now up to my waist in water and I gave him his Go Out (Schuhund) command and he went for it, straight into the water where the current caught him. I took off running along the river with the 2 loose dogs closer to Ax than me. He was used to me running along a river bank trying to intercept him as he was swept along because this was the routine when we crossed a river on horseback. Soon the Village Public Safety Officer with shotgun in hand got the dogs owners to get control of their dogs or he would end them. I thought there way too much activity to cut loose with a shotgun. Anyway I fished Ax out of the Yukon about a 1/4-mile down river from where he jumped in. We were later able to clear this dog-stakeout area by boat. We searched 5-days and found one of the kids packs submerged. Bart hit on it from the shore and Ax from a boat. The locals used make shift dredges to sweep the bottom where the dogs alerted. Sorry for the ramble…..way more to this story than here….but the topic was too much for me to pass on. Watch out for dog attacks everywhere. Later, J
  12. I installed our filter/strainer on the suction side to protect the pump. The pump is connected to the system piping with short sections of hose for isolation. I crimp the suction side hose with a small clamp (used to use vice grips). Later, J
