    Fantastic fans and rain sensors

    It might just be the wall switch I dunno but when you push the switch to on sometimes it will work and sometimes it just sits there doing nothing. Once in a while it will raise the lid , start the fan and then just shut down. and no it has not been raining. our bathroom fan is one where you have to raise the lid by hand andthen turn on a switch to run the fan. The fan does not run anymore. I will have to remove it and check it all out.
  2. Howdy. Our fans are starting to act up....hit and miss operation. Im suspecting the rain sensors. Has anyone else experienced this?
  3. Thanks Joel. We have been very happy with Verizon in the west.

    Water conservation while dry camping

    As we mostly boondock we have it so that our limiting factor is our black tank which will last 2 weeks. I carry a 45 gallon bladder under the coach so a trip for water is not a hardship with the toad (gmc half ton). I usually have to fill up our 2 jerry cans for the side by side by then anyways, and get some milk etc.
  5. We primarily boondock and have an android smart phone that we use when in the US. We use the hot spot on the phone for our internet needs. We will be getting Verizon’s unlimited data plan this fall and I’m hoping to find a cell signal booster to improve the signal.
  6. Wow... was following this thread to answer my own questions. This is waay too complicated. I just want a stronger cell phone signal.

    Getting hot going over mountains

    I agree with Bill w/bus. Get to know your drivetrain intimitely and how it behaves in all conditions. I like what he says about letting your speed drop Slowly and the fact that if you dont get more speed by adding throttle all you are doing is adding heat and wasting gas.

    Any Advice on best 4x4 RV for off-road Boondocking?

    Persoanlly I would build my own. Start with a half decent school bus and convert it to 4x4 and build the insides the way I want it. the way we do it now is boon dock as far off road as you can with a dp with hiway tires ( not very far) and then explore with either my pickup 4x4 or my side by side 4x4.
  9. So here we are in The Ogilby road area and I see a sign for the escapees boondockers. Welcome to the neighborhood!

    Random questions from the crack of dawn

    We use laundromats as well. Most good laundromats have wifi so we catch up on that end of life at the same time.

    Fifth wheel hitch

    Get something with an airbag. Far too many fifth wheels have cracked frames so the easier you can treat the stress on the hitch the better.

    Opinions on warranties & protection plans??

    Ray.we do as well. It would be painfull but doable. I have never believed in any kind of extended warranties and I feel it has saved me money in the long run. I also do the majority of my own work.

    2011 Grand Cherokee as Toad wiring lights?

    I made a light bar that fits onto the 2" hitch reciever on the jeep. I used one of the towing light kits that you can buy at harbor freight, ran the wires along the frame to the front.

    Furnace fuse

    I've experienced this too. Strange but the only thing I can think is that the fuse will carry alow test voltage but somehow is open to a slightly higher voltage.

    mexican insurance

    A friend of mine who travels every year to Mexico told me to never buy insurance at the border...too expensive. He buys his from a firm in Los Angeles.
