  1. Yes, exactly. You only deploy the booster in super low signal situations. And then it really shines.
  2. I've never had the booster make a bad signal worse. It will definitely cause issues with a decent signal, and may make it worse. It should only be used when needed. We are totally dependent on the internet for our jobs, which is to manage servers, so basically we're connected 24/7. We notice when things work or don't.
  3. I have the Weboost car kit, which is the same electronics as the RV kit with a different antenna. I got a free cell/wifi/GPS antenna from a friend and will add that some day. But so far it has worked great as is. I just stuck the car antenna on the trailer roof and ran the wires in the door.
  4. I'm talking about the AT&T Mobley plan, not OTR. I'm only interested in the Mobley plan because it's so cheap, and AT&T is only my backup carrier. I rarely need it. T-Mobile and Sprint are completely useless for me.
  5. Currently I'm at the "either cancel me with no penalty or fix it" stage. But I *am* using an unauthorized device, outside the ToS. They haven't told me that, but they can know if they look.
  6. The Mobley plan no longer exists. If you have one and make no changes to it, then it will stay. But if you change anything on the account, they will bump you off and refuse to give it back. Ask me how I know...
  7. Yes, of course. Same as a TV van is a commercial vehicle. There will be a day, probably soon, that the Youtubers will have to comply with all the stuff that a TV van has to.
  8. There are 120v and 5v USB adapters. I have a 5v version, since that means it can also work from 120v using a generic USB power adapters. Maximum flexibility. $10 on Amazon.
  9. Now my Mobley stays powered up at all times, and is draining the car battery. What fun.
  10. "Would you convict someone who broke the law even if you believed the law is wrong." NOPE! "Excused." "What groups and associations do you belong to?" I list them all. "Excused." Etc. Not possible for me to be on a jury.
  11. This is another great reason to use a PMB for all of your information. Come find me if I don't show up, good luck!
  12. Wife got one a couple years ago. We were considering traveling at the time and they basically told her "too bad." Now, we know they wouldn't just issue a warrant for failing to appear once, so we were ready to ignore it anyway. As it happened, they settled just before the trial and she was released. I've always been kicked out of the pool very early on. There's no way I'd get selected with my views on politics, the police, and most laws. Sometimes I also pass out FIJA brochures which has resulted in being removed from the premises physically.
  13. Got a new rep today, who instantly gave me the correct codes without further questions or issues. I have no idea why the first was so incompetent. I unlocked the SIM with the PUK, in the Mobley, and it let me set my own PIN. Moved the SIM to the Netgear router, but it said the SIM was PIN locked, which is correct. In its settings, I entered the new PIN and then told it to leave the SIM unprotected (disable SIM PIN). This is critical. When the device boots with a lock, it will not connect to the network, even if you enter the PIN later. Weird, but I tested it three times. The speed difference is INCREDIBLE. I was getting around 6-8 Mbps on the Mobley. Check out the Netgear... And then ten minutes later, it all stopped working. Now the Mobley is not working either. Back to AT&T support I suppose.
  14. Do you want them all to have different channels, or the same channels on at least two? What you're being told is probably that it only supports two channels viewed at once. You can connect as many TVs as you want with appropriate connections and splitters.
  15. I bought a Nighthawk. Got on chat with AT&T support almost 45 minutes ago. Not only do I not have the PUKs yet, they broke my account and are telling me I need a new SIM. Made the mistake of answering honestly when he asked if I was moving it to another device. Then they wanted to change the plan. I'm still waiting for them to figure something out. Ten minutes of "hold" time so far... Blaise: Thank you. Blaise: Working on it now. Me: Ok Blaise: I appreciate your patience. Blaise: Please give me a few minutes while I look into this. Blaise: Thank you for your patience. Please give me another couple of moments to look into this further.
  16. My Mobley has never had a great connection. Or more accurately, has never been stable with a good connection. As we drive around, it goes from great to awful, in the same areas where we previously used AT&T phones with very good speeds. It's simply a low performance device with limited bands. I think I will get the Netgear everyone seems to love, and move the SIM. I think that requires obtaining a PUK code?
  17. I spend a lot of time around dogs, dog people, and dog rescues/advocates. I'm 54. I've never once heard anyone mention a yellow thing as any kind of sign for a dog. People put all sorts of colors on their dogs in all sorts of ways. I don't think anyone has ever considered it a signal.

    junk mail

    I'm 54, joined early this month just to save just over $200 on glasses. I haven't used them for anything else, and have turned off all the physical and junk mail options in my account. We don't eat at any of the junky restaurants they have discounts for, we already have RX discounting through health plans, etc.
  19. To be sure it's understood correctly, that story is not MINE, it is one I found today on an RV subreddit. Mine wasn't as bad. It took many months and lots of wasted time/trips, but at least my rig was mostly usable when not in the shop.
  20. If a filter is attached to the output of a tank, it seems like it would catch more moisture since the air is already cooled, and the RH is therefore high. Attaching it to a compressor directly seems like it would do little, because the RH of the hot air is much lower. This is just my view of it thinking through the physics, and not something I know for sure.
  21. Another multi-month, multi-problem Keystone nightmare:
