  3. I have a 709-4 display, never installed, with the 4th tank for a 5th wheel. I sold my 5th wheel and bought a motorhome so don’t need the galley tank display. If anyone here is contemplating adding the second display, buy the 709 with 3 tank display and I’ll trade, save yourself a few bucks Decided to sell, See classifieds
  4. Best Leveling Jacks to Buy

    $600 for installation in White Pigeon. I've had them installed on 2 Lazy Daze, and will do it on my new rig, hate to be without.
  5. ATT Service at Livingston

    Don't know where you got good AT&T service at RE, but in the residential area and main office area AT&T service is marginal at best. Search the forum for previous discussions on the topic.
  6. Livingston Mail Service

    We've had problems with the Houston distribution center relating to incoming mail to SKP several years. No recient change, either improvement, or deterioration of service.
  7. Houseboat rental?

    I'm looking at renting 3 boats for a family trip, not really concerned about location, but like the looks of Ouachita in Arkansas. My main problem is finding pet friendly rentals.
  8. Canada Border Crossing Did Not Go Well

    Good luck on getting a response from the Us Border Protection, as you have from the Canadians ! Traveled in business for 30 yrs and have never run across more unfriendly, unwelcoming, and obnoxious agents than in the US. Just returned from Alaska, same impression.
  9. Won't work if you have only a basic receiver.
  10. Researching Class C Motorhomes

    Both you and your DW need to sit in the cockpit of any Class C you consider, esp. running the engine, you'll see why I wanted a Chevy instead of another Ford E450 chassis. Let the passenger feel the ergonomics, or lack there of. The Sprinter based C's and A's did not have the carrying capacity, nor tankage we wanted.
  11. On both my Foretravel & my Lazy Daze I've used the outside cable connection to connect my Tailgater & and a Carryout (on the LD) with no problem. The FT has RG6 coax the LD had RG59 feeds.
  12. Researching Class C Motorhomes

    The 36' is to big for what we do, i hate taking it anywhere off pavement, which kinda dampers boondocking, dry camping is limited to paved parking lots. Many folks will tell you that size is not an issue, but it is for us. We like to travel, and see things along the road, pretty tuff to just wander some time in a small town, or make a U turn if you think you missed something. We are in Alaska now, in the Foretravel, it has a residential chest freezer and refrigerator. I brought it so I could fill the freezer with Salmon & Halibut, No way for those in a 22'. It has 1200W of solar on it, no room for that on a 22', but no need for that much either. 8 airbag suspension, and #34k not much bothers it on the highway, including trucks. My wife can, and will drive either, we both have class B license in Texas. Which do I like best...the Foretravel will go on the market when we return home.
  13. Researching Class C Motorhomes

    I've had MH's since 1977, a long time ago ! We've had 2 Lazy Daze, class C's, 2 Sprinter based class B's that we REALLY liked. The rest were class A's, from GMC's, an FMC, +++, to our present pair, we have a '03 Foretravel 36' & '14 Forester 22' class C. One of the Sprinters was a Gulfstream, shoddy electrical @ plumbing installation, but for the money, compared to other Sprinters it was well worth the price difference...but remember, the didn't build the body. The other Sprinter was a Pleasure Way, supposed to be top shelf stuff, but to me it was no better than the GS. The LD were very nicely executed, plumbing and electrical were VERY nicely executed. Butttt, were they worth the extra $$? Not in my book, this also goes for the Born Free, and any othe "premium" coach, the all have been fitted out with crap IMOO. I bought the Forrester knowing the "quality" (or lack there of), but it was short, had a queen size bed we could get to both sides of and it's on a CHEVY chassis, all were on my list of requirements. oh, we tried a 5th wheel Hitch Hiker, made one trip, Texas to S.D. & rtn, hated that experience. It ended up in the oil field, new owner thought he had hit the jackpot!
  14. Another Mobley Question

    Had forgotten all about the Cradle Point ability to do what I want....now, where did I put that?
