  1. I’m going to post an excerpt just received in the Rainbows End park email. Hopefully it’s OK either everyone. " CARE - Reopening Clinic and Meals on Wheels Dr Sandra Hutchison confirmed she will be at the Activity Center Social, this coming Sunday 11/24 to discuss opening an office in Pearl’s cottage 1/1/2020. (Come at 6:00 p.m. for ice cream social, discussion will follow. David Horton) Initially, the office will be open two days each week with Nurse Practitioner Lindsey. NP Lindsey offered to make house calls, if she does not have patients in the office at the time of request. We are encouraging the Doctor to also bring in specialists, if possible. This service will be for all of Rainbows End (deeded and transient RV’ers). If you want a close, convenient health resource (that you could walk to) come to this Sunday’s Social to ask questions. For folks that travel and domicile in Texas, needing annual checkups, this is the ultimate convenience. The CHI clinic, in Pearls, left due to lack of participation of Escapees. Escapee CARE Inc. has no connection with Dr. Hutchinson other than to offer the use of the cottage as an office. If you want a convenient Health Resource, Use it or Lose it! Also beginning 1/15/2020, Escapees CARE, Inc. will offer Rainbows End folks “Meals on Wheels”. Our goal initially will be to deliver lunch to folks in the campground, Monday to Friday, for $9.00 each (or $16.00 for 2 at same address), If there is sufficient need expressed. Initial details include prepayment of 10 meals to get on the delivery list and at least 10 folks (10 stops) signed up by December 15! Normal lunches are $ 6.00, plus $1.00 for special take out containers and $ 2.00 to the person delivering. Week-ends could be added if there are sufficient volunteers to drive. Get your questions answered at Sunday’s Social. Russ Johnson carefd@escapees.com "
  2. Wondering what limits the draw on a circuit used as charge for a toad ? Thinking about wiring into the taillight circuit but don’t know what the draw will be on the circuit.
  3. Looks like once again that the vocal minority has ruled over the silent majority. The much needed (&wanted) cell tower at CARE won’t be constructed on CARE property. This decision, in my opinion, was driven by hysteria & ignorance.
  4. I believe (hope) that they would know if the signal inside of a vehicle, car, truck, or van, made of steel (many are you know) would be USABLE, or not.
  5. The only thing that has held me back is I have a B with a steel roof and don’t know if the signal will penetrate the roof. I’d have had one long ago otherwise. Wineguard says yes the signal will be degraded, but can’t/won’t say if it will be unusable or not.
  6. I’d like to know more about the BB failures Alloy, can you provide any info ?
  7. Hey Gary, welcome back. Bruce Horton did a nice write up on the project a while back. There is a 10 yr contract with CARE for the tower, $1k a month. Some I guess are afraid it will cause brain damage or make them sterile. Probably to late on both accounts. Some of us are rooting for the project.
  8. Thanks, I’ll be heading for Rainbow End and AT&T is nearly nonexistent there, so the Mobley SIM will be no good.
  9. Will the Netgear Nighthawk work on VZ system ?
  10. My experience has been that the price from CW, with some negotiation, is competitive. BUT, the after sales service, including accessory installation, is sorely lacking.
  11. I know where to get them, they are pretty common items. But the question is if I get a brand Y from Wally, will it fit the brand B from Ace ? My experience is “usually”, but the Buddy item FE doesn’t work with others.
  12. Is there a "standard" for propane quick disconnects, or are they like cell phone charging cables where they won’t play well with each other?
  13. I bought a new Winnebago plagued with problems beginning within the first 10 miles. 2 dealers in Texas couldn’t fix it WGO said bring it back to the factory. Three days they worked on it & pronounced it cured. I drove from the factory to the local WGO dealer & traded it. A motorhome a couple of months old with ~4K miles (all delivery & chasing service) doesn’t make a real good trade. My attorney said that the consumer protection laws, & state Lemon laws were so neutered as to be nearly ineffective. If I wanted to fight them for a couple of years I might get a settlement. Being 76yrs old I didn’t want to spend the 2 yrs. $500K MAY be extreme in your minds but we don’t know if they netted anything, or do we ? I doubt if WGO will settle after the first round.
  14. Exactly what we are finding in more and more "RV" parks nowadays.
