    Terrarium TV

    Genesis has stopped. Yoda works. Are you watching through a VPN? Theses services are a little sketchy.

    Best Cell Booster

    X2 on the Sleek.
  3. Added a topper on the mattress. Removed the couch and recliners and sold on Craigslist. Replaced with a nice quality residential sofa and Euro recliners.

    Dually wheel wear

    The outside tires on my F350 Dually wear faster than inside tires. Dealer said you don’t rotate. Is that true or is he just trying to sell me tires?

    flip tire on the rim

    Thanks Derek. Looks like swapping inside to out is recommended. We’ll give it a shot.

    T-mobile or Sprint cell/data services?

    I just terminated my Sprint hot spot service a few days days ago after 26 months. If we were close to the interstate in most places, we had good service, but if you're not in a metro area I had little to no service.
  7. I've been a Flickr user since 2008. I know free isn't really free, but have used the free plan to share RV travel photos with friends and family. Plus I've enjoyed to safety of uploading pictures from the phone either on cell or set for a wifi connections. The plan changes Feb 2019. Free is will be limited to 1,000 pictures (ouch). There is a pay for plan of unlimited uploads at $49.95 a month. Options, options, options. It never ends.

    Flickr Limiting Plan Feb 2019

    Oops! Typo. $49.95 a year.
  9. Maybe some type of handshake between DirecTV and the Mobley not seen when using Verizon? I've been using a new FireStick, my Mobley and Prime Video for 6 months all over the east coast, some in heavy congested areas and no buffer issues.

    Verizon Unlimited Data Plan for Jetpacks

    First, many thanks to our Technomadia friends for this post. Needing reliable Internet for our business on the road requires good, reliable bandwidth. I have a couple Mobley's, an older Unlimitedville Sprint plan and a "just in case" Verizon tied to our phone plan and the Verizon is some kind of expensive. This pay as you go plan could not come at a better time. We're heading west this winter and knowing the Sprint service was going to be a bust, I needed a reasonably priced alternative to the Mobley....."just in case". I'm betting, starting from scratch with a new MiFi is the way to go. I purchased the plan online and Verizon stated I required a new SIM with the pre-pay plan. Without going into the mess, I spent a number of hours on the phone trying to straighten out old service to new. Then 2 trips to the local Verizon store. Here's the tip. If converting from a phone/data plan, take the Internal Plan Number provided by Technomadia to the Verizon store. The Verizon rep was happy to help and had me on the way in 15 minutes. Oh, the second trip? The online folks, one of the 6 I was transferred to, lost my initial $70 to start the pre-pay. The Verizon rep fixed that too in about 10 minutes. For the area I'm in, I'm getting 6 to 8 meg down and 5 up. Good enough for uploading big files and a little entertainment on the side. Thanks again Chris and Cherie.

    New RV tire changeover ?

    X2. After 2 ugly blow outs, one at 3,000 miles and the second at 3,500 miles we did the same. Best session and money spent.
  12. Joan and I have plans to travel near the US Mexican border in January and February with stops in in Deming, Las Cruces, Tucson on the way to Vegas. So many places on the bucket list we want to visit. First RV trip to the area, so we're not familiar with the layout. But, with all the news from sourth of the border and possible military presence, is this trip a bust? I truely don't want to start a political rant, but would greatly appreciate your travel comments. Thanks much, Jerry

    January travel near the border

    Thanks everyone for the tips and recommendations. It's hard to separate the overly dramatic news until you've been there, done that. I traveled the area in my corporate days, but you know the drill - airport, rental car, motel room, meeting, reverse order. First time Joan and I are able to take 3 months and see the sites. Looking forward to taking a zillion pictures and eating where the locals go.

    January travel near the border

    Thanks much Jim. Don't mind those temps and doubt we'll cross the border. So much we want to see on this side. Have a great time in FL. We finished our 4th year this spring. Wanting to venture out a do something new. Going to be a long trip starting in GA.

    Macerator Pump

    Same as other comments plus those occasions when I had a sewer dump in a rest stop that was up a slight incline.

    Mapping Software STREETS TRIPS 2013?

    Tried WAZE a couple of times. The algorithms to route on the last mile seems to look for the shortest distance not necessarily the better roads. We were sent down some that was less than suitable for cows. I'll leave WAZE to those with a 4 wheel drive Jeep.

    Franklin Furniture

    You should have seen the expression on the faces of the 2 delivery guys when they asked where I wanted the new sofa placed and I pointed at the front door of the 5th wheel. The looks were priceless. They bet $20 bucks if they got it in the door, they wouldn't make the turn. It fit and paid for pizza the night.

    Stink Bug Apocalypse

    Stink bugs abound! Running out of options trying to fight these little devil's. They can flatten out and sqeeze in the flattest of cracks. Anyone have any tips how to minimize these critters from coming into the RV and it still be habitable?

    Stink Bug Apocalypse

    OK! We're making progress. Tried an old school trick to combat sand gnats at the beach. I took a couple of dryer sheets. The more perfume smell, the better. I wiped the outside of all of the window frames, screens and the rubber gaskets around the slides. So far so good.

    Stink Bug Apocalypse

    Hi RV_. Thank goodness these are the generic variety, kinda round stink bud. No bite, just stink when you smash 'em.
