  1. Thanks. I think this thought it long gone. It just doesn't sound worth it. But thank you all.
  2. I haven't been without Internet for a year thanks to my Pepwave setup in my motorhome and roof mounted antenna. But hey, if you don't have Internet then just press the guide button haha. We'll suffer but still be able to find shows.
  3. I've been watching it. This is so needed. I'm hoping Amazon (JB) will also do the same and have some space competition. I just despise cell towers, glad someone is moving to the future. I hope they can deliver the bandwidth and grow to the needs over time. Remember what we paid for a phone in the house back in the '70's? Sucks we are paying that if not 2x and 3x (people with kids, etc.) for monthly phone costs!
  4. And that is the other option, find a place where I can buy or build a house with a garage for the motorhome. But that doesn't solve the problem of someone watching it, collecting mail, etc. while gone.
  5. Oh, I thought it used Google Home. I didn't know it could go through Amazon's Alexa system.
  6. Real-estate agents or maybe Realtor.com, etc.
  7. Yeah, I remember a guy buying a King Aire when I was at Newmar and he was dealing with insurance issues. Sounds like a tremendous hassle. This idea is fading fast
  8. I've been a member of Escapees for a year now, not too familiar with all the resources, just now learning. I was just in Benson a few weeks ago at a SP. Was a nice escape. (no pun intended)
  9. Yes I do. It sounds really complicated. Probably best to keep the RV on the personal side. Now sure how the whole Montana LLC game plays in but that's an option too.
  10. I went this year with the Newmar Kountry Klub. Doesn't matter what group you go with, go, it's an amazing event. We stayed right next to the museum in VIP West, easy walk to the field. Fun event, can be very cold in the mornings so be ready for that.
  11. They always find a way Yeah, I did the hot sauce thing too and my lab at that time wanted more haha. And yes I've had the furniture legs knawed, been there as well. I made a terrible mistake with my last lab and I'm sure not to do that again. I played "I'm gonna get it" in other words a game of chase when she had a toy. Well, my labrador "retriever" never retrieved, it was chase. She did fine off the boat and swimming for retrieving but it was hard to exercise her as we never got the fetch/retrieve concept figured out. That is not happening this time around!
  12. I'm so sick of the horrendous fees we pay for cell phones. I'm waiting anxiously for someone like Musk/SpaceX to drive the cellular prices down and offer space based internet so we can stop dealing with the mess of crappy cell towers.
  13. I got the PUK1 and 2 codes from AT&T via live chat and moved my SIM out of the Mobley and into a Pepwave BR1 MK2 LTE-A router. Works great. So if your Mobley died but the SIM still works you can try to move it but you may need a mobley (borrow one?) to put your SIM into to get the procedure to work which requires you to set a PIN code on the sim.
  14. For higher bandwidth options you could try to get into the AT&T Connected Car plan then move the line to a SIM card and then use that in a Pepwave router which I highly recommend. I personally use two Pepwave routers: BR1 MK2 LTE-A for primary, BR1 MINI LTE-A for secondary and that allows me to use two carriers simultaneously and also have wifi options. The other larger bandwidth options are prepaid unlimiteds which come and go, I got into Verizon's and they quite frankly are terrible, AT&T seems to be the top dog as of this writing. I also have a Sprint hotspot plan, it was 120 GB when I got it, the site shows 200 GB now, it works well in various areas but not as good as AT&T (I have the mobley offering). The new Pepwave firmware offers a TTL override which you can set something like "65" which I'm using now that helps prevent carriers from determining if you're on a hotspot or cell phone as they may have different speeds for each. I use various roof antennas but my favorites are the Panorama 5-in-1 and I use the 2-in-1 for the BR1 MINI. I also have SureCall and Panorama Omni's I've experimented with. https://rvforums.com/threads/cat-6-versus-cat-18-lte-modems.118/ Pepwave and Cradlepoint are the way to go now over other inferior offerings IMHO. Give 5Gstore.com a call and ask them for recommendations. That's who I did all my business with. I'm not affiliated with them.
