  1. I've been in some severe fringe locations already such as Wahweap CG at Lake Powell and now at Grand Canyon Trailer village. No cellular boosting required, the Pepwave setup has saved the day time after time! Without it I would have no Internet!
  2. Anyone going to Quartzsite I'm selling my "used once" Weboost RV 65. https://rvforums.com/classifieds/weboost-rv-65.4/
  3. Try live chatting with AT&T. That's how I got my PUK1 and PUK2 codes. Didn't have to fight for them, was easy.
  4. Thanks. I think this thought it long gone. It just doesn't sound worth it. But thank you all.
  5. 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.
  6. 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!
  7. 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.
  8. Oh, I thought it used Google Home. I didn't know it could go through Amazon's Alexa system.
  9. Real-estate agents or maybe Realtor.com, etc.
  10. 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
  11. 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)
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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!
  15. 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.
  16. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. No, the computer and monitors are not in the picture yet as the desk was just installed in this pic. I use a 32 and 27 inch dual monitor setup with both mac and windows machines. I use ergotron mounts so I can swing the monitors out of the way to watch TV.
  19. I agree but I don't want a 42 inch crate for a lab in my RV during her puppy months. I'm not sure when she's full grown (1 year+) that I'll continue the crate in the RV. This is more for initial training and containment now while she's a puppy. I have the full size crate at home. I just don't think I can fit the crate where I want in the RV in the full size version. I'll have to do some measuring again, it would be nice to not buy two or have one wasted when she outgrows it.
  20. I have a software business and I work a good 8+ hours a day from my RV. In a home based business you can write off the square footage of your house that's the office, obviously in the RV that's negligible. For those that are using your RV for your business what are your write-offs? Anyone bought an RV under their business? Is that smart or not? Any tips on doing so? As I will also use the RV for business travel there's that aspect. My accountant hasn't been much help in this area mainly because this has been an evolving situation but I welcome tips on those that have tied their coach to their business and in what ways. My business is an S Corp.
  21. I have a software business and I bought my Class A (my first RV) realizing I could travel and still do my day job. I miss the travels from my Air Force days. Making a nice office in the coach does sacrifice some of the social aspects of it (opposing couches for company) but makes for a nice office setup. Here are a few pics of what I did. Okay well, no pictures, the attachment size limits here are way too small to share the pics it seems. But you get the point. I installed a 72 inch updesk and use a Herman Miller Aeron with the casters that auto brake until weight is on it. Note: left slide (aft of chair) is not extended in this photo.
  22. Is there a master list anywhere of where all of the campgrounds are with owner sites?
