    • You're complaining about a speed bump that is present for a reason? Look at the prices of other parks in the Bushnell area. Would you prefer that the few problems be fixed and the park rates be changed to reflect the going rates in the area? Escapees parks rates reflect rationality in a sea of insane rate hikes, and that may sometimes require acceptance of less than perfection. Also,  did you notice that half the park got upgraded to 50A electric just a few years ago? That wasn't inexpensive.
    • Is there anyone with experience using Direct TV Streaming over StarLink internet? I am a brand new StarLink and Direct TV Streaming user here.   I am still in the trial period for both.  (I am a long term Dish satellite user)  I am having problems with receiving the correct local channels.  We are located about 20 air miles W of Portland, OR and want the Portland local channels.  We also change our local channels about 15-20 times a year.  Sometimes every couple of days, other times we stay put for a few months.  Changing locals for Dish is a bit of a pain, but it works.   Our hope is to move to StarLink so we have strong internet speeds everywhere we go, including places w/o cell service. When I initially installed and configured the new Direct TV dongle (Gemini) and connected it to my StarLink network, I started receiving the Seattle local channels.  (My billing address is in the San Antonio, TX area.)  I spent about 1.5 hours in a chat session with Direct TV.  They changed my home address (and probably billing address) to our son's address just outside of Portland.  Then doing a factory reset to the Gemini and re-configuring, the Portland locals connected.   Overnight I turned off the Gemini and the next late afternoon when I turned it back on, I found out I was connected to the Medford, OR (far south Oregon) local channels.  This morning I turned on the Gemini and we were still had the Medford locals.  I turned off StarLink and connected to the internet through my Verizon jetpack.  Still had the Medford locals.  I continued testing, by doing a factory reset on the Gemini and configuring to my Verizon jetpack.  Lo and behold, I now have Portland locals. My conclusion: --  The Gemini at configuration (and maybe at other times) will change the local channels to where ever the over-the-air internet connection, connects to the ground station.  With StarLink satellite, it connects to the ground station in many different locations maybe several hundred miles from my physical location .  In my case that could be anywhere within a few hundred miles of Portland. --  While the billing address may affect where the local channels are selected (which is what I believe I have read on DTV's website is supposed to happen)  it seems as though the locals key in on wherever the ground station is located.  Does anyone have experience using Direct TV Streaming with StarLink? I am probably going to cancel Direct TV Streaming over this.  Also there are lot of things with using the remote, selecting recordings and things in general are not working nearly as well as Dish does.  It could be that Direct TV Satellite DVR works better.  But this Gemini thingy isn't working for me.

    • On the other hand, my brand new Casita had rubber stems on it on which I installed TST monitors.  Within 1,000 miles from new, the stem flexed so much that it rubbed a hole in the rubber and lost tire pressure faster than I could get it off the road driving at 60 mph. Photo is of the rim after a new tire and metal stem was installed.  You can see where the rubber stem had rubbed against the rim.  I had metal stems installed on the other wheels, which showed signs of similar stem wear. All rubber stems are not built alike.
