  1. Dang. I've been hiding my extra $100 bills in a bank pouch in the outside storage compartments. Common keys? Who knew?
  2. You're lucky the codes don't specify gross weights, as they do in the areas I live. Something to the effect of: ANY vehicle over 10,000# GVWR can't be parked on residential property (ahead of the setback line) more than 72 hours. Certain exceptions apply such as during construction or remodeling, demolition, etc. But this means,. motorhome, truck, dump trailer, camper, RV, box truck, cargo van, travel trailer....classification is irrelevant, weight rating is what they go by here. If you go in trying to change the law, they might slip this into the codes...ooops.
  3. Choices, choices. Ain't life grand?
  4. I saw that too...they want my $900 before they 'give it away' to me.
  5. Are you wanting to add a starting module? If so, 2 or 3 batteries will be fine with that module.

    Keto friendly! 😉
  7. That's a good thing! .....especially if you want a big ticket loan in the future.
  8. You might look into a loan from your 401k, that is if you have one and if your employer allows it. It's not the best option, but it might be AN option. Good luck.
  9. In 2014 there was an explosion and fire deep inside the WIPP containment caves....clouds of radioactive smoke poured out, workers were exposed, downwind residents were evacuated, nearby roads were closed...I bet NO ONE...ZILCH...ZIP...reading this knows what the hell I'm talking about UNTIL they google it. It was not well covered by the mass media at the time. And unlike others here, I don't copy and paste a wall of text knowing everyone will scroll past it anyway. But I knew about this event (and was in the area) as it was happening. This is one of the troubling aspects of nuclear energy and weapons production and waste containment:...the fact that we don't know what we don't know. Example: Do you know what a TRUPACT is without using google or another search engine? I'm only trying to make a point.....did it work?
  10. Fukishima or 3 mile or Chernobyl in my neighborhood? NIMBY and proud of it.
  11. Huh...well why didn't I think of that? Oh wait...I did. As I stated in my first post in this thread, I wont be ordering it, unless they can come up with a more robust antenna suitable for fixed use.
  12. 'Tested' at 75 mph, but rated for much less....heck the wind is blowing here at about 50 mph right now as I type this. We can get 90 mph winds 2 or 3 times a year where I live. And 50-65 mph winds are fairly common. Starlink says that it's best to remove the dish and secure it against damage during storms. Huh? Well I'm not gonna climb up on my roof every time we get a few raindrops....maybe I need to dig a big hole in the ground and bury it with the dish just about even with the ground level...but then I need a sump pump in case it rains....yeah they just need to come up with something less 'plasticky'.
