RE: Extension cords

I haven't seen it mentioned, but don't forget the converter load in the other calculations.

RE: Cut off date for Direct TV service

There are no dome style auto-aiming dishes that can, or can be converted to, receive DTV's KA band HD transmissions. I've read that DTV will be transmitting some HD channels on the 101 KU sat that the domes can receive, but which channels those will be has not been announced as far as I know.

RE: How do I turn off my Dish network

If you're on auto-pay, you can drop out of it online and then just don't pay the next bill.

RE: Mobile hot spots

For those wondering about the Visible Party Plan and getting into group with strangers, note that each member has their own account and gets their own bill. The other members of the group only get to see your first name, area code, and the last 4 digits of your phone number. A week or so ago, I got two emails from Visible within an hour, one letting me know that someone had dropped out of my group, and the second one letting me know that a new member had joined the group, keeping my bill at $25.

RE: Mobile hot spots

We've been using a Visible R2 as a hotspot for a couple of months now, and with the Party Plan we're only paying $25/mo. I have the R2 tethered to a Pepwave router that lets us connect all of our devices as needed without being restricted by Visible's one device limit. We've found the 5 Mbps hotspot speed limit to be adequate for streaming most of the time, and general surfing all of the time. We also have a grandfathered $20/mo unlimited AT&T plan that does not have the speed restriction. Both plans are unlimited with no throttling, although both plans are subject to speed reductions on congested towers only for the duration of the usually brief congestion.

RE: senior pass

It's just one of many talking points being considered for increasing national park funding...

RE: What jack to have onboard for roadside tire changes?

Does your HR have hydraulic levelers? I've used them to raise an axle high enough to get a 20-ton bottle jack under it on occasion.

RE: ATT Mobley IP address and VPN ??

I don't recall the Mobley supporting a GPS feature...

RE: ATT Mobley IP address and VPN ??

Moving the Mobley SIM to another hotspot can give you the advantage of reception on more frequency bands as well as a better internal antenna and the option of using external antennas. Plus, the transplant hotspot will likely allow more device connections than the Mobley and is not subject to the timeout limits of the Mobley. Oh, and the built in rechargeable battery adds more portability. What are the drawbacks you see?

RE: ATT Mobley IP address and VPN ??

Depending on the device you're using, there may be add-ons or apps that you can use to "fake" your location. I use "Location Guard" with Chrome and Firefox on my laptop, and "Fake GPS" on my Android phone when I want a different location from where the device thinks I am.Location Guard won't work if the website uses your IP address to determine your location. My Mobely IP address is in Dallas, TX and that's where I usually wind up, when for example, I'm shopping online. Note that I said, "there may be add-ons or apps...", not that there absolutely is. for instance, uses the IP address as one factor in it's geo-fencing algorithm, but Location Guard or Fake GPS easily fool it into seeing you as someplace else entirely. I'm currently in upstate NY and my Connected Car Plan IP puts me in NYC, yet Locast thinks I'm in San Francisco using Location Guard or Fake GPS. The Locast app on my Firestick though, thinks I'm in NYC per the IP address. I've read that a VPN will work on the Firestick, but I have not had a need to try it yet.

RE: suggest a heated mattress cover

We've been using Electrowarmth heated mattress pads for about 20 years and love them. The queen pad in our motorhome is about 10 years old now, and has worked flawlessly. We have a 120 volt version. Electrowarmth does make 12-volt pads, but they're better suited to the narrow bunks used in truck sleepers, etc. Electrowarmth Heated Dual-control Olympic Queen-size Electric Mattress Pad

RE: Winter camping

And the lift up handle "freeze-proof" faucets I see in many colder weather parks will freeze if a hose is left connected to them with the faucet handle lifted. Unless they're heat taped as well of course...

RE: Do you need a special license to drive an RV?

I've driven several people to the NY DMV 'R' endorsement road test. They've all told me it was even simpler than the standard car license driving test. I have the 'R' endorsement although my current rig doesn't require it, but I got mine on request when I dropped my fully endorsed CDL. No road test needed.

RE: YNP to add cell phone access at Canyon Village

Here is the original story:article It is still ambiguous but the reference to microwaves seems to indicate cell phones to me. Microwave links have been used for telephone and data services for decades. They're also used to provide Internet service to cell towers, but that's far from their only use.

RE: Camping near Biltmore Estate

Our preference in the Asheville area is the Lake Powhatan Recreation Area campground in the Pisgah National Forest. The misnamed Lakeside loop has large paved full hookup sites.

RE: Dog House Spanner Key

This outfit should have the key you need: SOUTHCO VISE ACTION COMPRESSION LATCH KEY

RE: Dog House Spanner Key

I think they are asking for the cover inside cover dog house not the outside hood ? I've seen the Southco compression latches used for both applications. Our current coach also uses them for a rear compartment.

RE: Dog House Spanner Key

I don't know what latches National used on their RV's but the Southco E3 5-15 is a popular compression latch key used for some motorhome hoods and dog houses: Southco E3 5-15 Series Vise Action Nickel Plated Steel Large Compression Latch Tubular Key
