RE: Any option for re-filling MH Propane Tank from Small Tank?

Simplest, and most effective, solution is to call a propane company that delivers, explain your situation and ask them for a solution. Most likely they will have one of their trucks meet you somewhere (safe) to fill your tank. Now if you're in downtown New York or Los Angeles it's not going to happen but most everywhere else, it's a no brainer.....Dennis Good luck with that. I've dealt with three different residential propane companies for our upstate NY family cottage bulk tank, and all three company's delivery drivers have told me they're not allowed to refill the 29 gallon ASME tank on our motorhome when they were there to refill 320 gallon bulk tank. Two drivers did fill it for me a few times, but made I sure I knew they were violating a company policy they didn't agree with. Both of them were fellow RV owners... ;)

RE: Visible Wireless Feedback

I believe joining another group will drop you out of the first one, but I have not tried it. I should mention that now they do allow more than four members in a group, but the maximum discounted price is still $25. The advantage to more members of course, is that if one drops out there's still no price change, so the more the merrier.

RE: Visible Wireless Feedback

Instead of trying to fill your own "Party", just go to this Reddit page and join one of the several existing parties listed and enjoy the savings. Now that more than four people can join a party, the risk of losing a member has pretty much been eliminated. Visible Party Pay

RE: Too old to drive ?

I note that you said you were comfortable driving your pickup. Have you considered a medium sized travel trailer instead of a motorized RV? The trailer would need to be within your truck's tow ratings of course.

RE: Loss of Credit Cards and other Important Items

If you want the security of another credit card while you're waiting for replacement cards, use either another credit card or bank cash withdrawal to purchase a VISA or MasterCard gift card in whatever amount works for your interim needs.

RE: Visible Wireless Feedback

Trying to find out from Visible about data plans for my hot spot. Can't find any contact info any where. How does one go about contacting them? Visible only sells an unlimited voice/text/data phone plan, no data plan for hotspots. Some of us have removed the SIM from our Visible phones and installed them in Verizon compatible hotspots with no complaints from Visible so far.

RE: Changed to Dish

Dish and Directv both suck. That's not helpful...

RE: Deleting Book from Cloud

Doesn't she have access to the cloud account where she can see what's stored there? And delete unneeded files?

RE: Atwood 8500 series furnace bench test on high limit switch

Why not just replace it with a new one as long as you're already in there? For the $15 or so they sell for, I wouldn't waste my time on the old one. Save it for a spare...

RE: Visible Wireless Feedback

We're using our Visible data service with our main TV, Dish Hopper w/Sling, two FireTVsticks, two laptops, two cell phones, and two tablets. Our Visible SIM is in a Novatel Verizon 7730L Jetpack that supports fifteen connected devices and is connected to one of two MIMO antenna sets. So far in our travels up and down the east coast and currently in Florida, we haven't found any place where we didn't have at least some service. Sometimes it's been marginal for streaming in the weaker signal areas not surprisingly. We do have an alternate service for those times though. Connecting to our directional MIMO antenna pair and peaking the signal helps quite a bit. We've used over 150 GB a month on a number of occasions with no complaints from Visible. We've been in a Visible "Party Pay" party almost since they introduced the feature, and have never paid more than $25/mo. since joining. Early on we lost a couple of party members, but they were quickly replaced within hours. I can't speak to the Visible customer service since I've never needed it. All in all we've been very pleased with our Visible service and have no intentions of dropping it any time soon.

RE: Overnight

St Marys, GA is just a couple of miles from the Florida line on I-95. The Walmart there appears to be ok and reportedly quiet, but a call to verify access wouldn't hurt. Saint Marys Walmart Supercenter

RE: Gas Credit Cards

our preference for fuel stops in the MH is Flying J so we have their Pilot/Fkying J RV Plus Card charge card. we have a Pilot near our home so we tend to gas the cars there. the card gets us a $0.05 p/g discount. otherwise we just use our Discover card. we stopped carrying gas CCs decades ago. We use our Good Sam "Swipe and Save" card for the $0.05/gallon discount at PFJ's, and then pay with our PenFed Cash Rewards Visa card that adds an additional 5% rebate. It all adds up...

RE: Texas winterizing...

Why water pipes in the ceiling? Hasn't anyone ever seen two story houses with upstairs plumbing?

RE: wind power

A common thread regarding wind and solar power generation is about the lack of bulk storage for the periods those technologies are not generating power. Battery technology is improving, but still has a long way to go for the bulk capacities needed for fossil fuel power plant replacement. But there is an old tried and true power storage technology that's been around for years and is now seeing renewed interest. Take a look at these articles on pumped storage: Pumped storage gets a boost (or two) in the US And this one from Duke Energy: Pumped-Storage Hydro Plants

RE: Navigation

We get around quite well using a fairly basic Garmin Novi 52 GPS that's a few years old. With lifetime updates, it stays pretty current on routing changes, and the POI (Points Of Interest) files I've added from free online sources alert us to low clearances, upcoming rest areas, fuel stops, etc. Off hand, I don't recall seeing any publicly available navigational aids with "avoid left turns" type of features. "Fastest", "Shortest" type routing is pretty standard, and there are apps and GPS's that will take the height and length of your RV/truck into consideration in routing though.

RE: Cell coverage in Death Valley

Asking a simple question about the status of current technology in specific areas has nothing to do with how things were done before that technology existed. We all know the answer to how it was done back then. I would question how many died before modern technology existed that it could have saved. Knowing what technology is available in your area of travel just makes good sense to me...

RE: wind power

It appears to me that most of the country's power grid is just fine. May be Texas needs a few lessons on the best way to create electricity Guy Or at least take lessons from the parts of Texas that are having minimal problems like the El Paso area that's connected to the western US power grid. The map linked below is pretty telling in showing that the areas under RECOT control were the hardest hit, while those connected to the national power grid system were much less affected.

RE: New outside shower mod

I'd want a short hose to be able to make it practical. bumpy Yep, our former Class C had an outside shower with a hose and handheld head. The only mod we made was adding a bracket at an appropriate height on the wall for hair washing, etc.
