RE: Winegard® Connect™ 2.0 WiFi & 4G LTE

We've had the Winegard unit for 1.5 years now and generally like it. It usually improves campground wifi and when boondocking love the 4G. The data from Winegard is expensive and have bought the 10 gig plan at least 10 times. We use the data for our phones and laptop, and have a Sony smart blueray player that has wifi built in to watch YouTube on the TV. And this unit only needs 12 volts to operate. I'm not a really a geek and this thing can get quirky for me sometimes but there's a little learning curve. JK

RE: I need new Tires

I've had the Endurance for over 2 years/25,000 miles with no drama so far, but starting out with only a 1/4" deep tread depth, it seems almost half worn out when it's brand new. I had to replace the front 2 at 20,000 miles due to scrubbing the outer tread, so the need to rotate them is mandatory. JK

RE: Requesting your thoughts on Montana Super Solarflex system

Here's a biased review of the Montana Legacy with that solar package. He doesn't show a whole lot of the details about the solar, says he will in another video. Nice rig.

RE: Painfully slow internet

We use the Winegard Connect2. It almost always improves rv Park wifi. When boondocking we use the 4G feature (10 gigs for $60) for wifi hotspot. JK

RE: Wheel Bearing Repack

No, link doesn't work.... Search on NAPA's website with the part number and it'll come up.

RE: Wheel Bearing Repack

Nope- seals only. He said he couldn't believe how much retail was ($68/ea). I looked them up and NAPA's online price was something like $56/ea.

RE: Wheel Bearing Repack

I just got an estimate from the local Goodyear dealer for $275 including seals. He is old school and honest. If they're Chinese bearings, I'll have him replace them with Timkens if they're available. JK Just updating my own post. I had it done and it was $437. $165 labor, and $272 for double lip seals from NAPA.

RE: Trouble With Am I Alone?

I had the same problem for several weeks also, and as was suggested here, switched to the Trailer Life portal and now no more problems.

RE: TSD Fuel Program Update

Ha! It figures...I finally just signed up 10 minutes ago! Well, most stations around here are under $2 right now. A bargain. Probably get a good discount when prices go back up again. JK

RE: 2020 Ram 2500 CTD owners

2018 Ram Cummins 3.42 When towing my 11,000 5er, if I let it shift into 6th at around 1200 rpm @65 mph, anything more than a slight uphill grade, will cause it to drop to 5th gear. If I keep it in 5th gear, around 1700 rpm @65 mph, it will stay in 5th for most hills...not talking mountains here. So most of the time I keep it in 5th and I usually use the cruise control. JK

RE: Opininons on 2013 open range 386FLR

Open Range has many nice features, and the ones from that era are nicely appointed. But in the early years they had some structural issues, though by 2013 I think they were past that. Pay attention to the transition area from the main body to the front overhang. Look for bulges and cracks in the fiberglass of the sidewalls there (especially by those front slides), and gaps in caulk from shifting. Yes, visit our forum (a very friendly group), and many owners are very happy with their rigs. If you're new to this, hire an inspector. JK

RE: Southeast Florida to Sheboygan, Wisconsin RT

If you want to avoid Chicago, take I-74 west to I-39 north, to I-43 through Milwaukee. If going through Chicago, take the I-294 bypass in Chicago to I-94 to Milwaukee. (Sorry, I-90 doesn't go to Milwaukee Dick B, it goes northwest to Rockford/Madison). There are several state parks along Lake Michigan and they are extremely popular. Very unlikely to reserve a site now, but you might get lucky. I have no experience with the private places there to make a suggestion. JK

RE: Traveling around lake michigan

Hard to go wrong with many suggestions, but a couple of interesting things to do: Silver Lake, Michigan, north of Muskegon has sand dunes on Lake Michigan and is a popular off road area. You can rent a Jeep and go on the dunes. Solo or with a guided group. We did this and it was a blast. A little out of the way is the shipwreck museum near Whitefish Point in the U.P. I'm not a boat person, but I found it really interesting. On the way back down in Wisconsin you can skip Chicago by taking a ferry across Lake Michigan. I don't know if they can handle your rig and it would be expensive, but you'll probably never forget the ride. JK

RE: Furrion Backup Camera Quality and Performance

The first one I had I bought on Ebay 3 years ago and failed within a year (don't know why) and Furrion wouldn't honor the warranty...didn't buy from a "store". The next one didn't survive a Blue Beacon truck wash this winter (trailer was full of road salt)... my bad. The 3rd one has a better picture and sound, but this is getting expensive! They were all observation cameras. JK

RE: Jamaica Beach RV Resort

We stayed at Sandpiper 2 years ago and would never stay there again. They stuck us in a site against a 6' concrete wall that had other sites right above us. It's only a few blocks from buildings that have bars on the windows. Close to the beach was nice, but that's it. Next time we'll go to the Jamaica Beach area. JK

RE: YouTube camping videos

Watching YouTube channels are our favorite things to watch at home and in the rv. We always watch on a TV, not a phone or computer, with the sound playing through the stereo. Many, well at least some, provide good quality music, especially Grand Adventure. We watch many already mentioned in previous posts, plus: Campendium (also hosted by Jared from All About RVs) Rv Geeks Rv Lifestyles RVerTV Long, Long Honeymoon Rv Texas Y'All Next Exit JK

RE: Smart Locks

For the last 2 years, on Thanksgiving weekend RVLocks has 40% off for 1 day. I don't remember if it's Friday or Saturday. JK
