RE: WiFi Issues

Have you considered changing providers when your TOGO plan expires and then continue using the TOGO? Now that Winegard/TOGO has unlocked this unit, accessing the administration menu and then using another provider's SIM is relatively easy. It's unfortunate that AT&T ended their agreement with TOGO but, if the TOGO has worked for you, changing out the SIM is very easy and certainly an option. There is no one specific answer to our internet solution as RVers but, having redundancy seems to work well for us. We have an unlimited hotspot phone plan with Verizon and then switched to a Cricket Wireless data plan for our TOGO when we lost the original plan. Just another set of options perhaps for you to consider.

RE: Cost to install apparatus for Flat-towing

Michael: You have received information on several different types of set-ups and costs already so now your task is to do more research on the specific types you are interested in. Perhaps you have already did your due diligence but, here''s my 2 cents if you have not. I would suggest you direct your search to the type of coach you have-gas vs diesel and the type of toad. The reason I suggest to limit your search to specific vehicles is that some systems are easier to install than others depending upon what you have (does your toad need a transmission lube pump, anything additional to make it 4 down towable, etc.) and the type of Class A rig you are pulling it with makes a difference too. All systems have owners who have had great performance or equally unfortunate issues. Find your comfort level with the choice you make and then inspect your set-up frequently while towing-nothing is fool-proof. One addition that most systems make optional is a coach indicator that notifies you when the toad brakes are being applied. This in my opinion is a MUST and will help to eliminate many of the problems you hear about when using any of the brake/tow bar systems. There's a difference in those indicator systems too so, pay attention to how they operate and again, make your choice on what will work best for your situation.

RE: Water pressure problem

Another angle to consider when addressing poor water flow, I seemed to be constantly cleaning lime and calcium deposits from the faucet aerators until I finally installed a water softener on our coach. Problem solved.

RE: Looking for info on TSD Logistics

I have been using their diesel fuel pricing program since August and am impressed by their service. You might want to follow them on Facebook and learn more about how other RVers are benefiting from their program on the Facebook-TSD Logistics RV Group. I will agree, when I originally heard about TSD Logistics, it did sound too good to be true but, it really is a great tool to have when searching for fueling options of your diesel rig.

RE: Class A Fulltimer freeze concerns

Does your Ventana have the optional hydronic heating system? Newmar for the 2017 model had the Oasis system available that works very well in cold weather. Our coach uses the AuquaHot Hydronic heating system which is similar and keeping any area of the coach warm is not an issue. We are currently near zero temps here in the mid-west (waiting until next week when we head south finally!) and the storage areas/wet bay as well as the living area do not fluctuate more than a few degrees as the AuquaHot cycles. As mentioned earlier, monitor your coach temps with wireless sensors and then you will know exactly what is going on.

RE: Dish Channels

I am missing CBS and a local (AZ) 3. I suspect it is a "negotiating situation" with Dish and the provider as has already been mentioned but, have you checked on your Guide for "All Subscribed" and then see if the stations appear? I've been fooled by this one a couple of times-especially when moving out of the previous spot beam.

RE: TOGO comments?

In the next week or ten days I'm going to buy a TOGO system and then the AT&T package. Anyone have any negatives that will persuade me not to? I understand it isn't perfect but it seems to be heads above anything else. Verizon may be better but they aren't offering anything in the same ball park. We have been using the TOGO Roadlink C2 now for about 2 months while traveling through the mid-west and the UP Michigan and it has worked as advertised. Not the latest and best architecture perhaps but coupled with unlimited data for $30/month makes the package very attractive. I was interested in having some redundancy and so adding the AT&T plan coupled with our Verizon data on phones gives us about the best connectivity that I believe we could put together for the best price. We are very pleased with the performance of the TOGO. We are very satisfied with our decision to install the TOGO.

RE: WiFi, and Cell Phone boosters and Internet antennas

Anyone tried the Togo Roadlink C2 which is ATT and Wingard? Wingard provides a dome with three WIFI antennas and ATT the service for $360/year unlimited Yes. Installed the TOGO last month so not a lot of time yet but, it's been functioning flawlessly 24/7 since my installation on our coach. Read David Bott's Reviews on the TOGO if you would like more information. We also have Verizon phones that we use as back-up when necessary. Reliable internet access seems to require us to have redundancy and AT&T coupled with Verizon networks have worked well.

RE: remote temperature monitoring

I wonder how long the battery life of the GoVee is and if it notifies you ahead of time that the battery needs to be changed. The article/video did not have this information. I have only personally been using the GoVee for a few weeks and so cannot comment on whether a low battery alert will be sent-I do not believe it will however. The battery life can be stretched some by setting it's monitoring function at a less frequent interval. But, the app does show a "battery level meter" which does give you some idea it appears of the unit's power left. No question the subscription based cellular systems work well as my RVPetSafety unit on the Verizon network has worked without a hitch whenever temps/Humidity are out of range or if onboard 120v has been lost. Bottom line, there are good options available to send alerts and different ways/costs to make it happen.

RE: remote temperature monitoring

As has already been mentioned, having reliable WIFI or cell service availabl and having it available if you loose power will determine what you can use. Either system from Marcell or RV PetSafety use a cellular network (Verizon or AT&T) so no WIFI is required and are subscription based so there is an ongoing cost so if considering this technology, compare features and costs and see what works for you. Other options that are available if you have reliable WIFI include temperature monitors that will connect to your own WIFI network. The advantage with this type is that there is no ongoing subscription costs. A recommended unit is the GOVEE Temperature device. Read David Bott's Review. Disadvantage with this is that it does not notify if power is lost-just when temp and humidity are out of the desired ranges. I have AGS so power is restored automatically via the generator if electrical loss creates a demand. I have used both the RV PetSafety and the GOVEE Temperature units and can attest that each work as advertised and will perform the function(s) you are asking about. You must look at what your needs are and then look at the technology that works in your situation.
