RE: Star Link

Latency is not an issue, period.May not be for an internet user, but latency is a big concern for businesses. Amazon has said their research indicates they lose $160 million in sales annually for every 100 milliseconds (0.1 sec) of latency. The reason Amazon AWS is so focused on keeping it to a minimum.Compared to what? The Federal incentives are to cover the many rural people operating at dialup speeds or no access. This has to be a vast improvement.

RE: Star Link

The incredible speeds shown on the Youtube videos occurs when you are standing right next to the Starlink router. In my home, the router is 30 feet away and the signal passes through the floor of my living room. In my case, this cuts the bandwidth down from 100 Mbps to about 40 Mbps.Is there no ethernet connection to get through obstructions?

RE: Star Link

Only about 8% of the satellites have been launched. Also the satellites are getting improvements as they go. Current situation will improve.

RE: Will this be covered, put on spare tire.

Hello... We have the P!atinum roadside coverage. Right now our 5th wheel is in storage with one flat tire. Next week I am taking it in for 5 new tires but cannot safely drive it to Discount Tires. If I have a service truck brought to storage to switch out tires will this be covered? Thank youI don't think you get to choose the service truck.

RE: parking on hill

I would have bolted the wedge to the board for the rear tire instead of using the 4x4. More like the second picture. Skip the front wedge. Adjust as you please next time you have it out. Fine for today. Eventual retaining wall would resolve everything.

RE: Bluetooth Adjustable Converter?

Been 8 years since I set my solar controller. Have not even looked at the settings since. Why would I want that on my phone? 14.4, 13.6, 13.2 is fine for the converter. Yes If I went lithium I might want something else. Although I have my doubts. BT program on my phone should not be needed. I would deal with it if BT/phone was necessary but would not seek it out. I expect to use same battery format for 6 to 8 more years. Will see what is needed if I move to a MH after that time. Remember I don't even have a real battery monitor. ;) Never seemed to need it.

RE: Bluetooth Adjustable Converter?

If you are in range of BT you can just hit the Wizard if you are so inclined. I will be out on a hike or fishing while you tend this trivia.

RE: Would you back a camper for someone?

Most certainly. But you need to wave me over. I would not be inclined to intrude unless asked.

RE: Trailering

I try to avoid gas in the city and watch for truck stops out on the highway. Otherwise I just wait my turn at the most accessible slot. If I unhitch for the night I make sure to be topped off for leaving.

RE: Changing Tires

If it is hitched or unhitched.... If I need to change a tire, I change the tire. No need to mess with the hitch.

RE: Bluetooth Adjustable Converter?

As I said... if it is working correctly I don't need to monitor it. The good converters have a timer.

RE: Bluetooth Adjustable Converter?

Nope. Would not use it. I really try to avoid the phone thing when camping. And it it works properly I don't need to monitor it.

RE: Bed level of new trucks

Nothing new. I said the same when I bought my F150 20 years ago. A person really needs to be 6'3"+ to be able to reach over the bed rail and grab something comfortably.

RE: Norcold Fridge on Propane Question

Really? What is an RM8,there is virtually no info on the net.Actually there is. See remarks below your post.

RE: Better ride when not towing?

Could weigh the truck and use the tire weight chart to reduce pressure.

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

Many years ago I worked for the Forest Service burning logging slash piles. We used back-pack propane torches. When the torch bottle was empty, we returned to the pickup and filled the bottle from a 100 pound cylinder in the back of the truck. Liquid transferred from the big cylinder to the little bottle using only the pressure in the big cylinder. Of course, we had to open the "80% valve" on the little bottle to relieve the pressure so it would fill properly. As soon as we got liquid from the "80% valve" we shut off the valve on the big cylinder, shut off the valve on the little bottle, disconnected the hose, connected the torch and went back to lighting fires. This long dissertation is just to illustrate that it IS possible to transfer liquid propane without a pump. Is it "safe"? Probably not. Anytime a flammable gas is vented to the atmosphere it can be dangerous. Good luck.Done on the farm all the time. Need a tank that will supply liquid from near the bottom. Perfectly safe using standard precautions. Not so easy to measure and charge by volume. Probably takes a bit longer so more propane is lost gassing off the top of the filled cylinder.

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

The pressure in your tank varies with temperature. If you want to transfer the LP, you need different pressures. Cool the receiving tank in an ice water bath. If not practical, heat the full tank with hot water. To move liquid you would need to cool the tank to maybe -45 degrees maybe a little lower. OK it would move as a gas and condense into liquid in the very chilled tank. Dry ice at -78F would do the trick.

RE: Has camper quality gotten any better in the last 10 years?

Customers demand light and cheap. What exactly do you expect to get? Every year the builder finds a new method to make the camper a bit lighter and cheaper. There are some with quality. They are expensive and heavy. Still not always perfect.

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

I'm not a specialist on this, but a question, Since many people run a portable grill from a low pressure line run from the RV system, Why , couldn't you attach a tank with a grill regulator to one of those fittings to basically back feed the system after turning off your main tank?You can certainly run the RV like this and save what is in the RV propane tank. System needed is described above.

RE: Tesla is thinking of making a Van. B plus MOHO?

Battery should last 20+ years and currently prices are still dropping. I know this is an apples to oranges comparison, but if those "20+ years" of expected battery life are anything like the "22+ years" some of my LED replacement light bulbs promised me on the package, we're going to be in trouble. LOL I've changed probably 20-25% of the LED bulbs I've installed since I converted our sticks & bricks house to LEDs about 4-5 years ago. And they didn't get bounced around on New England's famous pot-hole filled roads for 6 months of the year! Just saying! :) ~RickALL my home LED and RV LED lamps are still working. Some more than a decade. Even if you have a few fail you have collectively saved enough electricity to pay for replacements. LED bulbs will definitely pay for themselves in direct costs. An EV maybe not so much. You did not go back to incandescent did you?
