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. Locast.org 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.com 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: Wrong Equipment?

The simplest solution would be to just move his wife Lucy's rock collection to the back of the trailer...

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

RE: Mens' belts left or right

As said, some of my belt buckles would be upside down if the free end was on the left. Other buckles wouldn't matter though...

RE: Anybody else have trouble packing for camping

As fulltimers, of course we never have to pack our RV, but our daughters do. They both have everything they don't leave in their TT's except for perishables stored in plastic totes they can quickly move to the RV's in just a few minutes. They may add some new clothes, etc, but other than that and the fresh foods, they're always good to go in just a short time without having to remember where everything is.

RE: Website Host

I've been with 1&1 IONOS for about 15 years and have been very satisfied with the features and support.

RE: rt 81

We've driven I-81 end to end in both directions in our Class A. As others have said, there's a 14' minimum height requirement on the interstate highway system.

RE: winegard carryout G3

If you'll be using the G3 with DirecTV (SD only), it'll get the job done. For use with Dish though, I recommend the Pathway X2 as the better choice. The X2 is capable of receiving both the eastern and western arc satellites for more aiming opportunities on heavily treed sites. Both dishes are easy to use with a clear line of sight to the sats.

RE: Hulu price increases TWICE this year!

In the latest count, Hulu just squeaked by Sling's subscriber count with 2.70 million subs vs 2.69 million subs. With yet another Hulu price increase, I wonder how long it'll take Sling to retake the lead...
