RE: Towing a Miata ND

What are the chances that they will read this post? I'd say that the chances are pretty good. YOU read it. While waiting I would do a Google search or get on a Miata forum or contact the manufacturer. Already did that B4 I came here. Google and the Manufacturer don't tow one so they don't know the answers. Tim

Towing a Miata ND

I think there are at least TWO Miata ND owners here who RV tow their cars. IF so, would you please PM me? I've got a couple of questions. Thanks, Tim

RE: RV Weather Station

any thoughts on how to protect it in between set ups? When transporting my RV sensor, in the "basement" of the RV, I sandwich the sensor unit between 2 old FOAM RUBBER bed pillows within an old (60s-70s) Samsonite, hard side, overnighter size, suitcase. I could drop it off a building and not hurt it. I remove the 4 AA cells unless the sensor is actually on the pole. The home sensor does not leave the pole in the back yard. Tim

RE: RV Weather Station

Looking for recommendations for a RV weather station (wind speed, temp, barometer). I have TWO Acu Rite systems which I bought on Amazon. The 5 sensor array for the home unit is mounted 14 feet over a 6 foot fence so as to get the sensor up into "clean" air for accurate readings. The home unit has a Wi-Fi connection so that I can see the Home weather on my phone while on the road. https://i.postimg.cc/prGx8xcs/Weather-Station-Home2.jpg The sensor array for the RV unit is mounted 8 feet above the roof for the same reason. The sensor array does NOT stay up when travelling. In my opinion, it is not a good idea to mount the sensor array on a telescoping "flag" pole. The weight of the array will cause the pole to collapse. https://i.postimg.cc/13gNQTrM/Weather-Station-RV2.jpg The link between both sensor arrays and their display is wireless. The sensor array uses 4 AA batteries. I've had the home unit for about 3 years and the RV unit for about 2 years. Battery life seems to be about 9 - 12 months. Each unit has its own display, here is the information that it shows. The display can be plug-in or battery (6 ea. AA). The display is actually rectangular, but the angle of the picture makes it look funny. https://i.postimg.cc/4dv909Qg/Weather-Station-Display.jpg PM me if you want or need any additional information.

RE: Low power home UPS

I'm looking for a UPS device I can plug into my home router that has just enough power/smarts to send an email or SMS message before it dies and another one when power is restored. I just checked Craigslist.com, Dallas (were I live) and found 5 of them for sale. Priced $50 - $150. Check out your local craigslist. I have had one in-line since the 90s. If/When the power goes out, mine will power the laptop for 2-3 hours and a string of LED lights (probably) for months. Tim
