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. 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. 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. PM me if you want or need any additional information. Tim

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, 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
