RE: Grand Canyon Early April

The NORTH side will be close. South open and not too many people.

RE: Need GFCI location for Carriage Cameo F35SB3

GFCI are often place in "wet" location. Check the bath room and any outside outlets -- you may have more than one.

RE: Don’t know anything

1. Used since first year deprecation on TT and TV are high. 2. Look for a floor plan with lots of storage -- not a brand name. 3. Get a Hensley Arrow or ProPride hitch.

Tafa Truck Axle & Frame Alignment 1333 Foster Ave, Nashville, TN ... They upgraded the axle on my TT. Very professional.

RE: Multiple Tire Blowouts

1. Check the tire for uneven ware. Often TT axles are not aligned and or undersized for the load since many owners only drive to the lake (a few 100 mile) a year. 2. Get the highest load range (E or 10 ply) tire you can find in your size. I also fill to maximum side wall PSI. 3. Readers will blame China made tires, but I have had low mileage blowouts with US made tire before I upgraded my axles. 4. Make sure your TT brakes do not lock up the wheels. 5. If I get 15,000 miles out of my TT tires I am happy.

Internet RV is 300 feet from home -- WIFI /??/

A few years ago I ask about how to obtain internet access at my RV that is 300 feet from my home. I received some good advice on how to transmit WIFI that far; however, I choose to run CAT5e underground. Last night the storm wiped out my Ethernet underground cable so I tried to find the conversation about extending WIFI but could not. Your suggestion are welcomed again.

RE: Please edecate me on Chromebooks

If I understand correctly the chromebook does NOT have a hard drive. Everything is on the "cloud".

RE: Moki Dugway, Should I try it?

Since you live in FLAT LAND of FL, Go for it. There is also a very interesting FREE boondocking camping spot (Muley Point Overlook N37° 14.053' W109° 59.565') if you turn left at the VERY top of the hill. The road to muley point is washboad, but the view is outstanding.

RE: 10 foot CAT5e Ethernet Cable not working

Bummer, likely the port on the laptop is damaged. Then why does it work with a 6 foot cable?

RE: 10 foot CAT5e Ethernet Cable not working

Sounds like the ethernet port is damaged on one or both ends. On the side of the 5 port hub, switch the connections being used by the laptop and printer. I have switched the ports. No luck.

10 foot CAT5e Ethernet Cable not working

For years I have ran a CAT5e Ethernet cable from my son's home to my RV. In the RV I have a LexSys 5 port hub. From the hub I run a 30 foot CAT5 cable to my printer and a 10 foot CAT5 Cable to my laptop. A few days ago (may be after a thunder storm) the connection to my laptop stopped working. I replaced the 10 foot cable with a 6 foot cable and all works OK. The 30 foot cable to the printer works OK. The 6 foot cable is a little short so I want to use a 10 foot cable. I have tried 3 different 10 foot cable and NONE will work. Can you think of any reason the 10 foot cable will not work? No Internet connection. The light on the hub (that should be green) is off with the 10 foot cable. The same with the Ethernet lights on my laptop.

RE: Dont do it go AAA instead

I am not sure what type of insurance you have. I do not expect my road side assistance insurance to pay for the price of the replacement tire. I expect them to CHANGE the tire, but not pay for the tire. I know one can purchase road harazard tire insurance when you purchase your tire - but I never have. Note the word ROAD HARAZARD.

Buffalo DriveStation 3Tb External Hard Drive -- Dead ??

I have a Buffalo DriveStation USB 3.0 3TB External Hard Drive (HD-LC3.0U3) that is "dead". Either the electronic or the HD is bad. If the electronics is bad can I take the 3Tb HD out and use the HD in my desktop computer -- I assume it is a SATA drive. If the HD is bad, can I install a replacement standard HD in the DriveStation?

RE: Figuring this power stuff has my head spinning

1. It will not help you with TV but most RVs have a 12 Volt outlet near the TV. I purchase a 12 volt multi-port USB adapter that will allow you to charge your phones from the house batteries. 2. Teach the kids to play board games or card games -- not to play with electronics. Plus you have family face time. 3. While not the best solution, you can always charge the house batteries by running your truck for a few hours. Depending on how often you camp, fuel may be cheaper than a generator.

RE: Figuring this power stuff has my head spinning

1. I do a lot of boondocking. I have never felt a need to upgrade my converter. 2. I did install a second 12 volt battery so I have two 12 volt batteries. I can camp 3 to 4 days before I need a recharge. Simply do not turn on a lot of light -- enjoy the outdoors. The refrigerator uses most of the power even when on propane. After 3 to 4 days I need to get water and want to move to a new campsite anyway. 3. I have never felt the need for an large inverter. I do have a small inverter that will run my computer. What to you plan to run that will need 110 volts. You are boondocking so enjoy nature. 4. On the last trip I did pick up a 3,000 watt Champion generator from Home Depot for less than $1,000 to run the A/C since we planed to camp at low elevation desert during the summer. At the high elevation of YS/GT you may not need the A?C

RE: sequoia national park

Since we are seniors, we stay in the park at the south entrance. Not much for small kids to do.
