We use a combo of Visible phones and WeBoost Cell booster. Visible uses the Verizon network. That gives us service about 90% of the time. Not always strong service tho. Visible provides unlimited hotspot service but only 5 mb/sec. You probably should get a combination of Verizon and ATT phones to improve your coverage. You will want a booster too. We ran into some surprising Verizon gaps. We made 40 stops from FL up thru TN and into MN then west thru SD, WY, UT, NM, TX and back to FL. We have a 20 ft cell phone antenna pole. If you need consistent strong video then the only real option is satellite

RE: Towing with lifted truck; need assistance

Let me ask a question: how many are in your family (that would go camping) And two how far are you thinking about going? Personally I suspect that you could only safely tow a very light trailer. A popup or Trailmanor/HiLo As for hitches: Amazon WDH But again call one of the manufacturers to get expert advice. I might avoid Camco who has no reputation in the WDH field. Blue OX is very heavy I believe which might compound your problems. ETrailer is another phone option, they specialize in trailer equipment. I think any of them will see flashing red lights screaming LIABILITY ALERT!!! when you call

RE: Towing with lifted truck; need assistance

You'd need a weight distributing hitch NOT a simple drop receiver. I'd pick a brand of wdh and call their tech dept. I would not be optimistic they are designed for a standard geometry truck.

RE: Southern Utah with kids

That is a lot of doing for 2 weeks. There isn't much between Kanab and Lake Powell, especially once you get past Jacob Lake. Which is the entry way to the North Rim of the Canyon.

RE: Southern Utah with kids

Coming from Seattle I would certainly try to stop at Lassen Volcanic NP. It's a mini Yellowstone for volcanic features and not much visited. Excellent in park camp. The major negative is that it is in Cali but coming from WA you should be prepared.

RE: Southern Utah with kids

Coral Pink Sand Dunes state park should be a hit with the kids. Zion and Arches can be very hot and very packed. Canyonlands is usually comparatively empty and has boondocking. Dead Horse State Park is another good spot. Lots of boondocking east of Arches. Escalante has lots of slot canyons and Hole in the Wall. Boondocking in the NF. Kodachrome SP. Bryce not quite as crowded and lots of Boondocking in the surrounding area and two campgrounds inside the park. Much cooler too.

RE: Toilet seat cover ???

Have you tried Lowes or Home Depot. Take the cover with you and see if you can match it to one they have. Otherwise Amazon tho finding a good match may be harder. Covers and seats come as a pair usually.

RE: Norcold control panel?

Amazon, put in the model number and eyebrow or optical board. Should be around $175 . Be very careful with the ribbon cable connection Make sure this is the right model

Diesel crisis ahead

Or maybe here already: We just traveled from Livingston to Pensacola and were taken aback by the diesel prices vs gasoline. Over $1.50/gal. Both are outrageously high. As we left Texas we saw a $4.34 price, but once across the Louisiana line they jumped to over $5 and stayed there thru LA, MS and AL. MS had rather cheap, comparatively speaking prices this summer as we passed thru. No more. Even in FL prices hovered around the $5 mark even on the NAS base. I have not seen any discussion of this but there is a major diesel shortage getting started. Remember that diesel and fuel oil used for home heating are essentially the same product and are competing for the same feed stock. Semi's, farmers, diesel pickups and the NE fuel oil users ate about to be slammed. Major oil company warning

RE: Yellowstone roads closed!

So why mention it at all? Money in the case of researchers and social credit from their fellow cultists. World wide temps have been flat for the last eight years, IIRC during this second flat temp period, the first lasted a couple of decades.

RE: fresh water hose

We used one for quite awhile. It was white and I do not recall what color the fittings were. Try using quick connects. We switched over to Flexilla hose plus quick connects.

RE: Yellowstone roads closed!

We used the timed entry at RMNP this summer. Stopped on the road to make the reservation on the way in to the west side. Paid up. Got to the gate and was waved right thru, no timed check.

RE: Rockport, TX is Open Ready for Winter Texans!

We are near Bryan right now for an overnight. Headed to the coast area tomorrow for a week before heading east for winter where we own some land. I think we drove past a sign for Rockport today.

RE: Check Valve NPT & Shurflo Pump is NPS

Just go to a hardware store with the valve and get a male (MPT) nipple. They will have a selection of lengths and sizes. Cost a couple of bucks, they will have plastic and steel, and maybe brass to pick from. If you need a male to female, they will have a selection of those couplings too. Get a roll of Teflon tape and tape the threads.

RE: TIRES,,,,,need 4

I also have a 2012 Ram with 20 inch rims. I put Cooper tires on mine and love them. I went with Cooper Discovers 18" on our new to us 18 RAM. After a lot of investigation the Discovers are designed for a tow vehicle with the tread wrapped around the sides to provide extra stability. Originally I was looking at Michelins but they are getting terrible reviews lately. Tread separation around 20000 miles and so on. I haven't seen a bad review of the Coopers. YMMV

RE: RV Cell booster

WeBoost RV is probably the current leader, Amazon has a number of no name versions too,

RE: Insulating outdoor caged water holding tank

Foam insulating sheets, as thick as you can find, probably 4 or 6 inch with an electrical heating element inside if it gets really cold. Use multiple 2 inch sheets if you cannot find thick stuff. Do not use fiberglass insulation, it's worthless if it gets wet. Have a removable insulated lid to provide access to the tank. I'd probably wrap the whole thing protective material like 3/8 painted outdoor plywood

RE: Boondock sites in southern CO and northern AZ

The areas south of Williams are Forest Service land and there are many beautiful campsites available. Do you mean north of Williams? There are many FS campss right outside the GCNP gate, or actually just outside that little town there. If you are going near Alamosa there is BLM land west of Great Sand Dunes and a strange ex-Colorado State Park there with free power, no water.Great spot but requires a CO Fishing permit. There is FS land all along the highway to Cortez.
