RVIA Certificate?

We are scheduled to go to a campground that is going to require an RVIA number. It is a county campground in Florida and it was very difficult to get a spot. I have never run into this before. Our Camper is an Arctic Fox and when I called Northwood they said they are not RVIA members and use Pacific West Associates to “certify” meeting standards. Has anybody run into this or have any experience with this? I’m not sure of I should just show up or try and ask them in advance.

RE: Camping off the truck

If you remove your camper a lot one option is these: Snap pads The disadvantage is you will be a bit more likely to drag a jack going through ditches and stuff. ( Don’t ask me how I know about doing that in an AF1150) One thing we use is the orange “caps” for the “Lego”levelers. Little story. We had the camper sitting on the pads on a concrete driveway. It was backing up to line up the truck with the camper before raising up the camper. We have a flat cargo carrier in the back hitch (carry a screen room and an outdoor mat in it). My wife was watching but “zoned out” for a moment and I went to far. The carrier hit the rubber stops on the camper. The camper just slid an inch back on the Orange caps. No damage, nothing bent, and we raised it up and loaded it.

RE: DRW vs SRW safety, tire blowout

We had been running around in our DRW with the camper unloaded. Loaded up the camper and my wife commented the the passenger side rear tires were really bulging. Checked and the inner tire was flat. Unload the camper and replaced the inner tire, which had a nail in it, with the spare. I have no idea when during the two weeks that the camper was off the tire went flat but, short of checking the tire pressure, I have no idea how you would know.

RE: Newbie Question on wi-fi

Meant to say tv reception is pretty good but not comparable to directional antennas. My understanding on antennas is the gateway has additional wifi antennas. Check here for the best info: Mobile internet reviews

RE: Slide out to non slide

I have an AF1150 with a full wall slide. Brother has an AF865 without a slide. I really like the 865 especially for a single person. However, for two people the slide makes a big difference as you can easily pass each other. In the 865 you are constantly getting in each other’s way. One other note about the 865. For cold weather camping there is no heat vent in the bed area and as a mid bath design the heat is slow to get to the bedroom because of the narrow passageway.

RE: Newbie Question on wi-fi

I am new to RVing and have a question on wi-fi. Our new TT came with a Winegard air 360+. My understanding is it is a HD TV antenna but also has wi-fi router capability. We would need to purchase an additional gaetway router that installs inside the RV for $300. My question is what does this do? The air360+ pulls a wifi signal from the campground (as an example - the campground would provide log in info?) and then the $300 router serves as a booster for the area around our individual TT? Can't you just use the campground wifi without a router? This is unrelated to any co-ax cable connectors on the outside of the TT, correct? The Winegard is not connected to any coax cable in the TT correct? I am a bit confused as to what we should buy or not. thanks. We have the Air360+ and the Gateway modem. The Gateway unit adds additional antennas for both wifi and cellular signals. Our experience is that: - TV reception is pretty good but do not expect it to compete with directional antennas. - WiFi is able to pull in signals our iPhones can not but most campground wifi isn’t very good. - We have been impressed with the ability to grab cell signals. As an example, we were at a harvest host farm who claimed they had not been able to get cell service but we were able to get AT&T. This has repeatedly been our experience. I attribute it to the multiple antennas and the rooftop location. Note that I believe the Gateway is only a cat4 modem so it is never supper fast. WiFi Ranger sells their Osprey unit to go with the Air360+ which can be obtained as cat6 or cat12 units so they may be much faster though I don’t know if the Osprey adds antennas like the Gateway does. Overall we have been pleased with the unit and it has given us data in a wide variety of place our phones have not been able to.
