RE: Where are all of the snowbirds?

We just changed one of our overnights while we travel to our winter destination and found that openings were sparse. We were a bit surprised that Florida State parks now have “booking” and “utility” charges that add 13 bucks to the site fee. We still think these are some of the best State Parks in the country, but why hide it until checkout. Dave

RE: New class B

A buddy of mine is having one of these built on the Ram chassis. Dave

Thanks for all the updates as I need to renew next week. Dave

RE: Aqua Kem question

I stopped using anything 3 years ago after living on a boat where nobody thinks about that because the tanks vent properly. Turns out my RV vents properly too. Dave

RE: How to prevent Keirig from freezing??

You would lose that bet. There are videos of how to fully drain a Keurig. It is not a simple process. You're right, I just dismantled one to see the inner workings after it quit. Seemed like it was the pump that crapped out, but even turning it upside down and all other directions, about 1/2 cut of water remained inside.Sounds like running vodka is the cheapest/best solution. I think I’d substitute bourbon to make the morning cup of joe a bit more fun :w. Dave

RE: How to prevent Keirig from freezing??

Why would you be staying in motel rooms when you're pulling a place to sleep with a furnace ? I don’t have a trailer but do have a Class B. Generally when we leave for Florida the temp is 15-20 F. When we arrive at our first overnight the coach is warm and I plug in and put on the Truma furnace on electric. Even with this we usually stay winterized for the first two nights but we are nice and warm. I can’t imagine dragging a trailer all day in below freezing temps and not expect it to be cold soaked when pulling over for the night. I think I’d sleep in a motel too! But I’m just supposing this is the OP’s situation. Dave

RE: How to prevent Keirig from freezing??

For those wondering why the OP lets his trailer get so cold while he’s using it, it appears to be because when the temps are really low he stays in a motel. I suspect this is why he mentioned keeping it in the truck/motel for 3 days, probably while heading south. Dave

But the devices won't care about the modem, they will connect to the router, and the router will have the same SSID and password. Typo on my part. The OP said they were replacing a combo modem/router, not just a modem. The router will have a new MAC address which may or may not cause the password to be re-entered on each connecting device. Dave

I’ll be interested I hearing what the OP reports about having to provide the password for each computer/phone etc. Since the modem will also have a new MAC address I suspect that maybe each device will see this and request the password instead of using a stored one. I seem to recall having run across this but it was a year or two ago so I’ve forgotten. Dave

RE: StarLink internet without an address

Of course if you read the article you learn it isn’t exactly mobile: “…What we recently figured out was how to mount a Starlink on top ,” Mullenweg told Protocol. “You can’t drive around with it, and I think it’s geo-locked to just the Wyoming region,” Dave

RE: Coach Net has wrong name on my account

Since I’m about to renew with Coach-Net does anyone have another recommendation? I had Good Sam in my earlier RVing days and were satisfied with the response, but when we started up again I decided to avoid all of the GS mail and ads and went with Coach-Net. We haven’t needed to call them yet. Dave

RE: The RV Demand Continues

They’re always overpriced by 30-40% which is why everyone gets one-third off, and if the quality was lower than 50% they would just deliver a bunch of parts and we would build them ourselves. But welcome to the forum! I look forward to seeing those full lots myself when we head south next month. Although I don’t know where people are going to use them after they drive off the dealership lot ‘cause everything’s full up. Dave

RE: Windows 11

Just no reason to make the move. 10 works fine and has support for 3+ years. Dave

RE: StarLink internet without an address

Hi, I don't understand why a "plus code" is any better than the gps numbers. This person has a fixed location but no fixed address. Not every location on earth has a fixed street address but does have a lat/long location and therefore a Plus Code. On Edit: Plus code is simply a lot easier to use and less prone to errors than lat/long numbers. Since this is a fixed location there is no need for a mobile antenna, a fixed one will work as long as the location has Starlink service available and clear sky access. Dace

RE: StarLink internet without an address

… And really easy to locate one via Google Maps. OK if you have internet service which the OPs relative doesn't. So convert the GPS location to plus code.. Let’s work this problem… a) the OP managed to post here; and b) apparently knows the location of his friend because he plans to deliver a Starlink kit. My conclusion is the OP can manage to Google a location and obtain a Plus code and pass it along. Dave

RE: StarLink internet without an address

Wow, very interesting info re: Plus codes. Who knew there was still stuff to learn :B ! And really easy to locate one via Google Maps. Dave

RE: electrical question, how to make clearance lights blink

You might get one of these and you can turn any 110 volt light up to 60 watts into a flasher. Might be easier than trying to rig your trailer clearance lamps. You could mount it to your trailer antenna or near the clearance lights. Dave

RE: Ford Pass app

I have a new Bronco Sport and added Ford Pass my phone. I’m sure it is all about the data but I weighed the pros and cons and decided there was little data about my car that wasn’t already being collected and made available (at least for me as a Massachusetts resident). So far it’s made using the Ford Pass points easier and this morning, as we finally dropped to the low 30’s, it informed me that my tires all need air! I added my wife’s Explorer and it notified me she had a recall, but I didn’t enable it in Sync (not sure that’s available on her 2018 version). Dave

RE: WiFi Booster

For years I used a directional USB antenna/amplifier and it worked great. Then it didn’t because too many people were on the CG WiFi. I switched to cell service and use that over 90% of the time. Dave

RE: RV Park Wi-Fi Issues

It’s not the “accessibility and attractiveness “ of a WIFI site. Picture yourself at a Starbucks, Mickey D’s, or wherever trying to locate the “public” WIFI site. Easy to latch onto a nefarious imitation. Now picture yourself at a campground where you were handed the name and password of the legit WIFI site when you check in. See the difference? I always use cell access from my phone or cell modem/router, but I have no fear of WIFI site at campgrounds after applying a bit of appropriate intelligence. Dave
