RE: Rant - getting someone to work on a Class C motorhome

Yes that’s really the point. My mechanic stepson taught me all about the flat rate book. I don’t think dealers even do time and materials anymore. Given the “maybes” with an RV I can see why a dealer wouldn’t want to touch one. Dave

RE: Rant - getting someone to work on a Class C motorhome

Part of the problem for dealers is the add on items blocking standard chassis parts. For example my Sprinter has a fresh water tank, two batteries and a generator hung underneath. The exhaust is routed around some of these. During a recent Sprinter recall involving the exhaust system there were reports of people having to get “someone else” to remove a water tank then Mercedes would fix the recall. Hard to blame the dealer for that call. Dave

RE: Rant - getting someone to work on a Class C motorhome

I always used independent shops for my Class A, my DP, and now my Sprinter. I can’t for the life of me figure out why anyone would go to a dealer for non-warranty work. You’ll find that many independent shops have people who are simply great mechanics who can fix most anything on an RV. Dave

RE: Pepwave as a Cell repeater with no data plan

Welcome to the forum. I really wish I understood what you are trying to accomplish but I think, given what interesting information you have provided , I would just keep the door open. Unless it is raining of course, and then I would close it and read a Kindle (in airplane mode obviously). Dave

Well I don’t use Facebook (recently retired computer security software guy) but I’m busy packing our B to head south for two months. Dave

RE: Custer State Park expansion

Isn’t this a duplicate post if this thread that has been running for weeks? Dave

RE: This is too easy!

I would appreciate it if someone had this corrected for when I arrive in Florida in 10 days. After yesterday I am in dire need of 6 weeks of warm sunshine. :) Dave

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: 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

RE: MODEM / ROUTER Question

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

RE: MODEM / ROUTER Question

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
