RE: Cell Boosting Kits Sold on Ebay

I have a WeBoost on my house and a cheap ebay unit on my shop. I can not really tell much difference other than Weboost will work with any carrier. Most of the cheap ones on ebay are band/frequency specific so you will need to know what band your carrier uses. That probably causes a lot of the returned packages

RE: Using a flag pole to hold cell antenna?

I use 2 sections of 1" pvc conduit cut just short enough to fit in the pass through area. I stick them together and lash it to the rear ladder. It may not be the best but works for me

RE: Have You Installed Your Own Slide Topper?

When my previous trailer was totaled by the insurance company, I pulled off the slide toppers and put them on my current trailer. I had to shorten the tube and awning a little since this is a smaller slide but it was not a big deal

RE: It’s the little things! Gravel Pad for my TT!!

Mice are not as happy about running across a gravel parking area as they are grass so it will help keep the mice out of the camper too

RE: Reliable Walkie Talkie?

I have 4 Cobra microtalk CXT395. I have upgraded the rechargeable batteries but mine last a LONG time. None of them have the range they advertise but work fine for my use.

RE: State Farm Insurance coverage for roof water damage

I can't speak for State Farm but Farm Bureau covered mine.

RE: Cell phone signal Booster ?

I have a WEBoost house unit on my home which does a great job but when I needed something for my shop, I decided to gamble on one of the boosters on ebay for 10% of a WEBoost price. I found it to work very well also but you do need to choose the correct band for your carrier

RE: B&W Companion

I have had mine since 2007 and I believe I have replaced the u bolts twice. I call them up and they send me a set for free

RE: Pinbox moves?

Where should the measurement be taken? I have an extended pinbox so the closer to the end of the pinbox, the more pronounced the flex

Giles Countyl, Virginia

Has anyone ever stayed at Gentry's Landing Campground on the New River? It has mostly permanent sites but does have some regular sites but there are not many reviews anywhere. It looks like it could be a great kayaking base camp.

RE: 5G cell phones, need to purchase?

What is this 4G of which you speak? At my home, sometimes is is still 1X and 3G on a good day. I would be really happy if I had consistent 4G. Not sure when 5G will ever make it to the rural areas

Parallel generator connection

I have 2 Champion 2000 watt generators and the Paralink kit. I usually just run one to charge the batteries and I have never run the pair long enough to run out of gas. My question is what happens when one runs out of gas? Does the paralink shut off the entire connection or will I just get the power of one generator? Thanks

RE: Weboost vs. Smooth Talker

I live in a rural area where I have to have a booster to have signal in my house or metal shop. I have the WeBoost in the house but was unwilling to put another $500 for one in my shop. I took my chances on a $50 outfit on EBAY for the shop. Very little difference in performance in the $500 setup vs. the $50 setup. Just make sure you get the frequency for your needs.

RE: RV carport/shelter

I got Carolina Carports to put up a 18' x 36' with 12' legs for my 31' fifth wheel. I have been very happy with it

RE: Should I convert my Gooseneck to a 5th wheel pin?

I have a fifth wheel camper and 2 gooseneck trailers. I have been thinking about changing the other 2 trailers to 5th wheel but I am just too concerned about my B&W 5th wheel hitch having enough movement for some of the places I take the trailers. If it wasn't for that, I would have already set them up

RE: Venting Indoors

Are you sure that it is the RV vent and not another building drain pipe which is open and allowing fumes to come back into the building?

RE: Generator question

My guess is the oil level sensor also. It might be just low enough to not be a problem on smooth road or sitting still but shut it down if you hit a bump
