RE: Fitness Watch??

I wear a Wyze Band $25. I've had others and this is the best one yet, not quite a smart watch but lots of features, even heart rate.

RE: Accident with tow vehicle right before big camping trip?

Your insurance will do whatever you contract provides for. Someone else's insurance will provide a rental but not a tow vehicle.

RE: Dental Assistance

Years ago I bought a plan from It wasn't insurance but the dentists that honor it give a large discount.

RE: Solar Cable Tangles

Do you need 8g? How about a 12g extension cord? Run high voltage from the panel and have the controller near the batteries.

RE: Bathroom Dry Pipe

Seems like a very complex solution to a simple issue.

RE: How do you pay your bills on the road on extended trips?

I pay most bills online with my own internet and a Chromebook. Fortunately my new 2019 truck has its own secure wifi hot spot. The only problem is the truck has to be running to use it.... What have you got? My 2016 Silverado does not require the engine to be running. I just turn the key one click to the accessory position.

RE: Dually towing TT

You can see my rig in the signature below. We do use the Equal-i-zer four point WDH with sway control. Is it needed? Maybe not but it doesn't hurt and it makes my wife more comfortable. It tows wonderful and have never had any issues in any and all conditions.

RE: Scenic View

You bought sight unseen?

RE: slide topper bracket

I'd have to check the manual for specifics but on mine you insert a drill bolt or other appropriate sized pin in a hole of the tube.

RE: hitch lock??

In 25+ years of owning travel trailers I have never used a lock. If I felt that I needed one, it would be a boot that covers the wheel lugs.

RE: BEWARE Keystone Hideout

The tank outlasted the warranty. That is the manufacturer's goal.

RE: Casting (Mirroring Android Tablet) to TV HDMI port

I should have mentioned that using Smartview on my Android device, I have a firestick. Works fine. We also travel with our firestick. With a hotspot it works fine in the RV as well. All that said, I Never cast anymore. Any apps I have for viewing media (sling, netflix, youtube, browsers)are also on the firestick so it's redundant and makes casting a moot point. True if you always have internet. I download onto my tablet when internet is available and then mirror to the television when it's not available. If you try to use campground wifi during the evening it is often impossible. Download during the day and mirror at night.

RE: Casting (Mirroring Android Tablet) to TV HDMI port

I struggled with this for a while and wasted money on some different devices such as a Chromecast which were failures. By accident I discovered Samsung Smart View which is only available to download for a limited time. It will soon be discontinued but will still work if you get it now. I then link my tablet with my Fire Stick. Go to settings, display and sounds, and click on "Enable Display Mirroring. Open Smart View on your tablet and make the connection. I download shows when internet is available and then play them on the television later.

RE: 50 AMP Tents

There are numerous 30 AMP sites available, I just thought that it was a shame that others are denied the precious few 50 AMP sites that probably were reserved on the first day allowed. I need to brush up on the “it’s all about me” thing. You're saying because someone spent more money on their camping equipment they deserve a 50a site more than a tenter? Yes, that is the "all about me" mindset.

RE: 50 AMP Tents

The tent people are paying the same as if they were in an RV, I assume?

RE: Why remove dinette booth and replace with table and chairs

Personal preference. We shopped for a trailer with table, chairs, and theater seating. We don't have a dinette at home and don't want one in the trailer.

RE: Grey water pump into portable waste tank

...both the pump and the valve cap had a male connection, which I could not connect the supplied water hose to. I only had a walmart close and I found a quick disconnect set that worked.... For future reference, a washing machine hose has two female ends. I always keep one in my gear.

RE: Refrigerator left running with doors open for 2 weeks !

Did that to myself once. Had water inside the refrigerator and on the floor of the trailer. Didn't do any damage. Clean up the mess and check, is it okay now?

RE: Low Voltage on One 50A Leg

Test your unit. Use an adapter to connect to a 30a service. Voltage on L1 and L2 should be identical, is it? If not, your unit might be adjustable.
