    WOW!!!!!  You sir are a man of amazing talents. I have seen videos and pictures of your solar work which in itself is impressive, but to take on the rebuild of the back end of the fifth wheel is truly amazing. I now know why my skills are so limited, you took them all LOLOLOLOL. :good:

    Now that I like. I will hold off on the expensive sat finder and try out that app with a cheap one.

    You gotta love this forum,  thanks,

    Thanks, I saw on one of Ray’s videos he was using a regular RV water pump for ( can’t remember what) and I thought, what a clever idea, a spare pump in case the one in the trailer fails while boon docking. When I see these simple ideas that I would not have otherwise thought of brings a smile to my face. :yes:

    I was just looking at a drone shot of their site at Imperial dam and there is standing water close by. There is lots of room so when I head down next winter I won’t be picking a spot close to any standing water.  :yahoo:

    I was on the login page when I saw the Not Secure but logged in anyway since I wasn’t too worried. The Not Secure stays after logging in. Now here is where it gets interesting, when I use my laptop running windows 10 everything is fine, when I use my tablet, an old sony, everything is fine. It appears it is just this 8 year old desktop on windows 7 that doesn’t work well with chromes latest update.

    I am not going to bother to try and solve a problem when there isn’t one, so all is good :good:

    Well you have camped at a lot of places in the southwest so I am beginning to think they must have been unlucky enough to find one of the few spots where mosquitoes are a problem.  :good:

    Thanks for the update. I remember  a friend of mine was going to buy an ELECTRIC forklift to use in a Florida warehouse and the supplier told him there would be no warranty because of the humidity problems. He bought a Propane model instead. :bye:

    Thanks Ray and Sue, I will be following along and see how it goes for you this winter. This site and others makes it so much easier to head off potential problems, we just have to do our homework (I used to hate homework in school)

    April 27 and I will be retired, heading south Nov 15, we are sooo looking forward to it :bye:

    Let me add some more confusion. I had planned on using our samsung phone presently on the telus network and unlocking it for the verizon network while in the southwest. I have learned that verizon uses a system called CDMA while most other networks have changed to GMA. so my phone will not work. It is like comparing English to French, they just can not talk to each other. I am hoping things will be more STANDARD when I head South next Nov. If I want Verizon (I do) I might have to buy a phone from Verizon on the prepaid planhttps://www.whistleout.com/CellPhones/Guides/BYO-phones-how-to-take-your-phone-to-another-carrier

    Wow, it was interesting until I saw the price. I am looking forward to a review later as it would have to make a huge difference to justify the cost. Thankfully they sent you one to try out. The company must be confident in their product because everybody knows your reviews are truthful, good, or not so good.

    It is too bad they did not put a place to attach terminal lugs. I will be using #2 wire and even that size with the fine strands I find it difficult to insert without possibly breaking off a few strands and then when I tighten the set screw I might break off a couple more. I would not mind this If there was no hope of them getting inside and floating around the circuit board. I guess I worry too much and want to do things right the first time. I will have to remember that things can not always be perfect but still acceptable.
    I have been reading everything I can from you, Handyman Bob, and anyone else who has experience in getting set up for boon docking. I have read soooo much I know I have forgotten a lot I read earlier. I have an excuse though, being 65 I do find myself a little forgetful. I will be putting in my converter,inverter, cut off switch, tri-metric 2030 RV this spring and summer and follow up with solar next summer. Hopefully everything will be working as it should by the end of the summer of 2017 and I will retire Nov/Dec 2017 and head south to New Mexico and Arizona for the winters.
    I really appreciate all the articles, videos, etc. which I have looked at countless times as it takes a little while for things to sink into my gray matter.
    Do you know what I really like about your videos etc., you admit your mistakes and share them with everyone. When I got my pilot’s licence many years ago I read something on one of the safety bulletins we got every month “LEARN FROM THE MISTAKES OF OTHERS AS YOU WILL NOT LIVE LONG ENOUGH TO MAKE THEM ALL YOURSELF” :good:

    Thanks for sharing,
    Wayne
