    Not a drinker but that sure is a good idea.  Yep, thanks a lot for sharing.

    Wow, a couple I know and read and a bunch I don’t.  I need to retire so I have more time.

    For Boondocking, Oh Yeah.  Full Tank and more.  I carry 18 gallons in the truck in that situation.  That way I can fill the tank if I have to and maybe drive into down if I need more.

    Nowadays it is hard to buy a bad truck if you shop wisely.  Dodge, Ford, and GM all put out great products.  My GMC seems to not have all the fancy stuff that the Fords do but I personally don’t need it.  Like Steve and Diane said you can never have too much truck.  My 2015 GMC Sierra with the DA package has a good towing capacity.  With my rig, I am running at 55% towing capacity even with my trailer maxed packed.  And I am not even close to that.  Yeah the mileage suffers a little but I have no problem pulling up any hill that I have encountered.  And for that I am Grateful.

    Good Luck and Shop Wisely

    That looks like you had so much fun.  And doesn’t sound like you had any problems.

    The R36  router is a nice little unit.  We can get the usual on the Blu Ray, with NetFlix, Amazon, etc and my iPad and Ginie’s phone hook right up to it.  Neat little unit for $150.

    That definitely looks great.  Bet you will be very happy with it.  My thing is that I don’t like hanging things up high; just takes too much effort.  A tray type bike rack is what I like.  I am lucky that my boy has a weld shop and is pretty good at fabbing.  Mostly he builds thumbs for excavators.  But when I wanted a receiver on the back of our pop up he was more then happy to oblige.  What we did though was to weld it to the frame and stayed away from the bumper completely.  And with the position of the spare tire the bottom bracket sits right next to it so it’s snugged up right next to the trailer.  Our new Arctic Fox is set up the same way.  And with a hitch tightener it doesn’t rattle around, keeping unnecessary stress off of the receiver.

    I have heard a few people rave about the RV Digest It also.  There is another blog that I follow who I trust says it works good and is not harmful.  But they also said that it doesn’t work well in extreme temperatures.

    I got my Alfa WiFi Camp Pro w/ R36 Repeater-Router.  So far it is working great in the driveway and very pleased with it so far.  $150 from Amazon.  A little more from TechnoRV and you have to pay for shipping but just like Chris and Cherie said if you are not techno savvy they might be your best bet because of their excellent support.  Comes with very good instructions and and all you need to get it set up and running.  The only thing that I found a slight bit confusing is when the instructions said for security WPA-PSK TKIP is recommended.  Because that particular selection is not on the list.  I discovered that you pick WPA-PSK off the list and on the next page you pick TKIP as your algorithm.   Sat up last night watching Hawaii 5-0 on the Blu Ray and puttering around.  So for so good.  Let you know more later.

    I think if I came back from a mtb ride all muddy, Ginie wouldn’t even let me into the trailer.  Glad Tilly has an outside shower.

    Sue that sounds like a great idea.  Ginie and I will have to remember that.

    Yeah that is for sure.  If it wasn’t for Ray I wouldn’t be half as well along as I am.  And it seems that he attracts like minded people, such as yourself.  So glad he started all this.  Ray, I wish you the utmost success.  I am Grateful.

    Love Chris and Sherie’s stuff.  Really like the way that they pick apart all the new unlimited plans; cutting through all the smoke.  Have you checked out RV Geeks?  They got some really good stuff too.

    They have a couple of real good kits at TechnoRV also.  Of course they are cheaper at Amazon.   :Big-Grin:

    Thank you so much for the come back.

    Do you know if these units need to be plugged into the house where the router is?  Or can I plug it into the trailer and place one of the antennas outside on a cable?
