    So when we leave AZ this year we are heading for TX for our first visit. Of course we will be stopping to see the river walk, Alamo and the missions and everything in San Antonio. I'm still going through the Google list of other "must see" stuff as we go across the state. I was wondering if...

    Fresh Water Pressure Regulator

    I'm going to break down and order a good water pressure regulator for the MH. The cheap one put in at the dealer is finally getting tired, or maybe it's just me getting tired of it. Anyway, I'm looking at the Watts X65BG which is rated to 160 psi and 9 gpm (whole house type). It?s going for...

    I am using a laptop running windows 7 and traveling using available wifi at different campgrounds. When I get to a CG I set up a Cisco router and directional antenna to get wifi at the site.  All of a sudden (since my last CG) I can't see my wireless SSID on my laptop.

    Lost Inverter Today

    After losing power in the MH today (when hooked to shore power) I have finally figured out the inverter is bad. It?s a Xantrax-Freedom Combi unit inverter-charger, model 15. I thought we tripped a breaker but after plenty of searching I had to pull out the schematics. The inverter/charger wont...

    Laptop stand used for GPS navigation

    I looked at GPS devices for the MH for the longest time and decided I did not like the small screens. (I don?t have a need for one in my other vehicles.)

    Question on Remote Desktop or similar?

    I have not tried this before but it would be handy to use a program such as Remote Desktop occasionally to help a friend in another state with their computer.
