  1. Ollieboba you should be ok with both carriers. For some reason at&t works best in the east, south east states and Verizon works best in the western states. There are many remote areas were nothing works. That’s why a good ole atlas map comes in handy when there is no cell service to help find your way. At least you’ll find a small town. And hopefully cell service will return.
  2. JD Good questions. I cant give you the answers except that we were in some of the higher elevations Breckinridge Colorado no WiFi loss we did have cell service problems with at&t some said Verizon is better out west. We did need cell service one time. We used the Onstar operator to make a call. And Onstar also found us the nearest camp site and made all the arrangements. At the time Onstar complete pkg was $65,00 a month with WiFi if I ever make another 6mo voyage I will use the Onstar system again. Short trips just the WiFi works well.
  3. I’m still on the fence on all this as I am with solar. Is this system going to wind up like satellite dish Tv? No one talks about this any more because of its poor performance due to weather and solar flares. I’m sure this is the thing of the future. Like a new model year vehicle everyone has to be the first to own one. I always wait a model year or two to get all the bugs worked out. As far as mobile WiFi for traveling my GM vehicle has OnStar for $20.00 a month unlimited data for WiFi while traveling across the country we never had a connection problem. I haven’t grasped yet all this new technology I still like my old school ways. Anyone seen my news paper? Couldn’t even find a news paper emoji to end with. 🙄
  4. Keep up the faith your in our thoughts. 👍🏼
  5. Every year for hurricane season we stock the trailer with can goods and non perishable items. Dollar General is where we stock up from. I found for some reason the can and non perishable items have the longest shelf date than you can find at the big box stores and cheaper prices.
  6. Yes. Only two small screws on the back . The Velcro covered and sealed the screw holes, i wanted to put the screws back in but they would not screw in flush with the back of the camera, I had heavy rain on one trip no problems no fogging camera lens.
  7. I installed this security camera several months ago and posted it on the forum. The camera is working very well there are no wires at all the camera recharges by built in solar or USB port. Clear picture and great night time visual. I posted it under entry door security camera. This system is used as a back up camera I’m not sure if the monitor will pick it up from the TV we use the monitor in side the Ollie I purchased the system at Walmart for around $100.00
  8. The Last time I was out West I forgot what state. We came to a check point and they were more concerned if i was carrying fire wood not weapons😎
  9. Patriot I’m coming to your place for thanksgiving. If you can carve that memory foam that nice with the electric knife. Great idea. I’d like to see how you carve turkey 🦃 Nice job.
  10. A little discouraging a lot of items being deleted from the builds Stripes , electrical outlets fabric and counter choices. I thought what most appealed to the customer was the flexibility to make a custom Oliver. I guess these changes need to be done to boost productivity and profit. Grant
  11. Unfortunately the master key for all door latches is the large crow bar that can gain access to any rv door. Unlike your door at home with a stronger frame. But still can be defeated. The Oliver has a aluminum frame around fiberglass. I like the keypad option. I have the standard lock handle doesn’t cost extra and does the same amount of security for the door.
  12. Ive been trying to go over the pros and cons for both toilets. This is my personal pros and cons on both. The only disadvantage is I never owned a composting toilet to make a true evaluation. The regular toilet I never had any problems with. Pros: Poop pee flush done. Tank is full hook up to the dump station attach hose pull the lever use the tank flusher then rinse out hose. Never had a mess yet. I guess doing it the same way for years makes it seem easy for me. These aren’t cons for me. But if they were they would be, finding a dump station which I never had a problem with and using extra water. Composting toilet, again I never owned one just my thoughts. Pros: environmentally friendly and no water usage. Cons: Pee tank empty often, you have to be a good shot. I don’t know how women manage sorry. Carry vinegar with you to help with pee smell. Main dump add composting material then turn the crank frank after each dump. And as mentioned above diarrhea or vomit cleaning the mess on the bowl because of no water to rinse doesn’t seem to be a pro or con just nasty. After all that you still have to dump the composting material and clean the holding compartment. The last Con what happens if the blower quits and a replacement isn’t available for several days. Buy a lot of fabreez spray? Even though I trashed the compositing toilet I would still own one for a remote cabin where a septic system was not available. Just not for an Rv.
  13. Great job you do nice work.
  14. My wife and I use a foam covered wedge found at camping world. We use it at the head of the bed so we’re not laying flat. Then use it at the foot of the bed, it serves as a good back rest while sitting up in bed watching tv or reading.
  15. That’s slim Potato head he has a decent YouTube channel. He lives in Canada travels everywhere May or may not get some good pointers from his channel.
