  1. Check Out Our New Verizon MIFI Benefit!

    Whew! Persistence does pay off! I got a good rep first try I guess (Alex). He took a moment to search for the info and came back with the plan and did it again when asked about getting the Jetpack.
  2. Check Out Our New Verizon MIFI Benefit!

    Success! After going through the "Existing Customer - Register your line to receive discount " process the other day. I was this afternoon able to follow the new directions: Member calls Verizon customer service at 800 922-0204 The rep was able to change our plan to Plan ID 11454 and also able to add the Jetpack for a penny.
  3. Check Out Our New Verizon MIFI Benefit!

    Aware of their income stream. They analyzed the cost/benefit including costs of FMCA membership compared to other data plans. Obviously one joins FMCA for this and many other benefits. What a crock to sum it up as "Nice Try" Sorry! But they missed it this time.

    Will do - no email yet
  5. Check Out Our New Verizon MIFI Benefit!

    Technomadia hasn't picked it up yet I guess .... I'm pretty sure you can join FMCA today, sign up for 2 or more years, and then get the Verizon deal. I have a Verizon Jetpack that provides a WiFi as WAN link for our CradlePoint router and teams with an AT&T SIM card in its onboard LTE radio. I'm paying a lot more than $50 for Verizon - so to me this is a great deal and since we plan to stay with FMCA for at least 2 years more so it's a no-brainer.
  6. Check Out Our New Verizon MIFI Benefit!

    2 years into the future - like Chris said: expiration of membership no sooner than 11/8/2019 if signing up today. And folks have to sign up/renew on the main FMCA site before trying to get the Verizon deal. So new members have to sign up for 2 years minimum

    "General Error" on submitting billing info page - looks like that was the last step in the order process

    Existing Verizon customer also. I don't get an email, just a "General Error" on submitting billing info Edit 1 https://store.verizonwireless.com/Error?exception=BAD ORDER CALL1 Edit 2 Trying as an Existing customer Registering device for discount goes no where either.
  9. Did we mention Ice Cream? Huh? Huh? Coachella Valley and Quartzsite are huge snowbird havens, so most of what traffic there is will be RV's. We get thousands of folks staying local attend the Rally on Day Passes and Passports. And there are 5 or 6 casino's in range.

  11. Insurance For Stored Household Goods

    A rented storage unit. Not a residence. State Farm knows this and has it covered. Maybe things have changed recently, but it was not even a question when we got the insurance.

    We have State Farm Renter's Insurance.
  13. Steve, Typically, the brake light switch feeds the lamps through the turn signal switch. The t/s interrupts the brake lights so they can flash. If it is a ground operated system then the ground is most likely operating a relay that may have failed/stuck. On this year/model I dont know where the alleged relay might be but on likely it is in a black box full of fuses and relays. Safari used white wires for ground if that helps. Otherwise that blowing fuse looks like a dead short and would indicate there is/are a burned up wire or wires causing the open and the dead short to ground. In most cases, stop lamp circuits are not fused but have a circuit breaker. Keep looking! In addition to Brett's advice check: https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/SafariCoaches/info (You have to "join" the group to ask questions) Plus the FMCA Safari Internationl chapter has a website and magazine with lots of knowledgeable folks.
  14. Main Battery Charging

    I'm not sure what is meant by "main batteries", House batteries or Starting batteries. If it's Starting batts, based on what I read on this forum, I got an echo charger. Uses whatever is charging house batteries to "maintain" charge on starting batteries. Look for RV Echo Charger. While I heard there are cheaper units out there, mine has been working well going on 3 years. Xantrex 82-0123-01 Echo Charge for 12 and 24V Systems
  15. Pads For Jacks

    Yep! I echo the plywood ideas... Many years ago (7 or 8?) we were in a very unlevel site at The Riverside, went to The Home Depot in Bullhead City and had them cut a 4x8 3/4" exterior grade plywood sheet into 1 ft squares (for free). Screwed 4 pairs together 2 deep (i wish I had offset them, Brett) -- no glue needed as they don't crack anyway -- as the base set. I keep several individual squares to stack to keep the jack throw as short as I can when in a way off level site. Each base set has a drawer pull handle to push/pull with the awning stick. They work under the tires if necessary. They are still going strong.
