  1. Florida is a big place.
  2. I'm also interested in this, as I need to replace my chassis batteries. I'm worried what might go wrong when I take them out, drive a couple of hours to purchase new batteries, spend a couple more hours shopping, and then a couple more hours back to the coach before installing the new batteries.
  3. We had reservations there that were made months ago. I was disappointed when we got an email saying our reservations were cancelled. The reason given was just "campground renovations". Good to know exactly what is going on.
  4. I thought my water pump was about to go out a few years ago. I bought a spare so I'd have it on hand when it did go bad. I'm still carrying that spare around.
  5. Maybe... I have a dental appointment on Wednesday to get a tooth pulled, and it depends on how that turns out if I am doing well enough to drive down to Tampa.
  6. No, the pool has been permanently closed.
  7. We are in Sumter Oaks now. In fact, we have spent winters here for the past 5 years, and really like the park. It has many spots that are shaded by large oak trees (hence the name). Sites are generally spacious. There are many scheduled activities during the Nov - April season. We just got back from the weekly dinner in the activity center. Great home cooked food for $8/person. Other activities include poker nights, pokeno nights, ice cream socials, excersize and dance classes, holiday parties, music jams, craft classes, and various group outings to nearby attractions. Last year, the electrical wiring in the 30 amp half of the park was upgraded to 50 amp. Also, wifi was installed a couple of years ago, and is operated by Tengo Internet, a paid service. There is a free low bandwidth version available for park guests.
  8. I was shocked when I first heard Walter Williams ask "Who owns your body?". At the time, he was talking about whether you should be able to sell your kidneys. But the same concept holds true today concerning what is forced into your body. Does anyone or any government hold ownership of you to be able to do that?
  9. The gutter seems to have all the most interesting responses.
  10. After several swelled batteries on hotspots, I now use a timer plugged into the 120v outlet. I've got it set for 2 to 4 hours a couple of times each day. Seems to be working so far.
  11. Thanks Herman! I still have the old FMCA Verizon account with 25 gigs of high speed. I think I'll cancel that and move to the new FMCA T-Mobile plan.
  12. I see on the FMCA website FAQ for the Tech Connect plan, it does not include 5G. Does that mean that with a 5G hotspot, you can only get 4G?
  13. On my Discovery, the receiver is under the dash, in the center, on the floor.
