  1. In our sticks and bricks we used 600 to 800GB per month and that is not a estimate but from usage chart provided by COX. In Dec I download some movies for trip down south and we got overare warning at 1.2TB
  2. I think is more about the plan offered. T-Mobile now has 100 GB plan that would only last me about 6 days with normal TV watching and internet services. Verizon might have better coverage but you probably end up with plan that won't support you activity so having the fastest network that you run data on isn't worth having.
  3. You will have to really research your sites. We are currently at Llano Grande Lake RV Resort and when we checked in they handed us a cable modem. There not many place that provide that service or even the cable system that would support a internet connect.
  4. I was told by Battle Born I need a BIRD (I think that what he called it) because Battle Born will take all the charge you can throw at them and they will burn up alternator in just few months. They also make Battle Born with a built in heater that suppose to out preform lead acid in cold weather.
  5. I thought I did good since it is a 2020 that only 9 months old. I guess I should of included my Grand Cherokee (with death wobble), Wrangler Sahara, and CRV that I have towed in the past.
  6. I'am believer don't fix a problem you might have only problems you do have. I have towed a new Jeep Wrangler Rubicon for about 11,000 and still not one ding. If I start seeing dings I will put on one of the protect a toad solutions.
  7. I have the SX3 for couple years now. Fits in my 2017 Wrangler 4 door and also in my 2020 Rubicon 4 door. Great cart but don't expect email support, they phone support I would rate 8 out of 10.
  8. I have what looks like a crack in the Avail tow bar that Blue Ox says they had heard of happening. Here is the post that made me take a closer look at my Avail. https://www.irv2.com/forums/f103/blue-ox-avail-failure-511636.html
  9. Before you decided I would do a couple of searches on Google. https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=blue+ox+tow+bar+failers https://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-b-1-d&q=Roadmaster+tow+bar+failers Some good reading. I just replace a 10,000 pound Blue Ox Avail with a RoadMaster Night Hawk.
  10. Airsteams are nose heavy with a high hitch weight. My Classic had a 1700 pound hitch weight at 9500 pounds so at 7700 you get 1200 to 1400 pounds and that will not leave much payload left over for people and stuff in the truck. The Class IV hitch on the most F150 are de-rated down to 1200 pounds max weight hitch weight. My Classic I towed with Ram 2500 put I also had to find one with Class V hitch.
  11. We had towing though our insurance company and we called for assistance when we had our 5er. I told the lady that we in our truck and fifth wheel and said ok she would send someone out. When she called back she ask what kind of truck we had since it has 5 wheels (truck + fifth Wheel = 5) I had to explain that is was a camper that is pulled behind my truck not 5 tires on the truck. Some of these companies don't deal with RV and don't have a clue what services you need or even if they can provide those service.
  12. I take it you don't believe if you break a bone they won't send a small jet out to pick you up and bring you home like their example on the website? That is what FMCA would like to you to believe.
  13. Guess I was wrong. On the link provided above uses a example of breaking a bone and FMCA Assist will fly both husband and wife home on small jet at no cost. I thought there was changes but guess not. https://www.fmca.com/pdfs/FMCAssist Success Stories.pdf
  14. Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the benefits change recently on the assist about providing free ride home.
  15. FMCA may fall to the wayside like other organizations of the past. The local square dance club 25 years had hard time finding a space large enough to hold is dance and had over 300 members. Now the club has about 25 members and hold the dances in double car garage and only about 10 couples show up. Maybe FMCA on the same path.
