  1. If you think about it Verizon is selling unused bandwidth on the towers (ie Network Management) since this plan has the lowest priority. I would think it would be much more likely for the service to downhill to the point that not worth the money then Verizon shutting down the services.
  2. We over 120 Gig used on new Prepay Verizon Jetpack and still can watch Netflix on two TVs with one them running 4K and still post this message and all of it over the Jetpack.
  3. We've got the prepaid plan mention in the first post and its plan number Verizon #28366. We are running two smart TVs on Netflix and have exceeded 57 gigs of downloading. There is network management according to the sales rep but we have had zero slow down but there isn't a hard cap at 22 gigs. We ran two computers and IPad on youtube and two smart TVs on Netflix and NO BUFFERING. So far it works and 70 bucks a month with 5 dollars off for prepay. We purchased the Verizon Jetpack MiFI7730L which supports 4G and 3G LTE with 15 connections and external antenna. It said on the website it was out of stock but the local store and them in stock. We were told that there are 22 cities they are rolling out 5G in the first quarter of 2019 and for 50 bucks month you can it installed in your home to replace your home internet service. Samsung supposes to have phones and hotspots out that will run 5g first quarter of 2019 and Apple probably won't announce anything till fall of 2019 or 2020.
  4. Here is more info on the New Unlimited plans and reviews. Plus NO Contract so not stuck if something better comes along

    RV Discount Camping Options

    I found the over 65 Club is saving just as much as a lot the discount deals. It's free and comes with a lifetime membership.
  6. Talk to our local guys and they said the would be glad to switch me over when my current contract was up.
  7. Looks like Verizon has changed their unlimited plan policy of capping the data. Here is the announcement: https://www.rvmobileinternet.com/verizon-overhauls-prepaid-introducing-unlimited-data-plans-for-jetpacks/#limitation

    Grand Tetons

    There is lot s of places to boondock for free in the area if you are interested in doing it. Boondock Grand Tetons Some more sites you might want to look at.

    Branson Missouri campgrounds

    Not towing you might want to look at Lake Side Rv Park. It's located by the lake and within walking distance of old town. The park is run by the City of Branson and has great WIFI, level spots and friendly staff with large pull thru and some back in. There are several nice place to eat and upscale shopping district within walking distance of the RV park. There Farmer market (forget what days) and Bass Pro shop also withing walkin distance. There is also a couple of bus stop in the park with trolley type bus. You can also withing walking distance of the train depot.

    Are You A Veteran?

    That is because the L11 had T-Canes made out ceramic for fuel jets. The hole in the middle for fuel and holes around the out side using balancing air to keep the flame away fro the T-Canes. If the air was unbalanced it would case the flame to touch the T-Canes and burn the end right off and dump fuel into the combustion chamber. I have seen them spit N1 and N2 turbine blades out the back of the engine and spin compressor so fast it would stretch the blades and they would touch compress half liners. L13 was the first one that used metal jets but still depended on balancing air to keep the flame away from the jet... Wow what a flash back.... 67n2F VN 68-69 70-71 --- Retired 20 years 16 days but who was counting. Retired as Quality Control Supervisor 67W4F

    FMCA April edition

    I got a couple of free copies of Good Sams Motorhome magazine and planning on subscribing to it. I like better it than FMCA especially now they going to have pull behinds.

    Wrangler Toad owners

    There are vehicles that state in the owners manual to run engine and shift gears ever so many miles/hours of towing. The automatic Wrangler owner manual doesn't make any mention of having start and shift gears in my owners manual. I have towed mine for about 4000 miles and sometimes several days at a time without start the engine.

    What size truck?

    The guy down from us has a Cedar Creek and asked him and he said he runs about 23% pin weight. We normally load about 1500 pounds over UVW so that would be 3335 pin weight and our 1 ton Diesel had the payload of 3722 with the hitch, my wife and me we had 3220 left over for pin weight that would put us over. At 16,000 GVWR that would 3680 well over our max payload. I would say you probably be over the trucks GVWR with SRW truck. I would have to recommend a DRW. That is the exact reason I sold my 5er and bought a motorhome. The last weighting I was 3300 under my max payload with my coach and we are carrying more in coach then we every carried in the 5er.

    FMCA Assist VS Goodsam Travel Assist

    I was told that FMCA Assist will no longer medivac you home but just to the near facility that can care for you and so will Medicare. It will provide a commercial airline ticket home for rehab if needed. But all the Lear Jet medivac stuff has been cut out recently.
  15. Before buying our Grand Cherokee we looked at the Cherokee and in 2017 in the manual under 4 down towing it did mention that the harness to power the EPS was mandatory for towing 4 down. So we bought the Grand Cherokee because the harness wasn't required - little did we know that less the 6 months after buying it we found we had the wobble.
