  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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
  4. Correct me if I'm wrong but didn't the benefits change recently on the assist about providing free ride home.
  5. 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.

    Testing your TPMS?

    We sure love our new Tire Minder that replace the TST we had.
  7. If you have Medicare Part A they will move you to a hospital that care for you. Our local hospital doesn’t have the staff to for care of heart patients. They stabilize and move them to facility about 60 miles away for longer term care at no cost under Part A of Medicare. To use it you have to coordinate with Assist folks and I don’t want them to take the time, just go thru regular channels they use everyday. I keep hearing about our members want events. If that was true they would get more 2 or 3 percent attending. With 79,000 members and only 2,000 showing up for rally like Tucson is less than 3 percent of the membership. I think you find that attendees attend several rallies during the year and make up the majority of the attendees. The local FMCA chapters seem to do much better job of attracting attendees. FMCA issued couple thousand certificates to people that was at Tucson and think if thousand show up next year at Perry rally they won’t have the funds to put a decent rally. Just kinda prolonging the pain. The only benefit we used in 4 years is had tire change on our toad so I going to have to evaluate my membership next year.
  8. What is FMCA do when 1,000 to 1,500 people show up at Perry with Certificate in hand? There won't be the cash flow to put on the rally or they will have to limit the number of people that can use certificates.
  9. Here is a 40 dollar unlimited plan that can be as cheap as 20 bucks and is unlimited. http://www.irv2.com/forums/f53/40-month-unlimited-internet-interested-442091.html
  10. We had a free coach net from the manufacture and picked up a nail in our truck not towing and coach net said they would NOT cover if since we are NOT attached to the RV. We also had FMCA and they said no problem and dispatched a tow truck to change the tire. We were in truck stop when we call and FMCA said it would be 40 minutes to hour before they could get some there. We order lunch and just sat down to eat when the tow truck pulled in. So my only complaint is they got there to fast. GRIN
  11. I was going though brakes on the toad and found that every time the engine brake came on the motor home tail lights would come on the it would apply brakes in the toad. Going down even a small hill on the highway the toad brakes would apply when the engine brake kicked in.
  12. WE have the Blue Ox Patriot 3 Braking System and it has been in 4 different toads and currently have two toads we can tow 4 down depend on what we going to do on the trip. I like it because I can set it not to apply the brakes on the toad when the engine brake comes on or light braking. No sense having the. toad brakes trying to slow slow down the coach.
  13. Even if the OP has left sometimes good to add in information in case someone searches and finds the thread. Half the time I get my answers searching.
  14. What I would do is weight the coach ready to camp with everyone in it. Then I would take that number and subtract it from the Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR) to determind the max weight. A friend found that he could only tow about 3500 pounds without exceeding GCWR.
  15. I use mine my TOGO in the house and run my entire house from it. I put 300 gigs on it last month and even doing so 4K HD from Apple TV Plus service. I just put a 12-volt accessory on Togo and run into 110 sockets using the device below. Plus 360 a year (30 bucks a month).
  16. Wingard Togo - I have over 100 gigs last month and not slow down for 360 a year (30 dollars a month https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=89QcTDdeZPI
  17. Check out TOGO from ATT Here is a link https://www.rvmobileinternet.com/att-360-yr-rv-unlimited-data-plan-now-available-with-togo-roadlink-c2/
  18. I meet a guy at campgrounds that had towing policy from his insurance company. He was broke down on the side of the road and after 3 hours dealing with the CS Rep, they told him that they didn't have a contract in that area with a wrecker service large enough to tow his motorhome. He was told to find someone and have them tow the motorhome and then submit the recipe for reimbursement. He also found out that there was 120.00 limit on towing and as out over 600.00 out a pocket.
  19. The FMCA plan will throttle at 22 GB then it slows down to 600KBS which is only good for things like EMail plus you are stuck in the contract even if you not satisfied with the service. The Pre Paid NON-FMCA plan doesn't have that 22GB throttle and probably one of the best features is that the contract is month to month. I used over 150 GB in 30 day period and still run two Netflix session at the same time without any problems. The PrePay plan is 70.00 a month with a 5.00 discount for being paid my CC. Also if not going to use it you can suspend the account and cost 10.00 to start it back up so not stuck paying for it when you not using it.
  20. I have argued that many times when you have a strong signal the WeBoost will decrease your throughput. When the WeBoost comes in handy is a weak and unreliable signal. MIMO uses multi-channels to and the WeBoost uses a single channel. I agree with the statement above.
  21. 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.
  22. 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.
  23. 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.
  24. Here is more info on the New Unlimited plans and reviews. Plus NO Contract so not stuck if something better comes along
