  1. Winnebago motorhomes for handicapped travelers.
  2. I found this Richard:https://www.bleepingcomputer.com/news/security/garmin-outage-caused-by-confirmed-wastedlocker-ransomware-attack/ and this: https://www.forbes.com/sites/barrycollins/2020/07/25/will-garmin-pay-10m-ransom-to-end-two-day-outage/?sh=31aa7969316A Kinda sounds like RM is now in the same position.
  3. I wrap a small black bungee cord around each lock lever, which holds them down. This way it's easy to unhook by myself.
  4. Todays email sounds like RM has a complete systems failure, or perhaps a hacker locked their computer network and demands money for an unlock key. Dear Valued Customer, Rand McNally hopes this message finds you and your family in good health as we approach the holiday. In an effort to be transparent regarding the recent disruption to our network, we are making you aware of a cyber incident that is affecting our hosted and network systems. We assure you that we are focusing our resources on restoring the functionality of our network to resume delivery of products and services to you. We appreciate your patience and continued partnership in this regard. Please note: The navigation functionality of our GPS devices is not impacted — those devices continue to work as do other consumer electronics. However, we have established a temporary Customer Support number for immediate needs: 859-353-9057. Please also note that are experiencing significant shipping delays for orders made through our online store. We apologize for the inconvenience. During the response and recovery process, we are mindful of the ever-increasing level of sophistication of these incidents. We engaged experienced professional consultants to guide our efforts, and we are taking deliberate care to evaluate any risks. We have taken significant steps forward toward restoration and continue to investigate for more insight into the incident and how to prevent future disruption. While we are unable to provide a timeline at this moment, we appreciate the trust and confidence you have in Rand McNally to move as quickly as possible to resume to normal operations. We apologize for any temporary impact this may have on you. Thank you, Rand McNally
  5. I received this email Tuesday: "Dear Valued Customer, As you may be aware, Rand McNally recently discovered a disruption to certain portions of our computer and phone network. We commenced an immediate investigation that included taking certain systems offline and are working with specialists to determine the nature and scope of the event. We are working diligently to restore the functionality of our systems to minimize downtime, particularly for regulated and essential industry sectors. We apologize for any delay or inconvenience this has caused. The investigation is ongoing, but to date we have no indication that Rand McNally customer data is affected. We will continue to update you when we have meaningful updates on the restoration of services. We appreciate your patience and understanding and assure you we are working around the clock to restore our services. In the meantime, if you have a critical issue, we’ve established a temporary Customer Support phone number: 224-601-4847 Thank you, Rand McNally" This one sounds like their entire system is messed up.
  6. I saw a bright side to that, I wouldn't have to get out of bed to go pee.
  7. We have gotten used to the comforts of RV camping this would be a change: https://www.traveltipsor.com/extreme-camping-germany-waldseilgarten-camp/
  8. Boils down to getting old sucks. Years ago someone asked Dad about the golden years; he said" feels more like lead to me".
  9. Last year my battery charge readout behaved irregularly, Went tracking down the cause. When I checked battery cell liquid levels all were just below top of plates, filled cells with distilled water and my charger behaved normally. After the display read "float" I took hydrometer readings of each cell, one battery had a really low reading. New batteries cured all problems. Old batteries were 5 years old.
  10. Herman listed the two largest salvage yards in the U.S.A. This is a list by state of smaller places. The list is not current, some are out-of-business.
  11. Herman we have a permanent handicap hang tag in our MH due to DW's condition.We'll likely buy a handicap plate when the DMV issues new plates instead of an annual sticker.Handicap RV sites are a bit wider, leveler, with more concrete skirting for wheelchairs and walker use between RV and picnic tables. I think the MH's built for wheelchair/walker access inside are neat.
  12. Winnebago built 484 Ultimate MH's between 1999 -2004.5, two models were built, the Ultimate Freedom and Ultimate Advantage. I was very surprised at the 5,000# load capacity.
  13. I suspect I'll find out in the near future how much of my information was available to the hacker(s). As long as my apartment has wheels I can escape!
  14. I received this email today, it sounds like their computer system has been hacked.
