Wife and I are thinking along those lines. Thing is, as amateur astronomers, we tend to also camp in places where standard cell service is fleeting at best and sometimes, like in central Texas,...

I had to re-read this thread and make sure I hadn't already replied to it. The reason this popped into my mind is that I'm not sure the Dometic fridge can run on 12V. As such, it needs either...

The only thing I'll say here that could be even remotely construed as a defense is that I'm a big DishNetwork Fan. Yes, you will lose signal in a downpour but not general rain or overcast. That...

I know two such RV'ers that lug around their own portable DirectWay (HughesNet) antenna and plunk it down right next to their Dish/Direct TV one as well. I haven't looked too far into the portable...
