    Inlaws has some cheapass weboost and you need to be standing within arms reach of it for it to help. Do not reccomend.

    funny because weboost is wilson, which is highly regarded by industry users, just well beyond my budget/need.

    Then donít waste your money. But a Wilson booster is not a waste of money. Hundreds of thousands of hours of use by the folks in O&G says otherwise. The cheap ones that claim to work well, donít. So if you need to be connected that bad, open your wallet.
    as i said, multiple times, i am not buying a wilson, hence why i asked if people had experience with other units, not because i wanted to be told to buy a wilson.

    My brother has a uniden booster unit in his truck. He seems to like it?

    I have a booster in my truck (smoothtalker) and I just use that if I need signal for calls or downloading netflix movies.. Works really well but also $$$.

    There are lots of positive reviews on the weboost on youtube with RV's. But I think if you are just using in occasionally for camping, I would just put it in the truck where you can use it whenever you are driving. The phone just has to be in the truck to get the boosted signal (on certain models).

    They must make a lower priced model, because this thing was like $100 used.

    Jobs are the worst.

    Anyone have issues with thier kitchen drawers opening when they travel? I have two that always seem to be a problem, and one of them broke through the tab thingy on the drawer slide Tha6s supposed to stop it, and it was laying on the floor. Now that drawer slide is really unsmooth, I think it's bent. Is there a proper latch or something to keep drawers closed?

    Would child locks work?

    Safety 1st sells a magnet system for child locks that is pretty secure and invisible to the outside, smaller than this stuff inside too

    Sure, anyone can go to Richelieu's location on 52nd Street SE and make a free account. Just be forewarned that there are many evil things on display there.

    You might also be able to buy those at Home Depot/Rona/Lowes as they do stock limited Richelieu hardware.

    Do you guys have any suggestions where to get some cheap, reusable utensils and plates/bowls for camping? Looking for a set of about 20. We've been washing and reusing our plastic utensils so we figure may as well just get something more lasting and paper plates have been wasteful.

    Walmart or superstore. Thier summer patio stuff is what you want. Buy two more than the number of people you camp with.

    Thanks.

    It just occurred to me these might be a good solution for the utensils.

    We source all of our camping gear from garage sales. We have amassed a ton of stuff over the years.

    Garage sales are good too. Just takes more patience. You can get some.uncredibme deals on stoves, lanterns, chairs etc.

    Yeah, I was thinking garage sales too. Too bad the season for it is over and I didn't think to pick any up this year. Next year!

    If any of you want, I still have a Wilson 801212F from my camping & towing days. Needs a new external antenna (broke tip off).

    https://www.wilsonamplifiers.com/mob...s-kit-801212f/

    I had really good luck with it, it's been packed in its box for a couple years now unused.
