Security Cameras

Just finished installing 24/7 mobile cradlepoint MBR 1400 4G LTE Broadband Router. This setup gives me access to the Internet across the country with a static I P address. It will also give me access from the Internet to view my on board cameras installed inside the coach remotely.
Cameras are all setup to detect motion and to send me an e-mail with 6 pictures.

The IP Static Address is from Verizon

so01.vezwstic (South)


If anyone wants to see my setup we will be camping with the ECOA at the Tampa RV Super Show from January 13th to 18th

Fascinating. Would you have links to the various components?

New Dash Panel

I got around to removing the factory dash panel on our 2014 Phaeton because the LCBU guage was not visible while in the seated position. Instead of Black plastic I used oak veneer 1/4 and relocated the guages so they can be seen.
Cost less than $30

A 30 amp automatic transfer switch to replace the half jackmule set up the dealership installed to change over from a really small Onan to shore power. Why would anyone want to go outside to swap over the power cable to a plug under the dinette? I'm a newbie who bought it used and even I saw that as a bit ...ugh...ignorant!

I like it. Looks nice,
Father-in-law made me a new shelf for on the top of the dog house, maybe I can sweet talk him into doing something like this to my dash and match up to the shelf.
Great Idea,
Tim

Now all I have to do is install it.
Should be a fairly easy install if your existing stereo is a double din style. I have done several in my coaches. If your existing stereo is factory, you'll have to cut the wires on the plug-in harness. Make sure you don't cut off the wire labels or matching the wires on the new harness becomes way more involved.

A tip from someone who has done dozens of installs. if someone has cut off the labels or they have fallen off with age. Take a flashlight battery. AAA, AA, or D size. Put one negative speaker lead to one end of the battery and the other speaker lead to the other end of the battery. Keep touching and releasing the wire to the battery. It will make a loud static noise on the speaker.

Not ignorant, Old style.That is the way the did it in the old days, before transfer switches. The way to use it was to always plug in the cord to the generator every time you unplugged from the power pole. That way you were always ready to start the generator and have power. The bad part was, If you had a storm in the middle of the night and lost power, you had to go out in the rain and plug in the generator. (In the 14 years I had the two motorhomes with manual plugins. I never had to go out and change over the power.) The good news was, they never gave any trouble. I actually had a couple of customers, in fifteen years, that paid me to go back to the plug in style. The old style was bullet proof.

Thanks Les. The biggest difficulty that I face is changing from a single din to a double din opening. It looks like I have plenty of room, but I haven't pulled the dash panel to see what lurks behind. Should know in an hour or 2.

Do you really consider a 2005 model FR THAT old? Transfer switches were made in 2005 weren't they? The undersized Onan was a dealer installation. The $64 transfer switch was around then too right? The "old style might have been bullet proof, but for me to have to get in my wheelchair and go out to change it over makes it a pain. I'm glad I got the automatic transfer switch.
