A beautiful day today, a slight breeze, 70°, sunny blue sky, just can't beat it. Boondocking in New Mexico at its best.
I went to Walmart this morning and picked up a few things. I've been sneezing for the last couple of days because I was out of my Flonase allergy nose spray. This usually happens to me in the spring when things start blooming but fortunately over-the-counter Flonase works great, at least for me.
There's a lot of people here at Storrie Lake state park at the moment, but its not packed, their are still a few campsites left and there's plenty of boondocking areas left. And so far despite it being Cinco de Mayo it's been very quiet and peaceful.
My wireless rearview cameras were a big disappointment to me on the way here the other day. The camera that acts as a rearview mirror stayed on about 90% of the time, and the camera that looks down at the little Beta 250 only worked about 10% of the time. And yet both of them worked when I installed and adjusted them at Elephant Butte. I'm really not happy with this wireless system.
I've got one more thing I'm going to try before I go back to a wired system. I read on the Internet that it sometimes helps to move the antennas to a different location leaving the cameras where they are. So I'm going to get some antenna cable and see if moving the antennas closer to the front of the trailer will help.
This would be a simple fix except the antenna mounts for these cameras is really small compared to a regular TV type cable screw in Mount, so I'm probably going to have to order some cable with the tiny male and female threads on the end. Or maybe somebody makes an adapter that I could put on the cables I've already got laying around. Either way I don't feel like fooling with it until I get back to Denver where my shopping and ordering capabilities are easier and better.
So far I could kick myself for installing this wireless system. I only did it because it was supposed to save me some time and hassle not having to run a cable from the back of the trailer to the cab of the truck. But it looks like getting this wireless system to work is taking as much time and effort as I would've spent putting in a dependable wired camera. Oh well. it is what it is.
