Well, I got back from last weekend's trip and everything checked out fine. I actually took TOO much gear. It was a little ridiculous. The cell service thing doesn't matter. I ran the generator out...

I'm with SBJ on this one. I like the dash mounted version. One problem on the center mounted is that you get into a bad habit of pulling that sucker up WAY too tight without thinking about it, and...
