We tried the walkie talkies but found the bluetooth phone in DH truck and me on my cell on speaker phone we get the job done. We have done this 3 times now and it just worked out better, like it was stated, you need to hold the button in to talk. Don't ask me how I know.

LOL! We (as well as several other campers who were lazying around on a warm summer's day) were entertained when a couple pulled into a site near us. Apparently the lady was law enforcement and used to talking on a radio. The DH appeared to be learning. He had the volume cranked up, and you could hear DW's voice consistently (but amazingly patient) reminding DH to click first then talk!
The funny thing was he eventually remembered to click first, but then would forget to release the button when he was done talking ! They worked well as a team otherwise

I almost hit the basketball hoop on the side of my driveway the FIRST day I took my new Class C home. I drove in watching trees and eves on the house, said I made it home safe and sound with no problems. When I got out, I looked to the side and there was the hoop 2" from the slide awning! Just missed it. Now she sits on her RV pad behind the house. We had 14 trees removed when we built the pad. I am not taking any chances. I did hit my antenna on electric wires a year later and had to have it replaced. oops
