Don't think there is for the JOF. However, may we concurrently hi-jack this posting for listing OTHER apps that might be useful?

For example, anyone used this one to find RV Dump Stations? "RV Dumps takes the database from the top ranked camping app called Camp & RV and filters all points that have a dump station as an amenity (not "hookups" which are at a site. Many parks no longer have stand alone stations.) Maybe you need one and a night stop or you are just passing on through. From Rest Areas to truck stops to private campgrounds (either stay the night or call to see if you can pay a separate fee). From State Parks to even some National Park and Forest campgrounds that have one.". $1.99.

Best gas price app: "GasBuddy can help you find cheap gas prices near you". Free.

There are some site options that can make you viewing easier. Here is a post from FPMIII from last month that illustrates how to do it:

>>>> Here's How to Get Your Life on JOF Back to Normal Again <<<<
So did mine on my iPhone. It used to look exactly as it did on my desktop. Then the other day, all I would get was a list of the section and forum names. No other information was displayed.

My research shows that there are now two display options- "Jayco Owners", which is the original full site display, and "Mobile" which displays an "abbreviated" view to reduce the amount of data being transferred. It seems that mobile devices are being automatically being changed to the "Mobile" display. Here's how to change it back.

To change it back to "Jayco Owners" (the original display), you have to click on "Full Site" in the black copyright line at the bottom of the web page.

To change it from "Jayco Owners" to "Mobile", the procedure is slightly different.

In the bottom left of the webpage, there is a small window that says "--Jayco Owners". Click on it and then select "Mobile"

Is everything Hunky-Dory now? If you are miffed by this change, you're not alone. I was too! However, I figured it out on my own and provided the necessary information to put your life on JOF back to normal again.

I really like RV Companion nice little app to organize your RV adventures. I also like using the leveler in the app not only does it display the level guide but will also tell you how many inches you need to raise the RV and from which side. The app itself is $4.99, there used to be a free version with Ads but on a small screen they do get annoying. the app on iTunes:https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/rv-c...329195954?mt=8

My go-to app is AllStays. Have it on all 4 of our ixxx devices. It was around $10 as I recall. Will show various types of CG's (county, state, Nat'l, private, KOA...) with a basic description of amenities, links to reviews and the web site. Shows roadside stops, welcome centers, fuel stops, WallyMarts (with and without overnight), Sam's, Costco's, LP vendors, RV shops. It also has filters to cut out the clutter if you are looking for something specific.

All you need to do is scroll down to the bottom of this (or any other JOF) webpage. On the left you'll see a pull down window. Open it and select "Mobile". That will display JOF in a mobile friendly format. Try it.

Don't like it? Scroll to the bottom again, but this time in the middle, to the right of the Copyright information, click on where is says "Full Site". Poof! You're back to the original format.

The beauty of this method is that it can also be used on any computer, if desired. I can reduce my data usage when my computer is connected to the Wi-Fi hotspot of my iPhone by setting JOF to "Mobile".

Wow, tried this and didn't like it. Had to figure-out how to search the forum to find this posting again so I could get back out ... the stuff I made bold wasn't too intuitive.
