Pandora runs off the phone network...no extra charge...no wifi needed!

Towed my 19' at +70 mph for 2 hrs through rush hour traffic on I15 in Salt Lake City and was still the guy holding up traffic.

Don't know how your system works, but anything I do other than make a phone call or text message requires data and the data is limited by my plan. I pay extra for data on my phone.
I tried watching a Stanley Cup final an ran out of data before the second period ended.
I have to keep my Sirius XM radio because most of the places I camp don't have WiFi and some don't even have cell service. As far as I know, you can cancel service and then renew it for the camping season ( which I never get around to doing ).

Ain't that the truth! I grew up near Salt Lake and my Dad liked to take me there to "learn how to drive". Once I figured out that the right lane was for 70 MPH, the middle was for 75, and the left lane was for going too fast for your own good, I was fine. When I moved down south it took me a long time to get used to slow drivers in the "fast" lane.

Sorry about that! Yes I believe the data feature is used for Pandora. I have unlimited data on Verizon and forgot....

Precautionary…...
When I opened my refer vent to verify my baffles I noticed how dirty it was inside and could tell that rain was getting into the cavity. No harm as it is sealed and there is a drain, but the vent cover is on the high side of the bottom half and more prone to rain running down the side and behind the vent. Thus the gutter. Note, you have to install it upside down because if you install it right side up you may not be able to remove the vent cover. The vent cover lifts up and out. Pictures tomorrow. Then the escape window to try to keep the water out of the track, I previously drilled some drain holes also, again pictures tomorrow. Finally the baggage hatch as it may be subject to water, the gutter should help out down there. Still one more piece to put up on roof and extend the awning gutter back and forward to keep water off the side windows.

Yes, I was warned by Verizon that streaming radio really eats into your data and they slow down the system.

Best check what Verizon means by "unlimited data". They may have a different definition than you do. I know that people have run up against this with other companies.
