  Laboratory Billing Services
Posted by: charlesjarvis0303 - 3 hours ago - Forum: Chit-Chat and Off Topic - No Replies

Medical billing outsourcing is indeed a quick and easy fix for getting payment from the insurance company without the need to hire additional staff. Increasing claim revenue is one of the biggest advantages of outsourcing these services. Many practices, both large and small, can ill-afford long billing cycles simply because they are slow to output their claims or experience a high frequency of rejections due to coding errors. Laboratory Medical Billing outsourcing streamlines the billing cycle with highly-trained professionals and extensive claim follow-up services.

  EcoFlow Delta for sale in Minneapolis
Posted by: jdege - Yesterday, 12:11 PM - Forum: Found on Craigslist and other places - No Replies

I have an EcoFlow Delta Portable Power Station I bought a couple of months ago, with the idea of using it as the house bank in my boat, until I had time to build a proper system.

It was only after I bought it that I realized that it used Li-Ion and not LiFePO4. Li-ion isn't considered safe to use on a boat.

So I bought a Bluetti AC200MAX. It cost more, had a bit more capacity, weighed twice as much, charged half as fast, and had a more limited interface. The biggest difference I think is weight. At 31 lbs, the EcoFlow is pretty easy to lug around. At 65 lbs the Bluetti is not.

I really like the EcoFlow, the Bluetti not so much. But I'm keeping the Bluetti and selling the EcoFlow.

I put an ad up on Craigslist, because I was hoping to find a local buyer and not have to deal with shipping.

If you're in Minneapolis and need one, contact me.

  I don't live in a van and have no plans to.

Howdy, all.

I don't live in a van, and have no plans to.

What I'm trying to do is to move onto a sailboat, which is an entirely different thing.

Yep. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I'm in Minneapolis, and my boat is on Lake Pepin, and I'm currently suffering through Minnesota's seasonal hard water problem.

  Solar Generators (what's in a name?)
Posted by: PeterPiper - 01-22-2022, 06:46 AM - Forum: Solar/Electrical - Replies (11)

First, "Solar Generator" seems like a really messed up term for them.
ANY rechargeable battery pack can be charged with Solar.
I see of posts from newbies asking how they "Generate" solar power.

Anyway, do you own a "Solar Generator" ?
Do you find it particularly useful?

I have one.  A Jackery.   Not sure why I bought it......everyone else was in the RV dwelling community at the time and I was a noob?

Since then I've put together several of my own "Solar Generators that have all the capabilities (and more) of the commercially available units.
My 120Ah LiFePO4 pack for example has all the bells and whistles plus much more sophisticated power usage and input monitoring.

Now that I have one, I never use it.   I can't find a good purpose for it.   It's just been sitting gathering dust, but it looks pretty.
Anything I could potentially use it for I have something that'll do the job better.

How about you?
Do you find your Solar Generator indispensable?

  Outdoor shower, lessons learned
Posted by: Kyz - 01-19-2022, 08:35 AM - Forum: Health,Fitness and Hygiene - Replies (10)

Lessons Learned from my first outdoor shower with a shower tent, portable outdoor shower, and a 5-gallon bucket…  Big Grin

1.      Ensure that you use all 4 tent stakes when setting up the shower tent. Three may not be enough to secure the tent to the ground in 26 MPH wind gusts. If not, be prepared to hold the tent down during said gusts.

2.      Place table holding important items close enough to the tent to reach those items.

3.      The tent is not going to hold the included hook for the shower head, especially not in the zipper opening in the top of the tent or the included “clothesline.” (Unless your tent is better than mine and has a special space for it?)

4.      Face tent opening to the uphill side if you’re on even the slightest slope.

5.      Place shower head inside the bucket when not using it to conserve water (when it has no on/off feature).

6.      Don’t forget the outdoor mat you wanted to step onto outside of the shower tent.

7.      If you forget to outdoor mat and forget to face the tent opening to the uphill side, just know that stepping on your t-shirt will result in it getting it wet.
Disclaimer: This is meant to be funny; I'm not complaining.
I’m very happy with the outdoor shower! I can’t use my RV shower right now for multiple reasons. I swear I have used the RV shower less than 20 times since I’ve had this RV. I don’t like going other places to shower all the time and want to know I can be fairly self-sufficient. I'm going to try this method inside (without tent of course) in shower area for when it gets cold again.

  …well shit

Saw something bad today

Coolant leak.


I guess it is better on the ground than in the motor.. but still a pita!
I had plans this weekend- WAS going to go out and ‘camp’ and shoot a bunch of video and…

Guess I am crawling under the engine and looking for a leak instead.

(shakes head sadly)

Here’s hoping it is something simple.. not something shop-worthy.

Rainbow Paying it Forward
Posted by: Gypsyjoe - 01-12-2022, 03:15 AM - Forum: Chit-Chat and Off Topic - Replies (6)

I have been on this forum for quite some time and even though I don't post very much, I have always enjoyed it here and reading the posts. That said I have received help here and am of very little help to anyone here. Well I hope I don't step on any toes with this post, but over the years I have had much help not only here and from you people, but many other places by many other people in many ways.

Well I have started trying to pay it forward and in doing so I have created a new website https://www.365daily.gifts that I hope is doing just that...

If anyone feels I am stepping on toes, feel free to delete this post, if not I hope some of you will sign up and receive your daily gifts and hopefully it will help someone here. Whether this post gets deleted or not I will continue coming here for the pure pleasure I get here.
