Well you just brought something to my attention. Your technique holds true for my Android Galaxy too. To fix the issue in the past I've been cropping and saving the pics then they would have the correct orientation.
Thanks for the tip! The hard part now is being left handed.


As far as work done today, I tried to start waxing it until the freezing rain and snow started. We leave Tues and it's not looking good for having a new coat of wax.

Today I made more progress on one of my projects I like doing in all my campers. I like being able to turn my running lights on while parked at a campsite but I add a rely so if I leave them on and connect my truck I don't blow fuses. Got to wiring done and the relay in. Now to run the wires and install the switch for inside the camper. As an added bonus I wired the docking lights to the circuit as well.

Next times on the to do list include finishing that project, order and install the Tankedge iSeries holding tank monitoring system (much better than stock system) and on Thursday it is off to Goshen to get my Levelup system installed by Lippert on Friday.

All I did was ordered led light fixtures to replace the factory lights. Ordered a 4g LTE cell phone booster. Also a better antenna. A battery/and gauge. And some steel so I can move the tongue Jack as it interferes with my tail gate. Once the nice Cleveland weather gets nicer I will put the goodies in the trailer. Now I need to find a good 12volt TV. All these upgrades are for dry camping

Here is a real mystery about all cell phone manufacturers. Based on a little research I did the camera sensor in the phones is square. If not they could make it square no problem. Since people like to hold the phone vertical because the long part of the phone is more like a handle and can be done with one hand, why in the world don't the manufacturers have an option to make the photo rectangular left to right than rectangular vertical when holding the phone vertical? Maybe I should get a patent on this quick. Only in some cases does a vertical photo fit the subject. Most of the times a rectangular photo left to right, the 'old school' way is what works best.
You saw it here first fans.

Just a WAG but the issue shown in the Pic. should fall under "Owner Maintenance" the roof should have been checked "Several Times" as it is a 2014 year! Youroo!!

We will see. My dealer has been awesome. If not it's an easy enough fix.

Not sure exactly what model. Our rescue squads run them at work. And they haven't had a problem, so I had my deputy chief order me one and gave him my credit card. Paid a lot less than list
