RE: I want to install a 12V digital volt meter

I installed a 12v meter under our dinnet and tied it into the power plug. I didn't have a need for a switch as I rarely dry camp. http://i.imgur.com/bI15XZ7l.jpg

RE: need a little help in finding and choosing an rv park

If you have a smart phone, there's an App called RV Parky. I have found it to be quite vauable.

RE: towing a car

We have towed a 94 Accord with a manual tranny for about 3 years now. Really easy. We just bought a 2014 CR-V and have to get it rigged for towing.

RE: looking for a vehicle to tow.

We have towed a 94 Honda Accord with a manual trnsmission for about 3 years. In October we bought a 2014 CR-V to replace it, mainly due to the Accord's age. I don't have the CR-V rigged to tow yet, but I hope to soon. Camping season in California has started, well it never stopped, really.

RE: It's Back! Tank Flushing Tests in the Clear RV Black Tank

Wow, This is what we as RV enthusiasts need, testing of the myriad of products that are shoved in front of us. What a wonderful thing!

I have the Rand 7720, (CW, Good Sam) and it allows you to put in the length of your rig and towed car. There are no guarantees that it won't send you down the wrong road though. Having said that I am mostly happy with my unit. When planning a route, it will give you two choices to your destination, (you can choose the one you prefer) which I find helpful.

RE: Invisi Brake & break away switch - do you use it ??

We also have the Invisabrake installed on our Honda and yes we do use the brake-away switch. What would happen if the car came loose? Missile comes to mind.

RE: For those with "awning lock" how do you like it?

Anybody that has this type? http://awninglock.com/index.shtml How do you like it? Easy to install? Anybody have installed on manual "Carefeee of Colorado"? I've been about getting one, Camping World doesn't carry them I was told Saturday by their parts person. On my old rv I bent a rod that fit into roller tube hole and was strapped to side of the awning leg. Looked sort of weird and had to break out ladder in place peg in hole. But did the trick. Thinking about "going first class" this time. If you have one PLEASE what do you think about it??? (I did a search and don't see very many people that have one by the search results, but these were mentioned as a fix in a thread. Not actually how people liked them after buying and installing and using them.) Thanks I bought this one a couple of years ago and installed it on the awning. The toughest thing is to drill the hole in the right place. On mine, it sometimes doesn't line up when I roll the awning up and I have to pull it out and try again. When it works, (lies up) it works well and I am happy to have it installed. I feel better about having it on there. I have never seen the option of using the awning rod though. That looks like a good idea too, (as long as it stays in place).

RE: Adding An Amplified Speaker Sound Bar System

I added a 30" Phillips sound bar system to my LED TV installation. It's 120V and has a wired Sub woofer that I placed in the cabinet behind the TV. A lot of the sound bars are expensive and wider than what I needed or wanted. This one also has a line in or playing music from my iPhone and a hand-held remote. You can find it as Best Buy and other places.

RE: Where did you get your vehicle set for towing?

Don't have a Jeep, but we had our Honda Accord baseplate installed at our local Hitch & Tow shop. They did a great job. I had the Blue Ox tow bar and they did the rest, including the lights and the installation of the Invisabrake system.

RE: Holding tank chemicals

FYI you don't need bacteria in your tank. They are holding tanks. The waste should not be in them long enough to breakdown. You may not need bacteria in the tank, but there is not much you can do about it. It will be there from your own gut. And if anaerobic bacteria proliferate (almost guaranteed within hours) bad odors will be in the tank. My practice: 1. To maintain my blackwater holding tank I use two tablespoons of Happy Camper Odorless Holding Tank Treatment (53 cents) dissolved into two gallons of water dumped into an emptied blackwater tank. 2. Happy Camper is biodegradable, works in all temperatures, eliminates odor, dissolves toilet paper, liquifies waste, and keeps sensors working properly. I use any two-ply toilet paper that is safe for septic tanks. 3. Proliferation of anaerobic bacteria causes odor. Happy Camper promotes aerobic bacteria which crowds out or kills anaerobic bacteria and accelerates decomposition. 4. With Happy Camper there is no need to use excessive amounts of water. Just two gallons to start and normal use of the toilet and bathroom sink. Filling an empty black tank one-third full with water is wasteful, as is using more water than necessary to flush. 5. Happy Camper is the one blackwater tank treatment I've found that does work. No colored chemicals, no detergent, no water softener, no bleach, no chemical tablets, and no excessive amounts of water. 6. If possible, I wait until my blackwater tank is at least half full before dumping. 7. It is easy and cheap to try Happy Camper to see if it does indeed work for you. I have been using Happy Camper for the past 6 years and it works as described above.

RE: Western national park trip

I am planning a trip out west in April for an extended period.I would like some recommendation for campgrounds near the following National Parks, I need full hookup 50 amp. Sequoia,Yosemite,Redwoods,Bryce Canyon,Monument Valley,Grand Canyon,Zion,Arches, Mesa Verde, Canyonlands. I have a toad so a little travel is ok. Any recommendation for Las Vegas,San Diego and Seattle. Thanks for any help you can give!!! I own a 38ft. class A diesel pusher. If you have a smart phone, (iPhone or other) there is a very good app called RVParky. It's really great. Just put in the name of the nearest town and you will get a listing of every RV park with all the data to need to make a good choice.

RE: Problem with Jack antenna

If I remember right, when the Jack is installed, you DO NOT use the power supply/amplifier that came with the Jack if your coach already has an amplifier system for the original crank up antenna. I mention this because you mentioned turning the Jack on with it's own switch. On my coach I have a switching box that has it's own antenna amplifier and there is NOT a separate switch for the Jack. Perhaps if two amplifiers are on this is causing the problem. If you get a whole new Jack ant. then you do not use the old amp. You must use the new one or it wont work. This is spelled out in the instructions several times. I removed the batwing and installed the Jack antenna and I still am using the original power supply. It works just fine.
