RE: Can you back up with a toad 4 down

Try this in a pinch if there are two of you. Start the toad up and pull the rv backwards. If you have to put the rv in reverse versus neutral just keep a tiny bit of tension using the rv brake. When backing a boat down a ramp I put the vehicle in neutral and let the boat pull me back. Goes straight as an arrow if I leave the steering wheel alone. And as a side note., My business partner backed his up a few feet to reach the fuel pumps at a station., Down the road he said the toad tried to pass him. He saw it in the rear view mirrors. Good thing for safety chains.

RE: Push button start towables not sure it applies to all !!

As a Jeep engineer I can say what you were told is a load of crap! The ONLY Flat Tow requirements for the Cherokee are clearly spelled out in the owners manual under "Recreational Towing". Beat me to it! This is a bunch of baloney. No damage will occur. Been working on vehicle electrical systems for 40 years. I have a push button start vehicle. In my case, having to push the button to the accessory position causes a lot of battery drain so I ran a charge line.

RE: AC with Solar Panel

To keep your batteries from running down due to small constant drains. This will increase the life of the batteries.

RE: High Voltage DC Switch Source for Solar

Just to be clear, are you actually connecting them in series to produce over 100 volts DC? Or are you using them in parallel through a regulator to produce battery voltages?

RE: Does the engine alternator charge house batteries?

Now that everyone agrees it should charge the batteries please note that an Alternator should not be used as the primary charging system for a large bank of batteries. If you have been boon docking then running the generator is your best choice to refill them. Most folks don't follow that suggestion and many pay for it with a new alternator sooner than necessary.

RE: Intermittent Problem with Fridge

Turn the gas off and then remove the small orifice on the end of the propane tube that supplies the gas to the burner. Soak it in alcohol. DO NOT USE anything else such as a tooth pick or needle. Could be a tiny spec of anything acting like a check valve. Can be intermittent as heck. Do not turn anything on with the end of the orifice off or you will find out how volatile 2 seconds of propane is. Cleared the dust out of my tree I can tell you for a fact.

RE: Exhaust Brake Usage??

With my rv the exhaust brake is rarely turned off. It disengages below a certain speed.

RE: Long Long Trailer Movie

Recording it for the wife. She loves it. It is soooo true though. The junk she just had to take along about flattened the tires.

RE: Cable is going up again and satallite won't work.

Satfinder application on a smart phone will let you wander around the property to check for a clear view of the birds. An installer would not want to deal with a coax 200 feet from the house. On many occasions I have found a small hole in the trees that works. Does your neighbor have satellite? If so maybe he would allow you to run a coax from is dish system or to mount yours next to his.

RE: Attaching Porta Bote racks to the side of my RV

I never thought of the thermometer. Just for fun I will give that a try. Sometimes a stud finder will help. The humidity thing works well too. Guess I should take a picture and annotate it with measurements for future things.

RE: pull-forward sites?

Sewer connections on each side, electric and water in one place only. Place mid ship and should be good for either way in. We made sure there was not a tv hanging down up front in our MH. The view out the one piece window is great.

RE: California winter RV locations without freezing temps?

Need to be a bit more specific in location. Anywhere in the Sacramento Valley will be temperate. Freezing conditions in the Valley last just a couple of days at a time and are not common in general. I have never winterized. If a few nights of freezing are predicted I will open cabinets and turn the heater to its lowest setting. I would say from Redding southward will give you nice weather. I'm a native northern Californian.

RE: Need Help! Coach wont restart!

When checking the fuses did you actually pull them out? You can get fooled easily. With a test light you simply touch each end of the fuse to see if things light up. No pulling fuses.

RE: visual monitoring via wifi

Check out Swann.com Wireless cameras can be a real pain. Swann has systems for all levels. Very easy to monitor via the internet.

RE: Need Help! Coach wont restart!

You tube tutorial The video is a good demonstration of how a starter works. You can use a small wire with the ends stripped slightly and hold it on the small terminal and touch the large cable. You will probably get a bit of spark and the noise will make you jump. There are inexpensive remote control starters that will do the same thing but from a safer distance.

RE: Electric steps won't shut off with switch when retracted!

Helpful video After some significant troubleshooting today I have decided to change the magnetic switch itself. The magnet is just fine. With my setup, if you wave a magnet across the switch a couple of times quickly the steps will retract. If the door switch becomes an issue it could.
