RE: Refrigerator cover

There are generally two little clips that you have to rotate the head 90 degrees and they are released. Then it will come right off.

RE: Must see and do things near straits state park

If you don't want to cross the very expensive bridge, then look up Sawmill Creek Park and Headlands Dark Sky Park. That later is a place to be on a moonless summer night. Matt Really? It's the one and only toll road in the state of Michigan! For $4 I'll take it all day long....

RE: Tire separated from axle

How often do you torque them? I used to do it daily and always found one or two loose!

RE: Refrigerator wouldn't work on gas when leaving

FYI: The refrigerator does require 12V to run the electronics, even when on gas. If you don't disconnect the battery between trips it's a good bet it's dead. There are several parasitic loads that will kill a battery between trips.

RE: Patriot Blue OX

Sorry to hear about your problem but it really sounds like the system wasn't setup properly on the Fiat vehicle. It almost sounds like the brakes were applied all the time. I just don't see how in 20 miles of towing you could do that much damage if properly setup?

RE: Picking up Wi-Fi

Just because you are able to connect to a CG WiFi system does not mean it will be usable... More often than not these systems are virtually useless due to limited bandwidth because of those who are trying to stream their favorite TV shows. This why those of us who really want internet access get our own hot spot device or use our smart phone as a hotspot.

RE: Travel Trailer Tilt

Three inches, really? You'll encounter campsites that have more tilt than that. It's really not an issue at all.

RE: Diesel Motor Home Insurance

National General was the cheapest we could find.

RE: Do Canadians pay tolls?

Only those states who have DMV reciprocity agreements with your province could charge you. It definitely works across the border, as I drive the 407 around Toronto and I get a bill here in Michigan.

RE: Tip: "Tractor" fuel = RV diesel

Pretty much every Pilot Flying J truck pump has that interface. Also, it's highly illegal to run the off road dyed diesel in your RV. That's why it has dye in it.

RE: Is It A Rear Engine Or Rear Drive That Makes It A Pusher?

The opposite of pusher is puller. So engine behind drive wheels = pusher, engine in front of drive wheels = puller. We don't seem to hear the term puller though. So in general a pusher refers to a DP. And most pushers are diesel, but the UFO chassis is a gas pusher. So the answer to the OP question is "engine behind drive axle".

RE: 5th Wheel Crossing into Canada

Have you "driven" that route using Google Maps Streetview?

RE: Would you tow ?

Resident Jeep Engineer Here... Yes it's doable. The JGC can tow up to 7000#. Get a good true sway control hitch like the Hensley. PM if you have questions. The 8 cyl. can tow 7000 lb. mine only 5000 We're both a little off: The 3.6L can tow: LAREDO Class III — Heavy Duty Trailer Tow Group (Available) Max Towing: 6,200 Pounds, 4x2/4x4 Max Payload: 1,180 Pounds, 4x2 Max Payload: 1,320 Pounds, 4x4

Hi all--our '97 Dodge 170P has a glitch. Crazy weather here in the Pocono Mts. of Penna. has us using both the heat and the AC at times. Unit has started sending all output through the defroster vents instead of where you want it. Both systems work fine, it just sends everything out of the defroster vents. What gives and where do I start? X 2

RE: Towing laws

Most chassis are limited to towing 2000# without trailer brakes. Check the chassis OM. So, it's not necessarily the towing laws but the coaches physical ability to stop the additional trailer weight that matters. Chances are you'll need a supplemental brake system anyway...

RE: Inverter in same compartment as batteries?

Not is the same compartment = YES As close as possible to the batteries = YES

RE: Illinois/Wisconsin or Indiana/Michigan - UP Trip

I'd go up US31, US131, or US127 all in Central/Western Michigan.

RE: Best choice for long road trips

Fifth Wheels are much more immune to sway over any TT because the hitch pivot point is directly over the axle. We currently have a DP but if we were to go back to a towable it would definitely be a 5er.
