RE: New DISH Subscriber With Questions

It takes me about two minutes to switch inputs, crank up the OTA antenna, and scan for locals. IMHO this is a much more sustainable solution to the issue than calling a Dish CSR....

RE: Using electrical outlets off of battery

Wall outlets are 120 volt ac. Your battery is 10 volt dc. No you cannot use wall outlets unless plugged in to 120 volt ac or on a generator. I'm sure he means 12v DC. You can also install an inverter which can convert 12v DC to 120v AC.

The 2015 JGC is a very capable tow vehicle. 7200 pound capacity with a 55 sq-foot frontal area limitation, and a 720 lb max tongue load. Because of the relatively short wheelbase I always recommend a true sway control hitch like the Hensley. FCA Jeep Engineer...

RE: Monaco Knight 40DFT

Monaco's quality started going downhill in 07-08 before they went out of business and were sold off. Navistar has many many complaints on the forums. If it were me, and I am no expert, I would be looking at pre-2007 Monaco, Beaver, Holiday Rambler, Safari and any year Newmars. After 2007 new emmission standards including DEF took place. But that's just me. Good luck. Monaco's bankruptcy didn't happen until March of 2009 so it affected 2010 model and later vehicles. There is no data supporting your comments about their quality falling off ever....

RE: Smart phone apps WHO USES THEM?

All good but when all else fails pay attention to the warning signs! Something many people forget to do.

RE: Garmin RV760LMT Waypionts

The RV760LMT has a trip planner app that runs both on the device itself, and on your smartphone with Bluetooth. That app allows route planning with multiple stops limited only by memory. The routes are stored and can be edited later, before use.

RE: Pensacola, FL to U.P. MI, WI, MN to home again

Your route to Greenville is fine. This is such a great time to visit Michigan. The colors are just beginning way up north... To get to Sleeping Bear I'd take M57W and pick up US131N to M72W. This route (mostly 4 lane) will take you through Traverse City a very nice place to visit.

RE: 2006 HR Endeavor 40PAQ

There should be both a male and female quick disconnect, and an air drain port for air in the generator compartment. There is also an air drain port near the trailer hitch.

RE: best way south to santa rosa beach fl

You can also get off at exit 168 off I-65 in south Montgomery and pick up 331 there and take it all the way to Hwy 98. Too many small towns etc going that way, 55 is much faster 4lane divided highway for most of the way. Have done it both ways and 55 is at least an hour faster for us.

RE: best way south to santa rosa beach fl

I-70 to Louisville then I-65 to AL exit 114. Then AL SR55 to Florala, AL. Then US331 to Santa Rosa Beach, FL.

RE: I-75 south construction

I would advise taking 80 West to 77 South Taking 77 is not a bad idea but, Isn't 77 east of 75?

RE: Bearing failure I presume? Warranty?

No way would I pull out of there till I figured out what was going on. Much easier to fix at a CG than on the side of the road. You have one of two items: Dragging brake drum Bearing on way out I would find a jack, get it up in the air and figure it out. X 2

RE: Exhaust Brake ???

The exhaust brake over 65 mph will only drop you down into 5th and you won't feel it....at 65 it will then drop down to 4th and you will feel it kick in with the extra downshift....NORMAL....it is protecting the trans that way... X 2

RE: Flat Tow vs Dolly or trailer

Obviously you haven't looked into how the Remco pump system is installed and set up. The pump power comes from the coach, not from the towed vehicle. In the event of a system failure, a signal is sent to the dash mounted controller in the coach that turns on a flashing red LED and sounds an alarm. An alarm also sounds if the wire harness is not properly connected when the coach engine is started or running. Our 2002 Toyota RAV4 was towed just over 30,000 miles using a Remco pump with no related transmission issues. Our current 2011 RAV4 has over 10,000 towing miles on it, also with no transmission issues, using the same pump that was installed on the 2002. As far as warranties go, look up the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act of 1975 regarding aftermarket parts usage. Fully aware of all of those things. Still doesn't change my position. But I think you missed my main point. The pump is not necessarily lubing all of the things that need to be lubed inside the tranny. That was not considered in the design at all. I'm happy to hear that your Toyota Trans still works, but have you ever thought that you may have reduced it's life expectancy? Think about that....

RE: %&$# RV Refrigerator

Is the unit in a slide out? Do you have flue fans installed? IMHO You need more airflow in the flue while underway not less. This will provide better condensing. Ram (dynamic) airflow is likely pressuring the upper flue vent while you drive which reduces the condenser performance which relies only on convection. By adding flue blowers you can reverse this affect. Many fridges that are built into slides have these from the factory...

RE: Flat Tow vs Dolly or trailer

Why don't you like the lube pumps? Beyond the issue that they're not distributing fluid to the parts of the trans that really needs it they can have reliability problems, they rely on 12V power and toad batteries can go dead, not everyone installs a charge line from the MH, and we (the manufacturer) are not involved in their development, testing or validation for that purpose. Personally for me I wouldn't take the risk of burning out my tranny knowing how much it'll cost to fix, and it not warranted either. When we had a minivan (a Town & Country) we used a tow dolly that had surge brakes, and added magnetic tow lights on the back.

RE: samsung 197

Frost in the freezer is generally caused by warm moist air entering the freezer. Check your door seals to make sure they're in place and sealing properly.
