RE: Balancing tires on bent steel rims?

Wheel run out cannot be fixed with any type of balancing period.

RE: question about towing a 2016 jeep wrangler

You can test the steering column yourself by turning it 360 degrees and back with no key in the ignition. It will be hard to turn but is doable. The wheels will always track straight behind the MH. You have to have no steering lock because they need to be free to turn when the MH turns. If you've invested in a good towbar and baseplate setup there will be no issues with bumpy roads. I've been over some serious bumps without any issues.

RE: Electric steps

There is no manual retract method on most step systems. As stated you would need to disconnect the step mechanism from the electric motor and then you can manually retract. If you do this you will also need to secure the steps in the closed position as they will not stay retracted, a ratchet strap can be used for this.

RE: Air conditioning dripping

It is not normal for it to drip inside. If it is it's either iced up or your seal is failing. Or, the evaporator condensate drain holes are plugged...

RE: Residential Refrigerator Electric Only

You may want to consider an optional solar charging package in addition to any additional battery upgrades that may be availlable for that model.

RE: 101 degree heat & 30 amp air-conditioning

I disagree with those who say to turn the A/C on in the morning. If it were me in that situation I would run the A/C hard throughout the night and "subcool" the coach. It will be easier for the system to maintain the temps during the day then. Interior surfaces and fixtures will al "soak" cold during the night and will help maintain in the daytime. Just need to use a blanket at night...

RE: Risk of down-shifting?

If you have an exhaust brake there would be a separate switch included to turn it on and off. You do not have a Jake brake that's a little different. If you do have an exhaust brake just turn it on and the trans will automatically downshift on its own.

RE: External fans in refrigerator

The fans should be setup to blow air upward in the flue behind the refrigerator. Both should operate at all times. Generally these are installed when a fridge is installed in a slideout where the flue has to exit horizontally to the side of the RV.

RE: Roku, Verison and data

Be aware that even with Sling and many other streaming services your local channels can be blacked out when away from your home network.

RE: Downsized the house....now the truck???

Why bother? You already have a truck that is bought and paid for. Convert it to an SRW, so that it is not as wide in the garage. Problem solved. All you need is a set of wheels with the proper offset, and some body shop to take off the dually fenders. You don't even need to change axles, you just need the SRW hubs. Easy ! The OP already has a SRW truck...

RE: Flat towing a 2017 Ford Fusion 2.7L, AWD w/auto trans.

2017 Fusion Owners Manual Pg 226: All-wheel Drive Vehicles All-wheel drive vehicles CANNOT be flat-towed (all wheels on the ground) as vehicle or transmission damage may occur. It is recommended to tow your vehicle with . all four (4) wheels off the ground such as when using a car-hauling trailer. Otherwise, you cannot recreational tow your vehicle.

RE: Towing wrangler battery questions

There has been an error in the Wrangler OM for a few years. To tell if you have a steering wheel lock simply try turning the steering wheel a full turn and back with no key in the ignition. It will be hard to turn since the power steering is not operating but can be done. If the wheel turns there is no reason at all to leave the key in ACC. And of course it has to be a 4 X 4 model with the TCase in neutral and tranny in park.

RE: Towing wrangler battery questions

2017 has no steering lock, so no need to leave key in the vehicle.

Splendide with the vent is the best we've had.

RE: Dodge 2500 or 3500 for a Travel Trailer

I grew up on a large farm many years ago. We used a one ton truck for everything. I like them... Probably a dual rear wheel model? They do come in a single rear wheel configuration now, look just like a 2500 but have better capacities...
