RE: Re-Winterize?

Thanks, everyone, for the helpful replies. Yes, re-winterizing is not impossible, but finding the time to get the pink stuff, get the rv, do the work, etc is non-trivial right now. If I can't do that, I'll leave it plugged in with the furnace set low. This winter is truly the gift that keeps on giving! -dan

So... we had a very enjoyable trip to central Florida the 1st week of April and are now enjoying some warm weather here in the Chicago west burbs. But... Forecast is for several hours below freezing (high 20's) Monday and Tuesday night. I'd hate to spend the money on pink stuff and the time to re-winterize, so - in my shoes, would you just turn on the furnace overnight? Space heaters in the water bay? I do have an unheated, uninsulated barn it could go in, but the temp would drop pretty quickly there, too. Rig is an 08 Damon Astoria DP. thanks in advance. -dan

RE: 2014 Cherokee first tow today

Couldn't you use the tow hooks rather than buy a base plate? They are not designed for flat towing. Would it work? maybe, but not worth the risk for me, and you'd still need to rig something to attach to the tow bar.

RE: 2014 Cherokee first tow today

Thanks for the kind words. I didn't do the wrenching, and the dealer who did billed five hours for baseplates, lighte, and breakaway switch for the brake buddy. -Dan

RE: 2014 Cherokee first tow today

Just did the Roadmaster baseplates this weekend, and I am very pleased with the result - minimal butchery of the grill, the breakaway leads feed through a pre-existing plug/grommet, and the whole install is very inconspicuous. The loss of the tow hooks is not all that meaningful to me. I can't get dropbox photos to embed, so here are the links: Pic 1 Pic 2 Pic 3 Pic 4 -dan

RE: thumping of slide awning in high gusty wind

It is a slide topper. As for the make I don't know and my motor home is currently in storage so can't even run out and look. I suppose it makes a huge difference? Just my luck. Same problem on the slide topper. I had the shop tighten the tension a bit, and since then, no problems. -dan

RE: Bunks in motorhomes

Fleetwood had a really nice floor plan with the discovery 42A. The rear bedroom had a full bath between it and the master. I believe the model was discontinued for 2013 Dan Dan, That's a very interesting floorplan for sure. It must be a keeper for the one's who bought it as there aren't even any for sale used. The only kind I've liked happen to be in a Prevost, but I wanted to make sure I'm not missing any out there. Thanks for your suggestion. What they will do now is to build basically that interior configuration o. The American Revolution, just with more power and more up-market fittings. That floor plan is 42T if I recall correctly. I was (this) close to pulling the trigger on the discovery last year, and will look hard at the revolution if business continues to improve. -dan

RE: 2014 Cherokee - connect tow bar at tow hooks ?

Roadmaster has their baseplates up for the trailhawk models, and the installation appears to require the removal of the tow hooks.

RE: Dodge Challenger transmission trouble

I bought my '13 6 speed RT in late March to tow behind our class A Sightseer. I bought it because it can be flat towed without any modifications. It has 3300 miles on it. Long story short, took a short 200 mile trip towing it behind the Rv and within a few miles after unhooking and driving it started to grind going into 4th then shortly after it would lock up altogether. I towed it in neutral and under 65 mph just as the owners manual says. Any ideas because I can't figure out what could have caused it? Did you get any resolution to this trans problem, and are you satisfied that the 6spd Challenger can be towed? I'm about to pull the trigger on one, and towing is a critical part of my needs. Thanks in advance. -dan

RE: 2008 Damon Astoria 3376 Pacific Ed. Bunkhouse

We have the same unit, and we are very happy with it. Prices are all over the place, but you may run into a situation where the owner is so upside down that he can't sell it. -dan

RE: Brake Buddy Remote Question

I just went through my owners manual and cannot find the answer to this. When braking, I can feel the Equinox braking as well, but isn't the light at the top of the remote supposed to light to give me visual confirmation? The rest of the remote lights are working. I had the same issue and contacted them. They sent me an extension cord for the remote transmitter, so now it dangles from the rear view mirror and transmits fine. -Dan

RE: towing 2000 VW Behind MH

No need to pull a fuse, just turn the ignition key to the accessory position to unlock the steering wheel. On my 2000 passat, removing the key is what locks the steering wheel, so I just turn it off and leave the key in. 35,000 plus miles of towing and no drivetrain issues to report. -Dan

RE: Norcold wood door panel removal

Take the top decorative fake chrome trim off and the panel should slide up and out. Usually a couple small screws hold the trim piece in place. Thanks. This panel appears to be glued to the door front. There is nothing other than the handle that comes off the top.

Norcold wood door panel removal

The cheap plastic hinge pin receiver on the lower door of my N611 broke off. The immediate fix should be some epoxy, and that fix seems a lot more likely to hold if I can get the 10# wood panel off the door. Can anyone school me on how to remove the decorative wood panel? Thanks in advance. Dan
