RE: RV Financing / Zero Down Options?

Essex aka Bank of the west aka BNP Paribas is usually competitive. In general, zero down and good rates are not compatible.

RE: How about a Forum for all the California Haters?

I don't even need to read the following pages to know the outcome of this... people don't dislike California; they dislike the Californians. And I'm sure the interior Californians dislike the coastal citizens and so forth. That's the way in most places.

RE: do tow vehicles need tire pressure sensors

Aftermarket sensors installed on rubber valve stems can cause leaks or flats. Just something to consider. When I've used them on trailers I switched to metal valves.

RE: Tornadoes while RVing

Thanks, but I think there's too much attention paid to stories spreading worry about low probability risks. Check out FDR's first inaugural address for another perspective. Of course if a lot of you stay home out of worry; more room in the parks for the rest of us... :B PS. Welcome to the forum!

RE: Autonomous vehicles and RVing in the future

There was a time you had to hand crank the car. And control the spark advance, fuel mixture, and row the gears. It's almost here. Breathe and relax. "They" are not coming to take away your driver operated cars. When automation becomes an available option some will pay extra to get it, eventually it will be the new norm, and then just expected. Just like air conditioning.

RE: RV manufacturers, I am calling you out

Just call out all your fellow buyers who shop at Wal-Mart. Likely you bought the biggest RV you could get for the lowest price. You can't chastise the builders for giving people what they want. It's an old tired story people shopping the thrift store and then complaining about quality and customer service.

RE: 2017 Forester for Towing Behind M/H

Manual transmission Subies are towable. Autos not. No 2016 Subaru's are approved by Subaru for 4 down or on a dolly, probably the same for 2017. Dick Unfortunately the internet is full of opinions spread as fact. If anyone cares, read section 9-16 of the 2017 Forester owner's manual, where the instructions for flat towing are given. Some are obviously confused because they either don't know the difference between a CVT and manual transmission, or the difference between approving towing one transmission vs. prohibiting the other. I'm not interested in further debating this topic, best wishes to the OP in sorting it out.

RE: Loading 4 wheelrs on bed of pick up

Toy haulers are nice, but only if the camping and trailheads are at a single location. Often that's not the case and you need to transport the quads from the campsite to the trail.

Limit bandwidth for Win 10 updates?

I know there are some real pros on here, hopefully someone has knowledge on this topic. Google has failed me. Win 10 consumes all the available bandwidth on my home network for updates (1.5 mbps). So nothing else is functional, can't even browse when updates take over. I run 10 pro on two machines, whatever the latest build is, it's on auto update. I have tried the fix I found, which are the policy constraints for bandwidth for BITS and WUDO. Neither functions to limit the updates, and I see I'm not the only one to complain of this. Is there no option internally; is add on software for network management the only option? Many thanks!

RE: Tow Speed excess!

If safety is really your top priority, then you really should fly. And your absence from the highway will leave more room for the rest to proceed at an efficient pace.

RE: Advise on Solar Mounts ....

I ran aluminum angle the full length of the panels and screwed it through all the roof trusses and used adhesive. That's the base part. Made my own panel brackets from angle to mount the panels on the base part and connected the two parts on one side with stainless hinges for easy maintenance. Certified for any wind the MH can stand, LOL.

RE: How Often Do You Trade?

As far as living accommodations it's all about floor plan. A very personal choice. I like to drive a fiver combo on the move, it's more maneuverable and reversible. At the destinations I prefer a towed SUV to a large truck as a daily driver. The MH is marginally easier to set up, but we could disconnect and level the fiver almost as fast as disconnecting the towed from the MH.

RE: How big an issue is weight?

Weight is always a huge issue here in the netherworld. In the real world, not so much.

RE: Class A vs. Class C Handling

In what temperatures? Enclosed tanks might be important.

RE: Lost transmission dip stick...

Just take a length of steel wire and bend the end into a bit of a corkscrew shape. Shove it down the tube while twisting and it'll wrap around the lost dipstick.

RE: Check eng light {follow up}

Wiring shorted on my Jeep and took out a circuit in the computer. So the original advice may not be wrong. There's a company in Miami sells remanufactured computers less costly than most. They're on the web. allcomputerresources.com

RE: Figuring the correct tire pressure

Your analysis is correct. As always you'll get a bunch of wildly conflicting opinions on the internet. Trust Goodyear, they do this for a living.

RE: Blue OX Alpha BX7365 vs Blue OX Avail BX7420

I have used both. Either is fine for the Jeep. I changed to the Avail because our new towed is a full size truck and with the longer wheelbase the towed would contact the MH in sharp turns with the Alpha. Never any contact with the Alpha and a 4 door Jeep. The 10k bar will perhaps hold up longer if a lot of rough roads are in your future.
