RE: Tire Rotation

Google is your friend. Why not take direction from your chassis and tire makers? Many recommendations here will differ. For most MH owners the tires get old before they wear out. If you are in the minority who will wear out the tread then rotation can extend tread life.

RE: Re keying an RV

Maybe I'm too much the skeptic, but first post? Recommending a product? I hope this is on the level (not selling your own website) in which case welcome to the forum. Definitely some level of demand for this service.

RE: Towing a lifted Jeep on 35's?

I toad one with 37's. Big tires kill ball joints and front wheel bearings quickly, be prepared for that.

RE: Copilot not working with car speakers

I have a similar experience with several cars. Phone calls go to the car Bluetooth but the navigation app does not. Mostly I use Google maps. Interested to see what resolves here.

RE: Toad higher or lower than RV and 5K or 10K capicty riser?

Unless your MH stops with +10G's of deceleration, a couple of inches angularity will never lift the toad. If you do experience that much decel, you have bigger problems to worry about. You need brakes on the toad, too.

RE: Have you ever been hacked on an open CG WiFi system?

From a security POV it matters not whether the access point is open or secured. Secured AP just means people without the password can't connect. What matters is that the person in control of the network can monitor all the traffic. If your traffic is insecure it can be read. If it's encrypted (HTTPS etc.) then (probably) not. I say "probably" because there are methods that sophisticated hackers could use that may be invisible to the typical user. But not likely anything the average person will experience.

Cross-Platform Calendar app recommendations?

Hello, all. I'm looking for a calendar app that can easily sync between my (windows) PC, and android tablet and phone. May as well throw the SO's Iphone in the mix as well. Recommendations? I don't need anything too complex, just reminders of what my appointments are and birthday reminders etc. Thanks for your thoughts!

RE: TV Batteries Charge Question

Yes, and yes. Good questions. PS you may have one battery bad, which can prevent the other from charging. In which case disconnecting the dead one and starting with one will get you going. This applies if you have a shorted cell in one.

Good choice.

RE: Adding extra batteries

We have a 1 or 2 or both battery switch on our banks. And two batteries will run a furnace all night.

RE: Space Shuttle Challenger

I was working in Florida and standing outside with a group of coworkers watching the launch. Something you never forget. RIP

RE: 2015 Toyota Highlander V-6 All Wheel Drive Towing

You can tow Subaru AWD with manual tranny. Some GM AWD e.g. Hummer have neutral tow function . Sorry I don't know about the Yota. Likely the E F variants are minor changes but I would not buy one to be the test pilot of that theory.

RE: Solar - anyone regret getting PWM charge controller?

Fred, roof space is a limitation for some of us. I need all the power I can get in a limited footprint.

RE: "Having Said That"

On the other hand... Maybe it's not an attempt to sound like anything. Could be the poster is conflicted between two choices and is seeking input. That being said, what does it matter? :B

RE: Are we near the bottom of the stock market decline ?

Market timing is not a sound strategy. Of course many people try it anyway. Lottery tickets sell, too. Whatever helps you sleep at night is all good.

RE: Best Tow dinghy

Some manuals are not approved to tow. Some transfer cases do not have a neutral position. It's more complicated than that. I didn't read the whole thread but surely by now the MH magazine dinghy guide has been mentioned.

RE: If the CG office wants to photocopy your DL...

So here's the story: The person checking us in asked to see my DL and then photocopied it. I asked what's the reason, because I'm concerned about identity theft. (there are six to eight photocopies of OTHER people's DL laying on the counter in plain view) The owner responded that he needs to know who's on his property. After hearing my concerns he agreed to secure my copy and return it when we checked out. He took to the next room. We would not have proceeded except we were meeting up with a group who was already staying there. My concern is the lack of security and collecting personal ID's for facetious reasons. If there were any security or legal issues, then certainly credit card numbers and license plates are adequate for the purposes of law enforcement. During our stay there, I entered and left the office a few times, and I noticed a group of workampers could freely come and go through the office complex. It was sort of random with regard to who you might find in there. Not really a full time clerk per se. I did ask for and get my copy back when we left. When the clerk retrieved my copy it was not locked up, but in an open bin I could see from the outer room. I won't stay there again, or any other place with that requirement. In my view the operation is playing fast and loose with the personal information of their customers. Not acceptable in this day and age. A number of people could have easily taken my license. I could have taken someone's license copy when the clerk turned away from me, or I could have taken a picture of the whole batch with my phone.
