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.

RE: What would you add to your RV experience?

I disagree with the request for FHU and pull through everywhere. Lack of those is all that's keeping the national forests tolerable. KOA has plenty of space for people desiring amenities. Now in commercial parks I agree let's get WIFI up to par.

RE: Airing down Sailun Tires ?

I have aired down E rated truck tires for both rocks and sand many times. Never suffered any damage. High speed at low pressure is what causes overheating and sidewall damage.

RE: any advice

I use the jack for my Ford Super duty. When I got trailer I tried out the truck jack and it worked fine. Had on opportunity to actually use it on the road when I had a puncture in a tire. I like the idea that with the long handle to operate jack, you do not have to crawl under trailer to get it in and out. Also make sure that you have a tool to fit trailer lug nuts, that will actually loosen the nuts. +1 why purchase and carry a second jack when your truck already has one?

RE: KLR 650 Hitch Hauler Question....

The wheelbase on the KLR is only 58". I have seen them on haulers of the same dimension as the versahauler, but different brand. VH has a good reputation.

RE: There's no such thing as privacy anymore

Well, we used to have party line phones. You can be as private as you wish, within reasonable limits, if you educate yourself about the tech.

RE: Autostop vs Ready Brute vs something else

I prefer the RVI brake because it's adjustable from the MH. You can monitor it remotely and adjust settings from the driver's seat. PS I am obliged by the union rules to remind you that Cummings is a town in Georgia, and Cummins builds engines. ;-) (believe me if I don't someone else will!) Welcome to the forums!

Blue Ox has great customer service

Just a few words of appreciation to the people at Blue Ox. We had our towbar serviced at the Florida RV supershow this week. After several years and a lot of hard miles on rough roads it was a little loose. For the flat rate of $35 they replaced all the plastic bushings, some bolts, and the rubber boots. So often people on the interwebz only post about negative things, I like to give recognition of good service when the opportunity presents. Thanks again, Blue Ox!

RE: Shopping for New Ford

+1 on Costco. It's a great program.

RE: Cost of driving now vs then

You are correct, unfortunately many people have listened to negative portrayals and fear mongering media reporting that encourages them to feel badly. Critical thinking and analysis is out of fashion.
