RE: Bolts Failing on Equalizer Hitch

A known weight at a measured distance is not "guessing".

RE: Caution About Buying a Car with Electronic Power Steering

Death wobble has been around long before eps. Yep. Had a JK Wrangler that would DW in tow when the front end got a little wear. Had a Ram 3500 develop DW at around 30k miles. Hit a bump just right and it would go into earthquake mode.

RE: Before you get an insurance quote from Hartford, STOP! ...

Interesting. I do have my auto policy with them, and they told me that they don't write Motor homes. Confirmed this when I cancelled my 5th wheel and truck. Ended up with Safeco. More interesting, we have our MH insured with Hartford. Perhaps it varies by state.

RE: Ceiling lift for handicapped individual

Lots of variation in roof construction, be specific about make and model for better answers. Edit: I see it's a Damon Intruder from your other post. Not familiar with that one personally. The aluminum trusses in our Newmar would do it I'm sure, with adequate hardware. Need to find someone who's familiar with the roof internals on yours. May have to add some supporting framing reaching down the walls to the floor, worst case.

RE: Should a 13,500 BTU A/C be wired to a 15 or 20 amp breaker?

20 amp. Check and make sure the circuit is 12 gauge wire, too. 12 gauge = 20 amps 14 gauge = 15 amps (a.c. circuits) < "alternating current"

RE: Before you get an insurance quote from Hartford, STOP! ...

Submit a written request to delete your application. There are good reasons why businesses with sensitive information do not allow rank and file workers to alter or delete permanent records. If you knew how much Google and Facebook have on file about you you’d really blow a gasket .

RE: RV Navigational Apps???

We've been travelling for decades and through 49 states with high clearance rigs, and I've never understood this demand for RV specific navigation. We have yet to find a route where low clearance is not well identified in advance by the road signs. Never had to stop and back up, never collided with an overpass. All the nav apps will route major roads over minor ones if you use the default settings. Just don't switch the route method to "shortest" and you'll be fine. The real problem in our experience is low hanging trees. And you'll never find those on the map.

RE: RV batteries...how many?

First,look for a more energy-efficient oxygen concentrator, one that is portable battery powered will use much less power. In general, with your loads I guesstimate 2 batteries per day, so 4 or 6 if you want 2 or 3 days. That's if you get a more efficient oxygen concentrator. With the power hog you have now, it's going to be ugly without shore power or generator. I have family on oxy too, and I agree with your thinking. Do not depend on any single point of failure. Have two oxygen sources and two power sources.

RE: Anyone Excited about the 3.0 Duramax?

I doubt the lifespan of a modern high output light duty diesel is any different than gasoline. Revs are higher, power densities are up, high injection pressures all take a toll.

RE: Solar Kits from Amazon

I bought my Renogy stuff via Amazon because I can count on them for reliable delivery and good customer service if there's a problem. Bought discrete parts as the kits had bits I didn't need.

RE: AGM Starting Battery Voltage 2014 Grand Cherokee

Dash gauges are frequently programmed to meet customer expectations, the marketers apparently think real data will confuse drivers. Sadly they are probably right for the majority.

RE: Would appreciate advice on a toad brake system

We use the RVi also.Four years,about 50k miles, and we have multiple toads. The ability to monitor, test the brakes, and remotely adjust the toad braking from the MH cockpit is valuable.

RE: New Bosch diesel technology provides solution to NOx problem

Good news. Some people have forgotten that gasoline engines spent two decades in purgatory between the time emission controls killed performance and the time when performance surpassed the pre-emission levels. Diesel engines by comparison have suffered less performance degradation in the implementation of pollution control. Looks like compression ignition still has some life left.

RE: Thinking of a class A but have one question about the gen

Sell the Hondas and spend the money on solar panels.

RE: Class A vs. Super C

I thought I wanted a super C to replace our gas A, but after a bunch of test drives we liked the DP form factor better. None of our opinions matter, just get you and your wife behind the wheel and get some test time in. We like the view and open space of the pusher cockpit mainly.

RE: Blue lock tite

Green penetrating Loctite is a more appropriate strength for small screws. Silicone is a lot easier to find.
