RE: Want to buy a Class B, What Model?

Almost any class B will handle two scooters, so pick your RV first and then get the scooter racks. Rear rack clicky More for back Front carrier

RE: Send/Receiving Fax Using Cell Phone.. Can I?

I just take a photo of a document with my I phone and email it to the recipient. They can enlarge, or print it if they wish.Do that. Any business still using fax is stuck in the 1990s. And if they won't accept the email method, they were born in the 1890s. Not positive but I think my VA uses FAX only and not E-Mail.

RE: Installing 12 v power port; Question

Best to avoid a 12v power/ciggy plug altogether whenever possible. They just waste the battery by making heat, and powering that annoying inverter alarm. Right on---------------I have two in my RV, one to charge phones and one close to the batteries to check voltage. I wouldn't run an inverter on one unless it was an emergency.

RE: Need some real life advice

I run load range E on my F250 and my fiver when I was pulling my fiver and the rear tires were maxed out I had Zero problems with them and still running them. I will take Firestone over Michelin for the price alone as the life expectancy is about the same. I have noticed that the Michelin's seam to have softer sidewalls and I certainly don't need that. To each his own.

RE: RV life expectancy

We full timed in a 1999 Coachman 365 island kitchen, 3 slide outs for 8 years. Got water damage and never was the same. http://i938.photobucket.com/albums/ad222/GA_Boy/CarTrkCamperSideView_zps2085f0fc.jpg]Clicky

RE: Wireless head phones

Thanks Vet Man I will research them. Can you use one set of batteries while charging the other? Are the Bats. AAA---AA or just for the Sony? I use a lot of AAA and AA rechargeables.

Wireless head phones

I need a good set and not sure how long the batteries last. My example looks rather cheap. I do have a slight hearing impairment. I have been using regular head phones with a cable running from TV to HP for watching. Any and all suggestions will be appreciated. Clicky

RE: Why check temp on tires? Really necessary?

I check tires and bearings but not every stop. Usually once per 500 miles. When I was pulling my fiver with auto behind I checked all tires and trailer bearings. Never had to worry about truck bearings.

RE: Eroding rubber hoses in the power sterring system

Most large parts stores can make up hydraulic, A/C, and other type hoses. They need a sample of the fittings, the dimensions and the pressure requirement on Hydraulic hoses and can make them for you. I would certainly purge the system and replace with new fluid.

RE: Dish Satellite Signal Meter

The signal meter in the Dish receiver works for me also. I use a cheap in line meter to get close and then use the receiver and TV to fine tune. I'm close though and can adjust the antenna and see the TV or wife will give me a one second apart count of the strength meter registered on the TV sometimes.

RE: Dish Satellite Signal Meter

Not to hijack the thread, but where did you find the info to program the SF-500? It should be in the manual that came with it.

RE: This bridge is still in the USA today ????

I wonder why the RED TAPE guys haven't allowed the road surface to be lowered 18 inches?

RE: LED upgrade

TomM, I take it the White is brighter/clearer than the Warm White, right? My lights look similar to THESE except with 1156 bulbs. Maybe I need something like THIS. Thanks

RE: How to Camp Happy!

We are happy when we set up, get our rods and head for the beach. Even happier when we come back to RV with a nice mess of Pompano and Whiting.:)

RE: Tire Extenders

I use one like this to fill dual tires. stems should be 180* from each other. I would also use These beads for balancing. Remove all external weights and add the proper amount of beeds and forget it. I bought one of THESE to measure and put Thesefrom WalMart into bags for my tire Guy to install with my new set of tires. They balance great and I feel no vibration. Even if the tread picks up small rocks the beads will compensate for them. I don't have a clue as to how long the plastic ones will last but I wanted to try them. For a Dually I would go with the more expensive DYNA-BEADS.

RE: Battery charger

Thanks for all the replies. I gave up on the idea of using the extra converter as a charger and bought THIS to replace the HF one that went bad. It is for my shop only, made in Mexico which I trust way more than made in China. It comes with a three year warranty. 1. Your thoughts please as it says fully automatic. 2. Can I bring batteries to 100% if I leave the setting on 10 amp? I'm guessing that it will eventually go to the 2 amp maintenance mode if set on 10 amps. I have really learned a lot about batteries on this forum that I was ignorant of before. 3. Also can I use this charger to charge one U-1 Gel Cell battery. 4. Is it worth the 70 bucks I paid for it? Thanks in advance.

RE: Stowaway 2 Swing Away Storage Box

I'm not sure about the law but couldn't he use a back window as an escape hatch? I would use my side windows as they can be pushed out easily.
