We are on our second motorhome and second extended maintenance program. The first one we took out on a six year old used motorhome. It was Good Sam Gold plan and I got more out of it than I paid in. I now have a six year XTRA-RIDE PLATINUM plan for our 2009 Destination. Not the least expensive by any means, but very good, complete coverage and extremely easy to deal with. It also gives us some peace of mind.
Our experience - YMMV
A couple years ago, my wife and I had a 10 year old motorhome. Retirement was still eight years off. We decided to purchase a new motorhome, with a good interest rate and have it half paid for by the time we retired. Stick and brick will be paid for by then so just have the motorhome payment. I am a local government employee with a defined benefit retirement. does give me some peace of mind knowing how much I should get each month in retirement.
Just our decision - YMMV
I use a 311 receiver in mine. I have the main TV connected to the receiver by RCA Cable, and the Coax output connected to the distribution box. I did find that the output of the Sat receiver was connected to the Auxilary port of the distribution box and not the Sat port. Set your other TV (s) to channel 3 or 4 and you should bet your Sat signal. All TVs in my coach must watch the same Sat channel as it is a single receiver.
I towed a 2005 Miata 6-speed, four-down for about three years. I used a RoadMaster Falcon 2 tow bar and the Road Master baseplates on the Miata. For wiring the Miata I used diodes, but if I was to do it now, I would look and adding another bulb and socket to the tail light. Wires are pretty short on the Miata.
I did not have a brake system on the Miata - probably be a good idea, some states say yes, some say no.

Recently got a 2012 Grand Cherokee. Have removed my US Gear UTB-1000 brake system from the "old toad" a 2008 Liberty. Need to install the UTB-1000 in the Grand Cherokee. Need advice from someone whom has done this or had it done. Interested in locations for the vacuum pump under the hood and the Servo Motor. The area around the Master Brake Cylinder is "partitioned" off, though the vacuum line is accessible. The Servo I was planning to mount on passenger side foot well instead of under the seat like on the Liberty.
Suggestions would be appreciated. Maybe a link to a complete write up - already installed once, so I know that part - just not where things should go in this vehicle.
