RE: Replace RV Body?

The last two States in the US to require a Title for an automobile were RI and MA. I bought a 1970 used Olds in 1974-1975. It had no title. Tried to Title/Register it in NJ as I was entitled to do being I was on Active Duty with the US Navy. What a nightmare. You forgot Taxifornia aka California. Many years ago, my Father in Law bought a used car from a Towing Company, it had a title that was Salvage. He tried to get a clean Title in Arizona and they issued him a salvage title. Boy did the air turn blue as mad as he was. Real nightmare.

RE: Installing a Titan 65 Gallon Fuel Tank - long, but with pics

Boatycall Excellent looking job there. That same Ford Stealership in Lakewood told me that to recalibrate the miles-to-empty display, $129.... So $400 to replace a $0.10 clip, and $129 to recalibrate my display.... I told them they're on crack, I'll find someplace else. Maybe they need customer service lessons from Titan and TorkLift... What you said above Is one of the reasons I bought a Ram 2500 Laramie CC/LB IL-6, 6.7L CTD, instead of a Ford F250 Lariat Power Stroke basically the main reason. I went to 6 different Ford Dealerships and got 6 different prices (several thousand dollar apart, not several hundred apart) like I got at the 5 Ram Dealerships I went to. I have always owned Fords, will never go back.

RE: Junk/Bulk Mail

You might want to ask a moderator to move this to the Technology Corner for you. This forum is for support regarding the web site itself. Rob The reason I posted this here was I was not sure and the problem only occurs on RV.Net I think it might be AT&T U-Verse Yahoo Mail :h

Junk/Bulk Mail

Good Morning, I have 2 computers, a Windows Laptop, (windows7). Also a desk top Mac Os Sierra. On my Windows OS every post shows up as bulk mail but it posts in the in box. On my Mac computer not every post goes to the Junk Folder, but the majority does. Is there any rhyme or reason to this?

RE: Switching to Digital tv

But.... what about oxygen free coax? Aren't the pictures brighter? :) I think it's too late to save my boots but I can still roll up my pant legs and roll down the windows to prevent drowning :R :S :h What? You don't have a snorkel? I never learned how to swim, even though my father threw me into Lake Okoboji :S

RE: Cpap and camping

My RV has a 12v dc Plug on the shelf where the idiot box (television) goes, and there is also a 12v dc plug above the bed in the bedroom.

I am looking to buy a new Jeep. What do I need to get to tow a 4x4. First things first is to make SURE you buy a car that CAN be towed 4-down!! Do NOT EVER take a salesman's word for it either. Use the owners manual to see if the car can be towed 4-down or needs a dolly. In the owners manual it is usually found under "Recreational Towing". Most use BlueOx towing products. They have been around for years and many of us use them. base plate (for car) tow bar led kit for taillight brake away switch cable/coiled tow chains auxiliary braking system - (for car) either Brake Buddy or brake system incorporated in tow bar I would read everything you can what is all involved for towing a car off the BlueOx website. LOTS of good info there for the newbie to read and learn about towing, 'all in one place' ! And then ask questions of other forum members regarding using other brands and the pros and cons of using other brands. My first Toad I went Blue Ox products all the way. If I had do overs the only thing I would change is I would buy a tow bar that has the braking system incorporated in it as opposed to using the Brake Buddy. blueox.com Do Not Believe anything a car salesman tells you. There is a yearly guide published . Read it until it falls apart! Yearly Tow Guide Hitch Source eTrailer Road Master Inc. Good luck

We've towed a Jeep Wrangler of one sort or another over 100K miles. Here is an article I wrote that will provide some of the answers you are looking for... Towing a Vehicle With an RV Interesting and informative read, thank you for taking the time to write the article and for posting it.

RE: Towing with E450

Interesting thread. My Jamboree is just under 30ft in length says it will tow 5k. I don't trust what RV salesman say. I would contact the MFG of the vehicle for towing specs.

RE: NPS Senior Pass

Several years ago . I should say over tens years ago now, my wife and I went to Yosemite National Park. We were entering on the north gate on Tioga Pass, California State Route 120, anyway I had my Handicapped Placard laying on the dashboard of our P/U Truck. The Range gave me a form said to fill it out and put my CA. Handicapped Placard number and my CA. Drives License Number and sign it and she gave me a Inter-Agency Pass that was supposed to be good for life. I know it was $10.00, even if I have to buy another Senior Pass I will because $ 80.00 is a lot more reasonable than what it costs to belong to some of these camping clubs, Thousand trails, KOA, Passport America. Just my opinion. I guess maybe I should go and look at my Pass and make sure I still have it in the RV, i keep it with the registration card. I love to boondocks and paying $5.00 a night is cheap at twice that price.

RE: Last shot at a TC...

I *think* I've decided on a 25 foot travel trailer but went to my favorite (national park) campground this weekend and found out they have an 18 foot limit on trailers. So now I'm just (one more time) ruling out a TC option. I have a 2017 RAM 3500 Megacab shortbed 4x4 with Cummins and AISIN. SRW. Payload listed at 3950 lb. I am only interested in a quality, durable, four season brand - thinking Arctic Fox or Lance - though I'm open to others if they fit the need - have to be able to camp in the mountains in the winter for a weekend for skiing. FIgure the wet weight of my TC shouldn't be more than around 3200 lb, maybe only 3000. That doesn't leave tons of options. Are there any single slide, sleep 4-5 TCs in this weight and quality range that you'd recommend? When I was looking to buy my 2500 2016 Ram Laramie. I looked at every dealer in So Cal.I looked at Ford's Chevy's GMC's and Ram Trucks. (I switched from Ford to Ram because of the Cummins Engines, If I could have gotten a Cat in a Ford I would still be driving Ford, But I am Very Happy with what I bought and I am not ever going back) I started looking in June of 2015. I could not find what I wanted. I am not trying to Hijack your thread, but my suggestion is Buy what you want not what they have on their lot and have to get rid of. In Jan.2016 I ordered my Ram and with the options I wanted not what every dealer in So. Cal wanted me to buy off their lots. (I hate vehicles that are painted white) I kind of have to agree with Kayteg1 Sounds like "money is no object" so why don't you build one to your liking? Just remember it's what you want not what the salesperson wants to overcharge you with. Hope you find what you want good luck and enjoy the new 2017 Ram 3500 :B

RE: New FMCA/Verizon Unlimited Data Plan

I talked to FMCA Membership Services about this plan they said that they (FMCA and Verizon) were close to releasing a plan. So I guess it's a waiting game now.

RE: Anyone know what type of caulking this is?

It looks like the junk that an RV repair shop used on my bathroom fan several years ago. I would recommend that you get some Seka Flex 715 Look Here Camping World sells it.

RE: Replace tires?

A couple of years ago I had an inside dual blow out. The tires were 4 years old. We were on a trip on business. They say that you you should replace tires every 5 years well I am a believer in doing that. I am really thinking of getting new Tires for our RV in the next couple of weeks, the RV has been sitting for several years due to health problems. I don't want to get out in the desert or out on a highway and loose a tire again. I would replace them. Just my thoughts. Good Luck and if you buy this RV enjoy it.
