RE: Gutter Extensions

If you really want to get the water away from the RV fasten a fishing line to a clothes pin that is clipped onto the gutter and move it away from the RV by fastening the other end to a can or rock on the ground. The water will run down the line.Why not just buy a giant umbrella and stand on the roof so no water gets on the rv at all.

RE: ARP Refrigerator Fire Safety Device

Joraz, is there an issue with your fridge that makes you think you may have a problem after nearly 20 years?I wonder if those driving the model T thought about seat belts the same way? How much money can you place on a safety feature that may or may not ever be needed?

RE: 5 star tune

OK, On some newer vehicles recently (2013 and 2014) the manuf. put a code in the PCM so that when a non-manuf. tune (read;aftermarket tune) the PCM will store that code and it is not eraseable, meaning it will be there for eternity! when you bring a vehicle in for driveline service they will scan for codes and if that is in there...bye bye warranty! Yes the tuner will save your stock tune, but the aftermarket tune has it`s own VIN. so when it doesn`t match the manuf. VIN the PCM flags it and saves the code. Now, once it`s out of warranty then you can do whatever you want! and that is what I would do. tune it once the warranty expires!I wonder if Mike from 5Star would post here about his?

RE: Link to butyl tape and butyl putty tape?

They are not the same and some RV parts joints can't even figure out the difference. I used the stuff that is black rubber like taffey. The white stuff seemed to not work as well and not last as long.

RE: What type of RV is best suited for a wheelchair?

Newmar will build wheel chair accessible for you.x2. A class a is about the only way to go with a wheelchair. ab Newmar probably makes the best unit out there now. Winny can make them but I hate their shower designs in which they usually just bend and caulk vinyl flooring to make a shower/bathroom. On that note, money will decide which way to go. A toy hauler is great to get you into a trailer but what then? How wide are the aisles? Can you get into the bathroom? Where do you travel while in the wheelchair? Class C is a non-starter IMO as the drop-down to the cab will prevent someone in a wheelchair from looking out the front window.

RE: Installing Car DVD stereo in 5th wheel, bypass needed?

On the pioneer unit, you will need to wire a toggle switch in the ground (brake) wire. Flip the toggle real quick to fool it into thinking the brake is on. Just did this to mine. **** the lawyers.

RE: Progressive Insurance

Thanks for the info. I won't use them but also because of the political views of the owner /person running the company. Why do you think they call it Progressive?Yet another highly educated american voter.

RE: Second or Even Third Generator Remote Switch

The remote looks nice but it is an autostart. I would like to start it manually from the dash which I can't do now but don't want autostart. Yes autostart but you can turn that component off and turn the gen on/off manually.Thanks Doc.

RE: External Speakers, do you really want them ?

I would like to personally shoot the folks that designed RV's with external speakers. You noise should not leave the confines of your camp site. If it does, you are invading my space. I would like find a portable EMP device so I can disable all the electronics on stupid people to think they can play their outside speakers and tv's without regard for their neighbors noise privacy. Invading your space? NOW, I've heard it all. Lord help the person that sneezes near you.Apparently common courtesy is something you haven't heard of either. Just as in an apartment building, I wouldn't want to hear your music.

RE: External Speakers, do you really want them ?

When we first got the trailer I would set the volume then actually walk away from it to ensure they are not loud enough for everyone around us to hear. Now we know what volume number to keep them at. :B we did this also. I know our volume and it is contained. I did the walk also :)The "walk" is not good enough. You need to go to your neighbors and ask them. I am very sensitive to sounds, particularly bass. Many think their garbage music is down enough but I can hear deep bass from a mile away. It bothers me and if I hear it, I will let you know. Be courteous, no outside speakers.

RE: "Updated" Demco Dolly Blew It Bigtime.!! "Updated"

You had some patience. I bought a master tow dolly to tow my first Town & Country. Towed it once for about 300 miles and couldn't stand it. Sold it and went 4 down with a lube pump and UTB. Best decision in a long time. On my second dodge with remco and utb with no issues at all.

RE: TST Monitor Not Show Pressure or Temp

We are pretty sure the sensors are working. When you take it off and put it back on it will display the pressure and temp. Turn the monitor off and back on, it won't display. Also, I unplugged the repeater thinking it might be hosed up but it didn't change anything.

TST Monitor Not Show Pressure or Temp

Have a strange issue with my TST system. The system cycles through all the tire positions but all but 3 are not showing air pressure or temp. Suspecting interference from a remote temperature gizmo, I removed it and took the batteries out. No change. When I got to the campground, I changed all the batteries on all my sensors, 10 in total. No change. Called TST, they had me take the monitor outside to a non-showing tire. Removed the pressure cap and immediately the monitor alarmed. Screwed it back on, and now it showed pressure. Now, no change. Still all but 3 tires still not showing pressure or temp. I just can't think of what would be causing this issue. TST says interference of some kind but I thought I eliminated the possible source with the temp. gizmos. Ideas? Thanks.

RE: Towing Honda Odyssey 4 wheels down

I had this info from earlier. Odyssey: trying to determine if i can flat tow my 2014 honda Resolved Question: trying to determine if i can flat tow my 2014 honda odyssey touring model behind my RV. I towed my 2010 5 speed with no issues - I know Honda is not going warranty any issues - I just want to know if it can be done. My friend tows his 2011 6 speed behind his RV with no problems Submitted: 9 months ago. Category: Honda Eric Expert: Eric replied 9 months ago. HI, Yes, you can tow it. It can be towed as a dinghy(flat towed), using the same procedures you used for the 2010 model Ask Your Own Honda Question Customer: replied 9 months ago. Just confirming you are aware that this is the 6 speed tranny vs 5 speed Expert: Eric replied 9 months ago. HI, Correct, the 2014 is a 6spd trans versus the 5spd for the 2010. The 2014 with 6spd trans can be dinghy towed. You use the same tow procedure as the 2010. There is no difference in the tow procedure between the 5 and 6spd transmission.
