RE: Jeep Toad w/Winch

One thing to consider is the weight on the front end. With the winch, baseplate and winch plate you could be putting on close to 200 lbs without the weight of an aftermarket bumper. Some of that could be eliminated with a bumber with all combined, if there is one available. A friend just bought a 2014 Rubicon and was going to put his winch off his old jeep on the new one. The winch plate alone weighed 65 lbs. He decided that with the winch, plate and baseplate it was more weight then he wanted on the front end.

RE: Need a chuckle? Thought I'd share....

Pill pockets have worked well for me.

RE: cleaning inside garage/toy hauler area

Dawn dish washing soap or Simple Green work well on grease. Squirt some on the spots, scrub with a push broom, them mop.

RE: Cal Am resorts

We have stayed at Val Vista for about a month for the last 10 years. It's clean, well maintained, MANY activities, and very nice people.

RE: Ideas for small bathroom sink

I saw a sink which was a metal bowl with a hole cut in the bottom for the drain. Something to consider. This would work with your shelf with a hole cut out.

RE: Easy rid of water spots

For waterspots that have dried, Jet-dry does a good job of getting rid of them.

RE: Turkey thru my windshields

Well, you won't get a turkey delivered any fresher than that. :B I'm glad everyone is ok.

RE: Potato Bag

DW made a bunch of them as well as tortilla warmers for Christmas presents. They work great. The potato and tortillas come out more moist.

RE: Jeep Liberty

Ask the dealer for the Owners Manual. Look for "Recreational Towing", or perhaps just "Towing", in the table of contents. There is perhaps a 99% chance that what the Book says is accurate. You can go to the Jeep website and download the owners manual, then check recreational towing.

RE: Results from Battery Tender Solar Maintainer

It's good that we have had lots of sun the last few weeks, that helps a lot. I hope it continues to work for you. Don't expect much from it for boondocking.

RE: Phone apps

RoadAhead is a good app, it gives you what's at the various exits along major routes.

RE: Generator quits after 2 min!

What is the fuel level in the MH? Won't run for long if it's below 1/4 of a tank.

RE: Generator quits after 2 min!

Check oil level, and if it has one, the altitude switch on it.

RE: Help On Towing Jeep

Grinding is normal for almost all years. No syncros in transfer case so it will protest a little when shifted.

RE: Solar users--What would you do differently?

I primarily do winter camping and it takes it's toll on the batteries with the heater pulling a lot. I started off with a 50 watt panel and 2 group 27 batteries. Not even close to a working setup. I upgraded to a total of 220 watts, 2 group 31 and 1 group 27 batteries (that's what would fit). Still not enough. I just got back from Quartzsite and even though we had great sun and I was pulling around 7 amps most of the day, my batteries were at 10.9 in the morning. We are VERY frugal with the electrical usage and still had problems. Another panel in the 120 watt range will be installed before next year. Over all I've been very disappointed with solar charging.

RE: Quartzsite vs Yuma, Az ???

Just got home from Q and as usual it's demise is greatly exaggerated. It seemed like more people were there but a few less vendors. Great weather this year!

RE: Bikes For Retired Parents......

I see a few people riding recumbents but IMO they sit so low that they would be harder for people to notice. Also, I would have an issue getting in and out of one, too close to the ground. As you can see from the responses, there is no single correct answer. Lots of different bikes to look and and TRY.

RE: Bikes For Retired Parents......

I'm 67 and ride a "comfort" bike 20-40 miles a week. The nice thing about a comfort bike over a beach cruiser is suspension. Mine has cushioning front forks and a "shock" in the seat tube, which makes for a little nicer ride. More speeds mean finding the right gear for easy riding. Ride a couple of bikes before you buy, not all will ride the same, you want something that doesn't take a lot of work just to get rolling. The easier the bike is to ride, the more likely it will get used.

RE: Quartzsite vs Yuma, Az ???

Go to Quartzsite and if you don't like it go to Yuma, they aren't far apart. For the last 5 years or so I've been hearing how Q is on it's last legs yet every year there are thousands of people there spending money. Is it as big as it has been? Probably not, but still big enough, and still fun.

RE: Ford truck repair facilties in Orange County, CA?

I take my Edge to HB Ford, but I don't think I would take the MH there. I've never seen a truck or MH there for service. My neighbor took his MH to Grody for tires and was happy with that.
