RE: Having problem with ramps hitting car frame

Our Demco Kar Kaddy manual states that the hitch should be around 18 inches from the ground for best performance. I had to use a straight hitch to provide the right height. Straight hitches are not easy to find. Read your manual and see what height they recommend your hitch be from the ground.

RE: Tow dolly instructions

Depends on the type and make of dolly and there are different approaches to whether or not the steering gear is free or locked. Who makes the dolly? Does the type of dolly have a turntable or swivel plate that allows the lower dolly to turn underneath the wheel platform? Or is it have the type of dolly in which the cars wheels sit directly on the dolly that does not have a moving swivel plate or turntable? With a swivel plate or turntable the wheels are to be locked as the turn table allows the car to track through a turn. On the type of dolly without a swivel plate or turntable, the wheels in the car must be able to turn and track throughout a turn and thus must be free and not locked. Arguments can be made in favor of both approaches or types of dolly configuration. I went the turntable/swivel pate route and thus I lock mine with an American Car Dolly. I always put the car in park and use a safety chain in addition to tire straps X2 We have a Demco Kar Kaddy with the turning base. We put our car in Park and lock the steering wheel the tow dolly does the rest.

RE: acceptable tire age

Agree with all above! Bought a tow dolly last year. Was getting ready for a 3000 mile road trip and had five year old tires that looked new. I changed them out plus a spare.

RE: Tow dolly

We have a Demco Kar Kaddy. It is a great product. We use it to tow different front wheel drive cars. That is the beauty of the tow dolly. The Kar Kaddy makes using a tow dolly as easy as possible. If I had only one vehicle, to tow, then I would consider towing four down but for now it is great to have the flexibility.

RE: 303 protectant

303 is great stuff. I use it in addition to wax. It is great on tires, dashboard, vinyl graphics, boat covers etc... I buy a gallon a year and use it on all of our vehicles, boats.

RE: LP detector goes off... Need help finding leak or source

I had our detector go off and was driving me crazy. Finally realized that my house batteries were starting to go and were omitting gas into the house. Put new house batteries in and the detector is now silent.

RE: class a with a rubber, fiberglas or aluminum roof

I would look for a fiberglass or aluminum roof for sure. Had a rubber roof on our first class c and made sure to get a fiberglass roof on our recent class c MH.

RE: Best brand & type of tire for a tow dolly?

I put a new set of Gladiator tires on my Demco Kar Kaddy last year at the recommendation of our family owned tire company. They usually have the best value tires on hand for the very large customer base. I am very pleased after our round trip to the keys last year and useage so far this year. 5,000 miles so far and pleased with their performance.

RE: Do you launch a boat with your Class C?

We have a 26 foot class c and pull and have been launching our 17 bass boat for many years. Never had a problem launching our boat. The long overhang actually works very well in most situations especially in low water times. We have a backup camera as well as being able to see out of the back window in our Aspect 26A makes it fairly easy with our size MH. We usually know our destination and water access ramp so there are no surprises when taking our boat along. Some persons mention a front hitch for easier access to tight boat launch ramps which is a great idea to be ready for any situation just not something Iwe have seen a need to do with our size and style MH. We usually plan to where we are going and check out the ramp ahead of time. Now with google maps you can actually see the ramp access point and see if it is problematic for your rig. We have learned to make sure we can dock our boat so that when we launch the boat we can set up the MH for the duration of our stay. Good luck!

RE: Do you use your rig to sight see/explore when camping?

We have an Aspect 26a and also tow a bass boat on certain trips. Our MH is fine for sightseeing but we realized that in some trip situations we would like to have access to our car or daughters car who also travel with us in an RV. We would up getting a DEMCO two dolly. We have many more options now. When we go to the lake for fishing we know we want to be on the water and if we absolutely need to go out we will us the MH. When we use the MH for a family trip we will pull our car. You will love the convenience of just pulling off the road and never having to get out for setup in a class a or c. Good luck with your decision.

RE: 1156 bulbs or not

We switched out all of our incandescent bulbs with LED's two years ago and they are great. We do a lot boon-docking in the spring and they use much less power than the incandescent bulbs. I got them from Amazon. They are gold star led lights. I purchased an eight pack and reordered the rest after checking them out. Very happy with the upgrade.

RE: Hookups at home

Yes. Have our MH plugged into a 20 amp outlet. Just can't run the AC. Have not had many visitors where we needed the room but it is certainly a viable option.

RE: DC switch for wall sconce

Thank you everyone for your information. I was able to find a replacement switch at jameco.com. Same switch, same company for $1.75 each plus shipping and handling. Much better than $24.00 for each switch. These lights never did work correctly and when they did they were very hot. Probably the heat affected the switches. I have switched the lights to LED to prevent the heat. Thanks again for the info on using an ac switch for this low voltage application. I will let you know how the replacement install works out.

DC switch for wall sconce

After years of looking at my non working wall sconces I decided to check them out. The switches are not working. I bye- passed the switch and the lights work fine. I have looked on line for the switch which is judo but they want me to send the switchs along with $24.00 each for replacement. The switch is a push button 14 dvc 4 amp switch. Anyone know is I can use an AC switch in its place or where I can get a replacement switch that is less pricey. If not does anyone know of a vendor that sells rv 12 volt wall sconces. I have checked a few sites out but have not had much luck yet.
