RE: TomTom Horrible Routing

Has anyone else tried using their TomTom with and without IQ Routes enabled? My Go Live 1535TM has IQ routes and I've never had a problem. Had it for several years and wouldn't switch to anything lse. About a year ago got the itch for something new so I bought a Garmin, forget which model. Tried the 2 side by side. The TomTom was more accurate and gave me traffic info while the Garmiin could not find any traffic info. Returned the Garmin immediately. Plus the TomTom updates info at least weekly.

RE: How many of you do this?

You totally missed the point. Do you really think he expected that to happen? Of course not. That's why it's called an accident. It's unexpected. Do you really believe that you personally are immune to the unexpected? This kind of thing happens more than you might think. I've had a nozzle spit out a bit of gas when just taking it off the pump on more than one occasion. If you bothered to read the post I quoted they were inferring that this NEVER happens, "show me one post" they said. We have the internet, it took SECONDS to find that article. Ignorance is a choice in the world we live in. I did read the post. I also have had gas spit out at times. However, the distance between the pump and my refrig is at least 10 feet and opposite side of MH. That's why I'm confident that in the open, the chances of vapors AT the refrig will not reach the required 1.2% concentration to ignite.

RE: How many of you do this?

Show me ONE TIME where this caused a fire. http://www.houmatoday.com/article/20100325/ARTICLES/100329598 Most likely there are more. Ignorance is bliss I guess... Folks are throwing around made up statistics to justify leaving the propane on in gas station. Fine, you do that. Statistically very few kids get permanent brain damage from falling off a bike without a helmet. Would you let you kids ride without helmets? the blaze started as he prepared to fill up the Roadtrek recreational vehicle and the nozzle spewed gasoline, igniting when it came into contact with a pilot light on the RV. Aside from doing that, how much gas do you think you need to reach the 1.2% vapor concentration at the refrig to cause ignition?

How hard to install baseplate on 05 Liberty?

Can anyone tell me how hard it would be to install a Demco baseplate on an 05 Jeep Liberty. Easy enough to do myself or should I pay the $350 to have it done?

RE: Best route from Chicago area to Assateague Island Maryland

Thanks for the tips! After speaking w/dh, looks like we will be getting off the road somewhere near Pittsburgh and looking for a quick shut eye at a Wal-mart or something. Any problems crossing the Bay Bridge with a trailer? In the 2 previous seasons that we've owned our trailer we have traveled west,wide open spaces. Going east seems to require a bit more careful planning. Just curious, why would you be crossing the Bay Bridge? Are you going to Virginia first?

RE: [OP Update] Windows 8.1 compared to Win7 - user experience

Really don't understand why everyone hates Win 8.1. Upgraded 15 mostly computer illiterate users from Win 7 Pro to Win 8.1 and they never noticed the difference Retained their own personalized desktop, same icons, same start screen. Only difference was a little more stable than Win 7.They also got new 23" Lenovo all-in one pc's

RE: illinois tax issue on rv trade in for car?

Hi guys, I live in illinois and just traded my rv for a subaru. I was shocked when the dealer told me that they cannot offer me a tax break on the value of the rv. I'm not so sure I believe them and cant find any info online. Does anyone on here know the state law on trading rv's for autos? Should I have got my tax savings? Thanks Found this on searching IDR website, from form ST 566: Describe the trade-in, if any If you did not claim a qualified trade in, skip this section and go to Section 5. If you claimed a qualified trade in, enter the type of item traded in (e.g., automobile, truck, airplane, boat, trailer). Next, enter the appropriate identification number, year, make, body style, and model of the trade in. What is a qualified trade-in? A qualified trade in is an item that the purchaser gives you to reduce the selling price (in part or in full) of the item sold; that you are allowed to subtract from the selling price; and that you are in the business of selling. You are “in the business of selling” a particular kind of item if you hold yourself out to the public as being engaged in (or habitually engage in) selling such items. Example: You may claim the trade in of a boat on an auto if you are in the business of selling both boats and autos. However, you may not claim the trade in of a boat on an auto if you are in the business of selling only autos.

RE: Bypassing Chicago

On our way to Muskegon (many, many, many times!) we take IH-57 and then at Gilmer, IL we travel east on Highway 24. Then we take IH-65 north to IH-80/90. Then up north to Michigan. Do not like 57 to 80 because there are tolls and many lanes changes and trucks, trucks, trucks. We tried to take the Lincoln Highway (30) once and it was stop and go, stop and go. Safe Travels! Only toll is where 80 & 294 meet. Max toll would be $4.20 which is for large truck

RE: tow bar base plate

I would think it's highly unlikely since the wrangler has frame rails and the cherokee doesn't.

RE: RV park near Chicago

Big Rock Forest Preserve campground was recently upgraded and is supposed to be very nice - have not been there myself. It is 15 miles from Elburn where you can catch a Metra train. Nice campground, water and electric. You need a long water hose. Huge sites.

RE: Suggest brake system for 2015 Wrangler Unlimited

I appreciate the responses (keep 'em coming!). Some feedback: ReadyBrake/ReadyBrute -- Quite interesting, but every towing/RV shop I've contacted has either refused to install this, or wants huge $$ and won't warranty the work. They say it's horribly difficult to install and seems impossible to have reliable performance...different braking force when turning, or wheel locking, or no braking, etc. Sliding the ready brake into your receiver is horribly difficult? It took me longer to route the cable back to the brake pedal. Been towing my 02 Jeep TJ for over 30,000 miles with no problem. Have the ready brake, Roadmaster all terrain towbar connected to my Jeep custom steel bumper. In the process of having Demco baseplate and a cable for the ready brake installed on wife's 05 Liberty so we can tow that also.

Previously owned a Garmin Nuvi 680. It served us well on a cross country trip in 2008. No longer working and we need to purchase a new GPS for another long trip to Alaska and would like some imput as to which GPS for RV's people recommend. We are considering the Garmin 760LMT or one from Rand McNally. We have a 40 foot diesel pusher. NOT TOMTOM! Why not?????? Had a Tom Tom 1535 and a Garmin Nuvi side by side in my Jeep. Tom Tom traffic was better. directions more accurate, and the Tom Tom updates info weekly. After a week got rid of the Garmin.

RE: watkins glenn nascar race

There's a nice RV park at the bottom of the lake! Sorry I can't recall its name, but we found it in the Trailer Life book. Clute Park

RE: Update on Nashville Officer killed by Motorhome

All they need to do is revoke his driver's license to get him off the road and find him guilty of careless driving. No need for jail time. Set probation to insure he doesn't get behind the wheel again and then let the civil courts determine the financial punishment and restitution for the officer's family. Do you have any idea how many people with revoked/suspended licenses are on the road? Unless they commit another offense, you'll never know if they have a license or not. Revocation/suspension does nothing to keep them off the road.
