RE: Refrigerator not working. Leaving for 3 week trip

Why not contact campground or someone in Ft Myers to see if they know anyone that would install a residential unit. You can find a 10 cu ft at Lowe's, etc for about $500. Much less than the new Domestic will cost you and bigger.

RE: EZpass help please

Look into the IPass from IL. You can order one by phone but it takes 2 weeks to get it. You get the discount no matter what state you're in. There are no monthly fees.IPass and EZ Pass work in all the northeastern states, but not in Texas yet

RE: How many use HAM vs C/B for rig to rig etc?

Ladies and Gents, But, this post is primarily for those who have experience with HAM radios, maybe use them from RV to RV while traveling and or, also my use them in say, Jeep to Jeep while venturing off road. My level of license is TECHNICIAN and, there are two levels higher. There's the problem. No one in the rv club I belong to has a ham license, nor do any of the people I used to off road with. However, the majority of the rv'ers and all the Jeepers had a CB. I use my uV-5r mainly for storm spotting.

RE: Never Assume !

Not sure how to say this, but if you assumed tires would hold air all winter, that's a really bad bad bad assumption. If you go by the book, you really can't assume they'll hold air for a day. Ideally you check the tires at the initiation of every drive and at every fuel stop... ...and maybe that seems extreme and I know a lot of folks don't do the every trip/every fuel up, but seriously after anything more than a month or two, you really need an 'official' pressure reading and several visual inspections in between. Not trying to start anything, but do you do the same for your daily driver? If not, how are those tires different?

RE: Winnebago Ad?

Discovered the ads are only on my Android tablet, not on my windows 7 desktop. Any one have any ideas?

RE: Winnebago Ad?

If I use Woodall's, I get the Winnebago ads. If I use rv.net, I don't. This just started yesterday.

RE: Camping World sells cheap Junk.....

Seriously SCV... blow it out your @@@@@@.... it's not that I can't get more screws...it is simply the fact that the MFG is to cheap to include enough screws to securely fasten their product to the wall...AT LEAST 4 would have been nice.... In my past experiences in 59 + years is that most MFG always had EXTRA hardware in them.. I see whats wrong you are from Cali..... you guys are like a bowl of Granola....... what isn't fruits or nuts...is flakes... Well, since you just said the MFG screwed up, why are you blaming Camping World? You must have lead a sheltered life if this is the first time you've had a problem with a purchase. I know I've had plenty in over 75 years.

RE: What's a good semi-smart phone?

Guess I should have been a little more specific in my question. DW wants a smart phone, but neither of us are smart phone savvy. And yes we are looking for both a phone and plan recommendations. Just really need the basics; camera, the web, gas buddy, raindar, maps and a few assorted other apps. No contract and a reasonable price with a broad network coverage. She'd probably do some texting and email, but heavy usage of these would be on the MacBook. Thanks for all the great replies. Buy an unlocked phone ( I bought a motorola moto g at Best Buy), buy the Tracfone SIM card for about $9.00 and transfer your existing tracfone minutes, etc. over to the new phone. The moto g uses the AT&T network and i haven't had any coverage problems. For $50.00 you can get 1,000 minutes talk, 2,000 text, and 500MB data good for 90 days or less than $17.00 a month. As a side note, the moto g came with android 4. As soon as I started it, it upgraded itself to android 5, and just recently upgraded to android 6 marshmallow. Also, motorola has a program that will transfer all your info, contacts, etc from your old phone.

RE: New Flooring Peel and Stick Tiles

Did it in my old '94 Adventurer. Put down a layer of 1/8" plywood, used a sealer for adhesive tiles, then put down the tiles. Had no problem with tile moving or lifting. Just make sure surface is perfectly clean.

Just moved from a 5" Tom Tom to using TomTom mobile go on my 10" Lenovo tablet. What a difference in view ability. TomTom mobile downloads full map so you don't need wifi or data usage.

RE: 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

I would strongly advise you not to tow a 2014 to 2016 Jeep Cherokee. There have been significant safety issues. There are over 50 folks who are on our list that have had the problem of these vehicles swaying violently when you happen to hit the right spot on the road. Your motor home will feel like it is coming apart and it maybe. Several of us have had damage to ours from these events. Fait Chrysler has now acknowledged the problem and are supposedly working on a solution by adding a wiring harness to provide power to the electronic steering when towing. For those who have not traded theirs (because of this and other problems), may now have hope that they can tow these vehicles without this awful problem. Please be very careful and make sure you talk to your dealer about getting the information on the harness. if anyone else is towing these Cherokees, please do ask for this wiring harness so MAYBE you will not have to go through all the problems some of us have had. You can read the article in the Family Motor Coach Magazine in February that details these problems. For those that have not had the problem or believe that there is hot a problem, this is proof there is one! Take care. He's asking about a GRAND, totally different.

RE: Lots of Fiat 500 toads

Hate to say it, very bad reviews by Consumer Reports. But neat car. I might even try one out if I got a good deal. Last I checked, they weren't too impressed with one of the best toads available, a Jeep Wrangler.

RE: Got a price on an install comments...

The baseplate should take about 2 hours to install according to blue ox. Since it's a plug in wiring harness, I would think it could be done in 2 hours or less.Can't understand why they would need 2 days. I have 2 quotes to install a demco baseplate on an 05 Jeep Liberty, one is $185, other is $150.

RE: Philadelphia/Wilmington,DE area

Any recommendations for a campground in the Philly area? Will be visiting SIL in Hockessin this Sept. Check out the KOA in West Chester PA... Just north of Hockessin.... Been there several times. Cat gets car (motorhome) sick on the roads in. Was looking for something else, maybe a little south of Wilmington. We'll be coming from Ithaca, NY.
