RE: tv just stopped in highway towing tt

If you are causing a traffic hazard and your roadside assistance can't get there before a tow truck contacted by Law Enforcement you have to get towed by who shows up. Save the receipt and in this case submit it to GM with the warranty repair. Some of the tow trucks that get called from AAA and other insurance companies may take a couple of hours. You can't leave a major Highway blocked like that just to save the person blocking it a tow charge. Wildcat

RE: Kia Sorento as tow vehicle

I find it interesting that when I looked on the Kia website for England My Kia Soul has a tow rating of 1300 kg (approx 2800 lbs) if the trailer has brakes. No tow rating on the US website even though the vehicle is the same. As for a Sorento as a Tow vehicle, it would probably do fine we had a Chrysler Pacifica with a 3.5l v6 awd and it towed our pop up fine. When we switched to a Ford explorer with a 4.6 l v8 we noticed a difference mainly in acceleration getting on freeways. If you pay attention to merging onto freeways you should be fine.

RE: new camper was hit today

Especially since the trailer is so new make sure that your insurance company doesn't try and use aftermarket or used parts. When the DW's car was hit I had an insurance company try and replace my nice rigid brand hitch with something sourced out of JC Whitney that was about half the cost. My body shop guy had never seen an adjuster try that before. Plus they tried to charge me part of teh cost f an exhaust system due to it being better than the one their client had smashed with their driveshaft when it fell off their truck. In MN that was illegal to charge betterment. Find a good repair shop and insist on new parts. Wildcat

RE: Park in the road? Get Hit! Duh...

Just because something is stopped blocking a traffic lane doesn't mean it is ok to hit it. I am speculating but the Police Officer who issued the ticket probably thought it was more than reasonable that the driver who struck the trailer should have been able to see it and avoid it. The citation needs to be able to be supported in court if the driver fights it and probably will. Especially if the following facts are present, Daytime straight road with nothing that reasonably would hinder the driver's vision and normal driving conditions. Should the driver of the RV be cited for blocking the roadway or worse depending on what their story is maybe yes. If it was an emergency or a breakdown than maybe not. Wildcat

RE: New Solar Panel

Another follow up+. This winter (and we had a long winter) I had the solar panel plugged into my old pickup and it sat on the dash. I didn't touch this truck from October to June and the battery was fully charged. I then took it with us camping. We had great weather and I left it on top of the front bunk end from Monday afternoon to Saturday morning. One battery lasted the entire 6 days. And that was using the water pump, cassette toilet, some lights and the roof vent fan some times and two bunk end fans running most nights. The fridge ran on propane along with the water heater for all 6 days. Yes the battery was new last year but it was a cheap fleet farm battery. Say what you will but I have never been able to run that many days of camping on one battery before. Wildcat
