RE: Tips for merging

What are your tips for merging with traffic when the lane you're approaching is at a near-45 degree angle from your lane? For example, a highway on or off ramp. As you get close to merging, you have a huge blind spot. I think most posters have missed your point of being a 45 degree angle and you cannot see the merging traffic, correct? I have found that this is the best use of the Side Cameras. They have a very wide angle view and I can see anything that is on a merge path with my MH. Many people say the side cameras are useless, but I find they are very valuable for just this one reason. This is correct! I'm referring to the situations where the lane you want to merge into is smack in the middle of your blind spot because of the angle of the roads....roughly 45 degrees. As you can see, many on this site really don't care what you asked if it gives them an opportunity to get into a heated discussion. :R

RE: Hotspot Overage

There are different versions of adblock. The version installed is determined by the browser you are using when you access https://adblockplus.org/. Open https://adblockplus.org/ in your chrome browser and it should have a button that says "Install for Chrome".

RE: Please give Advice on a big decision! Long Post!

I would keep the class C. You're looking an older unit that has extensive rodent damage, will need new tires, plus the unknown problems. Keep what you got. I would do the same. Just too many unknown problems.

RE: Purchased Damaged (without knowledge) RV from Camping World

The tires will ALWAYS be dated older the motor home. In that date range, they may be the Michelin M/S that had a recall and will be replaced free by Michelin. Check that out.

RE: Overheating Toad!

I assume you have read and follow these guidelines: Recreational Towing Note: Put your climate control system in recirculated air mode to prevent exhaust fumes from entering the vehicle. See Climate Control (page 107). Follow these guidelines if you have a need for recreational (RV) towing. An example of recreational towing would be towing your vehicle behind a motorhome. We designed these guidelines to prevent damage to your transmission. You can tow your vehicle with all four wheels on the ground or with the front wheels off the ground by using a tow dolly. If you are using a tow dolly follow the instructions specified by the equipment provider. If you tow your vehicle with all four wheels on the ground: • Tow only in the forward direction. • Release the parking brake. Vehicles with Push Button Start 1. Start the vehicle by pressing the brake pedal, and then pressing the ENGINE START/STOP button until the vehicle starts. 2. Press the brake pedal and shift the transmission into position N. 3. Turn the vehicle off by pressing the ENGINE START/STOP button once. (Trip Summary appears in the left instrument cluster screen when the vehicle is off.) Note: You can remove the key fob from the vehicle while towing Vehicles with Ignition Key 1. Start the vehicle by pressing the brake pedal, and then turning the ignition key until the vehicle starts. 2. Press the brake pedal and shift the transmission into position N. 3. Turn the vehicle off by turning the ignition key past the accessory position. The key position is between the accessory and off positions. See Ignition Switch (page 127). (Trip Summary appears in the left instrument cluster screen when the vehicle is off.) Note: If your vehicle is equipped with an ignition key, you cannot remove the key from the ignition cylinder when the transmission is in position N and the vehicle is off. All Vehicles • Do not exceed 70 mph (113 km/h). • Place the transmission in position P, start the vehicle, and allow the engine to run for one minute at the beginning of each day (you may need to press the accelerator pedal in order to start the engine). After allowing the vehicle to run, place the transmission back into position N and the ignition in the off position. Note: A SHIFT TO PARK or TRANSMISSION NOT IN PARK message may appear in the information display when the transmission is in position N and the ignition is in the off position.

RE: Equalizer Jack Problem on Berkshire

On our unit I had similar problem I found the dealer repaired a wire in the plug at the control panel by pushing it in. I took it apart and fixed it properly. It sounds like you may have already check that though. Hey there. I believe you also posted on that 'other forum'. It was a wire in the plug at the control panel. Found it this morning. Thanks.

RE: Have no idea what I'm doing-help!

Keeping the heat OUT is the way to cool a RV. THe most effective things you can do is; 1. Park in the shade if possible. 2. Pick up some Reflectix at the home depot and put it in all the windows. This works wonders. You won't believe it till you try it. 3. Put solar shades on the 'outside' of the windows. The Reflectix is easiest. will do a great job and should bring the temp down into a comfortable range. I'm sure some others will chime in about it also,

Equalizer Jack Problem on Berkshire

I read pretty much all of the posts that I can on here and typically at least have an idea what to do when something goes wrong but this time I'm stuck. My Equalizer Jacks are not working. The problem is the keypad panel will not respond to any buttons being pushed. Lights will not light up when button pushed, although the lights will flash when ignition turned on. This started a few days ago and have already done much troubleshooting, both on my own and with phone support but maybe someone has had a similar issue. 1. Looked for fuses. Only those in the control box found. None blown. 2. Checked voltage at keypad. Voltage good. 3. Jumpered solenoid on pump motor. Motor runs. 4. Changed out keypad. Equalizer sent to me. 5. Changed out control box under floor. Equalizer sent to me. 6. Slides work fine BTW. Since I have already chased this with help from Equalizer I'm not sure if any of you guys can help but you never know. There is a lot of experience on here. Thanks Dan

RE: Radio Power Feed Question

I was thinking about installing a 2-way which would control the power to the radio either from the chassis battery or house battery Dave My Class A came standard with a switch like that.

RE: Mister for the awning?

We had them on our patio at home. Always having trouble with them clogging up and never knew which was the wind was going to blow. We got some misters that attach to the front of a fan for the RV. That has worked out great for us, 3 Nozzle Fan Misting http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/515NvmgHpkL.jpg

RE: Is this legit?

It's been posted here before. They also called me last year when I was selling mine on craigslist. They have many websites for RVs, motorcyles, classic cars, etc. THey take your fee ($200) and typically never hear from them again. There were a lot of complaints on the internet about them.

RE: Streaming TV in an RV using a cellular data plan

Anyone using Chromecast in their rig? If so, how? One phone as a hotspot. Second phone or tablet to start Chromecast. Interesting.. tell me more.. So second phone and chromecast join the hotspot network, and all is well? Dang.. why didnt i think of that??? Not much more to tell. Well I can also do it with one phone as hotspot and a laptop to start chromecast.
