RE: GPS specific for RV's

I purchased a new Garmin RV 760 a short time back and I find it the most user unfriendly GPS ever. All I ever ask of it is to take me from point A to point B the fastest way. Sometimes it wants to take me on a route I do not want and it's nearly impossible to make a quick/easy change to the route. My old TomTom was so much easier to use, but lacked a few features the new Garmin has. I think when I get home I'll test out one of the new TomTom units that has more features than my old one.

RE: Levelers Need Help Retracting

Extend the rams as far as possible. Wipe the rams down with ATF. With the rams wet with ATF try to retract the rams. It might take 2 or 3 times wetting the rams and retracting to get them to operate. It's a easy try to get them working.

RE: Pre-fill water in blackwater tank?

I have always done a pre-fill. After dumping I fill the bowl to the top 3 times as a measure for pre-fill. And still use plenty of water with each flush of solids. When I am home for at least 4 weeks I fill the tank about 3/4 full with water and add a cup of Rid-X, then just let it stand till the next trip out.

User friendly GPS

I recently purchased a Garmin RV 760 GPS and find it to be the most unfriendly GPS I have ever used, this includes the Base Camp program that's suppose to make it easy. I'm sending it back. Big question is what brand and model do you have that you consider user friendly to use? I guess it's not all that important to me to have it RV rated. I have an old TomTom that I always thought was very easy to use along with the program to program it with a computer. But the TomTom lacks in defining lanes and lane usage. I'm 72 years old and maybe a little slow on my learning curve, I know this alone doesn't help. I'm not looking for any comments from those defending the RV 760, I've made up my mine it's not for me. Thanks

RE: Garmin Basecamp

I just bought a Garmin RV 760, it and basecamp have to be the worst designed GPS I ever laid my hands on. Of course I'm 72 years old and nothing comes easy these days. I don't have the time to find a replacement right now, but soon as I get home someone can have it for cheap on Ebay and I'll find something more user friendly.

RE: BRIGHTON, MICHIGAN WEIGH STATION

Check with area gravel pits and scrap yards.

RE: Anyone using this battery disconnect switch in their TOAD?

It's not good on a vehicle that needs to have a full constance disconnect when being towed (such as the Ford Focus) even a slight momentary connection at the switch can cause issues. And bouncing/pot holes on the road this switch will close at times making a short term connection.

RE: Red Squirrel or Chip Monk

If you live within the city limits a gun can be trouble. But a nice pellet gun often does the trick and is quite.

RE: What is an exceptable DOT date code for new tires??

Bought mine through the FMCA plan and the tires were 9 weeks old when installed. I was told by my tire dealer that most times the tires bought with the FMCA plan are newer tires than buying off the shelve. My dealer did not carry my size and had to order. It was a 3 day wait.

RE: Help with Garmin RV 760lmt GPS

You can use 'voice command' and just say the new way point. The GPS will ask if you want it added to the current destination or set as a new destination. Really quite easy. It would be best to read the manual, that is what they are for. Lots of features you can miss if not. You are counting on information from people here who have taken the time to read the manual when you have not. This is why I ask here as I have read and re-read the manual but don't really find what I think answers my question on how to do what I want to do in a simple way. I think I may return the 760 as it appears to offer less than my old TomTom.

Help with Garmin RV 760lmt GPS

Just bought the Garmin RV 760lmt. I'm not good at reading manuals, hands on works better. I can get the 760 to plan a route ok, but mid way in the route I want to take a a different road than the one Garmin planned and I can't figure out how to make the change. Can anyone give me a helping hand or point me to a webpage that explains it in simple terms or maybe go PM to get me going?

Which GPS

I have a old Tom-Tom now, but wishing for something with a little larger screen. As the old eyes are not as good as they use to be I'm hoping the larger screen would help. I travel via Motorhome so I would like something that can be easily moved from it to the toad. My big concern is ease of using, not confusing to enter data. So what's out there in a GPS that might fill my needs??

RE: State Park permits - is there a better way?

I was checking reservations at one of our favorite state parks a couple weeks ago. The gal said the daily rate had gone up $3 this year and next year the entry permit fee was going up $3, but still electric only sites. Several private campgrounds in the same area for less money with full hookups, daily games and activity's for the kids.

RE: Grand Haven Michigan State Park IMPOSSIBLE to Reserve

I think most all of the more popular State parks in Michigan are this way. Algonac state park on the east side of the state is near impossible to reserve more 5 days in a row. However in that park there are a number of non-reserve-able sites that can work. But you have to take a chance and go there ready to camp and then be lucky enough one is open. If your lucky you can stay the 15 days.

RE: How private are those bathroom/bedroom slides?

I think about sound more than I do someone seeing through a crack. A large group of us were sitting outside our motorhome one time and I went in to use the bathroom. Wow one of those big large loud farts came out. When I went back out one of the group said you really had some gas didn't you and everyone laughed.
