RE: 2015 Thor Challenger Residential Refer

Your assessment is probably accurate but, your not considering the weak part of the equasion...that being the number of batteries. Two six volt batteries would indeed be very marginal in providing the storage needs of that frig and the other dry camping items, lights, tv satellite etc. If the owner doubles the battery capacity, then he would be in a better position to run the frig off of battery power.

RE: Roadside Assistance - VAS

I don't know what VAS is either but lets get a bunch to join so we can get a comparison. Or just stay with the tried and true Coach Net.

RE: One Disadvantage of a DP

And with the gassers, you have to back your way onto the interstate to prevent front end damage. Ones six and the other is a half a dozen.

RE: Bugged By Those Crazy Tiny Terminal Block Screws?

WiHa makes some of the finest small tools today. I particularly like the WiHa allen type screwdrivers. Even the smallest size allen, remains sharp and will not screw up (sorry, bad pun) the smallest allens.

RE: maybe a dumb question

The acquiring Apps for your phone is actually very simple once you have actually done it the first time. The 14 year old suggestion is really a good one. Or anyone you know that has a smartphone. Doesn't have to be Android, the process is much the same. The explanation above is very good, but like said, you have to speak the language to really follow all the instructions. Actually another easy way to learn about your Android is You Tube. Try this url for an easy how to on downloading apps: How to Learn To Download Apps.

RE: pusher squealing belt

Suggest you recheck the tension on the new belts. Just because they are new doesn't mean that they won't squeal just like old ones if they are slippin.

RE: Black tank chemicals, Happy Campers, TST, Aqua Kem ???

Suggest you at least try going without any chemicals. We have fulltimed for over 10 years and never, NEVER use any chemicals. We just hated the port-a-potty chemical smell. We have no problem at all with odors. Just make sure all the traps are in place and working.

RE: K&N Air Filter

If you take 42837's feed back further and google K&N filter comparisons testing you will find that it fails in every comparison test you find. Not only fails, but is at or near the bottom of the list in every case. I don't understand it, the oily filter should stop dust and dirt better than a dry filter, but it doesn't.

RE: Broken Storage Door Latches

If your unit is like mine on a 2001 Fleetwood Expedition, the two screws do indeed have nuts on them holding them in place. To replace them, the door has to be disassembled. OR: Cut a small 5" square piece of the inner panel out at the latch and then you can easily get to the two nuts and remove the unit and replace. Then go to the dollar store and buy a plastic plate and cut out a square panel to go over the hole and four small self taping screws to hold in place. Looks like it belongs there and is very neat. I've had to replace of the latches on my RV.

RE: How to calibrate tank level panel leds

Tank level indicators were designed by an evil mind. EVIL. I haven't looked at our indicators for over 10 years of fulltiming. I just have a mental note as to how many days its been since I dumped. One can spend countless hours in trying to make them work, much less work accurately.

RE: Dash holder for smart phone

I do the same thing, smartphone is always up to date and accurate. I found a rubber pad at Best Buy for $4.99 in a gadget table that is just perfect. It has a sticky back like the pads to put on your dash and lay the phone or sunglassses on but it also has a 1" sides to it that has a slot in it for your smartphone to sit into and keep it on its side facing you just like a GPS screen. Nice thing about it is you can move it easily from vehicle to vehicle and the smartphone fits in it with any case you may have on your phone.

RE: Roadside Assistance programs

Any road side assistance program depends on the wrecker service(s) available in any given area. Sometimes they are less than adequate. But I really believe that CoachNet does a better job of screening the available services. I've used CoachNet twice, once was a 90 mile tow to a Freightliner facility where they had an appointment made for me as soon as I arrived. The second time, only a 7 mile tow but again the facility took care of my needs as soon as I arrived. I wouldn't consider any other RS Assistance program.

RE: Anyone have experience in retainin salvage vehicles?

I had a wreck in a Ford Expedition and its book was only $1700.00. They paid me the 1700.00 and then sold it back to me for $400. I repaired it, including an overall new paint job for $1100.00. So I made a couple hundred on the deal. And a like new vehicle.

RE: Aming Direct TV satlitte Dish

Two simple suggestions: 1. Walk around the campground and find someone with a DirectTV dish on a tripod. Tell them you are new to the satellite experience and would they mind showing you how to do it? 99 our of a 100 would be happy to show you how smart they are and walk you thru the process. 2. Go to YouTube.com and search DirectTV Dish Setup. You will find plenty of people showing you how smart they are and walk you thru the process. Either is much better than anything you will read about.

RE: What do you call these things?

I think the proper name is "door do-hinkies".

RE: Little orange cones

Soccer coaches use some orange soccer disc's instead of cones. They are about the size of a dinner plate with a large hole in the middle. A dozen will stack to a height of an couple inches. You can use them to mark the arc you need to back up to get into your site perfectly. And you can run over them without hurting them. Walmart has them as well as other similar stores. Cheap too.

RE: Putting carpeting under mattress

I can't see how any carpet under the mattress will add any more sound deadening than the mattress. But it certainly will keep the mattress from sliding around in transit.

RE: But officer the spare is flat....

I'm just curios as to how he got it loaded? I'd like to see the unloading.

RE: Using a 2014 GMC Sierra in dinghy towing

Use an aux cig lighter with two alligator clips to power the braking system. Just clamp onto the battery when you disconnect the main cable. Of course, you want an inline fuse on that setup for protection.

RE: Who caught what

You do know that the first lier here doesn't stand a chance. Mine was an 18" bugle mouthed bass. :)
