RE: RV.net slammer getting more creative

I see threads now and then eluding to spam on this forum, but honestly, the mods get to them before I ever see them and I check the forum two or three times a day (yeah, I know I need a life). Good work mods. No kidding. I'm on at least once a day, and the only "spam" I can recall recently has been someone posting an RV for sale, almost always a newbie. MODS =must= be doing a good job. :-) Lyle set your alarm to get up earlier. bumpy Now Bump, you know that isn't going to happen. Whats an alarm???? :)

RE: internet access on the road

I really think that you have the best internet connection device now. Thats all we use and it works well and is very reliable. 4G is the norm and now and then 3G but still very useable. A smartphone can give same results when tethered but you lose the voice communication while tethered and in use. Couple that with free wifi in a lot of businesses (McDonalds etc) should give you the adequate coverage you need. Verizon is considered the best as to coverage areas. Now and then another carrier will be available where Verizon isn;t but..........

RE: Maint./Repair $$ 10yr old DP

I have a Fleetwood Expedition. Its a 2001 Model. DP with Cummin's engine and Allison Tranny. We have fulltimed in that same MH for over 11 years and have to say, for about the first 10 years it was really maintenance free except for PM. Trouble free miles could be expected every time I pulled the jacks up. For the last couple years, things are starting to show wear. Yeah, the diesel will last perhaps 300,000 miles. But all those extra pieces that are attached to the engine are wearing out. The fan fell off. Replacement for it and belts and hoses $2,930.00. Plus a wrecker tow for 7 miles. Thank goodness for Coachnet. The fuel pump failed, this time 90 miles on a lowboy, again, thanks Coachnet, but the simple replacement of a fuel pump? $560.00. But...I wouldn't trade the ride and quietness of travel for anything else. I have no plans to trade, its still a very reliable MH.

RE: What Dish Are You Using For Satellite TV

For the same service you are interested in, I use an 18" round dish from Direct.

RE: The scammers will try anything....

Advertised my Suzuki Base Plate on Craigs list. Second later I get an email stating that its good as sold. They will arrange to have their mover pick it us. They will send a cashiers check for $20 more than I was asking. I really don't know how that scam works when obviously the cashiers check is a fraud and they really don't want my base plate (probably don't even know what that is). I suppose they will at some point in the transaction tell me that they will also make the check of for some extra money that I'm suppose to then FedX or send back to them.

RE: Driverless Cars

I can't see a need at all for them but I'm sure I've been the victim of several of these vehicles in recent history. You just have to alert and dodge them :)

RE: Roadside assistance?

Coach Net is by far the most reliable and dependable and professional service by far. The do a much better job of screening the available wrecker services available in the area. They send a lowboy wrecker 90 miles to get me to a repair facility and had an appointment set for my arrival.

My red Trans Am. Dam, I miss that car.

RE: Towing a car

I'm not a part of the weight police so I won't go there. You said you did your homework so thats all that matters. As for reliable towing, I've used the Blue Ox towbar for three different MH's and 4 different toads. It has been PM'ed at Quartzsite about 4 years ago and has performed flawlessly for over 10 fulltimeing years. I also use the Blue Ox base Plates. They are well engineered for each vehicle and either invisible or nearly invisible when not towing. There are some that are well respected baseplates that look like a snow plow mount. Not attractive on your car at all. I also use the Brake Buddy for all those different MH's and tow cars. Again, flawless performance. If I had it to do over, I'd probably chose a different braking system because they have come a long way from the 12 year old unit it have....but it still works, so why spend needless money.

RE: Pocket Hose

The pocket hose is such a great idea but it does fall short for durability as others have attested to. Use it to spray and don't every let it set with pressure on it and no flow.

RE: Water regulator question. 35 or 45 or max PSI?

Mine is adjustable and I keep it set for 35 lbs. I did have it set for 50 psi and enjoyed the added pressure but my 10 gal water heater couldn't provide that luxury nearly long enough. At 35 psi, I still get adequate water pressure and a longer shower.

RE: Towing a car

Need more information on your Jeep. Heres an excerpt from the 2014 Guide to Dingy Towing provided by www.motorhome.com. "Only 4WD vehicles equipped with Quadra-Trac II (V-6 models) and Quadra-Drive II systems (V-8 models) are towable." So your Grand Cherokee has to meet that requirement. Going forward: if it does, you can tow it four down. If not, it doesn't even show the tow dolly option, that means a trailer.

RE: Finally got my black tank sensor to "e"

You do know that tank level indicators were developed by an evil mind. You can spend countless number of hours that you could have spent getting a wiggly worm on a barbed hook, trying to keep them working. Forget the gauge and just keep track of the days use on the calender and when you get to the magic day you know you have to dump. Been doing that, along with probably the majority of other RVers, for over 10 years of fulltiming.

RE: Amazing things some folks do

I use the FloJet for my sewer hookups. It requires a fresh water hose and a "sludge" hose to dump. The sludge hose is a 1" ones and has no end connectors on it so it can't be used for any other purpose. I use a grey fresh water hose with backflow prevention on it and it dedicated to that task. My white hose is for fresh water hookup only. Gloves? I gave up on them. Your going to have to wash your hands with or without gloves so why bother.

RE: Slanted Driveway

Ask the dealer to have someone tow it to your location and give it a try. Obviously you want to assure them that its a done deal if it will ramp up your driveway. I'm betting they will oblige.

RE: Kohler generator racing

Not familiar with a Kohler generator but: My Onan never does go to idle. It has to rev to meet the load. Just a knee jerk evaluation here but: when your first start it, it will probably be under a load just supplying power to the converter which would be charging your batteries. By idle down, has it always acted this way or is it something new that it has developed? Or is it a new generator experience to you?

RE: Is the 45' Newell quad slide a 4x4 Off-Roader RV ?

8x10 or 10x8, its going to be a real shock at the end of 7 years and tire shopping. :)

RE: Why do we need such a big windshield???

I'm sure its just cosmetics. They look better with larger windshields.

RE: Coach batteries

From what you described, 2 - 6 volt batteries would be more than adequate for your needs. Unless by chance you have an all electric refrigerator??? Having said that, 4 - 6 volt batteries would be more than adequate...that is what the majority of MH's have.
