RE: Exhaust brake with Cruise Control on ??

I just noticed yesterday that with my cruise control on, the exhaust brake doesn't work. As soon as I clicked the cruise off, the exhaust brake light came on , and I could feel the exhaust brake kick in. Is this typical?? I have an 04 Revolution on a Freightliner Chassis. Thanks BrianBoy I wish mine worked that way. With cruise on as soon as the RV accelerates a bit going down the hill, the exhaust brake comes on and I have to reset the cruise to get organized again.

RE: What would you do?

You created this problem over a lengthy time period so you won't change it overnight. But...you can practice "putting your foot down" every chance you get and once you make a call, stick by it. Your in control of the situation.

RE: Very poor customer service (rant)

I think we would all like to live in the perfect world where you could set your watch by any event. But if you work or have worked for a company over the years, you know that sometimes things happen and the best laid plan is foiled by the unexpected. Learn to monitor your blood pressure and don't let the small things bother you.

RE: oil leak

Kind of a "how high is up?" question.

RE: surge protectors

I've used one for over 11 years fulltiming. I have no idea if its necessary or not. If it did its job, I never knew it. Perhaps I need new underwear?

RE: Warning Triangles

I dont' have the triangles but: On a breakdown on and interstate, I used the orange jack blocks or wheel blocks to warn that I was disabled. I just made a trail of the blocks standing on their edge and they proved to be very visible.

RE: Towing a Chevy Equinox

TRust me....if you don't pull the fuse, the battery will run down very quickly. Go ahead and ask me how I know that? I did as others, a dedicated line from the battery to the Brake Buddy. No problems now.

RE: Electrical cable issues

First of all, check your MH's fuses. Then check for voltage on the receptacle on your MH to insure that each pin is hot when it should be. Then test the connections on the toad to insure that the proper lamp is lit at the proper time.

RE: Dinghy front tire wear

Don't know about your flat spots but I do get a bit of extra wear on the outside thread of the front on my toad. I assume its just scuffing when the toad is asked to turn when following the RV .

RE: Class A tire Air pressure

You have to know the weight of each corner of your RV before you can even guestamate the correct pressure. Once weighted, you find the chart for your tire and air them to the proper pressure.

RE: K&N air filter

If you google K&N comparison testing, you will never consider the K&N to protect your engine. Even if...IF....it did increase fuel mileage which is debatable, it isn't worth the amount of dirt it passes thru.

RE: How many do you know who quit the "Class A" life?

I know of only one couple who he decided that 8 years was enough of fulltiming and sold their MH and rented a 2 bedroom home. His wife wasn't in favor of the change but it was his way or the highway I guess.

RE: Removing garage wall in toy hauler

On another note: the balance of the toy hauler will be affected by the second quad. Do check with the manufacturer about your intent and get professional advice.

RE: Where do you hide your money?

There is an access panel just below my shower door that is held in place by 4 phillips screws. Simple to remove and about a square foot of dead space for important stuff that I don't want to leave in a box under the couch or in the laundry hamper. Seldom have to access it but easy to access when needed. BTW: The Canadian Border inspectors had no problem locating it and getting a chuckle out of it.

RE: Autoformers - what's available as of 2016?

I bought a used 30 amp Hughes Autoformer from a guy in Quartzsite 11 years ago. I converted it to a permanent mount so its always plugged in and works only when it thinks it needs to. It has worked flawlessly for 11 years of fulltiming and who knows how long before that. I do see used ones for sale, especially 30 amp units at the park swap meets and Quartzsite flea markets.

RE: RV park "age restictions"

We full time and I've never been questioned about the age but once. I told the desk clerk that it was so **** old that it was paid for. And because it was paid for, I can afford to stay at a newer park, thanked them and drove off.

RE: The Biggest Marketing Scam Success in the RV world

Excellent evaluation. TP? Who care how long it takes to dissolve or if it even dissolves. I use Sewer Solution for my dumping system and it breaks down the sturdiest of the TP. I havent used chemicals in over 11 years of fulltiming and have never felt the need. Specialty items labeled for RV's is just the same products made for boats and cars. I do disagree on the Honda...Its worth the money just for the reliability and quietness of the units. Stabilizers? Not a fix all unit but it did help my W22 chassis making it road worthy, years ago. Now my flamingo? Waldo has appeared in pictures in 48 states and its the perfect mascot. Don't even have to pick up after him.

RE: Only good drone is 100 of them

As someone who has flown quads (drones) for over 4 years, I can't figure out how that was done other then the use of computers doing all the flying. Even with that, it would be very difficult to keep the formations intact. There is some very smart people out there.

RE: Door Hinge how do I measure?

Pangaea Ron took the words out of my mouth. I can see where, if removed, you can gently straighten the hinge pin where its bent.
