RE: Time to downsize, Time to simplify

What are they going for, if you don't mind me asking. I can't find one anywhere. I did find one that was gutted. I have to have a gas furnace and AC. I sold my 2004 Aliner DL for $4500 which was probably too cheap since it sold 20 minutes after posting it on the Aliner Club Swap Shop. The do show up occasionally on Craigslist and at RV dealers, but you have to be persistent and patient. I live in Pennsylvania and the person that bought mine drove from Key West, Florida to get it - Can't imagine I would have been THAT persistent. There is one on ebay right now. I would like one, but since I already have a motorhome I can't justify that kind of coin.

The Casino on Krome Ave. is the only place I have ever heard of. http://www.miccosukee.com/resort/

RE: Sony Vue and iPad

My old 4 works. I had to update the OS. I can leave it on the coffee table as a remote.

Sony Vue and iPad

I logged into the VUE website and successfully set up an account on my Mac. I downloaded the Vue app in my iPhone and am successfully casting to my Chromecast. I then downloaded the Vue mobile to my wife's iPad, and tried to log in. It tells me there is a problem and to call customer service. I call customer service, and they have no idea what is wrong. They tell me to delete and re-download the app, which I do several times. No joy. What's wrong? My wife needs to be able to watch vue on the TV when I'm gone. Will she be able to do that with the amazon fire stick with remote without any other device? I have one ordered but it hasn't come in yet. Will Vue work with my spare iPhone 4? I'm hoping this thing will save me $700 a year in cable fees.

RE: Motorcycle, Bikes and Generator

I can't tell if you have anything mounted on the front, but I carried a XT225 on the front of my Excursion while towing for years. Worked out pretty well.

RE: Time to downsize, Time to simplify

I would like to find a post 2000 smaller A-liner with AC and furnace to pull behind my Lexus hardtop convertible. They weigh around 1,000 pounds dry. Still looking.

RE: Inverter install question

A tv with an external power supply can be made work by plugging it into the cigarette lighter. I had to get a lighter plug that upped the voltage, 16 iIRC, but it is easy to do and won't have the parasitic draw of an inverter. A better use for an inverter is the microwave. On my TT I installed a Tripp Lite 2,000 watt inverter/charger. I think it was an APS 2012. The only problem was that the microwave did not like the MSW power and did not work correctly. I would spring for a PSW model. I made mine whole house and fed the panel by use of a 2 way automatic switch for the inverter and the plug. I mounted it in the front storage compartment and ran AC th the rear underneath the panel, I used exterior wire. I had to drill 2 holes in the floor. One in the front to deliver heavy cable to the inverter charger, and one beside the panel for the AC. Be sure and fuse the DC cable before it goes into the inverter/charger.

RE: Buying A Used Vehicle From Far Away

That sounds fishy. He was a bona fide purchaser for value. The former owner actually transferred the vehicle without verifying payment. He should suffer the loss. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bona_fide_purchaser

RE: Buying A Used Vehicle From Far Away

How was the boat dealer's feedback? My only concern about these (and I've done 2 fly ins) is that if you don't like the car it will cost you a fortune to get home. If you drove it wouldn't be that bad.

RE: Removing vinyl graphics and painting

How did you mask the curves?

RE: Buying A Used Vehicle From Far Away

The good thing about buying a car on ebay s that you can get exactly what you want, and the seller has accumulated years of feedback. I've bought 2 motorcycles and 3 cars on ebay, but I've personally inspected all of them. I would consider an inspection and shipping , but I've never done it. I'm leary of Autotrader and Craigslist because there is no seller feedback.

RE: Washing Your RV. Blue Beacon? OK or not?

I didn't know hand dry was an option. Do you mean with a towel or leaf blower?

RE: Removing vinyl graphics and painting

I plan on doing this at some point. I need to find a paint that will hold up and can be custom matched. I would like to keep the same color. I can do straight lines with masking tape, but i would have to skip the curves or get someone else to paint them. An art student come to mind.

RE: North Rim of GC area campgrounds or cabins.

That is why I'm taking the Yamaha. I could do the Dugway , but would have a problem with the VOGs.

RE: North Rim of GC area campgrounds or cabins.

You are probably right. I may end up taking the motorhome after all. It is so much easier to travel in a motorhome. My only have-to-sees on this trip are Monument Valley, Mokee Dugway, Valley of the Gods, and the Grand Canyon. If I have time left over I can do Zion and Escalante. I'm going to bring my Yamaha XT225 on a carrier so I won't have to fool with a trailer. I'll use it in case of emergency and to do the Dugway and VOG. If I do the northerly loop and do the North Rim I will have the option of doing Zion and Escalante. If I go in from the south and do the South Rim and proceed north I can do the sights around Moab. Since I only have 6 days I will need to figure out which route makes for the least miles.

Will the second week of September be considered "off" season?

RE: Buying a used Class A Repairs to Expect?

Run from water damage. There is no way of ascertaining the damage behind the wall and roof. There should be plenty of RVs in your local area (within 200 miles) to view. Have you looked at Craigslist? Find an RV survey company to give it a look over if you can't. Find a floorplan you like and if it looks good, have it surveyed by an expert. Don't expect perfect, but water damage is a deal killer for me.

RE: Buying a used Class A Repairs to Expect?

1. Don't touch it if it has any delam or other evidence of leaks; 2. Buy 2 50 foot rolls of Eternabond and seal every seam above the gutters; front and rear cap, around all roof protrousions, and the seam running the length of the coach above the gutter (if you have one, my Winnebago did). 3. Replace tires if over 6 years old (look for date stamp) and replace shocks with Bilstein. 4. Replace sway bar bushings with Polyurethane on front and rear sway bars 5. Replace brake fluid, coolant, ATF, and engine oil. The Brake hose replacement is a good idea too. 6. See how it handles with that done. If it needs improvement, you can add rear trac bar, and SteerSafe. My mechanic has one of the old 460s and loves it.

RE: DIY install of a LED TV.

It doesn't look like it is useful for you, but amazon has several adapters that up the DC voltage so the TVs work. I use this 32 inch Samsung with adapter. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TWFHCLE/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00TWFHCLE/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1 This adapter from 12 to 19 volts. I had to get them to ship me additional ends. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NCNDST2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NCNDST2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
