RE: toad is dead

I tow a 2012 Honda Fit - auto - blue ox setup. love it. As another poster mentioned, the 2015 auto is NOT towable. Look for a used Fit, great toad option.

RE: Broken plastic Atwood hot water heater drain plug

OP, I've "been there, done that". I am not a DIY'er but with a suggestion from this forum, I got the plastic plug out. Go to HD or Lowe's. Go to the lawn sprinkler area and get a device called "nipple extractor" (yes, no lie that's the name on the package). Cost is under $10 - looks like a "T" , 2 size ends - it took some muscle (maybe because I'm a girl) but the snapped off plug came out. I don't leave home without that crazy little tool!!!

RE: Cell phone reception database?

I often check with the Verizon coverage map - you can put in the cg address. I don't know if other providers have a similar feature. I also ask the cg staff at the time of making a reservation. I find in some national/state parks there is sporadic coverage, but often not everywhere.

OBX campgrounds after Arthur?

Does anyone know how the campgrounds in the southern OBX fared? Camp Hatteras, KOA, and Ocean Waves? We are headed there in a few weeks, (Ocean Waves) just curious, and don't want to bother the busy cg owners with a phone call at his time. Figured someone here will know. Thanks.

RE: Service appointments

Call a mobile tech. You can also go to the HWH website and find an authorized repair center near you. I would not go to CW, but that's just me.

RE: Cummings ISB 5.9L Turbo Diesel 300hp

I am a fulltimer, my '02 Newmar Kountry Star has the ISB 5.9 300hp. I am not engine tech knowledgeable, so I can't give you any specs, etc. I can tell you I have traveled up and down many, many mountain passes - not at jack rabbit speed, but that's A OK with me. I have 98k miles on that engine, and plan on putting on lots more. I did have a fuel pump failure, if I remember right (it's been several yrs ago), the particular pump was known for problems - a Bosch 44 - . That has been my only engine issue. The rear radiator needs to be cleaned on a regular basis, otherwise you might start running hot climbing. I have gotten 10mpg, but generally more like 9 - 9.5. I tow a Honda Fit, about 2500 lbs.

RE: Banff and Jasper Natl Park campgrounds? Please advise

We had hookups at both Banff and Jasper (Trailer Tunnel and Whistler). Go to the website - check on availability. The cgs were full the entire time of our stay - we had reservations. Go early to the parking lot of Moraine Lake (it is fairly small and very popular - so early is best) There is an uphill hike, but very doable, to one of the most spectacular sights you'll ever see. Enjoy, it is so beautiful

RE: Trek vs. Police cars

My Mom always told me to wear clean underwear in case of an accident - as to not be embarrassed in ER, I guess. Think this guy's Mom told him the same thing? Jeesh, the craziness is spreading.

RE: need help quick!!!! breakdown UPDATE

OP UPDATE Thanks for all the input. Here is what I have been told from repair center, as best as I can remember. They initially checked fuses, relays, and solenoid - all ok. Then checked wiring for loose connection - all good, too. They called in an Allison tec with computer/software and determined that the TCM was not functioning. Ouch!!!! The TCM is currently being programmed and overnighted - should be installed tomorrow (FR). Keep your fingers crossed that this solves my breakdown problem. The repair tec is checking my batteries and voltage today, just in case there is an issue. Nothing left for me to do, but wait and PAY :(

RE: need help quick!!!! breakdown UPDATE

Over the years, there have been a number of failures of the ignition solenoids. Easy to diagnose-- Turn on dash HVAC fan (something you can easily hear/feel and only works with the ignition on). If it works, ignition switch, wiring and ignition solenoid are all functioning as they should. If the fan does not work, then check for 12+ VDC at the chassis battery, then at one large lug of the ignition solenoid (one large lug is connected to the chassis battery 100% of the time, the other large lug only has 12+ VDC when the ignition is on). When the ignition is turned on, the solenoid should click and the other large lug should have the same voltage as the other large lug. If not click and no power to other large lug, remove the positive wire from the small terminal on the solenoid. With a small jumper wire from the hot large lug to the small positive terminal, you should hear the click and other large lug should now have chassis battery voltage. If it works with the jumper, the ignition switch or wiring from it to the solenoid is suspect. If jumping does nothing, the solenoid is bad. In an emergency, the solenoid can be bypassed: Label (tape, wire tie, etc) all the wires on the "dead" large lug. ADD them to the wires on the "hot" large lug. All electrical functions will be just as if you had the key on all the time. Obviously, you need to remove them to turn the "ignition off". Op here. The dash was set on "vent" fan going on #2 speed. Continued to blow during failure. I shut it off. Don't have access to the coach right now. Just hoping I've stumbled on to a good tech

need help quick!!!! breakdown UPDATE

I traveled about 5 miles, everything was normal. Then all holy hannab. "Check trans" lights up on dash. Feel loss of power. Allison keypad is blank. Lose all power. Engine shut down. All this before I could pull over. I tried to restart, nothing happens. Nothing. No normal dash lights, no sound from engine. Have been towed to truck facility. Sound like tranny or 12v problem? Thanks for any insight Kathy Posted update

RE: Maine Coast

Loved Moorings. We were there for a week, with an ocean view to die for!! There is no sewer, but weekly's get a free honey wagon - and there is a dump. It was a minor inconvenience for a great location.

EZ Pass in rental car?

We have the I Pass (EZ Pass) from IL, the transponder is easily moved from mh to toad - and both are registered. I need to rent a car for a family event - can I use my transponder in the rental? Of course, there are toll roads to our destination :) thanks, Kathy
