RE: Manslaughter charges for improper towing equipment.

So do we now need to install trowable life preservers and carry vest in the RV's or just in the trailers that detach from the RV, maybe an anchor on the trailer might work also? navegator

RE: Cruise control for my 2004 Ford E450 Superduty engine

The fuse box by the drivers feet is closed with a black lid, you can identify it because on the right lower corner there is a semi cicle where the turn signal rellay goes and it is round. Have you checked the switch on the brake pedal to see if it is making contact, the brake pedal some times hangs up and does not let the switch close the cirquit. The cruise control only works above 35 miles per hour, under that does not work and will not engage. navegator

RE: My anti hijack device was installed today

Lojack is useless in Mexico, they do not have police cars with the equipment to detect signals, only in the USA once over the border it is a gonner. navegator

RE: Anyone Add A 3rd 12V Socket In Their Ford Dash Here?

The air bag is on the upper part of the dash, where the glove box used to be in the pre air bag models, and it is housed in its own compartment, there is a knee strike metal bar underneath covered by a plastic, there is sufficient space to acses the area from bellow, been there with a hand hold that I installed for my wife when she goes to the fridge for some sodas or sandwiches. navegator

RE: Water problem ,,, need help ASAP

There might be another valve that is open, there is at least two drains from the water tank with valves and one from the water heater, there will be one or to overfill from the water tank that indicate full tank and this tank maybe full. Hoppe fully you have the instruction manual for the water routing, tank filling, and winterizing, or you might have blown a line of fitting, I do hope that you have a pressure regulator on the line. navigator

RE: Battery minder

Just make sure that the water level in the batteries is at the correct level when you hook the minder and check the level at least once a month if the batteries are not new. navegator

RE: Invasion ~~

As long as anything that touches the ground as tires, jacks, cordes, hoses, limbs of trees, shrubs, the ants have a higway into the unit, on the tires I spray the grouond arround the tires in a square I even spray between the duall tires, had ants coming out of hole between tires one time, spraying the tire it self may miss a spot and that is all that is requiered for the ants to go in, I normally use wood under the jacks and I make shure the wood is well soaked. On some environmentally conscientus parks they allow the home defense and or only ajax cleanner, we are currentlly in a beautifull park in Palm Springs with a lot of wild life and no insectizides are permitted, managment will spray your units with home defence and nothing else, there are big red ants that do not come in and tiny black ones, smalleast ant I have ever seen that are a real trouble, they get sprayed, home defense also works on spiders and cocoroaches here they call them palmetos or water bugs, go figure, for me they are cocoroaches. The home defense is also safe for doogs and cats we where recomended the product by the vet, having 2 dogs and 3 cats at home and a skunk and posums, we did not want dead animals under the house. navegator

RE: Engine Cruise Control

First check the switch at the brake pedal to see that it is making contact, if the pedal sticks on the way up at the end of the travell no cruise, or if the nuts that hold the switch have loosend the switch is not closed and needs to be tightened and adjusted. navegator

RE: Invasion ~~

Home Despot carries a product called Home defence that I spray on all jacks, arround the tires, on the water hose, electric cord and the sewer hose, and I make sure that no branches touch the RV. We had ants in San Diego and my wife would feed them out side and that kept them from coming in the house, the Home Defense works for about 3 months and is odorles to me and can be used arround pets. navegator

RE: Under frame cooking table storage for travel trailer

You might be able to cover the rails with a sheet of plastic attached to the frame and rails so that the table does not pick up to much dirt and grease from the road, maybe with a side sliding door at the front, when you need to clean the compartment tilt the TT a little and hose down the compartment. Good idea, I can not use it the only area available to me is under the catalitic and that will mwlt my table, I am shure some others will benefit from this, thanks. navegator

Check that ground connection it looks like it is corroded beyond use, specially if it is part of the ground for the lights or brake system on the toad. navegator

RE: TIP Renewal question?

If I am not wrong once you become a permanent resident you need to remove or import the RV since you are no longer on a tourist visa and therefore considered in a different status. Maybe someone that has gone trough the proses can shed some light on this for us. navegator

RE: Anyone Add A 3rd 12V Socket In Their Ford Dash Here?

Best way to do it to remove the radio, there should be two holes on each side of the edges, there are U shaped wires that are inserted to push the tabs that hold the radio in place, remove the radio and you can extend some wires from the sockets to the new location, I suggest that you disconnect the batteries when doing this the negative post. Place a fuse in the positive wire just in case, in order not to damage the wood use a hole saw and put that blue tape on the wood and drill a small pilot hole to guide the hole saw drill bit before you start cutting, be prepared to cut into metal behind he plastic cover, hold the drill hard or you will crack the wood. navegator

RE: sewer smell

Does the unit have a permanently installed tank wash system, that might be leaking, the other is some sensors are also passing through the tank wall and the sensor has a leak on the weld, there may also be a crack, I do not know how the tank is mounted to the RV and something moved and punctured the wall. You are going to have to remove part of the under belly and actually inspect the tank, my suggestion is to clean the tank as much as possible and use clean water to find the leak, if you dilute a little bit of engine coolant and use a ultraviolet lamp at night you will detect the leak as you fill the tank. The ultra violet lamps are called black light and are sold at hardware stores or nurseries. Good luck with RV park perfume. navegator
