RE: Fresh Water Hose

I have one of these https://images3.campingworld.com/CampingWorld/images/products/15000/125x125/1547.jpg Shop around for best price. I usually get 3+ years out of it. You can buy the hose without the reel and save a few bucks. The convienice far exceeds the annoyance of replacing it once every three years. Important: to extend the life of it - do NOT drag it across the ground. When reeling it up, dont drag it - just walk around with the reel and pick it up. If you need to move it - pick it up. It will last a lot longer. And make sure you put the pressure regulator between the faucet and the hose - not between the hose and the camper. There are a lot of people who say they are terrible. That has not been my experience. YMMV Please note - the above is not the same thing as these: http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51u7yNu367L._AA160_.jpg Many of these are not rated for drinking water.

RE: Dometic buys Atwood

Anyone want to join me and create a company that makes quality RV products at a competitive price all the while paying an army of lawers and accountants to deal with the EPA, IRS, DOJ, DEA, DOE, and the rest of the GOV?

RE: *NO* Labor Day Horror stories!

I hate to be the Debbie Downer, but I had: 1. loud music. 2. late night parties. 3. drunks. 4. screeming kids. 5. dogs pooping in your camp site. 6. "stuff" stolen. 7. Horrible, unfriendly campground - campers AND the mgmt. 8. Traffic was problem - more than usual. 9. In addition to #1-8, no neighbors observed generator "quiet times". 10. Everything broke and I had a bad experience! Oh wait...I figured out what I did wrong! I didnt go camping!

RE: 2014 Wrangler Requires battery disconnect - What do you use?

I wonder... Of all the people who are towing newer Wranglers which have NO steering lock, and have been confused by the outdated instructions in the Owners Manual, how many have called (or written) Jeep Customer Service and told them about the incorrect information in the book? Maybe if Jeep gets enough informative calls, they will issue a correction! No they won't. Not unless there are more calls/complaints because my GC is wrong as well and I have written to Chrysler and told my dealer. I bet there are so many in print that they aren't going to change it until the supply is exhausted. Why they don't change the electronic version is asinine. This subject has been brought up so many times it seems that there needs to be a sticky.......for the Wrangler TOAD. The 2014 JGC OM is correct, no steering lock, no battery pull is required. Just checked the OM myself... Can I assume you mean the printed version is correct? As the owners manual from the Jeep Web site still has the reference to disconnecting the battery (page 552)

RE: Bed width?

Also keep in mind the there are different heights of bed rails (sides) depending on year and manufacturer. Also newer trucks have smaller tailgate openings, i.e. you measure the width of the top of the rails in the front of the bed it will be far wider than the opening for the tailgate. This creates problems if you buy a few year old camper and a brand new truck.

RE: 2014 Wrangler Requires battery disconnect - What do you use?

It does not have a steering column lock so there is no need to disconnect the battery. The Owners Manual says nothing about disconnecting the battery... I am going to assume you have a printed version of the Owners Manual that came with your 2014 Wranger. I downloaded the owners manual from the Jeep Web site and it is in there. But this wont be the first time (or last) that a printed document contradicts an electronic version of a document. Mowermech has a good point: I wonder... Of all the people who are towing newer Wranglers which have NO steering lock, and have been confused by the outdated instructions in the Owners Manual, how many have called (or written) Jeep Customer Service and told them about the incorrect information in the book? Maybe if Jeep gets enough informative calls, they will issue a correction!

RE: What is the dumbest thing you have seen while on the road?

One of the dumbest things I saw was a truck driving down a mountain highway about 10 feet ahead of an old single axle Terry holiday trailer that was no longer attached and obviously had no safety chains or trailer brakes. I was visiting with my sister as I was hooking my truck up to the trailer and I didn't push the little ball lock thingy down nor did I hook up the safety chains. We got going down the highway and hit a railroad crossing at 50 mph. I watched in the mirror and saw the trailer bounce up in the air and immediately recognized it had come unhooked. I calmly said to my wife "we just lost our trailer". She didn't believe me so I said " no really its chasing us down the highway". The kids thought it was great fun but when my wife saw I wasn't joking she started beating on me calling me an idiot. We crossed a bridge which had a curb at the edge of the road. The road was crowned in the middle so the trailer started to veer to the right. It bounced off the curb and headed to the left I was about ready to slam on the brakes to let it pile into my truck as there was on coming traffic but the crown in the road was enough to send back to the right again. It bounced again off the curb and eventually after crossing the bridge it went off into the ditch. I hooked on to the back bumper with a tow strap and pulled it back onto the road and by this time a couple other vehicles stopped to help. The wires were pulled out of the plug and the jack was damaged but other than that it was only my pride that was hurt. We had enough help to manually lift it up onto the ball hitch and after reattaching the wires we were on our way. (and during the entire time Yakety Sax was playing in the background)

RE: 2014 Wrangler Requires battery disconnect - What do you use?

Interesting...very interesting. Incorrect information in the owners manual? Say it aint so!!!! 10. Turn the engine OFF and leave the ignition switch in the unlocked ACC position. This is from page 552 of the 2014 owners manual from the jeep.com web site (see the link in my first post) It appears that the world has not come to an end by leaving the battery connected and the ignition switch off!

2014 Wrangler Requires battery disconnect - What do you use?

We are 95% sure we are going to go buy a new 2 door Wrangler soon and I was doing some research. I downloaded the owners manual from the Jeep Web site and found in the instructions for "Shifting Into NEUTRAL (N)": 15. Disconnect the negative battery cable, and secure it away from the negative battery post. Our Jeep Liberty does not need a battery disconnect, so this caught me by surprise. I am curious what other Jeep owners are using for a disconnect. Pulling the cable of the battery and leaving it hang seems a bit crude. I see there are various disconnects on the market. Or is there a work around for this?

RE: So what did you do to your Truck Camper today?

Replaced the Fantastic Fan vent cover today. When I bought the camper it was cracked already (although it was covered by a MaxAir vent cover.) Last week it fell to pieces. Got a white double layer model from Amazon

RE: JK TOAD Sticky

EDIT: Maybe a toilet paper sticky would be a good idea! :B What is sticky toilet paper and what does it have to do with a Dinghy?

RE: Look before you leave

I have a checklist in my head, but to make sure it works 100%, I always make two trips around - and if I find anything that has to be fixed, I fix it, then start the checklist over from the top. I start from the same corner of the vehicle every time. Check things in the same order every time. One time I completed my check list. Twice around. Start up. Pulled out. Headed on down the highway. But something sounded wrong. So I took and carefully listened to each sound. Little bit of a whistle of the air going around and over the cab. Normal. Even running sound of the engine. Normal. Rhythmic bumping sound of the tires crossing the expansion joints in the highway. Normal. It was wrong. It was too quiet. Something was missing. Wait. No one told me I was turning the wrong direction at every intersection. Crap. I forgot she was going to the dumpster to get rid of the trash.
