RE: pros and cons of hydro heat

While not an owner of a coach with this system our rally group has several coaches that do. Virtually all of these coaches were bought used and all of them had issues with the hydro hot system because they had not be serviced regularly. I believe there are many owners with this type system that just do not do the maintenance and then, at some point, wonder why it quits working.

RE: Kansas travel

400 East of Wichita is very good. There is no reason to believe it is any different west of Wichita.

RE: Short DP's Handling

Any Class A MH, semi, bus, etc. is pushing a big wall of air. When you approached him, I assume on the left, it pushed his rear end to the right. Correspondingly his front went left, toward you. If you had watched him as you passed him you would have seen his front go back to the right due to the air pressure between the two vehicles. The less the passed coach weighs the more pronounced the effect. As you get into 39+ units the effect is almost non-existent. .

RE: How to flat tow an AWD SUV?

According to the FMCA Towing Guide there are no 2007 Cadillacs cleared for towing 4 down. Look at your owner's manual for that subject and ask a Cadillac service manager. Call Blue Ox. They know what can be towed and if a pump will solve your problem. The usual reason cars are not towable 4 down is the transmission. That is why almost all of the Hondas are no longer towable.

RE: Pilot/Flying J Loyalty Program

Concerning PenFed credit cards there are a number of moving parts. There are Rewards Signature Visa cards and Cash Rewards Visa cards. There are two Cash Rewards cards; Standard (3% rebate) and Plus (5% rebate). After the first year the Standard cost $25, the Plus is free forever. With the Signature card you can redeem points for merchandise or debit cards. With the Cash Rewards card the rebate is applied to your account monthly. HOWEVER, those are the current rules. I have had a Cash Rewards card for several years. It has no annual fee and a 5% fuel rebate that is converted to points that I can redeem. It would appear that most of the rules that apply when you get your card remain because my Cash Rewards card has attributes of both of the current cards. Concerning P/FJ RV Plus charge card, in my experience it is the only one that allows pump start in the truck lanes. That is why I have one. Those rules started when they brought out that charge card. Also, if you use the truck lanes and use another credit card for fuel inside most of them will not give you a gas rebate since, as was stated, you need to swipe at the pump. That even applies to the RV lanes. Lastly, P/FJ is installing receipt kiosks inside the building for those who only want a receipt. Somewhat like checking in to the airlines for a boarding pass. This whole discussion is similar to when Pilot and Flying J merged. It takes time for everyone involved to get the correct information and for the system to settle down.

RE: Pilot/Flying J Loyalty Program

In reference to the cost of a GS card you have to remember that it is now a triple use card; Good Sam, Camping World and P/FJ. Previously, you had to pay separately for the GS and CW cards and the P/FJ card was free. I do not remember what the prices used to be but I doubt the combination was less than $25 per year. Everyone has their own style of travel but there are many who use all three of these companies and the newer card gets you discount at all three. I honestly do not care how others spend their money since I do not have to pay their bills. My reason for starting this thread was to pass on some info I recently obtained in hopes it would be beneficial for some. Unfortunately, it turned into a vehicle for negativity concerning P/FJ.

Pilot/Flying J Loyalty Program

Just returned from the Tampa RV show and thought that I might pass on some info concerning the subject program. Many of you may already be aware of this information as I was told it was in the Good Sam email newsletters. Pilot/FJ have basically turned over their loyalty program to Good Sam. If you renew your Good Sam card this year you should receive a new "Swipe and Save" card that has a magnetic strip on the back. This card looks like a credit card but it is not. You will be able to use it at Pilot/Flying J just like the current P/FJ loyalty card. However, the devil is in the details. P/FJ will cease honoring their current cards (RV Real Value Club and MyRewards card) on Jan 1, 2015. After that date you have to have a Good Same Swipe and Save card to get P/FJ discounts. If your Good Sam renewal is after Jan 1, 2015 I would suggest that you call Good Sam Customer Service (800-234-3450). They may ask you to extend your current membership. I did not have to do that since my membership runs out to 2016 and they are sending me a couple of new Swipe and Save cards. After 2014 you will not be able to get a fuel discount at P/FJ unless you have a Good Sam card.

RE: C Coach with a CRV Toad..?

RayChez I think that the major problem is the nav package as many have found that not having it shut down while towing drains the battery. Without the nav package most should get by without a charge line. That doesn't mean you should, just that you can get by. I have found that my CR-V battery goes flat after six straight days of towing without driving the car. That occurs even with the three minute running each morning. I also think that without a charge line you probably shorten the life of your battery as I have never gotten the typical five years out of my CR-V batteries. Therefore, next spring a charge line gets installed in my 2004 CR-V.

RE: COMPLETE: Fluorescent to LED Conversion

I might mention that in an earlier thread by someone who also converted their fluorescent fixtures that they had determined they did not need a regulator. He stated that after finding out how much wiring was between his batteries and fixtures that the line loss involved would drop his voltage to the point where too much voltage would not be a problem.

RE: cracked counter top

I agree with smlranger, check with Winnebago. If it is Vendura it can be repaired easily. Vendura had repair kits for the DIY. Vendura can be worked just like wood. Winnebago can tell you what color your countertop is. Vendura will need that info to get you the correct kit.

RE: PenFed Credit Card

It is possible that the change to lower rebates will only apply to those who apply for a new card. For a card you have had for a while sometimes the benefits you have are grandfathered. That is what happened to the Mastercard that I use. The MC benefits I have are no longer offered but I still get them. We will just have to standby to standby.

RE: PenFed Credit Card

Having just spoken to a PenFed rep I was told that, at least for my card, a Platinum Rewards card, that nothing has changed or is going to change. For anyone concerned about this subject I would suggest you call PenFed.

RE: How to Run HDMI cable-Southwind

Agree with the wireless HDMI since I just did that. If you use cable and go over 18ft you will need a booster. Before the wireless HDMI option I checked on putting in an HDMI cable. By the time I got done I would have had 25-30 involved with a booster and a bill north of $400.

RE: HWH Jacks

Interesting recommendations. I had some jack return problems and my service manager said to use WD-40. I did and have not had problems since. Last time I visited the HWH booth I asked what product to use for that problem and all of the HWH reps in the booth agreed that WD-40 was the company answer. They all also said not to use a silicone spray. I find the ATF answer interesting since you can not get it in a spray container, though you can put it in a spray bottle.

RE: Paint code

On many cities there is one of the auto parts stores that has a paint section that mixes paint. You can take a removable panel to them and they can match the paint and put it in a spray can. For interest, you can do the same thing for your home at Lowes and Home Depot.
