RE: Battery backup (UPS) for computer while on house batteries?

Don't forget to compute the power the UPS will consume when calculating power usage. As long as the UPS is plugged in it will use power to monitor load and charge batteries so depending on the size and construction could be sizable.

RE: Car dolly

Rich if the dolly pivots or the wheels turn, steer, then the car steering wheel MUST be secured only one pivot point is allowed or the car can start "wagging" going down the road and can make contact with the fenders. On our Sorento I used the seat belt threaded through the spokes and extended all the way. May switch to a ratchet strap but what ever you use be careful not to make too tight and damage wheel. Have also thought about drilling a the pivoting deck and put 2 bolts in to hold it steady and let the wheel turn.

RE: Adding a cleanout to dump at your home in LA

Rule up here in Ventura county is you can have a cleanout but you can not label it a RV dump.

RE: inverter question

I only turn on the inverter if I need it to power something as it has it's own parasitic load on the batteries even when nothing is calling for power. Can be from 1-5 amps depending on the inverter.

RE: 1994 BMW 325I towing four down

No one makes a plate you will have to have custom mounts made. Reason we got a dolly to tow our 99 323i convertible 5 speed. The 6 speed can not be towed and now auto can be towed. We towed that car for around 30k miles with no driveline issues.

RE: Using a tow dolly

We went tow dolly instead of towbar for a couple reasons, 1 no one made plate for our 199 BMW 323i and a custom plate was $750-850 we paid $650 used for the dolly complete with surge brakes and lights. Now we traded in the BMW for a Kia Sorento, not 4 down towable, and can still tow. If we spent the money on the BMW it would have been gone with the car. Dolly gives more options, like buy what you like vs. what can be towed 4 down. We have towed cross country and through the mountains with none of the tracking issues or parking problems beyond 1 more thing to fit into our spot. Some places even have a place to park your dolly or trailer so you don't deal with in the spot.

RE: RV show joke: Pricing not honored

In CA. the price on the sticker would have to be honored, now they are fully capable of making up for it on the trade allowance. Unless you pay cash with no trade! :B

RE: How to Dolly Tow Unlockable Sterring Wheel Car

Leave a key in the ignation and turned to the first position. Check to make sure the radio and all accessories are off. What does that have to do with dolly towing a car that does not have locking steering? The question was " How to Dolly Tow Unlockable Sterring Wheel Car" To me that indicated he was asking how to tow it when he could NOT keep the steering wheel unlocked (with key removed). The question did not say "does not have a locking steering wheel". The steering wheel needs to be unlocked on most tow dollies. With may ACME EZ tow it is specified to tow that way. In order to do so, I leave a spare key turned to the first position, all accessories turned off and lock the door with another key. There lies the problem the question is, the car does NOT have a locking steering wheel and with a dolly that pivots, wheels or table, how do you keep the steering still.

RE: Toad debris protector

RE: How to Dolly Tow Unlockable Sterring Wheel Car

With a dolly either the dolly steers, through wheels turning or deck pivoting, or the steering of the car turns. NEVER both, so either secure the steering wheel or the dolly from turning.

RE: Coffee Grinder?

We got one of theserecently and love it. You can adjust the grind and how much. We have both a Bunn drip coffee maker and an espresso machine. With this unit I can grind the coarseness I need and the amount for both systems. :B We got ours with points from something!

RE: slide out in slide out

Before they went under, I think National RV was the first to offer a "slide-in-slide" feature. I don't recall which of their several brands had it though. Yes National created it and Monaco bought the rights out of bankruptcy. At first people were asking why but it gave more flexibility in usage. You could retain the ability to move around in the coach with the slides in but get the advantage of deeper slides when parked. When parked in a narrow spot only slide out to the first section.
