RE: One of the Great Mysteries of rv.net

Sticker is in a cabinet in the motorhome, it was accurate the day they stuck it on with the exact tires on it then and for full GVWR. The sidewall, as was stated, is for the pressure required for THAT tire to carry the max load listed next to the pressure.

RE: House Battery Upgrade - Where to put 'em??

One that I didn't see asked yet is do you know your weights, front, rear and side to side? Batteries are heavy so make sure you know where you have capacity left for all the extra weight.

RE: Install WIFI antenna on Batwing Mod

Short is absolutely a critical but with the huge difference in loss between the 2 cables I would opt for the lower loss. Remember we are trying to "fix" a weak signal and the cable we are talking about is before any amplification.

RE: Smart Light SL-1000 not so smart

Mine did that and the company asked for my physical address and sent new improved replacements. Seems they got either a bad batch of plastic in the lenses or just improved the resistance to the sun aging.

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: Typical Size MH With Washer/Dryer

Our 06 Dolphin is all set up for one. We have drawers in the cabinet but it is plumbed and wired for washer dryer as an option.

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

So what is the best price anyone has found on the Protect-A-Tow?

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: SoCal Rally April 10-12, 2015

Well glad I didn't answer earlier because we got home and found out we have a wedding this weekend! This will the first time we have missed one of these, Anaheim, since we found the RV.net group back in 08! :(
