RE: P30 (1984) Brake Question

Several things could cause it, I will list two. 1. The rubber hose could be braking up and peeling inside preventing the brake fluid from flowing properly. 2. In the brake caliper moisture could have pitted it and preventing it from seating properly and it overheats. I had that problem on a few Chrysler products in the late 80's. Check those two items out.

RE: not snowbirding

Easily understood. Grand kids have a much higher priority than snowbirding. Speak for yourself, LOL I agree, and I am not LOL!

RE: Severe problem towing 2014 Jeep Cherokee

This is a serious problem and coordinated effort will be required to get action out of either the NHTSA or Chrysler. I would urge all who have experienced this to contact Chrysler and NHTSA. I have sixteen reports of this problem so far and Chrysler needs to address it... there is a great video of this occurring but I can't upload it here as it is in MP4. I will send an email to all I know of to try to get us on a common email list so we can better coordinate. Better yet please send me a private message here with your email address. Thanks, Bruce I noticed in your picture of your rig and the Jeep, that you have a bike hanging on the back of your Jeep. That very well could be the problem, have you towed it without that thing hanging on the back?

RE: Severe problem towing 2014 Jeep Cherokee

I have a 2014 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk, V6 with the transmission being the proper one for 4 wheels down towing, that's why I bought it. No problems towing it, I have a Roadmaster stowmaster that I bought off of Ebay about ten years ago, the thing weighs a ton. Hitch at proper height. My 2000 Jeep Wrangler towed great also. I hope it is not the Jeep's problem, if I have wobble problems, I will trade that thing quickly.

RE: Central Florida RV parks and resorts

Another vote for Wilderness Rv Camp ground and resort. You have to stay a week or longer to be able to be put into the "preserve area" where only Class A's are put. The area is surrounded by state and National forest, really close to Silver Springs and shopping. I always stay there a couple of weeks, stayed there all Winter for 3 years. Decided I needed somewhere warmer, this place would fit your needs.

RE: Pittsburgh Parks

Besides Rose Point, Big Bear camp ground Portersville, Pa Near Moraine State Park, there is Indian Brave Rv Camp ground Zelienople-Harmony. That one would be the closest to Pittsburgh, about 20 mins 79 to 279 and your there.

RE: CEO Of Chrysler, Marchionne In Merger Talks With GM?

Oh the thought of Jeep being made by GM makes my skin crawl. Yes. Next we'll hear that Jeeps are being built in Italy or another country. The horror. :) Just was up to my Jeep dealer a few days ago, and there are now smaller Jeeps called Renegade, and they are made in Italy!

RE: Home from Florida but...ready to travel again?

Yes, but I have no desire to live in an RV 365/year. What we found out is the trip south and north from snow birding is the best part. When you take 4-6 weeks coming and going, and 3 months parked south, that travel need is pretty much fulfilled for us. It feels real good to come back to all the comforts that a full size "home" can offer for the summer. I think those comforts are especially appreciated by the one who has to do the dishes, laundry, make the bed, iron, cook, wrap gifts, etc... I agree John, No desire what so ever to live in a "metal box with rubber tires" 365 days a year. Love coming home and getting ground ready for a garden so I can make my sauce for the season, hope those tomatoes grow sweet this year!

RE: How do I remove decal residue

Took every stripe off my 40ft motor home, and re-striped it, what takes the glue off is Acetone, doesn't hurt the gel coat at all, debate all you want, Acetone is it.

RE: Directv Locals in Yuma, Az

I don't know about all this switching, I had my wingard traveler switched on before leaving home, got to S.C. called them, they wanted the zip where I was so I could get local channels, did so and got them. The fellow said, when you get to where your going, I'll have to call with the zip so I can get local channels. Nuts! I got to where I was going, got set up, turned it on and picks up all the local channels without calling and giving them the zip, seems the blind are leading the blind over at Dish.

RE: Purchasing a new class A

Why buy new? Depreciates driving off of the lot, then your stuck with high payments. Many a folks have bought new, nice and shinny, then it ends up being a repo. Buy a good used one, save your self a lot of money. My humble opinion.

RE: Yuma Flea, Farmers, Artists Market questions

The next time we go to Yuma we are considering setting up at a farmers type market to sell my jewelry (silversmith). Are there any markets there that someone might have been to that: 1. gets good attendance 2. has other artists participating Thank you. I can do all the research I want on the internet but there is no sub for someone who has been there. In 2015 we will most likely do Tempe' Festival of Arts so this would be a nice addition...and lets us stay longer:B Donna Every Tuesday they have a nice flea market in the Methodist church parking on frontage road between exit 13 and exit 14.

RE: Dish HD Free For Life is back...

If you're a Dish subscriber and do not already have grandfathered "HD Free For Life" (HDFFL), Dish is again offering it to account holders using autopay and paperless billing. If you currently have the "HD Free For 24 Months" bonus, your account will be automatically converted to HDFFL. You do NOT need to be under contract to get HDFFL, Pay-As-You-Go customers with purchased equipment are also eligible. It took about 4-5 minutes in a CSR chat session to get my account upgraded this morning, eliminating the $10/mo HD fee I had been paying. I just got off the phone with them, it's true but she had to put me on hold until she check it out. one of the conditions is, you have to be regisitered for automatic pay and another one that slipped my mind! I will have mine turned on in a couple of weeks and find out the other condition!

RE: Atlanta route

You never know how the traffic will flow thru Atlanta. sometimes you flow right thru and sometimes you sit for hours. Do not use I-285, go straight thru on I-75, if you go thru Atlanta. I highly recommend using US 27 thru Western Georgia. It is a 4 lane all the way. Nice road and scenery, lots of 65MPH speed limits. In LaGrange get on I-185 to Columbus. In Columbus get on US 280 and go to Albany. In Albany get on US 82 to Tifton and get on I-75. What kind of road is 1 going out of Columbia to Rome?

RE: Atlanta route

There are 3 cities I would rather go out of my way then go through: NYC, Chicago, Atlanta. I went through Atlanta on a Sunday, between 10-3, encountered a accident in which I had to divert off I-75 for two exits then back on. The steering wheel still has indentations in it where my hands were gripping! It was like a race track going through that place!

RE: What is this electrical component?

OK, I ordered a pack of 10 of the 1.2 kohm, 2w resisters 1% tolerance, for $1.99. I paid an extra $2 to expedite the shipping. Hopefully, it will get here before it is too cold to crawl under the RV to install. If I can get the wiring harness from Winnebago, well, I just wasted $4. I'll learn to live with it. If I end up installing a resistor, I will solder it inline with some 14g wire, and heat shrink it to waterproof it. Then I will use 2 weatherproof butt connectors to connect it to the existing wire ends. Don't beat yourself up, you've never wasted money before? I wish I had all the money I've wasted in my life, I would be driving a Prevost then! I put a new set of Kwikee steps on my motor home last year and I didn't have the set up yours has, how old is it?

RE: Cured My Double Towing State Law Issues, Pics Inside

To many states said no to my double towing behind motorhome so I had a custom stacker trailer built at a tune of $4500.00. Trailer has two 6000 lb Henderson axels, 4 electric brakes, trailer valet, boat goes up and down by remote control on a winch cable pulley system, custom fit just for a Jeep Wrangler and small boat. Now I can travel all 50 states and Canada.. http://i.imgur.com/kdFQmBIl.jpg]http://i.imgur.com/kdFQmBIl.jpg My man, that trailer looks great! And congrats for getting a double tow off the road. Maybe you are 600 lbs over weight, but be aware, you are amoung saints here, no one has ever done anything like that or bent the rules. Stones have been picked up and thrown, you still have a nice trailer and I'm sure you didn't on purpose mean to go over weight. Perhaps in the future, you might acquire a motor home with more towing capacity, then, you won't be "living in sin" as the saints proclaim!
