RE: Can you back up with a toad 4 down

It only takes me about 2 minutes to unhook and another three to hook back up. For five minutes, I'm not taking the risk of damaging something. In a dozen years towing, I've had to do this maybe 4 times. Once you've done it a couple of times, you learn how to avoid it. It's not hard to avoid these situations in the first place.

RE: Push button start towables not sure it applies to all !!

Baloney. My car has push button start, and diodes for the tail lights. In more than 4 years of towing it I have never had a bit of trouble with "backfeed", and I don't do anything special with my lights.

RE: Do you like your jacknife sofa?

Good sofa, lousy bed. Uncomfortable in sleeper-bed position.

RE: Newbie from Scotland looking to Tour USA Canada

I'm not an expert but my overseas friends tell me they are only allowed to stay in the US For six months. You could spend the rest of your time in Canada so that may work for you. By alternating between the US and Canada (6 months each) you may be able to avoid the 1 year limit. A water pump is one thing you should not need to bring, since they all work on 12 volts and are readily available here.

RE: campgrounds with cable boxes

As has been said above, the campgrounds do not have a choice in this. It is imposed upon them by the cable companies, so don't blame the campground. Is it inconvenient for RVers? Absolutely but cable companies do not design their systems with us in mind. RVer's are a minuscule slice of their business and they really don't care a whit if we are inconvenienced.

RE: Newbie from Scotland looking to Tour USA Canada

Welcome Barry. I agree with those who say you should buy an RV here and resell when you are done. There are a lot of reasons why your coach will not fit well with our hookups, not to mention the cost of two-way shipping, parts availability (none). You will need air conditioning here. Any region of the US can get very hot in summer. We rely on our air conditioners a lot, but there will be no 220V for you to run from in most places. A used US RV will likely have satellite TV already installed. You would not have to worry about any incompatible appliances, chargers, TV's etc. If you do choose to bring your RV expect to spend some serious time and money adapting it to our facilities. Whatever you decide, I applaud your adventurous spirit and I think that your trip will be better than you ever imagined. How much time do you plan to spend here? My own travels have shown me that it is easy to travel thousands of miles and discover later that you were very close to place of great interest that you never knew about and would like to have seen. If you post your desired itinerary, time schedule and interests, I think we can help you design a travel plan that will help you get the best of your investment in time and money.

RE: Shopping at Lazydays?

Every RVer should go to Lazdays if only to look around and marvel at how big it is. It is definitely the Disney World of RV dealers. Quite impressive. They have a huge assortment of RVs and a staff that has the skills to fix just about anything that can go wrong. The Tampa store has over 100 service bays. Of course there can be some glitches in service, the same as at any dalership. I bought two new DP's from them and I would go back for a third when the time comes.

RE: 2010 Buic Enclave

I know some people who have installed a switch in the fused line to make it easier.

RE: mail forwarding

I have had a home in Maine (4 months) and a home in Florida (8 months) for the past 25 years. I have all my mail sent to FL and USPS temporary mail forwarding from my FL address to the Maine address. In 25 years it has worked fine, no problems, and at zero cost to me. Either I was very lucky for 25 years, or the OP was unlucky (once?). I suggest that he try it again based on how well it has worked for me. For more certainty, go in person to your post office and speak to the Postmaster in advance to be sure it gets done right. (Although I have not had to do that in 25 years). This works only for first class mail, not magazines and such, which are only forwarded for the first 30 or 60 days. I change my subscription mailing address on magazines twice each year. You can usually do this online. If you are traveling by RV and changing address frequently, then the above solution will not work, in which case private mail forwarding is probably your best bet.

RE: Theft from Coach while at Dealer

JnJn, that is a strange insurance setup. Based on what you said, it seems more like a $2900 deductible than a $500 deductible.

RE: Towing 2014 Acura MDX

If I could tow a 2014 MDX, I'd buy one tomorrow. Acura says no way. In the owner's manual it says: "Your vehicle is not designed to be towed behind a motor home. If your vehicle needs to be towed in an emergency, refer to the emergency towing information."

RE: Too big to travel? (45' X 101")

I have been to 46 states including AZ and CA and nobody enforces these rules, except for some routes in CA where over 40' is prohibited. I have never heard of anyone being stopped in CA either, but I would follow those rules if driving in CA. I have even seen Indiana listed as 40' max yet almost all the 45 footers in the world are built in Indiana and driven to their destinations. Bottom line, it is not an issue to be concerned about.

RE: 2015 Honda CRV

Looks that way to me. Is this the last auto transmission import that can be towed four-down ? Are there none left but domestic models?

RE: Tow bar lubrication

Following Roadmaster's instructions, I clean and lube my towbar arms with silicon spray before disconnecting, EVERY TIME. This means that each time I collapse the bar, the tubes are slippery and free of dirt. Seems to keep them working well.

RE: Doing dumb things..

I'm not going to read this topic as there is nothing I can learn from it. I have already done every dumb thing invented by man.

RE: Short term RV storage

Call a nearby RV dealer or Camping World and ask them if you could store it there. Otherwise, try a mini-storage facility as many of them have outdoor storage for boats and RV's.

RE: Design Layout - Individual Space Class A Resort

I thought the OP was describing a 30 degree angle from the road, not the lake. If Iyvlog's impression is correct it would indeed be almost impossible to make the turn. Also, a 12 foot access road is awfully narrow.

RE: How young were you when you bought your first DP?

I was 58 and it was my first RV ever. Wish I had done it 20 years earlier.

RE: DEF (2014 and later RV Owners)

No big deal. I refill 2.5 gallon jugs purchased at Walmart at FlyingJ. No magnets or special container needed. I refill when I get to between 1/4 to 1/2 on the DEF gauge, and add 2 jugs. I drive about 8000 miles per year and need to do this about twice a year. I do believe that the DEF engines get better fuel mileage so the DEF saves more money than it costs.
