RE: Chevy Volt as toad and battery system for RV

Possible, yes. Economically feasible, not very likely in our lifetimes. The development cost would be too large to be paid off by the relatively small number of RV's that could afford it.

RE: 2015 Toyota Highlander V-6 All Wheel Drive Towing

Also Lincoln MKX, Lincoln MKT, Buick Enclave, Cadillac SRX. My 2003 Acura MDX was AWD and towable, but the new ones aren't.

RE: Do you cross your safety cables?

I can't see any good reason NOT to cross them. There is no downside to doing it, and it could keep the broken parts off the ground in the event of an equipment failure or breakage.

RE: MagneShade Owners

If you want to save money go to www.rv-sunscreen.com. The RV Promptscreen costs less than half as much as Magneshade. It goes up easily in two minutes with no ladder needed and nothing to attach permanently to your coach. The only drawback is that it doesn't always lay completely flat on the windshield, so it may sag a tiny bit. I have nothing to do with the company but I have used the product happily since 2003. Looks just like the Magneshade.

RE: Any tips for driving 40' class A diesel in snow

Gee I hope you have a really good reason for wanting to do this. To me it is far more risk and trouble than it is worth. I'd rather wait it out and drive in good conditions.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

I've seen that evidence too, but when a Lincoln salesman who makes his living on commission tells me it is not towable, that shatters my confidence. I don't want to invest 50 grand in this car with crossed fingers.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

Owners Manual says yes. Dealer told me no. Poster above says not with Eco engine. I want the Eco Engine. I'm not buying unless and until there are online people reporting sucess over a period of time. It is just too confusing. A definitive confirming statement from Lincoln would be a big help here. Does anybody here know someone in Lincoln management?

RE: If you had to buy again today...

The only reason that I have a 45 footer is because they don't make a 50. Bigger is more luxurious, drives better, rides better and carries more. Most people who trade are trading for a larger size, and trading is very costly. Unless you have a special need for smaller, go bigger.

RE: Lube pumps for towing

j-d is right. The number of people who want to tow is a drop in the bucket to car manufacturers and they are not going to make their decisions to please us. Hence the disappearance of some great towable vehicles. At one time all Hondas were towable, Acura MDX, Ford Escape, etc. No more. The towable vehicle with auto trans is an endangered species. I wish that Remco or somebody else would make lube pumps to fit a wider array of vehicles.

RE: Avoiding garden state parkway south

84-81-77-26-95 is the only way. The GPS says it is an hour longer but in real life, traffic, stoppages for no reason, and other aggravations it is much the better and less time route. I have gone both ways in a big truck many times and I know the difference. I totally agree. I've done it every way possible and the above route is prettier, more relaxing, and avoids all the big cities with their associated traffic and delays. Winchester VA is a favorite stopping over point.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

The dealers give contradictory information and there is just no way to know the truth without getting it directly from Lincoln. Can you provide a way for me to contact your person at Lincoln?

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

Hot news! I went to the Lincoln dealer and took a demo ride of the 2016 MKX. I then asked the salesman to demostrate how to prepare the car for towing. The salesman went in to the manager and came out and told me that they just got word that the 2016 MKX CANNOT BE FLAT TOWED. Wherupon I walked out. End of story.

RE: Help Tiffin ceiling panels falling down

Most dealers can't fix things right, especially major things. That's why folks go back to the factory.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

Not sure, just un-nerved by the original post in this thread.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

Back to the original topic: I went to my Lincoln dealer and showed them the original post in this thread and asked them to get me something in writing saying towing a 2016 MKX is authorized. They came back to me with the Ford Fleet Towing Guide, which clearly shows on p. 11 that the 2016 MKX can be towed 4 down. So that makes the owner's manual AND the towing guide which say thumbs up. Should I trust this?

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

I just had an online chat with a Lincoln advisor who told me that 2016 MKX is towable.

RE: Class A purchasing help - input requested & welcome

Hard to find a diesel pusher in your size range. Most of the ones made were 40 to 45 feet. A few around at 38 or below, but they are few and will be very hard to find.

RE: Lincoln mkx 2016

Grimshaw, how did you discover that the owner's manual is wrong? We were just about to buy a '16 MKX for towing.

RE: Test Drove 2 DP's this weekend... and an earthquake...lol

My Entegra coach is extremely quiet. There are no rattles on most roads and I cannot hear the engine at all. They use a Spartan chassis and then Entegra welds in added x-bracing for extra chassis stiifness and strength. The ride is awesome. Try to test drive an Entegra.

RE: My solution to Sleep Number mattresses bursting...

I totally agree. I have had an inflatable RV mattress since 2003 and have been very pleased with it. Always reduce pressure in the mattress before going to higher altitude. After nine years of travel I still don't find it to difficult to push the button on the remote and air the mattress "down" before a big change in altitude. It doesn't seem hard to me, and I am lazy.
