RE: 2014 Honda CRV Toad... Totally Almost Confused...

The 2015 CR-V and Fit have CVT's and are NOT towable. That is probably where the salesman got his info, but the 2014's definitely ARE towable.

RE: My Science Project - Eliminate Front TV Switch Box

I think your plan is brilliant. Go for it! Two comments: I don't see any provision for Satellite TV or for park cable TV. These inputs should be provided for. Best of luck with your project.

RE: looking for a toad

The 2014 may not be towable four-down, but people are towing 2012's 4-down and maybe 2013's. At some point Honda changed the transmission and the new ones are not towable. I think if you have a 5-speed trans you can tow, but a 6-speed you cannot. Note that Honda does not sanction this, but people are doing it successfully using the Honda pre-tow procedure from the earlier models (2005 Pilot and MDX) that were approved by Honda for towing. If the tranny breaks you are on your own. Honda will not be responsible. Another possibility that works is towing a Chrysler minivan and installing a Remco transmission pump. Check it out here.

RE: New Cherokee & pressure pro tire monitors

I use Pressure Pro on my Lincoln MKT which has its own tire pressure sensors with no problem. You should be able to do likewise.

RE: Rochester NH to Brandy Pond ME

Yes. I-95 has tolls. I pay them for the ease of use of the good roads. As I said, the alternate routes are of varying quality and sometimes very rough, or narrow, or have low-hanging trees to contend with. But if you wish to avoid tolls you will have to find another route.

RE: Rochester NH to Brandy Pond ME

This is not a particularly mountainous area, so I don't think you will have a problem with hills on any of those routes. However, the state highways in Maine often leave much to be desired, so I usually use I-95 and US 302 to reach the Brandy Pond area.

RE: Monaco (Era)

I woul be hesitant to buy a coach built in the final year before bankruptcy, as they were likely cutting corners while building them

RE: Monaco (Era)

The new Monacos have the same name, but are not the same as the old Monacos. I think that is why the OP asked the question.

RE: 2014 Chevy Equinox LTZ

I thought the Blue-Ox brackets looked better. I still do.

RE: 2014 Chevy Equinox LTZ

I have a Roadmaster tow bar and Blue-Ox bracket and it works well. You just have to get new ends for your towbar arms.

RE: Refilling DEF Containers

Yes you can refill the containers. Many of us do it. Just keep the container clean and rinse off the white crusty stuff that sometimes forms.

RE: Need new DP

Entegra has a 40' model if you want to go that way, but I must say I was nervous going from 41' to 45 feet but now that I have the 45 it is a non-issue for me. 35 to 45 is a big deal, but 40 to 45 is not.

RE: Amish fridge goes into dumpster!

Just pull it and add in a residential. I did and love it. I also pulled the stove and propane tank too. I got a 110 volt induction burner. Works great. GAS REFRIGERATOR Vs Domestic (AC) REFRIGERATOR My gas frig (Dometic Side-by-Side, NDR1292) is shot and it will take $3,000+ to replace. So maybe now is a good time to switch to a regular 10cu-ft Vissani Brand house refrigerator you can buy at Home Depot for just $300? So I'm wondering what the pro vs cons are? Plus... Do you ever use an inverter with your AC units and if so what sort of performance can I expect if I switch over? I'm just an average RV'r that goes out on 2-3 week trips and ends up in an RV park 75% of the time. What's the best battery + inverter option + line conditioner out there and does it work? I have 4 deep cycle house batteries and a 3000W inverter on my 39' Noational Tradewinds coach. Thank you for your reply and advice. Residential refrigerator is the way to go. Everyone who does it is pleased as can be. They operate well under all conditions, on road, parked, shore power or inverter. Make sure the one you buy is Energy Star rated and can operate on modified sine wave power, unless you have a pure sine wave inverter. Can't run A/C on inverter. It would kill your batteries in no time.

RE: Recliner Shopping

I have owned two different brands of motorhome, both purchased new and both included a recliner chair or two. In neither case was there anything to restrain the recliner chair(s). Have driven about 80,000 miles including some panic stops, and never has the recliner chair moved.

RE: Getting screwed by CoachNet

As I recall the coach in question was a 2104 Anthem. All of those are on Spartan Chassis.

RE: Getting screwed by CoachNet

Absolutly correct. Had the owner called Entegra, Entegra would have contacted Coach-Net and gotten the service performed. Entegra takes care of their customers, and has lots of influence with their suppliers such as Coach-Net (which is owned by National Motor Club). In addition to Coach-Net, the Entegra coach is on a Spartan Chassis, and Spartan povides at no cost a three year subscription to Good Sam emergency towing service. So, the the owner was covered by BOTH Coach-Net AND Good Sam, but since the coach was new, the paperwork was not yet completed. Had he called Entegra, this all would have been resolved quickly. I don't know where the fault was, but I am sure that his new coach paperwork details all this and had he read it (granted it is voluminous) he would have known what to do. In addition, the dealer (Camping World) probably should have told him about these coverages, but my dealer didn't tell me either. I learned it by reading my new coach materials.

RE: Direct TV..Rude Rep..What are the rules?

Best to convince them your FullTiming and MH is you primary unit then mirror to your stick built house. That's what I do, works great. To me DNS is worth every penny to get networks anywhere and no fiddling with the batwing or searching for channels at each stop.

RE: Coach Prices and Long Term Quality

Would you agree that the following coaches would have the “Good Bones” for th 15/20 year plan we've been discussing? (I stayed away from Monaco because of the Maxxforce engine. I stayed away from Tiffin because of their recent problems) The following coaches are all 45 footers with 1 1/2 baths. American Eagle 45T MSRP $686,000 Entrega Cornerstone 45K MSRP $585,000 Newmar Essex 4544 MSRP $682,400 What do you think? I think that any of these coaches will outlast you if they are cared for properly. The idea that more money buys more longevity is not correct in coaches at this level, or even at a much lesser price level. What separates these coaches is features, floorplans, comfort, ride, handling, performance, and to some degree, warranty and factory support. But not longevity.

American RV, 225 SW 33rd St. Fort Lauderdale, FL 33315-3327. (954) 523-2796 Keith did an outstanding job on my brand new car 4 years ago. Reasonable.

RE: 2014 Jeep Cherokee Satellite Radio Signal

question for those of you with 2014 Chrokee or Grand Cherokee. Do the new models suffer from the problems with shifting the gearcase in and out of neutral, like the older ones are having? I was told it is only pre-2011 models that have the problem but I'd like to confirm this.
