RE: backup cameras

old guy... I installed one of these (wired)...works great, fun easy install. Absolutely great for hitching and daily driving. Check it out and if you have questions email me. Hopkins LINK...HERE http://beta.hopkins411.com/pic/product/m/50002.13.jpg This one is on sale at Northern tool as we speak for only $125. I put mine in this week. It works great. All you do is plug it in to the rear of the 7 pin. Run the cable to the cab, (I tie wired mine to the wiring harness running along the frame) find a way in, and plug it to the monitor. Clear, perfect picture. I can't recommend it enough. Even has sensors that let you know when you are getting close.

RE: Quieting Jenny.. She talks to loud ??

Kinda like someone else's kids, dogs, music, etc. eh? ... or adults. :) Seriously though, some people and kids are way louder than any generator. Funny enough that I hear them more than then unusual barking dog. Still, I try not to annoy my neighbors by knowing when to use the generator to cause the least distraction for everyone else. The adults and kids generally make noise at all hours of the day and night. Hmm. Let's think. Kids playing, a natural sound in a CG, Adults talking, and laughing, another natural sound in a CG. The incessant drone of a smelly motor running drowning out the birds, and crickets. NOT a natural sound in a CG. I choose the kids.

RE: Smokey Mountains & Blue Ridge Parkway

Thanks everyone. Ken56, there is no kids just the wife and I. Just wanted to go up the BRP about 100 miles just to see the scenery. You will be well out of the Smokey mountains after 100 miles. Most of the BRP is in NC. None of it is in Tenn. So if you stay in the toursty area. It's a pretty good drive just to get on the BRP. And As I say. the farther North you go, the cooler and prettier it gets. Lots of stuff to see on, or right off the parkway.

RE: New AL F-150 gets 5 star safety rating

This was being reported as if it were some type of surprise. Ford performed extensive testing before deciding to go ahead using aluminum. Everyone and his brother in law knew their safety rating was going to be top notch. When you go all new you never know what suprise may pop up. Probably a disappointment to some of the bigger brand bashers here. Sure you're safe. But how much is it going to cost to fix. :) I wonder if the subsequent coronary after seeing the bill will be included in the safety stats.:h :B Don't you just pay the insurance deductible regardless of how much it costs? Unless it's more than the value of the vehicle then it's a total. My sarcasm must not have bled through. There was a vocal few that thought insurance rates would soar due to the increased repair costs. So yes, you would only pay the deductible but you would pay the higher costs via your premium. No one does much body work any more. they just replace the crunched section.

RE: Smokey Mountains & Blue Ridge Parkway

Just be careful of the Blue Ridge Pkwy, there are a lot of very low tunnels (too low for many medium to large trailers). I think there are a couple in the 10' range. Check their website, it lists the clearances and mile markers of all the tunnels. Not really. The lowest min clearance is 11'1", and that is at the dead outside of the tunnel, The max at the centerline of that tunnel is 18'1". Also there is a Camping club that takes a Class A Motorhome the entire length of the BRP every year, Just to sow it can be done. In truth, the BRP is the best road thru the Blue Ridge. Many of the roads leading to it on the other hand are pretty hairy.

RE: Smokey Mountains & Blue Ridge Parkway

While you are on the Blue Ridge Parkway. you should leave the smokeys behind, and come on over to the Blue Ridge Mountains. The Smoky Mountains are only a very small part of the NC Mountains. Once you leave the Smokeys, and ride the BRP toward Linville, Grandfather Mountain, Little Switzerland, Boone, Blowing Rock, And other places in the NC High Country. You will find much cooler temps, and great views.

RE: Quieting Jenny.. She talks to loud ??

30 couple years of camping. NEVER hooked up to a generator. When we go off grid. I'm ready, and no electricity is required, or needed. that is what propane is for. You're kind of right. My 60 lbs of LPG run my Onan... Doesn't matter. But I like it quiet when I go to a National park CG. the loudest thing we use is a propane lantern. And yeah. you can hear it running as well. but not nearly so much as a Generator of any kind. But as mentioned, ever one does it different. And I bet if you came with me to the BRP CGs. You wouldn't find much need for a generator either. It is always too cool for AC, and too pretty to stay inside anyway. and the CGs are Sooo quiet. You can hear a lantern burn 100 Yd away.

RE: Quieting Jenny.. She talks to loud ??

The honest truth is. There is no such thing as a quiet generator. Especially in a quiet campground. some just don't make as much noise as others Aint that the truth. Even the all hallowed Honda's are noisy if your anywhere close by or if you aren't getting the power from one. For some reason when your the one benefiting from the power the noise isn't too bad. 30 couple years of camping. NEVER hooked up to a generator. When we go off grid. I'm ready, and no electricity is required, or needed. that is what propane is for. Glad that works for you. Everybody does their own kind of camping and nobody's is better than anyone else's - as I'm sure you would agree. Some of us have bigger needs for power and have to rely on more than solar. When I go someplace where I need power. I go to a full hookup CG. All the power I want, and waaaaaaaay more quiet than a generator. BTW. I don't use solar either.

RE: Brake problems

. So jacked up wheel and lever will stop wheel but when brake petal is applied nothing, moved to next axle and same result? not supposed to. IF the brake controller is an inertia based controller. The TV, and TT have to be moving for the brakes to be applied thru the brake pedal. Now if it is a Prodigy, and you have the boost set to 3. The brakes will apply for a instant, until the BC figures out the TV is not moving, then it will release. The lever of course over rides, and sends power to the brakes. But the TV pedal won't. An inertia controller senses how fast the TV is decelerating, and sends the correct amount of power to the TT brakes to mirror the TV deceleration. No TV deceleration, No power is sent. No brakes needed.

RE: WDH Explained - from 1969 - No Rear Wheels

When GM came out with smaller Front WD cars. That was part of their ad. To hookup, and remove the rear wheels and tow. you can lift your trucks rear wheels off the ground as well. You just won't move

RE: Adjusting sway bar?

As mentioned the handle is not the adjustment. The bolt under it is the adjustment. Leave it alone. Unless the pads get really worn. Then you turn / tighten them 1/4 round at a time. 1/4 round is a lot more than you think.

RE: New travel trailer for my daughter..

In theory our old Keystone Outback sleeps ten but it does not live ten. Are some of her children old enough to sleep in a tent while the younger ones sleep inside? It's a camper. It is not supposed to live 10, only sleep ten. With ours. the only time there are 10 in it, is when we go to bed. The rest of the time, we are out side. Campers are for sleeping. Not living MOP, and I'm sticking to it. If I wanted to stay in the camper, I'd just stay home.

RE: Is your Ram towing as Good as it should?

Sucks if the owners didn't get what they ordered but with an 8 speed trans, it's not hard to pick a gear that has the same effective final drive ratio. Ah, but what about 1st. It's going to be much higher too.

RE: Where would you love to camp?

Currently we hope to get to Myrtle Beach next year, have never been there. Down the road I am sure there will be other places. Friends of ours left Mass in January, made there way to FL and went all over the place, a week here, 2 weeks there, spent time in the Keys. They are in TN now slowly working there way hope. They are having a trip of a lifetime. Call NOW. Or you won't get a good site for summer 2016. You can get your ressie now. And if you can't go. Cancel 2 weeks out, and it will only cost you 25 bucks.

RE: Is your Ram towing as Good as it should?

And to save the day, That is all Ram would have had to do. Replace the gearing. Poor customer service is the lesson of this story. ....at this point, according to ONE GUY. doesn't matter how many IF YOU are that ONE guy. I work in the Auto industry, and believe you me. that ONE guy can destroy your reputation, and cost millions in the search to find out what happened. Our PPM is 12. Meaning out of one million parts we had 12 complaints. Every one of them was brought back to us, and we searched until we found the cause. Not all were catastrophic failures, some just had a little something wrong, and some were influenced by the other parts they hooked up to. But they all came back, and we did not stop until the cause was found. BTW 12 PPM is WELL below industry goals. But still more that is wanted at our company. As I say. Even ONE can hurt you, and if you are the one. Your day is ruined.

RE: Is your Ram towing as Good as it should?

Come on folks. He didn't get what he was told he had. They should swap the gears or the axle and flash the truck computer to make it all right. It's cheaper than lawyers and the bad feelings about Mopar it is creating and it would be the right thing to do. Agree:) Ditto. And to save the day, That is all Ram would have had to do. Replace the gearing. Poor customer service is the lesson of this story.

RE: New travel trailer for my daughter..

Top of the morning all- My daughter and husband are looking at buying a travel trailer with bunks for their 7 kids. Does anyone knows what brand name light T.T. that sleeps 9? Her husband likes the Jayco brand. She does NOT care for Jayco,she thinks the interior colors are dark and it is depressing. I will really appreciate any input form you folks. Thank you in advance..:R Jayco White Hawk 28dsbh sleeps 10 easily. But it isn't all that lite. The one I saw had a yellow sticker weight of 5600lbs. On the other hand. My APEX 288BHS has the same floorplan, and a yellow sticker weight of 4811 lbs. Yes it sleeps 10 in comfort, Yes it is light. It is 31' bumper to ball. In truth has 5 full beds. Sofa sleeps 2, Dinette sleeps 2, Bottom bunk sleeps 2, and top bunk sleeps 2, Not to mention my queen in the front. So you see. No need to convert a toy hauler, or anything like that. The beds are already there. We do 10 people for a week at the beach. The wall construction of Azdel gives it light weight, and high R value.
