RE: Top RV manufacturers?

Really don't need a rear camera with the large rear window in my 26' Mid Bath Lazy Daze.

RE: Phoenix Cruiser 4x4

Having 4x4 would be nice but I would think the real problem will be the shaking and twisting the motorhome part goes through as you travel down a rough and rutted road. I'm hesitant to take my not 4x4 LD on any rough and rutted roads that could shake it apart. Heck we hit a road construction area north of Tatum, NM that we had to slow down to 30mph because it was so rough!

RE: Washing your hands

Dawn foam does work great but will pull all the natural oils out of your skin. So after using it I have to use skin lotion. FYI my wife makes foaming soap by reusing the foam pump bottles with water and a little bit of liquid soap of any kind. Try it and you'll realize how little soap there is in those ready made bottles. Add a drop of food color and a drop of whatever scent you like if you prefer.

RE: Wow...look out for the tree...

Not my RV but did have a tree fall on my Suburban a few years ago. Driving down a 2 lane road after one of our week long rains this willow tree decides to commit suicide just as I got to it. Luckily I didn't hit my brakes and just the smallest branches and leaves surrounded us as I passed under it as it was falling. The guy behind me wasn't so lucky as he hit the tree trunk.

RE: Success with AC coil cleaning

Just did the same but just laid a towel on the floor in case. I used a 1 gallon pressure sprayer with water to rinse and sucked up the water with the shop vac. No water got inside.

RE: Hooking up to house sepitc

Just as a point of reference we full timed for a couple years at a tractor shed that had 1 toilet + sink and an unknown size of septic tank. Couldn't be too large since it was just a workshop with the 1 toilet. Our Newell had a combined black+gray tank of 150 gallons. We would dump once or twice a week when it got almost full. Never had a problem with overflows. But there was no chance of it back flooding anything.

RE: Brake Buddies, BrakePro, raodmaster, evenbrake ???

I've used Readybrake also but on a Demco towbar. For about $70 you can buy another cable to install in another vehicle if needed, or if you change toads.

RE: Can I double up on wire?

And if the extra wires won't fit on the battery lug then something like this works well: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HZU42Z2/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

RE: Best "shut em down" moment?

A friend just looks at them and says in a firm voice "standby" and proceeds to finish what he's doing.

RE: How Do You Follow Weather Reports As You Travel?

Wunderground used to have a webpage called roadtrip which showed the forecast weather along a route you could set. Worked great while it was available. I used it frequently when planning a trip, sometimes taking a different route would avoid rain, etc. Or just changing the day you leave could avoid driving through bad weather. PLEASE bring it back Wunderground!!!!

RE: Lithium system for larger RV, maybe?

Just be aware these are not LiFePO4 cells but are Lithium Nickel Cobalt Manganese. A very different type of Lithium cell.

RE: Converting 30 Amp Ext. Cord To Hook To 50 Amp TT

Perhaps this is what the OP is looking for: https://www.amazon.com/Progressive-Industries-ADT-230-Cheater-Box/dp/B00C595QW6/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1498314993&sr=8-1&keywords=progressive+industries+30+to+50+amp+rv+adapter I've used this successfully when I had my 50 amp coach to plug into a 30 + 15 amp receptacle to power both legs but at a much reduced current than 50 amps which as we all know is actually 100 amps total.

RE: Zion National Park

A couple months ago took 89 up from Phoenix to 389 then 59 into Hurricane. Nice road. 89A is also a good road.

RE: Big Water to Escalante, UT

Sounds interesting, let us know how the route was.

RE: Why aren't travel trailers made this way ?

There are a few brands that are built using superior materials and better manufacturing techniques. You just have to do your research to find them and be willing to make some compromises on floor plans, styles, and other things if you want one.

RE: Blue Tooth meter, amps, volts, amp hrs, watts. $24 eBay

This may be a better unit: https://www.amazon.com/DROK-Multimeter-Charge-Discharge-Electricity-Overvoltage/dp/B01M5CWR2P/ref=pd_sbs_263_4?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B01M5CWR2P&pd_rd_r=N8Y9VKZADWB7DJAHRWHE&pd_rd_w=cn5RQ&pd_rd_wg=yDl6J&psc=1&refRID=N8Y9VKZADWB7DJAHRWHE

RE: Blue Tooth meter, amps, volts, amp hrs, watts. $24 eBay

Looks interesting. I was about to buy a Victron 700 (I've used it before and works great) but might buy this instead. I'm only interested in seeing SOC as a percentage of battery capacity. Not sure if this will do that but if it can show amps in/out it might work. I can always get a Victron later if this doesn't do what I want.

RE: Tom Tom Go vs Co-Pilot on 10"Tablet

I'm an unhappy Co-pilot user. I've used it for many years on android phones and tablets but with this newest version my Asus 8" tablet doesn't play nice with Co-pilot. Different screens are garbled, also when inputting a destination you better use a zip code since it won't take a town name reliably. I've emailed Co-pilot a few times and there response is "it works ok for us". Well not for me. So I'm looking for a different app and might try Sygic.

RE: No Reservations?

Do state and national parks keep some sites not reservable?
