RE: Windshield Shade

Have had quick shades for years and have had great luck with them. If I wanted to spend some reasonably big dollars I'd have magna shades. Can buy lots of u quick shades for the cost of the magnet ones.

RE: Switching to 4-flat towing

Have been towing with blue ox tow bars and base plates for 20 years. Had three tow bars. One I upgraded due to increase in weight, one wore out, now on the yhird. I'm not going to any other brand.. mileage should not register/ increase.

RE: Salt Lake City, Utah

When we were there we stayed at a KOA that was down the street from the temple grounds. A shuttle took and picked us up. The other direction down the highway was the great salt lake. We never found anything else we thought was interesting enough to go to.

RE: Senior pass increase

I read today the increase was to be effective on 1 Aug. (Read it on the internet so it must be true). I really did read that.

RE: Does anyone know of a program similar to Streets & Trips?

I still use the old Streets and trips for the "big picture" routing, ie town to town etc. I then use an up to date Garman GPS for what I call the refined portion of the planning for specific routing, RV parks , attractions along the way etc. Works for me. Just about the same way I used to use streets and trips anyway.

RE: C-Pap power usage

I use a res med vpap. I called Res Med and was told I could operate my machine (two different models over the years) on 110 volts RV modified sign wave inverter. They did say to remove the water tank or shut it off.(depends on the model). I've used it this way many times over the years when we are not plugged into electrical power without problems.

RE: DP Purchase Advice Needed

I'd go for a lub, oil, and filter at a minimum. Tires are another story. Doubt you will get new tires but if this is a used unit I'd try very hard for tires. I bought a new, one year old left over model. It had been setting on dealers lot for a year. As it was new the tires had a tire company warranty. One year later the two steer tires had large cracks in sidewalls. After getting them inspected at a truck tire dealer Michelin paid 90% of the replacement costs. Truck tire dealer could not believe it. I would expect tires are st least degraded.

RE: Tiny Houses

Probably like any mobile home. Most states anyway one either pays the state for a vehicle / trailer type registration or pays real property tax. If that is the case it could be whichever one wanted.

RE: Plugging into 110

Presume you are talking about plugging into a 15 or 20 amp outlet. If your RV allows you to change the amp rating of the outlet your plugging jnto, lower it so that it does not to try to charge the batteries at a rate that will exceed the amperage of the circuit / outlet.you just cant run much of anything in your RV other than keeping batteries charged, lights etc. We've done many times with no problems.

HELP, How to prepare 2017 Jeep wrangler to tow

Need help from 2017 Jeep Wrangler owners. Just bought a 2017 4 door. The owners manual tells me how to "prepare it to tow". These instructions are the same as the last 3 jeeps I owned, no problem. The manual goes on with instructions how to "prepare to drive". These instructions says "RECONNECT THE NEGATIVE BATTERY CABLE". My problem is, it never says to disconnect but does say to reconnect. Dealer is no help, Jeep customer service says their manual,on a computer, does not say anything about disconnecting the battery so my manual is wrong. Do need to disconnect. Then customer service rep's supervisor says if my book says that,I better disconnect it. Anyone tow a 2017 wrangler and how do you prepare it to tow?

RE: Toad wagging MH

I towed a 2001 liberty for 12 years and many thousand miles and never experienced what you described. You might also have the front end allignment checked. I should be a great tow vehicle.

RE: Generator

Yes there are many instances over the years where a generator that does NOT have auto start, starts anyway. Happened to me in the middle of the night. The fix then was to unplug the connector that comes from the generator to the rest of the coach,(near the generstor) clean the many pins in the connector and seal with an electrical grease when you plug back in.

RE: Social Security Question

As I recall it could take as long as 2 months. I believe you get your check in the month following the month for which you are paid. If I remember correctly you have to have been on social security for that month plus processing time. Plus the time of the month you receive the check is based on the day of the month you were born, IE 1st, 2nd, 3Rd wednesday of the month.hopefully I remember correctly and haven't confused you too much.

RE: tow 2015 Silverado

I tow a crew cab silverado with my listed motor home. Don't think a 35 foot gas coach is rated to tow that much weight. I've had 3, 35 foot gas class A's.All had 5000 pound rated hitches, but the silverado is heavier. One can weigh it to make sure, but once you get all the "extras", bigger engine, 4x4 chassis etc added up I'm pretty sure you are over. A friend weighed his 2003 at just Under 5400 pounds.

RE: Great destination if you like airplanes!

For history and or airplane affexinados if you are in the vacinity of Dayton Ohio stop in and visit the US Air Force museum. To see everthing plan on at least two days. My DW and I took 3 days. Our traveling companions who are total military history "nuts" spent 5 days taking in everything. Price is right also. Nothing.

RE: Big City

Info for Two Jayhawks. I might agree with you about driving in Denver had I not driven in Houston. Houston tops the list for worst traffic an especially least courteous drivers in my experience so far.

RE: leaking faucets

The above reference to yesterday's thread is good. I might add, do not buy any faucet from an RV store. They are cheaply made. You can also get cheap faucets at Kmart and Walmart. My recommendation is go to a hard ware store and get a good faucet, one not chrome plated plastic and one you can buy replacement parts for in the future if needed.

RE: Rv resorts in or around dallas

If open we stayed at Hickory creek CoE park just off I-35 E in Carrollton texas. It is just north of Dallas and is a very nice park. In the past it as been closed due to high water in lewsville lake.

RE: Dolly, Flat Tow or Trailer best way to Alaska

Make sure you do not have a full width mud flap that is set too low to the ground. If it is too low and hits the ground as the coach travels, the protection will become the cause of many rocks flipping up into, onto and in every possible place on your towed vehicle.
