RE: One lane, two-way?

Not sure about more modern times but in years past some mountain states had a law. The person coming down the mountain was required to back up. Never expect a driver to back down a mountain.

RE: Air conditioner efficiency

I would think that not having to cool the ducts, and even if well insulated,the space the ducts run through, would provide considerably more cool air to the living area.

RE: Looking seriously at a 1999 DSDP3884 Dutch star

If the tires are 22.5, which I think they are, they are not cheap. For michelin tires you can double the total cost stated above. I replaced the steer tires this morning. Mounted and balanced cost $600 each through the FMCA/ Michelin advantage tire progrsm. Smaller tires will be less.

RE: America the Beautiful passport.

Reading this make me think. I've been enjoying the old $10 Golden Age Passport card nearly 15 years. I'm going to keep on enjoying it. Now that's a Bargain.

RE: Lights Control Television Reception

Flourscent lights or more specifically the ballast in them can cause electro magnetic interference (EMI). It can do exactly what is happening to you, shuts down the TV. I understand that LED lights can do the same. I had the same thing happen to me with flourscent so I changed to LED and have had no further problems. The specific flourscent light causing the problem was due to a ballast going bad. Had no problem until the ballast started to fail.

RE: How far are you willing to travel?

Not full time, but retired and normally no schedules. We try to be on the road no later than 9am and stop no later than 3pm. Miles do not matter too much.

RE: Towing wrangler battery questions

No one really answered the question about keeping battery from running down. When the ignition is off there should be no drain on the battery. If you are using an outlet in the jeep to power an auxiliary brake the only time you are using power is when or after the brake has been activated. Using a brake buddy I have towed for as long as 4 days without starting the towed vehicle and have never run the battery down to the point it would not start, I never even think about it anymore

RE: Towing wrangler battery questions

The guide that came with my 2017 wrangler says to turn key to accessory when hooking up. It also says to reconnect the battery after towing. Jeep has been no help, but the manual that is only available on the internet doesn't mention either one of those items.I haven't towed mine yet but it is set up to do so. I'll follow instructions from the manual i downloaded from the internet. I use a brake buddy and to power it I have to plug it into an outlet in the console that is always "hot". The outlet in the dash is only on whern the ignition is "on" or in "ancessory" position.

RE: Replace old TV antenna

There is no special antenna needed for digital signals so your antenna should work. As others have said check the amplifier. Also check and if needed replace the coax on the roof. It can become weathered, cracked etc.

RE: Lesson Learned!!

Guy I know who speaks from experience says not "if" you have a leak, but "when" you have a leak. I listened to him but had a leak while on city water in evening why we were in RV not only do I turn off when not in, but use a battery powered water leak alarm in areas that can leak. I know quite a few people who have "experience".

RE: TV Problem?

X2 on sch911's suggestion to look for electro magnetic interference. Start Turning other things, especially lights, off to see if it has any impact on the tv

RE: Fan Controller

Not sure but I think the fan runs all the time when the acnd is on. Pretty sure mine does. In fact the engine runs a little cooler when the acnd is on,

RE: Bedroom slide fixed

A bad blast would take our TV picture away. Turn on the light and TV WENT black. Turn light off and TV was back on. LED light replacement was just slightly more than a new balast. Now all flourscentlights are gone.

RE: Big gust of wind pushes TT and Truck

Probably a dust devil. One hit us once and moved the motor home from one lane to the other. They are like mini tornados. I doubt the wind farm had anything to do with it. Lots of them in the southwest. If I see a dust devil forming or approaching I slow down and grip the wheel

RE: delaminated skin

I have no experience doing this but saw and independent RV tech who was doing exactly that with a pretty large side in a 5th wheel. Looked to me like he was basically rebuilding the slide even though it was still in the 5er, so I know it can be done.
imgoin4it 07/22/17 02:25pm Tech Issues

This subject is close to my heart. Just bought a 2017 wrangler sport unlimited. With the jeep, comes an users guide. The guide instructions tell you to leave the ignition switch in "AC" position to tow and after towing to reconnect the negative battery cable. Only problem it never says to disconnect the battety. The users guide tells one they need to check the owners manual that is available on line. Those instructions are different from the guide. But that is the "bible" I've called jeep customer service about the discrepancy to get clarification. They say they'll get back to me within 2 days. 2 days later I get an email saying they need to call me. Will call in 2 days. 4 days later I call them. They say they called and tred to leave a voice mail. NEVER HAPPENED. They tell me poc will call me. Again NEVER HAPPENED. One lesson. No good manual in the vehicle to look at before buying. Second lesson Jeep factory customer service lousy. They can only read what computer says. I've checked mine. Can tow and I'm still checking to see if I need a power line from coach to jeep. Don't think so. GOOD LUCK. I do love the jeep though

RE: The guy 2 sites down, with the super strength bug zapper!

Just for information. Some species of mosquitos are not attracted to the zapper and some are. One needs to know which species is which to know if they effective for them. Most are attracted to human carbon dioxide, but again not all.Don't remember the details but info comes from being responsible for mosquito control on an Air Force Base for about 30 years. Not the most liked responsibility. How'd you like to control the bite when mosquitoes feasted on 7000-15000 people?

RE: Strange AC cycling?

Have no idea other than a guess. Sounds like it is measuring the temperature from the return somewhere rather than room temperature. So temperature is "SATISIFIED" and shuts off. A short time later the fan starts to "measure" the temperature and it still satisfied so the compressor does not start and fan shuts off. I have an atwood 15,000 BTU that does same on heat pump. Love it on acnd but heat pump drives me crazy and will not get the room temperature up satisfactorily. Per atwood that's the way it was designed to work.
