RE: what is life expectancy of a tow bar

They need inspection and as a result of the inspection may have to have some parts replaced. I have been told by Blue Ox that a tow bar has a life of about 75,000 miles. I had one that had more than that , was inspected and maintained, but when checked by Blue OX at a rally showed me wear and said it needed to be replaced. I replaced it there at the rally for a rally price which is much better than buying through a dealer. Have a friend that had a Road Master tow bar and he was told about the same thing about his. Not sure there is a hard and fast "rule". Have it inspected by a qualified person and expect some day at about 75,00 plus miles it will need replacing.

RE: Wipers have a mind of their own

Could be any of the above problems. Another possibility is the switch itself. It controls the speed, the intermittent interval etc.

RE: San Diego to Dallas

The southern route is far better than traveling I_40. However, you can still encounter winter weather and road conditions anywhere along the more southern route as well so watch the weather and if possible be ready to stop any hang up a day or so.

RE: protocal at fuel stops

I pull up to the pump. Wife goes in with the credit card. I fuel up then pull ahead so next guy can get to the pump and wait for wife to return.

RE: Well The Time Has Finally Come

Maybe he didn't tell us where they were going because he doesn't know. That's what I love about RVing. Over heard a couple answer this question: "when you leave in the morning where are you going?". The answer: "we are not sure. When we get to the interstate we'll decide whether we go left or right". I have always wanted to do just that now we can and do. Love it! (At least we still do when not visiting doctors)

RE: Rincon East or West

I have never stayed at either park but visited both several years ago. Talked to employees, got tours etc. From that alone it appeared to us they were equal. Our children live on the west side of Tucson so that would have been that we based our decision had we stayed in one of them only reason we did not stay either place was because we managed to get on DM Air Force Base. ,

RE: Tire size.

Sorry , do not know the size but you will be in the neighborhood of $500 to $600 per tire if you go through the FMCA Michelin tire program.

RE: Delta Dental

Seems too cheap. We have delta dental for air force retirees. For two we pay about $70 per month. For that we get two cleaning, two exams one with full mouth xrays. We have no copay. Also get about 50% off other procedures etc up to a max of about $1500 per year.

RE: USAA Towing Insurance

olbombero has several things incorrect. USAA calls the towing company. And in most any place that rates insurance company's USAA is at the top. Another company, AMICA, is right up there with USAA. Everybody comes next.

RE: USAA Towing Insurance

Have USAA insurance, towing etc, for more than 50 years. I or my DW used them mostly for changing tires etc. All our children and driving age grandchildren have used them for every imaginable situation. USAA As has always come through. Don't know specifically about towing but I trust them to perform exactly as they say they will so were I you I would call them and ask.

RE: Equinox vs. CRV – Freeway Ride?

I am a Honda fan and have had accords for years. I like the looks,size etc of the CRV. BUT: I just cannot like the CRV. It is noisey and unless you up grade to get a model with power seats it is uncomfortable (for me anyway). I have tried nearly every year except for the 2015 model and there has been no change to me.

RE: Brake Buddy Failures

Have two friends that this happened , one of them twice. We all bought the BB's at the same place and time. May not be smart on my part but I have not used the break away device for this reason for more than 10 years.

RE: Issues with Toad Pigtail

I think Newmar uses relays for power to the two flights. If so you can probably find them in the passenger side compartment next to the rear wheels. It is a small electrical box and the relays are small square black plug with two pins. They are interchangeable so you can unplug one for the left light and try it in the other. This assumes you have a Sparten chassis and that this is the problem. If it is your problem you will probably have to order one from Spartan.

RE: Brake Sys for 2009 Jeep Cherokee Limited

I have towed 3 different jeeps, 2 older cherikees, and a liberty, all with power brakes and used a brake buddy on each of them. Just be sure to pump the brake pedal 3-4 times after engine is off and before you two it. Brakes won't drag and BB will work fine w/o power.

RE: Honda Pilot Towable???

I think Honda will say the last (Maybe only) year you can two a pilot 4 down is 2005. I understand that some people tow later years because nothing about the vehicle has changed. Just Honda's support for towing 4 down.

RE: Southwest Trip

Hope you are taking enough time to see all there is to do and see even in the things you mentioned. We live in the southwest and have been to most of the places you listed and never gave many of them sufficient time. For example we went back to big bend national park the second time and spent a week just "seeing" it.

RE: trick or treat

We, for the past three years have had enough organized Halloween functions in our community to keep all the kids off the street. In fact there are so many I doubt that parents can even get young ones to all the functions. They are sponsored by our mall, fraternal organizations, churches, civic as well as some private organizations. Where we used to get many now NONE!
