RE: Best weight distributing hitch with a sway control

Ok, you used the word "BEST". That narrows it down to two units. Hensley Arrow or Pro Pride. Dropping down to "BETTER" narrows it down to three units: Equil-i-zer, Reese Dual Cam, or Blue Ox Sway Pro Dropping even further down to "GOOD" is any of the el-cheapo units that require a separate sway control bar.

RE: Towing a 4cyl Equinox 4 down

“This modification applies only to those vehicles with the electronic transmissions. The 6 cyl vehicles have hydraulic trannies” Just a clarification, do you mean electronic power steering versus the hydraulic power steering in the six-cylinder model? bullydogs1 on 12/14/17 02:08pm Gm says power is needed for the electric steering. The electric steering is what causes the death wobble and you have to stop for it to reset...Jeep Cherokee and Grand Cherokee had this and supposedly you have to spring for a new wire harness...Hopefully they will get it straightened out by next year. Meanwhile my Saturn is just dandy...I think I'll be keeping it longer... Bullydogs is correct.

RE: I want a Sat system

Dish For My RV is a real PIA. Dish customer service is terrible! I always need to call customer service more than once to start service, stop service or program local channels. You know that DISH has a Chat Line on their website, don't you? It is MUCH easier to get info, change locations, tech service...etc. than getting that guy from India/Philippines on the phone to understand what you need/want. I have always found excellent service in a very timely manner by this method.

Good Sam Rallies

Does Good Sam still do the National rallies. I see that there is a "super Show" at Indy next year...but is that a "rally"?

RE: FMCA offers new Verizon Data Plan

Question. What distance can you be from the hot spot and still get service? Ron Depends on your settings. You will get further distance with the hotspot set to broadcast WiFi at 2.4Ghz but will have a stronger WiFi broadcast (usually faster speeds) with the WiFi set to broadcast at 5Ghz. If ANY of the devices you are connecting to the hotspot are not capable of 5Ghz communication, you will need to set the hotspot to broadcast at 2.4. Can you approximate the distance in feet for each setting?

RE: Chevrolet Equinox electric steering

The latest fix to this problem with the GM 4cyl electric power steering vehicles is now to leave fuse #32 in place but remove fuse #16. uh huh. Ron

RE: Brake systems for dinghy

Have you considered Readybrake? If I ever buy a braking system for a towed motor vehicle, that is what I will get, there is no doubt in my military mind! Since the OP already has a toad, I'm assuming he already has a tow bar. If that's the case, then getting a Readybrute Elite probably wouldn't be wise unless the tow bar is old and needs replacing.....then, I too, would go with the Readybrute. If he is going to keep his current tow bar, then I think I would go with the Roadmaster Invisabrake mentioned above. Once installed there is absolutely nothing to connect/disconnect....very similar to my US Gear Unified brake system. Ron

RE: RV insurance!!

He said "Sam's Club" not "Good Sam". Which is it? 1 hour later I got a call from CW / Sams club telling me I didn't complete the application. I think it's pretty obvious he is referring to Good Sam.

RE: Got Hopper up and running in the MH!

Ok, thanks to all... really appreciate it. However, I didn't really explain myself very well. Actually where I have 4 TVs is at home....motorhome only has two. So it looks like using a single hopper/joey/solo node would work ok in the motor home, it would not at home where it would be best if I had two hoppers and two joeys. The only reason I am thinking about this is that with my two 722's, and in my motorhome, they are located in the same cabinet behind the bedroom tv and it gets quite warm in there. I purchase two lap-top coolers that set under each 722 and that helps a little. The cabinet does not have a fan, nor is there an available space to put one. So I thought a single hopper would be a lot cooler than the two 722's, but it looks like going this way will not work for me when the hopper is in my home. Looks like I'll just stick with the 722's until they burn up. Thanks again... really, really appreciate it. Ron

RE: 2018 2.0L Turbo Terrain

I know there is a person on here who has the 2018 1.5T engine (6 speed) and he tows it four down. Was just wondering if the 2.0 (9 speed) could be also. evidently not.

2018 2.0L Turbo Terrain

Is the new 2018 GMC Terrain with the 2.0L Turbo 4cyl, 9-speed towable? I tried Remco, but they only go up to 2017 and I tried Motorhome Mag, and just says come back later. Ron

RE: Got Hopper up and running in the MH!

We have been thinking of swapping our our two 722 DVRs for a Hopper and three joeys. So, if I understand correctly, to use the Hopper in the motor home for two TVs, all I need to do is get a solo node and connect it to the Trav'lers #1 cable and then connect the solo node to the Hopper's input. Then to get separate programming for each of the TV's I would have to dis-connect the current HDMI cable that goes to the front TV and connect that to a Joey and then connect the Joey to the TV. For the rear TV (where the Hopper will reside) I can connect directly from the Hopper to the TV. Is this correct? Ron

RE: OK, Washer and Dryer in your RV...Do you use them?

So most New and roomier Rv's come with a Washer and Dryer or the option. "Most"? Hardly, more like "a few". For those who full time or head out for an extended period I can see the advantage but for the vast majority for whom this sport is recreational camping for a few days or even a couple of weeks a W&D is IMO only further complication one doesn't need. Thankfully manufacturers recognize this and restrict washers & dryers to just a few select models. I think you need to add a disclaimer in your statement. I agree with you when the "rv" is a travel trailer and/or small 5'ers.....but hardly for large 5'ers and motor homes (especially Class A's). I would definitely say "most" large 5'vers and Class A's come from the factory with, at least, a combo washer/dryer, and stacked washer/dryer is becoming more and more popular. We had a combo in our 35' DP motorhome and when we were looking for a larger DP, the stacked washer/dryer was a must have. We don't "camp"... we RV, which means lots of travel and sometimes staying for an extended time at one place. Laundry mats are notorious for having dirty and expensive washer/dryers. I can understand those who do a lot of camping for a few days or a week or two not wanting to have a washer/dryer, but for those of us who use our rv's for rving, a washer/dryer is definitely a plus.

RE: US gear towing brake beeping

Years ago (still use the same system) ours did the same thing. A faulty connection to the toad's umbilical connection was the culprit. Replaced both connectors (toad and mh) and replaced the umbilical cable. No more beeping. Ron

RE: Towing full size P/U with Class C or gas A

Almost all Class C motor homes have a 5000 lbs towing limit. However it may be even less as the limit is determined by subtracting the actual weight (after loaded with equipment, food, clothing, people, animals) from the max gross weight of the motor home. In many, many cases the towing limit will be less than 5000 lbs. Some Super C motor homes will have more than a 5000 lb limit. Some gas Class A's will fall into the same category. I think all diesel Class A's have a 10,000 lbs (or more) towing limit....again can be less depending upon the "actual" loaded weight. Ron

RE: Transfer Switch Questions

There are two large electro/mechanical relays that have a printed circuit control board. The two relays are interchangeable/replaceable.
