RE: Gas pice

Yep. Once you do the RV PLUS Card, the pump will automatically start and will not allow any further cards to be used. Ron

RE: Supplimental Braking Recomendations

Another vote for the ReadyBrake. It's usable with any tow bar, and as said, it's a simple mechanical device with very few parts to fail. Installation is well within the capabilities of pretty much any shade tree mechanic, and hooking up is literally a "snap". Granted the Readybrute Elite is a good system. However, as I mentioned previous, the OP already has a tow bar....

RE: Supplimental Braking Recomendations

Guys... he already has a tow bar. Todd... the the two holes are for the 7 (6) pin electrical connection and also for the breakaway switch. Both need to be replaced (obviously). I would assume that the previous owner had something like a Brake Buddy (or equivalent) or maybe nothing at all. In any case, since you already have Roadmaster equipment, why not stay with them and get the Invisabrake from them. http://roadmasterinc.com/pdf/25-5040-00.pdf good luck in whatever you decide. Ron

RE: Wild toad

Jer, this is a common problem with our 4cyl with electric power steering, Equinox and Terrain toads. Do a search on "death wobble". You'll get a lot of info. Ron

RE: Toilet Alternatives

OP, your plan sounds reasonable and doable. A little plumbing work to connect the two tanks and I'm not sure what would be involved in replacing the toilet with a composting toilet, but that certainly would take care of your problem. I say go for it. Easy for you to say, you're not paying for it. :R I'll say it again - makes no sense to me to ante up for a costly composting toilet just for the purpose of repurposing the black tank as a second grey tank when the simple solution is to just off load grey water by gravity as needed. I'm not saying I would do it, but the OP figured this was the best option for him and his current situation. It doesn't matter what your reasoning is....only what is best for the OP. He specifically stated that he was not connected to a sewer system and the option of "off loading grey water by gravity as needed" does not apply to him unless he has to break camp every three days or so, when he could double the size of his gray water holding system by swapping out the toilet and using the black tank as a gray tank.

RE: what cover with good sam

You should post this question in the Ask Marcus sub forum under Extended Service Plan.....if indeed that is what you are referring to by "warranty". By the way, what is a "strap under the cap"? Ron

RE: Toilet Alternatives

You seem to be mixing up gray and black water disposal. What goes down the toilet does not have any effect on what goes into the grey tank.. The toilet has it's own tank (black) and all the sinks and the shower has it's own tank (grey). You guys are not understanding GT926's post. Need to read it again. he's thinking about converting his regular rv toilet to a composting toilet so that he can convert his black tank (that would no longer be needed with the composting toilet) to another gray tank. He never mentioned anything about his rv toilet going to his gray tank. OP, your plan sounds reasonable and doable. A little plumbing work to connect the two tanks and I'm not sure what would be involved in replacing the toilet with a composting toilet, but that certainly would take care of your problem. I say go for it. Ron

RE: Trailer Brakes

My guess is that it just needs to be adjusted. When I had my TT, I would adjust the trailer brakes so that they would not quite lock up under full braking power. Took me several test trips to finally get all four to do what I wanted.

RE: Holding tank gages

Do you have a black tank rinse device? If yes, then on you next day to travel, empty both tanks and with the rinse device, put about 5 gallons of new water into the tank (use sink faucets for gray tank) and then put into each tank 1 cup of liquid laundry detergent (and with the Calgon if so desired) and travel to your next destination. The sloshing of the soapy water in the tank will act as an agitator and remove all debris from the sensors. Once at your destination, empty both tanks and put more clean water back in and use the system as you normally would. Repeat this procedure every time you travel and I assure you that your tanks/sensors will function as designed. Ron

RE: 128 vs 395

I don't understand. 138 doesn't go to Ridgecrest. Granted 395 is pretty much a boring road, but going 138 to Palmdale/Landcaster and then Hwy 14 to 178 to Ridgecrest isn't that much better...if any at all. Ron

RE: California road trip - updated w/ pics

Going up 395 this time of year is a beautiful driver (just did it a week ago). Where in Oregon would you be headed? Lots and lots to see up there. We are currently on the coast at Newport. Ron

RE: Quality

I had a CoachmEn travel trailer prior to my first motor home, and I'm sad to say it wasn't of a high quality build, but did serve its purpose.

RE: Electric problem

Vance, what kind of rv do you have. If you put it in your signature, then you will get more specific answers directed towards your particular rv. Ron

RE: Fresh Water Tank fill ideas?

Don't you have a female hose connection to attach a garden (white one) to fill the tank? If yes, just put the bleach in the hose. Ron

RE: Half of 120 volt buss is dead

I would first check the transfer switch output lugs to make sure you have 120 on both L1 and L2. I have checked the voltage on both L1 and L2 wires coming into the 50 amp breakers and they are both 120v. Sorry, you didn't read my question correctly. I asked if you have 120 on both "output" lugs (terminals)....not the input. And for further info, I'm speaking of the "relay" inside the transfer switch...not the breaker box. Ron
