RE: How to hook up a toad to an RV using a tow bar?

Here is what Blue Ox says about leveling the tow bar. "Verify the baseplate attachment tabs are level or no more than 4” lower than the receiver hitch. Adjust with a drop/rise receiver as necessary."

RE: How to hook up a toad to an RV using a tow bar?

I have a Blue Ox tow bar but I suspect the principals are the same. My tow bar assembly is attached to the MH and stays there all season. The toad is driven into position behind the MH. Ideally the tow bars should be level. I use a drop receiver to accomplish his. It seems that different manufacturers have different requirements. Check your tow bar owners manual. I take it back. Clearly, you couldn't leave the towbar attached to the MH or the toad.

RE: Thinking of purchasing

I presume that you are going to have to drive from your camping spot to your place of work. If you have a 5er you will be driving your big TV with something about 10 mpg to and from work. With a MH you can tow a car (toad) and drive that to and from work at about 30+ mpg. Maybe something to consider.

RE: Where did you get your Electrical knowledge?

Not to forget the value of the ARRL Handbooks. You're right. They were my bible as a teenage ham.

RE: bright enough?

In my experience I have found the 3528 LEDs are about half as bright as the 5050s, I also like the warm white. I have also found a big difference in venders on eBay. Whatever you decide on, buy 1 or 2 and try them before buying a whole bunch.

RE: Lighted Water Heater & Pump Switches

Good idea. They probably use an LED and it draws very little current.

RE: More lack of control in Chinese goods

Interesting!

RE: Thinking of purchasing

Most of my friends who fulltime eventually end up in a Class A. If you are single you might be ok in a large Class C, but the available storage in a class A is nice to have.

RE: Where did you get your Electrical knowledge?

Ham radio back in the days when hams built their own gear. College BS math and physics. 28 years in IBM as EE. Not much of that applies to RVs, IBM= Itty-Bitty Machines. Loved tinkering with electronics. Read a lot on this forum.

RE: What Do You Do First?

I usually hook up the power first so the DW can do her thing. Then the water, and then the sewer sometime before I want to dump.

RE: Security While On Long Trip

Like some others, we have a safe bolted to the floor.

RE: Toilet upgrade and chemical question

When I first started RVing I used chemicals, later I decided to see if I needed them so I stopped using them. No difference. Haven't used them since.

RE: BEWARE ... Kissimmee & Orlando - toll roads

Tolls or 6' of snow....the choice is yours. :) :) I'll take the 6' of snow. Makes for great skiing.:B :B And, not a single toll road in Vermont. :)

RE: BEWARE ... Kissimmee & Orlando - toll roads

Thanks for the info. Never been to Florida, one of the few I have missed. Doesn't make me want to go there.

RE: Installing a Piezo Ignitor ???

I did the same mod that Ron posted the link to. My DH loves it, works great. I'm glad Ron had the link, I doubt I could find it.

RE: water pressure reducer

You might also try an Oxygenics Shower Head. They seem to increase the water pressure. That way you can keep using less water and still get a good shower.

RE: ? about braking indicator light.

I have the Blue Ox Patriot brake system. It has a wireless monitor that installs in the motorhome that indicates, among other things, when the toad brakes are applied. It probably requires the Patriot system to work.

RE: hot water heater

Can't think of any reason other than what BTPO1 and donn0128 have stated. If you can't check the heater try turning the circuit breaker for the heating element off. If the propane was on you would hear it.

RE: Majestic 28 Speaker Wire Routing

My 2005 Four Winds 28A routes most of the wiring in the corners between the floor and outside walls. They are covered by a rug covered board angled at 45 degrees. Other wires are routed in the overhead cabinet floors. No idea if yours is the same but they are both Four Winds and the same year.
