Another bad RV wreck, driver dead. Montreal.

Not sure how this guy managed to drive over a ferry ramp being lifted, but the result was deadly. Article makes reference to a mechanical problem. Not sure what it was. RV destroyed so bad I can't even make out what it was. My heart goes out to the family. And the woman passenger, in critical condition in hospital. Very sad situation. Montreal ferry RV crash

RE: Likely another ruined Vacation

Sad indeed.. I wonder about the propane leak... Tanks have emergency shutoffs in the event of a sudden change in flow. They do work, I can vouch for it firsthand from when I totaled an old Prowler years ago.

RE: Which shocks?

Shock thread I used this thread for guidance with the same question. 2 nights ago I ordered Bilstein 4600's for my stock 2007 GM D/A dually. From what I've read in the above linked thread, 4600 and 5100 are identical in build and function, with the exception of the 5100s being suited for a stock to 2 inch lift.

RE: Travelling from Calgary to Vancouver

I third Lamplighter. The people there are amazing and over the top helpful. We got towed into Revelstoke last summer after a major engine breakdown on the Roger's Pass. We stayed 2 weeks at the Lamplighter. I just can't say enough good about the owners, their staff and the CG itself. They turned a negative experience into a positive one by being so accommodating for us when we showed up without a reservation. They even helped us get our TT there when we had no tow vehicle after the breakdown. It is a small CG, but they do have several large spots that will fit a 40 foot rig. There are several pull throughs for larger units. Definitely phone yesterday and book something if you want to go there. They may be full already.

RE: Aftermarket stereo in truck? Compatibility questions

Crutchfield is definitely customer friendly. I would also suggest you see if the YouTube channel Five Star Car Stereo has an install video of your application. They're great for identifying wiring locations, installation and wire color and location for your vehicle. I highly recommend. Thanks for the tip, but it came with a schematic of where all the wires go. It was super easy to install, had it up and running in no time! :) Works great!

RE: Aftermarket stereo in truck? Compatibility questions

Update for all you who helped me here: Took me a while to find the time, but I am now a totally sold Crutchfield customer! I had an application issue with their site. I input the model year but it wasn't quite right. Mine is 2007 classic, same as 2006. Anyhow, without boring you with details, I emailed Crutchfield Canada. This is where it got fun. I promptly got an email back from a CSR named Lex. I went back and forth with him more than a dozen times over this application thing. I don't think I have ever in my life had a better customer service experience than I had with Lex. Every email I sent, he quickly and cheerfully responded to. Then I got busy and back burnered the project a few months. When I emailed him back a couple weeks ago, he was right there for me again. I ordered my stereo and install gear for the 2006 application. A few days later it was on my doorstep. Awesome service! A week ago Sunday I pulled my dash apart, pulled the old unit, got out my soldering gun and shrink tube and got after it. The instructions were clear and concise, it was a breeze to hook up all the wires to the stereo pigtail. Color codes all matched perfectly. Got it done, installed it and cranked it on. Wow! Nice! :) Great sound, pairing my phone was a breeze and it works great! Now I have all the functions of a much newer vehicle. I plugged in a memory stick with all my music on it. 2 thumbs up! I had one minor thing, the steering wheel mute button doesn't work. Most likely I misunderstood the instruction about 1 wire. I emailed Lex. He personally phoned me, patched me through to tech support to figure out why! Talk about super amazing customer service! I thank you all for suggesting Crutchfield. These guys are truly in a class of their own. 5 Star, 10/10 rating. I'm a happy guy, got my new toy and it works great. :):):)

Great! Glad to hear you are on your way to the next chapter :)

RE: This happened today

42K plus a bent frame! I wouldn't be towing that either!! I gulped when my truck took a 20K hit to the nose 6 1/2 years ago! But a pickup repair and RV repair sure are 2 different things.

RE: Finding the Missing Cursor

Have you looked on the wall behind you to see if it's running across there? :B

RE: This happened today

OP here.. The adjuster was struggling to get to the mark of total loss but he got there... Not sure why it was so hard... Gee, gotta wonder why he was struggling..... One glance at your pics and it shouts totaled! Pretty easy to figure that one out. I'm sure everyone here can see that. I wonder if he thought somehow it could be fixed?

RE: Burning smell from electrical panel

So here is the skinny...snip Negative screw terminal has some wiggle to it. I’ve noticed that the lights have been intermittently dim with a light flicker from time to time. There is a clue in what you said about the negative terminal; If the main ground wire is loose there, then you will get an increased resistance and it will heat up there. This will cause the symptoms you describe. This needs to be addressed sooner than later. There is a fire potential with a loose ground. Disconnect all power, shore and 12V (I know you have the battery out of the mix, but be sure its not connected.) Then loosen the ground terminal and pull the wire out of it. Check to see if it is blackened. If you have enough slack, cut the end off and bare a new part of the wire, ensuring it is clean and bright copper in color. Pull the terminal screw right out, try to get in where the wire goes and scrape it clean with a tiny screwdriver or similar, scrape the end of the terminal screw too. Put it back together and make sure the terminal screw is very securely tight onto the wire. Really important to have a good solid ground. But of course, if your converter is on its way out you will get this issue too.
