RE: Stand-alone GPS or smartphone?

The other benefit of a stand-alone GPS unit, is that you don't have to mount your phone to use it. Continuous display will quickly drain a phone's battery, so you also have to plug it in. -Joe yep, a good reason for a stand alone. bumpy

RE: Keyless vehicles

can I "assume" that those who consider the "greatly enlarged" key fob to be unacceptable, dumped their large smart phone for a nice small flip phone? bumpy

RE: Keyless vehicles

I really like the old ones better, they are now $5 to $10 each and easy to program. I was pricing the "old" ones and the amazon ads are a trifle misleading, some of the $5/10 ones are the empty cases only. and easy to program???, I checked that out and there are multiple steps,etc. involved and there was a warning that if you messed up, then it called for a trip to a Lock$mith $$$$ to correct. had the statement "DIY step by step self-programming instructions included, some vehicles require dealer or locksmith programming" bumpy

RE: Keyless vehicles

If you all like them I don't really care. To me they are a "convenience", and one I can easily live without. Complexity in all things is not necessarily a good thing. Free country, don'cha know. have you/do you own a vehicle now that uses one? a 1939 hupmobile won't have these modern conveniences. other conveniences that are not in your hupmobile are electric windows, intermittent wipers, air conditioning, etc. try some. bumpy :)

RE: Keyless vehicles

it is obvious to me that the "naysayers" have never had a "modern" vehicle. :) bumpy

RE: Keyless vehicles

Now that trucks tire PSI lite is on. Annoying and found that the battery in the sender is most likely dead and the tire bead has to be opened to put in a whole new sender, the battery is built in my PSI light is on in my 2011 highlander, has been on about a year. supposedly position # 1 is the problem. will "fix" that when I get new tires. bumpy

RE: Keyless vehicles

Just gotta love the "convenience" of those "keyless" locks that need a backup key "just in case". If you have to carry a key in addition to the fob, why bother? much nicer/handier/easier to have a keyless entry/start/etc. system. wave hand to unlock/lock. and you aren't carrying the key in addition to the fob, it is part of the fob. and for the past 20????? years, I needed the key in addition to the fob to start the vehicle. bumpy

RE: Drinking Campground Water...

But I’ve yet to find water that was terrible! The best water I check out Iowa City, IA., in the spring or Tyler MN anytime. bumpy

RE: Drinking Campground Water...

I am thinking of an RO system but don't like the waste involved. If you plumb the RO waste water (aka brine) so that it flows back into your water holding tank, then there's zero wasted water. I've used this method for several years as it was recommended by the RV Water Filter Store (called the 'Boondocker Option'). that might be feasible for a small system, i.e. feeding the separate drinking water faucet , but not for a full house system. bumpy

RE: Drinking Campground Water...

He's now defending that action in court Which means It can not be further discussed here as they have a rule about discussing court cases. . I have my doubts about that. bumpy

RE: Stand-alone GPS or smartphone?

I loved MS streets and trips--but I don't think it runs under win 10. Win 7 now has some vulnerabilities. I use MS S&T 13 on win 10 (IIRC) bumpy

RE: Adding a dedicated RV power plug. What would you do?

Does anybody ever NEED 50 amp to their RV when at home? And does anybody know if the 30 amp and 20 amp are on the same leg (in phase)? Not needed unless you plan on using it as a spare bedroom/etc. in the summer. I would run the extra "red" wire however just in case but sized for 30 amps for the distance involved. bumpy

RE: Tow Dolly ??

Mike, you should consult with the actual owners manual. In some cases there are some vehicles that can be towed all 4 down but not on a dolly. Your owners manual will tell you all that information about towing and how to setup it up. I'd start there so you have the facts. best advice ever. my 2005 Vue AWD can be towed 4 down, don't know about yours. bumpy

RE: F53 vs P30

the old P30/32 AKA breadtruck, was dreadful. overloaded on the front. the early workhorse was merely a rebadged one. bumpy

RE: Freshwater tank question

no on the grey water tank. there should be a pipe from the FW tank at a low location and valve/cap on that. bumpy
