RE: CR-V Towing Question

Ivan, turn on motorhome ignition switch, go to trailer connector and plug in umbilical cord (mine goes from 7 pin to 6 pin but yours may be 7 pin to 7 pin or other configuration) with voltmeter test the pin connections on the unplugged end of the umbilical cord and find the pin that has 12 volt (most probably the 11:00 or 1:00 position. From there, identify the pin on the towed car that corresponds to the 12v. Take a piece of 10 gauge wire and attach one end to the corresponding pin on the towed connector. Put a piece of wire loom on the wire and feed it through an empty space to the battery. Buy an in line 20 amp auto fuse holder and fuse and attach one end to the wire and the other end to the positive terminal of the battery. Use wire ties to secure the wire in the car. Now remove the fuse, hook up the umbilical cord, turn on the ignition switch in the motorhome measure the voltage between ground and the wire at the fuse. should read 12v. If so, put the fuse back in and you are good to go. Any other questions, PM me.

RE: Jeep Liberty or Honda CRV pros and cons.

I took my previous 2002 on many off road treks in Arizona, Utah and Colorado. Worked fine though be cognizant of frame clearance when going over ruts and rocks, etc.

RE: type of gas for ford V10?

I used the regular in my previous motorhome with V-10, as the octane rating posted varied by section of the country as low as 85.5 and ethanol amounts also varied. Worked fine for 90,000 miles.

have info on Big T Freightliner?

Is is getting near time for my annual maintenance service. Has anyone had experience with Big T in Oxnard? I am wondering whether there are good or bad experiences in covering essential maintenance items and how their costs are.

RE: Yosemite first week in may?

We have been that time in the past. Weather we have experienced had warm sun and snow, though the snow won't last long on the ground. Falls are more vibrant in May, though with this year's drought, don't know what they will be like. In any event worth the trip (we have been there many times).

RE: Help! Yosemite after 40 years

You can line up at the ranger station in Curry Village in the morning to be in line for a cancellation that day. This, however, is a long shot and I wouldn't count on success.

RE: Help! Yosemite after 40 years

Any of the three sites will work but on North pines try to stay on the entrance road sites. The back turns of the roads are quite sharp. Lower Pines has good sites near the water. Upper Pines has many trees across from sites and may cause problems on backing, depending on site selected. http://yosemitecampsites.com/ will show pictures of all the campsites at these campgrounds. You nEed to book sites the minute they come available for the month you want (7:00am SHARP). 41 is a good road (Prevost tour buses use it). I have stayed at both Fresno and Oakhurst Elks. Fresno is easier in and out. Oakhurst lower sites are a tight back in and the upper ones you have to negotiate a narrow road.

RE: toilet flap will not open(thetford).

Camping world had a low cost deal in installation on anything you bought from them. Don't know if it still is in effect. If you are near one give them a call. I believe the installation was around $30.00

RE: How long for your air pressure to drop?

Whenever I stop for the night or longer I purge the air suspension. This should be done before lowering jacks.

RE: Ky, through Canada to Glacier National park

be wary of the "hiding". A few years ago an RVer tried that crossing in the New York area and had his RV confiscated for smuggling. I always give the border agent a list of what I am carrying in the way of alcohol and, when my wife was a smoker, a list of cigarettes. I usually took enough wine for the trip and paid the national and Province duty. I'll pay the few bucks duty rather than take a chance on falsely declaring anything.

RE: CG? Santa Barbara, Monterey, Eureka, Portland, Sandpoint..

You can try Carpinteria State beach or Lake Cachuma for the Santa Barbara area. If you are a member of an Elks Lodge, we have full sevice RV spaces.

RE: Jackson, Ca to 101

Diesel in Ukiah, CA easy in and out north of town center on 101. about 270 mi to Brookings and diesel at Fred Meyer. Also diesel at Fred Meyer in Florence about 400mi, both of which should be in range of your coach. I find Florence prices slightly lower than Brookings.

RE: northern Utah state parks

Also check RVparkReviews.com in that general area. There are several parks mentioned fairly close. Did not check to see which ones may be state or county parks, though.

RE: Who tows a CRV??

2002 and 2012. Both great. With 2012 and nav I had to install a charge line to keep the car battery charged while being towed by RV. Easy job to do and with my MH have a 12v. charge circuit on the 7 pin connector. There have been past discussions on this subject in the dinghy towing section of this forum.

RE: Keeping cabinets and drawers locked while traveling

Home Depot has similar ones that we have used for a long time. Work fine. They are in the hardware section where they have a baby hardware area.

RE: Leaving RV MH Plugged in at Home

I installed 2 solar panels that keep the batteries fully charged and allow dry camping with use of inverter.

RE: My speaker is leaking... ???? Huh?

I had a speaker leak and found the 4 mounting bolts for the roof air were loose so I could turn them with my fingers. Tightened them up to compress the gasket and so far have had no repeat (but then we've had a significant drought in CA) but no leaks through 3 rains.

RE: Direct TV

changing for different dish configuration is easy. There is a selection in the setup menu. Just select the one you are using at the time and the receiver will do the rest.
