RE: Bicyclist/RV Death

There’s no excuse for running down a cyclist in your lane traveling the same direction. Vehicular homicide open and shut case. So when we were leaving a favorite place there was a mob of bicyclists clustered on the stopped on the narrow shoulder. As I slowed to a crawl as I approached cyclists. The gaggle of riders decided it was a good d time to start peddling. Well one older rider just started riding and fell over onto the road. He was lucky as I saw how wobbly he was and there was no oncoming vehicles. I was able to avoid the cyclist. Scared the **** out of us.

RE: air force one vs roadmaster invisibrake

Look into the RVI3 towed brake system.

RE: Vietnam vets honor a brother 50 years later

Honoring a fallen Veteran is a great thing to do. The families are generally touched by the effort of the fallen Veteran’s friends. Rest In Peace Brother. Condolences to your family friends and fellow warriors.

New RV Park in the Sedona/Verde valley

We saw an advertisement about a new RV Park south of Flagstaff maybe in the Camp Verde or Prescott areas? Anyone know anything about it?

RVI3 TPMS system

Anyone purchase a TPMS system from RVI3? I ordered 10 sensors this past Saturday and paid for 3 day shipping. I know the items wouldn’t ship before Monday and I’m giving them an extra day just because stuff happens. I received an email stating I would receive a tracking number on Monday. It’s now Thursday morning and no tracking number. However their email address is not functioning. Is this sop for this company or a fluke. I have the RVI3 brake system and have not had any issues with it.

RE: RVi3 portable brake

The tablet is nothing more than a gimmick. Once the RVI3 is properly installed the braking is inertia activated over 25/30 mph. Used our tablet on the first trip then put it away.

RE: RVi3 portable brake

Two situtations. 1: You have a "Stable" of cars you tow. OR you change often (IE: Annually) in this case a portable brake system may be the best. 2: You plan to tow the same car a long time... IN this case I would avoid the portable systems as you have to INSTALL them every time you hook up and REMOVE them when you want to drive the towed and A: every install is a chance to screw it up like the dealer did mine B: For a short haul. Tempting to "Oh Forget it" and regret later. We have the RVI-3 and installation of the braking device is about one minute. Not a big deal.

RE: CA, OR Coast

A frustrating issue once in Oregon s the fuel must be pumped into your tank by an employee of the fuel station. The employees put the nozzle in and run the fuel wide open. They generally don’t top off after fueling. Other states don’t seem to care as I always fill the tank to about an inch or so from the fuel cap.

RE: Towing PT cruiser

We’ve flat towed a 2005 PT Cruiser convertible for two years with no issues related to towing. Use Roadmaster equipment. Only things to be aware of is the maintenance on the water pump and timing belt need attention at about the 80k mile mark.

Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk as a towed

We’re looking at a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk as a towed vehicle. The one we have in mind has been used as a towed vehicle and has Roadmaster base plates in place and is on a used car lot. My quandary is there is no connection for the turn signals and brake lights.. He has no idea if it’s installed. Anyone have a background on Jeep Cherokee vehicles and where that connection would be installed.

RE: First class A, tippy feel when driving

We have a 40 ft Class A. Several years towing 5th wheel trailers. Getting underway in the Class A was an experience. I remembered a tip from a heavy equipment operator who told me to NOT LOOK RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU. I remembered that tip and now look at least a couple football fields ahead. The beeping from the lane warning beeping is almost nonexistent.

RE: Feedback on the new style entry steps

We installed the Torklift Glo Step These are still supported by the ground but they store completely outside, so no need to clean the steps. Second reason I like these is I don't have the room to deploy the Lippert or Morryde version when it is stored inside our barn. Very well built and a great company too. Another option to look at. Dan Second the Torklift step system. Adjustable for rise and thread as well as adjusting for slope from front to back.

RE: Can't bring TT home because of neighbors parking in street?

That won't work because there is most likely a regulation against having RVs. So, you'd end up being the one fighting the HOA after the neighbors complain. I didn’t read all the posts but it appeared to me that the RV is allowed to stay in the driveway for packing and unpacking. The RV is NOT stored on the property.

RE: Can't bring TT home because of neighbors parking in street?

Install a back up beeper on your trailer Then spend a few Saturday mornings starting at 7am trying to back your trailer into your driveway. Eventually people will get tired of hearing the beeping and ask you how they can get you to stop or they will be the ones to call the HOA. That’s the best idea yet. Man up, take no prisoners.

RE: I got lied to...

In 2010 we bought a new Ford F-250 diesel. We purchased an extended warranty before the factory warranty expired. When the policy arrived we saw the extended warranty started and ended when the new truck warranty expired. Took a lawyer and a Ford service executive to get it straightened out. Now the extended warranty expires in August 2019.
