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.

Considering a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk as a towed car. Any ideas about who makes good base plates.

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.

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

Didn’t have the time to read all the posts and as a result a couple avenues weren’t read. First, is there room on your 234ft driveway to build a “garage” for the RV and leave it in your driveway (upside, no storage fees, out of sight, downside is the onetime construction cost). How much and how flat is your land.

RE: Dish Antenna

The Winegard Playmaker is setup to work with the Wally only. Maybe that's what you are referring to. Have a Wally and both the inmotion roof antenna and the carry out work.

RE: Adopting older "kids"

We volunteer at a small dog senior dog rescue. Somehow we ended up with 7. Traveled with 6. Next month we see how 7 do.

RE: St. George UT

Temple View is almost as packed as a sardine can. On the plus side staff is helpful. Willow Wind in Hurricane is cleaner, paved streets, concrete pads, lots of mature trees for shade if you’re going in the summer. We stayed there last year (2018).

RE: Hwy84 near Pendleton, Oregon

Super, thanks everyone. At first I did not understand Fleet Man's comment about pumping your own gas, but after some research know I understand. Never been to Oregon so no experience. Looking forward to this trip. Thanks again, Dave Several years ago I stopped for fuel at the Casino. Started fueling when an employee came out and walked toward my. I then realized the employees must pump the fuel. I apologize for jumping in. The employee said “no worries, we use Indian rules” he then turned and went into the office.

RE: Motorhome to 5th wheel

We’ve had 5th wheel RVs for several years. After a trip from the California Central Coast to Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, several more states then back home. On our arrival my wife locked herself in the computer room. Came out and announced that the 5th wheel is going and we are getting a Class A. The reasoning is grabbing a snack, water, wife going to the restroom, dogs have more room and ease of setting up breaking camp. Instead of carrying around stacks of plastic blocks, moving back and forth to level side to side, then front to rear. Now just two buttons and wait. Heated tile floor, 10k genset, residential refrigerator, nice tiled shower, larger closet, bath and a half.
