RE: Advice on RV "carport"

I kept the passenger side/main entry to RV 3/4 open sides so that IN the event of a power outage, I could stay in RV running generator and still have good natural lighting coming into the RV so I didn't feel "boxed in" on all sides. Mine is 12' high all the way across with small gable pitch roof above that. I made it 12' inside dimensions wide and yes, it takes a careful driver to get it straight but works for me.

RE: Muffler for Onan generator??

Update: Installed the Roadkill mats on generator access door to RV as well as the drop-panel door to access inside of the generator itself. Also, put mats on top of generator (as per video link above). I also put the mat beneath my dinette seat which is directly above the generator. I'd have to say it was a minimal improvement....yes, a tad bit quieter, but nothing to write home about. As previously mentioned, it's not a super loud unit anyway, but, was worth giving it the ole college try!

RE: Two-wheel down car caddy .... can I tow with rear wheels up?

Ouch.....apparently I can't even use this vehicle as thought. Manual didn't like towing this way (but didn't mention manual transmission at all in the manual, so, guessing it's also not recommended). Ok, thanks, will just wait on the Solara to be fixed.

RE: Two-wheel down car caddy .... can I tow with rear wheels up?

I've got a 1995 Z28 Camaro with 6-speed tranny so I'll just use that and will eliminate damage to my SL500 which is rear-wheel drive. Thanks all!

RE: Two-wheel down car caddy .... can I tow with rear wheels up?

Googled some info, and, doesn't sound like this is a "smart" thing to do unless extreme emergency......will just make other arrangements!

Two-wheel down car caddy .... can I tow with rear wheels up?

Not sure if I could back my Mercedes up on the car caddy backwards since this vehicle is automatic and leave front wheels on pavement? I know I've seen some vehicles on the highway being towed this way, but, obviously don't want to damage anything. My front-wheel drive Solara is unavailable which is what I usually tow. As long as steering is locked, I don't really see a reason I couldn't tow it down the highway this way....but, smarter folks on this board may know if I'm overlooking something. Thanks!

RE: Muffler for Onan generator??

I ordered a pack of these Roadkill mats and will install next week. Can't hurt to give it a try. Might even install one beneath my dinette bench seat which is directly above the running generator. I've got those silver foam insulating mats in my garage and will use on top of the generator as he showed. Thanks for the link, BOB!!!

RE: Muffler for Onan generator??

Haha.....like that answer!! Yes, mine has never really been a noise maker, but my buddy was telling me it might help. YouTube results didn't show any noticeable successes. Thanks all!

Muffler for Onan generator??

Onan 4000 on my rig and not really a noise issue, but just wondering if anyone has attached a muffler or spark arrestor to the tailpipe? If so, did it seem to be much quieter? Planning on several weeklong trips to the island and may be using it for a/c in September during the daytime and possibly overnight if no breeze. I'm asking because a friend has a truck camper is was told to attach a Cummins spark arrestor and that would drop the noise levels.

RE: Near perfect 2001 Jayco Eagle

The website was etrailer.com for the replacement LED lights and rear tail lights! Super bright lights and good prices! Good luck.

RE: Near perfect 2001 Jayco Eagle

Someone on this site posted the LED website that I used and didn't save it for some reason. Search the site or just post up the topic and I'm sure you'll get that link!

RE: Near perfect 2001 Jayco Eagle

I would put the LED marker lights and rear tail light/backup lights on your rig. Tremendous change in brightness especially backing up! I also put eternal bond tape around each marker hole, cut a small slit to pass electric wire through, then sealed lens with flexible caulk. That way, if a lens cracks, the tape behind should stop most of the water from pushing through due to wind/pressure. Took about 3 hours to do everything and a big improvement.

RE: Near perfect 2001 Jayco Eagle

RE: Near perfect 2001 Jayco Eagle

Now that is quite a find indeed!!!! Those are the types of vehicles I like to find; older year but limited use. If you don't mind sharing, the purchase price would be appreciated!! Just wondering how great a deal you got on the "one of a kind" RV find! :)

RE: 2020 Jayco GrayHawk Prestige 29 MVP Water Overflow?

Probably a quick fix by drilling your own and running the line over to the fill up door. Most parts available at Lowe's or plumbing store. I replaced mine and put an on/off valve in the line so I don't keep loosing water on sharp turns as I've been doing (usually lose 10+ gallons by the time I get to my drycamping site). Last weekend, didn't loose hardly a drop.

RE: Has anyone added an extra water tank to RV roof

Portsmouth Island, NC just south of Ocracoke. Yes, private ferry service (Morris Marina). Costs me $375 due to size. Only 20+ fishermen on the entire 14-miles of beach.....heaven! And, all the beautiful shells you'd ever expect to find. I brought home probably 100 and most just washed up in front of my fishing spot. Conchs, sand dollars, whelks, etc. I think they did hookup the shower for some non-potable water but certainly check before going! A full tank of fuel is definitely a must due to driving on soft sand and using generator in hot weather! I was lucky, most nights dipped into the lower 70's so just opened the windows. There are a lot of FLIES so keep windows closed with screens! If the wind dies down, they appear out of nowhere.

RE: Has anyone added an extra water tank to RV roof

I went to a deserted island for 8 days (no houses/roads) and carried an extra supply of water using 1-gallon jugs of water at $.60/each at Walmart. I just put 15 in the rear storage compartment and 15 up over the front cab bedroom. Extra long filler spout and added to fresh water tank as needed. Worked like a charm and no added expense to try and rig-up a special tank system.

RE: Any Cobra Passport Owners Out There?

All of you "Cobra Boy's" should exchange emails/cell phone numbers so you can reach out to one another if and when the need arises. Sounds like a select few owners and looks like you've all found 3-other guys already.

RE: Are all RV's noisy and rattle?

I put the silver bubble wrap on all the insides of my cabinets, moved the grill to the storage bind below the camper, and put foam padding between the dishes. Used an old flannel sheet and cut to size to wrap around the pots/pans so they don't jiggle. Used to be unable to talk while driving; now it's just like a normal car ride. It's amazing what can be accomplished in a few hours. The screened door was a big culprit...never used it much so I just cut it off the hinges. Keep things out of the shower floor....move them to the center of the bed or above on the cabover bed. Same goes for the kitchen sink!

RE: Hood Cover for Ford E450

Packing/Moving blankets from Lowe's are pretty heavy with built-in padding. Could just release hook latch and put blanket over hood and lower it backdown to secure in place when parked.
