RE: Selling RV, urgent help needed on proper process California

A side note for any vehicle transfer in California. The license plates on your registered vehicle are yours. Take them off of the vehicle and physically surrender them to the DMV. This forces the new owner to register the vehicle in their own name and in a timely matter. Simply submitting the title transfer online does not fully remove you from liability of the vehicle. If you don’t take this step, the new owners can then operate the vehicle under your plates that are attached to your name. Toll evasion is the one issue that comes to mind but a crime committed can also wreak havoc for you. This information was told to me by an employee at the DMV. From the DMV website Does the NRL (notice of transfer and release of liability) remove my name from the vehicle record? No. Only the buyer’s application for transfer, using the endorsed title received from you, can remove your name from the vehicle record. Per dmv.ca.gov: Generally, license plates remain with the vehicle they were issued to. Certain types of plates (personalized environmental, special recognition, or special interest) can be reassigned to another vehicle upon request by the owner and payment of appropriate fees. Sure, you can remove the plates, but the buyer may not be appreciative as they will not be able to legally drive the vehicle home without those plates. If you are that concerned, then go in to the dmv with the seller and do the transfer. I was simply forwarding the information that was told to me by an actual DMV Employee when I last did a vehicle sale. Sorry for trying to be helpful.

RE: Decal replacement

The best way I found to remove the decals was with an Eraser wheel. And it removes the adhesive at the same time.

RE: Cool New Cat Scale App

This is from the CAT Scale app. Please note: The CAT Scale Weigh My Truck App is only available for Standard weighing. If a Split-axle or Double weigh is required, please use the CAT Scale Intercom.

RE: Water fill connection fitting

Check McMaster Carr. https://www.mcmaster.com/ If they don’t have it, it probably doesn’t exist.

RE: [SOLVED] Bad converter? Low voltage

Verify voltage at the converter as time2roll suggested. If good then check voltage at the cigarette lighter. That could be your problem. Or try connecting to a different power source to see what you get. Check cheap simple things first.

RE: w22 fuel pump

Drive the rv up on some blocks to gain some working space. Empty the tank of most of its contents. Using a floor jack with a 2x4 or 2x6 on it to support the tank, unbolt the tank and slowly lower it down. I tried both metal and plastic fuel line removal tools and neither worked for me. I ended up using a small metal pick to release the tabs on each line. Once everything is disconnected, removing the actual pump is simple. Make sure the top of the tank is clear of debris. I had a handful of walnut shells on mine from some friendly squirrel. Having an extra set of hands is always helpful. Good luck. Let us know how it turns out.

RE: iPad as a GPS device

I recently got a wifi only (non-cellular) iPad. Is there a way to tether the iPad to an iPhone to enable using it as a GPS device? Just found this after I posted my response. “AirLocation is an iOS app that sends GPS data from your iPhone to your Wi-Fi-only iPad. To use it, you activate the Personal Hotspot on the iPhone, connect the iPad to the hotspot and run the app on both devices. Now you can use proper, accurate GPS data to track yourself on the iPad's large screen.” https://www.wired.com/2011/04/airlocation-sends-gps-data-from-iphone-to-ipad/ I couldn’t find the actual app anywhere but it did lead me to numerous other posts both on the internet and YouTube about how to accomplish what your trying to do. Hope this helps.

RE: iPad as a GPS device

I have a slightly different setup than what you are asking. I use a Garmin GPS receiver and connect it to my iPad via Bluetooth. Then use any navigation program you want. I get the large, easy to read screen and great useable features without relying on cell service. I have read that an iPad with cell capability has the gps chip built in. And you do not have to pay for an extra phone number. But to answer your question, I have not tried to connect my iPhone to my iPad for navigation. Only for hotspot use while camping. Good luck.

RE: Walkie Talkies

https://www.ruggedradios.com/ My son uses them when dirt bike riding and said they are amazing. Kinda pricey, but you get what you pay for.

RE: Removing Old Decal's

3M eraser wheel is the best, I think. Doesn't cost much The eraser wheel will also remove the adhesive. Win Win situation.

RE: Negotiating Trade-In

There is a group on Facebook that may be able to help with your transaction. RV Pricing and Appraisal For a fee they can give you an accurate appraisal of what your trailer is worth. I have not used them but have read good things about them. Good luck with your purchase.

RE: RV Insurance

I have Good Sam. The insurance through them is National General. Have only used them for a windshield replacement and they were very attentive and thorough. I also have the Good Sam road service. Have used them four different times and each time they were very good. Good Sam does send out A LOT of advertising junk Mail. Just sayin.

RE: Broke down on the road, what's your insurance experience?

Your going to get answers all over the board with this one. I have National General for insurance Good Sam for Roadside Assistance and have had good luck with them. Twice with my RV and twice with my personal vehicles. With Good Sam you contact a call center ( number is on your card ) and give them your situation. They then contact a local tow company to come help you. Wait times may vary based on your location and how busy the tow company is. You pay for the tow and submit receipt for reimbursement. I know you have an RV Rider on your policy, but double check to make sure it covers your specific vehicle. Good Sam switched up RV plans a few years back and the cheapest plan did not cover Motorhomes but covered tow trailers for roadside coverage. It was all over the forums and I think they finally got it figured out. Some RV riders do not include roadside service for RVs, from what I have learned here on the forums that’s why I say to double check your policy. If you don’t have cell service, then that’s a whole different problem. I always have a tow vehicle with me so I can go get help or cell service if needed.

RE: fantastic fan just stopped

My fan does the same thing. Right next to the speed control is a screw in fuse holder. Over time, my fuse holder springs started to lose tension and create an intermittent connection. To fix this you need to stretch out those springs a little and reinstall the fuse. This worked for mine. Maybe yours is the same.

RE: Windshield gasket leak

The rubber gasket at the top of the windshield over the dash on the driver's side has a slow leak. How do I address this? If your windshield is glued in place like a lot are, the gasket is just a trim piece. You can take some windshield sealant, available at most auto part stores, pull the rubber back and squeeze the sealant into the suspected leak area. During my recent windshield replacement, It was amazing at how many voids ( lack of sealant) there were on all sides of the windshield. Overall poor quality workmanship from Fleetwood.

RE: WINDSHIELDS ... for older Class As ? ......

RV Glass Solutions is a sister company of Coach Glass, arguably the largest supplier of OEM specialty vehicle glass in the US. Just had my windshield replaced by them. 2001 Fleetwood Flair. They were very easy to deal with and they even found a mobile installer that came to my home.

RE: Cell service at Trailer Village Grand Canyon?

I have a picture, from many years ago, our teenage son walking along the south rim trail texting. All I could do was shake my head and continue on. How about calling the park itself. They may be able to give you some valid information regarding cell service in the park.

RE: iPad for Gaia maps?

I recently bought a Garmin GPS receiver and used it with my iPad. Works great. My iPad is not cellular capable and does not have the internal GPS receiver. That’s why I went with the external receiver. And now I can actually see the map while driving. Finding a mounting location was the biggest challenge.
