RE: Tow Bar In or Tow Bar Out?

I guess I wasn't clear. Wasn't wondering about how to connect but was wondering how to tow, Some folks drove off with the arms locked in and some folks drove off with the arms locked out. I was wondering which way is correct.

Tow Bar In or Tow Bar Out?

Where I'm sitting in this RV park just happens to be the place where everybody connects their toad on the way out. I get to watch 6-12 folks connect up every morning. Blue Ox tow bars seem to be the most popular. However, about half the Blue Ox users latch the arms extended and half latch them compressed before they take off. Does it matter or are half the folks doing it wrong?

RE: Very Quick Jeep Wrangler question

Your best resource is always the owners manual. That's probably accurate for towing but there have been many errors published in Wrangler owners manuals over the last several years. Like Ronald Reagan said, "trust, but verify".

RE: Running the residential refrigerator on the inverter

Ditto what Doug said. I used to own a 2001 Monaco Knight and what he said is exactly correct. Except, on mine the outlet was labeled "Icemaker" and not "inverter".

RE: Handling characteristics of MH.s

. . . the Class A has a 208” wheelbase and a 55 degree wheel cut the Class A is much more maneuverable. Add to the fact that the class A has a short 3” front overhang and a short 3’ rear overhang. . . Something doesn't compute. A 413" long motorhome on a 208" wheelbase has to have 205" (17+ feet) of overhang somewhere. If it has 3" on the front and 36" on the rear, where'd the other 166" (13+ feet) go? Maybe I'm just reading things wrong. Wouldn't be the first time. :)

RE: Monaco 2008-10 class a diesel 38-40 ft

Don't know anything specific but that whole 2006-2010 time frame is a little sketchy. Many manufacturers going in and out of business being bought and sold, merging one with the other. Also the already mentioned diesel engine transitions and changes. Not to say everything in that time frame is bad. I had a 2007 National RV motorhome and it was the best motorhome I've ever had. Just be careful and do your homework.

RE: Water leak from fresh water tank

Sounds like the pipe your referring to is your overflow tube for your freshwater tank. It's possible that your City water fill valve may be malfunctioning and allowing a small amount of water to bypass into your freshwater tank overfilling slowly to the point of it seeping out the overflow. Also, the check valve built in to your water pump can go bad and allow water back into your FW tank when on city water. The best way to tell if either of these is your problem is to totally drain your Fresh tank and then monitor your guages when connected to city water and see if the tank is slowly rising, or just leave the valve open to your freswater drain and watch for a slow drip while connected to city water. Both ways will verify you have water feeding back while on city water. The way I read the OP he is having trouble with water leaking OUT of the FW tank. Not water leaking IN to the FW tank. Am I reading it wrong? I don't have your particular model motorhome and I am not specifically familiar with it but it does sound like a failed or open tank drain valve to me. Possibly the fitting where the tank drain is connected to the tank.
