RE: C Tables ??

We took a couple of storage cubes something like this and made tops out of plywood. I covered them on one side with vinyl and the other with felt. One holds manuals/books and the other remotes etc and doubles as a table or a footstool.

RE: Finally got one

I got one when I started towing a car for a just-in-case. I used it a dozen times when the toad battery went dead on a leg. really glad I got one. The one I have also has USB ports to charge phones.

RE: site problem

The rv.net portal had this issue last month and was fix or cleared up. I'm seeing it regularly on the motorhome.com portal lately.

RE: Sink covers on or off

They just look nice at an RV show. I don't think we've ever put ours in. The portable ice maker sits in the sink when we're traveling.

RE: Prepping for sale

Mine came with sewer and water hoses, 2 power cables and a few dogbones. I've accumulated a bunch of stuff (spare parts, screws, light bulbs, hardware) that I would just leave with the bus if I were to sell. Right now it looks like it will go to a relative.

RE: How to wire 6-6V batteries-Oh yes, I'm still here

Use this app to post pics. As to the double wires going to the battery bank, my guess is that the reds and blacks are connected somewhere down the line. Something like boths blacks going to a single ground lug and both reds going to the inverter. If so, then connect 2 six volt batteries in series (one positive to one negative), then 1 red to the other positive and a black to the other negative each set of 2. https://i.imgur.com/USfiYN4l.png

RE: Beginner RV Owners and the Sonora Pass

TomTom taking me down a 13% grade in the Catskills taught me that lesson early on. Get a trucker's atlas and use it to check any route the GPS gives you. Also, Google Earth has a profile feature. Set a route and right click on the blue line. It brings up the route profile. Looks like this. https://i.imgur.com/oOGysUBl.jpg

RE: Rvers beware

And then there's this going on in Seattle where "entrepreneurs" buy old run down RVs at auction, park them on the street anywhere and rent them out by the night.

RE: dumb problem with blue ox tow bar hookup

The heads on those lynch pins are not symmetrical. They only go in one way (correctly). You can jam them in the wrong way and have the problem the OP had. Incorrect https://i.imgur.com/2m0fSZbl.jpg Correct https://i.imgur.com/s5ZOPw5l.jpg Those locking pins are great until they load up with road grime.

RE: Happijac Motorhead Motor Bearing Part No.?

If it is a 182515 kotor head, I found gears on eTrailer. There are some kits there, but it's not clear if they include bearings. They also list a replacement motor if that's an option. Every time we have to deal directly with Lippert it's a challenge. The only thing worse is sitting in Dometic's queue.

RE: snowbirding

We enjoyed parks in the panhandle as well. There's a different feel in that part of Florida. We really didn't enjoy the W.Palm area at all. You spend most of the time waiting for the left turn signal. Sarasota was nice, but once again way too crowded. FL parks have gotten a lot more crowded than when we did our Gulf Coast trip in 2015-2016. In general, the further south of I-4 you get, the more expensive it is and the less available the sites are. In the panhandle- HoHum in Carabelle, Topsail Hill SP in Santa Rosa Beach. In MS, Buccaneer SP in Waveland.

RE: Pulling TT through Newport Rhode Island

Sure, just avoid the water front. Hit the Jamestown and Newport bridges and take state route 114. There are a few places to stop along the route where you could stop and unhook, but if you have an extra day or 2, stop at Fisherman's State Park on Point Judith and drive the tow vehicle to Newport for the day. The run up from the Newport Bridge to route 24 and I-195 to i-495 north to Normandy is an easy drive. The Breakers is probably the best mansion tour.

RE: A request from your new mod

It’s been a very long time. It appears that we have a new moderator, who is it. Chet (sleepy) Well, that intro post was a over year ago. I hit a few bumps but it's still all good. One of the issues I ran into is the snob factor in this group. That, plus the assumption that because I own a motor home now, I never had a TC. I've asked several of the more critical members here to step up and take over, but there have been no takers. WYSIWYG.
