RE: Why a Diesel Ranger is better than a RAM as a tow vehicle

Comparing a stock vehicle of one brand to a modified one of another brand is a bit disingenuous. I agree. An I am an engineer at Stellantis!

RE: iPad for Gaia maps?

You can use Google Maps in offline mode too right... Just create your routes, and tell it to download offline maps. Then you can use it without a connection.

RE: ABS light.

The system has an active fault. Scan the vehicle. Find the fault. Correct it. Clear codes. Lights out.

RE: Question about 12V charging on Jeep JL while flat towing

Yes. Otherwise the Brake Buddy will eventually kill the JL's battery. I reccommend simply connecting the charge line in the 7 way connector.

RE: AT&T no more Wireless Home Phone

We gave up on "Home Phones" years ago. And so did the majority of households. It's 100% cell phones for us. Works great, saves money. Have never looked back...

RE: LOCAST Receives Unfavorable Court Rulling

All of those network TV Shows are NOT free. The local stations, cable companies, and re-broadcasters have to pay them a fee. How else can they afford to pay the actors hundreds of thousands of dollars per episode? (sarcasm) Locast wasn't paying.

RE: Fuel leaking from within the generator

Gravity feed or not doesn't matter. When parked on a angle. If the carb float is sunk or needle and seat are stuck open the fuel can syphon right out of the tank. Open up the generator remove the carb and re build it. Or take it to someone who can.

RE: WiFi Camera always late to the action

Nest are the gold standard but expensive. Look at "WYZE" as a cheap alternative.

RE: SEMI cameras

Aware divers know how long and wide their vehicles are. Unfortunately many, many drivers don't. These are the ones who have to leave 20 ft between themselves and the vehicle in front of them at every stop. No need for a camera for a good driver....

RE: Cooling fans for external coils.

That's a great idea. I have a similar setup in my slide mounted fridge flue in our MH. Just keep in mind that you can't use your infrared thermometer gun to measure air temperature. Air is not dense enough, you end up getting the temperature of the hard surface behind where your pointing.

RE: Does closing most A/C vents create back-pressure?

The reduced airflow over the evaporator can cause ice to form, and lead to a possible freeze up which is not good for the compressor. So you'd have to try it out and see if that happens. As far as the blower fan is concerned that offers no issue. Airflow CFM is directly proportional to current draw. Less airflow = less fan current.

RE: Why is the generator cycling??

Check the status of the Inverter/Charger while it's happening. It's probably charging your house batteries.

RE: Any Apple gurus?

Since you don't own any Apple stuff chances are good that you don't have any important information stored in the cloud. Just tell Apple to delete your account completely.

RE: Jeep Grand Cherokee, experiences, thoughts, opinions?

Just got back from a 2200 mile trip towing our 2011 JGC. We've towed our last 3 Grand Cherokees and all have been superlative. Jeep does not design the system to require unlocking the steering column, or having to disconnect the battery. You only have to make sure you get the variant that has the transfer case with a neutral position. Period, end of story, it's that simple. I AM A JEEP ENGINEER.

RE: Aqua Hot & Residential vs. non-R - seeking Info, Dinette too

Residential refrigerators solve the many problems in propane types. Propane types are slow to cool, and have difficulty keeping cool in very hot weather. Also, propane types demand you keep the frig level when parked. If you read enough posts, you will read about many "fixes" to attempt to correct these faults. Residential frig does not have these faults and work in an RV the same as they do at home, and do not use any more energy. RV refrigerators are primarily Ammonia Absorption cycle, not LP. LP is used to power the cycle in the form of heat. So is 12v power. When it comes to actual energy consumption (power used to cool) the Absorption systems are way more efficient than compressor based residential units. But the trend is now to go toward safer technologies for RV's like residential refrigerators with inverters, and large battery banks.

RE: Seeking refrigerator tips... in AZ and heat is hampering...

I have two 12V computer fans blowing air upward in the back of the fridge. They are mounted about half way up the back of the flue. Getting the heat to rise out of the flue is the key.

RE: Ram 2500 CTD and GM 2500 Dmax up the Ike.

Forget the IKE it's a non event. What you want is the real SAE trailer tow grade comparisons. Davis Dam.

RE: Damage while moving

Let your insurance company take care of it. They can deal with him if they want to.
