RE: Geocache of a mysterious nature in Utah

Somebody just saw a rerun of 2001 a space odyssey.

RE: Do You Trust Hitch Locks?

I really don’t like those “flip ring” hinge pins. I have 3 tractors and buy those things by the handful at tractor supply. Over time those rings will pull loose. On the tractor, not much of a problem when the bush hog slips a pin. Going down the road with a toad?

RE: Do You Trust Hitch Locks?

Go to tractor supply and buy D handle pin hitch pin with hole already drilled, makes it very easy to remove if you have too. Then use a pad lock to secure

RE: TST 507 cap o rings

Visit harbor freight if you have one. I bought a box of O rings, all sizes, really cheap. Sure there will be some in it that will fit.

RE: Need a device part II

Wa8yxm, this is a smart car and the brake pedal comes up from the floor, not suspended like most are. Those wires are under the floor, somewhere. Yes, it would be a shorter run if I could have found them. But thanks for the response. Now looking at some way to suction cup something to temporarily hold the new light up to the windshield while being towed so I can see it better.

Need a device part II

First thanks to BOBBO for understanding what I was trying to say in my first post, and a solution. Never realized that the 3rd brake light is somewhat “independent” in operation from the 2 regular brake lights. My solution might have been easier than his. I just pulled the 3rd brake light and tapped a pair of long wires To it, then ran all hidden up to the dash. Bought a red led tail light and a pair of 2 prong connectors and just set on toad dash. What I was after was not to see when the brake lights were on, but to see when my toad brake pedal was depressed. The 3rd light comes on when the toad brake pedal is depressed. Stepping on the MH brake pedal will illuminate the toad brakes(4 diodes installed) but not the 3rd brake light. Still have to look at the backup camera but just didn’t want to run another wire with connectors from the toad to the dash of the MH.

RE: Need a device

Op here, been camping for a few days and no service. Some good points above. What I’m after is knowing when the towed brake pedal is being depressed and releasing. I know that when I press the MH brake, the toad lights will come on, has 4 diodes installed. Had a mental lapse this last trip and adjusted the brake cable WITHOUT having the arms extended all the way after just hooking up. When we took off the arms extended tighten the brake cable and activated the toad brakes, and drug it 100 feet on gravel driveway before getting out to chec everything again. An indicator would have alerted me to this.

RE: Need a device

The kit is a ready brute elite II. Packaged with everything you need. the toad is a smart car, the rear window in the MH is a small bathroom window, can’t see much. Really cant see the toad with the mirrors. When I’m braking, really want my eyes forward, not looking back. Rear view camera would show a light, but again want eyes to the front.

Need a device

What can be had to show when my brake lights are activated on my toad. My ‘kit” came with an led and a lot of wire to splice into the brake wiring and run to the front of the motor home. Don’t want to have to keep unplugging each time and running any more wires. So what can send a signal about 40 ft and let me know?

RE: Electric Awning Locks?

Something else while your at it. During a recent sudden high wind, went to roll in the auto awning. The U- shaped storage arms didn’t line up by about 1/4“ ,at the top. Had to use a large screw driver to force them in to line up. Once home unfurled the awning and saw it had shifted all the way to one end, causing it to skew and wind up crooked tugging the arms so that they didn’t line up. Lots of soapy water to lube and tug the 18’ awning back in place on the roller tube. 2 stainless screws on each end should now hold it from shifting again.

RE: E-450 Spare Tire carriers

Mounted mine on the roof. Machinest son made me a 12” square of 3/16 stainless with 2 bolts welded on that fit the wheel lug holes. Screwed down with #12 stainless screws. Then all of this was covered with 2 layers of fiberglass . People always ask how would you get it down, my reply was gravity is your friend. Tire was covered with a snap on housing that protected from UV.

Rant, if people are looking for jobs, try subject. Yesterday I was on hold for 1:18:40 to get a reservation at a ga. State park.

RE: Best brand for resale?

Ron, really doubt that will be the same for the PC 2014, 2552 that I bought to replace the Chinook. Health concerns just required a little bigger rig.

RE: Best brand for resale?

Chinook. We have had ours for over 11 years and 95k+ miles. Yes have spent a LOT on upgrades. All maintenance done as required. New owner coming this weekend to pick up. Sold for more than I paid. 2005 was the last year of production but they seem to keep going up in value.

RE: 30amp / 50amp question

If I recall, on my PC when plugged into 30amp the second a/c is not receiving current thu the panel, so it can’t be turned on.

RE: Is A New 2018 Still New?

How does your state figure your advaloram? In ga. Now they get everything up front based on vin. So your 3 year old(maybe 4) based on vin will save you a chunk over the purchase of a current vin. Might offset some loss.

RE: wiring a 30 Amp Power Outlet 30A Circuit Breaker {{UPDATE}}

Just to note, that link is for a refurnished unit. which one is that??? Your very first post, scroll down to “product description “....”this refurbished product was tested... “ I checked again and don't see where it says refurbished... Is that what TESTED means when u buy electrical items, that they are used???? does it matter if it is or should I avoid this type??? thanks Sorry, where it says “product features”. To me, it means it was sold and returned for what ever reason. Probably nothing wrong with it, but to me it would have to be greatly discounted.
