RE: Towing Grand Cherokee with Gas Ford V10

Hitch rating is only one factor to consider. Just because the hitch is rated 5k doesn’t mean you can tow that much. Your documentation should tell you what the GCWR - Gross Combined Weight Rating is which tells you the maximum weight of MH, contents, and towed vehicle your unit can support WITH supplemental braking. You should get your MH weighed as setup for hitting the road. Full fuel, full water, all contents you plan to take. Do the same for the Jeep especially if you’re going to cram stuff in it too. If your measured weights are under the GCWR you should be ok. Make sure you adjust the tire pressures on the mh to what the tire manufacturer’s tire chart says is needed to support the weight.

RE: Does RV.net have a policy forbidding the discussion of EVs?

Like all public forums you have no control over what type of individuals sign on. Some think they know everything and discourage alternate thought. Some ask a newbie type question and get called out for being dumb. Sad that “adults” can’t have meaningful discussions with out getting personal or insulting.

RE: Question for class A and C people with toads!

Most of the time (my experience) when the connections are at the way back is in an older CG. Heck some even are uphill from where the camper’s drains are. Either was carry plenty of hose(s).

RE: Does travel trailer furnace have a filter?

No. Filters would obstruct the air flow and cause overheating.

RE: I need a toad.

If you want a nice little car to tow, I can echo the Chevy Sonic mentioned above, ours was 2013 Hatchback automatic. Easy to tow, easy to setup to tow. After going out to Monument Valley, we wanted a toad more capable to go places that the Sonic would not allow. Found a gently used Jeep Wrangler and would tow nothing else. Get the NSA Ready Brute Elite package and you will enjoy towing the Jeep and seeing the sights.

RE: Not Able To Download Apple Music In Free

To download music to your phone, you have to use the iTunes app. Which should already be on your phone. Music is for streaming.Apple didn’t do themselves any favors with have having both ITunes and Music.

RE: Chew on this.

Camping World and other RV dealers are advertising to buy your RV, but not at reasonable prices. Seems they want to build inventory and/or they know there is a lot of people looking to sell. Towable units, except perhaps for Airstream, are most often purchased by people with lower incomes and more affected by the price of gas/diesel.

RE: USDA Announcement

Awesome - and maybe next time, people will take the idea of a pandemic more seriously? Doubtful. The government at all levels regardless of party got so many things wrong, contradicting information, and lockdown mandates that killed businesses and jobs, hurt our children’s health and education. People will be very wary of what they are told by politicians agencies.

RE: Low pressure at RV shower head. What is this?

Can’t see, but there should be a little hole for the water to come thru. You can make the hole a bit bigger.

RE: Good potable water hose?

here is what I use. I have a 25ft and a 50Ft. takes up almost no space. Have used them for over 10 years now w/o any issues. handi hose I’ve had one for 15+ years and still use mine. The crank case broke years ago. Works great year round and without the case takes next to no space to store. Hard to find now.

RE: Full size spare tire for toad

Also suggest, if you have one, to leave the backup camera set to be on all the time, if you have one. Helps to keep a watch on the toad, and helps to know when you are beyond a vehicle you past. I’ve seen folks driving on the donut tire for weeks.

RE: Electrical

Okay, I may be the only one to say this, but since you have a 50 amp fiver, upgrade/install the outlet to 50 amp. Problem solved.

RE: Toyo tires

Just about any tire pressure chart for your tire size will provide the pressure required to support your MH’s weight. Use your GAWR to determine pressures until you get actual weights, or pressures displayed in your unit. The numbers on the tire are your last resort pressures and rarely required on a MH. Best performance and best ride will most likely require different values!

RE: Tech Issue Leave Lithium Do Dads On Charger?

Can’t speak for all devices, but new iPhones/iPads will quit charging when full. They can also learn your charging habits and delay charging to 100% until just before you typically start using it. At the same time batteries degrade over time, and modern iPhones will tell you to what degree. My current iPhone only has 91% of it new capacity.

RE: The horrible roads are killing the fun.

Slow down, make your tires are aired based on weight not side wall, or placard numbers.

RE: RVing with IBD?

I agree with your wanting a C class over your existing unit. It will be a change but manageable, and the bath situation would be much improved. As above one of the reasons we chose a MH was in “inflight” access to bathroom, fridge, snacks, medicines. Wife has a small drugstore she carries for various maladies and my supply is not much smaller. Good luck and hope hubby starts to feel better.

RE: House battery size

As above, get them checked. If they have been giving you good service just replace them. Are you deploying slides connected to power or just on batteries? My manual states to exercise the slides while on shore power or gen. Moving a FES takes a lot of power. I try to help by opening a window while operation the slides a lot of air has to be accounted for when going in or out.

RE: Mattress

We have a “bed in a box” in our home and it’s great. Like your perhaps came compressed but expanded 100%. If we ever need a new mattress for our RV will get another one.

RE: Class ‘A’ motor homes FORD chassis.

Don’t know about the 2020 units but my 2016 had a “Bumper to Bumper” 3 year or 36,000 mile warranty, and a 5 year or 60,000 mile power train warranty. Unless there is more to the story, it sounds like a valid warranty claim. On a side note, finding a Ford dealer to work on Class A motorhomes is a **** shoot. Most of them don’t, even if Ford says they do. Many commercial truck centers will and can do warranty work.

RE: Low power?

I suspect DS is Dutch Star (Newmar). “Server” may be “Service”. Is it possible to move closer? You might want to consider upgrading the service to 50 amps. As above the length of cords will reduce the voltage. Generator is properly sized for the MH providing 50 amps, and is really really close by.
