RE: Bathroom Fan Upgrade

I replaced the tiny fan in the kitchen area (same type and size as the bathroom) with a single speed Vortex. Two things: plenty of noise, and with the max air vent cover is seems air flow is fairly restricted by the bug screen.

RE: Reasonably decent towed vehicles for a Class A

The number of NEW vehicles that can be flat towed is declining. There are quite a few older cars that can be. I towed Jeep Wranglers, and Chevy Sonic’s. Both easy to tow. Previous post gives info on where to look for more models. When decide on a vehicle, check out NSA’s Ready Brute Elite which is a tow bar aux brake combo. Very easy to set up and use.

RE: Has anyony upgraded to Android 13 on cell phone?

I didn’t see anyone else responding that had a Motorola phone. One of the “benefits” to Android is the ability for hardware companies to build specific versions of the OS. Same for the telco companies all in efforts to set their offering apart from the others. It’s one reason it takes so long for customers to adopt the new OS.

RE: I have a disgusting problem… HELP!!!

Ok, why did you allow them to stay there in the first place, any for so long? I’d call a septic tank clean out company to come pump out the drums, might get you system pumped at the same time. Then pay someone to clean out all the trash including the empty drums.

RE: Flat towing with your truck camper

I’ll echo the above posts on the NSA products. I’ve used them on a 2dr Wrangler and now a Gladiator. No power required in Jeep while towing so no issues with battery drain.

RE: Saying Good-bye/Scrapping a TT

List it and be very upfront about what its status is. I’m sure someone will be glad to move it for you. Either to live in it as is, or as a project. I’m am always amazed at what some will live in. Not judging, they gave their circumstances to deal with.

RE: Spacing between slide and RV Floors

Don’t know what type rv you have but in my Newmar gas mh, the full wall slide sits as you describe. The kitchen and bedroom slides do not.

RE: Replace television

My experience with Vizio is they are good but may have minimal features such as audio adjustments. Go where you can see them and go through the menu systems.

RE: Exhaust Fan

A simple fix is usually your best option.

RE: Interesting situation to park RV

Find a shopping mall in an out of the way location. Perhaps a business closed on Sunday. Observe and signage regarding parking limitations. When we’re going to the beach we will sometimes stop to visit the MIL and stop at a mall or local truck stop.

RE: Camping World or Mom and Pop

My buying experience from CW was great. Knew what I wanted, had pricing sheet from manufacturer, special ordered. No pressure to finance from them as I had already researched my options. They offered the best terms. Warranty work after the sale was not so good. My buying experiences with buying used units from “Mom & Pop” was not so good. Seems they sold them in the same condition they got them, didn’t inspect or repair anything. Up to the buyer to find every issue.

RE: Backup android-based tablets to cloud?

RE: New to towing questions

Wranglers are relatively easy to setup for tow. You will need a tow bar, brake system, base plate, wiring for lights. NSA Ready Brute Elite has a tow-bar/brake system all in one. Road master has a good baseplate for the Wrangler, and a towing kit to include wiring, safety cables, electrical umbilical cord from mh to toad.

RE: Best way to tow with mobility issue

The height of the towed vehicle will be a big factor. Towing a Chevy Sonic is much different than towing a Wrangler especially if the Jeep has been lifted. To ease setup take a look at the NSA Ready Brute Elite package that includes tow bar, and inertia brake. This system can been married to a variety of base plates. To complete the brake system you run a cable from the front bumper to the brake pedal. Hooking up is at most a five minute task. Check it out.

RE: Towing a toad

A 2dr Wrangler is well within your towing capacity I would think. Look into the NSA Ready Brute Elite package, very easy to install, and you can match it up to to most any baseplate. BTW you can not tow a Wrangler on a tow dolly.

RE: Are you supposed to tow 4 down with the steering unlocked

As above you need a brake system. On edit, how much does the Bronco weigh versus what your hitch and tow capacities are.

RE: Towing a 2018 Wrangler JLU w/ Classic Brake Buddy questions

Years ago I had that type of brake system and after a short while I gave up on it as being a PIA to install/remove, required power to the Jeep. Sold it, replaced it with a NSA Ready Brake. No more setup in the rain, no power required at the vehicle. I first used one in my now sold ‘15 Wrangler JK, and now in my Gladiator. But back to your question. Do you have someone who can drive the mh while you ride in the Jeep and adjust it on the fly?

RE: Towing a Jeep Cherokee

Hard to know with no data. What does your mh weigh as setup for travel? What does the Cherokee weigh? Add those two weights together and compare to your motorhomes Gross Combined Weight Rating (GCWR). My 2016 F53 V10 mh tows my 4900 lb Jeep Gladiator just fine.

RE: Cabin air conditioner

Let’s see here… two ac units, extension cords?, plugged into what? The description of the truck is informative but not relevant. What type of RV? Travel Trailer, 5th Wheel? I suspect you trying to pull to much power from too little supply.

RE: Best way to market a dinghy tow vehicle

Here is one place, iRv2, Wrangler forum, Jeep Gladiator forum. Some of these may require a minimum number of posts in order to post something for sale. Then of course there’s eBay.
