RE: No heat / Furnace not working

Are you hooked up to shore power? If not, your battery may be low. For the furnace to go on the fan must blow hard enough to operate the sail switch, which tells the furnace to ignite and that you have enough air to circulate the heat. Battery should be at least 12.3 volts.

RE: Nice Story fellow RVer

Your story gives me faith that there are still many good folks out there. Great story!

RE: Will Fed shutdown bar access to Nat Forests? Nat Parks?

You get what you vote for. I refuse to let politicians of any stripe determine how I live my life or determine when or where I go. Look up the definition of 'Federalism'.

RE: V10 misfire codes

How is the chassis battery/connections? When my battery started going south, I would get random multiple misfire codes for a short time after startup. New battery solved that.

RE: Power Mirrors Don’t Work!

Had an intermittent problem with my mirrors also. Turned out to be the aux power solenoid in the electric bay. Can be had at almost any auto parts store.

RE: Samsung smart tv

I bought a new Samsung last year and had the same problem, except I used it for streaming only. WIFI, No HDMI. Returned it and replaced with VIZIO. Great picture, but they have their own set of 'smart tv' problems.

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. ^^^^^ THIS ^^^^^

RE: Flying J Anomalies

Despite the odd issue at a few locations, we still like and frequent Flying J. They are our main go to when in need of fuel. Seldom go near regular gas stations as many are a distance off the interstate and due to risk of damage because of our size/length. X2.Not to mention all the other amenities FJ offers rv'ers you can't get at other stations.

RE: us 65 south from branson

If you're not in a hurry, take 65 south to Harrison Arkansas, then route 412 east. The road is a good 2-lane, twisty and hilly in the Ozarks, but quite doable with your setup. We did it in our 33 footer with toad and had no problems. Very scenic and relaxing and a lot of small towns. It eventually takes you to Jackson, TN where you can get on I40. We were heading to Birmingham, AL and took 2-lanes (can't remember routes) to Birmingham. Stayed off interstates as much as possible. Good Luck!

RE: Please Help 2006 mustang pop up

Most tubular locks I've seen can easily be opened with small needle-nose pliars. Simply turn the inner cylinder.

RE: tow dolly brakes

Had a dolly with surge brakes and it was great. No special hookups and they were there when needed most. Just hook up dolly and go. Had a couple emergency braking situations and the surge brakes helped get me stopped.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I'm going to break from the pack here and suggest putting the black walnut on top and adding a piece to the center of the drawer where the pulls will be creating a sort of bas-relief look. Would give it a bit more character. Simply rounding the edge of the trim would eliminate the chance of catching something on it. JMHO

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I am 'assuming' you will be putting black walnut veneer on the drawer fronts? Curious how you will be cutting that wide veneer?

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

These X2 Have had those in my MH since I got it. Never a failure.

RE: Streets & Trips Replacement

I used Delorme SA on my laptop for many years till Garmin bought the company and immediately ditched SA. I still use the last version, 2015, for mainly the POI's which can be imported into it. SA had the option to log your trip data, which you can rerun later to see the exact route, speed, etc you took.I have MANY (most) trips logged to review at a later time. For navigation, I use Co-Pilot on my tablet.

RE: Out with the grill

Very well done! Curious as to what finish you used on the drawer. I like it.

RE: Supplemental brake locked up - at the wrong time.

I just finished installing the Readybrake cable and breakaway cable on my Ford Edge, and can't see any way for that to happen except for someone/thing pulling on the breakaway cable. My cables come out well above the front airdam. If yours are down that low sounds like improper installation.

RE: Anyone install base plate on 2020 Escape hybrid

Maybe comparing apples to oranges, but installed Roadmaster baseplate on my 2013 Ford Edge last weekend. Instructions were very good, so just follow closely. Took less than 3 hours with my 2 talented (take after their father;) ) sons. Hardest part was installing brake and breakaway cables for my ReadyBrake surge brake. Good luck!
