RE: Broke down days from home, what would you do?

In a lot of areas motels and hotels have longer term rates. That would be my first option. Also depends how far away it happened.

RE: Hwy 26 from Casper Wy to Jackson Hole Wy

If you are traveling toward Jackson now you should google fire info. Last time I checked 12,000 acres were involved near Jackson

RE: External laptop coolers

Yes the external fans do work. DW uses an external fan on her Acer laptop. Her external fan is called "Connectland accessory". It plugs into a USB port. Her Acer has always overheated when purchased new.x2 Probably not needed but sure knocks down the case temp Called a laptop but funny DW dancing around in a chair with her Acer laptop on her lap :B. I have a Lenovo and doesn't get nearly as warm. I'm sure you are right though, probably not really needed.

RE: Seatbelt extenders

I have been unable to find seatbelt extenders for my 2005 Fleetwood Southwind MH. It has a Ford F53 chassis. The tongue width is 1 1/4 inch. The widest I have found is 1 inch. Anyone know of a supplier? Yes, go to Ford. They gave one to me no charge.

RE: What to expect with a new gasser

You'll be just fine in a gasser V10. The rear axle ratio is higher. I believe about 5.2 in 24k pounds. In longer coaches is 6.3 ratio. I live in WY and don't have a problems in the hills around here.

RE: lost signal/short, coax tv cable from front to rear

I've been working in electronic for over 60 years. Althouth it isn't impossible for coax to be damaged. I doubt it. Probably bad measurement. Usually bad connectors. Probably a splitter or something else on the other end. Put a known value resister on one end and measure resistance on the other end and also to ground. Don't be tearing out walls for no reason.

RE: Zamp 200w portable panels

I also have the Zamp. Pricey but they work well. Noisey but that is the problem with a lot of solar chargers because of pulsing. Unless you have amateur radio equipment you'll never notice the RF noise.

RE: Reese Dual Cam for off-road

Our previous TT we had the Reece straight line with dual cam. It was solid in high winds. We went over South Pass in WY with onver 40 mph cross winds. Out TT was only 5000 pounds but I was really impressed. We never drove off road but did drive on icy slick roads in WY in the winter. Hooking up wasn't that difficult in uneven areas. After latching the ball I jacked the rear upward prior to connecting the bars.

RE: opinions please....on a old Lance

If I recall they were selling for about $14,000 new. Basically trouble free at the time.

RE: Question

Converters Vs inverters. Converters changes 120 volts to 12 volts. Almost all RVs have them to charge the batteries.. Inverters change 12 volts to 120 volts. If you have an inverter the input should be 12 volts and the output will be 120 volts. Brand name and model would be helpful so we would know exactly what you have and trying to accomplish.

RE: Free dumping at CW! But poorly designed dump station.

Management probably just found out they were treating customers good. at that CW. That has to stop. :B

RE: Lost control when towing?

I lost control while towing a horse trailer. I was all over the road. Fortunately I regained control but it was white knuckle experience. #1 Horses became untied and moved to the rear of the trailer. #2 My trailer electrical plug was not plugged in properly. What I learned from that experience. Never trust anyone else to check your vecicle. I should have checked the horses and everything else myself before driving. I now walk around my vehicle at every stop, checking out everything myself. I don't rely an anybody else to tell me all is OK. It only takes a few minutes to make a complete safety check of my vehicle and a trailer or toad if I am towing.

RE: RV Insurance

We never know how a insurance company handles claims until we have a problem. Its not like we have accidents all the time. Sometimes we have one company for years before we know how good or bad they are. After reading your post it did sound more like a maintence problem than an accident. Did you hit something that caused the problem?

RE: Words of advice for cell phone users

Good point he made about change in the Jet pack. Sounds like he is out the $150. Every time I have had a problem with ATT they always backed out the fee. I posted before I have both Verizon and ATT. Verizon has better phone service in some areas BUT ATT has MUCH better customer relations dealing with problems.

RE: Nervous first time driver, any good apps to help?

When getting fuel or entering any area plan your exit before entering. I like to pull into the stations so I am facing toward the street. It only takes a couple of times getting blocked in and you will become more aware. No side road sight seeing unless I know exactly where they lead and if there is room to turn around.

RE: This sums it up for the status of the RV industry now

True buying used has its advantages. However, I buy new and dump it quck if I have major problem. Like I did my Jayco. Buying from private owner probably the best quality and deals. Being a farmer I never knew a farmer that sold a good tractor. I suspect there are good used deals out there.

RE: This sums it up for the status of the RV industry now

Was that the sooth sayer about a dying rv industry? The Dow Jones is at its highest point ever. Companies that build good RVs arn't having a problem. Probably hard to sell low end junk.

RE: National General Insurance

I've had National General insurance since about the late 80s. I've never had any big claims. Only glass breakage. Urban they send a glass guy to your house to replace. Rural I 've gone in to have it replaced. Never a problem dealing with them.
