RE: Brakes locked on Holiday Rambler

Will they release using the caging bolt?

RE: Breakaway Switch

There are two types of breakaway switches. One without the battery, which you want, because you have a battery already on the TT. The other type of breakway switch that includes a battery and box are for those trailers that don't normally have a battery such as utility trailers, horse trailers, & stock trailers. The breakaway switches for those trailers have a small battery box and battery included. The box is approx 6" X 6"X 6". Napa sells both because they are vehicle parts dealers. The Napa guy was leaving the choice up to you. RV dealers only sell one type because they deal mostly with RVs. Hope that clears it up. Doubt he needs to go back to school for selling both types. Many people don't realize there are two types.

RE: White hose and black tank flush?

Of course some bacteria is airborn. I suppose when other RVers are watching me they see I use a white hose for both. However, they are different hoses and well marked. Also stored in separate compartments.

RE: Just curious

Never gave it much thought or measured but I'm betting both have isolation diodes and which ever had the higher voltage would do the charging. Some of the newer MHs also charge the starting battery with shore power so isolation diodes would be required to prevent any damage.

RE: Trade In/Repair Issue

Interesting. Every damaged vehicle I traded in the they had me sign over the damage claim to them. They got paid off for the damage except for the deductible. Don't know of any dealer that lost any money on a deal. Did you sign the insurance claim before you signed for the trade?

RE: Dog life in the desert?

Get your dog a rattle snake shot. One shot, second a few weeks later then booster once a year.

RE: Can you recommend some "Wireless Tow Lights"

Interesting. Didn't know they made them. Ones I checked them out seems like batteries are pricey. Load them up with $15 worth of batteries every day you're on the road. Batteries are good for 24 hours. That could add up fast. Why not just get your toad wired? They make a wiring harness for some toads that make it easy to wire. If not just hire it done. Couple of months on the wireless system buying batteries would more than pay for having your toad wired.

RE: Air compressor for winterizing

The larger the tank the more you can do with a compressor. The small portable units have enough cfm for tires, blowing out lines etc. For air tools lke air wrenches you need the larger units. At home Depot and Lowes you will see on the side of the tank what they will handle.

RE: Thief broke camper window, stole TV & wall mount support arm

In a storage yard? My MH suffered a broken window in a storage yard in 1990. Insurance co. doubled my rates.

RE: Which truck signs do I need to worry about?

Well almost correct. How about "trucks right lane only"? Most is common sense stuff. Or "no trucks over 26,000". You won't miss the important ones.

RE: Willow Oaks RV Park in Hesperia CA.

I lived in So Ca for over 40 years. Some of the real nice towns like Hesperia have gone down hill. Hated to see it but it happens. I would not go back to Hysperia. Temecula has so much more to offer. Great shopping, & nice restaurants. Plus some nice wineries to visit. I live in WY but still know the great CA RV spots. We go back qute often.

RE: Willow Oaks RV Park in Hesperia CA.

You would have had a great visit in Temecula, CA at Pehchanga RV Park.

RE: anybody buy at dave smith.in idaho?

A friend bought from them and was happy. You do have to be specific. He wasn't and admitted it was his mistake. He bought a 3/4 ton Dodge Ram. Just assumed it would come with a trailer hitch. Nope, you have to be specific on exactly what you want.

RE: hitch problems Jayco 26ft trailer

Not a real uncommon problem. Your ball has a backward tilt. Maybe too much. Maybe not. Possibly the rear of your vehicle was slightly low when attempting to hitch. I would check the rear tilt to make sure it isn't excessive. Your equalizer hitch should have directions on how to set the tilt. Too much rear tilt can make it harder to hitch and unhitch. Grease helps but may not solve the problem.

RE: Recall on 37,000 2015 Ford F-150 trucks.

Just great. Driving on snow and ice on a two lane highway and the vehicle slams on its brakes because it thinks it is smarter than the driver. What brilliant engineer thought up that idea? Saw one of the compact cars actually takes control and switches lanes. Bad enough I have to watch out for crazy drivers. Now I have to watch out for robots trying to ram into me.

RE: Anyone regret full-timing?

We lived about 30 miles south of Los Angeles. We had owned several RVs over the years. After we retired we fulltimed for almost 4 years. We became bored, and confined in the small living quarters. It was good to get out of the congested city area for a few years. We knew we could not live in the city after retirement. We bought a ranch in Wyoming and sold our RV. 12 years later we bought another RV. We travel but not full time. One of the lures to RVing was getting out of the city. Once we moved to rural Wyoming it is like camping every day just sitting on the back porch. Our dog hates RVing because he always has to be on a leash. When we get home from a trip he gets out of the RV and runs and runs until he is exhausted. JMHO. If we couldn't live on the ranch with acres of space and had to live in a congested suburb we would probably be fulltiming again. In the winter I get up early, get some hot coffee, get in my tractor and enjoy pulling my neighbors vehicles out of snow banks so they can get to work. Or plow out their driveways. No charge. Just keeps me busy.

RE: Need Your Advice

You can purchase bus cable chains for your MH. Have you ever used chains before? Assuming you lived in Socal and driven on snow and ice very little. I think you will be overwhelmed. Fortunately most major storms come after the first of the year. However, the mountain passes are dangerous for drivers that are experienced. Large MHs, like busses, don't pull out of skids very well. Take your car and stay in a motel. I learned how to drive on snow and ice. I moved to Socal. They can't even drive on wet pavement in small vehicles. Snow and ice is more dangerous, especially in large RVs. How long an RV can remain on leveling jacks is the least of your worries. How to retract a jack from frozen ground would have been a better question. Don't risk your life on this trip with so little experience. JMHO. r

RE: Anyone check the temperature of their brakes

If your brakes are getting that hot you are over using them on down grades. You should be gearing down, going slower and letting your engine do the work on down grades. Every summer near the bottom of hwy 16 in Wyoming they have several RVs burn up due to over use of their brakes. Very dangerous to let your brakes get that hot.
