The other choice instead of windows 10 is Linux Ubunta

RE: Tank Tech RX

Best way to clean sensors is a wand down through your toilet. The high pressure spray will clean them.

RE: internet on the go

We use our lap tops. We have an AT&T Sierra and also a Verizon Jetpack. Both work well. Some areas you won't get AT&T and some areas you won't get Verizon. Either of them have fairly good security. You can put in a password of up to 65 characters. However, nothing is cheap anymore. As a stand alone unit the Verizon Jetpack costs about $50 a month for probably more than you will need for banking, & emails. Why both? We travel very rural on Wyoming highways.

RE: Why did the front plug/connection come into being on TCs?

I am going out on a limb here with this guess... back in the day I am guessing that there was no such thing as a camper prep package or option from truck manufacturers. The vehicle were made more for work as opposed to hauling any type of RV. Even if there were those scarce RV's, I imagine they had little or no electrics. When some of the early RV's that did have 12V components I would still fathom that Ford, GM, Dodge, etc still were behind in offering camper packages- ergo, it was the Owners who had to wire them up. Since it was the user/ owner who did this then it was only prudent to take the shortest wire routing which meant taking it only to where it was needed and no more. It did not make sense to run cables to the bumper just to run it half-way back again. If this were the case, then it is 'prolly tradition that the TC's now still have the plug in the front of the bed and not the back. Camper dealers wired in the front plug as part of the package. Tapped into the rear socket

RE: Why did the front plug/connection come into being on TCs?

Don't know about TCs today but back in the 60s there were doors into the wheel well areas. Open the front wheel well door on the drivers side and plug in the TC. Easy access, short wires and out of the way. Plus with the 10 1/2' TCs that dropped down in the rear you didn't have to crawl under trying to plug it into the rear socket. Most of the PUs during that time had sockets in the front and rear. A trailer could be plugged into that rear socket since many of us towed boat trailers behind our TCs.

RE: Best campers for seniors?

In the late 60s we were in a cab over TC in So CA. TCs are nice in CA because of the speed limits on TTs. As we aged it became difficult to get up in the cab over bed. We got into a MH. TCs can go any where. Not no much for TTs, 5vers, and MHs. Getting off the main roads is more difficult. We got back into a small MH without an over head bed so we still had the convenuence of a a lower bed to sleep in. Plus not limited by the lower speed limit towing. Always a trade off.

RE: Truck for sale ad waste of time

Even my irrigating PU cleaned up nice before I sold it. That is why I buy new. A good detail covers a lot of internal flaws. The only time it got out of the farm field was to the garage to be serviced.

RE: Beware Fleetwood

Looks like you joined in 2011 when you bought the 2011 RV. You weren't unhappy until 2016? Or did I miss something?

RE: 7 Pin Problem

That connector has a module that can be replaced. Since you have a new PU get it replaced under warranty. My F250 needed the module replaced after a couple of years. No need to change out wiring. Just pop out connector module and put in a new one. 5 min job. I would try a contact cleaner first.

RE: Battery Gauge Quit Working

Is it the switch or the meter? Bypass the switch temporarily. You may be able to replace the switch if it is just the switch.

RE: tv interference

Try re-routing the coax from back of the tv to where it attaches to the wall. Moving it away from the other wires.

RE: Portable ice makers

We just removed ours. It gives us a lot more room in the freezer.They are easily removed, just pluged in and a couple of screws. We make a few ice cubes in a tray or two and it is enough for us.

RE: Recommendations for a Toad??

Gasser MH you will be limited to 5,000 lb or less. I tow a Jeep Wrangler and like it. I'm 6'-2". It is hard for me to crawl into those little rice rockets.

RE: planning for fifth-wheel- full timer

I FT'd several years ago in a 5ver. 32 ft towed with 7.2L F250.Got about 8 mpg.I owned a MH prior to that and told people I didn't want a steering wheel in my living room. I discovered the 5ver, although handling a little better, became more tiresome driving than a MH. At the end of the day a little more effort leveling and unhooking. I'm back in a MH. I'll take that steering wheel in my living room. There are many pluses in a 5ver though. More living space for footage, Much more storage. Take PU in for service was easier, Like many posts I have seen over the past. If I was staying in each place for longer periods I'd be back in a 5ver in a minute. More like living in a home.

RE: Proposed HUD rule on RV USE Definition

This is most likely a way that RVIA and RVDA can help the RV industry. If the RV industry was required to maintain more quality standards, like HUD, the consumer may get better RVs. Can you just imagine? An RV with no problems?:B

RE: Do you launch a boat with your Class C?

No , but launched a bass boat with my class A . MH never got into the water.
