RE: Tow Vehicle Charge Wire

I have about $10 to $12 invested in my charge line. I think the brake buddy charge line with fuse and diodes is about $25. Not a bad price if you don't have the time to build one. It should work as well with the Patriot as the Brake Buddy. For me it is just more convenient to know my toad will start anytime. If I were to break down on a trip at least I don't have to worry about if my toad is going to start every time.

RE: A T & T "unlimited" data wifi hot spot in vehicle

Looks like some limitations. You are required to be in their packaged plan which includes Direct TV. Great for people that already have Direct TV.

RE: Tow Vehicle Charge Wire

Assuming that both your tow vehicle and MH has a minus ground then yes both chassis are common ground. Go to etrailer dot com and they will have plug wiring diagrams. My MH has +12 volt available on the trailer socket whle my ignition key of the MH is on. However, some MHs have some wiring wired to the other side of the relay. For example, my MH requires the ignition o be off before I can operate the slides. Therefore the toad battery will feed back into your Mh. Solution is to add a diode in that charge line. Radio Shack has some cheap 6 amp diodes. If I recal 3 for about $4. I mounted 3 in parallel in a small Radio Shck project box. It prevents your toad battery from feeding back into your MH when the ignition is off. I have measured the charge current and my charge current has never been above 10 amps. I made up my own cable connecting my MH to my toad. 7 pin on the MH to 6 pin on the toad. I have used the diode isoltion for 3 years and works well. I also use the Patriot braking system.

RE: Electical Questions

Sounds like you found the problem. When the problem occurs jumper around the knife switch. Most likely a bad switch.

RE: I can't imagine this many cables (UPDATED)

I label any coax that is still connected. Build a connector with a known value of resistance. connect it to one end of the cables. Check through the other end of cables with an ohm meter. When you find bot ends label it and move your resistance connector another cable and repat the process. I use a resisto on one end because you want to rule out shorts or cables that may still be connected to something else.

RE: National General Ins.

I've had Natl Gen, GMAC, now GS since 1986. I've had several small claims of glass breakage. They have treated me well. I dislike CW, GS extended policies, ERS, and the rest of GS stuff but I am happy with the vehicle insurance. Previous to GS insurance I had State Farm from 1954 to 1985. In 1985 State Farm almost doubled my rates on my first glass breakage claim. If I am treated well don't jump ship.

RE: What is national Park ?

I think they just linked parks and monuments in the group i.e. like you said anything run by the national park service. There is some other stuff going on this year with National Parks on the Air. Hams operating withing the parks to sponsor the anniversary.

RE: worst insurance sign up experience - Beware

E-mailing anything to GS is a disaster. I have had their insurance since 1986. Always contact them by phone and have never had a problem. I have had several claims for glass breakage. Have never had any problems with claims on the phone. Have never seen any large increases in premiums as mentioned in some previous posts. I've been happy with Natl Gen, GMAC, now GS insurance.

RE: Yellowstone Itinerary

If you are in Cody on July 4 for rodeo they also have parade and fun stuff on the 4th in the morning. Busy place on 3rd and 4th. One of the local favorite restaurants is known as the Chop Shop. Actual name is Wyoming's rib and chop house.

RE: Financing a motorhome.

Bank of the West through the dealer gave us the best interest rate. Better than our credit union.

RE: Installing 50/30 Amp Service on Acreage.....?

I have a complete RV hook up. Mine has a cover that I can lock. It has 50, 30, and 20 amps. I also have a sewer dump and water faucet nearby. I would do some planning so you can have a complete hookup.

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.
