RE: No brake lights! Very frustrating.

Have you tried WD40 on the hazard switch as I suggested? It is a known problem with Fords. You push the hazard button to use the flashers, push again to turn them off but the button sticks and the brake lights don't work.

RE: Jump Packs

I have a rechargeable flashlight in the car that stays plugged into a receptacle that is only hot when ignition is on. It charges while driving but not when parked. You could do the same with a jump pack.

RE: No brake lights! Very frustrating.

Does the hazard switch sit on top of the column in a shallow well? Fill that well with WD40 and work the switch up and down.

RE: Black/Grey tanks

That's right, no black tank, just a hole in the floor. Ahh, the good old days! Do not flush while train is standing in the station Hahah good one! :) There are still some vintage train cars in use with that system and that sign. When you do flush the waste drops straight to the road underneath.

RE: Marcus Lemonis speaks out

Thanks for posting Old-Biscuit. I have no reason to look in the class A section so I would have never seen the other post.

Can it do it? Technically yes, but it won't be a pleasant experience. The small tow vehicle and lack of power will be very noticeable. Go somewhere like etrailer and search for weight distribution hitches. In brief, they take weight from the rear axle and apply it to the front axle. The Equal-i-zer brand is popular. Keep in mind that passengers and gear in the tow vehicle should be subtracted from the tow rating.

Grand Design sells to Winnebago

Yep, the guys that sold Keystone to Thor and then started Grand Design are now selling out to Winnebago. For me it is very disappointing. Grand Design was started with the concept of selling a quality unit at a fair price. They also changed the way they worked with dealers. We really need a company that will concentrate on providing a quality product to buyers. Once the concept is proven the other manufacturers would be forced to improve their quality. Three companies, Forest River, Thor, and Winnebago will now sell over 80% of all RVs. There is essentially one frame and axle company. There are essentially only two appliance makers. The lack of competition is causing the industry to be able to screw the customers. Here are you choices, sucker, like it or lump it.

RE: netflix or amazon

I have both but Netflix is far more user friendly. Amazon is a pain to negotiate the menus. They do have different shows and are relatively inexpensive. Since many of the series are from cable/pay tv and I have never had cable, they are all new shows to me.

RE: Stinky gray water

Are you smelling it inside? If so you have a plumbing problem. Look inside the sink cabinets for bad air admittance valves.

RE: Surge protector error code

Consider yourself lucky, an open ground with 50a service can cause a voltage imbalance and fry appliances. That device saved you some $$.

RE: Table top

I redid our table after my nephew broke the old one. I used 3/4inch oak boards put together with keg screws and stained it. Looks great Can you enlighten me on what keg screws are? Never came across that word. Kreg, not keg is a brand of pocket hole screws and jigs.

RE: Advice for a newbie

You probably have 1,000 pounds of tongue weight on the truck. What is the payload capacity of the truck and what else is being carried? A trailer of that size that has a cargo capacity of less than 1,000 pounds will almost always be overloaded after LPG, batteries, water, food, clothing, and misc. gear is loaded. Filling the fresh water alone will add over 400 pounds.

RE: Propane tank problem

Go to an actual LPG distributor like Amerigas. They can do whatever repair is needed and then fill the tank.

RE: Interstate Batteries let me down

Most batteries die of abuse and neglect from the owner. Few die of old age.

RE: Battery test ?

1. Read the voltage of the RV battery. 2. Connect the tow vehicle and start the engine. 3. Read the voltage of the RV battery, if charging it will be 13.2 or more.

RE: First Buy!?

Be sure you realize that the 3,500 pound tow rating is for the trailer, all gear, water, food, dogs, and the fiance. You need an empty trailer weighing 2,000 to 2,500 pounds. This is not exactly correct. Most but not all vehicle manufacturers base the tow rating on a tow vehicle that is empty other than the driver. Additional passengers and cargo in the tow vehicle is to be subtracted from the tow rating.

Pop up explorer is dead, most of the knowledgeable posters have fled due to an unmoderated troll. The best place for pop up info is the forum at http://www.popupportal.com
