RE: Bluetooth Dashboard speaker

I just made a new center console to make it more user friendly. I went with a Pioneer touch screen with Bluetooth and apple car play. This allows me to put the GPS on my new radio and easily connect my phone.

RE: Flat tow power steering on Jeep

Yes the 14 doesn't need anything special. It has electric/ hydraulic PS. Has a standard hydraulic rack and an electric pump instead of belt driven. I would still run a charge wire to keep the battery at full charge depending on how your brake system operates.

RE: Rubber roof white wearing off

Do you know you're not suppose to post the same thing in more than one subforum? Clicky Except that I don't go n the 5th wheel forum. I see no problem with posting it in more than one Forum......within reason.Click the button on the top right that says "Forum Rules" and read the second rule. Again, I don't go into he 5th wheel Forum. So posting it in 2 different ones makes sense so other people will see it. It one of those "rules" that needs to be done away with.

RE: My Amazing 12-year old battery...

The batteries installed in the trunk or inside the car last 2-3 times longer than the ones under the hood.

RE: China shipping

My son ordered some amazon center caps for his Mercedes. It took almost 2 months to get them. Next time he will spend the extra money and get them in less than a week.

RE: Rubber roof white wearing off

You can clean it all you want before priming it and coating it. But if it's wearing away, it's still going to lift as the surface under the new coating lets go. Time to reroof it! I was going back and forth with my 07 TT. I priced it both ways and it was a wash in terms of DIY, but replacing the entire roof was more time consuming. In the end I traded it for our 2012 with a fiberglass roof! A little more pricey, but me and the wife are happy.

RE: Carlisle Radial Trail HD tires?

Yes these are the new tires from Carlisle. The Carlisles from the last 10 years have been good tires. I had 2 sets of the RH tires and then the last set were the HD’s. Never had an issue with these brand Carlisles. And the HD’s have the higher speed rating for an extra margin of safety.

RE: Full Hookup Sites on Lake Michigan

I liked Indiana Dunes. Holland state park is out due to no alcohol policy.How can they possibly enforce that? Enforcement was my question too, but apparently they have rangers patrolling. We may still consider it and just be careful. Indiana Dunes looks nice, but it looks like electric only sites. Keep it stored inside and don’t drink out of cans or bottles. They won’t even know. The policy is to keep out the loud obnoxious drunks!

RE: Substancial deposit required

The more popular campgrounds want 1/2 deposit and sometimes paid in full a week or 2 before you arrive.

Shouldn’t you be in the south (southern US) by now?!!!!!

RE: Residential Refrigerator – Good or avoid?

A good solar system will take care of a residential fridge when you don’t have electric hookups. Once they are up to operating temp they require very minimal energy to operate. Right now we have a bigger gas electric RV fridge, much more room than our old TT fridge, and I have an outside fridge too. If it ever fails I will replace it with a residential fridge.

RE: POPS RV (broker) - Feedback?

In my opinion people are wasting there time and money with Pops's RVs. When I was looking all of the units I would've been interested in were over priced by a lot. And as you are finding out getting a straight answer is difficult if not impossible! I'm sure they are legit, but they make the buying process and getting info difficult. That has been my initial impression as well, even after 1 unit. Their offer is 3 pages and, there is a buyers fee of $389. I was just looking for a verbal on how far apart we were on price, which would ensure I don’t waste their time (or mine). I am hesitant to sign any contract, I may just walk away from this one. Thanks OJ Ya, I have never looked that far into it. But if they are expecting me to pay them for me to buy someone’s RV then there is no deal! I hope people that search for Pop’s RV come across this post in their searches and realize what a waste of time and money it is for them.

RE: Residential Refrigerator – Good or avoid?

Most residential refrigerators are the same price as the RV fridge. But when you add in an inverter and a couple batteries then it gets a bit more pricey, but still well worth it. I've heard installation is different depending on the fridge and RV. Some can go through the entry door with the fridge doors removed, others can go through a window, and I have heard of a few that say they need the slide removed. I don't have a residential fridge, but one was optional on mine. I know a few people that have one and are happy with them.

RE: More tire pressure monitor discussion.

I have been RVing with TT's for 16 years and never used a TPMS. Always bought new quality tires every 5 years. Now with the MH I've been looking at TPMS because you can't feel the car behind you like you can with a TV and TT. What pushed me to get one is last year when a friend of ours showed up late for Columbus Day weekend. He pulled up, so we went over and said hi and helped him set up. When we walked around to the drivers side of the trailer there it was, shredded to nothing, one of the tires blew at some point, he never knew it. He tows a 25ft non slide TT with an F250 Diesel deleted with a tune. Said he didn't notice a thing with how it handled. Luckily it didn't damage the wheel or the trailer, and only took out the brake wire on that wheel. I do remember the previous year when he bought it, I told him to replace the tires. He didn't, he even said before I said anything, "yep you told me last year"! What this shows though, is that you cannot tell if a tire is low or flat on something being towed. Yes new tires would've eliminated a failure like this, but a flat or issue can still crop up and you won't know it. Which is why I got the TST system with the 10 cap sensors. $540 is money well spent to stop a potential failure that can do far more damage than $500!

RE: SOLVED No 12V

Follow the battery wire. There should be a 30A circuit breaker in line along that wire. It probably tripped.

RE: Tire pressure monitors

How does me saying “I buy quality tires and don’t worry about it” translate to me telling anyone what to do??????????? Funny how it gets so many twisted by me simply saying what I do and don’t do. Not including you Larry. Then what did your comment mean?

RE: Class A crash

Obviously, surveillance cameras for home use is one thing, whereas when used in a motorized home they might well be used against you. It's kinda like cockpit recorders in aviation,....sometimes you can say too much, forensically speaking. Yep, my thoughts exactly. With that video in hand I'd suspect Progressive might give him grief with a settlement...certainly the Highway Patrol would use it if they wanted to mail out a citation....Dennis Video means nothing for the insurance to pay out. It’s an accident and that’s what insurance is for with or without video! I’m sure his rates will go up. But they will pay!

RE: Tire pressure monitors

I purchased the 10 sensor cap style kit. Mine are the anti theft style. They come with a lock nut that gets tightened from the back with the special tool. I thought I was getting the type with the spinning security covers, but I got the other style. I haven't installed them yet, but I'll probably not use the lock nuts. Looking forward to using home his season.
