RE: Towed braking system problem

Look at the Ready Brake from NSA. Easy installation on the motor home hitch receiver, at a wire(s) run between the Ready Brake and toad bumper and then to the brake pedal of the Jeep. No power required at the toad unless your year Jeep requires some. My 2015 doesn’t.

RE: MotorTrend F150 Lightning Tow Test

Tesla best come out with their space age, pickup truck (IMO ugly) soon or they may become an also ran. Same with the OTR truck. After a while you gotta deliver. All the delays allow competitors to catch up or surpass.

RE: MotorTrend F150 Lightning Tow Test

Actually, most 1/2 tons are used just as a mode of transportation and tow nothing in their lifespan. As are a lot of vehicles - used far less than what they are capable of such as my Jeep. Daily driver, toad. May at some point in time be used to follow a dirt road out west through a park. I’d hate to shell out $80-120k for a vehicle to tow a fiver or TT and be so limited in hauling.

This may answer your question.

RE: Selling 2018 F150 to upgrade to 2022 F150 - worth it or not?

If you like your current truck, it pulls what you need it to, why in the world are you wanting to swap? I fight the urge to swap cars by simply pulling maintenance on my 2015 2dr Wrangler, upgrading electronics, giving it a bath, and a new set of tires. Now I have to keep it to justify the upgrades. Prices are high, interest rates are going up.

RE: Good RV Mattress for heavier people

Check out Bed In A Box. They have a wide variety of mattresses. We’ve had one in the house for a year now and it’s great. They send it to you rolled up in a box. You take it out of the box, after removing the plastic wrap, place it on the bed platform, some more cutting and low a behold it expands out to a a mattress. You can try it for a while, and if you don’t like it they will come get it. The down side is you then have to get your old mattress hauled off.

RE: Roof A/C Issue

I too suspect a capacitor failing when it gets too hot from direct sunlight.

RE: Acrylic sheet to replace skylight bubble?

Once I bought a used MH and the po had replaced bathroom skylight with a flat piece of plastic/acrylic. As I recall they had build a frame to raise the sheet off the roof just a bit. I think the reason was to allow for the headroom lost when you remove the inner and outer bubble. May not be a problem if skylight is not in the shower. What are your plans to dress up the hole on the inside. I think “curb” should read “curve”. I’m not sure it matters as I don’t believe the bubbles have a curved bottom.

RE: Tank cleaning wand - how much water does it leave?

Or wait to use it when you next stay at a full hook up site.

RE: Sequential use of small water jugs with pump

If they are sealed just stack them. The highest pair will empty first so a refill can be made. ^^^ This. Gravity will take care of the issue. Lay them on their side so the exit is at the bottom then stack them one above the other. The separate cans will act like one large one, emptying from the top downward. Agree. Stack them, have each can feed the one below it, attach pump to the bottom tank. Each can will need an water input and output feed AND an air input valve. Air valve closed on all but the top can. Might want to use translucent cans so you can visually check water levels. Several types of stackable water containers on Amazon. With minor alterations should do what you want. Let gravity work for you.

RE: No CD player in new coach

There are several portable CD players that provide connections to a in dash system, and most now support Bluetooth connectivity so no cables. Instead of burning all my CD’s to a laptop (don’t use one anymore) to move to iPhone, as I don’t like every song on every CD, I just purchase the songs I listen to from iTunes Store and there available on all My Apple devices. Plus with Family Share, the wife has access to them as well.

RE: Cleaning Water Jugs

Basically the same way you sanitize the water tank in your camper. For a six gallon jug you need very little bleach or peroxide. An ounce of bleach would be plenty. Fill the jug, let it sit for a couple hours, drain/fill twice.

RE: why do renewing members get a raw deal?

I think the worst of these promo ads is Sirius XM where they offer a new customer rate but fail to mention all the fees that are added to the bill, which as I remember double the monthly bill. Never have or will be a paying customer.

RE: Campground availability on shorter notice

Fuel prices. And overall inflation causing many to curb their travel plans. More people may actually have found they need to back to work.

RE: Cell Phone - Sending Test Message

My ex was trying to send some pics yesterday via txt and took a long time. Not sure what service she has.

RE: Water Pressure

Is this on pump or park water? If park water do you have a screen style washer at the hose connection? Could it clogged?

RE: Hot Water Replacement

I’ve never understood how a small OD wh can provide adequately (subjective I know) hot water for a high flow requirements of a shower, especially during the colder months.

RE: Low tree branches in my development ..Update

Heck, the Feds have very little power versus the railroads. Raising a old RR bridge from 9’ to 13 or 14 feet would be really expensive.

RE: Quiet door latch

Tell the kids to quit slamming the door! Just have them close the door firmly.
