RE: Dually Valve Stems

I’m basically using the same setup as Klutchdust. One way valve caps and extended dual head air chucks BUT for my dualies, I can’t use the style chuck pictured. There are two types of dual head chucks (that I know of), one that is straight with the rear facing chuck angled (pictured) and another that has both chucks at an angle. Mine is the latter. Because of different wheel and extention configurations, I don’t think there is one solution that will fit all. Norm I have standard valve stems, I installed valve stem caps that cover the stem yet allow air to go into the tire and use long reach air chuck and tire gauge. No problem. Add a drop of paint pen on the rim where the inside stem is so you know where it is. https://i.imgur.com/ZzLrWdYl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/K6KSD28l.jpg

RE: E350 trickle charge

Thanks for the responses! Been using a 10watt solar panel on the coach batteries and it works really well. 10w isn’t enough to keep up while camping, but is fine for maintaining charge while in storage. The panel sits on the dash and is plugged into one of the coach outlets. I tried it on the chassis, through the dash and it didn’t seem to be working. I thought there might be a diode in the circuit. It is a very tight fit for the plug so maybe I wasn’t making contact, or I didn’t wait long enough to see an increase in voltage. 10w isn’t very much juice! I’ll try again and report back. Thanks!

E350 trickle charge

The 2006 Ford E350 has live (key removed) cigarette lighter (2) sockets in the dash. Shouldn’t I be able to trickle charge the chassis battery through that outlet? Thanks!

RE: RV toilet paper

We’ve used Costco TP forever! Like Dave says, use plenty of water so it can slosh around in the tank. This is for any TP! The only downside with Costco is if you run out while on the road, you’re going to have to use another brand or find a place to store that huge package! Norm

RE: Towing a Honda CRV

I have the same problem. My solution was to add a battery cut out. See: https://www.amazon.com/Post-Battery-Master-Disconnect-Switch/dp/B001N729FS/ref=sr_1_4?crid=2MZQYP8XQUICI&keywords=battery+disconnect&qid=1564867364&s=gateway&sprefix=Battery+di%2Caps%2C214&sr=8-4 Note: the CRV battery post is smaller than standard, so you might need a shim. See: https://www.amazon.com/Schumacher-BAF-2-positive-negative-batteries/dp/B0060YI0YS/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=Battery+shim&qid=1564867989&s=gateway&sr=8-1 We use the valet key when towing, attached to it is a 3x5 card with the tranny routine and the radio reset code.

RE: Recommended Tow Set-Ups (Brands) for the Toad

X2 No brake box sitting on the drivers side floor. Your base plates will be dependent on your vehicle. We use Blue ox baseplates but have the Ready Brute Elite tow bars with integrated surge brakes. I really like these bars, everything is mechanical so there is nothing electrical or pneumatic to fail on the braking system. And the brakes are built into the bars so there is no installing/uninstalling the brake system like on a lot of other brands and it's not invasive to the vehicle. Takes about a minute to hook everything up from start to finish. Super easy. They were a little more expensive than some other brands, but when you consider the brakes are built in, but they are comparable to a set of bars and additional brake system, so in the end it's a wash. We tow a CRV. ready brute bars
