RE: Increasing towing capacity

My current 98 year has a 10,000lb hitch and nearly 100k on the clock. I tow a bunch and if that thing of yours has been taken care of it will pull just fine. BUT--reinforce that factory hitch as it is probably designed for a Bass boat.

RE: New RV Electric RV Toad In Depth Review - Mike Mas

I'll stick with my Smart car---same size as a golf cart yet has all the bells and whistles for the street and will go down the Interstate at 90 if you desire and it is a MERCEDES!!!!!!!

RE: Car Trailer behind a class A MH

My 20ft deck Featherlite trailer weighs 1800lbs and will haul my F-150 if I choose and cost $12000 with a tool box, a wind dam, and aluminum wheels. And I can park that thing anywhere. Could have got an off brand 16ft for around $4500.....That thing just looks like an expensive pita to me.

RE: Very Bad RV Wreck in Oregon

2346 read what I said insurance + Good Sam, Coach Net, etc. and I have already been towed from an accident. Someone paid, not me.

RE: Very Bad RV Wreck in Oregon

I sure wouldn't be paying to take it to the dump. Part it out and recover some of your money + the car. My family been in the towing business for almost 70 years and if you have a deal with the police you sometimes get stuck and that was a LARGE tow bill but if all that equipment he had was his he is doing ok. You win some you lose some. I can't imagine even driving my DP without insurance + Good Sam, Coach Net, or something.

RE: Parking in Jacksonville, FL Wal Mart

Reason for WalMart or truck stop is because there are 2 of us going racing in South FL and with our trailers we are over 70ft long. So its usually a Walmart or Truck stop and we just sleep for awhile and go on. Thanks for all the info.

Parking in Jacksonville, FL Wal Mart

Heading to South FL in a few days and wondered about stopping for a few hours sleep just South of Jacksonville. One Wally seems to be near I-95. Thanks

RE: What jack to have onboard for roadside tire changes?

Like someone above I have Coach Net, a cell phone, and various credit cards and cash. 78 years old and not fooling with flat tires but there is a mounted 22.5 spare sitting in my garage, why I don't know! But what about those areas of our country where there is no cell service?

RE: "Balancing" motorhome heating systems.

I work on mine all the time because it is old but besides looking new it acts new also. When I don't understand I ask here or go on youtube and look. If its more than I can handle I take it to someone that will deal with it. Nothing worse than being on a trip and having issues.

RE: Back up camera

I installed the VOX in my 36 ft DP yesterday and it did not send a signal to the screen in front. Went over and tested the wiring several times and nothing. I also moved the antenna to several locations with no results. I removed it and then installed it in my F-350 dually and it worked there. So it is my opinion that the distance and the fact that that there is a metal firewall back there obstructs the transmission. Could be wrong but I am sending it back anyway.

RE: New Owner Needing Info

I tried ti get a replacement signal light that mounts on my 1998 Velvac mirror and it cost $43 and was nothing more than a $2.50 deal from a truck stop and didn't fit anyway....They refunded my money and told me parts for the 1998 on my Monaco were no longer available. Got one from Wal Mart that worked but had to wire it in. Check your private messages

RE: Back up camera

VOX came today. Looks pretty simple to install. I'll let you know. Since this thing works off the back up lights it is useless to monitor whatever you are towing going down the high way. I am only using it to hook up my trailers which I can't see the hitch with my factory camera. I can still use the original to monitor going down the road.

RE: Back up camera

RE: Repairs and Upgrades

At one period in my life I just figured no matter the cost I could make the money in no time compared to the time and agrivation it took to fix things. Just felt I had better things to do than work on my DP. Been retired for 18 years now and do a lot of little things myself on the RV, the house, and the cars. Have learned a lot. You want an education try replacing the cooling fan on a Smart car. You would be surprised what you can do if you want to.

RE: Time to hang up the keys...(consignment ?)

I am 78 and although no long trips this year we have been to Charleston, Pigeon Forge twice, Baltimore once and Blowing Rock, NC so far this year. Be leaving 24 Dec for West Palm Beach. I have lived my life on the dangerous edge and figure if I alter plans for what MIGHT happen I'll either miss a lot or never do anything. Did I mention that I still tow my race car which I also drive? But I am sure that the time will come when I have to start giving up some things, not soon I hope.
