RE: windshield wiper failure

Try using rain-x latitude blades, because they have less wind resistance they don't put as much strain on the motor

RE: Where is everyone getting their wiper blades?

Paid that big price once, mine had the big J hook. Cut last 2 inches off, went to junk yard and got 2 arms off ford pickup for $5.00, cut 3 in. off that arm, overlapped new smaller J hook on old arm and welded. Now buy new 28 in. rainex latitude blades for $8.oo. Just an idea

RE: 6" valve stems

If you install these from experience also install rubber wheel inserts to support them

RE: Battery Hold downs

When mine corroded beyond use I threw them away. I figure if the batteries bounce out of the tray in a 40 foot motor home, I've got more serious problems than batteries. (jmho)

Not 100% positive but that looks like a threaded rod screwed into the eyelet. Try turning it out. If it comes out go to a industrial supply store and purchase a threaded rod grade 5 or grade 8. Cut to length use "lock-Tight" when installing the threaded rod into the eyelet. You now have manufactured your own tensioner. Hope this helps

RE: RV Tank Maintenance

Google " GEO " method, Dawn dish soap and Calgon water softener. Been using this for years with good success. Lasts about 6 months then do it again. I do this every time I move.

RE: Dealer never put TITLE in my name, am I stuck??

I don't know about PA, most states will issue a 30 temp tag to move a vehicle with proven insurance. Check this out before a tow. Blessings; Keith

RE: Surge Protector

My 13 year old progressive industries EMS-50C burnt up do to miss wired power source this last summer. Called progressive and they promptly sent me a new one under warranty after verifying I had one by texting them a picture of it. This unit saved me numerous times in the past, can't enough good about them.

app for dish sat finder

Anybody have a recommendation for an app to do a line of sight satellite finder when setting up a pathway x2 dish to be sure to be clear of obstructions. Did a search and didn't come up with anything, maybe worded my search wrong. Thanks in advance. Blessing; Keith

RE: 50 amp surge protectors

Installed a Progressive Industries EMS-LCHW50 hardwired unit in 2006. Saved me several times. Earlier this summer got connected to a bad power supply and it protected my motor home but burned out the protector. Corrected the power pole and bypassed the unit after reassuring every thing was ok. Called Progressive Industries and told them it was my fault that it was miss wired, they said under warranty we will send you a new no charge. mind you it was 12 years old, can't beat service like that. we were on the road and when we got home 3 days later a new one was sitting on my porch. I also like the remote where I can monitor voltage and amperage inside. Did I say warranteed for life, other manufactorers don't offer this. Blessings;Keith

RE: Roadmaster auxillary toad brake inJeep Wrangler

Mike, I have a hard top with removable panels above the driver and passenger. We have been in driving rain where we had to pull off the road. No leaks, quiet to ride in with no wind whistle either. If you have a soft top I could understand some leakage, but not with a hard top. An idea for you to try and find the leaks in hard top would be to pressurize the interior cabin. The cabin is vented to the outside thru the rear door. If I remember correctly a one way flapper would have to be taped open to the position. Then hook up a shop vac with the hose coming off the exhaust giving pressure. Tape this hose to the vent behind and under th spare tire rack. Turn on the vac and pour soapy water over the jeep and look for bubbles. Now that you found the source of the leak fixing it is your problem. Only idea would be black silicone. Good luck. Blessings; Keith

Roadmaster auxillary toad brake inJeep Wrangler

I have a Roadmaster 9001 auxiliary brake system which is a pneumatic cylinder attached to the brake pedal and a bracket under seat. Worked great in my Buick Lacross. Changed toads to 2015 Jeep wrangler 4 dr. Now the Jeep's brakes are applying to hard leaving the wheels covered in brake dust. Called Roadmaster and was told to install a pressure regulator in line between said cylinder and the brake away reservoir. I believe this is the proper solution. Has anyone done this and if you have what pressure did you set the regulator to? If I have a good starting point I will fine tune it from there. Thanks in advance and have a blessed Thanks Giving; Keith

RE: Replacing Norcold 1200 With A Residential Refer

I was able to get my norcold out by removing the doors from the 1200 and the passenger seat. Brought in a 23,5 cu, ft Samsung the same way. We removed the wall that separated the dinning area from the the norcold, lowered the shelf it sat on and installed the samsung. Nice thing about the Samsung is yes it does require 120 volts AC but that is immediately rectified to a DC voltage, every thing then operates on dc voltage fans, lights, compressors ect. except ice maker I think. So no pure sine wave inverter needed. Also variable speed fans and compressors (dual), which keeps power consumption down. PM me if you would like more info and pics and I will send you my cell # or send me yours and I would be more than happy to talk about how I did mine. To much info to type. Blessings; Keith

RE: Looking for a DP with a back window.

I have 06 Holiday Rambler Ambassador 40 foot, 4 slide DP with a rear window that is also an emergency exit. I like the idea of having a exit in the bed room in case of fire in the front while in bed. Got some awesome views also. So they are manufactured.
