RE: Towing a 2011 Equinox

They also make an easy fuse disconnect switch if needed. Ava, I already have the RV-to-Towed set up configured so that a relay automatically opens the fuse path when the lighting umbilical is plugged in. With the Equinox, no matter the key position, the lighter/power port is DISABLED when the fuse 32 circuit is opened or the fuse pulled. I NEED the power port to be operational to power the Brake System. I was planning to attach the charge line to the HOUSE battery with a power relay between the RV and Equinox batteries. The power relay would be pulled in by the alternator output. That way the alternator would charge both/batteries only when the engine is running and the Equinox would NOT draw from the house battery when the engine is NOT running. For example, if we stop for the night and do not unhook the Equinox, the batteries will be separated and a load on either end would not draw down both batteries. Tim

Towing a 2011 Equinox

I infrequently tow a 2011 Equinox. Because we are heading to Colorado, I am adding an Aux Brake system. I am adding a charge line from the RV. Am I correct in presuming that the Equinox towing set-up will be the same EXCEPT that I to NOT have to pull fuse 32? Thanks.

RE: Mozilla Thunderbird & Win 10

Mozilla Thunderbird & Win 10 - UPDATE I want to thank all of you for your comments and suggestions. I downloaded the new version of Thunderbird Portable and set up a client for me and for my wife. Thunderbird Portable is a stand alone Email Client and does not intermesh with Windows. It can also be resident on and run from an external hard or thumb drive for use anywhere. I have been able to recall all Emails (100 for me, 248 for my wife) since last April 12, the storage cutoff date on the Verizon Email server. I am now working to link up the new Thunderbird with our old contact list and our sent and received data files. Thanks again. I'm gaining on it. Tim

Mozilla Thunderbird & Win 10

While out RVing over the weekend (Saturday at 11:03 AM CDT) HP laptop Win 10 did an update while I was away from the rig. Whatever the "upgrade" was it TOTALLY FUBARed my Thunderbird Portable Email client. I cannot tell if the Win 10 upgrade just broke all of the links or if it also scrambled the settings and/or deleted a bunch of files. I find Tbird folders and files on the HD, but none of the apps or .exe will execute. Between my wife and me, we had every Email (+ attachments) sent or received since 2012. Now we cannot access over 50K historical Emails nor ~300 contacts addresses. We also cannot send nor receive Email. Anybody out there know anything about Thunderbird? Tim

RE: Towing PT cruiser

I would say that IF you can find a base plate (Roadmaster/Blue Ox) it is undoubtedly flat towable. I have seen several PTs being flat towed but I don't know any details or requirements. I flat tow a Miata that EVERYBODY says will self destroy, but Roadmaster has base plates and I have now towed 3 of them over 100,000 miles with no issues. Tim

RE: Thor Freedom elite axxera can radio not working.

Basically, EVERYTHING in front of the drivers & passenger seat backs works from a CHASSIS battery which is under the vehicle hood. EVERYTHING behind the drivers and passenger seat backs works off of a HOUSE battery which us usually found under the step in the entry way. There is probably a big rubber latch on the front of one of the steps. The round power switch by the door switches on and off the HOUSE battery and those things on the indicator panel. That switch has nothing to do with the VEHICLE systems. Your in-dash radio and camera system will be powered by the VEHICLE power system. I cannot tell you what the problem is, but if the radio doesn't light up you probably have a total radio power failure (nothing works) it is most probably a fuse, either in the CHASSIS fuse box or in-line in the dash behind the radio. It also may be a bad ground between the vehicle chassis and the radio itself. You will probably have to take it to an RV dealer or RV repair place. If the radio DOES light up, the problem is probably a menu setting. On my Coachmen Freelander, except in Reverse, I have to press a button to activate the rear camera. I hope I have helped. Sorry I couldn't have helped more. Tim

RE: tow a mini?

An update -- i began towing my mini in 2017 and it does great Thanks for the update, but just curious... After your original post with many favorable responses (including mine), why did it take two years for you to start towing your mini? Tim
