Towing Chevy Silverado

I have a 2014 Tahoe currently and setting it up to tow is very easy and once complete the ignition is turned off and key removed. I am thinking about getting a Silverado to tow so I can load my motorcycle in the back. When I looked at the instructions on how to setup for towing it stated to disconnect the battery cable and leave the keys in the ignition. I'm wondering why this is needed and if the battery is disconnected how to I power on and use my brake buddy ?

RE: Fish bowl cooling class A

Thanks guys all good input for changes and things to check. Especially running a separate duct from the front ac to the **** pit area. I also heard about the tint, which is supposed to cut down on the heat and is not dark or visible as a tint to Johnny law, po po, 5 O, occifer, smoky, (more new words for your vocabulary) ??

RE: Fish bowl cooling class A

Doug - never heard “fishbowl” come on man, that’s been around for 41 years :) And Robs post is right on the money as far as a mandalay is concerned I would love to add another ac unit above the fish bowl, but unfortunately that is where direct tv lives. I need DT when I’m camping, and roughing it.

RE: Fish bowl cooling class A

Roof ac units are the high capacity 15 amp and not too old. When parked they do a great job. Yup been thinking about a portable ac unit as well. The ducting to a window might be a PITA. Would love to hear from anyone who has done this. Was also thinking of those units they hang over the door of businesses they put out a lot of air

RE: Fish bowl cooling class A

Tried the Fan, not good enough. Have 2 ac units on roof, they don’t cool the fish bowl when driving. Sorry I can’t drive away from the sun or time trips for early morning or later evening. Have cooled the fish bowl before start of trip and it stays cool for a while, then it gets hot. Maybe I should install one of those residential attic fans in the ceiling? Maybe not, would get me wet when it rains

Fish bowl cooling class A

I have always had a problem cooling and heating the fish bowl on my RV. The dash air has never cooled the fish bowl and the front air does not send enough air while driving to the front. I’ve tried directing the flow to the front, using a fan to push the cool air to the front, nothing works. Also I do drive mostly out west with temps over 90 many times. So has anyone done any creative ac mods to help this situation ? Like replacing the dash ac system and putting in something that works, or adding some type of stand alone ac unit in the front ? Let me know Jcat 2004 Mandalay 40 D

Best Toad Brake controller Battery

On my trip last week I drove my Tahoe around for the week once I got to the destination in Sedona. When I went to depart on Saturday the Tahoe battery did not have enough power to pump up and maintain my brake buddy. This is the first time this has happened. I have 2 brake buddies, a primary and a spare and both said no go. So I figured I need a new battery. I was thinking I should get more of a deep cycle so it would last during my trips of 6 to 8 hours. Or go back to harbor freight and get the cheap solar panel to charge the battery while going down the road. Anyone tried a different type of battery for this application ? Thanks for the feedback.
