RE: Travel trailer warranty

My wife found a very good description of extended service plans a while back (they are not warranties, but rather insurance policies with lots of fine print). They are another form of legalized gambling. The company is betting that nothing breaks that would cause them to pay out more than you paid for the policy; you're betting it will. As in all forms of legalized gambling, the house usually wins. Otherwise, these companies wouldn't be in business or make a profit. We prefer to set money aside regularly (earning interest) and pay for repairs as they come up. Rob

RE: FMCA Verizon data plan no more

Yeah... I got an email from FMCA recently. They seem to have replaced the Verizon plan with a Sprint unlimited plan for $49.99. Rob

RE: Lithium heating pads

Yes. I have Battle Born LiFePO4 batteries and just used their thermostat-controlled heating pads. Not cheap, but very easy. Rob

RE: Lost two local TV channels, options?

How about an antenna and watching the OTA broadcast - or are you so far up a holler you have to pipe in the sunlight? Rob

RE: Login Security Warning

To answer the questions posted here. I am using Chrome and I normally use the goodsamclub portal but I get the same warning if I'm using the or trailerlife portals. I used to use Firefox but that got to be a little too buggy for me so I started using Chrome. Maybe I'll give Microsoft Edge a try. I already have it but have never used it. Just a thought... have you tried clearing all browsing history in Chrome (including cookies) and signing back into everything? Rob

RE: Login Security Warning

Which portal are you using? Using the Good Sam portal, I get no error messages or warnings at all (Windows 10, Chrome). Good Sam Portal Rob

RE: Towing challenges with flagstaff 25FKS

Skip the 3/4-diesel. Diesel drivetrains are heavy and eat up the payload on a 3/4-ton truck. Go straight for a 1-ton single rear wheel. For your purposes, though, the new, big, gas engines would do fine (still low fuel mileage). Yes - a heavier truck will handle the trailer better. Allison does not make engines - they make transmissions. The Allison transmission is usually paired with the Duramax diesel in GM trucks. Cummins engines are found in Ram trucks and the third option is the PowerStroke diesel in Ford trucks. They are all capable powerplants. Rob

RE: Remembrances of vacuum tube days

I grew up immersed in the same activities as you, Mr. Ed - just a couple of years behind. I even worked at an electronic and photo supply and repair shop in our small hometown in New Mexico while I was in high school. Many years later, one of my lieutenants in the Army (seeing me as "the old man"), brought me a cartoon he had clipped out of something. The image was of an older, gray-haired man standing at a window above which was a sign saying, "PARTS." the older man was holding up a vacuum tube. The kid behind the counter said, "Light bulbs are on isle 12, pops." The lieutenant thought it was funny... Rob

RE: A pretty nutty motorhome

Is it for sale? There were no signs. I don't know what it was doing there - I didn't see anyone around. Rob

RE: Buying a New RV

Camping World has a horrible reputation for RV sales. We shopped there a few years ago despite their reputation just to see for ourselves, and it was a bad experience too. I am doing my best to not buy from them. We found two we really liked there. There is one I really like that is at my local dealer. I am bringing my wife to look at it tomorrow. It is a Grand Design Pinnacle 28BH. "Pinnacle" is a Jayco brand name. There is a Grand Design Reflection 28BH - is that what you meant? Rob

RE: Wingard Playmaker

I would suggest that you look into the Pathway X2. X2^^. It has the largest reflector of the automatic portables and pulls in the strongest signals. Have been using our for 5+ years and we're very happy with it. Rob

RE: Picking a new rig

"Mythical manufacturers" would mean that the manufacturers don't exist. Can you unpack that statement for me a little. We are on our second Grand Design fifth wheel (first a Reflection and now a Solitude). We were obviously happy with the first GD and our dealer or we wouldn't have have gone back the second time. We've not had any significant issues or warranty work done with either trailer. Rob

RE: Does anyone use an aftermarket Tire pressure system?

A lot of us in "Towing World" do. My 2012 F350 DRW didn't come with one, so I use a TireMinder A1A with 10 sensors for the truck and the fifth wheel (it will monitor up to 22 tire positions if I wanted to put sensors on both spares). Before I started using Sailun load range G tires on the trailer, the TPMS saved my butt a couple of times. Rob

RE: Anybody run Lithium battery bank with solar

We have the Grand Design factory 300 watt solar option (300 watt panel, Jaboni charge controller, Magnum Dimensions inverter) and two Battle Born 100AH LiFePO4 batteries. We ordered it this way to run the residential refrigerator on long travel days or when the power goes out for a while at a park (as it did here at Aberdeen Proving Ground this summer when a contractor ran over the park transformer with a Bobcat). The system does a good job at what we wanted it for. It will also run the furnace and lights overnight and recharge the batteries the next day... providing there is some sun. If you want to run a BUNCH of stuff and seriously boondock, I think you would want more wattage and amp-hours. We've had zero issues with any of the equipment, though. Rob

RE: Strange advice

Driving a huge trailer too fast on cheap Chinese tires of unknown age, carrying unknown weight, what could possibly go wrong? The OP states that they are running "GY Marathon tires." Where do you get "cheap Chinese tires?" Rob
