RE: Trailering after a stroke

Hope you have a quick and full recovery, but you are asking the question to a bunch of civilians. You've received some good responses. You might try to go see a doctor who does FAA pilot certifications. They have some very strict protocols. To me, driving or towing a RV is not much different than flying a small airplane. You can kill or injure a bunch of people including you and your significant other.

RockJock baseplate on Wrangler JL with factory steel bumper?

Is anybody using the RockJock CE-9033JLS tow bar baseplate on their Wrangler JL with the factory steel bumper? After reading the instructions, installation looks very straightforward. Comments only on this product please.

Towing 2018 Jeep JL Unlimited with dolly?

We're not new to the dinghy world having towed several JK Jeeps four down. Have 2018 Rubicon that I would like to tow two down because I found a really good deal on a dolly with brakes, lights and correct capacity. Would cost much less that base plate, tow bar, lights and brake for four down. Book says not to tow four down. Debate on the Internet over this question has inconclusive answers. Anybody here towing a Jeep JL Unlimited with automatic using a dolly?

RE: Death Wobble Continues ....

This is an all too common problem with some Jeeps especially lifted, modified Wranglers but also stock models. Not sure about Cherokees. Also, a big problem is some older Ram trucks. Go to for an information overload.

RE: New Montana purchase

Is it common for camping world to want you to do a walk through and hook up to the rig before knowing what your payment, interest rate, bank information is going to be? That's what they did to us. I didn't want to hook up and do a walk through in case we didn't agree on the terms kinda seemed like putting the cart before the horse. They looked at me like I was crazy and said that's how they always do it and nobody's ever asked to know that info first. I think they want you to feel like it's yours before you sit down with finance to get the particulars. That's not how I do business!! Could never get a finance guy to call me to talk numbers after the first meeting with the salesman. Ignored me for 2 weeks, and 5 messages. Meet sales class 101. Get the customer to put their hands on it or as they want to hook it to your truck. It makes it almost psychologically impossible for the buyer to unhook it. Nothing wrong with a full walk through before setting down at the table. If the finance guy won't talk numbers with you then just walk. This is just plain sleazy sales tactics. We've given CW a couple of tries at selling us an RV over almost 20 years. Had to walk both times for seller trying to deal off the bottom of the deck. Wouldn't suggest buying from CW. Did you call your Credit Union or look at other finance options before walking in the door? You didn't say what brand or model you were looking at. Do some research and find reputable sellers. Take a cruise through RV Trader on the net searching for your model. There are some very big volume dealers on that site. The wife bought our first diesel pusher via the internet from De Martini. We drove from Colorado to Iowa and got a great deal on a eight month old used unit that had 2300 miles on it.

RE: Honda EU2000i at high altitude

I lived in Colorado at 8200' for 30 years and used a pair of Honda generators for various uses since for more than 15 years. Since you are only going to charge a 12v battery at 7000', don't worry about it. When you get to around 10,000' and above, even a pair of them in parallel they will get "breathless" trying to run the A/C, a toaster oven, TV, lights, etc. Like I said not to worry about changing jets.

RE: Park Reviews

I have found Good Sam reviews sometimes reliable but all too often not. We've stay in some GS parks rated a 10 that I would have not given a 5 to at best. I have found this forum and more reliable than Good Sam when planning trips.

RE: What must we do in Colorado?

You are probably too late for Estes Park in July. You will also have to make reservations for entering RMNP. Don't waste your time.

Lippert bed tilt issues

Why is it that everything goes wonky on the weekend when Winnebago tech support is closed? Here is my problem... Got the MH at the house doing spring cleaning. Put the slides out and extended the bed. No problem. Today I went to tilt the bed up before retracting the slides. The bed goes up about four inches and stops. Having lost a control board in the past I knew where to find it. Both the red and green light are both flashing simultaneously at a rapid rate. I've checked all connections, killed the house power and also pressed the reset button on the control board. Neither the switch above the bed nor the wall switch is working. When the switch is depressed I can hear the relay click. Absolutely nowhere can I find a reference to the lights both flashing simultaneously. Anybody got a clue?

Summer campgrounds in Utah?

Around the first of August we are headed south out of Wyoming through Utah. Don't want to arrive back in Arizona sooner than we have to. Was thinking of jumping off I15 around Provo and heading south along the higher mountains. Anybody got any suggestion of places to stay for multiple days. Would prefer full hookups.

RE: It's been a great run!

You have personally helped me over the years, and I have learned from how you helped others. Good luck and best wishes.

RE: Can a generator get rained on?

This is my favorite quote: soren wrote: I use a Honda 2000, on a daily basis as a homebuilder. It runs eight hours a day, sitting in the mud, snow or on a gravel pile. It has spent days in the pouring rain, seen a few snow storms, and got peed on by a dog. After three years, the case is banged up a bit, it needs a tune-up and an oil change. As for a rain cover......seriously? Don't forget to knit a little sweater for it's chilly out. Sounds like my pair of Honda 2000. Only difference is mine are about 15 years old. Only problem I've had is when the temps get down in the low teens and they are cold soaked over night. They are more a bit cranky especially when they have summer oil in them.

RE: question about service

Your first mistake was buying at CW, the second was taking it to them for service. Find another dealer for your unit or call a mobile tech. You will have nothing but headaches dealing with CW.

RE: Order placed on Web Site

What could you possibly buy from CW that you couldn't buy on Amazon, PPL or eBay?

RE: Remembrances of vacuum tube days

Been watching this thread, but haven't had a chance to reply. We got our first TV in 1952 or '53 when I was three or four years old. My dad had a WWII friend who kept stuff flying and fighting. He transitioned to the new technology. I started watching him work on our televisions. One of the first things he did was look to see if the vacuum tubes were glowing. When I was about ten or eleven our TV quit working. I took the back off the TV and looked around. I saw a tube that wasn't glowing. I pulled the tube and convinced my mother to take me to 7/11 which had one of those tube testers. Sure enough it was bad. The clerk pulled a replacement from the cabinet underneath. When my dad got home from work the TV was working. He said to mother you called me at work and told me the TV wasn't working. Mother told him the story. After that thay gave me lots of things to fix. I transitioned into computers in 1968... The rest is history. I still fix stuff that should be pitched.

RE: Any one else giving up snow birding due to the covid

My bad. Of course I meant vaccine. A Freudian slipi thought as much, but as with many Freudian Slips, it was worth a chuckle. Dave We call them brain farts:)

RE: Extended warranty

I'm against buying extended warranties. How much is that going to cost? Put that money aside for IF you need it and collect the interest, buying it is betting somethings going to break. Most everything that can break can be bought for $1000 +/- plus labor. Buying new warranty should have everything fixed before it runs out. If you are a DYI type you'll save a lot more. Please tell me how to collect any useable interest on chump change set aside for immediate use if needed.

RE: Dome Satellite is it capable of getting service??

The 2005 TracVision is so out of date that it is not worth the brain damage. The VHS should be a clue. Your coax is not up to date either. Take a deep breath an do lots of research and or wait for the real techies here to comment.

RE: Avondale C W service

Heck, I'm still waiting on a call back to purchase a new 2016 Winnebago Journey. Needless to say I bought it somewhere else. I've never had good luck with any call backs from CW. Needless to say, I haven't done any business with them in many years. Don't know what possessed me to think that things had changed in 2016.
