RE: Air brakes on Towed

M&G is great and we have used their system on 4 different tow vehicles over the last 20 years. However, they are limited by the number of vehicles it fits. The folks that have installed my M&G's recommend Air Force 1 for the other vehicles. I had the normal M&G system on my 2014 Ram 1500, but when I got the new 2019 Ram 1500, there isn't enough room at the brake master cylinder for the original system, but they have another system that uses a cylinder mounted in the engine compartment that pulls the brake pedal, still hooks up and operates exactly the same way, but fits way more vehicles.

RE: Air brakes on Towed

We have been using M&G for 6 years and about 60,000 miles in 2 different vehicles. Very pleased!

RE: Continental Tires PSI rising 20

Mine go up at least that much. What is the problem? They are designed to do it, and before TPMS you never knew or even thought about how much they increased.

RE: Blue Ox Tow Bar

One more pro Blue Ox. I have installed at least 6 base plates on many different vehicles with no problems whatsoever, and have used Blue Ox tow bars for over 25 years. We have been to the factory, talked to their customer support and even had them use our new vehicle as a template to develop a new base plate for a new model truck. As to the nuts on a wire, how else would you get the nuts to where they need to be?

RE: Garmin GPS

My comment about the 780 seems to be ignored. We have had a 760 replaced by a 770 and now also have a 780. Yes, we run both the 770 and the 780, and the 780 is significantly improved over the 770, much easier to create routes, better interface, much better.

RE: Garmin GPS

We now have a 780 and like it very much, a huge improvement over the 760.

RE: building new campground

As a comparison, at least in terms of a stopover location, here's a campground that is about 5-6 miles off the interestate http://www.benchmarkrv.net/index.html I've stayed there once on my way to Texas, and plan on staying there again on my Christmas Texas trip. It's $30 per night, but with Good Sams, I think it was $25 or $28 Concrete pads... all pull through's, Full Hook Up including cable and wifi. Now, if you have a 50 amp rig, there is a slight up charge, EVEN if you say you will use the 30 amp plug. It was only a couple bucks, no big deal really. We use this park often when we are moving from west to east, no facilities, full 50 amp hookups, and we don't mind the distance off the highway. It's a decent place to stop over night. Fairly close to the freeway. So, I would say comparable to what OP might be thinking. Just an example of what you might want to be prepared to offer/plan for. Didn't take up a lot of room. Two rows if I remember correctly. Mike

RE: building new campground

For overnighters I would go with 30 amp electric only and a central hose bib. No shower house, no club house, no dump, no swimming pool. Just a place to get a quiet night of rest. Probably cut your price a bit and see where it goes. You can always add more amenities but once that money is spent and this thing never takes off it could just be a sink hole. If it does take off you can keep your overnight section and start building a full service section. Well, I don't mind the 8 miles in the least, but this would keep me away.OK so enjoy the free WM or truck stop near the interstate and run your generator all night. Or pay $50+ for full services that are probably not used for an overnight. I guess I should have been more specific in my answer. I couldn't care less about electric only, no showers, no club house, no dump, no pool, I do care about only 30 amp. I'm not starting a new can of worms but we haven't ever stayed at Walmarts, truck stops, etc, although we do boondocks now and then. My coach is much happier on 50 amp particularly in the heat than 30 and that would keep us away, not the 8 miles.

RE: building new campground

I'll add another full timer's opinion. We'd travel 8 miles anytime if it's a nice setting with reasonable room in the site and for maneuvering. I get such a kick out of some of these comments, it sounds like so many of you drive constantly, 300, 400, ,500 or more miles a day everyday, only have time for a Walmart. I'm curious where are you going? We travel 10,000 or more miles every year, get itchy after staying somewhere for more than a week, and cover a lot of ground. 8 miles is nothing. Good luck with your project. Finding campgrounds is getting harder and harder all over this country.

RE: Slides - Monaco & Holiday Ramblers Owners

Had minimal damage on the flush floor and installed the Guardian Plates last summer. Went easy once you get over the fear of doing it. Popping the rivets is the hardest item. Don't wait as the rot can move quickly. No, luckily I had no damage, i could see wear on the bottom and wanted to get it done before damage or any chance of rot.

RE: Slides - Monaco & Holiday Ramblers Owners

I have installed them on my front two slides, one flush floor and one raised floor. Chris makes a quality product that is fairly easy to install. I will install them on the rear two slides this winter.

RE: Motorcycle carrier for a diesel pusher

We had a Hydralift for several years, worked well. I think the best lift, but you don't say what model coach you have. You need to calculate the weight of the lift and the bike hanging off the rear to be sure your coach can carry it.

RE: Please read the signs....

This happens literally everywhere to the point that if some one actually pulled back to the right lane I would be amazed.

RE: Balancing Rear Tires?

If you put that **** in your tires, be sure to let anyone that works on that tire assembly know in the future before they do anything to it. It can make problems for them if you don't. You'll need filters on your valve stems to keep it out or your tire gauge. Not true in all cases. The filters in the stem comes from using powder. I have used Dynabeads in my last 3 sets of tires. They are sized bigger than the stems, they ride fine, nice and smooth, and other than sticking them in when the tire is mounted on the rim, nothing else is required.
