RE: Happijac bed modfication

I did some searching, really didn't come across anyone that had swapped out the trolley systems. It does appear that etrailer sells parts, you might check things out there and even reach out to them directly.

RE: I hate roundabouts -- but maybe I am wrong

I've gotten used to them, with that said what I hate about them is the Junior Speed racers that fly through them a top speed. I'd love to see small speed bumps as you enter just to slow traffic down a bit, then it would flow smooth I think. Where I live we call them Officer Roundabout. He's doing great about busting the DUI drivers that can't navigate them. One round about in town, has nailed some where like 19 drivers that have crashed through 1 fence.

RE: Zion to Bryce

On our way back from Bryce we took Hwy 20, all seemed fine. On the way there from Zion we did backtrack a bit to Hurricane and took Hwy 59/389/89 through Kanab. Very hot, but nice ice cream shop in Kanab.

RE: Susanville, CA to Bend, OR

Bit of a toss up, but I'd take Hwy 139 to KFalls, Hwy 97 out of KF to Bend is an easy drive but a bit boring till you meet up around Hwy 58.

RE: Navion 24 trips GFCIs

I don't think this will resolve your issue, but it could. With power disconnected pull one of the breakers. See if they use the back stab jacks or if the wires are screwed in. If they used the stab jacks I'd go through each outlet and change it. I had some odd issues with mine my 1st year, I've never had those phantom issues after I changed every single plug. To me the the stab jacks should never be used, but in an RV where things bounce around they are even worse.

RE: Left side lights 2008 WW CR3705

So hard to say, so many places wires can rub (and wear the plastic. Hope it's a quick and easy fix.

RE: Salt Lake City to Spokane Wa.

Google will tell you the shortest route is I15 to I90, that said you in the mountains so your speed will be reduced to some degree. Taking I84 through Boise and cutting off at I82 at Hermiston to US395 at Kennewick to I90 at Ritzville might be a faster route. You only have one significant pass and that's going down hill after La Grande, OR. The key here is to check the weather, the area from Hermiston through Kennewick (Tri-Cities) and on to Ritzville can be very windy. Just know before go. The drive through Montana is a lot prettier though.

RE: SOLVED: Location of Starter Solenoid Switch: 2006 F53

Pretty sure mine is located in with my batteries, never really gone looking for it just general observation from memory when I've been working on the batteries.

RE: Idaho raising rates at selected state parks

That type of fee increase will discourage me from future visits to Idaho State parks. I don't blame them for the hikes, tough when locals can't get in their own campgrounds. But jacking rates up twice as much says a lot. Oregon appears to want and appreciate my out of State tourist dollars.

RE: Dog fence when sitting outside camper with dog

tarheelman I never really noticed until recently but I'm seeing more and more campgrounds ban the pet fences. Mowing was the reason at one place, another said it was an insurance requirement and one other said they've had to many jump over and take after another animal or left outside alone. I'm not sure the real reason why it seems to be more common now, but just be sure you call ahead and verify the rules of the campground you are at.

RE: Updated Toy Hauler

Congratulations. We upgraded to a more luxury model a few years ago and couldn't be happier. Luxury? I think the The Taj Mahauler is beyond Luxury, I'm just not sure where your "staff" sleep ;) I second the thought, share some pics & congratulations.

RE: Suggestion to purchase an SUV to tow behind my Class A!

A good first place to start looking is to check the Motorhome Magazine Dinghy Towing Guides is a great place to start, however it was last updated in 2020 so it’s dated and I’m unsure if they will be updating for 2021. It provides a great overview, but doesn’t get into many details. Keep in mind that some vehicles that could be towed one year might not be recommended the next year, either changes to electronics, transmission, engine or the bean counters can all influence the change. The ultimate authority is the actual Owners Manual that came with the vehicle. In most cases you can do a Google Search with the year make and model to find one online. But you will want to verify with the actual owners manual of that vehicle to be sure since sometimes the online ones might differ from the actual. Generally speaking you want to look for the section on "Recreational Towing" in the owners manual. There are users that find out that they can tow four down just fine, going against what the manufacture states. If you go this route you’re on your own if there are any damages, this is why many won’t risk violating the warranty by towing against the owners manual recommendation.

RE: KZ Connect C231RBKSE Refrigerator Quit Working

Ran into a similar problem days away from a big trip. Dealer said they couldn't get it for a week (regular route of the courier) but said we could get one if we picked it up ourselves. Wife took our truck and off she went. Dealer installed it that afternoon/evening and we took our trip. Our rig was only a few months old, thankfully covered under warranty but still nearly ruined our trip. Might see if the dealer could check with other regional shops and work something out.

RE: CA is canceling Red Stickers for 2022

What will be the situation for out of state visitors with dirt bikes? Good question if it follows something like it is now and you have your OHV registered with your State then I think you are good to go. You can read about it here but that's obviously how it is today not what's going to possibly happen.

RE: CA is canceling Red Stickers for 2022

Please keep this discussion non-political and on topic. This is a discussion about the red sticker program and the OHV that will be impacted. Thank you.

RE: Rubber rain gutter spouts ideas

I can see the wind being an issue, either tearing the cover or dislodging the 2x4. What about one of those insulating faucet covers? I'm not sure if the "hook" could wrap around the gutter in anyway where it might stay up.

RE: Rubber rain gutter spouts ideas

Joe I don't know if this would work, but in the storage area of my RV I saw a guy with about an 8.5' or so 2x4 that was laying across the roof, right near the corners. I didn't get why until I asked him, same reason as you pointed out - the cover would bend and break off his rain gutter spouts. What I saw was the 2x4 had rounded corners and was covered with something, maybe duct tape. Now we live in the desert but he'd moved here from Oregon so it made sense. But I did warn him that due to our high winds it might not work out. He must have moved or sold it since I haven't seen him in a few years, but well there is any idea that I've seen.
