RE: Stand Up EZ- Haul Idler car tow dolly info

I know it's not what you asked, but have you looked into flat towing the Fit? Good point IMO , I got different answers from different Honda service dealers regarding 4 down flat towing the Fit. I ended buying the Sonic where everyone agreed that it could be done.

RE: Stand Up EZ- Haul Idler car tow dolly info

Be concerned with tire size, type of brakes either electric or surge, ease of use for the tie down system and the type of loading ramps. Some ramps that are fixed to the dolly can sometimes cause undercarriage damage to a vehicle by dips in a road surface or driveway aprons. Some models have ramps that can be removed. here is a general info link. https://rvshare.com/blog/comprehensive-guide-choosing-right-rv-tow-dolly/

RE: Where is the lever to bypass fresh water tank?

Is your water tank under the dinette seat just behind the drivers seat ? The water fills should be independent of each other. The city water should not fill the water tank. On the exterior of the 26Q, there should be an access door with a keylock located above the generator compartment. That's your freshwater gravity fill port. city water inlet should be on the drivers side above the rear wheels. On some models, its located on the passenger side with close access to the kitchen area.

RE: Chevy 6.0

Might depend on the year GM. I had an 04, 6.0 gasser that had a 4 spd tranny and had no problem hauling a truck camper 11,000# towing a 3000# trailer. The newer 6 spd tranny will handle that load better. I had 4.10 gears, the MH might have 4.56 gears which would be better .

RE: Camera facing front for lowing branches - anyone use.?

I know there have been other places besides my driveway were it would have been really helpful In places like a driveway or any other off road place where you can stop the rv to get out and check the height using a stick or fishing pole would be easier than trying to figure out a camera. When I started out with my first tall rv I used an old short fishing rod which if I placed the handle on top of my head, it would be an inch taller than my rv. I got out of the rv while driving in safe off road situations to check the height. I had to do that maybe 2x before I was able to eyeball things without the help of the pole. You might be over thinking this. Most all over the road public highway situations are not going to be a problem. Common sense tells you to NOT use drive throughs at banks or fast food places and mechanics will guide you into garages.

RE: Ford v10 serpentine belt replacement

I never changed a serp belt but I did have Gates as well as other aftermarket power steering belts jump off a Ford diesel. Ford checked the pulleys and they were fine, the OEM Ford power steering belts stayed on without any problem, on the same pulleys. It might be worth looking into that to see if the V10 has been having any aftermarket serpentine belt problems like I had with the power steering belts.

RE: Camera facing front for lowing branches - anyone use.?

Wireless stuff has been around for some time and they have not figured it all out yet. That's up to you if you want to try a system or not. Im not a fan of anything that's wireless, been burned one two many times. That includes truck camper jacks and air bags :M I have had a lot of wireless issues communicating between the two devices in any type of wireless system. I tried a wireless camera and it fluttered too much to the point where my eyes are still 'blinking' and I don't have the system anymore. :) here is a thread to read for more info..... https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28685612.cfm

RE: 2019 Coachman Freelander 26DS

The only things I would question is: One thing I always suggest to new MH owners is to be aware of a lower rear overhang if you need to park it in your driveway. My rear hitch drags on my driveway apron once I load it up, which is all the time. When it was new and unloaded it just cleared it by 1/2". When I buy new tires I hope a larger tire will solve that. I have the room to move up 1" in diameter which will give me 1/2" in height which I hope will help. MH's in general require a little more work to keep things quiet while enroute because you are riding inside the rv and not towing it. You don't hear pots n pans, A/C shrouds, stove tops and microwave trim-work rattling in fivers. Expect to be fussing with that stuff. I had to use plumbers tape on the screws for my interior AC plastic cover to keep them from loosening up. I used thin foam on the microwave trim and thicker foam on the stovetop. I'm mentioning the last two things because its what I found when I went from trailers to MH's because we changed the way we use our rv's. We used trailers in campgrounds with hookups and smaller MH's for day trips and sleeping in non campground places. We now tend to go off the beat n path with the MH. 1. If you had to use that floorplan with the slides 'in' , would you be able to access the things you need ? 2. The queen bed is a folding queen which I do not think can be used unless the slide is deployed. That matters to some people that boondock overnight in rest areas or other places where they would like to remain more stealth.

RE: 2020 fortest river 2250 with chevy

If you plan on sleeping on the folding queen bed you better make sure the Golden can climb a bunk ladder. I have a 2350 FR and so far its been perfect during its first 11,000 miles and I drive it in and out of big cities full of potholes. If the flat screen stays on the wall, its a good sign. :)

RE: Taking the Boat and SUV along

I would forget to set the emergency brake on the suv and end up towing an empty trailer :B

I do not use a cover but the people who have invested in Calmark covers seem to like them. Calmark covers

RE: No Privacy Curtain w/Overhead Bed?

Believe me, even with a curtain they’ll still know you’re fooling around up there. :):) Helmets are probably a good idea. :)

RE: Bike Rack That Won't Interfere with Dinghy

I would check the warranty of the rack to be sure they recommend their brand/model behind an RV, but even if so, it's still up to you keep it secure due to statutes in most states. If a bike falls off, it's your baby not Thule's . My 24' E450 has a tendency to pound over bumps because its underloaded. I feel much more stress would be placed on any bike rack installed on the rear of my type of MH. Therefore I decided to leave the bikes at home .

RE: "C". Or Super C?

Does the expense to maintain it matter ?

RE: head lights

Use a long #2 Phillips screwdriver . There is an access hole above the headlight with a long downward reach to the adjuster on the back of the light housing. The adjuster is very easy to turn with no or little resistance. thank you for your reply have to look for that Locate things during daylight hours and use a narrow beam flashlight to look about 12-14" down the nickel size hole to view the adjuster on the back of the light housing. Once you done that, its a lot easier to do the adjustment in the dark. My adjuster is so loose, it didn't seem like it was doing anything...felt like it was broken, just spinning. If you watch the headlight beam against a wall , you will actually see the beam move up and down, depending on clockwise or counter clockwise adjustment.

RE: Getting ADCO Windshield Cover Into Storage Bag?

I really never realized that people cover windshields from the exterior. If you pull into a overnight spot in bad weather, you have to get out of the MH to install it then try to pack it away when its wet. Isn't it easier to cover the windshield from the inside, where you install it and fold it up dry ?

RE: Norcold frig?

It might be an easy fix. Is it on? Unplug the thermistor. That will call for max cold. If it gets cold, there is your problem. Just curious for future reference, as we have the same model in our 2005 RV ... where is the thermistor and what does it look like? Thanks in advance! The 2nd pic is a 611 with location and wiring detail. https://www.arprv.com/norcold-thermistor.php

RE: Clean Water Heater

Don't have a winterizing kit, live in SoCal. Want to know if I can fill hot water tank with vinegar/water solution by removing pressure relief valve and filling though the orifice. I would think you could do that as long as there is a way for air to get out as you fill with vinegar/water. I think that's the easiest thing for you to do too. After all, to change a bad PR valve you would unscrew it and replace it.
