RE: Air brakes on Towed

One concern may arise. When we had our Saturn as a towed, applying the brakes hard in the coach would lock up the Saturn's brakes many times. Of course the Saturn was so light you didn't know it was back there. The10 and the 13 Edges no problems bu this new 19 Edge ST has larger and stronger brakes.Though a bit smaller is is about 400lbs heavier than the 13. Proportional response is the way to go. I looked n line at install and activation of Air Force 1 just a bit ago this evening. AIt still activates by the pedal arm. I had thought it worked on the master cylinder or brake lines. Looks to be the only two games in town it and Roadmaster. I thought there were more options.

Air brakes on Towed

Since 2006we have used the Roadmaster air brake system, with the cylinder that has to be installed an uninstalled every time you hook up or unhook. Airraid I believe is one brand,and Air Force One is another brand of under hood air braking system, that you don't have to disconnect or reconnect anything. Anyone comment on which one you use and of course prices?

CW Flagstaff

WE were going to Flagstaff tomorrow and by Camping World. Wife looked on the Internet and it says store permanently closed. Last month went to Camping World in Henderson, Nevada. It took a long long time as GPS was over 12 miles. Decided when we couldn't first fine it to drive to the one in Vegas.The GPS put us about the same amount on the wrong side of town. Called the one in Henderson on the way back and got the right directions. Store had some few displays of larger items but not one thing that we went there for. What is going on?

RE: Do y'all see the IRONY here?

Saw a mocha?colored Prius on the side of the road yesterday. Enough juice for flashers but that was all, apparently. Sh was on the cell so some help on the way. Wouldn't have done any good for me to stop, s I don't have any kind of adapter form 12 volt to whatever voltage plug. Ad it would have taken the rest of the eevening or longer to get her underway.

RE: Wierd bathroom water problem

This is one reason the primary reason for good or great water filters for every bit of water that enters the Motorhome not just the the drinking water spigot.Every new Motorhome has a built in filter system but older ones,, some don't, and mny times no body changes them and they bypass dirty water into the Coach. I've trying to figure out how to intall a filter inside our bay with limited space

RE: Kwikee Stairs failure rate

Our Kwikee steps are original to the 15 yr old motorhome. Only problems we had were lubing the parts at the motor and step joints with a grease. It gathered a lot of dirt and froze things up. Since then nothing but silicone spry. They still get stuck from road dirt when it rains hard sometimes. I think there is a shield missing to keep road spray from hitting as you go down the road. I had to squirt the step swing points or joints the other day with silicone. We have kept them extended and it rained and snowed. On the way out here at a RV park in Ark I opened the door to exit and get us in close and putting jacks dwwn position for utilities and the step hit a railroad tie around their plantings and broke the pot metal arm that operates the steps from the motor. RV Park Mgr came to the rescue with a part. There is another manufacture that produces a set of steps that look almost just, like the Kwikee but has sealed bearings and joints I don't remember the brand but it is something like Seakins. Then there are the new extend only type steps, which are a step up in design, that are made t fit the same openings but about1400.00 but can be had for much less. If you can mange to get under the step area, use some diaelectric compound on the plug or electrical splices.The plastic like kind is much better than the older petroleum based diaeltric grease. One electric is secure wash the steps off with lots of water pressure before lubing with silicone. Heat shrinks on wire joints if need be should keep all moisture out. Wires to the switches may need looking at. And...did someone turn off the step in the closed position by accident. Our control panel is right in the entry way.You can turn them off with steps extended and that is okay as the safety interlock when you put in in gear will retract the steps but better still have the switch in the on position.

Are yu Hungry?

Because of the hour and other things we areeating Hungry Man Turkey aand dressing dinners. It says on the box 15 grams of protein. That is about an eighth of an ounce, I believe. So maybe we need to fix about ten of them and just eat the dressing and such from only one of them Probaably a whole ounce of turkey in ten dinners.

RE: I expect a 10 cent price increase in diesel

Te new diesels don't stink with the fuel available now. Don't even smell the french fries of Bio diesel, so to speak. I have no intention of doing it but supposedly you can breath from the exhaust pipes of new diesels, no pollutants. so why would we need to make diesel essentially into an expensive kerosene? I said I expected a ten percent increase others ae saying as much a a $1.25 a gallon initially. And the Industry and Washington is remaining silent about it. We have to pay it or park it. They have no intentions of protecting us from the designs of those tying to force America into electric vehicles and on bicycles.

I expect a 10 cent price increase in diesel

clicky I've been reading a few of the reports on the effect of the 2020 sulfur reduction standards for gas and diesel. I don't see the problem but global Environmentalists are really affecting our pockets. Some say a price increase of 2 cent a gallon. I hope they are right or a bit high.

RE: Flying J and Pilot moving toward B20 diesel?

I think this is more state regulations than fuel station choice. Personally, traveling across the country I have encountered regen problems from buying fuel in western states. I think it is not only the high amount of bio but what the bio is made from. Dig it out on the Internet. Teh administration increased the mandatory amount of ethanol that must be incorporated into gasoline. I don't remember the amount. Biodiesel for Soy etc also,I think but don't quote me.

RE: Driver Ticketed For Towing Semi Trailer With Pickup Truck

I don't have any tickets. Back in the seventies We were stopped and a city policeman in Windsor,I think, Ontario walked up and told me I should take the radar detector out of the windshield.I found that it worked just as well in a place in the dash.

RE: Driver Ticketed For Towing Semi Trailer With Pickup Truck

Canada likes to enforce things.Their highway signs use to say Safety Through Enforcement. I thought to myself all the sign needs is a picture of Uncle Joe Stalin with right hand in salute.Anyone that would put a 25kph on a divided four lane road is nuts. or a 100kph 60 mph or so limit on arrow straight four lane or even two lane sections of Trans Canada and other roads are rigid dictatorial freaks.Many years ago I wondered about all that as we saw many places where vehicles had run off the road on both sides. They went to sleep at the wheel I was informed at a Tim Hortons, in conversation with someone we sat with. And there was talk of lowering the speed limits even more as a result. That section of rod was near huge fields stretchign to the horizon with cabages I think and barns big enough to handle a couple of C5As
