RE: Chevy Equinox

Some versions can, some can't. Like said, read the owners manual for the model you are interested in. It tells the story, and how, if it can be done.

RE: Boondocking Etiquette

I have found - all bets are off if you leave, the site becomes available. I would not intrude on a marked site but many people would.

RE: 4 down dinghy towing

That would be a relatively long list. Better to have an idea of you want in a towed vehicle. i.e. all wheel drive, auto or manual transmission, big or small, or ??? Pick something, go online to the manufacturer's web site and verify "recreational towing ability" in the owners manual for the year, make and model.

RE: Good Sam annual inspection

When I was young and our first TT the salesman conned us into a “extended warranty “ and we had to let the dealer do an annual inspection. The came back and said there’s a few spots on the roof needing caulking (8 months after purchase) and wanted $300! Two months later I got refunded the “warranty” and have been doing my own inspections and maintenance. Those are rip-offs. Same here, I read the contract thoroughly, a 4 year extended service plan, expires July 2021. I won't be renewing or seeking any other kind of extended plan. Maybe if I can find a drive train only deal that will cover major engine, transmission, rear axle items with a big deductible, I would go that way. To date, I have gotten nearly all of my premium payment back. Though it would not be as expensive if I had DIY the fixes myself. Use of the extended service plan is a royal PIA!

RE: Good Sam annual inspection

To me, that would be a gimick to sell you something. Maybe a seal up your joints, caulking, etc. They will inspect, look your RV over, and try to sell you something. IMO.

RE: Newfoundland

We have been thinking about a trip from our Northern NY home on the St. Lawrence into Canada; going through Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and back through Maine. This trip will be if the border opens soon enough this summer. We have been planning a trip through Canada to Alaska for 2 years, maybe 2022 will be it.

RE: Recording maintence

I keep everything in an Excel spreadsheet on my computer. This, I keep the file on my google drive and can get it on my phone device as well.

RE: Diluted RV Antifreeze

So, after all this - is there something I can use in the grey/black tanks that will take some amount of water/dilution and not freeze? I'm thinking, leving northern NY in 0-20 deg. weather and heading south. Just beable to use the bathroom for washing, etc. till we get a day to the south. BTW - I winterize by draining everything and adding pink stuff to the system. I've figured that a small amount in the black & gray tanks will not hurt the tank if it freezes. We have left Michigan in January & February, headed to Florida, used highway rest stops mostly the first day and night. Then after that not worried about the tanks. Dusty Yup, my plan, was just looking to not needing to use rest stop facilities in the current state of things. We will manage.

RE: Great time to Sell Your RV!

CW is betting that the RV boom will continue and that mfrs can't keep up with demand for new units, so they are buying used from all the out of work folks that want to get out from under their RV payment. Then the title of this thread might be (Great time to Sell, and/or Buy an RV). Which is what I am looking at doing.

RE: Remove Ford Dually hubcap

Two of those "fake" lugnut caps have little dimples in them, they unscrew from the lugs then the cap will come off.

RE: Interpreting Caster Alignment Specs

Caster DOES affect tire wear. When you turn the wheels the tire and wheel assemble will roll over on it side. You will get excessive wear on the both sides of the front tires. If you ever have a chance, watch the front tires of a class A fuel dragster. You can see the effects of extreme, excessive caster. I run about 7° caster on the front of my 95 F53 and you can see the wear. Richard Probably so but the advantage in handling is well worth the minimal wear. AND, in the life of an RV tire, it will age out before it wears out; unless there is some other contributing factor.

RE: Interpreting Caster Alignment Specs

I had a shop do my 2010 F53. They do a lot of F53 chassis. Talked them beforehand about the handling. They set the caster - 7-3/4 left and 8-1/4 right. Handles like a dream. Mine is the 22,000 GVWR. All the left/right wandering is gone.

RE: What do you do with ash/coals ?

Dumping ashes and/or coals in a dumpster will eventually bring trouble. No way anyone providing that dumpster would approve of such action. If at a campground, ask the management, if in the wilderness, ask a ranger. If you can't figure out what to do with the ashes/coals, don't start the fire in the first place.

RE: Dinghy Towing

I'm buying a 2015 Honda Fit as a tow behind my Class A. I'm 30,000 lbs it's 2500 lbs do I need a braking system in the car? ... Doug "need" is a four letter word in my book, regardless of the law. WANT is a much better term for adding a braking system to your toad for dingy towing.
