RE: Toilet bowl no longer holds water

So do you take the rubber seal off, or do you squeeze the wire between it and the flapper? turn the water off and hold the flapper open with your foot. i left the gasket in place and *gently* run the edge if the coat hanger (anything like that will do...pipe cleaner, flat toothpick, etc) clean the crevice.

RE: Toilet bowl no longer holds water

didn't look at the link but this was our fix. there should be a rubber gasket lining the perimeter of the flapper opening. we found that there was a buildup of 'stuff' in the crevice of that gasket into which the edge of the flapper would be inserted. the 'stuff' was preventing the flapper from completely sealing. the more 'stuff' the faster the bowl will empty. we took a metal hanger and used the end to *GENTLY* scrape that crevice to clear the 'stuff'. did I mention do this *GENTLY*? good luck.

RE: thoughts on our 2019 Rubicon

My wife left the fob in her purse in the car in our garage. It quickly wore out the battery in the fob cause the fob constantly "talks" to the car. is the battery commercially available anywhere or must owner's go back to Jeep and take out a loan to replace? It’s a simple watch battery, I believe a CR2020? And whatever you do don’t drop it between the seats!! It will fall down into the abyss of the center console. I’ve had to retrieve 3 now. And 2 were the same guy 2 different times. It kept falling out of his pocket. At least put it in your left pocket. thanks. if we were ever to get a new Jeep with that system the fob would live on our key rings. I saw an item in the stores a while back, a plastic wedge with an open top that slips between the seat and the center consoles. 'sposed to prevent items from falling into that black hole by catching or at least defecting them.

RE: Blue Beacon Truck Wash

are the pressure washers, soap, etc. enemies of clear coat? been wondering if it would be safe for our MH. also don't want to unnecessarily delay the OTR truckers...after all, they are at work.

RE: thoughts on our 2019 Rubicon

push button start hasn't been around for 55-yrs. Actually, it has - early vehicles had a starter button on the floorboard. The military vehicles I drove in the early '70s definitely had them - a button behind the clutch pedal: push the clutch all the way in and your toe contacted the starter switch... Not quite the same,, manual contactor vs electronic circuit boards. correct. absolutely not the same. my '46 Willys CJ2A has a start button although i added a KEY to the circuit to keep it from walking away.

RE: thoughts on our 2019 Rubicon

Been driving 55 years, never had a pushbutton break. push button start hasn't been around for 55-yrs. but i've had several electrict/electronics fail...radio, power windows, rear window defroster. not against new stuff, ideas. just think there needs to be a plan b. wife's liberty has remote lock/unlock but one door still has and 'old fashioned' door lock. oughta be all doors but one is better than none.

RE: thoughts on our 2019 Rubicon

What's your plan B if the mechanical key breaks? Or if the chip in the mechanical key breaks? A key fob is no different technology than a chipped key; it just doesn't have the mechanical pins and tumblers or equivalent mechanical doodads to get crudded up, break down, wear out, etc. Instead, you have a much more mechanically robust (or at least potentially more mechanically robust) pushbutton. The chances of it breaking down are lower than a mechanical key. On most if not all systems, if the battery in the key fob dies, you can still use it to start the vehicle through passively powered RFID technology; it just needs to be placed in a specific spot in the vehicle for the communication to work (rather than being anywhere in your pocket or whatever). If the vehicle battery dies, of course, you aren't starting your engine without help no matter what the key setup looks like. been driving for nearly 55-yrs. never had a key break. never. if the chip goes bad a call to the wife results in a key. not a call to a tow and a $100+ tow bill.

RE: thoughts on our 2019 Rubicon

Never seen a rubicon that was not trail rated. I believe all 2019s are push button and a new trans. My push button start the fob has a key that can be used to start. What color did you get Tom? Hella Yella I don't know if the push button start was an option or not, I don't believe it was. too bad. i like having an actual key. I didn't like it much to start, but it is really functional, just carry the module, and push the button. You can still lock the jeep just like always, ,module has three buttons, lock, unlock, and find me alarm. Plus a door key when / if the battery is dead. ok but what’s Plan B when the fob fails?+ Some of us need to come into the year 2019. Keyless ignition is here to stay. THe push button is just an ignition switch that does not require a key. The fob must sync electrically with the car to allow the car to start. No different than pressing a remote button to unlock the doors. Thieves have been breaking ignition switches with screwdrivers for years. The keyless is using electronics to secure the car vs. a mechanical lock. The electronics are now harder to defeat vs. the screwdriver. Keep up with the advancements or you will be left behind. 3 in a tree was a great way to manually shift a car once upon a time, Cars continue to advance and improve. sounds like plan b in the event of a push button start failure is to call a tow truck. well, used cars are always an option.

RE: thoughts on our 2019 Rubicon

was the push button std or an option? and if the push button fails is there a way to start the vehicle with a key? still trail rated? as for towing i expect the tranny to be in park (auto) or 1st (manual) in addition to the transfer case in neutral.

RE: Campground Breakers - EDITED

we had a similar situation a few years back at a KOA in ohio. long story short the CG worker replaced the breaker and service returned to normal. nothing lasts forever.

RE: Dolly towing

the remco page only has info on 1996 and newer vehicles. if i were him i would.. - check the owner's manual - call Jeep...not a dealer but the mfg - contact Remco by phone. i wouldn't gamble. without a direct answer i would not proceed.

RE: Want to use a tow bar to pull a titan xd

All models of the 2018 Titan XD must be trailered according to Remco. and that will add weight. know, do not assume, what your MH is capable of safely towing.
