RE: Fridge/Propane

to clear air in the line light the burners on your stove and let them burn for 30-60 seconds.

rk911 wrote: "all speculation until the OP tells us which Jeep he has." Of course you are right. But tell me this - what Jeeps besides the Wrangler have hooks on the bumper? good point but not all wranglers can be flat towed...most but not all. in all likelihood a '16 can but since the op bought it used there is no way tell how the original owner had ir built. assuming facts not yet in evidence could lead to a bad outcome. the point is the OP bought a jeep assuming it could be flat towed which in itself is a bad idea. my initial advice was to post his model for us to chime in on and to check his owner's manual under rec. towing for specific instructions. but apart from his initial post he has been silent so all of us are merely speculating.

RE: Another roadside assistance question

- amateur radio. requires a license but with the right radio/antenna you can talk with other hams around the country or around the world. of course someone has to be listening. - rent/buy a sat phone - or as Blanche DuBois said..."...i have always depended on the kindness of strangers."

RE: Celebrating our 50th anniversary...

congratulations on 50-yrs! we hit the half-century mark last March 14 at our winter quarters in Mesa. to celebrate we had planned either a train trip thru the Canadian Rockies, an escorted tour to various WWII sites including the Normandy beaches on June 6 or flying to London to see our Cubs beat up on the evil St. Louis Cardinals. all of which have been canceled. but that's ok. we're happy to be with each other.

RE: The worst Post Office in the USA... your vote

If you consider that I regularly receive other's mail & I don't get mine, we have a carrier that randomly decides to not deliver for petty reasons then I guess they are doing a good job. All I can say is I am glad they don't have to do anything critical like deliver important documents..Oh, wait..yeah..But there's always Fed Ex, problem solved. Newman!

RE: Pet Peeves long road trip

40' class A pulling a 4-dr Jeep SUV so we're about the same length as the OP.. #1 - completely agree. merging into traffic must not be taught. more and more we're seeing merging cars suddenly stop...dead the bottom of the ramp. in urban areas where there are 3-lanes more often as not you'll find us in the middle lane keeping up with traffic. #2 - i tend to move over into the passing lane to let traffic pass. i've noticed that many vehicles aren't ready to pass after i move over. i don't wait till the last minute to pull back left into the traffic lane, when i see the 1/2-mile warning sign i make my move..,earlier if there's a vehicle hanging back. #3 - i usually drive 65 or the speed limit, whichever is iess and when less than 65 usually 3-5 mph over. but when i move left to pass...really rare it seems...i speed up. get over, pass, get back. sorry, but to remain at the posted speed in the passing lane when other traffic is in that lane behind you is just asking for trouble. i don't deny that i've been caught in the left lane. bad judgement on my part. that's rare but when it happens i get right ASAP.

RE: The worst Post Office in the USA... your vote

the USPS handles in excess of 160-billion pieces of mail each year. do individual pieces get mis-delivered? sure. it's happened to a lot of us. it"s happened to me. hut considering the enormous volume of mail i think their record is pretty darn good.
rk911 07/11/20 06:50pm Around the Campfire

What model is the Jeep - a Cherokee will require a wiring harness - yes a brake buddy does drain the battery - need a charge line and the OP...which model of Jeep? not every model can be flat towed.

RE: My last Home Depot purchase...

about 7-yrs ago we were “slammed” by an unethical comcast agent. he signed us up for an upgrade we never ordered. the only way i found out was an e-mail informing us of the upgrade and that my new equipment would ve shipped. it took a few calls and transfers that morning but i finally reached the right “suit” and told him the story. i also informed him that i was refusing the delivery and that he had better stop it from being shipped because if it arrived i would leave it outside. we received a credit on the account and the equipment never showed up. post a large sign where your packages are dropped informing the driver that you are refusing delivery and take a photo of that sign in place. good luck

which model jeep? not all models can be flat towed. check the "recreational towing" section in your owner's manual. you should find complete instructions there. let us know.

RE: Leaving tow bar connected to MH

How many of you leave the tow bar on the motor home after you return from an outing? What are the possible cons? the towbar goes on before we leave for AZ in January and stays on till we put the MH away in November. been doing that since we began towing in 2003. no problems.

RE: I90 fuel islands in Massachusetts

look for a Flying J along your route. They usually have two long RV fuel lanes. we're 55'+ and use them all the time.

RE: Generator Problem

how much fuel was in your tank? some genny’s will auto stop if the available fuel falls below a pre-set level.

RE: MLB without spitting, sunflower seeds, etc......?

But but if they kneel, it won't matter, I won't watch MLB. Lol YES, been an avid baseball fan since Johnny Bench but a fast paced 60 game season, the best team may not win. buckle up, my friend cuz it's a sure thing. it's gonna happen. sports writer in today's paper predicting the national anthem will disappear from all sports. no anthem, no kneeling. last i recall an employer can set working conditions for employees.'re benched. yah, i know. never gonna happen. i can dream.

RE: MLB without spitting, sunflower seeds, etc......?

the real crimes are the DH in the national league and starting extra inning games with a runner on 2nd. Boy, that's for sure ... Maybe just get ahold of a video game, and each pick a player. Stay home and play the game, declare a winner. Seriously, I'm a die-hard MLB fan, and hope they work things out so we can enjoy some games ... DH doesn't bother me quite as much as the EI 2B runner. and add to that the silly and unnecessary computer calling balls and strikes. might as well do away with the umps altogether and just put sensors in/on uniforms, csps, shoes, gloves, balls, bases, foul lines, outfield walls, etc. and be done with it.
