RE: Would you back a camper for someone?

I’d don’t offer to back someone else’s rig. I’ll offer to help guide them in but that’s as far as I go. I’ve never been able to back up boats, trailers, etc. that’s why I have a MH and a flat tow vehicle.

RE: Cost to repair or replace half a windshield?

well I see we have a $2000 deductible so it'll likely be coming out of my lunch money You sure that deductible applies to Comp/glass? Many states have zero deductible for glass claims under Comp. We had to have our one piece windshield replaced and the company (Binswanger) came to our house, measured, ordered, installed at our house. The glass came from the same company the factory’s did.

RE: Better ride when not towing?

Are you 12? What does this question relate to? MTBOB joined yesterday. I’ve read two of his posts and each one seems to be demeaning to the OP.

RE: Norcold Fridge on Propane Question

What happens with the burner turned down to a lower setting during the day? Does the temp inside the fridge get too high? Is there anyway to better insulate the fridge?

RE: Too old to drive ?

As far as being a sole personal opinion, if you are concerned about your abilities then perhaps you can still do so. Just keep in mind there a many people who do not know they are past the point of making that decision due to dementia.

RE: Resuming Rving... ideas dealing with Covid.

Been camping for close to nine months here, playing golf the entire time of the Covid thing albeit with restrictions. Like many many small businesses have pointed out they are shuttered but “essential” businesses like liquor stores and pot shops can be open. Many of the CGs we’ve been to have gone to touch less checkin, and keep things cleaner (which they should have been doing), closed group areas and activities. Use a mask, wash your hands, keep hands off your face, don’t get in anyone else’s face and go enjoy the great out of doors.

RE: Paperwork

License and reg about all you need for vehicle. May want proof you own RV. Pet vaccination records.

RE: Ford Roadside Assistance

Who responds to a service call depends greatly on where you are when you need help. In many cases there may only be one or two tow companies in the area and they will have contracts with multiple RSS policy companies.

RE: Ford Roadside Assistance

I have not used it but my thoughts are that it’s free for 5 years (it was in my case - Class A). Mine turns 5 in late March and have included RSS coverage on my RV policy with Progressive which I did had to use on a previous unit. My answer is no.

RE: Potentially dangerous mistake in March RV Magazine

Hah... I was at Huntington Beach State Park here in SC about a year ago, and the couple was unhooking a vintage TT and were having issues getting the younger off the ball. Well, they finally did it, and low an behold the site was not exactly level and it started to roll backwards. So yes, chock first... (And no harm was done due to some quick thinking) On edit, did you attempt to report the error?

RE: Deleting Book from Cloud

If she’s reading the book with Kindle or Nook I’m fairly sure books stay on their servers and not in her ICloud account. On edit: Only the books she has downloaded to her device are stored on the device. As I recall IOS backup does not backup the apps you have on the device, but it does tracks what apps you have and will download them again from the App Store when required. I have both Kindle and Nook, and neither app stores data on my iCloud account.

RE: Child safety seats

Obviously a front facing seat would be best, but not usually available. There should be a few more belted seat positions in a sofa or dinette. Strap the seats in and perhaps add some pillows to keep them from moving side to side.

RE: The Horrible RV Magazine

The only reason a company sends you a magazine for next to nothing is to get you to buy something from them. I never read most of the stories in the old magazine(s) except for the ones that help you fix something. Now it’s just sales rag and thus it doesn’t get more than a quick look and then into the recycle bin. Heck if CW wont spend the dime to upgrade the software on this chat room, why would you think they are going to improve a dying magazine business?

RE: How Important is Garage Storage?

Well there you have it. Opinions for keeping the TT in a garage and those that basically said do nothing but camp in it. To me it’s important for my MH, Toad to look nice, well maintained. I had several, some I’ve had to store outside, stored off site under a shed, and currently store under a carport next to my house. So far the carport has been a blessing, a garage would be better. Keeps critters at bay, both four legged and winged one too. Helps keep the roof cleaner, reduce black streaks, less UV damage to the external items. Your choice, choose wisely..

RE: DirecTV Spinoff Announcement

That’s one heck of a tax write off.

RE: Internet speed

And does it not require additional bits to be added to the data for communications purpose? And don’t forget the terms half byte and nibble.

RE: Chevrolet exits all ICE production by 2035

I wonder how earthmovers, or other very large construction machines will be adapted to work on battery, how many hours will the operate and just as important how long will it take to recharge them, especially out in the middle of Nebraska. EVs are the future for personal transportation, but the need for ICE’s is here for a long time.

RE: Running a generator to exercise it when there's shore power?

Yes you should exercise the gen from time to time to lube parts, eliminate moisture, remove any rust. Some may say they never do. As far as while shore paper is available, it may be best, but not a must perhaps to switch the shore power off before starting the gen. May prevent issues with the transfer switch.

RE: Jeep towing questions.

My comments are based on my experience with a 2015 Jeep Wrangler 2dr with automatic transmission. You do not need a charge line to the Jeep, you will need to install wiring for tail, brake, signal lights. You do not need to leave the key in the ignition so after setup put key in pocket. At least on my year model you not need to pull any fuses. You do not have to disconnect the battery. One of the easiest to setup and use, cost effective tow solutions is the Ready Brute Elite package. Give them a call and they can inform you of exactly what you will need. Simply hook up the tow equipment, put transfer case in neutral, transmission in Park, remove key and go.
