Nice! I was curious about venting on hot days?

RE: Roadmaster tow bar question

What towbar do you have? Do you really need to replace the arms? If so consider a new tow bar for your setup. You may/may not find a power cord that is plug and play as you may need wiring modifications to match. ie 1 bulb/filament for turn brake vs 2 and charge line, etc. Recommend 6 wire cord, 4 for lights and 1 charge line, ground and charge wires are larger gauge. You might need something else depending upon the toad aux brake.

RE: Towing a Honda CRV one time - NC to Maine

There is no such thing as being cited for "violation of accepted towing practices". You can be cited for a legal infraction. However, being under GCWR accompanied with the fact there is no law in NC that requires a car being towed to have supplemental brakes means there is no legal issue here and thus no violation.You have to meet the rules of each state as there is no reprocrity other than a drivers license. If any state requires brakes and you don't - well I wouldn't want to be in that situation.

Maybe post a thread asking others.." ever rent out your trailer" that would be amusing. Plenty of archive posts.

RE: Towing a Honda CRV one time - NC to Maine

2018 CRV is not listed as towable including dolly. Have you considered liability if you were involved in a serious accident and in voilation of accepted towing practices? And that can include "not your fault". Don't think for a second that any towing violation won't be determined with a serious accident and claims can exceed insurance coverage. Drive it up, fly/train back and take the family up seems best from your post. Or shipping costs which would be offset by gas, food, motel etc.

RE: Honda generator to truck camper

I just looked at a ONAN 3.2KW diesel get set here at the Tampa RV show. 30.2 x 17.3 wide x 18 inches tallNice gen, definitely not portable.

you just bought a new TT and are planning on renting it out? a bad idea bumpyX2 Non commercial rentals are marginal at best. IMHO Install a TV antenna and TV cable connection.

RE: Class C without a house battery bank???

He likely doesn't know what a house battery is used for. I'd be cautious, find the batteries or their location and be very sure everything works as it should. What is the source of 12V house power w/o 120VAC? The batteries require water so likely not in good shape.

RE: Then what?

Reisender, Thanks for your information. I'm still in the thought process of EVs - Oh there is another car that says 2 motors?... EVs are certainly a future consideration for us. From what I've read battery mining and disposal are a major world wide environmental impact yet to be solved. And the US electrical grid today is inadequate for a major EV change.

RE: Then what?

By the way, who is still using a 110 VAC drill?My small bench top drill press is 120V. As is my hedge trimmer which I'm now tripping over it's cord laying on the floor - going to use it any day now...

RE: CB radios - Do you use one?

Yes, Not nearly as much usage these days. Might be useful for a traffic situation or caravan, etc.

RE: Then what?

My thought is that the goalposts will simply be moved.X2 EVs will increase and are great for shorter travel and that distance will increase along with reduced charging time. Our society is totally dependent on ICEs for so much like airplanes, trucks, trains, etc for transportation of people and goods. How/when will reasonable alternatives evolve? There is no viable short term alternative but that could change in the future.

RE: Lasalle Bristol dump valves jammed closed

Have him buy new valves which should answer the questions.

RE: Extend-a-Stay clogging tanks?

It could be the hose, kinked, defective or the end doesn't open the tank valve assuming it's tight. Oil in the line is also possible.

RE: cell phone

Years ago driving I paid $15/mth for Verizon access in Canada, towers were limited. You may/may not have access in the Canadian ports. Actually the same for US ports depending upon your provider so check with them. Suggest you just enjoy the cruise and leave the phone in the suitcase. Arrange for emergency communication if that is your need. We passed many bus loads of happy cruisers headed to the cruise line resorts without a clue as to what they were missing. Or perhaps they wondered why we missed so much?...
