  1. I've got the same issue. Can someone post a picture of inline check valve and where it should be installed?
  2. Airtabs

    I bought Airtabs for the reason you stated; for stability, not for fuel mileage gains. They did help to make my coach more stabile, but no increase in fuel mileage.
  3. Towing Fiat 500

    I tow a 2013 Fiat 500 POP. I just got the RVI2 system, it fits good as it comes with a clamp for the Fiat brake pedal much better and easier to use than the Brake buddy it replaced. I do have a question: I'm trying to mount a breakaway switch and can't find any room or area on the front of the car where it would fit. Anyone else have this issue? I'm using Roadmaster tow brackets and towbar. Thanks
  4. Uneven Tire Wear - What's the Cause?

    I want to get my 2006 Damon Daybreak alignment checked. Can anyone recommend a good shop in San Antonio? Thanks
  5. Hydralift Motorcycle Carrier

    I carried a 125 Yamaha Zuma for a few years on my then Class C. I bought the carrier at Harbor Freight, light weight but the scooters are pretty light. I now have a Class A that can handle a better carrier and a larger Bike (650 Suzuki S-40 aka Savage). this Combo weighs under 500lbs. But, I now tow a Fiat 500, don't have to worry about weather. I now also have a Kymco 125 scooter, it's also light had will haul me at 55mph and room for 2 people. I good little scooter and a lot less $$ than the Yamaha. Have fun.
  6. Kwikee Platinum Electric Step

    Carl, it seems to occur after some time on the road. I keep the steps well lubed, but I'm not sure if the sealed gears are to be lubed. A slight tap with a hammer on the gear box next to the motor seems to get them to work. Pete
  7. Kwikee Platinum Electric Step

    I seem to have a similar problem with the step. It stays in the up position and if I tap the gear assembly with a hammer ( not hard) it starts to work. Am I due for a new unit or are these repairable?
  8. Magnetic "Car in tow" signs are available on ebay.
  9. Using 15 Amp Service

    Thanks for all of your info. I'll leave the wiring to the pros and try to get by on regular 120v, 15 amp service.
  10. Using 15 Amp Service

    Thanks, that's what I thought, and a won't be doing it.
  11. Using 15 Amp Service

    Brett, I have 50 amp on the coach, but I would have to do something to be able to use a regular 220 outlet, wouldn't I?, Pete
  12. Using 15 Amp Service

    Rich, thanks for the info. The quote that we got for the 50 amp service said it was 10-12 ft way from the box. Since I haven't been to my nephew's new house, I'm not sure what is available. You can't plug into a 220v with a 50 amp plug, can you? Thanks, Pete
  13. Using 15 Amp Service

    I have a 2006 Damon Daybreak set up for 50 amp. I'll be staying at some relative's house for a couple of week and will only have regular 15 amp service available. I have the appropriate adaptors and heavy duty 10 ga 15 amp extension cords. When we had a small TT, we stayed at a state park with 15 amp and that's all that was available, only problem that I noticed was you really had to watch what you were using and no A/C. Do you think I will have any other problems doing this, other than no a/c? An electrician wanted $600 to put in a 50 amp outlet and we don't want to do that. Thanks
  14. FORD F53 V 10 LATER MODELS 2010-2014

    I have a 2006 Damon 32ft. I get between 7.5 and 8.5, but so far haven't towed anything, I have a small M/C on a rack that I use for transportation. As someone said, slowing down would increase the mpgs, but with this Ford V-10 and transmission, if you slow down under the 62-64mph, it downshifts out of O/D and would hurt your mpgs more than not help it.
  15. Herman, is the 1200lbs in Texas a new law? Here's what I found for TX towing: anything over 4500lbs require brakes.
