  1. Sorry I'm late to this party, but I am one of those that used the FMCAssist. My late wife was diagnosed with liver cancer in early January 2022. We were in the Las Vegas area and wanted her to get back to our home area so she could at least see our three kids. Long story short, it was a BED TO BED transfer by the air ambulance crew. They came right to her room in Vegas, had a waiting ground ambulance to go to the airport, a ground ambulance to go from the Duluth MN airport to the next hospital, and right to her room. The crew were some of the most professional you could ever want. I NEVER saw any kind of a bill from them! The only problem I had was trying to coordinate through the hospital (that's a whole 'nother story). Once I started coordinating with them myself everything went quite smooth Tom
  2. The first thing to look at is how level the trailer is when hooked up. Then the next thing is to see how much clearance you have between the truck bed and trailer. If you have 5 inches clearance you shouldn't have much problem, but more is better.
  3. I may not be correct, but that sounds a lot like a groung problem. Look around the ECM for a bunch of wires going to ground and try cleaning the connection(s).

    Stair vent.

    I would not recommend you cover the vent in your stairs. That would be the return air for your furnace.
  5. Herman, that is strange. I called the number on the back of the ID card and GMMI was who answered. They even asked for my FMCA number. No, I have not seen any bill from them. It wasn't fun to get things arranged and then the hospital she was in tried to take credit for arranging everything. My word of advice is to not get sick in the Las Vegas area.......
  6. No, my wife passed away on May 24th from the cancer. GMMI is the insurance company that answers the number that is given for the plan. No, I didn't contact Chubbs. I have no idea who that is.
  7. I want to give my take on the FMCA Assist benefit and see if this is/was correct. Back in January my wife was diagnosed with liver cancer. Long story short, in April she is in a hospital in Las Vegas and going down hill rather quickly. I wanted to get her back to Duluth, MN so she would be near our kids and in familiar territory, so I called GMMI. First thing I was told was "Sure we can transport her". Next was "Well, now we need this paper (or something to that effect), then it was a go. No, now this other paper is needed so I supplied that. Next was "we'll give you an update withing two hours". 48 hours later I called (again) and was told some other paper was needed. After almost three full weeks my wife was finally flown home and due to our pets we decided I should bring the truck and trailer home. It was so frustrating that I even called the air ambulance company just for reassurance. I even got a phone call from the CEO of the air ambulance company about the headaches and hassle of trying to arrange the flight. They would NOT tranport for treatment, would NOT transport for possible life saving surgery, and would only tranport for palliative care or hospice care. I questioned why there would not be transport for care, surgery, etc. but they will tranport for a patient to die and was told "Well, it's policy". I will say, the air crew was the most proffesional and polite crew you could ever ask for. Tom

    Mixing tire brands

    The tag really doesn't care what brand is on it. It's not like the steer that can cause safety issues with handling, not like a drive axle where you have one tire having slightly larger diameter or different diameters on each side. Both wheels on the tag freewheel and are not connected to each other or any other tire/wheel combination.
  9. Wife and I are going to go out whale watching in Puget Sound on Tuesday the 21st. Not cheap, but it sure sounds like fun!
  10. Could you do it yourself? That's what I would do.
  11. Maybe it's just me, but that looks to be a solution in search of a problem. What I would recommend is that you find a large parking lot (like a mall lot) and practice backing into spots. Then practice some more and practice more and.........well, you get the idea. I couldn't find any info as to the weight, but they can't be light. Then where would you store it for transport?
  12. https://www.campgroundreviews.com/regions/arizona/yuma This site shows 93 parks in the vicinity of Yuma. I would think you should be able to find something there. Tom
  13. No, my trailer has a shut off valve on the pump suction between the tank and the antifreeze line. To winterize with antifreeze you would shut the suction valve off and pull the plug on the antifreeze line.
  14. My fifth wheel does the same thing. I have a shut off valve in the pump suction line so that the pump will pull from a jug for winterizing. I just keep that valve shut off and open it when I want to use the water from the tank.
  15. Thanks, Ray. Looks like a nice place, but kinda rich for my blood........
