  1. Merry Christmas to all from the Great White North!
  2. I do not get these warnings or have this issue. Would suggest you run a Malware scan asap. Sounds like you PC is infected. There are a few onetime scans you could use for free like Malwarebytes.
  3. "Driving with the propane tank on is illegal in some states and provinces?" Illegal in Canada? Not to my knowledge. Never heard of it being illegal in any state either. Our propane is always on when traveling. Except in tunnels that require it to be off.
  4. Seems to me that there's no debate here. All a matter of what you think your personal safety is worth. if lap belts were just as safe as the current shoulder/lap belt combination then we'd all have nothing more than lap belts in every car and MH still. if it were me, I would definitely go safety first over cost here.
  5. I would expect that much like any after market upgrades, you would have to register them with the insurance company and request additional coverage.
  6. Yes. Generally a high pressure soap and water wash and usually a good wash with the coach and toad clean. Dont get me wrong, when at home I wash my MH using and long handle brush like you. Blue Beacon is our choice when on the road.. And yes, I would very much like a "wash-bot" too!
  7. This is a very important point. We actually had this happen once and our fridge didn't run right for a few days following until it dried out. I have since fashioned a plastic shield that I place behind the lowet vent cover whenever we stop for a wash. We turn the fridge off as a precaution until I remove it after the wash. Has worked well
  8. Here is the link to Blue Beacon's website. They also have an app for Android and iPhone. https://bluebeacon.com/ They have something like 300+ locations. We have used them frequently to wash the MH and toad over the last dozen years or so,
  9. Try amazon. Search 12 volt splitter.
  10. As per Bill, I have only had this happen once over the past 15 years of Brake Buddy Classic use when I forgot to purge the hydraulic pressure before towing. Use the test button on the Brake Buddy to pump the brakes to do. 5 times should do it.
  11. Herman, you are soooooo right! Due to family obligations we're here until New Years and then heading to Florida later in January. Better late than never..
  12. Here in the Great White North, we've already had a taste of Winter! 3 inches of snow, just last week....
  13. Dkontz6234, Sorry to hear of your experience. I too had a need just over a month back to call on FMCA Roadside Assistance for help with a tire issue. My experience was the complete opposite of yours. On the initial call they promptly took my info, called me back about 20 minutes later saying the tire service provider was on their way. Within about 2 hours from my call the tire was fixed and I was back on my way. Prior to FMCA Roadside Assistance I had GoodSam. About 5 years back I had a tire issue just outside of Washington DC on a rush hour interstate. After waiting over 6 hours for assistance, a friend traveling with me was able to put on the spare. Don't think GS ever showed up. To me all Roadside Assistance providers are similar. Sometimes it works well, others, not so much. Still think that FMCA Roadside Assistance at $69/year is one of the best values out there.
  14. Have you tried velcro? I often use velcro to hold up pictures and such. It works very well and is easy to remove if need be. Should work on your panel. Just by the peel off adhesive backed velcro and stick to onexside to your panel and the other to the wall.
  15. We have never had a theft or problem like this while parked at any Travel Center or Wal-Mart. Whether just fueling or stopping overnight, sight seeing or to catch a meal. it's a shame, those Alcoa hubcaps and nut covers although not too expensive, are not that cheap just the same.
  16. Sounds like a voltage supply problem. When did you last service your house batteries?
  17. I enjoy recieving all the emails from FMCA. Sometimes it's something new, sometimes not. When it's something new, I am really glad they let me know. If it's an offer I've already taken advantage of, I simply just delete it. Not a BIG deal! Keep those emails coming.. Thanks!
  18. We often get ants while traveling in fact just spent time south of Atlanta last week where the sites were a mix of sandy gravel. Lots of ants! Invaded the MH in no time. We always us Hot Shot liquid ant bait stations. I just place them around the MH on the counters, floors, and within a day, most ants gone. Or dead. This product is inexpensive at less than $4 a box and readily available at any Walmart. We always carry 2 boxes with us, ready to exterminate pesky ants when needed!
  19. $68? Another reason to avoid it!
  20. Stopped by the Old Mill General Store yesterday. A little browsing, a little shopping, what a neat place. Will make a point of getting into the restaurant for dinner or lunch over the next few days. Menu sure looks good. Thanks for the tip. One thing about Pigein Forge and Gatlinburg, no shortage of restaurants to choose from!
