  1. I recently purchased a 2022 Maverick Hybrid. Blu OX now makes the base plate. They say it's towable. Ford says it's towable but you have to follow a specific procedure. Mine will be outfitted 12 October and then I will know
  2. I had the same problem with a diamond shield bra on my 2007 Fleetwood Providence. In my research I found that 3M Specialty Adhesive Remover Aerosol #38987, I used 8 cans, was recommended and also some plastic razor blades and handle all available from amazon. It is time consuming and a lot of elbow grease but the paint isn't scratched and I just keep a of wax on the front of the coach.
  3. I have a 2011 Honda Crv and I installed a TOAD-CHARGE System. Simple hookup and is has a diode in the system with indicator lights to tell you it is connected properly, charging, reverse polarity. Haven't had a dead battery yet. 4 years so far.
  4. My experience with Samson tires: Ill try to make it short. DO NOT BUy CHEAP TIRES. I bought 6 275R70 22.5 and after 4 or 5 trips back and forth to the dealer I finally went to a truck stop to have the tires spin balanced and they couldn't balance them because they were out of round. ( the dealer had already replaced 2 because they were out of round) one trip back at a time. The 75 Truck Stop on Rt44 and 75 in Wildwood Florida dismounted them cleaned them out because of the bags of beads used to balance them,remounted them and trued them up then they could balance them. The total cost was $710.60. Within 1/4 of a mile the ride had extremely noticeable difference and back to the way my coach used to ride. I am now waiting some kind of refund from the dealer after notifying the general manger, Good Sam's Product Division and Camping World.
  5. I have a 2007 Fleetwood Providence and I also need to do something with the carpet and have been thinking of a laminate floor or something other than carpet. Please keep me posted.
  6. I have a 2007 Providence and the Frieghtliner dealer replaced the harnesses for about $500.00
  7. I also tried Gieco and was upfront about being involved in and accident," that was not my fault", and it happened in Mya of 2012 and everything was going well. The quote I received over the phone was less than I was paying and almost ready to close the deal when the representative said " Oh by the way if you want to have us as an insurance company, we will insure your RV but because of the accident we have to double your rate." I was shocked because the accident was not my fault. But the rep said "that's the way it is". Needless to say I didn't go with Gieco. I am now with Nat'l General and very happy with the rate.
  8. I have a 2007 Fleetwood Providence 39L with side directional light and they have helped out quite a few times as a lot of people out there like to hang out in the middle of the coach but the lights get their attention. I am going to change them to led though. Thanks for the info
  9. Homosassa, Florida mid to lowwwwww 20's tonight!
  10. With a car like that I would trailer it. It would be safer and probably less invasive to the car and easier on the pocket book.
  11. I use a "toad charge" system to keep my toad battery charged. Fairly easy install if you are mechanically inclined.
  12. We tow a 2011 Honda CR V with 4 wheels down. Just be sure whatever you tow, read the owners manual. When driving it averages between 26 n 30 mpg.
  13. I agree with Poppo. I avoid the 95 corridor like the plague. Just, Nov 1st returned from Kittery Maine and did 84 and 81 and 77. A beautiful ride and plenty of places to stay. Have a safe trip Enjoy the scenery Fank
  14. While on a recent trip to New England and searching for a place to stay on the FMCA Connection sponsored campgrounds site I ran across an RV Park in Barrington New Hampshire that offers a one hundred percent, YES that is 100% discount to FMCA Members they do however accept donations and they are open year round and are pet friendly. I wrote an email to FMCA asking if that was true or a typo because most other campgrounds off 10% ten percent. I received an email back stating that the 100%discount was correct. It's called TOWNSEND Systems Camping Park, 119 Hall Road, Barrington, NH 03825-3209 and I guess it's is part of a network. We did not stay there as I discovered it on my way home to Florida. I have not searched the rest of the states. I thought that this would be good general information for anyone traveling in atleast the north east. Frank
  15. I have something like that happen everytime I get in a hurry. I just turn off everything, wait about 5 minutes then start from scratch. When the low voltage light comes on I start the engine and then proceed. it's like it gets confused when I push too many buttons. Just be patient. Frank
