  1. hi guys, we made the air pressure changes and have put a few miles on. it definitely helped, but need to go to the next level. experiencing a great deal of driver fatigue fighting the cross winds and road in general. looking at Sumo springs, track bars and shocks. there are allot of options. could use any input.

  2. OK guys, you may have to back track a little for a rookie like me. Where do I get the weight checked?

    How do I use that info to determine tire pressure? The tires themselves say cold max of 90. The GVWR 22000.

    No 2 ways about it, we are ALL over the road in  descent cross wind, it really doesn't take very much.

    Just going down the road its a very rough and bumpy ride-- like sitting in a empty flat bed pick up.

  3. We just started towing a toad (2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited) this year. We haven't yet started using a brake system, but I can tell we could really use one. I am considering all systems, but like the idea of the Roadmaster InvisiBrake, because I don't want to put in and take it out all the time. was wondering a few things:

    1, Is it difficult to install myself?

    2. If I understand it correctly this system is not proportional. isn't that a bad thing?

    3. Is there anything else (pro or con) I should know, (i.e., is there anything else I need to buy besides the brake system itself).

  4. We are looking to buy a toad. We have had our gas class A for almost a year and rented cars last year, it worked, but was very troublesome.

    Because our tow capacity isn't that of a pusher I am concerned that our car or choice (we are looking at Wranglers) would be too much for what we can do.

    So, I guess I have 2 questions, the first has anybody flat towed a wrangler or wrangler unlimited behind a v10 class A?

    The second, any leads on where to look to buy a jeep already set up to tow?

  5. We have a 2011 Daybreak.

    Depending on which way the cross wind is blowing either the pilot or co-pilot sliding windows will produce a fair amount of noise. they can actually move/vibrate enough that Ii have rattled the lock loose from the outside just by placing my hand on the window and shaking it. the noise is annoying, but the ability to bypass the window lock so easily is scary. Don't have a great deal of confidence in the dealer to fix the problem. Aany idea on fixes or adjustments?



  6. Last trip to the east coast I used my smart phone (Galaxy S3) as a WiFi hot spot so my wife could work as Ii drove. Also used the FMCA mobile AP to look up campgrounds. This last week I was forced to upgrade to a S4, and I can't get the FMCA to load correctly, I keep getting funky error messages.

    If anybody knows the fix for that I would love to hear it! Long story short I also have the Coach Net AP on my phone, and its super easy, it automatically knows our position and can call for the specific kind of help we need at the touch of a button. Was able to find more local amenities with the smart phone than I was with our new Garmin RV GPS., In fact my GPS is linked to my smart phone via blue tooth so I can watch the weather radar as we roll and get local traffic updates. Having traveled without and now with, I would hate to give it up.

  7. We would like to cover our stairwell. The entry is the mid-coach type class A, as you walk through the door, the euro recliner is on the right and the kitchen sink cabinet is on the left, just up from floor level as you walk in on the back side of the sink cabinet is all the light and convenience switches. We would love to hear what others have done! Kind of the big deal as we are hoping to travel with the grandbaby.

  8. We ended up stopping on the way back at the RV Museum, it was GREAT! Would go back again!

    We also stopped at a Chicago Suburb for our favorite Chicago style pizza, Giordono's was only miles off I 80.

    Long story short the way back was a lot of fun. Unfortunately the way there was not so much-- we drove it straight through over night and through the biggest rain storm I have ever seen. We drove almost 900 miles of rain, 1/2 hour in the windshield wipers broke. I finally fixed them at a truck stop in PA, but it was a long way with no wipers! Found out i cannot sleep at rest areas. Tried to get a couple hours of shut eye, no dice.
