  1. Or buy the V-6 Equinox that doesn't have the 12 V steering.
  2. I think it is a simple fix , leave the key on acc don't remove the fuse and add a charge line until GM decides to fix the problem 2 or 3 years down the road. I towed a 2010 4 cylinder Equinox with the oil drinking problem that GM finally admitted to the problem in I think 2014 or 15 but to late for me. I took the loss and unloaded on a dealer. I just could not sell it to a individual but didn't bother me to let another GM dealer have it.
  3. I can't find anything on the mirage 5 speed but have a look at the Kia Soul it is towable in the 6 speed standard and lots of 2016 6 speed for sale for a little over $11,000 and you can install a OEM cruse for about $70 . We love our 15 it is a quality car built in South Korea . Have a look at autotrader.com and sort by price lowest. walt
  4. M&G is cheap and easy to install and if you are a real cheap as I am they have used rebuilt units for half price at about $300. The M&G brake is just a cylender with a piston with a large O ring nothing to wear out but the O ring , as far as the installation you don't have to be a expert mechanic to do the installation. Best and simplest system I have ever had. walt

    AC Ducts

    The aluminum tape was used to seal off where the register hole was cut in the duct line and it's getting old and turning loose, some of your AC air will bypass the register and go in the ceiling if not resealed with new aluminum tape. Just pull the registers and retape . walt
  6. If you prefer to paper copy me the TSB you could mail it to me at:

  7. I guess I have a few more  question.?   Did you complete the install of the brackets and wiring yourself.?  Does such work require extensive experience?   Does Roadmaster or some other site give support information on how to do this install?  I'm a handy person...but automotive work is like plumbing...too many things can go wrong when skill level is too low.

  8. I so appreciate all the information you have been providing on the FMCA Forum.   But my quest for knowledge never ends.   Would you be able to forward me a copy of the TSB that supports the KIA towing.   You could send it to me at my email address:  gmzarnick@gmail.com

    Again...thanks so much for your time, good work and good insights/solutions to Kia problems/issues. 

  9. Yes call M&G direct and ask them about the remfg unit it's about half the price of new, the M&G is such a simple design that about the only thing that can give a problem is the O ring on the piston. There is a write up on IRV11 in the toad section with pictures that is a help if you want to do the installation your self, irs a fairly simple installation, one thing I would susgest regardless of who does the installation is to drive the toad a few miles without using the foot brake and check the temp of the rotors ( with a temp gun)to make sure the adjustments are not to tight.Walt I should have checked the last page on the job completion before posting.
  10. Be sure to mark or tag the lines before removing, don't ask how I know this. Walt
  11. Blake part # is Bendix 275491 , Midland KN18530 and CW to lower pressure CCW to raise. Walt
  12. I use 80 w90 and Lucas Hub oil 50/50 and can't see any reason to change the hub oil, my SILaw has 5 18 wheelers and they put a few 100,000 miles on them and never change the oil unless a problem. Walt
  13. Tom we were at the Frog rally also we had a bunch of Monaco coaches parked together, we had a super good time I would have liked more rally's in South LA , Love the Lafeyette area. Welcom Kent to the forum. ,
  14. I have made every Perry FMCA until 2013 and have always seen Roadmaster there checking tow bars free.
  15. Do a search there are threads on here on the procedure to use in cleaning a rear radiator coach and cleaning the CAC and radiator is very important on all coaches but a must on rear radiator. I would also check to make sure my crank case vent is venting behind the CAC and radiator. Walt
