  1. Not sure if this is the right section but here it goes ... I lost my Manual Awning in 19 during a freakish storm. I need to replace it but i am having problems getting the dometic people on the phone. Any suggestions on where I can order the parts. I don't need the a shop cause I'm putting it on myself just the parts.
  2. Yes it has been a while. You guys have been really awesome and I can be transparent, The wife and I split and I’m now a single divorced man living in a 35‘ x 8 1/2‘ box! I’ve been full-time in since the separation but getting on things like the forums and even getting mail with both of our names on it and stuff like that really put me in a bad psychological space. Now that I’m past those emotions and I realize that I can still enjoy my camping life without a permanent life partner Makes it easier for me to do things so I’m back.
  3. I doesnt have any information at all. Not Sure Why but it doesnt ... Herman ... I did what you suggested and your correct, No lock while key in ignition, locks only when Key is removed. Will be tearing bumper off this weekend for base plate install and light set up.
  4. When I change my oil on Friday I will do that. Never crossed my mind to do that. i’m just hoping that I don’t have to leave my key in the on position and disconnect batteries and do all of that craziness. I never had to do that with my jeeps and I did not think I had to do that with this manual transmission car either. It’s almost as if the steering wheel does not lock until I actually pull that key out and it sounds like a locking, almost relay sound. I’ll let you know and post my results
  5. So, I decided to buy a newer car and I bought a 19 Kia Soul. I have a question for anyone who tows one As long as I dont remove the key from the ignition, the steering wheel doesnt "seem" to lock - Is that the typical experience with Hyundai/Kia vehicles? The Jeep i have to leave the key in the unlock 1st position - i just want to make sure I dont end up dragging the hamster box - Id much prefer it to roll.
  6. Yeah that’s a rumor for sure. They are doing well financially...
  7. Never been towed. The one time I had a problem, I pulled over and fixed it. Hopped back on the road.
  8. Ya know whats next to go ... GPS. Biggest waste of MONEY i ever did
  9. Im here ... when i took a sabbatical there was action on the forum ... awesome laughs and "interesting" conversation. I saw we strike up a scandal and blame it on JLeamont! HOWDY BILL hows it going
  10. Here is what i figure 1. We are young enough to climb under a coach 2. I think we keep enough tools on board to drop a tranny if needed 3. Most things that we would run into we could fix on the side of the road or at a campground - provided we got the toad with us and can get to a parts store 4. IF there was a problem that a tow truck is needed - The $300 it would cost to tow us to the nearest truck stop (That we will call and they be to us in 45 min) is well worth it not to be on the side of the road for 5 hours. If you have one tow every 5 years and you have GS, that's Hundreds of dollars wasted that went in to GS CEO's pocket. Id rather spend my money camping ...
  11. My situation is a little bit different, it is included in my premium and I cannot opt out at all. In that case it was just better for me all the way around to just drop good Sam. The interesting thing is I dropped it long before I knew it my insurance company will cover it so, to that effect I felt that good Sam was that much of a rip off.
  12. So ... camping world tried to tell me they could do it faster and I flat out told them ”I can install with the best of them and this installation done CORRECTLY is a 7 to 8 hour job for one person. 2 people could do it in 3 but there is no way y’all measure faster than someone who can measure” got the dumb look. Pound for pound I like this permanent mounted break as it’s as close to “proportional” as I could get less than a Grand
  13. Your right but what I am not doing is paying for it 2xs.
