  1. The first step is to read the owners manual of the actual Jeep you plan to tow, it will have a section named "recreational towing": that is the only completely accurate information. The brand of tow-bar is immaterial, what is important is the maximum towing weight rating.
  2. Kay, that's far too technical for me, all I know my lights work when I throw the switch.
  3. Original MH florescent lights are 12V, and they are available for purchase; HOWEVER, the actual bulbs don't care about whether they are operating on 120VAC or 12VDC. I have 8 120VAC LED replacement bulbs from WalMart operating in my MH now. I've never seen 120VAC OEM lighting in an RV, it's all been 12VDC. Otherwise extended dry camping would be a pain in the keester. On a side note, many 120VAC televisions have a converter inside because it operates on 12V. I know of at least one person who has rewired a new TV to put in his RV to run on 12VDC by bypassing the built-in converter.
  4. Wildbilll that is a wild machine, sounds like it was rushed through the build instead of listening to the engineers. Supposed to be 86°F here at Ft. Myers Beach today. but a cold front is coming through Tuesday that will lower the temp to 73° for 3 days.
  5. However 12V is controlled by fuses or resettable breakers.
  6. Are you sure it's leaking internally, or is the equalizing cylinder faulty or out of time? HWH FAQ information states to avoid stopping midway and reverse directions, complete movement before reversing directions to prevent an out of time condition.
  7. Lippert bought a division of Atwood after Atwood bought Dometic, but they remain stand-alone companies. I suspect you can purchase oven glass cut to size from any large retail glass company.
  8. Storing on the leveling jacks is advised, this removes all the coach weight from the tires, leaving only the chassis weight on them. Tires should be inflated to sidewall imprinted air pressure and covered for long-term storage according to Michelin, Firestone and Goodyear, to name a few tire mfgrs. HWH jack shafts are made from SST, they do not rust. wildbill provided a link to proper care of jack shafts, Quote: "Make sure to use water or WD-40 to loosen any dirt before wiping the jack rod. If the jack rod has been greased or silicone sprays have been used on the jack rod, use WD-40 to loosen the grease or silicone and wipe the rod clean."
  9. Before you began spending money, did you check for voltage to the switches controlling the headlights, and running lights? Do the brake lights work? Is/was voltage present at the horn solenoid? Does it start and run normally? You will find documents pertaining to the P30 chassis here: http://www.barthmobile.com/eve/forums/a/frm/f/3731087061/p/1 Note, the documents are un-categorized, they are in "added by date" order.
  10. Not this year, the drive is closed for the season, reopen May 31, 2022. Contact Info Phone (802) 362-1114 Address 1A Saint Bruno Drive Arlington, VT 05250

    Diesel Club

    I noticed that, it was kinda like finding the old peg-leg gold mine for me, the website contains a wealth of information.
  12. I''m reading old topics on the FMCA diesel club websites and learning things I have read being discussed on recent forums these past 2-3 years. If anyone is interested it is here: https://forum.dieselrvclub.org/index.php?action=forum and also has a link to Yahoo forums from as far back as 2010.
  13. I have my dash camera at the bottom of the glass in front of me for easier access and it's closer to a cigar plug. It displays everything in front of me, from ~6' to 600' on flat ground.
  14. Why can't it be repaired inside? Liability concerns.
  15. GM futureliner, Bing Yes that's dual front tires. Driving One of GM’s Legendary 1939 Futurliners Is Like Nothing Else (msn.com)
