  1. X-2, but we were in our RV. I think that Ruby's is the only facility close that has RV sites and rooms in their lodge.
  2. Good to have exact information. Now the owners vehicle insurance needs to be checked to see if there is towing included.
  3. You both are probably correct. I know the RV has to be "towable". Check you insurance. Surely there is a towing coverage. May not be as much as you would like, but could offset some of the expense.
  4. Do you have optional Roadside Assistance purchased. If so, yes; if not no. It isn’t included in your membership.
  5. There are two methods. One is to have a 20amp breaker in the motor home feeding a #12 or #10 wire to the +12 pin on the rear receptacle. Also, a 20 amp breaker in the towed vehicle connected to battery and the +12 pin on the towed. Suggest you use the big 7 pin connectors on the motor home and the towed. Via Amazon you can purchase a 7 pin to 7 pin cable to connect together. That cable has larger conductors than the small round towed connection normally used. We found that the small connection would collect sand and water which would short the +12 pin to the brake or tail lights and would not clear until the water dries out which takes 24-36 hours. The other method is similarly wired, but a charge controller is added to the circuit. I don’t remember the manufacturer or part number, but if you call Dan’s Service Center in Elkhart, Indiana, they can tell you or supply one to you. Dan’s is recognized as being one of the best installers. He recommends using a charge controller vs using just a wired charge line to add safety to both vehicles. PS: Most newer auto manufacturers (GM is one) state to not wire into the existing tail and brake lights due to feedback into towed’s system. I used an Led kit from Roadmaster on our 3 Equinox toweds.
  6. Not sure this will work, but I copied it from a Google search. To login and make administrative settings to your Moxee Hotspot, you must be connected via Wi-Fi to your Moxee Hotspot. At least it is worth a try. Open your browser and navigate to ... The default username: admin and the password: 12$XXX where XXX is the last three of the Moxee Hotspot IMEI (found on the label in the battery compartment)
  7. I would look for a miss wired cables on the batteries or one of the positive cables is grounded via cut in the wire insulation.
  8. Since you have blocked your location in your profile, I can not tell where to get your inverter repaired. But you call Xantrex and get a Return Material Authorization number RMA. If you are near the state of Washington, I am told there is a location to ship it to or drop off. If near Elkhart, Indiana there is a location there, also. But absolutely no walk in or shipped to without the RMA number.
  9. Yes, custom glass solutions. Rvglassparts.com. They will give you free one year of FMCA membership.
  10. You should not have any trouble. Suggest you visit north rim while you are north. Great views through giant windows of the lodge dining room. Not as many people or crowds to deal with, but the south rim has an excellent trading post of Native American Indian art at fair prices, not cheap though. we camped in 38 ft motor home near page and drove auto to the north rim. North rim campground was full and unless they have been enlarge the sites, sites were smaller than you will need.
  11. No. I replaced ours after 10 years with original frim FREIGHTLINER. Even found them on sale. You do need to return old batteries to them to get back core charge.
  12. I have towed a 2016, 2019 and 2022 Equinoxs all with automatic transmission. Just be sure to add a charge line to keep battery charged while towing.
  13. Went that route one year and had seven inches of snow in El Paso. You just need to keep weather apps on your phone and check for conditions ahead. You may have to layover a day somewhere along the route. Just stay safe.
  14. I have had two sets of Goodyear tires, but they were on motor homes. Both sets started cupping on the outside edge at 40,000 mikes. I have switch to Bridgestone, Michelin and Firestone without any problems. I think Continentals would be a good solution.
  15. Don’t have enough information about the make and model of your water heater, but check to see if 120 volts between the terminals on the heating element. If the voltage is there, then the element is bad and needs to be replaced.
  16. I have not experienced any problems with three different generators: gasoline, LP and diesel. But I use the extension infrequently.
  17. There have been documented cases where the RVers forgot to close their vent which allowed CO to enter RV from the tall stacks. If you would like to try an extension to direct the exhaust to the ground and away from RV, go to any muffler shop. They can make an extension to fit your generator exhaust pipe. I had one made in two 6 foot pieces, so I could place in storage bin on generator side. One slipped over the exhaust pipe and the second slipped over the end of first pipe. Only about 6 inches of the ends are slip fit. Make sure they don’t make the fit too tight or you may not get them apart. I used two bricks to lift the end, so anything on ground would not catch fire.
  18. Your ac should not be drawing in air from the outside, but maybe some do. The vents can bring in outside air. I have boondocked at 90°. I lower the temp for about an hour before bedtime, then turn off. It does get warmer during the night, but not uncomfortable. May not work for every RV depending on insulation and double pane windows.
  19. If you are a member, the information is in issues of Family RVing. If not, call FMCA and ask for the Convention department. Possibly they can email you a list because the information has been prepared to be printed in the book given to attendees. Suggest you not go on Wednesday the 24th. The displays are only open 1/2 day. Thursday is very crowded. I found that Friday and Saturday are the easiest days to be able to see all.
  20. I agree. Suggest you close this thread, and start a new one. Close it in at most 4 months and start over. A person that is new doesn’t want to go through 75 pages. They might look through 3 or 4 months of posts.
  21. PS: If anyone wants to see our listing, go to RVWHEELATOR.com. Select you want to Buy. Scroll down to our listing. There are 38 pictures.
  22. Wish downsize would work for us. My wife is using a walker full time. Getting in and out of motor home is very hard for her. Getting hard for me, too. So many trips in and out to load the items for trip was hard on my leg and knees. It is right time for us to sell.
  23. I have checked consignment sites near us. They will not take any motor home older than 10 years. I have listed with RV WHEELATOR. 5% commission. Their site is linked to more than 100 other sites. They are an FMCA commercial member. Is this a good decision? Only time will tell.
  24. Outdoor carpet adhesive works very well. If you think about it, the carpet adhesive stays flexible below freezing and above 100. Ours has been installed for about 8-10 years without any problems.
  25. Enjoy the Blue Gate and das Essenhaus restaurants.
