  1. I got 9 years out of my Interstate 225 AH batteries; I replaced them with the 210 AH Interstate batteries from Costco 2 years ago and all is good at this time. I 'll be happy if I get 1/2 the life as my first set. Jim
  2. Virginia City, MT is a ghost town with many original stores with merchandise looking like they just closed the business for the day. Even if it's not tourist season you can take a walk down main street.
  3. I frequently travel down I-5 and pass right by the Marathon factory. I can only dream of owing one of them when I hit the lottery. Jim
  4. Ray thanks for your response. Found bad connection in the plug that I had installed to allow me to remove the ICX transmitter when the towed vehicle was not being used as a toad. Jim
  5. I purchased a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee to replace my toad that was destroyed when I was rear ended. It had been used as a toad by the previous owner and was all set up with a Roadmaster Even Brake actuator. This would not have been my choice, but I thought I would give it a try. After thoroughly reading the owner manual and following the set up instruction step by step I have unable to get it to work. It will go thru the self diagnostic and the motor home monitor will indicate that tested OK and ready for use. When pressing the brakes the monitor will indicate "BRAKEING" for a few seconds then the monitor will display " NOT OPERATIONAL, MORE INFO" scrolling to the next page it will read "BRAKE PEDAL IS DEPRESSES" when checking position of the pedal it is NOT depressed. Scrolling to successive pages will offer probably causes which in include "IMPROPER INSTALLATION" and "READJUST SEAT TO PROPERLY SECURE UNIT" I have confirmed that wiring is correct bases on installation instructions and drawings. I have tried repositioning the seat with no success. I'm waiting for a response from previous owner . I'm open for suggestions for any tips you may have. Jim
  6. Our Samsung RF19 draws only 2 Amps at 120 volts, we only have 440 amp hr of battery capacity. When traveling the residential refrigerator is powered by our inverter charger. We have found that we get by if we run the generator every other day for a couple hours if we don't need to run the furnace at night.
  7. All good things come to a end. When my AAA RV Premier came up for renewal they now only offered $500 per tow per year and were limited to 2 tows per year. I don't think the towing company would answer the phone for that amount. I now have Good Sam, just hope that I won't have a need for a tow. Jim
  8. Also recommend that you get a TSD fuel card. There are significant saving to be had.
  9. Thanks for the lead on radiators. Jim
  10. While traveling on Hwy 84 in northern TX was rear ended while in turning lane. No injury in either vehicle, but my toad was totaled. The rig that hit me executed a perfect pit maneuver like you see on high speed chases on tv. Fortunately very little damage was done to our coach. The only damage to the rear cap was to the small lower center removable section that is removed to remove the radiator. The radiator and fan were damaged and will need to be replaced for us to get back on the road to return home to WA. Anyone have any leads for the radiator in the Lubbock are? If the both shop doesn't find it locally on Monday, they will be ordering the parts from Source Engineering in OR. What a way to end road trip, but are thankful that no one was hurt. Jim
  11. On my 04 Holiday Rambler Endeavor I replace the TROMBETTA solenoid that is in the battery compartment with a COLE HERSEE 48530 Smart Battery Isolator 200 AMP. The COLE HERSEE Smarti Isolator is a bi-directional device that will automatically tie the house and chassis battery banks together to ensure that either bank can be charges from either the battery charger or the chassis alternator. It also will automatically separate the 2 banks when both charging circuits are unavailable before the chassis batteries discharge to a low level that would be prevent starting the chassis engine, The COLE HERSEE solenoid installation require to changes to the existing wiring.. I made this change over 9 years ago and has worked great. I just replace replaced my 6V coach batteries (Interstate Golf cart Deep Cycle) after being in service over 7 years. I also have a residential refrigerator running off of my coach batteries. Jim
  12. 275 /70 /22.5 The ones I just took off were their A11 they have been replaces with A37 Jim
  13. I have been running HanKooks for 7 years, just replaced them with a new set because they had been in service for 7 years, During that period I have I driver over 50,000 miles without a single issue. I've' driven thru the desert in temperatures of 120 degrees and mountainous snow covered road and never was unhappy with their performance. The quality of the ride was equal or better than that of the Michelin's that they replaced and a **** of a lot cheaper. Jim
  14. Not sure why you are ruling out Hankook tires. There are many members that run then and are satisfied and have praised their performance. I just had my second set of Hankook's installed on my 04 Holiday Rambler Endeavor. The only reason for changing them was because they had been in service for seven years. During the seven year I traveled over 50,000 on all types of roads under conditions from crossing the desert in 120 degree weather to traveling mountainous snow covered roads without a single issue.
