31  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Cleaning the screen door on: August 02, 2014, 01:54:33 pm
I found an easy way to clean the screen door.  I took a lint roller and just gently ran it up and down the screen.  Took me a few sheets to get it cleaned but I was really amazed at the amount of dirt that came off.  It really made a noticeable difference in the look of the screen and I did not have any fear that I was scratching or breaking the screen.

The bikes travel between the PC and the tow vehicle.  When we are ready for a side trip we move the bikes to the car.

This is how we carry and store our bikes

We drive through Atlanta a couple of times a year.  Most of this goes without saying but I'll say it anyway.  The traffic is never light but sometimes it is heavier than others. If you can, plan your trip to avoid weekdays during rush hour.  We always take the I285 West by-pass except early Sunday mornings.  

Heading south out of Atlanta we always hit very slow traffic on I75 at the Joneboro exits between mile markers 231 to 221.   Heading north if you stay on I75 and go through Atlanta you will find yourself in the 4th or 5th lane from the right when I285 merges in north of Atanta.  This is not a real problem but you will need to be prepared to start moving to the right.

Coming from the north or the south as you approach Macon we always take the Macon by-pass (I475).

We took our 2008 2350 through the Rockies in 2010.  We were towing a 2500 pound car and were able to top Vale Pass at around 55 MPH.  I never use the tow/haul mode.

One thing I learned about driving in the mountains is to keep your speed up. Don't wait for a downshift before applying additional throttle.   Once you lose your speed it is hard to get it back.

Perhaps a more experienced mountain driver can provide addition information on how to approach some long grades.

Here are two links that appear to mandate the use of Biodiesel in Minnesota.  Does not appear to be optional.  Perhaps someone from Minnesota can fill us in.

We normally tow a car and it is a good place to put bulky items like lawn chairs and grills.  When we don't take the car and need extra space we use a hitch carrier.

Here is a link that shows several different types of carries based upon your needs.  We use a flat cargo carrier.

41  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Replace Blue Ox Lubricating Washers on: July 11, 2014, 02:04:44 pm
My Blue Ox Aladdin tow bar is six years old and the lubricating washers were starting to show wear so I decided to replace them.  I was able to pick up a washer replacement kit at the Tampa RV show for $8.00. Finally got around to replacing all the washers yesterday .  Took about 2 hours  and it looks like it was well worth the time and effort.  Some of the washers were less than 1/16" thick.

Here is a link that shows what is included in the kit (84-0089 Tow Bar Washer Replacement Kit):

Here is a link to an instructional Video on how to install the replacement washers.

Ron,

   I bought this "Bug Gun" as a joke at a novelty shop for $2 many years ago.  I now carry it in the PC.  Works and is a whole lot of fun!!! You just pull the trigger and the swatter spring releases and hits the bug.

Here is another choice for a spray lubricant.

I find "BREAK FREE CLP" works great on everything. It is available at Wal-Mart in the sporting goods department. It works without attracting dirt and grime.

Here is a link to their website.

Welcome to the site.

We had the manual jacks on our  2008 2350 and when we ordered our  2012 2551 we also had the manual jacks installed.   The manual jacks are not hard to use if you remember the arrows show the direction the PC is moving not the direction of the jacks.  Friends of ours have the automatic jacks and they like that set up.

We think the jacks are worth installing for a few reasons:

1.  No need to carry leveling blocks or pieces of wood.
2.  On a level site extending the jacks will stabilize PC and remove any bounce or sway.
3.  A good resale feature.
