I made my own fuse bypass for about $3.00.  I tow a Chevy HHR (a great tow car).  I used the instructions on this website: http://fulltime-rv.blogspot.com/2009/06/new-tow-car-installing-bracket-and.html.  Scroll down to the second half of the site.  The bypass switch works great.

I suggested #rightsize since many folks now talk about "right sizing" rather than "going smaller."

Aimee, I believe this is the picture you mentioned taken in Chicago.  Its under the Begin Route 66 sign (http://www.mytripjournal.com/HistoricRoute66).  It was taken at approximately 81 E Adams St., a half block west of Michigan Avenue and the Art Institute of Chicago.  I suspect not many, if any, other RVs have been there!

We have a 3100 with a slide. Im sure its an option, but I cant imagine not having the slide what a difference when its out! And youll get a lot of that cost back when you sell it. So in the end, the cost is not that much more.   nod

The door between the dining/bedroom areas is of the accordion type, mainly because the passenger side bed is slightly longer than the driver side bed and the door closes at a slight angle. Its never been a problem for us. Were now in Florida for a month, and I close that door when I get up in the mornings

They probably could be replaced. But we always stay at campground with electric, so wouldn't consider the expense of switching out the florescent lights - they work well for us as is.   Smile

Our 2011 3100 has the two fluorescent tubes and a single dome light bulb in it.  They are really great.  The smaller dome light makes a good light in the evening for watching TV.  Easy to switch to the fluorescent bulbs when more light is needed.  Assume they quit making the lights  sad as we really like them a lot.

Wow, keelhauler.  If you were here, Id give you a big kiss; well at least firm handshake.  The switch was on (from trying to start the engine).  After turning it off, the compass/thermometer in the rearview mirror, the rearview camera, and the step, all starting working correctly!  I did give you a helpful vote.  Great.   ThumbsUp

Well, that doesnt really address my question about the Advance Auto AutoCraft Silver Battery and why the specs say Auxiliary Battery; Requires special deep cycle battery when it is advertised as an exact replacement for a Ford E450 (Advance Auto and AutoZone the only stores in our little town).

It may a moot point now as the battery finally took a charge.  But now a new problem.  After disconnecting the battery, cleaning the terminals, reconnecting and charging, the review camera monitor stays on even with the ignition turned off.  The compass and thermometer in the rearview mirror also stay on.  Very weird.  Suggestions from anyone?

I mean the Ford truck battery, not the two deep cycle coach batteries.

I may have to replace my truck battery.  It was totally dead, and Im trying to charge it.  In looking for a replacement (Advance Auto and AutoZone the only stores in our little town), I found at Advance Auto: AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 65, 750 CCA, $131.99, good reviews.  The specs say Auxiliary Battery; Requires special deep cycle battery.  My question is: is the original battery I have now considered a deep cycle battery?  Should I have the charger setting on Deep Cycle?

I get about 9 mpg towing a Chevy HHR. Eked out 10 mpg, not towing, flat terrain.  Rarely go over 55 mph.

Buy the levelers. They are very convenient and add greatly to comfort.  Plus you get a big chuck of the cost back when you sell.  So ultimately, theyre not all that expensive
14  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Temperature in your computer taskbar on: February 07, 2015, 11:28:40 am
Although I have an outdoor thermometer, a quick look at the taskbar (see pic) is cool to see the current temp and just a mouse click for complete weather for my current location plus multiple locations with a program called Weatherbug.

See under the heading Weather in the taskbar here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2466721/three-easy-ways-to-get-the-weather-on-your-desktop.html. It explains how to Weatherbug without installing other unwanted programs.

Get Weatherbug here: http://weatherbug.downloadhelp.net/?lp=adwords&tg=us&kw=Weatherbug&mt=e&ad=64400446159&pl=&ds=s&gclid=CjwKEAiAjNemBRCgp_vymcvVym0SJACRp_UZslw2ci6FfZ-YDW-wA_mXgetfmmxAVeu7Ubuy0P6jpBoCRoPw_wcB

The taskbar shows the current temp all the time and simple mouse click for the complete weather for my current location plus customized multiple locations.

Here's a discussion on CB antenna mounts.  Should work for other kinds too: http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,1451.msg11076.html#msg11076
