It's good to have a wife that pushes your buttons. Especially when it's the right ones...   Wink

keelhauler, heres your solution.  We had the same problem which was that the fan was set to ON rather than to AUTO. Click the button for the fan (first click), then change the fan setting to AUTO. Should work fine. If you use the AC and the fan is set to ON, the fan will run continuously, but will go on and off with the AC if the fan is set to AUTO.

Any experience with higher octane gas?  Many years ago, I put premium in my Class A in error.  Got two MPG better.  Never willing to spend the extra try it on purpose.

Well, that was over 20 years ago, and dont remember all that info.  Some of the synapses in my 70 year-old brain have stopped working.  It was a true dually and an automatic.  Too much weight for four cylinders at times.  Headed up the hill at Jellico, TN (over two miles at a steep grade) we were barely over 20 mph when reaching the top.  I think all the rocking from my wife laughing so hard was the only thing that helped us make it.   Smile

Like Ron, we also had a Toyota based motorhome (used); the dealer called it a Micro-Mini.  It was our first motor home after camping in tents and a popup.  The manufacturer was EZ Ryder out of California.  In all the time we camped in it, never saw another one.  Four cylinders underpowered, but never had any serious problems with it.   And it had all the bells and whistles for the time, including a 3-way fridge.  Bed-over-cab, rear bath and dinette.  Following that, a Class A (Mallard -sold it after an Alaska trip); a bigger Class A (Southwind); a PC (2900); and now our second PC (3100) and last RV.  Pic of the EZ Ryder attached.

We have a Chevy HHR tow car (which we love), and have to pull a fuse when towing.  Found this site, http://fulltime-rv.blogspot.com/2009/06/new-tow-car-installing-bracket-and.html,  explaining how to make your own for an HHR but it would work for any car (skip the first part on installing a tow bracket).  Always intended to do this, but never got it done.  An RV buddy had a friend who made one for him easy he says.

You can also buy one, but pricey!  http://www.amazon.com/Blue-Ox-BX88271-Bypass-Switch/dp/B009APJ2UU

We always stay in campgrounds.  Our concern is safety.  Stayed in a parking area one night, one time, and my wife said never again she didnt sleep all night.  Do you feel safe staying overnight in these areas?

As I was watching the video, my wife came into my office.  I showed the part of the video I was watching which included the wiring.  She said, Oh Lord, I dont even want to know! and left.  LOL

As for the B.E.S.T. Bug-Off Bug Remover - yes, I always wash with soapy water after using.  And as quickly as possible.  But the stuff does remove bugs quickly.

For getting bugs off, this is absolutely the best stuff ever, recommended by a friend: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002EW5FWU/ref=oh_details_o00_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

and when used with a long handled scrubber like this, makes easy work of the cab-over: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002G246T6/ref=oh_details_o00_s01_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

along with a handheld bug scrubber for the grill, mirrors, etc. like this bought at AutoZone: http://www.amazon.com/Viking-845100-Microfiber-Sponge-Colors/dp/B001GJ7HCI/ref=pd_bxgy_auto_img_y

We had a problem with water coming under the slide in very heavy rain when parked and with the slide out.  With jacks, the solution is easy.  When level, tilt ever so slightly to the drivers side.  The indicators still show level.  No leak.

My Trip Journal offers a travel log through Good Sam.  Its free and pretty easy to use.  We used it for our Route 66 trip: http://www.mytripjournal.com/HistoricRoute66  and Pacific Coast Highway trip (back-to-back).  There are thousands of trips at that site included full-timers.  Were seriously considering driving The Lincoln Highway next year and will probably use My Trip Journal again.  Thats our picture you see at the top of this forum page (if you're logged in).  It was taken on Adams Street in the heart of the financial district in downtown Chicago under the street sign, Begin Historic Route 66, (dont try that in a Class A or Fifth-wheel).

Thats also us in the Phoenix brochure: http://www.phoenixusarv.com/2013/brochure/info.jpg.  The travel log is free but has a paid option for more features, mainly no advertising.

I use System Mechanic which backs up the registry, cleans the cache, and hundreds of other maintenance things continuously and automatically.  Keeps things running smoothly all the time. http://www.iolo.com/products/system-mechanic-professional/

And for backup, I switched to Carbonite several years ago.  http://www.carbonite.com/

Keeps files backed up continuously online and nearly immediately.  I then upgraded to Carbonite HomePlus about a year ago.  In addition to continuous online file backup, it backs up the entire hard drive once a day to an external hard drive (you furnish).  Its a mirror image: files and programs and operating system.  If theres a crash not caused by a hard drive failure, just restore everything.  Get a virus? Just restore everything to an earlier date.  Takes a few hours to restore, but it works perfectly (more than once).  I use a Seagate GoFlex 1 TB Portable External Hard Drive; it goes along in the PC just fine: 

http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-FreeAgent-Ultra-Portable-External-STAA1000101/dp/B0045JLPMO/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1378551590&sr=8-2&keywords=goflex+hard+drive

And I did have hard drive failure three months ago.  Dell replaced the hard drive under warranty.  Six hours later, I had everything restored on the new hard drive exactly as it was before the failure.  Although Ive never tried it, Carbonite claims you can access files anytime, anywhere from any internet connected computer, smartphone or iPad.
