    I got the same e-mail presumably because i bought some replacement parts for my gps a while ago. I sure hope they did not get my credit card info! But we will find out soon enough!
  2. We just had a rally to protest the mandatory use of masks in a town near me! Oddly enough that same town has the highest rate of infection in my whole province. It appears we will cure Covid but we will never cure stupid!
  3. While doing a walkthru of our new Fullhouse with the dealer i pointed out two scratches on the kitchen floors. They replaced the tiles and gave us a pair of sliders made from hard plastic about 4 inches by 36 inches by about 1/8 inch thick. I make sure they are placed under the fridge area before i bring in the slide. So far no more scratches!
  4. My onan genset started to surge under load so i added a can of Seafoam fuel treatment. It took only about 15 min to notice it working and within a half hour it was running smoothly. I now add it to my motorcycles before storage as well.
  5. I have neither a camera or the ability to see my hitch in the mirror. I back up till i think i am close and get out and look. If i have to move the truck left or right an inch or two i will mark the tire position with my heel in the gravel or lay something on the ground so i have a reference point to move the truck left or right. But i always get out and look and sometimes i do it so many times that it is more exercise than i get all day!!😄

    Comfort Ride hitch issues

    Wow this thread sure took a turn for the worse! Why all the anger, to the point of name calling? There might be a back story but i doubt that it will change the fact that the hitch FAILED! Did it fail because of lack of maintenance? As far as i know there is no maintenance to be done on a weld. A periodic inspection might have hinted at the impending catastrophic failure but that failure should NEVER have happened in the first place! If you buy a hitch made by Billy Bob in his back yard there will be no expectation of safety but when you buy a hitch from a so called reputable company one expects a certain level of safety. I will wait for the back story to see if the hitch owner knew of the impending failure and did nothing but wait for that catastrophic failure so he could complain about the company! I am also interested to see what he might be lying about!
  7. Depending on your province you might have to pay the harmonized (gst+pst) tax on the hitch and the shipping. You will probably have to pay brokers fees as well!
  8. This might be too simple, but check that the door is not ajar or that the light switch is actually turning the light off. On my first trip with my motorhome i heard a beeping and in searching for the source i found the door to the fridge ajar. Didn't even know there was an alarm. Hope your problem is as simple!

  10. The inner tank on my DRV is also hard to get at so now the valve remains closed until the outer tank is empty. Much like the days of the reserve tank on motorcycles, when you run out on the main tank you switch to reserve and start looking for a gas station. I switch back to the outer tank once i refill and close the inner tank valve until i need it again. In the three years i have been doing this i have used about a third of the inner propane.
  11. This fan looks interesting. If it will clear the slide it might be the answer to the useless living room fan in my DRV!
  12. More than once we have opened the closet and found every hanger on the floor of the closet! Now, on move, day my wife will group ten hangers together and bind them with a small bunge cord. Now if we hit a good whopdedo the cloaths stay on the bar!
  13. When i was young and skinny i used to load my trials bike like this;
  14. I have loaded both hooked up and not. I do try to raise the front of the trailer as high as possible either with the air hitch or the front trailer jacks. Reasoning for that is to reduce ramp angle and breakover angle at the top of the ramp. I see no reason to put rear jacks down because my trailer is so heavy that rear jacks have no effect on stabilizing the trailer. When loading my bikes into my 16' enclosed cargo i used the same procedure hooked up or not.
  15. I know this should go without saying but i have made this mistake myself!! Make sure the valve on the full tank is open when you switch tanks! 😮
