  1. 2015 Chevy Sonic for sale in Georgetown, Texas. Set up for towing with lights, Blue Ox tow plate, ReadyBrake cable. Manual six speed transmission. About 65,000 miles. Light (less than 2,900 pounds) and seats four comfortably. Clear title, clean car. $7,000 Also available is a ReadyBrake RB-4000 Towed Vehicle Receiver Style Supplemental Brake System. This system is entirely mechanical, no electric components. Provides instant and fully proportional braking for your towed vehicle. $250 Photos available upon request.
  2. I am looking for a small SUV to tow behind our motor home. I already have a BlueOx Aladdin towbar. The ideal toad would have the BlueOX compatible tow plate, toad lighting, and toad brake system all set up and weigh no more than 3,300 pounds. My first choice is a 2013-14 Honda CRV.
  3. Before recharging the water softener, I remove much of the water in the tank with compressed air. I use the standard hose to schrader valve adapter (used to blow out water lines for winterization) and my bicycle pump to blow out the tank. With less water in the tank, I can easily add the dry granular salt. I also use the same compressed air method to blow the water out of the tank before stowing and transport. Less weight to lift! Quick disconnects on the water lines and schrader adapter reduce the time needed and potential for cross-threading.

  5. In my 2013 Monaco the fuse between the battery and the inverter/converter is in the white (actually translucent) box in the upper left of the battery compartment. Ours has blown one time, probably from overloading while inverting. It is a 300 amp fuse that I bought on Amazon. The plastic cover snaps off. Access isn't easy, I could only work on it with one hand!
  6. The water loss may be the result of siphoning from the tank through the vent/overflow. I have a 2013 Monaco Monarch. More than once I have filled the tank until it overflowed, then shut off the water supply. Water then continued to flow from the vent/overflow for 10 minutes or more. The first time this happened I looked at the water tank and it was partially collapsed from being sucked in by the water leaving the vent/overflow. Not pretty! To stop the siphoning I put air into the tank by using a winterizing fitting on the water supply and attaching a bicycle pump. In less than a minute after pumping air the flow out the vent/overflow stopped. Now when filling we watch the water level through an access port using a flashlight and stop before the water reaches the top of the tank.
