Towing Stuff

I managed to stumble onto a Roadmaster Falcon F2 tow bar system for $20 from a guy who walked into our RV store and was giving up FT, and then got a Roadmaster Even Brake braking system for $550 on EBay.

Almost there now, just need the tow plates installed on my Wrangler, the wiring repaired/upgraded on my MH, and I'm ready for a toad test trip.

What's the best protection method for my toad from stones, etc.?

Oh, also: installed new Interstate house battery and new wiper blades.

Yahooo!

Big jobs lately. We just had a new front cabinet installed to hold a larger TV and move it back toward the window. This got rid of the head bumper. Then. so we could actually sit facing the TV we got a wonderful stress free chair that we pull out when we arrive at our site. We also removed the small couch and put a flip up table and small shelves in to have as a work space/desk. Now we want to get all the cabinet doors redone to look as good. That will be on our wish list.
Now it is in for mechanical needs. Getting the dash air conditioner recharged, the inverter is being replaced with a whopping 2000 watt, and we are having a wheel seal done. This is an expensive visit.
Do any of you other part timers find that it is often a $500 bill just to take your coach out for a week

There are many different ideas for protecting your toad. You probably want to search toad protection to find the different forums dedicated to that question.
If you are looking for information on mud flaps, we have a lot of information under the vendors spotlight forum for you to start with. Or give us a call.

Added a garmin dashcam recently and just tested it out this weekend ( i like a lot) Peace of mind if someone merges slow and late or brake checks or short stops on me. Will not prevent me from hitting someone but it sure will help in court and with the insuarnce claim.

Coleman LXE gas grill and a Mr Heater 12ft gas line to connect to my main tank. Then to Pepboys for some red lens repair tape because nobody has replacement running light lenses. And while up topside more LED lamp replacements.

We found perfect fit replacements by taking out the lens and measuring it every which way and then going on line to fine a suitable replacement by using the dimensions we measured. Winnebago bought the originals from someone. YMMV.

Finally bought a 20' flexible sewer hose support. Never used one for the old RV, but I saw the need for one when I camped at a campground where the sewer was a little on the high side.

If you are getting down To mid 20s or lower then also wrap heat tape around the fresh water riser and put a foam pipe wrap around it. Make sure the sewer hose doesn't have any standing water in it.

Make sure you have some source of heat in the bay's with water connections and the doors are reasonably tight. A drop cord with an incandescent bulb may do the trick.
