Any input would be very much appreciated. This is important stuff.

Many thanks,

We go thru our wine fast enough, it doesn't matter. Lol.

Carl,

Did you have to do anything to your equinox to pull it four down?
Assuming you pull it four down

Hi Barry,

We keep wine in the first bay on the passenger side, of course in a box and on their sides so the corks stay wet and don't dry out, we have had no issues with our wine at all. So I would say if you have a bay to put it in, it will be just fine.

Cheers !!!

Scam warning! Yesterday my finger accidentally landed on some ad while Sena was using me as a tree. An odd gray stripe popped up to say that my Apple device had been infected with a virus and everything but my life was now vulnerable. There was an 800# for Apple customer service that I MUST call IMMEDIATELY! I could not get the stripe to go away.

Suspicious, I goggled the number on my old iPad and read that this is a scam. The operator who answers requests your credit card information before any information can be given.

The only fix to get the gray stripe to go away is to reboot and then clear your browser history and cookies. Be careful!

I set it up with the help of my nephew. Installed the base plate and when it's time to tow, I connect things up and MAKE SURE it's in neutral, etc. They say to remove a fuse and I sometimes do that, sometimes not. I have a 12v charge wire to the battery in the Equinox from the RV umbilical wire.

I also start the engine every time I stop to 1) make sure battery is good and 2) they recommend it in the manual to keep the tranny lubed (they say each fuel stop but doing it more often doesn't hurt).

I've towed it thousands of miles at this point without any issue so I'm very happy with the setup and the car itself.

Ohms for our puppy, please. Mary took her in for her four month checkup. We noticed a few days ago the she was tender and yelped a few times when she was picked up. When the vet examined her, she noticed the same thing, as well as a dent in her chest where her sternum is. They took X-rays, and her sternum has a congenital malformation, and is tipped upwards toward her heart and lungs instead of down/level with the ground. Right now her heart and lungs are OK, but we will have to keep an eye on her.

Ohms, too, please, for Mary and our son. Mary got laid off September 1, and our son got laid off today. As much as I complain about w&#k sometimes, I appreciate having a job.

We have saved up our KOA rewards and this will be our last weekend camping until Spring. Boo hoo😥

Oh Cont-rare Amigo.. Nice try...

Global warming is said to melt the ice caps & this site will be under about 30 feet of water...

I have invested in some property in the AR Hills & will have "Ocean Front" property.. Yea, I guess that makes me a "Hill-billy"

We also pull an Equinox, and we love ours. Pull fuse 32, follow a checklist (double checked by both of us) and pull away in about five minutes.
