General Discussion / Re: Overhead AC on when set on Furnace

I did that once. Was an aha moment for sure.  Fortunately the dealer had all the original manuals less 1 in the booklet when I bought my rig.  I researched and downloaded the remaining one.  Very handy.

I would like to think that my RV is mouse proof but that would be very presumptuous.  Anyhow, not sure where they could get in. All closed up and I have not seen any entry points underneath.  But againÖpresumptuous. Since we check it regularly, I will make a point to really look for those little pesky things.  My wife put Moens Mouse Mix deterrent in aromatic bags throughout the RV, so weíll see what happens.

Gotta love hearing that.  That a bummer. Hope you find the source of entry.

Thank you.  We are very much looking forward to utilizing it.  One thing I noticed right off when we got the PC was that I did not like not having a way to travel around without completely packing up the PC to go explore.    However, here in the Seattle area, the rain has come so it might be a while till we get out camping.
Thanks everyone for the info,
 Steve

Hi all, I ended up going with the Roadmaster Even Brake 9400 system.  Given the wiring that was already in the vehicle (after looking very hard), I decided on that system.  I wanted the Stay-in-play; however, I did not want to spend that kind of money. So I purchased a gently used Even Brake.  I have it installed and it tests out fine.  I had to put the original bumper back on as it already had the base plates installed for a Roadmaster tow bar, so I picked up a Falcon 2 tow bar.  When I bought the Jeep, the owner just happen to have the Blue Ox, but it looked older and after researching, I found out that it was no longer produced. Itís in good shape, but it needs a bath and lube.  Anyway, looks like I will be limited on when I can go out to test the unit behind the PC due to weather and work.  Canít wait. 
Hope you all have a great evening. Cheers from the PAC NW.

Hi all.  I too upgraded all my lights with these LEDís as applicable.  Much nicer and now the light housings donít get hot either.  Very happy.

Yep, familiar with the death wobble.  Good reminder though. 
Thank you!

Thanks Ron. We like it.  We were not looking for new vehicles and I wanted something cheap but in good shape. You know, need to have my cake and eat it too. LOL.  This one was definitely an answer to prayer. That may sound odd for what it is (1992) , but it definitely was. The guy I purchased from was just a really cool guy and loaded me up with extra stuff that was not listed in the add like a full cover, new and unused bikini top,  blue ox tow bar, original bumper (has a brand new aftermarket one) and a full unused add-a-leaf kit..  We hit it off right away.

Unfortunately itís a 2.5 L low output. Lol. I got it October 4 and Iím still cleaning it up and it has very minimal rust. Mostly surface stuff that I can easily clean off. Itís in outstanding shape.

I use the demco stay in play in my 2005 jeep  rubicon.  Once installed all you need to do is throw a toggle switch  and ready to go .  Cost.  $625.  To get that price you have to be patient in your search.

What kind of tow bar do you use?  I inherited an older Blue Ox tow bar (no base plate) in the purchase of my Jeep recently but that seems like overkill. Pics would be greatly appreciated if possible.

Thanks for all the replies.  I was planning on using the ďStay-in-playĒ myself.  However, I do see that nobody here has a 30 year old Jeep such as I do.  And, I have no plans on changing every few years.  I still have a few more years till retirement but I can count them on one hand.  My concern was how antiquated my Jeep was with regard to its braking system compared to newer models.   Mine is in great shape by the way.  Again, thanks for the replies.  This info is very helpful.

Unfortunately there are zero indications of what system was there. Nothing as you suggested.  I was hoping to use Invisabrake, but not sure the the braking system will comply with the requirements of the system.

Hi all. I have a 1992 Jeep Wrangler that I want to use as a Toad on my 2012, 2552.  This Jeep was used as a Toad by one of the previous owners as some of the wiring and break-away switch is still present; however, I am not sure what system it was.  Does anyone have an early model year Wrangler that is used as a Toad, and if so, what Braking system do you use?
Any recommendations are greatly appreciated.
Thanks
