I have used a VOIP for many years. Started with Vonage, switched to Sun Rocket. When Sun Rocket went out of business last month, I looked around for a replacement. I found the Magic Jack (http://www.magicjack.com) and ordered one. It is a very small device and attaches to a USB port. It can work wit...

I had a 97 26 ft (Used with only 15,000 miles at time of purchase), and I had the same problem with those lights. I found that if you twisted the light in one direction, it would come on, and if you twisted in another direction, it would go off. Apparently it had something to do with the wiring conn...

Just a reminder, you can not get a better system at any cost than the PressurePro TPMS. I did a considerable amount of research before I purchased my own PressurePro system. As the ad says, "I was so impressed, I "bought" the company". I have a web site at http://www.tpms.us which is very informativ...

A new rubber valve stem will work with the PressurePro sensors because the rubber is still flexible. As the wheels turn the 3/4 ounce weight of the sensor will cause the rubber valve stem to flex slightly. As they become older, the rubber valve stems tend to become stiffer, with the result that the ...

I had the same problem. I thought of drilling another hole, but I was assured by the "experts" that, although that would work, it would "weaken" my entire tow bar configuration, so I opted for the special BlueOx bar. Before you drill another hole, I would look at other alternatives. Talk to Bornfree...

Thanks, I was hoping that it was something as simple as that.

I have seen controllers selling from $59 to $200. This is going to be a one time trip of about two or three weeks. Naturally I would like to get by as cheaply as possible.

What should I be looking for in a controller?

I may have to tow a trailer (car hauler) with electric brakes.

Does anyone know if the 2002 24RB is prewired for installing an electric brake controller?

I just had a Batwing installed on my BF. What convinced me was when I would walk around the campground at night and I would see other campers with a batwing receiving the local stations while all I was receiving was snow. Camping World recently had a sale on the Batwing for about $99.00. I had it in...

The following statment is from their web site:

"Located in Lake Forest California, Ackton Inc. is the North American sales, marketing and logistics arm of a leading SE Asian electronics and sensor manufacturer."

The main company is located in Tiawan where the product is probably made.

I agree. It is even more important to hear about a bad rv park then it is to hear about a good rv park. Negative comments should not be deleted. There is always a possibility that the Club could be sued as mentioned but if that happens, just close the club down. No suit would extend to the members (...

I have a 24RB and it has sofa bed one one side and twin bed on the other. I have storage in the cab over with doors. To make the sofa bed somewhat more comfortable, I purchased a piece of foam that is placed on the "back" side of the open bed, which brings it just about even with the "seat" portion ...

I did have a storage pod installed by the factory on the roof of my BF. However, all I have stored in it is a spare tire, no wheel. I would not recommend a roof storage for items that you need periodically as trying to go up and down the latter carrying something is not a good idea. I like the idea ...

It has been my experience that I can actually brake faster with a tow with its own braking system than I can with the motor home alone. You have four additional wheels on the ground stopping you from going forward.

Bornfree used to furnish a new membership with the purchase of a new Bornfree.

You might get your money back or you might be paid up for two years.
