I see you haven't gotten any replies. Generac is out of Wisconsin, and they used to have full technical manuals on their website. If they no longer do, I'll bet they'll be very helpful if you call them.

I've heard stories about the rear blowouts causing trouble (not on born free's) but I doubt mud flaps would really help. Better to keep a very solid eye on your tires, including proper inflation and check them for overheating. Mud flaps or no, the biggest problems I've encountered with flying debris...

Mike & Linda...nice, very nice diagrams... :) I guess I'm fortunate ? my TV has several input options, and I can just choose between them. If I choose "antenna", I can use that for antenna, Cable or convertor box, and just change which is which in the setup menu, but without a diagram, I'm never...

The converter box for the analog to digital conversion *can* be hooked up with any setup. Your satellite cable is separate from your batwing antenna. The batwing antenna cable is the one with the black power boost switch. Run the coax from that outlet to the back of the converter box, and then run y...

I have found that powerwashing can take decals off. :) I appear to be missing a few on the top of the cap. Since she's not for sale, I've not sweated it. But that 50% opacity thing is truly cool. Except it would make getting hit by another vehicle very easy...because they cant see us when we're 100%...

I agree. The first place many people go for info. I often grab the laptop before I'd get up and get a paper dictionary. One is right here, and it's not the book. There's no excuse for not having a tech-savvy person keeping the website up to date, except stingy-ness...and that could cost them sales. ...

My coach is an '05 and has the newer bulb type, not the rope light. So I didn't even know the older type existed, and dint' check for it. I did see 3 different types of handles that light and are clear in the center. One was like mine. Two were different...and since I was unfamiliar, I didn't notice...

I found a place in Elkhart Indiana that is an RV factory outlet store that carries 3 different types of these handles. This is truly an overstock place, not a camping world type place. It was quite interesting. It's on a main local highway that goes south off the Indiana Tollway. If anyone is going ...

I have a very sturdy mount, but I take my TV down for longer drives, and throw it face down on the bed. Saves on all the bumps that would weaken things before it breaks them. If I'm only moving a few miles at a rally, that's okay and I'll leave it up. For an all day drive, I take it down. It's worth...

Thanks. The rv review must be new. I'm leaving in the morning headed direct for NH. I'll stop in CT on the way home. Had a prescription I couldnt get the establishment to move any faster on. Shame on them.

See you in NH!

Camping isn't such a big thing in Connecticut, is it? Seems that it just isn't very easy to find rv places there. Or am I missing something.

I just went to the coach net site myself today. Called the 800 number and told them I am a leapin' lion. My account will be active tomorrow. Had to have some vital info such as vin # for RV. That's it.

As for leaving the tank partially full...I recommend not. However, every once in a while, I'll fill it (black tank..use the sink) about 2/3 with clean water, drive around a bit and then dump. It cleans the tank up a bit. I sometimes just use the MH instead of the car for errands around town just to ...

I kept a really nice wicker basket from my Mom's and line it with plastic bags for garbage. Emptied daily. It sits next to the coach door, behind the swivel chair. It's a wicker basket and looks fine. It's small and doesn't get in the way. I use the same kind of collapsible hamper for laundry, and I...

We found a well-kept secret in the Bayfield Area of Wisconsin this summer. We wanted to go to the Apostle Islands, and I started doing research online. I found a kayaking website and folks there raved about a city park in Washburn that was a few miles south of Bayfield. They were right. The city of ...
