There are several different brands of wheels that easily remove decals, stickers, gummy residue, etc. from painted and other surfaces including gelcoat. The wheels appear to be made of a hard, rubber-like material and work sort of like a pencil eraser, wearing down as they're used. Used as directed,...

In another life, I was a military and an airline pilot. My wife was a flight attendant. We both started flying around the same time and met on one of our initial trips. We were based in the north (she - ORD, me - JFK), but neither of us liked the cold weather so we moved to FL and commuted to work. ...

Jalan, We replaced our M/S with M/S2 just over a year ago. They were the only ones the dealer had and he did say something about the compound in the M/S2 standing up better to weather checking in the Florida heat. The M/S2 is a 70,000 mile tire as opposed to the M/S being a 60,000 mile tire, but tha...

Welcome aboard Ted. Good to see posts from the owner of a Lazy Daze, a very fine motor coach. Thank you for the link to your website. It is well done and full of great info. I especially like your "Musings;" definitely deserves a bookmark :-) Toad, of Toad Hall, I imagine, a meteorologist, ergo wxto...

Goodrich has been owned by Michelin since 1989 ( http://www.nytimes.com/1989/09/23/business/michelin-to-acquire-uniroyal-goodrich.html ). I don't know if Michelin changed the Goodrich tire formula to align with their products or not but I have heard from competent authority (DIL's father owned a tru...

Hello Russ, From the picture that you posted, it appears that the "scratches" are really gelcoat cracks. Generally gelcoat cracks like those occur in gelcoat that has been applied too thick. For each formulation of gelcoat there is an ideal thickness where the cure will produce the desired finish, i...

A buddy had PermaPlate's Clearplate applied to the high wear areas of his Beamer X5 (front end, door handles, door edges, rear entry, etc) and he likes it very much. The Clearplate looks like a thin, clear film applied to the surface that doesn't change the appearance at all, though, if you look clo...

Hans, I've used Garmin products for many years (mostly boating). I found the best selection of mounts at http://www.gpscity.com (scroll to RAM mounts). I have used a numerous variety of the articulating RAM mounts that GPSCity offers for supporting everything from antennas to very heavy radar units ...

Tom,

I haven't accumulated a lot of towing mileage but, with a couple of round trips between Apollo Beach, FL and Greenville, SC and several trips between Apollo Beach and Dothan, AL, I haven't noticed any damage to our Wrangler.

John, Many thanks for the heads up info on the IOD circuit breaker. That is one extremely easy solution to disconnecting the battery + cable. I knew there was a valid reason for my procrastination in installing a disconnect switch other than just being my normal lazy self. You made my day! Thank you...

Larry, We also have the Roadmaster braking system on our 26RB. If I remember correctly, the price quote you have is the same as we paid for the braking system, a Sterling tow bar with base plates and installation. Camping World (Tampa, FL) did a very nice job on the installation and we especially ap...
