    Towing in Overdrive

    I recently came across a discussion about NOT towing a trailer when the car is in overdrive. I have a 2004 Pontiac Vibe that I tow a Taos with. Plus, there was even discussion...the car really isnt designed to pull a trailer...even though the owners manual says 1500lbs is ok. Any feedback guys? Thks

    Annoyed with Camping World...Grrr! (vent)

    First of all..I have to agree with the customer. I work retail and IF I had told customers what she was...I would not have got a good review. Advice is just that..advice. You should not have to pay to have someone tell you how to use something they sell! I work for a major furniture company...

    Front lift arms adjustments

    Thks guys..BUT..you are talking to someone with zero mechanical ability. A dealer wants 150.00 to make an adjustment and a lube job. At least....I know it will be done right..plus..I have no idea what maintanence was done by the previous owner.

    Front lift arms adjustments

    I went to adjust my front lift arms..because they seem to raise too high. I chk'd the lift manual and went to chk the pullies in the front. BUT...both were in the hole nearest the frnt...which..Iam guessing is the lowest adjustment. The back two arms are fine. All manuals say about making them...

    Should we buy a fridge? (Coleman Columbia 1988)

    I agree with the comments on the height of the dorm fridges. I found out the hard way. I bought an Igloo fridge before the trailer and found with the pup closed....the fridge was too high. I was lucky enuff to find a used Sanyo fridge...quite small height wise...but great for a long...

    Lift arm adjustment and safety poles.

    Hey thks...But how would I know which other hole to use? Iam guessing that since the arm is lifting higher than the other three..that it need to be put in the hole to the right..and not the left? [?:~{] So..u just remove the cotter pin and move it to the next hole and just then replace the pin...

    Lift arm adjustment and safety poles.

    One of my four lift arms is out of adjustment. The front right arm lifts about an inch or two before the other three. So when u place the door in place...there is a larger space (not open) between the door frame and the roof. Looks odd. I read the manual..and it says to place the pin underneat...
