  • WillieontheRoad said: Thanks rkj, Further reasons why we should hold onto the 2016 V6 Grand Cherokee that we love and not jump ship.  Besides, she only has 16,000 miles on her...just a baby. Keep Calm and T@B on, Alan, Joan and Willie P…
  • JustJohn said: While camping for the last couple of weeks, my gas alarm has been acting strangely. When I use the  shower the gas alarm goes off. I pressed the reset button and it resets in 3 or four minutes and does not go off again until I sh…
  • Another option: Battery Tender 081-0069-6 Ring Terminal Harness with Black Fused 2-Pin Quick Disconnect Plug https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000NCOKZQ/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_9z5VAbVSV4DT7
  • Thanks so much @Tabnero and @Capt_KLR.  I’m making some screens for my CS but I want to use the same type of rail.
  • seiched said: I am about to purchase a T@b.  I am baffled by towing even after all the research I have done.     I have a 2014 Ford Escape Ecoboost -- I believe it is a 2.0 engine with FWD. A. Do you think this car  can handle the T@B B.  Do I…
  • @Capt_KLR Thanks for your reply! There seem to be two types of plastic keder rail.  Looking at what you received, can you tell which one Pahaque is using? Does it look like this: https://www.sailrite.com/Awning-Track-Flanged-White-48 Or like this…
  • I use this Coleman 10w panel to keep my battery topped up. It doesn't require a separate controller and so far (5-6 months) it seems to be working fine. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006FW3G2G/
  • CincyKid said: @robpt don't know about the screen house to the left in my photo, belonged to my camping neighbor. It looks like a Clam. The solid side panels attach over the screens with velcro. Here is mine (Clam Traveler).
  • I just bought a folding bike and I plan to carry it in the T@B. 
  • DIDOTAB said: I too have researched solar power both portable Zamp 120 and roof mounted.  Most favorable is the portable because of versatility to move it around and capture most sun when needed - can't do that with roof mount especially if TAB…
  • I moved my spare tire to the tongue almost as soon as I bought my T@B last spring and I haven't had any problems with sway (3000+ mi) . I'm not sure where the water tank is on the newer CS but I have an older (2013) model that has the tank at the ve…
  • drazilgod said: The two led "reading lights" at the back were just too bright. We replaced them with the exact fixture from Amazon in warm white.  Do you have a link to the warm white replacement? 
  • I had heard about this problem from other t@bbers so I have a pair of bungee cords that I wrap around the clamshell handles that secure to the levelers. 
  • I've found that virtually all of my troubles have been eliminated by being sure to pull the trailer just a tiny bit forward after backing up. This seems to shift the load on the ball enough that the hitch comes right open.  I didn't have to do this …
  • leenscottfl said: Marceline it was sooo easy even I did it. There are 4 screws holding the tub to the frame. remove them and it comes right off. New one attached to the same holes. I did have to buy a longer LP hose but Ace Hardware had them. L…
  • leenscottfl said: Being inspired by the members of this forum I decided to jump in and replaced my plastic bubble with a trailer tongue box. Not only did I gain much room for "stuff", it afforded me "free" space for my adjustable hose carrier h…
  • marknjudy said: I had this problem and reasoned that, with everything loaded in the bed of my truck, it actually lowered the tongue an inch. I switched to a hitch with 1 inch less drop and everything has been perfect since then. If you're unabl…

  • If Toyota says it will tow 3500lbs it will tow 3500lbs.  You’re really the only one who can answer if that will work for you.  How are are you planning to use the trailer (monthlong trips or just weekend jaunts to a nearby state park)? How much gear…
  • dsatwork said: So we just entered the world of hot spots and went with Verizon because of the coverage. @Verna we don't have a Verizon phone or account until we walked into the Verizon store to sign up for their pay as you go plan. We paid $50 …
  • Dual lock tape is probably a better choice than regular Velcro for this kind of thing. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00JHKTDMA/
  • I'm not planning to remove it. I just want to attach a piece of artwork to cover the front.  So I really just need the dimensions of the front face of the AC unit.  Fast forward to 8:18 in this video: https://mandyleaphoto.com/2017/02/23/18-camper-m…
  • @Verna can you confirm that you can tether other devices to the straight talk phone? I would definitely be interested in a pay-as-you-go device that uses the Verizon network. 
  • Librarydragon said: Sea Cliff has bathrooms and showers, so I'm not sure why you have to be self contained.  Can you please share your source for your earlier comment ("Sea Cliff State Beach in Aptos CA, won't let you stay if your rv isn…
  • newell said: We're planning a six week trip across country. We're looking at the AT&T Hot Spot "Velocity" device for a dependable  internet network on the road. Does anyone have any experience with this type of device for use with a laptop …
  • Librarydragon said: Sea Cliff State Beach in Aptos CA, won't let you stay if your rv isn't self contained. Can you elaborate on that? Are you saying they wouldn’t allow a clamshell? I can’t find anything on the website. 
  • I have the Drive 4G-M but I haven't had a chance to use it much yet. I have an ATT phone and a Tmobile hotspot. In remote locations I seem to get a better connection with the hotspot. https://www.weboost.com/products/drive-4gm
  • rkj__ said: I have not weighed It, but when empty, our T@b CS-S is a little too light in the tongue.  It feels bouncy.  It is much better with a full water tank, and a few heavier items in front of the axle.   My CS-S felt a lot better a…
  • ScottG said: I'm not sure what you are calling a "surge brake cable" but your 2016 most certainly has electric brakes. While the T@B isn't a huge trailer, it's heavy enough that you want those brakes operational. It may even be a legal require…
  • Tabaz said: Found this online - a 2018 model at a local dealer: The location would probably bump my right knee, so I'll keep the Costco Nut Jar holder. Looks like this: https://www.westmarine.com/buy/sail-systems--surface-mounted-c…
  • Based on my “winging it” experience last summer in CA OR & WA, weekdays aren’t too hard but weekends (Friday & Saturday nights) can be tough.
