Perhaps second only to an ice cream truck heading toward you with an upbeat jingle, seeing a mail truck is usually comforting. Yet, the U.S. Postal Service always seems wrought with controversy. Postage is going up — again. Mail is lost and stolen or delivered to the wrong address. More recently, the postal service was criticized for not distributing election ballots quickly enough. A mail truck and its carrier still delivering the mail in the snow. And perhaps most importantly, the postal service is facing a concern among […]

RV Review: TAXA TigerMoth Travel Trailer

By |2020-12-14T15:17:29-06:00December 14th, 2020|Tech Tips|

Taxa Tiger Moth hero By Tony Barthel I see a lot of people asking what they can tow with Jeep Wranglers. The TAXA TigerMoth might just be the answer, depending on the Wrangler. According to Jeep, the Wrangler can tow between 2,000–3,500 lbs. depending on the model, and the TigerMoth fits right into that range. It also has the same tough, go-anywhere appearance as the Jeep. That makes sense since this is designed just for the same backwoods trails as that Jeep. The TAXA TigerMoth is more of […]

5th wheel hitch advice

By |2020-12-14T15:17:06-06:00December 14th, 2020|Tech Tips|

I had the B&W companion for a few years, it’s a really well made hitch. I had the slider companion hitch which is larger than the regular one. The problem I found was the weight of the hitch makes it really difficult to remove, and also takes away some of your payload. I recently sold that hitch and bought the Anderson ultimate 5th wheel hitch. It’s really well made with lots of great reviews, and it’s super lightweight. You can easily install and remove anytime by yourself, and […]

cabin dome lights on a 2003 ford e-450 super duty?

By |2020-12-14T15:16:59-06:00December 14th, 2020|Tech Tips|

we bought a used 2004 coachmen freelander 30′ class C with a ford e-450 6.8l v10 a couple of weeks ago. one thing i’m unable to understand is the courtesy lights. the only light we have in the cabin is a little square, toggle-switched thing with a single bulb. has to be manually turned on, unlike the vast majority of cars where the doors have a switch in them that turns on map or reading or courtesly lighting. question: does this rig even come with door-switchable lighting? if […]
