I saw a water filter mentioned, that the tank has shavings in it. What kind of filter is this and where exactly do you install it? So much to learn! We bought a video and watched that, read 2 books. But the test is in actually doing it yourself!
So many helpful hints here and I am so appreciative. I will take pics of the new rig once we get it here.
Have you checked with your dealer about WHO
will provide the PDI?
The water filter is in the compartment on the street side just in front of the rear wheels. It's a sticks and bricks type filter. I bought a package of 2 PUR
filters at WalMart, already used 1.
And now for the next phase of your adventure.
Which half of we will be driving your 360 and will the other half be navigating OR driving your car
Here are some simple rules (3) to maybe help you in the next few weeks
2. Always be aware of UP (what are you about to take the top
off of your new motorhome with). ESPECIALLY in your
neighborhood, the trees will be much lower.
3 NEVER violate rule #1.
Now that you've been thinking about your car.
BIG QUESTION: Is it possible to tow it with ALL 4 wheels on the ground?
Most manual transmission can.
Most automatic can't, some Saturn (BOO on GM for killing them), Honda CRV can, lots of towed resources on this and other forums.
Personally I chose to keep my daily driver (Mini CooperS automatic) and use a tow dolly.
Now back to the rules.
I always have jb out of the HM and directing me when backing up.
A few weeks ago a gentleman was trying to help. I STOPPED and could hear him saying come on back... I DID NOT! jb told him "he wont he can't see you in his mirrors or the backup camera", he moved and I continued backing up.
If/when you find yourself in that impossable position and have to back up with you car hooked up.
You might as well unhook, you just can't back more than a few feet with your towed hooked up.
