Probably best to stay with the NEC for wire. There are some ifs, and buts, in selecting the right wire. Like kind of service, installation, and environment (temp, moisture, sun, etc.). 

       Yes, that sounds right to me, and there's the issue of harnessing and the bundling effects that we have - particularly heat from individual wiring wrapped together.

My MC-5C came from the factory with locks on the front door, fuel door, battery box door, all four baggage bins, and the two exterior compartments under the driver - all keyed the same.  Double-sided Ford keys.  IIRC, all the parts are listed in the parts book, but I'd have to look this weekend.

If you'd like photos of the installation, send me a PM with your email address, as this forum doesn't handle large format photos well.

Sounds like a good way to go....although I don't think I can tow my 05 Trailblazer (2 wheel drive) four down without an expensive modification to it.  Using a tow dolly and towing it backwards sounds like a PIA.

I have an 2002 Ford Explorer that we want to tow on a dolly.  2 wheel drive.  Ok to do this?  Just put it in neutral and pray?

Best to find a copy of the owner's manual for your vehicle and see what it says about flat-towing.  Most manuals are available on-line if you don't already have one.

Trailer Life magazine publishes a towing guide annually, as does FMCA - usually in the Jan/Feb/Mar issue.

Towing backwards on a tow dolly is not recommended for safety reasons.

Do your homework before you end up with an expensive repair.

Compared to household wiring sizes, that chart seems to be very conservative. You don't have to run very far before the wire size gets upped considerably. Marine standards are different.

I have never camped in that area, but I have been through there many times with tractor trailers. The Hall of Fame is in North Canton, so I would look in campground directories in that area or north of it. Canton, to the south, is a depressed area and is not as safe, on the average. The closest campground I see on the map is Yogi Bear's Jellystone Campground in Uniontown, Ohio, about 10 miles away. They have 50 Amp hookups.

www.rvparkreviews.com lists 18 campgrounds in the Canton, OH, area.

www.rvparky.com is another site with lots of options listed.

Wherever you end up, grandson is going to have a good time!

Best to mount it on the back.

The deadly cycle,

There is no creativity, and no reality, when there are government coffers to back stop an operation.

Most unfortunately, bus parcel express demands the driver stop at the agencies to check for packages, because it's income, but stopping extends the time of the journey for the passengers.

Is passenger service still regulated in SK?

Replacement ventures will not be as likely, if red tape consumes capital...

There will be no saviour in the dogbus, they are just passing through, it has to pay a dividend back to the UK...

yup, kids, pensioners and the disadvantaged all stand to lose when the bus stops coming to town.

happy coaching!

Yes that was me on I-10 out of Fort Stockton Texas ran my 8v71 up like that, not intentional. That's why I would like to get governor set.
