RE: Cost for a reliable rig

Truck? 30K should get you a decent low to mid mileage 3500 diesel. As for a fiver? 25 to 75K depending on size, age, options. For instance.... my 40K miles 2007 Ram 4X2 quad cab dually if I were to sell right now it would be 30K my 2005 36 foot fiver in pretty good condition with no leaks would be 25K. That includes new carpet, new slide toppers and a quality queen mattress, plus a slew of other options.

RE: Buildig an RV Pad

As long as the county allows it I see no real issues. I might suggest, and depending on your budget a cover might be a good idea. A proper cover could encorporate a room with electricity and hookups installed so you could simply slide in a portable deck allowing you to walk out your RV door and into your extra room.

RE: 5th wheel cover

Bad idea IMHO. What happens when moisture and condensation occur? Mold and mildew seem to be the logical conclusion. Boats, at least those that are wrapped for transport are mainly fiberglas, and the wraping is only on for transport.

RE: Help a newb shop.

Arctic Fox or Host would be my two top choices. Both built in the PNW with top reputations.

RE: Eternacaulk

Never heard of it. Eternabond is a tape product that works very well for a variety of places on an RV.

RE: total rewire/rebuild of 1979

Before starting any wiring, make a plan mark exactly where you want each switch, each light, each fan. Then it is a really simple matter to run the wires. Most lights are on one fuse, so it should be pretty simple. Things like water pump, refer, furnace are usually individually fused.

RE: Rubber vs Solid Roof

Fiberglas might last a bit longer. But few keep an RV long enough thatmthey need to replace the roofing. Fiberglas if damaged is harder to repair.

RE: Need Some Advice Re. RV Refridgerator

Replace the cooling unit. I suspect at its age there is very little else to go wrong. Get an Amish cooling unit. They appear to be built to much better standards and far cheaper than one from Dometic.

RE: 2011 Ram 2500 Input

Thats a lot of miles on a 6 year old truck. Was it a hotshot truck? The motor is good for 500K miles, but everything else will need work before that.

RE: Moving from a bumper pull to a fifth wheel ?'s

If and thats a BIG if the fiver actually scales out loaded around 9000 pounds, that means you will be dumping around 2,000 pounds on top of the rear axle. That is in addition to the 150 to 300 additional pounds for a hitch. Simple answer is does your truck have enough load carrying capacity to do that?

RE: Need some battery advice!

RVs need 12VDC to work. If you had 6VDC you have at least three cells shorted or something else going on

RE: Older phone question

Had an S4 loved it except the horrible battery life. When we were i our favorite park the battery would be toast in less than 3 hours. Got a new Motorola Droid and in the same park the battery was still going strong after all day. Upgrade to a new phone. You will not regret it.

RE: Old satellite dish & D10 receiver

Should. Just need to contact Directv and ask them. Remember that is probably a SD only device and Direct is phasing out SD programing.

RE: 120 power not working the water pump or landing gear

Landing gear and water pump are 12VDC. So it appears you have a battery problem. Start gy having the battery load tested and move on from there.

RE: Tire chains questions

Just bite the bullet and buy a set of dually chains. Like someone has already mentioned, if you go to Schwab and by them, return unused ones in the spring for a full refund.

RE: Anyone towing 17k GVWR 5er with 2004 GMC Sierra 3500?

Again, RAWR, FAWR, GVWR will all be listed on the tag on the drivers door post. Took me all of 30 seconds to get to the 2004 TL towing ratings. Follow down to the GM/Chevrolet ratings, look near the bottom you will find 3500 listing with the D/A. The bottom one is when you look at the foot notes is a dually crew cab 4X4. If yours is not that configuration, you will have to look until you find your configuration. There is trailer towing ratings and another set of numbers for fifth wheel ratings.
