RE: 2016 ram 3500 dully??? gaser or diesel???

Now lets consider resale value in 5 and ten year points. The Cummins will come out hands down ahead at each point.

RE: Brands of Travel Trailers

TTs generally into two catagories. Wood frame and aluminum frame. Wood frames tend to be the lower grade, often termed light weight. They will have cheaper grade cabinets, thinner seating materials, less insulation and smaller tank capacities. Aluminum framed TTs can also fit into that catagory, but generally will have larger tanks, better cabinets and furniture. There really is no "high end" in TT world. They are almost always geared more to families who tend to use them 1 or 2 weekends a month. That does not mean that any TT cannot have a long long service life. Many do. It really all boils down to how well owners take care of their RV, and not so much how much you pay for one. As for brands I would consider if I were making a purchase today? Northwood, Nash and Arctic Fox would have to be high on my list.

RE: 5th wheel hitch position in the bed

Centered over the rear axle is best. Some short beds are just behind, but that can make for poor handling.

RE: WD hitch for Trailblazer towing 6000 lbs

Your TB will hate you! Towing anywhere clost to the limits will do serious harm to your vehicle and your attitude. That thing is simply not strong enough to work well.

RE: ac covers

Look again. When running warm air is brought in from the outside, the warm air passes across the coils and then passes into the interior. Yes, covering will help IMHO

RE: Fleet wood discovery slide roof replace

You need to first figure out how to take the slide out. And I mean completely out, off the RV. From there it is pretty simple to strip the rubber, insulation, and plywood. Then you can inspect and replace rafters or anything else that is compromised. Rebuild from the studs up making sure dimensions are accurate. New roof membrain and slide it back into the trailer.

RE: Storing with slide out?

Slides out = increased chances of leaks, more area incase of high wind. Slides in = not as easy to move around. It really is a personal choice. Out makes it easier to work inside. But if there is a chance of high winds or snow, out could increase chances of damage or water.

RE: Water heater relief valve dripping

Might be as simple as no air space in the tank. Turn off the water and water heater, drain the tank completely. Open and close the relief valve a couple of times to make sure it is seated properly. Close everything. Turn the water back on. Open a hot faucet tap until you get good flow. Turn on heater and wait. If that was the problem, you should have hot water in about 30 mijutes and jo drip. If it still drips, go to a big box store and buy a new one. P&T reliev valves rarely fail, so I doubt thats the problem.

RE: Hayward, CA to Lynnwood, WA

I5 straight shot. Only real mountains you will encounter are the Grapevine and siskiyou summit. 97 north from Weed scenic. Miss siskiyou but will have to down and up at the Columbia river and north of Goldendale 395 scenic. Easy drive most of the way. Some mountains.

RE: Help me do this right! (Plan B)

4 season suitability in a TT capabile of being towed by a F150 with 4 passangers on board? Not going to happen. First of all, there is no TT that is 4 season in your part of the country. South GA maybe, but definitely notmnorth of the Mason Dixon line. Second, a F150/1500 series with 3 to 4 passangers plus stuff is going to put a serious dentmin your towing capacity. Probably one of your best 3+ season trailers is going to be a Nash or Arctic Fox, both from Northwood in LaGrande,OR. Not the cheapest nor the lightest, but built on their own frame and stout, with good insulation. All but their smallest models will overload 150/1500 series trucks with more than two aboard.

RE: Towing with a 2015 Chevy 2500HD Duramax

Towing is totally different from load carrying capacity. Which is what your avter if you want to haul a fiver. A fifer is going to place approx 20% of its total weight dire tly over the rear axle of your truck. Since you dont have a trailer yet, use 20% of a fivers GVWR as your number of choice. Go weight your truck loaded ready to travel plus 200 pounds for hitch and subtract that from the trucks GVWR. Payload minus your intended fivers pin weight. Thats what you need to know.

RE: Forget about Chevy 1500 & 2500 series for truck campers now

Not new. Trucks have weight limit stickers for a long time. Just manyeople choose to ignore them.

RE: Suburban SW6DE Water Heater Question

120VAC power comes in either via a hard wired plug in cord set. From there it goes thru the cheezy little switch, temp limit pack to the heating element. The switches fail early and often. If you changed the thermostat pack its possible you either did not plug the wires in fully and completely, or you rubbed one of the wires on the raw sheet metal edge creating a short to ground. Happened to me, and Ive been doing wiring for years. So it happens.

RE: No brake lights! Very frustrating.

Bad ground or broken wire.
