RE: Direct TV - Pro's/Con's RV Mobile vs Home 'second room'

Get direct for home and just take the receiver from home and put it in your RV when traveling

RE: How much weight do you carry in your Trailer..?

How ever much is necessary to allow us to be comfortable for several months on the road.

RE: $3,5K for Disc Brake Install...Reasonable? Worth it?

1500 in parts the rest is labor. Labor seems pretty high IMHO

RE: Combo Washer/Dryer, is this right?

the washer comes in handy for small items like socks and undies. I haven't found a way to stop wrinkles. Using fabric softener helps. I don't do thick towels or sheets in it. With all the negatives I would rather have it than not. Sadly your missing out on a lot. We use ours for everything including sheets (queen) and towels with no issues. Wrinkles? Yea, some but if you remove stuff promptly and fold or hang it while still warm it becomes a non issue for 99% of the stuff

RE: Combo Washer/Dryer, is this right?

Advantage of combo,Load and forget. Disadvantage,small loads. We have a vented combo and like ot a lot. Small loads, yes, but so what? Wash a load every couple of days takes care of our clothes just fine. Start a load in the morning, around noon take dry clothes out. Maybe start another load and repeat. We dont sit around and wait for it, so wash/dry time is unimportant to us.

RE: Smart phone - Which service & which phone?

Verizon for sure. T mobile is OK in town but lacking in rural areas. As for data plans, start at mo more than 4gb and move up or down from there depending on your use. We have 3 smart phones and a mifi and can get by nicely on 6gb a month. And I am a fairly heavy user. As for phones? Motorola and Samsung both offer solid phones. Most of the others are lacking some things. The Galaxy S5 is a big phone and can be difficult to carry and handle. The good part is a big readable screen for surfing.

RE: Idaho to Bend OR

20 will be better. Some mountains from Ontario to Burns then basically flat land. 26 has the same mountains from Ontario to John Day, but from there it follows the river and another climb and decent to Prineville. Overnite? On 26 there is a state park just west of John Day. On 20 there aint much, maybe something in Burns is about all. Drive time is only about 4 hours either way, so overnight is not really necessary

RE: 1/2 ton Eagle HT 5th

Yes there is a difference. TT slower turning when backing, truck bed open for cargo, lower weight on the TV. Fifth wheel, faster turning, tracks better due to higher pin/hitch weight, loss of useful truck bed. There are more, but thats the big ones. BTW if your looking at "dry or shipping weights" forget them. They mean little. Neither of those numbers factor in, water, propane, food,clothes, or any other personal gear you might add in. Instead make your calculations on worst case, IE trailers GVWR numbers.

RE: Questions on new 15 Ram 3500 dual wheel

Man am I envious! My current (07 6.7L) dually has the 4.10 rear end. Fuel economy may suffer a bit, but I sure love how well it handles, especially in the mountains. Even going over the mountains I can run all day with cruise control on. It might drop one gear, but still keeps plugging along. BTW solo at 70+ I generally see 17 and towing I always see 10.5-11.5. Not the lie O meter mind you hut honest hand calculated. Personally I would opt out of the air ride unless it was air bags and a compressor. Ride might suffer a bit, but tried and true is the way to go in the long haul. Heck for what they want for that you could get the moon roof!

RE: Painted floor

Paint carpet? Or do you mean the linoleum floor?

RE: Perforated Leather on Ram - good thing?

Leather seats have been perforated for years. Today it is rare to find anything else. Generally todays leathers hold up quite well given proper maintenance. That means a good cleaning and conditioning several times a year.

RE: Odometer Problems

Who made the gage cluster? If it is a GM cluster they have had lots of issues. If not, I would guess a bad ground as the source of your problem.

RE: How to determine hitch weight capacity

I answered this in your other post. It should be stamped into the the underside of the trucks receiver. WRONG! That only gives the hitch capacity not the TV'S actual load carrying capacity. The only sure way to know is via a set of scales and reading the GVWR label on the drivers door post

RE: Need to look at those weight labels

Almost all to towables now come with a yellow tag glued on somewhere that states the weight as it left the factory, GVWR and a couple other useful pieces of information. Brochures are usually published way before production begins and are notoriously inaccurate.

RE: Dog Owners - Need Your Suggestions

Goldens are a great pet, except they are considered a large breed. They also require lots of exercise daily, and have lots of hair. But, if that is your leaning, think of a Lab/Lab mix instead. Some areas of the country rescue shelters will have lots of great mix breeds available for adoption for far less than a puppy mill dog.

RE: Highway 20 Oregon

Noce drive. Easy for anything. It is a normal highway used by all forms of traffic daily. It is slow through Philomath, speed in town is 25 and enforced.

RE: LT or P Tires ?

Mileage hit? Never heard of that excuse against LT tires. IMHO there is one and only one thing against a LT tire. They will ride a bit stiffer.

RE: Newbie Fifth Wheel Buyers...Need advice

How many hours a day do these businesses take? Camp hosting can stretch and suppliment any income you have. There are volunteer and paid positions all over the country. Some last a month some ask for 3 or 6 months stay in one place. Without that you will likely want 3 to 4 thousand a month to make it worthwhile.

RE: Looking to add solar

For only two batteries 150 watt panel should be OK. For hard core solar you will need a lot more of both panels and batteries
