RE: headers

...I'll stay with single exhaust, so the x pipe is out Spending money for a nice set of headers, but leaving it single exhaust kind of defeats the purpose. The idea is to get the gasses to flow out with little restriction. Single exhaust is more restrictive than dual exhaust. Suggest going with dual exhaust if you really want to feel and see the benefits of your headers.

Anyone ever call a Standby Sam member?

I've only been a Good Sam member since 2007, but my Dad was a member for many years. I am, and he was a Standby Sam member. For those of you who don't know what Standby Sams are, here's from their web site: The Good Sam Club is about service, helping out our fellow RVer, and that spirit is what fuels our Standby Sams program. Standby Sams are Good Sam members who volunteer to provide emergency advice and referrals to fellow members traveling through their area. This group has helped hundreds of Good Sam members over the years by providing contact information for local campgrounds, mechanics – even a good restaurant! We are pleased to report there are nearly 2,000 Standby Sams throughout the United States and Canada. We have never been called on to help out a fellow RV'er. Has anyone here been called, or has called a Standby Sam member? If so, what was your experience? BTW, Here's their site:Standby Sam Volunteering Directory

RE: Brake pads for Ford E 350

If you were able to get 71,000 miles on the original pads, why not put the same brand back on? Ford made your original pads, put Ford pads back on. If you find something that works, stick with it. Don't go cheap on your brakes.

RE: Bad Trip

I see you're a Good Sam member. Next time you run into bunches of trouble, why not call a Stand By Sam? There's 115 volunteers in North Carolina, including me. Someone local might give you a name & number to a good garage or dealer or might be able to lend a hand. Could save you some troubles. Good luck on your next trip.

RE: Boone to Asheville NC Rt 321 and Rt 64

I recently drove 321 out of Boone through Blowing Rock. In and out of Blowing Rock the road is tight, some construction, narrow in some spots. I was in a car, I wouldn't want to be towing my 37' 5th wheel this way. Once a little past Blowing Rock it was OK, though. I know it's a lot longer, but I would stick to 421 to I-77 South.

RE: Fayetteville RV Resort

Fayetteville RV Resort (formally Wade KOA) is located in NC on I-95 at exit 61. Yes, it is a very nice CG with 2 pools, large sites, and a clean park.

I hope Jake is your dog's name... I have an uncle named Jake, but he's house broken.

RE: Holley four barrel carb exchanged for same list # NO!

As mentioned, there is probably an inline filter somewhere you should check. It is also possible for dirt to enter around the air cleaner is improperly installed or a dirty or cheap air filter. This can cause a problem within the carburetor.

RE: Fiver with Bed slide

My previous fiver was a Sabre. We really liked it. Here's a nice floorplan that you may like that is less than 10,000# empty: http://palominorv.com/productinfo.aspx?model=sabresil&page=floorplandetails&floorplanid=5353&RVType=FW

RE: question on tire research

I recently replaced the Akuret ST tires that came on my fiver with Maxxis M8008 ST tires. While in the shop watching the tires mounted and balanced, I rolled 3 ST tires, same size, next to each other. One of my Maxxis, an Akuret, and a Tow Master. All were ST235/80R16 Load Range E. The Maxxis was heavier, its sidewall was thicker and more firm with less flexing when weight was applied. My Maxxis were made in Thailand. The other two were made in China. I replaced the original tires on my fiver because one had a ply separation resulting in a grapefruit size bubble. This was the 3rd time I had a tire failure of an ST tire, all different brands, all made in China. I don't care what the name is on the side of the tire, if it's an ST tire made in China, it is not built to the same quality standards as my Maxxis or the USA made Carlisle ST tires on my Dad's cargo trailer (though they are old and time to be replaced). Best of luck with your tires, regardless of where they're made.

RE: Tires for my fifth wheel.

1) What size tire do you have on your Montana? 2) I would be willing to bet that you are running way under inflated at 75 psi. You will receive numerous suggestions on installing LT trailer tires vs ST trailer tires. Your marathons are ST trailer tires. I run Maxxis M8008 ST 16" tires on my fiver. I really like them and I could afford them. Maxxis is the ONLY ST tire to run. Two popular LT trailer tires are Michelin XPS Ribs and Goodyear G614 trailer tires. Stay away from any ST tire made in China as they don't have a great track record. As mentioned, Maxxis is the ONLY ST trailer tire to consider if you choose to go with ST tires. Run the ST tires at Maximum pressure. Be sure to have them balanced, too.

RE: Are we just Too Picky!!

Theater seating across from a 40" LED Smart TV, plenty of counter space, HUGE 30"x 60" shower, 100" wide? Go with the Columbus 320RS. It's only 6" longer than you mentioned in your later post.

RE: GPS Garmin

I bought a Garmin 465T a couple years back on sale because they were pushing the new 760T. It has trucker/RV routing based on length, width, height, and weight. I've updated the map and added some special POI from a site online. It's works well when towing my 37' Columbus.

RE: Anyone with a Columbus 365RL

I would wait until you get your fiver and adjust the hitch so there's around 6" clearance above the bed to the trailer. The dealer would probably even help.

RE: opinion on 5th wheel brands

Where in North Carolina are you shopping for your Columbus? We bought our Columbus 320RS from Camper's Inn in Mocksville, NC. We did a lot of research and walked through many fivers before deciding on the Columbus. We have a very early production unit, but since we've got the bugs worked out, we've really enjoyed it. I like the 30" X 60" shower. The 6 sided welded aluminum frame. The 10 Gallon water heater. The 100" width. The comfortable Lane recliners.The closet in front is bigger than most of the other fivers we looked at. DW liked the fact that it comes with a microwave/convection as well as an oven. It meets and exceeds our needs. The new ones come with a smart TV. It also has a decent R rating. If I had to do it over, I would order the 7,000 axles and dual pane windows. Other than that, ours is loaded.

RE: Raleigh NC campgrounds

If you don't want anything fancy, check out 70 East Mobile & RV park in Garner. It's near the I-40 & US 70 interchange. Primarily a mobile home park with a bunch of RV sites. Click here: http://www.rvparkreviews.com/regions/North_Carolina/Garner.html
