RE: Help please! I'm locked out

The recall is for both key cylinders. I just replaced both of mine today with new ones sent by Fastec. Fastec RV door lock cylinder recall

RE: palamino columbus question?

I have a Columbus 320RS. We've had it for over 2 years as it is an early production. After a few initial bugs were worked out, we love it. It is Palomino's high line. It has numerous standard features that we really like. 100" wide; 6 sided welded frame (no wood trusses in the roof), microwave/convection oven AND a gas oven; HUGE shower (30"x 60"); LED lighting; great entertainment center; comfortable theater seating; lots of cabinet space; etc. It tows great with the Equa Flex suspension and Roto Flex hitch pin. We looked at some Jayco fivers, but the Columbus offered more bang for the buck, and our Jayco dealer is terrible. It's a beautiful rig and we really enjoy it.

RE: Tires

My vote goes to the Maxxis. I love mine. Mine, too! Be sure to get them balanced.

RE: TowMax Tires

As mentioned already, wise decision with the Maxxis. Be sure to have them balanced.

RE: A/C filters falling down, falling down, falling down...

I had to replace the filter cover (grill) on my front AC as the tabs used to secure it were either weak or broken. The new one works fine. Found it at CW.

RE: Generators for 5th wheel power

I have a Champion 3500/4000 genny that will run my 15K A/C. It's not Honda or Yamaha quiet, but for the price and durability, it works for me. We don't run it at camp grounds, but rest stops, Wal Marts, & truck stops are fine.

RE: Towing in the mountains with a gasser????

Don't worry about revving your 5.7 at 4500 RPM. That engine can handle the higher RPM as it is designed to do just that. It's redlined at 6000 RPM.

RE: Willow Tree Route

You're good. US 74 at Lumberton, then once on 410, we pick up US 701 to SC 9 East to Willow Tree. Awesome CG, have fun!

RE: tires ain't pretty

I had Maxxis on my Jayco TT with no problems. That's one reason I recently installed a set of Maxxis M8008 ST235/80R16 tires on my Columbus, replacing the OEM Akuret china bombs. I balanced them, too. When I compare tire to tire, the Maxxis had a much firmer sidewall and weighed more than the Akuret tires. Very happy with the Maxxis.

RE: Trailer tire ratings?

A viable option for tire replacement is Maxxis M8008 ST tires. They are NOT Chinese made and highly rated. They are a quality tire and they are much cheaper than LT tires, if cost is a factor, as it was for me. http://www.maxxis.com/tires/autolt/trailer

RE: Hi run tires

Buy the Hi Run but when you get back home, replace them all with Maxxis and use the Hi Run for a spare. I am very happy with my Maxxis ST tires, especially when they were half as much as an LT tire. Cost is a factor for many people.

But he drives a Prevost AND a Beemer, he's allowed to drive anyway he wants; just ask him.

Anyone place a smoke detector in the basement?

Saw it on a Facebook site. Makes sense especially with all the electronics down there. I bought one today at Lowe's and will be installing it in the basement of my Columbus this weekend. Might be a good idea, eh?

RE: Akuret failure avoided

I recently experienced a near failure of an Akuret tire on my Columbus. Luckily, a North Carolina Trooper pulled me over when he saw it. Saved me a lot of damage. http://i1158.photobucket.com/albums/p618/amxpress/akurettire_zps0135f2af.jpg A week later I installed a set of Maxxis M8008 ST tires. What a difference. The Maxxis sidewalls are thicker and don't flex near as much as the Akuret tires. My Maxxis were made in Thailand the 6th week of 2014. Be sure to have your new tires balanced. Good luck.

RE: Charlotte NC area campgrounds

We've stayed at the Charlotte/Fort Mill KOA just South of Charlotte.It was clean with shade. The nice thing was the "cocktail lounge" located in the office. You can have a few drinks/food and walk back to your site. The pool was OK,too. DW did an IKEA visit so I hung out at the CG. There's a CG next to the speedway, but it's nothing but a large gravel parking lot with no shade.

RE: Toyota Tacoma- Genuine Stories

I had a 2007 PreRunner with the tow package. I towed a 24' Jayco 213EXP with a GVWR of 5500#, though it was actually was never over 4800#. It had the power to tow it, but I knew it was back there. I kept it out of O/D unless it was a flat road. The 4 Liter V-6 loved to rev when it had to, but never head a problem with it. I had an Equal-i-zer hitch which really helped. I traded it for my RAM 2500 CTD when we ordered our 5th wheel. Even when towing the Jayco with my RAM, it was like towing a gigantic bread box and my MPG sucked. If I had my choice of a TT, I'd get an Airstream because of the aerodynamics. A properly equipped Tacoma wouldn't have a problem towing the right one.

RE: Suggested Rear Ratio?

As mentioned, the 3.73 is overall a good rear end for your truck. That's what's in my 2500. The Aisin transmission is a heavier duty trans compared to the 68RFE. I haven't had a problem with my 68RFE, just changed the fluid at 50K.

RE: Tire help

I recently installed a set of Maxxis M8008 ST235/80R16 tires. I compared them to the OEM China bombs they replaced. Their sidewalls were thicker and had less flex and they were heavier. I really like them. There will be a number of responses suggesting the LT tires you mentioned. To each their own. They are much more expensive and are not limited to 65 mph. The tire store I bought my Maxxis will not install LT tires on a trailer unless they came in it originally. Silly, eh? BTW, be sure your new tires are balanced.

RE: Finally going camping this weekend!

Fancy Gap is one of our favorite CGs. Hope you have a great weekend.
