RE: 2016-17 Cedar Creek RE

I too am very much interested in making my NEXT CC the 34RE...although, I am hoping to get a few more years our of my 7 year old model, which has been great up until recently - but read the rest of the story.... First of all - check with the Cedar Creek RV Owners Club website...I think you can check it out with joining the club...you may not be able to post. You will find many folks that have owned more than 2 CCs. I can't imagine a manufacturer giving better service that CC. We just came back from the factory because we had a major weld failure in which our front cap ended up sitting on our Trailair kingpin for about 800 miles on our way home from Canada. Called CC customer service, spoke with Denise Davis - and everything was taken care of as it was a known problem with some wide bodies trailers, which ours is. They even came to MD to pick it up and take it back to Topeka, IN. They had LCI fix the welding, they replaced our damaged closet, gave us a new cap, and Trailair king pin hitch (didn't really need once). They did several other repairs and considered it all warranty work! They would have covered shipping it back, but wife & I wanted to visit the factory. They could have charged us for some of their fixes, but didn't. Denise and her crew were FANTASTIC and very professional. They had it for about 1 month, and she gave us weekly updates as to the progress. It's better than when it was new! We are Creekers for Life. Good luck with your decision...but I know what I'd suggest. Mike

RE: 2016 MS36RSSB3 purchase

Hey Jim - I've been following all this "retirement" talk that's been bantered.....I was planning on next July, but after reading the last half of this thread I may have to change it to Jan17..... What do you think of TJ's Campingworld? Would you buy from them again? Recommend them to your friends? PM me if you if you don't want to publicly state your true feelings. I previously told you about our CC Silverback's woes.....CC is moving a head with the repairs. LCI parts and welders arrive at their plant tomorrow to start the repairs. They told us it wasn't the worst failure they've seen, but it was very bad. Cedar Creek has been GREAT to us....maybe we'll have it back in less than a month. Good Luck Saturday - Enjoy every minute. Go Mountaineers!! Mike

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

Jim, It may not sound "manly", but those pics make me want to cry....I just kept saying, Oh my... You're are strong of character, if we weren't on the road in the opposite direction, I'd come and lend a hand. Keep the faith, brother. Mike

RE: 2011 Cedar Creek RE 5th Wheel Low Voltage Battery Issues

If you find out that you need to replace your converter, (you can take some measurements to see if it is putting out DC - which I did to confirm my OEM was shot) - Highly recommend the Progressive Dynamics version that comes with a charge wizard (I believe that is what its called). It plugs into the converter and there is a green LED that flashes (I ran mine into my fuse bank, which is located in the front of my main cabin, floor level under my entertainment center). Depending on the flash rate, I know what my converter is doing to the batteries. I love it. Good Luck.

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

OMG JIM! I am so sorry to hear about your misfortunes buddy. You know we are wishing you the best. There should be no way that they can try to salvage that with all the water damage....there will be mold. Since you have full coverage, and knowing what you know - try to enjoy picking out a new unit. You've been through a lot, you will get through this....nobody was lost. My friend, you are in my prayers that things will work out. I wish I could help you. GO Mountaineers. Mike

RE: little surprise every time we dump the tanks

I've used the twist on valve about 4 years because I had the same problem. It still works like a champ!

RE: old rig

Years ago, I traded in my Ford F-150 for a bigger GM truck. About 6 months after that I saw it one day at our local transfer station. I walked over to the owner and said, "that's my old truck". He asked me how I knew, and I showed him the one ding it had, in a very unusual place. I told him how I got it. He complemented me on how well I took care of it and the low mileage it had for its age (6 yrs). It was nice seeing it.

RE: Michelin XPS ribs on fiver and truck?

XPS Ribs do not come in "G"s. They are E rated and I love them on my signature 5ver. My local tire guy told me I would never wear them out, that they would rot first. This upcoming fall makes them 7 years old, and have no cracks and plenty of tread. I do cover them and use 303 UV protectant on them. This will probably be my last year before buying another set, but some say the have a 10 year lifespan. They have over 20K miles on them. When they were installed they were only 4 months old based on the DOT date. I have Michelin LTX MS/2s on my truck, E rated, 265s R16s. I love them, they seem to be wearing OK. They are wider than the OEM 245s I had on there and I can tell the difference. Hope this helps. Mike

RE: Auxiliary Fuel Tank options

I replaced my 26 gal OEM tank with a Titan 52 gal tank.....I like that I doubled my range. As far as the gas gauge goes, since I doubled the tank size it's easy to do the math...I didn't have the computer reprogrammed.

RE: Polish front nose cap?

I'm sure most folks will be shaking their heads, I wax my front cap after each trip out and sometimes in between. I can't stand it being dirty or having black streaks....and No, I am not retired, but getting pretty close. I do all my waxing by hand and the whole rig gets waxed twice a year...and I'm beat when I finish.

RE: generator needed but what size and kind

If you're going the route of 2 generators using the parallel wiring kit....I strongly suggest a pair of Yamahas....CW is always pushing red over blue. Blue has a few features that red doesn't....last time I checked. Do some homework. Yes, I have a Yamaha and love it. Good Luck.

RE: Which LT tires have you been happy with?

Michelin XPS RIBS on 5ver and LTX M/S2 on the TV. All my vehicles run Michelin's...

RE: Best years for used Duramax?

I Love my 2008 LMM, we bought it new. I have added bigger wheels and tires, replaced the original fuel tank with a 52 gal titan, and added a VVT brake.....it has 34,000 miles on it, barely broken in!! Yep, it sits garaged, and I only use it to tow my 5ver. I hope it lasts another 8 years...I just replaced both original batteries. With diesel fuel very reasonable, I'm thinking of parking my MDX, which uses premium, and making it my daily vehicle.
