RE: wind speeds

Just watch and see what the semi drivers are doing...if they are pulled over you might want to do the same....they are the pros.

RE: Tire pressure monitor

I have the TST 510s, the kind in which I can NOT replace the battery, so I have to send them back to get replacements - which now cost $30/per. I have had to replace several and am honestly getting tired of paying for new ones. So, when I had then on current trailer with a 2500 short bed truck, I had NO problems with signal loss....now with my new long bed dually (same trailer), I am having serious signal drop outs....I have not tried using the antenna that came with them, but will try placing them higher in the truck...maybe mounting in the overhead. If that doesn't work I will try the antenna.

RE: Electrical issues

I agree with ScottG - the dimming (pulsing)of lights was the sign when our WFCO converter died. On mine, it was pretty obvious after I took some measurements. I love my PD with the charge wizard. Good Luck.

RE: Cedar creek quality?

...getting back on topic....our signature Silverback is in great shape today and we plan on buying another in the next year or 2. The wide bodied units had a design flaw which led to structural damage in the front. Lippert fixed it at no cost, and then the folks at Cedar Creek fixed the internal damage at NO costs to us....it's better now than when it was new. They also threw in a few other freebies including a new trailair hitch, stairs, and replaced all my slide seals...oh, shipping to the factory was free....we opted to go pick it up to see the factory....and meet Denise Davis and her crew!

RE: bridgestone or michelin

XPS Ribs.....if you're after a E-rated tire....mine are 8 years old and going strong, show no sign of wear. I regularly apply 303 UV protectant and they are covered all the time when not in use. My tire guy said I could get 10 years out of them....I will probably replace them over the winter.

RE: Do I have a problem

My Cedar Creek had a structural problem much worse than yours....Denise and her crew at the factory fixed it (and repaired a lot of other inside damage) for free! Your problem will more than likely get worse...ours got progressively worse over 3 years until things completely failed and all the caulk in the world wouldn't have fixed it. Looking at our next CC. Good Luck, Mike

RE: 5th Wheel roadside service insurance offerings

GS Roadside Emergency Service is 0 for 2 with us....when we needed them most, they let us down and the call person was so unfamiliar with what a 5th wheel was. We are NOT renewing.....

RE: New Rv add ons

I also added the extra drain gate valve next to the cap....small investment, big difference as we always have a small amount of liquids after traveling. Also agree with slide toppers, love our trail air pin. I also added that little fan inside the fridge to circulate the air (keeps things colder). I added insulation to the ceiling in my basement, replaced OEM shackles with stronger ones with zerks. IMO, LT tires instead of the ST tires that came from the manufacturer. Next rig will have auto-leveling. Agree with several things previously mentioned.

RE: My first experiance using Coachnet

In our 10 years of RVing, we have needed Good Sam's emergency roadside service twice....they are 0 -2 and were nothing but a headache. This last summer, we called as our landing gear broke a shear pin...and we could not leave the camp ground. By the time the GS rep found us a rep, we had the local c/g mobile guy deep into the problem. The tech GS found was about 1.5 hrs away and was charging for mileage Plus a service call and then his time, and couldn't get there til late afternoon - Which we were fixed good enough to travel and on the road before he could have arrived. The first time we were stranded the story was nearly the same. GS offered us a free year of service when I complained....we are done with GS roadside service....and will take our chances. Agree, it's priceless when somebody doesn't show.

RE: Your Rig

Congratulations. She looks in great shape. Have fun! Thanks for sharing pictures.

RE: 17 gmc 3500

Paul C has said it perfectly....it's all relative. Yes, I knew the trailer was there, but compared to my 2500 SRW...it was so much smoother, the truck wasn't being pushed by the trailer....Give me a break.

RE: 17 gmc 3500

I have had my 2017 GMC 3500 DRW Diesel Denali for 1 week, and just towed my 5ver for the first time....WOW what a huge difference from my 2008 GMC 2500 Diesel, which was a great truck with no issues. It was like the trailer wasn't even there...we notice how smooth the ride was, and how much less the truck bounced around from the weight of the trailer. WE won't even mention all the bells & Whistles this truck has that my old one didn't. However, there are a few downers....the 2017 only has a 36 Gal fuel tank, as my 2008 had a 52 Gal tank (I replaced the OEM tank)...this truck is also harder to fit into my garage as my old truck was a short bed, SRW....but I can live with backing in very slowly. Lastly, DRW trucks don't come with internal tire temp/psi sensors. We hope to have this truck for a very long time!

RE: Cardinal 5ers

I currently own a 2009 CC Silverback, we are looking to replace, although it is better than new thanks to the folks at CC...and it didn't cost us a cent!! We have looked at several new Cardinals, and several new CCs - both are nice and I would call it a tie...so the tie breaker for us is the treatment we received at the CC factory by Denise Davis and her crew. I also note that.. I see way more CC at c/gs than I do Cardinals - and we are on the lookout for both. There is NO way the Cardinal factory can beat the folks at CC, IMO... Our next 5ver will be a upgraded Cedar Creek....although a TV upgrade will be required first.

RE: Residential Refrigerator Problem

I agree with jerseyjim, our next 5ver will still have the gas/propane option. My wife, even agrees....don't want to worry about an inverter, and don't want to worry about the need for extra batteries to keep the fridge going on long hauls or situations in which we might be off the grid. The gas/propane gives you2 ways to run the fridge, an electric residential only has one way. Sometimes, old products are better...

RE: Happy Memorial Day

X2 - treeofliberty! I fly a "special" American Flag on Memorial Day, Veterans Day and 4th of July..it was flown for 1 minute over the USS Arizona at 1706 on July 4th, 2004. I was flight testing with 3 Marine Corps Helicopter Squadrons in K-Bay at the time.

RE: Happy Memorial Day

I think that those of us that have served (USN) look at Memorial Day just a little bit different than those that haven't. I'll NEVER forget!

RE: We crossed the Canadian border Wed. 24 May

On our crossing in Maine to NB, we spent about 2 minutes with the inspector, and on the way back into Maine about another 2 minutes. Couldn't have been easier. We also read the rules prior to our trip....and that included traveling with a dog.

RE: tires

I didn't see the weight of your rig....but if you can afford them, and are within the "E" tire capacity then Michelin XPS RIBS....you won't have a tire worry for many years.

RE: 2017 MOBILE SUITES QC issues

I wondered if the quality would go down hill once they were bought out.....I'm thinking it was Thor, I'm sure somebody will correct me if needed.
