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.

RE: Cost cutting at Cedar Creek?

We've never used the water filter that came with ours....we usually bring our own water to drink and cook with. I'd bet CC isn't the only guys cheapening their products.

RE: Flagpole suggestions

Totally agree with Dick_B - my flag pole holder is mounted to my TrailAir pin box. The PVC pole is about 3 ft high, and angles about 60 degrees, allowing the flag to freely wave. The cast mount is the kind you would install (using screws) into your house or a pillar.
