RE: Grand Design vs Montana

We have friends in our local RV Club that HAD a Montana Front Living model and after a year they got rid of it. We also had a friend with one of the bigger Solitude models and she loved it! We was full timing in it. To the OP, Good Luck with your decision. We are expecting to pick up our 2019 Cedar Creek Hathaway Edition, with several bells & Whistles, in about 3 weeks.

RE: Slide Toppers

Our 2009 CC Silverback came with Slide toppers. We just ordered our 2019 Cedar Creek WITH Slide toppers.....would never have a rig without them. Ours have held up real well, we keep them clean....very rarely have they flopped in the wind....and yes, you learn where to stand when they come in. ...and yes, I have stood under them with a long brush brushing WET pine needless off as they wound up. Good Luck, Mike

RE: Tomorrow is the day.

Congrats Grizz272....we are in the same boat, so to speak...my signature TV has 1180 miles, and we just ordered a 2019 Cedar Creek 5ver to replace our 2009. We had to tell the dealer to hold off on placing the order until the next production run happens, as we can not drive the 800 miles to pick it up until late June. I think we will have to take most of our equipment with us to swap into new rig, because we plan on other stops on the way home. Can't wait for June to get here.

RE: deezee aux fuel tank

My inline filter sits under a cover on top of the tank, next to the pump....very easy to change. Thanks for bringing that issue up. Mike

RE: deezee aux fuel tank

Good point about having an inline filter for the aux tank....creates double filtration because we still have the truck's own filter system. I gotta check my Titan system. Mike

RE: Looking at first Fifth Wheel

We just ordered a 2019 38' Cedar Creek, even though we liked the 41' version slightly more (layouts are nearly identical). We were concerned with that extra 3 feet when getting into and around places....including parking in our driveway. The 38' is almost 4' longer than our current 5ver....so we are going reasonably longer in the first place. We've been to a few c/g spots that 38' would have been a problem, not to say the c/g didn't have a longer spot available.

RE: Sanibel 3800 comparison

x2 - with a high end used model.....Excel was an excellent high end 5ver, although Petersen Industries is no longer are around. It's kind of depressing when you can't find the quality that you'd expect when paying big $$.

RE: Things I don't see anymore?

A buddy of mine had an airfoil on his 3500....but took it off when he traded up to a class A. We just ordered a new 2019 5ver and made sure to get slide toppers....wouldn't own one without them. Noticed in the brochure that it will no longer have scare lights, as our 2009 has....which only got used once in awhile. We asked that it NOT come with the new MorRyde 1 piece folding stairs, we still asked that it come with the old style 4 step folding stairs. We know folks that have already gone back to the older style.

RE: What I did these past 2 days

Very Impressive!! Take this as sarcasm....I wanted to do all that to our 2009, instead, we ordered a 2019....delayed delivery until June do to work schedule and the drive to pick it up....these will be long and slow upcoming months....now, we have to be careful with our trade-in....LOL

RE: Sanibel 3800 comparison

Not sure what you want to spend....if DRV $$ didn't bother you, look into New Horizons.....you can customize it. Good Luck.

RE: Sanibel 3800 comparison

The Prime Time (Sanibel) web page doesn't define what the extreme thermal package consists of.... From what was available, the CC appears to have higher R values and BO Plenty's 36CKTS may have thermal window panes. I didn't compare the DRV specs, maybe BO Plenty did. Lastly, not everybody can afford a DRV...or want to...for all they cost, they have their share of problems too.

RE: deezee aux fuel tank

I just had my Titan 40 Gal auxiliary tank installed yesterday (3/29). After some initial problems, in which the installer and I believe the system had to prime (the pump kept kicking off as I tried to transfer fuel about 8 times) itself. Once primed the system worked great - I had no codes kicked by the DIC on my 2017 GMC 3500....and the fuel gauge slowly moved up while I was driving. The system is designed to pump 5 gal and the shut off, and will restart when I hit the power button again....I can manually operate the system as well.

RE: Question 4 those with Auto Leveling System

Thanks for answering this....I think dpgllg said it best in that I will have to see how my unit behaves. It sounds like I could expect the full gambit of scenarios. Thanks, you folks did help.

Question 4 those with Auto Leveling System

Folks, We are purchasing a new 5ver that has 6 point auto-leveling system. When this system is deployed how stable is the trailer? Is most of the shaking (in all directions) taken out? Would I still need something like JT strong arms or something similar? Thanks, Mike

RE: Trailer Fire

OMG - I know Randy & Nancy (camped many times with them)and was totally unaware of this terrible accident. If anybody can pull through this it's Randy....he's an incredibly smart guy....his HDT is awesome. I'm glad they are OK. Mike

RE: auxiliary fuel tank

I replaced my 26 gal OEM tank with a 52 gal Titan tank on my 2008 GMC 2500...well, my new 2017 GMC DRW has only a 36 gal tank....I'm looking to add an aux tank. I can not decided between the RDS gravity fed 60 Gal tank and a titan 50 Gal tank with pump. It seems simple installation might be easier than the more complex titan install. Any suggestions/recommendations? Does the 2017 GMC 3500 OEM tank have the open vent that could overflow? Thanks, Mike

RE: Opinion on fridge option

I've enjoyed reading all the responses....we are looking to upgrade our current 5ver....and have decided we want the gas/propane version - even if Cedar Creek treats the residential fridge as the "normal" unit....all of the pros for the residential unit have NOT changed our minds.... Great discussion. Mike

RE: Reflection 320mks on order....anyone have one?

I also would have had the same questions/comments as W & W....the OPs questions did make it sound like they hadn't been inside one.

Our annual registration in Maryland cost us $248.

RE: Wash and wax

I wash one day and wax (by hand with 8' step ladder) the next day....once in a while I will do both on the same day. My wonderful wife sometimes helps. I wash the front cap after each trip as it helps remove bugs. I will sometimes wax the front cap in between trips as I hate seeing black steaks. Wife washes roof maybe twice year....it sits near very tall trees. It is a pain!
