RE: Diesel / Gas prices by you?

Hate to hi-jack, but this is related to diesel fuel....can you folks tell me what you are seeing as far as what percent of your fuel is Bio-diesel? I'm just curious what the percent of the blend is BD ranges. Our diesel is $3.80 - $3.90 in Southern MD

RE: Recommended RV CG between Buffalo NY & Coast (Ocean City)

Gary, Try Twin Grove c/g in Pine Grove, PA. It is near Harrisburg and will be close to half way. My wife and I are from the WNY area (south of Buffalo). We travel between southern MD and WNY frequently. Know the route very well. We have stayed at this c/g a few years ago...and really enjoyed it. Looks like it might be improved. Check it out. good luck, Mike

RE: Just an Idea!

In our case we opted for a MAXXFAN that works both ways. Our 5ver is wired and framed for the second a/c. In our case it would not have been too hard to mount the box to the frame, and then attach the ceiling fan to the box, just like the 6 ceiling fans in my house are attached to the ceiling J-box.

RE: rear axle weight

OP - I was starting to approach my GRAWR (about 200 under)and was over my ruck's GVWR. I went out and upgraded to wider tires going from 3042 to 3450lbs per LT tire. These wider tires required me to get wider wheels - which were also higher rated than the OEMs.....This is a lot cheaper than buying a new truck....it may not be ideal, but I feel a lot better - and yes, with those wider tires I can feel the difference. I also try to load heavy items to the back of the trailer - if possible. One side effect - my truck's speed odometer now is exactly in sync with my GPS....it was always off my 3MPH..... Good Luck.

RE: Rv trim

Scott, When my new Cedar Creek was missing a 2" piece of external trim, I called CC and they sent me a piece as big as I wanted...which was 6", at no charge. I suggest you call your manufacturer as ask the same as I did.

RE: Sanibel 3600 A/C Dometic thermostat E7 microwave not work

I bet you're about 10 lighter...and the heart rate is down to normal. Glad to hear it wasn't the 5ver...

RE: Brain Lapse!

We've been pulling our 5ver for just over 5 years....I have done a pull test EVERY time I hook up....we still follow a checklist....sure we know what we're doing...but, safety comes first. I use to use a lock on the pull bar...but don't anymore. If we stop, I check to make sure nobody has pulled it. I also have 2 of my bed rail pins locked...have heard of those getting pulled also. I do the light, break, blinker check every time also. I guess all of this caution comes from my job testing helicopters.

RE: Black Tank Valve

Is your RV's underbelly closed or exposed?

RE: How long can a 5th wheel sit?

When I park for the winter, I increase my 80 PSI tires to 83/84 PSI....which helps, and as we know, the tire air pressure will go down with the cold temps.

RE: Destination 36RL Trailer Life Review

The tailgate shortcoming IS a show stopper - period. AS far as E Tires, shows they are cutting corners to save a buck - just like most other manufacturers.

RE: Tire heating and cooling

My tires are usually about 10 deg higher than ambient...and yes, the sunny side will be a few more deg higher.

RE: Your Rig

How do you guys tow and maneuver with 2 pivot points? How do you make a left turn going down going through a town....those rigs have look longer than a 53' semi trailer.

RE: shopping, have questions

Anaro - We hauled a TT for 2 seasons, and then upgraded to the 5ver in signature.....on the way home from the dealer (100 mile trip), my first time hauling a 5ver, and going around the Wash DC beltway - all I could do was grin and giggle - I could not believe how much nicer it was to tow than my TT. I also no longer have greasy banged up shins....and that's really nice. Go for the 5th wheel. You can always have your co-pilot get out and check for branches...if you think they might be close....my DW has no problem doing that for us. Good Luck.

RE: In the bed harness connection

X2 - like George H's.....works fine for me, no problems reaching over the truck side wall, nor reaching in from the back...as I usually don't have the tailgate on.

RE: Wax over decals?

I use 303 Protectant on my decals, no wax. They look good after 5 years.

RE: ChinaBombs

I replaced my CBs with only 3,000 miles....I wanted to sleep well at night and not worry about a bad blow out....I have XPS RIBS. They look good after 4.5 years of use.

RE: forest river products

Bob, What kind of problems? I can not believe you got poor service from the CC service department.... Can you explain?

RE: forest river products

Being a fellow "Creeker", Cedar Creek Division of FR, I would totally agree with MPI_Mallard. They almost have it right. FR is a big corporation with many smaller "Divisions" that make the various RVs we love and hate...it's the customer service departments within these divisions that you should be talking to and this is probably whom folks could be bashing. Maybe the OP did take this route first, he didn't say. FR is not perfect, but you have to work from the bottom up...which could include the dealer. On the ridiculous side of things...why not give Warren Buffet a call and complain to him...that would be going to the top. To the OP, Good luck with your situation.
