RE: Cedar Creek & Silverback

I like our Silverback's basement situation better than the Cedar Creek line. We have 2 levels, which provides more horizontal storage. some of that is taken up by the spare tire...which if every needed is easier to get out than cranking down the tire which is mounted under the unit on the CCs. Our 2009 also has real blinds, which we like. Our unit has been pretty good for us.

RE: Purchasing a Silverback by Cedar Creek

X3 on the Welcome to the "Creeker" Club. We love our 2009 Silverback - very minimal issues. The CC customer service folks are great! I hope you enjoy your toy!

RE: Ordered 5th wheel delima

WAIT, WAIT - that way you won't get a rig that the workers were distracted, and took short cuts because they were rushing to finish before the shutdown...and yes, you'll get what you wanted. The extra wait will make the anticipation even greater! LOL Enjoy, Mike

RE: cedar creek 38 RD

I believe the FROG rally has a registration fee of $400. I plan on going in 2015. WE LOVE our 2009 CC Silverback. CC Customer service is the best!

RE: Sad day to winterize and put away for winter...

We are winterizing tomorrow - it's terribly sad. OP - nice storage "shed". Wish I had one of those. I have the room, but I'd have to cut down a lot of trees...the landscaping required might cost more than the building...

BigD2 - I have a 2009 Silverback, GenII....so it may not be the same as yours...but my converter is located under the bathroom, in my basement....but its accessible from my basement - on the back basement wall, there is an access door - which exposes my converter, and hot water tank, piping, etc. I just had to replace mine - with a PD9200. The converter is secured to the floor with some wiring going to the back of the fuse panel - which the front is accessed from our main floor - Its on the wall below our entertainment center - which on the other side of the entertainment center is the bathroom. You have to be smaller is size to work on...which is why I coached my wife - and told her what to do - I'm 6'3" and about 280 - too cramped for me. Good Luck - Mike

RE: Mobile Suite purchase price help needed

...and when you have it checked over, make sure you hook up water, and then run open sinks, fill up hot water tank and see that it heats, check holding tank valves by draining them - make sure all lights work, refrigerator works, slides, stabilizers, landing gear - even TV and outlets. You may even want to hook it up and tow it a few miles checking breaks and lights. Don't forget the propane system. Take your time going through this, don't be rushed. Even being a good price the unit is 9 years old. good luck

RE: Locked inside by entry assist handle

I'll wake up to a cricket farting......very light sleeper. I also have multiple extinguishers and extra fire detectors - using both technologies of detection.

RE: Things to get included in a sale

Agree that nothing is free...agree with Donn0128 - NO China Bomb ST tires....get good LT tires - even if you have to pay something for them...as I doubt they will give them to you free. Good Luck

RE: Infared Heat Power Draw

That is correct Super Dave....and the ones I have used did have a separate 110v GFI...so I was protected.

RE: Infared Heat Power Draw

I installed an external 110v input at the rear of my trailer, next to the 50 amp inlet. We then plug into the pedistal's 110V outlet (if there is one available)with a heavy duty extension cord. The inside outlet is totally separate from the trailer's circuitry. We run a 1500W heater in our main area....heat works it's way into the bedroom. We didn't use our propane heater last outing, but lows only got down into high 40's. Trailer temp was 75deg throughout the night. DW also plugged her hair dryer into this outlet in the morning, worked great. Good Luck, Mike

RE: Last bacon and eggs of the season

Our last trip, will be 2nd week of November....so we still have something to look forward to before that "sad day" comes.

RE: Locked inside by entry assist handle

Most of you are missing another aspect of this...thieves HAVE used this technique to lock folks in and then steal stuff out of the basement....and even with a cell phone, they will be gone before anybody can show up...and when you are sleeping you may not even know it. I will take a picture of something I did to prevent this...not sure if I will be able to post it. It consists of a small piece of metal, about 1.5" vertically screwed (2 caulk sealed screws) into the black mount. The handle can not be put into that position with the handle against the door, because the metal blocks off that position. An easy project providing some insurance. People are crazy....thieves, or kids playing pranks.

RE: Storage - Slides out?

Make it 3 in row.....You are only asking for unnecessary wear from the weather.

RE: Landmark 365

The way I read it, is that he is unhappy with his 2013 Landmark - since he will be trading it in 2 years or less. If he was happy, why would he be trading it in so soon? To the OP, if you don't tell us your point, or question, you leave it up to all of us to guess. Good Luck, I think?

RE: favorite feature

I like the fact that it's been paid for several years now! LOL....seriously, we like the openness if the floor plan, so we have room to play with the dog...and the fact that almost every seat allows us to look at the TV straight on.

RE: Very frustrating situation, going to blow some steam!

I totally second what MPI_Mallard said. We also know a lot of CC owners that can't say enough great things about CC customer service. The little we have needed them, they have been top notch. Several of our fellow CCRVOC members are on their 2nd, 3rd or 4th CC. I'm sorry you are having such bad luck. Our 2009 Silverback G2 has been excellent for us. For all you've invested, you should find a good local welding shop and fix it locally. I agree, with MPI - are you sure you're dealing with the CC customer service dept.? Good Luck.

Mine come off at the end of the season, which is early Nov. Go back on for that first trip of the new season.

RE: Nuts & Bolts

To the OP - You have seen a lot of great replies to the great questions you wanted opinions on.....what I haven't seen, and you haven't stated - is money no object? What is your budget, which may dictate a lot of your choices. Did I miss your mention of the budget?

RE: I am wanting a little persuasion

Keep that Citation and over the next 3 years be disciplined, and start a savings account for the next unit. Save what you can each month and then after 3 years you will have something - and the pain of paying may not be so bad. Good Luck
