RE: MORryde

Yep, I had the same thing done a few years ago, nothing but praises for MorRyde and the IS suspension

RE: My first rear kitchen - drawer and cabinet latches?

I have a rear kitchen and solved all issues with a MorRyde IS suspension, rides smooth and rarely anything moves.

RE: Depressed snowbird housing market - Yuma

Yep, your right, they had 20 good years and yes they took a major loss, my wife & I are in real estate so I am no dummy as to a buyer or sellers market and grandpa was just glad to have the years in Yuma? BUT still at the end of the day the depressed market bites into the future Money needed for future care of grandma. But they loved the years they had in Yuma.

Depressed snowbird housing market - Yuma

Well, my in laws just sold their snowbird home in Yuma at a major loss, lots of properties for sale there, it's definitely a buyers market. My in laws hated to sell but at the ages of 83 & 79 with one of them in the early stages of Dementia it was time. They had 20 Great Years going to Yuma every winter and made many friends. It's sad to see that the snowbird population is migrating a different direction. Their home was in the Foothills area. They started with a 36ft 5th wheel and ended with a double wide park model. Helping them get their place ready and listed was a very hard thing to do. You could see that they were very saddened to end this part of their life and move on to a new part of life with uncertainty of what's to come. They have a great family of children & grandchildren who love them and will give them the support they need, most of all they have God on their side as well. Please pray for them and pray for Grandma & strength for Grampa

RE: airbubble from toilet

mine did that once and my trusty RV repair told me that my vent cap was pushed down too low on vent pipe, Got on roof and pulled it up about a inch and it works great now.

RE: 5.9 Cummins Stumble

Good to hear, if mine starts to stumble again we'll check all the connections and hit them with WD40 too, But this time like I mentioned the dealer checked all electrical connections and Harnesses and the #3 still failed and then I took the injector to the diesel shop that actually installed it and they put it on their tester and the electrical solenoid was dead so it was actually the injector this time. Good travels to you

RE: 5.9 Cummins Stumble

OK, I have a 2006 5.9 and had the very same problems, No check engine light either, took it to dealer and they put in on the computer and discovered the #3 injector was misfiring (why no check engine is beyond me) dealers price for an injector was $702.00 just for the part so before I gave the dealer the go ahead I checked a local diesel/Turbo shop that has a great reputation so I took it to them and their computer showed the same thing. Their price was $350.00 for the very same injector that the dealer has (Bosch) so I bit the bullit and not only had that injector replaced but had them all replaced and new fuel tubes and had the valves adjusted too. Yes the bill was steep but after that it ran great. Then 16 months later the very same injector failed (this time it gave a check engine light), took it to the dealer and their computer verified that. I mentioned to the service manager that was the same injector that went bad the first time so he checked all electrical and harnesses and still the computer showed #3 failing, I had them pull the injector and I took it to the diesel shop that put it in 16 months earlier and they put it on their tester and found the electronic solenoid on top of the injector went bad so they gave me a new one at their cost since it was barley out of warranty and I took it back to dealer and they installed it and I am up and running. With all that said its probably a bad injector, don't waste money guessing and installing parts just let the dealer put it on their computer. But still not sure why the very same injector went out in 30 thousand miles after being replaced. Original lasted 140,000 miles. well we will just have to wait and see if it does it again. Good luck

RE: Air Ride Hitch and Trail-Air pin box

I have both, I have a trailersaver airhitch and a MoRyde Pin Box, rides and pulls great, Both do not fight each other. But if I had the Trailair pin box then Yes then its possible they could fight each other

RE: RV blinds

I had 3 blinds go bad, I removed them from the wall and found a sticker from a place in Goshen Indiana that was the original Mfg. looked up phone # and called them, Gave them the Numbers on the sticker and they sent me new ones. Originals were 7 yrs old so with the numbers they were able to match them. Not Very pricey either

RE: rear hitch for 5th wheel

You need to check what the total length of combined vehicles for Private vehicles, Too many people read the restrictions for length limits on commercial vehicles and think it pertains to their RV, it doesn't. Where I live legal length is 75 feet but that's for commercial trucks, the legal length limit for private vehicles in my state is 65 feet. I had the restrictions read to me by a state trooper right out of his vehicle code book. He told me people see commercial trucks pulling long loads and think the same laws apply to them but they don't. Ask a Trooper to check for you.

RE: firestone tires

OK, so I was wrong on the size, That's strange, the Transforce HT is not made in that size. LT236/85R16E would be the size and model name. Chris Yep that's the size, anyway, NO Problems with them.
