TX RV and trailer owners are in trouble.

Read that Tx has a law that all trailers over 4500 lbs must be inspected. Starting this month and after, you have to show proof to get the new tags. Just one more deal to get your cash. Tx trailers have to be inspected. Figure all states will follow soon. Way too much cash there passing up to not grab it. Pete

RE: Bleeding Propane from lg tank to small tanks??

Check out Ebay for this ((LIQUID PROPANE TRANSFER KIT SYSTEM COUPLER TANK GRILL BBQ FILLER FILL UNLOADING)) http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/NzI2WDE2MDA=/z/ZUAAAOSwGzlTtFKy/$_57.JPG height=240 width=240 Pull all the gas out with this. Then keep it for later, or resell it. I know before long we will be getting a kit like this. And put it on our 300 gallon tank or the 500 gallon tank. As our company uses propane. To run our Furnace on a machine. And will be filling up my 40 lb tanks out of it also. PLus next forklift will run off propane also. Paid $25 for a 40 lb bottle last week.

RE: Metal carport for 5th wheel questions

Most lumber will be rough cut, as theres 7 Amish mills here now. We have had hundreds move in our section of Tn within the last 3 years. I agree its a nice price and they put one this size up in 2.5 days. Pete Forgot the 6x6x20ft will be treated lumber. Poured in Concrete and sitting on a gravel bed for drainage. Pete Was that price installed as well? Sorry for not seeing this before. Health issues did not let me get the pole barn up last fall. Not sure if that was with labor. But even if its not, still a great price. And figure there labor will be around $1000. With the $$. Bonus last week, will get it enclosed and wired.

RE: Cost to setup Truck

I cheated did not get rid of my 19.5 wheels and tires in case I go back to a T/C. But loving the Chevy Kodiak C5500 so if I do go back with a T/C it will be the Big triple slide and mount it on back of the Kodiak. Pete

RE: Looking for Tire Advice.

I have Toyo's on the 19.5's that was on my truck with my truck camper. They cost me $1300. 4 225/70R 19's tires mounted and balanced 3 years ago. Put new steer tires on my C5500 Kodiak. And found nice looking tires for $135. delivered to my door. Have over 5000 miles and like them better than the Toyo's. There Gladiator QR55ST I have the 225/70R 19.5's. At the price these were, I can run a few sets for the prices of Higher end tires. Buddy of mine has these same tires on his Class A motor home. And there holding up good. He ran up on over a dozen people that had been running them last winter in Fl. And a Guy I know has been running these in 22.5's on a fleet of trucks and trailers. His results are great and even out lasting some of the $400. each tires and he gets a big Discount as they buy a 40ft container full at a time.

RE: Independent Suspensioin vs. Air Hitch

our Heartland Landmark has the Mor/Ryde pin box. And with a normal hitch stuff was over the camper while traveling. After getting a Trailer Saver TS3 stuff does not move on the same roads these days. After moving up to the Kodiak c5500 only pulled the camper one time with the B&W companion hitch that was on it. And mounted the TS3 and will never tow again without the air ride hitch. Pete

RE: Trailer Saver TS3 info wanted

Directions that came with your rail kit will tell you where to set the rails. Then just set the hitch down on the rails. pete

RE: Full body paint....worth it?

I think if your going to be in the sun a lot and keep it a long time then it's well worth it. In fact I wont buy our next RV (fiver) without it because we'll be traveling throughout the sun belt . However, if your the type that trades in every five years then I'd skip it. Agree X12

RE: 5th wheel Truck combo = terrible ride

Did not read past the second page. But try filling the fresh water tank. Then try it and see if that does not smooth the ride out? Being a rear kitchen I bet you will find with a little more weight on the front will make it ride smooth. On my old truck 2004.5 crew cab 4x4 short bed with our Heartland Landmark Key Largo. I had the same issue, then added fresh water and it took care of it. Then when I went to the Trailer Saver Air ride hitch. That took care of it for sure. But when I went to the Kodiak c5500 it now is not an issue at all. Pete

RE: Budget fiver for snow birding

Look around we found our 2012 Heartland Land Mark Key Largo for $56,000. It had been used 2 trips. And was loaded, as in full body paint, Washer/Dryer, Auto Sat dish, GEnerator, 4 door fridge, outdoor TV, you name it this unit had it on there. We had plans of buying a new unit the next week or should I say ordering one. And it was 12,000. more than this used one. But without the Full Body paint job, Gen, Washer dryer and Auto Sat dish. Theres great deals out there and your in the right spot and time of year to find them. Also ours was 5 months old when we bought it. Pete

RE: Which balance beads where to get installed near Houston, TX

I use the Premium airsoft beads. Been using them for around 5 years. Before that used the powder from Rickson tires.

RE: Not a VW Beetle this time

Should have dual wheels for sure on both ends. Burger and drink will overload it LOL HAHA

RE: Question for Hensley hitch owners

Mine also has no issue. But if you just sit the hitch down on the rails without going by the Manual it could happen. As in put the hitch in the rails without the legs on the hitch being tightened down. Then after hitch is on the rails Torque the bolts down? Pete

RE: Metal carport for 5th wheel questions

I was looking at those, but for the same $$ will be putting up a 24 wide x 50ft long 16ft high Pole barn. That way I can park the 41ft 5th wheel in with all sides out. And still park my truck and boat along side it. Also putting in full hookup's inside and outside along with Extra lights inside as it will be fully inclosed. Man wish when I put the metal building up for the Truck camper. That I had built it 50ft long . But its 35ft wide and 30ft deep. So just turning it into a shop. WOW...building costs must be WAY cheaper up there. Cheapest pole barn quote and it was a 16'X40'X12 was over $4000 20X36'X12' metal carport is less than $3000 installed Price my Neighbor Quoted me (Amish building maker) was $3. Sq ft so $3600. for the pole barn 16ft tall x 24 wide x 50ft long. Now this is open no sides. As Our plans are to inclose it next fall. And add full hook ups inside and outside also. Never know when someone may need to stay for a week or so. Pete

RE: Heading south the middle of the winter from upstate NY

Used to make that trip every week for a few years. Now back in the mid 80's, good weather forecast was not going to happen. Now days like was posted, find your window and go forth heading south. If you do find bad weather is catching up with you. Find a save spot to camp or sit for a day or so. Then leave out again when weather permits. Its nice on the Gulf Coast right now. Widows are open and fantastic fan is on. High may only be 65 but feels great. Pete

RE: Tree Damage to unit - structural issues???

And if they were to repair it. Make sure all repairs make you happy, and done right before taking the unit back. Pete

RE: Outdoor Televisions

Ours has a 32" LCD built into the slide. Flip up a door and the TV along with speaker and stereo is there. Love it and would hate to do without it again. http://www.noblerv.com/console/watermark_large.php?src=63357 Pete
