RE: Outdoor dog kennel

I have been in a lot of Campgrounds that do not allow dog pens of any kind. Or dogs outside unless with the owner. Way too many people leaving dogs out while leaving for hours. Then the dogs start barking and then the issues pop up. I know its not the dogs fault but the owners that don't care. Pete

Christmas on the Gulf Coast?

Wife and I plan on spending a week during Christmas on the Gulf Coast this dec. Plans are to drive down Monday 5.5 hours there. And come back home the following Sunday or Monday. See what we can see and do as little as we can. Looking for a place to stay with our 40ft Heartland Landmark Key Largo and Kodak c5500 truck. Don't need resort just a nice campground that is near the fun. But for me noise free as can be. Plus Quite and peace is what were looking for. Plus ideals of what do do and stuff would help out also. Told the kids today that we will be having our Christmas dinner the saturday before. And leaving for a week.;):B Pete

RE: Towing Doubles

Been told many times you can't do it. But after calling each state. Was old it can and it done each day. Not an issue, so hitch will be mounted on ours and towing the boat until I'm stopped. I meet in Al on average 50 per trip across Hwy 72 from Ms state line to I-24 in east tn. Seen them meet Troopers and they never slowed down to look at them. Same in Ga. Pete

RE: Heartland manufacturer

Not any issues with ours. And I for one will never be forced into buying anything. Plus if you were upside down on the last one. That means your lost on this one. Also did they discount the price for the issues? If not I would not have taken it. If they did Discount it then you have nothing to cry about. Sounds like it was the dealer and not Heartland to me.

RE: Lube Disk for 5th Wheeel Hitch.

Had to use grease yesterday. This B&W hitch flips forward and crushed mine. Picked one up the RV place today $12.00 out the door. And worth way more. Pete

RE: Photo paint job on a truck?

Showed my wife and she thought it was someone else's truck and camper but then she told me that looks like ours.:S Thanks so much for doing this. Let me know if i owe you a 6 pack or case. Pete Wasn't a problem, glad I can help. Again thanks and this is what it looks like now after a few days work. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v693/ShilohRed/2005%20Kodiak%20c5500%20Cummins%20powered/5500-02-1.jpg Wife found this one on her way to Ky for work. And we looked at it a week ago Saturday. And bought it. 2005 Cummins powered Allison 6 speed trans I love it. And hate to put the old F800 up for sale. But its life.

Not the same camper. But love the auto system on my Heartland Key Largo. And will never own a unit without it again. Pete

RE: Picked up a different truck this week.

If one of the mods could resize the pics I would be grateful. Just seen there bigger then fits the screen. And for the life of me I can't remember how to make them smaller. IT came out with a duramax/Allison but it lost a poston so it was given life with a cummins matched to the Allison. And I think was the first to do it. http://i562.photobucket.com/albums/ss65/MSanford0926/Cummins%20powered%20Kodiak/DSCN0391.jpg http://i562.photobucket.com/albums/ss65/MSanford0926/Cummins%20powered%20Kodiak/DSCN0390.jpg Will get some more inside pics tomorrow.

Picked up a different truck this week.

Found what I have always thought would be the ideal Rv hauler. 2005 Chevy Kodiak c5500 http://i562.photobucket.com/albums/ss65/MSanford0926/Cummins%20powered%20Kodiak/DSCN0388.jpg But its not stock, still has the Allison Trans. But the duramax fell out somewhere and a Cummins jumped into the truck. http://i562.photobucket.com/albums/ss65/MSanford0926/Cummins%20powered%20Kodiak/DSCN0400.jpg http://i562.photobucket.com/albums/ss65/MSanford0926/Cummins%20powered%20Kodiak/DSCN0399.jpg http://i562.photobucket.com/albums/ss65/MSanford0926/Cummins%20powered%20Kodiak/DSCN0398.jpg http://i562.photobucket.com/albums/ss65/MSanford0926/Cummins%20powered%20Kodiak/DSCN0387.jpg Gets better MPG then the duramax, and man does it pull. Has a 5.9 24 valve diesel pusher motor in it. With a 75 HP tuner helping it out. Rides better then my 2500HD and cuts shorter then it does. Plus has air ride seats. 150 gallon fuel on board so can pick where I fuel up and get the best price. Rather than buy when I have to and pay way more per gallon. Truck has a in movement sat dish on the top of the cab, Flip down Tv inside. Back seat makes into a bed and is heated. These leather seats are built where they wrap around your sides and man they sit great. It has a B&W hitch on it now. But will be mounting my Trail saver air ride hitch this weekend. Pete

RE: 2 wheel drive or 4 wheel drive

I always told myself Never would I buy a 2 wheel drive again. Well yesterday never happened. Bought a custom Chevy Kodiak c5500 crew cab to tow our camper with. So I'm sure tow bills are in my future. But do plan on adding a hidden winch to the front. That way I can winch my self out if I do mess up. http://i562.photobucket.com/albums/ss65/MSanford0926/Cummins%20powered%20Kodiak/DSCN0388.jpg My 10 year old the 13th of this month 2500HD has not been used off road more then a hand full of times. Those times It was wait hours or go around stuff. And 4x4 is worth ever cent. If I had bought new you can bet the Ram would have been 4x4. Could not pass up the C5500 with a cummins motor and allison trans.

RE: Photo paint job on a truck?

Thanks guys thinking paint on this one. And this paint job hit me like a ton of bricks a few days ago. Had been looking at it from the above pic. And could not get the colors to flow on the truck. But when seeing it from this view while pulling up to the truck. The way I want it to look jumped out at me and was unreal. Check it out http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v693/ShilohRed/camperhookedup.jpeg width=640 If you were to pull the paint off the camper and move it forward. Dark from the front cap to the front top of the sleeper. Then the other colors flowing to the back of the truck to match up with the colors on the camper. Thinking it would look great with or without the camper hooked up. Can anyone else see it from this view? Sad part is thinking I may just finish some work on the old truck. And use it as a Toy and not for long trips with the camper. But Man I love the old Gal. Being I used to run over the road in a truck for years. Its like being back on the road but without the issues of driving commercial these days. Moderator edit to re-size picture to forum limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: 3/4 Ton Towing fifth wheel

Heres our Chevy with a 2012 Heartland Landmark Key Largo. Truck has 19.5 wheels and tires I put on it when I was hauling around 4000+ Truck camper and pulling a 20ft boat. Now just the camper. Also in this pic theres no air in the air bags. And have weighted it like it sits 4 times and not over on the pin weight and at max tow rating. Even my wife has no issues driving it. Pulls great and stops great as the 5th wheel had great breaks. Even down Mountains the allison holds it back great. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v693/ShilohRed/2012%20Key%20Largo/pickwickleylargo2.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v693/ShilohRed/2012%20Key%20Largo/DSC00157.jpg http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v693/ShilohRed/2012%20Key%20Largo/download1.jpg Some will say I'm crazy, Stupid and you can't tell anyone anything. But again I know how to drive and this is not my first rodeo. Pete

RE: Can I tow this Large Travel Trailer Toy Hauler?

Not sure of the one your looking at. But our 2012 Heartland Key Largo shows gross weight of 16,200 lbs Our ready to go camping for a week weights in at less then 15,000 lbs. And we have the 5.5 KW gen in front, washer/dryer and auto sat, 4 door fridge and 3 flat screen TV. And 4 awnings so its loaded and should be at gross if they were going to be. And ours only puts 3200 lbs on our pin weight. Pete

RE: Any reason not to use this paint on a trailer?

Sure wish our clear sealant everywhere on our Heartland. Had something to stop the mold on it. Man it sure shows up on it. Pete

Photo paint job on a truck?

Wondering if anyone has used a program like Photo Shop to do there layout for the truck paint job? Reason I ask this, we will be painting ours to match the full body paint on our Key Largo. And would rather be able to see it this way. Then be able to change it if we did not like the looks of it. I will say up front we don't want the swirls like the RV has, but let the 2 of three colors flow from front to back. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v693/ShilohRed/f800-4-1.jpg width=640 Thinking the hook the dark Brown the front of the camper is. Main color the tan color of the camper on the truck. Then the white looking color a stripe . The truck now is a Dark brown like the dark color on the camper. But for some reason my phone makes it look more purple then brown. Any ideals Will sure help out on this. And would be willing to pay someone that can do it also.
