RE: Really disappointed

Bob, I completely agree with you. This is our second rig from the same mfgr; we bought our first one used/out of warranty and had all the records from it's prior owner. And in spite of the fact that all her expenses and all of ours that would have been covered by an extended warranty come nowhere close to the aforesaid four grand, my husband couldn't be talked out of it. I'm still working on him, though! We'd be better off spending the cash on earthquake insurance--which we don't have, and this is our only primary living space! Honestly, look at what is covered and what is required of you to get it covered and its just not worth it, most of the components in a new RV are warranted by the suppliers for 2 years (Dometic , norcold, etc )a dealer talked me into a warranty once, when I got the policy and read the exclusions I cancelled. You're correct. We did not buy a GS Warranty till after the factory warranty passed. Still, we bought the exact policy and full well know what is not covered. I must've called the salesperson from GS back 4 or 5 times asking questions, had him send me paperwork to read, etc. before we decided. We went with GS because we are part time RV'ers and the cost of Wholesale Warranties was not worth it to us. Were we full time RV'ers we would have gone with Wholesale Warranties.

RE: Didn't Believe about the Chinese Tires

I guess from these 7 pages of posts, it is up to the individual to choose which Third World Nation they want to produce their tires. Really confusing but I will be digging into the LT vs. ST, China vs. non-China, load range upgrading etc. in the next couple of years; so I enjoy these posts. Save yourself some time and go straight to the expert - Roger Marble and his RV Tire Safety blog. I listed the link in this thread.

RE: Didn't Believe about the Chinese Tires

I'm guessing they were original equipment? So 5 yr old tires grenade, don't think it had anything to do with them being Chinese. Just my very humble opinion. Probably but, I bought the TT used and I think things were cobbled together and who knows. They were the Westlake brand, with excellent tread. So...you really don't know how the tires were treated, whether they were ever run under/over inflated, how many curbs they hopped, or even how old they were. But the problem was definitely where they were made however long and many miles ago. With all due respect, this is why I take complaints about "China bombs" with a huge grain of salt and healthy dose of skepticism. As I said on page 1, how the legend propagates. Jmho. Exactly. In addition, you cannot judge a book by its cover, errr I mean you cannot judge a tire by its tread. So often there are underlying problems waiting to happen.

RE: Didn't Believe about the Chinese Tires

Funny thing that nobody promotes changing TV tires after 5 years and posts blown tire stories;most TV tires do more miles than TT tires do. Could it be a double standard? I would be quite angry if my TV tires only lasted a few thosand miles or years. Seems like the tire sales people have a good profit center going.Just my grass roots opinion and yes I have LT tires on my TT. Different issues. TV tires generally don't sit for long periods of time, yet RV tires do. TV tires do require replacement based on mileage so based on what your average annual mileage is, you may be replacing sooner than 5 - 7 years.

RE: wyoming trip

Bridge Bay within the park is definitely a good option and roomy for any level of experience in parking an RV! As for West Yellowstone as a suggestion, yes, there are many options there with Grizzly RV and an KOA there. We prefer Bakers Hole CG, 2 miles North, with electricity and plenty of room. Baker's Hole is first come, first served and that's the only drawback. So, you have your homework planned for you. At the recommendation of another person and forum here, next time we go to Yellowstone, we're staying at Buffalo Bill State Park in a hookup site so we can check out that side of the valley.

RE: wyoming trip

Colter Bay Village RV Park in Grand Tetons National Park and not far from Jackson. Full hookups in a very nice setting. Have a great trip. I agree. You won't feel like you're in an RV park. Make your reservation now though because they are popular. Nice thing about Colter Bay is that there is a village within walking distance and a museum at the visitor center. There's a gift shop, a mini-mart, Laundromat, two restaurants, and ticket office for horse back rides or the boat across the lake.

RE: Really disappointed

I am full aware of what is covered and what is not due to reading the fine print. For tires to be covered, you have to pay extra for that AND the tires have to be proven as failed and not just a flat that blew and damaged your RV. We specifically paid extra for slide room coverage, not stereo systems, not tires.

RE: Thermostat??

Fantastic fan? You are probably right! We have two Fantastic Fans and two thermostats for them, which is correct because you set the temp and the fans will run till the inside temp is reached.

RE: Opinions wanted - 5th wheels suggestions

We just purchased our first 5th wheel after years of small trailer towing. After looking at Cougars and Augusta Flex, Palomino and Evergreen, we landed on Grand Design Reflection and never looked back. We love our 337RLS. Perfect size, and has the bed slide that we wanted for ventilation. We have been very impressed with the quality construction of this camper. Very sturdy but not so heavy that a 3/4 ton diesel can't pull it. The floor plan is perfect, the details are perfect. The refrig, stove and fireplace are in the slide and it has worked flawlessly. I've seen a couple of comments here on a 3/4 ton easily pulling these units but not the Heartland Bighorn's. This all depends on the year of the 3/4 ton and the model of Bighorn. We have a 2011 3055RL Bighorn, dry weight of 11,028 and fully loaded of about 14K. We could not tow it "easily" with the 1999 3/4 ton PU we had. The GD Reflection noted here is a GVWR of 13,995. With that same PU/TV, we would not be able to tow the Reflection. The GD's seem comparable in weight to the Bighorn's. We currently tow our Bighorn with a 2011 F350 DRW Diesel.

RE: Locked inside by entry assist handle

I just went out and tried mine. As others have posted and I suspected the beveled edge will not allow the handle to be locked against the door. A slight tug on the handle pops it open. Pulling on the door does the same and doesn't even leave a mark. now don't all of you that jumped out your window feel silly? bumpy Hilarious! I nearly choked laughing.

RE: Satellite Dish

Wow...I must be doing something wrong. I just attach the cable to the Tailgater and the 5ver, Dead reckon point it south, call Dish, follow the screen prompts and watch. no 110, 119's, 129"s, aluminum foil, satellite locators... etc. I thought it was just supposed to be plug and play ??? I do use HDMI cable from Dish box to TV... the picture looks pretty good. Maybe I need to make it more complicated ? :D Charles Ha ha! I can beat that. I just push a button and my Travl'r Dish goes up, locks on, and I'm ready to watch TV.

RE: Opinions wanted - 5th wheels suggestions

I have a 3/4 ton diesel truck, and many of the Heartland fifth wheels are just too heavy for me. You are right about this. We had a 3/4 ton when we first bought our Bighorn (and it's one of the shorter ones), towed it but not safely. We upgraded to a 1 ton and it made the world of difference.

RE: Locking hitch pins for 5th wheel hitches?

You guys must live in a magical place where nobody has anything stolen, Amazing! I was parked with my fiver in a walmart parking Lot, Portland Ore. Buying some supplies for my stay in Mt. Hood. I was coming out to my Rig and 2 Guys popped out of the Bed of my truck and ran like Hell. They had the Landing gear down and the Hitch Plate half removed and All the Rail pins pulled....Another 10 min. and my hitch would have been gone.I have Locking pins all the way around now, and I don't leave my rig ANYWHERE without a chaparone now. If y'all haven't been hit yet, count yourself lucky.They'll find you.... Oh, yeah, this happened last month. Now you've heard of one..... Thanks for the report and glad you got out in time to scare them off. I posted the pic of the lock and we have them all the way around. Peace of mind. Plus, someone always chaperones the rig, not to mention the big black dog that goes with it! :B
