RE: Generac IQ2000

My whole-house standby generator is a Generac. Trouble free for years.

RE: Does anyone use stabilizers under their slide out?

Campground is full. All these poor souls. Not a one of them using slide stabilizers. :(

RE: Winter Storage of RV

I recently purchased a new fifth wheel and will be storing it a covered storage building that is not climate controlled. I paid a little extra for a 30 amp hookup with the thought of keeping it warm enough so that I do not have to winterize my coach (I live in Oklahoma). What should I run (furnace I assume) and what temperature should I set the thermostat in order to avoid freezing? Thanks for the input. What kind of building is this? Is it concrete slab? Is it a metal "pole barn" with simple sheet-metal walls? Or is it insulated? Reason I ask.... I have a 40'x50' red-iron/metal building with 4" rolled insulation on concrete slab. There's enough heat coming up from the earth through the slab - that gets trapped by the insulation... The coldest I've ever seen inside this building is 38 degrees - and that was when it had been below freezing for several days - low morning temps in single digits - daily highs in the mid 20s. As a result I just park RV inside the building and do not winterize at all. No need to run any heat either.

RE: Does anyone use stabilizers under their slide out?

Crambo I have not find one (1) RV MFG. that recommends using slideout supports. Fact is they recommend against using them One major retailer says they, "Protect your slide-out extension tubes from bending, causing difficult slide-out operation." Sounds pretty serious--a bent frame could be bad news when it's time to weigh anchor and hit the road. But hang on a minute--if they're so critical, why don't RV manufacturers provide them with new rigs, or at least make them a piece of optional equipment? And that begs the question: If your slide out needs stabilization to prevent damage, why aren't there scores of unhappy campers limping across the country on their way to service bays, slide out rooms flapping in the breeze? Just an aftermarket product that is NOT needed or required BUT can be used if so desired......So like everything in life YOU have to decide if something available aftermarket is worth it. http://rvtravel.com/blog/jerry/uploaded_images/1-fiver-slide-dump-701738.jpg Like button

RE: Towing a towed and a boat behind mh

Any time you ask "is something legal" on this forum, you are guaranteed to get lots of misinformation and scare tactics from members. I suggest you research it yourself. Understand the laws where you plan on travel. And then decide for yourself. I have yet to see a "towing laws" compilation website that wasn't incorrect.

RE: Does anyone use stabilizers under their slide out?

My TT has a slide where the kitchen table and couch slide out and I was wondering if I need to be using some type of stabilizer when it is in the out position. If so, which ones are the best without costing a fortune? The correct answer is NO. They are not needed - for the reasons already cited here in this thread. If you doubt the advice given, call your trailer's manufacturer and ask them their opinion.

RE: TC Oven use - baking bread

There have been some long threads about how people use, or don't use, their ovens. I stumbled across a new use, baking bread. A local bakery has come out with vacuum packed, long life (4 months+) bread loafs that you unwrap and bake for around 15 minutes. I packed one in my truck camper a month ago and tried it this weekend. Very nice to have fresh, hot, sourdough bread with almost no effort. The breads I found are found here: Bake at home bread I have no idea how available these kind of breads are around the country but I'm hooked and added a few more loafs to the TC pantry. Like button

Of a bigger concern to me would me my TV. What are you going to pull that RV with? Stay focused on the question he's asking.

RE: 13500 A/C on 2000 watt inverter?

I would go back to the generator. In the long run, it will be cheaper to run and maintain, and will not have any adverse effects on the vehicle's electrical system. ^ this

RE: Long bed avaiability ?

Question , trying to find a decent equipped long bed diesel, new is almost impossible here in Florida.I mean gm, or ram.all I have found are work truck stripped models.what is avaiaibilty like elsrwhere for long bed crew cab diesel models.that are nicely equipped. Actually checking car max is not much better they only have 2dozen nation wide.no that is not a criticising shot At them.or is a long bed diesel crew cab.special order ? are you looking for a dually? or SRW? Finding a SRW long bed (whether a 2500 or 3500) is going to be difficult - even in a rural area like where I live. Not impossible, just not as common for a dealer standard order for their inventory. If you're talking dually? 99% of 3500s on my dealer lot are duallys / 4wd / LONGBED / with 5th-goose prep. The only real item to choose is interior trim and if you want the Aisin or 68rfe.

RE: Mega sh 2500 hemi how much can I tow comfortably

It has been my experience, that a longer, 30% heavier trailer, does not tow much harder than the one being towed now. If the frontal area is the same, not much difference. The longer/heavier TT may have larger tires/wheels, that make for an easier tow. My FW is heavier than the previous one. The front is more aerodynamic, and it pulls about the same, and truck mileage, did not change either. Jerry Correct response ^^^^^

RE: B&W And 2015 Chevrolet 3500 ISSUES

I have a 2015 GMC 3500 an just checked mine is the same way, what was the end fix to get it flat on the bed? Install it properly. From what I've read here, it sounds like the installers just slapped the B&W hitch in and tightened the bolts down without making sure the ball was vertical. There is a little slop in the holes and a tiny lean forward or back on the ball would translate into the companion hitch not sitting flat in the bed. What I would do is install the B&W hitch loosely, install the companion hitch in place to hold the B&W frame in the correct position, and finally tighten up the bolts. I think most people read something totally different.

RE: B&W And 2015 Chevrolet 3500 ISSUES

After weeks of trying to get the problems fixed with my truck. B&W invited me down to their manufacturing facility. I took advantage of that and was there last Monday with truck and trailer. Waiting on me was 5 engineers. After 5 hours of going over my truck. They were able to fix some installation problems created by my installer where I live. Even with the crown in the bed they managed to get the Companion to lay flat into the bed of the truck. I am very pleased with the way they handled my situation and hope they will be sure to notify all there installers of the issues with GM Trucks. I knew there was a reason why I bought a american made product. B&W you guy's followed through with all your warranty obligations and even more. You dedication to your product is what the USA was built on. USA Made Thank to everyone, for all you input here. It got me to where I needed to be. I can now tow my fifth wheel with confidence and know that I made a good choice in the product I bought. If this was Facebook, i would click the like button for this post.

RE: House hookup

If you decide on either a 30 or 50 amp, I strongly suggest to hire an electrician to do it properly and to code.30A is easy. Definitely get a real electrician for 50A. 30A is where everybody screws up and wires it 240V....even the 'real' electriciansUhhhh, no. 30A is no different to hook up than 15A (different breaker, wire gauge and receptacle obviously). 50A is where people screw up and wire it 240V. No way to do that with 30A. Joe does not understand RV electrical. Do not take any advice from him.

RE: Winnebago Scorpion 4014 Pin Weight.

... as high as 4500lbs. I tend to disagree with the 4500. That's beyond even dually territory. Not true

Don't forget to buy your "Barkeeper's Friend" to clean your SS with.
