RE: Am I correct or not?

People that are doing the money-math on an RV are totally missing the point.

RE: Questions about traveling with grandkids

Buy 'em a T-shirt and a hat and call it good.... Who says memories are made by buying stuff? Go do cool stuff and take pics. Come home and make things with your pics... Calendars, coffee mugs, scrap books.

RE: 6.7 Cummins Engine Oil Temperature?

What oil temps are you guys seeing while pulling long grades?? Mine runs a bit higher than water/coolant temp.... 195 water means about 205-208 oil temp. I have noticed that there is a direct relationship between turbo boost and oil temp (which makes sense, but I never thought about it before)..... Under normal circumstances on flat ground i'll pull about 4-8 psi boost and the oil temps will be in the 205-208 I mentioned above.. However, if there's a headwind/sidewind and I'm using 20 psi to maintain highway speed, I'll see oil temps in the 220-235 range. Without a corresponding rise in coolant temp.

RE: 6.7 Cummins Engine Oil Temperature?

It's a dummy reading. Just drive it and don't worry. What do you mean a "dummy reading"?

RE: Pull-Along vs.5th Wheel

With any given truck you can pull a much bigger TT then 5th wheel. Not when the size of TTs are limited to (roughly) 32-33-34' long.... And I can go to any dealership of nearly any brand and buy a 40-41-42' 5er. In other words.... Not when they don't exist.

RE: Pull-Along vs.5th Wheel

What advantages, if any, are there of a Pull-Along over a 5th Wheel? None

RE: Pulling A Train

Welcome to the forum. You have stumbled onto one of the more controversial topics here - that of double tow. I would advise you to do some specific research on your own, as you have already, and will continue to, get bad information here. Most states allow double tow. East and West coast states are the exception. Very few have a requirement that the first trailer be a 5er (although I wouldn't tandem tow with a bumper pull). Each state sets their own length limit, although in my experience, I have never seen nor heard 1st hand experience of it actually being enforced. I have double towed for about 15 years now. With a lighter boat, and a properly set up hitch on the back of the trailer, you are unlikely to have problems. A few photos of mine over the years. I still tandem tow my fishing boat, but we have moved on from the ATVs, and the new ski boat is too big to tow behind the 5 My experience very similar. Been doing so with a few different configurations. From 37' toy hauler with jetskis.... To 40' traditional 5er with utility trailer and SXS/ATV. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-DzdhxYRio_8/U3neFt39i5I/AAAAAAAACZs/ZPDU3_AkZGI82CKgMj0WrGavHHLXlSDsQCCo/s800/IMAGE_24.jpg https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_VG4X59KTIA/U1w4qxjko3I/AAAAAAAACkM/nTsiY4pkBicLEpaocz1nsj28dlsFSc-twCCo/s800/IMAGE_16.jpg https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-Djdcgk_POBQ/S45QugCsz_I/AAAAAAAABtI/25m9g4_8iiMLTOw71mh9tRyXfuU-lExgQCCo/s800/8-15-2007%2B6-08-10%2BPM_0003.JPG Over length. 74' long. Limit in my state (OK) for a power unit and single towed unit is 70'. Limit for a power unit and two towed units is 65'. Go figure. Safety is not specific to (well maintained) equipment. Safety is an act or state of being.

RE: 50 AMP cord storage

I like my method better. Since our rig stays plugged in at home I simply disconnect and put in the back of the truck. :) same here Ditto. My cord is only ever in one of two places... Bed of truck, or powering the RV.

RE: Campgrounds Etiquette

If we practice how we like to be treated, then maybe it will filter to the rest of the world. Good Luck & Be Safe ! ! ! Good Luck with that. I'm afraid that time in history has passed. We are now vastly out numbered by the "Me first", "It's all about me" generation! :( Your parents said the same thing about your generation.... And so did the one before that. Everyone things pretty highly of themselves.

RE: Roof top A/C not cooling properly

My main 15K unit in my 2012 trailer started to cool poorly towards the end of last year.... Even began to drip water into the interior when using the "dump" feature. This unit never did cool as awesome as the 13.5K bedroom unit... I checked the interior filter - was basically Ok... Pulled exterior cover and took my air compressor hose to blow out the condenser coils - basically OK as well... Checked interior plenum for mixing of in/out air... Basically OK, but one spot could use some re-taping. Checked the exterior box over the evaporator coils - looking for mixing of air... Reaped. When checking plenum and evaporator coils, found iced up... Could potentially be result of air mixing... But more than likely caused by low refrigerant charge. Neighbor is commercial heat/air/refrigeration guy... He tested it... Said was basically empty... He charged it (R4) and the exterior line began to sweat and get "beer can cold" like it should. Nowhere did any line exhibit the typical sign of leakage... Dirty or oily residue.... Has it been low it's whole life? Is there some leak that is somewhere hidden? Who knows.....It's cooling great now., Like it should have all along. How long will this last? Dunno... But it's been cooling excellently for the last two weeks.

RE: Good ole BlowMax tires

How can I be expected to "watch them carefully" as I am driving down the highway on a hot day in heavy traffic ? I had no problem doing it. I can do it, but after the first 15 minutes or so, I do tend to get dizzy.

RE: Cannot find a new TOW vehicle with 373 gears

order it or buy a 342 you're not going to notice the difference. This ^^

RE: Good ole BlowMax tires

You do realize that all the reports of bad blowmaxs have been the "E" rated ones run near max. this is not true Please post the conflicting reports. No need to post anything to prove how my statement is true. Common sense however, tells me that your statement is not true. ALL reports of bad blowouts (what's a bad blowout vs a good one?) have been E rated that were run near max? You analyzed every single one of them? And they ALL were near max? No you didn't and no there were all not near max. I had a blowout on an E rated one and I was not at max. So essentially because I reported one (that you must have missed since you reviewed all of them) and my failure makes your statement false. And I have what I suspect is a pretry fairly common sized 5th wheel considering there are so many Montannas on the road.... A similarly sized 14.5K or 15K GVWR trailer.... I have 10,300 lbs on my trailer axles.... Well below the 14,080 overall tire capacity.

RE: Carlsbad caverns

Another vote for Brantley Lake State Park. Quite nice and very quiet. ;) If you arrive after dark, you'll feel like you're driving an eternity off the highway on a 2-lane blacktop to nowhere.... It's 5 miles off the road. We went this past February. Elevators are NOT working in the caverns... You must hike back UP the entire thing... Tentative date to have them turned back on is May 31. https://www.nps.gov/cave/planyourvisit/conditions.htm

RE: Non renewal

I haven't used a check in years. Online bill pay is the way to go. I have "checking" account... but I don't even have checks.. LOL

RE: Non renewal

I still use checks. Not sure why anybody would question that. Not everybody likes to give open access to their bank accounts online. If your money is in a bank, your account is (generally) no more or less secure if you elect to use on-line banking or not. The bank itself is a target. Customers using online access only marginally increases your chances of fraud. HOWEVER.... And this is the part I do not understand... I guess the older generation that thinks like the person I am quoting - simply has not thought this through.... Speaking of "give open access".... When paying your bills the "traditional way" with a physical check.... You've placed your account number, routing number, name, address, phone number, ORIGINAL SIGNATURE, and perhaps a driver's license number... in an envelope (which looks suspiciously like a bill) and send it through the hands of untold individuals between point A and point B. It amazes me the lack of thought this is given.
