RE: 2015 Weekend Warrior At Giant RV

With such a bad reputation following them, why wouldn't they change the name on the new product and try to start all over?? B.O. Idiots Can't fix stupid.

RE: Payload discrepancy

Where are you looking up payload info? The information is consistent no matter what reputable website you look at. What are the numbers on door jamb data sticker? I already answered that in another post. GVWR of 7200# minus scale weight 5900# equals 1300# of capacity left. Yes - that's what I already said in my initial post. 5900# included your husband and EVERYTHING in vehicle. Yes again... that's what I already said in my initial post. 1300# minus your weight, minus anything you put in vehicle, minus any other passengers & their stuff........not much 'actual payload' capacity going to be left. It still leaves us with over 800 so I guess "not much actual payload" is extremely subjective. That's the reality of real numbers vs mfg. published marketing numbers that have fine print/caveats such as: **May vary depending on model, trim and/or powertrain. (We had looked it up based on exact model, trim, and powertrain) **Weight of additional options, passengers, cargo and hitch must be deducted from this weight Yes I am quite aware and already mentioned that... I've responded in red above. I'm not sure if you didn't read the majority of my post or any of the comments afterward but I think all you did was just give us a synopsis of what I already said. In your very first post of this thread, you asked, "What am I missing?" You are not missing anything. Apparently you get it. You are simply giving the "reputable websites" too much credit... I.E. they spew best-case-perfect-world scenarios that almost no-one can expect to achieve.... Such is life..... Oh, and the Tundra really can't tow the space shuttle.

RE: 2015 Weekend Warrior At Giant RV

The new WW are not built by the old crew. To think they will be garbage is ridiculous. Old issues were with the old mfg. not the these new ones. This new company has the NAME only. Admittedly, you are correct judgement is premature. Time will tell.

RE: Dodge Ramm 3500 DRW Purchase

Manual has more usable ratios between 1st and 1:1 (as opposed to overdrive) Positive lockup in each and every gear Lower first gear ratio No heat buildup Some of these may or may not be beneficial to you depending on how heavy of an RZ you buy! and how hilly areas you pull.

RE: Home deduction.

Last year may be the last year we can claim the interest deduction on homes and RVs. I haven't heard it being reinstated. What makes you believe that 2013 may be the last tax year that mortgage interest is deductible? Whatever the source, it is HIGHLY suspect. It would be HUGE news if there was any legislation that would disallow the mortgage interest deduction. But... Last year as years before we spent a substantial bit of money on being stored inside and cared for. Does anyone include ,that, in there expenses or deductions. This never has been deductible and never will be - in an of itself - a personal RV. If you are a business and the RV is owned by the business... and is a legitimate business expense, then you could do so. OR... a "hobby expense" could be deductible if and only if the the cost for that "hobby" exceeds the income for that hobby - in essence, you'd be operating as a business, though you are not specifically one. But you should not take tax advice from ANYONE on this forum. You should not trust me or ANYONE who replies in this thread. You should ask your own tax advisor who knows all the particulars of your situation.

RE: WW Repairs

I had my trailer repaired last year. It began when I noticed the back of the garage had dry rot. It was caused because during assembly of my trailer, the tech forgot to apply a sealant on the outside trim of the trailer. Based upon the number seen with the same problem, I'd wager is was part of their training program. LOL ... The fiberglass is two pieces, seamed together by this strip that allowed water into mine. While the repair center had it apart, they noticed my frame had a 4 inch crack right behind of the third axle. I had them do the frame mod as well and total, it cost me $5500. The frame mod actually fixed a lot of my panels and cabinets that were once bowed and had gaps. Now my trailer feels solid and in the five years of owning it, that's all that has happened to it. I own a 2008 3905SLC. Dumbest design ever.

RE: Wi Fi security

I am a skeptic.... I take the ONLY secure way.... I pay with a REAL CHECK... like REAL MEN do.... I mean... what's safer than that? I stay off the internet all together as it relates to personal finances. In order to avoid all of the insecure shenanigans out there, I drop a personal check in the mail. A check that has my name, home address, account number (of whom i'm mailing the check to), bank account number, bank routing number, and my original signature on it!!!! AND after it leaves my hot little hand, it passes through untold hands of some of this countries lowest wage workers... and then SITS unattended in a box someplace until someone retrieves it. I'm SAFETYER than all those internet users! Interesting, ever heard of check washing? Hopefully my sarcasm didn't escape you. ;)

RE: Trans running hot on 2005Ram 3500 Auto

We tow a horse trailer with our 2005 Ram 3500 dually auto. When towing in the mountains the trans temp will get up to 230 deg. as this year does not have the abililty to lock out the overdrive(both the 04 and 06 DOES have this option) its difficult to keep the temps down. Does anyone else tow with this model and, if so, what has been your solution. Thanks Fred Up to 230? How long does it stay at that temp? Under what conditions does it get to that temp? How do you get this measurement?

RE: Tuesday Laugh Of The Day. A Cut And Paste Quote

So what's your question Mexicowanderer? This is not RV or Tech related in any way. Mocking another forum member's English or the irony an electrical installer working in the dark is better suited for ATC.

RE: Can I use Direct TV at home and on the road at same time?

The word, "illegal" is key. I don't know if you can technically say it is illegal to use your account in two different places at the same time but you are probably violating an implied agreement you have with DTV. I, like many here, take my receivers on the road but, as long as I pay my bill I don't think DTV is making any great effort to limit my use. If they were really concerned, I think they would turn off my Distant Network access, since I have 5 receivers on my account. But, that would cost them $20 a month in revenue. It is not against (my) terms of service to have a reciever is a different location - place that I own; I.e. my RV.... My cabin... However it would be against the TOS to allow someone else to use service at their location - I.e. A neighbor has your box and uses it in their home to avoid paying the base services.... This might also be "illegal" as "theft of services".

RE: Call the weight police, can't believe what I'm looking at!

Why does everyone even care what anyone else is towing or what they're towing it with? Good point. Its all in the OPs topic "call to the weight police". IMO troll threads like this one should be deleted before it gets started. They serve zero purpose. Anyone have a dead horse pic Because it may kill me and my family. Lots of things may kill you and your family. It is my belief that if you are truly concerned about the actions of others killing you or your family on the road, and you (you in general terms - anyone reading thus) wish to exert energy towards that fear... Then you focus on something that has a much greater likelihood of happening. You are much more likely to encounter danger from: Teenage drivers Drunk drivers Distracted drivers (cell talkers, texters, READERS, etc) Focusing energy on a 2500/250 driver pulling a large-ish 5th wheel is wasted energy that could be spent on something else. Seems almost like an irrational fear. Amen The subject here is RV's NOT teenage drivers, drunk drivers or distracted drivers. I am sure there are plenty of web sites for those. I can't change the minds of the ones than think they can tow anything with a 250/2500 with a comb box, bags, and 19.5's. They will have to figure it out the hard way with an eye opening situation. I post my opinion based on experience and hope someone that is new to this or someone with an open mind may think about buying the PROPER TV for the job. Once in a while there is someone that admits they were towing with a unsafe combo and wish they would have listened to others and bought the right TV in the first place and saved a lot of stress and money. All JMHO You sound pretty passionate about it.

RE: Can I use Direct TV at home and on the road at same time?

I do it every year. Be aware if you have the Genie with all clients you are stuck with one location at a time. I have a Genie but it is coupled to the regular HD receivers so I can still do it. I recently upgraded my DTV equipment. Your point is important for folks to understand. The Genie Mini's are dependent upon the Genie.... Must be using the same dish as the "main" Genie - they communicate through the coax. Prior to the upgrade, I had a HDDVR (den), and 2 HD receivers (master bedroom and office)... I would take the office receiver in the RV all the time. 3 total receivers on my account. At upgrade, I swapped to the Genie equipment. I have 1 Genie (den) and 2 Genie Minis (master bedroom and office)... I returned the two regular old HD receivers that were in the office and master bedroom... I did however KEEP my old HDDVR - for the RV. So now I have 4 receivers on the account. Eliminates the need to take the one receiver back and forth between the office and the RV... And I now get a DVR in the RV.

RE: Can I use Direct TV at home and on the road at same time?

We have a subscription with Direct TV and just recently bought a Motorhome with In Motion Satellite. I go out to the desert a lot with just my kids and the wife will often times stay home so here is my question. I figured I could just take one of my receivers out of my house as we have 4 of them and use it in the RV. Someone told me that it is illegal to have 2 satellite signals coming from 2 separate locations at the same time. So if I take the receiver with me in the Motorhome my wife cannot watch satellite tv at home or we could be in big trouble. To me this sounds stupid. I pay for the receiver so why can't I use them where I like, even if they are at different locations? Was this person wrong or am I wrong? Some people make stuff up when they don't really know. Some people also blindly repeat information they have heard without questioning it - taking it for the truth despite the fact that it was also made up. It is not `illegal` to do what you are asking about. Many of us do it all the time.
