RE: New to 5th Wheel and looking for information

Thanks for the replies. I will look to get the most truck I can buy, but don't want to sell the farm to get a loan. Doesn't make since to me. How about pin weight? Are my calculations close?

New to 5th Wheel and looking for information

Long time RVer, but my first 5th Wheel. I have a 2001 Jayco Eagle 293 with 2 slides. The GVWR is 11,500. I don't have a TV yet and want to make sure I get the numbers right before purchasing a TV. I had it delivered to where I live and have plenty of time to find the correct TV. Since I won't being buying a new truck, but a used truck, about late 90's or early 2000's, mainly because I don't want a truck loan and will be paying cash. Brand doesn't matter since I have owned or operated all. I would also like to get a diesel and it will be my daily driver. So I need some help. 1. How to I figure pin weight? I was guessing 18% to 20% of GVWR 2. What size truck 3/4 or 1 ton? 3. Would a 16K hitch be good? 4. Also anything else I may have forgot is open for advise. Thanks Arnold

RE: Big Time RV! on Travel Channel

Yea, watched it last night and about 15 min into the show realized it was an ad for Lazy Dazes. The RV's were nice, but nothing else was worth watching.

RE: Thor Pinnacle

Hello fellow 12er. Go ahead and ask your questions. The systems are all pretty much the same. If you don't have manuals you can usually get them on line. Not sure what chassis you have but someone out there will know. Just be as specific as you can when asking and the answers will come. Enjoy your MH and Go Hawks. The second title run starts today.

RE: motorhome title

I just received a title for a vehicle and they quoted 4 to 6 weeks and it arrived in 4. Out of State should take 6 to 8 weeks, unless you financed it and you won't receive a title. The bank or lending institution will receive it and hold it until loan is paid off.

RE: Class C regrets/Options you wish you had?First time class C

The chances of 5000 tow rating in a C are usually not available. Don't let the salesperson tell you it's OK do your research. I agree with Bobbo and I wish I had got a slide. We didn't because we spend little time inside, but when we went on our 13 state trip it would have been nice.

RE: Washington State Residents

I don't think that is for light rail. I just renewed mine in January and the $75 was for Gwt/Veh weight. No light rail.

RE: How likely am I to need 30amp and/or water extensions?

Wow I've traveled to 13 Western States and never needed extra electrical cord, but I do carry 35' of water hose. If I have to go over the regular length of cord I would just not worry about plugging in.

RE: 2 newbie questions

Question 1: It will charge only the house batteries Question 2: You don't need an expensive dump hose. As long as it connects to the dump valve on the RV you are OK

RE: Class C MPG

28' Chateau Sport weighs in at 11,500 and average about 9.5mpg. Last summer took a 5700+ mile trip to 13 Western States and averaged 9.78 (no towing) through the Rockies 2x and 2 days of head winds in Kansas. Also ran the generator for at least 1/2 the time we were driving and dash air. Hit 95+ degree weather for 3 weeks. The big factor is speed and terrain. I don't usually drive over 60 and now I don't look at MPG. I just enjoy the trip.

RE: Gas mileage

8 is pretty good for a Ford 460. Slow down to 55 to 57 and enjoy the ride. That said, "quit worring about mileage and enjoy the RV."

RE: Starting Generator

Should be your house battery. I also know that if your house battery is weak I can start my coach and let it run a few minutes and then start my generator. Had that happen while drycamping and the house battery was too low to start the generator and started the engine and then the generator.

RE: Hitch Mount Bike Racks

Make sure you use the 2" receiver. It will be better suited for travel. I purchased mine through Walmart online. Spent about $100 or so and carries 5 bikes. I looked at that one and compared it to the very expensive ones and found no difference. I was excellent. Took it on a 5700+ trip through the SW last summer and through extreme rough roads and never a problem.

RE: Running AC while driving

Are you worried about MPG? I ran both my AC's last summer going through the SW and didn't worry about mileage when it's over 100 outside. Just run the generator and it will give it a good workout.

RE: Need a New Engine Battery.

Depends on what you call breaking the bank. I just put an Interstate battery in my SUV for $125 and a couple of years ago I put an Optima from NAPA for $200. You get what you pay for. You can always check at Costco or Walmart for something less.

RE: WA Resident Buying Used in AZ

As stated you will need a signed title, bill of sale, call you insurance company and have them fax or e-mail you proof of insurance, trip permit. When you arrive in WA go to the DMV and hand them the paperwork and pay the sales tax on the purchase price and whatever fees are required in your county and you will be good to go.

RE: Problem with Jack antenna

Did you put the TV to setup and scan for channels? Each time you move and set up you need to scan for channels. When I had mine on the other MH I did that every time and would get all the local channels.

RE: wander

As lanerd stated go get it weighed. Then adjust the air pressure in your tires. My 87 Allegro wandered all over until I weighed it and lowered the pressure. My current C was about 15 psi over on each tire and I lowered the pressure and it improved greatly. Last summer we went on a 13 state tour and the only wandering I encountered was driving in wind and that was only bad in Kansas. So start with the cheap before spending $$$$$ on fixed. You also have to remember it won't drive like a car or truck. You driving a house on wheels. And unless you have a large DP you will have a different feel.

RE: newby to motorhomes

What are your uses going to be. Full time, weekend camping, short trips, or a few times a year. If usage is high then diesel will be the way to go, if only for camping and the sort then a gas model will work for cost. Diesel will run $$$$ more than gas. As for size you need to look around and be inside and see which layout will work for you. Go to as many RV shows you can and sit inside. Define your usage and that will help.
