RE: Keystone Laredo

Our first 5er was a Laredo rear kitchen model. We had no complaints about it, we were just ready, after 3 years use, to upgrade. It was considered then, and I believe now, a mid level trailer. Hope this helps.

RE: Tire Pressure Monitor

I have the Tire Traker system. The trip down to Texas was my first use of them, but I was satisfied with the performance. Hope this helps.

RE: Open or closed

As others have posted above, we leave the grey tank open most of the time, only closing it a couple days before dumping the black tank. This has worked well for us the last several years as we winter in Texas. Seems to be what most of the others in the RV park do. Hope this helps.

RE: Will this work?

Thanks for the replies and suggestions. Working over the tailgate (or NOT working up in the pickup bed) has some benefits that I'll look into. Thanks again.

Will this work?

I need to raise the pin box on my trailer one notch. For a variety of reasons I just don't have the strength I used to so manhandling the thing just ain't gonna happen. I'm thinking of hitching up so the pin box is supported by the hitch and, after removing the bolts, lowering the trailer with the landing gear to the correct level. Has anyone tried this; any problems with this method? Thanks for any replies.

RE: water filters?

I adapted a whole house filter canister to accept garden hose type connections and use a replaceable charcoal filter cartridge for filtration. The nice thing about it is that you can pick the type of cartridge you want to use. Works well for us. Hope this helps.

RE: Dish Turnoff, On Confusing

I followed a somewhat different path. We already had Dish in the house so I purchased a receiver and antenna for the RV. It costs another $7/mo. to add the RV to my existing account. For that nominal amount I leave it active year 'round. I can use it whenever we go camping throughout the summer. After we arrive in Texas for the winter I just change my service location and I get the local channels. Since I have only one account I must leave the receiver in the house still active. But with the Dish Anywhere feature I'm able to control my house receiver with my iPhone and watch or record programs remotely. That comes in handy if we're away from the RV and I still want to catch up on football scores or watch a game. Works well for us. Hope this helps.

RE: Water softener recommendations

We have used our Flopure water softener for the last three years while we're in the Texas Hill Country. Depending on how well the park's RO system was operating, I'd have to regenerate the softener every 10 days to 3-4 weeks. It really made a difference on showering and cooking water. We still run the softened water through a distiller for drinking and making coffee in the Keurig. I have the one that uses two pounds of non-iodized salt for regeneration. When we got ours there was also another model that used only one pound of salt, but the guys in the park that used those had to regenerate sooner than I did. Hope this helps.
