RE: Stupid question

Here is how mine and a friend's Montanas (different floor plans) worked. There was a metal plate screwed to the bottom of the TV. And another metal plate screwed inside the bottom of the cabinet. The plate on the TV slides into the plate in the cabinet and latches. You had to reach behind the TV, lift a spring catch, and slide the TV out. On mine, there was an opening covered by a plastic panel in the toilet room behind the TV. On my friends, there was an opening in the side wall of the pantry covered by a similar plastic beside the TV. Look around the TV cabinet for similar openings.

RE: Toll Road Speed Limit

The old DFW Turnpike used to be that way many many years ago. Free for many years now. But all the other many toll roads here now no longer have toll booths. They read your electronic toll tag if you have one, or photo your license plate and send an invoice if you don't. But no speeding tickets. I would almost welcome it as many seem to view them as raceways routinely running 15-20 over the limit. Minimal enforcement.

RE: Camping World Paint and Fabric Protection

Common for auto dealers to offer such plans. But everything I have ever read was it was just a huge profit item for the dealer with little benefit for the consumer.

RE: 18" vs 20" Wheels

For Michelin LTX M/S2 tires, the 20" tires have a higher load rating than the 18" tires, 3750# for 20" vs 3640# for 18" (for single tire applications) and 3415# for 20" vs 3305# for 18" (for dually applications).

RE: Truck Dually Wheels

The pin weight of the 5er is the primary issue of DRW vs SRW. They have really boosted the carrying capacity of the newer trucks. But there still comes a point where you need the DRW due to heavy pin weights. Check the payload ratings of the truck(s) of interest and then see if it is enough to carry your 5er.

RE: Utility trailer conversion to an RV trailer!!

Could be wrong, but am guessing anyone 6' tall would have a problem standing up straight in it.

RE: Stanley Steamer

I use the same Hoover steamvac I use on the home carpets. Have used it in the RV once/twice a year for the last 7 years. Works great. I do it on a day when the humidity is low and temps are ok for opening the windows. Dries fairly quickly and cleans well. Surprising just how much dirt comes up out of the carpets even when they still look clean.

RE: Camping? When did you start.

Grew up in the late 40's early 50's with family camping where ever there was a creek to fish in. Cots under the stars. If it rained, we covered the cots and waited it out, or just went home if it was too bad. Coleman lanterns and stoves for light and cooking. Never owned a tent until I bought one when I was in my late teens. Did some tent camping thru the 60's and 70's. Then pretty much stopped until we bought a 5er in 2007. I think I told my age. :B

RE: Around Dallas/Forth Worth

I would take US380 west at Greenville to US281 south back to I-20. At one time, 380 was a good route. It is still a good road, but due to massive population growth and associated traffic, no longer a good bypass route. Just the 35 miles between east side of McKinney and west side of Denton there are over 40 traffic lights now and lots of traffic to go with them. I live just off 380. :(

RE: Around Dallas/Forth Worth

I-30 to I-635 on east side of Dallas, south on I-635 to I-20 west. Easy changes and bypasses most of Dallas and Ft Worth on the south side. Just don't approach Dallas on I-30 early on a weekday morning, 6 am to 9:30 am. After that you will not likely have any traffic problem, barring an accident of course.

RE: Ram dually vs Ford dually Frame Flex Comparison

And an earlier version posted months ago. I guess if you took your truck rock climbing it might have some meaning. Otherwise pointless.

RE: Fords 6.7 Scorpion Diesel motor

Not sure if you would consider it "long term", but I have a 2012 F350 6.7 bought new July 2012. Only have something over 25,000 miles so far. Have towed the 35' 5er over Colorado mountain passes twice the last two years plus several other trips. Never a problem, and it tows the passes great. Love the truck.

RE: $2 gal fuel? TOLD YOU SO

Stations are already posting sub $2.00 prices locally. And bought diesel today for $2.88!

RE: campgrounds with cable boxes

On some units (such as mine) the external connection comes inside to a dual coax wall plate with a short jumper between the two coax connectors that then goes to the TV(s). I can remove the jumper and connect that type box to the two coax connectors on the wall plate. That will send the cable box signal to the TVs via the internal wiring from the outside connection. BUT. With a single cable box both TVs will get the same channel since the box can only be tuned to one channel at a time. Look to see if you have such a dual coax wall plate.

RE: Electrical issues in attitude toyhauler

Excuse me!?? Who are you to say what knowledge I have or don't have??? I came to this site just like your here to supposedly "help" people but apparently not!! OK, you did take offense. And for that I am sorry. From your statements, questions, and troubleshooting I wondered about your electrical knowledge. I apologize for upsetting you.

RE: Electrical issues in attitude toyhauler

I think you would do well to take it to a service center and have an experienced RV electrical technician check it. No offense meant, but it sounds as though you may not have enough electrical knowledge to be able to safely troubleshoot the problem yourself.

RE: Love My 6.0L Ford

I am another who was very happy with my 6.0s. I had two, a 2004 F250 and a 2007 F350. Almost no problem with either although I did not quite make 100,000 either before trading. Would still have the 2007 if I had not made the mistake of browsing the new truck lot 2 yrs ago while in for an oil change. Love the 2012 6.7 also. :)

RE: Use of engine brake prohibited

Very common in many areas we have been in. If you have ever heard a large truck coming down a grade and hit his engine/jake brake you would understand why the signs. In some cases, very very loud.

RE: upper terrace loop drive yellowstone

Been a number of years since I was there, but there could be some overhead clearance issues with trees. And maybe some width issues.
