RE: 2014 Dodge 3500 5 th hitch

Slider or not depends a lot on the 5er, and how careful you are. If the 5er has squared off front lower corners you may well be advised to get a slider. But if it has rounded off contoured lower front corners you may not. A good friend had a 5er with square front corners and short bed and knocked out his rear window on a tight back in. Later traded it for a newer 5er with contoured lower front corners and had no more problems. Although part of that was probably him being a little more careful. An air ride pin box is not necessary. BUT. It does dampen the shock between the truck and trailer and makes for an overall smoother tow.

RE: Polarity Checkers

Go to myrv.us/electric and click on outlet testing on the left side. Then scroll down and click on either 30 amp tester or 50 amp tester. Makes it simple. I made one of the 50 amp testers. And with a 50/30 adapter I can easily test 30 amp park connections or 50 amp park connections for voltage and proper wiring before I plug the RV in.

RE: 5th Wheel interest

If you want to keep the truck, lower your sights a little on the 5er. Check out floor plans of some of the so called "light weight" 5ers. There are some pretty long 5ers built now with weights significantly lower than standard weight 5ers. I have looked at them a little and even the nicer travel trailers. I made the mistake of looking at those nice 5th wheels first. Bad move! Sounds like a new 3500 in your future then. :B

RE: RG6 Coax

Connect directly to the Tailgater first just to make sure it is working properly. (I assume you have a 211 receiver??) If so, start working with the RV. A short run of RG59 in the RV will work fine. At least it did on mine. You will likely have to start tracing the internal wiring if it does not work correctly in the RV. The coax from the external connection should go direct to the internal connection for the receiver.

RE: 6.7 PSD after 2 months

Have had mine approaching 2 yrs now. And you are so right. A great truck. I had an '07 F350 6.0 that I never had a single problem with and I thought it towed great. Amazing how much more power the 6.7 has. Tows the 5er over flat to rolling country rarely ever dropping out of OD. And quiet to go along with the power.

RE: 5th Wheel rear hitch

Before you hang anything off the back, follow someone that has one down the road and watch how badly they bounce, even on relatively level roads.

RE: Dish RV Customer Service #?

My guess would be that they did not get you on the "pay as you go" plan as described on dishformyrv.com. May have you on a more permanent home type plan. You might try calling 1-888-854-9535, a number that appears on dishformyrv.com for help/information.

RE: Towing Tires for 20" wheel

Don't know if they will work for your F150. I have Michelin LTX A/T2 LT275/65R20 E rated for 3,750 lbs on my 2012 F350.

RE: How to add 2nd. A/C

What he is proposing would be your simplest solution. Parks with a 30 amp plug invariably also have a separate 20 amp plug. Unless they wired the 20 from the 30 (not likely) you would have no problem. Others here have reported doing similar modifications for running second ACs, heaters, etc.

RE: Question for those who store their RV in a storage lot

Each site where we store ours has electric (for extra $). I turn my fridge on a couple days before we get ready to head out on a trip so it can cool properly. Otherwise it is off. It builds up ice in the freezer over time is the only reason I leave it off.
BB_TX 04/15/14 08:22am General RVing Issues

Like the others, the few cents savings is not something I even consider. I also look for convenience, active station, and whatever I find to meet those issues when I need fuel. I generally look for certain name brand stations such as Shell, Exxon, Chevron, etc. as they (from information posted on here before) have higher cetane ratings than the generic Flying J/Pilot, TA, Quiktrip, Racetrack, etc.

RE: Lowering the Pin Box

Mine looks pretty much just like yours, angle braces and all, and it is mounted in the lower holes.

RE: Loud explosion while backwashing black tank

A commonly reported failure on the black tank flush systems is the failure (rupture) of the black tank flush vacuum breaker/anti siphon valve. The valve is typically plastic and located either inside an interior wall or under the bathroom sink as it has to be some level higher than the black tank itself. Mine fractured and water poured out the bottom of the trailer, but some water came out inside the trailer also. But I don't remember any one saying there was a loud boom when it failed.

RE: 50 Amp question

We also have a 50 amp trailer but often stay at parks with only 30 amp service. No problem at all on just one AC.

RE: Replace the locks?

If you are concerned about someone getting into your storage compartments, don't even bother with replacing the locks with the same kind, even with different keys. A screwdriver is all that is needed to pop the doors, with no visible damage even except a bent tab on the lock. Been there.

RE: Dropped Trailer on Bed Rails Today

Sure sounds like you did every thing right. I have always felt a little uneasy about those jaws even though they are a proven design. But I opted to go with the wrap around latch mechanism on my current Reese Elite and my previous Pullrite Super 5th. Just seems a more secure latch method.

RE: My Security Precaution and Peace of Mind

In your defense, ocbms, just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean everybody isn’t out to get you. Being alert to your surroundings and the types of people around you is nothing but good common sense. Then you can decide if the risk of staying outweighs the reward. But photographing cars and people on the off chance they may be a threat is a bit over the top. And someone photographing and watching me is going to make me suspicious of their motives and warrant follow-up. Well said. I am surprised you have not already been approached to find out what and why you are doing that. I would not like it, even with your supposed good intentions. And I am an easy person to get along with.
