RE: 30 Amp RV Plug End

Looks good. That should give you a very good connection.

RE: Which 5th Wheel for Full Timeing

........... I realize I should have indicated our budget which is we want to stay under 100K, preferably in the 75 to 85K range, but for the right one we will consider going to 100K. ....... If there are particular floor plans you are interested in, google that floor plan and rvtrader and look at new units (or used if you are interested in buying used). Rvtrader.com will post models at various dealers all across the US for sale and the listed prices. You will find quite a variance in the listed prices. I have been looking at new Montanas. A new Montana that MSRP of $90K or more will be offered by dealers any where from near that $90K to as low as the $60K range or less. And the low end is what you should expect to pay for that new Montana. Using that info, you can bargain with your local dealer. I would guess the other models you are looking at would have similar price variations. Lots of research puts you in a better bargaining position. That would give you extra money to add things like better tires, washer/dryer, residential fridge (all options on Montana), and other upgrades. Also by just googling the model number (without rvtrader in the search box), you will get lots of hits from additional various dealer web sites where you can look at pictures of their units and their listed prices.

RE: Which 5th Wheel for Full Timeing

Keep in mind that the Landmark is in a higher price range than the other models you mention. And DRV is in an even higher price range. Depends on how much you are willing and able to spend without breaking the bank and still be satisfied with what you end up buying. Although you always hope not to need warranty (or out of warranty) repairs it is always good to have a good local dealer with a reputable service department. I would do some research on that aspect also.

RE: How can I improve wi-fi at rv parks?

Just be aware that even if you boost the signal strength, you may still find the park wifi of minimal use due to limited bandwidth. Not unusual to have very good signal and very slow wifi.

RE: Which 5th Wheel for Full Timeing

I have a Montana, but not a full timer. But being a member of the very active Montana Owners Club forum, I know there are a lot of Montana full timers very happy with their units.

RE: Colorado Springs to Cortez

You will not have a problem that route. However, you do have to cross Wolf Creek Pass, a pretty high pass. But going west bound is the easier direction. The west side is steeper and longer than the east side. Just be sure to keep your speed down by gearing down and not riding the brakes. There are two lanes going down so you can get in the right lane and go as slow as you want without holding up traffic. And if you need it, there are two runaway truck ramps for your convenience! :B

RE: Driking from fresh water tank

Lots of info on the web about how to sanitize your fresh water tank.

RE: trailer not fitting site

I have been in some state and COE parks that had a limited number of longer sites. Have not had a problem yet, but a visit at a crowded time and you possibly could find none of the longer sites available. Ours is 35'.

RE: Wiring for satalite.

Don't need 12v (or any other external power source) with Dish manual antennas. And if you use a Dish vip211 receiver with a Tailgater antenna, the Tailgater gets power thru the coax from the receiver.

RE: Photo - *uckit

I have no problem with photobucket either. Just click on the direct copy icon on the photo page of interest. The word "copied" momentarily pops up. Then paste it in the image link for this site.

RE: Ideas for attaching items under the RV

A few holes in the frame will not harm it at all. And will by far be the most secure way of attaching something. Drill proper size holes and use self tapping screws/bolts.

RE: Texas weather in June

Typically, tornado season is pretty much over by late May. Not to say they can't happen in June. By mid June summer has usually settled in here, generally with clear HOT days. By late June temps over 100 are not uncommon. And from mid June to early Sept daytime highs below 95 don't happen very often. And rain is typically scarce. But this year has not been normal so far. Temps cooler than normal. Much more rain than normal. And many more severe storms, and yes tornados, than normal. But it should begin to settle out in the next couple of weeks. Any time you are in tornado prone areas always ask the RV park office if they have a designated storm safe room or shelter.

RE: F350 5th wheel prep

Yes, it is all there. You just need a hitch made to fit the system. Reese, B&W, Pullrite all make good hitches to fit.

RE: Which Dish receiver to you travel with?

We use a Dish vip211k receiver with an external hard drive that makes it a DVR. Connected to a Tailgater dish antenna that automatically locates and latches on to the satellites. One time fee of $40 (I think, been a few years) to activate the hard drive for the DVR. It does get HD programming. And DVR works fine so DW is happy.

RE: Terrible Experience

I still don't understand how this became a KOA bashing thread. ................... The mere mention of KOA immediately brings out the KOA bashers, no matter what the subject matter is.

RE: Water Heater Confusion

Sounds like you learned two lessons. Make sure of the part, and don't take your wife with you to CW if you just need a simple part. :B

RE: 2011 - 2014 6.7 Powerstroke PCM update. Did You?

If this is the update concerning the problematic exhaust temp high sensors, then I would recommend you get it. The problem is that if one of the sensors fails and registers extreme high temp, it will give you a "stop safely now" message and quickly shut down the engine with little advance warning. Then it cannot be restarted for at least 30 minutes, with no guarantee you can drive it very far without it happening again. That happened to me (2012 F350 6.7). Had to have it towed to dealer for warranty sensor replacement. Fortunately it did not happen in the middle of a highway or intersection. I have experienced no noticable difference in performance since the update about 6 weeks or so ago. And that includes towing the 5er.

RE: My thoughts on the "Rapid Response Team"

You should never assume all Camping Woflds are bad due to posts here about some of them. And more importantly, never assume you will get better service going to an independent dealer.

RE: Does it matter which Verizon phone I get?

.............. BB TX (and everyone): Which phones, specifically, are working well for you? Sounds like it matters! Verizon has worked will for us on iPhone4, iPhone5, iPhone 6, an older Motorola flip phone, and another older phone the DW had that I can't remember brand/model. Have not had a phone with Verizon that did not work for us as well or better than others around us with different carriers.
