I have stayed at some independently owned, non chain RV parks that were poor with unlevel sites, high grass, unfriendly employees, and much over priced. Therefore I recommend no one ever stay at any independently owned, non chain RV park. :S

RE: Best cell service providers, (areas covered)

We had ATT for years. But there were places that my son had better service from his Verizon than we did with our ATT. Between that and some customer service issues with ATT we changed to Verizon and have not regretted it.

RE: Cameo electric water heater switch

There are a number of things that could be the problem; Bad heating element Bad thermostat/hi temp cutout Bad switch inside Bad switch on the water heater (or switch is off) Tripped circuit breaker Bad or loose wire connection Just a process of elimination using a voltmeter.

RE: Best route from Branson, MO to Eureka Springs, AR

US 65 south to US 62 west. A little hilly in places but not bad at all. I have towed my 35' 5er thru there and no problem. Now US 62 west of Eureka Springs is another story.

RE: Brand survey likes/dislikes

We bought a 2007 Montana new July 2007. It has been as troublefree as I could have ever hoped. Replaced failed convection/microwave and no-name sound system. Virtually no significant problems at all with the trailer itself.

RE: Settle a "tires" issue

I replaced the OEM STs with Michelin XPS Ribs (LT) one year after I bought the 5er new. And I have had LTs for the following 9 yrs and those tires have been great. Have read these tire posts for years and never read anyone post any regrets about putting LTs on their 5er.

RE: Entertainment Center problems

I had a no name DVD player/surround sound system (home theater system) in my 2007 5er that also lost all sound. It was mounted in small opening in the cabinet below the TV. Measured the opening and went to Best Buy and bought a new home theater system to fit that opening. Came with new speakers. Used the new speakers with the existing wiring. Sounds much better than the original.

RE: Going to Albuquerque

Are you taking I-40 all the way? We have stayed at the KOA just east of Oklahoma City and would again. And have stayed at Fort Amarillo RV Resort on the west edge of Amarillo numerous times. I-40, like most interstates, varies from very good newly rebuilt to aging and very rough and will change back and forth as you drive.

RE: Tpms

Have had the TST 507 for 5 yrs or so. Have never even had a low tire. But the peace of mind of being able to see the pressures while driving is worth every penny.

RE: What defines a TT as a "True Four Season"?

I agree with above, pure marketing. Anyone can call anything whatever they want as long as there are no legal constraints. And sometimes even that doesn't stop them.

RE: New 5th Wheel price

Google the particular model you are looking at and see dealer prices nationwide. You will find similar/same models with MSRPs that vary a lot, and prices that vary even more. Find the lowest price you can and use that as a bargaining tool if your dealer is significantly higher. Many times you will see MSRP, "our price", and call for "our lowest price" all on the same page.

RE: Places to Stay near San Antonio, TX

We have also stayed at Traveler's World and would again. Not a state or COE park, but a good place for touring SA. Located on a street that runs directly downtown, about 2 miles, with good parking within 1-2 blocks of the Riverwalk. And then also close to the Alamo, Mercado, and other downtown destinations. Or there is a bus stop directly in front of the park if you prefer not to drive there. Also located near some of the missions on the mission trail. And a Walmart is only a few blocks away. :B

RE: RV "Hot Skin" and GFCI?

You need to verify that ground at the pedastal is good. Then verify that ground is good all the way from the pedastal thru your power cord and to the RV frame. If you have good ground connection from the frame to a good solid ground at the pedastal and the pedastal ground is confirmed good, you should not have hot skin. If it comes and goes you may have a loose/bad ground connection somewhere.

RE: DVD home theater system

Have no idea what that one looks like, but when the 5.1 home theater system surround sound system in my 5er died, I just wrote down the measurements of it and went to Best Buy and found one similar in size. Mine is mounted in a small opening in a cabinet, so size was important. Found on that would fit the opening perfect. Included new speakers. I used the existing wiring and installed the new speakers. The "lot of wires" is probably speaker wiring for surround sound speakers (5 speakers plus a sub woofer = 5.1).

RE: Cost of repairing RV

I just recently found out how expensive it can be. Tail swing getting out of a tight spot caught the curb side corner of the rear cap on a post and pulled it back about two feet tearing the fiberglass cap in three places. Pulled away from the rear window, but did not break it. And some scrapes on the side panel. Rear cap had to be completely removed to repair the damaged fiberglass and then painted. Then reinstalled, recaulked, and new decals/graphics. Washed entire 5er including roof and awning. Final tally about $16k! But they did a fantastic job handling the estimate, coordinating with my insurance, and completing the entire process in 3 weeks. Rear cap looks better than new. Might have found a cheaper shop somewhere, but my insurance had no problem with the number and paid in full, no questions asked. Your damage may not be as bad.

RE: Fifth wheel hitch questions

B&W certainly has lots of satisfied buyers. But all the other major brands are very good also and most offer under bed mounting to leave a flat bed. Just a matter of which brand you like best. Any will do the job well for you.

RE: How to mount flat screen ??

I agree that you will need additional support. That is probably no more than 1/8" thick paneling. If you can locate the studs behind you can attach a piece of hardwood plywood finished to blend in with the rest of the woodwork to attach the mount. If you can remove the edge trim you can probably remove that piece of paneling and see exactly what is behind it.

RE: 30A breaker on 50A receptacle?

You can always use a breaker rated lower than the outlet it is servicing. Just not the other way around.

RE: slow wifi

Not unusual to have good signal strength and park wifi is still so slow as to be barely useable. Have not found many parks with good high speed wifi.

RE: Boarding dog in Chama New Mexico

If it has bad reviews, why do you want to risk it? :h For me it would depend on the content that f the reviews. Many people more typically leave their pets at "resorts". So if they don't get play time, individual one on one time, snack time, air conditioning, etc the reviews are going to be poor.
