RE: forums.goodsamclub.com Gone?

Works for me. May have been down for maintenance when you tried.

RE: Do I leave HDTV + Home theater in TT during winter?

Check your manuals. Most specify min/max operating temp ranges and min/max storage temp ranges.

RE: Should I use cruise control while towing a travel trailer

Depends on your tow vehicle. If it has the power to maintain speed without up/down shifting on every slight incline, then go for it. Mine has no problem at all. But it is an F350 6.7 diesel towing a 12,000 lb 5er. And the tow/haul feature helps prevent unnecessary up/down shifting.

RE: Where can I find RV traveling companions..

We also stayed at an RV park where the Sister on the Fly were having a rally. A bunch of crazy ladies having a ball. But there are other groups for singles also, such as lonersonwheels.com, openroadsingles.com, rv-singles.com. Google singles rv groups.

RE: Scam ?? Virus ???

Any time you get a suspicious e-mail, click on the sender's name and see who it actually came from. Not unusual to for the actual e-mail address to be completely different than the name in the FROM box. Mine go to the junk or spam (not trash) bin without opening anything.

RE: Most RELIABLE Diesel 1 Ton Truck???

We all have our preferences. But in reality, any of the big 3 within the last 4-5 years will all be about the same reliability wise. Just a matter of which YOU like the best.

RE: OK, Washer and Dryer in your RV...Do you use them?

We have a vented combo unit and use it regularly. DW only uses a laundromat if we have a lot of laundry to do at the time. Although most laundrys at RV parks are fairly well kept, we have encountered some we would never consider using. DW would give up me before she gave up her washer/dryer.

RE: Analog TV in my 2006 Hitchhiker

My old 27" TV had both an analog input and a digital input. But the thing weighed about 40 lbs. I replaced it with a 32" LED TV. It is wider than the opening, but so thin that it mounts easily to the front of the cabinet without a problem. From this: https://i.imgur.com/Nia2bggl.jpg To this: https://i.imgur.com/7nnqVL2l.jpg

RE: How much should I expect to pay for a 5th wheel hitch?

You have a long bed so do not need a slider hitch. Short bed trucks sometimes need those for cab clearance on tight turns. Above prices are about right for standard hitches. Air ride hitches (those with air bags) are much higher.

RE: Analog TV in my 2006 Hitchhiker

Recycle those old ones and get some new LED TVs. The prices have fallen so low it is no longer a big investment. And the full width HD pictures are infinitely better. The existing antenna should work. My 2007 does.

RE: Through Dallas & Houston. Am I nuts?

I am like you. I would rather just grin and bear it and go straight thru than take longer slower roundabout bypasses thru small towns. They have completed a lot of construction on I-35E, but still a lot going on. But barring an accident, traffic typically moves well thru Dallas mid day. Sometimes too fast for my liking. They recently completed the new I35E/I-30 interchange downtown. So watch the signs carefully. But that should improve the transition from I35E to I-45. Can't speak for Houston.

RE: Uber expensive pickups...how much of a trend ?

That's why they make and XL, XLT, Lariat, Platinum, King Ranch, etc. People can buy what they want. Same drive train and surrounding metal in all trim levels. You can get in relatively inexpensive. Or very expensive. Just a matter of how many bells and whistles you want. And those do get expensive. But it appears, except for work trucks, the higher trim levels far out sell the lower end ones. What the customer wants, the manufacturer builds.

RE: Tire Pressure Monitors

Seems the TST 507 is the most popular one. I am happy with it. But others are also happy with other brands such as Tireminder, Tiretracker, EEZMinder, etc. Since you own a Montana, go over and join the Montana Owners Club (MOC) forum for Montana specific questions.

RE: Which Hitch?

Depends a lot on your 5er. Newer 5ers with contoured front corners to enhance turning ability reduces need for a slider. Older squared off front corners increase the need. Good friend knocked out his Chevy 2500 back window on a tight back in turn with his older 5er with no slider. Bought a newer 5er with contoured front corners and didn't knock out any more windows using the same hitch. But he was also much more careful. I hope you know you are going to be very limited on choices of 5ers you can tow with that truck and stay within the truck's ratings.

RE: Fredrickburg or kerrville TX RV park

In Kerrville we also liked Schreiner park. Not a traditional RV park. Former state park, now city park with lots of room. And deer come grazing thru the sites. We prefer the hill side, over the river side. Guadalupe RV Resort is also a nice, but higher priced park, on the Guadalupe River. Fredericksburg KOA (3 miles east), Fredericksburg RV Park (right in town), and Lady Bird Park (about 2 miles south) all get good reviews.

RE: aluminum or magnesium anode rod

I put in an aluminum one and after 3 years it was barely corroded. Didn't seem to be doing much. So I went back to magnesium.

RE: Refurbishing a 5th wheel reese hitch

I might hit it lightly with sand paper before painting it with Rust-Oleum Rust Reformer paint. That will not require yearly repaint. But if it is a really old hitch, I would buy a new one.

RE: Carlsbad to Albuquerque

I towed our 35' hi profile 5er the opposite direction a couple yrs ago. From Albuquerque south on I-25 to US 380 east to Roswell (we did detour thru Ruidosa), US 285 south to Carlsbad. No problem at all for that size RV.
