RE: Tow Speed excess!

Likely is the norm for those guys doing deliveries. Probably paid by unit delivery, so time is money. But that one may have cost him more than it is was worth.

RE: 5th wheel hitch installation question in Ford pucks

I have an F350 with the factory hitch prep and a Reese Elite hitch. When I first installed the hitch, I also had a small amount of movement. But after following the directions in the hitch manual to take up the slack, it fits snug now.

RE: Careful all... tailgate thieves are out and about

I put a hose clamp on mine several years ago. Turned it so the screw is in the least accessible position. And put a glob of epoxy on that screw head. They may still get it. But less likely as it will take some time and effort. And time is not their friend.

RE: Disgruntled Millennials on the Road

We see a LOT of people your age in RV parks when we travel. But most of those are families on vacation. Not many that age have the luxury to full time and travel.

RE: I need some help!!! (deciding on a rv)

Not laughing. More like grimacing. That is averaging over 250 miles per day, every day. Something like 5 hours on the road, figuring average of 50 mph counting stops for fuel, food, rest. Prices will be according to brand initial sell price (high end to economy), condition, owner's opinion of his value (frequently overly optimistic), etc. if you are not familiar with RVs in general and motorhomes in particular, have any rig you are considering looked over by someone who is.

RE: Taking dog with us on a cross country tour

It depends on the dog. A high energy, high strung dog who barks at the slightest outside noise would be a problem. A number of times we have been near an RV with a dog or dogs that would start barking as soon as the owners left and not stop until they returned. Our dog (and previous dog) is an older Golden. And a slug. When we leave, she goes into the darkest corner of the bedroom, tucks her face under the bedspread, and sleeps. And that is where we find her when we return. Even in a noisy park.

RE: Dish Satellite Again

I know a lot of people move their receivers from home to the RV and back. But I would just buy the extra receiver for the RV and add it to the home account for $7/month and get the same programming in the RV you have at home and not mess with disconnecting and reconnecting. The dishformyrv.com web site lists the Wally but not the Hopper. I assume there is a reason for that.Why would you do that when it takes less than a minute to disconnect the Hopper 3 and Joey and put it in the RV? Then you have a 16 tuner DVR with all the shows you previously recorded and no extra fee. If you are aiming a dish manually you may as well take the equipment that you are paying for. If you can disconnect your Hopper 3 and Joey, take them to the RV, and reconnect in less than one minute, then you are one amazing man. We don't need 16 tuners when in the RV. We watch a little TV during the day during downtime, a little at night, and the 10 pm news/weather. I suppose those who spend most of their time inside might want it. But we are more likely to be outside hiking, biking, fishing, or sightseeing.

RE: Tow Vehicle 7-Way Plug Emulator

Aww, come on. After all that work you used a permanent marker to label the switches? :B

RE: KOA at Eureka Springs Ar

It has also been a number of years since we stayed there, but would again. Nothing special, but certainly nothing bad either.

RE: Is this really the only 5th wheel hitch option?

My Dealer said I had to sign a waiver to exclude them from liability if I opted not to have a slider and that's a decent price. What a load of ****. Dealers are such crooks. Nope. Dealer installs hitch he knows may allow the 5er to hit cab. Warns driver. Driver makes tight turn and damages cab. Driver sues dealer for negligence. Fact of life.

RE: Nut and Bolt or Self Tapping Screw?

I installed JT Strongarm stabilizers on my 5er using 1/2" self tapping bolts per their instructions. 9 yrs ago and all are still tight.

RE: Montana model 2611 TV Amplifier button

Go over to the Montana Owners Club forum and ask. Most likely someone there has the same model.

RE: Choosing city water or fresh water tank

If the pump is "on" and the city water pressure falls below the threshold pressure that the pump is set for then the pump will turn on. X2. Although I never leave my pump on when connected to park water. The only switch I have is to switch from NORMAL (meaning normal water flow from the park faucet to the trailer) to FILL (meaning fill the fresh water tank from the faucet).

RE: 2017 F-350 DRW 0-60 testing

My only question would be why? ......... My thoughts exactly. Must be that crowd the loves to blow black smoke taking off from a traffic light to see who can get to the next red light the fastest.

RE: Overloading a pickup from time to time - a tradition?

We live in a semi rural area just outside a rapidly growing town. And see both farmers/ranchers with large round hay bails hanging on hay spikes off the back of severely sagging pickups and contractors with overloaded pickup beds or heavily loaded trailers again sagging the rear of their trucks. And of course, there is the occasional TT or 5er on a less than adequate truck, also sagging. Just normal everyday sights.

RE: Is PA "warning" Rvers. (license).

Texas statutes do differentiate between commercial (CDL) and non commercial with the following statute exception; Recreational vehicles driven for personal use (although a CDL is not required, individuals must obtain the proper license class for the vehicle weight)
