RE: Why so many late model Thor's for sale?

What Ralph Cramden said. All a matter of numbers. The higher market share for the new sales numbers, the more used ones of that brand that will hit the used for sale market.

RE: Realilistic mileage with a fifthwheel.

9-11.5 with our rig What my 2012 F350 6.7 towing high profile 35' 5er at 65-70 does, varying by terrain and weather conditions.

RE: Black and gray sewer valves open or closed

Closed. No reason to allow access to critters. Agree.

RE: Looking for snow advice - POSITIVE COMMENTS ONLY

My advice would be leave now and get there quick. The weather forecast for Durango for the next 7 days is highs in the 40s/50s with no precip. That will put you on dry highways to get there and get set up. After that the temps drop and possible precipitation. And once there, do not leave until you have a forecast of several travel days of no snow. Go thru Santa Fe and up, or Albuquerque and up. Do not go thru Raton/Walsenburg/Alamosa and the associated passes. I would not recommend you even go if there is snow in the forecast for your travel dates. I agree your biggest problem may be the temperatures, teens and sub teens. Have you checked to see what is available as far as RV parks open? In Texas when it snows, and it sometimes does, the ones you find in ditches and wrapped around phone poles are the transplanted Yankees who "know how to drive on ice and snow." .................. During my working life I traveled a lot to northern states. Invariably during the annual snow storms there the streets and highways were clogged with accidents. When I said that I thought they knew how to drive in it up there, the answer was "No, we just tell you southerners that. We are as bad as anyone else, especially during the early year storms."

RE: Fresh water drain keystone alpine

Don't have an Alpine, but my Keystone Montana has a small pipe hanging down a few inches with a white plastic cap near the rear of the trailer. Remove the cap and it drains the fresh water tank.

RE: Warning I-20 Closure

Good information. But before blindly heading off on some alternate route, take a look at google maps. It shows highways green when no problem, orange when a slowdown, red for a major slowdown, and dark red for basically at a standstill. You can tell pretty much exactly how far back the problem is and make a decision on whether to reroute or not. And how far you can go before rerouting. And if the alternate is also backed up. I find the information very accurate and use it when traveling to make my decisions on whether to reroute or grin and bear it.

RE: Awning light only getting 8.5v

Where exactly did you measure the 8.5 volts? And what did you connect the battery cables to? Both hot and ground? Or just one or the other? I agree it is probably a poor (high resistance) connection somewhere. You should be able to pretty easily find out whether it is the hot side or ground side and troubleshoot from there.

RE: Austin Texas to Fayetteville Arkansas

Sounds like you are not in a particular hurry. Based on that assumption I would take US 79 from Austin to US 59 at Carthage. US 59 to Texarkana. Then US 71 to Ft Smith and I-49 on up to Fayetteville. Been a lot of years since I have been on those roads so maybe someone else can comment on current conditions. But that gets you thru much prettier country than taking the faster route of I-35/US75/US69/I-40/I-49. There are also a number of other options for going thru east Texas and either western Arkansas or eastern Oklahoma that others can comment on.

RE: F250 hitch rings

Have never had a problem with hooks on my F350 with a TT, or two utility trailers. But it is typically easier to put the hooks thru the holes from the bottom than thru from the top. As for as the shackles, I can't say.

RE: Colorado Trip Campground Ideas

July is a really busy RV time across southern Colorado, and the rest of the state for that matter. I prefer reservations in advance so that I know I will have a site waiting. Many people do not want to be held to a strict schedule. You should at least call ahead as soon as you know where you want to spend the night. Even at that you may not get your first, or even second, choice. I would not recommend starting to look for a place late in the afternoon. I use rvparkreviews.com to check possible RV parks that I may try. There are other sites to get ratings also. Don’t know where you are starting from, but Pensacola to Denver is 1,500 miles or 3 long 10-12 hour days on the road. And that just gets you from the tip of FL to the front range of the Rockies. 3 days back leaves you only 8-9 days to cover a lot more miles with little time to spend at each site.

RE: Pix

Use rv.net picture posting service. pic posting Not a hosting service. But easy for posting here. Does it re-size or must I do that? That is what Tiny did..it is something I have struggled with. What sizes to put in. Gary I simply upload a picture, copy the link, paste it in the box for inserting a picture, add 600 as the width, and it has always worked fine.

RE: Colorado Trip Campground Ideas

In addition to above, what kind of "campground" are you looking for? Primitive campgrounds with little to no hookups? Full service RV parks? Something in between?

RE: How many miles have you towed in one day?

We have done over 500 a number of times on the first day to get on down the road. But nothing close on subsequent days. Over 10 hours is definitely a long time in the truck. Often on trips that long, the DW will drive part of the way to break up the monotony. It is only "too long" or "too far" if it is "too long" or "too far" for YOU or your wife, not what everyone else thinks.

RE: Questions about "Closed" topics

Something has changed around here. I used to to 6 or 7 pages of threads and now only 2 on a regular basis. Definitely true that participation is down, even with RV sales at record highs. My link automatically opens to NEWEST, which list all new topics posted within the last 24 hours. There was a time a few years ago when that was consistently 9-10 pages. That has slowly declined to where it is now 2-3 pages, no matter the time of year.

RE: Fifth-wheel Questions.

........ For the ones that I thought were large 60% were SRW. It appeared to me that the older rigs were pulled by DRW and the newer ones by SRW. I was surprised at how many 3/4 ton pickups that were towing big fifth-wheels. ........... The manufacturers boost the payload ratings just about every year, so a newer truck will have a higher load rating than the same truck of several years earlier. Of course, many people simply exceed the truck rating, knowingly or not. There should be a tire and loading tag on the drivers side door post with something like "cargo and people should not exceed xxxx pounds".

RE: Fifth-wheel Questions.

I honestly don’t see how the numbers for a 42 footer could fit the numbers for a 2500. I would expect the LOADED pin weight to be quite a bit over 3,000 lbs. Does your 2500 have that payload rating?

RE: Firefox and a search engine

Thanks for all the help. It was an add-on titled make yahoo the default search engine that Firefox had apparently added without my approval. Removed it and all is well. It was not that I disliked yahoo. It was that Firefox was forcing me to use it against what I wanted.

RE: Questions about "Closed" topics

Most common reasons Duplicate post, Turns into a bickering contest, Turns to personal attacks, Goes completely off topic, Posts become so repetitive there is nothing new being posted to that topic, Several pages of post and OP never returns, or at least never responds
