RE: New Tow Rig Ordered!

I really like the navigation system on my 2012 F350. Much better than the Garmin sitting on the dash. Large easy to read screen with lane change information displayed on upcoming turns/exits. And no fiddling with a phone trying to see google maps. And I disagree with being difficult to update. Just order a new DVD, pop it in the system, and it updates the maps and POIs. I do it every couple years on the current and previous trucks and SUVs we have owned. Only downside is the $199 they charge for the DVD. Factory hitch prep - definitely. Great if you ever do get a 5er. And unseen if you don't. Tailgate step - love it. My old body doesn't get up like it used to. Moon roof - I really like it, but I do not carry anything on the roof. PTO - not for me.

RE: Regens in F350 often

My 2012 6.7 does the same thing. Go a while with few regens. Then it suddenly start regens frequently for a while. Then back to less frequent. It does do more if I go some time with few highway miles. I too can tow the 5er for hours and not see a regens.

RE: Elevation App?

Although elevation is a factor, grade is the more important number if you are concerned about climbs. A lower elevation pass may have a steeper grade (and harder climb) than a higher pass.

RE: WAlmarts with wine?

Wally wine! Hah. For those to whom the thought of Walmart wine is funny. They have done blind tastings with supposed wine experts tasting wines from the $3 Oakleaf to various wines up to the $30 range and the Oakleaf came out at or near the top. A blow to the wine snobs I am sure. I know nothing about wines sold at Walmart and merely laugh at the People of WM websites but if you've a link to the tasting I'd love to see it just to keep my knowledge level up:). Trying to find links to the stories. Was a popular media subject a few years ago when Walmart wine was "discovered".

To the OP. Understanding the phenomenon of big truck bow waves.

RE: WAlmarts with wine?

I have seen Oakleaf wine at every Walmart that I have visited the wine section. I think ones that do not sell it are the exception, except those of course that are not allowed to sell alcohol at all. It was, and may still be, an exclusive Walmart brand.

RE: Should I subscribe to GSRA or not?

I would difinitely get one of the ERS plans. Good Sam, Coachnet, and AAA are probably the most common although there are other options also. Do your research and flip a coin.

RE: Big truck woes

I think a heavier truck will be your ultimate solution. Weight of the trailer aside, 38' is a long trailer for a lighter truck. More side surface area of the trailer means the more a passing truck is going to affect you. The more weight your truck has will help offset that. You may still need the WDH if the larger truck sags too much from the tongue weight.

RE: CHINA why the reliance regarding RV parts & accessories

A momentary blip on the radar screen. In a few months it will be all but forgotten. Until the next blip comes along.

RE: TT VS 5 th w

Guesses. Less expensive on average. Smaller on average. Can be towed with cars, SUVs, and smaller trucks. Less intimidating to new RVers. Although my unscientific counting has not shown nearly that discrepancy.

RE: Automatic satellite

Just remember that if you frequently stay at parks with lots of trees, with a permanently mounted antenna it may be difficult, or impossible, to get reception. With a portable you can often find a hole thru the trees that you could not position the RV to be able to do.

RE: So you are sitting by the fire, and you hear

Sit back and enjoy their serenade. 3 or 4 can sound like 15 of 20. We live in the country and hear them (and occasionally see them) all the time.

RE: Question on storing a LED TV

They may not FREEZE but there is a permissible temperature storage range. Temperature storage limits

RE: LaVeta Pass

Assuming your tow vehicle has adequate power, I agree it should be no problem. Traveling west bound it is a long and fairly steep climb up the east side. Going down the west side is not as steep. We tow our 5er that way every year. The previous 2007 F350 6.0 diesel was straining by the time we reached the top and would be down to 50 mph or less. The current 2012 F350 6.7 handles it much easier. Any concern about power and you can go west at Pueblo, over to Poncha Springs, and south to Alamosa. Not as steep that way and still a good road.

RE: Microwave problem

Our Apollo Half Time convection/microwave does the same thing when microwaving. It actually has an AUTO DRY button on it that runs the convection for a couple minutes to dry that moisture.

RE: sound on TV'S

Is this a new problem that just started on an existing TV? Or a new TV? Are you on cable? Satellite? OTA?

RE: Good Evening campers... How do you light up the night?

Camped next to someone a couple weeks ago. They had various colored lights around and a spinning "disco ball" flashing light beams thru the tree branches. My only thought was WHY? :S

RE: Tripod for 5er

JT Strong Arms. Don't waste your money on a tripod. Yep. Skip the tripod and put JTs or one of the other strut systems on the jacks and rear stabs. You will not be sorry. Some buy the tripods. Many sell or give them away later.
