RE: Total loss, adjuster wants copy of title prior to settlement

I agree with give him a copy. If there is a lien holder then he has to settle with both of you. If you have clear title , then no problem. But he has to verify it either way, not take your word for it. Pretty straight forward. Hold the original until settlement.

RE: Transmission woes

Can you get it to start making the noise? If so, then take it out driving until you hear it, then go directly to the shop, leave it running, and go get the mechanic to ride with you and hear it himself. It is near impossible for someone to fix a problem that they can't hear for themselves.

RE: Regulator question

The pigtail does have a ball valve inside to restrict flow until the line pressure equalizes to guard against an open line. And it can fail. Opening the valve too fast can cause the restricted flow, but the valve is supposed to let a small amount of flow bypass it until the line equalizes and then release the valve. But the pigtail is relatively easy and fairly inexpensive to replace to see if that is the problem. Do you have a small high pressure regulator valve between that tank and the switch over regulator valve? If so, it is possible there is a problem with that valve. Another easy and inexpensive thing to replace.

RE: Pin box?

While one of the pin boxes you named can soften the ride, there is no problem towing with the standard pin box.

RE: Carlsbad NM to Big Spring TX

We took the 62/180/87 route two years ago. Good road.

RE: 240V split phase inverter

Don't know what his intent is. But a split phase system can use a common neutral wire that is the same size as each hot wire. A system with two hots in phase trying to use a common neutral would need a neutral wire with twice the ampacity rating of the hot wires.

RE: Kansas City to Phoenix

Once you reach OKC, there are two options. I-40 to I-25 at Albuquerque, tthen south to I-10, or I-35 to I-820 in Ft Worth, west to I-20 to I-10. Not a significant difference in distance. I would just watch the weather forecast closely, chose your route accordingly, and be prepared to have to stop for a day or two if a winter storm is approaching. It is possible for there to be a storm on I-40 and not on I-20, and vice versa. I would tend toward the I-40/I-25 to avoid Ft Worth and El Paso. But weather forecasts would determine that.

RE: 240V split phase inverter

I know nothing about the brands, but if you google 240 v split phase inverter 12v you will find some.

RE: Fueling at truck stops

Previous posts have shown charts that name brands (Gulf, Shell, Exxon, etc) typically have a higher cetane rating than truck stops such as Pilot and Flying J and the "generic" brands like Sam's, grocery stores, Racetrack, Quick Trip, etc.

RE: Social Security question/help

If you are in your 60's, married, and in good health, there is a good chance one or both of you will live into your late 80's or even 90's. In that case, waiting pays off well. And if the man (typically the higher wage earner) dies first, the wife will benefit even more drawing from his higher SS payments. I considered waiting until 70, but started at 66 (full retirement age). DW started drawing from mine at 66 while she is delaying drawing from her own until 70 to allow it to increase. She draws slightly less by drawing from mine, but will draw considerably more when she starts on hers. No guarantees of course, but good health and old age runs in both families. Agree with above. Demise of SS has been predicted by the doomsayers for decades. It is a rare financial adviser that recommends taking early without extenuating circumstances.

RE: Stability issues in 5th wheel

Another vote for JTs. They took most (but not all) the shake out of ours. Make sure you follow the set up instructions to get maximum stability from them.

RE: Fueling at truck stops

The truck islands are not just diesel only, they are also high flow pumps. Is the high flow OK for RVs? Yes, but you may have to squeeze the handle just a little to keep the flow rate low or it may be trying to come back at you.

RE: 23 Months and no license plates or title!

Posting here is a good start. Also send the same information to Trailer Life Magazine. The more bad publicity you can generate for Camping World the more likely someone with higher authority will step in and resolve the situation.

RE: Is This Enough Truck for 5th Wheel??

That Ram truck will be easily pull that 5er. As would an equivalent GM or Ford 2500/250 diesel. 4x4 is an option. I have 4x4 but in 9 yrs have never used 4x4 while towing the 5er.

RE: Cold nights in Branson

Does the High Country have a heated underbelly like the regular Montana? If so, you should be ok as long as the furnace is on and the trailer stays warm. Your only problem may be the incoming water line will likely freeze unless you have a heated fresh water hose. If not, you could fill your fresh water tank, and disconnect your fresh water hose, and run off the pump. I would not let the water trickle. You would need to leave the grey tank valve open if it trickled very fast, and the water trickling out the tank may freeze solid inside your sewer hose.

RE: Dillions

Around here dealers will match, or at least come close, to local competitors prices. Try it. End of December is a great time for bargaining as dealers are trying to make end of year numbers.

RE: power cords and options to carry

I have the standard heavy 50 amp power cord, and a 50 to 30 adapter. And also a 30 to 20 amp adapter. But after staying in a number of parks that had only 30 amp service, I bought a 25' 30 amp cord with a 50 amp connector at the RV end. It is so much lighter and easier to handle (especially in cold weather) than the 50 amp cord that it is my preferred cord if we will not be needing A/C.

RE: Electric Fireplace

I am guessing you will not find one that small. Even the smallest in the link I posted is quite a bit larger than that.

RE: Suburban SW6DE Water Heater 120VAC Side

There was someone recently posted about going thru the same thing with similar symptoms, HOT as far as he could trace. In his case, it was a loose neutral wire in the junction box on the back of the water heater.

RE: Pin box 5th Airborne 5th. wheel

It's going to depend on pin weight. Mine only takes about 60 psi to reach the fill to here line. Also, as I remember, you can move the air bag to different holes to account for a range of pin weights from light to heavy. Definitely a good idea to check at the start of a new season and periodically afterward.
