RE: posted pages

The new posts of the last 24 hours are shown. Yeah, there used to be up to 10 pages, but now typically 5-6. Participation must be down. Clicking on active posts shows more pages. But still just for the last 24 hours.

RE: Fifth Wheel vs. Class A Motorhome

To me it comes downtown how much you intend to travel. If you intend to move a lot and put a lot of miles on it, then MH. If you are more likely to stay a long time at each destination and only travel a relatively few miles each year, then 5er.

RE: I20 thru Texas in December

Winter storms along I-20 in December are relatively rare. But it happens. But the same is true for I-10, especially after you get west of San Antonio. Best bet is to watch the weather forecast for several days ahead and plan your travel accordingly. The good thing is that any ice/snow that may occur rarely lasts more than 2 days on the roadways. The odds of it being 65 degrees is greater than it being 25 degrees.

RE: Dish Tailgater - I don't like!

As long as I can find a reasonable size hole thru the trees in the direction of the sats, my Tailgater does fine. I use the dishformyrv app to locate a hole to see the sats, but still sometimes have to move it a little one way or the other. But much better, at least for me, than trying to aim my 1000.4 tripod mount.

RE: Roadside assistance suggestions?

After reading many posts expressing problems/complaints and the occasional praise over a long period of time about the several ERS companies I decided to go with coach-net. But have not had to use it yet so can't say if I made a good choice or not.

RE: I35 heads up TexasI

We travel I-35 from north of Dallas to Georgetown both directions several times each year. Did last month and will again this weekend. There is major construction on the near north side of Ft Worth that really can slow traffic. Lane shifts and temporary exit signs can really be confusing. And they are doing complete rebuilding of large sections of I-35 from Hillsboro to south of Salado. Eventually they will rebuild all of it. The sections they have completed are great. The sections they are working on are variable as there is often temporary pavement around the areas under construction. But they do a very good job of keeping traffic moving (except Ft Worth). Barring an accident or lane realignment traffic typically moves at or above the posted limit. Sometimes scarily so.

RE: How many have a ....

Have one. Put it out a few times. But not in quite a while.

RE: Microwave or Convection Microwave

We love our convection microwave. We sometimes use both the regular oven and the convection oven at the same time if we are cooking more than will fit in one or if we are cooking two things that require different temperatures.

RE: Pin Box Modification- Update

Can't really say about the integrity, but there have been a number of posts from those who have done it. Don't remember how they cut it though.

RE: Dish Tailgater

Ours has sat out in high winds including thunder storms and has never blown over.

RE: Slideouts stop and start

They are actually auto reset circuit breakers. And that is a common problem with them. Cheap (and cheaply made) and easy to replace. Available at RV stores and many auto parts stores. If you are not already a member, join the Montana Owners Club forum for all things Montana.

RE: Different forces acting on axles?

You click on advanced post form below. When that opens there is an icon (labeled link if you move your cursor over it) to click on. You put in the url, give it a name, and click finished. The same form will open if you quote someone.

RE: Which is easier to maneuver, 25ft+20ft, or pickup+30ft FW?

Because a 5th wheel pivot point in above the rear axle and it tracks inside the wheel tracks of the truck, you cannot take as tight of a turn as a bumper pull. Think of semis that have to swing wide on tight corners to avoid jumping the curb. With bumper pulls and the pivot point behind the tow vehicle, it lessens that problem. Difference in trailer lengths also factors into the turn.

RE: How far do you go in a day?

I don't particularly like to but we do 10-11 hour days occasionally if we have to due to schedule.

RE: Camping World SALE pricing

Same around here. Ethanol alcohol based antifreeze is much cheaper than propylene glycol based. Make sure you are not comparing apples to oranges.

RE: 5th wheel hitch

Sounds as though you are looking at a used truck that already has the rails installed. Correct? If so, do you know what hitch was previously installed?

RE: Can a tire explode from Over-inflation?

Probably someone with no gauge, or did not take the time to find it. Yep, that looks about right.

Regular and routine see who blinks first face off.

RE: Electric fireplace

GFCI outlets are designed to trip due to ground faults, not over current. Your "little medical machine" may have a problem. Try it and see if it trips it again.
