RE: Mixed Tire Types

I would prefer to have all tires the same. But as long as the bias ply is the same diameter as the radials I would not worry about it. Checking the date on all tires is certainly a good idea.

RE: Build quality

You may get a great one with any of those. And you may get a problem one with any of those. Reading posts here over the long term will verify that. Basically a cr@p shoot.

RE: San Antonio

Depends on your primary interest I guess. Travelers World RV Resort is a short distance south of downtown and the Riverwalk and on a main route to drive straight there. Or catch a bus in front of the park also to go directly downtown. We prefer to drive and found it easy to park within a block of the Riverwalk. One of the better restored missions on the Mission Trail is just south of the park. And a Walmart just south of that if you need to restock.

RE: Propane on while driving- refrigerator

Agree with above. Been debated repeatedly here. I think the majority of us leave it on. But there are also those who argue to turn it off. You will not get a final answer here. Do a search here for the subject if you want infinite reading. Or just do what you are comfortable with.

RE: New DISH Subscriber With Questions

Yes, OTA is great, when available. But we have stayed in a number of areas too far from OTA transmitters to get anything but small town stations with off the wall programming. No major network stations. And no park cable. In this cases local network programming via sat are the only option. When a CSR wants a physical address I just tell them 100 highway # (whatever the nearest highway is) and the zip or town name. Has always worked. I guess every town with a highway has an address of 100.

RE: gooseneck vs fifth wheel hitch

Buying new make sure using a gooseneck adapter will not void your warranty. It does apply a different set of stresses on the trailer frame. 1st, I have not used a gooseneck. Primary advantage of gooseneck as I see it is the flat bed when unhooked. Hitching can be a little more difficult as you must have the ball nearly directly under the hitch before lowering the trailer. And you may be required to use safety chains connected to the truck bed. May be hard to see ball from driver's seat when getting truck in position. For 5th wheel hitch you can still have a flat bed after unhooking, but only if you remove the hitch from the bed. Hooking up is not as precise as you can be off a couple inches either direction and it will self align as you back into the hitch. I can easily see my 5th wheel hitch from driver's seat, but I am fairly tall. Been debated a lot and there are many who much prefer the gooseneck. I would say the warranty issue would be the primary concern.

RE: decals are turning up on the edges bin

I just removed the decals from the front of mine. Nice shiny white image where each piece was, and dull white all around. But in my case that was great. I used those images to make it easy to install new decals where the old ones came off. Don't get too aggressive with polishing compound.

RE: RV Repair Time-Frame

Anything more than a few weeks to a couple months would be too long to me for anything short of a very major repair. Then maybe three months.

RE: what Hitch

There are many who have towed for years with short bed and no slider and never a problem. There are also those who have knocked out a back window or dented a cab.

RE: 20 " tires

20" tires on current F350 and on previous F350 both towing 35' 5er. No problems at all. I like the 20" wheels appearance. But yes the tires are more expensive.

RE: another tire question

LTs on my 5er for 7 yrs and no problem. That is what I will replace the current ones with. A couple moves forward and back and the tires straighten right up.

RE: Extra 50 amp extension?

7 years and never needed one. UNTIL. In August we were at the KOA in Eureka Springs and the power pedestal was near the front of the particular site we were in and my trailer connection is on the rear. Cord would not reach without pulling very near the front of the site. KOA employee saw my problem and said I could borrow his 50 amp extension. Great personal service. Outside temp was hot and I needed the 50 to run both A/Cs. I plan to buy a 50 amp extension even though I may not need it any time soon.

RE: porch plans for fifth wheel

I don't know about plans. But if you google rv porch you will see lots of links for both home made and commercial porches and steps.

RE: Condensation line behind refrigerator

I still need to do mine. So it would be good to hear back on how well it works for you. And any gotcha's you find along the way.

RE: Tires again

There are different opinions. Some say 5 yrs. Some say 7 yrs. No more miles than you put on them and the tires look good I would go another 2 yrs checking them regularly.

RE: RVing with two service dogs at RV parks

Your own statement is the best one. You are going to get lots of personal opinions here, but nothing with any legal standing. If you are that determined to stay there, you will probably have to hire a lawyer to force the issue. Assuming it could even be forced. And then where does that put you with management, and possibly other residents. My opinion? Just move on. Find a place where are welcome. Life will be so much better.

RE: Is this normal?

If it is noted in writing that the $200 would be applied to the loan if approved, or refunded if the loan was not approved, then I would not have a problem with it. If not, then I would not do business with them. I can understand a dealer wanting some assurance the potential buyer was serious and not just window shopping or checking available credit.

RE: Condensation line behind refrigerator

I am needing to replace mine also. It is apparently possible to replace the hose without removing the fridge. That is what I plan to attempt first. See this link. Pulling the fridge will be my last option.

RE: Changing Tires

Sort of depends on the amount of travel you have in your suspension. With ours with the Mor/ryde IS don't think it would work. Someone posted a picture recently of their trailer with one wheel on the ramp and the other sitting solidly on the ground. I think it was the Mor/ryde suspension. Just too much suspension travel.

RE: San Antonio in early Febuary ?

Travelers World RV Resort is also a good choice. And popular with snowbirds. A little ways south of downtown and also on a bus line direct to downtown and the Riverwalk. One of the missions on the Mission Trail is only a mile or so away.
