Hankook tires

Anyone running Hankook tires on your tow vehicle, especially their Dynapro ATM RF-10 tire? I have a dually with 17" wheels, and my tire guy is recommending this tire.

Photography clubs?

Have any of you been at an RV park that had a photography club? Our resort has a ton of amateur photographers, some very very talented, and I'm trying to come up with an informal way to encourage "cross-training" and sharing of ideas, show off our work, etc. I'm no "organizer" so I'm just looking for what might have worked in other parks.

RE: Is it important to get dual pane windows?

Get them. ABSOLUTELY get them, since you spend time in warm envornments.

Membership Card

I've been a member for several years now, and my "Good Sam Club" card was always a nice sturdy plastic card with nice graphics that was easy to find in my wallet. Today I got my new card. It's cheap flimsy paper and the ink is already smearing. If this is a first class organization, then why does the membership card, the only "visible" evidence I carry, look like a disposable discount coupon from Burger King?

To eat a really good burger, you need a nurse in attendance. http://www.heartattackgrill.com/images/scale.png

RE: Out it went!

On our first rig (Cougar 274RKS) we hated, ABSOLUTELY HATED, the booth dinette. It is so much more convenient and flexible to have a moveable table and dining chairs! Especially with the goofy couch/bed gone.

RE: Out it went!

RE: Chevy Duramax Fuel mileage

I have an '08 3500HD dually 4x4, 6 speed Allison Pulling 14K camper at speeds around 65, my MPG averages 10 (sometimes higher, sometimes lower). Running empty on highway my average is 17.5. Combined city/highway, about 15. My previous DMax was an '03 2500HD 2WD, 5 speed Allison. Towing mileage (same camper) average MPG was 11. Running empty on interstates, average MPG was 20. Combined city/highway about 17.

RE: Level fifth

Any time you're stacking material for "blocking up" a load for stability, the height should be the smallest dimension, and the "load" should be centered on the stack.

RE: Sliding Hitch or not

I have a long-bed dually, so I don't need a slider for the usual reason (protect truck window in tight turns), but I have a manual slider anyhow, AND a Sidewinder replacement pinbox on the camper. Why? Now backing maneuvers are essentially the same as backing a tag trailer. SO much easier!

RE: Out it went!

Didn't keep any part of it in the camper. The resulting space now serves any purpose, such as put up a folding table for wife sewing, more room around the dining table when company comes, but mostly to give the living area a much more spacious feel.

Out it went!

Our camping trailer came with the usual couch-which-folds-out-into-an-uncomfortable-bed. Hardly ever did any one sit on it, and the occasional sleep-over cursed the fact if they had to sleep on it a second night. It is big, takes up valuable room, and frankly it sucks. Out it went! Now the camper is much more open and livable, we store a queen-sized inflatable bed underneath (much more comfortable, and goes away when not in use) for the infrequent overnight guest. Shoulda done it years ago!

RE: The dreaded bedroom slide crack-----UPDATED

My rig is 10 years old, just developed a hairline crack at the lower forward corner of the b/r slide. Ran a router v-bit and filled with silicone putty, then fashioned a trim plate. Looks like it was built that way.

RE: Replacing Recliners in my 5th wheel

One day we had e eureka moment. Maybe twice a year someone sits on that damned couch. It's big and it cramps our camper. Out it went!

RE: Replacing Recliners in my 5th wheel

We bought a pair of these for our camping trailer. Liked them so well we bought another pair for the house. http://thebackstore.com/scansit-110.html http://thebackstore.com/catalog/product/gallery/id/63258/image/4309/

RE: Diesel vs gas......................

I just realized the other day (Maybe for the second time since I don't drive the truck very often) that my F250 doesn't have a redline on the tach. Why not?! Come to think of it my Chev doesn't either (I don't think). My previous one had two red-lines, a low one (3500?) to observe when pulling, and another much higher one related to grade-braking. The two redlines that you're refering to have nothing to do with towing. The lower redline is for when you're on the throttle and the higher one(I think it's about 1250RPM higher) is while engine braking with no throttle. Doesn't matter to me. The truck is history.

RE: gray water tank

Your dealer prolly has 25 in stock. A common problem. The extension joins the valve stub rod with a threaded sleeve (which might still be in place if you look). Easy repair.
