RE: best new 5er about 32 foot. to purchase.

All you folks have been so helpful, my boy is coming over this Sat. to get some work done here. I will pass on all the information to him and then we will get together with his father in law and go over his options. not sure if he can wait for the big RV show coming up in Pamona, ca. I went there a few years back and they have nearly every type of RV available. thanks so much for the info.

RE: best new 5er about 32 foot. to purchase.

just for quicky are any of the ones on the list substandard?? He is getting out of the offroad buggy thing because of an serious accident/injury and getting rid of his 3 axle 45 foot toy hauler and wants something more suited for camping and vacationing. A lot of places or not suited for the real big long trailer. so that is where we came up with the 35 foot size, The buggy thing is on hold for a while.

RE: best new 5er about 32 foot. to purchase.

Sadly, most of them on the list are not suitable for his truck. So unless he is going for a new/newer dually he will need to stick with a fifth wheel under 10,000 GVWR Arctic Fox does have several models that might work if he is very careful. But they are heavy for their size, so again look at GVWR numbers. I just check with my boy, he has a 2008 Ford F450 dually.

RE: Clearance Between Bed Rails and Fiver. Yikes!

on my boys 2013 F150 and a pullrite we purchase a kit that raised the 5th wheel hitch 3" and matched my 99 dodge clearance. we were going to make the lift kit but it was actually reasonable a I think $100.

RE: Hitch on rear of 5th wheel

I had a local welder/fabricator come to my house and he custom built mine on site. Welded a 4" square tube between frame rails and welded hitch tube to that, looks like a factory installation and only cost about $250.00. in California it would cost $250 just to come to your house the install and parts from there.

RE: Hitch on rear of 5th wheel

I made a hitch for my 5er, I got some large C channel that I bolted to the existing channel at the rear with 5 grade 8 bolts. I ran that through the fiberglass of the trailer and use a truck hitch that I extended. I cut square holes in the channel and ran the extended hitch through the C channel and welded it up. I have a basket on it that I carry a 3000 watt Yamaha and for one trip adde a bike rack to hold 3 bikes.Traveled many miles and all is good. http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/2000%20Sea%20Breeze%20Vacations%20Trips/th_IMG_20130730_132458_512.jpg http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/5th%20wheel%20Sea%20Breeze/th_IMG_20130418_112233_397.jpg

RE: Superglide Install

Installed mine myself. I drilled a small hole first to see if it was on center, then drilled the big hole to compensate. Was fairly straight frward. I did run into a glitch though with my airbag mounts trying to clamp over the hitch plates. They use the same section of frame. We got the Superglide in on my boys 2013 Ford F150 then the next day we went and trimmed the bracket for the air bag mounts and weld them to the superglide bracket at the same location that they should be and was a simpler job then we expected. they are the 2500lb bags not the 5000lb and they do the trick.

RE: Superglide Install

how difficult is it to get the head aligned lets say at the extreme condition of 90 degrees? I have one occasion that I can run into this problem where the camping sites are parallel.

RE: Black Tank Explosion

http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/2000%20Sea%20Breeze%20Vacations%20Trips/th_2013-09-24161724.jpg]weld is working not pretty but wanted it strongIf the trailer is new enough to replace the tank that is the way to go. IF NOT THEN it can be plastic welded. I could not find a close replacement for my 2000 Sea Breeze so I took an old big soldier iron that my dad gave me and welded on a stainless plate and soldier up the 115 gallon tank that was split at the seam. http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/2000%20Sea%20Breeze%20Vacations%20Trips/th_2013-09-25093722.jpg http://i890.photobucket.com/albums/ac110/Edke6bnl/2000%20Sea%20Breeze%20Vacations%20Trips/th_2013-09-24161724.jpg

RE: Superglide Install

I have done two mine was the first and it went smooth and took about 3.5 hrs and that included the air bags. the second was for my boys 2012 ford F150 that one took about the same time for the hitch and that thing is a monster 12k with a longer throw because of the very short bed. was harder then for my Dodge with the 6.5 ft. bed 16k. we put air bags in his the following day. they don't fit, the brackets are in the way. we had to trim the airbag bracket down and then we welded them to the SG bracket and they then worked perfect not a real do it yourselfer for most.

RE: F-150 Ecoboost, built in generator

While I agree with everyone here about sizing everything correctly the EcoBoost will not get any better MPG towing than any other truck while towing a load. Sure it will get great unloaded, but if you are buying it to tow. mpg should not be a factor. If people are saying 10mpg towing, that is what my v10 gets but or course, that is all the time :) As for the 2015, I have not heard any rumor about an ecoboost in a 3/4 ton, but i do know the 19.5's are back for the 450, which could only mean they are going to compete with dodge and there 30000lbs. My boy gets terrible milage, worse mileage towing then my dodge diesel and 2500 more lbs tow trailer. and the actual non tow mileage is not up to what they claim, BUT does tow well

RE: New Floor Questions

I am surely not expert BUT I put in a vinyl wood plank by allure and when I was done and retracted the slide I can reach under and turn the roller that is not in contact with the vinyl floor at all. and when we had the rug it would leave a mark on the rug where it slid in and out. so all is good.
Ed9824v 10/03/13 08:32am Fifth-Wheels

I built a hitch that mounted on the pin box. Used a swagman bike rack. Works great should have done it years ago. About 1 hour to make. that the route I will go. put a receiver on the pin box and slide in a bike rack and remove when not being used.

RE: Superglide capture plate metal wear??

Well what I see is the possibility that the hitch locking mechanism is touching the block. Its possible the capture plate is not centered on the king pin and is slightly forward of where it should be. I went out and looked at mine and its centered around the king pin. The hole in the capture plate is bigger than the king pin. I believe all the latching is done below the wedge. I have to go with wrong source for moving the trailer like a forlift with a catch for the ball only.

RE: F-150 Ecoboost, built in generator

We just got back from a trip to the beach my boy was pulling his 30 foot alumilite trailer WITH THE ON BOARD GENERATOR pulled like a champion. he has a 2013 ecoboost 1/2 ton Ford and it performed as well as my 1998.5 Dodge ram 2500 did. his trailer is about 2500 lbs lighter then my 5th wheel. and I do get far better milage but the truck can do it, and do it well, I have seen it and we are headed up the the High Sierras in about 3 weeks for another vacation.

RE: Question about winterizing with my pump ?

It is a filter got them on most boats too. my boy had water pressure issues and bought a new put when we went to install it we first removed the round ball and its filter was plugged, we cleaned it and he brought the new pump back.
