RE: Survey: How often do you chock your wheels?

Always before unhitching.

RE: RAM 3500 Diesel Owners - Still Like Your Truck?

My 2006 Dodge 3500 DRW 4x4 pulls like a freight train... 55,700 orig miles. Payload to spare and the unmatched stability of a DRW. My daily driver & old tow vehicle an 06 Dodge 2500 SWR 4x4 with 192,000 miles is still going strong. Yes... I still like my CTD Dodges !!

RE: 5th Wheel Hitch Advice

I'd recommend an auto slider in the brand of your choice for your bed length. Our PullRite is in our second Dodge truck and has performed flawlessly since late 2006. I've seen far too many crunched in cabs and shattered rear windows to even consider chancing it in a short box truck. Installing an auto slider for me was like changing to LT tires... peace of mind, no worries, no need to look back, just get out and have a enjoyable camping experience.

RE: Pull tests

I rarely do a pull test, when the handle on my PullRite goes in you can hear it lock. I do normally look in with a flash light to be sure the jaw is fully wrapped around the pin. Then I engage the safety latch from Butch Services and we're good to go. Remember Goal... Get Out And Look !!!

RE: closing sliders

Slide outs will only effectively seal when completely retracted or extended. Pool noodles left in place when slide out was retracted will interfere with slide out sealing Looks like a road trip. X2, totally agree.

RE: Rear Kitchen VS Rear Living Room

We've had a rear kitchen, front kitchen and now a mid kitchen,all worked well for us. We do prefer the rear living area with the big rear picture window though and being able to access everything with the slides in. Its all comes down to personal preference & what works for you.

RE: Tire Brand

Replacing my bombs on my trailer today with Bridgestone Duravis R250s and had a chance to look and compare both tires unmounted side-by-side. Absolutely no comparison. Weight and sidewall thickness of the LT over the ST is dramatic. I don't see how anyone could defend an ST tire after comparing side by side to a good LT. Good choice with the Duravis R250... those tires will do the job easily,no more worries. In an earlier post I commented on comparing the tires side by side,if more people would do the hands on comparison you did we would have less people defending these cheap inadequate tires. For me ST meant Sure Trouble & Short Term On the other hand the Sailun St is a heavy duty high quality manufactured tire totally different than the cheap light ST's.The Sailun's have excellent performance reviews and I will definitely consider them when I need new tires in a few years.

RE: New trailer

That's a fine looking trailer, a couple had one in a Georgia campground a few weeks ago with full body paint... pretty sharp. As others said watch out overhead for low branches. I had a limb in a South Carolina state park( miles away from civilization) punch a hole in the bathroom fan skylight crank up cover last year, to make matters worse heavy rain was on the way. I made a 4"x6" patch from a 1 gallon plastic water jug and secured it in place with 12 sheet metal screws 1/8" x 1/2". I caulked the patch heavily with white G.E. silicon caulking. The patch held leak free throughout the rainy night & next day,replaced the cover a few weeks later. Enjoy the new rig!!

RE: Tire Brand

As far as cheap st tires go I'll add this to the discussion.In 2008 my oem st tires began to fail on my current 5er one after another within a 100 miles or so of each other. The cheap import st replacements also began to fail about 18 months later,luckily I caught all 8 tires before any catastrophic damage was done. Now to the cheap part !! I worked in the industrial tire business for many many years and had access to distributor pricing as well as wholesale pricing for tires, otr / truck or passenger application. My loose tire price for ST 235/80R/16 LRE ranged from $32.00 to $48.00 each and included several different import brands,some had the same tread pattern some didn't, some of the brands had the same DOT number hint...hint. My distributor price on the least expensive Michelin LT 235/85R/16 LRE was $188.00 per tire (loose) I could buy 4 st's for what 1 Michelin cost !! There is a huge difference between a high quality manufactured LT tire and a cheap overrated ST import... just pick 1 of each up and the difference is realized immediately,also pull on the sidewalls. I ended up with 235/85R/16 LRE BFG Commercial TA's which were flawless... but got recalled and replaced with Michelin XPS Ribs of the same size and couldn't be more satisfied. Returned from a south Georgia camping trip last week and the XPS ribs were slightly warm with the cruise set on 70mph turning 2000 rpm's.

RE: Superglide 3300

I would give Pullrite a call and ask for their assistance, they were extremely helpful the 2 times I've called in the past.

RE: First time owner-Black water tank clogged....help!

wow that first video was graphic!!! X2... Whew!!! What a mess. The Tank Tool RX did the job. I'm going to make one out of spare hose parts and add it to my sewer supply stock just in case.

RE: removal of tv

The picture tube type analog tv that came in our signature rv was heavy and hard to handle.It was held in place on the bottom with a 5 inch deck screw in the front center of the tv which went directly into the plastic tv housing,accessed from the cabinet under the tv. The top of the tv was also held in place with 2 deck screws directly screwed into the housing on each side accessed through the cabinet on top of the tv. I replaced the oe tv with a nice Philips flat screen several years ago. The TV in my Montana had four screws in it. After the original went out I replaced it, mounting it the same way. Pretty spooky screwing those screws into the tv, but it worked for years. The base on our flat screen is about 6" deep x 12" wide, I drilled a 1/8th" hole in the center of the base 1" back from the front lip and secured it with a stainless 18-8 x 1.5" round head screw into the top of the tv compartment floor. The tv sits about flush with the opening and the one screw mount allows us to turn the tv on its 6 rubber feet left/right or to get behind it for connections. When traveling we drape straps over the screen on each side secured to the compartment floor and cabinet under the tv to keep it firmly in place... 4 years of bumpy roads and no problems.

RE: Tonneau recommendations

Our dually came with a Lorado roll up soft bed cover thats been on the truck since late 2005 and has held up extremely well. When not towing the cover keeps the hitch and other bed contents out of sight.
