RE: Dry camping Oregon for Rock Hounding locations

Try a Google search for blogs by "Bill Barker". He writes outdoor articles for the Corvallis Gazette-Times. A number of his articles specifically are pointed towards rock hounding in Oregon in out of the way places to camp.

RE: King Tailgater Portable Dish Satellite

I have a Dish plan where the 1st receiver is no charge and the second receiver is $7/month. Since I take one of the receivers from home, I don't pay anything extra to have satellite reception when camping away from home. On our 3rd year using the Tailgater with Dish. Of course they would love to rent you a receiver for an additional $7/month. You could always take a receiver from your home when you travel and use it and not pay any additional charges. Actually you don't rent the receiver, you buy it. There basic receiver is $100. The $7.00 per month is for the channels your viewing which is everything you have at home.

RE: Smaller fifth wheels no longer made??

Heartland makes a few models smaller than yours. Prowler P22 Elkridge E22 Both units have a slide. Lots of interior storage. Limited exterior storage.

RE: 5th wheel insurence

Best price I found while getting quotes in August this year was from AARP/Hartford. They rolled it into the tow vehicle policy for an additional $18 per year. 250k/500k including comprehensive and collision deductible of $500

RE: Burglar Alarm?

Since I am away from the trailer for up to 8 hours per day while fishing, I installed this system from Harbor Freight. http://www.harborfreight.com/six-sensor-wireless-home-alarm-94799.html All entry points to the fifth wheel and all exterior storage doors are alarmed. My intention is that the noise of the alarm will scare any intruders away and towards other easier targets.

RE: Dish Tailgater

250 feet I have the original 50 foot cable + 15 feet if interior cable + 185 feet that I purchased for those times where additional cable is needed. Put it all together and no problem with reception.

RE: Stainless steel cookware - recommendations ?

We received a Farberware cookware set as a wedding gift over 40 years ago that is still used today. We purchased open stock Farberware pots and pans that are permanent cookware items in our 5'r. They have been in use for almost 15 years. It would be a good decision to go that direction when making a purchase.

RE: Mr Heater Buddy vs Olympian Wave 6

Started out with the Mr Buddy for comfort heat in the 5th wheel and replaced it with a Wave6 four years ago. Wish I had bought the Wave6 in the first place.

RE: Attention RV manufactures, I want only one KEY!!

Don't like it? Change them! I did with Global Locks. Fortunately my 5r entry door came with the Global so I only had to change the barrel locks on the baggage doors to match. Easy and inexpensive job, and the keys are all the same double sided. Google "RVLocksAndMore"

RE: satellite TV for RV'ers

I have a Tailgater + Dish service at home and don't understand why people say buy an extra VIP211 receiver and pay an extra $7 per month. You just remove a house receiver by unplugging the coax cable, unplug the HDMI cable, and unplug the receiver power from your outlet. Take the receiver to the RV. Reverse procedure when you return home. I keep those extra dollars for something else. We have two receivers at home so nobody goes without.

RE: Cougar landing gear fuse.

When you find it, if it is a standard fuse replace it with an automatic reset fuse. Less than $5.

RE: cookware

Yes, Farberware is a very good brand(or at least used to be). We received a set as a wedding present almost 44 years ago(close to half a century:)), and have been our household "daily users" ever since. We subsequently also bought some "open stock" Farberware pots that reside in the RV. Is Farberware a good brand? Will it last a good while? I don't need it to last a half century, ha ha.

RE: Any info on the Prowler P22.....

It is essentially the same as our Elkridge E22. We have been very happy with our Heartland 5r. We did change the mattress to a more robust product(memory foam from lastingimpressionsfoamdotcom) and all 3 faucets(kitchen, bathroom, outdoor camp kitchen).

The "R" value of the insulation of the Elkridge line and Elkridge Xtreme Lite lineup is identical (Wall = R11, Roof & Floor = R14). The Xtreme Lite will likely not have a Coroplast liner on the undercarriage. The other main difference between the two is the Elkridge 5r's will have 6,000 pound axles while the Xtreme Lite units will have 4,400 pound axles. In general "Lite" trailers have thin walls.

Elkridge "Lite" models have been sold for at least 5 years. Before being renamed as Extreme Lite, they were called Elkridge Express.
