RE: Found it! But CCC looks awful low?

The tb engine was fine. The gear ratio 3.42, frontal area. I would tow a 3000lb pup on some of those 15% grades at 15mph, and have the chevy screamimg. NEPA is not southeast, PA or similar to any terrain south of 78. Yes thats a higher gear ratio than my Avalanche. I know all about the hills in northern PA. I have towed our HTT up to NY through northern PA. NY has some good hills to test your TV as well.

RE: traveling with firearms

so no one here but a few belives in the laws of the land the constution and does anyone know what infringed upion mean or are they just words instead of being judgmental, maybe you could explain the meaning for those of us not so well informed… but you need to also be able to define Arms as referenced in the 2nd Amendment by its authors … or what they could have possibly envisioned as Arms, 200 hundred+ years later… you might also enlighten us on why the 2nd amendment was thought to be needed in the first place, and why it mentions security of a free state, and what is meant by that… when written did the 2nd amendment cover all Americans, and which American people’s right to bear Arms shall not be infringed upon at the time of passage… while the 2nd amendment is short, and I agree with the individual right to bear Arms it guarantees, its explanations and history might not be so short and straight forward… that may mean the intent was not as short or as straight forward as the amendment either… if I might ask what is your source of information or expertise on the subject??? unfortunately I am not as well versed as many or as well as I should be… . Since this thread has already got out of hand I am going to add to it. Its been proven that a well armed PUBLIC is a well behaved PUBLIC. And my view on it is my RV is my second home. And just like my first home I have the right to protect my home and family with a gun. So why should my second home be any different just because it has wheels.

RE: how to find a small leak

this is the main company and their dealers/shops, that do the pressure test for leaks. SealTech Manuf. This is why I love this web site. No matter how long you have been Rving you still always learn things. I never new you could have your RV pressure tested. Very cool and well worth a $100 if thats what they charge to do it. But a lot of units you probably would need a lot of soapy water. :B

RE: Found it! But CCC looks awful low?

i have towed our 21ft bh with 5.3v8 trailblazer. It could not do 60mph downhill highway grade 4%. the tongue weight is 650lbs.......fully loaded (5000lbs) There was either something wrong with your TrailBlazer or you had extremely unrealistic expectations... I agree. Although a TrailBlazer is not a full size TV but with the 5.3V8 it should pull a 21' HTT with out any issues. I have the same enigine in my Avalanche and I can pull my 26' HTT 60mph uphill at a 4% grade. Unless it has really high rear end gears. Which could be the case. Sorry got off topic. To the OP I would recommend getting a better TV. One with a V8 that has more towing power. Then like others have said you have more choices in HTT's or TT's

RE: Another Bonehead Manouever!!

1.Pulled away with TT once with it still plugged in. At least I saw it before I left the driveway and didn't get all the way to destination with no cord. 2. Unhooked TT and drove to friends house about a mile away. On the return trip- SCORE I found a set of leveling bars in the road and coincidentally were the same brand and model as mine. Imagine that some bonehead forgot to remove them from his hitch. Good thing I found them because mine were missing when I got home. :B LOL

RE: Anyone in getting ready for an early trip?

I guess it depends on what you mean by early. My wife is a CPA so April 16 is early. We have a trip planned in May. I guess it depends on your location. Here in the northeast I would consider Late Feb. through early April as a early trip.

Anyone in getting ready for an early trip?

For us that have been snowed in all winter anyone trying to get ready for an early trip? I am going to Jekylle Island at the end of March and have a hole list of things to do to get ready but the cold and snow has put a damper on getting things done. Normally I am all about the snow as I love to snowmobile but even I am ready for spring. :)

RE: How big can I tow?

Crusher, suggest you go over to the Hybrid Forum if you have questions about them. since i have one, let me give you a warning. most hybrid owners, were former popup owners and want to continue the "tent" feel that a hybrid gives you but with more amenities and less setup hassle. we know the few negatives that come with the canvas ends but are willing to put up with them, in order keep sleeping under canvas. we love the experience. but many buy a hybrid just because it offers a lot of sleeping space in a small and lighter package. but they don't take into consideration the extra work/care/maintenance that's required. they end up selling the hybrid because of failing to think about that. those of us in the hybrid community often state: "If you don't love the idea of sleeping under canvas, DON'T buy a hybrid". if this idea appeals to you and your family, you might be a good candidate for owning a hybrid travel trailer.:B after over 7 years, we still love ours. X's 2 on what he said. We too love our HTT. And you could tow any HTT with a Durango like yours. I think the longest of the HTT's is about 26' Still would need the WDH and brake controller.

RE: RV Financing..

On that amount most banks will only go 6 years max. If you are talking 20-50k then you can find banks that would go 10 years maybe more.

RE: How big can I tow?

I towed for years with my Durango with the smaller 5.3 and my camper is 26' with a GVWR of 4800lbs. Had plenty of power to pull which most Durangos can pull a lot of weight but you have to keep in mind they are a smaller mid size SUV. The longer the TT the more wind area you have. I can say that the bigger full frame of my Avalanche is much more stable while towing. It comes down to CAN YOU or SHOULD YOU.

RE: Seasonal Camping roof protection

I would not leave the tent ends out when not using it. But thats just me. Even with a second roof.

RE: Comparing Jayco X18D to Roo/Shamrock 183 and Starcraft 187TB

Ground clearance on the Jaycos has always been a problem not noted on the Roos. -- Chuck Ground clearance is not an issue on Jayco's. Yes some set lower than others. I prefer the lower ground clearance. One is it makes it easier for my dogs to get in and out. Second it has less wind resistance going down the road. So do not listen to all the na Sayers that think it’s better to have their HTT jacked up in the air. You can compare and make your own decision. My comment about the step really wasn't about ground clearance. My sisters Jayco and our Roo are about the same from floor to ground. Our Roo, however has 2 steps to enter the door whereas my sisters Jayco has only one, and it is a big step to climb in. The steps are bolt on and am sure a dealer could change them. I was merely pointing out the differences. No your commemt was good information for the OP to compare. And its also ok to say that different makes might have different ground clearance. And the OP can take all the info into account. But I and other Jayco owners get irritated when someone says ground clearance is a problem on a make that he does not own.

RE: Shower bar upgrade

That is a tub and not a shower pan, correct? Yes mine is a tub. I would think it would work for a pan as well just would need the full lenght of the curtain.

RE: Shower bar upgrade

Did you need a longer curtain ? The original curain was fastened to the ceiling on a rail so it could not be used. I just bought a standard curtain from Walmart and had to shorten it by about 5" and cut about 16" off the lenght as to not have to much curtain bunched up that was not needed.

RE: Shower bar upgrade

So it swings 180 degrees- from inside the shower to the outside ? Thanks,Mike Yes gives you more room in the shower when needed. And more space outside the shower when not using.

RE: Shower bar upgrade

Wow you have a full bar in your shower? I would be satisfied with just a beer tap. BTW your pic did not post :B Yeah what's up with the fish curtain pic lets see one of the bar :) Seriously though can you post one with the bar folded down ? It folds out but yes i will take a photo of the bar out and put it up.
