RE: Air Lift SmartAir

I installed one on my last truck because I could, and I enjoyed having it. It just took care of itself and kept me level with any load. The only downside is you had to be quick to disconnect the 5er after you used the landing gear to raise the pin box, or the bags would deflate before you could open the jaws and pull down on the pin. The remedy was to just lower the landing gear to the new level, but sometimes a pain it the butt.

RE: Gas shock on door

Usually that is only to keep it from hitting a slide when its extended. Otherwise not sure of the purpose.

RE: very high fifth wheel and bridge concerns

My dad designed rockets back in the 60's and bridges have been 14' minimum since that time on all interstates! Fred.Don't you just love absolute statements - they are always so absolutely incorrect. You should see all the damaged rockets that have been collecting in the ditch here on the side of I-25 here in Denver. The sign must be for all the Rocket Scientists :B http://pic100.picturetrail.com/VOL1523/6528899/12657597/403259879.jpg

RE: Slide Out Awning

The slide should be constructed the same as the side of the coach, so attaching shouldn't be a problem - however you will end up with a short arm awning because of the length of the arms and height available. There is nothing to attached to below the floor of the slide - it's all tin. If your main awning is electric, you might try an electric on the slide. they don't require near as log of arms. Ours has a Carefree electric on the slide.

RE: "Whisper Quiet" or "Dual-Ducted" Air Conditioning - reviews?

But..split units aren't available on rigs in the US so its not really relevant. At least I haven't seen them as an option.

There you go! Glad you got it fixed :)

RE: "Whisper Quiet" or "Dual-Ducted" Air Conditioning - reviews?

One thing to watch on the ducted returns, where they meet under the AC unit, our manufacturer installed a foam type insert in the truss to separate the supply and return, and some have shifted causing a breach between the two. This really reduces efficiency and you can actually feel supply air coming from the nearest returns. Aluminum tape cures the issue - you have to access from the top by removing the cowling.

RE: "Whisper Quiet" or "Dual-Ducted" Air Conditioning - reviews?

The whisper quiet are heaven! You can actually have a normal conversation in the trailer while they are running - barely hear them except for a hum coming from the roof. Ours are also heat pumps. I used to think the furnace was the quieter of the two when we had our older unit with the return air in the center of the roof, but now we prefer the heat pumps for heat when we can over the noisy ol furnace :) Aussies - there is no way your split units are quester than these unless you are ducting the supply from a remote location. There is nothing quiet about a split unit.

RE: heat pump

I wish our thermostats had "Auto" but they do not. Ours are Coleman brand. For some reason Redwood must be anti-dometic. I don't have a single Dometic part on mine. you should be able to replace the thermostat quite easily. $80 for my type of dometic thermostat on ebay.. #3314080. multi-zone, ... No they aren't anywhere near the same architecture.

RE: Brake issues on my 05 Montana

When they don't work it is all of them. I was wondering if when I have the problem if everything goes dead or everything past the problem is where I should be looking. We replaced the 7 pin plug last year before vacation. I am checking it out right now. Again thanks RayThat's what mine was doing - the short in the drum would cause fail on the brake controller and as a result no brakes at all. It can't provide voltage to the other magnets if the circuit is shorted. It would start working, only to have it fail a few minutes later. Real frustrating, and I was a happy guy when the Montana tech walked in to the lobby to show me a magnet with cut wires.

RE: Brake issues on my 05 Montana

My 07 Montana had cut brake wires inside the drum, probably from the factory. I blamed the truck and controller for months, because the trailer was brand new.

RE: heat pump

We have two heat pumps. Even here in Colorado they are awesome, as they are much quieter than the furnace - and Free! We have 3 seasons here, so those pumps are doing all the work in three of those seasons. I think the option was less than $200 each, maybe $300, I don't remember but well worth the extra.

RE: Tires.... Keep for awhile or get them off???

That is absolutely incorrect and I'm not sure who would have given you that information. There is no direct correlation between the pressure rating and load capacity on the wheel itself, only the tire it is designed to hold. That info came from a Goodyear representative. We were meeting at one of his distributor's tire shops, so the distributor was present also. That correlation was in response to the question "what will this rim hold?" It was my rim rated at 3580# with no psi stamped on it. He was wrong - guess that's because he make tires and not wheels.

RE: looking for best 5th wheel for 1/2 ton pickup

I know some folks that like the Cougar X-Lite 5th wheel with their Toyota, but even the X-lite can chew up 9,000 lbs fast when loaded.

RE: Tires.... Keep for awhile or get them off???

abc40kids - I think your new Mountaineer has the same wheels as my High Country. There is not a max air pressure stamped on the wheel, but there is a max load of 3580 lbs stamped on it. The max load correlates to the max pressure. That equates to approx 105 PSI for the max air pressure (3580/3750 = 105/110). So, I wouldn't run them at 110; your trailer load doesn't need that anyway. The max load at 105 PSI = approx 3400 lbs, plenty enough for your trailer. That is absolutely incorrect and I'm not sure who would have given you that information. There is no direct correlation between the pressure rating and load capacity on the wheel itself, only the tire it is designed to hold. There is this false perception that these wheels are engineered to specific load ranges or pressures, when in fact the alloy wheel composition is nearly identical across size, style and even brand. Load ranges are not even scientific on a wheel - there is no destructive testing performed on a wheel to determine it's load capacity (so much for the safety margin theory I hear discussed all the time). Load rating is nothing more than a specification to the wheel manufacturer. If they build a wheel a specific height and width with a specific lug spread and stud size - it gets the load rating. It is certainly not tested to that rating. Ever wonder why the load ratings are such weird numbers? 3,750, 3,580, etc? Isn't it odd that no matter how odd the wheel ratings are (i.e. 3750@110 psi), there is always a tire that matches that exactly :). The wheels are rated to match the tires they are trying to market for, not the other way around. Ask Tredit why they don't publish any pressures on the website anymore. I got quite enlightened when I went through a reporting process to the NHTSB about a manufacturer that arbitrarily changed wheel ratings when the tire manufacturers came out with new tires.

RE: Tires.... Keep for awhile or get them off???

Goodyear G-614's will be put on.... I'll contact Keystone just to see if the wheel will hold 110psi or it might be stamped on the back of the wheel. I'm wanting to ask Keystone what they were thinking in the first place. I tried with the dealer but I'd haggled them to death already and being a tire dealer I knew I'd be using the g-614's anyway. I had them check to see if the max air was put in and rolled out, 90 min ride never over 55. Amazing how the G's look compared to the E's and as I left the dealer I looked at the Grand Design Solitide, another heavy 5er and found the same E tires. You can probably find your wheel here Tredit Tire and Wheel as I think Keystone still uses them. If you spot it, you can look up the spec. They won't give you psi anymore, but if its rated for 3,750 lbs load its rated for 110psi. Some of the 3,500 lb load wheels are only rated up to 90 psi.
