RE: Kitchen Island

We bought ours BECAUSE it had the island, but we didn't buy the one with the sliding patio doors and tip out deck on the side. Isn't CHOICE and PREFERENCE awesome things to have available :)

RE: Generator

With the onboard Onan generators, you can buy a wireless remote start that is programable. Even in a park with electric hookups, you can program the remote start to activate if the power goes out so your pets will be safe. That is a cool option. We bought ours before that was available but it would be fun to add.

RE: Generator

It would work great for that. We don't do dogs, but I've used the AC on roadside stops for myself. Wife calls me an old dog, so maybe that's the same thing.

RE: Generator

that will be nice! We stay at Thousand Trails Palm Springs a lot. Half park is 30 other is 50A. We like the 30 A side much better so now we can cool when others are sweating and dry clothes to boot. I am getting more excited about this new toy! Another benefit is pre-set your ACs and then about 30 minutes out from the campsite, fire the generator and pre-cool the house! Remote start is even better!

RE: Is 37' to much for a shortbed SRW??

This is hilarious. One guy calls it a F250 and another looked up the VIN and said it is a gasser when the original poster said diesel. I would go with the OP since he drives it.Here is a Pic of my old girl.. http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc510/Ctmustang1/10535773_10203470810189770_1199684555646632845_o_zpsf2cbf641.jpg Kevin, My apologies, I guess the Vin # search thing isn't as reliable as I thought. It has always been right on before. I reinstate my confidence in your diesel's ability to tow that trailer just dandy. Nice truck by the way, just like my 2001 on only mine was white over adobe.

RE: Generator

Do any of you with bigger 5500/6500 gen sets carry an extra propane bottle? My rig has two 40s. I don't really have a good place carry another, but never really had a need to. I use the generator for roadside stuff, cleaning the coach, occasional backup, but never long run boondocking. The little EUV gensets are better for that. This is all new to me. I have two 40# also. The 6500 should open up other camping possibilities. One thing I thought of not all parks have 50A but I will have 240V for the dryer. So if we need to dry a load then on goes the gen. That would make short work of it. Also nice when you have 30A campground only and you want to cool the rig down with both ACs for a while, then drop back to one AC on the 30A.

RE: Is 37' to much for a shortbed SRW??

That truck fits that trailer like Cinderella's slipper! Perfect! I just looked up that VIN, and I need to retract my statement. 1FTSW31F31EA50875 I just assumed diesel, my bad. That ~14,000 lb trailer is more trailer than that 5.4 gasser and manual trans is going to like. You won't be happy. I'm surprised that 5.4 has enough ponies to move the empty truck.

RE: Is 37' to much for a shortbed SRW??

Not sure how some can state that the truck is ok for what he is looking at. How many think this tag is accurate??? His max payload of 2571 may be more or less. But the truck needs to be weighed to truely know what pin weight he should be looking at...It all depends on people and cargo and fuel. http://i1215.photobucket.com/albums/cc510/Ctmustang1/IMG_20150111_213633210_zpsac65e743.jpg height=300 width=300 Im an axle weight guy. IMO as I said earlier is he loads the truck with fuel and cargo/passengers..then, Take said truck to cat scale. Get separate axle weights Take the trucks axle weights on the door tag and subtract from the #'s you got from the scales. Thats 6830lb-RAWR - ???? Do same for front That will tell you payload/pin period.... Cost is around $10 for the scale.. That would be the best $10 you ever spent.. Then when looking for a 5th wheel, most dealers can tell the exact pin weight. IF your 235/80's are fairly new, I'd put them on the trailer and get rid of even new ST tires They are the trailer tires I believe.. The OP did not post the truck tire size.... . Really?? This coming from a guy that tows a 30 ft TT with an S-10?? I sure know who I would rather follow down the highway :E

RE: Generator

We have had the Onan LP 5500 for 11 years. Fantastic convenience. It is kind of like the Washer/Dryer, Dishwasher, Satellite dish...nobody actually "needs" them, but they make for a comfortable rig.

RE: Thor/Heartland buys out DRV

So I guess when I saw 1/8" gap in the DRV moulding - it makes it all even, right? When you throw in more money, you don't get more quality back, you just get more stuff.

RE: Thor/Heartland buys out DRV

I had been looking somewhat at DRV. I will not do that now, just simply scared if the quality will go down, but still look really nice. Hopefully it will still be a quality product. However; I will keep my interest on Lifestyle. The mother company seems to be quality. They have let Lifestyle continue to be a quality product just as Carriage. Just my thoughts. I've just been burned to many times with poor quality products. You would have NEVER bought a DRV because of the Lippert frame! Who you trying to kid :S

RE: Auto Leveling

I will do my best to stay away from Lippert. I've seen very little quality coming from Lippert. I know that is your standard boiler plate answer to everything, and I'm not necessarily a fan of Lippert either - but most of this LCI stuff is not made by Lippert, rather just owned by Lippert. Many of these companies have a history of top quality products (i.e. Trailair, J.T Stabilizers, RV Lock, etc.) Maybe even Level-Up has a good history as a registered trademark.

Why are we talking about another forum on this forum?

RE: landmark cascade

If you like that extra room from the double slide in the bedroom, look at the Redwood King slide in a slide! It puts everything out the street side for 40" of floor space in front of the bed, and no slide sticking into your awning space.

Fordman - why not jump to that Big Sky! They are awesome this year.

RE: Auto Leveling

I used to complain a bit about the length of time it took to set up a 5er compared to a MH, but with the 6 pt leveling my attitude has changed dramatically. A few things I now do, that I never would have considered before - Make reservations that include me moving from one site to another when the better site becomes available. Reserving an electric only site that would involve me pulling out to get water and dump tanks a few times during the trip. I even pulled into a state park and was double booked with a tenter that the ranger had given my site to by mistake before I got there. The ranger was sympathetic to my need for full hookups but this guy wasn't going to budge, even though he hadn't even unpacked. I raised my hand - don't worry about it - mine is so easy to set up I don't mind parking somewhere else until the morning. :)

RE: Which axles do I have?

I believe you have Dexter 7K axles - might be derated to 6,800 or so because of the ST tires.

RE: Goodyear Marathons ?

replaced Tow Max with Goodyear R ST 614's. GY CS said the 614's are an ST tire. The LT235/85R16 on the side of my G614s, must be a typo :) Along with the 75 mph speed range. There is nothing ST about the G614. It just doesn't seem to have a place to fit between LT and ST, other than its has the performance of a high end motorhome tire sized for a trailer.
