RE: The New Redwood arrived

Congrats Ford Truck Guy! Hope you are as happy with it as we have been with ours! They didn't offer a King slide in slide with ours, only a King, or a queen slide-in-slide. I would have loved to have gotten both!

RE: RV inspections

Hadn't heard of a State RV inspection. What do they inspect?

RE: Pulling a 5th wheel on level highway

Might be a Dodge concern, I've never had one. There was a concern for the light duty gas Chev 3sp OD transmissions I recall on fleet notices, but that was in the early 90s. Not saying it isn't true about the issue, but sometimes "experienced RVers" means they can't learn anything new after they get set in their ways.

RE: DRV

This highly customized Elite Suites is in our summer RV Park. It cost really big bucks. .....and? Was there a point to follow there? PS - that blue is horrid!

RE: DRV

I'm not posting them on the forum and create a major fuss ball. A lot of good folks own DRV products and they're probably most happy with them. I don't want to shovel on the next guy's rig. As you read, what I said is if you're contemplating a DRV product, do your homework. And "no". We didn't realize DRV "sold out" to Thor. So....what exactly was the purpose of your post if it wasn't to create a major fuss ball? Sounds like a "brand bomb" to me. I think everyone knows enough to "do their own homework", as that is pretty typical for any buyer. Its hard enough to sort through the issues of actual owners without having to trim off the opinions of "almost owners". :R

RE: short box vs long box

Get rid of it so you can get rid of the pin plate and all that weight. Those things are dinosaurs. Probably an easy sell on Craigslist.thanks but i like my slider and i own 2 diesels and a gasser i think i have enough trucks to do any hauling the dually will be only for towing uhh...OK. It was you doing the asking. It was me doing the answering. If you already knew the answer, why did you wake me up?

RE: short box vs long box

As far as weight, a 2 pound wedge plate isn't breaking the bank. C.B.I was talking about the hitch, not the wedge plate. Who would want to haul that dinosaur around if they didn't have to. I would kick it to the curb and get something more friendly to get out of the truck when you need to use it. I was a happy guy the day I could rip out that slider and to a standard hitch.

RE: Which led bulb is best

Be careful on cheap - I bought a batch of bulk LED on ebay, and although I ordered warm they were actually all over the map in color temperature. Some were so yellow they were almost bug lights, others were blue - even blueish green. I suckered and am not using any of them.

RE: Backup camera and hiding the wiring..

If you have the "flat back" on yours, its full of styrofoam and you won't get a wire down it. If you have a molded fiberglass cap in the back, you should have plenty of room to fish down - most of it is hollow with a bat type insulation in there. I just fished up to my marker light for a camera install. Hope you like your Garmin better than I did. I just returned it last week. For me, I couldn't tell if it was a car or a house behind me. The wide angle was so wide, everything was distorted. I went for a larger camera system and still need to install it.

RE: Which led bulb is best

Try 1 of each before you replace all of them. The paddle style do throw more direct light, but they also are real visible inside the fixture. The omni-directional will look more like the bulb you have now. All preference.

RE: Lippert spec'd frame list

I can tell you the fix from the Redwood and Montana factory was simply a cut in the wall below the slide with an H-channel trim inserted. Those that had them from the factory have not had issues. If it's frame flex, so what as long as you accommodate for the flex. Now there is a big difference between frame flex and frame fail because of poor welds - different subject. I know all you box frame lovers are compassionate about your box frames, to the point of it being a cult, but that isn't the only way to build a coach.

RE: Lippert spec'd frame list

What is the big deal about frame flex? Frames need to flex somewhat, or the rest of the coach takes the brunt. The coach just needs to be designed correctly to account for the flex. Well, my old '08 Ford had frame flex that would resonate around 45mph. When in resonates you get 'g' amplication that potentially could lead up greater problems. Not saying this happens here, but it could. Boxed frames like in the Chevy and RAM solve that problem. Also the frames used in the Mobile Suites and Lifestyle, and a couple others won't have that problem. Hmm, I had an 08 Ford as well, and never had that problem, nor have I ever heard of it. I'm not sure that was any kind of "fix" chev and dodge went to. I have a Jeep with a completely rusted through box frame because the frame couldn't clean itself out when it got wet or muddy. I'm not a fan of box frames at all.

RE: How to tap into propane on RV?

I tapped mine right after the regulator for supplying a generator. I had an LP shop make up the hose for me. I actually bought all the fittings from them. I could deal with hardpipe, but this new flex stuff is a technology I'm not tooled for. http://pic100.picturetrail.com/VOL1523/6528899/12657597/411348769.jpg

RE: Lippert spec'd frame list

You wouldn't be able too. (sic) Then we won't try to. Not that I am a Lippert cheerleader, but has anyone seen a documented,with a link, Lippert frame failure in the last five years?? I have. 2013. http://www.openrangeowners.com/ORforum/viewtopic.php?f=86&t=1482&start=128 BZZZT Thrown out. Cracks in walls, not frame.What do you think causes cracks in walls Frame flex or Broke frame. either way it was the Frame that caused the problem. Not necessarily, it might have been the ignorant engineer that didn't look at 5th history and understand that have to put a flex joint in the wall right there.

RE: Lippert spec'd frame list

Me too. http://www.redwoodowners.com/forums/f10/cracking-rv-body-1982.html That's not a frame issue. You have to actually read the thread.

RE: Where do you carry/store large cooler?

We put a mini fridge in our basement for drinks and did away with the cooler. But that wouldn't help if you were boondocking. was seriously considering that! Do you set it outside when camping? I was wondering if it would stay cold enough in the sun. We leave it in our basement. Our drinks have been cold no matter the temp. We could probably take it out but we would have to put it away every night since we have a lot of teenagers in the campground where our lot is located. ;) You could put it under your 5th wheel while camping so it stays in the shade. I don't have room in my basement, cause we have a factory TV that flips down in there and kind of ruins the concept for a fridge, but I was considering hauling one in the pickup and then setting it outside. why not!! - thanks.

I would never give up my basement space for a cooler unless it was a last resort.
