RE: Cable driven slideouts mechanism

We have a cable slideout system in our Open Range. It is simple to maintain and repair if needed. Works perfectly. I prefer it to a gear driven system by far and I have owned both types. I have not had a hydraulic system but again I suspect that it would be harder to maintain or repair if needed.

RE: Going to buy an Open Range

"" OR is now owned by Jayco and things are changing....and not all for the better. """ What facts do you base this statement on???? I'm guessing he has no facts, just a dislike for Jayco. I agree. We spent a lot of time deciding on our new trailer and ended up with the Open Range in our sig. Our second choice (a close second) was a Jayco. Both are great trailers.

RE: Traveling I-40 west

I was in NC for the month of October. I would drive an extra 500 miles to avoid Arkansas. Actually I did take the southern route back thru Mississippi and Louisiana to avoid going thru Arkansas again (went straight out I-40 going to NC). I think they dig up the road intentionally, patch it, then dig it up again to try to keep you in the state longer. I think it was about 300 miles longer but so much more enjoyable and actually took less time. If you don't mind a full day of road construction and sitting still on the road then I-40 is shorter. Other than that, I-40 is fine.

RE: Cool Mods - Thread restored 10/18/2012

Depending on how old your dishwasher is, she could also be your floor sweeper, bed maker and vacuumer! She's called a wife but don't tell her I said that.

RE: Topper for Truck

Hello Penman, What is difference in fiber she'll and topper, thanks. Thought both were cab height I might be using the wrong term. Mine is a hard shell that adds about 6" to the bed height. If I were doing it over again, I would get one that is cab height. As others have mentioned, you have to check the weight which in my case would be fine. In either case I would definitely want the bed slide like I have now.

RE: Topper for Truck

I have a fiberglass topper on my truck but if I had it to do over again I would get a camper shell instead. The one thing I would do the same is get a bed slide so I can just pull it out and reach items from anywhere in the bed.

RE: When did the eu2000's become so hard to start

I have two Hondas (eu2000) that I run once a month as a minimum. They always start but usually take 10 to 12 pulls. Then they die and I start them again on the first pull. They run fine after that under a 1500 watt load. I keep Stabil in the gas but I suspect better, fresh gas would help.

RE: Open Range Quality

We have the OR bumper pull in our signature. We are just about out of the 2 year warranty period and have only had two problems (neither caused by OR). The propane regulator would not switch between tanks, even manually, and was promptly replaced. We had a problem with the door lock on our last trip across country but have not had it fixed yet. We have been very happy with our trailer and my family has had many different RV's from Winnebago Class A to truck campers and we like the OR the best so far.

RE: Buying New Travel Trailer.

Short answer, NO. That's why they'll tell you "Sure, you can pull that 14,000 lb. trailer with your F150 and you won't even need sway control."

RE: Things to NOT Leave in Your Trailer for Winter Storage.

I remove the battery from the smoke alarm as well as things others have mentioned.

RE: Slide goes out, not in.

Had the same problem on my last trailer. A wire came loose from the switch because a wire nut was not tight. I soldered all the connections and never had another problem with it.

RE: Hello, Looking to get into a TT

The first thing you need to do is make up your mind about a boat or an RV. I have owned both. If you live on a lake (I did and had a dock for two boats) you will get more use out of a boat. If not, I would definitely go with the RV. If you decide on an RV you need to decide what type will fit your needs. They're not one size fits all. Most people start using tents and move to another form of camping when tenting gets old. I was about 53 when tenting got old but after buying our first trailer, a hybrid, we wished we had bought one earlier and taken more trips as a family rather than just going camping for a few days in the tents. Only you can decide what you want to do. We now have the trailer in the signature and do not plan to change. I can get up the steps now but would hate to have more steps inside so no 5er for me. Same with a motorhome, too many steps. My dad had many RV's from truck campers to Class A's so I had experience with RV's. I would suggest renting one (mostly Class C motorhomes available for rental around here) just to determine if you really want an RV at all. Good luck with your decision.

RE: What's on Your Christmas Wish List?

Safe arrival of our first grandchild. He is due Jan. 2 but parents are hoping for an early Christmas present. We (grandparents) don't really care when as long as mom and baby are healthy.

RE: Avoiding Atlanta

We just came home from NC last month. We took I-85 to Atlanta and then I-20 to Dallas just to avoid I-40 from Memphis to Little Rock. It was about 200 miles longer but far less travel time. They seem to work on that section of I-40 all the time. I think they dig pot holes and then fill them just to make work. The trip thru Atlanta on a Saturday afternoon was simple.

RE: TPMS and tire balancing

I had my new tires balanced and then installed the sensors. Can't tell any difference and have pulled it several thousand miles since installing sensors.
