RE: This is a long shot.

This is a long shot.

My wife and I are trying to save a down payment for a house, so we are looking ahead to a stay in the RGV. The last time we were there, we found a bare bones campground between Mission and Mcallen, Tx. I don't remember the name of the place but recall a herd of goats penned in the front of it. Any ideas?

RE: at wits end

resolved. I finally got my credit back in full. I did call the credit card company and they told me to wait 30 days before making the complaint. The CG took full blame and did the right thing.

RE: at wits end

The first move is to resolve it amicably. At the time there was no reason to jump the gun. Most Campgrounds are trustworthy and want your return visit. I already mentioned calling the credit card company, I need viable solutions, thanks for your thoughts.

at wits end

Three weeks ago, we reserved a spot at Wildwood Village, Wildwood, Fl. I cancelled the following day, but not after they had already taken out a $500 deposit from my credit card. The reservation was not until Dec 01 of this year for what would have been six months. I called a total of four times to ask why my money wasn't credited back to the card and told each time that they would look into it. The last two times they said it was resolved, but when I called back three days ago the clerk couldn't find any record of me. Finally after waiting on hold she found my papers and promised once again that the money would be credited. Three days have passed since then. If nothing happens by next week, I'm contacting the florida Fraud department and make a complaint. I also will call the credit card and let them know. Do you have any further suggestions? Thanks.

RE: fifth wheel hitch

I have the same truck, but with a hemi. Since it came with a goose neck, it was a no brainer to get a Champion hitch for it. When its removed, your left with a completely flat bed, no rails. The hitch is super easy to hook up. there's no rattle for and aft, just a snug fit. I've had this set up for three years and wouldn't change anything.

RE: Window screen replacement

your dealer can get that for you.

RE: Fifth Wheels and Motorcycles

A Toyhauler would seem perfect for you. You could store the bike under the front overhang. A good boat shop can make a snap on tent enclosure for it.

RE: Rear Landing Gear Clearance???

bent one of mine because of the same problem and had to replace it. my new trailer is even worse with little clearance. If I lose these I'm replacing them with finger jacks.

RE: Fifth wheel hitch suggestion

Did the truck come with a gooseneck ball in the bed. I have the Champion adapter and love it.

solo tire pressure

Since I won't be towing my 5th wheel for a few months, I'd like to improve the ride of our daily driver. How low can I go. We have a 2014 Ram 2500 2x2 Big Horn with 18 inch wheels.

Looking to spend next winter in Leesburg, Fl. Preferably near Planet fitness and walmart. We are retired with one 14 lb dachshund. Our trailer is a 2015 34 ft 5th wheel, thanks.

RE: true hemi gas mileage ?

2014 2500 5.7. I get 18 to 21 flat ground empty doing 60 hwy. towing 10,500 5th wheel, 8 to 10 flat ground, 60 hwy. Last trailer with this truck was 8500 and I got around 2mpg better towing and 20-22 flat ground empty at 60 mpg flat ground. Speed is important for optimum mileage.

RE: 5.7 ram 2500 owners, have you done this?

rob, a cabin for six months would be expensive. I already have the trailer.

5.7 ram 2500 owners, have you done this?

I have a 2014 Ram 2500 with a 5.7 hemi and 3.73 rear end. I pull a 10,500 lb fully loaded 5th wheel, which is 900 lbs under max for this truck. I pull it locally on mostly flat ground and live in it so its parked in El Paso for most of the year. I would like to haul it up the mountain, around 4-6 percent grade. The entire trip from our home base in El Paso is under two hours. The last 4 miles is an 8 percent grade. I would like to hear from 2500 owners with a 5.7 combo that could tell me first hand how well the truck did on similar trips. I could get a hauler to do this, but I don't know whether or not they have the proper Insurance. Another problem is that long trip haulers don't want to touch small jobs. That leaves the local yokels, RV shop owners and truck owners that do this part time. If you can get one to find the time and have the proper insurance. So, I'd rather do it myself if I can. The sight is seasonal and only has to be done once a year. your thoughts? thanks and please don't tell me I need to replace my near new truck for a $50,000 diesel for that extra 4 miles. That ain't happening. :R

RE: Type of lube on fifth wheel pin

lube ring, clean and dry

Where to winter and have everything cheaply.

Seasonal rates in Florida campgrounds have become expensive as well as in Arizona. Anyone compromising with a stay in El Paso,Tx? I didn't care for buggy Florida or the high crime there. South Tex is reasonably priced, but the hummudity was getting to me and my wife, so we went North to El Paso. The dry weather has been great for us. The mountains are a short drive away and the shopping has everything we need, including good restaurants. An added bonus is the low crime rate and friendly people. Winters are around ten degrees cooler than Mesa, but doable with electric heaters. The days are warm and sunny.

RE: Truck stop fueling

Flying J and Love's have RV friendly bays away from the OTR trucks.

RE: Ezpass

Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia and West Virginia. Not accepted west of Ohio. Fortunately, the western states have very few toll roads. None of the Interstates out west have them that I know of. Gas is cheaper out west until you get to California. Prices there can be quite high. Save your overnight CG expenses by staying at Flying J and Love Truck stops, Cracklebarrel Restaurants and Walmarts. I don't use rest areas that are close to cities. Some out in western suburbia can be very quiet and safe. I also use County, State, and National Park CG. Stay safe.
