RE: What does fresh epdm look like?

Where has civility gone. One guy makes an error and then he gets poured with invective words. A mistake can be pointed out with words more civil the Hogwash and Crap.

RE: Vehicle GPS's

Thanks Golden I have the small GPS silver dollar antenna that I used with Streets and Trips. I was thinking tho of purchasing a dash mounted GPS designed for vehicles. I was wondering if any of them have a trip planning mode.

Vehicle GPS's

I have used Streets and Trips from the first year it was produced. But, now that S&T are not being updated I have decided to purchase a gps made for vehicles. My question - What vehicle GPS is best for Trip Planning. Do any of them compare with S&T's trip planning capabilities. Do Vehicle GPS's have a campground searcher.

RE: A concern about tires..

I have tried all sort of LT tires on our fiver, which know has over 130,000 road miles on the axles. Eight years ago I discovered the Michelin XPX rib tire. It is the best trouble free tire we have ever had. I am now on my second set of XPS ribbed tires. I wouldn't even consider anything else. The worst tires we used were ST tires. We never made trip with the Goodyear Marathon ST tires that we didn't have at least one tire failure.

RE: Mobile repair vs Dealers?

I used the dealer for our warranty repairs when we purchased our fiver fifteen years ago. After that I did all of the repair work for several years. Now that I am in my late 70's and am not so handy crawling up ladders, walking on the roof or sliding into tight places I rely on our mobile repair man who is very good and fair in pricing. If your are in the Tampa Bay area and need an rv repair man, send me a private message and I will tell you how to contact him.

RE: Homestead

In Florida I think the only thing it saves you is a discount on the property tax. Since you don't pay property tax on an RV in Florida I don't see any advantage to homesteading your motor home. I have never heard of anyone getting a homestead on an RV in Florida.

RE: 7 Pin Trailer Connection falling out of TV outlet

If all else fails replace the receptacle on your truck. I would suspect that the spring on the lid of your present receptacle is broken and won't hold the plug from the trailer firmly.

RE: Recommend Tire Pressure

I have always put max pressure in my fiver's tires.

RE: Air compressor

I use a 1 gal pancake tank compressor I purchased at WalMart for $55. It will produce pressures up to 120psi.

RE: 2015 Ford F-350 0-60 MPH Test

Gee, who cares what the 0 to 60 mph times are. Trucks are designed and used for hauling and towing not drag racing.

RE: Towing at night in hot weather

I have an Edge Scangauge mounted on my dash to tell me the coolant temperatures and mounted on the pillar are gauges to tell me fuel pressure, transmission and exhaust gas temperatures. I have found I had to back off climbing mountains in hot weather or I would have exceeded operation temperatures on either the transmission or exhaust gas. The coolant temperatures were always OK. https://edgeproducts.com/

RE: Andersen Fifth Wheel Hitch Conversion

Do they make a conversion to convert the fiver hitch pin to a ball hitch? Looks to me that, that ball hitch would be extremely difficult to hitch your fiver too. You would have to get the ball maneuvered just right to line up with the ball and then climb in the bed of the truck to lock the hitch.

RE: Your Valued Opinion Please

Our fiver is 15 years old. It has two slides and neither has an awning. We have never had a problem with the slides leaking. In my opinion, slide awnings are just something else to maintain. Having slide awnings might be a deal breaker for us.

RE: Antioch, CA (east Bay area)

I have stayed at the Antioch fairgrounds. It is usable and has water and electricity, but it has no scenery. It is like parking on a large gravel road.

RE: Attaching to Fiberglass

Having built a large fiberglass sail boat I have no problem with mounting the side to side level on the front fiberglass cap with screws. Use stainless steel screws to ensure no rusting. Where the screw goes, drill a hole through the fiberglass that is just slightly smaller diameter than the screw diameter. Then, put sealant in the hole you drilled and also on the bottom side of the screw head. Don't over tighten the screw, but do make sure it is firmly holding the level against the fiberglass. When done use mineral spirits to clean up any excess sealant. Mounting it this way will ensure it will not come off and that you will have a leak proof connection.

RE: Is it okay to drop my tip out beds at rest stops or Walmart?

We travel all over the United States and Canada and have never seen the need to park anywhere but in a campground. I wondered if campgrounds are intimidating to some or if they are just saving a buck or two. Some of the campgrounds are not the best, but they all have hookups of some sort and it is much quieter than parking lots, rest areas and fuel stations.

RE: 32 vs 38

We stay about four months out of the year in our fiver. We have the wonderlust and don't stay in one place for more than a week to ten days. We do like to see things we have never seen before. So, my wife and I traded down from a 34 ft CarriLite to a 30 ft Cameo. For us, it is just the right size for traveling and taking care of our needs. Our fiver now has over 140,000 miles on it and we are getting it ready to leave in May for another tour of the country. Bigger is not better for us.
