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.

RE: Anyone Replaced The Integrated Brake Controller?

I have used all sorts of controllers, but the integrated brake controller that came with my truck in 2005 is, hands down, the best controller I have ever used. If it stopped working I would pay to have it fixed.

RE: So light a child can remove it from the truck

That Anderson ball fifth wheel hitch looks like it would be really difficult to hook up to your fiver. I don't think I could readily line up my fiver to hit that little ball. The video seemed to skip over how you hook up. Or, am I missing something?

RE: IPHONE 6 (battery usage)

My phone discharges overnight if I forget to disable my "map my walk" app. Perhaps you have some app that is using up your battery.

RE: tire advice

I have been running Michelin xps rib tires for ten years now. Before finding these tires I tried many different brand of tires. Everything I purchased seemed to go flat, disintegrate or blow out. Since I went to the ribs I haven't had a moment of trouble. I did have a flat, but that was a Schrader valve problem. If your just pulling your fiver to a local campground you probably don't need the rib tires, but if you are like us and roam all over North America the ribs certainly bring peace of mind.

Roadside Assistance

I have had Good Sam Roadside Assistance for the past four years. In that time, I have called them for assistance twice. Once was to change a flat tire in the hot summer sun. The other instance was when we were in the need of a tow. Both times, things occurred that ended in our not getting Good Sam's assistance. During the flat tire incident we were in Georgia on I-95 and in sight of exit 42. I called and told the Good Sam representative that we were southbound and stopped on the shoulder of I-95 in Georgia. I told them we were just north of exit 42. After a looong wait and several phone calls we found that the assistance vehicle was at exit 42 in South Carolina. I was so frustrated I canceled the request and changed the tire myself. The next instance when I called Good Sam we were on US HWY 280 in Alabama. We were about five miles southeast of Alexander City, AL. We needed a tow as the engine would not start. We wanted a tow to the Ford garage in Alexander City. We were told that it would be a couple of hours for the tow truck to arrive and they would tow us to a Pep Boys, which was some 50 miles away. They would not tow us to the Ford garage five miles down the road. We opted to get our own tow to the Ford garage. That is our experience with Good Sam Assistance. I am now wrestling with whether or not to renew it. Does anyone have a recommendation for other companies who offer such roadside service? Or, perhaps enlighten me on how to summon help with tire changes and towing in some other manner. I used to change tires myself, but now that I am 77 I would rather pay for such things.

RE: CG Rules - New Trends?

It's private property, and they can impose any rules they wish. If they get too ridiculous, they they'll start losing customer's business. I wonder if the bicycle helmet rule is based upon some liability issue they've dealt with in the past? I wouldn't put it past some people to get injured riding their bikes, then sue the campground for their own lack of responsibility. I was thinking the same thing.

RE: Secondary road may not save time

If your retired you can take your time to see and smell the flowers. If the road is windy "so what" as long as you drive safe.

RE: All these questions on routing???

Yes I have been wondering about that also. But, maybe our military experience was good for something. We learned how to navigate and read and interrupt maps.

RE: To stock or do not stock

We have used, and will use again if needed, our fiver for hurricane evacuation, but we don't keep it stocked with food and clothing. A hurricane is not like a tornado that occurs quickly with little warning. One has hurricane warnings days ahead of the hurricane actually striking that allows you ample time to load up and go. When you evacuate stay off the interstates though. Plot your escape on secondary roads, if possible, as they will not be grid locked with traffic.
