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.

RE: Electric plug location

it is mostly standard on fivers for the 120 Volt Umbilical cord to be on the left rear of the unit.

RE: Furnace issue

Well many times it is a faulty sail switch that has to be replaced.

RE: Propane Tanks

It would be a real hassle to fill the tanks if they were permanently mounted.

RE: holding tank emptyied shows as 2/3 full

When I first started RV camping I really tried to make those holding tank lights work. Finally gave up. With experience, we have learned when it is time to dump.

RE: SHEESH! Nothing But BIG MPPT Panels?

I learned something. I learned what a MPPT panel was.

RE: Suburban Furnace stopped working

Does the air blower run, but the propane doesn't ignite? If so, it could be your out of propane or it could be the sail switch went bad. If it is the sail switch the unit will have to removed to replace it. The sail switch tells the operating mechanism that yes there is air flow the propane can be ignited. If the sail switch is inoperable the propane will never be ignited.

RE: No More Monthly Fuel Price Increases

If it's a dollar a liter that is about $3.75 a gallon. Now I know why everyone is deciding not to go to Mexico. But, then I don't know I was still pulling my fiver in the USA when diesel was that price.

RE: 1st time RV project?

It is not necessarily the skills, but the will to do such a project. The skills can be learned. I know. I built a beautiful 45 foot sailboat that sailed great and looked fantastic, but it took ten years from start to finish. I learned how to work with fiberglass, wood, plumbing, electrical, electronics, diesel engines, steel cable splicing, etc. Over the years I had to purchase a lot of power tools. But, then I had the will. I developed my skills. Oh yes, it takes money too. I started in 1983. It could be sailed in 1987, but I did not complete the inside finish woodworking till 1993. I cried when I sold it in 1998 due to health problems. But, I keep track of it. It is now owned by a guy that, at the moment, has it in St Thomas, Virgin Islands.

RE: No More Monthly Fuel Price Increases

What is the price of diesel fuel in Mexico. I sailed my boat to Panama back in 1980 and then I was paying 12 cents a gallon in Mexican ports, which was much cheaper than I was paying in the USA at the time.

RE: Will pipes freeze camping in 26 deg.weather

I have camped in our fiver for days where the temps went down to around 25°F for several nights. It was above freezing during the day. We used our furnace and electric portable heaters for warmth. There was never any problems with pipes freezing. The only time one of our water pipe froze was when it went below freezing during the day and the temp got down to 12°F that night. The pipe ran along the wall in the basement from the pump to be distributed to the campers cold water faucets. It was froze up for a day, but we had no damage to the pipes or water pump.

RE: Not Your Typical Tire Thread

I don't know if this is relevant. Perhaps Goodyear have improved their Marathon tires. But... From 1997 till 2004 I had really bad experiences with blowouts of Marathon tires. I thought I was doing something wrong. I was told that I was probably running the wrong tire pressure or I was driving too fast and many other things. I was finally wised up by a fellow fiver puller in a campground. He told me he had the same bad experiences with Marathon tires. He showed me his tires that he said made his tire problems disappear. I took his advice and threw away all my Marathon tires and purchased Michelin XPS rib tires. I have had no further problems with tires. I know pull my fiver with a peace of mind that I never had with Marathons.

RE: Not Your Typical Tire Thread

That's interesting about changing the bearings. My fiver has over 110,000 miles on it and they are still the original bearings. I repack them every year and they still look good. Any opinions from others?

RE: Loading my Golf Car into the bed of my 3500 Dodge TV

I hauled in a golf cart in my truck, see signature. I purchased a 1500 lb capacity ramp from Harbor Freight. (http://www.harborfreight.com/super-wide-tri-fold-loading-ramp-90018.html). My truck is a long bed and the golf cart fit easily in the bed with room to spare. It was no problem. I just drove it on and backed it off. I secured it with ropes like I would tie a boat to a dock using the cleats that were factory installed in the bed of the truck. I ran a rope from the front cleats to the back bumper of the cart and ropes from the back cleat to the front bumper.

RE: Tow training for DW

My wife and I share the on the road driving. We each drive 100 miles and switch. We are now both over 70 so we limit our driving between night stopovers to no more than 300 miles. Works for us. Like said above she wanted to drive from the very first. I had to help her with learning how to turn without running the fivers wheels over a curb, but she has become a dang good driver. We put about 6000 miles on our rig each summer.

RE: Most ridiculous accessory..... ever???

I rarely eat those heart attacks, but when I do I love the combination of mustard, ketchup, relish and chopped onions on my dogs.
