RE: Tripod on 5th wheel

I also only use mine when staying longer than a weekend trip. It seems to help a fair amount on our rig....but it is a pain to break it out from the basement, which is why it only gets used on extended stays.

RE: Auxiliary gas tank

I also replaced my stinking small 26Gal OEM tank with a Titan 52Gal tank...what a difference, I don't have to sweat stopping every 250 miles....allows us to look for cheaper fuel, and go a full day without refueling....of course my DW and our Golden have to take breaks....allows us to stop at rest stops and not worry about fuel. Makes me wonder whose idea it was to design a "hauling" type truck with such a small tank. Mike

RE: At what point does length cease to matter?

DD992emo - sounds like you might have been the Electronics Maintenance Officer......trying to recall if I saw the Fletcher at NOB back in the late 70's ?? We plan on replacing our 34' with something slightly under 38' and am interested in the responses... Thanks for asking. Mike ET1 CV-62 (USS Independence)

RE: Why I'm Proud To Be A "Creeker"

Our 2009 Silverback was damaged way worse than MPI-Mallard's....due to the same frame flex. The last straw happened while in New Brunswick, Canada. The frame was sitting on our Trailair hitch...and the 3" opening was 2/3s around the front - in the same location as MPI-Mallards. We called CC and they said no problem they would fix it at no cost, their wide bodied trailers had been having this problem. They (even) picked it up at our house (MD) and took it to the factory. Denise Davis and crew were fantastic, she gave us an update at least once a week, they had it around 3 weeks or so. We decided we' pick it up to meet her and crew, and see the factory. The CCRVOC members were having a luncheon for the factory on the day we arrived...we got to see many friends that we hadn't seen in about 5 years. Our baby was better than new, they did an incredible job...they even gave us a new trailair hitch, replaced ALL our slide seals, repaired our front closet, which was total destroyed from all the flexing - and they gave us a new set of stairs....all at their cost. We are creeker's for life....when I told Denise we had already decided on our next model, her response was, we wanna give you a good trade-in!! Talk about customer service. Hats off to Denise, CC, and Ray Sager (fellow CCRVOC member). Mike & Carol Kieber

RE: Cedar Creek 36CK2 vs. 34RL2?

I am watching this thread, as these are the 2 models we are also considering....however, buying a DRW would have to come first for the 38CK2....not necessarily for the 34RL2.... We are 'creekers' for life....after the no cost warranty work we received on our 2009 this summer. Denise Davis and crew were FANTASTIC!

You'll never catch me buying a Keystone product. To OLD GUY - you complained about FR - do you know how many brands FR makes? How about IDing which brand you were unhappy with. Maybe that is the division you should be complaining about. For what the Cedar Creek division of FR has done for my 2009 this summer, has made me looking into buying another. Mike

RE: Cedar Creek Owners

TOTALLY agree with MPI_Mallard....we are "Creekers" for life...after the way they just treated us on the repair of our 2009 Silverback wide body. Ask anybody that is a member of the Cedar Creek RV Owners Club (CCRVOC)what they think. Mike

RE: Cedar Creek Owners

I have a short bed with a manual slider. Have NEVER had to use it for my signature rig in the 7+ years of hauling....and the trailer has been very very close to 90 deg....the dealer did it to show it could be done without using the slider. We are also interested in the 34RE and 34RL2. Good Luck

RE: Was retirement for you a good or not so good choice?

Wife & I have enjoyed reading this topic...since I am deciding on retiring next summer or waiting until Jan2018. She will have a few more years to go, but I think she will minimize "few". I'll be 59+ and want to continue traveling while I have my health. Don't want to say "I wish I had".....She's a teacher, so we can take the summers off while she continues to work....plenty of home projects..health more of a concern than $. Thanks guys. Mike

RE: Rear Suspension Air Bags for my truck

Another fan of the Rite Ride airbag system. I have the onboard compressor, which at times I will adjust on the fly. I had my 5ver dealer install them when we bought our signature 5ver. Still working like a champ.

RE: Rig destroyed today!

That's really scary....glad that you had sense to get out, and NOT try to save anything from the trailer. Glad all 3 of you are OK. As folks have said, keep us posted...that could have been any one of us. Good Luck, Mike

RE: 2016-17 Cedar Creek RE

I too am very much interested in making my NEXT CC the 34RE...although, I am hoping to get a few more years our of my 7 year old model, which has been great up until recently - but read the rest of the story.... First of all - check with the Cedar Creek RV Owners Club website...I think you can check it out with joining the club...you may not be able to post. You will find many folks that have owned more than 2 CCs. I can't imagine a manufacturer giving better service that CC. We just came back from the factory because we had a major weld failure in which our front cap ended up sitting on our Trailair kingpin for about 800 miles on our way home from Canada. Called CC customer service, spoke with Denise Davis - and everything was taken care of as it was a known problem with some wide bodies trailers, which ours is. They even came to MD to pick it up and take it back to Topeka, IN. They had LCI fix the welding, they replaced our damaged closet, gave us a new cap, and Trailair king pin hitch (didn't really need once). They did several other repairs and considered it all warranty work! They would have covered shipping it back, but wife & I wanted to visit the factory. They could have charged us for some of their fixes, but didn't. Denise and her crew were FANTASTIC and very professional. They had it for about 1 month, and she gave us weekly updates as to the progress. It's better than when it was new! We are Creekers for Life. Good luck with your decision...but I know what I'd suggest. Mike

RE: 2016 MS36RSSB3 Review and Weight's update

WOW Jim - just catching up and can't believe your luck....but I am so glad that things turned out in your favor. I think your health is gonna be just fine. Look at what you've gone through my friend! Load her up and hit the road...after your house sale closes. Keep us posted as to your where abouts...remember, we have to link up. Mike

RE: 2016 MS36RSSB3 Review and Weight's update

Hey Jim - I've been following all this "retirement" talk that's been bantered.....I was planning on next July, but after reading the last half of this thread I may have to change it to Jan17..... What do you think of TJ's Campingworld? Would you buy from them again? Recommend them to your friends? PM me if you if you don't want to publicly state your true feelings. I previously told you about our CC Silverback's woes.....CC is moving a head with the repairs. LCI parts and welders arrive at their plant tomorrow to start the repairs. They told us it wasn't the worst failure they've seen, but it was very bad. Cedar Creek has been GREAT to us....maybe we'll have it back in less than a month. Good Luck Saturday - Enjoy every minute. Go Mountaineers!! Mike

RE: WVa flooding got my TH

Jim, It may not sound "manly", but those pics make me want to cry....I just kept saying, Oh my... You're are strong of character, if we weren't on the road in the opposite direction, I'd come and lend a hand. Keep the faith, brother. Mike

RE: 2011 Cedar Creek RE 5th Wheel Low Voltage Battery Issues

If you find out that you need to replace your converter, (you can take some measurements to see if it is putting out DC - which I did to confirm my OEM was shot) - Highly recommend the Progressive Dynamics version that comes with a charge wizard (I believe that is what its called). It plugs into the converter and there is a green LED that flashes (I ran mine into my fuse bank, which is located in the front of my main cabin, floor level under my entertainment center). Depending on the flash rate, I know what my converter is doing to the batteries. I love it. Good Luck.
