RE: What type of lubricant to use?

Teflon Plate and a can of White Lithium spray on grease.

RE: Plans for the 4th?

We never camp on the holidays...usually go the weekend before or weekend after....it's pure crazy out there. Don't know where people's brains go during these periods...well, I do, but this would get deleted. Staying away from the crazies!

RE: New 5th wheel?

WE STILL love our 2009 CC Silverback and have only 1 problem...the converter died last year - easy replacement. We still get compliments on the finish. I'd by another CC.

I won't bash...but, time will tell if the quality and the support will be the same going forward as it has been in the past - since they've been bought out.

RE: Montana Front Cap Graphics

The graphics on our 2009 CC Silverback are holding up fairly well. The bear on the rear does have a crack, but it is not peeling up. The color of all the graphics are holding up very well....very slight fade on the sunny side. I also use 303 protectant on my decals quite often.

RE: Maybe next week

I hope the trip to the dealer isn't too far! Good Luck, and maybe watch your speed.

RE: electric landing gear

What kind of TV do you have? My 2008 GMC did not have the fuse in the fuse box that allowed me to being charging the battery when hooked up to the truck....discovered it after 5 years and that was by luck.....it was when my converter failed (which I knew) and hooking up to the truck did not charge the battery and hence I could not raise my landing gear.

RE: Buying FW

If possible, he could do what I did to increase my rear axle margin, which was creeping up to the limit. I bought wider tires and stronger wheels (wheels had to be wider as the LT265s would not fit on OEM wheels). No, I did not change axles...but the rear axle limit was based on the tire's capacity - and it's cheaper than a new truck (dually). Now, this does not change the door jam listed limits, but in reality, it does give me more capacity....I have NOT increased my load by adding more items in the 5ver, but I have increased my margin. Believe it or not the wider tires also give me a tad more stability - which I noticed right away. Good "hunting"

RE: Trailer Covers

I too am part of the group that started out with a cover, but it now sits stored in a large garbage can...the wind put holes in the corners the first year we had it for our 5ver- and we padded the corners, as we learned that when we covered out TT. It seemed to work slightly better on the TT, but not even close on the 5th....no more. And yes, you need a good helper to put on and take off.

RE: Purchasing from a distant dealer

Obviously Taken doesn't care about depreciation.....I will agree about the thrill with buying new.

RE: Purchasing from a distant dealer

You might be able to afford it, Taken, but it might also say you haven't found a rig that you like....and, you haven't really owned one long enough to have any warrantee work done...you just trade for a new one...have you gone through as many TVs as well? Why don't you just buy a New Horizon, and be done with it.

RE: Looking at a 2008 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD - advice?

I love my 2008 LMM, no real problems. I also hated the 26 gal tank, and replaced it with a Titan 52 gal tank. Love the range now. I get 10.5 - 11 mpg hauling my Silverback. With only 32,600 miles, I hope it lasts me many more years. I am looking to add a BD VVT brake for better braking. The tow/haul mode does a decent job, but I think the VVT will help. It's regened a few times while towing, but for the most part I have no complaints about that. I did add stronger(wider) wheels and wider tires to increase my towing margin on the rear.

RE: are you towing with a short bed crew cab?

Signature 5ver has been 90 degres, while hooked to our short bed Sierra Crew Cab, and I did NOT have to use my manual slider. I've never had to use it - we've had this trailer since Feb09. Front Cap does have cut outs on the edges....

RE: Would you buy a Silverback Rv again?

we still love our 2009 Silverback....next time around I would buy a Cedar Creek (now that I can't buy an Excel, and the verdict isn't in on the "new" Mobile Suites...there is a difference between the two CC model lines.

RE: Fridge Drain

I too, did exactly what oldhippie did....it's worked great for 2 years.

RE: Forest River Customer Service

X3 on the positive when dealing with CC customer service - both in and out of warranty period!

RE: New Roof Increase Gas Mileage by 43%

On the serious side of things I wonder if you would have noticed any difference in the inside temperature of your RV. The additional comments were pretty funny.....agree the OP should have waited longer and let things play out.

RE: diesel lanes

When using Flying J/Pilot I use the truck lanes - and my D/A can handle the larger nozzles...I always get out of the lane as quickly as possible...however, I have had truckers block me in while they were BSing with their cell phones....lucky there wasn't anybody behind me, and I backed all the way out until I could go around the fueling lanes....I was really ticked about how rude they were.

RE: Entry door window

Yea, I don't think I like it for me, from the safety standpoint....I like the professional looking install that the OP did.
Splashers3 04/05/15 07:35am Fifth-Wheels

We always double check to make sure doors are locked. I also replaced my compartment key locks, that everybody has a key to, with the 3 dial-10 digit combi locks. AS previously mentioned, I too, have my hitch (two of the pins) locked down to the truck's floor. Real crooks will break in if they want...but they may look for an easier target.
