RE: old rig

Years ago, I traded in my Ford F-150 for a bigger GM truck. About 6 months after that I saw it one day at our local transfer station. I walked over to the owner and said, "that's my old truck". He asked me how I knew, and I showed him the one ding it had, in a very unusual place. I told him how I got it. He complemented me on how well I took care of it and the low mileage it had for its age (6 yrs). It was nice seeing it.

RE: Michelin XPS ribs on fiver and truck?

XPS Ribs do not come in "G"s. They are E rated and I love them on my signature 5ver. My local tire guy told me I would never wear them out, that they would rot first. This upcoming fall makes them 7 years old, and have no cracks and plenty of tread. I do cover them and use 303 UV protectant on them. This will probably be my last year before buying another set, but some say the have a 10 year lifespan. They have over 20K miles on them. When they were installed they were only 4 months old based on the DOT date. I have Michelin LTX MS/2s on my truck, E rated, 265s R16s. I love them, they seem to be wearing OK. They are wider than the OEM 245s I had on there and I can tell the difference. Hope this helps. Mike

RE: Auxiliary Fuel Tank options

I replaced my 26 gal OEM tank with a Titan 52 gal tank.....I like that I doubled my range. As far as the gas gauge goes, since I doubled the tank size it's easy to do the math...I didn't have the computer reprogrammed.

RE: Polish front nose cap?

I'm sure most folks will be shaking their heads, I wax my front cap after each trip out and sometimes in between. I can't stand it being dirty or having black streaks....and No, I am not retired, but getting pretty close. I do all my waxing by hand and the whole rig gets waxed twice a year...and I'm beat when I finish.

RE: generator needed but what size and kind

If you're going the route of 2 generators using the parallel wiring kit....I strongly suggest a pair of Yamahas....CW is always pushing red over blue. Blue has a few features that red doesn't....last time I checked. Do some homework. Yes, I have a Yamaha and love it. Good Luck.

RE: Which LT tires have you been happy with?

Michelin XPS RIBS on 5ver and LTX M/S2 on the TV. All my vehicles run Michelin's...

RE: Best years for used Duramax?

I Love my 2008 LMM, we bought it new. I have added bigger wheels and tires, replaced the original fuel tank with a 52 gal titan, and added a VVT brake.....it has 34,000 miles on it, barely broken in!! Yep, it sits garaged, and I only use it to tow my 5ver. I hope it lasts another 8 years...I just replaced both original batteries. With diesel fuel very reasonable, I'm thinking of parking my MDX, which uses premium, and making it my daily vehicle.

RE: Cost cutting at Cedar Creek?

We've never used the water filter that came with ours....we usually bring our own water to drink and cook with. I'd bet CC isn't the only guys cheapening their products.

RE: Flagpole suggestions

Totally agree with Dick_B - my flag pole holder is mounted to my TrailAir pin box. The PVC pole is about 3 ft high, and angles about 60 degrees, allowing the flag to freely wave. The cast mount is the kind you would install (using screws) into your house or a pillar.

RE: Won't ever buy a Keystone RV

Agree with last post about straight wages....Manufacturers may find more repeat business, better reviews, and more business in general.

RE: dual pane windows

Kotz - you haven't had your 5ver long enough to experience flexing while driving as previously mentioned...let us know in 2 or 3 years if they are still condensation free. I always thought I wanted them on my next rig, but after reading this, maybe the $$ isn't worth it....I know I'd be mad if after a year of 2, they were fogging.....we have never had an issue with noise. Currently, we use the "foil" insulation when experiencing temp extremes. To each his own.....

RE: Your Rig

Desiphil - we love the floor plan of the 3450 - we recently looked at one, however, we'd need a bigger truck. The 3450 will have to wait a while for us....hope you enjoy yours and it lives up to expectations. Mike

RE: Travel day - 26 MPH winds forecast

If you must keep schedule leave as planned. While on the road take your cue from the Semis...if you see them pulled over, do the same. Of course only you know your comfort level. Good Luck.
