RE: Pulling Power

I have a 2012 new off the lot Big Country. I did not have a truck at all, so i think i have a say. First off i did some research and found that the 38 ft. ran at 17000 lbs. So i bought a brand new 2011 trailer kit GMC SIERRA 3500 HD long box 4 wheel drive crew cab and put a 16000k hitch by Reese. No dully just 4 wheels. My wife and I fill it to the 9s. It rides just fine. 4 wheels are a whole lot cheaper than a dully and less repairs. You have to think parking space, can wife drive that big a truck i do not think so, mine would kick me around the block. You do not need a Dully. :h :S What model Big Country do you have? Not aware that any are 17K. Whatever good luck...but be aware of what you chose.

RE: Do you use an outside TV?

We do sometimes during the summer but mostly we set up a 21" flat screen in the basement after arriving in Casa Grande, AZ for the winter in December. Weather is great for sitting outside watching football. TV stores under our bed when not in use.

RE: 95 by Reno to I40 through Flagstaff?

In the Reno area , this is our home base, the weather looks great. Lows in the upper 30's and highs in the comfortable upper 60's to mid 70's...except for Tuesday when 62 is the forecast high. Safe travels and enjoy the nice Fall weather.

RE: Millenicom Customer Accounts Acquired by Verizon

You must have not looked at the link provided a couple of posts previously. Verizon evidently has not loaded all the customer information that were Millen. accounts yet...probably a time consuming process.

RE: Dish or Direct or nothing

You can get ALL the majors on any local service. Dropping the East/West coast feeds just made sense.

RE: Millenicom Customer Accounts Acquired by Verizon

Don't you think the former customers are/ have/will take steps to get new coverage? Of course.

RE: Millenicom Customer Accounts Acquired by Verizon

It was just a matter of time. Never did make sense that a company A would allow company B to sell A's product for less than they would sell if for. Agreed. Here is my guess. Years ago VZ had excess network capacity. Rather then doing nothing with it, they sold it wholesale to Millenicom. Recently retail users are consuming more and more data. Video streaming, music, sending pictures, etcetera. The former excess capacity is gone. VZ made a good business decision to sell data at retail and not wholesale. I'm guessing they simply told Millenicom that they would no longer wholesale data to them. End of Millenicom. Best 2 comments in this whole thread!

RE: Goodyear G614 Tires

Put Sailun 637's, 235/16 G's, on our rig 1 year ago this month....$940 with steel valve stems and balanced. Our home base is Reno and a Big O store here ordered them from their warehouse over the hill in Sacramento and had them the next day as part of their normal order and were put on that day....great service. We have about 17k miles them and they show no wear and have had zero problems...have not even had to add air. Very satisfied and recommend highly.

RE: Camping with Electricity along HWY 395 California

Boulder Creek was certainly a nice stop for us. The next stop north was Topaz Casino and RV "Resort". While not as nice, it was one of the best deals we had In Topaz what kind of hookups? Full hookups...30-50amp. Wi-Fi, cable TV $20 per. We like, best in the area, and have stayed multiple times. Website

RE: Starcraft, less than 12hrs old and already issues

Well, the tittle says it all. Picked up our new star craft travel star 239tbs at 2pm and here it is 9pm and I got a list of issues going already. The biggest is the largest window blind fell clean off the window somewhere between the dealer and home. A peice of the skirting flaps in the wind, which a little movement is understandable, but this piece moves so much there is no doubt in my mind it won't last long. Also were part of the couch frame mounts to the wall it is pulling out. Along with those few things there are some minor things such as loose screws and another blind being installed incorrectly. First thing in the AM I will contact the dealer and see what they have to say. Also, and this just seems odd, to switch from the radios indoor speakers to outdoor speakers you need to use the fade control. Anyone else have a system like that? I've only ever seen ones that have a speaker switch, like A,B,C, or something similar, that's not really any issue, just a curiosity question. Sorry to whine and complain but I just needed to vent, it's a little disheartening spending $20k+ and having Sh!tty craftsmanship like this... The wife is also not very happy with these issues either. Hopefully this isn't an outlook on what to expect. Warranty should cover everything. Understand your concern but things happen with all units. All the best.

RE: Seattle to San Francisco

We'll be in Seattle next year and plan to drive to San Francisco. I notice Rt101 hugs the coast and I5 runs in land. It's about 1,000 mile drive. I'm guessing that while the coast road will be pretty, it might get to be a bit much toward the end of the trip. I'm thinking to do part of each. Suggestions/ideas are appreciated. Think the ? Is here how much time are you allowing for this drive? If extended take the 101...you won't regret it.

RE: Truck, long or short bed for towing advice needed

First...I would find the 5ver you want to purchase. Then get the truck that will pull it safely and comfortably. We like our long box for a few reasons...maybe more than the following; 1. We have a 65gal aux fuel tank which takes up some room but offers us more selectivity on where we buy fuel, $$$, and longer range before having to fuel up. 2. More storage in the box. 3. Longer wheel base means better ride. Our truck is not a problem when unhooked going wherever you want to go. ..including ATM's, shopping etc...you learn to adapt. We are out 10 months of the year so those things above are important. Again find the 5ver that you want then the truck and good luck.

RE: New Redwood Need New Truck Help

Not only the weights but the stability that the duallys give over a SRW is w/o question. Trying to beef up a 250 is tried by many but it does not change things when you are pulling the real heavy weights.

RE: Lone Pine, CA

You are right about the high fuel prices along 395 until you get way South into AZ. Our home base is Reno and when we leave to go to Casa Grande for the winter we appreciate our aux tank which gives us a little over 100 gal. of diesel on board. With that we prefer going over the Sierra's on 80 into CA and down thru Bakersfield then to Casa Grande. We don't need fuel along the way and get to take advantage of the cheaper prices when we get to our destination. Last winter we filled up before our return to Reno for $3.29 taking advantage of a .30 cent discount for buying groceries at Fry's. You learn to play the fuel prices.

RE: Crock Pot Pulled Pork

When we crockpot baby backs we use Coca Cola...16oz bottle. After 5 hours we drain the liquid then coat the ribs with Sweet Baby Ray's original for another hour...on lower heat setting. Fall off the bones and delicious.

RE: Question- Snow & Slide outs

Winter??? The following pics are from last May in Cheyenne, WY. We wouldn't be w/o our slide toppers. http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/2014132105242752.jpg http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/2014132105245396.jpg http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/2014132105302396.jpg http://www.mytripjournal.com/images/websites/67/67749/2014132105310797.jpg

RE: Portable Ice Maker

Our Magic Chef arrived today and look forward to the convieniece and not running every day and paying for 2 bags. Estimate it will pay for itself in a few months as we are out over 10 months of the year.

If you are on satellite you will have to have a receiver whereever you put a different tv. If you are hooked up to a cg's cable then any tv should work.
