RE: Curt 5th wheel adapter

Is anyone using the Curt 5th wheel adapter? Just traded trucks and have a gooseneck ball so was thinking of a way to use it. Just wondering how these adapters work for others. Have a Pro Series hitch that I think would fit on it. Also looked at the Andersen hitch, read some good and bad on it. Biggest problem seemed to be damage to truck bed. The Curt seems to be a better solution. Think I read Blue Ox makes an adapter also. Any ideas would be appreciated. I took out my gooseneck ball and installed a Curt 24K...no need for the ball.

RE: Seattle to Arizona in late October early November route?

5 to Bakersfield then 58 to I40, from there you pick to your destination. I'm not a fan of I5 road conditions, but best weather probability. I usually overnight at 7 Feathers and check road condition for passes in AM. Have taken the 5 before...once! 99 works for us...preferred!!

RE: Full Time Address - AZ

I'm an AZ resident going full time in AZ. Planning on the high country in summer and the desert in winter. DMV won't accept a PO Box or Rural Route for license & registration. Is there any issue with using an RV park address as official during the 6 month stays? I appreciate any feedback. Thank you. Did you talk to the DMV or just read something?

RE: Seattle to Arizona in late October early November route?

Our home base is Reno. This year we leave for Eloy, AZ Nov.15 (weather permitting) and we immediately get warm by taking I-80 over the hill to Woodbridge (Lodi area) for our first overnight. Then down the 99 to Bakersfield overnight. Next is CA-58 to I-40 to Needles overnight. Next for us is the 95 to Quartzsite. From there it depends where in AZ you are headed. We take the 10 East to the 85 to Gila Bend then the 8 to Eloy. Reason we go over 'the hill' right away is that it is usually cold with good chance of snow. There is already snow up in the Sierra's and Sunday there were chain controls up at Donner. Safe travels.

RE: Wintering in Nevada

RVers beware. We have spent the last 2 years wintering in a great RV Park in Pahrump Nv. Comes to our attention by Nevada DMV that non residents spending more than 30 days in Nevada must register and tag their vehicles subject to $1000 fine. You need to actually read the law you posted what you said is not true Nevada Revised Statutes 482.103 "Resident" defined. "The term does not include a person who is an actual tourist, an out-of-state student, a foreign exchange student, a border state employee or a seasonal resident." Thanks for actually seeing, reading and understanding. Here it is again and is actually explained very well; Nevada Revised Statutes 482.103 "Resident" defined. 1."Resident" includes, but is not limited to, a person: a.Whose legal residence is in the State of Nevada. b.Who engages in intrastate business and operates in such a business any motor vehicle, trailer or semi trailer, or any person maintaining such vehicles in this state, as the home state of such vehicles. c.Who physically resides in this state and engages in a trade, profession, occupation or accepts gainful employment in this state. d.Who declares himself to be a resident of this state to obtain privileges not ordinarily extended to nonresidents of this state. 2.The term does not include a person who is an actual tourist, an out-of-state student, a foreign exchange student, a border state employee or a seasonal resident. When traveling, snowbirding... we are Tourists. Lets not over think this.

RE: Will Ram 2500 be enough?

Because 2500's are restricted to a 10,000 lb GVWR, there is no need to provide springing that will accommodate a 12,000 lb GVWR, even though they use the same 11.5 in AAM rear diff, therefore they can take advantage of the better ride that coils offer. The Ram 3500 dually as shown in my signature, when equipped with the Aisin AS69RC transmission, 385/900 Cummins and 4.10 axle ratios is even more of a different animal. It's rated for 14,000 GVWR (maximum for a Class 3 truck), 15,750 combined GAWRs, 9,750 rear axle GAWR, 39,100 GCWR and 30,050 trailer tow. It uses an 11.8" AAM rear axle with additional ring gear bolting and unique heat treating with a finned aluminum axle cover for heat dissipation. In the case of the Ram, it's not accurate to say that the 2500, 3500 SRW and 3500 DRW are all basically the same truck. Rusty Just not the Ram but Chevy/GMC also. Some just refuse to believe it probably because they own a 2500.

RE: Will Ram 2500 be enough?

Hi, everybody. Don't have a 5er yet, but will soon. My question is this: I will more than likely be buying ( new or used) an Arctic Fox 27-5. I keep hearing of people pulling that basic size with 3/4 tons. I will be fulltiming it in my rv, so will be moving it around probably once a month or so. Is a 3/4 ton truck enough, I know the Arctic Fox'es are heavy, but the ride sounds better on a 3/4 ton rather than a 1 ton. Would prefer to buy 3/4 ton, but will buy 1 ton if I absolutely have to. Appreciate any and all ideas. Thank you in advance. Hard to give an answer w/o knowing the specs of the rig you think you might get. Weights (all) needed.

RE: Can't figure out new gas buddy

why do we rely on this stuff? make life easy, pay at the pump and enjoy life as it is given...I mean a few cents here and there? LOL just saying, let it go :) APPS make our lives more miserable mostly then productive out in the real world..........and of course just my opinion :)with a car I might agree but in an RV its different. we've seen price differences of as much as 25-cents. multiply that by 50-60 gallons and you're talking real money. Diesel $2.53 at our home base in Reno...$1.93 in Casa Grande, AZ where we winter. We carry when full about 100 gals. so when you do the math....

RE: Dish Network - Gaps in Service

We are talking about the additional $6/mo fee aplied when "suspending" instead of "cancelling". Doing EITHER will stop the monthly service charges, typically $120/mo. Ah...thanks for the correction. OP must be a full timer?

RE: Dish Network - Gaps in Service

You want to cancel/suspend your account for a few months at $6-$7 a month...which =$21 on the high side? Not worth the hassle or worry...IMHO of course.

RE: Recommendations for Minocqua WI

Question?? How far out of the Minoqua/Woodruff area would be acceptable for you? We'd like to be 30 minutes or less, if possible, from the Point Resort. That's where the majority of our group is staying. Having said that, we will meet downtown to gather for our daily riding outings. My suggestion is Arbor Vitae Campground. Less than 6 miles from dowmtown Minoqua. They have Full Hookups and/or Water/Electic sites. Beautiful area so enjoy wherever you stay. Website

RE: Recommendations for Minocqua WI

Heading to Minocqua WI next September after Labor Day. Am interested in people's recommendations for places to stay ... either RV Campgrounds or State/Local Parks. Need water & electricity and eventually ... a place to dump the tanks. Question?? How far out of the Minoqua/Woodruff area would be acceptable for you?

RE: What is the best BBQ grill

Nice but we don't carry charcoal when on the road. Don't like the clean up.

RE: What is the best BBQ grill

We would buy another Nexgrill if the time comes. Nexgrill tabletop. What it looks like when setup; http://i195.photobucket.com/albums/z175/PChatters/2012%20Camping%20Eagle%20Lake%207-15/2012CampingEagleLakeJuly15005.jpg

RE: (UPDATED) I need help with Photobucket dilema

OK, it'a Slideshow, not "sideshow". Sorry My Photobucket Library photos are displayed in the same way as always, except they all have that black-background checkmark in the lower right corner. And, they all seem to be stuck in the slideshow mode. If I click on the checkmark, it turns the black to blue, but it does not isolate the photo. If I try to do anything with the photo, it stays in the slideshow mode and it appears at the destination with slideshow arrows. It's no fun when EVERYONE can view all 897 of your pictures (on many different subjects). In effect, it renders Photobucket useless. HELP OOPS! I recalculated the number of photos I have, in the same album. I actually have 897 photos. So, now I'm wanting to think that there's a limit on the number of photos in one album. Does anyone know? tried to help you....I give up.
