RE: looking at 5th wheels with rear kitchen

Id just make dam sure the reffer is NOT in the rear. Worst design iv ever seen, they collect ALL of the road dirt. Not Really an issue, they all gather dirt. Hummm...I have had both RL and RK rigs and never noticed any appreciable difference with dirty refrigerators (vents)...if that is what the comment is addressing. Our reefer is in the rear and has never been an issue for us to include "road dirt". I guess I could understand why that would be a problem IF you're driving dirt roads at highway speeds! :R

RE: looking at 5th wheels with rear kitchen

We love our 2012 Montana 3585SA with rear kitchen because of the large space and a great amount of counter tops. Unfortunately it has been discontinued. Glad we got ours when we did!

RE: Disc Brakes: 1 Piece Rotor/Hub vs. 2-Piece Rotor & Idler Hub

There is a higher chance of balance problems with the 2 piece hub and rotor as the rotor must have some clearance to be able to install it on the hub. Other than that they are about the same. I went with one piece and am very happy with them. I am also installing disc brakes in the Spring and researched this. For the reason stated above I have also decided on the one piece hub/rotor from Kodiak.

RE: Purchase of Cruise America Rental Class C

My son's in-laws bought a rental and the only problem I had with it was NO SLIDE OUTS. Very cramped inside but they did not buy it for me. Not sure if it was a CA rental or some other one. They have been very happy with it for about 3 years.

RE: Direct or Dish TV

I am not sure if I want to spend $1200 for the roof mounted direct tv (it voids the warranty) or tripod version. Rumor has it that the tripod will give you headaches trying to get all 3 satellites. Any advice for a newbie? Thanks We have been full timing for going on 7 years and are with Dish Network and very happy with it. I use a Dish 1000.2 dish with a Hybrid EA LNB that uses the 61.5 & 72 birds and mount it to a surveyors tripod using the mounting/pointing kit that I got from TV4RV.com. This makes for a pretty simple set up and can be done normally in about 10-15 minutes.

RE: 50 Amp Power Cord Sgtorage

I bought a manual MorRyde brand reel (their cheapest version) and mounted it to my ladder at about eye level. It accepts all my 50 amp cord and works great. Really saves the old back! Reel and connection are on the same rear corner of my 5th wheel. Cost was less than $100.

RE: Frame Failure

Look at the axle and u bolts.Better prepare a reply for "severe jack knifing is the cause".How is the tire wear?The tire looks to be touching also or very close to it,probably hit you with overloading comments too. I hear you...have to get to a real close 90 to get it parked on the pad at home, but definetly no jack knifing and most definelty no overloading, we keep to the bare essentials for weekend trips. I don't even carry any water in the holding tank, can't see carrying the extra weight... Although "a real close 90" is technically not a "jack knife" it does put a severe twist on your axles the same as a jack knife. As a retired trucker of 20 years I have seen the damage that can be done even to commercial trailer suspensions if loaded and put under such stress. I avoid at all cost going over a 45 when backing mine. There is always another way of getting in that spot or find another more suitable spot.

RE: Hate seeing sewer hose being cleaned on site

State Park in MS last week. Someone had a beer in one hand and his hose in the other, going beside his camper in the grass. What's your point? This is SOP in Mississippi !

RE: Are these any Good? - Stabliziers

Original Poster here - Thank you to everyone who took the time to reply. Will check out the other products mentioned and the measurements between their wheels. In my opinion you should also check if they have an automatic leveling system too. We have the Lippert 6 Point Hydraulic Leveling System on our fiver and never feel the need tor anything else. The item you asked about is ok but you could be wasting your money on them.

RE: Online wholesale RV dealers - any experiences?

This is a public thread, why do people say "I sent you a private message"? Why not say it here for everyone to see and maybe learn something?? I have to agree! Just WHAT could be such a secret? Was some kind of "good buddy" code detected? :W

RE: Rv surge protector

Don't waste your money on a "surge protector". Spend a little more and get a Progressive Industries Electrical Management System. Works great and is a great company that stands behind their product.

RE: Looking for Opinions on Keystone Montana for Full Timing

We have also been very happy full timing in a Montana for 6 years. South East Tennessee is as far north as we have been in winter and I wouldn't want to go farther in anyone's fifth wheel. Brrrrrrrrrrrr.

RE: Smart RV products / Frig Fix

We had eggs freeze on the top shelf and warm drinks on the bottom. Bought a cheap fan to move the air inside the fridge. Uses 2 D cell batteries. It works, everything in the fridge at same temp and plenty cold. A permanently wired one would be nice but the little battery one works well. Why didn't you move your eggs to the bottom and your drinks to the top? That's the way we have ours and it works fine.

RE: How many pounds in your air bags?

I put 20 psi in mine before hooking and then it will show 38 psi. Just right for mine.

RE: Rear Suspension Air Bags for my truck

I have had both the Firestone air bags and the Timbrens and didn't really like them. Now I have the Air Lift bags with on-board compressor and really like them. The bags are more substantial than the Firestones and the compressor automatically keeps the minimum 5 psi in the bags when not towing.

RE: Heartland vs. Montana

Did you know that the cabinet doors, fascia and other "wood" trim in the Montana (and others in the same class) are cardboard with wood grain print on the top? Not sure what else might be "faux" in the newer 5th wheels in order to make them bigger, fancier looking and lighter. Thermofoil Contruction This used to be true but changed for Montana somewhere around 2010 model year. Our 2008 Montana was like this but our 2012 Montana has nothing but solid wood. Ours is the Hickory Edition.

RE: How many pounds in your air bags?

I'm interested in this too b/c I am about to install a set of the Firestone air bags on my truck. Do yourself a favor and check out the Air Lift bags before getting the Firestones. I have had both and find the Air Lifts to be higher quality.

RE: Installed ceiling fan

I've just got to ask. Why a 12vdc fan when you have 110vac already right there for the A/C prep?:h

RE: 2006 Laredo 25RK Opinions

If you buy it go STRAIGHT to your favorite tire store and have LTs put on it.
