RE: Anybody replace the toilet

Six months ago I replaced the piece of junk Thetford that came from the Montana factory with a Dometic 320. We got the tallest version with the sprayer installed. This model has an elongated bowl too. Very happy with it and it was a VERY easy install (about 30 minutes including adding shut-off valve). Purchased from PPL for $189 and free shipping.

RE: Why cant we make up our minds (new camper)!!!!!

Decisions, decisions. It's all about decisions. Don't worry, your wife will decide what you like. :) Repeat after me....."Yes Dear. What ever you want Dear"! :W

RE: Need Some Advice

GAS CARD!!, GAS CARD!!, GAS CARD!! I would give a WalMart gas card. You get a discount with their card and they are already the lowest price and WalMarts are everywhere. AGREE!!! AGREE!!! AGREE!!!

RE: Keeping the candle burning in the Window

Of course I have no knowledge about the quality of this unit but I do know when I like the looks of one. This is NOT it!

RE: K-Z Escalade

I was shopping in 2007 and looked at an Escalade (new one) and was really turned off by the shoddy workmanship at the price of $100,000 at that time! Plumbing to washer/dryer closet was just hanging like wet noodles.

RE: Suburban Water Heater AC switch at the water heater

Agree with aruba5er. Me too!

RE: 50 amp plug

Have not used the adaptor you mention...have not experienced any problems with the standard plug. Same here. the 90 degree hook-up does look neater to me but I don't see it really serving a purpose. We are full timers for going on 6 years and never a problem.

RE: What's a fair price for this dometic fridge?

Even if I needed a new reefer I wouldn't buy at any price. I would do the same as you plan to do and install a residential unit.

RE: Backing into A Blind Spot

Always avoid "cranking it tight" as this puts too much stress on the trailers axles!

RE: My first rear kitchen - drawer and cabinet latches?

I have a new to me Arctic Fox 27-5L and it's my first rear kitchen model. The previous owner installed some eye bolts top and bottom of the drawer bay and stretched a bungee across them. I would bet my lunch money that the previous owner also wears a belt AND suspenders at the same time! We have full timed in our 2012 Montana 3585SA that is a rear kitchen and have NEVER had a drawer or cabinet come open and have NEVER had anything broken. We love our rear kitchen. Lots of counter space and cabinets.

RE: Can CCC be increased by making alterations to a Cameo 5er?

I believe the info on the yellow sticker takes in to account all the optional equipment that was installed - such as that generator and the #2 AC un it. This is true IF the options were installed at the factory. Some options are added after leaving the factory where the "yellow sticker" is affixed.

RE: Tires for TV

I got stuck on wet grass with the transforce.....several times actually. I traded up to yokohama geolanders ats, $800 installed, out the door, plus a $60 mail in rebate so $740. They are 10 ply, 3125 lbs rated. How many times have you been stuck on wet grass with the Yokohama tires? It can happen with ANY tire! I ran Firestone Transforce on my previous 2007 Ram 2500 with GREAT results. Three months ago put Cooper Discoverer HT3 on current F350 and am very pleased so far. Am towing 38' Montana scaling @14,500.

RE: Using smart phone as a hot spot

Also check this. On our one year old Verizon Samsung phones, they works great as hot spots, BUT while using them as a hot spot, you can't make a call on it. Say, that you're using your laptop with a phone aas a hot spot looking at RV camp grounds and you want to call one. On our phones you can't do it unless you shut down the hot spot or use a second phone to make the call. Bill I use my almost 2 year old Galaxy S5 as a hot spot and can make/receive calls/texts while online. Works much better than the separate Verizon hot spot I previously had and saved me $20 per month.

RE: air bag suspension weight increase

A few people I know recommend adding air bags to my rear suspension, which according to Firestone increase my tow capacity an additional 5000lbs. I'll bet my last dollar that no one from Firestone said that their air bags will increase your towing capacity! Actually Firestone and other air bag manufacturers will tell you that their air bags DO NOT INCREASE TOWING CAPACITY that they will level your rig and improve the ride. Having said that, I installed Air Lift bags with on-board air on my 2012 F-350 SRW and love them for the better ride. My truck did not need leveling as my pin weight is only 2500 lbs.

RE: Which install first: 5th-wheel hitch or air bags?

Great replies fellas. Thanks for the feedback. Now you've got me thinking of the Patriot too.... I've got no experience with other 5th wheel hitches, but I can say that I'm extremely happy with my Patriot 18K. I have experience with both. Ditch the Reese idea and go with the B & W! The Patriot should be fine for your application. I love my Patriot.....smooth and quiet unlike the "snap, crackle & pop" Reese I had.

RE: Pull tests

Nope. Not me. But I will stick my head back there and take a good look at everything. Same here. Looks good and the pin is in place. I don't like the unusual stress placed on the landing gear. If you have the fiver low enough in the front when you back under it there will not be any stress on the landing gear because it will be slightly off the ground after backing under it. One of the first things I learned when I started driving for a living.

RE: Pull tests

I retired as a professional trucker with over 3.5 millions miles logged. I ALWAYS did a pull test when coupling then and will continue to do so now. Never dropped a trailer!

RE: Montana Axle Change - Easy or Not?

As BB said axles not carrying all of that, & yes they should be easy to change if you desire. I agree but why waste the time and money? If you REALLY want to spend some money on something worthwhile do a disk brake conversion.

RE: Direct TV

Dish Network just came out to the state park and upgraded me to a new Hopper3 DVR receiver and Hybrid LNB at no cost. Can now record 16 programs at one time but not likely to do so. Nothing was ever said about being in RV.

RE: Rear Kitchen VS Rear Living Room

We are full timers and have had both. The RK is BY FAR our favorite! We appreciate the large kitchen with lots of counter and cabinet space. The RK makes the living area large also with opposing slide outs with many windows. I have heard that some people complain that things "fall out of cabinets" while traveling but we have never had a problem like that.
