RE: Proof that wind is the big factor in MPG.

When I drove a big rig professionally for 20 years and had some wise a$$ try to draft me I would give them a good demo of the "Tennessee Waltz". Usually got rid of them, but if not, I would them give them a quick pull & release of the trolley valve. It's amazing what the immediate smoke and smell of burning rubber will do! :E :W

RE: Percent of Pin Weight on Each Axle

Mine is 1/64" ahead of the rear axle. No difference in front axle. :R

RE: Double towing

I would look into something like this platform with swivel wheels on it. I don't think this is considered a trailer but a platform attachment to the end of your trailer... This would be for your motorcycle or golf cart... http://i12.servimg.com/u/f12/14/42/82/10/traile10.jpg height=300 Not claiming that this is legal everywhere, but if I was interested in carrying anything that would fit this and not be over the its weight limits this is what I would use. I would be sure to have a heavy duty hitch system professionally installed on my fiver.

RE: Dining table and chairs

You must have some REALLY WIDE chairs! All 4 of our chairs sit in place at our table with about 4" of slide out floor left over.

RE: Residential refrigerator

Was it working when you did your PDI ?

RE: New TV to me, and new 2015 FW

For the PDI, assume you are doing a pre-deployment acceptance inspection and that there will be no parts or depot support available after you deploy. Honestly you will get great support for "issues" before you sign the paper and pay them. With 99% of the dealers, after that you go to the back of the que and it could be weeks or months before the issue is fixed. For the current rig (Sumner RV, right up the road from you) we got there at 8AM and spent about 30 minutes with the RV-Tech. Then we spent 3+ hours looking at -everything-, even found a couple things the Tech signed he looked at, but obviously hadn't. Check the spare. Run the slides out with power and by hand. Find the location of every fuse (including the extra hidden ones for landing gear and slides) Run every appliance: run the heat, the A/C, the refer, the water-heater, water-pump, everything. Never -ever- assume the dealer will "fix it later", get it fixed before you sign. EXCELLENT advice! DO NOT allow the dealer or anyone else present to rush you. Take your time and look at EVERYTHING.

RE: black tank valve handle in or out means valve closed

His dealer couldn't answer the question? Not very encouraging. Tell your buddy to pour some RV antifreeze into the black tank. He will get his answer. If some antifreeze runs out, no harm. He sure picked the wrong dealer ! :E

RE: Dealer wants to buy out my lease?

ANY time ANY salesperson contacts you it is for THEIR benefit not YOURS ! Whose hand is that in your wallet pocket? :E

RE: Used 5th wheel values

WHAT does the United States Department of Agriculture have to do with RV pricing? :h I read once when looking up RV values on NADA to not do add-ons for the unit but go with base values given. Works out about right on my fiver.

RE: Reese or Curt

Went from a Reese to a B&W Companion and couldn't be happier. Same here. Never had a Curt...but LOVE my B & W. No popping, moaning or groaning from the back of the truck cab now.

RE: How much $$$ would you ask

The "build date" on the tires would be more important to me.

RE: Question about my Hydraulic Resevoir

I would retract the 4 rear levelers and then fill the reservoir to the line. "A few inches" is not very descriptive. Is it 3 or is it 9. Could make a big difference in this case.

RE: Andersen Fifth Wheel Hitch Conversion

Maybe Andersen needs to alter the handle where it can be locked. Shouldn't be that difficult. I believe even I could figure out a way if I had one of the current style. I am very happy with my current B & W but would certainly consider the Andersen in the future if I needed a hitch.

RE: Bicycles-recommendations?

Wife and I both have Townies as well as 6 other friends. All have been flawless for several years and very comfortable. Yes we do ride a lot. Same here. Don't waste your time/money on Walmart (cheap) bikes!

RE: What tire pressure gauge do you use?

If your gage is off a couple of psi will that make your tires explode?! :h

RE: Hanging Clothes Space

Any ideas for extra hanging clothes space? We have a closet and another space in 2nd "bedroom, but will need more while full timing as we both work and clothes are necessary. Thanks!! We are both retired and clothes are necessary for us too! :W :E
