RE: Mosquitoes, How do they get in MH?

Create some positive pressure in your coach by putting the fan settings on your a/c units on manual high. This will help with the small places where they might be coming in.

RE: Bent awning roller

Check with your insurance carrier. Happened to me a couple of years ago. Friends came to visit while I was setting up after arriving. I had just rolled out the awning but had not yet adjusted the angle for water run off. Flash flood thunderstorm came along and I heard the loud pop as the support arm gave way. I called my agent just in case I had coverage for being asleep at the wheel. He said yes and that it happens quite often. The insurance company replaced the entire awning, support arms and all. Cost me my $250 deductible.

RE: Leveling my fifth wheel

Terminology so that we are all on the same page. Front landing gear raises and lowers the pin box to hitch and unhitch and to later level front to back. These jacks can be "pinned". Stabilizer jacks are usually hand cranked down to stabilize unit after it is level and are not "pinned" Hydraulic landing gear is not pinned. Electric landing gear is usually "pinned".

Next time you do your homework, you might have the wife check it for you. I would think you would have known that tidbit about Thor buying DVR. I think I would give you a C- at best for missing that in your research. By the way, I have owned two HR products, Alumalite and Presidential fifth wheels and both were good units. Now own at MS and believe me as an owner of both brands, you are talking apples and oranges in comparison. The MS definitely is head and shoulders above the last Presidential I owned.

RE: love bug protection

It's not the bugs, it's the bug juice that causes the problem. Screen will clog and engine will heat up some as mentioned in the earlier post. As a long time FL resident (60 yr), the best solution I have found so far is a good coat or two of wax. Wash off bug juice daily and you should be OK. And yes, I have tried the "dryer sheets", the "Pam" and a dozen other remedies but other problems are created when using some of the remedies. Keep the front end waxed and rinsed daily would be my advice.

RE: Disney via I-75

I-95 to "BeachLine" (528) just south of Titusville and then the 417 toll will take you to Disney. There is a toll and I think would be around $8-10 with a toad. Traffic is minimal compared to I-4 trip and time from I-95 to Disney is about an hour.

RE: Tow Vehicle Preferences

My experience over the years towing three different size fifth wheels with 3 ford trucks has been as follows: 32' or less, ok with 3.73 rear end ration 32' - 35' - go for a 4.10 ratio 35' - 38 - shoot for a 4:30 ratio 38' and over- buy a class 8 and single it out. Lots of variables (I know) especially weights as the higher end fifth wheels tend to weigh more. I presently have an F450 with a 4:30 ratio (6.0 diesel) and average around 10.4 on flat land here in Fl. at 63 mph. I am towing a 35' HR. I towed the same 35' HR with an F350 w/4.10 ratio and it towed fine. However, I felt on the edge many times with the brakes, etc on the f350 DRW. With the f450, never feel uncomfortable.
