RE: Will Single A/C cut it?

You can always add the second and run a dedicated outlet to the pole.. There have been many on here that have done that ,I believe that they ran the wire to a convenient location and placed a box there. This allowed them to run a separate cord from the pole to the 2nd ac feed .

RE: shower cleaning

We use the basic shower cleaner after each camping trip.. And usually twice a year I use wax ( automotive ) on the walls ( NOT ON THE BASE ) ... that cleans all the water spots off and usually helps with keeping it clean...

RE: high low hitch [drop down hitch]

is there a high low hitch or drop down hitch that works with weight distribution system to tow trailers? Most high low hitch i see and searched online aren't for towing trailers. Look on one of the other posts you have going on the same subject... I posted a link to that same exact thing on one of them..........

RE: Is this bad?

Unless you planning on dragging that off road , I would not worry about ground clearance... Go with a drop down ball hitch... I had one on my very first 19' trailer and lifted 82 F-350... One like this - drop down hitch and 1 of these - Adjustable head

RE: Bad Customer Service

I am ok with a salesperson showing or not as long as they are attentive when you ask for help or ask to be left alone. What i dont like is where we went that had a desk at the entrance that didnt want me going past without them demanding a salesperson be there. You couldnt even walkminto the store portion without going past this person. A few weeks back we stopped in McGeorges RV in Ashland to look around.. The lot is fenced in ,you must go in front doors and be greeted by desk... at that point they take you on a golf cart , when I asked to walk , they said no,, insurance regulations forbid that due to the cart traffic? :h I could not breath without the guy asking what I said.. I much rather walk ALONE.. IF and WHEN I am ready.. I will seek out someone..

RE: Raising a 5th wheel without a jack

You will get the sky is falling comments soon on the TrailerAid. They will say you are putting too much strain on the tire on the TrailerAid or the springs. I always say you never have driven over a curb? It is a great tool for maintenance or road side repair as seen in this pic. That was over two years ago and the tire and springs are just fine. http://i.imgur.com/LsUD5Ttl.jpg I wish I could say that I saw this BEFORE I gave away mine ? Had one , got the IS installed , tried it , gave it to my B-I-L.. :S I may have to go and reclaim it !!

RE: Bad Customer Service

Personally that is the way we like it! No salesman bothering me makes it much easier for me to look beyond the glitter to see how it really is built. If I want to buy Ill go find someone to take my money. That's us also... If I have a question , I wont ask the sale person ,half the time We know more than them anyway.. when I am ready..... I am ready... and they will know it

RE: New G 114's

RE: New travel trailer for my daughter..

I 3rd the idea of a toy hauler... And we have also been shopping around hoping something would JUMP out at us in the fifth wheel world.. Your daughter is in for a rude awakening... dark is in . . .

RE: Well, that went as expected

I have always told newbie fifth wheel owners to take a couple trash cans to an empty school lot or any type of empty parking lot and PRACTICE... Nobody around... Nothing to back into . . Well , if you place the cans far enough away from everything ! A set of walkie talkies or cell phones prevents the whole campground from hearing DW yelling at you while your hitting or getting close to something. :)

RE: Wife had 3 rd pacemaker yesterday

Bill - - Mine is a Medtronics.... I did not hear about being too close to the engine , but They DID tell me to stay 3' away from the battery.. Also , no more cell phone in the breast pocket if that's where you put yours... I had to give my welder to my Brother-in law... A welder is a big no-no They tell you to stay 24" from a working microwave.. I don't ..?? I was told no more electrical work ( did not do any anyway) if you receive a shock , it would-could short circuit your pacer.. Watch your Ipad case if it has the magnetic clamp... If your not paying attention and surfing the web in bed , a lot of times that clasp is on you chest at your pacer... also a big no-no... Google the topic , you will find a ton of information... I have had mine since November 27th 2012.. my new Birthday ! :B

RE: New G 114's

OK will bite the bul lit!!! Why not keep the 614 spare as you will hopefully never need it and if so only for a short as possible mileage. See it all the time with the 50/50 spare on auto. Please don't be a "B" just asking for information and save a few $$$.00 Forgive me , but I don't understand your response ? What does it mean to be a "B" ?? and I was not asking a question... IN MY eyes , it would have cost me Roughly $1400.00 ($350.00ea) to replace the 4 G-614's... at the end of the day , for $300.00 MORE I now have 5 of the 17.5 G114's.. As far as the spare goes... Again.. for a grand total of $300.00 I now not only have a piece of mind , I also do not have to worry about finding a replacement spare on the road on a Saturday or Sunday while on vacation in an area that I am not familiar with...

New G 114's

After doing much reading on the forums about tires.. there has been a lot of discussion lately about the upgrade to 17.5... I sat in the background and watched... Put a few feelers out and made the swap.. I found a guy to buy my 2012 date code G-614's and the wheels for $1,500.00.... I called Mike at Trailer Tire and Wheels and just put on my new kicks... I was not sure I wanted to spend the bucks , but after seeing the Shoulder step on my tires now ( see other thread called A Tire issue??) I figured I would be buying new to get a piece of mind.. $ 3,200.00 new G-114's X 5 $ 1,500.00 old G-614 tires and wheels ------------------- $ $1,700.00 for the swap . . NO BRAINER

RE: EZ PASS for out of state visitor?

I believe that you can buy a transponder at any toll booth office... That's just a guess

RE: A long Winter

Aaaaahhhhh! All is good. After the bag took a different flight from us again we were reunited, made our shuttle , picked up our truck, off to get the trailer from winter hibernation & on the road headed for a CG some 30 hours after walking out of our house door. 2 days of victualling &now we sit in Martinak SP, MD. with only 3 others in the CG. Off to a boatyard Monday for a few days of refit & upgrades before the travel really begins. Travel safe..... Enjoy.... Keep us updated!!
