RE: iPad air2 to TV

Yes, you just need a Apple Lightning Digital AV adapter. It is roughly $50. Shirley I have one , I can watch all my movies that are on my iPad on the TV... I also downloaded the slingbox app to go along with my actual Slingbox. That allows me to watch my cable from home on my iPad - onto any tv I plug into...

RE: Any suggestions for a stop between Philly & Charleston, SC?

We're right in between Philly & Wilmington DE. I'm thinking we'll be going down along the coast and coming back through Charolette & then Luray. My current plan was to stop around Richmond, but that didn't sound too fun. I'm either going to do the trip in 2 or 3 days and haven't made that call yet. I'm thinking we'll do the CBBT and will look into Virginia Beach, Wilmington and the Outer Banks. Thanks for all the tips! If you decide to stop near Richmond , you can always stop at mile marker 98 at Kings Dominion Campground.. They offer a free shuttle to Kings Dominion Amusement Park.. We usually stay there a time of 2 a year.. The campground just had a complete makeover 2 years ago , and is pretty nice... It's a good way to kill a day

RE: Excessive white exhaust while driving F450 diesel

Mine hit a point where it was going into regen about every 50 miles for 20 miles at a time. Ford also told me it was because my longest drive when not towing ( daily driver) was 10 miles at a time.. It would not get a good cook off to clean , so it clogged...

RE: Ten Year Anniversary Trip

The info you have is a bit off.... here is the published DRY weights of the 2014 36RE (which is what you are looking to rent) - Hitch Weight 2448 lbs Gross Weight 16000 lbs Dry Weight 13554 lbs Cargo Weight 2446 lbs I would do some weighing of my truck to see if its up to the task before taking such a big trip..

RE: Excessive white exhaust while driving F450 diesel

I had an 09 with the 6.4... that was the only issue I had... It would be like the old time bug machine rolling down the road... Your DPF filter is either clogging , or clogged.. there is a company up in CT that specializes in BAKING those to be new , as apposed to buying new with a cost od $3000.00.. or close.

RE: Check Your Roof Caulking Folks!!

For the record - I am only answering because it does in fact look like a bad job in the pic... I took the pic originally to show the clean (no snow) roof ,with 30" around me.. #1- a lot of what you see is snow around the seam... The tape is white , but I figured that who the heck will see up there to question white verses another color. #2 - I agree that the pic makes it appear not as neat , but I can assure you it looks fine close up with no snow. #3- more importantly , it does the job... and in my eyes , easier to use than caulk.

RE: Cost to install generator?

My genny prep was $500.00 and it included - The sealed generator box... All the wiring to the panel box inside along with switches and meters inside... all wiring to transfer switch along with the transfer switch.. they say I would just have to lift the genny in place , tie in the LP...plug in the wires ( plug and play ?) and do the exhaust... Sounds easy ??

RE: Ten Year Anniversary Trip

Where are you renting a 36' Redwood ? I can say that since your NOT taking highways and staying on small , windy , hilly roads . NOT TO DO IT.. Your 3/4 ton will not be able to stop that rig if needed in a hurry... I upgraded my trailer brakes to Discs , and what a difference ! Not to mention you will be over on all your numbers for that 3/4 ton SRW... I pull a Redwood with a new generation ( 2015 ) F-350 SRW and at my capacity on all numbers... but still under by a small margin.. I would never do it with a 250/2500

RE: Electric Drum vs Hydraulic Disc Brakes

I was very happy !! we had the opportunity to upgrade to a Redwood this year , so we did.. It took us many-many months to find something of equal or better quality as the KZ we had. The folks at the factory in Indiana were great to deal with also.. If your interested in shopping , there is another great dealer in Pottstown PA called Family Camping Outlet.. It is another family owned facility.. When in Indiana taking a tour of the facility , they told me that the folks in Pottstown are their number 1 liked dealer in the states... They sure treated me like the enemy. Took the trailer back to them reporting a bent axle, they made an a$$ of me saying there is nothing wrong with it. You could see if was bent from long distance. Sent the axle to KZ and they sent it to AlKo, report was that it was indeed bent (duh) but they will not replace it. I wouldn't buy a wheelbarrow from people like this. Yes, I was at the factory as well and heard how great the dealer is, and then I presented them with real facts. I was only going off what I heard.... I met the owners ( Bill SR. & Bill jr ) while dealing , and decided to go with Kevin Stone... Sorry to hear you had an issue with them.

RE: Check Your Roof Caulking Folks!!

On my last fiver I covered the seams for the front and rear caps with Eternabond.. 6 years and it looked brand new , so when I got my new trailer that's the first thing I did... added a 6" strip on both front and rear.. http://i.imgur.com/LKk4OAQl.jpg Joe

RE: buying used generator online

OP here,, just testing he waters , I will want to add a generator over the next year or so and wanted to start some homework.. I have always purchased stuff like that new , it has always been easier ,but now with the interweb (as Richard Rawlings calls it) , it is so easy to reach out and find good/not so good deals.. Thanks all for your input to this point ! !

RE: Electric Drum vs Hydraulic Disc Brakes

I see your in Jersey... North or South? If your looking hard , check out Stones Family Camping... Down in Berlin , good people... Purchased my 08 KZ fifth wheel from them... We are in South Jersey - Stones is where we are looking, as they are the only one in the area who sells the KZ brand. I love the fact that they are not overly pushy sales people, and seem to be extremely knowledgeable about the brands they sell. Are you happy with the KZ brand?

RE: Any suggestions for a stop between Philly & Charleston, SC?

We're heading down in March and haven't decided on a place to stop on the way down. I'm thinking somewhere to stay 1-2 days in mid-March. On the way back up we're thinking of stopping in Charolette & along the BRP in VA. How far from PA do you want to stop ?? Your in central PA , correct? So I assume your doing 81-77-26 ?? We stayed at Endless caverns in VA... just off 81.. we had a GREAT time , the kids were about the age of yours at the time and there was a ton to do!

RE: Super Bowl Champs

Biggest looser: Cam's agent. Can you imagine all the potential big money endorsements he lost because of his post game behavior? Problem with half time shows now is that there is no contemporary music talent out there right now to draw from....it's all pretty much junk. I agree... who is Cam to get up and walk out of a press conference?? not trying to get the ball back after his fumble late... I do believe that he will be REAL GOOD.. once he grows up.. IF...

RE: Residential Refrigerator

FTG, group 31s are decent sized batterys. Had a pair of gel cell in an earlier boat which worked well as starting, together, & house switched individually. Had 5 group 31 gels arranged in 3 banks for a later boat. Too bad RV dealers don't supply good sized batterys such as the group 31s instead of the low capacity group 24s that usually get put in. When we ordered the fridge upgrade , Redwood automatically adds the dual 31's and the pure sine wave inverter as part of the upgrade...

RE: Electric Drum vs Hydraulic Disc Brakes

I highly doubt a 25' KZ Spree has factory discs.... They don't even offer it on the gold fifth wheel line as an option.....
