RE: Are RVs delivered winterized in cold environments?

We picked up our new fifth wheel the first week of July, it was winterized from the factory. While doing the papers, they asked me IF I wanted it winterized again. I sais no, It will be in the Florida Keys in 1 week ! :B

RE: Disc Brakes

I had a pad that looked like that.. I would pull into the CG and hear very minor break squeal, when looking, I had 1 wheel covered in brake dust and it was measuring about 50 degrees hotter while on the road.. .. I needed a caliper spacer installed to allow the outer pad to release just a hair... problem solved.....

RE: Fiver Pin Separated From Hitch on Interstate

I've never disassembled my B&W hitch, so I cannot categorically state that the jaws cannot open when closed and pinned. The only people who can state that are the ones who have actually taken a hitch apart and examined all components. Pivot pins can wear and break, latches can fail, but there should be evidence of what happened. All we can do is hope the OP comes back with an explanation. Don't know if he will fo that.... its been since the first page that he responded....

RE: Fiver Pin Separated From Hitch on Interstate

That's a good thought, AZ, but it was hitched with the plate of the fiver solidly against the plate of the hitch. When the legs were retracted, it was hitched plate to plate. We had driven nearly two hundred miles the first night, spent the night at a rest area, and had been on the road for about an hour before the separation occurred. It seems that an unsecure hitch would have shown up much earlier, certainly within the first hour on the road. Did you happen to DOUBLE check the handle in the am after your nights stay ? I have heard of troublesome kids pulling the handles that's why some here lock them.... Anyway, glad your all ok, how the the trailer fair?

RE: Genset Requirements

I have been using the twin Honda's for years with my 50amp trailer with no issues. I am able to run 1 of my 15k ac's and everything else in the trailer with the exception of heating devices... if we need the microwave, we turn off the ac... I purchased a Bergs 5 gallon extended run fuel tank to help and run longer, i would get about 16 hours off the 5 gallons at 3/4 power... Now I just hit the switch on my onboard Onan 6.5 !

RE: A bit of a 911 here

Statesville that's it! No accident, under construction and backed up for miles each direction. Even at 300 in the afternoon Miserable ride but was too afraid to get off the highway lol It's a good thing you moved from Cabala's when you did.. last night was the coldest night since last year they said... Although not as windy, so that probably equaled out.. glad your there and safe.. Love that area, was in Stanley NC last week at our office there . .

RE: Ford 26 gallon tank

My dealer told me that it depends on the issue... IF the warranty issue/problem is directly related to the installation of the aftermarket piece, it would be void, or would fall on the supplier of that product. BUT, the dealer would have to prove that is was DIRECTLY related to that install.. In my case, If my tank failed, IF Ford would not stand by , Titan WOULD... I had several conversations with the owner of Titan during my buying process... Great guy ( forget his name ?? possibly Jim) , he actually also owns a few car dealers.. He gets in EARLY models and verifies the fit before they hit the market..

RE: A bit of a 911 here

Thanks Ken I'm actually headed outside of Charlotte NC if I cut down 61 south to 222/272/897 it looks like I'll reconnect to 95. Straight shot south, but I'm not familiar with the roads. Since you are already that far west I would suggest that you stay FAR AWAY from 95 . . . hook up with 81 to 77 into Charlotte... I live just North of Philly and avoid 95 at all cost.. in fact I have already gone 2 hrs west to get to 81 when going to our office in Charlotte . . The tough part will be the winds.. Since your new to the towing thing, I would hunker down for the day...

RE: Ford 26 gallon tank

Does anyone know if replacing your fuel tank voids your warranty ? I have a new 2016 F-350 crew cab short bed with the 26 gal tank and would install a Titan tank if it didn't void my warranty. Not exactly an a direct answer, but when i purchased my "15" when it came in I had them take it to the shop around the corner to have them add some stuff.... 1 of those items was a Titan 51 gallon diesel tank. They paid for everything to be done, cant imagine that they would have done that if it would have voided the warranty.. I have know the guys at both the shop and the dealership for many-many years....

RE: What are you using to tow a 10k TT ??

OP here.... I appreciate all responses, he is still looking and wants to stay with a diesel... He wanted to go look at a 6.0 today with 125k, i talked him out of it... the search continues. How much does he want to spend? I know where he can buy a loaded 2016 F350 diesel Platinum with 14,000 miles on it for $50k. He just signed the papers on a 2016 F-250 with the 6.2.. it has 12K on it, and is certified,which means he has a warranty that will last till April of 2020 or 48k and a drivetrain warranty of 7 year/100K... paid 32K

RE: Oh Boo Hoo

You have my sympathy. ;) I too winterized my camper last week. I did use it last night though. It sets in a shed on my property. My new girlfriend came over to spend the night. A friend that has no place to stay showed up and slept on the couch. She would not spend the night with me with him on the couch so we used the camper instead. I need to get a camper with a bigger, more stable, bed now that I have a girlfriend. :p T.M.I !!! :B

RE: Honda 2000 Aux Tank

I have an extended tank with my two Hondas. There is no hose down into the extended tank; it is not needed. The Hondas pull from the extended tank then from their own tank. The extended tank will come with special caps that connect everything. I've never had any problem and running an AC, the extended tank with the two Hondas will run about 10 hours easy. X2 . . I have the Bergs dual genny system and LOVED it..... But now I have the onboard Onan 6.5 and do not need my extended run kit anymore... I used to keep the vent closed on the extended tank for a few minutes after starting the gennies to allow them to create suction... then I would open the vent and all is fine

RE: Should fresh water tank be patched or replaced?

I will say that IF you go into this with that attitude , you will get some resistance... You are already looking for a "big fight" in your words.. I have heard nothing but exceptional customer service from GD , and have learned over the years that the folks who START OFF with a bad attitude , most likely end with it also.. RELAX , give them the chance to make it right. And possibly without the big fight you are referring to.... Life's too short
