RE: Jayco Seismic Wave or Keystone Fusion Chrome?

I've owned Keystone, Jayco, and Grand Design. All had good points, and some other areas I wished were different. That being said, I will shop Toyhaulers in the offseason this year. Jayco currently has the floorplan I like, along with KZ. If Grand Design builds it ( I am told they might) I'm buying it. Grand Design is top shelf, they are doing things right in my opinion.

RE: Acceptable movement of Sidewinder at hitch?

Can the wedge be made too tight to the hitch causing hitching difficulty? Or is this not a concern by just tapping as far forward as possible? Thx I had the same problem with the Sidewinder I had. It would move as you described in the hitch funnel. The movement is really noticed on slow winding roads. I adjusted it several times, never could get the slack to fully stop and still be able to hitch with ease. If you back up as far in the hitch as you can then set the trucks brake, you can tap the wedge up tight. When you pull back forward your hitch will have some slack from the front of the funnel to the jaw around the pin, no way out of it. I used a Reese Signature Series Hitch, and a custom wedge for it, still had a little slack. The Sidewinder works as it is intended to, but I never got comfortable with that little movement at the hitch area.

RE: Slider hitch compatibility with Ford 5th wheel prep option.

I sold a brand new Reese Signature Series slider hitch for that application. You can use a Signature Series with the Ford puck kit, cheaper than the Elite Series.

RE: No Tire or TMPS at 70 MPH – Disaster Avoided

My buddie blew a tire on his fiver about a month ago on I26, he never knew he had a problem. He is a very experienced driver and pays close attention when towing, his 3500 dually didn't even flinch after the tire blew. Thanks to him I now have a new Tire Minder TPMS he got us both. You could blow a tire easy and never know it happened, these diesel trucks will drag them down to the hub same as rolling on a tire.

RE: Where do you carry/store large cooler?

I used a big cooler for years, always set it inside the camper at the door. We now use a Yeti Tundra 65, and set it in the basement. My Yeti would fit in front of my hitch until I put my bed cover (Retrax Pro) on, it lacks 2" to fit behind the hitch and close the tailgate.

RE: How do you wax the front cap of your Fifth Wheel?

Wash Wax All with their mop tool, and extending handle works great. Their site

RE: Washing a fifth wheel

We will be picking up our new fifth wheel in about 2 weeks and then hitting the road for another 2 to 3 weeks. Just wondering what and how to wash our new trailer? I've been looking at a foam gun that attaches to a power washer, looks like a pretty good system, or maybe just the old fashion 2 bucket system, just wondering what everyone uses. I have one, they are called a foam cannon or foam lance. I bought mine from Hotsy, I have a stationary unit of theirs. You can buy them online from Chemical Guys on Amazon. They do not spray at high pressure, no danger in destroying graphics or sealant with them. I love mine,,really produces thick foam on the surface. They will make any soap foam, you don't need special soap for them.

RE: B&W Companion slider stuck installing

I had that problem once when I first bought mine. This is what I done to fix it forever. They are binding up when the post goes into your socket, the powder coat is just to thick to allow it to drop in. I sanded the hitch post that goes intro the socket with a DA and some 600 paper. After sanding off the powder coat, spray the post with slip plate (graphite spray paint) it will drop in easy and allow you to remove it as well.

RE: Unexlpained broken window

Tempered glass will break without impact blow, we have documents in our shop providing information on this. It is rare, but tempered will bust spontaneously. In the commercial glazing industry we contribute most of this to Nickel Sulfide In the glass.

RE: Grand Design 317RST

We love our 337, I would have looked at the 317 if it had been out when we bought ours. Grand Design does a good job after the sale. I will look at them when its time to buy another one.

RE: Aluminium 5er hitch?

I think that is a great idea, and a very nice hitch. Andersen is making a real name for themselves in the towing industry, I am beginning to get very interested in them.

RE: Moved From a Bunkhouse to a Rear Living - Thoughts

We love our floorplan, if I was looking to change it would be to a Toyhauler. I had bunkhouses before (nothing wrong with them), I just love my couch and entertainment center in this 337. My kids are the reason we bought what we have now, they like the big living room.

RE: Should we be considering other brands/models?

You owe it to yourself to look at other brands. We looked at Columbus, Crusader, and Jayco. In the end we decided on the Reflection, I have no remorse. I will buy another Grand Design when it's time to shop again in about 5 years.

RE: Grand Design Reflection 303

I replaced my Westlake tires before I made a trip. Who knows, those Westlakes might be OK. I have always replaced OEM tires on everything I own, not a big deal.

RE: RAM Dually Tires-New Tires

I have always run stock width on my dual wheel trucks for the reason you mentioned.

RE: Tires

I just put a set of NITTO EXO Grapplers on my 2500HD. I pulled the Hankook ATM's off and when my 3500HD gets here I will take the Michelin AT2's off that and will be traded back on the NITTO's I have on now. The ATMs will end up back on my 2500HD when it is traded in. Interestingly I made this deal about a month ago and did the deal with my tire guy on my take off Michelins. He now has a whole room full of take off Michelins which have come off of new or near new HD's. It appears no one is staying with the Michelin AT2, they are now only giving $100 per tire trade for the Michelins. I gave $300 plus my new take offs for the NITTO's. Maybe it is just this area, but no one is digging that AT2. The Hankook ATM is an excellent tire in my experience, decent traction and I was getting great wear out of the tires. I just needed something a little more aggressive. The NITTO EXO's have been excellent in snow and ice and mud so far. Hopefully they wear well, but the traction is certainly there. My tire size is 275/70/18. I don't think it's just your area, my dad is the only person I know who likes the AT2. I am looking very hard at the Terra Grappler G2 for my next set. I have been a Michelin customer for over 20 years, they don't have OEM sizes for my truck (MS2). maybe time for a change.

RE: Tires

I have a good friend who ran the Terra Grappler on his 2500, he said they got loud after he put some miles on them. I like the new Terra Grappler G2, they look very impressive.

RE: Weight Police is in trouble now

The cost of the dolly must be very high, looks like it's well built. I bet it would handle good, I think it's a great idea.
