RE: Where do your pets ride?

My mini Schnauzer rides on the center console, she likes to watch traffic.

RE: Andersen Hitch

This Guy had his bed broke by the flex in his 18k Companion. I am not crazy about the adaptor part of the Companion, Andersen, or the Bull Dog fifth wheel adaptor hitches...however, there are millions of miles and hundreds of thousands of users with these products. You can even add the Curt X5 adaptor base rails to this bunch. These all distribute some weight to the bed floor. I know they work, I don't think they are unsafe...at all... But the flex may damage some peoples bed to one degree or another...or it may not. I don't hate the fifth wheel rails...if I were installing a fiver hitch...I would probably use the rails. They just seem more secure giving a firm wide base with four anchor points directly on the frame. My dad has the rails and I can't say the get in the way of using the bed. My best friend had rails in his last truck. I helped him load many things in and out of the bed. The rails never seemed to get in the way. What I would probably do is install the fifth wheel rails and get a gooseneck plate for my rails if I ever needed to pull a gooseneck. I understand the desire for a "clean bed" but the reality is that most beds are not "clean" with or without the rails. I know a man who owns a 2012 F250 XL and pulls a fiver.... He has fifth wheel rails...he also has a B&W turnover ball for his horse trailer...I kinda scratch my head on that one...I would do one or the other. $125 gooseneck plate for the rails would have solved the issue. Thanks! Jeremiah The guy in the video stated he installed flat bar in the low part of the bed floor ( he had an older design). B&W provides a part that does just that on all Companion hitches now. With the flats of a bed supporting the weight directly over the bed channels, the Companion is a very strong secure hitch.

RE: Help me choose LT Tires

I like the Michelin MS2 as good as anything we have ever run. I like the looks of a Nitto tire, I just don't know anything about them.

RE: Towing through Eisenhower Tunnel

That sounds like a fun pull, I doubt your combination will have any problems up or down.

RE: B&W Hitch

I had always bought turnover balls for our Gooseneck applications. When I bought my first fifth wheel in 07 I installed a Reese Signature Series non sliding hitch to use with a Sidewinder. I had no major problems with that set-up, and at that time the Companion did not have a slider. When I saw the Companion Slider I had no doubts about what hitch my new truck would get. It's hard to beat a B&W hitch, they operate so smooth and rattle free. My Slider is as solid as the regular Companion, zero noise.

RE: Apple season - almost here!

Prime camping season is just around the corner, I wait all year for Fall. We actually have an Apple Day Parade close to our hometown, great event.

RE: rv window replacement

If the replacement windows have tempered glass like a RV window, you won't save money over an actual RV window. I would not put vinyl replacement windows with annealed glass in a trailer that will be on the road.

RE: New Shoes For "The Silver Fox".

Why not use all Ribs. They are all steel with no fabric belts as opposed to the MS2. You don't need any all season traction as you have no drive wheels or steering axle. B.O. I understood these to be for a dual wheel truck, that's the only reason I mentioned MS2. If these were to go on a camper, no comparison, Ribs all the way.

RE: New Shoes For "The Silver Fox".

That sounds a bit high, I know that's high for my area. I buy LTX MS2 for my dual wheel trucks, they are under $1,600 mounted and balanced. Different areas have different price ranges, maybe your price is in line for your neck of the woods.

RE: B & W Hitch

I've done it and it never opened. I forgot to put the pin in and drove out of the campground and down the road and at the stop sign to get on the main road remembered. No issues. If that hitch is latched, it's latched! I have no desire to see if the arm would eventually swing far enough open to unhitch, but I really don't think it would. Hope I never find out. :) Because the internet is mostly anonymous, I have no problem admitting that I once forgot to put the truck in park before trying to unhitch the trailer... so, there I am, standing on the back tire to reach into the bed of the truck, completely unaware that the truck is actually pulling against the thing a bit as it is trying to roll down a slight slope away from the trailer. Nothing happened when I pulled the pin. That story could have ended bad, glad you didn't get hurt, or tear something up. HOWEVER, I hardly touched the arm before it swung open and all heck broke loose, my footing rolled out from under me and I had to run alongside my truck in a panic to jump in the open driver door. I'm sure the scene was hilarious from a third-party perspective. Don't try that at home, kids.

RE: B & W Hitch

If you own a B&W hitch you better make sure to install the safety pin in the latch before driving off. I guarantee the handle will open without that pin inserted.

RE: Reese Elite Under bed rail mount

That hitch should drop right in the Elite Rails. That will be a very nice setup if you do not pull gooseneck trailers too.

RE: Michelin Tire Rebate Question

The rebate will be after 8-25-14 was the information my dealer told me. I was told $70 on the rebate as well. Wait a couple of weeks to see what happens, unless you need them now.

RE: 5th wheel hitch and truck side rail height

You should have enough adjustment to get your trailer close to level. These new trucks make it very difficult to get a level trailer, and good bed clearance.

RE: New Diesel owner and some questions

I am hoping that the OP added a 0 to that mileage, I hope 14K is what the odometer reads.

RE: Well lets just write 2014 off

GM really hurt themselves selling the 2014 models, with the early release on the 2015 HD trucks. I believe they will move them with some nice discounts.

RE: Sorry GM, I switched to RAM

Good looking Dodge, but I don't think I could have made that switch from the Silverado. Enjoy. His truck looks very good with his toyhauler though. I agree with you about the switch, I have been a GM loyalist my entire life. I never say never about other brands, Rams, and Fords are fine trucks I'm sure. The main thing to remember is if you don't like what you bought you can always get rid of it, their not a family member.

RE: Fueling up at a truck stop

You go inside and prepay then go outside and pump Exactly. Most of the truck stops I have fueled up at are very busy inside at the register.
