RE: To slide or not

You wont need the sliding hitch most of the time at all. I did get into a tough situation one morning when leaving a campground. We had to leave early on a Sunday morning of a very busy holiday weekend. I drove my truck up the road to the turn loop, it was very crowded and trucks were parked all around the edges of the turn. I drove back to my site and moved my hitch back before hooking up, no way I could have made that turn without asking someone to move. I will keep my sliding hitch as long as I own a SB truck.

RE: B&W companion slide won't slide

I called them about the same issue, that is to much on the draw down bolt. One of their guys told me to use 60 Ftlbs on that bolt.

RE: Fort Wilderness Campground

Our last trip to Disney we stayed at Fort Wilderness, great campground. The weather ruined our trip, but Fort Wilderness is a very nice place.

RE: Short bed with companion slider

Sounds to me like the taper on the back of your pin box is hitting your tailgate. If that is the case, the same problem will be there when you turn sharp at your bed sides. Take your tailgate off, then slide the hitch back, check the inside clearance of your pin box and truck bed when you turn.

RE: Bunkhouse model 5th Wheels

Grand Design has some very nice bunk models, check them out.

RE: short bed - sliding hitch vs sidewinder?

I had a Sidewinder for a few years, never noticed any bad pulling habits from it. About the same as a conventional hitch and pin box.

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: Pin lube?

I spray my pin with slip plate

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.
