RE: Letting my truck sit for 6 months over winter

If you install a trickle charger with a 2 battery system, does it matter which battery you hook it to ?

RE: Winter Storage of RV

I have a Block building with insulated roof (40 x 52) 12' walls. I store my gooseneck trailer with some equipment, my dad stores his travel trailer in this building as well. Inside never gets below freezing in this building with no heat. My pole barn fifth wheel storage building (30 x 80 with 16' walls) has an insulated roof with translucent panels every 6'. This building is not insulated except where no skylites are installed. This building will get to the same temp as the outside, I can't remember that old block building feeling that much warmer when we ran our shop out of it though, seemed cold then. I would put the anti freeze in your camper to be safe either way.

RE: Weathertech floormats

I have Weathertech in my 15 Silverado, they don't fit exact IMO. I had Husky in the past, they were spot on.

RE: New tires for the 5er installed

All reports have been good on the Sailun tires, if this continues I will definitely look at them next time.

RE: Buy a 2016 or 2017 Duramax??

990 Ft lb of torque?? My God these are pick ups not MD trucks My Ram has 900# of torque and I love it. I'm sure we will see 1,000# of torque soon, likely Ford first. Hopefully GM does a big increase. For me a huge huge power difference when loaded and towing between my 2011 with ''only'' 650# and my new 2016 with 900#. "With only 650# of torque, that is funny when you read it. Years ago who would have thought these trucks would be such brutes

RE: New tires for trucks 1st Birthday

I have been looking very close at Nitto Terra Grappler G2. I would like to hear a report on them from someone. I have a set - 285/75/17 - E rated and very smooth running - happy so far That is good to hear. I see a lot trucks running them, must be something to it.

RE: Bak lip cover with fifth wheel

How close does the back of your pin box get to the rail alexleblanc when you turn sharply? I've got 4" from the back of the pin box mount to the backflip rail. No issues at all. Looks like most of the other FW's out there in the "1500 towable"** category from other competitive manufacturers are all quite similar in front cap dimensions so I'd imagine you'd see similar results. ** Sidebar - is it me or are the 1500 towable FW's the ideal weight and size for current 3/4 ton trucks? Wouldn't want to tow mine with a 1500! That sounds like a good setup you have. Its not just you, IMO all Fifth Wheels that advertise 1/2 Ton Towable are perfect match for 3/4 ton trucks.

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
