RE: slideout beam repair

well I had the time and the garage available to do repair on the beam. The 14 foot beam was rotted out from the upper gutter screws leaking for some time. I have few pics but will take more as I am replacing section of ceiling with thin plywood panel and I replaced entire sidewall with wood paneling. I removed the slider complete and the floor was good however the pantry closet external wall was shot. I also reinforced the roof beams and made braces for more strength. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-x6fhknQn86M/VL1wU4UhsfI/AAAAAAAAEUM/4gc6yvG1owY/s512/20150119_155954.jpg width=400 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-50_eismaLAI/VL1its1YUJI/AAAAAAAAETg/24J_RHkHX-o/s640/20150119_150156.jpg width=400 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-5DnllbtdvHE/VL1iq1YKLpI/AAAAAAAAETU/Maxs2u7bw3M/s640/20150119_150145.jpg width=400 https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-V22fxaJMYoA/VL1QiiNR9xI/AAAAAAAAESQ/b0PUh7sEAD4/s640/20150119_134423.jpg width=400 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-DnoYcrq6yOY/VL1QPg-utkI/AAAAAAAAEXM/2f-lavzIFWc/s512/20150119_134308.jpg width=400 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-LS0W_2zAlyE/VL1QK97-UzI/AAAAAAAAEXE/orr13BOMQdY/s512/20150119_134210.jpg width=400 https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Gz3TY8X1fpU/VL0pN58A0bI/AAAAAAAAEW8/AqCw_rWp3xk/s800/20150119_105634.jpg width=400 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-fozCd24jLH0/VL_RuPynL3I/AAAAAAAAEV4/AQvOlPy87JI/s512/20150121_112002.jpg width=400 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-xlKWY1CA9gA/VL_Qn_dgVaI/AAAAAAAAEX0/HoQcWisjsjA/s512/20150121_111522.jpg width=400 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-v6vdGXnbnXc/VMD8O1qrflI/AAAAAAAAEWM/wU9CeGTe4vk/s640/20150122_083348.jpg width=400 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-NUm5oOWyzgc/VMD8ZpppCwI/AAAAAAAAEWw/rUOcfhkTnMI/s640/20150122_083423.jpg width=400

RE: Bicycle Rack on 5th wheel rear 2'' hitch

You need a heavy bumper mounted to frame and it will work I made my own to carry my generator and other things and after 5 years no problems at all. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-WCQTP4etvN0/TF9DloV8D-I/AAAAAAAAD5c/IXRVFz5E1tw/w640-h480-no/DSC01244.JPG width=400 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-kpn6HOU7Tzg/Tg9HtFHCToI/AAAAAAAADk4/gAFU6TtyyFM/w769-h577-no/genny%2Brack.jpg width=400 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-y0HFQwcO0ew/Tg9HtAbYdeI/AAAAAAAADlI/89828QQy1Pc/w769-h577-no/genny%2Brack2.jpg width=400

slideout beam repair

yep - after years of trouble free rv ing we will be removing my 14 foot superslide to replace the beam above it. I resealed roof twice since i owned it but looks like water got in the gutter screws and did the damage. The last few outings the wall above the slide which is the beam started to move a bit and upon inspecting I can tell the beam is rotten. I own equipment and have access to large building to do repairs. When I start I will take pics. This is on my 95 Fleetwood Wilderness fiver. The rest of rv seams good

RE: Anyone mount a geny to the hitch?

That sounds good but you must consider the size. How big is it? The genny is Champiion 3500/4000 and the cooler with ice and drinks at least 60 pounds https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-y0HFQwcO0ew/Tg9HtAbYdeI/AAAAAAAAB5Q/YeE5ZE2JOoU/w769-h577-no/genny+rack2.jpg width=540

RE: Anyone mount a geny to the hitch?

Yup, if done with right welder,or fab shop this is a simple and reliable project that will last for years. I do all my welding and repairs in excavating business and this project is just common sense. Bolt and weld and done. The ones that broke were not done correct.

RE: Anyone mount a geny to the hitch?

But when done right, it works and does last for years https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-mQ-1ws-WGvw/ThGUwDjzkrI/AAAAAAAAB6A/TTHgq0VWGdQ/w640-h480-no/DSC01670.JPG width=400 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-y0HFQwcO0ew/Tg9HtAbYdeI/AAAAAAAAB5Q/YeE5ZE2JOoU/w769-h577-no/genny+rack2.jpg width=400

RE: Splitting Firewood.

I have best of both worlds. I heat my 4 bedroom colonial with wood here in Jersey. I bring my own wood when rving. I cut down trees in my excavating work and get paid to dispose of them so I modified this 2 ram log splitter by adding the second splitter on top of the bottom one. Monster logs are split from in cab using bottom 30 ton ram. Then smaller splits are loaded on top ram with 4 way to split to my size. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-4mbYgmdGtBY/UTUfcyWwbgI/AAAAAAAACVk/kIPMl6B6Pd4/w600-h450-no/Splitter+006.jpg width=500 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-_ZR_BrX7PxI/USiWi6r5FWI/AAAAAAAACTI/tbmgQ2QFZ1s/w769-h577-no/20130222_141037_resized.jpg width=500 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-3VTSDyFEWMk/USiXk0uUmYI/AAAAAAAACTc/-KGHG_6zJ4I/w769-h577-no/20130222_141042_resized.jpg width=500

RE: RVs Parks for Long Term vs "Campground" RV Parks

I use rvparksreview to find parks in an area and then click on their own web site link to get the rates and discounts. Works fast for me if i know what part of that state I will be looking at

RE: RVs Parks for Long Term vs "Campground" RV Parks

RE: New Ram Mega 3500 DRW 4wd, old 5er....

I just picked up a ford 99 f350 drw and it too was too high. It had 4 inch blocks under springs from factory and I simply removed the 4 inch and replaced with 2 inch blocks and now matches height of my 96 f250. Ford had offered customers a free conversion because too many people complained that rear was too high for fifth wheel applications. I did not wand my fleetwood trailer any higher than it sits now https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-DUPQltCHSyc/U4MRInXylzI/AAAAAAAADas/sWrscnHAMrU/s400-no/spring+block.jpg width=400

RE: Electric Water Heater

What year is your RV? On the older models like my Fleetwood fiver, I have to manually go out and light the pilot light for my propane side of water heater to light. You should have auto pilot lighter if newer model that works when you turn on the propane side of water heater. Mine has both electric and propane and I only use propane side for most part. Many rv parks don't like or don't allow electric water heater unless you have metered electric
