RE: Steep Driveway

If he comes in on some sort of angle it will be less then if backing dead straight in.

RE: Steep Driveway

I would lay some 2x10 planks at the lowest point at curb along curb to help the first try.

RE: getting a camper worked on

I agree that they are not that hard to work on if you are handy. I never take things in for repairs if i can help it. I just pulled out my 14 foot slider to fix a weak water damaged beam and worked out great. Can only imagine what a dealer would have charged. I have about 300 dollars in parts and my time. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-LS0W_2zAlyE/VL1QK97-UzI/AAAAAAAAEXE/orr13BOMQdY/w433-h577-no/20150119_134210.jpg width=500 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-5DnllbtdvHE/VL1iq1YKLpI/AAAAAAAAETU/Maxs2u7bw3M/w769-h577-no/20150119_150145.jpg width=500 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/-yz2B8h6BYIw/VL6guFUDT3I/AAAAAAAAEU4/cMgxDHTxU6w/w769-h577-no/20150120_133730.jpg width=500 https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-xlKWY1CA9gA/VL_Qn_dgVaI/AAAAAAAAEX0/HoQcWisjsjA/w433-h577-no/20150121_111522.jpg width=500 https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-v6vdGXnbnXc/VMD8O1qrflI/AAAAAAAAEWM/wU9CeGTe4vk/w769-h577-no/20150122_083348.jpg width=500 https://lh4.googleusercontent.com/-xiVssShMULs/VMD8RgmHtcI/AAAAAAAAEWY/fd5tycTiDzE/w769-h577-no/20150122_083359.jpg width=500 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-4mt2DfNJYPk/VNU5fxDI_tI/AAAAAAAAEcU/19GuYhUrn1k/w769-h577-no/upload_-1 width=500 https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-1S60S5JndMg/VNtT117gyeI/AAAAAAAAEe4/CIoBP2CFLVQ/w769-h577-no/20150211_080537.jpg width=500

RE: slideout beam repair

thanks you guys! It was fun and learning experience doing this repair. I only use the fiver few weeks a year so it was well worth the trouble doing job and not upgrading or costing money. As I said the remainder of fiver is great condition and I have the means to fix anything if needed

RE: DIY RV Repair and Maintenance

RE: slideout beam repair

I have the electric hydraulic slide. The last few inches were where we had to jack it up a half inch to clear the stopper. No rollers on this just a skid pad at end of carpet. I did not touch carpet. The beam that we used is standard 2x4 14 ft.6 long and then a 1x2 attached to duplicate what was there for the metal frame and seals. I replaced the inside seal that the removable wood frame hides and the outside seals. This old Wilderness is in great shape other than what we repaired and it was well worth the effort as we are off season in my construction work plus I had access to shop.

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
