RE: No Direct TV Receptions

You basically have to have a direct connection from the satellite to the receiver with no splitters or amps in line. Since it's a new unit it may be wired for satellite but should be marked. I would run a cable straight through the door to the receiver and set up the dish. Once I know it works I would then attempt to use the trailer wiring because even if prewired for satellite they could be crossed.

RE: Loading problem.

Backing the truck's rear wheels up onto wheel ramps helps raise the front of the trailer. My concern is that you are increasing the incline of the ramp to the point that it becomes dangerous to drive the cycle up. If the ramp is dry and has an abrasive coating for traction you may be OK. However, when it's wet it really creates a problem. I do not recommend a running start as you could lose control. It needs to be eased up the ramp. That brings us back to the incline of the ramp, especially if loading when it's wet. Another solution may be to use an addition ramp that can be positioned to contact the trailer's ramp about half way up. A longer secondary ramp of this kind will decrease the incline. You could also elevate the leading edge of the ramp and then use the secondary ramp to get you up to trailer's ramp. That way the incline would be less. Your problem really seems like a design flaw of the trailer's manufacturer. Maybe the axles are placed to far rearward which makes is harder to get the right incline. Just some thoughts. Wouldn't it decrease the angle? If the door is on the rear of the trailer and you raise the front you lower the rear, decreasing the angle. Of course if raised enough you could create a bad incline on the inside of the TH and cause problems but to raise it that high would cause other problems......

RE: Breaker tripping.

Perhaps a bad converter and thus not charging the battery causing a dead battery? Disconnecting the battery and still having the problem eliminates the battery charging from overloading the converter. Really sounds like a bad converter now. Since you have a dead battery and the converter will not run due to tripping the breaker, put a charger on the battery and see if the voltage will come up. Leave the charger attached and it should provide 12V until you replace the converter.

RE: Loading problem.

You want to be hitched up to load and something simple right? What about driving the rear wheels of the truck on leveling blocks which would raise the rear of the truck and hitch thus lowering the rear of the trailer? Might take a few leveling blocks but should be sturdy. I would use 2X12's stacked.

RE: Ugh- found some water in the overhead bunk- what to do.

My opinion's free so you get what you pay for. My theory is the RV shop would just patch it and make it look good and you would pay a premium. Since you appear to have good skills and diagnosed where it was leaking and have a vested interest in a quality repair, I think I would do it myself. Hopefully folks with some experience will chime in with suggestions and you can take the best from those suggestions and make a quality repair, most likely much better than a dealer. Joe

Henderson Beach Fl, Electrictry

I was just able to reserve a site at Henderson Beach for the 4th of July and noticed the site says 30 amps. I haven't stayed there in the summer since I upgraded to 50 amp 5th wheel. Can anyone confirm 30 amps only? 4th of July and I'm going to be limited to 1 A/C?

RE: Decision on a Fifth Wheel

I have a 2011 Sierra 345RET which was the precursor to the 346RET. I don't have the windows in the rear and my sink is on the island not the forward wall in the kitchen. I also have a full closet next to the bed rather then the table and window facing the rear. Other than that I think they are the same, the 346 is just the new model. I haven't had any issues and use it about 12-14 times a year. I have put about 20K miles on it with no problems. Feel free to ask any specific question and I'll try to answer. Joe
