RE: MCD Shades

Is there something I am overlooking? I don’t see the difference between an MCD roller shade and a $10 walmart roller shade. Except for, of course, the price. YEP! Have a look at the product on the MCD web site. Yeah...what you're missing is they come with a 90% solar shade, the night shade completely blocks light...and you need to see how they work with two fingers....WAY better than $10 roller shades!!

RE: MCD Shades

Always wanted them...finally have them...won't be without them. They block the heat and help insulate against the cold...

RE: Stumped?

Landmark was Heartland's very first line back in I think 2004...it has been their flagship, top of the line since the very beginning.

RE: Even the pros have their moments!

One of the pranks brats pull is to visit a truck stop and pull the 5th wheel release so when the driver finishes his lunch and goes to leave.. SEE ABOVE. I could tell you what I'd like to do for those brats, but alas... Illegal now days That's why we keep a padlock on our hitch arm...it can't be pulled.

RE: Urgent pull rite hitch help needed

Do yourself a favor. Ignore anybody that tells you that you should see daylight between the plate and the pinbox. Look at the pin on the pin box. It looks something like an upside down "T". The latch part of your hitch fits between the the lip at the bottom and the flat at the top. If you lift the trailer until you see daylight you can pinch the latch between the bottom lip and the underside of the plate. When hitching you want the pinbox to hit about the middle of the plate and ride up the plate and into the slot. When it goes in the the curved jaw will snap into place behind the pin. When unhitching you want to raise the trailer taking most of the weight off the suspension of the truck. Make sure to chock the trailer wheels at this point. Then put the truck in reverse and ease back. Set the parking brake. Then put the truck in Park. Now go see how easy it is to unlatch the hitch. Unhook cord and brake safety cable and ease the truck out from under the trailer. Excuse me...we've been using Pullrite hitches for almost nine years...have ALWAYS lifted the pinbox until we see a sliver of daylight...have NOT had one issue with this procedure, and have NEVER had it pinch or bind!!

RE: Fifth wheel hitch - rail bending and pulling up truck bed

Just had our new hitch installed by the Chevy dealer...they did an excellent job and the rails are mounted to the welded in frame brackets...not through just the bed.

RE: Chevrolet Factory Hitch

B.O.Plenty...so do we!! Liked the 2011 we had, but they really stepped things up with the 2015...we LOVE it! Thought they missed the mark on the DEF filler being under the hood...but after a friend with a Ford, and reading about several others accidentally putting DEF in the fuel tank in Fords and Rams...I'll take the little inconvenience any day.

RE: Chevrolet Factory Hitch

Just got our new Chevy and we ordered it with the Curt 24Q...and we have no problem with it. Does yours have a drop in puck system or do you still need rails? B.O. No puck system...still need rails.

RE: Urgent pull rite hitch help needed

P.S...when unhitching only lift the pin box till you see daylight between the pinbox and the saddle before trying to pull the handle. If it won't pull have him bump back just slightly and pull again...that usually releases the pressure. If its too high out of the saddle it will not open...hope this helps.

RE: Urgent pull rite hitch help needed

Yep, it was high hitched. It sounds like we have been doing it wrong ever since new! I still don't understand exactly what we should be aiming for when we hitch. Hubby says he understands, but he's not the one watching when he backs up. We have been looking in the hole and centering the hitch pin, then lowering the weight onto the truck. Their booklet is not very helpful! We did get the truck unhitched and pull rite is sending the parts to have it fixed. When hitching, make sure the pin is slightly lower than the hitch saddle...the pin box should actually ride up the saddle as it slides into place in the hitch. What I love about the Pull rite is the solid "clunk" when the hitch engages and wraps around the pin...you KNOW it's hitched!! You should have the pin lowered into position prior to the truck backing under it...I watch, centering the pin as he slowly backs up. When it's close I lower the pin to the proper height and have him finish backing as I watch the pin box ride the saddle into position...as I said, when done this way you will hear the tell tale sound and see the arm pull in as it latches...

RE: hitches for 5th wheels

talked to a shop and they suggest the pullrite slider as I have a Duramax HD and the box size is smaller. What does anyone have to say about this brand. Thanks Pull rite is one of the best hitches on the market. Have owned two TT hitches and fiver hitches...all Pull rites!

RE: Urgent pull rite hitch help needed

Make sure the pin box is not too high out of the hitch...that will cause it to bind also.

RE: New Full Timing

I agree with Old-Biscuit on this one, sort of. Maybe there should be two different classifications for "full time RVers". Retired Full Time RVers Non-Retired Full Time RVers X2 RV - RECREATIONAL Vehicle I think there should be a forum offered for those who live permanently in a TT or MH perhaps because it is less expensive than a home, financial difficulties, etc. Their questions would be better answered by people in the same situation. Full Time "RV'ing" is a completely different way of life and is usually planned for years in advance as one's choice of retirement which includes RV'ing in their RV which encompasses traveling across the US, etc. So where would that leave us?? We planned our full time life for 15 years...not too long after retirement and hitting the road we decided we needed more income...have been working jobs around the country ever since. We sometimes sit in one spot 6-8 months until contract is done then move to the next job. As far as we're concerned living in your RV full time is "full timing" regardless of how often we move it.

RE: RV Park has dog park in it.

One of the best things you can do for a dog is to socialize it! They are pack animals and love the interaction...the only problems I've ever experienced in a dog park came from dogs who were there for the first time and their owner's were terrified. The dogs pick up on that and become aggressive... Once the pack "puts them in their place" everybody got along just fine.

RE: Safe electric heaters you can run all night

We use an oil filled radiator...only one we feel safe using overnight as we have pets. I went and checked out the Vornado site as so many recommended them...BE AWARE...Vornado has a recall on the VH110...can overheat causing unit to melt and/or catch fire. Owners cautioned to discontinue use immediately!

RE: Winter living In Wyoming

As for skirting...saw one guy who used corrugated plastic, with metal rails nailed to the ground and pipe insulation on top to protect rig (was not attached to rig) and then bungee cords underneath to pull the skirt snug against the RV. Not only did this look really good...it was a heck of an insulation/wind block and then you can place work lamps underneath to help heat the area.
