RE: Hill Climbing on Dirt Road

I creep up a gravel / dirt hill that is about 200 feet long and at a grade of 25% ( 1' vert. In 4' horiz.). I use 4 low and in gear no. 1. I also lock my hubs too. I was a bit worried the first time I did it but not anymore.

RE: Fresh water tank

When I got under my rig to fix a FW tank issue, I learned how it was supported. The support brackets had room to slide on the frame. If an exact fit were available, ours could be replaced with a larger tank. But I would guess that it may not be too easy to find one.

RE: "Don't Buy New"

We purchased our 5er 7years ago. It was 4 years old at that time. Over the past 7 years, we have seen evidence of a slide motor that had been replaced, a valve replaced behind the shower, and new tires to hide a bent axle. But since then, and after fixing the bent axle, our 5er has been just fine. I never could figure out why people want to buy new with the depreciation factor. How can the new rig be THAT much better?

RE: Is my F150 powerful enough?

This is a joke, right? 10-4, but a fun read anyway.

RE: Avoiding Sacramento

From Beale AFB Hwy 20 is north of the base. Take Hwy 20 east to I-80 then to Reno. Connect to 395 south and of you go. Reno/Sparks traffic can be a headache sometimes but if you avoid the morning, noon and evening rush it's not too bad. The dead of winter can be a bit nasty on the eastern side of the Sierras. I would get to the valley and stay there.

RE: Avoiding San Francisco

If I was coming up I-5, wanted to avoid the Bay Area but get over to 101 to continue up north, I would cut over from I-5 through Clear Lake on Hwy 20. A bit north of the Sacramento area.

RE: Dometic toilet slow to fill

As a comparison, my tank bowl inlet flows at about the same rate as a sink. If it is not, I would look for a restriction of some sort along the route.

RE: Towing with steep grades

I have figured that my truck & 5er will speed up going down the hills and the transmission will not hold the RPM's when the grade is over about -7%. I will brake and get the speed way down and repeat as often as need be. Only once did I heat the brakes up too much (could smell them), and I figured that if I would have just slowed my overall speed down more, I would have been okay.

RE: This is the kinda **** that wakes me up at night

I've never tested our rail, but I would hope that the pressure from the door opening would snap it open.

RE: Allowing my SO to take our unit for the weekend ?

Since I don't have to suck it up too often, I would suck it up this time and be the Dad and husband and just do it without any grumbling.

RE: Modifying 5th Wheel landing legs

If there was a way to make that process easier than having to get my face right in there, I would be all for it. But I can't think of any other way to do it. I will put one of my leveling boards down on certain surfaces to make it a bit easier on my one knee though.

RE: dumb drivers

The problem with thinning out the gene pool is that they seem to want to take us along with them.

RE: Wi-Fi Oops

These types of stories just keep reminding me that even in the beautiful town of Trinidad, everybody needs to stay connected.

RE: New vs used (from another angle - RV depreciation "gap")?

All the numbers can be thrown out. In our community, a new high paying employer came in and now all the cost of vehicles and RV's just went up. Supply and demand.

RE: Oregon Coast, forest fires, and smoke, current conditions

The fires in northwest California are bad. The smoke is going north, sometimes north east, and sometimes east. We are staying put right now.

RE: Emergency Escape - What to Do??

Yes, when all else fails, scrape, drop and get out. That's the way wee see it.

RE: When is overprice, a Rippoff ?

The only time I feel ripped off is when I am in a bind to purchase something and I don't have an option of buying somewhere else.
