RE: CVT in your 1 ton?

Some tractors are running CVTs these days. Lord knows they rely on torque.

RE: Tire Guru Question

Same as mine, too. I have GoodYear G614s and supposedly they recommend a minimum 6.5" rim. I have 6" rims and they're doing just fine.

RE: Tyre pressures

My F350 calls for 65 front and 80 rear...that's what I use. X2

RE: Why a 5th wheel over a tow trailer?

Learjet's last line sums it up. If you want something around 20'-33', a TT is just as nice as a fifth wheel. If you want something in the 40' range, a fifth wheel is the way to go. I've had three TTs and 2 fifth wheels. The TTs with their properly set up WD hitch towed just as fine as the 5ers. We hit some wicked storms on some race trips last year and it was no problem at all. Last year. A fantastic set up for our races. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v357/lawnspecialties/Work%20amp%20Play%20001_zpsrvs5eae4.jpg This year. A fantastic set up for just fun camping.:) http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v357/lawnspecialties/Vengeance%20001_zpsjcrveet9.jpg

RE: Talladega and the Chase

As I said in a previous thread which was promptly deleted: NASCAR has "ruled" the sport to death. Things always change over time but this is ridiculous. The cars are the same, the chase is always changed to try to save the sport, and the stands are getting more and more empty. Just let them race.

RE: max capacity tow buffer

Sometimes I'm over the max. There's my buffer.

RE: Equalizer Hitch - Love it when a plan comes together!

We recently sold our W&P toy hauler and went back to a 5er. But I used Equalizers on both the W&P and the Sabre TT long before that. When set up properly, it is truly a great hitch.

RE: Differential fluid thoughts/recommendations...

Is there any reason why switching to 75W-140 would not be advised versus 75W-90? I'm not wondering if its necessary. Just if its not advisable.

RE: OEM tires-Toy Haulers

Our former 2014 Work & Play 30WRS had Westlakes. I kept them at 75-80 psi and when parked at home, they were always kept in the shade with tire covers. After 1.5 years and probably 8000 miles, they looked almost new. That being said, I still went with G614s on the new Vengeance. But that was because I did it as part of the deal. If G614s were out of my budget, I'd jump on the Sailuns in a heartbeat. My Towmax blowout and camper damage from four years ago keeps me from being too confident on any E rated tire on a heavy fifth wheel toy hauler.

RE: Valve Stems

:R No offense in any way meant to the original poster or, anyone who has posted since then. I don't believe that the aluminum rim posted in the picture should be able or, allowed, to withstand 110psi Steel !! Maybe this combination of issues are part of today's tire problems. Sorry for interrupting. Have a nice Day This is a 3 axle 5th wheel. I'm sure the wheels are fine The wheels have stamped on the back a maximum of 110 psi. By the way. I just recently heard back from my dealer. They said they only charged me what the tire dealership charged them for the mounting of the tires. The fact that I emailed them beforehand about making sure the correct stems were on the wheels, did not get mentioned. Then he said they'd never use that tire dealer again. I don't care. It doesn't help me any and somebody has my $300 for a shoddy job. Its all good. I'm totally happy with everything about the camper except this fiasco with the incorrect stems and the screwed up Equa-Flex. But we're good to go now and we have plenty of camping trips coming up this year including Ocean Lakes, possibly Willow Tree, some more of our favorite state parks, and the finale' at Fort Wilderness in mid-December.

RE: Montana High Country vs Heartland Big Horn

Big Horn is a couple levels above. The High Country is a lower end Montana, built to weigh less. The Big Horn would compare to the full on Montana line...Build quality might be close but nobody will beat Heartland customer service! B.O. Great to hear you've had good customer service. My opinion is they're the worst RV manufacturer today. Miserable customer service and for me and our recent 5er shopping, multiple dealers told me they'd been having quality issues a lot lately. Everybody has an opinion so continue to do your research. But I personally wouldn't have a Big Horn.

You definitely need a DRW. Instigator

RE: Are you plugged in all of the time?

Plugged in all the time at home. I have never checked the water level in a battery and never had a problem. Five campers in 12 years. Longest we had one was four years.

RE: Ocean Lakes?? Site 2178 scoop

We have 2136 in August. When I reserved online, I put in a length of 43' I believe. 2136 is what it offered us. Yes, its a different line than 2178 is but its in the same block.

RE: Got half lucky!

God a couple of you are real azzholes aren't you. flagypsy yes I have a friggin spare,but I am not about to head home with out it being repaired. and cruiserjs MB is the universally recognized abbreviation for Myrtle Beach any place outside of Canada, at least according to all those circular black and white bumper stickers I am seeing all over the East coast. for those that did offer advice or encouragement thank you. I did end up at Blacks tire. I gave them the choice repair or replace. they repaired with an inside patch. Twnety minutes in and out. $16.00 American cash in case fla gypsy needs more clarifaction. three $5.00 bills and one $1.00 bill. I'm spelling it out so folks won't think I'm lazy!!! Awesome you got it fixed. That could have put a huge damper on the trip. I have plugged so many landscape trailer tires, its ridiculous. But I'd much rather have a patch on my camper tires. As for the abbreviations, I'm actually with the azzholes I guess. You're wanting some help so make it easy on everyone to understand. Some of your post reads a little odd.

RE: KZ Inferno

Although never owned one, I have always liked the Infernos. I think KZ makes a nice RV from what I've heard and like you, I've heard more good than bad. If it checks out OK and you really like it, I wouldn't hesitate buying.

RE: Awesome Tool

My torque sticks just arrived. I ordered them last night around 8:00 and paid $10 for same day delivery. The guy just delivered them about an hour ago. Wow. I will use them for pretty much any and all tire changes I have as long as the ft./lbs. equals what the specs call for.

RE: Dennis Dillion Dodge

Googling Dennis Dillon, I see a Dennis Dillon Dodge in Idaho. Do you live in SC and go to Idaho to get a good deal?

RE: Drain master hose

Our new Vengeance came with it. I like it so far. Easy to hook up the hose, the entire hose assembly fits in a box mounted right beside the drain underneath the camper, and its easy to drain the tanks with far less risk of making a stinky mess. Nothing like watching the brown water go through the little window. :E
