RE: Honda Generator Pricing EU2000i

This does make me think. Good reviews. Half the price. Hmmmm? Harbor Freight

RE: When do I change the oil?

My 6.2L F350 gets Mobil 1 0W-30 every 7500 miles. That's when the monitor starts telling me to change. I'm through with all that every 3K, 4K, 5K stuff.

RE: Opinion needed if you've owned a TT and a FW

We've had everything from a 30' TT to a 45' 5th wheel toy hauler. As for towing, I think both are fine. Today's WD hithces make towing big TTs a breeze if you know what you're doing. In all honesty, I can actually back a TT into a tighter spot than a FW. To me, I'd get which one you like the best. Not based on 5er or TT but based on what floorplan, amenities, etc. they come with.

RE: Finding fresh water.

Flying Js almost always have fresh water at the RV fuel pumps.

RE: Lighting storm in Willow Tree - Myrtle Beach

Scary. We'll be there next weekend. Can't wait, even if it does storm. I don't think we've ever been to Willow Tree that we didn't get one good thunderstorm.

RE: Are there any quality RV manufacturers?

Aluminum Trailer Company HERE and HERE These look like the kind of quality I want. I don't want faux luxury stuff. I want a tough trailer, built to last. We have a fairly large dealer here in NC that sells a lot of Featherlite and ATC. They said they much prefer the ATC on race trailers and horse trailers because they're excellent quality and their willingness to custom build for a customer.

RE: Ultrabreeze vs. MaxxAir

I will definitely install them myself if I can ever get them. Ordered them last week on Wednesday. They said the truck order was too late so they would be here this Friday at my local Camping World. Well you know where this is going. Went today to pick them up and for no reason, they weren't on the truck. Computer showed 102 available on the east coast but I guess not in Raleigh. Retail manager was very apologetic and is supposed to call me tomorrow for more details. We leave next week so I'm curious as to what they'll do.

RE: lifetime warrenty?

A fairly large NC dealer near us is pushing this same warranty. They did show me the "network" of dealers nationwide who would have to do warranty repairs for us if we had an issue while on the road. They also state this warranty is free of charge but you do have to come in every year for maintenance work. As many have said, I asked a couple of times what was considered maintenance work and how much did it cost. The sales lady was very skilled at dodging the answer. But it was so funny how much she pushed the fact they offered this warranty. It was more important to her sales pitch than the actual campers were. We bought our Work & Play somewhere else. Cheaper, too.

RE: Are there any quality RV manufacturers?

"The QC inspectors were over worked..." The RV industry has QC inspectors? :R :B I'm also somewhat curious about the Work & Play Catalyst. I know lots of the inside stuff is the same as some others buy now that we have our "regular" Work & Play, I wonder if the Catalyst will be even better. But its really darned heavy. Of all the campers we've owned in the past ten years, the first was $17,500, the second was $28,000, the third was almost $60,000, and the fourth was $27,500. The $60,000 Cyclone was by far the sorriest piece of junk I've ever seen. The first two were awesome and this fourth one is starting out really well so far. Best of luck to you. Keep us posted.

Black Poop Pipe Tube

How's that for a thread title? :B Our Work & Play came with a 4" black tube underneath for holding the sewer pipe. But our RhinoFlex is going to need a 6" diameter pipe. Underneath the camper is all black, including the 4" pipe from the factory. I definitely want another black one to go along side it. Two questions: 1. What is black PVC pipe called? Seems it has a different name. 2. Where can I get one? Lowe's and Home Depot don't carry it. Any other easy ideas without going to a plumbing warehouse or something?

RE: GVWR & Payload F450/550 Difference With AirBags

You have a Fleetpride in Asheville. FleetPride measured my F350 and after some calculations, they made me some extra springs to stop my ridiculous sagging under load. It made it a whole new truck. Yours is obviously different but if I were you, I'd at least go show them what you're dealing with. They're awesome here in Raleigh.

RE: Do you Adjust your WDH When You Drive With a Full Water Tank

No, but my FW tank is between the axles. In my opinion, this would be a huge factor. My 110 gallons sit right between the axles as well so I think adjusting the WD hitch is totally unnecessary. In fact, it could make things worse.

RE: Easy in/out refueling stop I-85 Greensboro to Charlotte

Just south of Salisbury are several places that would work well. Pilot, Wilco, etc. North of Salisbury seems to be not as easy "on and off".

RE: Grand Design Momentum

Most toy haulers have a GVWR more than the combined axles. Remember, some of the weight rests on the pin, too.

RE: DEF Shelf Life!

...you sure you didn't take the truck to a Ford dealer by mistake...that kind of treatment is typical Ford style customer dis-service... Seriously? Let it go.

RE: Southport/Ft. Fisher Ferry

I emailed them through their website. Hope to hear something Monday.

Southport/Ft. Fisher Ferry

For my NC friends. We're headed to Willow Tree in a couple of weeks just for the weekend. When we leave on Sunday, we're probably gonna go to Britt's to get a few dozen doughnuts. The last time I went on the ferry, it was fairly crowded but it was a weekday. There was quite a line and the ferry was full. But we were in the car. If we did the ferry, we'd have the Work & Play. That's about 50' of truck and trailer. What would you do? We like the ferry and it saves the driving miles and fuel. Its always a nice ride. But a truck and trailer take up the room of four or five cars. If that means some have to wait for the next boat, I'd feel bad. Anyone else done it? Should I just go on up to Wilmington and come back down?

RE: Max Towing Wars - Ford vs Ram

As a former F450 owner, I still say they're focusing on the wrong stuff. Let's face it, most people who are shopping for a $70,000+ truck are not the kind who are planning to take their truck to do drag races and stuff. They're looking for a company work truck or something to pull their big giant 5th wheel. Enough power already, even Chevrolet. Focus on dependability, longevity, and fuel mileage. I don't care how fast it pulls 30,000 lbs. How much diesel will I use from here to Disneyworld is far more important than how quick I can leave a stoplight.
