RE: 2016 vehicle quality ratings released

We have two Kia cars and two F-350s. I'm good with that.

RE: Ocean Lakes - Anyone Down Here This Week?

We'll be down there the first week of August in the 2000 section. Looking forward to seeing the new waterpark. We'll be there the second weekend of August. 2000 section as well. Can't wait.

RE: Awning ties

Any suggestions for awning ties for my 2011 coachmen Freelander? Camping this weeken and it was very windy, retracted awning. Are there some better than others, I am looking at the Claw c200. Might want to ask the moderators to move this to the General section. This is discussion about campgrounds.

RE: Good reasons NOT to go with 5er over TT....

When only considering a 30' RV, I'd opt for the TT if they're both similar. I've had both and presently own a 5er. But something in the 30' range with a properly set-up WD hitch will be carefree driving for a Ram 2500. Nice having an open bed if needed.

RE: RV Share - Feedback/Thoughts

A huge reason we RV instead of staying in a hotel is the fact I get to sleep in my own bed, shower in my own shower, lie down on my own couch, etc. Nobody else has been there.

RE: 2019 Cummins in Ram: 2 significant & simultaneous milestones

2019 will mark the 30th anniversary since Cummins found its way under the hood of a previously slow selling Dodge Ram pickup truck, sparking, without any spark plugs, a trend that completely revolutionized the RV industry... leading to the proliferation of larger and heavier trailers and an entire new class called toy haulers, enabled in no small part by the increased capacity of the turbo diesel powered trucks used to haul them around. 1989 was the year this unrelenting trend began, which survived the '91 recession, the 2000 dot-bomb, 9/11/01, the 2005-8 fuel price spike, the 2008-11 mortgage backed global financial crisis, over a decade of war in the Middle East, and all the marketing storms spewing out of Dearborn. Even more significantly, 2019 will also mark the 100th anniversary of Cummins as an engine company. And, 2019 is the year that FCA is expected to introduce a revamped HD Ram. I don't know about you, but I'm kind of curious how Cummins and FCA will leverage these notable milestones into the new 2019 product that descends from this two tier ancestral legacy. Did you make this up on your own or was this a copy and paste from some cheesy column? Great truck and great engine, no doubt. But this post looks like it was written by the Ram folks themselves.

RE: Work and Play water tanks

We had our 2014 30WRS for a year and a half. About 8000 miles going to our ATV races. Every race, we hauled the full 110 gallons of water with us. So in theory, that was close to 4000 miles with a full tank. No problems at all. The tank sat right between the axles and it did perfect.

RE: TT to a 5Th Wheel

If I were looking for something around 30'-33', I'd probably prefer a TT. The bed of the truck stays empty and a properly set up WD hitch makes it just as stable and easy to pull as fifth wheel. The only real reason I prefer a 5er is size. I can't imagine towing a 43' TT.

We're headed down to Daddy Joe's in Tabor City, NC next week. All I hear is how nice the place is but the skeeters can be big enough to carry off small children. What's the latest and greatest thing these days for fighting off mosquitos? We really enjoy chilling on the patio but not when we're swatting ourselves constantly.

RE: Military grade aluminum LOL

Watch this Troy then ask yourself if this is what you want your next truck made out of! Ford Tough NOT! Don This coming from a guy who has a 3.0L V6 diesel. That's bold dude.

RE: Tires again.....Hartland by Discount Tire

I'm with Rusty on this... Tires are just one of the few things I won't cheap out either... I had 2 of the G-614's blow in 1 day back in 2012.. They were 5 years old and at the end of a good run.... Interesting enough I had No damage, the tread separated and the tire was still holding air , I swapped them out to the 17.5's once I got home and never looked back. you get what you pay for I'm also with Rusty on this. The peace of mind the G614s give me is more than worth the price. As I've said before, its bad enough having a blowout and tearing up your camper. But 99% of the time, its going to happen while you're on vacation. I work too hard to have my down time ruined by another TowMax scenario.

RE: Securing my Samurai in my toyhauler

I've never hauled a car but lots of quads. Much lighter but in my opinion, the absolute best way to secure a vehicle is to have reinforced D-rings spaced properly so one is in front and behind each tire. Then I run a ratchet strap from one ring over the tire and down to the other ring. Ratchet it down firmly. This keeps the flex of the vehicle off the strap. Its better for the vehicle's suspension and better for the straps. Just my .02.

RE: Equalizer Help-Cat Scale Weights Included

I'm not sure how the weights help someone dial in an Equalizer. Have you done any measurements of how much the truck has dropped at both front and rear wheels? I used measurements this way to dial mine in on our former TT and it was one of the most stable rigs I've ever pulled. That Work & Play had a 1500 lb. tongue weight. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v357/lawnspecialties/Work%20amp%20Play%20001_zpsrvs5eae4.jpg

RE: No more BFG for me...

I had a set of Rugged Trails on my work truck. One separated at 17000 miles. Plenty of tread left but I went ahead and replaced them all with the new All-Terrain KO2. These are doing fine so far but they seem to be wearing out quicker than normal. We'll see.

RE: Best time and places to shop?

Being a fellow southerner, I like the idea of buying in the Fall and working out the issues before the busy season. 1. It doesn't interrupt your summer RV plans. 2. The dealer shouldn't be too busy to fix your issues. 3. It gives you a great excuse to go camping during the off-season. Myrtle Beach during the winter is still fun. Just take plenty of LP gas. We're headed to Disneyworld the middle of December. A great time to be there camping.

RE: Using golf carts around RV parks

Just to add to some of these latest comments. Don't get a gas cart. Almost all campgrounds that allow carts DO NOT allow gas carts. By the way. Liability insurance will run around $100/year. Most campgrounds will require that as well.

RE: Wheel Torque

These guesses around 100 lbs. or so are probably correct. My 16" wheels have a sticker right on the fender for 100 lbs.. If you don't get an accurate response, just do similar to what I did. I bought a set of torque sticks and I keep a cordless impact wrench with us on trips. I check the lugs before every trip we take. Takes about three minutes to do all six wheels.

RE: Using golf carts around RV parks

Will you be able to use it enough to "justify" the cost? Most likely not. Is it worth it? For us, absolutely yes. Its part of RVing for us. Maybe half the places we go to allow a golf cart. But the ones that do, we really enjoy having it; especially Fort Wilderness at Disneyworld. Remember. Probably 75% of the people with RVs don't use their RVs enough to justify the cost. But that's in terms of just money. We do it anyway because we enjoy it. If all we were looking for was a cost justification, most of us would stay in hotels.

RE: How to get rid of bats

Just be careful. Barney Fife said bats can fly and get into your hair. Then they lay their eggs and you go crazy. Just saying.

RE: Post that do not stick to subject

I used to watch Chips. Ponch was cool. But I never liked Fish. Never been a fan of Abe Vigoda.
