RE: 30 AMP VS 50 AMP

We were looking at some new 5th wheels the other day that came with 30 amp service. My wife asked the salesman if we could get the unit in a 50 amp service. He said that all we would have to do, on their units, is change our the 30 amp connectors to 50 amp connectors that the rest of the unit was already wired for 50 amps. Anyone know if that can be done? What make and models where they?I am a little concerned that if that is true the units didn't come with 50 amp. cords etc. as a selling feature.I would have the manufacture verify that little comment.Were you watching his face when he said it?

RE: 30 AMP VS 50 AMP

If you don't camp where 50 amp.is available it doesn't matter at all.

RE: Discount offf RSRP for 2015 model

What should I offer for a 2015 new trailer. The dealer has it at about 30% off now . How much more is reasonable to ask off? How about store credit or hitch work? How much? Thank you You are asking the wrong people.ask the dealer for what ever you want,he won't be shy telling you yes or no.And there is no such thing as an MSRP,it is what ever the dealer or manufacture wants it to be.It is just another sales tool to make you feel good about the deal you think you got.

RE: Dodge Ram trucks buyback ordered

You can't imagine the millions going to be made by dealers doing all kinds of imaginative deals on buy back trucks.

RE: Trip report

In view of a current thread in "Beginning RVing", I felt it might be a good idea to make a report on our last 700+ mile trip, with three adults and two dogs. The chassis battery, which I had been watching, expecting failure, finally did fail. It has been replaced. One of the tailgate latches on the ATV trailer broke, probably due to the rough detours on the highway construction areas. I haven't fixed it yet. There are a LOT of bugs on the front of the coach. I need to wash it. That's about it for bad things. No tires blew out, nothing else bent or broke, nobody was injured or died, I did not get anywhere close to the fires, and having partial hookups instead of dry camping in the meadow was great! As always, the coach handled the Continental Divide (Marias Pass) with ease. I do like that V10! Welcome to the trip of a life time section.First of all did you hit the search button?You are sure over weight and that V10 should be ok if you don't blow a valve,But then you can contact Cummins because they do carry Ford parts.Is this your first trip?Stop by Camping World and get a Tune up while you are replacing those 10 year old tires.OK I am going to take some of my cheap Mexican medications now so my teeth quit hurting.Good one Mowermech.lol.

RE: 97 Dodge 2500 diesel known problems?

KDP!!! Killer Dowel Pin. This is best fixed before it breaks. The prerepair procedure is easy. I didn't see if this was auto or stick? If auto, set a little money aside each month for a rebuild. If manual, do not bog the engine. The engine is a medium duty diesel. The 5 spd transmission will likely lose the 5th gear nut if used at low rpm/heavy weight. Get the steering stabilizer box. This stops the steering box from flexing the frame. Get the 3k governor spring kit. It will feel like adding 30hp. The stock engine runs out of power near 2600rpms. The GSK kit will pull solid upto the redline. By now the soft rubber fuel lines should have been swapped for new ones. Swap the starter contacts for new 24v units. The starter will go along time. The contacts not as much. Unless he plans to run extreme power, stay with the mechanical fuel pump. It's easy to repair or replace. Adding power to the 12v is also cheap and easy. It also gets expensive with the extras. I had a 97 and the above is bang on.

RE: Not a big enough trailer

Trade down and back if you need to find a bunk trailer.repairing leave to dealer,it doesn't work for you anymore move on.You mod it you will probably lose more money and make it even harder to sell.You are supposed to enjoy it not stress about how to fix things.

RE: Taking goods and groceries into Canada

Just because the officer doesn't ask you if you have certain things doesn't mean you are ok to cross the borders with them.Buy fresh once you cross is the simplest.

RE: Retired, first time buyer

Good on you for your retirement.Now the next thing you need is a motor home that has nothing wrong with it,don't buy multi owner junk,or your large sum of money and anticipated enjoyment will be the same place ---gone!Take your time,renting a time or two and size is a very good idea to get the feel of things.Good luck.

RE: Smokers

I have started using a tube style pellet smoker and find it likes me.I do like cold smoking cheese etc. and hot smoking over propane or charcoal.12 " tube lasts 5 hours,don't use cheap pellets or charcoal at any time.

RE: Moderator

The forum will never be closed until it stops making money with advertising for the corp.It serves more then one function for sure,corporations are charged with making money for the share holders as are the employees.It costs the general public nothing to use it except forgoing some data for the advertisers to use.It is all common knowledge where we live how much income we make etc.so no big deal.

RE: My Truck Hasn't been Started in Almost 1 yr

No worries. Charge the batteries, check the fluids and start her up. Tractor 2 years without starting. Fired right up like it was started yesterday. Diesel car, 7 years without starting. Glowed it twice and it lit before I could get my hand off of the key. After you run it around for a few miles it might be a good idea to change the FF. X2

RE: My Truck Hasn't been Started in Almost 1 yr

The inside of your cylinder walls may have accumulated a light coating of rust (like brake discs do when they sit unused), which can cause your piston rings to stick in their grooves. I'd want to put a little bit of oil into the cylinder bores and rotate the engine by hand a couple of revolutions, but you certainly don't want to do that under compression. And you are going to do that how?Diesel is oil.

RE: Checking vehicle at every pit stop finally pays off

My wife and friends we travel with often joke about how every time we stop for coffee or lunch on the road, As soon as we get out of the car I walk around feel all the tires and wheel surfaces, checking for excessive heat or other problems. Last Sunday my youngest requested we stop at McDonald's and I agreed. Upon checking I found this... http://i.imgur.com/PBOepekl.jpg Two more miles before we would've been entering interstate 80 for the remainder of our ride home. Better to install the spare in McDonald's parking lot then on the side of the highway! Not to mention potential damage to trailer. All tires appeared fine one hour earlier at previous check. While you are at it check your wear pattern,also check your loaded weight.

RE: Ammo OK?

Everything I've heard points at them being extra paranoid about guns. Why thank you for the kind level headed remarks.I do believe they will be helpful when passing into our country for your fellow country men.I wonder if you might elaborate on the less extra things that we are paranoid about.Never mind,it wouldn't be relevant either.
