RE: Red Cliff campground in Montana

I haven't been there in years, but yes you should be able to

RE: Lifted truck towing :(

The trucks components are still only rated for your GVWR i.e. your axle and brakes. The air bags reduce sag but won't increase your GVWR because of this. Hope this helps. Exactly my point, thanks You didn't say one way or the other if you also got taller tires with the lift.. (I can't imagine anyone getting a 6" lift and not also getting taller tires) If you did, did you also get new axle gearing to compensate for the taller tires? Taller tires will affect your final drive ratio and basically bog your engine down if you didn't change gears Something I forgot, yes the tow rating is based on the actual ratio of engine RPM to miles traveled, bigger tires effects that

RE: Progressive Industries EMS display brightness - annoying?

I specifically mounted mine so it was out of line-of-sight

RE: Lifted truck towing :(

Your math looks close However the airbags do not add to GVWR or CGVWG With that much lift, you might have to lift the trailer also, either that or use a drop hitch (which usually means no sway or equilizer bars) The trailer needs to be level while towing.

RE: Keyless rv lock

We've had one for several months now (we had to replace the door due to an accident) We find the keyless entry very convenient for ourselves We find it's also very convenient for the use of the group of people we normally camp with. We make certain we carry keys for the battery failure and have the wireless key fob in the tow vehicle.

RE: Is this Site Declining and losing Members?

This forum's functionality is not the greatest either. For ex., I have not been able to use the percent symbol in a post and URLs of photos cannot contain a percent symbol for all of 2016. Me also (using FireFox), posts hang until time-out.

RE: Is this Site Declining and losing Members?

Several people have mentioned the use of FB groups as growing. I have joined a number, but have found that on this forum, we have more knowledgeable people willing to help others. More of the FB groups have people that seem to have absolutely NO IDEA of anything to do with an RV, and everybody else saying just go for it with no clue as to the reality. I see lots of really off the wall questions that people are jumping into things without doing any research and on this forum, most posters tend to recommend going slowly and doing research. Different types of folks? I have a tendency to research anything to death before I go forward. Being a member of a couple FB groups I can agree. There I have seen people with absolutely no clue giving "absolute" advise. Like one guy that insisted there is a difference between wire for "AC" and "DC" (not voltage or current)....

RE: Is this Site Declining and losing Members?

I think it is definitely declining. Some of that decline is probably attributable to the fact that forums like this in general are losing participation. Facebook, Twitter and the like have taken over the discussion market..... EVERY web based forum I've been involved with (each over a decade) is declining. The old "newsgroups" (remember them) are mostly down to a core of old-farts that just don't want to move on. "Social Media" is growing.

RE: fuel drain plug on bottom of the gas tank

My recollection is that there is no drain plug on the E series tank I looked a some images (E series manual) of the tank parts and could see no sign of a plug

RE: Has anyone been stopped by D.O.T.

As others have noted, your safety is a bigger concern then the scale. Maybe something like 0.001 percent of RVs have been checked for weight, until this thread I only knew about Calf and BC BC has (a few times) stopped RVs on some of their steeper roads (BC-5) to check and weight and brakes. Calf has (a few times) checked RVs are the border stations for weight and state of registry (looking for people with Calf DL and Montana plates)

RE: Northwood/Arctic Fox prices vary so much. Any advice.

Two dealers that I found years ago that will give you the best deals are Thunder RV in Lagrande and Apache in Portland. Apache is also in Everett. I would add to that list Sumner RV

RE: Pullrite SuperGlide owner question

If I leave the capture plate on, I hang a red-tag from the king-pin. So far that was stopped them from moving it. Actually I'm considering removing and selling the Superglide, the previous owner installed it and I find it unneeded (it's a long bed). Between the hitch-unhitch angle, the slight increase in maintenance (over regular hitches) and the weight when I need to pull the hitch I'm wishing I had a regular hitch.

RE: Is Warranty Forever a good deal?

Although a few people come out ahead with an extended warranty, mathematically it is a losing proposition. Will the annual cost always be guaranteed at $350 or will it rise? Factor in the cost of the annual inspection and all the nit-pick things they will require you to allow them to fix in order to keep the warranty. It sounds like a great deal for the people selling the "warranty forever". It's a great profit center. Between the yearly costs, the deductible, the exclusions, etc it's hard for them not to make money.

RE: Is Warranty Forever a good deal?

I just bought a new jayco jayflight, the dealer explained the forever warranty which has to be done yearly at a cost of 350.00 or more which covers most things as long as I have the yearly inspection done. Do any of you have this warranty and is it worth the money? Just earlier this week I saw (another forum) someone paying $200/year for that....

RE: Recommendations for small 5th wheel

Our Arctic Fox 27-5L is short (28') but not light. It grosses over 12K lbs and the newer wide-body models are even heavier. Just to be clear, there are three versions of the 27-5L Current 27-5L's are longer (1 foot) and wider (6 inches). They also have the bedroom slide on the drivers side. Yours has that slide on the other side The even older version didn't have a bedroom slide.

RE: Recommendations for small 5th wheel

My folks have a 25' Nash. There was an Arctic Fox version of it too - 24-5N or something like that. It's older, though - 1999 or 2000 I think. It's been a good trailer for them and they're the original owners. I don't think Northwood makes anything much under 30' these days. You might still check it out, though, as they have a great reputation and 30' is pretty reasonable to pull around. I had one also, the last year they made them model was 2012. They used to make a 19, 21, 23, 25 and 26 foot models also

RE: Monument Valley and Redwood Forest in April

In Monument Valley your only real camping choice is Goulding's RV. . But lots of dry camping within 40 miles The tribe has a no-services campground very near the "action" area. But they also have banned "flat-spotting" by non-tribal members in the rest of the reservation. Of course there is Gooseneck SP, plus lots of BLM land outside the reservation area.

RE: Digital over the air tv.

Height is Might (for antennas) An antenna 2 ft above the roof will usually out perform a similar antenna mounted 6 inches above the roof.

RE: Does costco give discount off of posted fuel price.

Answer is yes and no. No, you pay the posted price. However if you use your costco credit card you will get a 3 percent credit on fuel purchases as part of the annual credit you get on costco purchases. My current running estimate is that the 3 percent alone is going to pay for my CostCo membership
