RE: King bed

Both my DRV and KZ came with factory king beds (only 72 wide...not a real king) and both had plywood about 4" short of the edge of the mattress on either side.

RE: NEW Super C

Noticed the wheelbase difference and long overhang on the DX3. That was one of the reasons we went Renegade. Didn't notice the axle difference but sure liked the DX3 paint.

RE: NEW Super C

Thanks for the reply's. I went with a Renegade Verona (placed an order) for delivery summer of 2017. Need a few weeks to swap the stuff from my 5er so it will go up for sale after receipt of Renegade. Sure wanted the Classic with the Cascadia but just a few too many $ for me. Would have been the perfect choice but we'll make do. I agree the DX3 just didn't make it on quality but one level up (Dynaquest?) was great but again too many $.

RE: Pin box 5th Airborne 5th. wheel

Mine takes 125psi to hit the marks that say "fill to here". Called Reese to inquire and they said 125 was OK but don't go higher. I usually go 100-110 and needs to be filled every trip as it loses air. Would get non air hitch next time (had Mor ryde before which was great)....too much trouble always adding air.

RE: Is it just my imagination or what?

Not sure where you guys are but it seems more crowded than ever in the west. RV sales are up as far as I know so they need to go somewhere.

RE: Black tank valve sticking

Tried all the fixes (ice in tank etc) with no results. The only thing that works is to remove the valve and lube it. If you go that far you might just as well replace the valve and seals.

RE: 08 Fleetwood Quantum slide locks

Most rvs really don't need slide locks unless there is a problem. I had hydraulic slides that wandered out while driving so I made my own out of 4 X 4s. Looking at getting a renegade motorhome (new 2017) and it comes with slide locks....not sure I will use them. Not sure on your walking question....if the rv has a floor you can walk on it even if the floor is part of the slide. It might wiggle a bit when pulled in but you can walk/sit in it. I have seen slide locks the odd time in Camping World if you want to buy them.

RE: Hydraulic slide out issues while traveling

Had Lippert Hydraulics in my Elite Suite. Slides would wander out while driving. Went to about 5 different shops where they replaced rams, solinoids (but no pump) etc with no improvement. Had to travel with slide locks (4X4s) to keep the slides closed. Eventually the one slide wouldn't go in or out. Next shop said it was an easy fix, so I said "great take it on trade for one of your new 5ers" They did so who knows if it ever got fixed. I know my story doesn't help you, just wanted you to know you are not alone. My current rv has no hydraulics (all electric jacks and slides). I can deal with motors and wires.

RE: slideout roof on fiver

Had the same problem on 2 rvs which showed up on 1st year of owning both.(DRV Elite Suite and KZ Escalade)

RE: How many pounds in your air bags?

Bags in what? (truck suspension, air hitch, air pin box) I have a 5th Airborne pin box. I checked with Reese and was told max 125psi. I usually put 100 in before hookup.

RE: Satellite tv

Have Dish pay as you go. Kind of nice as you can start and stop coverage at any point. Started with a Pathway 2 dish. Its now for sale...what a pain. It sets up by itself but it takes about 20-30 minutes, a cloud goes by and it loses the signal and takes 20-30 minutes to reset. Have tripod mounted dish now (old school) and its way better. Anyone interested in my Pathway, I'll be in Vegas in Nov.

RE: Savanah, ga

We like the RED Gate. Close to downtown, on a farm (kind of interesting with the animals) not many sites but large sites. We tried Savanah Oakes as well but location was poor, smaller sites, lots of trees.

RE: NEW Super C

Thanx for replies. Building to suit is a difficult option as we live in the rv. Need to sell the current rv (or trade in) when we get the new one. No other place to stay. As we are in the west and from Canada, dealers with stock on the lot are few and pretty much non existent in Canada. Selling Canadian vehicles in the USA is possible but a big hassle (need to import to the USA before selling). All the problems can be solved and I'm sure we will. Just looking to narrow down choices at this point and appreciate all your responses. Thanx.

NEW Super C

After almost 10 years fulltiming in a 5er, we're thinking of moving to a new Super c. Looking at Renegade Verona or Dynamex DX3. Like the Verona (also more $ than DX3) but DX3 is easier to find on a lot. We're likely a year away from making the move and looking for opinions or suggestions. Not interested in used (like to create my own problems with something new) and would need to trade in my 5er and potentially my F-350 dually. PS...like the Seneca but need a kingish bed and a residential fridge which the Seneca doesn't have room for.

RE: RGV RV Parks

Stayed in RGV 3 times at Bentsen Grove in Mission, Victoria Palms, Donna, and Llano Grande in Mercedes. None were close to stores but there are hundreds of parks in the valley. Suggest you look at something like rvparkreviews to find something. Prices can be great but I would stay closer to the coast (Padre) next time if possible. Its a long drive from a place like Mission.

RE: 2014-2016 Dodge and Chevy owners

If you get a 2011 or newer Ford you will get much better mileage. Had an 08 F-450 with mileage like yours....my 2012 is significantly better. Can you tell me about what you are getting? Don't keep track very often but last week went 230 miles (towing 15000#) and took just under 20 gal to fill it when I arrived. Really don't use it for daily driving. 30K miles on it, pretty much all towing.

RE: ladder

Doubt there is much behind the screws but the ladder definitely needs more. The 2 fivers I have owned both had much to be desired in terms of ladder securement. Heads of screws broke off on my DRV ladder and I never hung anything off of it. Would never use the supplied ladder to access the roof.

RE: Never Lube Bearings

After 5 years Camping World said I needed them replaced with the brakes. Estimate was $6700 complete and the bearings were about what you were quoted. I went elsewhere for a better price. The bearings were $215 each and the install was about $400 so almost the same as your CW quote. The rest of the job was pricy but a couple grand less than the CW price in total.

RE: Edmonton Alberta Area RV Spot

Edm rv parks are not the greatest. Wetaskiwin was OK, Camrose is nice(full service).In Edmonton we usually stay in Stoney Plain (west of Edm) but its not where you want to be. Camrose is likely your best bet.
