RE: Bunkhouse with 6 point leveling.....

Forest River also makes the Sandpiper and Sierra in the 365SAQB. Bunks with the leveling system.

RE: B&W head height?

I have mine set in the highest position. Works great in both trucks. The primary truck is the '13 F350 and it sits level. Love B&W hitches!

RE: Air Bags or No Air Bags?

I have had airbags and onboard compressor on my last two duallies. I love being able to change the pressure on the fly when the roadways dictate. They take the jar out of bridge expansion joints and level out my ride. Some, but not all of the Big 3 trucks have what is known as "launch shudder" which is a vibration in the drive train, under load, when taking off from a stop. It is caused by the angle difference of the drive shaft to pinion. Like I said, some of the trucks have them. Some don't. Airbags are a great way of stopping that too. I won't tow heavy without them again. Like I said, mine is dually and I have a 3100 pound pin weight. So technically, I don't really need them, but they are fantastic in my opinion.

RE: Air bags for ford f250

I've had airbags on my trucks since 2010(a '10 and '13) and it is a dually! The main reason I did it was to help with the 'launch shudder' that a lot of the new trucks have. All of the big 3 are known to have them. NO-not all of them, just some of them. However, the Firestones I put on helped a great deal not only with keeping the truck level, but taking the 'shock' out of rough roads. I have an on board air compressor so I can adjust on the fly. I won't tow heavy without airbags again.

RE: Sewer Hose Storage

That's funny Dennis!!!! Old retired ones from the college that were being thrown away. Use them to slide under vehicles on the grass.

RE: air bags hold up to cold weather?

Love my airbags and they functioned well here last year at 8* while towing my 16k 5th wheel around. Won't tow heavy without them again.

RE: Thoughts on Firestone TRANSFORCE AT tires

The previous version of them were the Steeltex tires that came on every Ford Super Duty and Excursion from 99-08...Now though, it depends on what size you are looking for. The newer version of the tire is the Transforce AT and I've been running them for close to 120k miles on my Excursion and won't have any other tire. Love the wear and the ride from them. I've tried other tires like the BFG Rugged Trail's that comes on the newer trucks on the Ex, but didn't have favorable results as they are LT265/75/16 size. However the BFGs I just mentioned are doing well on my Ford SD in the size of LT245/75/17....They are both great wearing tires if properly aligned.

RE: Two Sewer Outlets?

I have 2 dump connections and 5 tanks. We love camping so much that this is not even the slightest inconvenience. That (the 5 tanks) rates a WOW!.:B How many are grey - how many black?..:@ Capacities? ~ 2 black at 54 gallons each, 2 gray water(54) and 1 galley(36)(I consider it gray too;)) oh..plus the regular 54 gallon fresh water.

RE: Goodyear G614 tires wheel question

Should not be a problem. I have them on mine as well. Most Rvers have them on 6" rims and just don't know it.

RE: Bicycle carrier front of truck or pin box. (Updated W/pics)

The approach angle would be a concern to me. Happy camping!

RE: Where do your pets ride?

Two 70 pound Aussie/Heelers ride right in the truck with us. They are family, so they ride with the family.

RE: 2013 3500 diesel pickuo

It is called "launch shudder" and all of the Big 3 trucks are prone to it. No, not everyone of them does it, but a lot of them do. Both of my two diesels have had it but it is easily remedied. If it is worse when loaded say, with the weight of a fifth wheel, then you have it. Most easily cured by adding air bags to the vehicle. I know, I know, that's the reason you bought a 350/3500 to begin with is to be able to tow whatever you wanted to! The shudder comes from changing the pinion/drive shaft angle of the rear end. It has been widely documented among all 3 manufacturers as I said. Another way to fix it is to shim the rear end, however that makes it worse when unloaded. I have Firestone Ride-Rites on my dually and an onboard compressor so I can adjust on the fly. Both of my trucks were cured by using the bags as the pinion angle doesn't change as much.

RE: Issues with 8.1 Vortex with Allison Transmission

I have a 2001 and love it. Not enough power to pull my big 5er on the interstates, but a very good dependable truck. Replaced a throttle position sensor(pedal), O2 sensor and a Neutral Start Backup Switch like has already been stated. Good truck. 143,000 miles

RE: B&W Hitch

Congrats on the B&W! I've had my Companion now through 3 trucks, all with Turnover Ball hitched that I put in myself. Now, two of my closest friends have B&Ws too. One with a Ford OEM and one with the Turnover Ball/Companion like mine...oh and two others WANTING one!

RE: Skylight replacement

Krylon Fusion plastic spray paint will protect it from the sun's angry rays. Exactly what I did to my new 5er. Painted it Gloss White Krylon. On my TT toyhauler, it cracked after 5 years. I had to replace it. Not a bad undertaking. Takes about an hour. Videos on YouTube to help. I will replace all of my skylights between 5-6 years due to how brittle the plastic gets.

RE: Bicycle carrier front of truck or pin box. (Updated W/pics)

A version of this will work. This is one I made. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/P1040275.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/P1040271.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/IMG_20120603_113309.jpg Here are a couple of more links to more similar. You could always buy and Arvika though. http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/27284595.cfm This one was made by a FR forum friend. It can be raised slightly to be used on short beds. See the Aquaman post. Aquaman's bike rack
