RE: Any ideas on how to free a rusted ball on B&W hitch?

Is your truck a short bed? If so, I would assume the ball is directly over the rear diff. That would be difficult. If long bed, use a floor jack with something like a 6x6 or something of the sort and put lots of upward pressure on it and leave it overnight. It's gonna take heat and/or constant pressure on it along with penetrants. Also, you might want to give B&W's customer service and see what they say. I'm sure they've run into this before. Their customer service is second to none.

RE: Your Rig

Sold the Sandpiper and picked up this the next day. Took about 8 weeks form time of order. Nothing at all wrong with the Sandpiper, just our son is turning 16 this weekend and has outgrown the bunks. My work partner's daughter bought it for her three kids. We've only been out once, but make that two starting tomorrow! We absolutely love it. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2016%20Montana/IMG_20160402_143010922_zpsxcsqidcv.jpg width=640 http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2016%20Montana/IMG_20160330_114308112_HDR_zpso7pozba7.jpg width=640 http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2016%20Montana/IMG_20160330_114638032_zpssyhqugyk.jpg width=640 http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2016%20Montana/IMG_20160330_120624740_zpsdsf0inrb.jpg width=640 http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2016%20Montana/IMG_20160330_112743190_zpsnfb4yohc.jpg width=640 http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2016%20Montana/IMG_20160330_120559347_zps2iyu5fou.jpg width=640 Moderator edit to re-size pictures to forum recommended limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: Installing plexiglass on screen door

Most screen doors have a channel on the inside around the door areas. If you have a piece of Lexan cut to fit inside those channels the Lexan material has enough flex that you can fit it in. Then use some window screen vinyl spline rope to hold it in place. That's what I did on both of my Sandpipers, but the door of my Montana is a little different and may have to try a different approach.

RE: Goodbye Sandpiper, Hello Montana!

RE: what kind of fifthwheel hitch?

If the gooseneck hitch is a B&W Turnover Ball hitch, I would buy the Companion for it. Part # RVK3500. Go to www.besthitch.com and take a look at them. Will only fit B&W under bed hitches though.

Goodbye Sandpiper, Hello Montana!

It's been a while since I spent some time here, but check in now and again. Just wanted to share that we have sold our 2012 Sandpiper 365SAQ and took our new Montana 3790RD on its maiden voyage last weekend. We ordered it back in January and was delivered Friday before last. Our son was the reason we got it. He will be 16 in two weeks and said he felt he didn't need the bunkhouse anymore. We started looking and found the Montana. He and a friend stayed with us over the weekend and they had a great time with the TV in the rear as well as the sleeping arrangement. We bought each one of them an air mattress to put on the fold out sofas. Pretty comfy if I do say so myself. The 365 didn't go far as my work partner's daughter bought it for her and her three kids. Here are few pics. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2016%20Montana/IMG_20160330_114628472_zpskgbpdcfi.jpg width=640 http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2016%20Montana/IMG_20160330_114308112_HDR_zpso7pozba7.jpg width=640 http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2016%20Montana/IMG_20160330_120624740_zpso94umt9c.jpg width=640 http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2016%20Montana/IMG_20160330_120559347_zpsgokwh8fc.jpg width=640 http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2016%20Montana/IMG_20160330_112743190_zpsvfw96p2o.jpg width=640 The only down side to the new unit is someone at the factory forgot to attach the pull waste gate handles to the actual valves for the black and one grey tank:M Of course, we found that out while trying to leave the campground.

RE: Sailun 637

I've had the G614s for 5 years now and was about to replace them with the S637s. However, just sold camper yesterday and new one came with 614s. I have no problem using the 637s whatsoever. My partner at work has them on her camper(which I recommended) and are great tires. Here in GA we got them for $150.50 each from NTB. When the GYs are in need of replacing on my new one. I will buy the 637s.

RE: Tool Storage/Carrier repair

I use two pieces of nylon webbing about 3/4" wide and sewed velcro on it. I then got a couple of button snaps and screwed them to the case. Used the snap tool to fasten the female side to the ends of the straps. Fasten them together and then use the webbing with velcro to tighten the case together. I have 3 cases done this way.

RE: 6 Point Leveling

Well, after the OP got on the phone with Lippert, the part was overnighted and installed. The system was calibrated and was ready for pickup, however, a tractor trailer delivering to the dealer hit the nose cap of the trailer.:M Camper was sent to body shop and was supposed to be returned today. This weekend may be a possibility yet!!

RE: 6 Point Leveling

According to the OP, I talked to him again today, the system has a bad motherboard. The control head and the other board is fine, but it is going to take over 3 weeks to get the part according to Lippert! Completely floors me that a part will take that long from them. They will not be making our next trip with us which is 10 days away now.:M

RE: fence post sewer hose holder

I used 1" aluminum tubing to drop my posts below the propane line. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20130407_153036_zps965f0dba.jpg I also have these to store my awning poles in. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20130621_115148_zps539b6c2f.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20130621_180519_zpsfb2933fb.jpg

RE: 6 Point Leveling

Hey guys I have a Durango Gold 380FL that I've been camping in for about 6 months now. My last camping trip was about one month ago. This week I attempted to hook the camper up to the truck to move it. Upon doing so, I ran into a problem with the hydraulic jacks. This camper has a 6 point leveling system on it. When attempting to raise or lower the jacks, they won't move an inch. The control panel is on and working, but the jacks do not respond. I have checked all fuses and all seem to be intact. Any troubleshooting ideas from people who have similar setups? Well, let's see Dillon. I think we figured it out for the weekend, but glad now it's at the dealer. I still do not understand why KZ sends you a packet full of 10amp fuses because they keep blowing. Monty

RE: Another septic hose support system

At campgrounds like Myrtle Beach, the sewer drains stick out of the ground about 8" as well as usually being at the rear of the camper. The PVC stands would work great. However, I made this up a few years ago and it takes about 15 minutes to set up using the levelers I usually carry, plus a sections of symmetrical gutters and a Sidewinder. Using this you don't have to walk the junk out of the lines every time. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20120717_174020.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20120720_063942.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20120720_063951.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20120717_180013.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20120717_174032.jpg

RE: Going Through Atlanta

Thanks for the replies. It's good to get input from those familiar with the area. One more question for those from Atlanta. How late on. January Monday does rush hour go on? I had guessed we would be going through around 8:00, but if we got there earlier, I wouldn't want to get stuck in rush hour. What would be the earliest I should try to go through? Thanks again. Mark I live in the Atlanta area as well. Like others have said, stay off of 285. It is ranked in the nation's deadliest interstates. The rush hours in the ATL last until around 9 in all directions. A few years ago, many businesses started staggering their start times to offset the trouble their employees had getting to work on time.

RE: Sandpiper thoughts/opinions/rants?

I have the '12 365SAQ in my Sig. We've loves every minute of owning it except for the debate over the 7k axles that FR resolved. If anything happened to this camper and our son is still with us, I would buy another in a heartbeat! The new ones have 7k axles and a redesigned master bath. This unit has the best floorplan on the market for those of us with kids in my opinion. One thing I would suggest is to change the tires out to either Goodyear G615s or the Sailun S637s and enjoy!

RE: 6.7 Fuel Mileage

I have the '13 6.7 DRW 4x4 in my sig. Two weeks ago I returned from a 900 mile round trip to Myrtle Beach towing my 15,500 pound 5er and averaged 9.85 mpg with the 3.73 rear gears. Most in my group say that the '15 and '16s are getting a about 1.5 mpg worse than the '11-'14s did, but love the exhaust brake so much that they don't care. Of course, most of them do not have enough miles on them to have really broken the engine in yet. I am TOTALLY happy with my 6.7. I would only like the better exhaust brake, but I don't travel in the mountains around here that much.

RE: Has anyone attached kayaks to the rear ladder?

I put on a front hitch, Thule cross bars on truck and a Rhino-Rack T-Loader front carrier and carry mine like this. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2013%20Dually/20150412_092719_zpsowqpl2f5.jpg width=640 Moderator edit to re-size picture to forum recommended limit of 640px maximum width.
