RE: Northern CA and Southern Oregon Camping in April

Well I am Leaving for Calif. late Feb. and should hit the northern Calif coast by first or 2nd week of March with reservations at Cape Lookout SP just south of Astoria but other than some rain like Oregon gets it should be good.

RE: Exhaust brake service

Mine is on 100% of the time, the switch stays in the on position all the time, even when I am home driving locally around town. saves on brakes ect. Dealer told me to run it all the time. Hasn't hurt my truck at all.

RE: mor ryde

I had the ole standard axle system with a rear kitchen 5th wheel and boy did we have trouble keeping things where they belong after a few hundred miles, so I made the drive OKC to MorRydes factory in Goshen and had the ole suspension system rip out and install the Independent system and WOW what a difference!!! No more mess in the 5er. Left there plant and traveled in Canada and down to the outer Banks then back to OKC and no problem. That was 4 years ago and we have traveled many miles since in all kinds of conditions and nothing but superb performance from the system. Well worth the money. I also added the MorRyde hitch pin too, again another MorRyde product worth the money.

RE: Fifth Wheel Brakes - Owner's Survey

RE: Best Route to Pacific Coast from I - 5

Thanks, everyone, from the sounds of it I think I will do 299 that way I can see the northern most part of Calif coast which I haven't been that far north on the Calif. coast then I will be able to see all of the Oregon Coast.

RE: Best Route to Pacific Coast from I - 5

I will be traveling from the south, Sacramento, Calif. going North. I am leaning towards Hwy 299 but heard its curvy. I am still in Oklahoma but will be headed out that way in late February and one of my stops will be in Sacramento visiting Family so I will be traveling North to Oregon in early March.

Best Route to Pacific Coast from I - 5

Hey, I am looking for the best route to pull a 34ft 5er from Interstate 5 either from the Redding area or from the southern Oregon border. I will be traveling from Sacramento to Lincoln City Oregon but do not want to travel the northern Calif. coast since I have done that before. More interested in starting my drive up the coast from the Oregon border. I know there are only 2 or 3 routes but which is best.

RE: Porpoising (Bucking) Fifth Wheel

I solved all that with a MorRyde Hitch pin. I use cruise control all the time.

Anyone run Nitto Tire on their Tow Vehicle? I have a 06 Dodge Ram 3500 Dually. Pull a 34ft 5th wheel. I am looking at the LTX Michelin but stopped at Big O Tires and they were trying to sell me the Nitto tires but they also carry the Michelins LTX. Give me your opinions.

RE: Dogs in bathrooms

I own a certified Therapy Dog (Therapy Dogs International) don't confuse a Therapy Dog and a Service Dog, a Service dog has rights to go where a person can go but a Therapy dog can not go the same places without permission. A Therapy Dog is a dog that is very calm and friendly to all people and is very easy to be controlled. Loves to be petted.

RE: Less fuel stops

I have a 100 Gallon Transfer tank/toolbox combo in the back of my Dodge (total onboard fuel = 135 Gallons) and can get to Yuma easily from OKC without having to stop and buy fuel but I have to stop and pump the fuel, I have an external electric pump instead of the gravity feed. What I have heard is if you have a fuel mileage readout in your truck it could create a check engine light due to the fact that the trucks computer sees that for a long time your tank remains full and confuses the computer and throws a check engine light thinking something is wrong.

RE: morryde rubber suspension equalizer failure

Its called Crawling underneath and do a Regular full inspection of the under carriage including the Rubber springs. I do believe MorRyde includes in their informational material to do regular inspections looking for deteriorations and cracks. Eliminates breakdowns on the road.

RE: Trailer Suspension Upgrade / Help

I have a rear kitchen and had your same problems but added the MorRyde IS Suspension and solved all my problems. You may not have the money or out of your budget but its the only thing going to solve your problems. Love it and MorRyde was great to deal with.

RE: Good Sam Extended Warranty

And that's why when mine expired I did not renew it no matter how many times they call me to renew it, And you can be sure I tell them why. GS Extended warranties are worthless.

RE: odd water pressure

I would say that as water gets hot in the tank it creates pressure and maybe that's why you may have more pressure on the hot side.

RE: Airconditioners

I had the same problem and found out that the convertor was going bad, remember the starter in that unit is powered by 12 volt so have your convertor checked. the fan on it would run but the compressor would not start. does your 12 volt lights flicker every so often?? that was the beginning signs of my convertor going bad. Its worth a check.
