RE: What truck do we need to haul this 5er?

Pshaaaaaw, a one ton SRW can never handle that monster FW. You need a heavy duty truck (HDT), looks like a typical tractor trailer puller; a nice Volvo would do it. Just kidding, thought I'd play weight police for a moment. Yes, a one ton SRW would handle it nicely.

RE: super glide capture plate not working

You're going to have to call PullRite and maybe send them some photos. It sounds to me that the bottom of your pin box has been damaged, causing the capture plate not to sit flat/flush with the pin box, and the recessed portion of the pin cannot slip into the hitch jaws because of the large gap between the pin box and plate.

RE: Can I insulate the engine shroud?

Absolutely and I'm surprised it didn't come from the factory with a heat/sound shield.

RE: Please tell me about the different types of leveling sytems

I think 6-point leveling is the greatest thing since sliced bread.

RE: Mirror and light on nosecap over hitch?

No deal breaker for me.

RE: Bluewater RV Resort

BWK is very nice. Stay on top of the weather as one can always expect that even a tropical storm could cause damage somewhere in FL. If it sounds serious, get out of town early.

RE: Not being part of the PDI?

HOW ITS SUPPOSED TO WORK 1. You do the PDI and create the hit list of things wrong. 2. You go home, the dealer fixes everything on the list. 3. You schedule the delivery. 4. You show up for the delivery check the unit to make sure all items are fixed. 5. You close the deal. You don't pay the dealer until this step. This, x10. It took about three hours to do my own PDI and found 13 issues, 7 of which were serious. Took the dealership two days to fix the 7 serious issues, after which we accepted the FW and closed the deal, understanding the 6 remaining issues would be fixed later.

RE: Greasing EZ Lube TT axles

Every year's a bit much IMHO. I do it every two years.

Nitrogen=waste of money.

RE: Spring hangers

I think it's a bit odd and I can't visualize a scenario where it would be required. If you're bothered by it (I would be) then it makes sense for both axles to be mounted similarly. I would opt to use the higher set of holes since there would be less lever effect on the spring hangars closest to the frame.

RE: How much should I look to NADA on pricing?

One reason sellers price so high is they're upside down and have to pay off the bank.

RE: Looking at a new 5th wheel

I reread the "general discussion" noted above by BB_TX and have to agree about lack of front storage under the LR. We've only had our front LR two weeks now and have no opinion about excessive heat, yet. We consciously considered the lack of storage and decided since we're not full-time we could travel with less. In fact, the new one swallowed up everything from the Wildcat, with ease, so I'm happy as of now. Now, if you're a packrat, forgeddaboutit.

RE: What is this sitting on my kitchen counter?

Totally guessing here, but nothing that originated with the RV, and possibly bases for some previous owners' kitchen devices.

RE: Best campers for seniors?

Arent the 60's the new 40s, or something like that? Still, I wouldn't want to climb up to a bed. Any FW is going to have the entry steps plus a couple more steps to the upper area. A Class A and TT will only have entry steps.

RE: Montana 3160 RL

We've owned our 37llFL for two weeks so can't comment on long-term. We did a thorough PDI and had 13 issues, with 7 being serious enough not to accept the unit that day. Dealer fixed the 7 issues in two days and I'll probably hit the other 6 very minor issues during our first outing. The unit "appears" to be better built than what we traded in but time will tell; we're hopeful.

RE: How often do yall sanitize your fresh water tank?

I rarely do ours and we've occasionally made coffee out of the tank water, and of course, wash dishes with it. Guess I should do it at least yearly but we can't recall linking any sickness to the tank water.

RE: 5th wheel hitch location vs. weight transfer

The gooseneck ball (removed) and the replacement regular Reese hitch are centered roughly 1" ahead of the axle center in my short bed F350.

RE: Electronic dog fence

They're no perfect cure and it's all about training the dog(s). We had one Sheltie that was untrainable on the fence. He'd look right at me and walked over the signal as if to say, "ain't no problem, see."
