RE: first post help

If you do indeed have the a 2012 5.3 with the max tow package I think you should be able to tow that TT. I have a year older similar truck and tow a a little lighter TT without even over the Rockies. The six speed tranny really makes a big difference. You don't need a diesel dually to pull everthing.

RE: Will RidEx decompose flushables?

When I winterize I put in a little antifreeze and water in the black tank with Rid X and leave all winter. My theory is that stuff tends to build up in there and DW flushes wipes down. Have done this for almost 30 years and 5 RVs and never had a dump problem.

RE: Need Help with Mystery Leak

You might want to check the A/C especially if you havn't tightened the bolts for awhile, don't over torgue it ruins the gasket. Water travels and can end up in strange places. Had water from the A/C end up in our rear bath about 10 ft away.

RE: Anything worth visiting in Northwestern New Mexico?

If you only go to one of these ancient ruins I suggest it should be Chaco Canyon and we have visited many of the others. Yes the road in is terrible but if you take your time it can be done. Think it would be OK with your rig, just make sure everything is secure. Campground is no service but free, first come. Recommend some ant spray. Take some water only drinking water availble, no dump. Overnight in the canyon is really special only a short distance to the ruins. Awsome place very special.

RE: I-75 South with a by-pass of the hills in Tenesee

Just my opinion - We have used I 75 from Dayton to Florida many times over the years both with MH and TT and unless you really have a hard time on the grades you will just be adding miles to your trip. We go right through Atlanta staying in the middle lanes.

RE: Wytheville KOA, VA

We generally use Stony Fork Federal Campround just off I-77 exit 47. In the mountains not very far out of town. Very nice campground, water and electric and generally not many campers.

RE: Great Basin RV spots

We have stayed in the park twice both time in the upper campgrounds. It's a steep climb but also some nice sites up there. Even some for bigger rigs. Also a lower campground. A lot of the sites are smaller but you should be able to find a good site. Cave tour is great, need to make a reservation especially on weekends. Few people and great hiking.

RE: Long trip tow vehicle maintenance

I've always used full synthetic oil since we generally do a lot of mountain pulling. Change when the vehicle monitor says to and shouldn't have any problems, easily do a 3K trip on an oil change even with the reg oil.

RE: How is I-75 in Ohio?

Be aware that there is a traffic satefy program going on I-75 all states to prevent speeding. May still be going on Thursday. Last week there were numerous radars in TN, Kentucky and Ohio. Also the construction through downtown Dayton can cause delays during rush hour.

RE: Roswell and Alamogordo how much to do, how long to stay

Stationed at White Sands years ago and been back a couple times. White Sands National Monument is a must (a few hours) and the newer Space Museum in Alamagordo is worth a visit. They also do or did do a tour of the Trinity Atom Bomb test site once a month which is really worth seeing. There is a public campground that,s pretty good a few miles south and there is a decent campgound in Cloudcroft if you preper the mountains. Nothing much in Rosewell if your not into aliens, be off better off snesking into the missile range and try to find the Spanish gold hidden in Victorio Peak.

RE: Chipmonk & Squirrel Damage Prevention Light?

Thanks for all the responses. Some new ideas to try. I have the big rat trap and they trip it but yet to get one. My wife won't let me kill anything so I try to keep her from seeing it. Think I'll try lights next.

Chipmonk & Squirrel Damage Prevention Light?

After $1000 truck damage and less on our riding mower I am depserate for a solution. I have tried almost everything, fresh cap, critter ridder, moth balls, dryer sheets, live traps, D Con, plugged holes, old beagle dog, noise transmitter, and etc. with no lasting effect. DW won't let me shoot them. These things seem to work for mice but not on the bigger rodents. They just chew another hole in the shed and have to chase them out of the engine compartment of my truck most every day. Only thing I have not tried was leaving the light on in the shed and puting a light under the hood of the truck. Has anyone made this work? I'm thinking of maybe a solar light. Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Dish Tail Gater for ever REAUTHORIZING

We use ours for both TT and cabin and have to do the reset often - Just tell them to ship the silly checklist and reset the the receiver. Most will do it, if they won't hang up and try someone else

RE: HELP! - TV Mice/Rats Question

Had the same problem with mice with my riding lawn mover, they kept building nests inside and chewing the air filter and other plactic stuff. Fresh cab and Critter Ridder works for short periods but puting D-Con where they can find it is the only good solution. The bigger problems are the squirrels that caused a $1000 damage to my truck. I have tried everything to keep them away with no success. Can't find poison any the Squirrels and chipmonks to eat.

RE: The dreaded confuzzled newbie

Our first TT had a dry listed dry weight of 2700 lbs but actual scale weight was near 3200. When we put stuff in and added a little travel water it was near 4000. We towed it with a V6 Sonoma pickup for two seasons and even took it over the rockies twice. We had used the Sonoma as a toad for our MH,so didn't want to buy a new truck right away when we sold it. Realy never had a problem but it was a lot better when we got a bigger truck and we actually got better gas mileage. Just be aware that your actual wieghts will be hire than what the manufacturer claims. Only way to find out is to put it on a scale.
